Infowars.com Censored in Greece

(Infowars) – An Infowars.com reader sent an email today informing us that our website is no longer available in Greek public libraries. “Prisonplanet.com is still accessible, but it’s only a matter of time before the Greek censors notice attention has shifted to that website, and move in to ban it as well,” she writes. “This isn’t just a local library banning access to Infowars.com, but is a nationwide ban: the digital traffic filters, through which all traffic from and to Greek public libraries passes, are located in and controlled from Athens (National Technical University of Athens), so yes, THIS IS A NATION WIDE BAN!”

Obama Can Shut Down Internet For 4 Months Under New Emergency Powers

(PaulWatson) – President Obama will be handed the power to shut down the Internet for at least four months without Congressional oversight if the Senate votes for the infamous Internet ‘kill switch’ bill, which was approved by a key Senate committee yesterday and now moves to the floor.

The Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, which is being pushed hard by Senator Joe Lieberman, would hand absolute power to the federal government to close down networks, and block incoming Internet traffic from certain countries under a declared national emergency. Continue reading

IBM wants traffic lights to stop your car

(PhysOrg) – The system would be able to receive position information from vehicles waiting at red lights to determine a queue of participating vehicles stopped at the signal. It would then determine the time still to elapse before the lights turn green, and if this time is over a set threshold (such as two minutes) the traffic light would then send signals to the vehicle engines to stop them.

When the lights turn green, a “start-engine notification” would be sent to the front vehicle to start its engine first, and a signal would be sent to the second vehicle in the queue an “optimal time” later, and so on.

The IBM patent says the system could be applied to traffic signals at intersections, railway crossings, or other transportation signals for “indicating correct moments to stop and to proceed.” Its stated aims are to reduce wastage of fuel and optimize the movement of vehicles through the intersection or crossing.

Can IBM car technology pose threat to gun rights?

(Examiner) – IBM has hacked into a car. Now the multinational technology giant has applied for a patent to “manag[e] engines in response to a traffic signal.”

From news.com.au:

If you’re crawling through traffic in 2025 and approach a traffic light, IBM hopes it will be able to take control of your car.

And according to the patent, you won’t be able to go again until it lets you.

…With a laptop and customised software called CarShark, the researchers disabled the brakes of a regular family car and switched its engine off – while it was moving.

Naturally, there’s “good” reason given for doing this. In a word: “safety.”

It seems to be the standard excuse for giving up all kinds of freedom to government control these days. Continue reading
