Another reason to not spend time on Facebook

Leo Leporte reports that Facebook has added a new “Feature”.  Automatically uploading your mobile device photos to Facebook.

That’s right, all your photos, straight to Facebook.  If you were paying attention to the “user agreement”, Facebook reserves the right to use everything you load on it, including pictures, anyway they see fit.

That Facebook gets the right to use your stuff is nothing new.  Been that way since just about Day One, if not before.

Here is a basic rule of the Internet you Coppertops need to understand.

If you aren’t paying for the service, you are the product.

 

iPhone firmware 3.1 BETA

Firmware version 3.1 has just entered BETA.

Here are some of the highlights.

Bluetooth support for Voice Control.  So finally, my iPhone “smartphone” will be able to do wihat my old Motorola Razr did from day one.  Tap the button on a Bluetooth headset and initiate a call simply by speaking.

MMS may or may not be supported. Depends on AT&T approval.

Small improvements to the video editing.

There are a few other minor features, but I’m expecting there will be a number of bug fixes in the release that won’t make the public annoucements, including anti-jail break features.
