Lamborghini rebrands phones and sell them 6x their original price without a charger

Some people may think that when they are purchasing a 'luxury' phone from a 'brand' name they are getting the best.

The reality is that the 'luxury' brand is getting a cheap phone and putting their name on it, with some of their own coverings.

Looks like it's one company hiding another company manufactured product.

Lamborghini's $2450 re-birthed $400 ZTE does not even have a charger.

Capitalistic (tight arse) pigs..

Al least BlackBerry's "Porsche Design" phones have 4 chargers.

Lamborghini Mobile has launched the Alpha-One Android smartphone for $2450. It will be available at Harrod's in the UK and multiple retailers in the UAE. It is also available on the company's website.

The Alpha-One is a reasonably straightforward high-end Android smartphone, with a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display and a 20 megapixel camera. Powering it is the Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It even has a set of stereo speakers as well as a dedicated DAC and AMP, along with Dolby Atmos audio. The phone runs on a 3,250mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0, although a charger is not provided with the phone. Lastly, it comes with Android 7.0 Nougat.

To somewhat justify the cost, the Alpha-One has an Italian leather back and liquid metal for the side frame. An Italian leather case is also provided with the phone.

For all intents and purposes, the Alpha-One is a rebranded Axon 7 with the same specifications and same overall structure, just in a different set of materials. Except that the ZTE phone costs $400 and comes with a charger.

Victoria Police states while assaulting a minor "I can do whatever I want"

Victoria Police have been trained that the law that applies to the herd population does not apply to them or the 'administration'.

Sussan Ley another MP sitting in office unlawfully

Looks like this is a fair dinkum "Nigerian Scammer",
scamming from the Australian Tax payers for a life / job she is not lawfully entitled to.

But don't worry they are 'protected' from criminal prosecution.

Is Shiva Ayyadurai conning the world that he invented Email as a 14 year old?

Apparently there is a bit of a law suit going on, to the tune of 15 million US dollars, by a V.A Shiva Ayyadurai that he invented Email in 1978 as a 14 year old.

When we delve in a bit deeper, we are told that Ray Tomlinson (an ARPANET contractor) was credited with inventing email (with the use of the "@" symbol) in 1972.

Remember the "good ol' days" of ARPANET in Australia?

We do, and most certainly Ayyadurai was NOT credited as the inventor of eMail.

Sounds like a claim with no grounds or a vendetta against free speech, by putting individuals out of business for reporting the truth?

YOU be the 'judge' !

While you're at it;

Crank out a bit of jury,

and don't forget the executioner.

Techdirt's First Amendment Fight For Its Life

from the the-first-amendment-has-to-mean-something dept

As you may have heard, last week we were sued for $15 million by Shiva Ayyadurai, who claims to have invented email. We have written, at great length, about his claims and our opinion — backed up by detailed and thorough evidence — that email existed long before Ayyadurai created any software. We believe the legal claims in the lawsuit are meritless, and we intend to fight them and to win.

There is a larger point here. Defamation claims like this can force independent media companies to capitulate and shut down due to mounting legal costs. Ayyadurai's attorney, Charles Harder, has already shown that this model can lead to exactly that result. His efforts helped put a much larger and much more well-resourced company than Techdirt completely out of business.

So, in our view, this is not a fight about who invented email. This is a fight about whether or not our legal system will silence independent publications for publishing opinions that public figures do not like.

And here's the thing: this fight could very well be the end of Techdirt, even if we are completely on the right side of the law.

Whether or not you agree with us on our opinions about various things, I hope that you can recognize the importance of what's at stake here. Our First Amendment is designed to enable a free and open press — a press that can investigate and dig, a press that can challenge and expose. And if prominent individuals can make use of a crippling legal process to silence that effort, or even to create chilling effects among others, we become a weaker nation and a weaker people because of it.

We are a truly small and independent media company. We do not have many resources. We intend to fight this baseless lawsuit because of the principles at stake, but we have no illusions about the costs. It will take a toll on us, even if we win. It will be a distraction, no matter what happens. It already has been — which may well have been part of Ayyadurai's intent.

I am beyond thankful to the many of you who have reached out and offered to help in all sorts of ways. It is heartening to know so many people care about Techdirt. At some point soon, we may set up a dedicated legal defense fund. But, in the meantime, any support you can provide us will help — whether it's just alerting people to this situation and the danger of trying to stifle a free press through meritless lawsuits, or it's supporting Techdirt directly (or, if you have a company, advertising with us). As always, you can support us directly as a Friend of Techdirt, or check out some of the other perks you can get in our Insider program. You can also support us via Patreon.

If freedom of expression and the press is to actually mean something, it needs to be protected, not stomped on with baseless lawsuits that silence independent voices and opinions.

Accuweather sends your location and router data to revealmobile

There are many traps in the IT world that con people into giving their private and confidential data to deliberately undisclosed sources.

Some of these traps can be spotted a mile away whereas others can be hidden in apps.

The U.S. company called Accuweather (which apparently has 450 employees) has encoded into its Apple operating system weather app actions that take the physical location of your phone/device and the Wi-Fi router it connects to, and passes it on to another company called revealmobile.com.

Now, was the user made aware of this?

The mind truly does boggle why users need (weather) apps, given that there are only a few sources where the weather data comes from.

For Australians weather data comes from a government resource called the Bureau of Meteorology.

So, the mindless app consumer may say;

"is there an app for that?"

In this case there is no need to have the added expenditure of making apps for the various mobile operating system out there, only jut one set of code that automatically adjusts to your device's screen dimensions;

Apps ARE bad... mmmmmmkaaay.
