WhatsApp blocked once more in Brazil for failing to hand over user data

One of the wonderful things about end-to-end encryption in messaging apps is, as long as it's implemented correctly, nobody but you or the person you're chatting with should be able to see those messages. Unfortunately for WhatsApp, judges in Brazil don't seem to understand how that works. Yes, Brazil's at it again, as the office of Judge Daniela Barbosa Assunção de Souza in Rio De Janerio has ordered five carriers to block WhatsApp until it turns over data associated with a criminal case.

How Pokemon GO tips make cheats – and a plea for good

How Pokemon GO tips make cheats – and a plea for good

Pokemon GO cheaters have arisen. Hacks have been initiated, and spoofing of data has begun to be sent to Niantic. Not long after this revolutionary game has been put out into the world, users have taken advantage of its loopholes. With Niantic busy putting out server fires and keeping the game online as long and as constant as possible, there's ample space for exploits. What I'd like to do today is speak with both the cheaters and Niantic, and send a plea out into the world for some reasonable action.

UPDATE: Niantic has taken some big steps toward stopping cheaters! Have a peek at the most recent update report.
