Kickstarter has had another new buzz moment with Pressy aka the “Almighty Button” Pressy plugs into any Android device's headphone port (Gingerbread and above) and

 

allows an end user to set up clicks for various activities like short clicks to speed-dial your mom or one long press to snap an unobtrusive picture. its 0.7mm-tall and developed


by the delightful Nimmy & Bozzy(Absolutely not kidding here).


Its an accessory to a smartphone that has been perfectly pitched (You must absolutely watch that video in the source link!), but does it really make a difference to our 
smartphone experience, I truly can't say. What I would definitely like to know is how was it all done, how does this 0.7mm hardware piece control functions on smartphones
both on the device and remotely when connected to its keychain. Well they are promising to deliver in 4 months so maybe will soon find out, anyway its about time Android 
add-ons populate the market I think it would be good to compare tends now with those already existing in the iOS environment, anyone tried the indoor helicopter controller by
Apple yet???

“BT and Vodafone are among seven large telecoms firms which could face legal action under human rights law for colluding with British spy agency GCHQ and failing to protect customers' privacy rights.


Lawyers for the group Privacy International have written to the chief executives of the telecoms companies, which were identified last week by the German paper Suddeutsche Zeitung as collaborating with GCHQ's mass surveillance program, Tempora.”


Setting aside the pending legal issues for a moment, I asked myself, how exactly did Tempora do this? Apparently they tapped directly into the Undersea fiber Optic cables this means that they most likely deployed some fast - attack submarines, and combat divers...wow, lets hope the bunch of Internet Traffic they collected is worth the storm of Legal, Equipment, and Labour fees they incurred.

We have just about hit our 6 month mark here in Brighton & Hove, and what a six months it has been.

 Brighton and Hove has proved beyond doubt to be a vibrant and talented community for Software Engineering and Digital developments, and we are looking forward to September which has a whole month of Digital events spread out across the City. Just had a look this weekend at the BDF website and the events page is out !

 And we have a couple or favourites in the "Hack" Category already.

  Big Data Hackathon - Data Story telling: The Global Financial Crises and recovery.

  Pablo: the launch.

  Building Data Visualisations with D3.

  Super fused.

And lots more...
