    Days after a California driver escaped a traffic conviction over wearing Google Glass behind the wheel, the search company's augmented-reality device is once again testing the law. On Saturday, an Ohio man was detained for several hours by federal agents who suspected him of recording "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" in his local movie theater using Glass's video function.

    "About an hour into the movie," Columbus-based Tiberiu Ungureanu told The Gadgeteer, "a guy comes near my seat, shoves a badge that had some sort of a shield on it, yanks the Google Glass off my face and says, 'follow me outside immediately.'" ...

    In the wake of the U.S. disaster, Payza has now relaunched their UK operations. The popular online payment platform has resumed operations with the United Kingdom in full force. This move comes after the November 26th, 2013 catastrophe that resulted with U.S. based funds seized in over 30 states. Eventually the issue spread to all 50 states and Payza experienced a country wide blockade. The problem still persists in the United States and the situation has left hundreds of thousands of users frustrated to say the least. As a result of the funds being frozen and the ongoing investigation by the United States Department Of Justice, Payza needed to do something substantial to help off-set the loss. This could be exactly what the company needed. ...

    The number of illicit digital copies is not as high as reported by industry trade organizations, according to a large-scale analysis of BitTorrent file-sharing of videogames.

    Anders Drachen from the Department of Communication and Psychology at Aalborg University and the PLAIT Lab at Northeastern University as well as Robert Veitch from the Department of IT Management at Copenhagen Business School analysed a the filesharing of some 173 computer games over a three-month period between 2010 and 2011.

    They set out to study videogame piracy because "despite the substantial debate about digital game piracy, there is minimal objective information available about the relative magnitude of piracy, or its distribution across different countries nor across game titles or game genres" ...

    ThePirateBay, which has seen it’s share of the spotlight in the past, has had consistent pressure on their domains once again in recent days. Since TPB first opened doors they have had nearly 20 different domain extensions. In the past 2 days alone, TPB has gone from .sx, to .ac to .pe. The .SX belonging to the tiny island of Sint Maarten, .ac belonging to the UK’s Ascension Island and .pe belong to Peru. The most recent .pe domain will only be a temporary solution as Peru authorities will be soon to seize this domain as well. As a result ThePirateBay will move to a new extension shortly. If they were able to acquire thepiratebay.so or thepiratebay.ag it would be ideal. These are two of the safest locations (Angola & Burma or Somalia) to register domains and it would make sense if the ship attempted to sail there. ...

    File-Sharing Site Was A Year-Long Pirate Honeypot

    A site founded by a former moderator of one of the most popular file-hosting and uploader hangouts has admitted today that his site was a honeypot setup to capture data on pirate activity.

    Everyone who knows what Usenet is and downloads binaries from it regularly, is familiar with the main problem of this network - it's not censored and nobody verifies the files posted to it. Nobody cares about verifying Nzb files that will be uploaded to Usenet daily. This leads to such problems like fake, password protected, virus infected or incomplete archives. Classical search engines like Binsearch, NZBClub or NZBIndex provide a Usenet search and just index the Nzbs without real check of its quality. Also many new Newznab based indexers appeared on the market have no possibility to verify the content and provide high quality search. This was my motivation to write about new, innovative service - Usenet browser UsenetHub. ...
