Guns & Roses living up to their name…

2 09 2008

A 27-year-old blogger was arrested and released on $10,000 bail after being accused of streaming songs from the unreleased Guns N’ Roses album “Chinese Democracy” on his web site without permission.

Kevin Cogill, also known as Skwerl, uploaded the songs onto his Antiquiet web site in June for all visitors to hear. Shortly there after he received a cease and desist letter from Guns N’ Roses lawyers, and then reportedly removed the songs from his web site. His web site reportedly crashed due to the heavy server load from visitors heading to the web site to listen to the unreleased tracks.   (more……)

Chicago Olympics on your iPhone?

31 07 2008

Dan Butterfield has been keeping us updated on developments in China and their handheld market, which is going into hyper-drive with 08.08.08 just next week.   Good reading….

Cannot say the same for ZDNet blog: Between the lines Tom Steinert-Threlkeld’s recent post Tech `tips’ for Beijing visitors, left me wondering when did a technology blog turn to social awareness.  So I drop them a line.

It is obvious Dan and Tom (more Tom) don’t know each other.   Each Olympic venue since the 1900’s has been a catalyst of new ideas and technology aimed at giving benefit to the world, 2008 is no exception.   With suveillance camera deployment taking the highlights, it becomes lost a potential new break through in broadcasting is within our grasp – streaming video from surveillance over handheld units.

The content here is simple.  Alternative use for surveillance cameras in a positive direction.   Streaming video is not new, but we now have a new source.   One that needs to be explored by individuals with better intentions than just finding criminal activity.

Chicago has the greatest lake front of any major city in the world, parks second to nobody and a surveillance infrastructure to boot.   Alder Planetarium for a couple of years had webcams outside the facility where the public could log into and actually control the cameras and look up and down the lake front.  From Navy Pier, along Michigan Ave, even Sundays we could watch the tail-gaters for Bears games.   All this came to an end for obvious reasons.

China is considered #1 for surveillance,  London (2012 host) is considered 2nd,  Chicago (still in running for 2016) is laying claim to 3rd.   Olympics needs to be broadcasted on the one vehicle everyone outside the US has, handheld devise.   You know the wheels are turning in Chicago, cause it’s Chicago, utilizing the surveillance infrastructure as a feed (for sale mind you).   The networks could never lay claim to anything like that.   I can see the alderman now laying claim to their neighborhood’s and selling the feed.

China streaming CCTV on iPhones 3G

21 07 2008

Big thanks too: for posting this on

iPhonAsia believes there is a case to be made for Apple and China Mobile collaborating on a special production run of iPhone 3G. I am calling this TD iPhone 3G as it would include a chipset that supports TD-SCDMA and China Multimedia Mobile Broadcasting CMMB – streaming CCTV mobile TV. What might this mean for Apple? A minimum 2 million units.

This is exactly what I have been preaching about. Obviously the Olympics being the highlight is great content. I’m curious what the content will be in say 9 months or a year from now. Doubt it will be Human Rights Protest.

Apple please by all means learn everything you can about deploying this possibility. The rest of the world needs an alternative use too CCTV.

$25 a month – DVR remote access

18 07 2008

That’s right – in most cases your provider will charge you an additional $25 for a static IP address.

Following up on a previous post: PC Based vs Stand Alone

DVR units do have the ability to grant remote access. Something at the time of your purchase you most likely did not even consider. With the ever changing needs we view Surveillance like any other technology – why not just add a utility or appliance to my current set.

Simple enough until you take the road of getting a Static IP Address to accomplish your task. $25 a month additional means $300 a year. Sorry, I am somewhat of a miser when spending money and having an extra $300 is not part of the plan. This is what has given birth to PC Based Solutions, your already paying for an IP Address with your provider why have (2) addresses just to get access.

Police State 2.0 – China’s Surveillance Lab

16 07 2008

China’s All-Seeing Eye – installing over 250,000 CCTV units by 2010

This article was overlooked by many until yesterday when Naomi actually re-printed a post on Her insight into the current status of this experiment addresses many issues, but instead of feeding the others so bent on the negative side of things lets present the other side.

“Shenzhen. The result was a city of pure commerce, undiluted by history or rooted culture — the crack cocaine of capitalism.”

Where else on the planet can the exploitation of surveillance thrive? Or in this case a “LIVE LAB” be found. The opportunity for manufactures to freely develop and prefect the technology cannot be found anywhere else.

This is Capitalism – taking advantage of situations especially when the government is whole-heartedly behind the effort, Right or Wrong. No-one agrees with the policies or Human-Rights issues when MONEY is involved. Regardless of the statue the come back is simple: are they living a better life 30 years later? Seems so….

The problem I have, this “Golden Shield” theory will encompass the free world and isolate the people. (we must be blind goats) Why not just join the growing number of individuals around the world that believe in the New World Order an live in fear the rest of your life – what a waste of time.

“The local people want to make money from migrant workers, but they don’t want to give them rights. But why are the local people so rich? Because of the migrant workers!”

Welcome to Immigration Rights – the bloodiest political issue facing American’s today. China doesn’t even have characters in their language that address this, the seed of democracy has been planted.

Chinese viewers also saw a world unsympathetic to the Chinese victims of Tibetan violence.

The power to edit video content, what a concept. The big break through – using the internet to “broadcast” the captured images. In a twist giving Police a major tool, is that not what it was intended for?

Pixel Solutions, was focused on consumers — taking class photos at schools, turning photos of chubby two-year-olds into fridge magnets and lampshades.

Here in the West we call it KODAK. Listen carefully the hallways are of full ideas toward a national ID card – remember the Health Care Plan (Hilary).

The main project of installing over 250,000 cameras is something the world needs to take note of. With government backing this county can create a needed new industry that can put people back to work. We did it with Aerospace why not duplicate the same concept. Villages and cities across this great nation are embracing surveillance and each are beginning the learning curve as to the responsibility they accept when deploying. True leadership will be demanded. I for one still have faith in the people too correctly administer this technology. That is the issue, the power of money does create greed an all the evils associated with it.

Video used right – Red Light Running Enforcement

22 02 2008

You want compelling video – watch this site.

RedSpeed Illinois is the only company that has merged advanced wireless computer technology with the security industry to deliver an ideal solution to improve your police and fire departments’ capacity to monitor your community and more quickly respond to emergency calls for assistance. An communities have responded.

My interest IP Surveillance. Many organization(s) need to address their current system. Cable? Tape? Not live or internet accessible.

We must come to grips with one fact of life. Unemployment means crime. An the safety of others should lead any discussion. We must look beyond the traditional “goofing off” of employees.

If your facility is atleast 75,000 sq/ft you have a minimum (2) blind spots. If the value of your company is based on inventory,{cooper turns a buck}capital assets must be secured. Multipule locations {factory,engineers}
can now have a central “mobile” location and enhance your Safety Awarness Program. And who better than police, fire an emergency people, directly connected with. Business nows has the perfect vehicle to participate with the community in building safer working envirnoments. Does not that qualify for an Insurance Discount?

Trust me watch the video, I’ll never approach a intersection the same again.
You people are nuts out-there….
