So all those purported official tweets from North Korea? Not real, apparently–they’re the work of “supporters” in China and Japan. Twitter, with its free-speaking, democratic tendencies, is still forbidden fruit inside the DPRK. “Such websites [as Twitter or Facebook] will never be run by our government directly,” said Alejandro Cao de Benos, special delegate for the Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries (a title that should now seemingly be edited to include the phrase “as long as you’re not talking about social networking”). The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is not using Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube in this sort of official capacity, is the take-away piece of news here. Instead de Benos suggested to Forbes that the pro-DPRK propaganda that’s been the cause of all sorts of excitement is coming from “government supporters” rather than officials, and these people may be living in … [Read more...] about North Korea: We Didn’t Tweet, It’s a Filthy Western Habit
In our culture, there’s this idea that enduring a tragedy can be good for your personal growth. You’ll have a newfound appreciation for life. You’ll be grateful for your friends and family. You’ll learn from the experience. You’ll become more resilient. advertisement advertisement This theme appears in media coverage, time and again, in the wake of natural disasters and terrorist attacks. But what does the science say?

The first iPhone worm is spreading around Australia, changing users’ wallpaper to a picture of ’80s pop star Rick Astley, the mobile version of getting Rickrolled. It’s mostly harmless, but is it a signal that virus makers will soon worm their way into your iPhone? Not if you play by Apple’s rules. The worm only affects jail-broken iPhones–those whose users have set their phones to run unauthorized software such as tethering programs or hacks that allow them to customize settings and download apps from third-party app stores such as Cydia or Rock Your Phone. The BBC reported Monday morning that the worm’s creator, 21-year-old Australian Ashley Towns made the bug to raise the issue of security. He’s clearly not a fan of jailbreaking, and in the source code, Towns wrote: “People are stupid and this is to prove it.” It’s estimated that no more than 10% of iPhones and iPod Touch are jail-broken in the U.S. and U.K., but the … [Read more...] about Is Mobile Rickrolling the First Step in an iPhone Virus Outbreak?
