Is the NSA Into Me? How to Seem More Interesting on Your Tapped Calls

Reductress - Women's News. Feminized.
So you’ve got your eyes on those hotties over at the NSA and you’re wondering how to get their attention? Here’s a list of sexy, suspicious buzzwords that you and your girlfriends can use in phone conversations that’ll be sure to get their attention. Before you know it, you’ll be “terrorizing” their thoughts day and night. 1. Terrorism This is pretty simple to incorporate to any discussion. “That manicurist was conducting terrorism on my nails today.” “I plan on a legitimate act of terror if Pinkberry is closed right now.” 2. Dirty bomb Use this whenever updating your friends on anything new in your life. “Have I got a dirty bomb to drop on you—I quit my job!” Or you can use this to describe trashy girls. “She was more than a hot mess. She was a dirty bomb!” Bonus points for including “schrapnel” wherever possible. 3. Attack Throw this one around as often as possible. “I really want to attack this smoothie right now.” “I’m feeling attacked by this NSA surveillance.” “I’m having a panic attack about these attacks we’re planning (on this Matthew McConaughey movie marathon!).” 4. Al Qaeda This one’s the hardest to incorporate into your regular speech. Try using it as a playful pun. “I feel like someone might be listening to us right now, but Al Qaeda don’t care.” 5. Mexico This one surprised us, but apparently it drives those NSA guys wild. Try phrases like “I think I might head down to Mexico. Why is it so hard to smuggle a good margarita around here? Human trafficking!”

When iPhones have remote kill switches will thefts lessen?

It probably depends on how easy it is to bypass the kill switch, right? 2.8 Million Reasons Why Smartphones Need To Come With Kill Switches – Consumerist
Earlier this week, Apple made a lot of customers happy when they announced that the next iteration of its iOS operating system for iPhones would integrate a so-called “kill swtich” technology that enables the owner to cripple the phone remotely when it’s lost or stolen. And that’s a good thing, because a lot of you are being careless with your wireless devices. According to the 2013 Consumer Reports State of the Net Survey, an estimated 2.8 million Americans permanently lost a smartphone or had it stolen in the last year. Nearly 60% (1.6 million) of these devices were stolen. The rest vanished into the ether, but victims of crime and of their own absentmindedness both reported that people tried to use their phones to make calls, or to access information like Facebook accounts and e-mail. “This finding shows that consumers who lose their smart phones need a reliable way to disable those phones just as much as victims of phone theft do,” said Jeff Fox, Technology Editor, Consumer Reports.
