After his smartphone was stolen, a film student allowed his smartphone to get stolen again. This time it was filled with spyware to keep tabs on the thief.
An iPhone was not used to lure the thief. You can’t run spyware apps on the iPhone, and you don’t have the same level of control you do with Android.
The filmmaker used an HTC One preloaded with a special type of app that would give him total remote control of the phone. He could also use it to spy on everything the thief did, provided there was an active internet connection at the time. He could take photos and record videos, enable the microphone of the device to snoop in on conversations, collect all location data, read all the text messages, access call history, check contacts, and see all the contents of the phone.
It all happened thanks to a spyware app installed on the device that the thief didn’t even know was there. van der Meer also blocked the phone’s ability to receive Android updates in order to make sure his malware app wasn’t wiped out by a knowledgeable thief.
The PG movie will begin production in the spring for a global summer 2018.
Schumer will play a character who lives in Barbie land where Schumer’s Barbie gets kicked out, basically because she’s not perfect enough, a bit eccentric and doesn’t quite fit the mold. She then journeys on an adventure in the real world and by the time she returns to Barbie land to save it, she has gained the realization that perfection comes on the inside, not the outside, and that the key to happiness is belief in oneself, free of the obligation to adhere to some unattainable standard of perfection. Mattel, with a lot at stake since the toyline has generated $3 billion in sales, signed off on the take.
The actress claims her mom was arrested for a $10 library balance.
Actress Tika Sumpter says her mother was arrested Monday because of a $10 late fee at her local library in North Carolina. The arrest took place in Johnston County, N.C., where the Public Library of Johnston County & Smithfield calls home. According to the library’s website, overdue books elicit a 25-cent fine per day, while audio books, movies and CDs run an offender 50 cents every 24 hours. Sumpter’s mother is also a retired corrections officer named Janice Acquista who Sumpter said had no previous rap sheet — actually returned the book that prompted the fine a long time ago.
OK, calling Natalie Dormer’s horror flick a “true story” is a bit of a stretch, but it is set in a very real, very spooky setting: the Aokigahara forest. It’s a forest in Japan that is notorious for the numerous suicides that have been committed there. Because of the vast amount of deaths that occur there, police have mounted signs on trees that say things like: “Your life is a precious gift from your parents,” and “Please consult the police before you decide to die!” It’s no wonder The Forest made our list of 2016’s must-see horror movies!
