iPhone case allows you to take photos with phone held horizontally

iPhone case allows you to take photos with phone held horizontally

The MirrorCase for the iPhone lets you take photos while holding the phone flat, like an old-times camera. It seems like a good way to shoot video of yourself, too - just set it on a table and do your thing. At $50, it's a bit pricey. I wonder if there's a D.I.Y. version? (I think this is the gizmo used to secretly tape Mitt Romney declaring that [...]

Galaxy S III full specs: 1.5GHz quad-core, 1080p display, ceramic case

We reported some exclusive details surrounding Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy S III smartphone this past weekend, and now we have received some more information that helps us paint a more complete picture. And as that picture becomes more clear, this sure looks like the baddest Android smartphone the world hasn’t yet seen. We reported that [...]

You have 30 days to pay me $5,000,000

Cliff Notes: Guy drives an rc car with a camera into one of the great pyramids, wants $5,000,000 to keep a lid on what he found

Most common iPhone unlock codes

Most common iPhone unlock codes

This chart shows the 10 most common iPhone numeric lock-codes, as anonymously gathered by the Big Brother Security Camera app (now removed from the App Store). They represent 15% of all 204,508 passcodes sampled. I wonder how strongly they correlate with other numeric PINs, such as ATM/Chip-and-PIN codes. Interestingly, 1990-2000 are all in [...]

ATM skimmer that doesn’t require any modifications to the ATM

ATM skimmer that doesn’t require any modifications to the ATM

Brian Krebs reports on a new wrinkle in ATM skimmer design: if the ATM is in its own lobby, crooks can steal your card number and PIN without ever touching the ATM. Instead, they attach the skimmer to the door-lock (you know those doors that only open if you swipe your card?) and then use a hidden camera to record you keying in your PIN. [...]

World’s greatest photographer’s “bust-card”

World’s greatest photographer’s “bust-card”

Hey photographers, have I got a bust card for you! The next time you're stopped by an authority figure for photographing a federally owned or federally leased building, just hand the law's agent this declassified 2010 DHS directive that unambiguously states that photographing public buildings from a public place is legal, and that harassing [...]

Cleverly designed camera bag keeps you stealthish

Cleverly designed camera bag keeps you stealthish

This is such a great idea I can't believe the design isn't more common! Over at Cloakbags, someone was really thinking and designed a camera bag that conceals the fact you even have a camera. First of all, by not looking like the usual flag announcing to the world around you that you have valuable gear in tow, it keeps you a little more low-key [...]

Wiretap charges dropped against motorcyclist who videotaped cop

Wiretap charges dropped against motorcyclist who videotaped cop

An update on a story blogged earlier on Freeish: A judge in Harford County, MD, threw out felony charges against motorcyclist Anthony Graber for taping a policeman who stopped him using a helmet-mounted camera. Graber admits he was speeding and may have been riding recklessly when an officer in plain clothes and an unmarked car pulled in [...]

Fake DHS “photography license” for fake no-photos laws

Fake DHS “photography license” for fake no-photos laws

All around the world, cops and rent-a-cops are vigorously enforcing nonexistent anti-terrorist bans on photography in public places. If you're worried about being busted under an imaginary law, why not download these templates and print yourself an imaginary "Photography license" from the DHS? Who knows if it's legal to carry one of these... [...]

Watching is a crime?

Watching is a crime?

The resisting-arrest conviction last week of Felicia Gibson has left a lot of people wondering. Can a person be charged with resisting arrest while observing a traffic stop from his or her own front porch? Salisbury Police Officer Mark Hunter thought so, and last week District Court Judge Beth Dixon agreed. Because Gibson did not at first [...]
