I find this very interesting. As someone that rides a motorcycle, it’s important to have your contact information handy. Contact and medical info just in case.
Keep You Safe offers a distributed and encrypted method of stashing your important and critical information online. Should you lose your wallet and account information and/or should something happen to you find an internet cafe and viola, you can start rebuilding.
Who hasn’t lost their wallet? After doing a little digging I’m not 100% sure about KeepYouSafe as an organization just yet. There is no company information on the website and no contact information other than email. When things get really tough, you need someone to call.
While having a distributed online, encrypted place to store this information is a great idea. The site looks good, but…
Check the who is information for the domain… It’s all masked and held private. That’s not a good thing. At this stage of the game I’d like to see something that gives me more confidence in KeepYouSafe than just the little ‘hacker safe’ badge.
But I have no doubt this will be a success with a number of folks out there.

Lego my hard drive.
Fresh out of the: “This is just too stupid for words department”.
USB 2.0 hard drives shaped like Lego bricks.
What marketing genius decided that we needed “Professional storage that was now easy and fun”, or that we needed to “Add colors to our computing life?” Especially primary colors? (White is not a color by the way).
I did not make this up. See for yourself here.
Apple ships iPods with Windows Virus, (Link) and then blames Microsoft (Link).
While they do admit that the majority of their iPod sales are to Windows users (thusly forcing them to use Windows based machines in the production facility), I fail to see how that is Microsofts fault for Apple (or the manufacturer) to keep a clean environment.
Sheesh. What nimwitts.
But as we all know, any press is good press.
For a great example of how a company should have handled it, rather than playing the blame game, see Apple compared to McDonalds in the link to the PC World Article.
C’mon Steve, get with it, we love you, and Apple, but please, let’s not pretend your crap doesn’t stink from time to time.
It’s clearly OK to own up to the eggs that Apple lays now and then.
I love it, especially the installation part:
Now, since I’ve closed all applications I could possibly close, including all task tray related items, just what do you think they could possibly need access to that they can’t get?
Ignore didn’t work so well, that’s why I’m back here again and taking a screen shot.

So after I requested that the stop probing me. I got this response:
These probes are part of an ongoing project which discovers and monitors Internet topology risks outside firewalls in cooperation with the anti-phishing and Internet stability monitoring efforts of several U.S. government law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
The server you mention, www.apopka.net with address 188.8.131.52, is a part of the government agency list that we created at the request of the FCC before Hurricane Rita. InternetPerils data collection is light weight and unintrusive.
Most people are happy to be included in this Internet wide project once they learn about InternetPerils monitoring projects. However, we do have a policy of excluding destinations and netblocks and I have removed your host from the government set.
Well, excuse me, but if you want to ping me once to discover that I’m here and a dead end to map out the internet for your government project that’s one thing. To hit me every now and then to see if I’m still here is another. But to ding me often enough that my IDS system says your a potential threat is something entirely different.
No, you need to ask us before you do that. From the looks of the website and the communication, and the lovely webserver at www.apopka.net it’s clear to me that InternetPerils is just another organization dicking around with the internet and more than likely sucking money out of the government, and probably using up good grant money that could go for something better.
No, I’m not happy to be included in this. I have no interest in Hurricane Rita. Last time I was in Florida, there was still garbage on the streets from Rita. If you want to do something, go pick that up and leave my servers and network out of it. FEMA won’t touch the garbage because people have put their real garbage with the hurricane garbage so it was no longer hurricane only garbage, so it just sits there and rots. Excellent.
If you want people to buy what you’re selling fix your website so it looks more official, and your servers resolve to servers that aren’t city servers welcoming me to the foliage capitol of Florida.
