The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

NSA able to tap iPhone mic even when switched off: Snowden

The American fugitive whistleblower Edward Snowden has claimed that the US National Security Agency (NSA), which works with the UK's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), can eavesdrop through the mic inside an iPhone even when the device is switched off. The claim has been confirmed by several experts, reports Sina's tech news web portal.

Snowden said the NSA and GCDQ have worked together on the technique enabling their agents to secretly eavesdrop on iPhone users. "They can absolutely turn them on with the power turned off to the device," Snowden said.

Eric McDonald, a hardware engineer in Los Angeles, backed up Snowden's claim, saying that when the mobile phone is switched off it actually enters a low-power mode that leaves key communication chips active, including the option of remotely activating the mic. The phone is not off; it is "playing dead."

"The screen would look black and nothing would happen if you pressed buttons but it's conceivable that the baseband (the cellular function) is still on, or turns on periodically," he said. It would be very difficult to discover if one's mobile phone had been tapped.

Security consultant Robert David Graham said the technique Snowden referred to is probably an implant. An implant means that the NSA listens to one's mobile phone and installs hardware or software on it. "Yes, an implant gives the NSA full control over your phone but it's difficult getting the implant on your phone in the first place," he said.

Once NSA installs an implant in the mobile phone, they can activate it remotely. It is because the mobile phone is not actually switched off when it appears to be. Graham said that the technique can be used through the internet or the phone's cellular functions. It can also be installed if someone has access to the user's mobile phone.

To ensure that your mobile phone is not being tapped, you must make it enter the so-called device firmware update mode (DFU mode). First plug the iPhone into any power outlet or USB port. Press the on/off button, and after three seconds press the home button. Keep both buttons pressed for ten seconds. Release the power button but continue pressing the home button for another ten to fifteen seconds. The mobile phone will then enter DFU mode.
