Remember the Incredible, amazing, easy! video I posted.
They made a Microsoft version as well – this time from Microsoft COO Kevin Turner’s July presentation to analysts. Here it is, but first, the Apple video again:
A Wyoming bank sent an e-mail containing sensitive customer data to the wrong Gmail account, and now wants Google to reveal the identity of the account holder who received the data.
According to a court document in the case, in August a customer of the Rocky Mountain Bank asked a bank employee to send certain loan statements to a representative of the customer. The employee, however, inadvertently sent the e-mail to the wrong Gmail address. Additionally, the employee had attached a sensitive file to the e-mail that should not have been sent at all.
In the meantime, Rocky Mountain Bank filed a motion last week to seal the entire case until the court decides whether to force Google to reveal the recipient’s name, saying it didn’t want its customers to learn about the breach, because it would create panic and result in a surge of inquiries from customers.
It wants the information under seal until it can determine from Google whether the Gmail account in question is an active or dormant, and whether the sensitive customer information is actually at risk of being abused.
A federal judge in San Jose, California denied the bank’s request to seal on Friday.
If I were a customer of this bank, I’d move whether my name was on the list or not…
A federal grand jury charged Hassan Nemazee, a New York businessman who has ties to prominent politicians, with defrauding banks of $292 million in part to benefit the Democratic Party.
Mr. Nemazee, 59 years old, used the proceeds of his scheme to donate to campaigns and political-action committees, according to an indictment made public Monday, though the amount allegedly spent on these efforts wasn’t specified. The donations helped him rise to become finance chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, among other major roles.
Mr. Nemazee allegedly used fake documents showing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of collateral to defraud three major banks since 1998, the indictment states. In August he owed $142 million to Bank of America and about $75 million to Citibank. After federal authorities confronted him about the alleged Citibank fraud before his arrest last month, he repaid the Citibank loan using loans from HSBC Bank, which he also obtained by lying about his finances, the indictment states.
Mr. Nemzaee, who has long ties to former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as other party leaders, also allegedly used illegally obtained money to donate to charities and buy a yacht and property in Italy, according to the indictment.
In an infamous moment at the Values Voter Summit over the weekend, captured on video by Dave Weigel, Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) chief of staff Michael Schwartz made the case against pornography. “All pornography is homosexual pornography,” said Schwartz, quoting an ex-gay friend of his, “because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards.”
Schwartz then explained the side benefit of this finding — that if boys know pornography will make them gay, they’ll never touch it, taking advantage of what Schwartz sees as a natural homophobia. “And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to get a copy of Playboy?” he said. “I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants!”

The Federal Government yesterday asked the Sony Corporation to withdraw with immediate effect and tender an unreserved apology for posting an advertisement on the internet portraying Nigeria as a home of fraud where its citizens hardly do genuine business.
The Minister of Information and Communication, Prof Dora Akunyili said contrary to the insinuations being made, “Nigeria remains a major investment destination and a country where most businesses thrive in trust, good faith, competence and integrity.
According to the statement, “Nigeria also demands an unconditional apology from Sony Corporation for this deliberate negative campaign against the country’s image and reputation.
Dear Government of Nigeria,
We at Sony apologize for our insensitive portrayal of your country as a hive of scam artists. We have the utmost respect for the great country of Nigeria and its people. In recompense, we would like to give you $1,000,000 as our way of saying sorry. All we will need from you is a number for a checking account in which to deposit the funds and a processing fee of $5000 (this will be added to the deposit of $1,000,000 to reimburse you.) Once again, we humbly apologize.
President of Sony
