Wikileaks Pairs with Anonymous to Publish Intelligence Firm’s Dirty Laundry
In a recent story, wired.com has announced that Anonymous and Wikileaks will be working together to release 5 million e-mails that were retrieved from servers at Strafor, a private intelligence firm. Anonymous states that releasing this information on Wikileaks will allow for sifting through the mass of e-mails more efficiently. In a statement from Stratfor, they claim that the e-mails should not publicly embarrass the company.

FBI turns off 3,000 GPS trackers after Supreme Court ruling
Andrew Weissmann, the general counsel for the FBI, announced that they are switching off thousands of GPS devices that are used for surveillance after the recent Supreme Court decision this past month.

Plesk control panel bug left FTC sites (and thousands more) exposed to Anons
A very serious vulnerability has been found in versions of Parallels Plesk Control Panel software. This is very troubling due to the fact that this is one of the most popular control panel software programs currently available. The vulnerability allows a hacker to make significant changes to user accounts and files. This allows them to gain root access and install custom software. Anyone that uses Plesk and does not keep their control panel up to date on a regular basis is encouraged to upgrade to the most recent micro-patch of your available version.

Google sells off Clearwire stake for $47 million
Cnet.com reports that Google recently sold off their $47 million dollar stake in Clearwire. Google has not made a public statement on why they have decided to unload Clearwire, but, the huge losses Clearwire has been seeing in recent years might be an indicator. Clearwire is hoping that the 5,000 LTE sites it plans on having operational mid next year will change their current course.
Google Aims to Offer Kansas City TV
The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Google, Inc. has applied in the past week to provide video service to residents of Kansas City, Missouri. This sets the stage for Google offering a Cable-TV like service in addition to the high-speed internet service they plan on marketing later this year. This would place Google into competition with satellite and cable TV providers. They are looking to launch this TV service in the coming months.
Google, Apple sued over Street View Technology
According to CNET, a recent lawsuit has been filed against Google and Apple stating that they infringed on a patent filed in mid-2003. The patent covers an interactive system for displaying detailed view and direction in panoramic images. The law suit claims that Google’s street view product is in violation and that Google and Apple were both aware of this before releasing their Street View product. The company filing the suit is named PanoMap Technologies and they don’t even have a website.

Buckyball Solids Found In Space
Last year, scientists found gaseous clouds of buckyballs. Astronomers have now discovered these carbon balls in solid form about 6,500 light-years from earth. Buckyballs are microscopic spheres where 60 carbon atoms are arranged with alternating patterns of hexagons and pentagons in a football like pattern. This makes the structures incredibly strong and perfect for making superconducting materials, medicines, water purification systems, and armor. The particles they have discovered are miniscule and are much thinner than the width of a human hair.
Faster-Than-Light Neutrino Results May Be Due to Bad Cables
This one comes from wired.com. In past broadcasts, we discussed tests that claimed to have sent neutrinos faster than the speed of light. This, however, seems to not be due to a scientific breakthrough, but, due to bad cabling. The issue they detected was a faulty fiber optic connection that brought the GPS signal to the experiment’s master clock. This caused the GPS to provide the wrong timestamps during the synchronization between events. The OPERA collaboration is looking to perform new measurements of the neutrino velocity as soon as they continue operations in March.
Then, we played some music from Chris Ayer.

Welcome to this week’s LumpCast. Remember, you can always join Lumpy live for the stream of the show on Fridays at 10 PM to Midnight almost every Friday night. This week, we swapped scheduled times with Friday Night Freak n’ Geek and aired at 8 PM EST. Listen in as Lumpy spins mostly the blues.
The band is from Colorado Springs, Colorado
I came across this band over at Mevio’s Music Alley. I was in a hard rock mood and really enjoyed their tunes. I think you will too.
Genre: rock/hard rock/metal/punk rock/glam
The band is from Switzerland
Bio and info: Quoting the bands page at Mevio “Towards the end of 2006 Kid Crystal (Bitch Queens) and Hede (Zamarro) had the idea of pooling their strengths and go on a musical adventure together but without a bass, we all know, any journey’s only half as fun.”
