El nuevo IOS11 de Apple


Después del lanzamiento de la versión en pruebas el pasado mes de julio, la versión definitiva de iOS 11 estará disponible a partir de hoy mismo. Apple no acostumbra a fijar una hora exacta, pero si sigue el patrón habitual aparecerá una notificación en los dispositivos de los usuarios a partir de las 10 de la mañana en Cupertino y sobre las 19 horas en España.

¿Qué novedades presenta iOS 11?

Son numerosas y diversas, algunas exclusivas para el iPhone X y otras disponibles también para el resto de dispositivos. De algunas ya pudimos ver una pequeña muestra la semana pasada en la presentación de los nuevos terminales, como el Face ID, los animojis o la realidad aumentada en el modelo más caro. Otras, en cambio, deberemos esperarnos hasta tener el nuevo software para disfrutar de ellas.
Más allá de los emoticonos animados y de la posibilidad de desbloquear el teléfono con el rostro, con iOS 11 también dispondremos de un nuevo centro de control más personalizado y completo, podremos grabar lo que ocurre en nuestra pantalla y editar las imágenes y los vídeos obtenidos y gestionar nuestro contenido con la aplicación Archivos.

download

Sunday’s regional and local elections in Spain where more than 36 million citizens are called to vote is held. The vote takes place in a context of consecutive protests against economic and cuts the deteriorations in the quality of life that have resulted from government decisions Mariano Rajoy.

 These are the 10 keys of this electoral process:
1. These elections are considered historic because the expected results may end the hegemony of bipartisanship with the entry of new parties in the front ranks of municipalities and autonomous regions.

2. More than 36 million voters are called to elect 67 000 640 802 regional councilors and deputies. The Basque Country, Catalonia, Galicia and Andalusia not participate in these elections to have their own elections.3. A total of 13 regions will renew their regional parliaments: Aragon, Asturias, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castile and Leon, Castile-La Mancha, Valencia, Extremadura, Madrid, Murcia, Navarra and La Rioja.

iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Expectations

20140504-113708.jpg

If there’s one thing that we have learned over the last few years, it’s that, rightly or wrongly, the jailbreak community expects a lot. The majority of the complexities involved in researching vulnerabilities, exploiting those bugs and then tying it all nicely together into a jailbreak package capable of mass distribution are abstracted away from the end-user. This is undoubtedly how it should be, but the trade-off is that users become impatient and irritable due to a lack of understanding of the process and how much work is actually involved in effectively producing a jailbreak from scratch once Apple have slammed the security door in our faces.

First and foremost we expect to see a first glimpse of iOS 8 at this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in June. We also expect to see a first developer seed going live to registered developers during the course of WWDC week. A public version of iOS 8 will likely ship with the iPhone 6 sometime in September or October. That’s approximately six or seven months in the future, so we of course expect to see an untethered 7.1 solution made available before then – all going well. However, if the first seed of iOS 8 is found to have exploitable vulnerabilities in then the Evad3rs could potentially make the call to hold off on iOS 7 and focus attention on liberating iOS 8 with the hope that any vulnerabilities are not patched as part of the process of going from beta to public.

iOS 7.1 Jailbreak with Evasi0n?

If the Evad3rs team are involved in the research or production of an iOS 7.1 untether, which we expect them to be, then it’s highly likely that we will see an updated version of Evasi0n7 shipping. The distributed tools and software that makes jailbreaking possible on a mass scale has improved exponentially over the years. What used to be a laborious and overly technical process has now been condensed into a single one click solution (where possible).

Venezuelan chronicles: a struggling country

20140328-121720.jpg

In the early-morning hours of Saturday, March 9, three days before I received the extortion call, two friends — a British man and a Venezuelan woman — were attacked in the street close to my building by a group of six young thugs. The man was able to fend off three of them, but they got away with the woman’s wallet and smartphone, reducing her to tears. Sadly, this has become an all-too-common occurrence in the city.

For now, I have decided that I can no longer live in Venezuela, one of the world’s most dangerous countries. According to the Venezuelan Violence Observatory, a nongovernmental organization, there were 24,763 murders last year, or 79 for every 100,000 inhabitants. The situation has deteriorated so much that the government stopped publishing official figures a couple of years ago.

The government has run the economy into the ground despite the fact that the nation sits atop the planet’s largest oil reserves. Inflation is running at 56 percent. The government budget deficit is more than 10 percent of gross domestic product.

Shortages of basic products such as toilet paper, infant formula, diapers and hand soap are rife. People use napkins instead of toilet paper, even though that is prohibitively expensive for most Venezuelans. Otherwise, they go without, and shower regularly.

Last week I spent a morning going to seven stores just to find shampoo. People line up for two or three blocks just to obtain the ingredients to make their beloved arepa, a flatbread made of ground maize dough or cooked flour. In Mercals, communal grocery stores subsidized by the government, food prices are extremely cheap but the lines are such that people have to spend a whole morning queuing to get the produce.

20140326-120050.jpg

So, now you can install/ get TOR on your idevice. but first the question that arise is: why should I do this? well here is why.

Tor’s mission is provide you with anonymity while browsing online. This is useful if you do not want people locating you and especially if you are dealing with confidential information. Tor is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. It is also available in a mobile version for Androids and iPhones. In order to install it on your iPhone it needs to already be jailbroken

Jailbreak your iPhone. Check the Resources section for a wizard to guide you through that process.

Create the folder “/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall” on your device. You will have to use iPhoneBrowser to create the folder on your iPhone (see Resources).

3
Download and place the slackware .deb file into the folder you created (see Resources).

4
Restart your device and open Cydia. Refresh your sources and perform an upgrade within Cydia to make sure everything is up to date.

5
Install “Tor Toggle” from within Cydia and then add it to the “SBSettings” menu.

6
Navigate to your “HTTP Proxy” settings. This is done by going back to main menu and pressing “Settings,” “WiFi,” “Your Wireless Network ESSID” and, finally, “HTTP Proxy Manual.” Set the server to “127.0.0.1”, the port to “8118” and make sure authentication is off. All your phone’s traffic will now be proxied through Tor’s network.


About political situation in Venezuela today

20140319-125909.jpg

A lot of people argue that these protests are too early. That the barrios are not participating. That the people still support the Government widely and many other such arguments. While there is evidence to counteract each of these claims, I think they try to oversimplify the problem. In the end, the “barrios” are not where the opposition is weak, it is in the very rural states, where the people have a very high dependence on the Government. These are the true Chavista strongholds, where the media is fully dominated by the Government and the opposition gets less than 40% of the vote in any given election. In the barrios of the big cities, the 2013 Presidential elections tended to be closer, with the opposition scoring wins in many.

Democracy assistance has little chance of being effective without the carrot and stick of conditionality?

 

Definition carrot and stick: Strategy often used in negotiations where one side offers the other something it wants while threatening negative sanctions if the other side does not comply with its requests.

Ever since the fall of the Berlin Wall, there has been confusion for disagreement over the primary purpose(s) of political strategies of external support for democratization and their theoretical justification. Carothers’ idea of a ‘‘democracy template’’ (1999:88) comprising electoral process, state institutions, and civil society, reflecting an idealized view of U.S. liberal democracy arranges the typical components of conventional democracy support. First, there are goals for each of these three ‘‘sectors,’’ such as free and fair elections, and then individual forms of assistance, for example; international election observation. The simplest strategy for support refers to choices among these three sectors and their components.[1]

Democratization assistance is an established and growing industry. Yet, in a survey of 40 democracies; efforts to protect and promote democracy abroad, only three countries (Canada, the Netherlands, and Sweden) were rated ‘‘very good’’[2]. Thus, it seems there is scope to do better. In contrast, two problematic aspects of democratization after intervention are the regional environment of the new democracies and the economic structure of the country. Several empirical studies indicate that the prospects for democracy are worse for countries that are located in non-democratic neighbourhoods [3] and that stable democracy is less likely in poor or oil-dependent countries.[4]

Conditionality can be defined as an agreement between two actors, in which actor 1 offers a reward to actor 2. This reward is granted if actor 2 fulfils certain conditions. In case the conditions are not met by actor 2 the reward is simply withheld (positive conditionality) or punishment follows (negative conditionality). To exert conditionality as a reward-based policy between two actors, asymmetric negotiation power has to be in place. This means that actor 1 has to be able to offer attractive incentives which actor 2 wants to have and cannot achieve easily. When analyzing social interaction from an incentives- and interest-based position, conditionality is first of all understood as a mode of action. Additionally, it can be used purposely as a political strategy to apply a reward-based policy between two political actors and to institutionalize asymmetric interaction. In this case, conditionality can be used to promote democracy by combining attractive rewards with certain conditions of democratic development.
