Vince Vaughn and Co. Create Stock Photos To Promote ‘Unfinished Business’

I’ve gotta admit, I have some stock in this game. Unfinished Business, which comes out this Friday, March 6th, is a film I worked on back in 2013 while I was an intern at Escape Artists. But that doesn’t make this newest promotional effort any less AWESOME. Unfinished Business sees Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, and Tom Wilkinson take their small business to Europe to compete against a giant company for a contract. The giant company is Vaughn’s former employer, hence the title of the film. To promote the film, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with iStock by Getty Images to

Comic Book Heroes Mixed with Mythology!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first complete edition of The Drawing Board here on the SourceFed website. Like we said last week, we’re really excited about this format and we hope you are too. This week’s theme was Comic Book Heroes Mixed with Mythology. We had some pretty kick ass designs for this so without further ado, LET’S TAKE A LOOK! These first three all come from Ioannis Hadjikyriakou. The Speedy Messenger Well done. The Flash here is running through Centropolis, which, along with the S.T.A.R. temple, are a great couple of nods toward The Flash’s mythology. The circular stitching

Cops Want Logs Of Your Text Messages

Law enforcement groups want wireless providers to store information about your text messages for at least two years. Y’know, just in case you might do something later.

As Congress considers updating the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act, which was written when I was little more than a mass of unbridled need, the Major Cities Chiefs Police Association has suggested to the US Senate that all records of text messaging be retained for two years. 

For its part, the Senate Judiciary Committee just approved a number of amendments to the ECPA, most notably the requirement that law enforcement personnel will have to obtain a search warrant in order to access a suspect’s e-mails. State and federal law enforcement groups appear ready to have a fight over text messages.

In case you’re wondering — yeah, CNET’s been all over this thing.

As of 2010, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile did not store the contents of your text messages. Verizon did for up to five days. Carriers would vary as far as the “metadata,” or in layman’s terms, essentially the logs of text messages and numbers attached to them. So back then, they may know that you texted your ex-girlfriend, but for the most part, they wouldn’t know what that text said.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation makes their stance pretty clear:

These data retention policies serve one purpose: to require companies to keep databases on their customers so law enforcement can fish for evidence. And this would seem to be done against the wishes of the providers, presumably, since…some of the providers don’t keep SMS messages at all.

The privacy battle has been ongoing and continues to heat up. Some lawmakers are pushing ISPs to record your Internet traffic. Google and Facebook threw a party to recruit legislators to update the ECPA and also simplify its infamously impenetrable wording.

Question: Do you think it’s reasonable for wireless carriers to hold text message info for a certain period of time?
