Am I paranoid (conspiracy)
« on: 2013-Sep-10 »
Hi,

today I remembered the old book 1984 from Orwell. So I did a google with my iPhone, and found a free, legal mp3 version of it (archive.org or so..). I started listening and after about 5 minutes, my iPhone was giving me an error "the profile could not be installed (unknown error)".

As far as I know, they use profiles to jailbreak/hijack iPhones. I'm using a beta version of iOS, so it might not have worked and I got his error. Folks, if my notion is not misleading, this is something that gets me thinking.

Usually I wanted to write that I fell in love with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but not I consider getting a 5,- mobile phone instead... Or none at all... Am I paranoid?  :S

What better way to infiltrate than through copies of 1984.  =D

But hey, paranoia doesn't help anyone.

And don't forget the illuminati :D Btw this also reminds me of that joke:

"Hello! Welcome to the mental health hotline!"
"If you are obsessive-compulsive, press 1 repeatedly
"If you are co-dependant ask someone to press 2 for you"
"If you have muliple personalities press 3, 4, 5 and 6"
"If you are paranoid, don't worry; we know who you are and what you want, stay on the line so we can trace your call"
"If you are delusional, press 7 and your call will be transfered to the mothership"
"If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a small voice will tell you which number to press"
"If you are manic-depressive, it doesn't matter which number you press since no one will answer"
"Thank you for calling the mental health hotline!"
 :D

Seriously though, sound like just a coincidence but a pretty cool one..

I became paranoid one day when my old router home page changed with the logo of my ISP (Intenet service provider) and I don't knew why. Later I learn that there is a hidden protocol TR-069 in all new routers wich allows to manage, configure and recollect data about your internet connection. The protocol calls home (your ISP) with a predefined time interval.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TR-069

My ISP upgraded two times my router without my notice and eliminated some options like firmware downgrade, or configure WAN parameters for prevent you use with other providers. Now I have other router and other internet provider.

About the iPhone, recently someone discovered a way to hack it with a special charger.

I always choose to be Paradroid, rather than Paranoid.
