From WikiLeaks: Did you know that NSA is Planning to Hack Smartphones?

SmartphonesThis latest WikiLeaks report might shock you, but seems like the National Security Agency (NSA) of America had been planning to hack Smartphone’s by using loopholes in data connections through Google Apps, so that it can implant spyware that would give them access to the phone’s data as well as communication patterns. Seems that this had been planned to give them an edge over mass movements such as the Arab Spring in the Middle East, where Smartphones and social media played a key role.

The hack is reported to be directed towards Android and Samsung phone in particular, and coming from NSA, which is reported to have a strong grip on all communications across USA, this report has been driving such panic amongst users. The project names as Irritant Horn was initiated by US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand and Australia, and implants a spyware called XKEYSCORE into every App listed on Google and Samsung marketplace and also plans to use it for pushing selecting propaganda when needed, so that terrorism can be effectively combated.

Khloe Kardashian on Cover Page of Cosmopolitan UK February 2015 Issue

Khloe-KardashianKhloe Kardashian looked super-hot as she is featured on the cover page of the February 2015 issue of Cosmopolitan UK. She talked about how difficult it is to be in relationship and now she is happy single again.

In her words, “By the time I hit that age I thought I would have kids and still be married. But because that’s not the way it went, you can’t sit in a ball and cry. I had a husband, so I think there’s an adjustment period, which I don’t want to rush. Dating is so weird.”
It appears that the media presents a different image of Khloe and she is something different. She says, “I don’t crave sex. I talked about it more openly when I was married because it’s more comfortable. I crave companionship — I just want to cuddle. I got married at 25 — I was young, but I loved it. I do like it when you save certain things for your marriage. I don’t think you should treat every guy you’re dating like your husband. It doesn’t make it special.”
The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ starlet thinks herself as self-sufficient. She adds, “When I first got married some of my girlfriends said, ‘You never have to work now — you married a basketball player.’ But I don’t care if you marry someone who works at the grocery store or someone who is a director of a company, everyone should have their own identity. It’s not about numbers.”
And finally Khloe says that at the end of the year she is happy. In her words, “I’m happy. I moved into my new house, which is the first time I’ve owned a home on my own. It’s a big step and my brother lives with me — I’m so happy about that.”
