If you are interested in using Skype this news, we recently found an exploit which can be used by other Skype users to find their remote and local IP to route. A note posted on the blog skype-open-source has revealed the details of this exploit.
Unfortunately the process to use this exploit is pretty simple. First, a person can download a hacked version of SkypeKit and then change some registry keys. Then all that person has to do is try to add a new contact in the Skype program. The data recipient is revealed when you click on the information card on Skype. Not even necessary to send a confirmation of contact for the user, which means that he or she will not be aware that they are watching their IP addresses.
This method could be used to determine country of origin of a Skype user and know the city, next to which ISP has that user. It could also be used by hackers to go after a particular computer. However, it seems that only works if a Skype user is online at the time the application is made. We have contacted Skype to give us information about this vulnerability and whether they have plans to fix it.
John Gruber had it right when he pointed to the review of Dan Frakes' application mailing Mountain Lion , which highlights the fact that the application removed its support for RSS (he calls it an "interesting failure" as is right and that was done discreetly). In fact, it is the most interesting aspect of the review, even though this information is buried at the bottom of this article, along with references indicating which support RSS also seems to have been removed from Safari.

As I always say, the use of free software is unethical if not a technical problem, here is the detail as would the famous Cantinflas. If you could bring free software into a mathematical formulation, would be as follows:
S oftware Free = (+ Sovereignty + Ethics Freedom) + Consciousness
But in terms of media power is concerned, we can not deny that houses world-proprietary software handle them very well [with resources], denigrating and underestimating the free software movement and sometimes terrorizing the population to prevent its use. With the development of free software better quality and more successful communication strategies, free software has become a major headache for digital jailers and hegemonic pretensions. It is no coincidence that large corporations like Google, IBM and Sun have migrated much of its technology platform free software [GNU / Linux, Python, Ruby, MySql], supporting or taking advantage of the movement of global free software to improve their business models . If you want to know the strategies and monopolistic practices Microsoft can look called Halloween Documents to get an idea.
When I analyze the business strategies of proprietary software, I start to realize one constant: the progressive elimination of the rights of the users, and therefore their digital prison, so let's put it, when we buy or give us a pair of shoes, we can use at will, after much use, we can send them to change the sole or dye them, maybe give them to a brother or acquaintance who need them, at the last pair of shoes is ours and we can do whatever we want with them. Is it the same with proprietary software ?, Because obviously not, first of all do not buy proprietary software because we can not give it away, or lend, or adapt, much less copy, so I really do not buy it just ask on loan to the business of software [a loan that is very expensive by the way], to the end when you go to a store and buy a proprietary software, really what you are buying is the box, with its beautiful and thoughtful designs that attract users attention., for anything you are buying software since the end you can not do anything with it, anything that you do with something that was yours truly.
To take an obvious example for all, now there have been efforts to promote open formats and interfaces that enhance interoperability between systems from different manufacturers. In contrast to this Office shows its latest format (.docx, .pptx, .etcx) which not only restricts the interoperability with other office suites like OpenOffice if it determines that additional support from the same Office package previous versions [+ $$$] leaving organizations vulnerable and tied to a technology that expires very quickly just for more money. Not to mention the restrictive and exclusionary Apple technologies with audio and video devices that force you to use just something that is well identified with the rotten apple [it's my way or the highway]
Choose examples to explain the disadvantages for a country such as ours use proprietary software. I go with another example imagine we have all the digitized data of the birth of a country under the Office format, [it is safe as well = S] while we're on good terms with Microsoft and paying the license we can make use of our information, but imagine disaster would happen if this information quedase kidnapped and thus unavailable for such a simple reason as we decided to change office solution [migration problems in sight] or simply are included in the blacklist of the axis of evil, as is well described in this article, ie free software is a matter of sovereignty and independence no cost. There are some very interesting and innovative ways to explain the concepts of free software and copyleft, such as project OpenCola
