If you use Skype interested this news, it was recently found an exploit which can be used by other Skype users to discover its remote and local IP addresses in. A note posted on the blog skype-open-source has revealed the details of this exploit.
Unfortunately the process for using this exploit is quite simple. First, a person can download a hacked version of SkypeKit and then change some registry keys. Then all that that person has to do is try to add a new contact in the program Skype. Recipient data is revealed when you click on the information card Skype. It is 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, along which ISP has that user. It could also be used by hackers to go after a particular team. However, it seems that only works if a Skype user is online at the time the request 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 email Mountain Lion , which highlights the fact that the application removed its support for RSS (he calls it an "interesting failure", the It is right and that was done discreetly).

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 free software could pose a mathematical formulation would be as follows:
S oftware Free = (Freedom + Sovereignty + Ethics) ^ Consciousness
But in terms of media power is concerned, we can not deny that houses global proprietary software handle them well [they have the 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 big headache for digital jailers and their hegemonic pretensions. It is no coincidence that large corporations such as Google, IBM and Sun have migrated much of its technology platform to 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 Microsoft monopolistic practices can watch called Halloween Documents to get an idea.
When I analyze the business strategies of proprietary software, I begin to realize a constant: the progressive elimination of user rights, and therefore their digital imprisonment, so let's put, when we buy or we give away a pair of shoes, we can use at will, after long use, we can send them to change the sole or dye them, maybe you give away a brother or acquaintance who need them, to the final 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 let alone copy it, so I really do not buy only what you ask on loan to the software company [a loan which is very expensive by the way], to the end when you go to a store and buy a proprietary software, really what you're buying is the case and its unique and thoughtful designs they call the attention of users., for anything you are buying the software because the end you can not do anything with it, anything that you do with something that really was yours.
To take an obvious example for all, now there have been efforts to promote open formats and interfaces to improve interoperability between systems from different manufacturers. In contrast to this Office draws its latest version in the format (.docx, .pptx, .etcx) which not only restricts interoperability with other office suites such as OpenOffice if it determines that additional support from the same office suite previous versions [+ $$$] leaving organizations vulnerable and tied to a technology that expires very quickly just because more money. Not to mention the restrictive and exclusionary Apple technologies with audio and video devices that force you to use only 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 like ours to use proprietary software. I go with another example imagine that we have all the digitized data of the birth of a country under the Office format, [it is safe and = S] while we're on good terms with Microsoft and paying the licenses we can make use of our information, but imagine the disaster would happen if this information quedase kidnapped and therefore unaffordable for such 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 other very interesting and innovative ways to explain the concepts of free software and copyleft, such as project OpenCola
