Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, this clearly needs to get its own item. Yesterday we linked to a story about how Samsung is supposedly installing keyloggers onto its laptops to track user behaviour. Samsung immediately launched an investigation into the matter, and has come to a rather humbling conclusion: the guy coming up with the story is incompetent, and Samsung has the evidence to prove it.

So, it turns out that the supervisor from Samsung's support seems to be incompetent, because he is the one that is confirming that (sort of, probably not knowing what this is). I wouldn't install any anti-virus, too, such software is written by the same people that write viruses ;) Thom, the blue eyes saying seems to be known all around the world, but for sure it works in Bulgaria. Made me laugh.

The correct phrase in English would be, "we have to take Samsung at their word," or, "we have to take Samsung's word for it." http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/take+someone+at+his+or+her+w...

And in Norwegian the phrase would be to believe something on someone's "ærlige ansikt" which translates to "honest face".

No not that all around the world as you might think. It didn't work on me. It probably would not work on Asians at least. (I am not a racist. I myself am originated from Asia ;)
