From the this-doesn’t-seem-quite-right-to-me dept.:
Defendant’s telling someone in a recorded jail call that he knew was being recorded his Facebook ID and password so it could be changed. That was a waiver of his reasonable expectation of privacy in the information on his Facebook account that AFOSI could access. Defendant was awaiting court martial in a county jail. United States v. Langhorne, 2017 CCA LEXIS 746 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. Dec. 5, 2017):
Doesn’t the defendant’s action in trying to change his password for FB show that he was concerned about protecting his privacy? If they had said to the defendant, “You realize you’re waiving any expectation of privacy because this call is being recorded, right?” what would the defendant have said? And more importantly, perhaps, what would he have then done? Would he have proceeded or shut up?

Interesting application and (in my wife’s hands) extremely expensive. Not to mention the Privacy implications of giving away a 3D rendering of my home.
3D interior design company Modsy raises $23 million
Modsy, a company that allows people to create 3D renderings of their home in order to visualize what it would look like with various kinds of furniture, has raised $23 million in a series B round of funding from Advance Venture Partners (AVP), Comcast Ventures, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and Norwest Venture Partners.
Founded out of San Francisco in 2015, Modsy asks you to take several photos of the specific space you are looking to renovate. Upload these photos, answer a few style-focused questions, and Modsy does the rest. You’ll be presented with 360-degree room renderings featuring furniture from more than 100 retailers — and you can buy products directly through these designs.
… Modsy offers two core pricing tiers. The basic Modsy package costs $69 and features all of the above, including two custom designs. Modsy & Style Advisor offers a few extra perks, including one-on-one access to a human style adviser over video chat or telephone.

A simple question: Has Wally learned this from Donald Trump?
