The Chronicles© - No Equal Since 2008 | www.stickydiljoe.com

I feel this giant weight lifted off my shoulders now that I am finally getting the bulk of the coverage from the last few weeks up on the site. Haha, I was beginning to get slightly stressed-out about when to schedule all these updates to go up because there is still so much going on this summer. I have to head to Seattle this weekend for work and the following weekend I fly to Chicago to attend a Gridlife/Fatlace event. I’ve never been out there for anything automotive-related before so it should be interesting. After I get back from Chicago, I think I may have a free week until my buddy Yasu from Japan comes into town. He’s in need of some rest and relaxation so I told him to fly over to the U.S. so he could check out the Norcal Wekfest event. He’s never been to Northern California…

Google files free speech challenge to FISA gag orders, renews criticism of Guardian

Gigaom

Google(s goog) has asked a secret Washington court to declare that it has a right under the First Amendment to disclose the number of security letters it receives under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Such letters, which the government uses to obtain phone and internet data about foreign nationals, are currently subject to an automatic gag order that forbids companies from disclosing their very existence.

On Tuesday, Google said it is filing a petition to the secret court, known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The petition, embedded below, notes that the search giant has already received information from the FBI to publish the number of so-called National Security Letters it receives — these are similar to FISA letters but cover US citizens.

The Google petition comes as a brouhaha continues to rage over the revelation of secret government programs, such as PRISM, that collect meta-data on phone and internet users.

Why Opera’s lightweight Mini browser is more popular than ever

Gigaom

Back in the early days of the internet-capable mobile phone – and by this I mean 2006, the pre-iPhone(s aapl) era – Opera Mini came out, and it was the best way to surf the web from such a device. The browser uses server-side compression to squeeze data by up to 90 percent, so it meant faster page loads and less data usage.

That was then, this is now. But it turns out the popularity of Opera Mini is still growing like mad – in fact, last December saw the biggest month-on-month growth for the tiny browser in its history, up 6.3 percent from 195.5 million to 207.8 million users. The Mini servers handled more than 143 billion pages and compressed more than 12 petabytes of data during the month. What gives?

The answer is a bit of a mixed bag. Firstly, the big growth in mobile internet usage these…

SEMA 2012 Coverage

SEMA 2012 Coverage

The Chronicles© - No Equal Since 2008 | www.stickydiljoe.com

Though we are already heading into Part 3 of the SEMA 2012 coverage, the photos you’ve been seeing the last two days have mostly been from my first day at the SEMA show. For this third installment, we’ll be taking a look at some cars from the SEMA show that I first saw upon my arrival at the Las Vegas Convention Center on day two. I wanted to make sure that I walked around outside of the show, in the sections furthest away from the actual halls, because there are often some really great builds there. From my experience, some of the coolest cars are actually outside…you just have to go find them. The Meguiar’s area always has some nice cars as does the Mother’s booth. In between you’ll find some random cars here and there and that sometimes is where some of the most unique cars are…
