To avoid trip with girlfriend, travel agent sent ‘hijack threat’ to airports

 M. Vamshi Krishna, the man who sent the e-mail, was arrested by Hyderabad police.

The Hyderabad Police on Thursday arrested a travel agent who sent an e-mail five days ago to the Mumbai police about possible hijack attempts at the Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai airports.

Though it was mentioned the e-mail sender was a woman, the person turned out to be M. Vamshi Krishna, a man. “He promised his girlfriend living in Chennai that he would take her on a jolly trip to Mumbai by flight but had no money to book the ticket,” Hyderabad Police Commissioner M. Mahender Reddy told The Hindu.

While chatting online, he tried to convince her to cancel the trip but she didn’t pay heed to his request. “Unable to explain to girlfriend that he had no money for the trip, Vamshi decided to create a situation so that flights are cancelled,” Mr. Reddy said.

Vamshi created a fake ticket in his girlfriend's name from Chennai to Mumbai for April 16 and mailed it to her. A day before the scheduled journey, he went to an Internet café in S.R. Nagar and created a fake email id and mailed the Mumbai Police Commissioner.

The e-mail sent by the 'unidentified woman' claimed that “ that a group of 23 people were going to hijack aircraft from Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai airports. what she had heard could be true or untrue, but she chose to inform the authorities as she felt it was her duty to do so as a citizen". The e-mail ended with a line that read, “Don’t try to find me because you won’t be able to".

Bose headphones spy on listeners and sell personally identifiable information



Bose Corp spies on its wireless headphone customers by using an app that tracks the music, podcasts and other audio they listen to, and violates their privacy rights by selling the information without permission, a lawsuit charged.

The complaint filed on Tuesday by Kyle Zak in federal court in Chicago seeks an injunction to stop Bose's "wholesale disregard" for the privacy of customers who download its free Bose Connect app from Apple Inc or Google Play stores to their smartphones.

"People should be uncomfortable with it," Christopher Dore, a lawyer representing Zak, said in an interview. "People put headphones on their head because they think it's private, but they can be giving out information they don't want to share."

Bose did not respond on Wednesday to requests for comment on the proposed class action case. The Framingham, Massachusetts-based company has said annual sales top $3.5 billion.

Zak's lawsuit was the latest to accuse companies of trying to boost profit by quietly amassing customer information, and then selling it or using it to solicit more business.

After paying $350 for his QuietComfort 35 headphones, Zak said he took Bose's suggestion to "get the most out of your headphones" by downloading its app, and providing his name, email address and headphone serial number in the process.

But the Illinois resident said he was surprised to learn that Bose sent "all available media information" from his smartphone to third parties such as Segment.io, whose website promises to collect customer data and "send it anywhere."

Audio choices offer "an incredible amount of insight" into customers' personalities, behavior, politics and religious views, citing as an example that a person who listens to Muslim prayers might "very likely" be a Muslim, the complaint said.

Fast 10 will be the last Fast and Furious movie



During an interview with Collider, ‘Fast and Furious’ producer Neal Moritz confirmed that the franchise will end with ‘Fast and Furious 10’… and they already have an ending in mind.

“Yeah, the plan is to make two more movies,” he said.

“We kind of have the ending point of the franchise,” he added. “But we don’t know the in-betweens yet.”

“That’s just all of us kind of putting our heads together and coming together with something that we think is very special.”

How will that come about?

Well, there’s still the matter of ‘Fast and Furious 9’ – the next instalment of the hit action franchise. And with Charlize Theron’s Cipher still at large, I get the feeling she could play a vital part in how the series gets there.
