Mobile spy gear for cars

 

A document included in the trove of National Security Agency files released with Glenn Greenwald’s book No Place to Hide details how the agency’s Tailored Access Operations (TAO) unit and other NSA employees intercept servers, routers, and other network gear being shipped to organizations targeted for surveillance and install covert implant firmware onto them before they’re delivered.

These Trojan horse systems were described by an NSA manager as being “some of the most productive operations in TAO because they pre-position access points into hard target networks around the world.”

The document, a June 2010 internal newsletter article by the chief of the NSA’s Access and Target Development department (S3261) includes photos (above) of NSA employees opening the shipping box for a Cisco router and installing beacon firmware with a “load station” designed specifically for the task.

My last “real” job in the field I was formally trained for was working on the advanced engineering of the NS-generation (1996) Chrysler minivan, and as such I retain a high level of interest in innovation in this unloved and shrinking segment. Following the introduction of Chrysler’s Pacifica , you might think there’s not much remaining “white space” for innovation, but indeed Honda has found some .

On the standard seven-seater Odyssey , the middle row seat can be configured for “wide mode” with the two seats placed far apart to ease loading and buckling a kid into a child seat, or they can be easily slid inboard to facilitate egress to the third-row seat. They can meet in the middle for marginal access from either side (and “buddy mode” seating), or they can gather on one side of the car or the other, opening up a much wider entryway to the rear. If you’re sensing déjà vu, the 2014 Odyssey seats could be unlatched at the rear, slid inboard, and relatched. The new mechanism to slide them is far easier to operate, even by kid-sized hands.

There are a few BIG downsides, though. Obviously these seats don’t disappear into the floor (as the third row still does) when it comes time to lug the four-by-eight sheets, but neither do their seat backs fold down flat to allow such sheet goods or other bulky items to ride on top of them. If you do need all the space, phone a friend to help, as they weigh 69 pounds each when it comes time to stow them in the garage.

China's largest independent carmaker will continue to expand, and after Volvo and The London Taxi Company, Lotus can be their next purchase.
