WikiLeaks has dumped even more U.S. secrets -- this time, they include a list of international businesses considered crucial assets for the country.
This report on Sky News says the list is like a go-to guide for terrorists seeking the U.S.’s Achilles’ heel.
“The cable from U.S. missions worldwide, advises the State Department the long list of international firms, including pipelines and factories, which if destroyed, disrupted or exploited, would likely have an immediate and deleterious effect on the United States. ... Included on the list is BAE in the UK which builds the F-35 fighter jet. ... And globally, oil and mining companies, such as Rio Tinto, are also named.”
Meanwhile, WikiLeaks’ very own crucial assets are also under pressure. Just last week, Amazon cut off the website's American servers, while PayPal froze its donation account. Now, a BBC report says, a Swiss bank has also taken action.
"The Swiss post office's bank, PostFinance, has frozen the accounts of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The whistle-blowing website says the freeze includes a defence fund and personal assets worth 31,000 euros. … PostFinance said Mr Assange had ‘provided false information regarding his place of residence’ during the account opening process.”
And the setbacks don’t stop there. On Monday, the AP reports, WikiLeaks’ Swedish servers had become unresponsive, and may be under cyber attacks.
Assange’s arrest may also be imminent -- according to Reuters, the U.K. has received an arrest warrant from Sweden, who wants Assange for questioning about sex-crime allegations. (Image from Wikimedia Commons)
Despite the pressures -- NBC reports, Assange remains -- quote, ‘defiant.’ If he’s arrested, he threatens to release what he calls a ‘thermonuclear device’ -- in the form of... what else, but even more uncensored government documents.
“It’s a secret cache of uncensored documents that’s been described as a ‘poison pill.’ Julian Assange is threatening to unleash the archive of documents if his website is shut down, or he’s arrested. ... The huge arrays of files is said to have documents on BP, Bank of America, and Guantanamo Bay.
“It’s a ticking time bomb with a remote fuse. So, this bomb can go off, the second that they release the key. The key will spread around the Internet in a matter of seconds...”
And finally, a CNN report focuses on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who says he has taken steps in the investigation of WikiLeaks, but does not go into details.
“[Holder] declined to comment when asked whether the actions involved search warrants, requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which authorizes wiretaps, or other means, describing them only as ‘significant.’”

BlackBerry is back online but are customers on board? Research in Motion co-CEO Mike Lazaridis certainly hopes so. He took to the BlackBerry YouTube channel to make this personal apology for the company’s recent issues.
“For those of you affected I know this is very frustrating. We are doing everything in our power to restore regular service levels and we’re working tirelessly to restore your trust in us.”
But is it too little, too late for the troubled company? Michael Gartenberg, director of research at U.S.-based technology firm Gartner Inc. tells the Winnipeg Free Pressthat the outage, which left users on five continents without e-mail or text messages for four days is...
"’..****ing at a time when RIM is facing increasing competition from companies like Google and Apple and Microsoft, all launching new products...”
And writers at Gizmodothink the company’s ineptitude is inexcusable.
“...the fact that this was a systemic failure and not third-party havoc should be positively chilling. They don't know what happened. They don't know how to fix it. They just know that it's their own fault.”
So what exactly is the fallout? According to the New York Times users are angry -- and taking to the Internet to vent their frustrations.
“On CrackBerry****,a popular online forum that caters to BlackBerry owners, a thread called ‘Enough is Enough’ had attracted thousands of views and hundreds of comments by Wednesday afternoon.”
But the exasperation doesn’t end with BlackBerry’s customers. CNN says investors may be looking to make some big changes after the outage.
“The disruptions also give ammunition to disgruntled investors, who want to remove and replace RIM's board. Small activist shareholders including Canada's Jaguar Financial Corp. are pushing the company to sell itself.”
So is BlackBerry on its death bed? Wired’s New York Bureau Chief John Abell says no, but tells CBSthat it needs get its act together if it wants to improve its prognosis.
“I would say that it’s been a horrible year for BlackBerry. We all know that. They have maybe a year to catchup, to compete with Apple, to compete with Android, cause otherwise people have so many choices now that they don’t need this anymore.”

Expect Labs is startup based in San Francisco that is building a technology platform designed to reinvent how we have conversations. Expect Labs is the creator of the iPad app called MindMeld, which is the first voice and video calling app that can actually understand conversations in real-time to make it easy to find and share related information as you talk.
Hey everybody this is Tim here. This is my first blog post and I'm excited to announce that we're launching our new company Expect Labs after two years of hard work. I'm here at TechCrunch Disrupt with George, who's working hard, and we have Brett over here and we're here late at night at TechCrunch Distrupt before it starts. And we're going to be presenting on stage on Tuesday here, so this won't go live until after that, but I just wanted to say hi everybody and hope you'll check out our website. We started Expect Labs really based on a vision about how we think applications are going to work in the future and we see that only just a few years from now. We're going to live in a world where there will be computing devices all around us and these devices will pay attention to what's happening in our life and in some cases listen to and understand our conversations so that they can better anticipate the information that we need. So, you'll be on the phone and somebody will mention that they want you to meet them at a restaurant. He'll put the phone down and we'll show you a map to how to get to that restaurant. You'll be on a video call or web conference on your iPad or tablet device and somebody will mention a new news article they read and that news article may pop up on your screen so that you can see what they're talking about. Or you can even be in a business meeting and somebody might mention they want to see the Q3 sales numbers or something like that. And it's not unrealistic to think that that information would appear on the flat panel display next you. Now this may sound a little bit like science fiction, but I think probably within the next decade, and maybe even sooner, we're going to be living in that world or certainly we'll start to see applications that are able to do things like that. And Expect Labs is trying to build the technology, the core technology, to at least take the first step to get there. So, we're launching today. Please visit our website and check out a little bit more about our technology and also the thing that we're announcing is the availability of our upcoming iPad application called Mind Meld, which is built on this technology that we're building, and it's the first voice and video calling app for the iPad that can actually understand what you say as you talk, and hopefully, that will allow people using it to be able to very easily find and share related information as they're having a conversation on the fly. So that's all I wanted to say. Thanks for watching, and look forward to more announcements about our technology and our iPad app in the future, and please feel free to email us at infoexpectlabs**** if you have any questions about any of that. Okay, good night everyone. Talk to you later, bye.
