A team of CSAILresearchers at MIT have presented a new, untraceable text-messaging system designed to thwart even the most powerful monitoring.

It is a little bit complicated to explain in layman’s terms, but if you are interested in all the technical mumbo-jumbo, click here: Untraceable Text Messages – Guaranteed.
Vuvuzela is not yet commercially available, but the idea is nice; innit? For example, if you ever need to disappear but remain in contact with a handful of people, it would be handy to have something like this if it works just as well in real life scenarios. And it is so basic. You just never know.
