GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) – U.S. anti-virus software guru John McAfee, who is on the run from police in Belize seeking to question him in a murder probe, has crossed into Guatemala and said on Tuesday he will seek political asylum there.
McAfee has been in hiding for three weeks since police in Belize said they wanted to question him as “a person of interest” about the murder of fellow American Gregory Faull, with whom McAfee had quarreled.
McAfee smuggled himself and his girlfriend, Samantha, across the porous land border that Belize shares with Guatemala. He stayed at a hotel in a national park before heading for Guatemala City on Monday evening.

“The malicious application steals contact details from the user’s address book and the infected device’s phone number.

And then the next layer is printed and it adheres to it.”

3D printing is already being used in the medical field, to “print” customized body braces for patients. And that’s just the beginning.
“Someday, we’ll be wheeled into the operating room,” said 3D Camp Houston Vice Chair Bridgette Mongeon. “And they’ll print a kidney in us, of our own biomass, which is kind of freaky when you think about it. It’s almost Frankenstein-ian.”
