So where can we see this video? Or did you give in and keep it offline?
Who would even think such a thing?
Ordinary people assume that when something is "connected" to their phone, it is connected in the same way that a cable connects things or they are connected to secure wifi with a password. The fact that you usually need to use a PIN number to pair Bluetooth devices further adds to to illusion that it is secure, because PINs are for security.
Engineers have to accept responsibility here. We have to make things secure by default, and respect privacy. Users don't appreciate the somewhat subtle differences between types of security, or that because one type of Bluetooth is fairly secure it doesn't mean that another type is also going to be secure, or even that there is more than one type.
It's too damn complicated for level 1 techs, let alone end users and the general public, to attempt to opt of surveillance, or even intelligently express their dissatisfaction with government and corporate policies.
Anyone can install a VPN client. A level 1 tech should be able to set up Thunderbird with GPG. uBlock/AdBlock and Privacy Badger are just a couple of clicks away. It isn't hard to do these things, but they have a massive impact.
The problem is not the difficulty, it's the lack of awareness that these options even exist.
If you were able to get all those likes to turn to votes, you could have an impact on policy.
Only a small one, if that. The reality is that those new voters would probably have the same voting habits as the people who do vote, so the outcome would be more or less the same. Part of the problem is the lack of granularity with elections - you get to elect someone for 4-5 years with a raft of policies. You don't get a say on individual policies or decisions, do you have to vote for the person who seems the least bad overall instead of for specific changes you want.
Second, if you don't want companies tracking your Internet usage, stop clicking on advertisements. Get all your Facebook friends to stop clicking. Soon they will be unprofitable and will go away.
You mean like TV, radio, billboard and print advertising has all gone away because no-one clicks on it?
Installing uBlock is the only way to kill internet advertising.
Perhaps you were exceptionally imaginative or knowledgeable, but most people, even security experts, didn't think it went as far as it turned out to. Honestly, did you think that the NSA routinely intercepted Cisco equipment being exported, installed back doors in it at a special facility, and then passed it on to its destination all in secret? Did you really think they were recording every single phone call made in certain foreign countries, or violating the US constitution millions of times a day?
If you did, congratulations. Most people suspected that there was spying and even some criminality, but not on the scale that has been revealed.
How is science inaccessible to women? Schools and employers are already actively picking less qualified female-identified persons over more qualified male-identified persons in the STEM fields so they can fill quota's.
You are confusing an ugly hack with a proper fix for the problem. There are endless studies where women complain about difficulty accessing STEM education. There are specific issues related to the teaching environment and social attitudes. It's been discussed many times, but you just keep ignoring these issues because they don't fit with your view that there is no problem.
Everyone in the UK should be using a VPN service already. They are inexpensive and will help block various levels of spying and monitoring, as well as providing a clean, unmolested internet feed.
We need to define a "cameron" as a particularly distasteful (to prudes) sex act so that it gets blocked by the porn filter. I suggest something scatalogical. He is a little shit, after all...
Would be nice to get May in on the action too. Some porn star should use her name. The chaos caused if we could get "may" into the filter would be hilarious.
If you don't like these stores then don't comment, simple as that. Some of us like to discuss these issues. Actually a lot of us do, judging by the fact that they often have the most comments on a given day.
The ribbon is a step forwards. Instead of scanning through menus with hundreds of lines of text arranged in some order that is combination of what some programmer thought made sense and the chronological order the features were added in, you get a nice visual representation of what each item does and can scan through them quickly.
Actually free movement is for work, and people coming to the UK can't get most benefits right away anyway. There are some, like access to some healthcare, but for example they can't just claim job seekers allowance or housing benefit from day one and without a job.

Physical sciences and maths are both above 40% in the US.
I certainly hope we will be okay without oil in the long run... And with modern equipment logging is fairly safe now. That's not the point though.
You can't force people to do things. Women already want to be scientists.
Right... I make an argument based on facts, that's trolling. There needs to be a -1 MRA block meta-mod.
Go on, explain why my post is a troll. I dare you to try.
So your argument is "keep the women down so I don't have to compete"? Seriously?
