Comment: Semantics (Score 1) 149 149

It's clear they *can* intercept and store anything they want and at this point it looks like they're working on intercepting and storing everything all the time. They probably don't actually look at it all though without a warrant (which is trivial to get at this point) or only in aggregate. Some might argue that since they have it but don't look at it they're not spying. For me, that's too close to the line. I'd prefer they couldn't collect it without a warrant. Sure, it might make their job a bit harder but those are the breaks. If you could see anything about anyone with the push of a button, would you refrain from pushing it?

"Android devices must respect our intellectual property rights"

I'm always amused when a corporation get's on it's intellectual property high-horse to try and claim some kind of moral superiority.

That's like a greedy sociopath who uses and abuses people suing someone for besmirching their good name.

"The little people I step on must respect my rights."

1. File patents for obvious ideas involving computers
2. Wait for someone else to implement the ideas and make money
3. Sue them
4. Profit!
