add "You see a bear, what color is it?"
They can have a back door to my phone - as soon as they give me the key to all THEIR systems (up to and including the President and IRS etc) so that when WE have the right to data, they can't say "we lost it". What? Its only fair - they watch me, I watch them
Actually, my reaction was "good, knew someone was going to get caught one of these days"
Not only can I fix a steam engine, I can build them
Then again, I'm odd - I started my work life as a machinist, moved on to being an electronic tech, and then became a programmer
As someone said - what percentage of crime is committed by blacks?
Further, even if you don't believe that look at this map...
Then do man ethnic overlay. Except for midtown, it strongly correlates with race, and if you stop and frisk in high crime neighborhoods, on even a proportional basis to the neighborhood, you will end up with a minority bias/ MOST crime in NYC is in minority neighborhoods...
It is SOP for BOTH parties to check voting records, what ISN'T SOP is the implied THREAT at the end of the letter "If you don't vote in this election, WE will want to know WHY"
Read the subject - My Daughter...(yes, the subject of the message actually sets the topic) - She got a 5 in CS, a 5 in Physics, taking BC calc and AP Chem this year
As I said in a different post, my daughter got a 5 on AP Comp Sci, and ALSO got a 5 in Physics, and is taking BC Calc this year . 2280 on her SAT in her Jr year, and can run a lathe and mill. Robot Nerd in training...
Took the exam last year, and scored a 5 (New York City - in fact, Bronx HS of Science)
Hot Grits, Oog the caveman - sigh
And since when does the US 5th Amendment apply to anything in Northumbria?
Well, How about (for real) a body was dumped in front of my house. They asked "Hey, we know that at 10:30ish this body was dumped in front of your house, did you happen to see the car?" (there were whiteness to the kidnapping a few miles away). Of course I told them what I knew "Nope officer, didn't hear/see a thing till I looked out the window and saw a bazillion flashing lights, sorry" "OK, Thanks"
You are correct - they should be looking at the outgoing mail stream, and if outgoing, insist on encryption.
Of course, they could also insist on encryption even internally, but there might be backlash
If GS and anyone else for that matter who was going to send data that could result in ""needless and massive" breach of privacy." start insisting on encryption? I know my wife's company basically sends an email with a link, and you have to go log in to see the data.
They are sending this stuff over the internet where anyone along the line can read it
MAYBE, just maybe, if the financial companies started insisting on say a public key encryption method to send confidential data, ALL of us would be much better off (GPG anyone?)
Ah, you're a bubblehead, eh? Thanks for your service! I worked on the Mk48 ADCAP for a while (civilian)
