In terms of business and certain privacy concern intensive work, the constant shrinking of recording technology like cameras and the increasing undetectability of such devices makes for an interesting future, as far as secrets and company trust is concerned.

Then again, we can generally hope that as the technology to make these devices advances, so does the technology to be able to find them.

The lesson here appears to be, if you're capable of scamming people online, then you deserve the money and your victims are morons.

I don't think the issue here is whether or not the person doing the scamming deserves to have the money, but whether or not the person being scammed deserves to have that money. If you're stupid enough to *ever* wire money to Nigeria nowadays (Nigerian royalty, anyone?), you give that money up right away.

You bring up a good point about the Russians as a whole. Yes, there are plenty of them that are good people, but you can find good people in any country. I don't think "reporter" meant to insult the people of Russia, but its government ONLY, a field in which America is still winning. Hey, I wish it was different, but it isn't.

Failure is more frequently from want of energy than want of capital.
