My old employer did it! Technically, it is a violation of HIPAA if employees do anything related to their benefits on the corporate network.
I have not only noticed this with Google but I've also seen something similar on legitimate file download sites like FileHippo, CNET, and others. They plaster the site with download links and you might not actually be downloading the original file(s) that you have intended but adware. It's actually hard to decipher the download link that you actually want to click. I have lost count of the number of computers I've had to clean up because of this. It's really dishonest.
Wasn't she the Queen Bitch that was complaining about CIA spying on her computers? Wow, talk about hypocritical. Guess when it happens to you, it isn't so trivial anymore.
Yes, it is wholesale spying! But, in this case, it's a good thing. Let the politicos sweat for a while.
Rather than spying on American citizens, the CIA is actually spying on our elected officials. This makes me smile even more. I would really like the CIA to release this data. This is, no sarcasm, a good use of the CIA. Our elected idiots need to be reigned in.
They can have all the speed in the world but it honestly doesn't amount to a scrap heap of shit. I'd be more interested in better, more reliable broadband for consumers and small business. Our broadband is still late 1990s, early 2000s technology while the rest of the world can boast gigabit to the home. I have a friend in England who has a full 100MB symmetric line for what I'm paying Verizon 50 down and 25 up and he even gets an, OMG wait for it, a static IP without bandwidth caps and port blocking. I'm sick of hearing telcos brag about their "high speed" is the best. The truth is, and no surprise here, they suck!
Well, there goes any citizen's chance at recrimination against the government. The NSA got it's wet dream, get out of jail free card and ordered by, none other than, the legal system itself! Maybe, this data should have been ordered to be removed from the control of the NSA and put into private hands for storage.
to the concept of the remote controlled plane or helicopter? Now, the marketers have got their dirty mitts on it and have to call in a drone! It's not a drone, it's simply a fucking remote controlled aircraft. I love hearing the kids ask for drones for a birthday present or whatever. This entire thing is not a NEW concept yet everyone is drooling and oooh aaaahing it like it's white shit hot. I hate to break it to you but this shit has been around for a very long time. In fact, many ham radio operators got their license so that they could fly model aircraft higher and at longer distances. I should know, I'm one of them.
This is the result of people outsourcing their thinking to others. This is what happens when you have politicians running the show.
I have a very difficult time believing this. This sounds like junk, alarmist science. The problems are more than just meat. We cannot even begin to understand what impact human beings have on the environment. We can really only speculate and postulate. We do not really understand the weather, which is only a part of the climate system. Anyone that claims to be an expert on climate, I raise an eyebrow. This does not mean that we should not be better stewards of our home. Conservation is wise and prudent.
Let's begin making government smaller by getting rid of the NSA. Imagine the savings to the tax payer!
This, or go to a VPN service provider like tunnelr.com or setup an SSH tunnel on your own.
There is a very broken, hazy line between marketing and lying.
From the article, “pretty sure that information within Google is now safe from any government’s prying eyes.” Well, pretty sure just doesn't cut it for me.
Normally I'm a staunch railroad fan, but this thing is cool. Hell, if I got a chance to drive this thing I'd happily fill out an employment application at WalMart. This futuristic truck is pretty bad ass!
