EFF: Amazon, AT&T, and Snapchat Most Likely To Rat On You To the Gov't 69

jfruh (300774) writes "The EFF has released its annual "Who Has Your Back" report, which uses publicly available records to see which web companies do the most to resist government demands for your personal data, by requiring warrants and being transparent about requests received.

I second this post. I can't say enough good things about the ASUS Transformer. The tablet rocks especially when you consider how much cheaper and open than the iPad it is. Not many people are talking about it here, I guess its still a secret with not as much publicity as the Zoom.

The Android OS right now is pretty close to iOS. Its a little less polished, and does suffer from the occasional bug, but for the price you're gaining flexibility.

I'm perfectly okay with you going after the insurance industry. They deserve every bit of the mid westerner's ire. But the difference is, the insurance companies are deliberately screwing you out of your claim. The Army Corps was responding to a natural event. Even if there were no dams these areas would be flooding anyway.

Move out of the flood zones or buy flood insurance. Its no different than the people that blamed the Army Corps when New Orleans flooded. Wake up people, you're living below sea level (New Orleans) or living in the 100 year flood plain (Midwest). What did you really think was going to happen?
