So now I can't trust my keyboard, my router, my USB sticks, GPU, BIOS - vendors really need to start hardware locking flash ROMs.
I have also started noticing "NSA proof" products and services as marketing buzzwords. The heat is being turned up - jump out the pot or boil.
No it's not - they're not on your side.. when will people learn this? Corporations only care about profit - not your rights. This is just really manipulative PR - your rights were taken away but you're suppose to feel a sense of victory that the constitution will hold up in this particular circumstance. I have no doubt that limited disclosure will be allowed - but it just gets you use to the idea of illegal mass surveillance.
They are turning up the heat and although you may get use to it - you're slowly boiling.
What you need is a class action lawsuit. If more people supported the EFF it would be a start.. If everyone just shut up with all the talking and put their money where their fucking mouth is - but the truth is that people are shit scared; stagnant;
Why hackers do what they do.
I guess the domestic security state is unstoppable too, right? Why don't you just roll over now - oh wait..

Step 1. Record every facet of your life and take pictures.
Step 2. Backup precious videos of your cat, and snaps of your neighbour taking our her garbage, to the cloud.
Step 3. Meta data is extracted, date/time, GPS.
Step 4. Facial recognition is added to make it easier to tag your photos.
Step 5. Implicitly give access to your data to the NSA / GCHQ and allow them to unconstitutionally build a massive profile on you - including meta data / GPS / names of tagged faces.
Step 6. ???
Step 7. Profit!
I can see the advantages but I can also see great disadvantages - mainly copyrights and being locked out of your own system.
I think he meant in the OS dept. Locking users into proprietary software is all Microsoft will soon have left.
But but Android is only BASED off the Linux kernel yeah yeah but but.
Not only are they spying on you - they also stole all you money a few years back.. remember? Pepperidge Farm remembers..
I love you man. His legend lives.
