Sheesh. People focus on this arm of the "Law" but I'm more worried about those who dream this crap up and what they intend on using it for. SIN
How many developers were against the ACA at the start? Maybe some sabatogee? The NSA knew that many in IT just don't "completely" follow instructions/orders so they canned them. The same can and will be said anywhere/everywhere about IT. SIN
A multibillion dollar business cares? SIN
On your use of "Thought Crime". Did the student go beyond keeping it in his head? I do agree this has gone too far. Get rid of everything Electronic and we will get back our sense of selves.
Teen online privacy really only applies to Parents.
Really? This is not newsworthy within the vein of Slashdot. WTF.
Smoke and mirrors. Data Mining with F@cking us all in the end. What would anyone think of people who only earn 1 dollar a year to avoid paying taxes on Billions. @ssholes I say.
MS and others have been wanting to get Consumers away from Physical Media anyway. This "leak" is on par with that. Everything is intended to be downloadable. What that does for Gaemstop and the like who knows.
Google is setting up Nets. The choice of Cities is carefully planned.
What you clueless folks don't get is the each country on the list has they're own "Corporation's" or whomever that is calling the shots. The difference is that they think in a like minded way. In the US those brought up without a core value(s) are prone to live a choatic life guided by slack behaviour. We are all allowed to live in a semi dream world wishing we had a lead role in a Utopian dream till we check out. Blah Blah Blah.
your making the case why people don't change or adopt anything new.
My comment wasn't so much insult as its the reality we see all the time. I'm 50+ and get annoyed when my peers expect someone younger to do the "research/computing" for them. I take almost any opportunity to embarrass the hell out of them. They along with others are lazy like those who can't meet lifting requirements and duck out of "Heavy" work but expect the same pay. Quit your whining and learn what to do with those devices other than buying them for bragging rights and barely get off the home screen. SIN
