So you're going to go to all of this trouble to use a completely secure connection which conceals your identity and information about your browsing. Then you're going to go to a website where the first thing you do identify yourself to that website then the second thing you do is give yourself a cookie that identifies you to any website anywhere on the internet that has a facebook like button?

The specific innovation behind android that led to its success is its open nature. None of microsoft's patents contribute to this.

That's very interesting that they visited Cuba because the penalty for a US citizen travelling to Cuba is an administrative penalty of $50,000 with no judicial oversight. That means you get fined and there is no possibility of appeal. Internet access costs about £5 / hour in Cuba and something about £50-70 / month so its only really available in internet cafes.
