> I really think a medical savings account kind of plan is the right idea. Also, the saving account plan should compensate for poor people having trouble making payments by having people that can afford it pay a little extra. Then corporate greed/ignorance/bureaucracy strikes and the whole thing starts costing way to much and pays out to little. My point: you described insurance.

Doesn't "data consisting of all or part of any documents, e-mails, video, audio, and VoIP information being sent over the network by the user" mean "some random packets"? "Saving data unintentionally" is dubious but AFAIK Google just records SSIDs for non-GPS positioning. My something's-off-sense is tingling.
