And its better than nuclear warheads on so many levels too.

My answers:

1- That's nothing that can't be solved with politics. International treaties on Nuclear engagements protocols should prevent a "mistake". For example, it should be a rule of War that before throwing nukes at a country you let them know. This could in turn benefit for the people that otherwise would be exterminated if they don't know their town is getting obliterated and Governments really know they are not about to be wiped out of existence with a nuke.

2- It's certainly less expensive than nukes. Or the effects of a nuclear conflict for that matter.

3- Anyone you wish to throw a nuke at, but knows that its a bad idea.

This is just like a super alpha prototype. You need to stop thinking about the uses it has now, and more in the uses its going to have later on. Maybe in the future you won't be holding a piece of thick hardware, instead, some ultra nano hardware built-in on an advanced OLED-type screen. I can definitely see the use on something like that.

  I don't know man, just be imaginative.

Comment Why couldn't Brazil just ask for the user info? (Score 1) 484 484

Am I missing something here? I don't understand why Brazilian authorities didn't just ask for the user network information.

It's Brazil's problem what their users do on the Internet. That's as far as it goes.

Oh, well, I guess its easier making the news by suing a big company.
