Very nice and welcome additions, though all of this should have been in from the get-go. And of course, now that they are, the self-deceivers can finally stop saying how unnecessary these things were. Throw in SMB networking (not WebDav), Bluetooth file transfers, and decent video recording and we're there.


Obama's Mobile Phone Records Compromised, Shared 278

Tiger4 writes "Verizon has confirmed that some of its employees have accessed and perhaps shared calling records of President Elect Barack Obama (coverage at CNN, Reuters, AP). Verizon says the people involved have all been put on leave with pay as the investigation proceeds. Some of the employees may have accessed the information for legitimate purposes, but others may have been curiosity seekers and may have even shared the information around. The account was 'only' a phone, not a BlackBerry or similar device, and Verizon believes it was just calling records, not voicemail or email that was compromised. The articles do not mention the similarity to the warrantless wiretapping or hospital records compromises of recent months. But that immediately sprang to mind for me."

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
