Obviously why NZ the government found the police were using an illegal surveillance technique, so they just made it legal, then backdated the law to take effect just before the first known use of this video surveillance. Hey presto, no day in court for those responsible.

Because it is more than just getting your songs onto the device. It's playlist management, and the metadata it syncs, making songs and podcast you played as played in itued too. I just wish they would remove rest of the i device synching to an always running service so I don't have to keep itunes open All the time just to sync my phone.

And that is why there is protection against compelled disclosure of keys. Can you prove someone hant forgotten a password? What if like true crypts double volume, they just gave cops the key to the volume with nothing on it? What if it needed a kefile that has now been deleted or changed?

Here in NZ we have Quickflix who have no content worth watching for streaming and for DVD/bluray deliveries. I get 4 disks a month, 2 at a time. I often don't have the time to watch them when I get them, so I rip them to watch on my PLEX anyway. And they might be worried about the streams being ripped? If they provided a stream I could legally access anywhere just like my PLEX, I'd use it.

And all that segmentation costs money and hits productivity. You do realise Target would probably be as cheap as possible? I've inly worked in 2 placed with security you've described. A government support service and a bank. No corporate has had the money to do this, not even the retail outlets I've worked with. Building management servers probably authentic to are to the same forest as the finance server, which thanks to the shitty way AD requires lots of open ports proably means a flat open corporate back end.

When all else fails, read the instructions.
