Yes exactly. There is going to be very little technical difference between routing phone call data and internet data. In fact isn't a phone call a 64kbs data stream?
Even if you can technically run generators underwater if all the stars are aligned, it's hardly what you want to plan for is it? How do you do repairs on a generator underwater?
All nukes need to be near water. All (or almost) all sources of water can overflow their normal height. Ergo putting generators in the basement is never a good idea.
As has been pointed out, if the law says the king can say "off with your head" because you looked at him funny, that's a fair trial because it is in accordance with the law.
It's debatable what the Patriot Act really "legally" allows, and indeed if that act is itself legal. Either way, most people never knew what was being done in its name.
The US has just as much malevolence, it's just that they dress it up pretty and pretend it is democracy (when it's really not).
The Start Menu never ever ever contained every application on the system. It only ever included ones that either MS thought would be good there, or else that Application vendors thought would be good there. (Yes, vendors provide many little apps in their packages that they don't put in there.).
Difficult, because these other crimes go "right to the top". You'd need big balls to authorise that.
You exaggerate quite a bit. Courts have actually declared the government's spying illegal based on Snowden revelations. Those arguments are continuing and in higher courts but the point is, it goes well beyond some guy thought maybe some secret should be revealed.
Then why was Nixon kicked out?
Possibly, but the Japanese government were caught out in a cover up on this disaster from the beginning. Are they still covering up? Probably not, but when you can't trust the government, why would you risk it?
Well hang on now. In the period when English as a language come into existence, there was no known distinction between these 2 concepts. Later on the scientific boffins started to call "mass" one of the concepts, and "weight" the other, but this never filtered through to common usage. I would say in common English therefore, mass=weight they are interchangeable. Only if you are in scientific circles do they become different. It's not a mistake, it's language. The scientists don't get to redefine language unless everyone agrees with it.
I'm not even using Apple Music and the update wiped out all the music on my iPhone. This was a long standing bug with IOS when the iPhone 6 came out, and I thought they'd finally nixed it a few months ago, but no now it's back. Meanwhile my iMac is at Apple for 10 days because of their failed 3TB iMac hardware, Argh, so I can't even synch it back on. Apple's quality has really dropped the last couple of years.
If this ended up violating someone the subject of a domestic violence order or something, they could be sued for some serious money. I know a woman whose details were accidentally revealed to her ex by a company, and they had to give her $10,000 even though no actual harm came of it. Now if harm HAD come of it, should could have got some serious cash.
More like "privacy hijacking" or "header hijacking"
