It is apparent that you have not seen the episode of South Park about the HumanCentiPad. If you get your choice of positions, I suggest that you be first, trust me on this one. As for your license to use an operating system. You agreed to a lot of stuff that you cannot do and that they can do. I saved you the time and effort of searching for Apple's agreements . Enjoy and remember, foods that you eat may not be agreeable with others.

I just bought a movie about apes rising up and ... I hope these primates are aware that we will be monitoring them and all or their associates. The last thing we need is for the events in the "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" to have the story wrong. I have been case all the pharmaceuticals and research lab. Now if I have to case all the zoos in order to maintain justice and the American way. If they do happen to win, I want you to to remember where you were the day they took over the world.

Well, the first thing I would do is play Robin Hood. Give every one of their customers a credit. It is the season for giving. This will prove that you where in there and they will not have to send any letters to their customers about the breach, it will be apparent. Top it off by sending everyone a letter from Saint Nick.

People are only be held accountable for things that they or any reasonable person would beheld accountable. Corporate users are taught not to use their 'work' computer for personal use or not to go to unauthorized sites. This is mostly to keep the corporate internet connection from being the source of malicious applications. Some organizations go so far to teach or introduce users to information assurance as part of their right to access the internet. ISPs will continue allowing Darwin Award candidates access to the internet as long as they continue to pay for service. God help the USA when free internet gets here for every home. By free I mean, purchase by US tax dollars. ISPs should do their part in education the account holder on internet usage, or ISPs should be held responsible for the attacks that happen on or from their networks. I am not asking that they censor access, just education the user. That annual 'this-is-how-to-safely-use-the-internet' course would remove responsibility from the ISP on any incident.
