Has deflation hit the economy to such and extent that 450 is now equivalent to 1500 back in the day?
According to the company, it will use the new injection of cash to accelerate its growth and momentum in the secure communications market and to meet the “overwhelming demand” for Blackphone – its fully encrypted smartphone designed to thwart snooping governments and other attackers.
"The move to Switzerland is extremely important for us as a company serving a global customer base. Switzerland's strong privacy laws, legendary neutrality, and economic business advantages will allow us the ability to scale to Silent Circle's rapid adoption by businesses, governments and individual pro-sumers around the world," said Vic Hyder, Silent Circle Chief of Revenue.
Last year, Silent Circle shut down its encrypted email service to avoid becoming a target after the US government subpoenaed the records of Lavabit.
SilentCircle was co-founded by former Navy SEAL sniper Mike Janke, and PGP creator Phil Zimmermann, and has created a platform for encrypted text, mobile phone, video teleconferencing and file transfer services through a secure, proprietary network and set of applications."

I didn't talk about solar. I don't care if you are or are not against solar. Or wind or whatever. I talked abut nuclear (which is probably the best option now for mass electricity creation, yes) and the dangers associated with it some people never want to (fully) admit or just think you can engineer yor way out of those problems. Oh yes, you probably can solve imaginable technical problems. Problem is not everything you can imagine. And then there will be always the human factor (careless, greedy, bored etc).
Why people always have to get off-topic if something isn't to their liking? You probably are a good candidate to be a politician.
It didn't talk about nuclear waste. Accidents happen in nuclear facilities. It really can go kaboom. But yes
Ant that waste management and monitoring... c'mon

You know there is not one plane that's still floating in the sky. They all come down sooner or later. Nicely or not so nicely. Don't downplay this.
