The exact same way they are doing it now.
(I have no idea.)

The summary seems to say that only high-value targets are being intercepted, and that Cisco is trying to protect those customers by shipping to somewhere other than their place of business. If that's their new form of protection, it doesn't change anything if the NSA knows who it belongs to.

First line of the article:
"What if the key to your house was shared with 28,000 other homes?"

The fact is, you very well might share the key to your house with more than 28000 other homes. Common lock brands you can buy at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. create a surprisingly low number of different key/tumbler combinations.

Let's say you lived in a valley and couldn't pick up any OTA TV broadcasts. You have a neighbor who lives on a hill who can. Aereo is like your neighbor allowing you to put an antenna on their property (and charging a few bucks for their trouble and the use of their land). I don't understand the problem.

What's next? Getting people to use it after they download it. I suppose I'm counted in that 100 million, but I've never actually had a reason to use the product. Absolutely everyone I know in business and personal life uses MS Office, and I get the whole MS Office suite free through work or included in any new PC purchase.
