I know Slashdotters are a bunch of nerds who got bullied hard and now want their revenge. But what did the judge do wrong? Recording private conversations is illegal and frankly I am glad that I can have a private conversation and not have it used against me in a court of law.

So if the evidence against the bullies was illegally gathered, it simply shouldn't be usable. It's like, if the cops beat up a suspect and he confesses to a murder, I agree that also shouldn't be used against the subject. Because it's important not to have cops beat people up to get confessions, just as it's important that we don't live in some surveillance state where everything we say is recorded and then used against us.

I'm sure the school is anti-bullying and would have offered some help if the boy had directly asked for it. However they don't go along with setting up wiretaps, and good for them.

Freedombox has a wikipedia page, and seems to want to place Facebooking/email/all your communications on an independent private server that only let you communicate with other people who have freedomboxes.

Maybe if they can put this on a machine that costs $5 and requires 5 minutes (or less) of setup it will actually go somewhere. As it is, it's like being the only person you know to own a videophone.

I don't see the issue. Amazon.ca isn't selling the device. Canada's population is about 1/10th of the USA, it's less affluent, and streaming services are less common, so it's not like American devices need the Canadian market to succeed. There are a million devices that are initially released in only one country, this will make it one million and one.

I'm sure Amazon would love to make more money, if this does well and if Canadian streaming services get larger they will probably sell this in Canada.
