"If SSL is the emperor's new clothes, then Ivan Ristic in Bulletproof SSL and TLS has shown that perhaps the emperor isn't wearing anything at all."
If you're going to reference "the emperor's new clothes" then certainly the emperor isn't wearing anything at all. That is the very meaning of "the emperor's new clothes." Sheesh.
So they are only spying on you when you read DRM'd books.
It is like the entire content industry wants people to choose PAPER BOOKS.
o PAPER BOOKS means no one else knows what/when/where and how long you read/watch/listen to something
o PAPER BOOKS means no worries about losing access to something you paid for
o PAPER BOOKS means no lock-in to single devices or single manufacturer "ecosystems"
Even if pirated content wasn't cost free and commercial free, all the other ways these guys want to fook me over for the privilege of paying them money is enough to drive anyone to pirate.
First, data is plural. Should be 'one datum point'. You wouldn't say you shot one elephants in your pajamas, would you?
Second, this system should be collecting zero data points, because no one should use it. You may laugh at the onion on my belt, but it once was in fashion, and no corporation or government knows when or what books I read, or to whom I lend them. Until the same can be said of eBooks or digital editions, such systems are broken and not fit for any use.
Doctor: Then don't do that.
"And what guarantees will you make against PHI disclosure?"

this is an interesting discussion..
..if you think confusing computer science and software development is interesting.
Complaining about the lack of programming in a CS degree is like complaining that physics majors don't build bridges.
"the courses taught in virtually all computer science [curricula] focus on theory, and they only dabble in teaching practical programming skills"
Well, it's good to hear virtually all computer science programs are doing it right!
I've heard the same story as most...fish left the seas to spawn amphibians, reptiles, and other land animals.
Such stories never address invertebrates. If, as the headline suggests, all land animals come from fish who left the water, does this mean insects and other land invertebrates evolved from fish?
And if you're using email to transfer a 10M file, you should be banished frmo the internet.
If they're insistent there's a way for an occupant to take "immediate physical control", why do they allow current cars on the road?
I'm not sure about steering, but certainly for acceleration and braking there's no way for drivers to take physical control of a modern automobile. Anything we do with those pedals on the floor sends a signal to a computer. The computer then decides what actions to take--open the throttle or apply the brakes.
There's a person initiating those functions, but the person does not have physical control.
On second thought, google it yourself.
Worst. Ask Slashdot. Ever.
The code groupies you hear about.
Is it pure risk for the backers? e.g. if they make a product, they get something they bought, but if the product flops, they loose their money.
And now if the product makes a fortune, they only get their product they bought.
In other words, is kickstarter just a pre-order sales website?
It's zero risk for the kickstarter backers. There is zero chance they will lose more than they pledged through kickstarter.
Product? They didn't buy any product. Kickstarter has been quite clear, it is not a pre-order service. Anything offered in return for a kickstarter pledge is essentially a thank-you gift. Like all gifts, you're shouldn't demand one or complain when you don't get one.
If a kickstarter campaign fails (that is, raises the requested funds, but never manages to complete the product), the backers get nothing and have no recourse. I don't see how it would be any different if the campaign succeeds, as it did in this case. (Other than for P.R. reasons)
So back to the question of risk, once the campaign reached its funding goal, that money pledged was gone. Not a risk, but a certainty. It's like asking, what is the risk if I drop $5 into a Salvation Army bucket? No risk--you're just out $5.
But my secret identity relies on wearing glasses.
I could make phone calls on it without carrying a separate phone. Beyond that and telling time, I can't think of any other use for a screen I'd want to wear on my wrist.
My first thought in response to the question was, "never".
But if a smartwatch was a phone replacement instead of just a remote control for something that is generally not out of reach, I might consider it.
Of course, I was never a big fan of wrist watches. I could never get comfortable with one. I prefer pocket watches. So I would buy a pocket smart watch. And being a pocket watch, it would be a little bigger than a wrist watch, with a larger screen.
Oh wait! I already have that. It's called, "my phone."
So never. My answer is never.
