"But since we know that all our communications are monitored, it should actually be pretty easy, right?"

It is. It was somebody with a stolen laptop with TOR on a public WIFI spot.

So the solution is to forbid laptop thefts, TOR and public WIFI spots.

It would be nice if we could use umlauts and accents without the text getting ruined. It's no longer the century of the fruitbat.
Kill the dupes, can't be that difficult.
Also, tell those couple of morons doing the videos that they can use external microphones so that we don't have to listen to the camera motor instead of the talking people.
Throw out spammers like Piquepaille and his goons.

PS and kill Beta dead!

"I can't really see the reasoning behind this, it would be far easier, more efficient, quicker and cost effective to put panels along the roadsides, "

Needs permits since it's above ground, hides the views of rich people and gives everybody living there a right to object, on the roads they can do whatever they want. 1 owner, no permits.

"Until they can lay solar panels like they do pavement for virtually the same cost as pavement ..."

You mean waiting until the money making pavements is as cheap as the dead not-money-making kind?

"However, if you could send the 360 degree image data, then there would be a point to using a headset."

That's the idea they had. Now imagine you can connect to a drone in the Grand Canyon or Paris. Even if they would ultimately not want hundreds of tourist drones in the sky, there would still be the possibility of ground based 'drones'. Imagine Venice in summer in your cool apartment without the heat and without the stench.

"If you save as "CSV" in Finland (for example), it will be saved as semicolon delimited and not comma delimited."

Hardly. The comma or the semicolon are the field _separator_, not the delimiter, hence the name Comma SEPARATED.

The delimiter for text fields are quotes, because these fields may contain the separator character.

"Share buttons provide a quick way to do that."

Those Share Buttons also 'share' everything they can obtain from your connection with themselves, they all do that, that's why they are called trackers.

And since they are everywhere nowadays, they'll know everything you ever did on the web, even if you never click on one in your life.
That's where Ghostery comes in.
