It got panned by people who didn't know what they were buying, but knew enough to not like something different. It's that treacherous middle-ground of kinda-sorta-ish knowing what they're doing and hating anything that isn't exactly what they learned on. High- and low-level users got exactly what they wanted.

Via the EFF comes news that, during a case involving the use of a Stingray device, the DOJ revealed that it was standard practice to use the devices without explicitly requesting permission in warrants. "When Rigmaiden filed a motion to suppress the Stingray evidence as a warrantless search in violation of the Fourth Amendment, the government responded that this order was a search warrant that authorized the government to use the Stingray. Together with the ACLU of Northern California and the ACLU, we filed an amicus brief in support of Rigmaiden, noting that this 'order' wasn't a search warrant because it was directed towards Verizon, made no mention of an IMSI catcher or Stingray and didn't authorize the government — rather than Verizon — to do anything. Plus to the extent it captured loads of information from other people not suspected of criminal activity it was a 'general warrant,' the precise evil the Fourth Amendment was designed to prevent. ... The emails make clear that U.S. Attorneys in the Northern California were using Stingrays but not informing magistrates of what exactly they were doing. And once the judges got wind of what was actually going on, they were none too pleased:"

Regardless of the system, an incompetent privileged user is always going to be a vulnerability.
Advanced, persistent threat.
Milestone has a free version that'll record for... a week, I think? Also, VideoIQ cameras have built-in analytics, along with some Bosch cameras.
Exactly. Thank you.
If someone's PC gets a bootkit, they're already damn well past the point of having to worry about the MBR.

Is there an issue with pointing out obvious shills?
But is that due to a lack of standard conformance on the part of LibreOffice or Microsoft?
