>> Me too. It's a hell of a lot harder to bug every man, woman, and child in the west than it is to intercept and crawl their communications

You don't need to do that.
You just put a worm or backdoor in all these peoples smartphones :)

>> bug every man, woman, and child in the west

The east attempted that before '89, didn't work so well

Windows 8 desktops, are just irritatingly ugly and not practical to do your work on. Non-crisp looking misty Windows icons, hidden away in icons. If you work with a Windows 8 desktop, for more than a couple of years you will end up with bad eyesight. If you are determined to make the Windows 8 desktop, work then you will spend hours on it customising it to make it usable for a work environment. Once you have achieved that and get used to it you will be told you need to update, it to the latest version which will make it look ridiculous again it will drive you fucking mad! You will spend even more time trying to make it look like a work environment again to the point where you are so sick of it you won't upgrade and you end up not using it. They all want to be a smart phone OS on a desktop.
