No, but they make very popular, very compatible, very SUCCESSFUL things.
One might also note that the mainstream industry makes orders of magnitude more money (a measure of success) than the "bedroom produced" music and talent scene that you belong to.
I'm not sure you want tiny pieces of metal wandering around in an electrical system located in a microgravity environment. It might be fine if they had some sort of magnetic or adhesive system of sequestering or containing these.
One such project that focuses on R&D into detecting, avoiding and withstanding IEDs is JIEDDO. Joint (as in, multiple branches of military) IED Defeat Organization. Worked on it for a while, they have very smart people working on that program, trying to save peoples lives every day.
Except that it wouldn't be rape in that case. Rape in most modern legal systems has a very well-defined, specific meaning which includes factors that contribute to the rapists intent and actions. While I am not an expert on Swedish or International Law, it doesn't seem logical that a progressive country like Sweden would allow such a claim to stand. Also, please understand that I'm not saying that in this hypothetical case, that the person who was HIV+ was in the right. In some states in the US, sexual contact with someone without informing them of your HIV status (if you know or suspect you are HIV+) is a very serious crime.
The client page says exactly what the client will do when it's installed. Nothing about sniffing traffic, scanning your hard drives, etc. Perhaps you could voice your concern to the HelpDesk or network engineers?
Funnily enough - the Rockville MicroCenter is in what used to be a CompUSA store, years ago.
Their is indeed a national focus (mandate, really) to implement DNSSEC on all internal DNS mechanisms in the
.GOV domain by some arbitrary date. Unfortunately, it's one of those famous Bush unfunded mandates. A deadline with checkpoints and costs, but no money to cover those costs. I'm working at one of those 3-letter-agencies that is helping lead the way on DNSSEC in the government space, but their is SO MUCH RED TAPE and so little time to negotiate it.
It certainly made it illegal for two parties to sell liquor to one-another in the early 1920's. That's a private-party transaction if I've seen one.
