he violated the JSTOR Eula against using bots AND he did that not to download the documents for his own personal use, but for the purpose of redistributing them outside of JSTOR. This is his own admission. it's totally irrelevant whether he had the rights to read the documents, he never had any intentions of reading 4 million documents. also, he crashed the computer in the process by overwhelming the server

Submission + - Ask Slashdot- Secure Android phone? 3

An anonymous reader writes: I'm in charge of getting some phones for my company to give to our mobile reps. Security is a major consideration for us so I'm looking for the most secure off the shelf solution for this. I'd like to encrypt all data on the phone and use encryption for txt and phone calls. There are a number of apps in the android market that claim to do this but how can I trust them? For example, I tested one but it requires a lot of permissions such as internet access, how do I know it is not actually some kind of backdoor? I know that Boeing is producing a secure phone which is no doubt good but probably too expensive for us. I was thinking of maybe installing Cyanogenmod onto something, using a permissions management app to try and lock down some backdoors and searching out a trustworthy text and phone encryption app. Any good ideas out there?

completely off topic because Fox is no getting any money from your cable provider that could pay for the programming, and this complaint is about a feature that turns the screen black and k skips thecommercials, the user doesn't even have the opportunity to see if he would like to not watch the commercial. it's a systemic way to block out the ads, not an individual walking out of the room during a single break
