Comment Re:My how times change. (Score 1) 267

Say I bought 100 bitcoins back when they were worth nothing and never touched them until today. One bitcoin is worth $1055 now. What did I lose? Changing them into currency isn't a problem. Newegg accepts bitcoin so I buy random items and resell them on eBay. So yeah I take a slight loss there along with fees but come on how is that not a sound plan?

Comment All communication is monitored (Score 4, Interesting) 186

There is literally no way you can communicate with another person where you can be assured that your communication is not monitored. Even face-to-face communication in code is compromised, if the other party is compromised. Cell phones only work by collecting a lot of data about the caller and the caller's recipient. If CBS is only now figuring out that D.C. is a hotbed of cell data leakage, they are fantastically bad at their jobs.
