People who are politicians, lawyers or work for advertising agencies are more likely to be douchebags and venal cork suckers...

I was under the impression that Birth, Death, and marriage information was publically available in California.
It would seem that this law is in violation of the existing laws, but IANAL, nor am I a rich 'celebrity'. Hollywood folks seem generally above most laws, or at least shielded from them.
You won't actually be purchasing the tea kettle but getting a temporary, but revocable license to use the tea kettle, as long as the manufacturer decides to support that model. On a side note a tea kettle that comes with cookies could actually be a tasty advantage.
Or you could say, just give the kid a key to the front door like everyone has for years and years. My car is connected to the internet, and I get an email report monthly regarding fuel and engine performance, tire air pressure and other generally simplistic things that anyone who maintains a car should know how to do. I have numerous automated things in the house, lights, auto watering systems, a proximity opening pet door and the only one that really needs or benefits from internet connectivity are the cameras on my alarm system, and I can never be sure it is really secure, though I've checked it out thoroughly and monitor the firewall closely. When I am home I disable the cameras and leave the exterior sensors on.
My DirecTV on demand streaming service has gone to crap since AT&T acquired it. I can stream Netflix and Amazon at the same time, without an issue but watch a DirecTV stream on demand by itself and it stutters and pause quite often, in ways in which it never did prior to the acquisition.
Snowden did do our government a disservice when he posted those documents online. What the report didn't state was that our government did the US people a HUGE disservice when they acted as they did to force his hand. Torture of POW's ? The violation of US laws to support US interests. The means does not justify the end and just because they chose to take the acts out of the US doesn't absolve them of the guilt.
None of the above ? I'd like a steady stream with low latency at the bandwidth I was advertised, instead of the bait and switch the low down dirty scoundrels generally offer. During mid day and primetime TWC(Spectrum) fails to even resolve addresses reliably. Their DNS is configured on sequential IP's on the same subnet, forcing me to configure alternate DNS solutions e.g. Opendns, and Google DNS. My Amazon delivers a nice throughput but DirecTV on demand is jittery and pauses often.
