I can imagine a world where we have a social network for each annoying type of social group...fashionistas, religious people, guns lovers, cat lovers, LGBT XYZ groups, Vegetarians, Miley Cirus alike, (even my type of person), it would be such a peaceful place...

Right...

Politicians discussing what should be put to referendum to the people concerned...important matters like this should be discussed publicly, ideas exchanged and like Iceland did for their new Constitution, write down in a public document. I despise decisions made behind closed doors because I don't trust people who think they know what's best for the rest of us.

WikiLeaks spaffs files showing NSA spied on French presidents

Re: "...there are persistent rumors that at least one former NSA staffer is also leaking files."

"The question is, "is anyone surprised at this"? "

Some people, they are not. But one thing is suspecting, the sheep can always be told "oooh, the thin foil paranoia again!" , other is the psychological effect of reading and seeing official secret files leaked.

OMG

" It appears that Apple values the music makers – who generate the real demand for the “content services” that technology companies provide – as human beings."

QoW!!! Values the music makers?? AHAHAHAHAH, I think you meant "they value their service with content" !!.

Come on, if the artists really really want to have the control, it's easy: the richer ones, group together and setup a service for all the artists out there, including the formers.

Re: historically progressive and generous company

"They arguably saved the entire music industry with the iPod/iTunes in the early 2000s, at least from the rampant online piracy that was ruining musicians and labels"

No, the music industry were desperate because they did all the attempts to stop a new type of sales and distribution to preserve the old model and the effect was people sharing more and more. 99c per song was a very hard thing to swallow but the labels had no choice, their tactics only screwed them.

Press releases and panelists

"said Moedas, sounding an awful lot like former Commish president José Manuel Barroso, when he announced Glover’s job back in 2011. Plus ça change."

They have the same idiot PR, the kind of people appointed based ont their useless value.

About the scientists...oh I love the Swiss system of democracy...

Moedas is an idiot of an accountant, people who should be forbidden to do anything outside their area of "expertise" if they have any...The other day, reading about the cuts in the money for the EU science and opening the doors for Ukrainians(nothing against the people from there), I had this crazy epiphany that he did it following orders of some kind to sell heavy weapons to Ukraine.

Like "scientists" there developing advanced control systems for missiles et all, but in need of funding to buy some toys from the EADSs and BAEs of Europe to test it...

Re: JahBless The UK can leave

What you want to state with that article of yours? 2005? And did you even read it? Do you know when the first cases where reported? And do you know the name of the european parliamentary that fingered the rampant cases of BSE in EUROPE? Many tried to silent him but stopped soon the casualties were to high to hide. Take your own advice and get a clue! Here, for your own recreation http://www.bseinfo.org/bseorigin.aspx and http://ec.europa.eu/food/food/biosafety/tse_bse/monitoring_en.htm

Re: The UK can leave

No, its not rampant in the EU. Do you want to know how we got the mad cows here? Cows imported from the UK. Now you have cases of mad cows not because they are feed with MBM (nice uh? feeding herbivores with bones and meat? fucking greedy), but its been passed from adult animals to fetus, many are calling it the bovine version of scrapie. Its nice to think that the UK its the only one reporting infected animals, and you want to believe that, but its not true. I understand the downvotes, when someones criticizes our country no one like it. But some are more rational and can live with it.

The UK can leave

the EU, I will be glad in many ways. It will be more easier imposing barriers to nice practices like the ones that give us the "mad cows". And imposing controls at the City, which were always opposed by the UK. And leaving the EU, it may fuel the independent desires in Scotland. If that happens, bye bye to most of the oil in the North Sea.

While I agreed that money going to the Mafia's pockets it's not a good thing, going to the City's Mafia pocket's its not good either.

The EU itself will change, the germans and the more at North countries are doing a big mistake by antagonizing the other countries, and when resentment grows, everyone loses.

Dutch MEP slams 'cowboy practices' of GCHQ 'n' pals following Gemalto allegations

JahBless
Bronze badge
Thumb Up

Omg...

"Sophie in't Veld was more outspoken: “Year after year we have heard about cowboy practices of secret services, but governments did nothing and kept quiet! In fact, those very same governments push for ever more surveillance capabilities, while it remains unclear how effective these practices are."

The Duch MEP nailed it! Red faces, ears burning etc,etc :)

"In't Veld believes the time has come for answers. “How will the Commission investigate these allegations which, when confirmed, would constitute a serious breach of European data protection legislation? How will the Commission act against illegal hacking activities by EU member states on the territory of other member states?”

The day the City lose power (and it will), I bet british politicians will be very "pro-european"...and as usual, the Comedians, sorry, Commissioners at the Commission will do nothing for now.

""If the average IT whizzkid breaks into a company system, he'll end up behind bars," said In't Veld, adding that "hacking a SIM card manufacturer in another EU country" could hardly be within the law"

Everybody knows that the whizzkids are ugly trolls and eat to much pizza, they deserve to go to jail.

"I mean, it's one thing to criticize the US and UK governments for hacking into stuff, but to then say they didn't know about IS seems a bit weird. "

You never heard about irony? Like the MEP said, govs and secret services demanding more surveillance because of the "terrorists" and only cared about IS when they needed? I have no sympathy much less respect for these people demanding more powers.
