"Upshot - if Lavaboom does not have my keys as they reside with me (outside of Germany), am I not safe? "
Nope, you have the Hushmail problem - they can (and were) forced to deliver malicious code when certain people logged in that saved plain text versions.
Maybe they'll finally do an MP3 and go DRM free to save the expense of whack-a-mole with lawyers...
malloc() on your platform might, but openSSL have their own wrappers around it, and cache the allocations before calling down to the O/S, so it neatly sidesteps that protection.
Err, so isn't the fix that MailMan etc. need to rewrite the DMARC/SPF headers ?
Re: Net neutrality nonsense
" traffic should be treated equally, without discrimination, restriction or interference, independent of the sender, receiver, type, content, device, service or application"
So spam filtering is against the law then ?
Re: Pointless wrangling
"I would only buy an ebook if I knew for certain that I can strip it clean of DRM. No matter what the legislation says."
This. I want my book to last longer than one company, tyvm. Hence a Kobo and a copy of WINE for Adobe's Digital Editions and some Python. Win.
There was some fuss about Adobe forcing a quick-march upgrade on the publishers to a version that didn't WINE. VirtualBox would be required then I suppose.
Re: Good performance? Scalable?
"Of course Java is going to be slower, C++ is compiled to machine code for the CPU it's running under.. not byte-code ran in a VM that's different to the host CPU!"
Come back when you understand how modern JVMs work. Wikipedia hint: JIT
"Finally, if going abroad give the customers an easy way to inform the bank, we are going to be in country X between Y and Z."
Barclays let you do this online. Which is probably why they didn't panic and send me a SMS alert when I payed the builder in cash the other week...
Because it doesn't send a message, in terms of cold hard cash, that you do not want your internet censored.
Discuss all this and more with Phil Booth in person this Tuesday in Manchester : http://www.meetup.com/ORG-Manchester/events/164318842/
Re: I doubt that you ticked opt out
Although https://www.faxyourgp.com/ makes it even easier.
Don't forget to pop in to Manchester next week for a talk on this very topic !
Phil Booth from http://medconfidential.org will be on hand to answer all your questions, along with someone from the ICO.

Hang on. I show someone a *picture on my phone* and they hand over money to me ? There must be more steps here, right ?
Re: meet the Law of Unintended Consequences...
Bricking your own phone is one thing. Having someone else pretending to be the police and bricking any phone they like ? That's another
Why Android ? Wouldn't flogging a SteamBox make more sense, especially with their own store ?

Another web site that hides core navigation behind a non obvious hamburger icon in a random corner
It's a bit misleading not to even link to http://www.planetary.org/get-involved/messages/bennu/ which is what you actually need to do.
Re: So. Where are the pictures?
People who are likely to notice this sort of targeted attack aren't targeted by it. Simples, and obvious.

Re: I suspect that the Aereo sea-of-paperclips antenna arrays are fake
Maybe there is a single large amp and rebroadcast array pointed at them - after all I don't know many datacentre's that already pipe coax down from the roof.
Re: What is the long term goal?
They do have a neat side line in the launcher business...
And/or Linux and get a nice fast laptop for hardly anything...

" This implies complicity from the backbone provider, and in that case why bother to hack it in the first place?"
I don't see why. The NSA (via a suitable front) rents some space on the fibre, same as any other tier one...
Anyone else want to ask their IT equipment maker of choice if they've fixed the holes since 2008 ?

There are non-offical-TLG EV3 software environments that work fine on Linux, for a start.

Well, that's just plain bollocks if you are talking to an HTTPS site. Unless TalkTalk have access to a trusted SSL root cert., in which case in short order it'll be revoked.
Friends don't let friends use HTTP - install HTTPS-Everyehere.
Censoring the internet is a problem even if you are not child. For instance an abusive partner can prevent access to rape self-help and support services and call it 'protecting the children'.
Not a good place to be- have you donated to the Open Rights Group yet ?
Re: "hoodwinked by malware-carrying emails purporting to be from their banks"
Real users don't even know where to look for the pad lock for HTTPS... you are assuming way to much.
It's not normal for the fake SSL certificate to be signed by a normal registrar, as opposed to some internal CA.

Flash has less vulnerabilities than FireFox itself on your chart :-)
That many stars for a game you can't complete without using Google because they left some instructions out ? Really ?
Re: Bedtime stories
Indeed. The best counter to hate speech is more speech.
Indeed. I just asked my normally privacy and rights upholding ISP (Zen) the same question. Hopefully I can just stop using their (will be broken) DNS and bypass the prompt.
Remote sites are going to be a bit more high risk - at some time X all their remote access will vanish ?
Plus my Kobo Touch reads PDF perfectly well, and I assumed it was the same Reader software at heart

That's basically what happened for car insurance, right ?

Never mind that, where can I^HSanta get that keyboard for using with OpenELEC ?
Un huh. And people will just buy phones for other people.
Waste of time and money.
Same reason Google does - to do triangulated near-by-WiFI to lat/long conversion without waiting for GPS to warm up.
