Safe Harbour ruled INVALID: Facebook 'n' pals' data slurp at risk

Julz

Having worked for a few USA employers, they all asked me to sign a document agreeing to my personnel and other employment data to be kept and processed wherever they saw fit. Not sure how legal that was at the time and not sure if this ruling affects that too much. It would only be tested in court if somebody had the means and motivation to do it and given that you mostly want the job and compared to the US-MegaCorp, of puny means, it's pretty unlikely to be tested. So I guess things will just carry on.

Smart meters set to cost Blighty as much as replacing Trident

Julz

Re: I just dont get it !!!

I've had one of these for years (http://www.theowl.com/index.php/products/energy-moni/). Shows me with good enough accuracy what I'm using; doesn't really change behaviour much though so I guess the basic premise for 'smart' meters is at best unproven.

Unfortunately the UK gave up it's ability to make our own independent nuclear weapons a while ago. All we have are Trident, and they are far from independent; their replacements even more so.
