So the hidden gold fish was a little coy?
I have one.
I turned it on.
It asked for a credit card number that would be stored on the device and would not let me proceed without it.
I turned it off.
Because GCHQ is more responsible than the NSA and wouldn't share info with them regardless. Right? Right?
Just get the fanbois to walk around with their phone out and camera on.
I mean, they do it anyway just to show off the Apple logo so make em do something constructive.
"you can fool some of the people all of the time........"
The rest buy Android kit.
Get out of Ukraine and then we'll talk.
Hugs and kisses
Put your info outside of the infrastructure you control and it is no longer secure.
Pirate Bay might want a bit of irregular processing.
You can do like many companies and move where legislation is not as strict to do your business.
The USA is sliding downhill fast. Police powers, corruption and a blase attitude about human rights is running rampant, Silent Circle moved to Canada, Lavaboom formed in Germany, and others are on the way. The US is no longer a haven for tech companies (unless you have a fruit logo on your product).
Don't silence your iPhone. Do better. Just don't buy one to start with.
This is why you cannot talk to the FBI or any Federal US agency.
If you lie to them you can spend one year in jail per offense, but they can lie to you as much as they want to get an admission of guilt.
When they take it seriously, I will as well.
Bloody marvelous. That'll motivate the rest.
I suspect this establishes the precedent for when the recording technology does improve in quality and duration.
Personally, I'd go for a CCD detector and turreted infrared targeting system to interfere with any cameras in use, but that's just me.
When society does collapse, the speed of it will be staggering.
If my car info doesn't come from an orangutang, a midget and a pedant it just doesn't feel right.
This is the new strategy.
It takes years to contest an illegal law. When it is declared unlawful, no one is punished, they just vote in a new law to be fought in court.
Someone needs to go to jail before this will change and as the government runs the courts, guess just how likely that is.
We need a space elevator for constant raising of supplies to space. Even a few kilos at a time would be worth it long term.
"We have sought to move quickly but carefully to put in place rules of the road to protect consumers and provide greater regulatory certainty for virtual currency entrepreneurs."
Translated: We can now monitor and record every single BitCoin transaction that goes through the place.
One person decides to shoot a gun and all of us lose a little more freedom.
There is no evidence I have seen that this bill, if in effect at the time, would have stopped Oct 22 from happening. A few more armed guards in Parliament would have worked a lot better.
Surveillance didn't stop the Boston Marathon double bombing, it didn't stop Mumbai and won't stop any future attacks. Once government gets access to your info it is almost impossible to get them out again.
Stop this freaking madness.
The greater argument, that the Patriot Act itself is unconstitutional, was left unaddressed.
If you've done nothing wrong, why are you worried?
Isn't that the logic you tell us?
It will let science identify the weaknesses in an Apple owners genetic code. Then, through careful RNA therapy we can slowly ween them off their dependency on iDevices.
"The intelligence services would have to ask telcos for specific data about an individual or a specific device if there is a "reasonable, articulable suspicion" of wrongdoing."
Or how about producing a court order? Just sayin...
Good Luck Germany.
The Yanks don't respect their own constitution or citizens. What makes you think you'll be treated any better?
Shouldn't she have a pipe to make it an official El Reg photo?
The biggest draw back to the first iterations was the lack of a symmetric design. They looked strange and made people's faces lopsided.
I don't want Google glasses, but if the glassholes insist on having them, at least make them presentable.
Go on kids. start making nitroglycerin with your store bought chem sets. Oh no, better not or Homeland Security will get involved.
It isn't random, it's gathering info on everyone.
No worries. There's plenty of room in the Ecuadorian Embassy and Assange (TM) needs a roomie.
The story to the police was bogus. That PC owed him BitCoin and couldn't pay.
No backup solution can override stupidity.
With respect you missed the BIG one.
Ensure the company you are entrusting your data to is fiscally viable and monitor that they remain so for the duration of your stay in their data center. If they ever go under, your assets and your access to them may be restricted for a long time.
Ensure your backups are made frequently and stored on your infrastructure. Have a transition plan to other resources using only those backups.
Lots of companies offer data centers today. Not all of them should be in that business.
If only the NSA protected MY information with such zeal.
I wish them luck, but I suspect the bill will end up gutted and will only pass with all surveillance caveats removed and a few hundred mil for pork barrel projects in other states.
Take LOHAN across the border into Mexico for a stratospheric good time.
How are they going to pay for the back-end of all this? Once it takes off there will be millions in expenditure. Where is the income to offset that?
"The more you tighten your grip, the more systems will slip through your fingers."
"He said it was ridiculous that a public IT system that stores personal data on so many people should be so unsafe."
My lord. Actually asking government to use more than a tab + slot cardboard flap to protect their users data? What a revolutionary! Then forcing them to change passwords, but not fix the underlying vulnerability that got him in there in the first place. There's a sensible and thorough solution to correct things. (Not.)
Let's not fix the problem, let's just charge the person who highlighted the problem to the public. They should go work for the American government with that attitude.
The hydrogen fuel cell device is the new Apple car. An entire vehicle designed to give an iPhone more than 12 hours leccy.
If government taxed fairly and spent revenues reasonably, perhaps citizens wouldn't need overseas bank accounts to avoid the Exchequer.
Should be forced to watch The Interview over and over and over and over.
The horror. The horror.
Won't someone think of the children!
A naked backside will surely destroy society. Let's not let any of the review committee visit Rio during Carnivale. None will survive.
With the Facebook buyout of Oculus Rift I'd be very interested in this offering.
I just don't trust Zuck.
The U.S. does not respect their own laws or Constitution. What makes you think a delegation will have any luck getting them to respect E.U. law.
Sounds like a tax funded trip to 5 star hotels and restaurants to me.
You misunderstand their protest rage.
They just don't want a Chappie sequel.
As long as Edward Snowden is a free man we have a voice.
Captain Zapp Brannigan: We'll just set a new course for that empty region over there, near that blackish, holeish thing.
Welcome to the United States of Paranoia. One nation under Big Brother. Where all vulnerabilities are created equal with privacy and protections for none.
And this is only the beginning.
The Bahamas and Bermuda are nice this time of year.
