Need samples of the Penguin nose Art these new drones are going to have.
Part of his reasoning, is probably the simple desire to buy a home in the country he has chosen to live in for the last several years.
A non citizen of Singapore, can not own property there.
I thought anything abandoned or lost at sea, became the property of whoever salvages it, when they do....

Beer because I'm on my 3rd.

Does the black chopper need an explanation?
the the owners of Megaupload are innocent, because they themselves didnt actually upload copyrighted material. Yet the US can force New Zealand into arresting them and extradite them to face charges in the US.

Amazon still rips you off, is a common complaint, since despite the fact they advertise that you can send books to friends after you have read them, over 90% of them cant due to the deal they have with the book publishers.

I haven't seen anything, anywhere saying that Google were brute forcing WiFi encryption keys in order to grab this data.
So, people kicking up a stink because they are too stupid, or are unwilling to use secured services like the encryption that ever WiFi router has built in, deserve no claim to privacy in my mind.
Sorry France - But I think you need to fix your laws on this one.
