Re: Idiot

Uh, who'es the idiot? States are Countries all over the world. Just in the US, they're provinces...

Oh no, wait, they're countries too. It's just that the US central federal government has usurped power over them.

It doesn't print guns (yet), but it's not useless.

"It's proof that they can't, and that 3D printing at the moment is basically pretty useless."

Here's a good example as proof that it's not useless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=WT3772yhr0o

Also, the Liberator is a proof of concept, but it time, as the resolution of 3D printers increase, it could get there, especially when one prints with metal and can then polish the barrel.

Viruses infect vital control systems at TWO US power stations

Why the hell are these system still running windows??

Are they totally dense or what? We don't even know what a virus infection looks like since switching to Linux 5 years ago. These jokers know that Stuxnet and the like where created to attach Iran (probably by the US) and now they're turning on themselves.

It's not that hard to move away from Windows, for Pete's sake!!

BYOD sync 'n share

Re: trust no one

There is nothing preventing you from encrypting a file before you store it in dropbox. The process can be pretty much automated with something like Ubuntu's home directory automatic encryption feature. This will encrypt all files in your home directory and when transferred to dropbox, the contents will still be encrypted. If sure other OS's have similar features, but I don't use them so can't explain how to achieve the same effect.

Kenyan startup claims Google 'scalped' its data after staging a STING

Your reporting on this is weak! Why?

The issue is not primarily that Google employees have been systematically phoning Mocality members! Magdalinski himself said that they would have given Google the data had they simply asked for it. The real issue is that Google claimed that Mocality was part of Google or at least that they were co-operating knowingly, thus attempting to deliberately mislead business owners. And Mocality have multiple recordings of these attempts as proof!, which changes the picture substantially.

Please correct your reporting, at least wrt the last paragraph to reflect accurately what is real issue is.
