"...billing structure seems slippery at best..."
Sounds like they're perfect for each other, then.
If you're banking on Hollywood for substance...
Schmidt buys his own shit.
Time for that psych. evaluation.
The only one?
Has any enterprising techie/hacker discovered this in any other network capable tv's - Panasonic, Sony etc. Just curious to know if I need to unplug.
"We work hard to get privacy right at Google"
...and even harder at this kind of P.R. arse-gravy, apparently.
Facebook may want to think again after this little incident -
All things considered,
...I think they got off rather lightly. Name slinging is fun for a while, but in this case I think sticks & stones, up close & personal, would be much more satisfying.
This is just tired now.
Move on folks, nothing to see here.
Just for fun...
• an indistinct or billowing mass, esp. of smoke or dust.
• a state or cause of gloom, suspicion, trouble, or worry.
• make or become less clear or transparent.
• place under suspicion or cast doubt upon.
"The steps that the organization was willing to do without good judgment to pursue its mission and potentially violate people's privacy, it's not OK."
In other words - "Hands off, that's our job!"
First rule of listening to Politicians -
Don't believe a word they say.
The last iMac was thinner - then came the iPad mini - now the iPad air. Don't despair folks, Apple is still at the cutting edge of innovation - they've found a way of selling less kit for your buck. The ultimate in marketing hubris would be the 'iZilch™ - it IS thin air' </sarc>
P.S. - I do own & use a small selection of Apple kit on a daily basis, FYI.
"free content ad network"
free of content, surely!
...it gives "Tech Wizz' a whole new meaning.

What do you call 500 Lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
A: A good start.
it really doesn't matter - If someone can make it, you can bet someone can break it.
Is there a comparative study for fraudulent traffic on the 'normal' interwebs? I'm betting the percentages will be very similar.
"The damage, on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 12."
One better than Spinal Tap, innit?
Next on The Reg - Will Nigel Tufnel go for 13?
This guy sounds like one of the more lowbrow niches in advertising - a bad infomercial.
Danger already present
"...the only things disclosed are what the public should know but that does not place any person in danger"
Noble & wise - also a little naive.
Factually, people have already been placed in danger - the ones who perpetuate this secret world skullduggery, and I'm guessing they won't exhibit the same moral fibre in their efforts to perpetuate it, danger being part & practice of their stock-in-trade. I'm hoping Snowden has taken multiple precautions with the distribution & stewardship of the remaining info.
If you're stupid enough to instagram your expensive stuff for all to view, expect shit to happen. No sympathy here.
Not sure how to read this
Honestly - in the turgid wake of US
sensationalism current affairs, I'm not sure this hasn't been injected as part of a well orchestrated smear campaign by the powers-that-be, or that these statements haven't been at least partially coerced. As genuine as his/her inclinations may be, the transition from 'national security threat' to "military criminal' to 'transgender attention-seeking nut job' reads like a badly directed Hollywood b movie for me as, once again, the thread of original concern is obfuscated in the public media.
Amazon cloud, iCloud, Google and now Nasdaq - what's with the clusterf#*k of major tech infrastructure glitches lately?
Where's the fun in that?
I reckon this will be about as popular amongst men as a self drinking beer. Stop the madness now!!
Too big to ... ooops!
Re: Small correction
Journalistic typo perhaps - that could read as 'free-of-content'.
Corporatism & Greed.
This has nothing to do do with equality in work or any of the regularly touted 'climb the ladder of success' blurb - this type of behavoiur has no gender boundary, it is simply learned & passed on to the next individual with an over inflated sense of entitlement. It's pathological, it's inequitable, and occasionally shows it's aberrance in public with snafu's like this for all to see. Jump on them at every observance, folks.
It's Sky -
What did you expect?
Horses for courses
I set up my Gmail account to handle spam & unwanted email - so anything I enquire of online that I think may be remotely spammy or gratuitous gets that address. Just sayin'.
"The revelations of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden had nothing to do with the review, Obama insisted"
<sarc> I believe you </sarc>

Re: My contempt and hate of everything Obama is growing...
You say Osama, & I say Obama,
You say 'more amour', & I say 'more armour'
More amour, more armour,
Oh, let's call the whole thing off!

Now that is what I understand as innovation - Cheers Sir, & rest ye gentle soul.

...kind of appropriate really.
iWatch - watch me.
if the form factor of this is as it's name suggests then I hope, for those who buy one, there are no motion enabled functions involved - certain wrist movements in public might make then look a bit of an iTool!
Surveillance made 'cool'
I predict some very awkward social situations when these are finally released - with the possible inclusion of expensive rhinoplasty & dental bridgework bills for some.
Remember this article?
Really does make me wonder what was really discussed at that meeting, in light of current events.
I'll get my coat now!
Not doing it for me.
Usually I find the Bong column amusing, but considering the gravity of this incident & the almost wilful distractive tactics of the media in covering the base issue ( NSA spying on you illegally? Ooohh, look over there - Pole Dancer! ) I have to bite & say - no, not appropriate for me.
Considering its well publicised financial practices, Google should be taxed on the collective size of its balls for this statement alone!
The only innovation I see here -
- is with greed.
Self defeating behaviour?
If Apple wish to decrease their share value further through contentious behaviour ( and the resultant less than favourable press presented to investors) they certainly appear to be going the right way about it. With the hand of Mr. "Reality Distortion Field" Jobs (RIP) no longer at the helm, I get the impression of a steady descent into corporate mediocrity. Just MHO.
Isn't it wonderous
How the media focus of this event has been shifted from the issue of real concern, i.e. the content of the NSA documentation.
Props to the messenger Snowden for some genuinely courageous actions, but more focus on the message would be appropriate now.
Re: the problem with boats
"Shooting down a commercial airliner isn't an option... even our government isn't *quite* that despotic yet."
This could be worth considering then -
