RegSez: Putin to battle Snowden for Nobel Peace Prize
Close contest then.
Doesn't say if did the ones that paid go their data back or not.
So it's all a storm in a teacup then.
Or dropped into the box marked rubbish.
Re: Tinfoil Hattery...
probably true - the same thing happened to Skype after being acquired by MS - remember the supenodes going dwn?

On a little piece of wood,
Mr. Spikky Sparrow stood;
Mrs. Sparrow sate close by,
A-making of an insect pie,
For her little children five,
In the nest and all alive,
Singing with a cheerful smile
To amuse them all the while,
Twikky wikky wikky wee,
Wikky bikky twikky tee,
Spikky bikky bee!
Where is the option for so I can keep the right half of my body private?
The the left hand won't know that the right hand is doing!
Sounds like the organization running this scheme.
I am your opus,
I am your valuable,
The pure gold baby
That melts to a shriek.
I turn and burn.
Do not think I underestimate your great concern.

Re: Why don't the NSA just put out their own App?
That's like Winston Smith buying a HDTV - so Big-Brother could spy on him better.
Microsoft isn't just fro Xmas...
Snowden always comes over as a really smart guy - make a good hubby for some one brave.
BTW, He could be right if
it helps you know know
"who is my neighbour?"
They should start by teaching promises.promises.promises - all to be broken later on
without the pain of calback hell - don't call us we'll call you.
Prez Obama sez:
"Effective immediately, we will only pursue phone calls that are two steps removed from a number associated with a terrorist organization instead of the current three"
okay guys three step protocol from now on.
Yes we CAAAAAAAN! - ooops No we Can't.
how come there is no simple unsubscribe by email option?
$10bn - enough to pay their tax bills now, like normal companies?
Is this much different from the FreeNet approach?
Theoretically mobile phones can connect peer-to-peer
but it's not in the commercial world's / NSA's interest to perfect it for us
GCHQ: Mordor where the Shadows lie ?
I usually get the wind after Xmas
- not before
Way to Go!

The Futurologist departs
For the snark was a boojum, you see

It's depressing enough to fly ryan air - but now their captcha have turned into
pure marketing too - last time the phrase was "Book travel insurance".
I guess it doesn't stop robots any more - just annoys punters
C'est La ryanair.
This seems to be putting Semantic back into the Statistical
of Statistical Machine Translation
A few years ago I said Moo to a Ryan-air bod (as we'd been steered like cattle)
and almost got stopped from flying.
That time the bod said I'd insulted Ryan-air and that "I am ryan-air"!
Never again - tail between my legs ...INAL ho ho
Curiosity killed the cat!
Re: Who provided them, since Snowden himself did not?
May be the Independent did some earlier spying on the Guardian (basement whatever)
and are proving the point, post-hoc, that there really was a security risk until the GCHQ thugs
saw the MacBook + disks done to death.
I doubt it but the spin is possible.
Which film was it (Carry On?? ) where the servile thug picked up the phone and said in a Neanderthal voice "Intelligence here"
Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison for a point of principal.
He did the right thing for his country/people,
Quite satisfying that a MacBook was the whipping boy.
Now, how does a timelord just deal with the spooks?
one word: Duplicati
Re: three films??
On the surface
On the surface it doesn't seem too bad
its when you dig deeper ...
Snowden would be wise to check out all avenues of escape from his own particular purgatory on earth.
Maybe Pope Francis can help?

[Note El Reg complains if you try to cut and past that example into this forum - may be our developers are smarted than we thought.
Remember that time when Skype super-nodes went down for a day or so.
Wondered what was going on then.
