Never mind all the fluff and flurry about the NSA / other foreign intelligence services, Office365 has been shown to be unreliable at best, with a number of outages this year, as well as losing various client's data.
What a good idea to entrust it with government internal communications, how long before they break it?
Interesting how the US "justice" system works....
Compare and contrast the two statements:
The US Department of Justice notes that "the charges contained in [today's] indictment are merely allegations, and the defendants, including those charged today, are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty."
"As alleged (...) these defendants were packing bags to the brim with stolen cash, destined for the cybercriminal organizers of these attacks," claimed US Attorney Loretta Lynch.
"Today, we have sent them packing once again – but this time, to jail."
Yep, nice presumption of innocence, there.

What are they going to do with them? If a retailer is offering buy-back on an item, It's usually because they can sell them on to other folk, but I can't see this being a viable option.
Maybe they think sufficient people will use the money they get from the buy-back to put towards a new purchase?
Re: Land Rover. We may not own the company any more
Hence we can blame the faulty Jags on the Indians who own and run it, not on the UK ex unionised car workers who killed the industry by producing Austin Allegro's and Morris Ital's

the world's first 3D-printed, rocket-powered aircraft
I'm not trying to cast aspersions (or, indeed, nasturtiums) on the SPB staff, but is that really the case?
It just surprises me that, as 3D printing has been around for a few years now, some enterprising amateur rocketeer or RC plane enthusiast hasn't already done this?
