I remember once perceiving Europe as becoming more and more liberal....everybody would eventually be able to express themselves without governmental interference.
It was a good feeling!

Impressive 'analysis', paragraph after paragraph running slalom between the numerous facts not in line with the conclusion ('Trump is Eviloooous'). No wonder left-wing people in the US are substantially more ignorant about the other side's arguments than right-wing people.
Misuse of the security apparatus in order to attack the political opposition ought to be something everybody want to expose and stamp out at the first hint of this happening.
DOJ/FBI has for many months obstructed Congressional oversight efforts .. long before the publication of of any memos. Sad to see The Reg, otherwise so in favour of intelligence services oversight, parroting bad excuses for non-transparency.
The case was reopened because of thousands of State Department emails turning up on a computer belonging to Anthony Wiener. These emails were found independently by the NYC FBI office. NYC FBI was evidently not briefed on the 'HQ' special treatment of Clinton and her minions.
Comey's promise to keep the Congress updated combined with the high certainty of a Cinton victory allowed for the second showcase 'investigation' and 'exoneration'.
Another puerile activist 'article' with zero information value. Any stories going against the Struggle is ignored (Awan brother still missing).
Too bad Reg let this go on, the other journos writing well and informative.
Is there a way of flagging biased activist 'articles' in advanced so we can avoid them? It seems like half of 'policy' articles here links directly to a democraticunderground posts.
There we are, untruths is being dished out again by BBC.
Even See-Hear-Say nothing politicians sense how trivial it would be to introduce a subscription model.
BBC's current self-serving attempt to keep status quo is in line with how they blocked a subscription/digital card slot from the specs for the over-the-air digital set top boxes. Anything enabling adults choosing and paying for their own tv viewing is frowned upon by the cooperation.
Establishments' racket of forced payments for top-down ordained media has always been a product of profound European disrespect of the 'lesser ones' freedom and choices.
This is the 'net neutrality' folly in a nut shell, using regulation to suppress other companies' service innovation.
Sadly, even the the Reg have emotional activist-journos who defend the excessive regulation like there was no tomorrow if the market is left to (shock and horror) itself).
Left-wing activists don't get free markets, never have and never will. Their 'oughta be a law against that' reflex is exploited by crony companies and politicians alike.
Reading the headline, my head was spinning: This author writes about something non-trump related...oh wait, the guy mentioned Trump...yeah Great Scoop Kboy... a non-IT negative Trump story!
#RESIST #RESIST #RESIST!!!!!!!!!!!"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is just like the Nazi occupation man,
What a garbage article, is this what the formerly IT site is going squirt out! Left-wing tweets about anything Trump?
The reality is that the United States' National Security Council will function, de facto, exactly as it has done for decades. The additions/subtractions are merely formalizing what's going on alraedy (not all people need to be at all meetings if it's outside their field.
In fact, the Council will work better, as Obama didn't follow his own/the traditional setup of the various levels. Finally, the not-alt-right Steve Bannon is a former intelligence officer and more than qualified for the council. I rather have one Bannon on the Council than ten Susan 'lying' Rices.
It's nice to see that the Dems and Obama finally take cyber security seriously (when DNC is attacked).
I wish they had begun caring about the issue earlier though....it is a scandal how Obama's Office of Personell Managment lost 22.5 million (!) confidential background check data files to hackers.
I remember Obama had to pressed just a single person's resignation as a consequens of this cyber-security scandal. Now, it's different, the Party has been hit and the Dems minds are focussed.
Sort of expected The Register to stick to the main point here:
The awful attitudes toward information security as demonstrated by the democratic party and the obama administration. The data losses have been staggering the last few years.
Instead, the journo only engages in tiresome 'misunderstanding' of one of Trumps 'funny tweets'. Dem's plan of misdirection is bloody obvious. Let's talk about anything other than how dnc shafted Bernie.
Come on The Register, you can do better, focus on the real issues of information security.
Moved to the US this year.. January... a few short months after receiving a BoA debit card, a replacement had to be issued. No less than 3 major retail chains (visited by me) had their PoS terminals compromised. Now a major US bank is compromised to through sheer stupidity/sloppiness.
The IT security muppets of US need to get their act together.
Judging from ThinFilm's history, this will be 'vaporware' never to materialise in any quantity to speak of. This company always got a breakthrough in sales 'just about the corner'... playing cards for kids and other printable memory stuff... never sold anything. Their press releases have been about receiving (buy yourself) technology prizes et cetera. The company is something of a running joke on the stock market and so is their stock price.
German solar-energy costs are four times that of an expensive new nuclear plant. The two new nuclear power plants in Finland produce as much energy as the entire solar energy sector in Germany.
The so-called environmental lobby is killing European industry. Energy prices in countries pushing the renewable fairytale are skyrocketing compared to that of countries with more sane energy policies.
It's difficult to take seriously Schmidt's religious global warming fever when he together with the two other Google execs own and use 8 private jets between them(2011). Sure, the carbon emissions are offset through various 'schemes' (real or fradulent).
If Schmidt really, I a mean really, believed AWG to be an End of The World deal, wouldn't the very same Schmidt stop burning huge amounts of jet fuel zipping around the world (and additionally pay for further carbon capture initiatives)?
It is 'do as I say, and not as I do' time again.
