And now we get to the ...

The smell of excrement is strong on this from Boeing.

"My past work on encryption and online privacy is well documented, and so is my disapproval of the Trump administration and my history of significant campaign contributions to Democratic candidates," Gal noted. "I wonder whether these CBP [Customs and Border Patrol] programs led to me being targeted."
Number  is what got him.
Numbers  and  are pure BS based on his political biases. This sort of thing has been documented as going on pre-Trump.
Anything within 100 miles of the border is a Constitution-free zone.
Under 8 U.S.C. § 1357(a)(3), CBP officers have the right to stop and conduct warrantless searches on
vessels, trains, aircraft, or other vehicles anywhere within “a reasonable distance from any external
boundary of the United States.” Regulations define this “reasonable distance” as 100 air miles from any
external boundary of the U.S., including coastal boundaries, unless an agency official sets a shorter
They can also enter private property without a warrant (excepting dwellings) within 25 miles
of any border.
I just watched a show which was looking at the world's biggest container freight ship and part of it's maiden voyage was through the Suez Canal. It had only a couple of feet to spare across the canal width. Imagine tampering with a ship like that as it's going through the canal - the canal would have damage and would have to be closed.
And the article body didn't bother to clear it up.
What the IRS actually said is  that they've already taken steps on their own and that people should assume their information is already in the hands of criminals and act accordingly.
Number two is actually common sense. People should be monitoring their own data directly or through a monitoring company. The days where people could go for years without bothering to check their credit reporting data are over, and not just because criminals might get/have it.
"I didn't think it worth the risk of giving them more personal information than they already had."
They probably had every bit of that information anyway. You'd be amazed at how much they know about you. It's probably up there with what the NSA has.
NSA here : Not quite, but close.
"The best way to swing an election in the US is to simply remove people from the voting rolls based on ethnicity and voting history"
Conversely you can leave names on the rolls of the deceased and people who moved away. The first election after my father died I found out, since we shared the same name, that someone had voted as him. I notified the poll workers that ballot should be voided as my father was deceased.
It was common when I was in college in the 90s for both the Democrat and the Republican party people to tell to college students they could vote at both their home address and at their college address.
What they always left out was that only applied to local elections. National level the students had to pick one.
You are way too optimistic about users actually paying attention, much less heeding you.
Several years ago I had the (dis)pleasure of fixing a machine where the user admitted he deliberately opened an emailed virus because he was curious to see what it would do and didn't want to mess up his personal PC to find out.
Not just browser based apps.
A metric ton of vendors deliberately wrote, and continue to write, code using undocumented APIs and such. When MS or someone else (cough Java cough) comes along and patches/updates removing those undocumented APIs the code vendors refuse to update it because it would mean either degrading or removing functionality the customers have come to expect.
Dear Reg Team,
Please keep your politics out of a site that is meant to be about IT. If you are going to get all butt-hurt over it realize that people have been calling for Comey's firing for a LOOOOOOONG time.
here is a tweet with many of the clips edited together:
This is Schumer talking about how scared he is and "Muh Russians" etc:
This is MSNBC upset about it 10 days before the election:
Bernie Says he should step down:
Democrats lash out at Comey from Fox News:
Harry Reid saying Comey should be investigated:
James Carville saying Comey worked for the republicans:

KIETH OBERMAN TWEET:
"Meanwhile, Redmond has kicked February's Patch Tuesday into next month: any bug fixes due to be released and installed this week will be rolled into patches released on March 14."
Mine for Win10 home got auto-stuffed onto my machine along with the auto-lose-everything-you're-working-on-reboot early morning yesterday.
You forget the days of Compuspend, America Offline, Stodgity, etc, where yes, you could get *most* content over the interwebs but some was reserved exclusively for a single provider. UPN when it first appeared was only available on AOL. Didn't have AOL? You were told sign up for AOL or shut up.
These carriers are wanting to return to that level of gouging. Net Neutrality, in theory, prevents that. In practice, maybe not so much, but it would be better than nothing....
Don't know about iPhones but the Android ones I've seen with the finger print scanner allow the choice of finger print or code. Given the courts have previously decided a person cannot be forced to divulge a code, and the more recent one of a person can be forced to supply a finger print, I personally would opt solely for the code.
Worst case - Now what was my code? Was it my birthday? My cat's name? My other cat's name? My dog's length and height? .......
