    I told [my liberal friends] that Obama (who after all is simply a manager not a leader)  would be even worse than Bush.

    1) Once I read a PoV being stated as Rep v Dem or conservative v liberal it's hard to see jow you're going to make a fair and balanced comment.

    2) Worse president than Bush? I think ACA is a huge plus for Obama.

    Cloud services do not exist for the purpose of convenient data fishing expeditions.

    If they want access to personal data they should obtain a court order that demands the user hand over their passwords, like they used to before the internet.

    If he believes he is entitled to have back-end access without the user ever being notified then I wholeheartedly disagree.

    We need to be more proactive rather than reactive in maintaining social order. Denormalising gun ownership would be a good start. Reaffirming the secular nature of society by exposing those who espouse or leverage divisive religious beliefs for personal or political gain would be another good move.

    Totally off topic; but since you went there, I didn't notice you saying anything about denormalizing gun ownership by the state, so the effect of what you said amounts to a nigh religious faith in the state, which makes your comment about secular society all the more ironic. A far better option would be to void all laws that violate self ownership, especially so-called victimless crimes. The majority of those imprisoned are in for nonviolent drug offences, which violate constitutional limits (note that the constitution had to be amended for prohibition on alcohol but never was amended for prohibition of anything else).

    Bumping this thread...

     

    Funny (as in, ironic) quote from the head of the Eff Bee Eye:

    FBI Director to citizens: Let us spy on you | Ars Technica

    Quote:

    “Those charged with protecting our people aren’t always able to access the evidence we need to prosecute crime and prevent terrorism even with lawful authority,” Comey said in the published speech. “We have the legal authority to intercept and access communications and information pursuant to court order, but we often lack the technical ability to do so.”


     

    Basically admits to doing it without lawful authority.

    Okay so this is kind of big. A US District Judge has ruled that while you can't be required to reveal your pass-code to unlock your phone your fingerprint doesn't have the same protection. It's fair game and refusing to provide a fingerprint for unlocking may land you in jail. So what's the difference, why is a pass-code secure from law enforcement but TouchID won't be? The Judge opined that collecting a fingerprint is akin to taking a DNA or handwriting sample while revealing a pass-code is offering personal knowledge.

    Huh.

    Just say you don’t have TouchID enabled. Problem solved. :p

    Good luck with that.

    The judge needs disbarred.
