See, thats why I dislike policy at national level. The people have almost no control over its ****** up decisions. Especially if a government, that has 0 clue about the small peoples life, gets their hand on monitoring technology, it will use it sooner or later to look at us all...
Obama said, we cant have 100% security and 100% freedom at the same time, which is correct. But I prefer freedom over security and since both dont necessarily have to contradict each other at the very most, 90% of both is still very, very very good and IT DOESNT NEED A SECURITY DEPARTMENT to manage this for the **** sake! And his excuse is the most amusing part of it. To prevent Te-Te-Te-Terrorism-rism-rism (I love the UT style of dramatic announcments btw). Yeah, right. As if this could stop me from capturing a plane and flying it into buildings - not that I had ever the notion to do so... **** you, Obama! This is called paranoia and it can be medically treaded! Terrorism can NOT be stopped by this, the Boston bombing is a perfect example of it. 9/11 is a good example of it and many more. If you want to kill someone, spying on everyone does not ****** help, it only creates mistrust and divides us even more!
Now I would love to see Google and Facebook to just say no to it. But in that matter I might as well ask Santa Claus to establish a second Christmas delivery in summer for the whole world. I guess they get either payed or forced by law to let the FBI and NSA spying into the servers. And if the terrorists ever heard of something like the "Tor" network, all the effort is doomed to fail anyway, because you cannot encrypt those systems. Just as simple as that.
My greatest fear on it is that it will be used to track down copyright violations. But all they do is creating more of those untrackable network systems like I mentioned above. A really stupid idea!
No. Nonononono. No No No No No No No No.
No one wants it but the government still does it. You call this democracy?
You can plainly see that Microsoft. Poor Microsoft KNOWS they are shooting themselves in the foot. They blocked their post-E3 press conference on the xbox ONE, they have blocked comments on their systems. There is something going on certainly!!! They must have been forced to do this, that is why they are implementing these restrictions because they made this promise to create the most powerful privacy destroying machine known to man.
I implore you to read those articles. All of you. This is down right disgusting.
This is why i stay anonymous on all forms of the internet because I knew this idiocy would be happening.
I'd still tape some paper over the Xbox one kinect camera if I got one. Just saying.
In that sense make sure your mobile phones are off as well, cause they are like bugs. Luckily I dont have such things, but not because of this attitude, but rather because I dont need that electronic garbage.
Yeah, my mobile goes back to an age when they couldn't connect to the internet and the photos you took always look like potatos. I just need a phone on the go. Not a do all everythingmabob.
