Skype, Child Safety & the Worse Case Scenario Mentality

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs really quite sad when you think about what kids are 
| missing because of this âworst case scenarioâ mentality.  
| In this particular case, these kids missed out on the 
| opportunity to potentially hear from an innovative 
| author of popular kidsâ puzzle books (Eric Berlin, 
| author of The Puzzling World of Winston Breen.)  Thatâs 
| troubling enough.  But just think what other interesting 
| people or topics these and other kids may never get to 
| experience because of this mentality.


State's top court OK's use of secret GPS tracking devices

,----[ Quote ]
| For the first time, the state's highest court ruled 
| today that the state Declaration of Rights allows police 
| to break into a suspectâs car to secretly install GPS 
| tracking devices, provided they have a warrant before 
| they act.


JUSTICE Act: a bill to restore the Bill of Rights to America

,----[ Quote ]
| The JUSTICE Act would renew two of the three expiring 
| PATRIOT provisions, PATRIOT sections 206 (John Doe 
| roving wiretaps) and 215 (FISA orders for any tangible 
| thing), but would also add strong new checks and 
| balances to those provisions and to the PATRIOT Act in 
| general, especially those provisions dealing with the 
| government's authority to issue National Security 
| Letters. If passed, the bill would also establish 
| critically important protections for Americans against 
| surveillance authorized under the FAA.


Serves her right

,----[ Quote ]
| Baroness Patricia Scotland broke the law when she 
| employed a woman who, it turns out, was not legally 
| entitled to work in Britain. A law she should know 
| about: not just because she was one of the youngest ever 
| QCs, nor because now, as Attorney General, she is the 
| government's own in-house lawyer, but because she was a 
| minister in the Home Office when the law was passed.



kype Trojan targets Windows; Linux and Apple unaffected

,----[ Quote ]
| A programmer who wrote a Trojan that allows third parties to listen to Skype
| calls has released the code so that computer security firms can develop
| countermeasures.
