Kim Dotcom Faces Jail At Bail Hearing

Mistakill Not a fan but come on (166 comments)

As a kiwi, I'm not a fan but this is ridiculous... hes been charged with no New Zealand crime... the search warrant was ruled by a New Zealand judge to be illegal and excessive. He's not exactly an average looking person... he would stand out

Dell's New Alienware Case Goes to Extremes To Prevent Overheating

Mistakill Corsair Air 540 (149 comments)

I bought one of these, and between it and the Corsair H110, i don't even have any case fans on... the case has good ventilation at the top, and front... the case will be a fair bit cheaper than the premium alienware would be charging too

Obama Administration Says the World's Servers Are Ours

Mistakill Shoe on the other foot? (749 comments)

Imagine the outrage the US Govt would show, if say, China insisted Apple or Google share ALL the information they had stored in the US. Before you dismiss this, think about it... a Chinese Judge (lets say the Chinese equivalent of the SCOTUS) issues a warrant (which would be valid under Chinese law) demanding this...

I'm sure there would be an outrage by POTUS, Congress, and everyone else sticking up their hand.

Encryption Keys For Kim Dotcom's Data Can't Be Given To FBI, Court Rules

Mistakill Re:Umm... (149 comments)


He has broken no laws in New Zealand... the NZ Police and the GCSB overreached with their spying and the execution of the search warrant (the warrant was found to be not legal). The US tried to get him extradited, so the Judge asked to see some of the evidence... (presumption of innocence you know), and the US said 'were the US, we want him, hes guilty', so the Judge said prove it. Seeing as the extradition hearing still hasn't been heard in it's entirety, he's still here in NZ.

You can argue luck all you want, but what matters here is New Zealand law, and the opinion of the Judge (btw Kim Dot Com is a New Zealand resident, so is subject to all the rights that kiwi's have)

Auditors Release Verified Repositories of TrueCrypt

Mistakill Re:Truecrypt authors-WARNING: TrueCrypt is not sec (146 comments)

The current train of thought, which may never be verified, is that the authors got a National Security Letter from the NSA (like Lavabit)... If so, pointing people away from it to something like BitLocker may be a way for the NSA to gain easier access to encrypted data

Mistakill Penalties for false claims (58 comments)

Ms. Granick can you say why there is no penalty for false claims (often repeated and obvious false claims) about ownership of content. This seems to be one of the biggest issues of contention, if people were to accept that the DCMA itself is acceptable

Federal Smartphone Kill-Switch Legislation Proposed

Mistakill Re:Just because you can... (173 comments)

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Just like the remote kill switch that was proposed in cars. This is a solution looking for a problem, and more over it's a solution that's ripe for abuse.

Exactly... if there's a switch, it will be exploited... just look at the encryption on Blu-ray or DVD's... or even some of the RSA encryptions... no matter how good the digital lock, it will be broken eventually...

Kim Dotcom Wins Case Against NZ Police

Mistakill Mistakill writes  |  about a year and a half ago

Mistakill (965922) writes "It would seem the case against Kim Dotcom for the NZ Police isnt going well, with Kim Dotcom scoring another victory in his legal battles.

"Police have been told they must search everything they seized from Dotcom and hand back what is not relevant to the US extradition claims."

Justice Helen Winkelmann told police their complaints about the cost and time of the exercise were effectively their own fault for indiscriminately seizing material in the first place.
