Most of the frauds have seemed pretty harmless, but there is potential here for serious damage too, I'd like to know what some of those are.

An Overview of the Do Not Track Debate

TheGreatDuwanee An Expanding Internet (108 comments)

As I remember it, things were expanding quite quickly even before every little click was tracked. I imagine things might slow down with Do-Not-Track, but they will keep growing.

S. Carolina Supreme Court: Leaving Email In the Cloud Isn't Electronic Storage

TheGreatDuwanee Congressional Ineptitude on the subject? (112 comments)

"...yet another reason why the Supreme Court (and/or Congress) should take up the issue of the Stored Communications Act."

I agree that this should be taken up and clarified in law, I'm just not so sure Congress is up to doing it right.

Is my skepticism showing through??

Ask Slashdot: What To Do With Spammers You Know?

TheGreatDuwanee Re:My favorite response (333 comments)

When I have been able to get a specific mailing address I have been successful in getting this method to work before, it does take persistence and the correct wording (I've found the phrase "any further emails means you accept my billing rates and practices" or something similar works pretty good).

I've used this practice to get unwanted 'free' local newspapers discontinued as well.

Apple Targeting Business World for the iPhone

TheGreatDuwanee Change wireless provider? Why? (338 comments)

I may be mistaken in this because I'm a little out of date on the topic, but...

If Apple wants iPhone to become a 'standard business tool' ... it seems like they would open the phone up to working on other networks other than AT&T.

Why would I as a business user switch to AT&T (as opposed to paying to have my iPhone hacked and potentially bricked) just for the latest toy?
