Phil Zimmerman Launching Secure "Blackphone"

aissixtir Re:How Can They Guarantee Privacy? (156 comments)

How can they not when they can get so many clients with a nice name (blackphone) and privacy promises (after the latest NSA leaks). The thing is, even if this project is not as privacy-oriented as they try to make it seem, the market is developing towards more privacy and that is good.

Phil Zimmerman Launching Secure "Blackphone"

aissixtir How secure? (156 comments)

Sure it is secure but how secure? We all know no security is perfect, who tested this? Also how can we know that NSA will not ADD a device on postal to search. Is there a feature which disable such option? How much is the expected price? How much will we need to pay for our privacy? Furthermore, can I buy the phone without getting my name registered?

Largest Bitcoin Mining Pool Pledges Not To Execute '51% Attack'

aissixtir Re: trust (351 comments)

Yes sir, that`s why I believe bitcoin will fail sooner or later. I wish I am mistaken but I do believe at some point it will burst into zeros and ones. However, I am sure this will be the future but until something solid and trustful stands behind there is no way. I mean look, even RSA had dirty hands.

EU Copyright Reform: Your Input Is Needed!

aissixtir My suggstion (154 comments)

My suggestion would be to let people use any material without having to worry about copyright as long it is not used commercial. Copyright owners tend to use the fact that they lose a lot of profit from the internet. However, there have been studies showing that because of the internet several things get popular. For example Game of Thrones, it is released in the US, if only the US could see it (in fact only those who paid the subscription in the US) there GoT would not be the success it is right now.

Could an Erasable Internet Kill Google?

aissixtir Google has expanded (210 comments)

That would be right if Google was how it was at the start. However Google is not how it once was as it is no more just a search engine. However, sure the laws in a country can change. That does not stop Google from moving its will-be-"illegal" server in a country where there will be no problem.

Ask Slashdot: How Long Will the Internet Remember Us?

aissixtir Not the right question (126 comments)

I think the question is the wrong question to ask. The right question would be for how long we, the data owners, will allow the internet to store more of our data.

JSTOR an Entitlement For US DoJ's Ortiz & Holder

aissixtir HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE LAW? (287 comments)

It`s not the fault of those who enforce the law. The weight falls on our shoulder because we activily participate into the political arena 1 day every few years to vote for an incompetent guy and then we sit back in front of our laptop watching movies until the next elections. When was the last time you did anything to change something?!? WHEN ?

Why You Can't Build Your Own Smartphone: Patents

aissixtir Re:A bridge too far (179 comments)

I agree with you to a certain degree. If I am right patents in UK at least last for 10 years. In our world 10 years is too long. That`s not simply a reward for the innovator but pretty much the whole world.

why do we need privacy?

aissixtir aissixtir writes  |  about a year and a half ago

aissixtir (2752321) writes "I am starting a new module this semester and it has to do about privacy. Even though I "want" privacy, I do not know why. Do I really care if they know the time I go to the toilet or my interests, or even where I go?
And then do I really care of what you are doing?"

Chromebook'OS: New era for hardware manufacturers ?

aissixtir aissixtir writes  |  about a year and a half ago

aissixtir (2752321) writes "As most of you out there, I was surprised to see a good laptop at the price of $200.Though, it somehow made sense since there was no windows or apple involved.

It seems as if hardware manufacturers try to find alternatives themselves rather than wait for Linux to evolve. What do you think?"
