Only One US City Makes "Top Ten Internet Cities Worldwide" List

hashish I don't get the rating system (240 comments)

For example why would LTE be in a criteria for free and fast? Tokyo for example has great mobile coverage and speed, but not a lot of free wifi. Being a tourist having free wifi is better than no access because your phone cannot be used on the network or the cost is prohibitive. Maybe a better breakdown than what is in the article is required, because getting internet access in London is easier than Toyko; although the speed is not as fast.

PI License May Soon Be Required for Computer Forensics

hashish Re:what's the problem? (282 comments)

No it doesn't. There is nothing stopping a IT security 'investigator' gaining a PI license, what is being proposed is using existing laws to ensure that the IT security invegtigator are controlled in the same way PI are. The existing PI laws were created to weed out the rouge PIs and how would weeding out the rouge IT investigator be a problem?
