Launching 2015: a New Certificate Authority To Encrypt the Entire Web

lillgud Re:quick question (212 comments)

Irrelevant.
The "certificate authority that issues free certificates to any website" can actually be one or many of the CAs that is popular today. This is just a new protocol for the way to get a certificate signed by one of these CAs. So if some CA issues as a cert to the NSA for your domain right now there is nothing here that prevents that CA for doing it when using this new protocol.

Why the Time Is Always Set To 9:41 In Apple Ads

lillgud Re:The right time is 13:37 (109 comments)

9:42 may be good enough for the masses but for the elite only 13:37 will do. [...]

13:37 would be a horrible timestamp to use in US ads. Some people would actually discard the product since it is a 24 hour clock instead of 12 hour AM/PM.

Wiretapping Bill Passes Swedish Parliament, 143 to 138

lillgud Re:I got an idea (326 comments)

No need. FRA will not just monitor email, sms and telephone traffic -- they will also monitor "normal" surfing. This is a much simpler way to (perhaps) trigger some alarms:
