The Executive Order That Led To Mass Spying, As Told By NSA Alumni

master5o1 Re:Need a big leak (180 comments)

If it's just Facebook, then it'll be claimed as a Facebook security breach and not anything related to NSA.

You would want some sort of release of data that collates Facebook accounts to traffic offenses and something to do with cellphone data.

Comcast Tells Government That Its Data Caps Aren't Actually "Data Caps"

master5o1 Re:I get it. (341 comments)

Oh yeah, it is closer to 15 years ago. This is in 2001. ADSL wasn't common enough in New Zealand until about 2004.

Comcast Tells Government That Its Data Caps Aren't Actually "Data Caps"

master5o1 Re:I get it. (341 comments)

I remember dial up plans that were capped at like, 150 hours of usage. So unlimited time based access isn't something I would have thought of as weird about ten years ago.

ADSL came along and it shifted from time based restriction to data cap.

Avast Buys 20 Used Phones, Recovers 40,000 Deleted Photos

master5o1 Re:Where the fault lies? (231 comments)

But how many people actually reset phone and reset data? I'd imagine a lot of people simply manually delete their photos and unhook their Internet accounts from the phone. Hardly a wipe.

Outrage as New Zealand Passes Anti-Filesharing Law

master5o1 master5o1 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

master5o1 writes "The Pirate Party of New Zealand is disappointed that the Government used urgency to pass the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill after the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Bill.

"Not only is the urgency process being abused," party secretary Noel Zeng stated, "but our government is also exploiting the people of Christchurch by using their unfortunate situation to pass underhanded legislation.""
