Bill to give Obama emergency Control of Internet

neonprimetime neonprimetime writes  |  more than 4 years ago

neonprimetime (528653) writes "Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency."

neonprimetime (528653) writes "MSNBC is running a well written article listing many privacy intrusions that the general public just doesn't seem to care about. "Perhaps it's naïve in these dangerous times to believe you can keep secrets anymore — your travels, your e-mail, your purchasing history us readily available to law enforcement officials and others. But everyone has secrets they don't want everyone else to know, and it's never too late to begin a discussion about how Americans' right to privacy can be protected.""

They also look pretty sweat compared to most military grade laptops. They have tremendous battery life, working for eight to 10 hours on a charge. They'll ship in October."

neonprimetime (528653) writes "President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while suggesting the U.N. Security Council would take no action against Iran, challenged President Bush to a debate Tuesday. The White House quickly rejected the idea. Imagine though the thought of a live televised debate between the two? It would easily be the most interesting debate the world has ever seen, and it would most likely also be the most watched debate in history too!"
