U.S. District Judge: Forced Decryption of Hard Drives Violates Fifth Amendment

onealone What if this wasn't a child porn case... (417 comments)

What if the defendant was a journalist accused of some sort of snooping/hacking offence. The police have evidence suggesting that proof of guilt may reside on the laptop, but the journalist refuses to unlock it because it contains other secrets that may or may not be even related to this case: - Their list of sources, for example, or evidence to do with other stories that have yet to be published. When you remove the child porn aspect, it seems pretty unreasonable to force the defendant to unlock the data.

onealone Meh... old phones are better. (349 comments)

I still use a Nokia 6310 most of the time. Sure, it doesn't have any internet connectivity, but it's a better phone than anything being sold today, the battery lasts for a week, I can drop it without it breaking, and no one's going to steal it. There's certainly no shame involved. Quite the opposite in fact. When people are boasting about their new phones and I pull my old Nokia out the reaction is: "Wow! I used to have one of those. Now that was a good phone!"
