Tech at Night: Apple negotiates while Pandora lobbies. Chinese attacks continues.
You know what happens when you use other people’s email services, such as Yahoo or Google? You become especially vulnerable to attacks on your privacy, including the ability of the government to search your email provider’s computers. The ECPA is a red herring, really. Sure, we an tweak it, but when you use somebody else’s computer, I’m not sure you should have much of an expectation of privacy.
Hey, look: While Pandora spends money lobbying to try to change the law to rig the system, Apple is negotiating to get what it wants for Internet radio like a free market participant should.
Pass CISPA. We need a public-private clearinghouse to ready against foreign attacks. Ignore the gangs that (rightly) fear their own criminal activities will be diminished, fearing it so much they attacked Mike Rogers.
