Tech at Night: Commissioner O’Rielly makes a great point on reform. Tor users point out the mote in Apple’s eye.
FCC Commissioner Mike O’Rielly makes a great point about how to approach FCC and Communications Act reform. Assume regulators will abuse it and write defensively.
Yet another Tor child pornography ring has been caught, so why exactly should I cry if Tor users are claiming Apple is ignoring problems? These guys are ignoring the critical problem of serious crimes on their network, after all.
WhatsApp, Internet messaging service popular with kids, is facing stupid Snowden-based propaganda against it having been bought by Facebook. Gee, and WhatsApp was founded by a Ukrainian. I wonder who could possibly have an anti-Ukrainian agenda and be pulling the strings here to spin NSA-Facebook-Whatsapp conspiracy theories. Could it be, hmm, I don’t know, PUTIN? After all, it’s going to be a long time before we grasp the damage Snowden did to us by turning traitor.
