The largest bummer about these kind of news stories isn’t that our government is routinely wiping their bum-bum with what we consider to be our rights. The largest bummer is that we usually read this stories aghast, and then go back about watching reality shows and eating cheesy products. Myself included.
Like I said before. It is time for me to take my latex fetishes and furry orgy requests to carrier pigeon. The days of the Wild Wild Internet (if it ever truly existed) is certainly fading with stunning alacrity. Today the House passed CISPA by a considerable amount, and now it is up to Barry Obama to strike the son of a bitch down. (But let’s be honest, the death of Internet freedom is being shoved down our throat no matter how much we gag.)
C’mon now, UAE. You a rookie to the whole dumbing down the public thing? Let them have their fun on the Internets. Throw some reality television the public’s way. Get them fat on processed food. The worst thing you can do is outright take away their expression. Bread and circuses, yo.
Here’s a brilliant way to keep your email secure. Don’t fucking use any! Goddamn. Why didn’t I think of that? I imagine it’d be harder to pull off if I was the head of something, though. If I had to run something enormous. Maybe a bloated off-shoot of the military industrial complex. Like, oh, shit, Homeland Security! I mean, I couldn’t possibly stay in contact with people without it. It’d be impossible. Right?
Not cool, man! Iran has blocked Google. One of those moments where I take a momentary reprieve from bemoaning the happenings at home, and praise the U.S for at least letting me look up pictures of Jennifer Lawrence.
Kim Dotcom’s life continues to resemble one of bloated wonderment. The arrogant Internet maestro and source of general amusement was illegally bugged. And the prime minister is admitting it. Tremendous.
Police state, wee! New Orleans was planning on using security drones to police the Super Bowl this next February. It didn’t come to pass, but it is a delicious look into the quiet erosion of homeland freedom and the implementation of such measures. Shh! Go to sleep.
If you weren’t already uncomfortable about the usage of drones over native soil (look it up), or the idea that they can be hacked by college kids (look it up), maybe this will get your attention. Practically unlimited flight time is upon us.
Ain’t this a kick to my friends in the UK. The High Court has come down with the decision to require all UK internet providers to block The Pirate Bay, in an attempt to deprive an entire peoples of free copies of Adobe Photoshop. Thankfully where there’s a will, there’s a way.
The Department of the Navy must have been watching some Dateline. Their latest and greatest way to spend tax payer money is to employ a company to boat a shitload of used gaming consoles overseas, and then till those consoles for user information. Have to get those terrorists’ information from them video game killer-builder machines.
