Organized crime tampers with European card swipe devices


What happens to stores or supply chain employees who don't want to cooprate with the scam?

And in a separate and _entirely _coincidental item, if anyone in the target stores or supply chains in these EU countries wants to report the problem, or doesn't want to cooperate, they or their families are without any meaningful legal right or means to defend themselves when the thugs arrive to "convince" them.

Yay for being able to refuse, on principle, to cooperate with a scam and survive the refusal...

Scientists decry Bletchley Park's decline


No surprise with this government

Are we surprised this government has allowed the decline to occur?

It's made up of vicious slinkers who all to happy to see "clever clogs" and their works be "put in their place" (whatever that is)... and who've demonstrated the most utter contempt for those whose bravery and hard work helped keep England free the last time a dictatorial thug siezed power in Europe.

Of course, this lot are quite friendly with the dictator-wannabees in the EU today, so I suppose we can be even less surprised.

RIAA chief calls for copyright filters on PCs


RIAA stalking horse for Big Brother?

I can't believe anyone would be as asinine as the RIAA is being about this, and be allowed to get away with it for so long, if there weren't a hidden agenda somewhere.

Being able to monitor and control content for the supposed purpose of copyright enforcement means being able to monitor and control ALL content.

Next: Word and idea filters right on the desktop. No more "controversial" ideas leaking out into the public Interwebz and tainting The Truth, and troublemakers easily detected and rounded up.

Or perhaps they'll just start putting electric shock circuitry into the keyboards? Maybe those "shocking" laptops were no accident!
