"We received a request from a local law enforcement agency to remove YouTube videos of police brutality, which we did not remove."
For once, Well done Google. Can we have a "slightly less evil than expcted" icon?

...the next day, the boffins recieved letter from the Universe's Safety Camera Partnership demaining a £30 trillion fine, and three points on their science licence. It turns out when people said light was the universal speed limit, it was only the fear of the fine that kept that in check.
Neutrinos: the boy racers of the subatomic world!
Havn't looked back - amazing piece of kit, and I love WebOs. What I think this proves is that tablets will take off, when price/performace reaches the level that the at-a-loss touchpad reached. At the moment they're a preimium device, when they become a commodity, things will change.
...In the past, I always forwarded my laptop traffic over SSH to prevent this. However since I got my tablet, that isn't possible (Although its a HP Touchpad so I could VPN it I suppose) but with the profusion of smartphones and tablets, more people are at risk from this.
"If we interfere, by allowing susceptible members to survive and pass their susceptibility on to their offspring, we are weakening the population as a whole, and building in a reliance to the techniques and technology for survival to the species. Just think what would happen if modern medicines became unavailable. I don't think we would quite go back to the dark ages (after all, we do now know about how infections spread, and can take physical precautions), but it would not be pleasant."
No. Humanity as a whole only survives BECAUSE of it's technology. Try removing the computer, motorised transport or even fire, and see how many people off from that. The loss of ANY major technology would be catastrophic
Having a diverse genetic population is a good thing, even if some of the population are more susceptible to some diseases because of it. Diverse genetics allows a better chance of survivng a new threat.
As I unnderstand it (not having set it up myself), the software encodes the ssh data into ascii, and sends it as a subdomain to a domain you control the DNS for, the response comes from the DNS server in the txt record.
Many of these unsecured-wireless-pay-for-access systems allow the DNS traffic through before blocking the site from loading. Thus tunneling over DNS gets around the paywall. Unfourtunately, this method is not exactly the most efficient, or the uickest!
I may not always see eye-to-eye with Mr. Page on military articals, but when it comes to describing the sheer craziness of DARPA, you win one thousand internets, and I will gladly buy you this beerin exchange just for the amusment you give me with these articals!
...he was. He was considered innocent of not disclosing the password, and then they proved it. So he was guilty. The problem here is not convicting him for a crime they havent proved, it's them criminilising behaviour that *should* be a persons right, i.e not to self-incriminate.
So trident defendants riddle me this: If you state that we *need* a nuclear deterrent, do you also agree that every other nation in the worl should be allowed to buy nukes for the same reason (Or even if we limit it to just every democratic nation)
If yes, fair enough. You're consistent at least, but yours is a world I dont want to live in.
If no, what (apart from blind patriotism) is different about the Uk?
