Remember PGP and Zimmerman, and having to publish via another country. America needs to learn that once the technogenie is out of the bottle it aint going back in.

Not matter the radar cross-section, faked emissions or not, surely today's missiles have enough cpu capability for some bright spark of a programmer to give them the ability to detect the difference between a baked bean tine sized canister falling on a gravity driven parabolic trajectory and a fighter-jet thrusting away on afterburners.

It is all in how you read/understand the statements
Not one of the ebooks on my "Nook Simple Touch /w Glowlight" came from the B&N Store, well technically they aren't on it, they are on the good old plugin SD-Card.
Best thing about the Nook was it's super cheap price (reduced to £30-40 this time last year)
Worst thing, its swipe to wake up is attrocious, takes dozens of attempts.
After the initial enthusiasm of having that touchy feely "touch" waned I went back to my old reliable Aluretek., 5 years now and still going strong. Buy ebooks from anywhere, using desktop pc, use good Calibre to maintain my library and to strip off the DRM to let me read them on any device.

So go put your tinfoil hat back on, right underneath that dunce cap, and sit in the corner like a good little fool."
Much as I detest the idea of even seeming to be applauding macroshaft et al
That definitely deserves an upvote :¬)
The Nook Simple Touch Glowlight does seem very well made for the now much reduced price. However it suffers from :
1) The slide to unlock just fails a lot of the time, i've never had a first time swipe to unlock work, and swiping double digit times does not a make for a pleasant user experience. You can't even disable it going into lock mode.
2) Too much B&N lock-in I can buy ebooks from any vendor and put them onto the sd-card, so why wont they let you use a minimal web browser to connect to other stores. The B&N store is horrible.
3) No landscape mode. and lots of other niggles, eg poor filehandling, no renaming of books
Even my old Aluretek is a much better reader
Why is there not a link to the "Advanced Search" from the "Home Page" ?
I've been using the so called Advanced page for years now. It usually manages to give very relevant answers in the first page, but tonnes of cruft in subsequent pages. It's worst fault is that it doesnt always obey the "MUST HAVE ALL OF THESE KEYWORDS"
I guess Google's philosophy is bung the searcher more results, cause the more results we give the greater the chance they'll click on a page (that page will have one of our advert banners too)
Are we really surprised?
Whitehall Mandarin's are probably aware that 'small biz' cannot provide them with the level of corporate entertainment budget -- err bribes/incentives/whatever you call it that 'BIG BIZ' can and usually does splash out, and that the Mandarins have come to expect as the norm.
Farcebook just escalated things.
Next time a bugfinder finds a bug they wont report it until they have a second and more deadly bug with which to backhand volley the "we wont pay the bounty/we will suspend your account" attitude. The backhand volley being publically reported in as many forums as possible and resulting in complete pawnage / outage.
Will Zuck fire the security teams, or the people that didnt authorise bounty payment
