NSA swats cheeky NSO?
Word is that NSO got cheeky, stealing customers/victims from traditional spy services. So Amnesty (CIA controlled) leaked NSO capers to keep NSA king of the hill. The Israelis must kow-tow to the master, not compete.

Sounds like you assume only one person/group builds all these rebellious distros.That would waste time and energy. But it's not so. At most, a few people/groups build/maintain a couple of aspects. eg Desktops, Browsers, Tools, Multimedia, etc. And again, you're free to choose. I stick with Kubuntu - no big surprises and mostly pleasant. You don't have to try every distro.
Advertising your means of capture ruins it. The crims, and there is an infinite supply of them, will switch to another method, and the cops will *follow* as usual. Well, it keeps the boys busy.
Better idea, legalize all "drugs" (as in Portugal), as we already do with alcohol and tobacco, and make the serious ones prescription only.
The drug trade collapses, prices crash, lives are saved, and the cops can get more exercise beating up protesters. Win-win.
Mangled definitions and merging of separate terms, eg hacking - cracking = "hacking" has become common due to semi-literate folk broadcasting their errors over the Net and TV. I used to teach TESOL to foreign students, and to boost their confidence showed them egregious mistakes made even by native speakers. Nevertheless, as Canute showed, you cannot hold back the tide.
Anyone ask Huawei about glue, repairs, parts? The Chinese want to sell stuff, gain market share. How? Hi-Qal, repairable (keep customers for next upgrade), stuff that works. iFixit are slack. In Bangkok, we fix Huawei gear easily. Of course it helps if you speak Chinese. So learn it...
How does one research an unexpected pandemic that will kill economies? Allowing their game started back in 2018 with fund raising, Covid19 was the "asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs"....Oh why didn't they hide. Yeah, or hold their breath -- for 20 years.
Granted, not a world shaking idea, but the pandemic has killed off everything.
Thailand has more laws than Hamurabi. But Thais only obey the ones they like, while the cops are watching. They rest, they don't bother. Also, cops here barker louder than they bite. A law here is a warning or suggestion. You interpret it according to the situation. Jai yen-yen (Take it easy)
Microsoft+Security=Oxymoron. The "Russian hacks" of the US 2016 election servers, etc, was an inside job, clearly explained by former NSA boss Bill Binney. Frankly, since the Russians and Chinese already know the US has only one real party, why bother to sway either puppet? Better to follow the money to find the fiends.
No Problem. The phone is built for "A" market, not "THE" market. Samsung 20 yada yada buyers don't own glue guns, sticky tape and live in Mummy's spare room. They don't care about repairs or replacements - it's in their job contract. Stop this juvenile whining. Buy the phone that fits your purpose and pocket. Uggh, kids these days...
