Re: No, it's not settled

This is the Register comments section, no the Daily Mails.

If you bought a dildo in Denver, the government must legally be told


Remember folks

If your doing nothing wrong then you have nothing to worry about... have you.

Ordinary punters will get squat from smart meters, reckons report



It's not the spy (sorry, smart) meters that I don't trust, it's the people reading them.

TeamViewer denies hack after PCs hijacked, PayPal accounts drained

Diet world!

Twice the gravity! twice the workout! Would be a stone cold killer lugging the paragliding kit up the hill though.

Why does the NSA's boss care so much about backdoors when he can just steal all our encryption keys?
