Editorial Now that everything is moving to the cloud internet, you might think that data loss is a thing of the past. Sadly, as the past few months have taught us, this actually isn't true; we first had the Microsoft/Danger disaster, and now we have Palm and Sprint facing a class-action lawsuit over data loss for webOS phones. All this raises the question: how safe is it to store your precious data on the internet, and do you really trust the internet?

He probably lives in a small town, where everybody knows everything about each other. Nothing wrong with that; not everyone has a corpse rotting in their cupboard.

Not to mention that privacy is basic principle of modern democracy. My dull ridiculous life is still my life. I don't like to share my browser history, DNS traffic, e-mails, the music I listen, my online shopping, IRC conversations, etc. without my explicit consent. Simply because it is my life and my data.

We might as well get rid of such ridiculous laws that prevent private parties from opening normal snail mail. And so on.

Basically the same BS argument used in war against terror and whatnot.
