Privacy, Security, Encryption "The hacker group LulzSec on Thursday posted information it took from Sony Entertainment and Sony BMG on its site, called the LulzBoat. The information includes about a million usernames and passwords of customers in the U.S., Netherlands and Belgium and is available for download and posted on the group's site. A release posted on LulzSec's page said the group has more, but can't copy all of the information it stole. The group also said none of the information it took from Sony was encrypted."

Cameras are nice in theory, but in practice they don't work so well. IIRC, despite massive video camera deployment in London, they're still talking about around 0.1% extra criminals caught. That's not very efficient, considering how much a video camera costs compared to a well-trained policeman.

Maybe the problem is how difficult it is to recognize a face ?
