Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

An email provider company located somewhere like Hong Kong with IMAP access for $5 or a month, maybe also packaging it together with a VPN service, or similar could make a heck of a lot of money.


Well, I'm switching over to Runbox ( http://www.runbox.com/ ) myself: they're cheap, they seemingly have good reputation, Norway does, indeed, have some rather sane privacy laws there and they do provide IMAPS et. al. support. Too bad they ain't got no CalDav - or CardDav - support.
