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.

You REALLY love teh google, huh Thom?

What you are doing is the classic "X is bad but Y is worse" argument that doesn't change the fact that X IS BAD,mmmkay? Just because the US government, who unless your last name is Gates or Dell you aren't gonna change, is doing something bad does NOT mean that I shouldn't choose not to do business with a company that wants to give the NSA a run for its money.

But what amazes me is that with this it will give those in power 100% control of anybody that runs for any office, how is that? You can't find anybody under 50 that doesn't have some skeleton that if you had a recording of every single thing they had ever done online. Do they have a fetish that isn't the red blooded big boob blonde? Have their ever gotten a clickjacker bug? because i can tell you that a LOT of those will send the PC to adult topsites, many of which have illegal underage images.

Basically what they have done is made the Ayn Rand comment about criminals 100% real, because with a record of everything that every person has done there won't be a single person that can't be ruined if someone with access so chose. I can just imagine what kind of monster they would be able to paint me as, considering how many infected PCs I've had to deal with.
