In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

What Services?

The most popular services are owned by American corporations, especially Google and Facebook. Even Estonian Skype was sold to them. As I felt, that Google had betrayed me, I switched from GMail to Neomailbox recently, but that doesn't help much, as most of my contacts have either GMail or Hotmail address and governments eavesdrop network traffic anyway.

Checkmate in other words...
