Is it amazon that is the problem, or was it diverted by USPS after leaving Amazon. Amazon may not have had anything to do with it. Perhaps packages being sent to her are being inspected waiting on a computer to be ordered and a chance for this to happen. The last time I ordered a computer by mail it came in a box that indicated that it was from a computer company (basically the box the computer was packed in with a shipping label on it). It wouldn't be hard to notice those and divert the shipment.
Who needs the weather channel on Direct TV to warn of dangerous weather. I have had Direct and Dish, and I've never experienced dangerous weather that did not completely kill the signal I was receiving, rendering it impossible to watch the weather channel. Perhaps their argument may work for land based television providers, but I don't see it holding much over my head as far as satellite.
So we have a judge working part time as a judge making $13,000 a year from it and by all accounts seems to be actively disclosing his other job to the mayor and advisory boards, actively trying to prevent conflicts of interest and working another job to support himself while doing the things he enjoys doing.
What's he supposed to do, take kickbacks and become corrupt to make up for the money that being a part time judge doesn't pay?
Then again, maybe the fact he's not is the real issue in this decision.
I still think Google should try an experiment, and for one day/week whatever, any search for an RIAA or MPAA search term should come up empty, with a note explaining what they are doing. Then see how that affects everyone, torrent and legal alike.
Perhaps this is a good time for people to ask for a subpena to prevent Google from deleting the backups. Maybe Steele should have talked to his forensics firm to remind him that he can't delete those backups as well?
