Not to mention Google at the very least issued a mea culpa. The other two tired to spin things as awesome and positive or simply pretended it didn't exist when caught with pants down. Having ads beside extremist content will be the least problematic issue in companies that are ok in destroying your privacy with stealth super cookies, browsing habits recording and selling, all without any way to opt-out.
If even a huge company like Google is having trouble to enter the market then something is clearly wrong. Of course, the citizens 'representatives' (take the word with a gigantic grain of salt) are being paid to ignore the elephant in the room.
The real question is: what immediate threat to the flight an electronic device content may pose? One that immediately comes to mind is the 'terrorist' using it to activate a bomb in the cargo hold. There are two ways to prevent that. Either you make the cargo hold a Faraday Cage or you screen the bags properly. And bags don't get cancer and stuff so you can xray or whatever the hell out of them.
Examining the digital stuff of passengers does exactly zero to improve aircraft security.
Re: Re: More evidence that we all need duress passwords
It's different. A good forensic exam will show the volume is there. I think what he meant is something like a panic button in form of a password. You type it and the volume will display fake data somehow, trick/fool the one that entered the fake password. I'm not sure how this would be feasible though. Maybe 'decrypt' the volume but pretend the file system is damaged beyond repair?
Consumer outrage will sort it out. Until it doesn't. Because not all outrage in the world prevented things from deteriorating and clowns like Pai spewing foul waste every single time he opens his mouth to talk about important Internet related topics.
Sit tight Netflix, this is going to bite you where it hurts the most: the pockets. Good thing you can survive the bite. But it's going to bleed.
So to have your privacy you'll have to shell some extra money to get a VPN and use protective measures like DNSCrypt from OpenDNS (and their own service on DNS queries). The advertisement industry is out of control.
And honestly, to me all advertising via the Internet has become poison. I avoid clicking ads like the plague and I'm actively using all means to prevent as much tracking and advertising as possible (ublock, Noscript, RequestPolicy, you name it). I actively avoid products that are advertised in ways that are intrusive, targeted. Once this becomes the norm and advertising that way becomes toxic to the companies doing it we will slowly come back to sanity.
If they want war, we the public should give them war. And fund EFF to counter-lobby these morons.
