They are cops, not IT security gurus. I mean, I had a job working with a branch of state police where the Shift head told me after being reported for the 5th time setting up his laptop to automatically log him in (getting around the windows policies because we had to give him admin access) that people who are going to break in his car will most likely steal the shotgun that is bolted and locked into the floor than the laptop sitting on the front seat booted up and running.
Yeah...that happened. Another one also wanted me to sign a contract that I wouldn't steal any of his pirated software.
Re: Re: Well, clearly not an authorized connection
Where I do agree with this to a point, there is still the understanding that an open connection is not a secure connection and you take the responsibility yourself when connecting to an open connection to encrypt your "tunnel" through it because by nature, its insecure. This means, the person with the open WiFi has the right to police their Wifi as they see fit, even if it means letting the police onto it with a specific intention. The police used that to get a warrant to search the house. They didn't use that and say "OH LOOK ITS THAT GUY!" without getting proper evidence. Though with lack of how they got the search warrant the first time I do not know so I can't comment.
Thats what I was thinking. The owners allowed access to their wireless access, but, even windows warns you that the data you are transmitting over the unsecured network is vulnerable to people seeing what you are doing.
Warranties are usually through the manufacturer and not Newegg. Unless you are talking the extended warranties and then that would be NewEgg and even then I have not had an issue getting something replaced even if it was something I screwed up on.
My self, I have done near that much business with them. With the company I currently work for, our business account has spent nearly $120k this year alone and we are ramping out a pushout of new hardware and will be ordering Monitors, keyboards, mice, and adapters through them, currently the price is around 30k. My boss and I are happy with them and have each ordered shirts from them.
