So, if I'm hearing this right, the government told sprint it must provide wiretaps, sprint needed to make changes to it's network in order to comply, govt said they had to do this out of pocket at gunpoint, and now they are getting in trouble for sneakily charging the govt for it anyway.. sound about right?
Is this is why apple, microsoft, and every gaming company can't use patents and copyright to tie hardware and software together and sell licenses to allow people to make stuff for their hardware? Or is that different?
Yeah it's resident not home owner. The issue is that there have been a couple decisions before, one that if only one resident is there and they give permission, it's fine, but if both are there and one gives permission and the other refuses it's not fine. This case is where the one guy refused a search previously, but was no longer there and the other resident, being the only one home at the time, allowed the search.
increasing security is a completely separate thing, which is measurable only by results in a private company like Google. Increasing the number of passwords you keep track of passwords only gives the perception of security. Using the same password for multiple accounts is not at all the same thing as using the same account for multiple things.
Well, thats why god gave us the gift of choosing which services we patronize I guess :) If there are more than the two of you, maybe it will be enough to support some service that doesn't use single sign on and caters to the crowd that loves to fiddle with passwords.
I don't know if I would call his girlfriend an asshole for not protecting her boyfriend who beats her up in this particular case, but yeah, they have to have permission to search your place from someone who lives there. I would have naturally assumed they could search the place under these conditions.
They need to whoever is actually residing at the place tell them they can search your shared place. It's pretty ridiculous to say that an abused girlfriend doesn't have the authority to let the cops into her house her boyfriend said he doesn't want her to let them in.
