Time to take a page from terrorists book and create some sort of cells for databases? The whole database wouldn't be compromised just because a part of it was. Now how the heck you would go around building a database like that I'll leave as an exercise for the reader :)
I suddenly got the feeling that the weapon of mass destruction Sadam possessed Was simply one lonely dvd press Copying movies and shouting "Arr arr!" The US response was "Let's go to war!" "These accusations are most dire" "And Sony our army just has hired" "So down with the despot and freedom for all" "And another blockbuster in the movie hall!"
These two needs to put on trial for crimes against humanity. Who gives a flying fuck if this was legal in the US and approved by the president? In fact every part of the chain that made this possible should be put on trial. If "I was only following orders" is not a valid defence then "We were following the law" shouldn't be either.
ISIS has been know to eat bread. But they don't eat it the way we do. They do it support terrorism! We now need to start watching all bakeries! We also need to taste all the pastries in case of terrorism!
My guess is that it will take an incident lite Ferguson but with a white boy. When that happens and the white middle class learns that they aren't safe all hell will break lose.

"We strongly believe that original innovation/../"

"Play by my rules or I'm taking my ball and goes home"
Not all phones in Europe is sold unlocked. This for instance: http://www.katshing.se/mobiler/samsung/samsung_galaxy_siii_4g-16474_30101
But they are usually locked for a limited time and the operators have to supply unlocking.
My galaxy s3 isn't locked but I do have a contract with an operator where I pay an raised monthly subscription for 24 months. After 18 months I could renew it if I wanted to. For that I pay 300 SEK per month which comes out to around $46. For that I get the phone, $23 worth of call minutes at 11 cents per minute, 1000 sms/month and 1 Mbit/s with no data cap.
