Interesting approach to too many devices

Excellent point and I wonder what else can be taxed, since we are taxed for our homes, our food, our health, our businesses and our transport already. Maybe a birth tax? Or a breathing tax?

Operating systems and browsers
The service does not work properly with Macs or other Unix-based systems even though you may be able to input information.

You are likely to have problems if you use Internet Explorer 7, 8, 9 and 10, Windows Vista or a smartphone. Clearing temporary internet files may help but you may wish to claim in another way.

There is also a high risk that if you use browsers not listed below, including Chrome, Safari or Firefox, the service will not display all the questions you need to answer. This is likely to prevent you from successfully completing or submitting the form. You may wish to claim in another way.

Superb article about the importance, and logicality, of protecting privacy.
 
This is the best piece about privacy that I've read in a long time!  If it doesn't change how you think about the privacy issue, I'll be surprised.  It opens:

"Many governments (including our own, here in the US) would have its citizens believe that privacy is a switch (that is, you either reasonably expect it, or you don’t). This has been demonstrated in many legal tests, and abused in many circumstances ranging from spying on electronic mail, to drones in our airspace monitoring the movements of private citizens. But privacy doesn’t work like a switch – at least it shouldn’t for a country that recognizes that privacy is an inherent right. In fact, privacy, like other components to security, works in layers..."
