Honestly, this is embarrassing. AT&T is trying to convince me to ditch my Comcast Business service for their U-verse service. Although the price is "guaranteed", it doesn't include the $99 installation fee. Nor does it include the monthly "equipment fee" to use the required AT&T "wi-fi gateway". All of that might be forgivable, if it weren't for one little note in ultra fine print:

"Price for up to 768Kbps service [...]"

You're joking, right? 768Kbps service?! You sendt a letter suggesting that a consumer should pay for 768Kbps service, meanwhile a week earlier FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler proposed raising the definition of "broadband" to a minimum of 25Mbps down and 3Mbps up. Hell, even without his proposal, the current minimum speeds for "broadband" are 4Mbps down and 1Mbps up. Yet you have the nerve to call your service "High Speed Internet"?!?! Wow. That's just pathetic.

Ugh. Damn FCC. I can only hope that this backfires somehow...

U.S. government agencies claim they don't need a warrant to ask for private content—such as Gmail messages, documents, photos and YouTube videos. (Here at Google, we push back.) We urge reform to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to require a warrant for online info, just like for offline. 

If you're in the U.S., sign this petition to the White House today—we need 100,000 signatures to guarantee a response: http://goo.gl/N2C7Uu

Modesto Junior College blocks a student from handing out copies of the US Constitution. On Constitution Day. Lovely.

"I don't trust my government, I don't trust the people who work for my government, and I believe that the evidence suggests that it's irrational to offer such trust."

1. The government lies to you about the extent of its surveillance of you.

2. The government says it needs secrecy, but lies about its secrets and the grounds for keeping them secret.

3. The government says it needs expanded powers to fight terrorism, but lies: in fact it uses expanded "anti-terrorism" powers to advance a variety of domestic agendas.

4. Terrorism is whatever the government says it is.

PJ of Groklaw ends it's 10+ year run thanks to the US government. This is a sad day.

"They tell us that if you send or receive an email from outside the US, it will be read. If it's encrypted, they keep it for five years, presumably in the hopes of tech advancing to be able to decrypt it against your will and without your knowledge. Groklaw has readers all over the world. ... There is now no shield from forced exposure."
