Impressive screen.  Are these screens on any smaller models?

Great video,  It would be awesome if you could splice in some testimony from the Senate hearings.

Rand Paul, do you think the 4th amendment applies to my Visa statements?

He's the brightest beacon of hope we have for a Commander and Chief who would seek to revive and defend our Constitutional rights.

The packet capture shown in these new NSA slides shows internal database replication traffic for the anti-hacking system I worked on for over two years. Specifically, it shows a database recording a user login as part of this system:

Recently +Brandon Downey, a colleague of mine on the Google security team, said (after the usual disclaimers about being personal opinions and not speaking for the firm which I repeat here) - "fuck these guys":

I now join him in issuing a giant Fuck You to the people who made these slides. I am not American, I am a Brit, but it's no different - GCHQ turns out to be even worse than the NSA.

We designed this system to keep criminals out. There's no ambiguity here. The warrant system with skeptical judges, paths for appeal, and rules of evidence was built from centuries of hard won experience. When it works, it represents as good a balance as we've got between the need to restrain the state and the need to keep crime in check. Bypassing that system is illegal for a good reason.

Unfortunately we live in a world where all too often, laws are for the little people. Nobody at GCHQ or the NSA will ever stand before a judge and answer for this industrial-scale subversion of the judicial process. In the absence of working law enforcement,  we therefore do what internet engineers have always done - build more secure software. The traffic shown in the slides below is now all encrypted and the work the NSA/GCHQ staff did on understanding it, ruined.

Thank you Edward Snowden. For me personally, this is the most interesting revelation all summer.

I'm in Washington, DC, this week talking about the NSA and our 4th Amendment rights -- and to speak at a "Stop Watching Us" rally Saturday. An interview Thursday with RT America:

I highly recommend their taco salads. It comes with fresh guacamole for free, unlike chipotle.

Fell for the advertising and was thoroughly disappointed with my chicken bowl. Wiltted lettuce, soggy rice and guacamole that tasted like taco bell. Never coming back.

The chicken club is awesome. This place is definitely on my list of places to stop when driving to Tahoe. Looking forward to trying the bbq next.
