Brian, thank you for taking the time to contact us. We do not have any plans to do so at this time, but keep your eye out. If we have enough demand for that, then it will definitely come into consideration.

Gotta hand it to the FBI. Take their proposal of a completely custom system build that would circumvent various protections that are designed to keep people away from your information, and consider it on purely technical matters. It's simple to explain to technical people, and it's simple to explain to people that are not that well-versed in technology.

But consider this. There is no such thing as a safe-guarded backdoor. Do you really believe that once one government agency gets their hands on such a system build, it will only be used to help the "good guys"? If you are, I'd love to live in the fantasy world you're inhabiting.

In the real world that the rest of us live in, this will be nothing short of a disaster. This custom build will get shared between various government agencies and branches, with an absolute guarantee of two things happening. First, it will get to an agency that is solely overseen by secret courts that rubberstamp pretty much every request. Second, it will get into the hands of general public, sooner rather than later - through social-engineered hacking or another Snowden-like act of political activism.

And then there's another absolute guarantee. Let's for a minute say that if you're a law-abiding US citizen, then the US government is good guys. Then there are other governments who are our allies, which makes them good guys by proxy, and there are other governments which are our enemies which makes them bad guys.

What is going to stop other governments from demanding access to the same special system build? How many countries can a multi-national corporation withdraw their business from before it has no more places to do business in? How do you as a supporter of lawful information "extraction" decide on which laws you agree with and which step over "the line" that separates the good guys from the bad guys?

There's not a single line in Tim Cook's letter that is a gratuitous exaggeration of the dangers that lie ahead. I've spent the first twenty years of my life living in the communist USSR, where it was pretty safe to assume that the state had the capabilities and the means to do mass surveillance of anybody and everybody.

How does the self-aggrandizing beacon of democracy turn into the omnipresent surveillance state? Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly (in the mighty words of Ernest Hemingway). Just don't tell your kids that you didn't see it coming.

This upsets me to no end! As the father of an autistic child, I couldn't possibly imagine my sons behavioral therapist being shot or even the potential for my son to be shot because of some ignorant police officer. Where in the fuck are the offices brains? I am just speechless.

Couldn't pass up sharing this today. Excellent words to live by.
 
THIS is PATRIOTISM! THIS is a 4th of July message I can support. Thank you John Cena and the +WWE for a message void of false bravado and empty, divisive nationalism that isn't actually "national."

It's funny (and sad) when some of the most powerful messages about freedom, ethics and morality come from comedians and sports entertainment. Oh, what times we live in.

just got a nexus 6p. trying to set it up without a sim card first. I can connect to my home wifi. Problem is when I hit "next", I get "cant connect to the internet". The same thing happened on my wifes 6p. Is there something about having the sim card out on the initial start up that is causing this?

I setup my 6p without the sim card and used it for a month before activating the sim card. No problems except the one you mentioned, but restarting the router fixed it

Amenities and service you have come to expect from Marriott. Courteous staff, clean facilities, and pretty good location. Very close to the convention center and warehouse district. Would stay here again.

The accommodations are fairly usual for a hotel. Fairly clean and everything works. My reason for three stars is that it took the courtesy shuttle 45 minutes to pick me up from dinner within the three mile radius. I could have walked back in the time it took to pick me up.

The hotel offers a decent location. It's right across the street from the beach. Lots of food and shops nearby. It has a couple shops on the first floor AMD an ABC store. Only a couple minute walk from all of the major shopping centers. The rooms are nice. Good views. It is at the South East end of the main street which is somewhat quieter end. All in all a good spot to vacation.

Generous serving size. I got the medium bowl which allows you to choose from 3 different proteins. Food was great. Fish was fresh. Kind of a small place. Not really family friendly seating unless you can grab one of the tables outside. Parking is tough with so many small food places sharing this lot. All in all a good spot.

Used Cindy's for the second time today. Great service. Jumper was immaculate, tables and chairs were clean, and delivery was early. Delivery guys were courteous. Would use this service again.
