We can see on this animations the airplanes commercial flight everyday.

The main today trafic is still in US ans Europe but Eastern countries are growing and pull the aircraft market.

We can see also that during the second part of the night there are far fewer planes flying.

The federal government should be doing this themselves.  A dash board on the number of requests and demographic aggregations of folks caught up in this across all suppliers of data would be a far better solution.

Then again, I also think that the data that the NSA gathers,  uses, and stores for data mining should be anonymized; requiring a warrant to obtain the identity of an anonymous id.

I wanted to add a few more to wired's osx wishlist: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2013/06/fix-osx/?cid=co8661444

More functional notification pane
I'd love for my ichat to be slide away. Let the integrated messages, facetime, etc mentioned in the article show up in notifications. Then let me reply in line in that pane (and see some history). I'd like interaction for some other apps their too. A lot of stuff from my menu bar could go their and be happier (basement design?).

Enhance spotlight
Quick launchers with scripting, hot keys, etc are all the rage. Time to Sherlock this stuff?

Reminders
Add tags and saved searches (as folders on the side). Needs multi-select edit and keyboard shortcuts, gestures, or long taps for changing the associated dates (add a week, add a day, due today, etc). It also needs to support pasting rich content into a description. Let me stick a picture or a link on the task for reference. Heck, give me a description field. Better apple scripting so that spotlight, alfred, safari, etc could quick add a task with associated metadata.

Gestures
Consistency among gestures through App apps. More gesture 'shortcuts' on iOS.

Plug-ability
We really, really need a safe and secure way to add functionality and integrate apps. This is pretty obvious on iOS, but should extend to OSX. For example, adding apps to spotlight on iOS and on OSX such that it could provide more contextually nuanced results. 

Integration
We also really need a simple, secure mechanism for application integration at the OS level. The url syntax on iOS is nice for switching, but is cumbersome for data or activity integration. Given the issues with multiple active apps, a simple OS level store and forward message bus would be nice. Let the source app write a message (JSON?) to a bus with an application identifier. Next time the target application becomes active, it can read and process the messages. The OS would provide guaranteed delivery/persistence, format validation, and security (data analysis, buffer overflow, and a settings app that allows you to turn off/on particular integrations).

Window Manager
 On OSX, its time to Sherlock some of the add on window managers and provide nice ways to size, dock, and layout windows on desktops. We also need for full screen to support multiple monitors.
