    Ahh, the company you love to hate, Google, is one of the few who is actually trying to balance the law and user trust. The ISP results shouldn't be surprising to anyone. They've been involved with government programs from the get go and probably have iron-clad STFU contracts, not to mention their immunity from lawsuits for cooperating. Amazon is a little surprising, I would have expected them to require a warrant at least.

    Long before the PRISM exposure, the trust system was compromised by hackers signing their own certificates, by websites with poorly implemented security like twitter. That whole account/password fiasco wasn't just limited to them. Quite a few companies over the years have proven they can not reliability store and protect user information. If the people without a warrant can steal it, what hope do we have of a company saying no to the government and winning? Either they force their way in or they milk exploits as long as possible.

    Users have our back. I wait for the day computer drives are all silent, fast, big, and always on. Users will be a decentralized network, and host all of the internet everywhere.
