The title might not be in harmony with the post, but thinking a good title that perfectly matches your post... isn't that easy. Especially for this post.
And it's not like I'm sharing any personal experience, mine is a WinXP machine that wouldn't even pick 7. I'm rather telling what I've read over at THN for the past month or so, so for those of you who've been tuned to it, you can guess what I'm talking about.
Now we've been against surveillance for some time, so I thought of telling about it for those who've not noticed it or read about it.
For those who like to do the research for themselves, here you go. This is the place from where I will post a few relevant links and then close the article, without a signature image or line.
The idea is to be a bit more considerate than that, but since none of the material is mine, that'd be a problem.
And there is nothing that can not be understood in just 1 careless read, so you're better off with only it than with some introductions, which will not be worth our time.
But of course, here I am, ready to respond to anything you may ask that I can!
Not a very good tradeoff, if you ask me. But I prefer complete chaos, total privacy. So it depends on where it lies on your scale, but in general, I wouldn't recommend it for non-whitehat activities.
These were just some of the articles, but the internal linking should point you to more.
