I use Startpage and Duck, Duck , Go. I'll never use Google again. I work in advertising and know they sell every morsel of what they mine from the Google users. Search history, what sites you visit using computer, smartphone and tablets, etc. Pure evil surveillance!

Thank-you for the Edward Snowden interview! Before reading "Q" material, I just viewed him as an NSA hacker, being sheltered by Russia. Now I see that Snowden is becoming more of an "activist"...using his knowledge to help us understand how powerful people designed society to give them immunity from serious punishment.
The U.S. military’s Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program, or JNLWD, is inching closer to a weapon that alters atoms to literally create words from thin air. It’s called the Laser-Induced Plasma Effect and, fingers crossed, they hope to be able to say intelligible words within the next three years.
The weapon is composed of two parts: first, a femtosecond laser, which shoots a burst of focused light for 10−15 seconds, just long enough to rip the electrons from air molecules and create a ball of plasma. (Sometimes called the fourth state of matter, plasma is a field of electrified gas, highly responsive to electromagnetic effects.) The scientists then hit that plasma field with a second nanolaser, tuned to an extremely narrow range of wavelengths. They use that to manipulate the plasma field in a way that can produce light and noise.

Is anyone besides me seriously concerned that there is a TRAITOR in the President's inner-circle?
Yes it is.
I mean any President has a right to make his own decisions about what his advisors tell him.
The leak is awful.
The way the media are reporting it is awful too.

We can choose other platforms and get the F away from them as those come on stream and the new egalitarian freespeech internet GUI comes into focus.
It will happen. May take some time, but it will happen. Just watch.

I'd like to know whether Alexa interprets your commands within the box in your home or whether your recorded voice goes "back to base" over the web?
