Judge Orders Google to Participate in Spying

Mark Horne's headline offers little room for improvement, except that the order included Yahoo and MSN as well as Google...


Sniff. Memorable names for things like this, or like Prozac Dementia or like Amber Alerts, are sooo unfaaair...Anyway, fair disclosure to all Gentle Readers. (Feels like I post this reminder every week. Do I really?) You are at a Google-based web site. You are using the Internet. Your every keystroke and mouse move may be being recorded in some weirdo's basement in your least favorite foreign country. Feel free to do all kinds of things that wouldn't rate publication in the newspaper because newspaper editors would consider them boring, but don't do anything that you would really want to keep out of the newspaper.
