Air Canada continues its race to the top of the list of the world's shittiest airlines by removing life-vests from its regional carrier Jazz, saving money on fuel in the process. In the event of a water crash, passengers can use their seat-cushions to float.

Anonymous has staged demonstrations against Scientology around the world over the last six months as part of Project Chanology, and have demonstrated outside Scientology offices worldwide, often wearing V for Vendetta-style Guy Fawkes masks and other disguises to hide their identities.

Laptops Now Inconvenient For Travel

Saturday, August 2, 2008 by M.

A recent article about travelers laptops may be detained at border makes me think people will now take a whole new approach to data storage.

From online accounts like dot mac and remote access to shared networks to VPN and other anything else you can think of.

The article begins with "Federal agents may take a traveler's laptop or other electronic device to an off-site location for an unspecified period of time...", well that means that company information can be breached, and it's inevitable that someone gets their hands on valuable information and looks to profit from it.

So we might see a resurgence of companies like xdrive (remember them?) or similar.

All of this makes sense, but it's unfortunate to have come to this.
