Sonys PlayStation 4 Will Launch This Holiday Season For $399, $100 Less Than Xbo ... -- Following up on their oddly detail-light press conference a few months back , Sony used their E3 press conference this evening to finally disclose a bunch of important details: the price, a launch window, and, at long last, what the PlayStation 4 will look like. Sony says that the PS4 will have no restrictions on used games, and that no PS4 game will require online authentication.

Schneier on Security: Government Secrets and the Need for Whistle-blowers -- Senators, house members, the President all saying there are strict controls when security people know -- there is no way they can know that. In the short run, you might get away with stuff, but in the long run, they *will* catch you, and Snowden of all people should be quite aware of how much surveillance there is. The reason for this is that the purpose is political control, and if you know that you are going to be monitored online, then you will change your actions and use much more inefficient mechanisms of communication. Yes if the "bad people" know about it, they will attempt to circumvent the system, but if you've thought things through, then when people try to circumvent the system, you will have met your objectives anyway. What ends up happening is that you have bureaucracies that exist for collecting information for the sake of collecting information, and the fact that this information turns out to be useless and that the people collecting them are incompetent tends to be forgotten. (Hence the name "public servant.") Agents of the US government in particular swear an oath to uphold the Constitution...a document whose primary purpose is to restrain and limit what government can do.
