digital no rights, you pay more

its seems as time goes on we are loosing our digital rights
or as i call it digital no rights

if you use your employers computer or smartphone they can
and a large majority do monitor what is on the emails and texts
on their computers and phones

yes when you write that your boss is a prick or that you
got drunk last night or that mary lou is messing around with
bobby joe then most employers will read that
you could get reprimanded or fired

so any emails video you watched facebooks you look at
or websites you visit or google searches you do
keep in mind that they may and probably are watching

thats why i never used my work email for anything but work
and used other email accounts for emailing people not
work related

if you are stopped by the police and if they have probable
cause they can confiscate your phone and look at it
you dont have to give them your pass code
but the judge can force you too
of course probable cause is easy to come up with
just talk to a black person or hispanic person or a
young person who looks not clean cut

if you fly into the us the agents can go through your computer or
smartphone without probable cause

apparently in 2011 law enforcement demanded 1.3 million requests
from cellular companies for subscribers information

that doesnt include the requests made on google bing yahoo and
other search companies

heck all they have to do now days is just google it and theyll get
all the information they need

yes 1984 may be here as big brother watches us


clark howard the consumer guru wrote recently that what browser
you use influences what you pay online

searching for a particular brand of tv using the google chrome browser
netted a price of $997 while using internet explorer or firefox the price
was $1399

then on the walmart website for another tv it was $199 using firefox and
$168 on chrome and internet explorer

on some websites those mac user are paying more
sometimes as much as 30% more on hotel rooms and other purchases

then on amazon if you fill your cart and then abandon it at the last minute
sometimes the price quoted next time you look at that item will be cheaper
doesnt matter what browser you are using

so i guess ill do all my shopping using google chrome and will
cancel my amazon orders then come back later and try again
i do that anyway most of the time
