India is one of the worldâ€™s fastest-growing wireless markets, and it already has an estimated one million BlackBerry users. Some use R.I.M.â€™s consumer e-mail service, which the government said it had no problem with because it can already monitor those messages.
I get pretty irritated with the CyberWar Hysteria sometimes. The logic of alamists goes something like this:
1) â€œOh Noes there are Bad Haxors out there who break into computers!!â€
2) â€œComputers are buggy and have problems and really get hacked!!!â€
4) â€œEXPLOSIONS, MASS DESTRUCTION AND DEATH ARE COMING!!!1!11!â€
It is genuinely hard to find examples of meatspace impacts from online hacking. Most frequently suggested is the power grid: the systems are complex, incredibly creaky, and computer controlled. This may have (but probably didnâ€™t) happen in Brazil.
