FTA: "It says it does not allow the NSA to collect information through a secure portal nor does it put information into a "drop box" for government agents to access. It said it has a team of employees who review every FISA order. "

Trolltastic headline.  Subby's mom should be so careful with her "suitors".

I totally believe that Google strains and grunts each time it has to give data to the NSA, and worries strenuously that it might be violating people's privacy.

And I also think that little leprechaun from the cereal commercials gives me oral pleasure in my sleep.

Get your own adsense/analytics already, geez... and try paying for it.

It's fun to watch the internet companies trip over themselves in the hurry to show that they were TOTALLY not into helping the Feds spy on everyone.  Really.  All their data recording was for commercial purposes only!

FTFA Some technology law experts scoffed at Google's claims of delivering information by hand. While the government seems to employ various ways of obtaining data, it appears to seek a large amount of information in a format that is searchable, which suggests that its collection from Google, Facebook and others is vast, these experts said.

Having dealt with these requests in the past - we did indeed deliver some of the data by hand in paper form.  Sometimes by secure file transfer.  Sometimes by fedexing a CDROM (which meant going to an Best Buy to buy a fark'n CD burner).  Companies like google have to deal with these requests on a scale that I can't imagine - so putting in a system to streamline it makes sense.

/in my last gig - the lawyer I dealt with the most regarding these requests kept referring to iPhones and Android devices as PDAs

gingerjet: so putting in a system to streamline it makes sense.


putting the data in DB and then doing a DB to DB link/ transfer is definitely the most efficient way, and, arguably most secure too.  But now the data is pretty much ready to go to be linked to a BI system to search through quickly and efficiently and to generate reports from.

To add to this, really what companies like Google are doing is admitting how they have tears streaming down their face as they deep throat the giant government cock shortly after a good anal pounding

Makes me wonder about the veracity of the wifi data collection being accidental or paid for.
