All your emails are belong to us.

At least that’s what the latest court order from a judge in New York says. The warrant, granted on June 11, states that the government can access all the content and files contained in a Gmail account.

Yes, this is a significant blow to privacy......

There’s no time frame on when, or for how long, the emails should be searched.


I assume forever and everything is fair game. This will be a huge blow to Google privacy and kill gmail.

Ouch. I was reading the US has already lost billions from Europeans leaving US servers, cloud servers, etc...
This could well put Google's G mail service in a very precarious position. Nice how they used one case relating to a money laundering investigation to justify a carte blanche for anyone in an alphabet agency to go through your personal correspondence.
Are you feeling safer yet? lol.gif

I'm sure there's something wrong with skype. Microsoft bought it. 13.gif

I'm positive there are several such secure ways in development right now,
