Despite a federal court order directing Microsoft to turn overseas-held email data to federal authorities, the software giant said Friday it will continue to withhold that information as it waits for the case to wind through the appeals process. The judge has now ordered both Microsoft and federal prosecutors to advise her how to proceed by next Friday, September 5.
Let there be no doubt that Microsoft’s actions in this controversial case are customer-centric. The firm isn’t just standing up to the US government on moral principles. It’s now defying a federal court order.
"Microsoft will not be turning over the email and plans to appeal," a Microsoft statement notes. "Everyone agrees this case can and will proceed to the appeals court. This is simply about finding the appropriate procedure for that to happen."

"customer-centric"?! From the company that’s built a backdoor for the Feds into every version of Windows since Win95? LOL!!

Israel has announced plans to expropriate 4 sq km of Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank.
The decision to appropriate land south of Bethlehem is believed to be the largest seizure by Israel in 30 years.
The military-run local administration said it was a response to the kidnapping and killing of three Jewish teenagers in the area in June.
Palestinians said diplomatic action should be taken against Israel. The US urged Israel to reverse the move.

Is there anyone surprised by this? If so, you’re fucking ignorant.

The hostility that America continues to express against the Muslim people has given rise to feelings of animosity on the part of Muslims against America and against the West in general.

ps: just noticed this on the page I got this quote from - “Author Profession: Criminal”. I hope the same profession is listed for George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
