google web search ssl beta https june 2010

Google has enabled SSL-support for web search. Not a day too soon.

This may cost them some CPU time, but they’ll keep their user data more private. As in, third parties won’t be able to sniff and track Google traffic on their networks if this becomes the default at some point. This is very good for the consumer, but arguably even more interesting for Google, since it makes data mining more difficult for potential competitors.

Swedish law draft: police and domestic intelligence to gain rights for automatic ‘net wiretapping

Did any silly sod believe even for a minute that the wiretapping rights actually wouldn’t be expanded from the Swedish military intelligence to domestic agencies? Because, you know, it is the Russian internet traffic that was so crucially important to capture?

Also, an article in Svenska Dagbladet (in Swedish).
