Just noticed this article in the Irish Times Friday 7th

http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/frontpage/2008/1107/1225925540654_pf.html

Garda Commissioner Facthtna Murphy is requesting that mobile operators keep tract of all their customers web browsing not only a record of what websites are visited but a record of the content as well  ! ? ! for possible future criminal investigations ? !! .

Now what do you make of this ?

Generally this is the stuff of George Orwell and the Minstry of Truth (main stream media these days). Apparently the only operator contacted so far is Vodafone, which i find (maybe not) surprising considering the fact who my mobile is with. I remember trying the mobile broadband last year and I had to take it back as the unit didn’t work with Vista so I tried the 3G modem on my N70 that worked all right but really was slower than a dial-up ( by the way I don’t recommend that you use 3G modem on your handset as I got charged 8-12 c/kb so got quiet a alarming bill just for checking my email for a month !) Anyway I got proper broadband installed.

Can’t say that I am in agreement with giving the Police any extra powers and believe that the E.U should be told to stuff their data directive in the you know where.
