Initial Reactions to Riley v. California

Yesterday, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that police must obtain a warrant prior to searching the cell phones of the people they arrest in Riley v. California. In an opinion widely heralded as a resounding victory for privacy in the digital age, Chief Justice Roberts wrote:

Obviously, I’m missing something, but why would anyone choose to complicate any retail transaction by paying with Bitcoins (et al), which are effectively a volatile “foreign” currency with a ~2% FX conversion fee (~1% buy/sell at each end)—even for a local transaction—and has no transaction dispute resolution process?

  15. When it comes to security issue, it’s always a twofold question. On one hand, it’s not very smart to be an illiterate user today, even with the volume of online shields and various scanning methods which simplify identification of fraud and secure operations in the Internet. Still, that doesn’t mean that a user can be light-minded with dealing online, especially when it comes to serious business, like performing financial operations online, giving out or receiving banking and personal information of great value, carrying online documentation and important communication. It’s not always your bank, which guarantees user’s security, it’s the user prudent enough to care about online safety.

  16. Warrant is a wonderful reply to a lot of police charges, but does it
    really work? I mean everyone knows stories, where the law was a one sided
    street and the side was not made for the suspect. The scary thing
    is that anybody could be confronted by a squad, so try to find the guts to say “do
    you have a warrant?” then. Great motivational CTA at writers
    per hour
    to always hold your ground. Just ask yourself, do you have
    the right to remain silent when there is so much unfair treatment going on.

  17. One very popular method for companies to train employees who have expressed interest in or are being considered for promotion to managerial positions is to have then view management training courses presented on video.
