Smith v. Maryland is far too overreaching in what it allows as an expectation of privacy. It’s basically saying if I tell you a secret and the government forces you to tell them that secret, they didn’t need a warrant to get it from you because it was basically public information.* That is completely and utterly wrong.*
Here’s the problem, that’s your opinion. That is simply not fact, or rule of law. You can’t keep replying with your argument that way. You are whole heartedly welcomed to disagree and use our system to change that, but that’s not what has legal standing. There are a lot, actually too many of these emotional responses to this whole thing and hinders the needed educated discussion on the matter.
that’s true, but if cross platform publishers expect to use it on the Xbox, you’d think they’re probably nudging Sony too. Rather than waging the PR war, they are just letting it play itself out. Either way there’s no built in trigger here, and that’s the important part, up to pubs.
