Three nuggets

1. IRS

“Republicans Grill IRS Chief Over Lost Emails,” Wall Street Journal, June 21, 2014 A1 http://on.wsj.com/1iWlJjD  Perhaps this is just an unfortunate hard drive failure, but the context raises lots of questions.

2. Cellphones

“Suspects in Florida Tracked By Cellphone ‘Stingray’ Tool,” Wall Street Journal, June 21, 2014 A5 http://on.wsj.com/1uPkE2w  Warrantless “searches”?  A device that “mimics” a cellphone tower described as “a confidential source.”

3. Electronic Politics

“Severe Cyberattacks Seek to Disrupt Hong Kong Poll,” Wall Street Journal, June 21, 2014 A8 http://on.wsj.com/1nUIkl3  Risks in even informal electronic polling.  Attacks on politically sensitive polling in Hong Kong.
