680 million eggs

If you put all your eggs in one basket, watch that basket.  Carefully.

What about 680 million phone numbers in use?  Would you want to transfer those to a Swedish company?  Would that affect law enforcement or privacy rights? How would you know who to tap?

“Phone Database at Center of Debate,” Wall Street Journal, September 29, 2014 B1.  Proposal to transfer contract from US company to Swedish company has law enforcement folks up in arms.

Where does one start?  Whose information and privacy rights are they? What’s the information (or access to the information) worth? And who knows when someone accesses that information?  What’s that information worth?

And, a holdover from Saturday. “Just Say No to Six More Episodes,” Wall Street Journal, September 27-28, 2014 D11.  Information on how to avoid being sucked in to watching the next episode (or next five episodes) when you’re on Netflix.
