Quotes

...on the CIA Inspector General report today, I have no choice but to call for the resignation of CIA Director John Brennan," he said in a statement. "The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate Intelligence Committee computers. This grave misconduct not only is illegal, but it violates the U S Constitution’s requirement of separation of powers. These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences."
...” Camille’s reminder to all about the lessons learned during making the Holocaust film - "Remember what happens when good people do nothing” - convinced Lisa and Doug to allow the students to proceed."

And then there's you, the user, going to the market and downloading one or more apps, and you have some relationship of trust with those. If I'm a benign application developer and I use a certain ad framework to make money from my application, and then that ad framework starts sending malicious advertisements or links to malware, who's responsible for this? Where's the trust there? How do you control this trust? How can you be assured that the ad network is going to perform as stated?"
