"Your data is our data, your equipment is our equipment."

This really isn't news, but it is something to pay attention to:
According to top secret documents from the archive of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden seen exclusively by SPIEGEL, they are planning for wars of the future in which the Internet will play a critical role, with the aim of being able to use the net to paralyze computer networks and, by doing so, potentially all the infrastructure they control, including power and water supplies, factories, airports or the flow of money.
No water means cities of all sizes die within a couple weeks. Less, in many cases, maybe a lot less.

One must admire the Remote Operations Center's motto, though: "Your data is our data, your equipment is our equipment."
