re: John McAfee Wants To Shield You From NSA
The joke is on consumers who fall forMcAfee's snakeoil - the NSA occupies the backbone of the internet thereby putting its data sniffing devices into optimal positioning for interception. It has also cracked TOR's encryption that can be had for FREE. So in addtn to being spied on w/o a warrant, consumers will also have their money extracted by a con artist. Such a bargain.

That's cute. John McAfee thinks there are still people in this world who don't know he is a raving lunatic.

Great thinking however i don't think this will see light if it is engineered against the government.

You couldn't invent this guy. Last I'd really paid attention, he'd been arrested on suspicion of murder. And suddenly he pops up with a $100 technology that's going to thwart the NSA.

re: John McAfee Wants To Shield You From NSA
"There will be no way [for the government] to tell who you are or where you are..." For $100, you too can escape the scrutiny of an agency with $10 billion in annual funding and the legal cover to do pretty much whatever it wants. What a bargain.

Cloaking devices: Perhaps Harry Potter could be of help here, too. I look forward to the next chapter.
