So, about keyboards, it seems it does not longer matter if they are wireless or not, huh?
About 5, yeah, the other browsers perform better, but since everyone and their dog ran such benchmarks a thousand times with the "alternative" browsers, and TraceMonkey has been known to perform better than V8 for a while (and it's improving), I found kind of interesting they ran the benchmark on IE, and that it showed such a leap in performance, which is all the better for the web.
About 2. Passports Will Be Needed to Buy Mobile Phones.. How is this possible? It's not really original, books and movies have been predicting this day for a few decades. I just wasn't expecting it would ever come.
Yeah, we have this in Spain since the 11-M. If you want to buy a prepaid phone, you have to use your DNI
and all the data goes into your phone provider databases. Since the terrorists used prepaid phones to communicate between them prior the massacre, that's why they can't be anonymously bought anymore. I don't think it's that much of an issue, as the Spanish government is generally trustable in privacy concerns, and the details of each phone number are only available per request of the authorities.
Another thing is demanding your encryption keys. That's unacceptable.
