Its nice though that you trust your usb keyboard cause it was made in a free western country. What country is that again? If you say the USA i'll have to start laughing... Especially since you like to mention the CIA. And you still haven't explained exactly what is done with the ground wire? How is information obtained, or how is it used to take over your pc? Enlighten us all, because I can't even find the common sense. It seems you aren't speaking from any real life or personal experience or even suspicions. If i'm wrong i'd like to know why you think so, without the name calling please, we could all benefit. If someone has government hitmen trying to kill them, the last thing they should be doing is using a computer or going online. That would be my advice. I wouldn't be trying to sell them hardware. How do we know you are not a government spy? :) Are you stalking me from some crazy libre land? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
