Suspicionless phone searches at the border are unconstitutional, court rules

(CNN)A federal court ruled Tuesday that suspicionless searches of international travelers’ smartphones and laptops at US ports of entry are unconstitutional. They argued the Customs and Border Protection and ICE policies that allow border searches of electronic devices without a warrant violate the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizure.It was a win in part for the travelers, as the judge limited searches at the border to those based on “reasonable suspicion,” but did not rule that officials needed to obtain a warrant. “This is a great day for travelers who now can cross the international border without fear that the government will, in the absence of any suspicion, ransack the extraordinarily sensitive information we all carry in …

A right royal mistake: is the Queen the ultimate feminist? Absolutely not

Olivia Colman has said that Her Majesty is feminist through and through a shining example to other women. Heres why her reasoning doesnt stack up For clarity, I love Olivia Colman, we love her (if I have read this memo correctly) as an organisation, and she is a feminist. She was accused of having a leftwing face by the Telegraph columnist Charles Moore. What the hell is a leftwing face? she retorted, rightly. She does, however, have a feminist face, by which I mean there is a lot going on in it. However, her assertion this week that the Queen whom she plays, following a cast change, in the new series of The Crown Caroline Criado-Perez hadnt beaten her to …

Google hasn’t yet determined how exactly the slow websites will be labeled, but says it may experiment with different options to see which makes the most sense.

Both vapesand e-cigarettes have been in the news recently, as the federal government and states work on varying degrees of bans on the devices.
