the tech is in effect a backdoor into our lives

My ipad has a complex passcode, is set to wipe itself after five attempts, and never leaves the house...but the big thing is the Internet Connection Record aspect of the Investigatory Powers Bill.

I guess the best we could do is hope to make that data collection as complex as possible by renewing / trying to force a change of IP address quite regularly. Unless a side-effect of the legislation might be that all ISPs start giving their customer's static IP which case, I'll go and do all my surfing parked up outside the local McDonald's!
