A report commissioned by the Florida Department of State has found flaws in Diebold's e-voting software that could compromise the integrity of its optical scan and touch screen machines. Although Diebold corrected many flaws previously identified, significant vulnerabilities remain, found researchers at Florida State University's Security and Assurance in Information Technology Laboratory. A flaw in the optical scan software, for example, enables a hacker to introduce an unofficial memory card into an active terminal before the polls open.

MyKey Technology offered technology to Diebold a year 1/2 ago that would prevent this type of problem. Diebold blew them off.
"The least they could do is give voting machines the same level of security as a Slot Machine" a quote from Mark Menz of MJMenz & Assoc.

How urgent is the need to provide broadband services for rural U.S. communities?
It's critical to the entire economy, and everyone should share the cost.
If rural residents really want high-speed Internet, they should foot the bill.
Internet providers will benefit -- they should build out their own networks.
The government should ensure that everyone is connected, but broadband isn't necessary.
People who choose to live off the grid do so for a reason -- leave them alone.
Providers should improve broadband services in heavily populated areas first.
