“For example, hacking is much more prevalent now than it was even nine years ago,” he said. “Now, it seems unreasonable to think that a computer connected to the Web is immune from invasion.”

This is a bizarre train of thought. By connecting to the internet you are, according to this judge, expecting to be hacked, and therefore, even though hacking is an illegal act, you have no expectation of privacy.

There are those who will not be happy until the only privacy we have is inside of our own heads. At least until we perfect brain scanning!
