"Never belong to any party, always oppose privileged classes and public
plunderers, never lack sympathy with the poor, always remain devoted to
the public welfare, never be satisfied with merely printing news, always
be drastically independent, never be afraid to attack wrong, whether by
predatory plutocracy or predatory poverty."

Hewlett-Packard plans to launch a product on Friday that helps
governments check the digital identity of citizens.

The technology, called the HP National Identity System, is designed to
be used in conjunction with a number of Microsoft products, including
its .Net line of server, database and middleware programs. The
companies plan to jointly develop, market and offer training for the
authentication system.
