A new report says the U.S. Justice Department allowed law enforcement agencies to examine more private data in 2010-2011 than in the entire previous decade. The kind of surveillance allowance isn't new -- but the kinds of data the government is being allowed to pull has changed. And while digital technology has disrupted the old way of doing business for many industrites -- like music and books -- it's taken a while with one near-essential, wine. But Amazon may try selling wine online, again.
