like vacation pictures directly from my iPhone to Facebook.  The
downside of this is that the images are greatly reduced in
quality/resolution, and have the metadata stripped from them.

and, I'm guessing, not just your's, Ron!

Not sure just what you mean.  I load the images from my phone to
Facebook, and, yes, all uploaded photos are stripped of their metadata
by Facebook to prevent stalkers from finding people because they forgot
to strip their GPS data from their images.

Some time ago, the Australian Government legislated for all Australian ISP's to have to hold e-mail metadata for at least two years, so yesterday I asked my ISP, via ChatZilla, if that law was now in force ....

[18:21]	ISP		Yes, that is law. And it's WAY WAY WAY more than merely email.
[18:22]	Me		Oh!! O.K., should I be really, really, worried??
[18:25] Me By your "more than merely email" are you suggesting nntp and/or http and/or ftp?
[18:27]	ISP		yes, no and yes. (and more)

So, Big Brother is definitely out there!
