The Federal Communications Commission is trying to open up the closed world of TV set-top boxes, with the goal of finally killing that dust-gathering, power-sucking box altogether. They’ve proposed a new rule known as “Unlock the Box” that allows devices and apps from any manufacturer to connect with your home cable or satellite TV feeds. We think the FCC’s effort has the potential to unlock new competition, delivering cost savings and innovation...

SMTP STS: Better approach client-side

+Steve Gibson

By your description, I don't like SMTP STS either. I think a better idea would be to address the problem from the client side. What if the proposers of STS, who handle a large amount of the world's email, made public a policy to advantage encrypted connections over unencrypted ones? Our experience with the SHA2 certificate conversion shows that this can work, even if it is painful.

In the SHA2 transition, Google used Chrome warnings to bring progressively greater pressure as a publicly-stated deadline approached. For mail, Google could begin by delaying messages that must cross a non-secure hop. Or, their knowledge of their own flows would allow them to predict, and therefore present to the Gmail user, that the message will be sent without encryption. No provider "XYZ" wants to be mentioned in the warning, "Your message to steve@xyz.com will be sent without encryption because xyz.com cannot receive messages securely." Eventually, Google could even bounce messages, with "Encryption required but not available." They could permit users or corporate customers to opt in, then opt out, and eventually remove the option.

    Parking garage is terrible. Under reconstruction for months, with dust on cars, double parking and forced valet. Recently a huge number of spots was allocated to handicapped use, reducing space even further. No longer allowed to walk through the building lobby to stay warm in winter while waiting to cross the street.
