The FCC has opted in its proposed rules to allow internet service providers - the ones we pay for access to all internet content - to charge content providers - the sites we want to access on the internet - for "special access to consumers." In other words, if the content you want to see is served up by someone or some business unable to pay for "special access to consumers," it may come into your home at a crawl.

The FreePress organization ( http://freepress.net ) describes these proposed rules as bringing "the death of the internet." http://act.freepress.net/sign/internet_fcc_break/?t=1&akid=4703.10100136.kyGsfy 
ISPs could charge for improved access as long as they don't block Web services.

A look at Sgt. Star, the US Army's chatbot:
You Asked: Tell us all your secrets. SGT STAR: Good question. I'm not sure how to answer that. Please try rewording your question. I understand simple questions best. You Asked: In that case, tell us everything. SGT STAR: That is a good question, however, I am not positive that I understand what you're asking. Try rephrasing your question. I understand simple questions best.

We can only hope that the report by these anonymous sources is untrue:
The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said.
