Microsoft is up to its old tricks again. It's funny how they do these evil things at regular intervals, as if to remind people that they are never to be trusted.
Worried about Windows 10's deep-reaching user tracking? Some of it's coming to Windows 7 and 8, too.

I gave up my (very limited) trust with NT4. At most, I run a select few company enforced apps inside a vbox.

A Facebook Horror Story, where we learn how its most vulnerable and exposed users are systematically mistreated. A good and important, if depressing, must-read.
Medium contacted me about publishing this on their site ("Hi from Medium - We loved your piece"). Apparently it hit a nerve in their offices, and sparked "intense conversation." It wasn't an easy post to write.

It's interesting to see the food additives visualized though photography. Gives you a perspective on what we actually eat.

It would have been even better if they could have shown them to scale, the relative amounts by weight.
Cool Ranch Doritos contain 34 ingredients.

When I make tortilla chips the ingredients are: corn, olive oil and salt.

Ooo! I know a way of reducing the latency of calculating the waterline to real-time! It adds extra sensory and reflective realism to boot.

Life imitates art?
I can’t honestly think of anything scarier than the idea of Donald Trump becoming the President of the United States, which is shockingly a future that is starting to seem like a real possibility. From his ridiculous hair to his concerning viewpoints, Trump truly is a horror villain for the real world. One can onlyRead More

This is worrying.  The reaction online seems to be uniformly negative, I'm afraid.  I'm going to have to start looking at alternatives, just in case things go South.

+Christopher Snow, I have no personal experience with them. But the consensus from hundreds of comments from angry users seems to indicate that Logmein is known for breaking promises to their users, and they seem to have a significantly worse reputation and lower perceived trustworthiness than Lastpass.

To be fair, some (but not all) of the complaints seem to relate to free user accounts, and since I'm a paying customer, I don't care very much about restrictions for free users.
