I wish I had something inspired to say about the events in Orlando. I don't. It's just senseless, devastating and embarrassing for this to happen in the US. My thoughts are with all who have been affected by this terrible act.

This (among many other reasons) makes me very happy to be a customer of +Sonic.net. If you can, vote with your wallet and switch. You wont regret it.  
News: We've long noted how broadband usage caps on fixed-line networks are little more than glorified rate hikes on uncompetitive markets. Caps serve all manner of purpose for the ISP, including not only letting carriers charge more money for the same serv

Very insightful. I had no idea the guy running Android was a fellow buccaneer scholar. I'm biased to liking these kinds of stories since they echo my own journey, but even without that, his thoughts on learning are enlightening.

This is absolutely a backdoor.  This is not privacy vs. security; this is privacy and security vs. surveillance.

If Apple is made to comply, expect your local police department to be using this without a warrant (like they do with stingrays) in 3 years.  Every traffic stop will be a peek into your digital history.  When you lose your phone, hackers will use the same method to steal your identity, financial information, and personal information.  This is pandora's box.

Be suspicious of anyone selling you safety in exchange for your privacy and security protections.  We've come this far without giving this liberty up, why must we now change?

H/T to +Ars Technica for calling it what it is.
Custom version of iOS could undo years of work Apple put into securing iPhones.

"In the United States, the 2012 Presidential election and the 2014 Congressional elections were ranked worst of any long-established democracy, especially on campaign finance and electoral registration," the report's authors concluded.

"It remains to be seen how experts assess the 2016 US presidential contest,"the expert commission assesses.

PSA:  The IRS doesn't call and leave threatening messages, scammers do.  I just got one of these calls, so do what I did:  hang up, and block the caller.

This is an issue of patriotism, plain and simple. Making progress to ensure the rich aren't stealing from the poor should be a top priority in this country (along with reducing the role of money in government). There's a massive opportunity for good here. 
If the super-rich actually paid what they owe in taxes, the US would have loads more money available for public services

This is a fascinating read for the contrast of things that are 100% applicable today and the parts that are very late 1800's specific.  Highly recommended read, and it goes fast.

I'm sad to see Jeff leaving Google, but I can't think of a better project for someone of his caliber to be working on.  Best of luck, +Jeff Huber!  I certainly wouldn't bet against you.  :)
Jeff Huber Jeff Huber, who helped lead the development of Google’s ad software and its iconic maps application will be the chief executive of Grail, a startup that raised $100 million last month to create a blood test to detect cancer early, when it is treatable. His reasons are scientific, but also personal. On November [...]
