"Update: With little fanfare, the Guardian has now added a note (at the bottom) saying that it has adjusted the story because of the initial misleading claims:

This article was amended on 20 March 2014 to remove statements in the original that the testimony by Rajesh De contradicted denials by technology companies about their knowledge of NSA data collection. It was also updated to clarify that the companies challenged the secrecy surrounding Section 702 orders."
 
"I'm seeing a bunch of folks passing around a story by Spencer Ackerman at The Guardian, claiming that tech companies lied about their "denials" of PRISM. The story is incredibly misleading. Ackerman is one of the best reporters out there on the intelligence community, and I can't recall ever seeing a story that I think he got wrong, but this is one. But the storyline is so juicy, lots of folks, including the usual suspects are quick to pile on without bothering to actually look at the details, insisting that this is somehow evidence of the tech companies lying."

Love the heavy guitar of death metal but you're put off by the screaming bearded guys? Swap in some Japanese teen-pop singers! #Babymetal may be the greatest thing ever.

"This may be the best metal song ever written about how awesome it is to eat chocolate"

"Somewhere in Norway there is a metalhead in corpse paint standing in a forest crying tears of blood."

Apparently Moviefone is shutting down. This reminded me of Seinfeld and Kramer...

Last week, we told you about the failure of spy agency CSEC's supposed watchdog to rein their unaccountable spying in - Canadians are dismayed at this blatant attempt to whitewash legitimate privacy concerns.

The fact that these jackets (from 3 different companies!) exist highlights the lunacy of the airline industry. Airlines are encouraging passengers to cram as much stuff as possible into the main cabin. That makes boarding slower and causes delays which cost the airline money. They have to gate check bags (for free) which costs still more money. And they don't save fuel (or money) if a bag is in the cabin instead of the hold. Never mind how much passengers hate checked bag fees or the increased cost to airport security.

Today, CSEC's supposed 'watchdog' came out to say there is nothing wrong with CSEC's collection of our metadata, assuring us that we have nothing to be concerned about. Well, we're tired of the spin and we're here to myth-bust these spyspeak-isms. 

Thank you to community member Richard for flagging our attention to the original story.
