+Fanen Ahua Look spam is annoying but the world is not out to get you, there are no commies, jihadis, Jehovah's witnesses, scientologists or hipsters under your bed.
Falsifying JPGs and interfering with your weather data is just not worth it, as to script kiddies doing MiM, unless you are on an insecure LAN it is a lot harder to do.
I know it is trollish and even somewhat insulting, but your obsession with HTTPS and persistent displays of paranoid behaviour might be indicative of some mental problems, I'd recommend you see a professional.

"The decision that Google has made is unacceptable and unintelligible to CNNIC, and meanwhile CNNIC sincerely urge that Google would take users’ rights and interests into full consideration."

I think that means we did something right.

Draconian move follows the issuance of certificates masquerading as Google domains.

I would say that this is a prudent move by Google. Certs are a means of trust and when one breaks that trust, they cannot be acknowledged as a source for others to build trusted connections on.

CISPA is back.
Hoping to save money on cybersecurity, large corporations are pushing to share their private online data with the government via an NSA-backed bill known as CISA. One top lobbyist even suggested to the spy agencies a viral marketing campaign akin to the "ALS ice bucket challenge."

China’s Great Cannon "is an in-path system, capable of not only injecting traffic but also directly suppressing traffic, acting as a full 'man-in-the-middle' for targeted flows."
This post describes our analysis of an attack tool that we identify as separate from, but co-located with, the Great Firewall of China.

Happy Worst Day on The Internet. But the Google Maps Pac-Man hack is brilliant.
Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 8:36 AM. Over the years, we've updated Google Maps to make it more accurate, comprehensive and useful. From imagery of the coffee shop down the road to the Taj Mahal, or turn-by-turn navigation that helps you get to your first date on time or find your way to a famous ...

Might seem gimmicky on its face, but the potential here is large, and the technology is ready.
Running low on Izze sodas? Tide detergent? Olay lotion? A new Amazon product, the Dash Button, will give you a one-click way to get a fresh shipment of what you need, stat.

The real promise/premise of this for Amazon is on the "Developers" page -- the Brother printer that can order new toner for itself, or integrating it into things like your washing machine or coffee pot directly.  I don't think this is (+Jorge Castro's) "mini billboard". This is a beta test for the ordering infrastructure before they get the functionality widely integrated into other consumer goods.
