The #HeartBleed OpenSSL bug is a significant security threat. While you may not be able to do much about information that may have already been stolen, you can still prevent further data loss. This means you need to act quickly, but not before you've confirmed that the sites you work with have been updated. Here are some things you can do: http://www.eweek.com/security/heartbleed-ssl-encryption-vulnerability-requires-quick-attention.html

You need to read "Who Writes Linux" before you spread your misinformed opinions re. "The scandal is that giant enterprises are doing nothing to contribute to the development, testing and validation of the free software..."

#BlackBerry CEO John Chen announced publicly that he's dumping #TMobile and its customers in a fit of wounded pride over an event that's long past. Unfortunately, BlackBerry is so weak that the company cannot afford to chase customers away, or to shake the confidence of the customers remain. What set of customers will BlackBerry dump next as Chen strives to prove how macho he is? This is a very bad move. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/blackberry-ceo-chen-puts-pride-before-profits-by-dumping-t-mobile.html

An effort by cloud providers to make their products seem new, cool and  trendy by inventing new jargon simply confuses IT managers, and delays adoption while they figure out what it really means, But not everyone does this. We have a refreshing interview with HP's Margaret Dawson. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/road-to-cloud-computing-obscured-by-confusion-marketing-hype.html

#Microsoft is offering $100 off a new PC to get you to dump #XP . This is a good idea, since you have two weeks before it's abandoned. After that, you're on your own, liability issues and all. Fortunately, Microsoft will also help with data migration and even recycling. It's time to move to something besides #WindowsXP . http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/microsoft-offers-100-discount-to-get-you-to-dump-that-old-xp-machine.html

The #Android tests by the White House Communications Agency don't mean that Barack #Obama is giving up his #BlackBerry but rather that the agency is doing its due diligence in testing phones for the Executive Office of the President. BlackBerry is still far more secure than other phones. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/white-house-android-phone-tests-dont-signal-blackberrys-retirement.html

The time has finally come, and you're still running #WindowsXP on the day when support expires. It's too late to panic, but there are steps you can take to protect your data, things you can do before you migrate, and it's always possible that you can just keep on running XP. Maybe. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/windows-xp-support-expiration-doesnt-mean-its-time-to-panic.html

BlackBerry is in enough trouble already. Dumping thousands of loyal customers in a fit of pique is simply dumb. Yes, #Tmobile made a mistake, but they fixed it. Time for #BlackBerry to fix its blunder.

The network is dead. Ever since we declared "The Year of the LAN" the network has existed as a separate entity held apart from the rest of IT, but that's changed. Now the network is just part of the background, another service like electricity and water that we take for granted. And that's a good thing. http://www.eweek.com/networking/at-interop-you-could-watch-the-network-disappear-in-real-time.html

The best idea for cloud security seems to be a security layer in the hypervisor, proposed by Martin Casado of VMware. Name sounds familiar? He's the inventor of OpenFlow. Equally important, he wasn't proposing the security layer specifically for VMware, but rather a standard for virtualized systems. #SecurityLayer #cloud http://www.eweek.com/cloud/cloud-security-viewed-as-vital-but-effective-solutions-lacking.html

Thanks, Pam!
 
I second +Wayne Rash  analysis. From the beginning of the Snowden story, I have cautioned readers to look at both sides of the issue with equal skepticism. Like most topics of great import, details and motives matter. And those are almost never discovered to exist solely in, or entirely in favor of, one camp or the other. Now that the heat of the moment has passed, it's time to look at the evolving evidence with a more discerning eye.

What bullshit ... where was there any presentation of "BOTH" sides of the issue in that article .. all it did was make unsubstantiated claims ... at least WaPo article and Snowden present actual evidence to support their claims, but all this article does is present some unsupported theories (NSA is only collecting foreign phone calls, and Snowden is working with the Russians) and pretending there is some actual research and evidence to back that up.

If we are counting incomplete information, then you're point the finger a the wrong party here .. WaPo and Snowden may have at times presented information that may have been slightly mistaken, but there are people involved in this issue that have outright lied .. and those people are the ones you're trying to apologize for.)
