I'm not thrilled about this.  Allowing Facebook to participate in your financial future is not good for you.  Trust me.
Facebook is reportedly planning to take a step into financial services, allowing users in select regions to store money online to use for making payments and transferring funds to others. According...

This is such a bad thing.  Too many of us gave Facebook personal information in exchange for online social contact with friends and old acquaintances.  We know they are mining the crap out of that data.  By adding financial data Facebook will be able to determine who your friends are and know their worth compared to your own.  Count me out.

President Obama's recent attempts to narrow the country's gender wage gap have been at the center of the public debate this week. But in tech, there's another, even more fundamental discussion going on about women in the workplace. It's not just about pay; it's about presence.

When NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden first emailed Glenn Greenwald, he insisted on using email encryption software called PGP for all communications. But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA's prying eyes. It's called Tails. And naturally, nobody knows exactly who created it.

HOW DO WE STOP THIS RUN AWAY GOVERNMENT REMOVING EVERY CHECK AND BALANCE AND GRANTING THEMSELVES UNLIMITED POWER.

Acts like this are not of leadership, they are of power, they are of control.  A 'good' NSA would inform companies and work with them to be more secure.  Not hide flaws, and hope that the NSA is the only one that knows about the exploit.  What if foreign companies or organized crime knows about the security hole?  Shouldn't our government help you understand when you are unsafe, rather than ensuring you stay unsafe?

I guess there is always honor among thieves.
The Heartbleed bug is making some Americans question whether the US government would publicly disclose such a flaw or keep it secret in the name of national security purposes. Now it seems the...
