The best part about Google Hangouts when it first launched is that it was passive. You started a Hangout, told it which people were allowed to join, and they could see it in their feed and join at their leisure.

But now it rings everyone in a circle I invite like a phone call, quite possibly annoying them if they're not interested. Not cool, +Google.

‎Among the most disturbing emails in the Wikileaks GIF files is this one, written by a Stratfor analyst to the head of the firm. It gives us a troubling taste of how these private security companies view their role as intermediary between the government and the people:

"Regarding SF landmarks of interest--they need something like Trapwire more for threats from activists than from terror threats. Both are useful, but the activists are ever present around here."


If this doesn't scare the shit out of you, you are part of the problem.

If a social network didn't have ads, respected your privacy and personal information, and focused on the user experience instead of trying to generate ad revenue, would you pay for it? I'd seriously consider it.

I agree with you. I'd have a Moto now if they had unlocked bootloaders. But instead I have a Gnex. I will be excited to have my next phone be a Moto Nexus I can buy unlocked. ::crosses fingers::

And this is what I'm talking about when I say Police State. And as if the raid isn't bad enough, Obama's DOJ is expected to ask the case to be dismissed so it won't set a precedent. Reading this made me sick and very sad. :(
