A Swedish sociology professor has nominated Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize. He says the NSA whistleblower could help “save the prize from the disrepute incurred by the hasty and ill-conceived decision” to give the 2009 award to Barack Obama.

Time to put Internet regulating and administrative bodies under strict UN Laws and UN Control ? | 

#NSA #Prism

Just a few hours ago my chromebook updated to dev channel 29.0.1541.3 and with my Samsung Chromebook, my issues with my packaged apps not recognizing me (the ones that tell me to sign out and sign in again) have subsided. A new issue has surfaced though. Whenever I restart my chromebook, its tap to click functionality goes away. I once went to settings, unchecked to tap-to-click box and re-clicked it, and about two minutes later tap-to-click suddenly appeared. Is anyone else having this problem?

Dear Google users—

You may be aware of press reports alleging that Internet companies have joined a secret U.S. government program called PRISM to give the National Security Agency direct access to our servers. As Google’s CEO and Chief Legal Officer, we wanted you to have the facts.

First, we have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers. Indeed, the U.S. government does not have direct access or a “back door” to the information stored in our data centers. We had not heard of a program called PRISM until yesterday.

Second, we provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process. Press reports that suggest that Google is providing open-ended access to our users’ data are false, period. Until this week’s reports, we had never heard of the broad type of order that Verizon received—an order that appears to have required them to hand over millions of users’ call records. We were very surprised to learn that such broad orders exist. Any suggestion that Google is disclosing information about our users’ Internet activity on such a scale is completely false. 

Finally, this episode confirms what we have long believed—there needs to be a more transparent approach. Google has worked hard, within the confines of the current laws, to be open about the data requests we receive. We post this information on our Transparency Report whenever possible. We were the first company to do this. And, of course, we understand that the U.S. and other governments need to take action to protect their citizens’ safety—including sometimes by using surveillance. But the level of secrecy around the current legal procedures undermines the freedoms we all cherish.

I dont know when Cloud Print Beta got an update, but it looks great! Thanks Google! Works really smoothly and has a bunch of features that has their names next to them (unlike previous tries with Cloud Print Beta).

I have a question about the Remote Desktop App. Im going to be a freshman in college next fall, and with all the programs required to run on my computer, having a chromebook is just not going to cut it. I am building a desktop right now and would like to use it there, but I will need to be able to use some programs during class. How does the remote desktop work for you? I set up a connection to another old laptop that I have, but there was significant delay, and the screen was small and hard to really focus on. (Granted my internet is TERRIBLE at 1.33 Mbps and that laptop was really slow anyway). What experiences have you had with Remote Desktop and does this sound feasible?
