In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

Encrypt your internets! But , seriously, why isn't every website using SSL encryption by default? Yes, it takes extra cpu power, but this is not the 90s anymore and servers nowadays can easily handle the extra weight.
