Privacy 1

gum2me (723529) writes "Stewart Baker, the first Assistant Secretary (acting as Under Secretary-equivalent) for Policy at the United States Department of Homeland Security (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewart_Baker) makes a compelling argument that the security advantages of Amazon's Silk technology outweigh the privacy concerns. He envisions an internet secured from malware authors in a way that is invisible to the consumer. Could Amazon, Apple, and Google be the new (trusted) gatekeepers to the internet? Is the Wild Wild West of the Internet finally being tamed?"
