Popular Wi-Fi Thermostat Full of Security Holes
An Internet-connected thermostat isn't needed for this. 20 years ago our suburban Maryland home had its heat pump on a utility-controlled program - Kilowatchers - that did the same thing without the Internet. The utility was able to switch the heat pump on and off over the power lines offering the same type of discount thanks to a switch they hung on the outside compressor. It worked great. I see they have discontinued it and started this Internet crap.
Mangalyaan Successfully Put Into Mars Orbit
I'm sure they *might* be able to put together a little website with some animated cartoons of rockets. (Prolly end up having to get it redone after it fails to launch properly.)
Securing Networks In the Internet of Things Era
Many many years ago Gartner said it cost some ridiculous amount of $$$ to support a workplace desktop. A little over a decade ago they said it would cost $3K/yr to support a handheld. I've never paid attention to anything they've had to say since.
NSA Agents Leak Tor Bugs To Developers
"Google or Facebook will eventually have to take up the task of making Tor scale up to millions of users as they sell the traversing information to the NSA."

EFF: US Gov't Bid To Alter Court Record in Jewel v. NSA
The Criminals in Congress (TM) have had the ability to retroactively "correct" the Congressional record forever...
Amazon Fire Phone Reviews: Solid But Overly Ambitious
"But if there's some cool, useful functionality to be had from super-aggressive, super-accurate face tracking, the Fire Phone doesn't have it."
The NSA appreciates it tho.
Google, Detroit Split On Autonomous Cars
The entire Detroit car scene has never been about transportation. It is a sales vehicle (sorry) for egos. I think Google, much as I dislike them, are looking at cars as transportation. Too mundane for the Detroit crowd... but much more practical.
NYC Loses Appeal To Ban Large Sugary Drinks
...you have to weed out those who are an excess burden on the body politic.

A Physicist Says He Can Tornado-Proof the Midwest With 1,000-Foot Walls
Homeland Security will jump on this as the perfect opportunity to build a prison large enough to hold us.
NSA Surveillance Reform Bill Passes House 303 Votes To 121
Agreed. Since King of NY and Rogers of MI - who have the NSA's hand so far up their backsides - voted YEA I'm inclined to say the NAYS are close to being Patriots.
Americans Hate TV and Internet Providers More Than Other Industries
I don't blame them for doing what a business is supposed to do as much as I blame the politicians.

Lessig Launches a Super PAC To End All Super PACs
Which is exactly why it will be business as usual. Sorry.
US Nuclear Missile Silos Use Safe, Secure 8" Floppy Disks
Exactly. When the Clinton "young uns" moved in to the White House after Bush One they made a big deal of the old phone system and low-tech offices.
They upgraded to new systems and guess what? The WH started leaking like a sieve because it became easy to do. There was a reason the Bush White house was low-tech.
