The still most widely deployed version, 2.3, is fine. At least if you don't run apps with ads, but then, there's no hope left for you anyway.
Nobody mentions which version introduced the bug in the browser, but I'm guessing it's 3.1. But i know very little.
Google Publishes Commitments It Made To Settle EU Antitrust Case
Everyone is circlejerking on hackernews nowadays.
Kansas To Nix Expansion of Google Fiber and Municipal Broadband
The market is already regulated, and it did not prevent that. Because you all are clueless about current regulations as you will be on future regulation.
We already have regulation against a politician doing seemly dumb things for the people. This is obviously a back room deal with some telco or do no evil Google. Yet, no place it was mentioned WHO signed/proposed the bill.
Unless you learn to pay attention to that little detail, which is the basis of current regulation, by votes or criminal prosecution, how do you expect more regulation to do any difference when the basic ones are already ignored?

Digital Textbook Startup Kno Was Sold For $15 Million
That is interesting. I'd guess they do not like your book because it is a dreaded school assignment to them. Maybe you should go for the schools and allow them to distribute for free after a small fee? that way it would be easier to enforce...
And I am curious if you add a plea against piracy on the book?

Blackberry 10 Sends Full Email Account Credentials To RIM
You may have already purchased such device if you have an Android.
Wifi passwords are sent to Google by default, on every device, email passwords sent to Motorola (owned by Google) on all Motorola devices (except for gmail... Guess they optimized since they already have those)

Linux 3.10 Officially Released
They are dumb. Release the driver as opensource, and depends on the closed 3rd party code, shipped as the current binaryblob.
