ebrke posted a topic in Security & NetworkingFrom an article in the Washington Post detailing how people will comparison shop online while in a brick and mortar store: Article goes on to say Amazon could then block traffic to competitor's website or redirect to its own website or direct coupons to shopper's smart phone to keep them in the Amazon orbit. I'm assuming you could thwart this by not allowing your phone to connect to their in-store wi-fi, but it's still a worrisome development. Complete article here: https://www.washingt...-in-its-stores/

I just installed Enigmail in Thunderbird the other night. I figured I should be prepared just in case a bunch of my email pals decide that they don't want Big Bro reading over their shoulders. So, in case any of you are into this and want to share public keys, here's mine... -----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.22 (GNU/Linux) mQENBFK44skBCACq6Cz/oXq/FShqIRHcLom9fS/NgGb8nk7NM1RXam1Knryzj+01 RGusVzlJZMfC8i56eeg04xCvC/A4FQqhZ5YUZrqeeNjm37uvjrh0WV+FUQlQPAmp no3p4kMAKSZa1NRuggXKsDG+6xJOW7DE3dsiajPCUIKnEAcQxi7aeZLlwTfAMfKH atgsTsFp7y9652Rh2qobc9BP4t0F9BPLnPgYRwb9MvMrxPqr5i0k/j8kTJw/19JI JfzWjGAp3rFbGvVCbL7nLk+P3CumQe3RaZPUvhrbKgKJZ5cnvqr60zp3tHfl2uun Az1P+yLvw0HDPElXtlZhiHHmcmdzuF8wc+x3ABEBAAG0J3Z0ZWw1N19lbmlnbWFp bC0wMiA8dnRlbDU3QGhvdG1haWwuY29tPokBOQQTAQIAIwUCUrjiyQIbAwcLCQgH AwIBBhUIAgkKCwQWAgMBAh4BAheAAAoJECQTeWSaJG5fbmAH/1esukgYqOJ/adOK afYscwWy9HKBFX3bSPtAWGr8F6VGcZ3ZV9+EJ+dTfw+Z7kL6jwRc3+p9hTjPgB/R qqQL03xEpFqNBAgrX82fTHg4g1l7RldjImCbJ3H5ySI16+U7+kyAEd7GEm1mh2nq HQOJRbVcmm5BsGjS/n9iMDXotvzad5E1qn/AQE5R88HxEn/1ERT8FmzjoUTVwMoJ tuoV0Ybkfq3lQ6TfPp+Tun7PpiEADFT4+96HKx3ocjzdxOyty6jEmC/pOKidZB4n LSsL/YeyqqrNm7Sl0u4WTDGoU60ip+4/ulVi6Mev0UWV9KQHNt3p2O33GYIOvEse 0dxiAN+5AQ0EUrjiyQEIAK8mHo57WT1IT4WXawsBRSSn9kZ2OeOURrrdTLjy3jdY e/X9zlH6CFHZdt5oyxCHmqkvUYG0GusTTgnHNQLy/pOCiTYGaeiD6qW/I7qx9pJ6 QWmzGt+cYU1RXMoWI3MON5VmIjtieE2vWXCo3Xpm/oxvE9UasPGyqCb9JOIgZa9G /QSiboV4y0lPeCQjPX61gaRSzsRY8Y3B9qAQH2y0/qn7TEeMYMjJgjTTObdeBl4f P9DB6QBynQwg4L0bqS2hh09ZRzzn8hvcHITpJt0En0JGwAQojDhISOtnHCHgXqAD asCL7Frp7NDvFAFv3jGjgnsjkJW4kYJB7+yk4Cu5mcUAEQEAAYkBHwQYAQIACQUC UrjiyQIbDAAKCRAkE3lkmiRuX0MzB/444+c7pcqCvmjWhVhVG1dld196WpHETCff 5XqjnChOCRLVh/jjf88CMYV8yHGhkG0toBuR9jtSb+DsXCPRfUASAO97szNSxWvC 7v58o471evtS67GIHaRdtv/9ecF9KMF/F1v5FUnqV9X4LPsCLUEFkgdajbQ4oWrJ F/g7B23tUVXrbP2Zhg7A+zexBpFWUXSeoCDHSNZJNRbQSE9p3bis0jybBvKToIH1 /C/8Bu7KhiDIDZCD0RIErZGU3ssILWUOQ6m87suwdC7LosbD355OnL4lVToyPM3h 1ZBMwn7Y0FnMoNLwCL3aGCULiQXa1c8Gvh4bWtyexNoJm99A4X+b =OFcB -----END PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK----- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enigmail https://en.wikipedia...ey_cryptography https://en.wikipedia...U_Privacy_Guard https://en.wikipedia...ty_Good_Privacy

SpiderOak - thoughts?
Guest posted a topic in Security & NetworkingGot the following in their April 2012 email newsletter today from SpiderOak: Any thoughts on SpiderOak?

Think it's a legit claim? Think it can beat out Dropbox?
