Microsoft has collaborated closely with US intelligence services to allow users’ communications to be intercepted, including helping the National Security Agency to circumvent the company’s own encryption, according to top-secret documents obtained by the Guardian.
The files provided by Edward Snowden illustrate the scale of co-operation between Silicon Valley and the intelligence agencies over the last three years. They also shed new light on the workings of the top-secret Prism program, which was disclosed by the Guardian and the Washington Post last month.

After weeks of research and playing with a first-generation iPad, I’ve made my decision to purchased a Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi tablet a week after it came out. I own a Motorola Droid first generation. My experience with Motorola products has been a pleasure, from CB radios to communications appliances for my government clients; Motorola has delivered quality products for the most part.

Sometimes, the good old whiteboard is the best tool to brainstorm about new concepts and application features, especially after a couple of glasses of wine. Lately, I’ve started to use a blank sheet of paper 11” x 17” (preferred) or 8 ½” x 11” in size and a pencil for designing User Interface (UI) concepts. I later use Publisher or Photoshop to re-create a digital version of it.

I’ve started receiving emails from Intuit’s TurboTax service. This was very strange, especially because I have not used their service this year. The email was addressed to RAMON MARTINEZ. Obviously we both share the same last name, but RAMON is nowhere near PEDRO when it comes to spelling. Regardless, I’m now receiving all his tax information online, and could potentially change his Intuit’s account password and make some damage. So much for online security.
