Dropbox responds ...
"There's nothing more important to us than keeping your stuff safe and secure," Houston writes. "It's why we've been fighting for transparency and government surveillance reform, and why we've been vocal and public with our principles and values." He notes that "none of that will change" with Rice joining the Dropbox board, and reiterated the fact that the company was proud to have her on the board.


Meh.

The Transform table made its debut at the Lexus Design Amazing exhibition in Milan. It employs three "Dynamic Shape Displays" that collectively move 1,000 pins that respond to gestures in real-time. The display can undulate in wave forms, and is designed to remind the owner of water or sand.

Samsung Misled Investors
This week we learned, thanks to a February 2012 internal Samsung document marked “top secret” and unearthed by Apple as part of its ongoing patent infringement proceedings, that we were right and those more credulous news outlets were wrong.

When Strategy Analytics was telling the world that Samsung sold 2 million Galaxy Tabs in six weeks, the truth was that it took Samsung all of 2011 to sell half that many.

What's your guys' go to tech news site?

I used to use Mashable ton but that dropped off considerably with the site redesign a while back. Honestly I think my favorite source right now is just using the Tech section on the Facebook Pages app.
depends on what kind of tech you look for, I read Pc Perspective and Anandtech alot but they're most focused on PC hardware. I also watch youtube videos alot, namely LinusTechTips. If you're looking for good content on web security and the state of the internet Tek Syndicate is pretty good, they do a weekly show called The Tek that is pretty informative. They do sometimes go in to tinfoil hat territory but given all that's come out recently it's hard to figure out if they're overreacting or not.

The technology section of Google News is a daily go to for me. It hits the big topics which is what I'm most concerned about. Otherwise, I just get my news from other random forums I'm a member at.

My productivity is nearing dangerous lows at the moment. I feel like doing nothing except reading garbage on the internet. I got zapped of wanting to do dick somehow.

I did take the Buzzfeed quiz and learned I am apparently "not privileged" (bullshit).

I am quite privileged. I would've guessed I would score higher than I did.
