GitHub on Twitter: "We're thrilled to announce that we've entered into an acquisition agreement with @Microsoft!… " |
Yes; but with the BS going on with telemetry, it wouldn't surprise me if they tried to buy GitHub to get everyone to use something with built-in spying functionality.

Waxing Poetic with SwiftOnSecurity — A story about Jessica.
Maybe this isn’t her fault. Maybe computer security for the average person isn’t a series of easy steps and absolutes they discard from our golden mouths of wise truths to spite the nerd underclass.

Perhaps it’s the very design of General Purpose Computing. And who built this world of freedom, a world that has so well served 17-year-old Jessica? You did. We did.

So whose fault is it.

Opera Developer News - 300 million users and move to WebKit
"* The chrome browser is filled with spyware (clientID, RLZ identifier, visited url's being send to google, etc...). I most certainly hope opera will NOT have those?

Opera already looks a bit like chrome and will now uses the same engine chrome uses. If I wanted to use chrome, I would already be using the 'Comodo Dragon' browser, that browser is based on chrome but without the spyware see ). Why would I continue using opera, if it looks like any other browser and now also acts like any other browser?"
