"Google’s culture is demonstrably hostile to privacy."
Perhaps, but the same could be said for any giant internet based company -Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, etc.
Re: Rogue IT employees - give us the down and dirty
Stories like this make me afraid to rely on IT guys at all, except for phone support every so often. Then again, I don't have any advanced technical needs for my business at this point. I may have to hire someone eventually, though, so I'll have to be thorough about screening them.
How about the genre known as urban fantasy? I like the books of Charles de Lint, for instance, such as The Little Country. I suppose Jim Butcher could be put into this category as well, since his books take place in the present time.
Re: 3D is the future of cinema?
I suppose logically it should be considered the future of cinema, but I'm not so sure. It's been around for a long time -there were 3D glasses decades ago and so far it's still limited in scope. I'm not into the blockbusters with lots of special effects myself. There will always be a market for lower key films that are more character and story focused.
Like iPads and other tablets, the Nexus looks like fun but definitely not something I really need. I have an inexpensive Toshiba laptop that does everything a tablet can do (at least that I care about). Still, I'm sure I'll eventually give in and buy one when I have a little extra cash around.
