This year, grassroots movements defeated SOPA in the US and ACTA in Europe. We might be able to make another bad-idea bill, CISPA, go down in flames too (or get the privacy protections we've been fighting for).

Last April, the Icelandic government nearly toppled when Parliament was dissolved, after the Panama Papers revealed that Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson was laundering money with Mossack Fonseca — only fear of the popular groundswell for the Pirate Party drove the establishment to keep the government limping along — until now.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign team “scrambled” after coming to believe Joe Biden would oppose her for the Democratic presidential nomination, reports Fox News. Some delicious, if insidery machinations turned up in campaign chief Joe Podesta’s hacked email, as published by Wikileaks: just three days later, the Biden threat appeared vanquished. Ron Klain, a former Biden chief […]

Unlike the old bunny ear-style antennas, this compact antenna is barely noticeable and picks up channels easily.

I’ve never really felt the need to purchase a smartwatch because a lot of them aren’t very functional, but at just shy of $30, the Martian Notifier Smartwatch was worth checking out.
