Yeah, we may get a lot of hate for that title.  Twitter might even ban us!

France has gone all . . . French on Pokemon, Uber is making you an unwitting test pilot, and the NSA is just off on its own and not listening to any of the rules.  Also, can someone please sell Facebook a clue?  Historically speaking, they’ll pay a LOT for it!

So you have a “Money Bin”? You still don’t have “Marissa Money”

I think it is my new life goal to get paid to specifically NOT do a job.  I’m not sure how I’ll ever hit that mark, but I will not rest until I find a way.

Meanwhile, China has just found a way to see what we’re all doing online, police use technology and a bit of science fiction to get around the 5th Amendment, and (surprise surprise) France has a problem with a Microsoft product.
