Robert Reich - President Obama is now selling his proposed Trans...
President Obama is now selling his proposed Trans Pacific Partnership as necessary to contain China. "Either China writes the rules of global trade or we do," he said Friday. But his trade pact is really a giveaway to American-based global corporations that initiated it and are pushing it in Congress -- and which are making and selling all over the world, and shifting profits to wherever they pay the lowest taxes (some are even morphing into foreign corporations). And those same U.S. based corporations do whatever China wants to gain access to that huge market. As an Apple executive told The New York Times, “We don’t have an obligation to solve America’s problems.”

NYT - EU and Google
“With more than a decade of hindsight, the theories supporting the case against Microsoft have all but fallen apart, and the pursuit of the company that makes Windows may suggest a reason for skepticism about this fight against Google: The tech marketplace is fluid and unpredictable. The giants that look most unbeatable today could falter in ways that may once have seemed unthinkable — and without a lot of help from the government.” [...] Google makes most of its money from search ads, but the market for such direct advertising may be tapped out. The next great wave of digital advertising — a market far bigger than search spots — will come from ad budgets now reserved for TV commercials, and many observers bet that Facebook, not Google, is in the best position to get that business. &! bit.ly/1aCgTK7 &!

Die offizielle Linie der Bundesregierung zur Verschlüsselung | netzpolitik.org
In der Bundespressekonferenz ging es heute um die Frage, inwiefern die Bundesregierung sich an den Cryptowars beteiligt und Hintertüren in Verschlüsselungsfragen und beim Staatstrojaner vorantreibt.

US Spy Programs May Break the Internet if Not Reformed, Google Leader Says | WIRED
Until the US recognizes and restores the fundamental right of ownership you have in your data, he continued, the U.S. cannot hope to rebuild trust lost through the NSA’s widespread surveillance programs. This stance flies in the face of what we expect from internet companies these days, many of whom tend to act as if they own the content we create. [...] COMPANIES HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE THE STEPS THAT APPLE AND OTHERS WERE TAKING TO STRENGTHEN THE SECURITY OF CUSTOMER DATA, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET USED TO IT.
