"We wanted to make sure that the human rights and environmental safety violations in Apple's supply chain are at the forefront of people's minds if they're considering a new electronic device," said Green America's Elizabeth O'Connell.

net-neutrality
Possibly as confusing as Net neutrality itself, a great Internet "slowdown" is planned for Sept. 10. It's essentially an online demonstration in favor of Net neutrality, but one of the main tools for catching attention is the "page loading" symbol. It's not really going to slow down your site, the organizers say -- it will just look that way. The aim is to drive emails and calls to politicians. [More...]

The iCloud security issue that's been in the headlines all week should be a great big wake-up call to everyone. The cloud is coming; however, we are still in the very early days.

home-depot-data-breach
Home Depot has reassured its customers that they won't be responsible for any fraudulent credit card charges to their accounts, while stopping short of admitting that a breach of its customer data actually occurred. If an attack dwarfing Target's actually occurred, customers may start avoiding major brick-and-mortar retailers and shop online, where their data appears to be safer -- so far. [More...]

Smartphones, tablets and other wireless devices have made it possible for consumers to access the Internet from almost anywhere in the world -- but apps are the tools that specifically drive usage, by offering an easy-to-use interface.

cybervor-hack-attack
It seems CyberVor and its ilk are winning the cyberwar. Consumers are not following the advice of security professionals regarding usernames and passwords, and hackers are having a field day. "This is not a new problem," said Craig Spiezle, president of the Online Trust Alliance. "We need to have a better system of managing passwords, both from a security perspective and for ease of use."

Dropbox last week announced a Pro cloud-storage overhaul that includes new features and lower pricing. Improved security and better sharing controls are the focus of the new features, while a simplified pricing plan offers all Dropbox Pro users a full terabyte of storage for $9.99 per month, replacing multiple options that offered less storage at higher prices.

The U.S. government soon will be operating in the 2015 fiscal year, which begins on Oct. 1. For information technology vendors, marketing to federal agencies will remain challenging during 2015 and succeeding years, as agencies work within a constrained budget environment. In the short term, overall federal IT spending will decline. However, most of the reductions will fall within the DoD. [More...]

google-project-wing
In the absence of clear U.S. rules on the commercial use of drones, it's been something of a free-for-all for those interested in developing the technology. Google is the latest to demonstrate a prototype, built by members of its Project Wing team. Instead of landing, like Amazon's drone does, Google's drops packages on a long line. That way, eager recipients can't stick their hands in its blades. [More...]
