    This. Companies won't take data security seriously unless there are actual consequences for not doing so, especially for companies like Facebook which have no competitors to speak of and so you can't rely on market pressure. On that note, 1.63 billion means literally nothing to Facebook...

    Blockchain is the Future of Social Media Privacy

    Good luck with that if social media regulation gets pushed through. I have a sneaking suspicion that this will wind up being the best thing that ever happened to Facebook. It sheer size and scale already make it notoriously difficult to compete against (assuming you're allowed to compete...

    Blockchain is the Future of Social Media Privacy

    Facebook Loses Over $60 Billion in Market Value in 2 Days

    Facebook loses $60 billion, then you realize its still worth $476.83 billion. Lots of padding still left and the 2020 elections are still 2 years and change away. Plenty of time for this to blow over.

    Europe Asks Social Networks to Remove Terrorist Content Within an Hour

    The White House Plans to Privatize the International Space Station

    "Private" does not necessarily mean "for-profit". Non-profit organizations are also privately owned. The ISS could conceivably be adopted by a non-profit organization focused on scientific research. Funding would be provided via donations and maybe for-profit subsidiaries that are spun up to...

    Dell XPS 13 - Quick Specification Questions.

    The amount of RAM is going to have a bigger impact on multi-tasking, in this case, then the CPU. 4GB of RAM is very likely not going to be enough. I have the Dell XPS 13 9350 w/ 8GB of RAM and I regularly max that out while multi-tasking.
