A two-sided market could strangle start-ups trying to compete with corporate giants for online services in education, health, entertainment, shopping, big data and so on.

A new court ruling achieved this by opening the doors for U.S. broadband providers to offer speedier delivery of Internet services at a higher price to those who can pay. The decision could end up limiting consumer's choices and stifling innovation by favoring huge corporate players over new startups.

Hillary Clinton finally faced down her critics on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week.

She fired back at Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) when he tried to get her to acknowledge that the entire story of an anti-Islamic video inflaming mobs who then murdered Amb. Chris Stevens and three other brave Americans in Libya had been, to put it charitably, wholly unsubstantiated. All along, Hillary had acted as if this was someone else's issue. She was, after all, the Secretary of State who gets "1.43 million cables come into my office" a week. They're all addressed to me, she petulantly shot back. Now, just for a moment, let's consider that statement. Can she really mean she has put in place no system for determining what she must see? She describes a process she allowed to stay in place for four long years that apparently is like drinking from a fire hose. No, that would be 1.43 fire hoses.

Sheherazad Ja'Afari, a U.N. based press attache in New York for the Syrian mission to the UN, exposes more about the American media and its capacity to be influenced by 'liberal guilt' in one email than conservative news sites could accomplish in a year.

Last night, hackers associated with the loose collective 'Anonymous' leaked the emails from the inboxes of 78 staffers from the mail server of the Syrian Ministry of Presidential Affairs, revealing some interesting observations about the American media.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has rejected a one-year delay in regulations setting standards for event data recorders - the so-called "black boxes" - in U.S. vehicles.

Beginning Sept 1, all new passenger vehicles sold with the devices will have to have programming that collects data in the seconds leading up to a crash. The cost to manufacturers won't be much of an issue since 91.6 percent of new vehicles sold in the United States already have a "black box." The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers - a trade group representing GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Volkswagen and seven other automakers - supported making the devices mandatory in 2010 but recently asked NHTSA to delay the recording requirement until next September.

The electronics retailer's sponsorship of a CAIR event in Minnesota has galvanized opposition.

A former Marine who served in Beirut in 1982-1983 and Iraq in 2003 looks into the camera and declares, "On behalf of myself and my family, we will no longer conduct business at Best Buy." He cuts his card in half. The Marine joined over 8,000 others who have signed a petition to boycott Best Buy over the company's financial support for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. The federal government designated CAIR as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a charity discovered to be a front for Hamas.

Mentioning the word 'chemtrails' on a public bus or Facebook is bound to earn you a few eye rolls from eavesdroppers and skeptical family members.

However, while skepticism - regardless of the source - isn't exactly the worst thing in the world, it appears that those who believe strongly in the idea that the U.S. government is spraying dangerous chemicals into the atmosphere may have been onto something after all.

US Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta has warned that the United States faces a possible 'Cyber Pearl Harbor' attack by foreign computer hackers.

Is the risk level really so high? In order to estimate the risk of an attack, you have to understand your enemy. There are various players behind the online attacks, with completely different motives and with different techniques. If you want to effectively defend against attacks, you have to be able to estimate who is most likely going to attack you, and why.

Tensions between Kim Dotcom and Prime Minister John Key were raised as the pair sparred at a parliamentary committee hearing on the government's proposed surveillance law, with Dotcom voicing his opposition to the controversial legislation.

The New Zealand government has proposed a change in the law to allow the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCJB) to provide support to the New Zealand Police, Defense Force and the Security Intelligence Service. Dotcom was voicing his opposition to the law and was the star of the show on the second day of hearings of the secretive Security and Intelligence Committee. "We should avoid blindly following the US into the dark ages of spying. In the end, the GCSB is just a subsidiary of the (US) National Security Agency and the US government calls all the shots," he told the committee.
