Catching up from yesterday, which was so busy I didn’t have time to actually read anything other that product documentation (again). Here are a few links from this morning.
- Montana State University has warned more than 4,500 people of a computer security lapse.
- “If you compare the womenâ€™s magazines of today with their counterparts of 50 years ago, youâ€™ll find it impossible to miss how dramatically different they areâ€”and how daily life has transformed along with them.” Link
- In honor of Independence Day, here’s a Fox News list of tech items made in the U.S.A.
- In addition to shuttering Reader, Google has also apparently dropped RSS feeds from Google Alerts. (Turns out those RSS feeds were generated from Google Reader.) Of course, most people are finding that Google Alerts don’t really work anymore anyhow.
- Also: “Google Reader is just the latest casualty of the war that Facebook started, seemingly accidentally: the battle to own everything.” – Marco Ament
- And finally a new Pew study shows that 6 percent of online adults are Reddit users.
I doubt strongly that I’ll post a roundup for Independence Day, but we’ll see how it goes.
