Backup Complete

Standard

I have backed up all my documents and most of my pictures to Google Drive and Google Plus Pictures. I now feel more secure and I think it will be nice to have them wherever I go. The price of backing up isn’t much at all and I wanted to get those documents in multiple places. I recommend to everyone have a backup solution that works for your individual needs. All the digital content we produce is important and having them stored properly is a must.

US taps links to Google, Yahoo data centers: report

The US National Security Agency has tapped into key communications links from Yahoo and Google data centers around the world, the Washington Post reported Wednesday. The Post, citing documents obtained from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and interviews with officials, said the program can collect data at will from hundreds of millions of user accounts, including from Americans. The report said the program dubbed MUSCULAR, operated jointly with NSA’s British counterpart GCHQ, indicated that the agencies can intercept data flows from the fiber-optic cables used by the US Internet giants. A graphic in the document suggested that the interception at Google came at a point between the public Internet and Google “cloud” servers.

(My Take: Stop that NSA. Bad, bad. Go to your room!.)
