Google and Facebook: The Face of Internet Evil?

“For the nature of man’s heart is evil from his youth,” the Bible tells us – and to that we may add, perhaps, the internet’s, too. We gave it life – and what did it give us in return? Pop-up ads, viruses, and unlimited supplies (or at least offers) of viagra.

Internet Weather Report

The pundits tell us that the future of computing is bright and sunny – but in reality, the weather isn’t as clear as they would have you believe.
