The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), would allow the government to access web users’ private data on suspicion of a cyber threat.
It would also allow easier information-sharing between security agencies and private web firms. So how does this apply to you? Well advocacy groups claim that the bill sole purpose is aimed at file-sharers, who they are and what content they are downloading and sharing. Not only these guys but average joes like me and you.
Details will be shared and monitored such as your online purchase, emails, sites visited and any interaction you have had with another person on line including social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook , Google Plus and many others.
Microsoft, AT&T and facebook are already supporters of bill They also raised concerns about the transparency of the act. Thankfully President Obama said he would veto the bill if it was passed.
We as citizens have a right to hold back information from the state and from government monitoring our actions online. This attitude that being able to hold your personal information is no longer important, but it is. Remember to show your support in the fight against CISPA.
We are against CISPA and we will never be in support or in favour of any similar legislation that comes our way.

Adi’s pick of the week was Microsoft Flight, there are a lot of games which are not a game but more of a simulator. This one is more of a game and aimed at gamers which are not flight simulator enthusiasts, but would enjoy flying a plane.
You get to fly smaller airplanes around Hawaii and enjoy the wonders of the islands. You can fly through various missions such as collecting tokens, flying through floating hoops or just landing a plane. If you don’t want to do any missions, there is also a free flight mode, where you can simply pick a plane and fly, no missions, no time constraints. Just be sure that you don’t run out of fuel!! You can also pay to unlock the hawaiian adventure pack which unlocks the rest of the hawaiian islands and gives you more planes.
Adi found it a lot of fun to play. That being said, Adi had a few difficulties getting to learn the basics. You can download Microsoft Flight for free from the Microsoft Flight website
