In a rare and brave move, a Beijing-based liberal think tank said on Tuesday that Chinas internet censors had violated laws by shutting down its website and all of its social media accounts.

YAHOO said Monday its US$4.8 billion deal to sell its core internet assets to US telecom titan Verizon has been delayed several months. The closing originally set for this quarter has been pushed into next quarter due to "work required to meet closing conditions," the California online pioneer said in a statement, adding that it was "working expeditiously to close the transaction as soon as practicable." The news came in an earnings release showing Yahoo swung to a profit of US$162 million in the final three months of last year. The deal with Verizon, which would end Yahoo's run of more than 20 years as an independent company, has been thrown into doubt following disclosures of two huge data breaches. Yahoo said Monday it is hustling to ramp up security as it grapples with the aftermath of epic hacks. "Our top priority continues to be enhancing security for our users," Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer said.

January 1, 2017 isn't just New Year's Day… it's also the Internet's 34rd birthday. On January 1, 1983, all the computer systems on the ARPANET, created by the Department of Defense in 1969, were required to switch over to the TCP/IP network protocol that it still uses today, giving birth to the Internet as we know it. But how well do we know it? Onetime computer programmer (and Jeopardy! computer victim) Ken Jennings is here to do a complete systems update on all the Digital Age spam in your mental inbox. The Debunker: Was eBay Founded as a Way to Trade Pez Dispensers? In 1995, Pamela Wesley was a collector of Pez candy dispensers looking to add to her collection. You or I might hit garage sales and flea markets, but Wesley was lucky enough to be engaged to Pierre Omidyar, a computer programmer and early Internet entrepreneur. Omidyar decided to build a website where Wesley could trade Pez to her heart's content, and within two years, he was running AuctionWeb, one of the fastest growing sites on the Internet.

President Trump's newly appointed head of the FCC looks set to abolish the net neutrality rules, meaning that the federal government will no longer regulate the Internet. Ajit Pai, a fierce critic of the net neutrality rules, was selected by Trump to chair the Federal Communications Commission. Thehill.com reports: Pai has had good relations with congressional Republicans and he will be closely watched as he works with House Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) and his Senate counterpart, Chairman John Thune, (R-S.D.) to undo the many tech and telecom regulations passed under the Obama administration. But some believe that Pai could also be at odds with the Trump administration on some issues. Pai is generally lauded by the industry for his anti-regulatory stance, leading many to believe that he will look favorably at the proposed AT&T-Time Warner merger if it comes under FCC scrutiny.

(credit: Fox61 ) A Connecticut veteran who was treasurer at both an American Legion and VFW post was sentenced Friday to 2.5 years in prison. Local media said Frederick Brown, 72, of Mansfield, spent $96,000 on Internet porn over a three-year period. According to local media , Brown stopped pilfering funds after realizing the veterans' posts were running out of cash. He stole as much as $144,000 in all. Local media said the defendant got " sucked in " to viewing live online pornography in which women became more provocative when viewers tipped more online tokens. "Mr. Brown said that he basically got 'sucked in' and continued to do it because it was fun," according to a warrant . "Mr. Brown stopped... buying tokens in September 2014 because he started running out of money, and he was worried that someone else in the post would find out." Read 1 remaining paragraphs | Comments

(ANALYSIS) It seemed to come almost out of nowhere. The United States usually protects Israel from critical resolutions at the UN Security Council. However, in a dramatic move, the US abstained and a resolution criticizing recent settlement activity was passed by the 15-member body. But this was not the end. John Kerry, Obama’s former Secretary of State, gave a lengthy address a few days later. Kerry’s speech was not so different from the statements of previous leaders, both Democrats and Republicans. He defended Israel’s existence, and denounced almost all forces actively opposing Israel. However, Kerry harshly criticized specific Israeli policies. While Kerry’s speech defending the UN abstention uttered the standard, mildly critical, pro-Israeli talking points, it did contain some words that, taken out of context and spread throughout the internet, could and did indeed make a lot of Israelis and Zionists very angry.
