Comcast Will Start Encrypting Emails, Follows Google's Advice

TheStreet (June 4, 2014) — Comcast has answered Google's call to email providers to use encryption to enhance users' security. On Tuesday, Google revealed its email traffic with other providers that remains encrypted and found than less than 1% of messages sent from Gmail to Comcast.net address remained encrypted. Google has been encrypting its Gmail messages since 2010, but it only remains that way if it's encrypted on both the send and receipt ends. Now, Comcast said it would begin encrypting its users' emails for security. Encryption means the data within the message is scrambled, making it more difficult for government surveillance or snoops to access the information. Video provided by TheStreet

Google Plans Deeper Energy Push With Tools For Utilities

TheStreet (June 11, 2014) — Google is planning to disrupt the US power delivery system by developing tools that can transmit and distribute electricity more efficiently.The internet giant runs the most popular search engine and itself is a huge consumer of electricity. It has been looking at ways to shakeup the utilities industry and it plans on doing this by developing software and hardware tools to better manage power lines. Google's in-house development group known as the Energy Access Team is led by Arun Majumdar. Majumdar came to Google as a top energy expert. He was the first director of the US Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy and was later nominated for the Under Secretary of DoE. He joined Google in 2012 to help the company to advance in the US power sales market, which is worth more than $363 billion. Google is not the first to tap the possibilities of energy management. Zurich based ABB and Munich based Siemens already offer tools that help allocating electricity, but Google engineers think they can do better. Just like Google disrupted smartphone market with android, it may now end up changing the way we get our electricity. Video provided by TheStreet
