Yeah, because "HTML5" is such a great success
Very creative indeed

Well, they would of course have access to the content before it's encrypted. I don't trust someone else to perform the encryption for me, even on the client side, after everything that happened. But then, even your own OS, all the software that's on your machine, there are sooo many parties involved with so many affiliations, objectives, incentives. If it's not NSA that's peeking through your SSL connection, then it's probably China that bought off your antivirus manufacturer or a Russian hacker who injected something vile in an open source library that covers 90% of the internet connected world or someone we haven't even heard of who hardwired all keyboards straight from in the manufacturing plant to phone home your input. Hell, they could even be peeking through the window.
If they want to read it, they will. If you desperately want to avoid it, don't use Yahoo of GMail in the first place, not even with "encryption". I'm cynical enough to think this will not prevent them from reading your content, Yahoo will have a similar gain by accessing your content (why would they start the service in the first place) and they don't seem to mind.
Or you could, like, not post it to social media in the first place.
How far does this token reach, will you zap everyone's memory who read your post too?
What if they capture a screenshot and repost?
Seriously take some responsibility for your own actions instead of blaming someone else when you screw up.
Cutesy eh? I like the sound of that. Would give a nice, hip ring to my app for filing tax returns.
> morale disaster
I think that's the plan. They want to give as many people as possible the motivation to leave on their own accord, saving them a lot of hassle and cost.
here's an astronomical whooooosh for you, sir
If you're looking for astronauts just let me know.
I might consider it.

...then you don't know enough about programming http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D... . For your own sake and sense of satisfaction I suggest you pick a new hobby or allow yourself some time (>10 years) to fully get acquainted with the subject.
> syncing with services like Google Drive can be a P.I.T.A.
Well, the desktop client let's you sync as a background process (it even runs as a service so you don't need to start it up manually).
Works like a charm and is very easy to set up IMHO. It also let's you manage the file permissions in a very clear way.
What I *do* find a P.I.T.A. is manually installing and configuring Apache / FTP on my local home computer and making sure it's not going to be a security vulnerability...
Instead of hosting a server at home you could upload it to a cloud storage service like Google Drive or something.
