In both the desktop and web version of Turbo Tax, you still download a ".tax" file that you then have to log into the government site and upload (known as Netfile). You do not file directly using the TurboTax software. So this will block both desktop and web-based TurboTax users.
The only information required to access NETFILE is your Date of Birth and your Social Insurance Number. But you probably don't want people get a hold of that information either. Or your bank account if it is included in the file you are uploading.

A number of readers have written in with stories related to today's permanent rollout of IPv6 by several major organizations. From the looks of it, for the 1% or so of end users with IPv6 support, everything is going smoothly. For those not so lucky to have IPv6 already, an anonymous reader writes with (mostly) good news: 60% of ISPs intend to enable IPv6 by the end of 2012. For business users, darthcamaro provides some words of caution: "...the Chief Security Officer of VeriSign doesn't think IPv6 should be turned on by a whole lot of people. The problem is network security devices in many cases don't scan IPv6. So if you turn IPv6 on, you're screwed.
'If you don't have that visibility into IPv6, you should probably consider explicitly disabling IPv6 on your systems until you can take a very concerted approach to enabling IPv6 in a secure manner,' McPherson said."
Yup, I see the same thing in my Google Chat history... 12/31/69, even for this morning's chat.
Not all days are 24 hours long (in local time, or if you have to deal with leap seconds).
Not all years are 365 days long.
February is not always 28 days long.

angry tapir writes "Touch specialist Synaptics is working on technologies that will allow touchscreens to mimic the feel of a physical keypad, in order to make smartphones easier to use, according to company technology strategist Andrew Hsu. The goal is to build a touchscreen with the tactile feedback of a keypad. Users should be able run their fingers over virtual keys and get the same sensation as a mechanical keypad gives, allowing them to feel where the buttons are, and then activate them by pushing down a little bit harder, according to Hsu."
