Submission + - Lavabit forced to shut down

clorkster writes:

I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit. After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations. I wish that I could legally share with you the events that led to my decision. I cannot. I feel you deserve to know what’s going on--the first amendment is supposed to guarantee me the freedom to speak out in situations like this. Unfortunately, Congress has passed laws that say otherwise. As things currently stand, I cannot share my experiences over the last six weeks, even though I have twice made the appropriate requests.

No doubt this has much to do with Snowden's use of the provider

Submission + - Fiddler Gets Financial Backing (

clorkster writes: Telerik has just acquired Fiddler. Even more exciting is that Fiddler’s creator, Eric Lawrence, will come over from Microsoft to join the team fulltime. For those of you who don’t know, Fiddler is a web debugging proxy which logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer or device and the Internet. Telerik has committed keeping Fiddler free and to making further investments into the tool. If you want to vote on the first improvements to be targeted, go to the fiddler website (make sure Ghostery is disabled).

Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Best mobile phone solution without data plan 2

clorkster writes: I am looking to upgrade my mobile phone. I have always bought the cheapest possible phone with the least features since I only use it to make calls and text. Further, I am opposed to paying for internet access twice and my home access is certainly more important and necessary. I am now running into the issue that my phone is too archaic to receive text messages from newer smart phones (they somehow become picture messages). Any thoughts on a good smart phone without data plan or an almost smart phone solution?
