Difference? Probably no drivers and no support for wireless is needed from computer? No need to enter wifi passwords etc as it's preconfigured in this device. Would be nice way to provide quick access to network at some meeting or to a friend at your home? Just connect USB and you will have the connection ready in a second! ... if it's USB can act in device/slave mode. Not sure about that.

I actually use it (Stevia syrup) as sugar replacement at my work place. It tastes... it tastes. It forces you to use less. I only use one drop per coffee. That way I can't taste it too much but it certainly makes the drink sweeter. What I asked is if anybody can give links or whatever to similar studies about using Stevia as sweetener.

Submission + - Silent Circle Raises $30 Million, Moves HQ to Switzerland (

wiredmikey writes: Silent Circle, a startup providing private encrypted communications solutions, announced on Wednesday that it has raised $30 million in funding and that it was moving its global headquarters from the Caribbean island of Nevis to Switzerland.

According to the company, it will use the new injection of cash to accelerate its growth and momentum in the secure communications market and to meet the “overwhelming demand” for Blackphone – its fully encrypted smartphone designed to thwart snooping governments and other attackers.

"The move to Switzerland is extremely important for us as a company serving a global customer base. Switzerland's strong privacy laws, legendary neutrality, and economic business advantages will allow us the ability to scale to Silent Circle's rapid adoption by businesses, governments and individual pro-sumers around the world," said Vic Hyder, Silent Circle Chief of Revenue.

Last year, Silent Circle shut down its encrypted email service to avoid becoming a target after the US government subpoenaed the records of Lavabit.

SilentCircle was co-founded by former Navy SEAL sniper Mike Janke, and PGP creator Phil Zimmermann, and has created a platform for encrypted text, mobile phone, video teleconferencing and file transfer services through a secure, proprietary network and set of applications.
