Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday opened its annual Microsoft in Education Global Forum by emphasizing the importance of student privacy and reaffirming its commitment to helping ensure that student data is never mined for advertising and marketing purposes. The opening keynote speech, which took place in front of an audience of 1,100, including innovative educators, school leaders and government officials from nearly 100 countries, also saw Microsoft highlight its end-to-end, best-in-class solutions with student success and career and college readiness at the forefront.
“Privacy concerns are holding educators back from making the most of modern technology and preparing students to succeed in today’s workplace. At the same time, many solutions being used in the classroom are unintentionally putting student data at risk,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president, Worldwide Education, Microsoft. “The private sector has a responsibility to give educators the tools and resources that inspire real learning and have a real impact, while ensuring privacy isn’t a barrier to bringing new and innovative technologies into the classroom. This is why Microsoft is committed to taking every measure it can to ensure student information remains safe around the world. We will not, under any circumstance, mine students’ data.”

AT&T and T-Mobile are in a fierce battle for gaining customers. This is good news for consumers in a Capitalist Country. The consumer will be lured by pricing plans and which company, “Offers the Most,” for the buck. That’s what lead me to switch to T-Mobile, but buyer be warned, there are some things to beware!
It seems T-Mobile through the first punch in this fight. Shortly after the FCC blocked the purchase of T-Mobile by AT&T, I found T-Mobile ads outlining how easy it is to switch. Essentially, they were promoting the fact that T-Mobile and AT&T both use GSM Phones. Therefore, an AT&T device will work on the T-Mobile Network (And vice versa)! But let me start with that aspect first. It is not easy to switch at all. The saleswoman at my Local T-Mobile store explained an incorrect process to me. She sold me the line before I could switch the phone over. Then I was left trying to procure an Unlock Code to use the T-Mobile SIM Card.

The Government is Gambling with Tax Payer Dollars! That's the sentiment felt by a lot of Americans regarding the GM Bailout. Closing the deal that kept General Motors afloat, left the US Treasury with 500 million shares of the company. A gamble? Yes in deed. Surely the hopes were the stock would rebound enough to repay the bailout.
GM stock closed at a new record of $49.90 at the day of the sale. The stock had quite a swing this year! Echoing a swinging 52 week range this year of $24.40 - $41.17. Sale of the stock occurred at intervals, with the most recent sale ending the remaining 31.1 million shares. The result is that the company remained intact but the people lost $10B. Still it is estimated that only 1.5 million jobs were saved. A gross number offsets the cost of saving these jobs. The numbers speak volumes regarding how grossly detached politicians are from business and, "what makes sense". We can only hope that GM remains intact and profitable with growing jobs in the future to rebound the loss sustained.
The following statement is attributable to General Motors Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson:
