The wireless service which we've been anticipating since last year was finally launched last week. Most of the leaked information, including the name of the project, turned out to be true. What we didn't expect though was the fact that it's an invite-only service, at least, for now.

Password Alert extension keeps Google Account safe from phising

Internet technology may be advancing but people will only be susceptible to hacks. Phising, hacking, and whatever those evil geniuses could think of will also advance, unfortunately.
