A recent post on Silicon Beat detail how Google and Yahoo are working on a “spy-free” email service that will us PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) encryption to keep prying eyes such as your government, cyber-criminals, your employer, even Yahoo and Google themselves, from being able to capture and read your email.
We will be keeping an eye on this development, a report further news when it is available. You can read more on Silicon Beat or this Wall Street Journal article. You will need to be a WSJ subscriber to read the entire article, though. Silly WSJ!Share
