Yahoo’s Terry Semel Getting $1 Salary

CNET reports that Yahoo CEO, Terry Semel will follow the path of the Google-guys and reduce his salary to just $1.

Attorney General Wants Internet Companies to Keep Your Data

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Justice Department is meeting with internet companies such as Google, AOL, Microsoft and Verizon and asking them to keep up to two years of your personal data.

Official reasons for the request include child pornography and terrorism investigations, but the door is open for the data to be used for any criminal investigation.
