Batman V Superman - New Trailer's Big Reveal

The new Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer reveals a pretty big plot point (you can view the trailer below if you don't seeing mind the spoiler), and it's quite a marketing contrast to the Star Wars trailers that have been released thus far. The Force Awakens trailers and TV spots have shown quite a bit of footage, but very little in terms of the actual plot.

The first Batman V Superman trailer followed much the same pattern; a general theme (Bruce Wayne/Batman pissed off at Superman's part in the loss of life and destruction of parts of Metropolis in Man of Steel), accompanied by some footage that contained some puzzling images (such as Superman bowing before Lex Luthor). 

However, the new trailer seems more like one of those most-of-the-plot-in-condensed-form kind of trailers we so often see these days. It is shown that Superman and Batman put their differences aside to confront a common enemy after their bout of fisticuffs (which has always been a generally accepted plot point), but then the big baddie is also revealed too - with 3 months to go till the March 2016 release.

VPN Use Is Up, Up, Up

Since the repeal of the Broadband Consumer Privacy Rules, VPN use and traffic is rather predictably spiking, according to many VPN providers. VPNs are not the b-all and end-all of privacy though, and indeed the usual cretins have stepped in to provide shady VPN services that may actually sell on user data.

Also remember:
ISPs still track your location data and DNS records, even if you're using a VPN. Similarly, a VPN doesn't stop a company from using on-device snoopware to track you (remember Carrier IQ?). Neither will it stop ISPs from charging you a premium for privacy (something both AT&T and Comcast have already experimented with). Nor will a VPN stop a company from using your credit score to provide worse customer service (something CableONE has crowed about). DSL Reports

Microsoft's Mild Mea Culpa Over Windows 10 Obscure Upgrade "Choice"

In a cleansing act before the turn of the year, a Microsoft bigwig has admitted that they may have gotten a little carried away in their zeal to upgrade as many users as possible to Windows 10.
Specifically, Chief Marketing Officer Chris Capossela referred to the upgrade notification that appeared to be deliberately deceptive in the way it handled a users response. If a user clicked the red "X" at the top right of the notice, that closed the dialog box but went ahead and installed the upgrade anyway.
To actually not accept the upgrade, you had to click a link in the notification window itself. Not a few users would come back later and find their system upgraded to Windows 10, or in the process of doing so, when they thought they had expressed their wish not to do so. "Within a couple of hours of that hitting the world, with the listening systems we have, we knew that we had gone too far and then, of course, it takes some time to roll out the update that changes that …

pCloud Cloud Storage On Linux

As a cheapskate user of the Dropbox free plan, I was looking to see if there was another provider that offered a little more free storage than the 2GB from Dropbox (I actually have 2.5GB, due to a couple of bonus offers).
After a bit of research, I came up with Swiss-based pCloud: it has a client for Linux, as well as Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. The free tier offers 10GB of Cloud storage with no file size limits, which is fantastic for my (pretty basic) needs. You can set up your account first from the pCloud website, or during the client install process.
