Consumer Reports rated AT&T the worst US mobile provider in a survey of over 58,000 subscribers. Despite the poor marks, the iPhone 4 was tied in first place for handsets. Will the iPhone’s future availability on other carriers force AT&T to make improvements? I’m not holding my breath. In other news, you will not be surprised to learn that, according to Symantec’s newest report, 2010 is a record year for spam. 89.1% of all messages sent were either malware or spam attempts, up 1.4% from last year. With no end in sight for the termination of junk email, the doors are wide open for entrepreneurs in the security sector. And finally, Microsoft will include tracking protection in the release of Internet Explorer 9. The new feature will allow users to create a list of sites that cannot track them. But, are the sites you visit frequently the ones you should be worried about blocking? The short answer is no.
