CONVERSATION 1SHOWLINKS

Former lobbyist for the cable and wireless industry -- and current FCC chairman -- Tom Wheeler is getting pushback on his proposed rules for net neutrality. Internet companies -- more than 100 of them -- signed a letter to the FCC yesterday saying they’re alarmed by the rules. Two FCC commissioners have publicly expressed “concerns” as well. And a standing protest is growing outside the FCC headquarters in washington. If reports are accurate, Wheeler’s proposed rules allow broadband providers to offer “paid prioritization” giving those who pay better connections in “last mile” service to homes and businesses. The Commission is scheduled to vote on the rules one week from today, on Thursday, May 15th. https://twitter.com/WaveOfAction/status/464118083146113024/photo/1

We told you Monday about an experimental beta feature in test versions of Google’s Chrome browser that hides URLs, showing instead just the root domain of the site. The purpose of the feature is mainly security. Today, a security training company called PhishMe found that if a URL is long enough -- over 98 characters -- the domain won’t display at all, which is far less secure than the current standard of displaying the full URL. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2152620/antiphishing-feature-fails-in-beta-chrome-browser-security-company-says.html
