Spotify v. Pure Music

Oh my furry ears and whiskers

What about non-subscription options for listening to albums, such as myspace?

I 'discovered' myspace, where, without logging in I can listen to albums without ads, though I'm not sure whether that's down to Firefox and Adblock Plus or not. It's not high rate audio nor can I save playlists without logging in, but it beats paying £5 per month. Are there other options?

Hackers break SSL encryption used by millions of sites

A bonanza for Microsoft as users move from XP to Windows 7?

If TLS 1.1 and 1.2 are unavailable on XP (and Microsoft and others don't change this), does this mean that XP has to be scrapped when this exploit becomes widespread? Will we have to move our XP boxes to Windows 7 (or another OS)? Presumably we can't fix the issue with Opera (or a fixed Firefox)?

I'd have thought that most people wouldn't trust their ISPs (and others in the IP connection chain) not to listen in to their banking sessions. So most people would want to move to TLS 1.1 and 1.2, which means a lot of work for those running SSL sites and new OS's for machines that can't move to TLS 1.1 and 1.2.
