Facebook is a Ponzi Scheme.

I'm currently at the DLD Conference in Munich, Germany, which is host to a whole lot of tech luminaries, executives, startups, press and investors alike. The organization has provided every attendee with access to a public WiFi network dubbed DLDpublic, and lo and behold, looks like many of them haven't taken any measures to prevent the above-described hijacking from happening.
Next time you're at an event with an open WiFi network, you might want to consider using a secure VPN to connect to the Internet anyway -- you never know who's sniffing.
Starting today we'll provide you with the ability to experience Facebook entirely over HTTPS.
