UK Intelligence officers based at GCHQ have been spying on us all since forever, but Edward Snowden has confirmed that the British Government has also been closely monitoring our YouTube video views, Tweets and Facebook Likes, without consent, since 2012.

Although Netflix knows we all love a good binge, it also realizes we have lives to lead and so has enabled an off-switch for the feature that automatically plays the next episode in a series. I guess that could be handy for some, what with the second season of 'House of Cards' making its debut in just under 3 weeks. These and other stories of the last few days in video and cable land, from ReelSEO.
