Happy Friday, friends! It's been a long week, and we're ready to blow off some steam. We'll be hanging out in the discussion below for the rest of the day, ready to talk about tech, NBA finals, government spying, plain old normal person spying, you name it. Let's have some fun.
You might also notice that this post exists over at Whitenoise, a sacred ground where Gizmodo readers and their friends and friends of friends can hang out all day, every day. It's like a 24-hour open thread, owned and operated by the commentariat, and everybody's welcome. You can—and should—post here as often as you like.
Okay, on to the conversationalizing. Play nice!
