Tech titans have come together to form the Reform Government Surveillance coalition to ensure that the government is remaining within the law in regards to its surveillance efforts.

While the government auto bailout still looms, it is estimated that by bailing out General Motor (GM) and Chrysler 1.5 million jobs were saved.
