Tech Giants Demand New Limits on Government Surveilance | TIME.com: "The biggest names in tech launched their staunchest effort yet to change the way the U.S. and other governments collect user data from the Internet. The heads of eight of America’s largest tech companies — a roster that includes Google’s Larry Page, Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook — endorsed the campaign to call for new limits on government surveillance.
