Join Diggnation this week in their stories of vomit, viruses and conception! Plus, the hottest current stories around including Google's 10% cash staff raises, Microsoft blasted for offering free antivirus software, and a dude catches a giant 100lb crazy Piranha!
In an apparent move to stave off defections to competitors, Google announced it is giving all its employees a $1,000 cash bonus and a raise of 10 percent, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Jeremy Wade is known for his show on Animal Plant, 'River Monsters'. But what might get the 52-year old wrangler some more attention was his recent catch in the Congo River.
Two security software makers are complaining about Microsoft using its update service to deliver its free antivirus software to Windows users who don't have such protection on their computers. No, it's not 1998. And we're talking about allowing customers to choose whether they want the software, rather than bundling a particular browser - say Internet Explorer - on Windows.
When burying a story, the story will remain visible with the 'Buried' label on top of it. Simply hover over the story and the label will hide so that you can continue interacting with the story. Note, you can still save or comment on stories that you've buried, but you can't Digg something once you've buried it so make sure you use some discretion when burying. We've also removed the "Report" link from permalink pages. This was intentional, as burying a story also flags the story for review so our team can remove content that violates our terms of service.
Google isn't going to share its data with just any company-not anymore, at least. The search giant, known for promoting the open web, is getting stern with its data, especially where it relates to Facebook, reports Reuters. Google is blocking data access to its Gmail and Android contacts lists to any company that refuses to give open access back to Google. In essence, the search company is no longer giving away its data like a charitable person; it expects a gift in return.

Thanks again to Ford for sponsoring the show this week. The Ford folks have been nice enough to leave a Fiesta with us all summer and we've shown you a bunch of the features! The Fiesta has technology that would put many more expensive cars to shame: It comes loaded with all kinds of stuff like send to sync that allows you stream audio/calls, in car diagnostics, hands free everything, etc. Microsoft actually just released a new version of the Microsoft Embedded Automotive platform. Thanks again to Ford!
Alex's still rollin' with the HP Envy 14 with HP Beats Audio. It's got a solid laser etched magnesium casing and is powered by the Intel Core i5 processor and is thin and light which means extreme performance you can take with you. It won't blink when it comes to playing the latest game, watching an HD movie, or managing a massive music library. And it even comes with a private VIP support hotline with a dedicated help desk.
