Trump Justice Department Crosses New Line, Charges Assange With Publishing U.S. Secrets
Daniel Leal-Olivas/GettyIn a stunning escalation of the Trump administration's war on the press, the Justice Department has indicted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for revealing government secrets under the Espionage Act. It's the first time a publisher has been charged under the World War I-era law.The indictment charges Assange with 16 counts of receiving or disclosing material leaked by then-Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning in 2009 and 2010. The charges invoke broad provisions of the Espionage Act that make it a crime to disclose or retain any defense information knowing it "could be used to injure" the U.S. The act has no exception for reporters or publishers, but prior administrations have balked at invoking the law against journalists for fear of colliding with the First Amendment. The Justice Department immediately sought to draw a distinction between Assange and the press in a briefing for reporters announcing the new indictment."The department takes seriously the role of journalists in our democracy and we thank you for it," said John Demers, head of the department's National Security Division. "It has not and never has been the department's policy to target them for reporting. But Julian Assange is no journalist." Demers cited WikiLeaks' publication of the names of U.S. government sources, saying it endangered people in China, Iran, and Syria.WikiLeaks on Twitter called the prosecution "the end of national security journalism and the

Windows 10's latest Insider preview gives Task Manager a simple, stellar storage enhancement
On Wednesday, Windows Insider preview build 18898 revealed a small but exciting Task Manager improvement coming to a future version of Windows 10: The Performance tab will tell you if a disk is a solid-state drive or a slower mechanical hard drive. 

The ability to distinguish between SSD and HDD "is particularly helpful in cases where you have multiple disks listed, so you can differentiate between them," the announcement post says. Indeed, that's the very reason I'm so enthusiastic about the addition. Storage drives frequently outlive PC builds, so my DIY Franken-system is loaded with a variety of drive types from past machines. (And hey, storage-stuffed SSDs are only getting cheaper.) Currently, Task Manager only labels each with its assigned drive letter.
