Companies including Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and AOL are working on a system to help prevent users from receiving malicious emails. The group’s goal is to make email a more secure messaging system, where sensitive data like bank information can be transmitted safely. In other news, hope isn’t lost if you used to store personal files. Prosecutors are working on a deal with the companies storing the data and hope to release your files in the near future. If no deal is made, the data could be gone as early as this week. And finally, AT&T announced that the highly anticipated Samsung Note would be available February 19th. The 4G LTE smartphone has a huge 5.3-inch screen and includes a stylus that converts your handwriting to text. It costs $300 with a two-year contract and pre-orders begin February 5th.
