 @troopyeyes PhotoCrypt is just slightly different from Google's 2-factor authentication and the article doesn't explain how it's going to solve any problem.

 @troopyeyes  @aaronklein So how is CryptoPhoto a solution to that?

His point is, if you are a phishing website you won't find his phone.

I am not getting it. You describe in length that 2-factor authentication doesn't work for several reasons and then you say Drake has the solution, but it's nothing else then a slightly different 2-factor approach, with the same flaws.

Aside from the fact that your assessment of the situation is utterly wrong, this whole article is obviously just another punch of yours at the Samwers.

 

What is your agenda that makes you so obsessed with the Samwers? Did you decide to go for war when they declined your interview in Berlin a few years ago?

This became such a mess by clueless journalists over-analyzing it. Seriously.

Sarah Lacy, this article is wrong on so many accounts, I don't even want to start commenting on them. Just regarding the headline: Saverin has been living in Singapore for, em, how many years? Are you saying he is doing this for saving taxes?

 

Sad for PandoDaily, most of your readers aren't even getting the point that Saverin is very much going to pay taxes for the profit he made up *until now*. Just not for the profit *from now*. A good article would at least make sure its reader understand what is happening instead of just seeding hate.

 

One more thing, why don't you at least mention in your article that Michael Arrington moved to Washington right before the TC sale? Oh, of course, that was because Seattle is so beautiful, not for taxes.

You are missing the comparison I made. What he is doing is equivalent to someone buying 4 billion stock now outside of the US. Because he is paying taxes for every profit up *until now* but not from *now on*.

 

Expecting him to pay taxes on the income after the IPO would be similar to expecting his family to pay taxes to Brazil based on the income they are making on their money which they originally had brought from Brazil to the US.

 @DavidCarcamo But it's equivalent: He could sell the stock right after the IPO, pay the taxes for it in the US, then rebuy the stock in Singapore and pay all future taxes in Singapore. Why should he keep his US citizenship and continue pay taxes in the US if he lives in Singapore.

So if I buy 4 billion worth of Facebook stock now and sell it for 8 billion later, do you expect me to pay taxes on that in the US even though I bought these stocks outside of the US while not being a residence of the US?

I wonder if this has something to do with the difference in strategy. Another razor-sharp analysis from Sarah Lacy.

Btw, talking about shady business practices. What is that pop-up banner at the bottom of PandoDaily offering "a whole new way to use Facebook"? Since it's a bottom bar it appears like an official PandoDaily thing. Makes it trustworthy, or so I thought. A click on it initiates an automatic download of an application without any further confirmation and takes you to a page resembling the design of Facebook. Except it isn't from Facebook.

OMG. You are so far off and still applauding yourself. This was part of the takeover agreement already. He is not kicked out, he wants to leave. Or do you think Marc Samwer wants to spend the best time of his life at someone else's company?
