The Securities and Exchange Commission is having some security problems of its own. About 4,000 agency employees, including several in Los Angeles, have been notified that their Social Security numbers and other payroll information were included in an unencrypted email, according to Drew Malcomb, a Department of Interior spokesman. The May 4 email was sent by a contractor at the department's National Business Center, which manages payroll, human resources and financial reporting for dozens of federal agencies, Malcomb said.

A California judge has ruled that Oracle Corp. is contractually obligated to continue developing software for Hewlett-Packard Co.'s Itanium-based servers. The decision Wednesday by Judge James P. Kleinberg in San Jose advances Hewlett-Packard's lawsuit to a jury trial to determine whether Oracle broke the contract and what, if any, damages should be awarded. Both sides have 15 days to file an objection to the decision, the judge said. The judge agreed with Hewlett-Packard that Oracle made a commitment to support Intel Corp.

At its most basic level, a 3-D printer is like an automated hot-glue gun programmed to spit out solid objects. The machines extrude layers of plastic into virtually any three-dimensional shape. Print whimsical garden statuary. Reproduce an anatomically correct heart with moving parts for your son's science project (actually, he could do that himself). Create a signature bookend, cookie cutter, necklace - anything. The buzz within the design world is that most homes could have one of these gadgets within 10 years.

Pushed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Obama administration may ask Congress for the power to snoop on more types of communication online. The timing couldn't be worse, given the outcry over the Justice Department secretly grabbing journalists' phone records and emails in its pursuit of government leakers. The bigger issue with what the FBI is seeking, though, is that it applies 20th century assumptions about surveillance to 21st century technologies. Congress passed the Wiretap Act in 1968 to give federal investigators the power to listen in on suspects' phone calls if they obtained a federal court's permission.

Is there an incestuous relationship here between Microsoft and hardware manufacturers? Microsoft sells only newest versions of software with limited backward compatibility. Companies must upgrade old machines with new software for compatibility. Employees complain new software on old machines runs too slow. By the time the old machines are replaced with new machines, there is yet a newer version of software. MICHAEL ERNSTOFF Los Angeles

One thing about cautionary tales -- the cautions just seem to proliferate as time marches on. That certainly seems to be the case with the Los Angeles Unified School District's increasingly fraught involvement with education by iPad. In the latest development documented by my indefatigable colleagues Howard Blume and Stephen Ceasar, it turns out that the district costs for the software on its thousands of student-friendly tablets could be $60 million a year higher than anticipated.
