I know to many, it is absurd, But let us look at it from this angle. It could happen to anyone; be it a white or black. She shouldn't have taken it too personal.  To me, THIS IS NOT RACISM.

Billionaire media mogul, Oprah Winfrey tells us all that she faced at a boutique in Switzerland. While she was in Switzerland to attend the wedding of her longtime Friend, Musician Tina Turner, she decided to go on a shopping in a Zurich boutique.She asked for a black handbag, but the clerk at the fashion store refused to show her the $38,000 handbag because she believes the billionaire media mogul can't afford it, claiming it's ''too expensive.''

''She said: ''No, no, you don't want to see that one. You want to see this one. Because that one will cost you a lot of money'' Winfrey quoted while appearing in a US TV program ''Entertainment tonight.''

However, the Swiss tourism and the boutique in question has since tender apologies to her on Friday, and pray her to visit Switzerland again.

Danger! Google Chrome security flaw allows unrestricted access to users passwords

Like Tim Berners-Lee posted on Twitter ''how to get all your big sisters passwords'', Google Chrome browser could put you in great risk. There is a security flaw in the highly touted seemingly secure browser, Google Chrome. Which allow anyone in possession of your computer to have access to passwords stored without having to use password to view them.

First to discovered this is one New Zealand Developer named Elliot Kember. His comment '' "In a world where Google promotes its browser on YouTube, in cinema pre-rolls, and on billboards, the clear audience is not developers. It's the mass market - the users. The overwhelming majority. They don't know it works like this. They don't expect it to be this easy to see their passwords. Every day, millions of normal, every-day users are saving their passwords in Chrome. This is not okay.". 
To make matters worst, Google developers were aware of the security flaw in Chrome browser, but simply said there was nothing they could do.

Chrome as we all know, is among the three most widely used web browsers worldwide.
