More Evidence HTTPS will soon rule the World

I've blogged a few times ( [1] , [2]) now on how HTTP is going away and will soon be replaced by HTTPS.

I thought it was worthy to mention a few other big names making the same push.

REDDIT: Recently announced they'll move all site and services to HTTPS-only by the end of 2016.
BING: Recently announced that this summer they'll start making HTTPS their standard.
WHITE HOUSE: Recently announced that all federal agencies and departments are instructed move publicly accessible Web sites and services to HTTPS-only by the end of 2016.
APPLE: Recently published guidance for developers explaining the inclusion of Application Transport Security, a protocol that allows developers to force secure connections to specific domains from their apps.

This is all very exciting news and pushes home the idea that the migration to HTTPS is real and coming to your neck of the woods soon. You should start planning out your migration if you haven't already.
