How much is your data worth? So much that Google is paying Apple $15 billion to be the default search engine in the iPhone and other Apple devices. Google is paying $10/year per device, to get you to use a 'free' search engine.
Prediction: a ransomware affiliate will lock all of X company’s smart TVs in the wild with a firmware update and company X will cave under consumer pressure to a massive ransom.

Linux completes 30 years. It was on this date in 1991 that Linus Torvalds announced the first version. He actually wanted to call it as Freax, but his friend Ari Lemmke named it as Linux, which he accepted. Version 1.0 would later be released in March 1994.

This is what Adobe Photoshop will be able to do a couple of years. Draw a crappy sketch of how to place things, WRITE WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE, and in a minute or two you’ll get your image back. I think it’s rather awesome. Works today. Would need an UI to package it together.

From personal experience: Hive is a colossal pain to recover from. Essentially their cryptographic scheme involves 100 different RSA keys ranging from 1024 to 5120 bits, a 10 MB one-time pad, as well as a custom stream cipher. Even if the ransom is paid, expect a slow recovery. twitter.com/BleepinCompute…

Latest version of Microsoft Word opened a 29-year old DOC file...and everything worked. Microsoft has amazing backward compatibility.
The story here is that Facebook actively reads conversations on Messenger, not that Russian spies were talking to American journalists. Especially cold comfort that the security team itself “decided” not to actively monitor conversations more than they already had. twitter.com/sheeraf/status…
