    The mad, dangerous world of hacking

    Russia is led by a master spy who rarely needs to dirty his hands. During the Cold War years, this master spy was rarely in the firing line, although he was always well-prepared for facing all kinds of dangers. He is also an innovator. Recently, the Socialist-led Greek government almost thumbed their noses at the European Union, falsely believing that this spy was about to help them out of debt. He recently demonstrated what strong leadership is capable of during lean times. Ex-KGB spy Vladimir Putin is firing over 100,000 government workers in order to cut costs and roll back…

Switching targets with hackers

Switching targets with hackers

Aug 1, 2015

Recreational shooters and hunters should be shuddering in their boots. They should also be wondering whether they are about to become targets rather than the other way around. Charlton Heston and his National Rifle Association should be taking note of this. The world of guns, pistols, rifles and live ammunition may just become more dangerous. That could happen if hackers are allowed to continue getting away with murder. Some hackers are quite happy to spend time and money perfecting their art. With a sick sense of accomplishing something simply because they can, they may smile occasionally knowing that they continue…

The rise of the death star

The rise of the death star

Jul 31, 2015

Soon after warnings were  fired about the dangers of building robotic weapons and soldiers, comes this news. While the world’s military superpower keeps a hawk-eye view on perceived renegade nations’ abilities to build nuclear weapons, the nation which once fought a World War on the side of the Nazis fired a laser to equal Earth’s current power consumption. Few people noticed because the shot lasted for only one pica-second. A team of researchers in Osaka, Japan claim that the current energy used in this laser beam would only be powerful enough to run a microwave for just two seconds. Nevertheless, the claim…

Another Earth discovered

No sooner had scientist Stephen Hawking and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner begun their quest to find extra-terrestrial life, another Earth i.e. a planet with similar features as Earth was discovered. Hawking is fielding questions from alien-hunting enthusiasts on Reddit, whereas it is assumed that Milner has provided the total sum of more than one hundred billion dollars in funding for this adventure. NASA, the space agency behind this exciting discovery, has decided to name this large exoplanet Kepler-452b after its Kepler mission. NASA’s associated administrator from the Science Mission Directorate John Grusfeld announced that they had discovered an exoplanet that closely resembles our…

In the manual of effective sales techniques to drive up sales and generate profits, it is one of the oldest tricks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. It all depends on the product being sold and how well it does with its consumers. It also depends on how good the product is. If it is a bad one, or merely functional, recipients of company gifts may want to look elsewhere for alternatives. For now though, the sales pitch tells customers that there is no other software package like it. The pitch is being heard by mostly loyal customers or PC…

Twitter looking to make big changes

Twitter looking to make big changes

A conversation doing the rounds on Twitter feeds is that handling the network’s social media settings remains unnecessarily complex. However, Twitter’s casually attired interim CEO Jack Dorsey might beg to differ. Hiding his frustrations well behind his hoodie and beard, Dorsey is not happy with Twitter’s downcast quarterly earnings which actually exceeded market analysts’ expectations. So far, Twitter shares have plummeted ten percent on the quarterly announcements. Dorsey and his Chief Financial Officer Anthony Noto gave honest reviews of their balance sheets. They stated that it would be quite some time before Twitter is able to reverse a rapid turnaround…

Free HBO from Verizon

Free HBO from Verizon

Customers know that when free viral deals are dangled before their eyes it is either too good to be true, or there is a catch. The catch here is that ultimately the service will not be free going forward. Account or credit card details will still need to be processed in the meantime. However, there’s a twist in the tale. This offering is for thirty days on a trial basis. If internet surfers don’t like what they see they can always cancel. The best news is that there is very little not to like about HBO and its popular premium content…

Internet.org will get people online faster: Facebook

When users first sign up, Facebook’s wide range of social media services and access to news feeds and pages of preferred publishers are free. However, when users upgrade to higher levels of service, a fee becomes obligatory. Regular Facebook users must have already noticed the addition of this app on their mobile devices. It is called internet.org, a term not easily forgotten and quickly called up during a conventional search on the internet. Users may have noticed that sometimes they need to wait a few minutes before a search engine appears on their interface. By converting users to paid up plans, Facebook claims…
