Mug – If you were thinking of spending a little less, you can find mugs with just about anything on them, including the periodic table of the elements, the chemical structure of the caffeine molecule and the structure of DNA, which features the catchy phrase, “Microbiologists have great DNA.”
All throughout, Snapchat’s biggest security problem remained — outsiders who figured out how to access the company’s supposedly secret APIs, and then inserted spam or created third-party apps. Some of those apps offered users a way to violate Snapchat’s terms of service by capturing and archiving Snaps routinely. When one of those apps, called Snapsaved, was hacked, the perpetrators posted over 90,000 picture and videos online. Even though Snapchat itself wasn’t directly victimized in what was dubbed The Snappening, Snapchat admits that the company should have been more proactive in stopping third-party services. And in our meeting, the executives reiterated their apology for that incident.
Credit reporting agency Equifax (NYSE:EFX) announced on Monday that an additional 2.5 million individuals were potentially compromised during the massive cyber breach earlier this year, bringing the grand total to 145.5 million.

GitHub has given you the power to use its social coding website without the distractions that so often clutter our internet life. At least, that’s the idea.
Jim Hanak, CEO at one of the newest charter schools, the Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School, said 176 students have joined the waiting list, and he expects to enroll 1,150 students before school starts in September. Hanak said kids love cyber schools because it enables them to learn at their own pace without distractions from changing classrooms or disruptive students. “Kids like using technology and the immediate feedback they get from interactive learning,” he said.
“If you take a look at the French election … we had become aware of Russian activity,” Rogers said in response to questions from senator Kirsten Gillibrand about the allegations of Russia hacking the Macron campaign. “We had talked to our French counterparts prior to the public announcements of the events publicly attributed this past weekend and gave them a heads-up: ‘Look, we’re watching the Russians, we’re seeing them penetrate some of your infrastructure.'”
Lawry admits this pricy vinyl won’t pad his investment portfolio, but he has no regrets. “If you’re going to spend tens of thousands of dollars on hardware, why wouldn’t you pay a few hundred for the software?” he asks. A recent salary cut, however, has forced Lawry to curb his vinyl excess. Still, if the right hot stamper came along, he says he wouldn’t hesitate pulling the trigger: “I’d be willing to pay $500 for the best copy of Aja.”
The first thing we did upon arrival (well, after walking up and down and around stairs in the convention center because I missed the ticket booth the first time) was to go to a Kids Comics Workshop led by cartoonist and educator Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg. She gave a few basic (but useful) pointers about speech bubbles, like writing the words before drawing the bubbles and making sure the first speaker’s bubble is higher up than the second speaker’s. There was time for kids to work on their own comics, and then put them on the projector to share with the audience. It was a small group, but my daughter had fun doing a six-panel cartoon about animals in the forest.
