Don’t let anybody tell you that RSS feeds are dead. The oldest way to get a decent news feed that is presented with consistency to your political alignments can only be achieved with these types of apps these days. There is a notable difference between a newsfeed from an RSS reader and the news offered by social networks. Is almost like choosing to get dinner on a fancy buffet restaurant or just plain old McDonalds. Sure, in both cases you get to decide what you want, but the buffet offers a lot of options you get to see firsthand without filters.
In The Age of Communications, Getting Informed Takes Hard Work
The way the world is running these days, there are a lot of ways to approach news. Social networks certainly seem to make things easier, but the mix of social views and algorithms lead to bias. Just take a moment to see how (more…)
Not so long ago, almost 30 million accounts on Facebook were hacked with attackers gaining full access to a lot of sensitive and personal information. So far the FBI seems to be handling the investigation, and they have asked the company to keep silence about who was the perpetrator. Facebook made the hack known to the public almost two weeks ago. At that moment they believed that at least 50 million accounts had been compromised. The number has been reduced to the aforementioned 30 million, but the amount of data that has been stolen makes this the worst attack faced by the company since it was created.
Were this group of hackers using some of the known methods published by SecurityEquifax or it’s about some newly released trick to hack Facebook account, it’s still under investigation. However what should be worrying FB security team is that their platform is still not that reliable and bulletproof from hacking how they claim.

Back in 1983, a little film called “Wargames” that starred Matthew Broderick made such an impact in the Reagan administration that they started to wonder what would actually happen if enemy forces ever got a hold of their computer systems. Back in those days most of the programs and nearly all the equipment was running on analog technology, but the digital era was around the corner, and it wasn’t going to be that long until it reached military technology. One year later Ronald Reagan was pushing the first-ever federal law to outlaw hacking practices and label them as a form of attack to the US interests under the advice of Donald Latham a former NSA analyst and a personal advisor to the President.
Turning Fiction into a Reality
35 years have passed since that moment, and millions of dollars have been spent by the US Department of Defense to build security on the computer systems that are tasked with handling the weapons systems that have cost so much money to (more…)

The Association for Computing Machinery has been there for a long time. They are one of the biggest gatherings of tech-savvy people in the world, and as such, one should consider them authority in the field. The AMC updated the code of ethics for software developers in July of 2018. It should have been a big deal, but a research center located in North Carolina somehow found a way to tell everyone that this code of ethics doesn’t affect the decisions of any software developer in the world.
The Code of Ethics that Nobody Cares About
That’s not a typo. Nobody in the whole damn planet gives a rat’s ass about this norm, and that’s a problem for many companies and established developers in the field who keep facing mods and crack on their software every single day even though (more…)
Who says that staying at in college doesn’t pay off? Not so long ago a North Carolina University researcher managed to score one of the best breakthroughs related to smart communications. Shih Chun Lin is his name, and he just created a technology whose purpose is to allow cellular communication nodes in 5G systems. This would be very helpful when it comes to partition bandwidth for any device efficiently, and this, in turn, leads to a vast improvement in the end-to-end and cross data rates. The technology has been proven on simulations so far, and it has been capable of meeting a transmission of an unprecedented 10 gigabytes per second in its peak.
