The recent Yahoo data breach was a reminder that your personal information is at risk. Bankrate.com analyst Mike Cetera says if something similar has not happened to you yet, it is a virtual certainty that it will happen at some point during your lifetime. “If you have not been breached yet, you’re lucky. And if you have not been breached yet, you’re going to be breached at some point,” Cetera told the FOX Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo.

Maybe. The thing is, in spite of its mess, there’s still a lot to value in Twitter. No other social network has built up quite the same kind of cultural currency—and for good reason. Unlike other networks, Twitter’s influence is decentralized; it lies in its power users, the ones who use it to give voice to people and movements that may not have risen otherwise. Just look at how Twitter both took and pushed the pulse of the 2016 elections. Or how crises unfold on the platform. Or how social movements take hold.

The purported goal of the National Cyber Security Initiative is to reduce the vulnerability of federal government networks to attacks and intrusions by extending the tools that currently protect classified networks to all federal government networks.

The iPad doesn’t run Flash. If your website uses Flash, it won’t play well on the iPad. Turns out, a lot of people want their sites to look pretty on the iPad. So the internet’s already starting to look different.
“I’m quite inspired by mid-20th century concepts, when we had a different view on quality and craftsmanship,” Hultén says. “The smashed-up references in my work have a triggering effect on the viewer/customer, I guess … Nostalgia is involved to a certain extent, yes, but it’s not looking backwards. It’s taking steps in different directions simultaneously by using fragments from both past and today, creating unique and balanced objects.”
Ad blockers are typically pieces of third-party software that can be installed as add-ons or “extensions” to your web browser.

Sam Ritchie is a free spirit. Chatting inside Twitter’s office in early October, he wears a single flip-flop, the sort that long-distance runners like to wear. The other one broke, so he just started showing up at the office half-barefoot. The next time we talk to him, he has left Twitter, departing the day after its big IPO. He’s moving to Colorado to build a website called Paddleguru.com, a return to the world of sprint kayaking. But whatever else he does, he has left his mark on the world of elite programming. His uncle would be proud.
“The Web has revolutionized the way we do business,” said committee spokeswoman Janis Shieldes. “It has let us get in contact with like-minded organizations more quickly. It’s instrumental in getting people familiar with who we are and what we do.”
Network Solutions is the biggest registrar of domain names – a service with which customers can buy .com and .net Internet addresses.

“I think it’s a pretty clear sign that the backlash is about to hit,” says DJ N-Wee, the producer of a mashup album called The Slack Album. “Whatever the major labels get their hands on, they kill within a matter of months, at least for the original audiences.”
“If the website is last minute, the app is last second,” Mazzella says of the travel opportunities it affords.
