This $5 Device Can Hack Your Locked Computer In One Minute
This is the type of thing that keeps a network security expert awake at night. Here’s the tl;dr version: Never, ever leave your computer unattended, even at work, and even if it’s password protected.
Secrets Of Online Shopping Discrimination
It might surprise you to learn that the same items from the same online retailer have different prices depending on the device you use to display them.

It always throws me to see Andrew Garfield in interviews, because he’s impeccably British but always plays these iconic American characters (Spider Man, Desmond Doss, etc…). I just can’t get used to his British accent IRL.

108 years is a long time to wait for a pennant, but Mabel Ball hung in there with her beloved Cubs.
