How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Smart homes are here. Although not every home in the U.S. is tricked out with the latest technologies, they’re no longer a rarity. For example, a hefty 41 percent of the people who responded to an online survey conducted last year said they already owned smart home devices. Sales of smart refrigerators and washing machines more than doubled in 2017. Meanwhile, shipments of voice-controlled devices such as the Amazon Echo and Google Home speakers were 159 percent higher in 2017 than in 2016.

Smart Homes: The Power, the Pleasure and the Pain

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

You’ve seen the ad: A family is vacationing out of town and the parents suddenly wonder if the house is locked up properly. They use their smartphone to remotely activate the smart locks and security system. Or this one: Someone rings the doorbell or merely approaches a home, and the homeowner uses a smartphone to speak through the video doorbell system, even when not at home, perhaps bewildering the visitor — or potential intruder — who can’t tell where the voice is coming from. This picture has a dark side, though.

Chaos Threatens Tech Takeover

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The tech world experienced more insanity last week. We finally got confirmation from AMD that the CTS Labs security report was a tempest in a teapot, but the big question remained unanswered. A self-driving Uber vehicle killed a pedestrian, but we didn’t ask the right questions. Facebook admitted that it gave our information to a bad actor, and we forgot what really would wake up Zuckerberg. Google, even when it tries to do something good, does something bad. Why does it suddenly seem like so many powerful tech firms are run by idiots?

Researcher Cracks ‘Hacker-Proof’ Crypto Wallet

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

A virtual currency hardware wallet with millions of users has been compromised. Saleem Rashid explained how he cracked the firmware on the wallet produced by Ledger using what’s known as a “supply chain” attack. That means a targeted device is compromised before any users get their hands on it. The attack on Ledger’s $ 100 Nano S wallet creates a backdoor on the device that generates predetermined wallet addresses and passwords. With that information, a bandit might be able to send money from the wallet to his own account.

Many Facebook members reportedly have shuttered their accounts in the wake of reports that Cambridge Analytica, a voter profiling company working for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, harvested data from 50 million users, unbeknownst to them. Indignation over Facebook’s role in the data leak has mushroomed, and some users have taken to Twitter to announce their liberation from the social network. Facebook has been in hot water before over allegations of privacy intrusion and misuse of members’ data, but it weathered those storms.
