It's hacked!
 
German researchers hack Galaxy S5 fingerprint login

Just Unbelievable! Watch these guys hack the new Galaxy S5 into accepting a fingerprint mold & make it look way too easy. 4 days for the hack? Hmm. Someone's gonna have some explaining to do.

And get this, the phone's fingerprint security is also integrated with users PayPal. Ouch!

According to PCWorld:

It took just four days for German researchers to trick the Samsung Galaxy S5’s fingerprint scanner into accepting a mold of a fingerprint instead of a real finger.

Despite fingerprint authentication being one of the headline features on Samsung’s new flagship model, the company’s implementation of it “leaves much to be desired,” SRLabs said in a video demonstration of the hack posted on Youtube.

The weakness of Samsung’s implementation is made even more serious because of the integration with Paypal, which allows users to authenticate transactions and money transfers using the fingerprint scanner, according to SRLabs.

Google Ads are a "go"

Thanks for the "heads up" +Joshua Berg
 
Last December, we introduced +Post ads to a limited number of AdWords advertisers as a way to amplify their content to new audiences. Starting today, we’re making +Post ads available to all advertisers with at least 1000 Google+ followers: goo.gl/6gNlsx.

See how brands such as +Audi USA  and +Topman  are using +Post ads to drive more participation with their brand’s content across the web.

Very topical

SEO myths!
Thanks again +Joshua Berg
 
Matt Cutts just released, "What are some myths about SEO? Always very helpful to clear things up, SEO myth questions have been answered a number of times. So here's the latest out just minutes ago.

Some of these have been around for a while & have been answered before, but not everyone gets it. So here's the main SEO myth points & my (+Joshua Berg) notes on this. 


 
If you buy ads you'll rank higher on Google.
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔


If you don't buy ads you'll rank better on Google.
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔


Google makes changes to drive people to buy ads.
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔


Here's the mental model you need to understand why Google does what it does in the search results. We want to return really good search results to users, so that they're happy, so that they'll keep coming back.

That's basically it, "Happy users are loyal users." So if we give them a good experience on one search, they'll think about using us the next time they have an information need.

We are NOT going to make an algorithmic change to try to drive people to buy ads.

Buying ads is not going to help, or hurt your rankings in any way.


When people get into a kind of "group think."
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
"Aha, now we know submitting our articles to these article directories is gonna be the best way to rank number 1."

"Guest blogging, this is totally it. If you're guest blogging you're going to go up to number 1."

"Oh link wheels! You gotta have link wheels if you're gonna rank number 1."   [LOL, that's been a while back.]


If somebody had a foolproof way to make money online, they would probably use that way to make money, rather than packaging it up in an e-book and selling it to people, or packaging it into a tool & selling it to people.


An automated software package to white hat SEO
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
I read an article recently where someone was talking about using some automated software package & trying to do white hat SEO with it.

Which to me sounds like buying a gun & trying to use it as a hammer.  [Sounds like he doesn't like this idea very much, or automated SEO software packages for that matter. No surprise there.]


Someone says they made a lot of money online"
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔

A lot of these tools have the potential to dig yourself into a hole.

Just because someone says they made a lot of money online, doesn't really mean they made a lot of money online.

Approach some of the tools, services & products you see on the various boards with a little bit of caution. Try to avoid "group think."


Keep the mental model of, "What is Google trying to do? We're trying to return great search results for users.

If you're not aligned with those goals... then you're always going to be working in opposition to the algorithms & to regular users.


[This right here is really the main key to remember.]

After seeing a 2nd hand Medicraft bed on Ebay, we thought we'd contact the actual Geebung office instead to purchase new. It took multiple calls to finally get a "voice" two days later who was situated in NSW. He gave me the mobile of a rep in Brisbane. I left a message on her phone and she promptly returned it within the hour. Since she was on the road, she requested that I send an email to her so that she could later send me a quote.. 1. Why advertise as a Geebung landline number if there is no one to answer it? 2. Why not list a email address on the yellow pages / Google to allow for "some" customer convenience? 3. How many customers does this company loose because of how much effort is required just to get a person to answer.....let alone obtain information/quote on their product? 4. Webpage? Google results gave a google place & yellow pages only

My special treat is to pop into Tarragindi Thai to pick up a Red Curry Duck with coconut rice. They have friendly service, and the food is always a pleasure to eat. On the negative side on busy nights like Friday and Saturday nights wait can be 30 - 55minutes for take away. So it's better to phone ahead and then pick up. The other negative is that I find they are too expensive for me to feed my entire family of six. So I go to the Italian place "Puccini" next door to feed hubby and the kids as they are better value.
