Please be careful.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration has received notice of about 736,000 [tax-related] scam attempts since October 2013. Unfortunately, most of these scams are very advanced and believable, resulting in nearly 4,550 victims that have collectively lost more than $23 million.

United, the No. 3 U.S. airline by passengers carried, said customers who bought its cheapest fares would not be assigned seats until the day of departure, meaning people on the same ticket may be split apart.

United will also prohibit these travelers from carrying on bags that can only fit in overhead bins, and they will not accrue miles toward elite status.

Google's new PhotoScan app is an incredibly easy way to digitize old, printed photos

The free app launching Tuesday on iOS and Android uses Google's powerful machine learning to turn print photos into digital pics in seconds. PhotoScan works like magic and produces a reflection-free image.

You start by taking a photo of the picture you want to digitize, and then the app overlays four circles on top of the image. Simply move the circle outline above the four circles displayed on the photo until they turn blue, and voila, you've got a perfectly scanned photo.

But how's the app actually producing a reflection-free digital scan? The answer is pretty simple: The app is actually taking four different photos when you match the circles up and then composites each photo into one final image, intelligently omitting out the areas that are overexposed (white) while cropping and auto-rotating it.

There are also tools for more advanced users who want more control over the cropping.

Let's hope this allows many more people to easily "digitise" those old photos lying in shoeboxes under their beds. There probably can't be any easier way than this to do it!
