Keren Elazari puts hacking in perspective.
The beauty of hackers, says cybersecurity expert Keren Elazari, is that they force us to evolve and improve. Yes, some hackers are bad guys, but many are working to fight government corruption and advocate for our rights. By exposing vulnerabilities, they push the Internet to become stronger and healthier, wielding their power to create a better world.

The free video-streaming upstart is starting to rival the larger site for traffic in some countries, but it isn't necessarily doing anything illegal.

+Joe Mezzanini I'm surprised that Netflix would put out a public comment, but this means Netflix views them as a threat.

Popcorn Time is giving away Hollywood’s most valuable content for free, and making that piracy easier than ever.

The Writer Automaton, Switzerland

A 240 year old doll that can write, a clockwork creation by Pierre Jaquet-Droz, a Swiss watchmaker. The doll is able to write any custom text up to 40 letters long, and it uses a goose feather to write, which he inks from time to time, including a shake of the wrist to prevent ink from spilling. His eyes follow the text being written, and the head moves when he takes some ink

This week I tested two new apps for recording audio interviews. Both of these apps can be used by students without creating any kind of new online accounts. Neither one is entirely perfect, but they're both quite good. Opinio...

Leaving the house is about to get a little harder. Netflix is well on its way to turning everybody in the world into binge-watching homebodies. But really, who cares? Life is just all that inconvenient stuff that happens in between "Breaking ...

Bragging rights
I fell in lust with technology and photography many years ago, starting with a Commodore VIC20 with a tape drive, 300 baud modems and a Minolta 201 SLR camera. Computers satisfied my left brain and photography my right brain. I operated an electronic bulletin board service equipped with FidoNET, was on the beta test team for the first anti-virus software in the world, and played with pin-hole cameras with my home-made short wave blasting in the background. I lived through AOL, Prodigy, CompuServe, and used the internet before it was even open to the public. I blogged before it was called blogging. As a kid my mom let me take everything I can get my hands on apart, my dad gave me my own acetylene torch, multimeter, cutting pliers and screwdriver set - my brother gave me his 35mm camera. We practically lived in our family corner grocery store, a great place to learn about people. In my former Law Enforcement job, I learned there is bad in every good guy and good in every bad guy. Everything boiled down to what I am today - a mix of many things, a man of many interests - a technician in academia and a consultant to a few organizations.

Great Coffee, nice people. No food except for cookies, bagels - overall a really nice place. (I don't know where G+ is getting the Utica Roasting Co logo from, but Cafe Domenico does not use that coffee; wrong logo!!!) One downfall - no WiFi

Food is soooo good, homemade and fresh. Service is great and you will not find a cleaner restaurant anywhere. Live jazz on Friday or Saturday nights too. (It's located in "center court" of the shopping plaza so you really have to look for it). Top notch!

The best coffee house around. Excellent beverages, sandwiches and other food. Great place to just hang out and enjoy the atmosphere. One of the coolest lunch spots. Entertainment various from spinning vinyl records, to open mike nights nights are everything in between. Good people, friendly crowd and a little area with vintage clothing for sale too.

Just perfect. Incredible food incredible service. Really great atmosphere. Must try it if you like sushi. (I am suspicious of that one bad review. I've eaten here dozens of times and so have my friends and we all love it) [
