Interesting read. I wonder how a law would be able to protect against the hacks. It is very unfortunate that the word "hacker" has gotten such a bad meaning, instead the right thing would be to focus on software vulnerabilities and how to best test and protect against these flaws.

It took 4.5 Hrs for the photo to come here at the speed of light. What I'm always amazed is that it is able to send a strong enough signal (in the right direction) that we can receive data from 3 billion miles away.

"Here's the photo they took -- which, despite traveling at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second), took four and a half hours to reach us here on Earth as it crossed the 3 billion miles between here and Pluto."

Sad to hear that 100K accounts at IRS got hacked. This is essentially the route and if you had created an account for yourself first then, even when hackers get in, you probably would have gotten notified.
 
If you file taxes in the US, then you should make sure to create an IRS account (to get your past tax transcript) otherwise someone else could create one based on knowledge and some data (and you'll have a hard time fixing it). I was surprised how easy was it and soon after creating the account I could see my past returns.

California produces 99% of all US almonds and walnuts and 90% of all US tomatoes!
The drought's effect will be felt by the whole country.
Why California's drought is a disaster for your favorite fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

It's very worth noting that "90% of US tomatoes" is not "90% of tomatoes grown in the US", not "90% of tomatoes consumed in the US". We import tremendous amounts of produce from Mexico.

Look who showed up at breakfast and we served him his favorite food.
What do you think are his other favorite foods?

On one of the recent flights, the pilot announced that they need to remove the luggage of a passenger who is no longer going to be on the flight. I was wondering, how hard that would be as it took quite a while. Looking at this picture (of cross section of the airplane) gives you an idea that containers are so well packed that the only way is to take out all the containers until you reach the right one. Also I always wondered about the unusual shape of the container and now I know why.

All sites spend time and energy making their login/authentication system better and secure but most of them ignore that "Account Recovery"  plays the same part in authentication and should be consider one link in the chain.
A site that uses email as a primary identifier or for recovery can never keep it a secret that who has an account on the site. This will easily be revealed during registration or sign-in or account recovery.

Years of work has gone into building the Google Identity platform and tools and very excited to launch these today. These will help all our users and developers. 

Smart Lock for Passwords not only helps you login to an app if you have used a password but it'll also help when you use an IDP (Identity provider like Facebook, LinkedIn or Google). Smart Lock can remember the method you used to sign into an app and on a new device, the app can sign you in with the same method.  One of the biggest complain of federated sign-in was that users forget and they  sign-in with different method the next time they come back (and we can now help).
Building a new app or site, definitely check out Identity toolkit for all your authentication needs. We'll continue to add the latest and greatest related to authentication and you will not have to worry about it.
#security   #authentication   #password  
 
The tools in the new Google Identity Platform can help you cut friction out of every step of getting people signed in to your app or site. Here’s what’s in it:

New - Smart Lock for Passwords: An API that recognizes and pre-fills login credentials across devices. Your users can save their password and never be asked for it again. Try it out on +The New York Times, +Eventbrite, +Instacart, +Orbitz, +Netflix and +LinkedIn's Android apps or sites (on Chrome) today.

Google sign-in: An updated Google branded sign in is now available for your app and site. The NYTimes has seen a 20% increase in signed-in usage of their site after implementing this.

Identity Toolkit: Just getting started with an app? Check out our authorization solution in-a-box.

Visit developers.google.com/identity to learn more.

Woke up early to see the third instance of Lunar Eclipse Tetrad. This image is captured by the camera without any color adjustments during the complete eclipse.

+Natty Netsuwan  It is 70-300mm zoom lens and at 300mm with a crop sensor it feels more like 300*1.6 = 480mm and photo is cropped a bit as well.

Photo editing tools in G+ are great and very easy to use. Here is the Colosseum in Rome with some green (there is not much of it around the structure).

One of the best places to go for Korean Tofu soup. Generally there is a wait at popular times. Service could be better but once you get the food you don't need much. Note that they are closed on Sundays.
