Google Officially Adds Mobile Friendliness As Ranking Factor
We all knew this was coming, the question was when? As of April the 21st of 2015 Google will roll out its new mobile-friendly ranking system, giving webmasters and SEO's more time to comply.

Google has also made the ability to identify mobile-usability issues easier with their mobile friendly test: http://goo.gl/9mBbHd , along with the previously available mobile-usability reports in Webmaster Tools.

Sites that fail to conform are likely to lose visibility to other more mobile compliant websites, as search engines like Google embrace the now heavily mobile world.

The Funniest Hacker Stock Photos
I produce computer-based privacy and data security training, so I'm often in the hunt for stock photos. One of the hardest things in the world to do is to find a stock photo of a hacker that doesn't look absolutely ridiculous.I've gone through hundreds of hacker stock photos, and I've discovered some that are so absurdly funny that they are true classics and deserve to be celebrated in a hall of fame. So I bought some of these gems to share them ...

There's no big new spiffy feature in Linux 4.0, but why we have a Linux 4.0 release anyway makes an amusing tale.
Summary:Linus Torvalds has decided to move the Linux kernel release from 3.19.x to 4.0 more from whimsy then from a serious need.

1. Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Privdog use Komodia's library.

2. "Most other AV products use similar self-signed certificates to detect SSL-injected threats"

So, it doesn't matter if your browser implements SSL correctly, your antivirus software is MITM-ing it anyway? Is that for real?
Titles from security firms Lavasoft and Comodo leave users open to easier attacks.

Researchers at QMUL have successfully created electricity-generating solar-cells with chemicals found in the shells of shrimps and other crustaceans for the first time.

Dr Joe Briscoe, one of the researchers on the project, said: “This could be a great new way to make these versatile, quick and easy to produce solar cells from readily available, sustainable materials. Once we’ve improved their efficiency they could be used anywhere that solar cells are used now, particularly to charge the kinds of devices people carry with them every day.

The materials chitin and chitosan found in the shells are abundant and significantly cheaper to produce than the expensive metals such as ruthenium, which is similar to platinum, that are currently used in making nanostructured solar-cells. Currently the efficiency of solar cells made with these ...
