There's a general consensus in Washington that if anything in the President's office was tapped, it was his Android cell phone. His obsolete device has little security, to the point that researchers say planting spyware on it is trivial, and it can be done without a trace. We explain, and we can help you make sure it doesn't happen to you. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/unsecured-apple-android-smartphones-are-major-security-threats

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has offered to provide details of exploits used by the CIA to tech companies so they might improve their products. This course of action is fraught with peril. You could end up losing your secrets as well. http://www.eweek.com/security/wikileaks-offer-to-help-secure-tech-products-fraught-with-legal-risks.html

The problem for +Uber when it started expanding was how to deal with the depth of corruption in the taxi business, and the equally deep level in the regulators. The taxi companies didn't like having to compete, and the regulators didn't want anything to interfere with their personal cash flow. It's no surprise that Uber figured out how to avoid those officials while also protecting its drivers. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/uber-greyball-looks-prudent-rather-than-evil-in-ride-sharing-industry.html

Treating physical security and data security as different, unrelated functions is a huge mistake, and doing so could endanger your organization. https://insights.hpe.com/articles/physical-and-data-security-two-sides-of-the-same-coin-1703.html

The Space Race is back on. Both +NASA and +SpaceX are gearing up for manned flights around the moon in the next two years. If allowed to continue, this could be a huge boost for STEM professions and for the economy. This is one of the most positive signs in years. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/spacex-targets-2018-for-manned-mission-around-the-moon-and-beyond.html

Our analysis of the statements, positions and appointments of Donald Trump, the new US President, indicate that he's probably going to be a reliable friend to the tech industry. But we don't know everything yet, and a great deal depends on Congress, so stay tuned. http://www.eweek.com/it-management/trumps-early-statements-indicate-hell-be-a-tech-industry-ally.html

The role of the internet in US elections began 20 years ago, and it's been increasing ever since. During the election of 2016 the use of the internet in campaigns came fully of age. This is the first where the internet, especially social media, played a critical role in the outcome. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/how-the-internet-came-of-age-as-a-campaign-tool-in-2016-election.html

I'm getting a lot of questions about the#polling in Tuesday's presidential #election, and how it can be so wrong. The short answer is that the world changed but political polling didn't change with it. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/old-school-polling-methods-hid-trumps-popularity-with-voters.html

The election of 2016 is the first in which cyber-politics played a dominant role in the political process. But exactly what will that role turn out to be? It certainly changed the nature of discourse. But did anything get better? Perhaps we'll see when the votes are counted. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/cyber-politics-reached-new-heights-in-2016-presidential-election.html
