Cisco and Apple are teaming up in attempts to combat SalesForce. In future IOS updates Cisco will offer a feature embedded into Apple software similar to what SaleForce offers. The App will also provide more security for your phone as well as better connectivity with customers and other business ventures.

 

Tech. Security

Tens of millions of people were hacked Friday. Just another example of how fragile and exposed your tech is. The attack on Friday started in the U.S  but mainly hit Europe. During the time users were not able to access certain news websites. They also hit Twitter, PayPal and Spotify.

The Hackers used tech security services, OpenDNS and Alphabet Inc., to hide their IP addresses.

 

Terminator vibes?

Machine Learning sounds cool but it also sounds not so cool. Programmers are teaching computers to identify which foods taste good essentially, which is how I understood it. The hard part is that computers don’t have mouths. Assigning code to each part of how something tastes and having the computer decide whether it would taste good to a human. It’s a simple concept but it’s a learning child and with time will become smarter. I don’t know about you but I’m getting a terminator type vibe from an article like this.

People are using social media more than ever, a reported 62% of US adults use social media to consume news. With all this usage new platforms are rising. Facebook Live is Zuckerberg’s new favorite child, offering on live connection between you and your friends. Virtual Reality is a new platform but is it here to stay or just a fad? I guess we will find out, could we live in a world where everyone is locked into a headset?
