Cathay Pacific hack: Personal data of up to 9.4 million airline passengers laid bare




Is there a list somewhere of companies that haven't been hacked yet?

Finally, someone takes a stand against Apple, Samsung for slowing people's phones. Just a few million dollars, tho


Phone purchase

I maybe wrong but I thought one purchased a handset (hardware) and a software license that grants you permission to use the software. Therefore my thinking is that Apple still own the software and the right to change or upgrade it as they wish. I agree that communication appears to be the issue here rather than the actions.

VR going mainstream? Yeah, next year, says Facebook, for the third year in a row


Virtual reality is going to be huge...

So when can you get in the first self-driving car? GM says 2019. Mobileye says 2021. Waymo says 2018 – yes, this year


Sel-driving vehicles

Has anyone explored the crime potential? You only need a few people to stand in front of vehicle in order to stop it and rob the passengers. Works for self-driving lorries too!

Try our new driverless car software says Nvidia, as it suspends driverless car trials


Re: Won't someone please think of the children?

Do you mean those children who might want to jump in front of a self-driving car for fun, you know just to see what happens?

Facebook to extend bug bounty to cover data leakage, sever ties to data brokers



Is it just me or can I sense a re-branding in the making? Surely the executives will have suggested this as a way to take the nasty taste from the mouths of users?

Adobe: New Unified Customer Profile will personalise ads as never before


“Consumers prefer a personalised experience,...“When you walk into that restaurant they know the food you want to order, they know your drink."

I go to a restaurant to try different dishes/drinks. If I wanted the same food/drink I could go to McD's.

I understand that prisoners get a 'personalised experience'.

Re: Information Commisioner statement on Facebook

Wow! 6.7% = $37billion. I think earlier comments about Facebook being too rich to fail really does apply.
