I wonder how much proactive development of plausible looking data is generated in parallel to be used in such circumstances on short notice for any military project. Can you imagine the CVS admin headaches?
Interesting point on the cleartext transmission. My bank and/or Visa does indeed pay all when my card is compromised. I guess that's the one remaining benefit to sticking with BoA.
I never use the Debit Option when using my bank card in a transaction. I always choose credit for two reasons: A) When you use credit, the store pays the transaction fee, if any. I don't know if it's true anymore but last I checked, using a debit card and entering a PIN resulted in a small fee charged to the customer for the transaction. B) The purchase and fraud protections granted by Visa (even on check cards) are reduced or even disappear when you use the Debit option and enter your PIN. If you don't transmit the PIN, you don't need to worry about a MITM decrypting it.

Oops. CNN is advertising an address to upload all your photos taken throughout the day so they can stitch them together to make 360-deg VR photos available as close to real time as they can (several minute delay).
Heh. I wondered why China chose the name Firefly for the satellite but then I remembered that all the cursing and mother insults were in Chinese. If their development labs sound anything like my garage when I'm working on my vehicles....
