Yep, money issue here too. I got a late start in my career. In my 20s I worked low paying menial jobs and moved around quite a bit. The concept of saving for retirement didn't exist; I was scraping to get by. Now in my 50s I realize there is no way I can "retire". Unless I hit the lottery, I'll work until I'm dead.

Yes. Darwin's system. When a company gets hacked and customer's information is taken, they lose business. If they get hacked enough, they go out of business. Do the customers get hurt? Sure. They get smarter too. If a company is smart and secures their data, then they don't get hacked and they keep their customers and the customers don't get hurt. More laws are not always the best answer.

The bug, while not a security threat, has become increasingly painful for many users. If a file path contains the letters "CR", Adobe Reader errors out when you try to open the file."
