+ - Start-ups increasingly target of hacking

Submitted by ubrgeek
ubrgeek (679399) writes "Friday's hack of Slack follows last week's compromise of and is indicative of a growing problem facing start-up tech companies. As the New York Times reports, 'Breaches are becoming a kind of rite of passage for fledgling tech companies. If they gain enough momentum with users, chances are they will also become a target for hackers looking to steal, and monetize, the vast personal information they store on users, like email addresses and passwords.'"

Must be one of the new versions. I tried one six or seven months ago and lasted less than a minute before getting hit by motion sickness. Granted, I get it pretty quickly from FPS (I can play for about five minutes and then I'm laid-up for hours) so I might be overly sensitive to the experience.

There are three reasons we keep cable:
1) American Pickers (I know Netflix has it, but we've seen all of those and it's our relax-without-thinking show that we look forward to sitting down together each week once the kids are asleep)
2) Walking Dead (Ditto Netflix, although I don't know how current they are. That said, I'm increasingly becoming decreasingly interested in the show)
3) It costs $10 more to get Internet access without also getting cable.

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
