At&t Outage

At&t recent outage was not a cyberattack but as they say a technical error but an application and execution of an incorrect process.

It was definitely like a scene of a movie when this outage occurred.

Canada Bans Flipper

It was only a matter of time before the Flipper would be banned and I can see this powerful tool definitely causing security problems where ever you go, but this is still a remidial device compared to other devices that consumers should be concerned with. 

Instead Canada should enforced their car manufactures to safe guard consumer goods.

X Fake Online Traffic

Recently X aka Twitter reported that it's users post and video's were rising, and after review from a third party it looks like it was fake. 

Information like this is no surprise from a company that's still sinking and user use is jumping ship. But it's nothing new in the world of Elon Musk.

I would guess now would be a good time to rehire the thousands of employee's that he laid off.

MS Publisher Support End Date

It looks like Microsoft if pulling the plug for support to Publisher in 2026 and plans on integrating the software to it's other office applications.

Microsoft was thought by many that it would be released this year a new OS running Windows 12 but this looks like it's not the case and instead they are just going to do a major big overhaul in the Windows 11 24H2 update with more AI functions. 

I guess we are just going to have to wait another year to hear what they will be ready to roll out Windows 12.

It's still in testing and and in small numbers but as it becomes more popular it will reach broader public.

Vision Pro Returns

After all the hype on Apple Vision Pro, owners are now returning back their devices and waiting for their refunds. It looks like though even some users were impressed with the device, they are not still comfortable wanting to keep them that long to justify their current costs.

It looks like it's going to maybe take several generations of upgrades for the devices to justify their net worth. I guess it's still not a bad outcome for the development of this new technology.

Bluesky

Ever since Elon Musk purchased Twitter it's been quite a disaster for the so called X aka Twitter. I doubt the company will ever recover and he will be lucky if he can some capital out of the company before it goes under.

Now Bluesky has a big shot on competing with X and shifting it's users from one platform to another. They just need to show their users that's things are better on their end.

It's going to be interesting to see the final outcome of Bluesky and X.

Why is Tesla Autopilot Ruined

Depending you who talk to, Telsa's autopilot had made it hard for drivers not to pay attention at the road at all times.

It's no surprise for Mercedes-Benz exposing some source code by leaving a private key online with unrestricted access. It's just good practice to have periodic security audits in place to prevent things like this from occurring.
