Joined Jim Polito today to talk about a cloud bleed by a service called Cloudflare, where they recently had a massive memory leak exposing data from different sites using the service. And at this point, the best suggestion would be changing passwords from all the websites that you have logins with.

To keep you on the safer side, make sure to use password managers. Link to related article below with my recommended password manager.

Today on TechSanity Check, a discussion on "Millennials", and how they can not live without their devices, and why this can be a good thing or a bad thing for your business.

It could be a great thing to have them knowing that they bring their own devices but with cloud services, corporate information, and lack of knowledge in security, what could possibly happen?

Cloudflare's code has an unknown quantity of data that has been stolen. Now that's a problem, right? That's a real problem.

This tiny bug in the code apparently just includes things like passwords, personal information, messages, cookies and more, to leak all over the Internet. This was exposed just last Friday, just a couple of days ago.

So, what to do now?

Joined Ken and Matt to talk more about why Google self-driving car employees quit. The gig could have been too good for them, that they actually founded self-driving companies of their own.

Also, with the rise of autonomous technology, Google's very own AI (OwnMind) started thinking for its own, that it became highly aggressive in stressful situations. Could this be the same future for government departments, where robots are replacing human employees in their jobs?

These and more on CraigPeterson.com.

Did Google's new AI backfire on a stressful situation? This could not be far from Stephen Hawking's, the famed physicist, warning “the best, or the worst thing, ever to happen to humanity”.

You might not know, that with AI now getting ready for the future, you could also be monitored in your office the moment you leave your desk.

Today is about browser wars. Turns out things are really shaken up. This is interesting, as people are no longer using browsers that much.

Also, the House re-introduced the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) which is a very big deal. This was passed back in 1986 and hasn't been updated since.

Tune in and find out what does it mean to have the ECA re-introduced, what are the major changes to the users and to the email, and how the government gets involved.
