Shocked at Starbucks #security #starbucks #freehack

Surprised by a company as large as Starbucks would release an app that had this big of a security hole.

I remember sitting in a meeting with another large company who said the tradeoff is development vs legal liability.  Is the customer really first?

Google buys major military robot maker: Why does search giant want to be ‘BigDog’ of automation?

 

Google is on a robot shopping spree, and its recent purchase of a military robot maker has some wondering what exactly the company intends to do with its own zoo of electronic creatures that creep, crawl, and climb.

It may seem odd for the Internet search giant to purchase a Boston Dynamics, a company that makes rugged machines that can run up to 29 mph, traverse rocky terrain and hurl cinder blocks up to 17 feet. The company is the eighth robot maker Google has snatched up. But the deals also indicate that the Internet giant and pioneer of self-driving cars is serious about a robot-filled future.

What does your cell phone company sell? Verizon data

 

Data collected from your smartphone is shaping the future of marketing — and cell phone companies are cashing in.

What your phone knows about you — where you are, what you’re searching for and what you like — is mouthwatering for advertisers. Combined with other third-party data, including your age and salary range, marketers are using cell phone customers’ information to make decisions about how they advertise.

Though all four major carriers sell their customers’ smartphone data, Verizon’s (VZ, Fortune 500) year-old Precision Market Insights program is the farthest-reaching. Here’s how the Precision program works, according to Verizon spokeswoman Debi Lewis

Google Shuts Down Google Affiliate Network: Are you surprised?

Our goal with Google Affiliate Network has been to help advertisers and publishers improve their performance across the affiliate ecosystem. Cost-per-action (CPA) marketing has rapidly evolved in the last few years, and we’ve invested significantly in CPA tools like Product Listing Ads, remarketing and Conversion Optimizer. We’re constantly evaluating our products to ensure that we’re focused on the services that will have the biggest impact for our advertisers and publishers.

To that end, we’ve made the difficult decision to retire Google Affiliate Network and focus on other products that are driving great results for clients.

We’ll continue to support our customers as we wind down the product over the next few months. And there are other products that can help you achieve your goals. Affiliate publishers can continue to earn AdSense revenue through the AdSense network. And marketers can take advantage of other CPA-oriented Google tools like Product Listing Ads, remarketing and Conversion Optimizer to drive valuable online sales and conversions. These areas are growing rapidly and we’re continuing to invest heavily in them.

Thanks for your support of our affiliate product, and we look forward to helping you grow your business in the future.

When I started using Pinterest to promote my business, at first I was just happy uploading cool-looking photos.
