Amazon 'wish list' is gateway to epic social engineering hack Comedian Erik Stolhanske didn't know what he was getting himself into when he let a cybersecurity expert at SecureState take a crack at hacking him. The "Super Troopers" actor gave the company the green light to try to access his Twitter account with nothing more than his name. What he found out was that his entire digital life could have been compromised using simple techniques. SecureState profiling consultant Brandan Geise went on a mission to hack into Stolhanske's Twitter account, but instead was also able to gain access to his Amazon, AOL, Apple and Dropbox accounts, as well his Web hosting account.

The time-traveling character from Kurt Vonnegut’s 1969 novel Slaughterhouse-Five this month became available to would-be writers of Vonnegut fan fiction, through a new program called Kindle Worlds.

5ives | Merlin's Lists of Five Things America's Multimedia Online (Human Eye Frames Per Second) This article is dedicated to a friend of mine, Mike. There is a common misconception in human thinking that our eyes can only interpret 30 Frames Per Second. This misconception dates back to the first human films where in fact a horse was filmed proving actually that at certain points they were resting on a single leg during running. These early films evolved to run at 24 Frames Per Second, which has been the standard for close to a century. A Movie theatre film running at 24 FPS (Frames Per Second) has an explanation.

Now since the first CRT TV was released, televisions have been running at 30 Frames Per Second. Moving on now with the frame rate.
