Microsoft Emergency Update, Amazon HQ2 And Jackpotting
Microsoft issued an emergency update to their softwares after Intel’s buggy Spectre fix caused spontaneous rebooting, data loss, and complete PC failure. In their search to find the perfect location for HQ2, Amazon has narrowed the list of cities to 20. But, many are concerned about the e-commerce giant coming to their city and growing the housing crisis, increasing income inequality, and changing the real estate and affordable housing market. Jackpotting, the hacking scheme that spits out money from an ATMs as you walk by, is a growing trend in the United States. Financial institutions using outdated Windows XP software are being targeted. This is a growing concern since some banking companies are neglecting to upgrade their information technology infrastructure.
