Apple must be doing something right as the cost of Apple ID data on the Dark Web has dropped, even as the value of Fortnite, Facebook, Netflix and Uber accounts has increased.
Apple is losing value
Last year, I reported that online scammers were spending up to $15 per account on Apple ID information, making Apple customers, “the most appealing targets” for scammers.
The latest edition of Top10VPN’s Dark Web Market Price Index claims scammers are only willing to spend up to $11 for this information today and are targeting arguably less well-secured services instead.
Matt Watson says he may be leaving YouTube—and as a result of his detectiving, so are some big advertisers, at least for now. “Over the past 48 hours, I have discovered a wormhole … into a soft-core pedophile ring,” the video creator said in a clip posted Sunday that’s since…
Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 Plus passes its first test with flying colors to wins top marks for photos.
By some accounts, the open source world is about to end as evil cloud empires suck the marrow from fragile open source communities, giving little back. This narrative has taken hold, leading some doomsday prophets to preach the end of open source sustainability as we know it.
Pilot fish at a local school takes a couple of days off, and when he returns to work, the resident clownfish is acting odd and smiling a lot. And when the IT director yells at the clownfish to “get that damn thing out of here,” pilot fish is mystified.
But then the clownfish crawls under pilot fish’s desk and retrieves a small electronic device that he says produces a sound like crickets. How did the boss even know it was there? fish wonders. How could he not know, clownfish retorts, with his door open and this thing chirping away nonstop?

Sometimes, a crazy type of technology comes along that you just know is going to change everything — to usher in a completely new style of productivity and revolutionize the very way we work, play, and sing our silly ol’ sailor songs.
I hate to be the curmudgeonly old grouch sipping cream soda on the corner (that’s what curmudgeonly old grouches do, isn’t it?), but lemme tell ya: Samsung’s newly announced Galaxy Fold is not that item.
The Galaxy Fold, in case you’ve spent the past 24 hours folded up on a couch and slumbering, is Samsung’s latest and greatest “next big thing” — one of the company’s trademark wild ideas that’s bound to draw accolades and attention. The device, in short, is an Android phone that folds out to reveal an Android tablet. Wild, right?!
