With many high-profile password leaks nowadays, there is a lot of buzz in the industry on "multi-factor" authentication. In a multi-factor authentication system, users are required to go through two distinct authentication procedures: providing something they know (e.g., username/password), and leveraging something they have "physical" access to (e.g., one-time passcode generated by their mobile phone).

Spark is a company inspired by Zach Supalla's deaf feather. "My dad has lights in his house that flash when someone rings the doorbell. I wanted to make lights that would flash when my mom texted him, so they could stay in better touch," explains Zach. This led Zach to create a connected lighting product that his team launched on Kickstarter in late 2012 called the Spark Socket. The Socket was unsuccessful, but afterwards Zach pivoted his team to focus on developing tools for others building connected products.

Happy birthday to you all at the Institute for Information Law. I would sing you "Happy Birthday". But technically I think the song is still under copyright — I don't want to have to pay the royalty.Today the debate about information, innovation, and intellectual property can be complex, personal, and heated. Our duty as lawmakers is to find a balance between creators and the justified interests of society. Yet that balance is changing. Transforming technology is changing how people use and re-use information. And disrupting a longstanding legal framework. Already today that framework seems dated — if not irrelevant. Every day that passes it becomes more so.

This isn't about which company is copying from which—this kind of integration is a logical next step for both Apple and Google after years of moving various operating systems and services closer and closer together. This is about ecosystem lock-in. All of these features sound like great, logical ways to extend both companies' platforms, since you can often assume that someone using an Apple phone will be using an Apple computer. They're also going to make it harder than ever to extricate yourself from a given company's ecosystem once you've become embedded in it.

Learn how to install Hacklang, configure the Apache server to talk to the Hack instance and then build a Hack app. A little while ago Facebook unleashed a new programming language unto the world. That language is called Hack and it’s what we’re going to be looking at today. Hack is unique in that, unlike a lot of new languages, it hasn’t been released at or before v1. For the past couple of years Facebook has been working on writing Hack and porting the desktop version of their service to it, meaning that Hack has already proven to be a system that’s fully capable of running huge websites – and these days, it doesn’t get much bigger than Facebook.

The connected car is shifting into high gear, and the Linux Foundation wants an open-source platform in the pole position. The non-profit consortium recently announced the debut of Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), a customizable, open-source automotive software stack with Linux at its core. There have been Linux-based car systems before. The difference here is that the Linux Foundation is pushing AGL as the core automotive system for developers—the groundwork, as opposed to a production-ready system like Ford Sync or QNX. As Debian Linux is to Ubuntu, so the AGL aims to be for a future in-car system from the Hyundais and Toyotas of the world.

A very interesting question has come out regarding a story on the NSA's targeting of those who utilize internet privacy tools, specifically the browser Tor (The Onion Router) and portable Linux based operating system Tails (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) as potential "terrorists" and "extremists". The question being is that the copy of the XKeyscore code published by German website Das Erste apparently was not a part of the collection of NSA documents procured by whistleblower Edward Snowden but may actually have come from a second leaker. If true this would be a bombshell as well as a game-changer that could reverberate throughout the world and shake the US national surveillance state to its very roots.
