The Internet of Things holds great promise but also massive threats.

While the Internet of Things (IoT) held great promise for a utopian future in which everything was connected to everything else, there were also huge security risks.

“Despite the very best efforts by IT security experts in academia and industry, manufacturers continue to bring devices with huge security flaws to market.

“At the same time, consumers are criminally negligent by not changing the passwords of new devices and making it dead-easy for hackers to penetrate their networks,” said Professor SH (Basie) von Solms, Director of the Centre for Cyber Security in the Academy for Computer Science and Software Engineering at the University of Johannesburg.


Millennial parents, a.k.a. Parennials, are tech addicts.

Today’s new parents are the Millennials, a cohort of those born between 1980 and 2000.

I came across a Treehugger’s article: which was quite informative and related to me as a ” Parennial”

It’s said that no generation wants to do things the way their parents did, and the Millennials are no exception to the rule.

This generation is often criticized for its lack of maturity, its inability to cope with stressful situations and its obsession with narcissistic social media — all of which makes it rather interesting to see how they’re handling parenthood, arguably the most challenging job in the world.
