The “Epic” Twitter Hack

The hacking of Twitter accounts belonging to prominent members of society has all of us asking: How in the world did something like this happen?  At surface level, you would think that it was an individual who acted upon this but come to find out, it involved an entire team of users to accomplish what happened.

Brian Krebs does an excellent job of summarizing exactly what happened and the objective that were behind it.  Check out the full scoop here at KrebsonSecurity.com and let me know what you think!

Nvidia > Intel

If someone were to tell me ten years ago that in 2020, Nvidia would be worth more than Intel in terms of market capitalization value I would have thought you were crazy.

According to Marketwatch via PCGamer.com, Nvidia has a net worth of $251 billion dollars with Intel checking in at around $248 billion.

My how the tables have turned!
