Hsieh had retired from Zappos, the iconic online shoe retailer, earlier this year after 21 years. He’d also been a key figure in revitalizing downtown Las Vegas, as well as an inspiration to other entrepreneurs.
“It is with very heavy hearts that we are sharing some very sad news with all of you, as we have learned that Tony passed away earlier today,” Zappos CEO Kedar Deshpande said in a letter posted to the company’s website.
Shekinah and Orlandria Lennon were sitting at their kitchen table this fall, taking online classes, when video of their teachers and fellow students suddenly froze on their laptop screens. The wireless antenna on the roof had stopped working, and it couldn’t be fixed.
Desperate for a solution, their mother called five broadband companies, trying to get connections for their home in Orrum, N.C., a rural community of fewer than 100 people with no grocery store or traffic lights.
All the companies gave the same answer: Service is not available in your area.
“It’s not fair,” said Shekinah, 17. “I don’t think just the people who live in the city should have internet. We need it in the country, too.”
Millions of American students are grappling with the same challenges, learning remotely without adequate home internet service. About 15 million K-12 students lived in households without adequate online connectivity or remote
In 2008, researcher Dan Kaminsky revealed one of the more severe Internet security threats ever: a weakness in the domain name system that made it possible for attackers to send users en masse to imposter sites instead of the real ones belonging to Google, Bank of America, or anyone else. With industrywide coordination, thousands of DNS providers around the world installed a fix that averted this doomsday scenario.
Now, Kaminsky’s DNS cache poisoning attack is back. Researchers on Wednesday presented a new technique that can once again cause DNS resolvers to return maliciously spoofed IP addresses instead of the site that rightfully corresponds to a domain name.
“This is a pretty big advancement that is similar to Kaminsky’s attack for some resolvers, depending on how [they’re] actually run,” said Nick Sullivan, head of research at Cloudflare, a content-delivery network that operates the 18.104.22.168 DNS service. “This is amongst the most
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto interrupted a Trump campaign news conference after election fraud allegations.
DETROIT – Armchair internet sleuths, amplified by Donald Trump Jr. and the creator of the comic strip Dilbert, are trying to prove dead people voted in the 2020 election using a list of 14,000 registered voters in Michigan who are older than 100.
Twitter suspended the account of the user who may have first posted the list. That user, @phalarisaqua, captioned his tweet “ahh oh no I was refilling my vape and I accidentally pasted a list of Michigan voters born 100+ years ago a ha.” The tweet linked to a list onPastebin, which has since been removed. Pastebin is a site where people can publicly post plain text. It is often used by coders to share scripts.
Another Twitter user, @PhocaeanD, tweeted the list and credited the original poster, but

Noem sparred with host George Stephanopoulos over everything from the coronavirus to allegations of voter fraud.

Search engine optimisation (SEO) has been a prominent strategy in marketing plans for over 20 years. But for the sake of businesses, marketers and SEO professionals alike, it’s time we call it. SEO is dead.
As a digital marketer who has run two marketing companies offering SEO services, it’s not a statement I make lightly, but it is a statement I believe wholeheartedly.
Let’s look at the cold, hard SEO facts.
1. Confusion reigns supreme
When you ask someone what SEO is, every single person on the planet will give you a different answer. When you pay somebody to do SEO, they all do different things, without a clear overriding mandate of what’s involved.
Most customers don’t know what’s good SEO and what’s bad, and nearly all get a general feeling of unease. Read: ‘smoke and mirrors’.
Micromax has launched two IN series phones targeted at budget buyers.
The Micromax IN Note 1 and IN 1b aim to compete with budget phones from the likes of Redmi and Realme.
They will go on sale starting November 24.
Micromax, the homegrown Indian smartphone company, is making yet another effort at reclaiming its lost glory. The brand once sat at the top of the Indian smartphone market but has since been wiped out by Samsung, Xiaomi, Vivo, and others.
Today, Micromax announced its new IN series smartphones — the IN Note 1 and IN 1b — specifically to take on Chinese smartphone players. The two phones are powered by Mediatek chipsets, run stock Android 10 with a promise of two major OS upgrades, and have a large 5,000mAh battery each.
The Micromax IN Note 1 is the more premium of the two with the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset and
VPNs, or virtual private networks, are a mainstay of corporate network security (and also consumers trying to stream Netflix while pretending to be from other countries). VPNs create an encrypted channel between your device (a laptop or a smartphone) and a company’s servers. All of your internet traffic gets routed through the company’s IT infrastructure, and it’s almost as if you are physically located inside your company’s offices.
Despite its ubiquity though, there are significant flaws with VPN’s architecture. Corporate networks and VPN were designed assuming that most workers would be physically located in an office most of the time, and the exceptional device would use VPN. As the pandemic has made abundantly clear, fewer and fewer people work in a physical office with a desktop computer attached to ethernet. That means the vast majority of devices are now outside the corporate perimeter.
Red Dead Redemption 2’s latest weekly update introduces a new legendary animal for you to hunt or sample in Red Dead Online. There are also new weapons and cosmetic items to unlock or purchase, and XP bonuses for taking part in Red Dead’s special Halloween event, Dead of Night.
The Legendary Iwakta Panther is terrorizing the townsfolk near Braithwaite Manor, with several labourers and animals falling victim to the dangerous predator.

FINNEAS continues to prove himself as a songwriter with the release of his new track, “Can’t Wait to Be Dead.”
The acoustic guitar-driven midtempo track sounds like a young man’s take on what the world is like. And with the continuing pandemic and the upcoming election, he is — but there’s a twist.
More from SPIN:
“I’m happy for this song to mean anything to anyone who listens to it but to me, it’s a song about my relationship with the internet,” he said in a statement. “Especially in an election year. Especially during a pandemic. Sometimes, the internet makes me laugh, sometimes it makes me cry, sometimes it makes me hopeful. But sometimes, it really makes me wanna be dead.”
And while the song is great on its own merits, Finneas will be dropping a visual directed by Constellation Jones
