May Social Media Roundup
The sun is shining and the NDi social media team has been tweeting! In case you missed it, here are a few of our favorite stories from the last month:
- Do you know why ‘correcthorsebatterystaple’ is a more secure password than ‘qeadzcwrsfxv1331’? Ars Technica challenged 3 hackers to decipher over 16,000 cryptographically hashed passcodes and found the methods of their cracking to be eye-opening.
- Been perplexed by Yahoo’s recent moves? Yeah, us too. Wired speculates on the motivation behind Melissa Mayer’s big buys and how they are bringing the Internet portal back.
- Imagine our cars, houses, and coffeepots all talking to each other and coordinating their activities around us. It may sound scary, but also isn’t very far off!
- The people have spoken: Nobody wants to live in Facebook’s Home. Only a month after its release, AT&T dropped the price of its HTC First smartphone, pre-loaded with Facebook Home, from $99 to 99 cents.
