Tech News
Russian hackers placed ‘digital bomb’ in Nasdaq
CNN Money – Russian hackers managed to slip a "digital bomb" into the Nasdaq — one with the potential to sabotage the stock market’s computers and wreak havoc on the U.S. economy.

That’s according to an investigative report by Bloomberg Businessweek, which revealed the details of a 2010 cybergrenade that never detonated.

European Cell phone usage
How does the per capita rates of cell phone users compare across the world.  (Depending on where you look you will see different numbers, so this is another approximation.)

Edward Snowden Meets with Hackers
Edward Snowden made an impassioned call on Saturday for hackers and technologists to help would-be whistleblowers spill more government secrets.

Speaking via remote Google Hangouts video feed from Russia, Snowden addressed his comments to an audience at this weekend’s Hackers on Planet Earth (HOPE) conference at the Pennsylvania Hotel in New York

Ron’s Android App Recommendation
(This app can be found on Google Play from your Android phone,
tablet or viewed on your PC from the link below.)
Get Pocket (formerly known as Read It Later)

Get Pocket LogoPut articles, videos or pretty much anything into Pocket. Save directly from your browser or from apps like Twitter, Flipboard, Pulse and Zite. If it’s in Pocket, it’s on your phone, tablet or computer. You don’t even need an Internet connection. Basically you can create your own informational magazine. Then go back to the phone/table app or log into from any computer.

Pocket apps are out there for every smart phone made today. Go to your store and download it for free.

Rainy Mood
Since I had a lot of feedback from people regarding from the last show, I figured you would like Rainy Mood too.

Instead of office murmur how about a gentle rain storm for a nice background sound?

Math Way
Having trouble with math? Apparantly this site can solve any sort of math problem you have. Calculus, Statistics, Pre-Algebra, Algebra and even plan old Basic Math.

There are even some Practice questions for up to the 8th grade.

Until next time have a great time online but most importatnly everywhere else too!
