TwitterFacebook

Beyoncé, queen of everything including online privacy protection, changes her email address so frequently that it’ll make you rethink your entire life.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, singer and recent Beyoncé collaborator Ed Sheeran revealed that his friend Bey changes her email address every damn week. And you probably thought you took extra precautions by occasionally changing your password. LOL.

Apple sends email to some iPhone Upgrade Program members who lost their place in line for iPhone X

Last week, Apple kept insinuating that members of its iPhone Upgrade Program had a head start on others when it came to the process of pre-ordering an Apple iPhone X. That’s because those subscribed to the program were able to fill out certain paperwork and have it ready to submit to Apple before pre-orders started getting accepted yesterday morning. Now, Apple has been forced to send out an email to iPhone Upgrade Program members who encountered problems with their pre-order on Friday.

The email starts by saying that the program subscriber might have had an issue getting a loan. The iPhone …

Instagram breach results in up to 6 million users' phones and email adresses being sold for 10 bucks a pop

If you’ve been on the internet in the past, say, five years or so, you’ve undoubtedly at some point been the target of a request to enable two-factor authentication for some online service. And while giving away your phone number to a random corporation doesn’t sound like the best idea ever, this is one of the best ways to protect your accounts against unauthorized third parties.

But it seems that even a huge tech giant like Facebook has a bit of a trouble with not just giving away users’ private info — a report from Variety has just highlighted …

Apple CEO Tim Cook takes a firm stand against racism in an email to all employees

Apple chief executive Tim Cook took a firm stand against racism in an email to all employees. The email comes after the Charlottesville tragedy, where white supremacists clashed with anti-racist groups. A few hours later, one rallygoer roared his Dodge Chrysler at a crowd of pedestrians, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others. A state police helicopter monitoring the rally crashed a few hours later, resulting in the death of two state troopers. All of this, called for a response by the highest officials and a response came, just not the one that …

Why no one has 're-invented' email yet

TwitterFacebook

You may remember the great tech crisis of 2014: Email was broken! We were getting so overwhelmed by the deluge of messages flooding our inboxes that we were missing more of the important ones. Our inboxes had evolved from helpful, at-times-cheery (“You’ve got mail!”) tools into overstuffed lockers of digital dread.

I’m not talking about about spam, either. That problem was more or less solved in the late 2000s with better filtering.
