The hackers responsible for the Sony cyber attack have leaked a treasure trove of data stolen from the company’s computer network, revealing many details regarding Sony’s current and future business plans, as well as many personal details concerning Sony employees.

You’ll never want to fly again after watching this video of a plane in a winter storm

Apple’s response to the BBC’s sweatshop labor report is completely tone deaf

Apple is a terrific company in many ways but it often does not handle criticism all that well. Although there have been times when Apple has shown a commendable willingness to own up to its mistakes — Tim Cook’s apology for the Apple Maps fiasco is one example — just as often it will get overly defensive and will insist, despite evidence to the contrary, that it hasn’t made any mistakes. Recall the company’s initial response to “Antennagate,” in which it told customers that they were holding their phones the wrong way, to get an idea of what I’m talking about. More →

Obama comes out swinging against North Korea, says Sony made a ‘mistake’ pulling the film

President Barack Obama on Friday had tough words not only for North Korea — which earlier in the day had been named by the FBI as the chief culprit in the massive hack of Sony Pictures — but also for Sony itself. In particular, Obama said that he thinks Sony “made a mistake” by pulling the film from theaters in response to threats it had received from hackers tied to the North Korean government. More →

BostInno has put together a list of 10 essential tricks that pro photographers use to make sure their iPhones take first-rate pictures and while some are pretty obvious — most of us know to hold our phones horizontally at this point and to not use the pinch-to-zoom function unless it’s completely necessary — others really caught our attention as things we’ve never thought of before.

Obama is holding a news conference to discuss North Korea’s Sony hack – watch live right here

By on December 19, 2014 at 1:15 PM.

North Korea hacked Sony Pictures Entertainment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s deep investigation into the cyber attack has determined as much, and the U.S. government confirmed it publicly on Friday morning. You can read the FBI’s full statement right here. North Korea’s attack on Sony Pictures is believed to be a direct result of the studio’s upcoming movie “The Interview,” which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as two journalists who conspire to kill North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

The theatrical release of “The Interview” has now been cancelled as Sony continues to comply with several of the North Korean hackers’ demands in an attempt to prevent them from leaking additional documents that were stolen in the hack.

Now, President Barack Obama is holding a news conference to address the Sony hack and the FBI’s findings. More →
