FBI raids ‘Anonymous’ hackers in New York

The FBI raided the homes of three hackers from the infamous hacking group ‘Anonymous’ in New York, Fox News reported on Tuesday. Reportedly, more than 10 FBI agents stormed the house of Giordani Jordan in Baldwin New York and took “at least one laptop from the premises.” Jordan is suspected to have been behind denial of service (DoS) attacks against a number of firms, including Mastercard and Visa. In addition, agents are also searching homes in Long Island and Brooklyn. The hackers are said to be in their late teens and early 20s. It’s unclear if the hackers were also part of the group LulzSec, which claimed responsibility for hacks against Sony, the U.S. Senate and the CIA. More →

Apple’s job listing clearly calls for candidates who would work at a retail sales location, and it is currently the only job listing found when Brooklyn is specified as the search location. While further details are scarce for the time being, we could be getting fairly close to a grand opening if Apple is already looking for a sales team.

Thanks, Scott! More →

Apple iPhone inexplicably unavailable for NYC via online orders

Picture 2

This one has us scratching our heads. When attempting to order the iPhone for zip codes in Los Angeles, San Francisco and other major cities, everything seems perfectly fine. However, NYC zip codes, more specifically Brooklyn, removes the iPhone as an option for online sales. We called several stores in the NYC area, including one in Brooklyn, and the sales reps said stock was perfectly fine. So we chatted up online sales and they told us it wasn’t available in that area and, as noted by the image below, they couldn’t tell us why: More →
