By about 3 mins ago.

Watch Dogs is already one of the most hyped game releases of the spring, but Ubisoft’s clever marketing campaign might convince a whole new crowd to check the game out. Digital Shadow is a website being run by Ubisoft which allows Facebook users to see just how vulnerable their information could be to an outside source. By allowing the site to access your account, Digital Shadow will let you know within seconds which contacts you regularly interact with, which words you use most often in status updates and when you’re active on the social network.

Ars Technica reports that Kristin Paget, a former Apple whitehat hacker who now works for Tesla, has been ripping into her former employer for allegedly leaving its users wide open to some potentially serious hacks in the weeks between the releases of iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1.

Life after Heartbleed: ‘The Internet will never be 100% safe’

Heartbleed was an abrupt but necessary reminder that when it comes to the Internet, nothing is safe. The massive OpenSSL security hole was discovered earlier this month, and it affected 66% of the entire Internet at the time of its discovery. Most large websites have patched the bug by now and Heartbleed chatter across the Web is inevitably starting to die down. But as one security expert recently pointed out, patching Heartbleed hardly makes the Internet safe again. More →

Microsoft is finally bringing the Start menu back to Windows in August

One of the most surprising announcements at the Microsoft Build Developers Conference earlier this month was the impending return of the Start menu.

The conference ended without any release information, but according to The Verge, sources close to Microsoft say that the Start menu will be added back to Windows 8.1 in an update coming this August.

New data suggests Galaxy S5 stole a surprising amount of business away from Apple

Earlier this week, we shared data from used gadget trade-in site Gazelle that showed iPhone users, for the most part, appeared to be largely uninterested in switching to Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5.
