  • 'Collection #1' Breach Is Huge, But Should You Be Worried?
    'Collection #1' Breach Is Huge, But Should You Be Worried?

    This week's news about an 87GB data dump containing 773 million email addresses was only the tip of iceberg. The dealer behind the dump has been circulating six other databases to the hacker community, which contain even more stolen credentials.

  • Microsoft Azure
    Microsoft Azure

    Microsoft has been pouring resources into its Microsoft Azure public cloud architecture for several years now and it shows—especially in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) arena. Where Microsoft Azure (which begins at $14,300 per year for an eight-server Web app package, as described below) was once an also-ran, it's now one of the top contenders in the public cloud space, going head-to-head with IaaS behemoths such as Editors' Choice winner Amazon Web ServicesCall for Pricing at Amazon(AWS) and Google Cloud PlatformCall for Pricing at Google (GCP) across price, capability, and performance. And that's evident for more than just businesses who have standardized on Windows. Linux users are finding a very welcome home on Microsoft Azure, and it's worth a look no matter what distro you like. Only its high price and middle-of-the-road performance kept it out of winning the Editors' Choice award this time around.

  • Philosophy for plebeians and commoners
    Philosophy for plebeians and commoners

    If, by chance, you happen into a conversation about philosophy with a philosophy major, often times the conversation will forcibly shifted towards how they see their studies as criminally undervalued by the rest of academia and that philosophy is the most useful degree in existence. From experience, I feel that I can say definitively that the only concept held to be universal among all philosophers is the belief that everyone needs to take them more seriously. Given that these ideas are backed by many brilliant thinkers whom I need not question, I’ve decided to use my prestigious platform as a humor writer for a school newspaper to provide a public service—to enlighten the layman and the dilettante so that they might better appreciate the brilliance of the philosophical mind. To do that, we shall start our journey in the birthplace of philosophy: the genius of Ancient Greece.
