When it comes to buying a car there are a lot of factors to take note of. Here is a fun short quiz from the folks at jalopnik.com that will you make your choice. The quiz has some very interesting questions and comes up with even more unreal answers. There is no highly sophisticated algorithm when it comes to this quiz. It’s all based on your desires. Some of which you didn’t know you had.
If you were one of those that thought that ApplePay can not make your wallet obsolete because your driver’s license still needs a place to call home, we have some needs for you. Soon you won’t have to carry a physical card with you. The Iowa Department of Transportation will begin allowing those that get a new driver’s licenses to also use an iPhone app to show their license.
At a state agency budget meeting the director of the Department of Transportation in Iowa said plans for these digital driver’s licenses are moving forward very fast. Even so, the digital driver’s licenses app wont come out until 2015. We hope it takes off so more states can follow along in Iowa’s footsteps.
We are really moving forward on this. The way things are going, we may be the first in the nation.Having this really allows people to protect their identity.

Some think it was North Korea but the country denied involvement even though it cheered the Guardians of Peace for implementing the hack against Sony.
The Sony Pictures hack may be done but like the Snowden files, the leaks will keep coming for months and months. As more information comes to light about how it took place it becomes clear there were mistakes. Just like Target could have done more with its security, Sony could have done a lot more as well.
“We have tremendous respect for Kevin Mandia and the team he’s assembled at FireEye’s Mandiant, but we completely disagree with the statement he made over the weekend. He is clearly offering Sony the opportunity to hide behind the veil of advanced persistent threats. ~Ken Levine, president and CEO of security service provider Digital Guardian
The data breach Sony had a few weeks ago at the hands of Guardians of Peace (GOP) was the largest hack in a long time. The group got away with 100 terabytes of data containing sensitive information.… Read the rest
