Geek Reading August 7, 2015

Some days, the stories you read hit a little closer to home. Yesterday would have been the birthday of my oldest brother, he passed away about two months ago. Seeing the post about surviving the loss of a love on Conversation Agent was a very good way to start the day. Thank you Valeria for a very timely post.

On a less sad note, there are a bunch of interesting security stories, so I recommend you take a look. The BBC reports that experts were able to hack into a Tesla, although the issues have already been fixed. The Next Web tells us more about what the Hacking Team was able to do, and it is highly unpleasant. TechCrunch reports that popular publishing service Wattpad was hacked and “some” passwords were exposed. Keep an eye on that story because it is a very popular service.
