Geek Reading October 15, 2015

Sorry for the delay in posting yesterday’s links. I totally forgot to hit the publish button!

Business Insider leads the day reporting on some French researchers who can hack Siri from 16 feet away. Interestingly, it uses the wires from the headset to send information. On Google Cloud Platform, they talk about alerting about a metric’s rate of change. This is important because sometimes the metric itself is not very informative, but its trend is. A/B testing may not seem that interesting, but Evan Miller has an excellent post regarding the process and throws in some math to support the idea.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
