State Department Announces That Great Firewall For The US; Blocks Chinese Apps & Equipment (techdirt)

Forget banning TikTok, the Trump State Department just suggested it wants to basically ban China from the internet.

12 top cybersecurity VCs discuss investing, valuations and no-go zones

Cybersecurity is by far the most important area in any industry. Without it, we would be in hacker open season. But cybersecurity is difficult to get right.

That’s why there’s such an intense focus on cybersecurity from an investor’s point of view. How does an investor know what’s a worthwhile security solution and not snake oil?

The Never-Ending Death of Smart Home Gadgets

I got my smart TV in early November 2016. It was a 50-inch Samsung—the largest size I could convince my then skeptical roommate to shell out for. We scored a modest deal. At roughly $600 split between two poor millennials, it wasn’t half-bad. (Though, in retrospect, I should have waited until Black Friday.) It was,…Read more...
