Samsung Galaxy S5′s fingerprint scanner already hacked and Jim Dalrymple's Reaction

When it comes to Samsung’s fingerprint scanner technology embedded in the home button on the new Galaxy S5, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that we have spent plenty of time testing it, and we’ve found that it works very well. The bad news, however, is that it has apparently already been hacked, leaving Galaxy S5 owners’ devices and their PayPal accounts at risk.
Of course had this happened to Apple it would be on CNN and the sky would fall. Also, Jim’s reaction is priceless.

Oh Canada. Oh... shit.

Canada’s taxpayers may be the first victims of the Heartbleed bug that put the web on high alert last week. According to the Canada Revenue Agency, 900 social insurance numbers (SINs) were stolen by hackers exploiting the security vulnerability. Even on a small scale, the breach is tantamount to identity theft, and is a situation the CRA had worked hard to avoid.

This is… not good.

The CRA does state that no other breaches before or after the one in question have taken place. The agency is now in the process of contacting affected individuals via registered mail, has set up a dedicated 1-800 number for people in need of information, and will provide credit protection services at no cost.

Considering the speed of Canada Post, you should know in about 6-8 weeks.


Kirk Baxter edits new Fincher film, "Gone Girl", using Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Notably, Adobe also revealed that director David Fincher’s new film, Gone Girl [pictured, top], is being cut by Kirk Baxter, A.C.E., exclusively with Premiere Pro CC — a major milestone on the long road toward proving Premiere Pro’s usability in a feature-film production environment. If you’ll recall, it was 2003 when Walter Murch finished editing Cold Mountain using Final Cut Pro 3, then considered a radical workflow choice for a major studio picture. Adobe is no doubt hoping to give Premiere a taste of that same kind of success. Adobe has lined up more testimonials, too, from staffers impressed with Premiere’s performance in production for sketches on Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
