Smart devices like Nest getting hacked in digital home invasions
Arjun and Jessica Sud routinely use a baby monitor to keep tabs on their 7-month-old’s bedroom. Last month, they heard something chilling through the monitor: A deep male voice was speaking to their child. When they passed their Nest thermostat, normally set around 72 degrees, they noticed it had been turned up to 90. Then, the voice was back, coming through the speaker in a downstairs security camera. And this time, it was talking to them.

But seriously

 

Let’s have a look at the persona that is GeorgePreddy in World of Tanks.

 

You’re a prodigious forum poster with a definite point of view that doesn’t appear to waiver. Now, while some players may have reservations about certain aspects of the game, you most certainly don’t. Good for you, friend.

 

You’re a unicum in terms of WN8 and a super unicum with your ‘recents’ – admittedly the average tier is 3.87, but still…

 

You’ve regaled the forum with your exploits as a former pilot, owning a plane and being married to a wonderful woman who apparently speaks a number of languages.

 

I would suggest the question you should actually be asking is: ‘who wouldn’t be fascinated by your life?’

 

Cheers                       

 

You are right about most of what you wrote here... a couple of corrections, though.

 

My avg. tier in my unicum account (play4funz) is actually 5.48... not high, but better than the account you checked.

 

I am still currently a pilot, but I am a former professional pilot.

 

It's true that most people who lead rather ordinary lives might well be fascinated by mine.

 

But what I asked about is your fixation with my wife & marriage.

 

Anyway...

ESO’s exquisitely sensitive GRAVITY instrument has added further evidence to the long-standing assumption that a supermassive black hole lurks in the centre of the Milky Way. New observations show clumps of gas swirling around at about 30% of the speed of light on a circular orbit just outside a four million solar mass black hole — the first time material has been observed orbiting close to the point of no return, and the most detailed observations yet of material orbiting this close to a black hole.  This video starts with a wide view of the Milky Way and then zooms into a visualization of data from simulations of orbital motions of gas swirling around at about 30% of the speed of light on a circular orbit around the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A*.
