Man From Spain Arrested For Slowing Down The Whole Internet, plus Evernote -Tech Talk
It was called the biggest cyberattack in history. It started as a little war between companies, but it ended up slowing the whole internet down. And now the guy is under arrest.
According to the BBC, Cyberbunker ( a web hosting company) got put on a span list, and they weren't happy and attacked them back. It's almost nuking a company in the way that they attacked them.
One man has been arrested in the attack. According to CNN.com,
The suspect, a 35-year-old Dutch citizen, traveled around Spain in a van he used as a mobile office, Spain's National Police said in a statement Sunday.
How can a guy in a van bring the entire internet down? That's amazing, isn't it? They haven't released his name, and don't ask me to explain how he did it, but I guess it's still affecting some sites, like Netflix.
The Best Organizing App Ever
I love this app, and use it every chance I get. It's called Evernote. It allows you to remember anything and everything. You can save your ideas, things you like, things you hear, ANYTHING. These things are all searchable. Say you see a sign or a business card. Take a picture of it, and then if you search for it, it will read the text of the sign and display it.
You can access it on your iPad, iPhone, Android device, laptop, desktop, anything. The basic version is free to try. Very worthwhile. You won't go a day without it. You can even email things to it to save.
