Blueborne is apparently the most dangerous new virus around, infecting any Bluetooth-enabled device that comes within range without notice. Everyone has been advised to download or upgrade with a bunch of security precautions; and remain indefinitely vigilant of any new malware that may take advantage of the same vulnerability.

I’ll bet some of you are missing your corded headphones now.

About today’s photo: For any nerds keeping score, the full quote should read “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed” — which is pretty much how I feel about fancy tech like the new iPhone X. Once upon a time, people used to get by without such things and we were absolutely fine.
