The latest startup to “catch Silicon Valley’s eye” is a company called Juicero that’s selling, essentially, a $700 Keurig for organic cold-pressed juice.

Silicon Valley giants are betting on its success.

Trump Hotels Is Investigating Claims That Hackers Stole Customers’ Credit Card Data 

GOP presidential candidate and sentient sac of millions of spiders Donald Trump—literally more spiders than you’ve ever seen—does not have

Why Hackers With Sketchy Pasts Should Avoid ‘Hack the Pentagon’

The Department of Defense launched a new program last week, “Hack the Pentagon,” to reward hackers for pointing out security flaws in some of its public-facing websites.
