The new talk of the town lately is Virtual Reality or VR and by extension Augmented Reality or AR. There’s Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg with the Occulus Rift along with many other companies that are trying to “crack” VR. Personally I feel like this is not going to be a game changer right out the gate like everyone is expecting simply because I hear everyone talking about how big it’s going to be. I think the potential is there but what I see in my head is in the very distant future.

CSI:Cyber episode 6 “Gone in 6 seconds” continues the theme of hacking of the Internet of Things(IoT). In the previous episode it was connected medical devices in a hospital. In this episode it’s the hacking of cars, which are more connected every day. Again this brings attention to the topic of car hacking. If anyone thinks this is a gimmick created for the show, something new or something that doesn’t need attention yet. They really need to read this Wired article about just how real this can get. The automobile manufacturers can’t be trusted to get this right. They are more concerned with profits from providing constant connectivity to our always online world. They want to be first to the table with the feature and most of them underestimate how skilled and motivated hackers are out there. They are opening up cars to exploits and we need to hold them responsible for putting security measures in place.
CSI:Cyber episode 5 titled “Hack E.R.” dealt with the hacking of the Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things is the wirelessly internet connected things like fridges, house thermostats, cars and in this episode medical devices. As more and more things become connected to the internet. These things become targets and susceptible to hacking.
