You know how some people have a sticker over their MacBook's webcam? Well, those people might be onto something.  Wired reports that Apple recently patched a nasty Safari bug, which allowed hackers to take over the victim's webcam and microphone and spy on them.  The bugs (there were several of them) were found by security researcher Ryan Pickren.

If you have an unquenchable thirst for streamed content and a few bucks to spare each month, Quibi would like a moment of your time. An actual moment, in this case. The short-form video app is launching Monday in the U.S. and Canada after months of attention-grabbing headlines involving its star-studded original shows.

Like organizations and individuals around the world, the district had turned to Zoom to remotely carry on its business during coronavirus-necessitated social distancing orders.  However, in recent weeks, Zoom's data collection practices, lack of security...
