Half the Internet Goes Down - DDoS Attack Suspected

Yesterday morning as Americans around the country got prepared for their final weekday at work many quickly realized our internet infrastructure was down. As for myself, after repeatedly searching and finding no solution to the cause of each and every clients websites being down, I was left utterly clueless as to what had taken place. Soon the websites that did remain online started reporting information of the cause of a nationwide DDoS attack taking place.

A DDoS attack or Direct Denial of Services is a very common hacker technique that is used to bring down websites. In short a DDoS is when hackers send massive amounts of requests to a server that ultimately takes the server down and the sites hosted on it with it. The unique thing about this DDoS attack compared to most DDoS attacks it that it was targeted against Dyn servers.

Flying Cars of the Future

Anyone who is a fan of science fiction and technological advances has always been thrilled at the idea of a flying car. While it may seem like it is something that still is way into the future, it is slowly but surely becoming something more of a reality. What remains to be seen, is just how far into the future we will see these cars, and who will be the first to bring them to the public? With so many players on the board, there are many ways we could see flying cars become a part of our lives in the very near future.

It has been predicted time and again that in the future people will have cars that fly. Well one Slovakian company released a prototype last year of a car that could have the ability to do so. Their model is a long car that almost resembles the body shape of a helicopter, which has wings that can be stowed in the body. It will be able to navigate road traffic, as well as air traffic, where it will take off and land safely at airports. Their hope is to bring this car to market by 2017, though we will have to wait and see.
