Getting back to a more technology based theme, here is an interesting article on how current and future technology is at risk of being hacked.  Sure, we all know about wi-fi hacks, but I did not think about solar panels being at risk of hacking, and how the hack could have wider ranging implications than just the house the panels are installed on.  And driver-less cars?  Never crossed my mind that you could climb in and decide to take a nap or something, and all of a sudden find yourself locked in and being driven someplace you did not want to go, and the only way to get out is to pay ransom.

Check out this article, and share your thoughts on it, and anything else you might think of that you never thought would be a security risk.
