What Can You Buy with Bitcoin?
This year has been something of a watershed, with a number of merchants â€“ some of them retail giants with billions of dollars in revenue â€“ deciding to accept bitcoin in exchange for goods and services. Many of them are online e-commerce sites, but an increasing number of bricks-and-mortar stores are also now accepting cryptocurrency.
While in the past trying to find a bitcoin-accepting merchant for the item you want was often tricky or even impossible, there are now growing options for people who donÂ´t wish to pick their way through hundreds of listings just to find products vaguely approximating those they want.
The best way to find bitcoin-accepting merchants is via marketplaces and aggregator sites that gather large numbers of supporting establishments together at once. CoinMap.org also offers a visual way to locate bitcoin stores in any geographical area, and new businesses are appearing all the time. However, CoinDesk has summed up some of the more notable examples of both online and real-world stores in the guide below.

Business man kidnaped
Who was William Frank Niehous
William F. Niehous, an American businessman from Ohio, had been given up for dead by almost everyone but his family when he emerged from the Venezuelan jungle on June 30, 1979 â€” gaunt, bearded and longhaired as a hermit â€” three years, four months and two days after being kidnapped by leftist guerrillas.
Mr. Niehous, who died on Oct. 9 at 82, was the head of Venezuelan operations for Owens-Illinois, an American glass bottle company, when he was drugged and abducted from his Caracas home on Feb. 27, 1976. His captors accused the company of bribery and other corrupt dealings with the Venezuelan government. After a few months, the government stopped negotiating with them.

ADVISER: Cybersecurity tips for every business
Every business is, almost by definition, unique. Each faces its own specific risks, including information security risks.
Nevertheless, we have found 13 common principles at the heart of any enterpriseâ€™s information security profile. The order is not necessarily important, but a comprehensive approach is.
Data mapping: A business cannot protect information that it does not know it has. Before undertaking any information security upgrade, the business should confirm its understanding of what types of information it actually gathers, uses and stores; how that information really is used in the companyâ€™s operations; where it is stored; and who interacts with it. For example, a well-secured document management system is a good thing, but if users regularly email documents and save them as attachments, or if they copy them to desktops and mobile storage media, the document management system itself no longer provides security. A realistic assessment of actual information practices is the only way to ensure that security measures meet the real world. First recomended by @InfosecVision in twitter

What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented reality is using technology to superimpose information on the world we see. For example, images and sounds are superimposed over what the user sees and hears. Picture the "Minority Report" or "Iron Man" style of interactivity.
This is rather different from virtual reality. Virtual reality means computer-generated environments for you to interact with, and being immersed in. Augmented reality (also known as AR), adds to the reality you would ordinarily see rather than replacing it.

The bandwidth bottleneck that is throttling the Internet
On 19 June, several hundred thousand US fans of the television drama Game of Thrones went online to watch an eagerly awaited episode ” and triggered a partial failure in the channel´s streaming service. Some 15,000 customers were left to rage at blank screens for more than an hour.
The channel, HBO, apologized and promised to avoid a repeat. But the incident was just one particularly public example of an increasingly urgent problem: with global Internet traffic growing by an estimated 22% per year, the demand for bandwidth is fast outstripping providersÂ´ best efforts to supply it.
Just another brick in the wall
