Breaking Down the Newest INCREDIBLES 2, READY PLAYER ONE, and PAC RIM Trailers | Nerdist
Hollywood apparently decided to drop all the movie trailers this week, so on today's Nerdist News Talks Back we broke down all of them, including the latest from The Incredibles 2, Ready Player One, and Pacific Rim Uprising. Joining our host Jessica Chobot today was associate editor Kyle Anderson, Nerdist News writer Aliza Pearl, and Mothership writer Amy Vorpahl, and they flew into action with the new look we got during the Winter Games for Pixar's long-awaited followup to The Incredibles. What do we think of it? Are we excited for the film, or has too much time passed since the original? How do we think it might address modern day superhero movies? And what are the odds it could actually be even better than the first film? Warner Bros. also dropped another Easter egg-filled trailer for Ready Player One today, and it had some obvious changes from the novel. Are we happy about this, or do we hope it mostly sticks to the book? What new elements do we think we'll like? Are we looking

"The takeaway for enterprises is that as political and/or military tension increases, so do the volume and sophistication of malware propagation and use," the report stated. "Within specific verticals, we have also shown that each is plagued by a peculiar mix of malware types, families, and threat actors, which gives each person, business, nation, country, and even continent a unique malware profile. This insight is critical because it should encourage each enterprise to create a unique set of network defenses ideally constructed for the particular set of threat actors and operations it faces."

Google to acquire Xively IoT platform from LogMeIn
As for LogMeIn, which acquired Xively in 2014 for $12 million , they acknowledged in their company blog post announcing the deal, that they intend to exit the IoT space . “So the obvious question is, does this mean LogMeIn is exiting the IoT? Well, if you mean the IoT connectivity platform space, yes, we’re leaving it. We believe that Google Cloud, now armed with Xively’s team and great technology – and backed by their platform and developer heritage and reach – are a far better fit for the future of platform leadership,” they wrote. They are probably right about that.

Ridiculous microwave myths you can stop believing

This experiment supposedly proved that using the microwave to heat water alters it enough to kill a plant.
