Delivering secure and reliable services has been a top priority for developers since day one. Applying the best, most reliable technologies has always been the key to securing a client’s data and traffic. But, due to multiple vulnerabilities found in some core products used to encrypt data and traffic, security practices need to be revisited.
Everyone is using Varnish to speed up their sites nowadays. Varnish greatly decreases page load time on websites with mostly anonymous traffic. But many anonymous sites still need to personalize content a bit based on user geo location, time-of-day, the languages the browser claims to support, etc.

Amazon launched AWS over 11 years ago, and it’s fair to say they’ve been the leader in Infrastructure as a Service for nearly all of the time since then. However when it comes to higher, application level services, they’ve lagged a bit behind the competition. However with the recent launch of several new offerings, they’re beginning to close that gap. At Amazon re:Invent 2016 in November, they launched a suite of services focused around Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing.
We’re seeing reports this morning that a massive security breach associated with WordPress 4.7.0 and 4.7.1 has apparently led to the defacement of up to 1.9 million pages across almost 40,000 domains.
Upgrading to version 4.7.2 should fix the issue and WordPress urges anyone who hasn’t already updated to do so immediately. WordPress actually announced the security issue in a blog post at the beginning of February, but apparently there are still many sites that either weren’t aware or didn’t realize how serious the issue really is.
If you or anyone you know is running a WordPress site, please make sure it is updated to 4.7.2 as quickly as possible.
Back in December we began wondering about what a Donald Trump presidency would mean for Net Neutrality. Well, after the inauguration it took just a couple of days for the rubber to begin accosting the proverbial road. Last week President Trump announced the appointment of Ajit Pai as our new Federal Communications Commission Chairman, and he nestles in snugly with the anti-regulation/roll-it-back swagger of the new administration. Also, as a currently seated Republican FCC commissioner, he does not even need Senate approval to ascend to the Chairman’s role. (BUT: Due to the time left in his current commissioner term, Pai will have to be renominated and reconfirmed sometime this year.)
We had an authentic geek-out moment at the office this morning thanks to the Google Translate app (for iOS or Android). We watched a phone translate written Japanese into English… through it’s camera view via augmented reality! It’s kind of crazy and a little creepy, but mostly just plain awesome.
