    ‘Secret’ app didn’t actually keep you anonymous

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Secret is supposed to be the anonymous social network. But as of last week, Secret allowed your friends to trace posts back to you. Hackers at Rhino Security Labs figured out a way to dupe Secret’s system. To join Secret’s community, the app imports your contacts. It then labels which posts are from your friends. To prevent you from tracking a particular person, Secret requires that seven of your contacts post to the network before it […]

    Atlanta, Geo.  (CNN) – This is not your grandfather’s — or even your father’s — ol’ football museum. The new College Football Hall of Fame, opening here Saturday, is a gleaming, high-tech shrine to the pageantry of America’s most popular campus sport. Gone, mostly, are the plaques and musty displays of faded uniforms and leather helmets. In their place are vast multimedia touchscreens, movies in 4K ultra-HD, fight-song karaoke and a booth that puts fans into a simulated broadcast of […]
