♲ @firstname.lastname@example.org: @Apple 8. We once believed the App rejection is simply a bureaucratic f up, but now it is clearly a political decision to suppress freedom and human right in #HongKong. It is disappointing to see US corps such as @Apple, @NBA, @Blizzard_Ent, @TiffanyAndCo act against #freedom

O.MG! Evil Lightning cable about to hit mass distribution https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2019/10/02/omg-evil-lightning-cable-hits-prime-time/
"Embedded in it is a tiny Wi-Fi transceiver that can operate as an access point or a wireless client. When the victim plugs it into their computer, an attacker within radio distance can connect to the cable with a mobile app and use it to manipulate the computer."
