    Tragically, their teams dressed as mosquitoes for that year’s halloween party and were all killed on the way through the front doors. Thus the technology was buried and swept under the rug of 240p.

    Any and everything that is conectes to the WiFi or network or just a signal can be “hacked”. The only problem with finding a way to catch that signal and manipulate it is the gadget. Is it already made or not. If the program is already out there or do I have to create one? Credit cards, phone company’s, the biggest and most impressive company’s that you wouldn’t expect to be hacked can be hacked. You can’t slow and hacker down either it’s happening or not. They put firewalls and they are effective. These company’s have protection because it’s a complicated network that has more than one source you have to enter before you do anything else. Surprise is when ever a company say apple, Microsoft or a tech company coming up gets hacked, and when the hacker is arrested or a deal is set, the company that believed they were safe contacts the individual or individuals and basically ask them how they did it. Why? Because he saw something no one saw. He figured out how to beat them. Most the time charges are dropped unless is federal or government based situation but they offer them a job. Sure they don’t have to since they already repaired or fixed the problem in no problem. The point is he got in, and the problem is they don’t know how. When Sony was hacked years back they actually hired those hackers to improve their system and basically fix the problem their people missed. Hackers are smart individuals because they don’t see or think like others such as a cashier they are totally different. They view something as a problem they have to figure out and if there isn’t one, they make them to fix them. A phone I’m the 80’s could have been used as the start of a hack or phreaking. Nowadays everything that has a signal is open. Something small as a watch that shows time and TVclip videos. He showed a key could be used to open any model of car the same as the key car model its for. Hackers are the best people because they find a solution or make something shown as strong but is really weak. This ted talk was intriguing because they were laughing and it’s was funny but for the wrong reasons. Don’t believe when it says secure because nothing is, things are only more time and thinking based to figure out the weak points like with the amazon system. Trial and error. What if we could create a code a system that would not only stop the hack but put a rouse on as if they were. Idk what I’m talking about anymore brain fart

      Yeah, this dude didn't show anything related to hacking. Especially with that credit card scanning. He did show that in modern times our data isn't as private as it may seem, and all it takes to uncover your data is someone creative that also has a technological know-how, but was it really hacking?
