*Okay everyone! We’ve officially made a technological segue into the 21st century.
No more looking over your shoulder at the ATM to worry if you’re being robbed! In the information age, the worry has shifted to sitting down at your computer and worrying if your files are there.
Hacking has been a huge problem for some time. But now we have to contend with not only being hacked, but our computer files being held for ransom?! What?! That’s right!
The message you will receive might make you feel like the feds are watching your every little freaky deaky, immoral, maybe even unethical online action.
But the truth is many Internet gangs are making out, like the bandits they are, with something called “ransomware,” according to the Daily Mail.
*T.J. Holmes is putting a fresh spin on hot topics and news with his newest project, “Don’t Sleep with T.J. Holmes.”
The new late-night BET offering has more in common with Jon Stewart, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert than with traditional journalism, BET told potential advertisers on Thursday. The show will feature some of the funniest figures in pop culture who will give their two-cents about today’s most controversial topics.
“Speaking through a unique and smart African American filter, T.J. invites the community to wake up on the issues that affect them; don’t sleep on the stories that mainstream news outlets won’t cover. The show will also open ears with captivating, unexpected musical performances. ‘Don’t Sleep With T.J. Holmes’ reports with keen focus to keep Black America engaged and in the know,” says a statement as reported by Journal-isms.
