This week, Chinese hackers infiltrate The New York Times & The Wall Street Journal, hackers expose 250,000 Twitter accounts, Oreo leverages the Superbowl blackout for a terrific example of social media marketing, is Netflix’s full season release schedule for “House of Cards” the future of television…or a big mistake, will your body –or any biological organism for that matter– be the next unlimited storage device, and if you thought J.J. Abrams hit the motherlode last week for helming both Star Trek and Star Wars franchises, wait’ll you hear this week’s news.
