    Technology, and specifically cloud computing and big data, is a hot sector right now, with many big companies making huge investments and initiatives in this space.  Technology can be great for many things, but it also can lead to epic fails, such as this one.  Maybe it was easier in the old days, with actual Kodak prints in albums and frames, instead of digital Instagramed pictures on iPhones and iPads.  It’s also hard to remember different passwords for all the different websites most people use - Google/Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, etc. - and to keep changing them every 3-6 months.
This is a nicely written article about how one’s digital life got hacked and destroyed in one hour that appeared earlier this week in Wired… sad that it happened, but yes… it can happen to anyone.
