  3. Financial services sector hit hard in last quarter by email phishing attacks

    A report has just come out ranking sectors ranging from airlines to social in terms of email phishing attacks.

  4. NightUp launches NY nightlife app, capitalizing on oddly barren market

    Last Month YPlan, the London-based nightlife event aggregating app, announced its plan to expand to New York. This made sense because the app was quite popular in London with more than 200,000 downloads and had received $12 million funding from both British and US investors. So New York only seemed like a logical extension of its stronghold. According to YPlan, it would release a New York version sometime later this year. No version has been released yet, leaving club-goers to have to [gasp] research from home.

  5. Despite Segway and Fisker, Kleiner Perkins keeps making hardware bets

    Hardware startups are traditionally viewed as risker investments than software companies. They're harder to monetize quickly, and they don't tend to generate the steep viral growth that many software companies boast. In addition, the logistics of managing a supply chain are trickier than distributing digital bits and bytes. Adjusting supply to meet demand is a betting game when hardware is involved, and one that requires a deft and experienced hand.

  6. Why do Salesforce and Oracle keep buying social and marketing companies?

    A great revelation has lodged itself deep inside modern businesses, and it promises to revise the rules around the way customers are discovered, understood, nurtured and acquired, but it also threatens traditional organizational silos and business practices, probably in a good way.

  7. The Book of Mormon: Why the world's most capitalist religion breeds so many entrepreneurs

    On a sunny summer's day in Provo’s North Park, hundreds of children are out with their parents, lining up for pretzels, lining up for face painting, and lining up to pet sheep. On a stage set up in front of a children’s playground, a folk band entertains a crowd of smiling people in shorts and T-shirts. At the park’s north end, men and women dressed in period costume sit on wooden chairs and embroider cloths by hand, spool yards of wool on a knitting wheel, or guide visitors around a pioneer village.

  8. Intuit invites small businesses to take the field for this year’s big game

    At a cost of nearly $4 million for a 30 second spot (not including the millions in production cost), Super Bowl advertising is typically the domain of wealthy Fortune 500 companies and global brands. But Intuit, the company behind QuickBooks, Quicken, and TurboTax, is making this elite promotional opportunity available to one US small business.
