  1. Hey, Windows XP users: Microsoft won't come to your rescue anymore, says security expert

    Last week a huge security flaw was discovered exploiting a security hole in old versions of Internet Explorer. Attackers lured IE users to websites, which then used malicious code to remotely steal users data. Days later, Microsoft patched the security hole. What's most notable about this patch, however, is that it was extended to Windows XP.

  2. Working Families Party joins the anti-Airbnb brigade

    The latest to join the fight against Airbnb in New York is the progressive Working Families party, a political group known for its staunch defense of labor unions and affordable housing. Earlier this week, the organization launched a petition urging its members to stand in solidarity with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's attempt to subpoena users' data from apartment-sharing platform. Working Families' reason is simple: Airbnb is bringing up the rent despite what the company says.

  3. AngelList darling MakeSpace raises $8M Series A to give New Yorkers an easier way to store their stuff

    The biggest problem of living in New York is living comfortably in New York: Everything is more expensive and space is always cramped. This is doubly so when it comes to housing. The amount I paid for an apartment in Cambridge a few years back nearly doubled when I moved to the Big Apple, yet my square footage dropped a sizable percent. Mind you, I lived with roommates in both instances.

  4. SkillBridge is racing to become the freelance consultants' marketplace

    Finding the correct technical talent is hard enough for companies; hiring the right consultants is another issue altogether. There are big consulting firms out there such McKinsey & Company and Bain & Company. Acquiring the services of these firms, however, is quite often too expensive and burdensome for those that needs a quick stint from a seasoned consultant. Additionally, knowing how to find the best freelancers out there is another crapshoot unless you have the right contacts.

  7. Medicare data reveals geographic and economic inequalities

    Earlier this month the federal government released a giant trove of data enumerating precisely where Medicare funds were spent in 2012. Since then, there have been many revelations about where and how this government funding is being put to use. One report highlighted how only 100 doctors in the country received $610 million of the funding. Another looked at how the top Medicare billers spent a great deal of their money pushing more expensive drugs.

  8. Ad platform Decisive thinks transparency makes for better mobile ads

    Mobile ads are becoming more and more common, and more often than not they are annoying. Decisive's David Dundas thinks this may be due to a lack of transparency on the ad analytics side. If advertisers don't really know how their ads are performing, how in the hell are they going to create good, effective ads that not only don't annoy people, but also convert customers?
