"They Let Me Know That I Was Not Alone"

Judy Muhe, a 76-year-old from Palmdale, Florida, suffered a hard fall at home alone with her two dogs. She has Parkinson’s disease and was unable to get up on her own, so she drifted in and out of consciousness on her kitchen floor for two horrifying days. The dogs, Higgins and Dodger, were her saving grace. The two swooped in, laying beside Muhe to keep her warm and to comfort her until a friend arrived and found her on the floor. Muhe told “ABC News” her dogs are “angels on four legs” and “my guardians … I have no doubt they would do it again.” [ABC]

The Site That Got Hacked In “The Snappening” Wants Bitcoin For Interviews

Snapsaved is the third-party company that used flaws in Snapchat’s programming to allow users to store their snaps indefinitely, and it was through Snapsaved.com (not through the Snapsaved app) that 90,000 nude snaps were stolen and published online. Snapsaved shut down immediately after the leak, but the damage was already done. The company admitted that it was hacked and apologized to users this weekend.

With all of that out of the way, Snapsaved is now apparently asking journalists for monetary compensation via Bitcoin in response to interview requests. That’s right: Their site was insecure, it left private photos vulnerable, someone hacked it, they’re at least partially responsible for the likely circulation of child porn, and now they’re asking to be compensated for insights on their incompetence. A+, Snapsaved. Keep reading »

We’re Not Alone, Because Mark Zuckerberg Is Also Hella Paranoid About Catching Ebola

While we all take precautions by washing our hands and not making out with so many strangers (and things of that nature), Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was basically like, “Oh, hell no. Ebola is not getting to me,” and decided to donate a boatload of money.

He announced his generous donation earlier today in a Facebook post… Keep reading »
