Takeaway: This story made the rounds a couple weeks ago as a humorous tale — and it is — but I'll be curious to see where this company is in a year. I think market analysts constantly underestimate what people will pay for (at least what they believe to be) convenience.

Next Steps Toward More Connection Security

Takeaway: Back in January of this year, Google Chrome began displaying a “Not secure” warning for any HTTP page with credit card number or password fields. In October 2017, Google will extend the warnings to any HTTP page that allows content entry. The solution is to enable HTTPS via Transport Layer Security (TLS) or its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), both often referred to as “SSL.” If your site doesn’t encrypt communication between the server and client browser, you need to begin encrypting data before October, or be prepared to receive complaints from users.
