The ban on TikTok has been put on hold hours before it was set to be put into effect. A federal judge blocked the Trump Administration's move to ban TikTok downloads in the U.S. The move gives the app's owners more time to settle a deal with Oracle and Walmart.


A flying car is making news in the Beijing Motor show. The electric Kiwi GoGo has a drone look to it and can carry two people. It is designed to fly 80 ft in the air and don't expect it to hit the market any time soon-- it is only in the research and development phase.

It looks like nothing is safe from hackers- not even your coffee machines! A tech researcher hacked into a smart coffee machine just to see if it was possible. He launched a ransom attack successfully creating a noisy malfunction that could only be stopped by paying up or permanently pulling the plug.
