With the addition of Battle.net and authenticators, one would think that the age of mass password hacks would be over, sadly they are not. With virtual gold that’s often times worth more than some actual real world currencies, hacking a World of Warcraft or Diablo account can be worth a lot of REAL money. For instance in China, the average person is currently making around 665 Yuans a month or $104 U.S. (source) . This would mean that the theft of $100,000 WOW gold could net a Blizzard account pirate a month’s pay in China (as the average exchange rate is $10 for 10,000 WOW gold). If no market existed, the hacking wouldn’t be half as bad as it is today
Big welcome to WIDGET, a brand new website devoted to women in the fields of science and technology. It’s WIDGET’s hope to build a positive nurturing community for creative types everywhere, and might we just say that the women of WIDGET are already off to an incredible start. With launch articles from Bioware’s Lead Editor Karin Weekes, PC Powerplay’s Meghann O’Neill, Big Top Ballet’s Elizabeth Boylan, Luvapp’s Cleo Whittingham, and TinManGame’s Miellyn Fitzwater Barrows, great advice and stories are already available on day one. … If only we would have had such an impressive launch… sheesh…
The goal of WIDGET is to post a few blogs a week from a variety of females who are fans of creativity and community. With such an impressive launch lineup, we’re expecting some great things in the future. Check out these links from their press release below.
If you’re interested in contributing a blog post or know anyone that would be we are super interested to hear from you! Please contact Leena@widgetau.org for more information, or if you’d like to support WIDGET in another way, check out our support page at http://widgetau.org/support-
