Kudos to Mr. Cook for coming out and saying what needed to be said. I applaud him for his candor, and saying it with the approval of his board. He has helped to move diversity to a point of acceptance by many who otherwise have disapproved. The world needs...

We continue to read the same story with a different retail system involved. The story is the same, but there is a different villain each time. I can't help but think of the old movies or books where the castle where the queen lives protected by a moat is...

It sounds like more data means more availability for hackers to do what they have already done to Target and Home Depot. "Houston, we have a problem."
