Mobile gaming is having a moment, and Apple has the reins

It’s moved beyond tradition and into the realm of meme that Apple manages to dominate the news cycle around major industry events all while not actually participating in said events. CES rolls around and every story is about HomeKit or its competitors, another tech giant has a conference and the news is that Apple updated some random subsystem of its ever-larger ecosystem of devices and software.

Things you should consider learning before trying to learn to hack

So you want to learn how to hack?

Well there’s a few things you should learn how to do before learning to hack. Some of these may be obvious to some but its not to everybody. Hacking is not something you can just learn to follow steps and practice like learning to play an instrument or learning to ice skate. Hacking is a type of complex problem solving using multiple skill sets and advanced knowledge of psychology, security, networking, computer hardware, programming, debugging and math. There is no one single path to learn how to hack, Everybody does it differently and their own way. The following is a list of things you should be very familiar with before you even consider trying to start hacking as a hobby. You don’t need to follow these in any particular order but they are all equally important so if there is anything you are not familiar with I suggest starting there. If anybody has something to add such as learning resources or additional advice feel free to post below and I will add it if I think it may help.

One client said they were just “chipping away at the stone,” which reminded me of a tune I hadn’t heard in a long while from Aerosmith: “Chip Away the Stone” (a very underplayed song by the way for how good it is, with the B-side live version even better. Click on the link or go to YouTube to listen to it… You won’t be sorry). With only 20% of organizations compliant by the deadline of May 25, 2018, that means you better get-a-chippin’.
