Today we discuss the needs of keeping your software up to date and how A.I. was able to recreate the game of Pac-Man. We finish off with the a look at the new enterprise GPU announcement from NVidia.

Who needs enemies with friends like these?

And we do not mean the good folks behind HaveIBeenPwned here but rather the people that install good software and then never look at upgrading it when vulnerabilities are patched!

A bit of fun looking at how an A.I. recreated the game of Pac-Man, courtesy of NVidia.
