Many wireless keyboard and mice setups connect to computers through a USB dongle and boast that this communication is encrypted. This is to stop hackers from sniffing the wireless connection to monitor keystrokes which can reveal sensitive information including passwords. But at Ruxcon 2016, one security researcher has demonstrated that you can still gain access to a computer using a wireless keyboard, even when the connect is protected by AES, one of the most secure data encryption standards around. No keylogging required.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
