Use Voice Dictation to Save Time on Android, iPhone, and iPad
(This is a pretty decent primer on how to use the built-in voice dictation on iOS and Android.)
“Touch-screen keyboards can be slow, especially on phones with small screens. To enter text more naturally, you can use your phone or tablet’s voice dictation feature. Just speak — punctuation included — and your device will convert what you say to text.”

border - Add padding to bordered paragraph - Super User
(If you should need to add padding to a paragraph in Word:)
“‘Cell padding’ as such does not exist in Word, but you can try these: (I have Word 2007 2010 for Windows right now, but the commands should be similar)

1. “Open Borders and Shading dialog (Ribbon -> Home Tab, Paragraph sub tab, click on the arrow near the ‘Borders’ icon)
2. “Click on ‘Borders and Shading’
3. “Click on ‘Options…’
4. “Adjust the values in ‘From text’

“For the left and right ‘padding’ the ‘Left Indent’, ‘Right Indent’ and ‘Hanging Indent’ handles in the ruler may help (View Tab - > Show/Hide -> Ruler if the ruler is not visible)”

NSA Laughs at PCs, Prefers Hacking Routers and Switches | WIRED
The NSA's focus on routers highlights an often-overlooked attack vector with huge advantages for the intruder, says Marc Maiffret, chief technology officer at security firm Beyond Trust. Hacking routers is an ideal way for an intelligence or military agency to maintain a persistent hold on network traffic because the systems aren't updated with new software very often or patched in the way that Windows and Linux systems are.

But if Lynn knew about the vulnerability, there were likely others who did as well – including intelligence agencies and criminal hackers.

Source code for Cisco's IOS has been stolen at least twice, either by entities who were interested in studying the software to gain a competitive advantage or to uncover vulnerabilities that would allow someone to hack or control them.
