Chair of Apple Inc. Keeps I-pads away from his Own Children*

“So, your kids must love the iPad?” I asked Mr. Jobs, trying to change the subject. The company’s first tablet was just hitting the shelves. “They haven’t used it,” he told me. “We limit how much technology our kids use at home.”

I’m sure I responded with a gasp and dumbfounded silence. I had imagined the Jobs’s household was like a nerd’s paradise: that the walls were giant touch screens, the dining table was made from tiles of iPads and that iPods were handed out to guests like chocolates on a pillow.

Nope, Mr. Jobs told me, not even close.

Since then, I’ve met a number of technology chief executives and venture capitalists who say similar things: they strictly limit their children’s screen time, often banning all gadgets on school nights, and allocating ascetic time limits on weekends.

WATCH: Captivating bank robbery re-enacted 100 years later in Sedro-Woolley

Q13 FOX News

SEDRO-WOOLLEY — It happened 100 years ago, but this weekend one of our region’s most captivating bank robberies came to life.

This re-enactment has taken place every year for the past 20 years.

Hundreds of gunshots rang out during the robbery in 1914. Six people died over the course of that week including a 13-year-old boy who was caught in the crossfire.

A Canadian customs officer was also killed. The other four were robbers on the run who were chased down by law enforcement and angry residents.

The robbers took nearly $11,000 in gold — about half of which was eventually retrieved. But the other half, now valued at nearly $400,000 remains missing.

Organizers decided this year would be the final re-enactment because it was the right time for it to come to an end.

Although many people think that security is a monolith, in reality it’s much more of a mosaic — full of nuances and subtleties. There are undoubtedly various kinds of threats associated with cloud services. From the perspective of the cloud service provider, the most pressing security issue involves protecting its back-end infrastructure from outside attackers. An attacker who can break in through the back door can abscond with a wealth of data.

Businesses using SaaS services, or individual users of iCloud, have other concerns. Account compromise through the back door is worrying, but in…
