This is not the first time Experian has had a breach. About a year ago they lost a lot of data to hackers and did not report it for a long time as it was investigated. They did offer free identity protection to those people that lost data at that time.

They also wanted you to provide a lot more data so they could monitor your profile. Do you really want to give them more data for them to give the next hackers?

I believe that was EQUIFAX that had the huge breach last year and why people are now allowed to freeze their credit reports free of charge.

Self-driving cars must be safe by now. Eh?
Well, maybe a minor issue or so. Maybe...

A friend made the comment that we aren't supposed to talk on a cell phone but the auto makers put computers with touch pads in the dash. FWIW, I used to commute to Chattanooga, TN. I marveled as how women could drive and apply makeup at the same time. I did everything to avoid them.

Saw one once with her breakfast plate balanced on the steering wheel and her chest, fork in one hand, coffee cup (no lid) in the other. Steered with her knees.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
