President Obama’s Twitter and Facebook accounts targeted in Syrian Electronic Army hack

After tackling The New York Times, Twitter images and several other high-profile social media accounts, the Syrian Electronic Army has now struck the online presence of President Obama. A string of tweets were sent from the @BarrackObama account and messages posted to the President’s Facebook fan page earlier today with links to SEA YouTube content. The source of the breach has been traced to a third-party URL shortener and not a takeover of the accounts themselves, letting the hackers redirect any links sent out by members of Organizing for Action to SEA links. It also appears that the organization was able to gain access to a campaign-related Gmail account as it posted a screenshot of the inbox. Control of ... Read More »

Heisman Watch Week 9: Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel under the radar?

The rushing stats have dipped, but Johnny Manziel is besting his 2012 season in many ways. (Cal Sport Media via AP) Has the country completely forgotten about Johnny Manziel? While Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and Florida State’s Jameis Winston dominate most of the Heisman Trophy conversation, last year’s winner is seemingly flying under the radar in College Station.

As always, Manziel faces a couple of challenges in his path to the trophy. First, only one player (Ohio State running back Archie Griffin from 1974-75) has ever taken home the trophy twice; that notion alone will play into minds of voters, ... Read More »

Tech blog CNET reported as much on Friday, citing lease agreements, Treasure Island locals and “tracking a ... Read More »

The archive currently offers nearly 50 videos as well as 100-plus articles that include interviews, official messages and transcripts. Don’t expect easy access, however. At present, the files are limited to academics — unless you’re writing a thesis on the intricacies of Silicon Valley politics, you’ll have to find Zuck quotes the hard way.
