Salespeople at the Apple store can bombard you with technical jargon and gadget buzzwords. That's why they call them geniuses, right? Well, that know-it-all sales dude may have not been an Apple... associate at all. Comedian Tyler Fischer, in collaboration with Prank Riot, took to four Apple stores in the New York City area and posed as an Apple employee. For the prank, Fischer makes ridiculous and fake claims about the products, scans customer's retinas for a credit check and even suggests that people just go buy an Android instead See also: Devil Baby Will Haunt New Yorkers' Dreams It may be hard to believe the unknowing customers went along with it, however, Fischer says, "Not a single customer questioned if I wasn't an employee. They all went with everything I said."

Windows XP support cutoffRetailers will face an increased risk of data breaches after Microsoft ends support for Windows XP, a version of which powers the majority of modern cash registers, security vendor Symantec warned in... a report published Monday. Many point-of-sale (POS) devices run the Windows XP version of Windows Embedded, a scaled-down version of the operating system designed for devices such as set-top boxes and vehicle computers. Microsoft will no longer provide security patches for Windows XP as of April 8, when it ends support for the 13-year-old OS. "This event will certainly place POS operators under increased risk of a successful attack, and POS operators should already have mitigation plans in place to meet this coming deadline," Symantec's 12-page report said.

Getting Girls IntoI normally dislike writing about the issue of women in the technology industry. The media either ends up treating female entrepreneurs with kid gloves or the conversation ends up in some emotionally... charged place where people feel angry or violated. And then we’ve made little progress. Are there systematic biases embedded in the industry? Are women not leaning in hard enough? Do we not have enough role models? All of the above? One thing is clear, however. There are just not enough women in the pipeline starting from as early as K-12 schools. If less than 20 percent of computer science degrees are awarded to women in the first place, how can we expect a proportionate number of women to move forward into entrepreneurship or engineering careers? So that’s why it’s refreshing to see...

It sailed into the tech world's consciousness all of a sudden last October — and now it seems it's about to sail right out again. The secretive Google-owned barge, moored off Treasure Island in the... middle of San Francisco Bay, does not have its paperwork in order, according to the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. After investigating a number of complaints, the agency discovered that Google lacks the necessary permits to keep it in its current location. See also: Google: Mystery Barge Is a Place to Showcase Tech — For Now The four-story barge was the subject of much debate when a CNET reporter first uncovered it last year.

Target fast-tracks new creditTarget says it's accelerating a program that will update its retail stores with technology designed to thwart credit card fraud. In an op-ed in The Hill, Target chief financial officer John Mulligan... says the company is moving up its goal to utilize chip-enabled smart cards, and now plans to have them in stores by early 2015, which is six months earlier than originally planned. Those cards encrypt point of sale data, rendering the credit card number less useful if stolen. Mulligan notes that the smart cards have not taken off in the US, but have resulted in lower card number theft in other countries, notably Canada and the United Kingdom.
