Lessons from Microsoft’s 250 million data record exposure

Microsoft has one of the best security teams and capabilities of any organization in the technology industry, yet it accidentally exposed 250 million customer records in December 2019.

Technology used for sexual pleasure was such a hit at CES 2020 that the show’s organizing committee is already planning to play it up again next year, The Post has learned. Organizers were so impressed with the success of their hesitant experience with technologically savvy dildos and vibrators this year that they are considering moving the sex section from a small corner far from the action to a prime location in the Las Vegas Convention Center, according to a source familiar with the thinking. A move to the Convention Center in 2021 would place sex tech smack-dab in the middle of the action along with major CES players like Samsung, Sony and Uber. This year marked the first time the giant trade show gave sex tech companies a dedicated space to exhibit their products and compete for prizes — but only because they were blasted at CES 2019 for prudishly stripping an award from a high-end vibrator while staying mum on “booth babes” and stripper robots. The organizers made it clear sex toys were being given a dedicated space on a trial basis and might not be treated so well the following year. They also relegated the majority of the industry’s booths to a corner of the Sands Expo — far from most of the other companies displaying their wares at the main Convention Center. But the discreet placement of the sex toy booths didn’t stop attendees from visiting. “It’s been really good, better than I had expected,” said Michael Topolovac, co-founder of the luxury vibrator company Crave, which operated a build-your-own-vibrator station out of a retrofitted Airstream on the show’s floor. “You definitely get a sense from people that they think there’s a real market here and this is becoming a mainstream opportunity and could be really big.” A smart vibrator from Lioness, meanwhile, is a finalist in the CES 2020 Last Gadget Standing competition after having its application to participate in CES 2019 rejected.

It uses the data collected to provide feedback to users about how to improve their next session. “Not only are we now surviving CES, I feel like we’re thriving,” Lioness co-founder Anna Lee told The Post. “We’re hoping that CES makes this more than a one-year trial run.” “For us, the biggest thing is just treat us as a normal product like the smartwatch next to us,” Lee said. “Whether it’s taboo or not taboo, it should just be [about] the most technologically advanced products here.” In other, CES sightings: Japanese company Yukai Engineering is back at CES with a pint-sized version of the Qoobo cat tail pillow.
