Hard to believe we're already rolling into the middle of May, which means summer is just around the corner! Apple is going to make it a more secure season for its Apple ID users with two-step verification now going worldwide, while a new study finds that there's an awful lot of us averse to turning off our gadgets when it comes time to fly. Think about that before you step onto your next plane to head out on vacation, folks...

If you haven't already read the harrowing story of what happened to a Wired editor when hackers exploited a few security flaws, then you owe it to yourself.
