  • Ashley Madison's members by the numbers

    Now that data analysts and number-crunchers have had about 10 days to pore over hacked data from infidelity website Ashley Madison, fascinating but somewhat suspect findings are coming out. Data analyst Jishai Evers, the CEO of the data-driven journalism website Dadaviz, says it's not only that "users are lying" but also that "Ashley Madison created fake accounts or didn't do much to stop others creating fake accounts" that makes the data problematic. Ashley Madison did not verify email addresses.

  • Air Canada mistaken fares: Winning a lottery or taking advantage?

    Travel blogger Gary Leff can still conjure up the taste of the all-inclusive breakfast served at the Thai resort — not to mention the pinch of salt in the air outside his palatial beach-front suite. "It wasn't even so much that I'm thinking 'I paid $33,' — it was 'I'm here!" Leff, a man who's been called an 'Air Genius' for his mastery of the mysteries of frequent flying, told CBC News. Washington, D.C.-based Leff is part of an online army of deal-hunters who keep an eye out for mistakes like the one Air Canada made this week when the airline briefly sold an unknown number of business-class flight passes for a tenth of their $8,000 value.

  • Days numbered for barcodes as shoppers demand more data

    By Emma Thomasson BERLIN (Reuters) - Growing demand for more information about the products we buy could mean the end of the simple barcode - the blocks of black and white stripes that adorn most objects for sale and are scanned five billion times a day. First used on a pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit chewing gum in 1974 in a store in Ohio, barcodes have revolutionized the retail world, allowing cashiers to ring up products much faster and more accurately, while also streamlining logistics. The basic barcode is just not up to the job.
