    NCS 9/12/11

    in Technology

    Hackers turned to Twitter to wreak havoc during preparations for the 9/11 ceremonies this weekend.  They allegedly hacked into the NBC News account and posted false messages about a new attack on New York’s ground zero.
    It beat out some of the top thinkers in the world at Jeopardy.  Now, IBM’s Watson computer has a pretty neat job to add to its resume.   The company will work with WellPoint to bring Watson technology to the healthcare sector.
    The cyber world isn’t just about hacking into other people’s computers and shutting down networks.  It can actually be used for very good causes like finding a long lost son.  Thanks to Facebook, Kattia Liebers was reunited with her 17 –year- old son after he was taken from her 12 years ago.
