​Cybersecurity threats are increasingly from the sea

Entrepreneur Elon Musk has a lot of fans and a lot of foes. However, if you’re going to go up against him, you better be ready for a fight. That’s what The Los Angeles Times learned after they took a swing at Musk over the weekend, saying that his growing empire was fueled by $4.9 billion in government subsidies. In an interview with CNBC on Monday, Musk called the article “misleading and deceptive.” Erin Ade weighs in.

Then, Erin sits down with Ray Rothrock, the CEO of RedSeal. Ray tells us about his experience with “pirate” hackers, whom he first came across while consulting for a major stock exchange and gives us his take on the Navy’s new cybersecurity offense, where he sees the US taking a more aggressive offensive position on cybersecurity as a good thing.

Afterwards, Erin is joined by RT correspondent Lindsay France to discuss how a robotic carnivore might soon have the capability to chase you down the street and jump over hurdles, and how Apple is upping the ante by introducing a subscription service resembling Spotify’s.

After the break, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at Vox Media’s acquisition of Recode, a popular tech website, and what it means for the media industry. Vox made out pretty well in their acquisition by spending $15 million – only one to two times Recode's projected revenue.

And in The Big Deal, Erin and Edward Harrison discuss voice search and how Google risks marginalization as mobile platforms proliferate without Google browser search as the dominate user-operated search vehicle.
