TAX DAY IS COMING
For all the procrastinators out there, Tax Day is just one week away. It falls on April 18 this year instead of April 15, because of the weekend and the DC Emancipation Day holiday on Monday. The IRS said you can file your return electronically or by mail, as long as you send it in by the due date. Tuesday is also the deadline to file for a tax extension. That gives you more time to file your return, but does not delay you having to pay your taxes.
BAD USB PORTS
Those free public charging stations in airports, hotels, or shopping centers may not be as safe as you think. The FBI is warning that "bad actors" have figured out how to use public USB ports to put malware or monitoring software on connected devices. The agency said you should avoid these stations and instead carry your own charger with a cord and plug it into an outlet.
