Tech News: ISIS On Twitter & Drones For The Holidays


We live in a world of internet-based technology, like social media, cloud storage, and instantaneous messaging. We also live in the midst of war with extremists, terrorism and very real threats to our safety.

In this hour of Midday, we’re going to talk about the overlap of those two worlds: Sean Gallagher, the Baltimore-based IT editor of Ars Technica, joins us to talk about ISIS propaganda on social media and “hacktivist” twitter accounts that aim to bring them down. Also, deck the halls with holly and drones: How did drones become one of this Holiday season’s most popular requests, and how much are we paying for them?
