Another week has been and (almost!) gone. And here in the nick of time for the weekend is your weekly roundup of articles from across the web with a focus on technology, business news and of course WordPress!
From us all here at Pressidium, have a great weekend!
Beware “secure DNS” scam targeting website owners and bloggers
There are no shortage of scammers out there and no doubt in common with everyone else, you’ll find yourself deleting a range of dodgy email on a daily basis! Some of these emails are clearly fraudulent in nature but, on occasion, scammers can get more creative and come up with an email that is plausible especially if you’re distracted and not looking carefully. A batch of spam emails that is doing the rounds at the moment fits into this category. Pretending to be from WordPress, it’s informing unsuspecting victims that their DNS security features are due to be updated and inviting them to upgrade… if you don’t have time to read the article then just bear in mind that if you get such an email from ‘WordPress’ then it’s a fake (so don’t click the link!).

Superhuman’s email app is overhyped and overpriced
Superhuman is one of the most in-demand startups right now, with the invite-only app considered one of the most exclusive services in the tech industry. That’s impressive, for an email app. It’s even more impressive for an email app that merely accesses your existing Gmail account and costs $30 per month to use. The buzz — both from the company’s marketing and around Silicon Valley — is off the charts. But does it live up to the hype?
