Patent litigation reform failed to pass Congress this year, but the issue of "patent trolls"—paper companies that do nothing but sue over patents—received unprecedented attention. Activist groups that have been long focused on the issue, like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, don't want the public pressure to let up.
A report shared exclusively with CNNMoney shows that the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, 2015 Cadillac Escalade and 2014 Toyota Prius were the most 'hackable' of 20 car models reviewed by automotive security researchers. The 2014 Dodge Viper and 2014 Audi A8 were the least hackable.
Security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek did their analysis by looking at the technical configurations of different models; they did not actually remotely hack any of the cars in the report.
Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman in March said watching 3D print projects complete was like "watching ice melt," that quality was lax and that her company "solved both of those problems."

Unless this is your first time reading a tech news site, the chances are you’ll have come across the Twitter handle @evleaks. The man behind the account, Evan Blass, has become synonymous with leaks of new smartphones, tablets, and plenty more stuff, giving the world a look at many of the most exciting devices long before their manufacturers officially announce them.
But today, after two years of running the account, Evan revealed that he plans to leak no more. His announcement was short and sweet and, of course, came in the form of a tweet:
Users have taken to social media to report an outage of auction website eBay, but as yet the company has not responded.
The outage began shortly after 10pm CDT, or around 4am UK time, persisting for several hours.
Symptoms varied from problems with storefronts to complete website outage. All were intermittent and seemed to vary between time zones. Some users of the eBay message boards commented that the problem was isolated to certain parts of the website such as eBay Motors, while others found that they could access the website, but could not sign in.
