The stories we’re covering today.

Marcel Brown: November 27, 1995. Nearly six months to the day after Bill Gates sent his Internet Tidal Wave memo recognizing the importance of the Internet, and only three months after releasing version 1.0, Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 2.0 for Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.5.

Edwin Kwan: Three critical vulnerabilities have been reported to affect OwnCloud, exposing users to potential data breaches. One of these flaws, with a maximum severity score, exposes administrator passwords and mail server credentials.

Hillary Coover: Despite the widespread belief that private browsing can secure better prices during online shopping, it turns out that Incognito mode doesn't deliver on this promise. All private browsing modes do is erase your search history from the device and prevent the browser from using cookies to track your activity across sites.

Katy Craig: The Pentagon is racing against time and technology in its ambitious Replicator initiative, aiming to deploy thousands of AI-enabled autonomous vehicles by 2026. This strategic push is to keep pace with China's rapid advancements in military technology.
