From malware attacks to phishing schemes, we survey the security landscape. It takes a lot more than some anti-virus software to stay safe. We go beyond the sensationalism to assess which threats could pose the biggest problems and dig into the repercussions that ripple through our lives once security has been compromised. KEEP GOING

Top 33 Internet Providers in Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles residential internet coverage

Broadband internet service (internet with a download speed of at least 25 Mbps) is available to 99% of Los Angeles residents. That means that nearly every Angeleno has access to broadband internet. Several internet service providers of different types and sizes are available in LA, but AT&T and Spectrum serve the most areas.

Since Los Angeles is such a sprawling megalopolis, the internet services available at your residence will vary greatly depending on what neighborhood you’re in. Here’s a breakdown of what kind of service you’ll find in different parts of the city:

 

West Los Angeles

Spectrum has you covered for cable internet in Westside areas like Brentwood, Westwood, and Santa Monica—its network spans the entire city. AT&T, meanwhile, offers DSL and fiber options in most of the Westside. However, AT&T isn’t available in coastal communities from Marina del Rey up to Topanga State Park.

What was the Universal Automatic Computer nicknamed?

Computer once meant a person who did computations, but now the term almost universally refers to automated electronic machinery. The first section of this article focuses on modern digital electronic computers and their design, constituent parts, and applications. The second section covers the history of computing. For details on computer architecture, software, and theory, see computer science.

Computing basics

The first computers were used primarily for numerical calculations.

L.A. store owner sees shop looted on livestream computer feed

What Lindsay Pierce saw on her security cameras Saturday night made her ill.

After hours of being glued to the TV news, she’d turned her focus to her computer, where she could monitor her Melrose Avenue business, Wax, through security cameras.

She wanted to keep an eye on her store as protesters continued to move through the Fairfax District. The 33-year-old has owned the store for a year, but the business has been around for more than a decade.

About 11 p.m., she said, three young men darted inside after windows of the glass storefront were shattered. They immediately moved to the business’ internet router and disconnected it, cutting off Pierce’s connection.

“I started sweating. I got sick to my stomach. I was just thinking, ‘Please don’t light it on fire,’” Pierce said Sunday morning as friends and workers cleaned up the vandalized business and cleared the sidewalk of broken
