Three Headed Dog

A central aspect of being a surfer is getting innundated with weather reports. If ever a group had its eyes on big storms and ’watershed events' it’s the children of waves.  And the buzz now is zonkers over superstorm Nuri in the Northern Pacific. Nuri's impact as a typhoon is starting to lessen, but nonetheless the Explosive Cyclogenesis (aka weather bomb) is charted as the most powerful event of its kind, ever.

Nuri began as a low pressure incident just off Guam a few days before Halloween, now over Alaska, soon to wreak its wreckage over the lower 48.

How to Spot a Phishing Spam

This is a real email I received.  Loaded with red flags that it's not legit, if you are paying attention!

1) Grammatical error in subject line

2) When you expand the From email address (if you can), it's obviously not an Apple email, in fact it's from Italy!

3) If your email program is capable of displaying the additional information, the time zone and coordinates are definitely not California.
