Amazon welcomes teens with new parent-controlled shopping allowance

Not so long ago, an allowance was something that involved a parent producing dollar bills from a wallet, and the child spending said dollars at the mall. That sounds quaint compared with Amazon Inc.’s new program, launching Wednesday, which lets parents manage—and fund—online-shopping accounts for their teens.

More Things, More Cyberattacks


Not a day passes without mention of the Internet of Things in the media, as it appears to expand exponentially.

The IoT is at risk of being ensnared in a tangled web of legal and security issues.
