The internet traffic to watch World Cup related video is anticipated to generate three times the amount of monthly total internet traffic in Brazil, this year's cup host.

Microsoft Ends Support for Windows XP, Leaves ATMs Vulnerable

TheStreet (Apr. 8, 2014) — In what's being called the death of Windows XP, Microsoft will no longer provide support for the operating system beginning today. Without Microsoft's security updates, computers running on XP will be left vulnerable to viruses and cyber attacks. That includes many of the nation's ATMs and small businesses still running on Windows XP. Microsoft is advising that XP users upgrade their current PC to run on Windows 8.1 if possible. If not, Microsoft encourages users to shop for a new computer. Video provided by TheStreet
