Morning Mix Show Notes 6/15
A puppy has been stolen from the Tri-County Humane Society. How creative are you with your pass code? If you’re not sure how much to spend on dear old Dad this year, just do what everyone else is doing.
The St. Cloud Police Department is reporting that someone broke in to the Tri-County Humane Society and stole a puppy. The criminal complaint states that police were called just before 6pm on Monday to report that a six month old pitbull puppy named Benton was taken from the building. Benton is chocolate in color with white spots on his belly. He’s 43 pounds with floppy ears and a long tail. If you see Benton or know anything, please contact the St. Cloud Police Department.
I truly hope people are more creative than this with their ATM code. A new iPhone security app company (NOT AT&T) just released a new survey that shows we aren’t very creative with our iPhone security pass codes. The most common pass code? 1234. That’s followed by 0000. Third place goes to 2580 which sounds complicated, but it’s just the four numbers down the middle of the keypad. The other ones are 1111, 5555, 5683 (which spells LOVE), 0852 (again, the four numbers on the middle of the keypad), 2222, 1212 and 1998. More than 15% of iPhone owners have one of these pass codes, so if your iPhone is stolen, there’s a one in seven chance that someone could hack it just by trying one of those pass codes. Here’s an idea, when someone sends you a text or an email asking for your pass code, DON’T DO IT!
If you aren’t sure how much to spend on your Father’s Day gift this year, just do what everyone else is doing. According the the National Retail Federation, we will spend more than $11 billion on Dad this year. That averages out to $106.49 per dad. That’s up from $94.32 last year. The most popular gift is an “outing”. Just under half of people say that they plan to take their Dad golfing, to a movie or something similar.
