Hello Vulcan Post Readers! And to our muslim readers – Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha!

Last week was a really eventful week. Instagram Ended Up In China’s Social Media Graveyard during the ongoing Hong Kong protests, and we speak to NUS professor Lai Zit Seng about Shellshock, the latest security risk that’s shocking governments and Mac users into action. We also spoke to Humin’s Vice President for Global Markets, Sriram Krishnan, in our weekly Apps I Live By Column, while our weekly comic artist Arpan shared with us how Jack Ma’s Advice Does You No Good,

While we contemplate Who Will Win The Showdown Between Uber And JPJ, Uber is also moving into Singapore with Uber For Business. We’ve also discovered My Laundry Box, which is pretty much Uber for laundry, and thus Hilarious Fake Thumb That Would Help Your Large Smartphone Problem

Other news includes a A Tech Throwback video starring Steve Jobs, saying goodbye to The Grandad of Social Networking, Orkut, and This Hilarious Conversation between a LINE user and a Hacker!
