*For the second time in a month, a United Airlines flight was faced with a scorpion invasion.  The Houston to Ecuador flight was delayed last night after the poisonous insect crawled out of a passenger’s clothing as the plane was preparing to depart. Paramedics were called, the passenger had not been stung.  All passengers were taken off the plane and put on another flight which left more than three hours later. But they were all given a meal voucher for their inconvenience.

There Are Some Trump-Comey Dinner Questions-

Only two people know what was discussed at the Donald Trump- James Comey dinner, but some are sharing what they know.  Seven days after Trump was sworn in as president, the then FBI Director came to dinner. That is where the president was told he was not under investigation. Sources say the dinner was all about loyalty. Trump wanting it and Comey walking the fine line because loyalty is not part of the job.

While the president’s account of the dinner is being questioned, it is agreed upon that Comey described the role of the FBI Director to Trump so he had a better understanding. The former agency head has not responded to stories, yet.

Your HP Computer May Have Been Spying On You-

Several types of HP laptops could very well be recording every keystroke users make.  A Swiss security firm reported Thursday it discovered an audio driver with a keylogger installed on dozens of models, including HP Elitebooks, ProBooks and ZBooks. Anyone who had access to a file on the computer, through malware for instance, could have access to sensitive information including passwords and private messages. HP says the flaw was accidentally included in final versions of the shipped computers and is issuing a fix.
