He's the world's richest man, the founder of Amazon and one would have to assume a guy who's incredibly tech savvy. Now he announced last week that he and wife MacKenzie were set to divorce after twenty five years in the wake of appending four month National Enquirer investigation that revealed that he had been dating a former L A TV anchor and the problem here, if the inquirer is to be believed is the base os got really really sloppy with his digital hygiene news at eleven. Stay tuned. I'm Jefferson Graham with USA today. You're listening to talking tech. So maybe the inquirer is right or it's one hundred percent wrong. When it says that base Ohs sent naked pictures and racy texts to Lawrence and Chas the former co anchor of TV's extra who he is now linked with. Well, I don't know something digital was sent if base. Indeed went the Anthony Weiner route and believe. That no one beyond his beloved would ever see the images. Then clearly Amazon has the CEO issue did oh for the tax. So once again kids, it's time for another quick lesson in digital hygiene. First of all don't take naked pictures of yourself, unless you're seeking a career in adult entertainment, they serve. No good purpose. They will be copied and used to embarrass you later. Text messages or not private sure apple says that SMS messages sent from phone, iphone or private and imprinted. But you know, if I'm CEO of a billion dollar tech firm that is transform retail forever. I don't think I'm gonna trust apple on that one. Are you? I would use signal or telegram, which are the private SMS services. But even then I would John everything down in a type of hard to decipher code that only the two of us would understand and would not be embarrassing to read in a family newspaper. Remember kids anything you say or right is part of the. Digital record forever. Think twice about what you jot down. I'm Jefferson Graham with USA. What do you think?
