The stories we’re covering today.

Marcel Brown: November 16, 1982. Steve Jobs writes a letter to Macintosh Labs asking for the rights to use Macintosh as the brand name of Apple's still-in- development computer. Gordon Gao, president of Macintosh Labs, visited Apple headquarters for a product demonstration. However, Macintosh lawyers advised Gao to reject the request.

Edwin Kwan: DP World Australia suffered a cyber attack which disrupted its landside freight operations. The attack resulted in around 30,000 shipping containers not being moved and crowding of available storage spaces at the ports. 

Ian Garrett: It's no secret that there's a massive shortage in cybersecurity talent, and with any resource that's high in demand with low supply, there are people willing to pay top dollar. For top cybersecurity professionals, companies are now offering substantial packages.

Mark Miller: Hold on to your ass, developer, because you aren't a developer on the OpenAI platform. You're an idea generator for OpenAI's next iteration. This is Mark Miller sitting here shaking my head over what transpired last week at OpenAI's first developer conference.
