If you have an online store there are many trends to pay attention to:
where people shop, reasons for cart abandonment, actions taken to
qualify for free shipping, return preferences, and more. Check out
this Infographic about where the industry is, where it's headed,
and how to navigate the e-commerce landscape.

Today's Story Highlights

Snap Doubles Down on Spectacles Wearable Cam
Snap, the company behind Snapchat, on Thursday released the second
generation of its Spectacles, a wearable video camera that captures
short clips that can be synced to a smartphone. The new version also
takes still photos and is designed to be water-resistant. The new
Spectacles sport the same basic Ray-Ban style design as the first
iteration, but they have been slimmed down and are less bulky.

Gmail Privacy and Security Get Ruggedized
Google has rolled out a number of new features designed to make its G
Suite collaboration and productivity apps more efficient and safer to
use. G Suite currently has more than 4 million paying business
customers. The updates include a new design, enhanced security and AI
components, and better integration of G Suite apps -- including Gmail,
which is getting a brand new look.

New Ubuntu Rethinks Desktop Ecosystem
Canonical on Thursday released Ubuntu Linux 18.04, which utilizes live
patching and a new metric data collection system. Notably missing is the
Unity desktop that had distinguished the distro but was poorly received.
Canonical last year made the switch from Unity 7 to upstream GNOME as
Ubuntu's default desktop environment. Unity is not an option in Ubuntu
18.04 and will not be available in desktop offerings moving forward.

Holy Grail Exploit Puts Nintendo Switch Consoles at Risk
Devices built on Nvidia's Tegra X-1 mobile processor are at risk of
attack from a flaw security researchers have revealed. The exploit chain
discovered by Katherine Temkin and others affects any device running the
chip, including the Nintendo Switch gaming console. Called "Fusée
Gelée," the vulnerability allows anyone to run code on the chip by
overloading a critical buffer when a system boots.
