CBU TECH MINUTE Samsung announced a plethora of new products at its Unpacked event in San Francisco this week, so you can imagine what’s being discussed on today’s Vergecast. The much-anticipated Fortnite World Cup is finally happening this summer — and there’s going to be a lot of money up for grabs. Developer Epic detailed the upcoming e-sports event, which will culminate in a final tournament at an undisclosed location in New York from July 26th to the 28th. Photoshopping a meme is easy. But hunting through thrift stores, finding the perfect action figure to Frankenstein with another toy, designing and packaging it into a slightly off but believable product, and sneaking it onto a store shelf takes a little bit more work. Since 2015, Jeff Wysaski has been making fake signs and toys and leaving them out in the real world for people to find. Two-factor authentication is a good way to add an extra layer of security to online accounts. It requires the use of your smartphone, however, which is not only inconvenient, but it can be a problem if your phone is lost or breached. Hardware security keys can offer an extra layer of security to password-protected online accounts and, in turn, your identity. Security keys connect to your system using USB-A, USB-C, or Bluetooth, and they are small enough to be carried on a keychain (with the exception of Yubico’s USB-C nano key, which is so small that it’s safest when kept in your computer’s USB port).

What are Site Submits?

It is true that search engines regularly "spider" the internet and "crawl" your site, to gather content for their search results. It is also true that there are well over and climbing websites in existence today. Check InternetLiveStats.com for more details. With that many websites to crawl, it is impossible for the various search engines to crawl every single website regularly enough to encompass any changes you make to your site, quickly. For that reason, most major search engines have manual submission pages that you can post your URL to whenever you make changes to your site. *This should be used sparingly, as google and others will ban you from submits if you overuse the feature.

We have gathered the major site submits for you below:
