Litecoin is orders of magnitude more secure than Bitcoin, due to its use of a cryptography technique called scrypt, which makes it very costly to attack due to the large amounts of memory involved.

More like Bitcoin's meth-addicted little brother, with his too-rapid confirms and undeniable scaling issues.

Also wired is doing its best to cement in place the "Irrelevancy Award" I see. They stopped being interesting many years ago, which coincidentally, was when the ratio of actual text to ads declined as well. Now they're a few hops and a skip away from being a technical ad-rag.
