100ms is how long you have for the user to feel like the task was instantaneous. 1.0 second is how long you have for the user’s state of flow to remain uninterrupted (though the delay will still be noticeable). 10 seconds is how long you have before the user loses interest entirely and will want to multitask while the task is completing.

- Off Topic: Target point-of-sale terminals were infected with malware | PCWorld
It sounds like the admin logins to the Target POS may not have been using two-factor authentication, which would have made a brute-force attack easier (even if only accessible over VPN). My first question was, “Why is Target holding credit card numbers?” But it sounds like the malware was scraping RAM on the machines, so the info wouldn’t need to be saved in order to be compromised. Many lessons will be learned from this, and Target is the one that will take almost all of the financial hit (Est. $50 million by Gartner financial fraud analyst Avivah Litan) for this. Consumers will more-than-likely not be affected financially at all.
