My level 30 Warlock in Destiny
The attack, which was confirmed on the HTC One Max and Samsung’s Galaxy S5, allows a hacker to stealthily acquire a fingerprint image from an affected device because device makers don’t fully lock down the sensor. Well that’s not good.
They have no choice but to admit that the NSA was so bad at judging who could be trusted with this sensitive data that a possible traitor could take it all to China and Russia. Yet these same people continue to insist that the NSA is deserving of our trust, that Americans should keep permitting it to collect and store massive amounts of sensitive data on innocents, and that adequate safeguards are in place to protect that data.
2015 is becoming the year that Flash gets killed-off once and for all, with Google tweaking Chrome to “intelligently” block auto-playing adverts. In addition, YouTube, the site that was probably the plugin’s biggest proponent, switched to HTML 5 to deliver video at the start of the year. It’s likely that other notable holdouts will be pressured, either by these latest moves, the most recent security controversies or the Occupy Flash movement.
For comparison, 7nm is less than three times the width of that 2.5nm DNA strand. It’s practically unfathomable that something can be made at this size. IBM’s 10nm technology improved the power-performance ratio by 40 percent or 50 percent over today’s 14nm chips, meaning that a computer designer could either lower power consumption for better battery life or speed up software running on a computer. The 7nm design increases the power-performance ratio another 50 percent over the 10nm generation, Khare said.
Contrary to what some reports have said, while a malicious app cannot read your existing keychain entries, it can delete existing keychain entries, and it can create new keychain entries that are readable and writeable by other, legitimate apps. This means a malicious app can effectively trick other apps into saving all new password entries to a keychain it controls, and then can read. Fantastic, informative article on the latest Apple exploits.
… but there will be the ability to add and edit location information. You’ll be able to do it for a single photo, a selection of photos, or an entire Moment. Just open the info panel and “Add a Location”. Bliss. All the changes sound great, especially the Spotlight improvements, but being able to geotag photos in the new Photos app is what I’m really looking forward to.
Traditionally, Apple has used the conference to introduce major upgrades to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch operating system iOS, as well as the Mac operating system OS X, along with new services. Of course, 2015 will be no different. Apple has been preparing a new version of iOS 9 codenamed “Monarch,” a release of OS X 10.11 codenamed “Gala,” a new streaming Apple Music service based on Beats Music, and updates for the Apple Watch.
“It’s happening tomorrow,” Morris said during an interview at Midem in Cannes that primarily focused on his storied career in the music industry. Crossing my fingers that this will be available in Canada.
Based on the Stephen King novel series, The Dark Tower movie and TV adaptations were resurrected by Sony and MRC earlier this year. The two companies will co-finance the film, as well as the TV series. I loved these books, I just hope they can do the story justice.
Two episodes behind on GoT, fixing that tonight!
For anyone to exploit the vulnerability, they need already to have root access to your Mac, and the ability to issue commands as root. And if that’s the case, the remote access itself would be your most pressing concern. In other words, it needs the back window to be unlocked before it can get in and chain itself to the furnace. Probably nothing to worry about for most, but good to be aware about.
The radio push is said to be aimed primarily at users who are not located in the United States, and has been rumored earlier, Apple has plans to debut its streaming music service and iTunes Radio in multiple countries around the world. I’ve used Spotify a bit, this really interests me, hopefully Canada is one of those countries 🇨🇦 source
Apple funds its strategy by selling those great products at substantial margins. Google by selling advertising against, and intelligence obtained from, the data. I love Google’s services, but always keep this at the back of my mind when using them. source
The Wicked + The Divine, which was launched by Image Comics in June 2014, centers on a group of people with superhuman powers known as “The Pantheon”. It won the Best Comic at the 2014 British Comic Awards. In Bleeding Cool’s survey of 2014 Best of Year lists, it appeared in 12, the most of any new creator-owned series. This should be good. source
Supremacy, as the DLC is called, adds four new maps, including two that take you to landmarks in London (the Palace of Westminster) and Moscow (the Kremlin). Another, Skyrise, is a remake of a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map, Highrise. You can see each of these in the trailer, and check out Activision’s descriptions of them below. Looks fun
In newly discovered pre-order listings on NewEgg.com, the site shows a price of $109.99 for Windows 10 Home and $149.99 for Windows 10 Professional. Both listings display a release date of August 31 for the products.
That robotic cheetah built by MIT researchers? They’ve now trained it to see and jump over hurdles as it runs, making it “the first four-legged robot to run and jump over obstacles autonomously.” I want one! source
After several years of quiet development, Apple is readying a major new iOS initiative codenamed “Proactive,” which will leverage Siri, Contacts, Calendar, Passbook, and third-party apps to create a viable competitor to Google Now for Android devices. Like Google Now, Proactive will automatically provide timely information based on the user’s data and device usage patterns, but will respect the user’s privacy preferences, according to sources familiar with Apple’s plans.
Underscoring the importance of the iPhone to Google’s bottom line, consider this: If Apple changed the default search engine in mobile Safari to Bing, Google’s revenue would drop by over 13%.
