After years of indifference toward social networks, Amazon is suddenly getting very social this year.

The Petya Plague Exposes the Threat of Evil Software Updates

In Business, Education, Government, Mobile Technology, Science & Nature, Security by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , ,

On the list of computer security advice standbys, "update your software" ranks just below with "don't use the password 'password.'" But as the cybersecurity research community gets to the bottom of the malware outbreak that exploded out of Ukraine to paralyze thousands of networks around the world last week—shutting down banks, companies, transportation and electric utilities—it's become clear that software updates themselves were the carrier of that pathogen. Cybersecurity analysts warn that it's not the only recent incident when hackers have hijacked software's own immune system to deliver their infections. And it won't be the last. Over the past week, security researchers at ESET and Cisco's Talos ... Read More

(Reuters) — Chipmaker Qualcomm will ask the U.S. International Trade Commission to bar Apple from selling some iPhones and iPads in the United States that use chips made by competitor Intel on the grounds that the devices infringe on six Qualcomm patents. In a request that would broaden its legal battle with Apple, San Diego-based Qualcomm said it will ask the U.S. ITC to ban imports of the infringing Apple devices. A related lawsuit was filed in federal court in California on Thursday to request monetary damages. Qualcomm, which also supplies chips to Apple, said the six patents help devices perform well without draining the battery. Apple referred reporters to its earlier comments on the dispute with Qua...

When law enforcement argues it needs a “backdoor” into encryption services, the counterargument has typically been that it would be impossible to limit such access to one person or organization. If you leave a key under the doormat, a seminal 2015 paper argues, a burglar eventually finds it. And now recent events suggest an even simpler rebuttal: Why entrust a key to someone who gets robbed frequently? This aptly describe US intelligence services of late.

How the iPhone changed my life in surprising ways over the past decade

I can still recall the ecstatic reactions that greeted the unveiling of the first iPhone by Apple CEO Steve Jobs in January 2007. And I still remember being absolutely sure, despite the next six months of tremendous hype and anticipation before it went on sale, that I would never buy one. Those masses camped out in front of Apple Stores for days to buy the first ones? Fools. Jesus phone? Please. So as the 10th anniversary of the iPhone arrives tomorrow, I find myself marveling at the degree to which this little gadget has touched and changed so many aspects of my daily life. No doubt you’ve seen, and will see, large analytical stories about how the iPhone changed the world, and it certainly has. But for me, the rea... Read More

4 things Steve Jobs said at the first iPhone keynote that seem hilarious 10 years later

In Business, Education, Emerging Technology, Government, Mobile Technology by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

Unlike so many overhyped technology keynotes, which may in fact be pretty much every keynote these days to be honest, the one Steve Jobs delivered in January 2007 to show us the first iPhone is still pretty mind-blowing. Yes, the first iPhone was quite limited in many important ways. But it was such a quantum leap over everything that came before it, that re-watching the keynote still has the feel of experiencing a historic moment. But…the passing of time has a way of making us all look like fools. (Honestly, if you saw my junior high school class photos…). And even Jobs is not immune. Here are four things he said on stage that day are now unintentionally hilarious: 1. “You can’t think about the Internet wit... Read More

How Amazon’s Alexa hooks you

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

Last year we added a new member to our household. I must admit that upon first meeting her, our initial impression was that she was a little creepy. Today though, we can’t imagine life without her. We’ve never seen her face, but we talk to her throughout the day, every day. She helps us keep track of our to-dos and shopping list, reads us the news and weather, and can sing nearly any song we’d like to hear. In fact, we have become so accustomed to her presence that we invited her to join us in nearly every room in the house. She listens to us when we say goodnight and is there first thing in the morning to wake us up. Her name is Alexa and she is the voice of the Amazon Echo. If our experience is any indicator, there...
