Disney reveals its Disney+ launch titles in the mother of all Twitter threads
The Next Web  14 Oct 2019 21:37

Disney today revealed the titles its bringing to Disney+, its streaming service. And by “revealed,” we mean one-by-one, on Twitter — a drip-feed of over 300 movies and shows. The reveal started with a rather ominous tweet that began, “It. Is. Time.” You’d be forgiven for thinking Disney had completely snapped and was ready to begin world domination. Instead it started a thread of truly epic proportions, with each title to be added to Disney+, fittingly starting with the progenitor of the whole Disney Princess schtick, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Huawei’s foldable Mate X will reportedly launch this October in China

Foldable phones feel like the future, but the path there isn’t easy – just ask Samsung. That phone’s early woes almost certainly influenced Huawei to delay the release of its own foldable device. The Mate X was originally slated to be released in June, but with all of the issues plaguing the Galaxy Fold – not to mention the US blacklist  – we’ve heard little about when the device would eventually hit the markets. Apparently, that might be quite soon.

Europol: Bitcoin is the still the dark web’s favorite cryptocurrency

Bitcoin is still very much the dark web‘s favorite cryptocurrency, but those looking to cover their tracks are slowly learning to use privacy-focused alternatives. “While we have previously reported a small shift towards more privacy-focused cryptocurrencies such as Monero, Bitcoin still remains the currency of choice for both legitimate and criminal use,” reports Europol with its latest assessment of internet-based organised crime. Europol notes that Bitcoin‘s prevalence in the underground economy is a consequence of its familiarity within the customer base, particularly in dark web markets.

Germany won’t ban Huawei from supplying 5G hardware — despite US pleas

Germany‘s new ‘security catalog’ — which is expected to be released later this week — will not exclude Huawei from supplying equipment for the country’s 5G mobile networks, Reuters reports. The US blacklisted Huawei back in May over its alleged ties with the Chinese government and imposed export sanctions on the company’s products. The US then pressured Germany to do they same by excluding Huawei from an auction on providing the country with gear for its 5G infrastructure — but the new security rule book shows Germany has no intention on caving. “Germany’s approach did not and does not foresee… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Huawei...

Huawei could resume business with US suppliers but will it get its Android license back
Digit  14 Oct 2019 12:15

Huawei, which has been banned from sourcing supplies from US firms, could resume business with its US counterparts, according to a report by New York Times. Huawei was placed under a blacklist by the US Commerce Department on the grounds of national security. Because of the ban, Huawei is prohibited from obtaining a license to add Google Play Services to its devices along with Google Core Apps like Search, Maps, Gmail and the likes which reduces the prospects of its products in the international market.As a result, Huawei had to launch its flagship Mate 30 Series using the open source version of Android and Huawei’s own appstore called App Gallery.Based on the new report, a meeting was held last week where U.S. President Donald Trump ordered officials to give a green light to a select few US companies to resume supplies to Huawei. The operative keyword is that the goods supplied have to be non-sensitive to national security.Based on the report, a slew of other publications started ...

iPhone SE 2 to launch in Q1 2020: Report
Digit  14 Oct 2019 12:04

If information circulating the internet is to be believed, then Apple could launch the iPhone SE 2 in Q1 2020. The smartphone is expected to have a starting price of $399 (Rs 28,350 approx. directly converted) and will come in two storage variants - 64GB and 128GB. In a research note obtained by MacRumors, Ming-Chi Kuo highlights some of the specifications of the smartphone.

Ask a PC expert: Is an Nvidia G-Sync monitor worth it vs. AMD FreeSync?
PC World  14 Oct 2019 10:30

Nvidia’s G-Sync monitors cost a steep premium over AMD’s rival FreeSync Displays. But are they worth it, especially now that Nvidia lets you use FreeSync panels with GeForce graphics cards? It’s a complicated issue, but PCWorld graphics guru Brad Chacos unravels what you need to know in the video below.Both G-Sync and FreeSync panels revolve around the same core variable refresh rate technology, also known as adaptive sync. Standard monitors refresh their image at a constant speed, such as 60Hz or 144Hz. Adaptive sync monitors synchronize your monitor's refresh rate to your graphics card’s output—hence their name. Doing so prevents ugly screen tearing and stuttering, giving you a delicious, buttery-smooth gaming experience.To read this article in full, please click here...

MySQL was the preferred database mostly because it was free open source and had good read performance, which fit well with “Web 2.0” apps that dynamically generated sites from the database.To read this article in full, please click here(Insider Story)...

IDG Contributor Network: How to survey your developers about their tools
Info World  14 Oct 2019 10:00

In any engineering organization, it’s important to balance investments in product development with those in tooling and other productivity enablers. It can be easy to slip into a mindset of focusing solely on new products and features, but the reality is that developer productivity, efficiency, and happiness also impact a business’s bottom line. But if you’re going to devote resources to improving tooling and other support systems, you want to make sure that your investment will have a positive net effect.We frequently measure customers’ satisfaction with their product experience—why should our approach to tooling and developer productivity be any different? With that in mind, we overhauled our system at LinkedIn for surveying engineers about their satisfaction with the tools and resources at their disposal. As a result, we’ve seen improvements in our understanding of the specific pain points of different teams, enabling us to more effectively adapt certain tools or proces...

ING says bank-owned digital currencies are coming — and we’re all doomed
The Next Web  14 Oct 2019 09:54

Whether you like it or not, central bank digital currencies are coming. We just don’t know when exactly. According to Dutch bank ING’s financial and banking experts, a “fully-fledged central bank digital currency is coming.” In an article published today on THINK, the bank’s economic and financial analysis platform, ING’s chief economist Mark Cliffe and its lead economist for digital finance Teunis Brosens said we “might well see a central bank digital currency emerge within the next five years.” Not everyone is so sure, though.

Bel is a new LISP-style programming language from Y Combinator founder Paul Graham

Paul Graham is perhaps best known for two things: co-founding Y Combinator, and his tireless advocacy of LISP programming languages.  And on Saturday, the legendary investor and essayist released his own LISP dialect, called Bel. What I've been working on for the last several years: Bel. https://t.co/Tk9KFlw8Gl — Paul Graham (@paulg) October 12, 2019 Bel is interesting, not least because it highlights the enduring and improbable longevity of one of the earliest high-level programming languages.

Apple under scrutiny for sending Safari browsing data to China’s Tencent
The Next Web  14 Oct 2019 07:18

Apple is attracting scrutiny for its practice of checking if the websites you’re visiting visiting are fraudulent and malware-infested after Chinese internet conglomerate Tencent was found listed as a Safe Browsing provider. The Safari feature — dubbed “Fraudulent Website Warning” in iOS and macOS — is meant to enhance online security by cross-referencing URLs against a blacklist service provided by safe browsing providers such as Google and Tencent. “This feature appears to be ‘on’ by default in iOS Safari, meaning that millions of users could potentially be affected,” said John Hopkins cryptography professor Matthew Green.

Chinese communist party’s app is reportedly spying on its 100M users
The Next Web  14 Oct 2019 06:12

A report from the German cybersecurity firm Cure53 suggests the Chinese communist party’s app, Study the Great Nation,  has ‘superuser’ access to over 100 million Android devices. It notes the app has a backdoor through which the government can access messages, photos, contacts, and internet browsing history of these handsets. When a researcher at the agency inspected the app, they found coders have ‘deliberately used’ weak encryption in functions like mail and biometric authentication. Plus, it stores files on the phone’s storage in a way other apps can read data from them. This is dangerous if the government has other apps… This story continues at The Next Web...

Elon Musk, founder of private space-faring company SpaceX, recently unveiled his new Starship craft. Amazingly, it is designed to carry up to 100 crew members on interplanetary journeys throughout the solar system, starting with Mars in 2024. The announcement is exciting, invoking deep emotions of hope and adventure. But I can’t help having a number of moral reservations about it. Musk has declared a fascinatingly short time line to achieve orbit with this rocket. He wants to build four or five versions of the vehicle in the next six months.

Riot Games warns League of Legends broadcasters against discussing sensitive topics on air
Digit  13 Oct 2019 12:40

The protests in Hong Kong are not just upsetting the political status quo, but also sending some very concerning ripples across the world of Technology. Riot Games, the company behind League of Legends, is based out of the U.S., however, as of 2015, they are wholly owned by Tencent Games. The LoL developer has now told League of Legend broadcasters to refrain from speaking about “sensitive” topics.The move comes hot on the heels of Blizzard banning a Hearthstone player after he expressed support for the Hong Kong protests. The ban came after Ng “Blitzchung” Wai Chung during a post tournament interview expressed his support for the Hong Kong protests by yelling “Liberate Hong Kong. Revolution of our age!” Ng “Blitzchung” Wai Chung is a native of Hong Kong.In fear of souring its Chinese business interests, Blizzard immediately banned Chung for a year and is withholding any earnings he would have made from the tournament. To justify the move, Blizzard cited a competition r...

Apple working on having its own 5G modem in iPhone by 2022
Digit  13 Oct 2019 12:07

Rumours have long suggested that Apple would release its first 5G-ready iPhone in 2020, with potentially all three models sporting the 5G chip. However, the 5G radio in these iPhones will be provided by Qualcomm. Now a new report by The Fast Company claims that Apple is working on developing a 5G modem in-house, with the goal of shipping it in devices by 2022, a rather ambitious goal for multiple reasons.Right now, the iPhone (all models) include a System on Chip designed by Apple while the modem continues to be a separate chip on the logicboard. Ideally, having the modem be a part of the SoC would be the best case scenario when it comes to power-efficiency. Initially, Apple had plans on working with Intel to incorporate the modem right into the A-series processors, but then, things changed drastically in April 2019. Back in 2017, Apple and Qualcomm went head-to-head in legal battles across the world due to conflict over the way Qualcomm was charging royalties. However, in an interest...

Microsoft shuttering its ebook store is hardly the end of the world. The Kindle customer base is, by all accounts, predominant in this space. Not all product launches succeed — some fail. That’s business. And, to be fair in disclosing the “other side,” Microsoft is offering coupons to make up some of the lost value their ebook customers are experiencing. But it gives one pause — and should give one pause.

The best way to get driverless cars on the road is to make them less conservative
The Next Web  12 Oct 2019 17:00

Hakan Samuelsson, the CEO of Volvo recently said it was “irresponsible” to put autonomous vehicles (AVs) on the road if they were not sufficiently safe, because that would erode trust among the public and regulators. He’s right, of course; to a point. But focusing on safety alone could seriously hamper the progress of AVs, and could actually lead to less safe conditions for motorists overall, counterintuitive as that sounds. By designing AVs to follow only the safest of protocols we risk gridlock and increased numbers of frustrated human drivers making dangerous driving decisions out of frustration, or ‘bullying’ AVs they… This story continues at The Next Web...

This exoplanet challenges our understanding of planet formation
The Next Web  12 Oct 2019 11:00

The discovery of yet another exoplanet is no longer news. More than 4,000 planets around other stars have now been found since the detection of the first one in 1995. As astronomers long suspected, or at least hoped, it seems that planets are ubiquitous in stellar systems and there are probably more planets than stars in our galaxy. But a new discovery of a large planet orbiting the small star GJ3512 is worth noting. The paper, published in Science, challenges our understanding of how planets form – and further blurs the line between small, cool stars known as brown dwarfs… This story continues at The Next Web...

This might kneecap some bold claims Google‘s recently made about what the service is capable of. The survey is from BroadbandNow, and covers responses from 943 participants. Their info suggests that almost six million gamers (out of around 34 million estimated to play at least 22 hours a week) would quickly blast through their data caps if they were to switch to Google Stadia as their primary device.

The Next Web  11 Oct 2019 20:33

At this point, we’d given up on Google having any major secrets about the Pixel 4 left to reveal, but surely the company would be able to keep its other hardware under wraps until next week? …What’s that, you say? Google’s new Chromebook just leaked? An entire hands-on article and video from a reputable source like 9to5Google? Sighs. This isn’t the first we’ve heard about the Pixelbook Go, which 9to5Google extensively covered last month. But this is the first time we’ve gotten such a thorough look at the device.

Apple to reimplement Swift compiler driver in Swift
Info World  11 Oct 2019 20:25

With the new swift-driver project, Apple is developing a new implementation of the Swift compiler driver. Written in Swift, the new Swift compiler driver is intended to replace the existing driver, which is written in C++, with a more extensible and maintainable code base.The new Swift compiler driver is still a work in progress, with Apple pursuing a goal to provide a drop-in replacement for the existing driver. This means there is a fixed initial feature set to implement prior to deprecating and removing the existing driver. The development plan covers the feature set and describes tasks to improve the Swift driver including code clean-ups, improving testing, adding missing features, and integrating with existing systems.To read this article in full, please click here...

No, Intel didn't confirm its discrete Xe GPUs will support ray tracing
PC World  11 Oct 2019 20:24

And...it’s gone. Recent reports that Intel had confirmed ray tracing support in its Xe graphics cards are wrong, a company spokesman said Friday.News broke earlier this week that a briefing given to analysts in Tokyo had confirmed hardware ray tracing support in Intel’s upcoming Xe consumer graphics cards. It turns out the presenter never confirmed ray tracing support, and in fact, never even mentioned ray tracing, an Intel spokesman said.So how did multiple tech news sites come to believe it had been confirmed? Blame machine translation of a news story covering the Intel presentation. Intel officials said they believe computer-based translations of a Japanese language story on MyNavi.jp somehow conflated what was essentially a rehashed graphics presentation with the site’s speculation on upcoming graphics features in Tekken 7 into “ray tracing in Xe confirmed.” Intel says the presentation never mentioned ray tracing, nor did it “refer to the Xe graphics architecture foun...

Review: the Tectonic9 is the perfect grinder for habitual cannabis users
The Next Web  11 Oct 2019 19:49

The Tectonic9 is a manually-operated herb grinder with a vibrating dispenser. Yeah, it didn’t make a lot of sense to me at first either. If I’ve got to do the grinding by hand, what’s the point of the vibration? In a word, the answer is: fluffy. As in, this grinder made my cannabis fluffy and I’m sent. When I recently reviewed the Atomic9 dry-herb vaporizer from Cloudious9, I also had the opportunity to check out the Tectonic9 herb grinder.

Why migrating to another planet is a stupid and implausible idea
The Next Web  11 Oct 2019 18:28

Swiss astrophysicist Michel Mayor, whose work detecting exoplanets recently earned him a share in the Nobel prize for physics, says humans will never migrate beyond our own solar system. Maybe it’s time we started taking this whole “climate change” thing seriously. The first exoplanet with the potential to host life as we know it, meaning it was orbiting a star similar to the one we call ‘the sun,’ was discovered by Mayor and fellow Nobel winner Didier Queloz in 1995. In the time since, researchers have confirmed the existence of more than 4,000 exoplanets. But we won’t be making the… This story continues at The Next Web...

Go big or go fast: Corsair shatters the 5GHz DDR4 barrier, G.Skill unveils a monster 256GB RAM kit
PC World  11 Oct 2019 18:14

It’s a killer time for PC memory enthusiasts. A pair of recent RAM releases should bring a smile to your face regardless of whether you’re into ultra-fast memory speeds or kits with massive capacity.On Thursday, Corsair became the first memory vendor to commercially ship DDR4 RAM that can break the 5GHz barrier on Ryzen 3000-based systems. The company’s 16GB Vengeance LPX kit, a pair of 8GB modules, are based on Micron dies and can hit 5GHz with a CAS Latency timing of 18 at 1.5 volts. If you’re shrugging because you’ve already seen people hit memory clock speeds over 5.7GHz, remember that most of memory overclocking records are performed with exotic cooling. Corsair’s announcement of a commercial product can be bought and essentially guaranteed to hit such sky-high clock and memory timings is another matter. That blistering performance doesn’t come cheap, though, as Corsair charges $1,225 for its 5GHz Vengeance LPX memory kitRemove non-product link. To read this artic...

Best mesh Wi-Fi routers: Reviews and buying advice
PC World  11 Oct 2019 16:47

A great wireless router is an essential element of tech life, whether you’re building out a smart home or you just want the best experience streaming music and video at home. If you’re suffering with low wireless throughput or dead spots in any area of your home, we heartily recommend deploying a mesh network consisting of a Wi-Fi router with one or more satellite nodes that you sprinkle around your home, because it will blanket your home with coverage. You can deploy a mesh Wi-Fi router without any satellites, but you’d be losing out on all the coverage benefits that mesh technology provides. We pick the best mesh systems here, because even those of us fortunate enough to have ethernet drops everywhere have devices—smartphones and tablets, for instance—that depend on Wi-Fi to connect to the home network and the internet.To read this article in full, please click here...

Should ‘digital dopers’ get banned from sports in the real world too?

Cloud architecture that avoids risk and complexity
Info World  11 Oct 2019 10:00

One of the truisms about cloud architecture is that there are typically 100x100 architecture solution patterns. They all work, but only one is the right solution. If your head is swimming, let me explain.Indeed, many technology stacks and approaches will solve the same problems using cloud-based technologies. They all work, but the majority will bring more risk, cost, and complexity than you should endure.  [ The Enterprise Architecture Awards: Learn from these five winners what it takes for EA to make a real business difference. ! Keep up with hot topics in transformative IT with the InfoWorld Daily newsletter. ]In my years of reviewing architectures and plans for the Global 2000, I’m often engaged in a struggle between “it works, doesn’t it?” and “what’s optimal?” with the lowest risk, cost, and complexity.

Samsung SmartThings Wifi review: A sensible choice for smart homes, but far from the best router
PC World  11 Oct 2019 10:00

Mesh tech is as beneficial to smart home devices as it is to home networking, so it makes sense to deploy a single product that can handle both missions—provided that single device offers best-in-class performance in both areas. While the second-generation Samsung SmartThings Wifi mesh router is a great smart home hub, it’s far from being a state-of-the-art router. But if you don’t need a top-shelf router, and not everyone does, the SmartThings Wifi’s price tag and its performance as a smart home hub renders it a good enough value.SmartThings Wifi as a smart home hubIn some respects, the Samsung SmartThings Wifi three-pack reviewed here is an even better smart home hub than our top pick in that category—the third-generation Samsung SmartThings Hub—simply because it has three nodes to the Hub's one. That said, we’re sticking with our recommendation of the SmartThings Hub as the best smart home system for most people because the SmartThings Wifi router simply isn’t the b...

Well, at least the Mac Pro case.We kick things off by discussing Intel’s recent processor price reductions. They’re significant in the case of the massively multi-core upcoming “Cascade-X” Core-X chips, and milder (but still welcome) in Intel’s graphics-less F-series Core CPUs. After that, Brad reveals what we know (and don’t know) about AMD’s just-announced Radeon RX 5500 series graphics cards, which are coming to prebuilt systems before DIY enthusiasts can pick them up.To read this article in full, please click here...

Getting around a city with pets can be tricky, especially a large dog or two. Here in NYC, most people don’t own cars, especially in the inner boroughs. That often means calling a cab when you need to go to the vet or on a trip across town. Problem is, many drivers don’t want animals in their cars, whether for cleanliness or allergies.

Justdial patches security flaw that exposed sensitive data of over 156 million accounts
Digit  10 Oct 2019 17:50

In the world of constant data leaks and breaches, you can now add one more company to the list. A critical security flaw was found on Justdial, which could enable attackers to access sensitive account information of 156.1 million users on the platform. Justdial has now patched the flaw but we suggest you change your account password right away, in case you use the platform. The issue reportedly stemmed from Justdial’s Register API that would enable an attacker to get access into any Justdial account by using a phone number in the username parameter. The flaw was reported by the security researcher Ehraz Ahmed, via MoneyControl.As per the report, the Register API vulnerability could enable hackers to access anyone’s Justdial account. This would be done by replacing the phone number under the username parameter so that the system returns an access token, system ID (SID) and user ID (UID). The SID would then be used to access the account and another accounts linked to it while the UID...

PlayStation 5 to be launched holiday season 2020, new controller updates and more
Digit  10 Oct 2019 14:56

It’s been almost six years since the launch of the PlayStation 4. Judging by the life cycle of most modern consoles, a 7-year average begins to emerge. So we can safely assume that the Sony PlayStation 5 could be coming out next year, right? Well, Sony has just announced the launch of the PlayStation 5 and it’s just as predicted. The console will ship ‘Holidays 2020’. So you better start saving up as soon as possible. Sony also announced a bunch of updates to the DualShock controllers as well. The company will be replacing current rumble tech with a more advanced version. The controller will ship with haptic feedback technology. What this means is that there will be a wider range of feedback when it comes to the rumble feature. Could it function like the Nintendo Switch’s Joy Con’s, with their HD rumble feature? We won’t really know the answer until we have the system in our hands. Anohter change to the controllers will the addition of pressure sensitive triggers or ‘...

Scientists are looking for dark matter to understand the universe’s ‘hidden web’
The Next Web  10 Oct 2019 13:59

After counting all the normal, luminous matter in the obvious places of the universe – galaxies, clusters of galaxies and the intergalactic medium – about half of it is still missing. So not only is 85 percent of the matter in the universe made up of an unknown, invisible substance dubbed “dark matter,” we can’t even find all the small amount of normal matter that should be there. This is known as the “missing baryons” problem. Baryons are particles that emit or absorb light, like protons, neutrons or electrons, which make up the matter we see around us.

BrandPost: Take Advantage of Enterprise-Grade Container Infrastructure with Hedvig and D2iQ
Info World  10 Oct 2019 13:52

Great news: We're partnering with D2iQ to offer Hedvig users the ability to run stateful container applications. Hedvig users can now use D2iQ's cloud-native ecosystem to deliver an enterprise-grade, Day 2 experience. Enterprise storage has evolved from tape and DAS to NAS/SAN and hyper-converged solutions. But for the past decade, all storage innovation has been developed with virtualization in mind. Stateful containers pose a new set of challenges to the storage layer with the demand for dynamic and frequent volume provisioning, container affinity for volumes, and location-agnostic storage availability. The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform solves that problem by bringing its enterprise-tested and production-hardened software-defined storage to the container world. It provides container-native and container-aware storage, along with enterprise storage features, such as deduplication, compression, encryption, replication, and more. To read this article in full, please click here...

Reliance Jio will charge 6 paise per minute to call rival telco users: All you need to know
Digit  10 Oct 2019 13:49

Reliance Jio will now levy a charge of six paise per minute everytime a call is placed to someone on a rival network operator. While this goes against the “Jio Promise” of providing free voice calls to users across India, the company will off-set it with free data. The new announcement comes after TRAI is reconsidering extending the deadline for terminating Interconnection Usage Charges (IUC), that are levied when a user calls someone on another network (off-net calls). IUC charges were previously reduced from 14 paise to 6 paise per minute and the charges are slated to be zero from January 1, 2020. Jio's explainationJio sent out a press release explaining why it needs to suddenly charge its customers for voice calls. As per the release, Jio was paying IUC charges from its own pockets to other telcos like Airtel and Vodafone-Idea to offer free voice calling to its consumers. In the last three years, the telco has apparently paid around Rs 13,500 crores as NET IUC charges to other ...

WD's My Passport 5TB USB hard drive review: Updated style and capacity
PC World  10 Oct 2019 10:30

WD’s My Passport external 2.5-inch USB 3.0 hard drive is now available in up to 5TB in capacity, which means you can stuff even more data in your pocket than with the last iteration. At $150 retail, you pay $30 more than the previous top-capacity 4TB unit, but that’s the same price as its Seagate Expansion rival, as well as one-fifth the price per gigabyte of SSDs. This review is part of our roundup of best external drives. Go there for details on competing products and how we tested them.Design and specsThe 5TB My Passport measures 4.22 x 2.95 x 0.75 inches and weighs 0.46 pounds. It’s also available in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities, with the 1TB and 2TB versions being thinner at 0.44 inches and weighing only 0.27 pounds. All capacities carry a three-year warranty. (Note that if this drive is like other WD My Passports, you’ll likely find a decent discount if you shop around.)To read this article in full, please click here...

What are microservices? Your next software architecture
Info World  10 Oct 2019 10:00

Nearly every computer system performs multiple tasks using shared resources, and one of the questions of computer programming is how closely the bits of code that perform those tasks should be tied to one another. An increasingly popular answer is the concept of a microservice—a small, discrete chunk of functionality that interacts with other microservices to create a larger system.Although the basic idea of having such discrete components isn’t new, the way microservices are implemented makes them a natural foundation for both modern cloud-based applications. Microservices also dovetail with the devops philosophy, which encourages rapidly and continuously rolled out new functionality.To read this article in full, please click here...

Review: Dell's XPS 15 7590 reaches for 8 cores of CPU power
PC World  10 Oct 2019 10:00

Dell’s XPS 15 (version 7590) is a test of just how much hardware you can jam into a 4.2-pound laptop. This latest iteration includes up to an 8-core “overclockable” Core i9-9980HK and a discrete GeForce GTX 1650 card. That is a lot of hot hardware in a body arguably not built to handle it. Hardware you'd expect to see in a gaming laptop, not a high-end, thin-and-light workhorse. We know why Dell likely did it: to compete with another high-end 15-inch laptop that's stuffed to the gills, the MacBook Pro 15. That's not a gaming machine either—both are systems designed for programmers, engineers, content creators, and other computing-intensive professionals. But the sad truth is most consumers will compare the top CPUs in both laptops, and buy the one with the “faster” CPU. So yes, if Apple is going to cross the line with a Core i9, Dell is apparently ready to cross it too, thermal limitations be damned. Our review will see if the XPS 15's stretch was worth the sacrifice. T...

The US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued updated guidance for calculating taxes owed on cryptocurrency holdings yesterday.

In short, the IRS has firmed its stance that cryptocurrency should be taxed under the same rules as any other property or capital gains. There’s nothing new here in that respect. As cryptocurrency policy think tank Coin Center states, there are some good things to come of this update, but there are some bad, too.

California bans law enforcement from using facial recognition software for the next 3 years

The Next Web  09 Oct 2019 23:28

Ready to be sickened? A gunman in Germany today opened fire on a crowd of worshippers in a synagogue — and worse, he livestreamed the whole thing on Twitch. The attack took place at a synagogue and kebab shop in Halle. It seems fairly obvious why the attack took place today: it’s Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism. The shooter apparently streamed the whole thing using a camera mounted to his head. According to official reports, at least two people were killed, but the shooter was unsuccessful in breaking into the synagogue. The shooter went on… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Twitch...

Report: Apple could launch an iPhone-powered AR headset next year
The Next Web  09 Oct 2019 21:53

Just about everyone in the tech industry has taken a crack at VR or AR wearables except for Apple. The company has been content building out AR features for its iPhones, but not actually delivering a headset or other wearable to enhance the experience. That may change next year, according to reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac). Kuo expects Apple to team up with third parties to create the first batch of AR headsets. This comes as something of a surprise, considering Apple isn’t known for letting accessory-makers get first dibs on new hardware.

Want to run more efficiently? Tie your feet together, say scientists
The Next Web  09 Oct 2019 20:57

It used to be that tying someone’s shoes together was a nasty prank, but now it’s a performance-enhancing feat of bio-mechanical engineering. A team of researchers and engineers at Stanford University have developed a radical new method to increase the running efficiency of humans: they put a rubber band between a pair of shoes. This might not sound like a feat of modern technology, but the science behind it is actually quite interesting. According to the team’s research paper, we’re poorly engineered for the task of running: Human running is inefficient. For every 10 calories burned, less than 1 is needed… This story continues at The Next Web...
