Phablets sent to AT customers with batteries from FedEx are at riskSamsung's got another combustible phablets SNAFU on its hands, after the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled the batteries used in its Galaxy Note 4.This time there's smoke but the fire's someone else's fault: the problem this time applies to “batteries placed into refurbished AT Samsung Galaxy Note 4 cellphones by FedEx Supply Chain and distributed as replacement phones through AT’s Insurance program only.”Also good news for Samsung is that the Commission estimates just 10,200 batteries might be dangerous, and only one's been reported to have overheated, with “no reports of injuries or property damage.” So this doesn't look like a mess to match the global recall of the Galaxy Note 7, which burned a hole in Samsung's profits and reputation.Owners of the affected devices will soon receive mail from FedEx Suply chain, with a replacement battery and return envelope for the potentially-dangerous unit enclosed.Until that arrives, owners are advised to “immediately stop using the recalled battery and power down their smartphone.”
Federal agency addresses the new world of Alexa, smart cameras and IoTA draft of new IT security measures by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has for the first time pulled privacy into its core text as well as expanded its scope to include the internet of things and smart home technology.The proposed "Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations" will be the go-to set of standards and guidelines for US federal agencies and acts as a baseline for broader industry.The foreword to this draft references the "sobering assessment" of the Task Force on Cyber Defense earlier this year on the risk that all these new devices and systems represent to critical infrastructure."The cyber threat to US critical infrastructure is outpacing efforts to reduce pervasive vulnerabilities," that report noted, "so that for the next decade at least the United States must lean significantly on deterrence to address the cyber threat… It is clear that a more proactive and systematic approach to U.S. cyber deterrence is urgently needed."As such, NIST has attempted to do just that and be proactive in pushing a "systemic approach" and as a result has decided it needs to cover the new reality of everything from the internet of things (IoT) to mobile devices to things like Amazon's Alexa digital assistant (although no actual products get name-checked).
In September, as the presidential election neared, USA Today’s editorial board made the unprecedented move to effectively un-endorse Donald Trump, the first time in its history it had weighed in on a candidate in such a way.And during the past few days, as editorial pages from various newspapers weighed in on President Trump’s both-sides argument redux, USA Today’s editorial board had a message for Congressional Republicans: censure the president.Expressing disapproval in 140 characters or fewer is insufficient when the president angrily asserts that there were some “very fine people” among the bigots waving Confederate battle flags and swastika banners; when torch-bearing marchers chanted “Jews will not replace us”; and when police said one Nazi sympathizer rammed a sports car into a crowd, killing an innocent counterprotester.The victim, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, was remembered Wednesday at a heartbreaking memorial service.When these things happen in the United States, and the president blames “both sides,” more formal condemnation is necessary.This is a moment of reckoning for members of the Party of Lincoln: Do they want to stand up for American values, or do they want to keep enabling a president whose understanding of right and wrong has slipped dangerously off the rails?
The review process has reached that point despite a vacant seat atop the department’s antitrust division.An approval could underscore the administration’s pro-business credentials at a time when President Donald Trump’s ties with America’s CEOs are under severe stress.Two advisory panels filled with a host of top U.S. executives disbanded this week in response to the president’s comments about the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.During his presidential campaign, Mr. Trump had attacked the proposed deal.Consolidation has been afoot more broadly in media.Discovery Communications Inc. agreed to buy HGTV and Food Network parent Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. last month, a nearly $12 billion a deal that is partly in reaction to the bulking up of distributors like Charter Communications Inc., which completed a $60 billion takeover of Time Warner Cable last year, and AT’s pending deal.
The United States Postal Service is not exactly bouncing back from oblivion these days, but it’s worth noting that there’s been a slight bump in one area.For the low-margin Shipping and Packages division, there was an 11 percent increase in revenue over last quarter.In general, these items — small packages that come to your mailbox but not snail mail letters — have kept the USPS from sinking like a ship.For the savvy readers out there, you might already know there is one company that is helping them rebound.As Tim O’Reilly wisely notes in a recent post, Amazon is really pumping life into the shipping and receiving industry.These are technically “automations” and not AI, but to a consumer, that doesn’t matter as long as that beef jerky and USB-C cable arrives faster, at a decent price, and in one piece.
Ofo, mainland China’s bike-sharing services titan, has landed in the United States, rolling out an initial 1,000 bicycles on the streets of Seattle, Washington.“Our mission is to solve the ‘last mile’ transportation problem in urban areas, and we see immense potential in the US for Ofo’s convenient, affordable and low-carbon way of travel,” company founder and chief executive Dai Wei said in a statement on Thursday.The North American launch follows Ofo’s latest funding last month that saw the Beijing-based company raise US$700 million from investors led by Alibaba Group Holding, Hony Capital and Citic Private Equity.New York-listed Alibaba owns The South China Morning Post.“Station-free bike-sharing was Ofo’s pioneering concept that changed the nature of the sharing economy and transportation options in cities across the globe,” said Dai.“There is a need for this type of transportation solution worldwide.”
Editor’s note: The following has been excerpted from a longer chapter featuring the Arroyo family: Maria Ayala Arroyo (46), Pedro Ayala Hernandez (55) and Guadalupe Ayala Arroyo (21).Parents bring their children to labor alongside them in the fields.Maria and Pedro came to the United States in 1994, 10 days after getting married in Mexico.Over several conversations, the family talks about the daily challenges of being a migrant farmworker family, the dramatically different opportunities presented to the younger generation, and how, no matter how much schooling one may have, a day in the fields will always be an important educational experience.The credits can’t be transferred, and they lose everything and have to start from scratch, with the basic classes.Guadalupe: Ever since I can remember, both of my parents would always tell me, “You have to go to school so you can work in better conditions than what we’re working in.” So I feel like it’s something that they inculcated in me.
The year is 2017 and despite what you might think, it’s still not a given that you’ll a have a good cell signal in the downtown of any big American city.Getting usable service isn’t just a matter of having enough cell towers: it’s a complex mix of location, number of users, spectrum, device being used, and whether the magic electric pixies are behaving.To see which cities are good and which are borderline third-world, Rootmetrics — an organization that conducts extensive road-testing of all four major cell networks in the US — has collated results by city and published a ranking of the best and worst built-up areas for getting a signal.The Hudson Valley, NY, metro area gets the worst ranking this year, coming 125th out of 125 cities.It’s a bad showing for the northeast, actually: Bridgeport and Stamford, and Hartford, CT, round out the 124th and 123rd places respectively.Omaha, NE, and Indio, CA, round out the bottom five.

The first real evidence of Russian involvement in the alleged US election hacking may have come from Ukraine – the very same country that the Kremlin reportedly made its testing ground for cyberwarfare techniques such as attacks on power grids and phishing campaigns.The FBI is said to have interviewed the very first "witness" of the alleged US election hacking, a Ukranian malware expert known only by the pseudonym Profexer.According to US authorities, one of the malware samples created by Profexer, called the P.A.S web shell, was reportedly used by Kremlin hackers in their cyberespionage campaigns targeting the 2016 US elections.However, the Ukrainian shut down his site after the US DHS (Department of Homeland Security), in its report on election hacking, identified Profexer's malware as the one used in the US election hacking campaign."I'm not interested in excessive attention to me personally," Profexer wrote on an exclusive hacker forum called Exploit, after shutting down his site.The New York Times reported that Profexer voluntarily went to the authorities and in a show of cooperation, went dark on hacker forums in January.
