Lucky China, always getting the good stuff.First pandas, and now the Huawei Honor Magic.This curvy beauty is packed with interesting tech, from a dual-camera system on the back to an eye-tracking sensor from Tobii on the front — and a whole lot of custom software in between.The display underneath that lovely smooth glass is a 5-inch AMOLED one with a 2560 1440 resolution, giving it an exceedingly high 577 PPI.Dual 12-megapixel cameras on the back, one color and one monochrome, should produce excellent imagery.The frame is itself a sensor, the home button is also a fingerprint reader, and on the front is an eye-tracking unit from Tobii, which generally builds them into laptops and monitors — this is the first smartphone they ve put one in.

When CBS All Access launched more than two years ago, the $5.99-a-month service only live-streamed in certain markets and offered relatively little programming compared with the likes of Netflix.CBS has beefed up the online service dramatically since then, making live station feeds available across nearly the whole country, offering full current seasons of shows like NCIS, greenlighting a new edition of Star Trek for the platform, and inking a deal this month to stream its Sunday and Thursday NFL games.Winning over young consumers on digital platforms will be key to CBS s future as a stand-alone broadcaster and will be in the spotlight for investors, particularly after plans unraveled this week to merge CBS Corp. with sister company Viacom Inc.While other media companies have prioritized gaining carriage on every new digital distributor, CBS hasn t been afraid to stay on the sidelines.It wasn t on AT s DirecTV Now at launch in November, hasn t signed a deal with Dish Network Corp. s Sling TV in nearly two years and hasn t struck a pact with Hulu, the service owned by many of its rivals that is set to launch a cable-style streaming offering early next year.1 broadcast network did sign a deal with Alphabet Inc. s YouTube and remains in talks with DirecTV Now and Hulu.

Last Thursday, US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy made headlines by boldly proclaiming that teen e-cigarette use is a major public health concern.The assertion came alongside a government report with some eye-popping figures, including that e-cigarette use among high school students increased by more than 900 percent between 2011 and 2015.The apparent blaze in popularity led Murthy and other public health experts to worry that vaping could blow up rates of teen smoking and life-long nicotine addictions.In 2016, e-cigarette use among teens dipped for the first time since the devices gained popularity in the last decade or so, according to public health researchers at the University of Michigan.In a statement, the lead researcher of the Michigan study, Lloyd Johnston, noted that there are still many kids at risk of substance abuse but that drug use trends are going in the right direction."In terms of e-cigarettes, "it s still too early to know if this year s dip shows a peak or pause, said Richard Miech, another Michigan researcher.

Obi the parrotlet wearing protective goggles.As the bird flaps its way through the water particles, its wings generate disruptive waves, tracing patterns that help scientists understand how animals fly.In a new study, a team of scientists measured and analyzed the particle trails that were produced by the goggle-wearing parrot's test flights, and showed that previous computer models of wing movement aren't as accurate as they once thought.Computer models can interpret these air disturbances to calculate the forces that are required to keep a flyer aloft and propel it forward.A team of scientists had recently developed a new system that tracked the airflow generated by flight at an unprecedented level of detail.For the study, the researchers enlisted the help of a Pacific parrotlet — a type of small parrot — named Obi.

The whole Note 7 overheating saga has been going on for some time, but it isn't quite over yet.Owners of the ill-fated handset should, by now, have taken notice of Samsung's globall recall following numerous reports of the phablet overheating and, in some instances, exploding.But if you live in the US and have thus far ignored the recall and clung to your Note 7, Samsung appears to be gearing up to force you to comply.According to a report from The Verge, Samsung could be about to release an update for the Note 7 that will prevent it charging, thereby essentially disabling all the remaining handsets that are yet to be returned.An image obtained by the site seems to show an alert which went out to at least one Note 7 owner on US Cellular, informing them of the impending update.Samsung issued a global recall following reports of Note 7s exploding

Digital transformation is changing everything about information technology, and even the business itself.As IT morphs from a back-office function, to a knowledge-worker enabler, to an all-encompassing, integrated part of every employee and most things in a company, the traditional IT staff s role is changing rapidly.They are helping their companies build a digital strategy—including internal IT capabilities, such as next-generation collaborative mobile environments; digital marketing strategies, such as the company s online presence; and digital business strategies, or the integration of technology into products the company sells.That s not an easy transition, particularly as most companies are having trouble finding people with the skillsets they need to execute on the new business-technology functions.As a result, they must rely on their partners and trusted advisors to offload select IT functions, with flexible rollout schedules.Instead of running every IT capability, IT staff members will manage their partners, who in turn, will handle a variety of capabilities—from mobile device programming and management, to LAN/WAN management, to security capabilities, to application development.

The Fifth Element is a problem - the input argument that didn't get checked is an RCE holeThe developers of open source webmail package Roundcube want sysadmins to push in a patch, because a bug in versions prior to 1.2.3 let an attacker crash it remotely – by sending what looks like valid e-mail data.The authors overlooked sanitising the fifth argument the from parameter in mail – and that meant someone only needed to compose an e-mail with malicious info in that argument to attack Roundcube.It works because of how the program flows in a default installation.User input from the Roundcube UI is passed to PHP's mail function, and mail calls sendmail.Because the user input wasn't sanitised until the bug-fix, the fifth argument when calling mail could be used to execute sendmail with the -X option to log all mail traffic – and that, according to RIPS Technologies in this blog post, could be abused to spawn a malicious PHP file in the target server's Webroot directory.

I Sverige en genomsnittlig person cirka 74 kilo mat per år, enlig siffror från Naturvårdsverket Att minska matsvinnet är något som flera startupbolag tittar på – exempelvis finska Resq Club som vill ta vara på överskottsmaten slängs restauranger och fik dagligen.Malmöbaserade bolaget Innoscentia har valt ett annat tillvägagångssätt för att angripa problemet.Deras innovation bygger på en kombination av ett sensoriskt bläck som binder bakteriemetaboliter, en restprodukt från bakteriernas metabolism, och tryckt elektronik som kan integreras exempelvis i en digital etikett som kan kommunicera den elektroniska reaktionen som uppstår.Målet för Innoscentia är att skapa en bättre och mer tillförlitligt metod för konsumenter att kunna avgöra om maten fortare är ätbara eller inte än den bäst-före-märkning som används nu.– Vårt mål är att lösa problemet med dagens datummärkning på livsmedel, som egentligen inte kan säga om maten fortfarande är säker eller inte att äta, säger Erik Lindberg, på Innoscentia.Bolaget var på plats i Slush i Helsingfors för att nätverka och träffa kollegor från startupvärlden, också för att Erik Lindberg deltog i ett panelsamtal om matinnovation och framtidens matindustri med bland annat en representant från finska Entocube, som utvecklar en slags automatiserad farm för ätbara insekter.

MechWarrior Online's Piranha Games is taking aim at the single-player market with the announcement of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries.The BattleTech universe is set to get its first single-player game in a decade and a half, somewhat unoriginally titled MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, courtesy of MechWarrior Online's Piranha Games.The news that 2002's MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries was to get an unexpected follow-up from Piranha Games was broken back in 2009, though the expected MechWarrior 5 actually launched as MechWarrior Online.Given its name, those unfamiliar with the title will be unsurprised to hear that the game was a multiplayer affair with a microtransaction framework many proclaimed as being little short of a pay-to-win system giving those willing to pony up the cash an unfair advantage over those trying to progress through the ranks organically.Despite complaints surrounding MechWarrior Online's microtransactions and stalled development by its creators, Piranha Games is back with the game everyone in 2009 expected: MechWarrior 5.Borrowing the same Mercenaries subtitle as 2002's MechWarrior 4, the game is expected to offer the same formula that made its predecessor a cult classic: the ability to roam the land in a giant mech, laying waste to enemies and buildings alike, earning credits to spend on new and bigger mechs and systems for customisation.
