En Twitter-användare har publicerat bilder på vad personen menar är skärmskydd för Galaxy S8 och Galaxy S8 Plus.Skyddet, om det nu faktiskt är avsett för Galaxy S8, ser ut att täcka hela fronten och det ger därmed en god idé om telefonernas design.Kanter saknas helt längs sidorna då det rör sig om en Edge-panel, medan övre och undre ramarna är minimala i jämförelse med de allra flesta smartphones idag.Efter alla rykten om minimala ramar för Galaxy S8:orna är det nu direkt sannolikt att Samsung kommer erbjuda väldigt stora skärmar i förhållande till yttermåtten.

Everyone knows the frustration of pulling your buds out of your pocket and needing to unravel them before use.Even worse, you ve probably experienced the shock and terror that inevitably arrives when a stray doorknob or table corner violently rips your phones out as you walk by.More: From classical to hip-hop, here are the best songs to listen to at workApple s decision to ditch headphone ports with the iPhone 7 was a controversial one, but the transition had to happen eventually.The 6mm drivers inside each bud deliver resonant, impactful audio, and the battery life — around eight hours, depending on volume — outclasses most of the competition.How much will it cost: $130

We ve all heard the warnings about passwords — use a variety of character types, make it random, use a password manager — but many of us, it seems, still aren t listening.By definition, a list of most common passwords will always be a list of worst passwords, regardless of how many people are using strong, complex, unique combinations.What s interesting about the 2016 list released by Keeper — which, keep in mind, is a maker of password management software — is that it gives us a look at just how much of our information is locked behind shoddy passwords.All up, Keeper says the 25 passwords on its list accounted for more than half the passwords collected.It suggests that the owners of these passwords think they re defending against a human who is unlikely to try tricky combinations like that, when actually they re defending against software which will run through all these combinations and thousands more — plus the entire dictionary including words like google — in a matter of seconds.Another observation, and one that could be used to question the validity of lists like this in the future, is that the passwords at 15 and 20 appear to be random 10-character phrases that have no place on this list.

Apple is increasing the price of apps for UK customers, apparently in response to the fall in the pound following the vote to leave the European Union.The changes to Apple's pricing structures will mean that an app that previously cost 99 cents in the US and 79p in the UK will now cost 99p, a 25 percent increase."Price tiers on the App Store are set internationally on the basis of several factors, including currency exchange rates, business practices, taxes, and the cost of doing business.These factors vary from region to region and over time," said an Apple spokesperson.Apple said the new higher prices will roll out to the App Store over the next seven days.It is likely that the same dollars-to-pounds parity will also hit the iTunes Store for TV shows, movies, and books, according to 9to5Mac, which first reported the change.

They re packed with tech, sporting accelerometers and gyroscopes, infrared sensors and Rumble HD, which Nintendo says is precise enough to let you feel the difference between a virtual glass with one ice cube in it, and a glass with two.I realized that Nintendo had created an interesting console, but probably not one I d ever actually buy.The idea of using the Switch s controllers to play with people, and not with digital representations of other people, also seems as though it could potentially open a breadth of new experiences.But then the bit about Joy-Con ended, and my excitement dwindled.Soon, I realized that Nintendo had created what might be an interesting console, but probably not one I d ever actually buy.Despite the time spent talking about the Joy-Con controller, most of the Switch announcement was video game business as usual.

Salesforce has acquired the software company Unity in a move designed to improve the design chops at its productivity app service Quip.Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.Unity was founded in 2015 by Facebook veterans Drew Hamlin, Joey Flynn, and Andy Chung and had released at least one app publicly: Pinchworm.The game received high ratings in the App Store, but since then, the company claimed that it was cranking on some new productivity tools.When reached for comment, Quip CEO Bret Taylor declined to cite what was next on the product roadmap, but did say that his time working with Hamlin and Flynn at Facebook and their creative thinking greatly impacted his decision to acquire their company.Unity s design resume appears to be impressive in that the team was responsible for the experiences with Facebook Home, News Feed, and a bevy of other features on the social network.It s this thinking and design possibilities that Taylor thinks will be beneficial to Quip.If you ve never used Quip, it s a single app where you can produce documents and spreadsheets a la Google Docs and Sheets, but with a minimalist style.

Cybercriminals are attempting to infect people with bank data stealing Ramnit malware by using phishing emails pretending to come from a charity.Migrant Help is a real British charity which offers support to distressed migrants arriving in the UK, but hackers are using its name in an effort to infect victims with the Ramnit banking Trojan, Action Fraud, the UK's fraud and cybercrime centre has warned.A phishing email with the subject 'Thank you for choosing to donate to Migrant helpline' is sent to the potential victim, claiming that they recently donated money to the charity.The emails contain a fake receipt for which, as noted by My Online Security, lists the first name and second name of target as well as their actual phone number.It is not clear how the scammers obtained this information, but using the target's real name and phone number makes the email make look more authentic.The message contains a reference number and invites those with questions about their donation - which victims are likely to have if they've never given to Migrant Help - to click on a link which has been customised to contain the target's name, in order to download a document supposedly containing more information.

Netflix recently introduced an option for users to download some videos for offline playback.It s a fantastic feature for plane flights or long road trips, but only available on mobile devices.If you want to use your laptop to watch Netflix on the plane, good luck.That s the problem DVDVideoSoft s Free Downloader for Netflix application was supposed to solve, but as you can imagine, Netflix wasn t too happy about it.The software did exactly what you d expect: allow you to pull videos off Netflix and onto your hard drive for offline viewing.Rather than using an official Netflix system, like the iOS and Android apps that allow offline downloads, this is the internet equivalent of a bootleg DVD ripper.

Aside from meddling in the US election, there s another thing the Russian Federation seems to be worrying a lot about these days: cigarette smoking.Russia s smoking rates are some of the highest in the world, according to the World Health Organization.Now the Russian government, a big fan of banning things, is going to try and ban citizens born after 2015 from buying cigarettes.This would be one of the world s strictest smoking bans, and Bhutan was the only other nation I could find that outlawed cigarette sales completely.The ban proposal obtained by Russian newspaper Izvestia would go into effect in 2033, when the affected Russian citizens now babies turn eighteen years old.Russia s legal smoking age is eighteen, so the law would ensure that those born in 2015 and later could never legally purchase cigarettes.

Authors of the Sundown exploit kit have integrated a since patched and limited Microsoft Edge vulnerability from a security firm's public proof-of-concept.The addition of the twin bugs CVE-2016-7200 and CVE-2016-7201 means unpactched users of one of the world's most unpopular web browsers are likely to be targeted by a wide cross-section of malware writers.It is no cause for high concern for most Windows users: the Edge browser by default applies patches automatically meaning fewer users would be affected, while improved exploit mitigations in Windows 10 frustrates the ability for criminals to have malware execute.However, the Edge Chakra JavaScript scripting exploit will be incorporated quickly into rival kits since use of zero days and new vulnerabilities are a prized advantage in the highly competitive exploit kit market.Malware monitor Kafeine reported Sundown's use of the exploits which were taken from a proof-of-concept released by Texas security startup Theori.I have been told that with Windows 10 release 1607 , Microsoft Edge has some quite strong mitigation," Kafeine says.

Koolova kräver inte pengar, enbart att du läser på om ämnet.Gör du inte det väntar däremot oanade konsekvenser.Gisslanprogram, mer känt under den engelska benämningen ransomware, är ett av vår tids snabbast växande it-hot, och förväntas öka rejält under 2017.I vanliga fall låser den skadliga programvaran dina filer genom kryptering och erbjuder sedan upplåsning mot betalning.Förövarna bakom nya gisslanprogrammet Koolova kräver däremot någonting helt annat av sina offer.Istället för lösensumma eller liknande vill hackarna sprida allmänbildning kring it-säkerhet och gisslanprogram; den drabbade behöver nämligen bara läsa två artiklar rörande ämnet, sedan återfås tillgång till de krypterade filerna.
