T-Mobile s new One plan was framed as an end-all, be-all for those seeking truly unlimited data.Unfortunately, the numerous lines of fine print have folks, including those at the watchdog Electronic Frontier Foundation EFF , feeling uneasy about the new plan, reports The Daily Dot.Announced on August 18, One gives customers unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data starting at $70 a month, with the ability to add up to an additional seven lines.There are plenty of catches in the new plan, however, such as tethering stuck at 2G speeds and potential throttling if you use over 26GB of data.Video quality is limited to standard definition in the One plan, a catch T-Mobile first introduced with Binge On in November.But Binge On lets you uncheck a box to unlock better quality for free; customers with the One plan who want to do so will need to pay $25 a month on top of what they pay for the plan itself.

Large numbers of Mac users report receiving unexpected installation dialogs for Google Earth.If you re one of the many Mac OS X users who received an installation dialog for Google Earth Update Helper asking you to enter your password, it wasn t malware.Instead, it seems to be a bad update transmitted through Google s background software updater—something you probably didn t even know you had.You can delete the Google Earth plug-in that caused it or remove the software updater entirely.The company s Mac software installs a background agent, which regularly checks for app updates and pushes them to your computer for Google Earth, Chrome, and other Google software.The Google Earth update was pushed out this way, but users including this reporter who entered their password found that the update didn t take place.

Here are the basic, super easy ways to do it:Use a unique Password, but don t worry too much about complexityConventional wisdom says that if you use a long password with crazy letters, numbers, and symbols, your account is safe.The fact is, a password like annexrubykneadtone is just as secure as J e F*b J*S;36fSvbSLX R as long as it s unique.When a hacker is trying to break into your account, the first thing they ll probably do is search through previous database dumps for your email address.If you use unique passwords for each service, you know that if one of them gets breached, all of your other accounts will be safe.

Turns out, most people aren t all that into their day jobs.According to a study performed by Wakefield Research, around 75 percent of 2,000 respondents said they are unfulfilled by their current job.Part of that comes from the fact that work is work, but the entrepreneurial attitude seems to be spreading, with 44 percent of people showing more interest in starting a side business than they were two years ago.Millennials, in particular, are showing more interest in starting their own business, with 2 out of 3 saying they d like to start their own business.That s where Moo comes in.Moo commissioned the study as part of a campaign called Find your 6-11, playing off the idea of escaping your 9-5 job.

the Linux-bug can be used to spy on you through your phone's internet traffic.A bug that previously existed in version 3.6 of the Linux operating system and allowed the attacks through the user's internet connections has unfortunately even found its way to Android.It announces säkerhetsfirman Lookout, which discovered the exact same bug in Android Kitkat 4.4.the Bug is also estimated to be in the later versions of Kitkat – which means that around 80 per cent of all Android phones may be vulnerable to such an attack.But there is both good news and bad news.The bad thing is that the vulnerability could allow the interception and tampering, without the intrusion is evident in the network.

These days, it's almost impossible to keep a new device, be it smartphone, tablet, or even smartwatch, secret for long.While most of the time, manufacturers want to keep things completely under wraps to protect it from the competition, leaks can also work in favor of a product, building up the hype at no extra cost to the company.So this latest set of leaks for the LG V20 could still go both ways, especially considering how ambiguous the market has been towards the LG G5's take on modularity.The information comes from a Redditor who claims to have some insider scoop on the T-Mobile's release details for the LG V20, though, as always, take things with a grain of salt.As for carrier-specific information, he claims that T-Mobile plans to open pre-orders on the 14th of September, with a very tentative September 23 shipping date.As for the price, it's set at $650, which is a very surprising number considering an equally high-end Galaxy Note 7 costs around $850.

Microsoft has officially extended support for Intel's Skylake chips in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 through to their respective EOL dates, from a planned 2018 cessation.Microsoft has officially extended the support lifespan for its users with Skylake hardware and its previous-generation Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.While Microsoft had originally set a deadline of the 17th of July 2017 for support of Skylake chips in its last-generation operating systems, as part of its not-so-gentle campaign to upgrade as many users as possible to Windows 10, it has been having second and third thoughts regarding its decision.Earlier this year Microsoft extended the deadline for cessation of support by a further year to July 2018, and now the company has announced that it's adding another three and six years to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 respectively.'Enterprise customers are moving to Windows 10 faster than any version of Windows, claimed Microsoft's Shad Larsen, director of Windows business planning, in the announcement as an apparent attempt to head off any suggestion that Windows 10 is proving unpopular with business users.'At the same time, we recognise that, in some instances, customers have a few systems that require longer deployment timeframes.

Bullrande fartyg stör knölvalen i dess födosökande, visar en ny studie.Man skulle kunna tro att haven är tillräckligt vida och djupa för att valarna ska få leva ostörda.Men under deras långa vandringar från tropiska hav till polarhav passerar djuren kustnära farleder där fartyg skapar buller långt under vattenytan.Ett amerikanskt forskningslag har nu undersökt hur detta ihållande, lågfrekventa ljud stör knölvalen.Genom att placera sensorer på tio knölvalar i västra Nordatlanten kunde forskarna registrera allt ljud kring djuren och deras rörelsemönster.Studien visade att hälften av knölvalarna, alla vuxna honor, inte fullt ut kunde utföra sina sidorullningar när fartyg bullrade i närheten.

Top executives are looking to change that perception by making the company s next-generation models more entertaining to drive, and by taking the lineup in a more aggressive direction.A toned-down version of the stunning GT concept pictured introduced in 2011 will be the centerpiece of the imminent performance offensive.Set to go on sale next year, it will retain the show car s four-door coupe body style while adopting a tamer, less futuristic design.Buyers will be asked to choose between a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a frugal turbodiesel, and a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 engine rated at 380 horsepower in its most basic state of tune.A tweaked version of the six-cylinder will power a range-topping, track-oriented version of the GT, according to British magazine Autocar.The GT moniker will also be applied to sportier versions of existing cars.

If you want to PC game on a budget, AMD has your back.After rolling out the Radeon RX 480 and 470 chips, AMD has now launched the RX 460 starting at $110.We are looking at the Sapphire Nitro Radeon RX 460 OC, which is a $140 variation.AMD is positioning this low-end card as its esports model, meaning it can handle games like Overwatch, Rocket League, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but struggles with more visually intensive single-player experiences like The Witcher 3 and The Division.But plenty of people want an inexpensive card that will get them high-end performance in online multiplayer games.After all, millions of people play League of Legends, Dota 2, and CS:GO.And that is who AMD is targeting with the 460, and I think this GPU is a winner for everyone in that audience.Plenty of power for the priceGoing from a 1080 or even a 480 down to the 460 is a steep drop off, but it s easy to accept the limits of AMD s low-end graphics chip when you see its price.I tested the card out on the same system I tested the RX 470 and 480 on — with an Intel Core i5-4690K, 16GB of G.Skill DDR3 memory, and Z97-Pro motherboard.
