This time around, the recalls are including some passenger-side air bags that are fitted with the potentially faulty inflators, with the recalled vehicles being in the Gulf Coast region where humidity levels are often high.Such consistently high humidity levels are believed to interact with the inflators in such a way that in the event of an accident, the airbag is deployed with too much force, possibly causing shrapnel to explode outward toward the driver.The additional recalls aren t surprising in light of this month s Takata news — another 35 million to 40 million inflators will be added to the recall list over the new couple of years.The U.S. has been particularly hard-hit by the recalls, but isn't the only nation affected.In a statement today, Japan's government announced that another 7 million vehicles with Takata inflators will be recalled in Japan over safety concerns.Eleven individuals have died as a result of the faulty airbags, and more than one hundred individuals have suffered injuries.

We ve recently noticed a potential risk to your LinkedIn account coming from outside LinkedIn.We should be using password manager apps that randomly generate passwords stored in an encrypted file, but that s not how most of us manage our online lives.While combining upper and lower case passwords with numbers to alter a memorable word - M4raD0na - is often advised, these are more easily cracked than you might thinkGood advice is to make a memorable, unusal sentence: "I am a 7-foot tall metal giant" is better than "My name is John", and use the first letter of each word with punctuation: "Iaa7-ftmg"Alternatively, you can use a password manager such as 1Password, which can generate secure passwords and store them onlineThe best way to protect yourself is to use two-factor authentication, which will send a text with a code or use an app to verify your log-inIncreasingly, it seems that passwords are going to be replaced by…you.By 2020, the number of biometric smartphone users will be at 2bn and growing.Darktrace s hacking diagnostic tool was installed in a large Asian manufacturing business which used a fingerprint system to control access to sensitive areas of its campus.It s not hard to imagine scenarios where crimes are pinned on the wrong person, or conversely criminals planting evidence linking you irrefutably with dodgy activities.

Snapchat quietly added a seasoned IPO specialist to its board last year, the latest sign that the fast-growing messaging app is preparing for a public-market debut even as it raises huge sums of money from private investors.Snapchat listed Stan Meresman as its board member for the first time in a regulatory filing on Thursday.Meresman wasn't listed in any of Snapchat's previous SEC filings.On his personal website, Meresman describes himself as a financial expert who "advises CEOs & CFOs on preparing to become a public reporting company, IPO process, operating as a public company, and scaling the company for rapid growth."Meresman notes on his website that he has guided four companies through their successful IPOs — LinkedIn, Zynga, Riverbed Technology, and Polycom — and he served as the CFO at chipmaker Cypress Semiconductor during its IPO.Meresman, who serves on the boards of LinkedIn and Palo Alto Networks, joined Snapchat's board in July 2015, according to his LinkedIn page.Snapchat's representative wasn't immediately available for comment.The company closed a massive $1.81 billion round of funding on Thursday, according to the US Securities and Exchange Commission filing.The funding was part of a long-term effort that, according to the file, began in February 2015.In an appearance at the Recode conference in May 2015, Spiegel said that "we need to IPO" and said the company has a plan to do so.Meresman appears to be a key part of that plan.Other members of Snapchat's board listed in Thursday's filing include Spiegel, cofounder Robert Murphy, venture capitalist Mitch Lasky, Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton, and Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles.NOW WATCH: A college student declared her love on Snapchat and captivated the whole campusLoading video...

Big, bad sugar is being replaced by the fresher, greener sounding evaporated cane juice.It doesn t, says the FDA.In a subtle but biting takedown, the FDA directed manufacturers away from the term evaporated cane juice , which they describe as not accurately describing the basic nature of the food.The use of juice in the name of a product that is essentially sugar is confusingly similar to the more common use of the term juice — the aqueous liquid expressed or extracted from one or more fruits or vegetables, purees of the edible portions of one or more fruits or vegetables, or any concentrates of such liquid or puree.The FDA also put food producers on notice against any further attempts at hiding the word inside a sweet coating of obfuscations.This ingredient should instead be declared on food labels as sugar , said the FDA, preceded by one or more truthful, non-misleading descriptors if the manufacturer so chooses.

I recently joined a small team that manages a design school and noticed that they have a lot of poor practices when it comes to social, marketing, print advertising—basically all of marketing.I don't mean to talk smack but I'm so lost being in all of it trying to grasp an understanding of the market, products, and their strategy, or lack thereof.Still I'm packed with deadlines.How do I—Idk if this sounds more like a rant, but I'm so lost.Edit: I decided to make a proposal for a rebrand and an overhaul of the current marketing 'strategy' would anyone have some resources or tips should you have done it before?

In a thread announcing the rollout, Reddit product team member Amg137 Andy acknowledged that other image hosting services have been an integral part of how content is shared on the site and that they are grateful to those services.Moving forward, however, Andy said they are looking forward to delivering a more seamless experience with the new feature.As of writing, users will be able to upload images up to 20MB in size and GIFs as large as 100MB directly to Reddit.Clicking on a Reddit-hosted image from any listing – via the front page or a subreddit, for example – will take users directly to the thread for said image to join in on the discussion.Reddit is taking a cautious approach to the rollout, partnering with just 16 communities initially with plans to add another 50 next week.Communities involved in the initial rollout include Gaming, Space, OldSchoolCool, Sports, Art, Food and EarthPorn, just to name a few.

Anders Ygeman photographer: Jessica Gow / TT Swedish authorities' work with sensitive information is not good enough, says the National Audit Office and requires the government to intervene and control the whole thing. The conclusion is that it is not good enough. Our review shows that work on information not sufficiently high priority of the authorities in relation to the risks, says Auditor Margareta Åberg in a press release. These deficiencies can lead to undesirable consequences, as when the Civil Aviation Administration radar stopped air traffic at several airports recently, or in April, when no one could leave out prescription medication. There came a National Audit report recently that revealed serious shortcomings, which is serious in itself. Among the proposals from the National Audit Office found among other things that the government should consider establishing a central function to support the work of the authorities, and to let the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency to develop a model to improve information security.

Samma fina ljudkvalitet som Boom.Flera högtalare kan kopplas ihop.Liksom de andra högtalarna är serien är den som gjord för att ha med sig ut för lek och bad då den har det bästa skyddet mot damm och vatten i testet.Anslutningen via Bluetooth går ganska smidigt och vill man ansluta en annan musikkälla sitter det en Aux-ingång bakom en gummilucka.Även om man så klart inte kan få någon djupbas i den här storleksklassen så låter det snyggt och fylligt ner till en viss gräns.Tack vare de två diskanterna får man en bra spridning så att alla omkring hör detaljerna i musiken.

With E3 growing steadily closer, we're getting increasingly interested in what Microsoft and Sony are doing with their current consoles.Rumors have suggested that both companies are planning to release some sort of incremental update to their flagship consoles.However, now it looks like Microsoft may be announcing something completely different.For years we've heard rumors that Microsoft would release some kind of scaled-down Xbox TV, which would focus on delivering video content.Sources close to The Verge have said that Microsoft has been working on some sort of Chromecast-like device that can be used to stream Xbox content to your TV.Currently, you can already stream games to a Windows 10 PC.

Summer blockbuster season is getting ready to hit high gear, with plenty of big-budget releases on the way in the next few weeks.After 2013's Into Darkness turned borrowed a little too much from the Wrath of Khan, here's hoping that this latest sequel stands up on its own, without relying too heavily on plot points we've seen before.The trailer doesn't pull any punches, swapping lutes and lyres for a decidedly modern heavy metal soundtrack, terrifying-looking beasties and more drop-dead gorgeous locations to explore.The expansion launches next week, and looks like a suitable way to end one of the best RPGs we've played in yearsThe second much better trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot landed too late for last week's trailer roundup - seriously, by about 45 minutes - but it's still worth checking out if you've managed to avoid it until now.For a game series so obsessed with intricate little details, GT Sport's debut gameplay trailer still manages to squeeze in some pretty epic bumper-to-bumper racing between the lingering shots of its bulging virtual garage.A new incursion, new gear sets and top-end guns should bring your lapsed Agent back up to scratch, ready to take on the new high value targets dotted around the city, but it's the new Dark Zone additions that appeal to my evil side.

Det vanligaste är att dagens drönare är utrustade med digitala kameror.Men varför vara som alla andra när man kan vara annorlunda.Studenten Nick Kundrat, som studerat foto vid Rochester Institute of Technology i USA, valde att gå en udda väg.Han monterade istället fast direktbildskameran Fuji Instax Mini 8, som alltså tar fysiska bilder, på en DJI Flamewheel f450.Resultatet blir naturligtvis att kameran tar bilderna uppe i luften och sedan låter de dala ner mot marken.Smart eller bara udda?

By driving a sped-up version of natural selection in the lab, the method has created new enzymes for industrial catalysts, household detergents, and even to make rocket fuel from sugar.She said the "basic concept" of using evolution to create better enzymes emerged from her laboratory more than 20 years ago."Evolution, to me, is the best designer of all time.It is now used in laboratories worldwide and has produced many valuable enzymes, including one used in manufacturing Januvia, a popular drug for type 2 diabetes, which would otherwise be produced using heavy metals.Directed evolution has also produced catalysts that allow industrial chemicals and fuels to be made from renewable sources."So this company is producing jet fuel from renewable resources."

The company also debuted a gadget outside the smartwatch category: a little $69 box named Core that clips on to your shirt or keys, has no display, plays Spotify playlists, and tracks runs with GPS.And speaking of running, fitness is Pebble s new focus across the board.More on that later.The Pebble 2 is expected to ship in September, the Time 2 in November, and the Core in January.Let s break down what s new.The Pebble 2 looks a lot like Pebble s original smartwatch, which debuted on Kickstarter in 2012, but it now packs a heart rate monitor and features a thinner design.In about four years, Pebble s namesake smartwatch has effectively transitioned from flagship product to budget option to full-fledged Fitbit competitor.The look of the watch is decidedly sporty, as Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky put it in an interview with VentureBeat.It s a cute little box that streams music like a modern-day iPod Shuffle that s Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky s comparison — and, I must admit, I still have a soft spot for the original Shuffle.The Core is for runners who don t like running with their phones, coming at a time when smartwatches aren t smart enough to replace our phones.It works on its own or in tandem with a Pebble smartwatch.

Google has launched a new Android app to help people perform scientific experiments that they describe as a digital "lab notebook".Science Journal measures data using both inbuilt sensors inside phones – such as accelerometers, light sensors and more – and external sensors available to buy on Google's Making & Science website."You can use the sensors in your phone or connect to external sensors to conduct experiments on the world around you," Google says.You can also organise your experiments into projects, as well as "make predicions, take notes and collect data in multiple trials, then annotate and explore your results."Projects suggested by Google include measuring running speeds over the course of a week or measuring the movement of homemade wind spinners.Google plans to open source the app by the end of the summer.

Webcams are very vulnerable to intrusion and stealth viewers. It shows an experiment Daily News has done. More than 6000 sneak preview were recorded during the seven months that the newspaper reporter had a webcam installed in his living room. On one occasion an unknown person hacked into the camera from an IP address in Italy and secretly looked at the reporter, who at the time was in his living room. The survey shows that around five per cent of infringements took place via the Swedish IP addresses. Most are in private homes, but also in a lot of companies and a few municipalities.
