Deliveroo customers have suffered account breaches and been charged for food and drink they did not order, an investigation by BBC One s Watchdog has found.The takeaway food app launched in 2013 and works based on a customer s location, showing nearby food outlets available to deliver to them.But an investigation by Watchdog claims that some users of the service have had their accounts hacked, with fraudsters able to order hundreds of pounds of food and drink to addresses around the country.Users can save payment information to the app, which despite not being fully visible when ordering, only needs to be tapped on to confirm it as a payment method.Deliveroo user Judith MacFadyen from Reading told Watchdog that her account was breached and more than £200 spent on burgers before being delivered to several London addresses.I noticed that I had a thank you email from Deliveroo for a burger joint in Chiswick.

In January 2016, the United States changed the rules of the E-3 visa to make it easier for skilled Australians working in the USA to stay there for longer.And yesterday President-elect Donald Trump announced he would direct the Department of Labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the American worker.E-3 visas could be construed as undercutting Americans, as they allow Australians who are offered a job by a US-based company two years residency, followed by an extension.Since the visa was simplified, Australians can even roll over the visa for 240 days while they apply for an extension.That's the same provision available under the H-1B visa for which Trump has expressed disdain.Australia won the E-3 visa and the grace period for extension applications in part as thanks for the nation's participation in US-led military ventures and also due to the US/Australia free trade agreement.

With everyone from Mark Zuckerberg to President Obama expressing concerns over the amount of fake news stories appearing online – and the fact that many people believe them – it s easy to forget that this sort of misinformation extends beyond politics.One of the most popular types of fake news items involves video games.As reported by Kotaku s Jason Schreier, made-up stories about video games have appeared on Facebook and in Google s search results for years, mainly thanks to robots and algorithms surfacing items from unreliable websites.The problem is at its worst when it comes to big-name game series such as Call of Duty, Fallout, and Grand Theft Auto.There have been a massive number of fake Grand Theft Auto 6 stories this year, ranging from definite release dates to news that the game will include the ability to teleport.Type Half-Life 3 into Google and you ll see that most of the top results are made up of fake items or, as is sometimes the case, headlines that try to get around the fact they re blatant lies by including a huge amount of question marks.

After an incredibly violent beginning, the seventh season of The Walking Dead has finally calmed down a bit.Indeed, the past two episodes have been extraordinarily slow, if not downright boring at times.Of course, fans of the show shouldn t worry too much as the series is simply laying the groundwork for what will likely be some thrilling episodes later on down the line.Indeed, the closing scene to this weekend s episode, with Jesus discovering that Carl had stowed himself away in one of the Saviors trucks, suggests that the action and suspense will return to normal levels next week.DON T MISS: How to get a NES Classic without spending $300Interestingly enough, the amount of drama and plotlines the writers of The Walking Dead want to cram into the current season appears to be far larger than a standard 60-minute TV spot would otherwise afford.

While US President-elect Trump has promised to bring jobs back to the coal-mining industry despite market forces favoring cheaper natural gas, America s northern neighbor is pressing to move beyond the fuel that started the Industrial Revolution.On Monday, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna announced a plan to completely phase out coal-burning power plants by 2030—unless those plants capture and store their carbon dioxide emissions.Although fossil fuels only account for about 20 percent of Canada s electricity due to a significant amount of hydroelectric power, coal is responsible for about three-quarters of energy CO2 emissions.That's equivalent to the emissions of 1.3 million cars, the government said.In October, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that all provinces would be required to implement carbon emissions pricing programs by 2018.British Columbia has had a carbon tax since 2008, while Alberta will have a carbon tax starting on January 1.

Dubbed Hikari, the supercomputer is currently working on calculations pertaining to the Zika virus crisis.HPE has joined forces with the Texas Advanced Computing Center to develop Hikari – the world s first solar-powered supercomputer.Currently calculating biology applications to help solve the Zika virus crisis, Hikari was developed in partnership with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization NEDO , a Japanese government agency, and NTT Facilities.The project to build Hikari stemmed from the need to overcome the power challenges of today s supercomputers.Supercomputers have the power to transform science and innovations, but the amount of energy they require has been a limiting factor towards their expansion.Because traditional supercomputers consume vast amounts of electricity and produce a lot of heat, larger cooling facilities must be constructed to ensure proper operation.

Sea Hero Quest is at first glance a heartwarming game for iOS and Android that asks a young boy to help his father tackle his increasing memory loss.It is much more than a game though, it is the world s largest dementia research experiment and this week the full scale of its achievements were revealed.In less than a year the app has created the kind of data that its creators say would take 9,500 years to collect in lab conditions.2.5 million people have played the game so far and have accrued a staggering 63 years of gameplay in total.Professor of applied dementia research at the University of East Anglia, Michael Hornberger said to the BBC: The amount of data that has already been generated by people playing Sea Hero Quest all around the world is phenomenal and is enabling us to reveal a vital global benchmark of how people, of all ages and from all over the use spatial navigation.The game asks players to remember locations and navigate a small fishing vessel around a map.

The latest iPhone 8 rumors suggest Apple is preparing a high-end, 5.2-inch iPhone with a OLED display, a newer kind of display technology that has deeper blacks and better color.This phone will be Apple's flagship.The touchscreen on the high-end smartphone will be 5.1 or 5.2-inches, and the rest of the glass screen will wrap around the edges of the phone, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.This OLED iPhone will have a "new look" with a virtual home button embedded into the screen, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.iPhone 7S?Apple will also launch two new iPhones with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, which will be iterative successors to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, says KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a research note seen by 9to5Mac and Bloomberg.This lines up with other rumors that Apple will launch three new iPhone models in 2017.The biggest change to the two lower-end iPhones is that they will use glass casing, as previously predicted by Kuo, who says the glossy glass casing is particularly popular in Asia.It's entirely possible that these plans could change, especially if certain parts, like the new OLED screens, become scarce.Apple was reportedly planning to launch three iPhones this past year but killed one model at the last minute.

The PlayStation 4 Pro definitely looks the part of being a high-end games console.It s about the same size as the original PS4 and a little bit taller, as visibly demonstrated by that triple-decker design.It s heavier too, a lot heavier, so don t go leaping in and thinking you can just haul it out of the box with ease.On the front you ll find the optical disc drive, two physical buttons and two USB ports.On the back you ll find a HDMI port, Optical Out, PlayStation Camera Port, USB and LAN.Inside there s a 1TB hard-drive, a welcome boost considering the average game these days will set you back between 40-60GB in size.
