Stop me if you've heard of a scenario like this before.Someone releases a product designed to make life easier or more secure, in this case a smartwatch for kids, but under closer scrutiny it turns out its full of serious security holes.The Norwegian Consumer Council tested a number of smartwatches designed for kids, including Gator and GPS for Kids.These devices are designed to let parents track the location of their kids and communicate with them if need be.What the NCC found, however, was that they were riddled with security holes that attackers could exploit.Not only could they attack and communicate with the kids wearing the watches, it was even found to be possible to spoof the location and make the kid wearing it appear as though they were somewhere completely different.

BuddyGuard, the Berlin startup behind the Flare AI-powered home security camera, has raised €3.4 million in new funding, money it plans to use to ramp up marketing of the newly-launched device.Leading the round is German electrical specialist Bachmann Group, with participation from over 20 unnamed angel investors across Europe.Originally funded via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in 2015, BuddyGuard’s first product broadly competes with other connected security cameras, such as Google Nest Cam or Netgear’s Arlo, but is positioned as a more intelligent offering.The device uses AI to recognise faces and suspect sounds so that it can proactively alert a home owner of intruders without the need for them to proactively monitor the camera’s audio-visual feed.“Camera solutions are usually nothing more but a camera with a motion sensor, triggering an endless stream of notifications on the user’s phone.This simply isn’t good enough for securing your home,” BuddyGuard co-founder and CEO Herbert Hellemann tells me.

It’s a horror story for the modern world: you show someone an image on your phone, only for them to start browsing uninvited.You snatch your phone away, hoping they didn’t stumble across one of the intimate photos that may be residing, fully exposed, on your handset.Artificial intelligence may be the solution to this problem, and it comes in the form of an app called Nude.The taking and the storing of explicit photos with a phone is tricky — do it wrong and you may end up sharing a photo with someone you didn’t mean to.Casually leaving these images in your phone’s camera roll is a good way for someone else to accidentally see them, and so the popular option has usually been something like a hidden photos app, a password-protected photo vault, or something like Samsung’s secure folder.A new app called Nude aims to be a better solution than all of the above because it uses artificial intelligence to do most of the work.

You spend a large portion of Shadow of War battling lowly orcs and trolls, as well as more powerful orc captains — named characters who like to chat Talion up before initiating a fight to the death.Normally, entering Wraith mode and clicking on a captain will let you know his strengths, but in order to learn his vulnerabilities, you need to seek out “worms.” These messenger orcs are spread out among the forces of Mordor and marked with a small green diamond-like symbol above their head.This information will often give you an immediate edge in battle, such as when you learn that a target can be instantly killed by fire.Knowing what notnot to do will help to keep your alive, but more importantly, it will keep you from looking stupid.Countering every attacker keeps your enemies at bay and your combo chain going up, but counters don’t do very much damage until later in the game and breaks up your fighting flow.Captains are almost always guarded by at least a few minions, regardless of where they’re located on the map.

Säkerhetsluckan gäller alla moderna Wi-Fi-nätverk som använder WPA eller WPA2 som kryptering.Angripare med kunskap om sårbarheten sägs kunna läsa trafiken mellan enheter och accesspunkter och i vissa fall även modifiera trafiken för att injicera malware i hemsidor.Enligt rapporten behöver hackare inte tillgång till lösenordet för Wi-Fi-nätverket för att utföra attacken.Luckan ska även kunna användas för att stjäla känslig information som exempelvis kontokortsnummer och lösenord.Wi-Fi-trafiken för enheter som kör Android 6.0 eller senare är extra sårbara enligt forskarna.Drygt 40 procent av alla Androidenheter sägs vara mottagliga för en särskilt aggressiv variant av attacken som kan manipulera trafiken.

While Google is already well-known for its creative, unique office environments, and Apple has its cool new “spaceship campus,” Microsoft has revealed that its employees can now enjoy a trio of giant treehouses.The treetop meeting spaces were built at the company’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington, and are made to embrace the effects of nature on “creativity, focus, and happiness.”Microsoft shared a video on its company blog on Friday, detailing that the treehouses include a mix of enclosed meeting spaces and open areas, with a sheltered lounge to be completed later this year.The structures were designed by Pete Nelson, from the Animal Planet TV show Treehouse Masters, and were built to last for the next 20 years.While the treehouses allow employees to enjoy the sights, sounds, and weather of the outdoors, they also include the necessities like WiFi and power outlets, along with comforts such as rocking chairs, weatherproof benches, fireplaces, and even an indoor cafeteria.Apparently the idea for the treehouses came about after a survey showed that employees wanted to work outside if given the chance.

Divisive political posts linked to Russian operatives ended up in an unexpected place during the 2016 U.S. presidential election: PinterestThe social bookmarking site, which is popular for wedding planning, home decor and recipe ideas, also found Russian-linked posts on its platform, The Washington Post reported.Pinterest users were saving or “pinning” this content onto their digital scrap boards from other websites, including social networks Facebook and Twitter.In September, Facebook said that 470 fake accounts and pages that appear to be linked to Russian entities ran roughly 3,000 ads from 2015 to 2017.“We believe the fake Facebook content was so sophisticated that it tricked real Americans into saving it to Pinterest,” Pinterest head of public policy Charlie Hale told the media outlet.“We’ve removed the content brought to our attention and continue to investigate.”

Two helpful new features are making their way to a Twitter feed near you.“Happening Now” is launching with sporting events and will make it easier to find tweets about events happening in real time.Bookmarking, also dubbed Save For Later, has been announced and planned, but it hasn’t been rolled out to the masses.Twitter Moments were met with mixed reviews, but they truly are an important element for the social network for less regular users.Twitter is hands-down the go-to source for real-time, and tying Tweets to a source/event is where Twitter really shines.Hardcore Twitter users may find this excessive, but it does make sense.

During this year's Ignite conference in Orlanda, Florida, Microsoft revealed that it has developed a so far nameless programming language, which shall be specially adapted in order to develop applications that will roll on the so-called quantum computers in the future.The new language must however have a strong integration to Microsoft's Visual Basic platform so hopefully it will be not to start on the new one for the programmers who are dealing with the new language.Because the quantum computation is right, the mystery stuff so I don't know if someone was directly much wiser when the award-winning mathematician Michael Freedman from Microsoft commented on the new language with:"Microsoft's qubit* will be based on a new form of matter called topological matter that also has this property that as the information stored in the matter is stored globally, you can't find the information in any particular place."anyway, do you feel that this is your bag so as expected Microsoft released a preview version of its new language at the end of the year.In the clip above, you can quickly check out what a quantum computer is and how it works.

The act of passing on Doctor Who's lead role is a weird one, since the actors are stuck in a limbo where they know they're on the way out, but they don't know who's going to take their place yet.Peter Capaldi however managed to figure out there was a monumental change coming for his replacement... thanks to a pair of trousers.Speaking at his final New York Comic Con panel as the incumbent Doctor, Capaldi revealed that he accidentally learned that the next Doctor would be female a few days before he was supposed to, thanks to, weirdly enough, a visit to his tailor:I went into Paul Smiths, which is a very wonderful clothes shop in London where I buy my suits, and everybody knows me in there.And they said, "We just got a call," they said, "from the Doctor Who office saying, 'Can we have a pair of [Peter's] trousers, but with a waist size 30?'"And I thought, 'I'm finished, I don't need any more trousers!'
