Låt oss börja Lösenordsbytardagen i dyster ton: Under åren har vi rapporterat om otaliga säkerhetsläckor.Och det handlar inte längre om mindre sajter – även stora tjänster som Dropbox, Yahoo och Linkedin har drabbats av massiva lösenordsläckor.Tidigare har vi tipsat om haveibeenpwned.com, som snabbt kollar om dina kontouppgifter har kommit på vift.När vi i redaktionen testade tjänsten blev flera av oss smärtsamt medvetna om att det var dags att uppdatera våra lösenord.Med detta i bakhuvudet är det naturligtvis extremt tråkigt att se att svenskarna fortfarande har mycket att kvar att göra när det kommer till säkerhet på internet.Årets resultat visar visserligen att rutinerna har blivit bättre, men skillnaderna är långt ifrån så stora som vi hade önskat.

2016 was a year of growth for the U.S. gaming industry.According to industry-tracking firm The NPD Group and the Entertainment Software Association ESA , the U.S. video games industry earned $30.4 billion in 2016.That is up from $30.2 billion in 2015.Growth in entertainment software consumer spend was seen across the mobile, PC, virtual reality, subscription, portable, and digital console segments, said Mat Piscatella, industry analyst at The NPD Group, in a press release sent to GamesBeat.Consumers have more options to purchase and enjoy entertainment software than ever before, while developers have more and easier ways of delivering that content.No matter the delivery platform, entertainment software has never been more engaging, diverse or accessible.2016 saw the introduction of virtual reality to a wider audience with the releases of the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR headsets.

Förra året så släppte forskare vid MIT och Cern den end-to-end-krypterade mejlklienten Protonmail som ett svar på behandlingen av visselblåsaren Edward Snowden.Nu snart ett år har tjänsten blivit världens mest använda krypterade mejlklient.Nu följer de upp genombrottet genom att skapa en så kallad onion-sajt https://protonirockerxow.onion för att användare som lever under sträng nätcensur enklare ska kunna nå mejltjänsten genom Tor.Enligt forskarna själva kommer beslutet efter ett dystert år där internet inskränks allt mer och mer från totalitära stater.Allt fler länder har tagit aktiva åtgärder för att övervaka eller förhindra åtkomsten för integritetstjänster, genom att skära bort åtkomsten till dessa vitala verktyg.Vi insåg att det inte är en fråga om Protonail kommer att censureras i vissa länder, utan när , skriver Protonmail på sin sajt och fortsätter.

the Vague and contradictory, partly artistic ideas, with no practical connection to the present.a Strong desire to control the entire country and restore its gone to glory by building a new state, where the prevailing peace, law and goodness.the Writer Luigi barzini's the characterization in the book The Italians in 1964 to take the idea of the first Benito Mussolini, but it is a lie: the story of Cola di Rienzi, who ruled Rome and in his own mind the whole of Italy two times 1300-mid.Cola, namely Nicola was born from humble beginnings, but he studied the Bible and the ancient classics so accurate, I could quote them from memory in their speeches.He made an impact as well as the Roman peasant that the Holy seat, who was in exile in France, in Avignon.He organized a church with the support of the bloodless coup 1347 and declared himself among the "Widows, orphans and the poor tribuuniksi".

Vine s six seconds of fame are up.Sort of.Twitter, parent company of Vine, is killing the app but is turning it into Vine Camera, which will allow users to shoot looping videos that they can then post to Twitter.The switch happens today.San Francisco-based Twitter announced in October that it would shut down Vine after also announcing that it was cutting 9 percent of its workforce.In December, Twitter followed up and said Vine would become a pared-down camera app.Vine s website will live on as an archive of old videos, and Twitter is telling users that today is the last day to download their videos.Vine users — comedians, musicians and others who in some cases had amassed millions of followers — were starting to defect to other services.Vine Camera users can connect their Vine and Twitter accounts so followers can find them on Twitter.

If the cold winter nights are making you lose sleep, a heated mattress pad or electric blanket are just what you need.Here are some hot recommendations.First off, after 40 hours of research and testing, Courtney Schley at The Sweethome suggests you re better off with a heated mattress pad instead of an electric blanket.Which isn t too surprising considering heated pads are more efficient at warming your body, and your bedding helps insulate the heat they provide.If you re looking to buy, The Sweethome recommends you go with one of two models from Sunbeam, particularly the Premium Quilted and standard Quilted models.If you prefer electric blankets, The Sweethome says Sunbeam takes the cake in that area too with their Velvet Plush blanket.

Nintendo has announced that its new Switch console, an effort by the Japanese company to regain lost ground in the console wars, will go on sale on March 3 at a cost of £279.99.The Switch is a hybrid between handheld and home consoles that will allow gamers to play on the go as well as on their television.After first being unveiled in October, Nintendo revealed more details about the console at a much-anticipated event on Friday, including news of a new online gaming network.At an hour-long event in Japan, Nintendo revealed a roster of new games including a brand new Mario title, Super Mario Odyssey, set to be released at the end of the year.There will also be multiplayer games that take advantage of the Switch's innovative Joy-Con controllers.Other franchises such as FIFA, Minecraft and NBA 2K17 will come to the Switch, as will Skyrim and Fire Emblem Warriors.

The veteran game company, while still enjoying relative success in the handheld market despite the ubiquity of smartphones and tablets, really struggled to drum up interest in its last home gaming machine, the dual-screen Wii U.Mixed marketing messaging and a lack of games meant the Wii U never got anywhere close to reaching its potential – let alone the lofty sales figures of its predecessor, the motion-focussed Wii.Going on our first hands-on testing we can say the answer is a fairly comfortable "yes", despite higher than expected pricing – provided that Nintendo can deliver a compelling online offering.In fine Nintendo tradition if you can call the gaming equivalent of iconoclasm 'tradition' , it s done away with the concept of one fixed box sat under your telly with the Switch.Instead, it exists in two distinct states: firstly as a portable tablet device with a built-in kickstand, and secondly docked in a base that connects to your TV.Sure, it s not going to ditch its family-friendly appeal, but it knows it has to win over the older, so-called 'hardcore' gamer reared on a diet of sci-fi shooters.

Tidigare i veckan kunde Breakit rapportera att fintechjätten Izettle tagit ett lån på närmare en halv miljard kronor.Samtidigt som pengarna flödar in i bolaget tappar man dock en tongivande figur som jobbat nära vd:n Jacob de Geer.Björn Lindgren var i fyra år kommersiell chef på bolaget och blev för drygt ett år sedan affärsutvecklingschef.Han har bland annat varit en nyckelperson för bolagets expansion inom EU och i Latinamerika.Efter väldigt mycket resande i och med att jag ansvarat för lansering och uppbyggnad på 12 marknader under majoriteten av mina 5,5 års tid på iZettle var det helt naturligt för mig att gå vidare.Att blicka tillbaka på den kommersiella lanseringen sommaren 2011 som var grymt lyckad och inse vad lite vi visste då och nu konstatera att vi 5,5 år senare är över 400 anställda och värderade till över 500 miljoner dollar kan göra vem som helst mycket stolt , skriver Björn Lindgren i ett mejl till Breakit.

LG har publicerat en aptitretare på YouTube för kommande flaggskeppet G6.I videon frågar LG olika personer vad de är ute efter i en ny mobil – en slags önskelista.Det verkar osannolikt att LG skulle ta upp just dessa punkter utan att G6 erbjuder dem, så klippet kan ses som en tydlig indikation på telefonens karaktär.Vi vet redan att G7 utrustats med en 5,7-tumsskärm med 2880 x 1440 pixlar, om Korea Herald inte är ute och cyklar.Efter aptitretaren är det vidare troligt att telefonen erbjuder IP-klassning, en slimmad konstruktion som klassikern G2?, ett greppvänligt chassi, dubbla bakre kameror, samt eventuellt någon typ av extra tålig skärm.

President-elect Trump s favorite general, retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, heads to Capitol Hill today for his Secretary of Defense confirmation hearing.But Mattis is less a bloodthirsty, cigar-chomping caricature than he is a conventional Washington defense intellectual—one whose views on defense and foreign policy are significantly out of stepped with Trump s own.Trump s penchant for changing his mind, and his selection of candidates with widely divergent views for his nascent national security cabinet, means that it s not clear who will ultimately win out on important issues.Under the Trump administration, for the first time, men and women who weren t even born on 9/11 will be eligible to serve in the war that it launched.In fact, US Central Command sent 300 Marines to Helmand province to fight earlier this month.Schroden says the attacks on capitals are worrying because they likely represent the next stage of a Taliban strategy to project power from rural areas into to urban ones.

Uber has entered what s being touted as a first partnership of its kind with U.K. soccer behemoth Manchester United, a deal that will usher in a number of initiatives for fans domestically and in dozens of countries around the world.Fans attending games at the club s Old Trafford stadium will have a dedicated Uber zone for pickups and drop-offs, similar to Uber s agreements with many other sports teams around the world, from New York to Washington DC to Rio de Janeiro.That Uber has teamed up with one of the world s biggest soccer teams is nothing unusual in itself, but the partnership extends far beyond that and will involve global campaigns creating exclusive experiences for Uber riders and drivers around the world, according to a statement.Details of what this will actually entail remain scant, but Uber says that all will be revealed shortly.Over the next several weeks, we ll be revealing more details on what specific experiences Manchester United fans can expect to see in their home country, said Amy Friedlander Hoffman, head of business development and experiential marketing, in a press release.As Uber s first global sports partner, Manchester United will serve up behind-the-scenes content to fans in more than 30 countries, including various experiences and interactive campaigns.

Internet-based communications services such as Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Google Duo, Apple iMessage, or Viber offer a host of advantages over the old-fashioned telephone -- including, for their operators, exemption from the European Union's strict telecommunications privacy rules.The European Commission wants to change that, and on Tuesday proposed new legislation to protect consumers' online privacy.The move is no surprise: An early draft of the Proposal for a Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications leaked in December.Smartphone apps such as Skype and WhatsApp replicate the voice calling and text-messaging features of older phones, but don't fall under existing EU communications privacy legislation because they are data services that run over the top of an internet connection, rather than native functions of the network like phone calls and SMS.The current rules were written in 2002, before smartphones became widely available.The Commission is seeking to level the playing field by bringing such apps under the same regulatory umbrella.

New rules proposed by the European Union on Tuesday stand to change the way Google, Facebook and other digital media companies and ad technology firms collect consumer data.The updates, aimed at increasing and streamlining digital privacy protections for consumers across the European Union, would affect electronic communications services beyond traditional telecommunications operators and extend to email and messaging services such as Facebook Messenger, Gmail, iMessage, Skype and WhatsApp.Consumer consent will be required access to user devices and online behavior tracking from text messages, emails, and voice calls for use in ad targeting.Without user consent, metadata such as the time and location of a call will need to be deleted or anonymized, unless it is used for billing or other similar purposes.The Commission stressed that the new rules will not prohibit advertising, or the possibility for websites to use cookies or other technologies for tracking user behaviour .Yet, companies must get consent from consumers to access data on their devices or track online behaviors.

When I joined my current company Acorns in September 2016, I came with a plan.As I do with any previous jobs, I am eager to contribute and learn.But this time, I also tasked myself of something both challenging and exciting: My goal for the first 90 days is to take the initiative to establish an growth experimentation process, promote a growth culture, and demonstrate enough results to get buy-in from the organization.Now 90 days passed, how did I do?
