p The Circle, a film adaptation of the best-selling novel by David Eggers about a mega-Silicon Valley company that has sinister plans to control the world, opened recently to tepid reviews and unimpressive box office.That shouldn’t obscure the fact that the issues it attempts to address—and which the novel brilliantly took on—are ones that need to be dealt with, urgently.What are the implications for rights, freedoms, and privacy when the desiderata of our digital incarnations are channeled through only handful of massive private companies who want to use our data not just to reduce the frictions of everyday life but to augment their own bottom lines?While the fate of the Trump administration certainly matters, it may shape the world much less decisively in the long-term than the tectonic changes rapidly altering the digital landscape.As the media attention has veered from whether Congress and the White House would manage to repeal and replace Obamacare (spoiler: they did not) to grading Trump’s 100 days, three things happened that received considerably less play and will have considerably more impact.At the end of March, both the Senate and the House voted to roll back broadband privacy regulations that had been passed by the Federal Communications Commission in 2016.

p CeeLo Green has been uber-productive lately, and now’s your chance to hear his latest, a remix of Childish Gambino’s “Redbone”.CeeLo Green is one of music’s most enigmatic characters, someone who is as likely to drop dozens of lyrics about his favorite MCs as he is to show up to the Grammys covered in gold.So when he sends you a text message of a new song at 2 a.m., you are not shocked — you are excited.That is how CeeLo’s remix of Childish Gambino’s infectious Redbone ended up at Digital Trends — and it’s now being shared with the world.In the remix, Green replaces Gambino’s soulful, paranoid musings of staying awake with an arresting proclamation of love and devotion.It’s one of the rare remakes where you can hear how the original artist was influenced by the one remaking the song.

The IT giants were tricked into paying millions to a scammer who impersonated a major Taiwanese electronics supplier, prosecutors sayGoogle and Facebook have acknowledged they were tricked out of more than $100 million (£77m) in a sophisticated phishing scam, in a case that highlights the growing sophistication of online fraud.In late March the US justice department said it had charged a Lithuanian man named Evaldas Rimasauskas, 48, with impersonating Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Quanta Computer in order to target two US technology companies, who weren’t named in the original indictment.An investigation by Fortune has now indicated the companies involved were Google and Facebook, who are amongst Quanta’s clients, along with Apple and others.Rimasauskas’ elaborate fraud, conducted between 2013 and 2015, allegedly involved establishing bank accounts in Latvia and Cyprus in Quanta’s name and tricking Facebook and Google into sending funds to those accounts by means of false invoices.Both Google and Facebook regularly conducted multimillion-dollar transactions with Quanta, the Justice Department said.

Tietoturvafirma McAfeen perustaja John McAfee on antanut ennakkotietoja "maailman ensimmäisestä todella yksityisestä älypuhelimesta".Hänen mukaansa se on parhaiten suojattu puhelin hakkereita vastaan koko maailmassa.MGT:n valmistaman "The John McAfee Privacy Phonen" erikoisuutena on siirtyminen turvasoftasta mekaanisiin ratkaisuihin.Newsweekille antamassaan haastattelussa McAfee kertoo, että puhelimessa on mukana kytkimiä, joilla voi fyysisesti eristää muun muassa akun, wlan-antennin, kameran ja mikrofonin.McAfeen mukaan puhelin ei yhdistä esimerkiksi tiedustelupalveluiden käyttämiin tukiasemana esiintyviin salakuuntelulaitteisiin ja imsi-kaappareihin.Mukana on myös verkkohakujen anonymisointiin tarkoitettu softa.

But the 1994 New Yorker cartoon of a dog sitting behind a desktop—“On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog”—only gets better with time.Just beyond every gently filtered Instagram frame of a perfectly prepared smoothie bowl is inevitably another plate covered in straw wrappers, half masticated crusts, and smudges of crumb-specked ketchup.We live in a world of our own outtakes.Lately though, we’ve begun to see what happens when that expertly curated alternate reality crosses over into the real one—when, for instance, a larger than life social media personality suddenly becomes President of the United States and realizes a little too late that actually doing the job is harder than he thought.Or when a horde of rich millennials shells out thousands of dollars a piece to attend a luxury music festival promoted by all their favorite Instagram influencers, only to arrive in the Bahamas and find what one festival-goer called “a disaster tent city,” instead.The social media-fueled endeavor, co-founded by rapper Ja Rule and his tech entrepreneur partner Billy McFarland, promised people “two transformative weekends” on a private island in the Bahamas, with “the best in food, art, music, and adventure,” and, if the promo videos were any indication, models like Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski sunbathing in skimpy bikinis.

No longer will we need to describe a brand experience or show a two-dimensional video, VR provides a fully immersive audience and brand experience, which can help drive significant engagement.With audiences becoming overloaded by marketing messages on multiple platforms, VR gives users no choice but to completely immerse themselves into the content, resulting in fewer distractions and stronger emotions.And while many brands are now looking to incorporate VR into their marketing campaigns, not all of them are getting it right.Here are four campaigns that nail the VR experience and highlight its potential.TOMS shoes acknowledged this sentiment and developed the TOMS 360-degree Virtual Giving Trip campaign.With every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS also gives a new pair to a child in need.

We’ve polluted this planet to the point that it might actually be on an irreversible path towards cataclysm.As if that wasn’t enough, scientists are now warning that humans continue to negatively impact the environment even after death thanks to our habit of piling corpses in specifically defined areas.Yes, even your body becomes just another piece of human litter after you push off from this coil.The new research, which was revealed during a meeting of the European Geosciences Union this week, suggests that civilization’s desire to place human remains primarily in cemeteries means the soil in those areas has huge concentrations of certain elements.The disproportionate distribution of decomposing bodies leaves long-lasting effects on the soil in those places, and when graveyards are repurposed many years later it can mean the ground itself is unusable for agriculture or even planting trees.On top of that, people with dental fillings containing mercury and permanent implants due to bone repairs and other medical needs add even more junk to the soil when they land six feet under.

It is no secret that Samsung still wants to salvage what little is left of the Galaxy Note 7’s reputation.Whether that’s a wise move or not is something we’ll leave to the Korean OEM to find out.Also not surprising is the fact that this refurbished model has reportedly been seen at the Wi-Fi Alliance for certification.That just means its arrival is coming soon.What is surprising, however, is to see the original Galaxy Note 7 making that same appearance and with the same certification as the refurbished model.The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will have a model number of SM-N935, based on this Wi-Fi Alliance entry.

There’s a memorable gag from the (unfortunately revived) Arrested Development that goes like this: A character sees a brown paper bag labeled “dead dove, do not eat,” opens the bag anyway, reacts in disgust, and then remarks, “I don’t know what I expected.” It’s a pretty good approximation of how the bone hurting juice anti-meme that exploded in popularity over the weekend functions.All you need to know is that this extremely fictional beverage tastes good, and it makes your bones hurt.What did you think “bone hurting juice” would do?According to the internet ephemera scholars at Know Your Meme, the first instance of “bone hurting juice” was an edit of the Sweet Jesus Pooh meme which was added to Facebook page Fun Silly Drawings for Fun Silly People Haha, one of the many “weird Facebook” pages that traffics in thickly layered irony and deep historical knowledge of internet humor.Though that post dates back to July, Tumblr latched onto the phrase this weekend for reasons unknowable.Given the site’s predilection for bone-related jokes (such as the fictional skeleton war or the not-entirely-fictional bone stealing witch), Tumblr provided an ideal environment for bone hurting juice to enter mass production.
