Autopilot update cuts prangs by 40 per cent, we're toldThe US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation into a fatal Tesla crash last year has determined that the car manufacturer should face no further action and has improved safety considerably.The investigation was launched after Joshua Brown, a 40-year-old ex-Navy SEAL, slammed into the side of a tractor trailer at over 70mph while using the car's autopilot system.Brown was killed instantly, but the crash raised concerns that drivers were putting too much trust in the car's autonomous driving features."A safety-related defect trend has not been identified at this time and further examination of this issue does not appear to be warranted.Accordingly, this investigation is closed," the report PDF concludes.

Den nya modellen av enkortsdatorn Raspberry Pi är mycket mindre och billigare än de senaste versionerna, men ändå förväntar sig dess skapare Eben Upton inte att modellen kommer att sälja slut i första taget.För att kunna använda sig av datorn måste kunderna även först ta fram en produkt som har en port till datorn på kretskortet, något som Upton tror tar tid.Compute Module 3 använder sig, precis som Raspberry Pi 3, av en fyrkärnig 64-bit Broadcom BCM2837-processor och har 1 GB ram, men är enbart hälften så stor.Skillnaden i storlek beror mycket på att den nya datorn saknar Ethernet, USB, Wif-fi och uttag för SD-kort.I stället skickas alla signaler från de borttagna portarna via en kantkontakt som passar in i ett Sopdimm-uttag, likt de som används vid minnesuppgraderingar på laptops, vilket låter produktdesigners själva bestämma vilka portar de vill använda sig av och vilka funktioner som de klarar sig utan.Den här valfriheten bidrar till att datorn kan användas till en rad olika projekt som robotar eller industrimaskiner.

Some messages sent through WhatsApp can be intercepted and read thanks to a bug in the app, suggests research.The bug arises because of the way WhatsApp encrypts the messages sent via its service.Security expert Thomas Boelter found that eavesdropping was possible when circumstances called for encryption keys to be reissued.Mr Boelter told WhatsApp owner Facebook about the issue in April 2016 but it said it was not working on a fix.The response he received said that what he had discovered was expected behaviour.The bug crops up in situations when encryption keys used to scramble messages have to be reissued and resent.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp encrypts messages that its 1 billion users send to one another, but a UC Berkeley cryptography and security researcher claims the app has a bug that can be exploited to read these messages.The researcher, Tobias Boelter, pointed out the vulnerability in his blog last April and The Guardian verified it still exists.Privacy advocates, the media outlet said, warned it could be used by government agencies as a backdoor to read the encrypted messages of WhatsApp users.The company on Friday denied this claim.When a person sends out a WhatsApp message it s encrypted with a security key.But if the recipient doesn t get the message because he or she is offline, an attacker can intercept the undelivered messages by re-encrypting them with a new security key, Boelter explained in his blog.A WhatsApp user is only aware that the key was changed if they chose to get security notifications by enabling the alerts under the app s settings.If WhatsApp is asked by a government agency to disclose its messaging records, it can effectively grant access due to the change in keys, Boelter told The Guardian.But WhatsApp denies this is true.The Guardian posted a story this morning claiming that an intentional design decision in WhatsApp that prevents people from losing millions of messages is a backdoor allowing governments to force WhatsApp to decrypt message streams.

Det handlar om en marknadsplats som kommer att erbjuda företag möjligheten att hyra in temporär personal, skriver Tech in Asia.Ushift kommer att rikta sig mot Sydostasien, med initial lansering i Singapore den 16 januari.Satsningen i regionen sker mot bakgrund av en uppfattning om att de befintliga rekryteringsprocesserna där är bristfälliga.Sydostasiatiska företag som är verksamma i branscher som stundtals kräver extra personal sköter i dag sina anställningar genom antingen Facebook eller muntlig rekommendation, skriver tekniksajten.Anmärkningsvärt i det här sammanhanget är att Rocket Internet med Ushift väljer att lansera ett helt nytt koncept på egen hand.Bolaget är vanligtvis känt för att ha som sin affärsidé att kopiera och därefter applicera tidigare framgångsrika koncept på övriga marknader.
