Alabama is launching a pilot program this year that will allow residents to more “securely” file their taxes by using an app that verifies their identity with a selfie.It’s a time of year in which they can buy or sell Americans’ personal information that’s then used to fraudulently file taxes and collect the refunds.In 2013, the U.S. government paid out $5.8 billion in fraudulent returns and it has already lost $30 million this year in a hacker orchestrated student loan scam.So, it makes sense that Alabama wants to try out this new system to help prevent those crimes from occurring.The app that has been chosen for the flagship program is called eID and it asks users to verify their phone number, scan the barcode on the back of their driver’s license, scan the front of the license and take a moving panorama selfie.The selfie is then compared to the state’s database and your app is activated.

I höst kommer GM-märket Cadillac att lansera en CT6 med ”Super Cruise” – en semi-autonom funktion som enligt tillverkaren är ”industrins första äkta handsfree-teknologi för körning”.Tidigare krävde inte Teslas system att föraren höll händerna på ratten när bilen körde autonomt.Dock finns det säkerhetssystem som hindrar föraren från att lämna stolen.I Super Cruise sitter en förarriktad kamera på ovansidan av rattstången.– När vi utvecklade Super Cruise så visste vi att det var viktigt att hålla förarens fokus.Det är därför vi har lagt till en förar-uppmärksamhets funktion, för att insistera på övervakning, säger Barry Walkup, ansvarig för Super Cruise.

A disturbing new video has emerged showing the bloody outcome after a United passenger was savagely dragged off his overbooked flight after refusing to give up his seat to a United employee on stand-by.The video shows the man gripping the curtain at the back of the plane, repeating “I have to go home,” and “just kill me.”Passenger Audra Bridges, who uploaded an earlier video of the incident to Facebook, told The Courier-Journal that United initially offered customers $400 and a hotel room if they offered to take a flight the next day at 3pm.Nobody chose to give up the seat that they paid for, so United upped the ante to $800 after passengers boarded, announcing that the flight would not leave until four stand-by United employees had seats.After there were still no takers, a manager allegedly told passengers that a computer would select four passengers to be kicked off the flight.

Eisenhower may never have served as a governor or a senator, but he did manage to win a little conflict known as World War II, as the commander of the Allied forces in Europe.Can you imagine a higher-stakes situation in which to prioritize your daily decisions and tasks?“In every case, not being able to prioritize effectively leads to failure,” says Nicholas Dragon, digital marketing manager at Intermountain Healthcare.If you’re not feeling as victorious as you’d like to be with your content marketing efforts – or you’re struggling to distinguish whether you’re even working on the right content or not – it could all come down to five simple prioritization problems.Address each of the following in your organization, and you’ll finally be able to lead your team out of urgent land and into unimportant territory, where the cool stuff gets produced.“We allowed their problem to become our problem,” he says, “which caused a domino effect with deadlines for all of our other projects.”

The Shadow Brokers, the infamous hacking group that declared its retirement from the circuit, is back with yet another dump of NSA hacking tools and this time it has something to do with US President Donald Trump.The hacking group that first appeared in the summer of 2016 exposing some of NSA's most guarded hacking tools said it is disappointed with Trump and his policies as he is not standing up to be the president they hoped.They accused the 70-year-old of turning his back on people who voted for him.In a blog post detailing their reason in a not so articulate manner, the group said, " Dear President Trump -- Respectfully, what the fuck are you doing?TheShadowBrokers is losing faith in you....It is appearing you are abandoning 'your base', 'the movement', and the people who got you elected."

Oman taloyhtiönsä asioihin vaikuttaa parhaiten ryhtymällä itse hallituksen jäseneksi, tiedottaa SKH-Isännöinti.Osakkailla on taloyhtiössä sijoitettuna huomattava omaisuus, jota pitää hoitaa.Osakkaiden intressit omaa asumistaan kohtaan ovat kuitenkin hyvin erilaiset.Kiinteistöliiton tekemän kyselyn mukaan 75 prosenttia hallituksen jäsenistä on yli 55-vuotiaita, eli jäsenten keski-ikä on varsin korkea."Hämmästyttävän vähän oman omaisuuden arvon turvaaminen kiinnostaa asukkaita", sanoo toimitusjohtaja Markku Kulomäki SKH–Isännöinnistä.Taloyhtiön hallituksen jäseneksi voidaan valita täysi-ikäinen, luonnollinen henkilö.

Apple's Phil Schiller revealed to TechCrunch in a report published on Tuesday that the Mac's user base is nearing 100 million users.To compare, there were 400 million computers running Windows 10 as of September 2016, according to ZDNet, and that figure is likely to be higher today.It's worth noting that Schiller's figure encompasses all Mac computers, some of which could be running older versions of Apple's macOS (or OS X, as Apple named its older operating systems) while Microsoft's figure is specific to Windows 10.There are likely several more computers running older versions of Windows, like Window 7, 8, Vista, and even XP, which could significantly boost the overall Windows user base figure.Schiller also revealed that 80% of its Mac shipments are laptops, like the MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro, while 20% are desktops, including the iMac and Mac Pro.He also mentioned that Apple's MacBook Pro sales have grown 20% year-over-year in the fiscal Q1.Apple's Mac computer business is clearly doing well, as it near a $25 billion run rate, Schiller told TechCrunch.That number brings Apple's Mac business on its own closer to a Fortune 100 status.Still, Microsoft's Windows business is growing, too, especially in the high-end market.More consumers are enticed by Microsoft's high-end Surface laptop/tablet lineup, which lines up with the growing market for laptop/tablet hybrids.Apple doesn't offer a laptop/tablet hybrid that runs a full desktop operating system.

Companies that choose to outsource their IT operations should be careful.Suspected Chinese hackers have been hitting businesses by breaching their third-party IT service providers.Major IT suppliers that specialize in cloud storage, help desk, and application management have become a top target for the hacking group known as APT10, security providers BAE Systems and PwC said in a joint report.That's because these suppliers often have direct access to their client's networks.APT10 has been found stealing intellectual property as part of a global cyberespionage campaign that ramped up last year, PwC said on Monday.The joint report doesn't identify which IT service providers were hit or how many were found breached.

Facebook usually makes a big announcement whenever it adds a feature to its platform, but some users are discovering a mysterious, unannounced rocket ship icon at the top or bottom of their screen (depending on whether it's iOS or Android) that’s left them confused.It turns out that the symbol is Facebook silently testing a new feature that’s essentially a second news feed.It’s made up of the usual posts, articles, photos, and videos, except these will come from sources you haven’t explicitly liked, such as Facebook Pages and posts from news media organizations.This alternative news feed isn’t just showing random content; Facebook believes it will be relevant to your interests.Items will come from Pages similar to those you’ve already liked, along with anything that’s proving popular with your friends/groups.It seems that geographical location also plays a part in what appears on the alternative feed.

It’s becoming more and more apparent that Apple is dead set on winning a Netflix-sized place in our living rooms.The word from Recode is that Apple has approached three networks – HBO, Showtime and Starz – with a view to neatly rolling them into a single premium package to sell to subscribers.The bundle of channels could be available via iOS devices and its Apple TV box.Apple already sells the trio of channels individually to Apple TV subscribers, but a one-size-fits-all package at a reasonable price could make its service a much more accessible and appealing prospect – particularly since most pay TV operators usually demand a basic level of subscription before they will offer bonus bundles.There’s no news of Apple securing a deal with any of the networks it’s said to have approached just yet, but it’s typical of Apple to keep schtum until the eleventh hour.It’s not the first time we’ve suspected Apple of wanting to beat Netflix at its own game.

Elon Musk suggested Friday that when SpaceX does its first demonstration flight of the Falcon Heavy large payload rocket later this year, it might also include an attempt to return the upper stage back to Earth.Ultimately, the goal is to make sure the upper stage on the Falcon Heavy is reusable, which is part of SpaceX’s plan to make Mars a viable target for repeat, return commercial spaceflight.The Falcon Heavy test, which has been scheduled for some time now, is set for “late summer,” according to Musk.This is in keeping with the new 2017 timing, adjusted from late last year following delays resulting from SpaceX’s pre-flight launch pad explosion of a Falcon 9 rocket last September.SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy is a heavy-lift rocket that would open up a whole new group of potential customers for the private launch provider.Falcon Heavy consists of three Falcon 9 cores at its center, which are made up of 27 Merlin engines, with a projected output of 5 million pounds of thrust.
