Formula 1 is traditionally regarded as the pinnacle of motorsport, but there's always room for improvement, as Renault proves in its latest concept.Renault introduced the RS 2027 Vision concept at the Shanghai Motor Show.It's meant to show off Renault's idea for Formula 1 in 10 years' time, and while the general shape of the car may be similar to modern F1 cars, there's a whole lot of interesting tech hidden away in there.To keep the focus on the drivers, Renault gave its concept a transparent cockpit and a racer with a transparent helmet, so it's easier to see the personalities behind the wheel.The cockpit alone is a big thing, too, because Formula 1 has been working to improve its driver protection for the last few years, but no design has stuck yet.As it's a concept, it's positively littered with LEDs, but they serve a purpose.

If the automaker's sacred pony car were to morph into a crossover of sorts, it would probably look a bit like this.Chevrolet used its stage at the Shanghai Motor Show to introduce the FNR-X concept, which it calls an "all-purpose sports concept vehicle."Basically, it's a crossover, but it rocks an aggressive look that seems to borrow from Chevrolet's stable of sports cars.Dare I say it, I see a good bit of Camaro in that nose.The interior reminds me a bit of the 'Maro, too.It has a large, hexagonal screen front and center, with a pretty straightforward dash design that has just a bit of pizzazz.

Apple påstås enligt en ny rapport se fram emot ökad försäljning av sin smarta klocka, och ska därför ha kontrakterat en andra tillverkare.Kinesiska Economic Daily News rapporterar att Apple har kontrakterat en ny tillverkare, Compal Electronics, för att producera Apple Watch Series 1 och Series 2.Tidigare har Quanta stått för 100 procent av tillverkningen, men Compal ska nu ta över 20–30 procent.Bakom beslutet ligger bland annat stark försäljning och optimistiska projektioner av kommande försäljning, men Apple påstås också vilja stärka sin förhandlingsposition mot Quanta och reducera risker.Det är en klar ovanlighet att företaget förlitar sig helt på en tillverkare.

It’s bringing back the Supra, one of its most emblematic models, in a bid to rekindle ties with its performance past and once again lure enthusiasts into showrooms.The sports car segment is declining all over the globe, so it’s increasingly difficult for companies to justify spending money on new entrants.That’s why Toyota teamed up with Subaru to design the 86, and the Supra will share its platform with a BMW roadster envisioned as a replacement for the Z4.Brand-specific sheet metal will ensure the Supra looks like a Toyota and the Z4 like a BMW, and each company will give its sports car an engine developed in-house.Fear not, enthusiasts, this won’t be another case of indolent badge-engineering.The Supra nameplate was introduced in 1978, and it was used on four generations of coupes until the final example was produced in 2002.

If you take your fourth-generation iPad into Apple for a repair, the company may replace your tablet with a newer iPad Air 2 instead.According to an internal memo published by MacRumors, Apple started doing this on March 30, right around when the $329 iPad became available for purchase:Starting March 30, iPad 4th generation whole unit repairs may be substituted to iPad Air 2 models.Apple's repair and order management tool will indicate for each repair if a substitution will take place.Please note the substitute part’s color and capacity to ensure the customer understands what their replacement iPad whole unit will be.While you may get a new color and capacity, we also assume that customers with Smart Covers or other accessories for their fourth-generation iPads will need to buy new accessories for the iPad Air 2; we've contacted Apple for clarification and will update if we get a response.

Rather than use heuristics that look for behaviors matching specific rules, Protect has been “trained” using "the DNA markers of 1 billion known bad and 1 billion known good files," said Cylance's vice president of product testing and industry relations, Chad Skipper."I've always been of the opinion that the antivirus industry is a little weird compared to the rest of infosec," said Carl Gottlieb, CTO of the UK-based security consulting firm Cognition."Even if [Cylance products] score well in our tests," said Peter Stelzhammer, co-founder of the testing organization AV-Comparatives, "they 'trust' only their own sponsored test, where they can dictate the methodology."Cylance executives, in turn, have accused some testing companies of running tests that inaccurately represent performance—or of outright "fraud," as one Cylance exec has repeatedly asserted in blog posts and interviews.We've seen our software pirated, put in with an older version on purpose, a lack of updates, and those sorts of things.""Some testers organize their malware testbeds by naming the files by their hashes," the two wrote.

ABT 1.50% was pilloried last week by regulators for, in part, botching its response to a report that certain company defibrillators and pacemakers could be manipulated by hackers.Shares of the health-care giant, which acquired the devices in its purchase of St. Jude Medical Inc., fell 1.9%.For years cyber insurance was overwhelmingly purchased by consumer-facing business—retailers, financial-service providers and hospitals.The St. Jude situation helps explain why manufacturers are now rushing to make sure they are covered.Manufacturers paid $36.9 million in premiums for cyber-specific policies in 2016, according to Advisen Ltd., an insurance consulting firm, based on its sample of over 9,000 mostly U.S. companies.“There’s certainly an increased exposure in the industry overall, especially with more reliance on cloud providers, greater sophistication of hackers globally and increased consumer interactions through social media,” said Daniel Steiner, enterprise risk manager at Kimberly-Clark Corp. , the maker of Kleenex tissues and Huggies diapers.

Everything we do is terrible, says the trope.We deify horrible frat-boy brogrammer assholes, while funding, and celebrating, morally bankrupt apps that exist to stand in for their mothers and/or servants.We cater to the rich and privileged urban elite, while the poor masses fall further behind.And the thing is, you can, in isolation, actually make a pretty good case that the tech industry is guilty of all of these things.But at the same time, InHerSight, an organization devoted to providing “a powerful and representative picture of what it’s really like for women in the workplace,” reports that tech is rated by its respondents as the best industry for women to work in.But consider the context: specifically, that we live in a world where there are more S 1500 CEOs named John than there are women.

Sam Mobile has just released information on an unreleased Samsung device codenamed Cruiser, otherwise known as the Galaxy S8 Active.The device, with a model number of SM-G892A, will be headed exclusively to the AT network in the US later this year.The site doesn’t have much information on the new device other than its name and model number, but we’ll keep an eye on the interwebs in the weeks to come where we’ll be sure to see it popping up more and more.The site does note that Galaxy S Active devices typically have larger batteries than their regular non-ruggedized counterparts.So if the smallish battery capacities on the S8 and S8 Plus are not getting your juices flowing perhaps the Galaxy S8 Active will.We’ll just have to wait and see what a ruggedized version of the Infinity Display will look like and whether Samsung does something different with buttons.

Uber’s head of public policy and communications, Rachel Whetstone, has quit the troubled cab-hire app less that two years after it poached her from Google.Her departure comes after a string of scandals for Uber, ignited by a tell-all blogpost from a former employee alleging numerous sexual harassment incidents.The company responded by setting up an “urgent investigation” into the claims, but could not stop the tide of bad press: a few weeks later, chief executive, Travis Kalanick, was caught on video in a fiery argument with one of his own drivers over exploitation; one of his former partners told of a trip with senior employees to a Korean “escort/karaoke bar”; and other employees revealed how the company’s “hustle-oriented” culture became a black mark when they looked for work elsewhere.In the midst of the crisis, Uber’s president Jeff Jones also quit, explicitly blaming the company’s corporate culture.“The beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber,” he said at the time, “and I can no longer continue as president of the ride-sharing business.”British Whetstone, who in 2003 was appointed Michael Howard’s chief of staff when he became Conservative leader , and is a friend of both David Cameron and George Osborne, also found herself at the centre of a more localised storm following allegations that she used her contacts to secure an advantageous deal for Uber in London.

Last Friday night, as midnight approached, someone managed to trigger the emergency siren system used by the city of Dallas for tornado warnings and other emergencies.And that someone managed to keep the alarms in action for 95 minutes—even after emergency services workers shut them off.The entire system had to be shut down.Dallas officials initially blamed "a hack" for causing the midnight siren escapade—a statement that was initially interpreted as some sort of network intrusion into Dallas' emergency services computer systems.But in a statement issued yesterday, Dallas City Manager T.C.Broadnax clarified the cause, saying that the “hack” used a radio signal that spoofed the system used to control the siren network.
