Following a year-and-a-half of testing in a few select regions, the free antivirus software from Kaspersky Lab is now available worldwide.Although it lacks many features of Kaspersky’s paid product, it includes all of the “bare essentials,” such as scanning files, web traffic and email, firewalls for filtering network activity, quarantining malware and monitoring activity of installed apps.Most free antivirus software is either filled with advertisements or expires after a month or so of use.Rather than inundate free users with ads, Kaspersky use the data it collects from free users to improve machine learning across all of its products and platforms.While the global rollout officially began on July 25th, it might be a day or two before you can actually download the free antivirus software.Company founder Eugene Kaspersky explained in a blog post on Tuesday that the software will roll out in waves, with the US and Canada included in the first wave.
This time last year, Nintendo was having a rough go of it.The Wii U was a failing system, the 3DS was aging, and its mobile efforts had yet to fully take off.Now, thanks largely to the Switch, Nintendo has posted sales of $1.38 billion for the three months ending on June 30.This is up 148.6 percent from the same period last year.The Switch launched in March and has been a success for Nintendo.The home console/portable hybrid has shipped more than 4.7 million machines, with 1.97 million of that coming from the last quarter.
The man who brought us The Simpsons is heading to Netflix for a new animated series called Disenchantment—and it already sounds like it’s going to do to fantasy what Futurama did to scifi.Announced this morning by the streaming service, Disenchantment takes viewers to the Kingdom of Dreamland, which is slowly falling apart into rampant disarray as its hard-drinking young princess Bean (voiced by Abbi Jacobson) goes on a series of misadventures with an elf named Elfo (Nat Faxon) and her own personal demon, Luci (Eric Andre).It’s “about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you,” as Groening himself is quoted in a provided press release.So yeah, it definitely feels Futurama-esque in how it’s going to lovingly poke fun at genre tropes.To make it even more Futurama-esque, the series will be animated by Rough Draft Studios, which also worked on Futurama.Even the extended voice cast reads like a list of Futurama greats, with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, and Tress MacNeille all having roles alongside David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.

It’s been described as “the biggest leak in Swedish history”, and it’s easy to see why.Looking to cut costs, in 2015, the Swedish Transport Agency (STA) outsourced the management of its database and IT infrastructure to two companies — IBM in the Czech Republic, and NCR in Serbia.Given the sensitivity of the data, it should have only really been accessed by authorized personnel.But the STA was eager to deploy the system, ostensibly to save money on labor costs, and it bypassed vital security checks that would have otherwise prevented Czech and Serbian techies from working on the system.Per Infosecurity Magazine, the database contained:vehicle registration data from every Swedish citizen, data on all government/military vehicles, the weight capacity of all roads and bridges, names, photos and home addresses of Air Force pilots, police suspects, elite SAS-style operatives and anyone in a witness protection scheme.
Finally we get to see the Galaxy S8 Active from its front and if you were worried about thick bezels, now you can breathe in relief.There are still bezels, mind you, but they’re still considerably less than your standard rugged smartphone.It is going to look like the Galaxy S8 in some aspects and even behave like it.That, however, also means it inherits some of the biggest complaints about Samsung’s flagship, specifically its stubborn Bixby button.Samsung’s “Active” models have had a special hardware button that allowed users to launch any app or action of their choosing.Unfortunately, that’s the first to go in this Galaxy S8 generation.
Apple has always had the upper hand when it comes to the monetization of games on its platform.iPhone users tend to spend more on in-app purchases than Android users — part of the reason why it gets favored when it comes to new game releases.The tide may be turning, however, as news from video game analytics and insights company deltaDNA (via VentureBeat) suggests that both Google and Samsung could be catching up.The data is based on the habits of 1.4 million North America players during June, 2017.It reveals that the average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU) generated by owners of the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, was in the same region as that of iPhone owners.And, in some cases, Android phone users generated even more revenue.

EBay shares were down about 4 percent in initial after-hours trading, after posting second-quarter financial results.But in terms of revenue and earnings per share, the company’s results were in line with expectations.Finance, analysts were forecasting an adjusted 45 cents EPS and revenue of $2.31 billion, which is about the same as the 45 cents per share and the $2.33 billion in revenue that the company posted.It’s the GAAP number that was down significantly, at just 2 cents per share compared to 38 cents per share last year.The company attributes the decline to a “non-cash income tax change of $311 million related to the ongoing realignment of its legal structure.”EBay also revealed gross merchandise volume of $21.5 billion, a measurement of total transactions processed on its platform.
Legal aggro with Apple and BlackBerry contributed to a revenue decline of 11% and a profit plunge of 40% in Qualcomm’s latest quarterlies.As you would expect Qualcomm accentuated the positive, dwelling on data points that exceeded expectations and trying to sound bullish about the Apple litigation.“We delivered better than expected results in our semiconductor business this quarter, which drove EPS above the midpoint of our expectations versus our April updated guidance,” said Steve Mollenkopf, Qualcomm CEO.“Our products and technologies continue to enable the global smartphone industry, and we are expanding into many exciting new product categories, including automotive, mobile computing, networking and IoT.We believe that we hold the high ground with regard to the dispute with Apple, and we have initiated new actions to protect the well-established value of our technologies.”Qualcomm accounted for $940 million refunded to BlackBerry for overpaid royalties and the payment of a $927 million fine imposed by South Korea.
At this point, it seems like Apple might never release a laptop with a touchscreen.The company reverses course all the time — remember when Steve Jobs scoffed at the idea of native third-party apps on the iPhone?— but over the years Apple has never wavered when it comes to rejecting touchscreen laptops.The company’s various arguments do have merit, but it seems somewhat reminiscent of Tim Cook’s arguments against an iPhone phablet back before the iPhone 6 Plus was released.He said that smartphones with large displays carried too many compromises, and Apple wouldn’t release a supersized iPhone if the company was forced to make the same compromises.When it comes to touchscreen laptops, however, Apple is showing no signs of budging.
Amazon is reportedly building its own messaging app called Anytime that will function like WhatsApp, with added extras to make group chats and video chatting way more exciting.According to the Amazon-centric site AFTVNews, Amazon let slip its plans by surveying users to find out which features in a messaging app are most important to them.It also released a list of possible features, which suggest it will go way beyond the duties of your average messaging platform, putting it in direct competition with the likes of Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and WhatsApp.Those possible features range from reaching friends using their name rather than phone number, the ability to order food and split bills in a group chat, challenge friends to games, and video chat with masks and filters.Being an online shopping giant, Amazon inevitably has plans to integrate shopping into Anytime.It’s toying with the idea of allowing users to chat with businesses, make reservations, check orders and even shop via the app.

(Reuters) — Australia on Friday proposed new laws to compel companies such as U.S. social media giant Facebook and device manufacturer Apple to provide security agencies access to encrypted messages.The measures will be the first in an expected wave of global legislation as pressure mounts on technology companies to provide such access after several terror suspects used encrypted applications ahead of attacks.Australia, a staunch U.S. ally, is on heightened alert for attacks by home-grown radicals since 2014 and authorities have said they have thwarted several plots, although Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said law enforcement needed more help.“We need to ensure the internet is not used as a dark place for bad people to hide their criminal activities from the law,” Turnbull told reporters in Sydney.“The reality is, however, that these encrypted messaging applications and voice applications are being used obviously by all of us, but they’re also being used by people who seek to do us harm.”Australia’s proposal will require device manufacturers and technology companies to help its law enforcement agencies intercept and read messages sent by suspects.
Amazon has a successor to its Echo smart speaker in the pipeline and it’ll be designed to take on Apple’s HomePod, according to a new report.The new not-yet-officially-revealed version of the Amazon Echo will slim down compared to the first one, assuming the source is to be believed, and it’ll also be shorter.Despite the shrunken size, the updated model will see many improvements, not the least of which is better microphone tech, more tweeters, and a new chassis material.The information comes from Engadget, which reports that the more premium Amazon Echo model will be the size of three or four Echo Dot models stacked on top of each other.The current version of the Echo is tall and made with a plastic exterior, but the next-generation version will reportedly be shorter with a fabric cover of some type, as well as rounded edges.Notably, the source indicates that Amazon will be making some adjustments to the Echo successor that will help it compete with Apple’s relatively recently unveiled HomePod smart speaker.

Firm needs a new anti-harassment trainer after blowupFrank Artale, managing partner at Ignition Ventures, has resigned at the request of the board following multiple claims of inappropriate behavior.In a statement on Tuesday evening, Ignition said it had received a complaint about Artale on July 5, this year, and had investigated the allegation.The bigwig also had a gripe filed against him in 2016.“We took this serious and near-immediate step in part due to this complaint, combined with a third-party accusation of inappropriate conduct by Mr Artale in 2016,” Ignition, based in Los Altos, California, tweeted.“At that time, we engaged outside counsel and conducted an exhaustive investigation into the event.
