It's no secret that Google Chrome is often the culprit behind a slow computer, even if your computer is relatively new.Open enough tabs in Chrome and you can easily eat up all your RAM, which doesn't leave much for other things you might be doing on your computer.One way to check whether Chrome is to blame for slowing down a perfectly good computer is to check your computer's processes.On Macs, that means checking Activity Monitor.For Windows PCs, check the Task Manager.If you're seeing that Chrome is hogging a bunch of your resources like RAM and CPU, you could go one step further and check exactly which tabs, websites, and extensions are causing the biggest slow-downs on your computer.

'I did not have an unclassified FBI connection at home that worked'Former FBI director James Comey was using Gmail for FBI business while overseeing the controversial probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as US Secretary of State.A report from the US Department of Justice found Comey was "insubordinate" in his handling of the investigation while absolving him of political bias over the FBI's decision to clear Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing before reopening the investigation in the heat of the presidential election battle.The 568-page report (PDF) from the DoJ's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) uncovered "numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account to conduct unclassified FBI business".In November 2016, Comey forwarded a proposed post-election message for all FBI employees entitled "Midyear thoughts" from his unclassified FBI account to his personal email account.This document summarised Comey's reasoning for notifying Congress about the reactivation of the Midyear investigation into Clinton.

For months, police across the country have been using a device called a GrayKey to unlock dormant iPhones, using an undisclosed technique to sidestep Apple’s default disk encryption.The devices are currently in use in at least five states and five federal agencies, seen as a breakthrough in collecting evidence from encrypted devices.But according to a new Reuters report, Apple is planning to release a new feature to iOS that would make those devices useless in the majority of cases, potentially sparking a return to the encryption standoff between law enforcement and device manufacturers.Under the new feature, iPhones will cut off all communication through the USB port if they have not been unlocked in the past hour.Once the hour expires, the USB-C port can only be used to charge the device.The result will give police an extremely short window of time to deploy GrayKey devices successfully.

“Disabled athletes are rarely seen in the media in comparison with non-disabled ones,” Samo says.“The Paralympic Games gets relatively little attention – probably 5% of what the Olympic Games gets.I wanted to show different kinds of sports people, to highlight them and tell their often amazing life stories.”Slovenian photographer Samo has focused on sport throughout a busy career, which began in 1999.A keen sportsman in his youth who enjoyed ski-jumping, football and tennis, he initially qualified as a mechanical engineer before discovering a fascination for photography.“I'm self-taught as a photographer so learning the best techniques for different sports was challenging but, at the same time, it was really enjoyable.

The great thing about Sony’s new trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is that while it’s (wonderfully) light on specific details about the plot, it’s chock-full of little hints and clues about what we can expect to see in the film.Though his world may look and sound like ours, and others populated by Marvel heroes, there are a number of subtle differences—like the fact that the L train in Into the Spider-Verse’s New York City runs through the 31st Street MTA station (which doesn’t actually exist.)Much like our universe, though, the sewers of Miles’ NYC are also populated by monsters.The dragon-like creature doesn’t have Harry Osborn’s signature glider, but it is sporting a growth from its head that’s reminiscent of the Goblin’s classic hat, and the monster’s overall build is very similar to the character’s appearance in Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.Ultimately, Spider-Man saves Miles from the dragon monster, and when the two have a chance to catch their breath, they realise they both have spider senses that cause a kind of psychic feedback when they’re in close proximity.The first trailer for the movie showed us the Peter Parker/Spider-Man of Miles’ universe is dead fairly early on in the movie, which suggests that this encounter is the very beginning of Miles’ introduction to the existence of multiple universes.

Whenever unencrypted e-mails are sent, however, this protection is undermined.And even with encryption in place, it is still possible to draw conclusions about who is communicating with whom, which should also be confidential, of course.Christoph Sorge and his team developed a web-based software system that protects the communication of lawyers and enterprises from third parties.The Saarbrücken researchers will be presenting their software, "Mavora", at the computer fair Cebit, taking place in Hannover from June 11 to 15 (Hall 27, Stand G75)."Although secure electronic communication systems have been around for a long time, they are hardly ever used in the legal context," Sorge said at the time.In the same year, he founded the SOLE Software GmbH, together with attorney Stephan Ory and Dominik Leibenger, thus offering a technical solution for secure, but also user-friendly communications with clients.

Financial Conduct Authority to probe bank's migrationA city watchdog has launched a stinging attack on TSB chief Paul Pester for portraying "an optimistic view" of its catastrophic IT meltdown in April that prevented 1.9 million customers from using online bank services.Andrew Bailey, head of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), told the Treasury Select Committee the body is investigating TSB's IT migration off ex-parent Lloyds Banking Group's (LBG) systems, along with the Prudential Regulation Authority."We do not normally make this information public, but given the level of public interest, I want to be clear that we will be conducting this work," Bailey wrote in a letter (PDF) published ahead of Pester's second grilling by the committee later today."The FCA has been dissatisfied with TSB's communications with its customers and we have had concerns that TSB was not being open and transparent about the issues experienced," it added."For example, TSB referred to 'the vast majority' of customers being able to access their online accounts, at a time when there was a successful first-time login rate of only 50 per cent on the web channel."

If content creators want to sell pricier monthly content subscriptions, offering stickers, pins, signed photos, or t-shirts can convince fans to pay a higher fee and keep them loyal with a physical connection.That’s why patronage platform Patreon just acquired Kit, a startup building a merchandise logistics backend so creators don’t have to fiddle with spreadsheets and stuff envelopes themselves.Together, they could help Patreon creators develop merch items that fans subscribe to get ahold of, potentially shelling out for $10 or $20 per month tiers rather than basic $1 or $5 online content-only tiers.It paid out $350 million over its first 5 years through 2017, and expects to send creators another $300 million in 2018, while taking a 5 percent cut.90 percent of Kit team, mostly product and engineering talent, will join San Francisco-based Patreon though they’ll stay put in NYC as a satellite office the rest of the year.This human-to-human connection” says Kit co-founder and CEO Camille Hearst.
