Caption: BOSEBose gets flack from audiophiles for being a little pricey for what you get, but for many people the QuietComfort 25 and QuietComfort 20 headphones are still the undisputed noise-cancelling kings.Previously, Bose s noise-cancelling magic has only been available in wired form, in the QC25 and QC20.They rely on Bluetooth for connectivity, which means you can expect some loss in sound quality when streaming tunes from your phone or laptop to the headsets, but the noise cancellation shouldn t be affected.The latter, by the way, have adopted the increasingly popular wrap-around, skinny-neck-brace form, while the over-ears look like the Bose you re already familiar with.Voice prompts control caller ID, and dual-mics in each headset should make for clearer hands-free phone calls.The QC35 are available now for $350, a $50 premium over their wired counterparts, while the QC30 will show up in September for $300, which is what you ll pay for the QC20s.
Security researchers are warning about the continuing spread of Hummer, a powerful trojan that roots handsets, downloads pornographic applications, and displays pop-up ads at random intervals.Hummer first came up on the logs of Cheetah Mobile's security team in August 2014, but spent eight months in obscurity before starting to blow up.By March of this year, 1.4 million handsets were infected on a given day and many users were powerless to get rid of it."If the virus developer were able to make $0.50 USD the average cost of getting a new installation every time the virus installed an application on a smartphone, the group behind this trojan family would be able to make over $500,000 USD daily," the company said in a blog post.The problem lies in the rooting capabilities of the malware.With the most recent iterations of the Hummer code, there are 18 separate software tools for rooting a handset once the code has been downloaded.
A prolific piece of Trojan smartphone malware which installs malicious apps, games, and continually pushes pop-up adverts onto victim's phones is making its creators as much as $500,000 per day.Hummer was first discovered by the Cheetah Mobile Security Research Lab in 2014, but the malware initially lay dormant for many months.However, a blog post by the security researchers details how Hummer started infecting hundreds of thousands of phones in summer last year, before exploding into 2016.Every time the Trojan installs a new application on the infected devices, it's thought the developers make $0.50.While that may sound like a small amount, the proliferation of Hummer means its creators make big bucks."If the virus developer were able to make $0.50 USD the average cost of getting a new installation every time the virus installed an application on a smartphone, the group behind this trojan family would be able to make over $500,000 USD daily," say researchers.

Hummer Trojan-managed fisheries there is at least $ 500 000 per day. raging in the world of Android malware Hummer has made known to the world record of its kind: it has been the victim of at least one million people, and its creators have earned at least half a million dollars a day, writes ZDNet. Hummer install a Trojan for smartphones contaminated applications, games, and consistently the pop-up pop-up ads. Lobster was first spotted by Cheetah Mobile Security Research Lab in 2014, but the malware was created reportedly already several months earlier. As early as last summer, it polluted the hundreds of thousands of phones, but the real momentum until it reached this summer. Every time the trojan installs a new application to your device, it will send the developers a half dollars.
The rapidly spreading Hummer Trojan installs unwanted apps, uses up bandwidth and can t be removedAn Android malware family originating in China has spread to become the top mobile phone Trojan, infecting more than 1.4 million devices daily at its peak, according to security researchers.The Hummer family of Trojans, a type of malware that spreads by concealing its true nature, infected up to 63,000 devices per day during the first half of this year, according to Cheetah Mobile Security Research Lab.The firm estimated that if the virus developers were able to make 50 cents 38 pence for each new installation on a smartphone, the group would have taken in an average of $500,000 £376,000 per day during the period.The company found 12 Internet addresses housing control servers used to issue commands to the Trojan, some of them linked to email accounts in mainland China, and this and other evidence led Cheetah to conclude that the malware s developers are linked to the Chinese Internet underworld.India has the most infections, followed by Indonesia, Turkey and China, but the US and European countries including Germany, Spain and Italy have also seen thousands of infections, Cheetah said.
The malware, thought to originate in China, generates £232,000 per month in counterfeit ad revenuesInfections of an Android malware family thought to have been developed in China have recently soared and now controls around 10 million devices, according to cybersecurity researchers.Detections of Android devices attacked by the malware, known under names including HummingBad, Hummer and Shedun, jumped by more than three times in March and again by a factor of six over the past month, according to security firm Lookout. We believe this is attributable to the authors building new functionality or distributing the malware in new ways, the company said in an advisory.HummingBad infected up to 63,000 devices per day during the first half of this year, Cheetah Mobile Security Research Lab said earlier this month.The malware, which is attached to infected versions of Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and Okta s enterprise single sign-on app, installs a rootkit that allows it to remain in place even after a factory reset, Lookout said.
For decades in the auto industry, the top tier of the luxury market has been owned by three brands: Mercedes, BMW, and Lexus.In the past ten years, Audi has stormed that mountain and threatened to become a fourth "tier one" brand.But what about the Detroit car makers' own luxury brands — the ones that defined the high-life in the USA before the Germans and the Japanese luxury marques began their ascent?They've struggled.GM's Cadillac has spent the better part of ten years taking aim at BMW's performance mantle, while Ford's Lincoln was lost in the wilderness.Both brands enjoyed a strong sales period in the late 1990s and early 2000s, on the backs of the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator, hulking full-size SUVs that ran into trouble when gas prices spiked after the financial crisis.Ford seriously debated killing off Lincoln when Alan Mulally was running the company; only the efforts of now-CEO Mark Fields saved the brand.Cadillac wasn't under a similar threat, although obvious questions were raised when GM was heading into bankruptcy in 2009 and shedding brands such as Hummer, Saab, and Pontiac.Resources behind the brandsBut GM and Ford have put significant resources behind both Cadillac and Lincoln, and both luxury divisions are now producing their best cars and crossover SUVs in years.Cadillac is now operating under the banner of its "Dare Greatly" ad campaign, with its sales and marketing offices moved to New York City from Detroit to be closer the to the pulse of the global luxury market.Ford is stressing "Quiet Luxury" and continues to call Detroit Dearborn, actually home, but the brand has been responsible for producing some of the most memorable cars ads in recent memory, staring Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey and his slightly trippy musings, and for the past two years has come to the New York auto show with spectacular concept cars.Better vehicles — especially crossoversBoth brands' lineups of vehicles are improving.Rather, there are aggressive, high-performance sedans and coupes for Caddy, along with a growing portfolio of crossovers.
It may be my country of birth, but tackling British roads after living - and driving - for some years in the US takes some mental readjustment, doubly so when you're straight off the plane and into a £191,190 $249k car.It looks, for want of a better word, regal, especially in Marlin Blue.Plant your right foot and the 6.0-liter engine ponders a scant moment, the eight-speed automatic slurs swiftly down a cog or two, and then the car simply hurls itself forward.Toggle the air suspension into Sport mode and, along with the all-wheel drive, it just grips and grips.My resolve - weakened already with the knowledge of just how weak my credit rating would be were I be forced to repay the cost of a crash - gave out before the car's adhesion did.I've driven the higher-tuned V8 S in the Continental GT and it's a more eager engine, but the W12 suits the Flying Spur's character.

MuleSoft, a business-software unicorn, has filed papers for an initial public offering of its stock, according to a new regulatory prospectus that details the San Francisco startup s plans to raise $100 million through the IPO.The filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission didn t specify a price per share for the first time sale of the company s shares.MuleSoft provides software that can stitch together an array of business apps and data sources that normally can t easily sync up and connect.Change everything, is how MuleSoft touts its technology in the prospectus.Founded in 2006, MuleSoft has raised an estimated $259 million in venture capital financing.MuleSoft lists 13 investors on its website.Among the notable backers: San Jose-based Cisco Systems, Santa Clara-based ServiceNow, San Francisco-based Salesforce and San Francisco-based Hummer Winblad Venture Partners.The company s valuation is believed to be $1.5 billion.In the IPO filing with the SEC, the company noted that it has produced red ink since it was founded.We have incurred net losses in each period since our inception, the company stated in the prospectus.Plus, the red ink could persist, the company warned investors: We cannot assure you that we will achieve profitability in the future or that, if we do become profitable, we will be able to sustain profitability.During 2016, Mulesoft lost $59 million on revenue of $187.7 million, the IPO prospectus showed.

A piece of tragic history is up for sale — the BMW rapper Tupac Shakur was murdered in is selling for $1.5 million.Shakur died 20 years ago after being shot four times while the BMW was stopped at a red light in Las Vegas, Nevada.At the time, the BMW belonged to Suge Knight, the co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records.Knight posted Shakur's $1.4 million bail in October 1995 under the condition Shakur would sign with Death Row.Shakur did and then released his 1996 double album "All Eyez on Me" — his biggest release and the last before his death.The muder remains unsolved.Shakur was shot and killed in the BMW on September 7, 1996.Las Vegas police impounded the car and later auctioned it off, TMZ reports.The car has changed many hands since then and is now up for sale by Moments in Time, a memorabilia dealer.Tupac's final vehicle purchase, a Hummer H1, sold for more than $300,000 at auction May of last year, CNN reported at the time.Here's a closer look at the car: View As:
Over the past five decades, Lamborghini and its V12-engined supercars have become pop culture icons.Although the brand has actually released a wide variety of cars ranging from stylish GT cars to a 12-cylinder rival for the Hummer, only five models — the Miura, the Countach, the Diablo, the Murcielago, and the Aventador — have been deemed worthy of being one of Sant'Agata's flagship supercars.For 2017, Lamborghini reworked the supercar to create the new Aventador S with revamped aerodynamics, upgraded suspension, new electronics, and a more powerful engine."The Aventador S is visionary design, cutting-edge technology and driving dynamics in pure harmony, and elevates the concept of super sports cars to a new level."Out back, Lamborghini updated the rear of the Aventador S with a new triple-outlet exhaust system that's 20% lighter than its predecessor.According to Lamborghini, front-end down force has improved by 130% over the outgoing model.
Automakers aren't the only companies unveiling concepts at the Frankfurt Motor Show.Continental, a tire and parts supplier, was there, too, and its latest tire concept could improve traction without any additional effort on the driver's part.ContiAdapt is a system that integrates small compressors into the wheel.It's capable of inflating or deflating the tires, which expands or reduces the tire's contact patch -- the amount of tire that actually touches the ground at any given point -- to suit different weather and driving conditions.Higher pressures mean smaller contact patches.This reduces rolling resistance and can increase efficiency on dry roads.
By combining his passions, he helped the family business bloom.In the 1940s, Sonny Canale, started working at a little flower shop called Lombardi's, where he eventually caught the eye of Marie Russo, whose family owned the flower shop across the street.Sonny bought out his employer in 1957, and two years later, in the ultimate merger of equals, Sonny and Marie married and consolidated their businesses.While their romance is enduring--they are still in the shop every day--the business keeps changing.In 1993 came a new name, Exotic Flowers, followed by new locations, new competition and new technologies."We bought a Hummer a couple years ago just for the reaction," Rick says, explaining how he tried to apply Veeck's marketing philosophy to an independent flower shop.
If Jeremy Clarkson and his fellow mature schoolboy presenters were to create a stunt designed to go viral, it might look something like this.To celebrate the second season of "The Grand Tour", which comes to Amazon Prime on Dec. 8, the company thought it would stun some unsuspecting coffee drinkers.Because clearly they needed an additional jolt.Here was what seemed to be an ordinary New York café, full of people leading their ordinary New York lives.You'd think they might have had a clue that this establishment would be a little different given its name was The Grand Tour Café.At the blare of a siren, all hell was let loose upon them.
That seems to be the case with “blockchain.” While it’s true that not every industry can benefit from a distributed-ledger technology, the trucking industry most certainly can.Trucking is a massive industry that affects virtually every American.Companies hailing from each piece of the trucking supply chain have joined BiTA, including: UPS, Salesforce, McCleod Software, DAT, Don Hummer Trucking and about 1,000 more applicants.In fact, truckers drive more than 29 billion miles with partial or empty truckloads.I know because my co-founder at Transfix, Drew McElroy, is a dyed-in-the-wool trucking devotee.If implemented well, blockchain could be the Holy Grail that makes the entire trucking supply chain more efficient.
