The company added that it will contact the affected members to reset their passwords too.According to a report on Vice s Motherboard, a hacker going by the name of Peace is attempting to sell account details, including the emails and partially hidden passwords, of 117 million LinkedIn users on the so-called Dark Web.LinkedIn is also quick to reassure its users that this isn t a fresh hack, though that will be of little comfort.Yesterday, we became aware of an additional set of data that had just been released that claims to be email and hashed password combinations of more than 100 million LinkedIn members from that same theft in 2012.We are taking immediate steps to invalidate the passwords of the accounts impacted, and we will contact those members to reset their passwords.It seems no company or industry is safe from the clutches of hackers, with the likes of Home Depot, Time Warner Cable, Ashley Madison, and SendGrid all suffering in recent times.Motherboard conversed with someone at LeakedSource who claimed that they managed to crack 90 percent of the LinkedIn passwords within three days.Though LinkedIn says it has hashed and salted its stored passwords for several years now, one potential problem of old passwords emerging online is that people often use the same credentials across many services.
While Google s method won t reduce the force of the initial collision, it should stop pedestrians and cyclists from suffering extra harm.Ideally, the adhesive coating on the front portion of the vehicle may be activated on contact and will be able to adhere to the pedestrian nearly instantaneously, states the patent description.This instantaneous or nearly-instantaneous action may help to constrain the movement of the pedestrian, who may be carried on the front end of the vehicle until the driver of the vehicle or the vehicle itself in the case of an autonomous vehicle reacts to the incident and applies the brakes.Citroen, Jaguar, and Nissan all use devices that slightly raise a car s hood in the event of an accident to provide a cushion for impact; and other companies, such as Land Rover and Volvo, have developed outside airbags.Google rolled out the usual statement when asked to comment: We hold patents on a variety of ideas.Some of those ideas later mature into real products and services, some don t.
Enter the Pavlok, a wrist band that delivers a 255 volt shock to the wearer when they violate self-imposed spending limits.The wearable works via an integration with a banking platform for Intelligent Environments, a UK company.Go over that limit, and the system will notify Pavlok, which will dutifully give you an electric shock as punishment.The banking platform itself can work with more than Pavlok, though, and those who don t like the thought of suffering a shock can use Nest for a more subtle sort of discomfort.Spend too much money, for example, and you can set the thermostat to turn the AC down in the summer time, making yourself uncomfortably warm.Said Intelligent Environments director David Webber:With cashless payments like contactless, direct debits, and Apple Pay, it s unsurprising we lose track of spending, so we decided to solve this by enabling smart devices to manage our overspending for us … Both Pavlok and Nest Thermostat are opt-in services so consumers can decide whether to switch them on or not.
Home looks like a cross between a small vase and a large salt shaker, the kind you might find on a Williams-Sonoma wedding registry.You can choose among a variety of colorful shells for its lower-half, and four LED lights on the top blink cheerfully when it s working.And not just that; Google s broader range of services, from Gmail to Calendar to Maps and beyond, helps it know how those things relate to you.I don t feel like my experience is suffering because a lack of Google search integration.One of the last frontiers where you weren t necessarily connected to Google was the home says Dimitri Sirota, founder of privacy management firm BigID.Then again, it also can t know that you re near a grocery store, and set off a voice-reminder that you need to pick up some milk.
As part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update this summer, the Xbox One is being upgraded to support application development.Whenever a system is newly opened up to developers, it's inevitable that it will soon be used to run either Windows 95 or Doom, and it appears that the Xbox One is no exception to this rule.The emulator is very slow, as it's using Dosbox's interpreted mode, wherein the processor is fully emulated in software.Dosbox has a faster dynamic mode that uses the host processor to execute as much code as possible, but the person who made the port, YouTube user vcfan, writes that this feature is currently suffering from some crashes in 64-bit mode.When enabled, vcfan says that the system "flies."Although the Windows 10 store does contain a selection of emulators, almost all of which are used to play pirated games, we'd expect Microsoft to take a somewhat harder line when it comes to the Xbox.
The burden of TB is too great and the need for new treatment too urgent."It is responsible for 1.5 million deaths annually.Drug resistant TB has developed in part due to the lengthy treatment needed, as even standard TB requires six months to treat.The work of the Review has shown that TB has the potential to represent a quarter of anti-microbial resistance deaths by 2050, with an estimated 75 million additional people dying from TB over the next 35 years.Diseases, particularly airborne ones such as TB, do not respect national borders.As with many issues, waiting to act only prolongs the suffering and dramatically increases the costs.
The B2B marketing profession is in danger of losing its newest generation of managers and potential future marketing leaders, new research has revealed.According to the Hays UK Salary & Recruiting Trends 2016, an annual survey of over 20,000 employers and employees in the UK, over half 60 per cent of millennials in marketing anticipate leaving their jobs within the next 12 months and a third 34 per cent expect to leave within six months.Over a quarter 26 per cent of this age group state they wanted to leave their current role due to a lack of future opportunities, suggesting businesses may need to provide more investment in training and clearer communication around progression.More than a third 40 per cent of millennials believe there is no scope for progression within their current organisation and over half 51 per cent feel uncertain or negative about their career prospects.Many marketing functions are already suffering from severe skill shortages in mid-level roles, with 71 per cent of marketers saying they expect to encounter a shortage of suitable applicants this year."While the new wave of younger millennials about to graduate from university will require training and support to transition into the commercial, fast paced marketing world of today, those millennial marketers with several years expertise will be actively considering their future and looking to take the next step, aspiring to leadership roles.
Video games aren t always the kindest form of entertainment for those suffering from disabilities, with limited control schemes, small fonts, and even color choices potentially preventing some prospective players from enjoying the medium.What developers need to realize is that these games do more than just entertain the disabled.And second of all, they provide a social space where, instead of being judged by physical appearance, we re purely judged by the actions that we do and the things that we produce in the game.He was already a fan of the series, but was frustrated that he couldn t complete Uncharted 2 because of a button-mashing sequence near the end.While the game does still make pretty extensive use of button mashing for moving certain objects and some cinematic moments, there is now an option to simply hold down the button instead.The game s camera system was also tweaked to allow for players to primarily use only the left analogue stick, and camera lock-on, which, as we ve previously seen in the third-person shooting of the Grand Theft Auto series, also largely eliminates the need for dual-stick aiming.
A health wearable in development at Michigan State University with collaboration from Bell Labs could provide doctors with a complete and impartial picture of patients suffering from obesity, diabetes or asthma.The wearable, which is called HeadScan, sticks to the patient s shoulders and bounces radio waves off their head.The radio waves can capture all sorts of things, like eating, drinking, coughing, and speaking, which can be valuable information for a doctor to analyse.HeadScan is already a major improvement on weight and size, and Zhang believes it improves on the privacy too: Existing technology often uses cameras and microphones to measure this, which can track your voice as well as others around you.Wearables were cited as one of the most substantially beneficial emerging technologies for medical trials, so we should expect to see wearables like HeadScan adopted by more doctors in the near future.The question, for medical professionals, is how to balance the influx of available information with user privacy and consent, a balance the technology industry has struggled to manage.

John Jameson saw the world through normal eyes until a histoplasmosis fungal infection caused his vision to blur.A follow-up laser surgery to reverse the fungal infection damaged his vision even further, leaving him legally blind.After 40 years of limited vision, however, Jameson now can see again thanks to a breakthrough eye telescope and fine surgical work by Dr. Christopher Shelby of the WK Eye Institute.Developed by Dr. Isaac Lipshitz of VisionCare, the Implantable Miniature Telescope was designed for those suffering from macular degeneration, a common and debilitating eye disease that results when the retina begins to deteriorate.Working along with the cornea, the telescope can enlarge images to approximately 2.2 to 2.7 times their average size.With his vision restored, Jameson now can see things he could only picture in his mind — including his wife, whom he has now seen for the first time.
At least three analysts have cut their rating on Lenovo shares in the last month, as the company prepares to report fourth-quarter results Thursday.The Beijing-based company is suffering a mobile crisis, she wrote.Chief Executive Officer Yang Yuanqing acquired Motorola Mobility in 2014 to cement Lenovo s place among the smartphone elite and provide a new source of growth to offset a declining PC industry.Apple Inc. has captured premium customers with larger iPhones, and Chinese competitors such as Huawei Technologies Co. and Oppo have lifted their games.Share price forecasts for the stock have dropped more than 20 percent since the start of the year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Lenovo completed its deal to buy Motorola from Google in October 2014, eventually paying $2.8 billion for a brand that had failed to keep up with Apple and Samsung Electronics Co. after leading the invention of wireless communications.In smartphones, they haven t been able to gain any traction, said Anand Srinivasan, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.If the financial stress continues due to the tough market conditions, we expect Lenovo will find it difficult to get cheap fixed income financing, which will increase its interest expenses and, in return, enhance its financial stress, analysts at China International Capital Corp. led by Kai Qian wrote in a May 16 report.CK Lu, an analyst at Gartner Inc, in Taipei, says the company must unify its business with little synergy so far between the brands and product lines.In India, set to become the world s second-largest market, Motorola and Lenovo brands are competing with each other in the mid- to lower-end areas of the market.
Colourful Kindles could be on the cardsE Ink, the creator of the displays used on e-readers such as Amazon's Kindle, has developed what it's labelling as the world's first, full-colour electronic paper.The company's new Advanced Colour ePaper – or ACeP – is capable of producing to 32,000 colours using coloured pigments and could usher in a new generation of e-readers.Typically, coloured ePaper displays are produced by placing coloured filters over monochromatic displays, with resolution usually suffering as a result.E Ink claims that ACeP can show a full colour gamut using only coloured pigments, which includes all three primary colours – red, blue and yellow, in addition to purple, green and orange.So far, the company has produced 20-inch ACeP displays boasting 150 pixels per inch, but don't expect to see full-colour e-ink comic books any time soon: the initial target area for the technology will be digital signs for things like shops and advertising boards.For all the latest tech news, follow us on Twitter @IBTimesUKTech
The Bay Area fosters a culture of forward thinkers and new ways to solve problems in our world, including in our food system.The company joins a growing list of game-changing food startups that have launched out of the lab and into the consumer market in just the last few years.We re told milk does a body good, but the dairy industry can be a dirty business, polluting our environment and pumping large amounts of methane into the air — the biggest contributor to global warming.Sure, there are already alternatives to dairy milk, but many of them are problematic — soy is mostly from GMO crops and full of pesticides, almond milk takes up a lot of precious water resources and coconut milk is hard on those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.But peas are plentiful, full of vitamins an extremely good source of vitamin K, manganese, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus and folate, among a long list of other nutrients and GMO-free.The startup has raised $13.6 million from investors and started selling its first four non-dairy milk flavors — original, original unsweetened, vanilla and chocolate — in Whole Foods nationwide in April.
It has been nearly a year since Sony re-introduced The Last Guardian, Fumito Ueda's long-suffering follow-up to PS2 classics Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.The preview details a new gameplay mechanic, in which the human boy character wields a mirrored shield.Back to The Last Guardian's biggest star, Trico is "one of the most striking video game presences in recent years," reads the article, but one who may be as "divisive" as Ico's Yorda, who "irritated as many players as she charmed."pic.twitter.com/pNvJmo8WCZ— Edge @edgeonline May 26, 2016Trico is described as a powerful creature, but one that's timid and nervous in its nature."One area a little later in the demo sees us emerge high up from the wall of a huge cave that holds an underground lake.Ueda says of Trico: "This creature isn't like the cute pets that exist in other games, or an ally that's really useful.
NIAIDOver the next day or so, you may see headlines and reports about a nightmare superbug that has been detected for the first time in the US.So far, the Washington Post reports: The superbug that doctors have been dreading just reached the U.S. And the article starts with: For the first time, researchers have found a person in the United States carrying bacteria resistant to antibiotics of last resort.Upon DNA analysis, researchers determined that the E. coli is resistant to colistin because it carries a colistin resistance gene called mcr-1 on a circular piece of DNA called a plasmid.The discovery of the gene quickly raised concern because of its placement on a plasmid, which bacteria can easily share with their neighbors.And the infected PA woman, who was suffering from a urinary tract infection, had not traveled in the last five months.For now, the case serves mostly to highlight the ongoing crisis of rising antibiotic resistance and furthers the need for better stewardship of old antibiotics and development of new ones.
Google Chrome is fixing a huge pain point for its users.In its next big release, Chrome is removing the keyboard shortcut that made the "backspace" key return to the previous page.This "feature" caused problems for many people who would inadvertently lose a whole bunch of information that they had just entered.For example, if you were filling out a survey or other web form and pressed the backspace key when you weren't actually focused in one of the text boxes, Chrome interpreting the backspace as a "back" button would cause you to lose all of the data you had just entered.Google engineers write that years of user complaints have finally driven them to get rid of the shortcut.Although some hardcore shortcut fans have complained heartily about this move, Google engineers said that the number of people suffering plus the relative ease of switching back make the change worth it."YWe're definitely aware of the frustration that this causes users who have come to rely on the shortcut," a Google product manager, Tyler Odean, writes."However for users who *don't* understand the behavior of the shortcut, which is the majority of users, the loss of data is also super frustrating and they are less equipped to understand or prevent their frustrations."People who like the shortcut can either switch to using other ones like alt left arrow on Windows, command left arrow on Mac or install a Chrome extension that makes backspace go back again.This fix will officially roll out in late July.NOW WATCH: This smart earpiece translates languages as they are spokenLoading video...
