p Update 09/05/2017: People backing-up WhatsApp conversations through iCloud will now benefit from the messages being encrypted by default.WhatsApp has confirmed the backed-up files are encrypted and it is believed the feature was introduced in late 2016 but wasn't spotted until now.WhatsApp has turned on end-to-end encryption across all of its apps, the company has announced.The Facebook-owned app, which has more than one billion monthly active users, has turned on the Signal Protocol, developed by Open Whisper Systems, by default.The open-source private messaging system, which has been supported by Edward Snowden, will protect group chats, attachments, voice notes, and voice calls made across WhatsApp on Android, iPhone, Windows devices and some Nokia and BlackBerry models.The encryption method lets users see content that has been sent but does not allow service providers, such as WhatsApp itself, to access the content of the messages.
Shares of the small tech company MGT Capital Investments were up more than 37% on Tuesday at $4.08 per share.With over 108 million shares traded, it was the most active stock, ahead of Bank of America.Tuesday was another day in a stream of strong upward moves for the stock after the company announced on May 9 that it was naming John McAfee, founder of antivirus firm McAfee Security, as CEO and re-branding the firm John McAfee Global Technologies Inc.The surge followed the McAfee announcement, which included a sudden shift in the business from online gaming to cybersecurity.MGT acquired D-Vasive, a company that produces software that protects cellphones, on May 9.Before the shift, the company focused on online games such as slots simulator SlotChamp and had a 10% stake in daily fantasy site DraftDay.com.The firm had no holdings regarding cybersecurity before the acquisition, according to its most recent annual filing.Here's what we know about the abrupt pivot so far:September 8, 2015: MGT sells all but 11% of its stake in DraftDay.com, according to its annual report.April 14: After delaying its annual report from March 31, MGT files its report, saying it has $359,000 in cash on hand.The report does say that following the sale of DraftDay, the firm is "considering all methods to create value for shareholders, including potential mergers, spin-offs, distributions and other strategic actions.Brauser has been sued numerous times for fraud involving small, publicly listed firms, though some of those allegations have been dismissed.The most recent was dismissed in September 2015, for the company IDI Inc. Brauser was also CEO of an email-marketing company, Naviant, which was acquired and eventually sued by credit agency Equifax after the firm accused the shareholder sellers of fraud.According to that filing, Silverman and his firm no longer have any representation on the board.May 9: McAfee is named chairman and CEO, and the company buys Wyoming-based cybersecurity firm D-Vasive for $300,000 in cash and 4,760,000 in shares of MGT.
It's still too early to really be looking forward to the final release of Android N. It hasn't even been named yet and Google wants you to help it decide on that .That, of course, isn't discouraging some OEMs from committing themselves publicly to supporting the update this early in the game.This even prompted HTC to share an infographic detailing the development, certification, and rollout process involved for each new Android update.Of course, there are other tasty new features coming as well, like Direct Replies, even better, and more reasonable, Doze support, and more.As interesting as HTC's Android N list may be, equally interesting is what's not on that list.Saying that you will doesn't really say when you will.
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, according to the patent description.Photograph: United States Patent and Trademark OfficeGoogle has patented a new sticky technology to protect pedestrians if – or when – they get struck by the company s self-driving cars.The patent, which was granted on 17 May, is for a sticky adhesive layer on the front end of a vehicle, which would aim to reduce the damage caused when a pedestrian hit by a car is flung into other vehicles or scenery.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.Car companies have already taken steps to protect pedestrians from impact.However, the patent observes, existing technology found in production vehicles does little to mitigate the secondary impact a pedestrian may experience .

It matches the earlier leaked photos see below top to bottom aside from colour scheme, which is... a bit odd.Blass identifies it as gold but opts to call it "desert camo" instead, and we'd say it's more beige than we usually like in a gadget.Still no word on a release date or pricing for the likely AT exclusive in the States.If these photos leaked out of Vietnam are any indication, Samsung wants the Galaxy S7 Active to look more comfortable in a battlefield than a fashion show - unlike the standard Galaxy S7.Water and dust resistance were collectively one of the big enhancements for the Galaxy S7 this year, and that that same IP68 rating is reportedly maintained on the Active model, unsurprisingly.Leaks suggest the Galaxy S7 Active will have much the same specs as the Galaxy S7 in the States, including the Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM, plus the Quad HD display.

Initially, a small percentage of Bay Area drivers will be included in the trial, with the trial eventually spreading throughout the San Francisco area and lasting two months.Sitting in the Uber app s Help section, the calling function is represented by a phone icon.Currently, the Uber app offers self-service options, such as frequently asked questions, though there is a way to contact representatives.Since then I have been emailing support to get my account active again and every time I get a canned reply from different reps, Uber driver Garen Karanyan told The Verge.I would email Adrian and will get a reply from Eugene saying that he stepped in for Adrian.The ride-sharing service agreed to settlements, scheduled for review on June 2, totaling $100 million, though drivers will still be considered contractors.

It's no surprise to hear that Samsung is working on an Active version of its smartphone the Galaxy S7.Early this month some images of the Galaxy S7 Active leaked showing what was claimed to be a prototype device for ATNow another image has leaked and this time out it is claimed to be a rendering of the smartphone and it looks very official.The camo back panel appears heavily textured for grip even with wet hands.A version of the device was spied wearing the SM-G880 model number.We still have no hard data on hardware inside the S7 Active, but it is hinted that it will use the same hardware as the normal Galaxy S7.The S7 Active is expected to carry improved water resistance compared to the standard smartphone already able to survive significant time in the water.
Developers, start your Nexuses.Here s a couple of the highlight features you ll find in the new preview, which build on the features already found in the Android N Developer Preview 2.The Daydream program, complete with specially designed VR headsets, will launch this fall.Sustained performance mode API—This lets developers understand how performance will behave when an app s active for an extended duration, taking system-on-chip throttling into account once processor temperatures hit their peak.That more granular information is intended to help developers create apps that avoid performance fluctuations over time.Developer Preview 4 will offer final APIs and the official Android N software developer kit, while Google says Developer Preview 5 will deliver near-final system images for final testing before the final release that s scheduled for later this summer.
Fitbit s future plans clearly extend well beyond simple fitness tracking, as evidenced by products like the Blaze, which leans much more heavily into smartwatch territory than before.Instead it s focused, fittingly, on the mobile company s wearable payment platform.Still, it s hard not to wonder aloud what this means for Coin s future, moving forward.Also on the outs are the Coin Rewards and the Coin Developer Program.For Fitbit, the purchase means extending toward an active NFC payment solution that could be embedded into future Fitbit devices.The fitness hardware developer was still careful not to spill the beans entirely adding that there are no plans to integrate Coin s wearable payments technology into the 2016 Fitbit product roadmap.
LinkedIn Corp. is investigating whether a breach of more than 6 million users passwords in 2012 was bigger than originally thought, following a hacker s attempt to sell what is purported to be login codes for 117 million accounts.It appears that more had been taken then, and just posted now, spokesman Hani Durzy said.We are still determining how many of these are still active and accurate, since the data would be about four years old now.At the time, LinkedIn reset the passwords of everyone it believed was part of the breach, which amounted to 6.5 million users, Durzy said.Vice Media LLC s Motherboard website earlier reported that a hacker is selling the e-mails and passwords of the affected LinkedIn users for about $2,000, and provided about 1 million sample logins for verification.The passwords are encrypted but in a format that is easily cracked.In September 2015 LinkedIn s $1.25 million settlement over the breach received final approval by a court.The latest disclosure raises questions about why LinkedIn didn t reset passwords for all of its more than 160 million users at the time, which is considered good due diligence for Internet companies that experience a major breach.
