In one hand they held traditional glasses of bubbly, but in the other were sheets of paper they had filled with their personal data.They wanted to know what would happen in a world where instead of vetting potential dates by their artfully posed selfies or carefully crafted dating-site profiles, we looked at data gathered by their computers and phones.As use of data-gathering devices increases, it s a world that s just round the corner.Elsden and his colleagues want to explore other ways we can use data that gets collected as we go about our modern lives.Can we give people more control over it, make it more ambiguous or playful?It asked for a host of specific numbers: shoe size, the farthest distance they had travelled from home, the earliest and latest times of day they had sent an email in the past month, their heart rate as they filled out the form.
In a recent and more rigorous experiment, a group of researchers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, University of Michigan and Google, dropped nearly 300 USB thumb drives around six campus locations and found that at least 45 percent of them were plugged into a computer and perused by the person who found them.While modern Windows and Mac systems no longer run programs on a USB stick by default, other attacks, such as BadUSB, can make a USB drive appear to be something else, such as keyboard, and then use that access to take malicious actions.When the company finds untrusted USB drives, it can test them, said Chris Novak, a director with the firm s RISK team, a computer investigations group.We often do executive protection, where, when executives go overseas or to a big conference, we give them temporary equipment, and if something happens, we get it back.Playing the movie trailer on the drive installed malware on the victim s computer, enabling the attacker to steal an unreleased movie.The fact that users plug such storage devices into corporate computers is a nightmare for IT security professionals, to the degree that they sometimes—and somewhat controversially—block USB ports on highly sensitive computers by gluing them closed with epoxy.

The net menace was the one-time world's biggest bot worming its way since 2008 through millions of machines across every country in the world, smashing through social networks including Facebook, Skype, and popular email services.It exploits a Windows vulnerability CVE-2008-4250 shuttered in a Microsoft critical update that year.Check Point says it registered the worm as the chief threat last month noting it was behind 17 percent of malware attacks.Their creation has remained in headlines since 2008 having infected a swath of cheap hard drives and USBs, and even police body-worn cameras in the United States.Check Point noted Conficker's dominance last December, and CERT UK recently said it found more than half a million infections in April .Its rootkit was thought to reside on more than a million machines and is still operating thanks to an incomplete command and control take down effort in 2013.

The iPhone SE isn't Apple's most premium iPhone — it costs $400, comes with a tiny 4-inch screen, and uses a chassis design that's four years old.But there's one area where it blows the iPhone 6S away: battery life.The iPhone 6S only managed 7.45 hours.Turns out, the iPhone SE's smaller screen paired with its modern processor results in a phone that can last a long time on a single charge.Apple even hired the publication's founder, Anand Lal Shimpi, in 2014.Unfortunately, Anandtech didn't compare the SE to the iPhone 6S Plus, which also boasts better battery life than the iPhone 6S, thanks to its larger battery.Still, the finding lines up with other reviewers' impressions as well as Apple's own official marketing, which claims the iPhone SE has the best battery life for web-browsing usage of all three current-generation iPhones.On paper, Apple says the 6S Plus can last up to 12 hours on Wi-Fi, while the 5SE will last up to 13 hours on Wi-Fi.You can read the entire Anandtech iPhone SE review here.
