A man from the US state of Georgia who pleaded guilty in March to breaking into the Apple iCloud accounts of sports and entertainment figures was sentenced on Thursday to three years and one month in federal prison – and ordered to pay almost $700,000 in restitution.Kwamaine Jerell Ford was indicted in April, 2018, at the age of 27, for six counts each of wire fraud, computer fraud, access device fraud, and aggravated identity theft.'More creative and more devious'"In today’s high tech world, citizens entrust their personal information to a number of service providers and expect that information to be protected,” said Chris Hacker, the aptly named Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta, in a statement.Ford's scheme, which spanned the period from March 2015 to March 2018, was not particularly creative nor devious, but it worked well enough.It involved duping the people into believing that he was an Apple support representative so they would reveal their iCloud account passwords and the answers to their security questions.

Instagram debuted Stories in August 2016, and by March 2017, businesses of all sizes were allowed to run ads alongside the ephemeral content format.However, despite the theoretical lack of barriers for smaller brands looking to capitalize on Stories ads, a recent study found that larger companies still enjoyed many advantages.Software-as-a-service company Socialinsider—which offers marketers an analytics tool covering Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube—examined 135,976 Instagram Stories from 2,548 business accounts and shared its findings.The study found that, on average, brands posted Stories on seven days each month, but follower size was a factor.Brands with 100,000 or more followers posted Stories an average of roughly every two days, while those with fewer than 1,000 followers did so approximately every four days.And Socialinsider pointed out that only business accounts with over 10,000 followers can include links in their Stories, giving them more incentive to create content for this medium.

It suggests the products are cost-effective and environmentally friendly compared to tampons and pads, while still being safe and able to provide roughly the same level of protection against leakage.The concept of the cup, which is inserted into the vagina to collect menstrual blood, has existed since at least the 1930s.It’s only lately, thanks partly to new brand-name products like the Diva Cup, that they’ve seen a spike in popularity.The authors of the study, published in the Lancet on Tuesday, reviewed the relatively little amount of medical literature there is surrounding menstrual cups.They looked at 43 studies involving just over 3,300 women living in both developing and developed countries, dating as far back as the 1960s.“Menstrual cups seem to be an effective and safe alternative to other menstrual products,” the authors write.

Sometimes you have more overnight guests than beds -- and making people sleep on the floor should always be a last resort.But when space is limited -- or when you're camping or traveling -- blowing up an air mattress is usually the best solution for accommodating folks, for comfort, and for a good night's sleep.However, the air mattress is a dizzyingly crowded product category, with more than 10,000 search results on Amazon alone.This includes repeatedly inflating and deflating them, evaluating their construction and durability, and subjecting them to the rigors of a series of acrobatically inclined children's sleepovers for air pressure, comfort and how puncture-resistant they are.Best overall: SoundAsleep Dream SeriesHeight when inflated: 19 inches

Technology has always been about increasing productivity and efficiency, but its impact in the enterprise now transcends productivity in a few very important ways.Second is its impact on employee recruitment, productivity, and loyalty.Employers that embrace these agile ways of working, and meet employee expectations of consumer-like digital experiences, are more likely to win the ongoing war for talent.According to a survey by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 58% of employers believe their technology offerings are a factor in candidates’ decision to work for them, while 51% say outdated technology hampers their ability to compete for talent.Further, the survey found that giving employees access to data and knowledge is a key component in building a connected workforce, raising loyalty, and attracting candidates.Using technology to influence recruitment and retention requires platforms that embrace the principles of a modern workforce at their core.

Glitch, the quirky and collaborative coding site, announced a new milestone today: more than 2.5 million apps have been made on its website since it launched in 2017.(That’s up from 1 million apps just over a year ago.)On top of the milestone, Glitch also announced that it raised $30 million in funding last year, which is meant to show “how big we think the Glitch opportunity is” and that its coding tools are being built into Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code.Apps on Glitch are decidedly smaller, simpler, and quicker to make on average.For example, many are focused, single-use things, like an app for making sign bunnies or pulling up album artwork thumbnails through an iTunes API.Others are more involved, like tools for learning to code, but the real point of Glitch is to make bite-sized features and share them with the community.

Openreach has admitted that 50,000 premises covered by its fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network can only get speeds of up to 330Mbps rather than the much-touted 1Gbps.As of the last quarter, some 1.5 million homes are covered by the BT broadband division's FTTP network.It's a legacy issue – kit from manufacturer ECI, which BT invested in 10 years ago, is slowing parts of the network down.ISP Review first broke news of the issue and appears to have been on the money when it correctly estimated the number of premises affected.Andrew Ferguson of ThinkBroadband said the hardware has not proved capable."The problem is with the ECI head-ends, where all the traffic comes together [in the exchange]."

Mercedes on Thursday unveiled the 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45.The CLA35's four-cylinder engine is thrown out the window and replaced with the bonkers M139, otherwise known as the most powerful production four-cylinder out there.In this instance, it produces 382 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque -- not the maximum the M139 is capable of, mind you, but there will likely be a CLA45 S in the future with even more juice.The Europeans will get a CLA45 S for sure, because that's the car seen in the pictures accompanying this story, but Mercedes-Benz said in an email that it does not have an announcement regarding the US availability of CLA45 S variants.It comes mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that should get the CLA45 to 60 miles per hour in about 4.0. seconds.It should sound the absolute business, thanks to a standard active exhaust that uncorks itself in Sport+ mode.

An updated law, which took effect Monday, expands upon an existing law that says anyone who shares or sells nude or sexual images and videos to "coerce, harass, or intimidate" is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.The update adds language about "a falsely created videographic or still image," as reported earlier by Ars Technica.The Virginia General Assembly passed the updated bill in March, when it was also signed by Gov.Deepfakes are leading to growing concern about privacy.Last week, an app called DeepNude, which uses artificial intelligence to morph pictures of clothed women into nudes, shut down.Samsung also developed an AI system that can create a fake clip from a single picture.

The team says that the study has significant implications for quantum information technology and for how data is stored and shared in the future.In the experiment, the team ran the inaccessible space they uses were carbon atoms inside a diamond.Those atoms are made of linked but individually contained carbon atmos.Each carbon atom has six protons and six neutrons in the nucleus surrounded by six spinning electrons.When they bond into a diamond, the lattice they create is notoriously strong.However, diamonds can have defects where a nitrogen atom exists in one of two adjacent vacancies where carbon atoms should be; this is a nitrogen-vacancy center.
