They also found that the Android and iOS phones tested leaked a host of private data to the computer they were connected to whilst charging, including the device name, device manufacturer, device type, serial number and even a list of files.This idea was proposed by hackers as a theory in 2014 but never proven.The 'effective power' string of Arabic text would crash a friend's iPhone if they were sent it in May 2015A prank website crashsafari.com crashed iPhones and affect other phones and devices in January 2016Many iPhone 6 users who had their touchscreens replaced by third parties have been hit by the 'Error 53' message which disables an iPhone if Touch ID has been tampered withChanging the date to January 1 1970 on iPhone 5s and later renders the iPhone useless when it is rebooted"The security risks here are obvious: if you re a regular user, you can be tracked through your device IDs; your phone could be silently packed with anything from adware to ransomware.Hackers have already exploited this connection: in 2013, Italian hackers known as "The Hacking Team" were able to infect a phone with malware through a computer connection.They plotted the attack based on the device model of the victim, which the hackers managed to get through the USB-connected computer.How to protect yourselfOnly plug your phone into trusted computers, using trusted USB cablesProtect your mobile phone with a password, or with another method such as fingerprint recognition, and don t unlock it while charging.
All images: Adam Clark EstesLet me get this out of the way: the trillion dollar F-35 fighter jet program is an embarrassing mess.This conflict squeezed my brain this week, when the Air Force stopped by Gizmodo s office with a $400,000 F-35 helmet in hand.The Major was in the area to fly his F-35A at the Atlantic City Air Show this weekend.Although, like the rest of the F-35 program, even the weight of the helmet has been subject to controversy lately.Each helmet is custom-fitted to the pilot using a complex set of 3D scanners to increase comfort and safety.But to sit down with a pilot who flies an F-35 and see the $400,000 helmet I d read about was a weird thrill.
Det kommer nu nya uppgifter om den utrustning som franska bolaget Alseamar ska använda för att snappa upp signalerna från de svarta lådorna till det kraschade Egyptair-planet.Enligt France24 ska tre experter från Alseamar finnas ombord på franska marinens hydrografiska fartyg Laplace, som nu är på väg från Korsica till sökområdet i östra Medelhavet.Sonderna kan sänkas ned 300 meter i vattnet och kan uppfatta ljud på 4-5 kilometers avstånd.Den inspelade ljudinformationen laddas sedan över till och bearbetas i datorer.Enligt France24 överväger den franska marinen också att skicka en ubåt liksom annan utrustning som kan användas för att bärga föremål från stora djup.Det bidrar till att begränsa sökområdet till en radio om cirka fem kilometer.

A new computer display has landed on Indiegogo that is designed to be portable and specifically made to function in bright outdoor spaces called Paperlike.It's not going to be ideal for watching video or viewing images, but for surfing the web, typing, or doing general computer work, it will be ideal.Portrait and landscape modes are supported.If you were hoping for a cheap solution, you may be disappointed with the $799 Indiegogo price.The retail price is listed at $995 making this more expensive than many standard monitors on the market today.Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk.
Quora s been at the Q game for 7 years now but still is only starting to monetize.He gave a positive projection of the business, saying The company s just getting bigger and delivering more audience for people who write.As big as the company s gotten, it s still a very safe and civil place to answer questions.And I might help Nadia Singer — Quora s Head of Outreach — keep bringing on more session hosts like Hillary Clinton and White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.After original Quora co-founder Charlie Cheever left, Bodnick shouldered the responsibility for press and marketing while CEO Adam D Angelo led.His recent work securing famous public figures like Sheryl Sandberg for Quora s Ask Me Anything-style Writing Sessions has helped juice user growth.
Update: SpaceX decided to postpone the launch until no earlier than Friday out of "an abundance of caution."The team will undertake more data review, though SpaceX said in a tweet that the Falcon 9 rocket and spacecraft are "healthy."We'll report on any further developments as well as the launch and ocean landing attempt when they take place.SpaceX's Falcon 9 is prepping for another takeoff in just a few hours, and its all streaming live for the enjoyment of us amateur aeronautic enthusiasts.Falcon 9's mission is two-fold: deploy a commercial communications satellite for Asian satellite operator Thaicom into orbit, and then the tricky part: stick the landing.We've covered SpaceX's exploits several times in the past, both triumphant and not-so-successful, but we can't help being excited each time Falcon 9 steps up to the plate.
Just over a year ago, in March 2015, two Swiss engineers launched their round-the-world flight on a solar-powered airplane: Solar Impulse 2.The longest lap so far was crossing the Pacific from Hawaii: three days!They will be crossing the Atlantic early in June, and will end their odyssey later this summer, back in Abu Dhabi.They are monitored by a round-the-clock team in Monaco, which I visited last week.Right now they are flying over America, heading towards New York after several stops along the way.Also on HuffPost:Unable to play video.
Hungryroot cofounder Ben McKean says his mission is to "make indulgence healthy" by serving up counterintuitive, ready-to-cook products like carrot noodles and chickpea cookie dough which actually tastes good .And now Hungryroot is looking to supersize its customer base through a nationwide launch and a deal with Whole Foods that will gets its products into retail stores.The Whole Foods launch, in particular, is a huge deal, McKean tells Business Insider.Ramping up production to reach a Whole-Foods level of demand is risky, he says, especially for new products.A few years ago, that type of direct-to-consumer launch wouldn t have been possible, McKean says.Hungryroot hopes to be in 40 stores by end of summer and 100 by the end of the year.Right now, Hungryroot is tinkering to try and craft a healthy birthday cake, "funfetti" batter, McKean says.NOW WATCH: Sorry Apple fans — the iPhone 7 is going to be boringLoading video...
In today s I can t believe they ve been funded news, a startup called Star-ALE wants to create a man-made meteor shower over the city of Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics opening ceremonies.But unlike fireworks, this pyrotechnics show will be visible from an area over 120 miles across Japan.The reason Star-ALE calls its Sky Canvas light show a man-made meteor shower is because the pyrotechnics will actually rain down from space.Starting next year, the company will launch a series of microsatellites carrying 500 to 1,000 specially-developed pellets that ignite and intensely glow as they re-enter the earth s atmosphere.To make sure the idea actually works, in a lab here on earth the pellets were placed in a vacuum chamber and blasted with supersonic hot gases, simulating the friction they d experience as they re-entered our planet s atmosphere.If the Tokyo 2020 Olympics weren t over-budget already, this would surely not help their bottom line.
fotograf: Johan Nilsson / TTEtt antal avgångar och ankomster från Arlanda och Bromma flygplats är inställda till följd av gårdagens flygstopp över Sverige..Vad som orsakade flygledningshaveriet ska nu utredas.På Arlanda flygplats är i dag åtta avgångar och elva ankomster inställda.På Bromma flygplats är en avgång och en ankomst inställd.– Det handlar om flygplan och personal som stod på fel plats eftersom de inte kom i väg i går.Vissa bolag fattade beslut redan i går om att ställa in i förebyggande syfte, säger Åsa Öhman, pressansvarig på Swedavia.Det var vid lunchtid i går som ett datorfel i flygledningen gjorde att svenskt luftrum stängdes under ett par timmar.
For public radio fans, this means you ll soon get mobile apps that offer access to the full PRX catalog, including The Moth Radio Hour and the Radiotopia podcast network.And even if you re not a fan, the combined PRX-RadioPublic enterprise is a noteworthy attempt at creating a hybrid media business model.Now he s transitioning over to serve the same role at RadioPublic, and he told me that by building its own mobile apps, the company is hoping to help an entire industry rethink radio.In fact, RadioPublic has already raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Project11, The New York Times, Graham Holdings, UP2398, Knight Foundation Enterprise Fund, Matter Ventures, American Public Media, McClatchy and Homebrew.Shapiro described the decision to make RadioPublic a for-profit as very deliberate, saying it will allow the company to pursue a different kind of growth plan while remaining very aligned around the purpose and the mission.Kerri Hoffman, a longtime PRX executive who s taking over as CEO, said that launching RadioPublic allows PRX to relieve some of the internal tensions we have about our ambitions around how do we reach the audience in an increasingly mobile age.
Why checklists?Well, checklists are the most popular way to onboard new employees, and that s for a good reason.Checklists help you to follow a process, make sure you don t neglect anything important and stay compliant.Instead of making you write your own, you can use one of the 6 we ve prepared for you as a basis, and either take it as it is or modify it for your business.
