Two huge databases of user information is for sale on the network's shadow side. Close to 360 million users is included in the database, making it one of the greatest password leaks. Security expert Troy Hunt has tried to date the leak and come to account information probably comes from 2008 or in 2009. "We have annulled all passwords to accounts that were created before 11 June 2013," writes Myspace in a blog post. "What really makes me curious is: if this is a trend, where does it end? And for that matter, even if these events do not come from the same source, and if it's just a coincidence that they are released now, how many more "mega" -läckor are out there in the grip of unknown parties?
Moreover, Facebook s latest update means that all emojis will look the same across all platforms and devices, because sometimes, homogeneity is a good thing.Emojis are one of the most important ways we communicate emotion to each other, said Messenger product manager Tony Leach.As suchF, he added, Facebook has made a to better represent the real world.Further, Facebook is planning on adding more diverse gender roles within its emoji library, with new female emojis including a police officer, a swimmer, and a surfer.Using emojis to communicate has become its own language really, so of course people want to extend that language and have more dialect, Jonas Downey, co-creator of Emojisaurus.com told USA Today.Generally we think it s really important for unicode standards to represent the real world as closely as possible, concluded Downey.
Silicon Valley s newest venture capital firm doesn t want a piece of Uber or Airbnb.The firm launches with a portfolio of Silicon Valley tech companies that includes Palo Alto-based cyber security company Vera, San Francisco-based GPS technology company Swift Navigation and Palo Alto-based online career platform Paysa.Madhavan and Rust, who also were early investors in GoPro and Groupon, have grown used to being the first VCs on a deal.The two have invested in dozens of companies over the years, both together and separately, and Rust says they were the first investors in 90 percent of those deals.They prefer startups in the raw, earliest stages because as former entrepreneurs themselves, they feel that s the time when they can have the biggest impact.The way we view it is we are both general contractors helping you build your startup, Madhavan said.Plus, early-stage investments give the best returns, he added.Prior to starting Clear Ventures, Madhavan founded LogicVision, Ambit and Magma Design Automation.Rust was a co-founder of broadband Internet provider Roadrunner, now Time Warner Cable Internet.That first-hand entrepreneurial experience is what the Clear Ventures partners are banking on to set them apart from the rest of the VC world.For San Jose-based cloud storage company Robin Systems, one of Clear s portfolio companies, the partners experience as founders has been an asset.

When conditions tilt back the other way, ice disappears from lower latitudes and the polar caps thicken again.But without understanding how those glimpses connect together, the information they can reveal is limited.Since the last break about 370,000 years ago, ice has been moving back to the poles—meaning Mars is currently in an interglacial period.This layer is thinner and a bit more complicated at the southern pole, equaling about eight percent of the volume of the northern layer.Without many direct clues about the timing of the ice age breaks in the layering, we re reliant on modeling of the orbital cycles to figure out when they should have occurred.During the last 370,000 years, for example, tilt has only varied subtly.
fotograf: AlamyEnligt Stefan Engeseth, strategisk rågivare och författare, står byggbranschen inför en omvälvning när konkurrens dyker upp från oväntat håll.Stefan Engeseth, som bland annat skrivit boken Sharkonomics, förutspår att en digital våg kommer svepa över byggsektorn och reducera byggbolagen till underleverantörer åt it-jättar som IBM, Google och Microsoft.– Det sades att Titanic var osänkbar - nu talar vi om ett digitalt isberg som byggbranschen är på väg att köra rakt in i, säger han till Business Insider.Nu menar Stefan Engeseth att situationen är på väg att förändras i rask takt och att byggprojekten kan utformas innan byggbolagen involveras.Enligt Engeseth lär det också bli allt vanligare med globala upphandlingar som sköts av it-jättarna.Enligt flera källor till Business Insider är IBM inblandat i ett byggprojekt i Stockholm.
Asus s chairman, Jonney Shih, introduces Zenbo: Our ambition is to enable robotic computing for every household.It is capable of independent movement, can respond to voice commands and has both entertainment protocols for keeping kids amused and home care systems to help look after older people.Jonney Shih, the Asus chairman, said: For decades, humans have dreamed of owning such a companion: one that is smart, dear to our hearts, and always at our disposal.Photograph: Sam Yeh/AFP/GettyZenbo will remind older people of doctor s appointments or medication schedules, and will monitor the home for emergency situations such as falls.Asus hopes that children will take to the robot, which can sing, dance, tell stories and play games, while controlling the surrounding environment, including the lights, for a bit more novelty.Only SoftBank s Pepper robot, which is currently available in Japan costing 198,000 yen £1,220 , is close to what Asus is looking to offer, with articulated arms, cameras and sensors in a head and a screen on its chest.
The battle to bring desktop-class graphics performance to your laptop is starting to heat up in earnest.It delivers desktop graphics to your laptop over a speedy Thunderbolt 3 connection with help from AMD s new XConnect technology, which was developed in conjunction with Intel.Asus ROG Station X2 demands a pair of Thunderbolt 3 connections, by comparison, while Acer s external graphics dock is powered by a mobile graphics chip that can t be swapped out.Ironically, while that means Nvidia s entire GTX 900- and 10-series graphics cards are compatible with the enclosure, along with most air-cooled versions of the Radeon R300-series and the Fury lineup, PowerColor s own hulking Devil-branded Radeon 390 and 390X graphics cards aren t. AMD s XConnect technology allows Radeon graphics cards to be plugged into supported laptops on the fly, while you ll need to shut down your system before swapping in a GeForce card.In practice, laptop manufacturers need to update their system firmware to support Intel graphics switching for these external Thunderbolt docks to work properly—at least with the Core.Currently, Razer s own Blade laptops and Intel s Skull Canyon NUC support the Core, and presumably the PowerColor Devil Box as well.

ASSOCIATED PRESSA recent audit has found that a rather crucial part of the U.S. Defense Department s computer infrastructure still runs off floppy disks.You see these floppy disks aren t being used for some old redundant air conditioning system or the computer that controls the vending machines in the Pentagon.The U.S. Defense Department are using floppy disks to store the codes for the nukes.Well it looks like the U.S. Defense Department is just like one of those friends, except they happen to have entrusted the nuclear codes of America to a computer system that makes Windows 95 look positively space-age.Things aren t much better over at the Department of Justice either which was found to be using an IBM mainframe system that used a programming language first developed in the 50s.Secondly the DoD promises that it s going to start updating the entire system, only thing is it s not going to be ready until the end of next year.
And interestingly enough, the company even said that customers will frequently call GoDaddy s customer support line to pitch and get feedback on their business ideas.Other users can then see ideas and answer yes or no, giving valuable feedback to the entrepreneur.One cool feature – the app will tell you what business ideas were submitted from entrepreneurs in your area.Flare will also verify certain users to give them credibility, a way the company hopes to increase the chances that small-time business owners can get feedback from CEOs and and other well known businesspeople.Rene Reinsberg, VP of Emerging Products at GoDaddy, explained that the goal is to allow entrepreneurs to get feedback on businesses at the idea stage, since nowadays most crowdfunding campaigns which were arguably once supposed to be build just around ideas require a lot of upfront polish and capital.But in the company s defense, there is currently no connection between the app and GoDaddy services.
The OnePlus 3 has been heavily leaked across the internet and while leaks and rumors often end up being wrong or flat out made up a new leak that's unlikely to be wrong has emerged, revealing not just the design of the phone but an almost complete specs listing.The information, which was spotted by Android Central, comes straight from TENAA China's regulatory agency , so short of hearing something from OnePlus itself this is up there with the more official sources of information.Seems believableThose specs largely line up with what we've heard before, though some rumors pointed to a larger 3500mAh battery and 6GB of RAM, both of which are still possible if OnePlus launches two different configurations of the phone.As well as specs the TENAA listing also includes images of the OnePlus 3, which show a metal handset with an HTC 10-like design, that matches an earlier leaked render.According to the TENAA listing it comes in at 152.6 x 74.6 x 7.3mm and 160g, which would make it a similar size to the OnePlus 2, but quite a lot slimmer and slightly lighter.While we still wouldn't take anything as gospel until it's come direct from OnePlus, this is close enough to official that it's likely to be accurate.

What do rival networks have going on?Though we ve broken charges down by continent where possible, there are a few exceptions Tunisia being a constant thorn in the side where costs may be higher or lower, so it s always worth double-checking before you travel.EE Roaming Chargesee tableUnsurprisingly, things look a lot friendlier in Europe than they do elsewhere with EE much of the same follows below , with roaming figures in Africa, Asia and South America particularly high.That said, EE offers innumerous talk-and- text and data add-ons tailored to individual countries around the world, which make holidaying a little easier on the wallet.We ve left Africa out of the table above purely because there doesn t appear to be any sort of dominant pattern to follow, with the charges in various countries bouncing up and down more often than Steve Ballmer on a bouncy castle.Oh, and by the way, Asia Pacific includes Australia, Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Tokelau.
