DON'T MISS A THING
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group today announced that its Bluetooth technology has been updated with support for mesh networking, designed to create large-scale device networks by connecting multiple Bluetooth devices to one another.
Over the weekend we picked up a Whistle 3 GPS trackers for our 4month old Australian Labradoodle @meetkona .
Our intention it to have some form of tracker on her when we begin off leash training and to have something generally on here when we are out and about. Not so much something to be on around the home as she doesn't wear a collar at home.
Our priority was to find the smallest GPS tracker as possible. The Whistle 3 is by far the smallest dog tracker on the market. I would still have liked it to a bit smaller as Kona is only about 14lbs at four months and still seems a bit big on her. It is very light, and it's something she will grow into over time.
The software was very intuitive and clean. Some of the features of this device we will not be used to it's fullest, such as the fitness tracking stuff. Or the safe zone which notifies you when your pet leaves the areas. As I mentioned before, Kona will not be wearing it all the time, but it's still nice to have the options when away from home.
So far the Whistle 3 works as expected. At $60 for the unit and a monthly subscription, it may not be for everyone.
This article is not a review but just my first impressions, keep an eye open for the full review in the coming weeks.
This is an awesome idea, I hope it does well and other companies take notice.
"Tech companies, and increasingly even non-tech companies, are struggling with the fact that there are not enough trained data scientists to fill market demand. Every company has their own strategy for hiring and training, but Airbnb has taken things a step further — running its own university-style program, complete with a custom course-numbering system."
Reactos 0.4.5 was released yesterday. Time to take another look at it. For those that are unfamiliar with it. ReactOs is an open source operating system aimed at running Windows applications and drivers in an open-source environment. I've tried it out in the past, and I like the direction they were heading it just wasn't ready for the main stream yet. This OS is still only Alpha, so it's not for the faint of heart.
If your PC has been infected by WannaCry – the ransomware that wreaked havoc across the world last Friday – you might be lucky to get your locked files back without paying the ransom of $300 to the cyber criminals.
A security researcher has discovered a serious vulnerability in the default configuration of the latest version of Google's Chrome running on any version of Microsoft's Windows operating system, including Windows 10, that could allow remote hackers to steal user's login credentials.
The Witcher is best known as a video game. What many people do not know. Is that it was based, on a series of books by Andrzek Sapkowski. Today in a press release it's been said that Netflix is developing and producing a series based on these books.
I've been waiting on Pandora's Premium service, ever since they picked up Rdio. I loved Rdio and since it was sold I was forced to find another service, Which turned out to be iTunes music because of price and library.
Back to Pandora, It's premium service is what you would expect and feels exactly like Pandora but with on demand but at this point, I find it hard to suggest it to people because of its limitations. Currently, the premium service is only supported on mobile. Desktop and other devices will have to wait along with family plans.
The 60day trial is enticing and you should check it out if you're curious, however, I don't see it worth the cost just yet. Who knows maybe in two months it will be.
This is good news but is it too little too late. At the very least, we know apple is rethinking their MacPros. Anyone who has ever used one of these Mac's in a professional environment knows it's limitations. Hopefully, Apple will take some of these suggestions to heart.
New MacPro's are needed. Entertainment and the film industry are just one of many who relies on them on a daily basis. These same industries are unsure of Apple's intentions with the pro markets. Some have jump shipped and others are just losing hope.
This command injection flaw exposes the Ubiquiti admin interface to a number of risky attacks, SEC Consult said. For example, an attacker could connect to a vulnerable device by opening a port binding or reverse shell, and also change the password because the service runs as root. “The vulnerability can be exploited by luring an attacked user to click on a crafted link or just surf on a malicious website,” SEC Consult said in its advisory. “The whole attack can be performed via a single GET-request and is very simple since there is no CSRF protection.”
It has been found that a mischievous group of hackers claiming to have access to over 300 million iCloud accounts is threatening Apple to remotely wipe data from those millions of Apple devices unless Apple pays it $75,000 in crypto-currency or $100,000 worth of iTunes gift cards. The hacking group, who identified themselves as 'Turkish Crime Family,' has demanded a ransom to be paid in Bitcoin or Ethereum, another popular crypto-currency.
A team of security researchers from Cybellum, an Israeli zero-day prevention firm, has discovered a new Windows vulnerability that could allow hackers to take full control of your computer. Dubbed DoubleAgent, the new injecting code technique works on all versions of Microsoft Windows operating systems, starting from Windows XP to the latest release of Windows 10. What's worse? DoubleAgent exploits a 15-years-old undocumented legitimate feature of Windows called "Application Verifier," which cannot be patched.
Amazon has agreed to hand over Alexa data to prosecutors in a murder trial after the defendant, an Echo owner, gave permission. The company had initially refused to do so, saying it "seeks to protect the privacy rights of its customers" and that Alexa's questions and answers are protected by the first amendment.
I totally agree with Marques Browniee he hits the nail on the head on every point. I would love to see apple make these change as i'm sure many would as well.
If your favorite website or internet service isn't accessible today, it's probably not just you. Amazon Web Services' S3 cloud storage is experiencing "high error rates" that have caused chaos among many of the sites that depend on AWS to work.
In an era of always-on devices I'm glad to see Amazon not freely handing over our privacy. If you own an amazon echo you should definitely read through this article.
Amazon has filed a motion to dismiss a search warrant for recordings from an Echo owned by a suspected murderer. Amazon argues that both its users’ requests to Alexa and the response the company produces are protected under the First Amendment. The company says it should only have to turn this data over if law enforcement meets a high burden of proof.
Over the weekend I picked up a ring "Video Doorbell" and I must say I am impressed with it out of the box.
For those that have not heard of ring, they are a California-based company bringing video doorbells and security cameras to homes.
I was impressed as soon as I opened the box seeing everything I would need for installation included, screwdrivers, drill bits, and even a level it made installation a cinch.
Setup on our iPhone was simple and quick, connect to its wifi run through the settings and switch it over to your home wifi. These video doorbells also use inferred for motion detection given you and alert even before they press that button. I'm still playing with the sensitivity to find that sweet spot
You also get two-way audio communication through the bell.
Keep a look out for a full review, but so far I'm impressed with the company as a whole.

The problem is UltraFine 5K Display becomes unusable when positioned within 6.6-feet of a router. I discovered this issue after purchasing my own UltraFine 5K Display last week and thinking something was defective with my hardware.
Right out of the box, UltraFine 5K Display was hardly usable as it would consistently disconnect and even freeze my MacBook Pro which made it unusable for work on Thursday and Friday. Connecting it to my MacBook Pro consistently resulted in needing to reboot my machine to continue working.
Andrew Tarantola said it well in TechCrunch's artilce "Enforcing privacy policies that specifically "exclude persons who are not United States citizens or lawful permanent residents," while aimed at enhancing domestic immigration laws, effectively invalidates America's part of the Data Shield agreement, opens the current administration up to sanctions by the EU and could lead our allies across the Atlantic to suspend the agreement outright."
