Used Nest cameras had bug that let previous owners peer into homes

Google says it has fixed an issue that allowed old owners of Nest security cameras to continue to view a feed from the device, even after deregistering it from their account. The issue could have potentially allowed an old owner of one of the cameras to continue to look through it, even after selling it to someone else. The new owner would have had no indication that a stranger could be able to look inside their home. “We were recently made aware of an issue affecting some Nest cameras connected to third-party partner services via Works with Nest,” a Google spokesperson said to The Verge. “We’ve since rolled out a fix for this issue that will update automatically, so if …

Apple says incoming China tariffs would be disastrous for business

Apple says the Trump administration’s tariffs could lower the company’s economic output and put it at a disadvantage compared to its international competitors, particularly its Chinese counterparts. In Apple’s letter to US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, the company argues that the proposed tariffs, which would impact nearly every Apple device including the iPhone, MacBook, AirPods, and Apple Watch, would hurt Apple’s US employees and its ability to contribute to the US economy. Up until now, Apple has more or less skirted around the Trump administration’s tariffs, despite its heavy reliance on Chinese manufacturing. Earlier rounds of China tariffs had avoided Apple’s highest volume devices, like the iPhone and Apple Watch, but… Continue reading… Read more: theverge.com

LG tries to bring webOS to cars, robots, and the smart home with new partnership

LG and The Qt Company have announced an expanded partnership to bring webOS to more devices including cars, robots, and other smart home products. LG says the partnership will make it more efficient to port webOS to new devices. LG and The Qt Company have been working together on webOS since 2014, after LG acquired the Palm-developed operating system from HP. LG used Qt’s software developer framework and GUI tools to scale webOS from a phone OS into one that can now be found in TVs, smart refrigerators, and even a smartwatch for a short time. Last year LG open-sourced webOS, in an attempt to drive its adoption. While this latest move doesn’t guarantee an increase in webOS adoption, it …

Amazon Fire TV Recast discounted to $130 in run up to Prime Day 2019

Amazon’s Fire TV Recast, its Alexa-enabled take on the Slingbox, is currently discounted from its regular price of $230 down to $130. You’ll need to be a Prime subscriber to take advantage of the deal, but if that’s the case then you can get the device at its cheapest price ever. According to the price tracker CamelCamelCamel, the cheapest the Fire TV Recast has been previously was $180, and that was back in November. When we reviewed Amazon’s DVR last year we generally liked its user interface, but we weren’t fans of the mobile app, and its limit of two concurrent streams felt too low. That made the device hard to unambiguously recommend at its $230 starting price, but with …

Digital security is confusing. This app protects everything for $20.

  There’s no greater thrill in the world than breaking open the box of a shiny, new electronic device — well, maybe with the exception of getting Thai takeout via drone (whoa). But once your device is out of the box, it’s in the real world, and that can be a little dangerous for your new digital pal. If you’ve ever experienced your brand new Macbook Pro getting infected with a virus or malware, you know the reality that comes with putting our entire lives into cyberspace. Just like any good parent of a shiny new laptop, you have to keep your device safe. You can go piecemeal, cobbling together security from a bunch of different apps and sources, and spend …

Here’s more proof the next iPhone will have a huge camera bump

This year’s iPhone will likely have a triple rear camera, located inside a hefty, square bump on the phone’s back. We’ve seen rumors, mock-ups, and case renders indicating the new design, and now, the reliable /LEAKS claims to have CAD images of all three iPhone models coming out this year.  CAD renders, if accurate, are typically sourced off actual product designs that had leaked somewhere along Apple’s supply chain. They often give us a very good idea of what the finalized device will look like, though they can also be misleading if they’re based on wrong or outdated info.  #Apple – #iPhoneXI – iPhone XI CAD https://t.co/3T9JC2n5jN pic.twitter.com/cGP98c3iPs — /LEAKS (@Slashleaks) July 1, 2019 Read more… More about Apple, Iphone, …

Microsoft’s foldable Surface could support Android apps

““““`Microsoft’s next Surface could be unlike any other, and not just because it will be foldable. A new report in Forbes reveals more details about the rumored device, and it sounds like the next-generation Surface will be a serious departure from previous versions of the product. The report, which was based off a market research firm’s “supply chain sources,” claims that the fold-up Surface will have dual 9-inch displays, LTE or possibly 5G support, and will launch in the first half of 2020. It’s not clear if the “foldable” Surface refers to simply a collapsible dual-screen device, or to a truly flexible display. Previous reports have indicated that Microsoft is prepping Windows 10 for both such scenarios. And rumors of …

Everything we learned about computer viruses from ’90s films

If you know how to protect your mainframe from the backdoor trojan worm that’s duplicated the virus code malware drive in the reboot server, uh, code, then this article isn’t for you. If it sounds made up and like a movie script from the ’90s, then keep reading unless you want your identity stolen and used on the dark web to buy caviar and rhino horn. Unless you can type as well as the guy below (a government official in the original 1995 film Ghost in the Shell), or you’ve already got a cybersecurity solution like Bitdefender set up, then the world of computer viruses and hacking can be real confusing — but important to know.

Court: GOP mapmaker's files allowed in gerrymandering trial

A few dozen computer files recovered from the home of a deceased Republican redistricting consultant can be offered as evidence in next week’s partisan gerrymandering trial in North Carolina, state judges ruled on Friday. The three-judge panel presiding over the trial that starts Monday sided with the election reform group Common Cause, the North Carolina Democratic Party and registered Democratic voters who are suing Republican lawmakers and challenging state House and Senate boundaries drawn in 2017. The plaintiffs subpoenaed documents from the estranged daughter of longtime GOP mapmaker Tom Hofeller that turned out to be more than 75,000 files from 22 hard drives and thumb drives that she said she came across while looking for personal mementos.

Microsoft’s rumored dual-display Surface could emulate Android apps, which isn’t a bad idea

A new report from IHS Markit suggests that Microsoft may build Android emulation into future Surface devices, specifically the rumored “Centaurus” dual-screen PC said to launch early next year. IHS Markit told Forbes that the dual-screen device, with two 9-inch displays, would be powered by Intel’s 10nm “Lakefield” system-on-a-chip. Microsoft’s new Windows Core OS (WCOS) will serve as the operating system, IHS added. (Microsoft hasn’t confirmed that it’s necessarily working on a future successor to Windows, but we know that devices like the Surface Hub 2 will include new “experiences,” said to be WCOS.) IHS also aid that the device would include 5G WWAN connectivity. While that itself would not be surprising, Microsoft has yet to design a Surface that …

Hackers steal call records from cell providers in ‘massive-scale’ espionage

Hackers have stolen call records from over 10 cell providers worldwide as part of a “massive-scale” espionage attempt against at least 20 individuals, TechCrunch reports. The attack has been dubbed “Operation Softcell” by Cybereason, the security research firm that discovered it. It’s sophisticated enough that the firm believes there’s a “very high probability” it’s state-backed. The target of the attacks are “call detail records,” which contain detailed metadata on every call made from an individual’s phone, including times, dates, and the cell-based location of the device. The content of calls are not held in these records, but the metadata alone is hugely valuable. If a carrier doesn’t realize that its network has been infiltrated,… Continue reading… Read more: theverge.com

Original USB plug wasn’t reversible because being cheap was more important

The Universal Serial Bus standard came into being more than 20 years ago, ushering in the USB era, which has been defined by two things: a common, ubiquitous standard for connecting peripherals to PCs, and the daily annoyance of trying to plug things in the right way. USB co-inventor Ajay Bhatt has talked to NPR recently, as spotted by Boing Boing, and given some background on why the plug took the form that it did and what its creation was intended to achieve. Leading Intel’s team as part of a multi-company effort, Bhatt was seeking to address the rather gruesome mess of device-specific cables, plugs, and connectors that people had to deal with back in the ‘90s. As he’d previously …
