The weird science behind smart toilets and your pee

Pee could be a health goldmine. And to make the most of it, the world needs smart toilets. That’s what a new, small-scale study published in Nature this month seeks to establish: whether regular urine collection and analysis of the thousands of telling, changing indicators in our pee can reliably serve up information about a person’s health. The study’s University of Wisconsin authors, Dr. Joshua Coon and Dr. Ian Miller, say more research is still needed as the 10-day experiment only had two subjects: Coon and Miller themselves. However, they also think that a non-invasive device that could collect and analyze a person’s urine — like, say, a smart toilet — could work as a revolutionary tool for personalized, predictive …

Macy’s data breach sees customer payment details stolen

Macy’s has revealed its website suffered a security breach for a week in October exposing the personal information of customers including their payment details. As Bleeping Computer reports, the data breach occurred on macys.com and is known as a Magecart attack. Hackers managed to insert malicious code into Checkout and My Wallet pages of the department store’s website, which then proceeded to collect the personal information of customers who used the site. The malicious code was present on the website from Oct. 7 until Oct. 15, meaning if you shopped there between those dates your personal details were likely stolen. The information collected by an unauthorized third party include first name, last name, address, city, state, zip, phone number, email …

Xiaomi Mi Band 3i arrives in India with no heart-rate tracking, super low price

Stadia is not overheating Chromecasts says Google… Reddit disagrees

Google has told Reddit users that Google Chromecast devices overheating while playing games on Stadia is categorically not an issue. Following reports of overheating devices on the Stadia subreddit, Google has responded that any heat emanating from the surface of the device is by design, and that “there is no thermal overheating issue” with its bundled streaming devices. Reddit users have taken to the official Stadia subreddit to report dying/dead Chromecast Ultras following extended game sessions using the company’s recently launched Cloud service. One largely upvoted post simply titled “Chromecast Ultra Overheating” is filled with anecdotal reports from (unverifiable but seemingly legitimate) Stadia owners (via mspoweruser). Users claim that devices lose connectivity or shutdown entirely following lengthy moderately lengthy gaming sessions …

Fiber network for shared storage

I am looking to build a small network for a small TV studio that I work for. We have switched from using tapes to cards, but that means we quickly ran into a huge storage issue. I build a small 31TB storage server. The entire network consists of three computers and the storage server itself. I originally made the network with a cheap GB switch and GB cards in each computer.. I am getting really slow transfer speeds around 22MB/s. I was wondering if creating a fiber network wold give us better transfer speeds. What equipment would you suggest? I don't have a ton to spend on this probably a max of $1k. submitted by /u/Captainmdoge [link] …

SNMP/Orion, y u do dis?

One of my N7Ks was working fine with Orion. Then it died. I swapped the chassis out and replaced the config from back up. Everything is working except for SNMP. I can't even snmpwalk the device. It gives me an error about it's password (v3). It's vPC peer is still fine. I wiped all the snmp related config from the RMA chassis and replaced it exactly with the config from it's working peer. Still can't walk to it. I know there is a setting that references the mac address that could still be using the mac of the device that failed but we do not use that. Anyone have any ideas on what else can cause this? Thanks! submitted …

10 Signs You’re About to Fall for a Bad Airbnb Listing
