Woman Quits Her Job And Spends 57 Days Looking For Her Lost Dog, Finally Finds Her In Another State

A woman from Washington State spent nearly two months searching for her runaway dog.  Refusing to give up, she did everything in her power to find her beloved 7-year-old border collie, Katie. Including quitting her job. Katie escaped from a hotel room in July during a trip to Montana with owners Carole and Verne King. Though she’s a social and friendly dog, she’s also skittish and the couple believes the pup was scared by thunder and fled the My Place Hotel while they were out for dinner. Image credits: Debora Larose Image credits: Denice Rutherford‎ They searched the hotel grounds, calling for Katie until early morning. Nothing.  The next day, King continued her search, putting up fliers, knocking on doors and posting on …

Facebook sues WhatsApp developer that allegedly put spyware on phones of journalists and political dissidents

Facebook is going to court. The social media giant, which owns the messaging service WhatsApp, has filed a complaint against the Israeli tech company NSO Group for allegedly developing and deploying spyware on approximately 1,400 users’ smartphones via the messaging app. And here’s the scary thing: According to Facebook, the victims didn’t even have to click on anything for the spyware to take over their devices.  We first learned of this troubling attack in May of this year, with reports that all a bad actor had to do was call a person via WhatsApp to compromise their phone. Once installed, the software could read decrypted messages on a person’s device.  Read more… More about Facebook, Encryption, Whatsapp, Nso Group, and …

ESPN Bows To Communist China, Posts Illegitimate Propaganda Map Of China

ESPN’s “SportsCenter” aired an illegitimate map of China on Wednesday morning that featured Chinese propaganda claiming that the communist nation owns the disputed South China Sea, Taiwan, part of the Philippines, and Arunachal Pradesh. The map is known as China’s “10-dash line” map which “features 10 dash lines instead of nine dash lines to mark a huge swath of the South China Sea in a tongue-shaped encirclement as Chinese territory,” GMA Network, a major national commercial broadcast television and radio network in the Philippines, reported in 2013. “Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam have been contesting China’s massive claim of the territory. Nine dashes in the new Chinese map are in the South China Sea and a tenth dash …

Samsung teases another folding phone, but this one’s a clamshell

If you thought the Galaxy Fold’s initial woes would stop Samsung from continuing to make bendy screens, you’d be wrong. At the Samsung Developer Conference today, the company teased a new device that folds more like the clamshell phones of olds. It’s an intriguing form factor – one that’s already alleged to show up in the rumored Motorola RAZR phone next month. By folding vertically rather than horizontally, the device is able to maintain a more typical smartphone size and aspect ratio when open. This should make the device more familiar to use and provide a more comfortable aspect ratio… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Samsung Read more: thenextweb.com

Get Android 10 on Redmi Note 5 Pro with Pixel Experience

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro was amongst best-selling devices last year, Xiaomi launched it running on Android Nougat, and was updated to Android 8.1 (Oreo) in June 2018. The company rolled out Android 9.0 (Pie) update to the smartphone back in May this year, the device is almost 18 months old and has already received two Android updates. It is almost certain that Xiaomi will not update the Android version on the Redmi Note 5 Pro, but in case you own a Redmi Note 5 Pro and wish to keep your device updated with the latest Android version, you may try a custom ROM. We had earlier tried Android 10 based Arrow OS on our Redmi Note 5 Pro and now, we are back with Android …

Samsung Galaxy Fold successor with new clamshell foldable design teased

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked event back in February, and it started rolling out globally from last month. At the Samsung Developer Conference 2019 (SDC19) the company teased a new clam shell folding-screen form factor that it’s working on. This folds vertically to form a small and square form factor when closed. It also shows a punch-hole camera. In the video, it has shown side-by-side comparison between the curent Galaxy Fold and the upcoming Clamshell model to show how the UI will resize elements if the clamshell device is partially folded.  The new model is said to be codenamed ‘Bloom’ with the model number SM-F700F, and feature a 6.7-inch foldable display and a 1-inch cover display. The Galaxy Fold 2 …

The Loupedeck CT is a hardware console for all your creative software

I’m a big fan of the Loupedeck, a hardware console for photographers that gives tactile control over image-editing parameters in Lightroom. It’s a niche, specialized tool that managed to cut my editing time in half. There’s just one problem: it’s pretty much only useful for photography. The company’s newest product, the Loupedeck Creative Tool – or Loupedeck CT for short – solves this problem. With a combination of dials, buttons, and LED touchscreens, the device is able to adapt to a wide variety of software, including Adobe Lightroom Classic, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, Final Cut Pro X, and Ableton Live. Autodesk Fusion… This story continues at The Next Web Read more: thenextweb.com

Ubiquiti’s 2nd Gen Switches released

The 2nd generation unifi switches are out of hardware beta. Link New features include quieter cooling, 4 x SFP+ ports on the 48 model, redundant power supplies with an extra 1U device (ew…). Nice update but one of the top comments says it well I think. They're OK but not great. Disappointing that they don't hit redundant hot-swap PSU baseline. They could have at least done a pair of 40G interfaces on the back for stacking. The PoE budget is very very low across all models. The power redundancy model is bad and something most vendors threw out 10 years ago. For the price point you're really better off going with Cisco 2960-L if we're being honest. Sure you get …

Pulling Display Data off of a Fitness Tracker

[Aaron Christophel] writes in with yet another clever hack for his D6 Fitness Tracker. Using OpenOCD and Pygame, he shows how you can pull data right off the tracker’s screen and sent it to the computer. This one appealed to us for its brevity. First [Aaron] launches the OpenOCD server which connects to the D6. Then, a short Python script connects to the server through telnet, reads the screen data, and uses a look-up table to turn the data into a duplicate display on the PC screen. If you’re more of a visual learner, there’s a demonstration video after the break. The D6 is a popular fitness tracker that’s often re-branded and sold at a very low cost. [Aaron] is …

CHEAP: Good lord, this 11″ MacBook Air with a 128GB SSD is only $300

Welcome to CHEAP, our series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP! It’s my honest opinion that almost anyone could benefit from a second computer. While I think it’s always worth having something powerful and modern for your main machine, there are a lot of times where a second device — and especially a laptop — can be incredibly useful. Whether it’s to do some internet browsing on holiday, check emails on the go, write your diary, or watch videos on something bigger than your phone, there are really no limits to the benefits a secondary… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: MacBook Read more: thenextweb.com

Website accessibility for people with disabilities is still an issue. Here’s why.

It may seem that people with disabilities have made a lot of progress accessing the same resources as people without disabilities. But there’s always more ground to cover. Right now there’s an important battle playing out online and in the courts IRL, where many businesses are questioning whether they have to make their websites and mobile apps accessible — and disabilities rights advocates are vehemently insisting they do.   Recently, the Supreme Court passed on reviewing a case from Domino’s, in which the pizza chain argued that the Americans with Disabilities Act, which protects individuals with disabilities against discrimination, doesn’t apply to online spaces. This all started back in 2016 when a blind man, Guillermo Robles, sued Domino’s when he …
