The Supreme Court today announced it would hear the Justice Department‘s complaint against Microsoft concerning the company‘s refusal to comply with warrants demanding it turn over emails residing on foreign servers. The implications of this case could determine the future of individual online privacy, and US-based cloud storage companies. The 2nd Court of Appeals last year ruled Microsoft had no onus to turn over emails residing on s
To say the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal has been making waves would be to downplay it. Ever since the story in the New Yorker where the women who‘d encountered him spoke out, others on social media have been speaking out. As the stories rolled in from other women who‘ve been victimized by Weinstein, others also spoke up about their own experiences with sexual assault and harassment - men and women alike. Now those stories a

Huawei may not be the biggest name in the West, but it recently surpassed Apple as the world‘s second biggest smartphone manufacturer. Now it‘s announcing two new flagships, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, its first real entry into the bezel-less design trend that‘s made 2017 a wonderful year for smartphone design. I had the chance to go hands on with the devices at a small preview event in New York, and there‘s a lot to like
Huawei has been making noise for months about its upcoming flagship/iPhone killer, the Mate 10. At a launch event in Munich, it unveiled three variants of the flagship handset: the 5.9-inch Mate 10, the 6-inch Mate 10 Pro (pictured above) and a Porsche Design edition of the Pro. There are a number of reasons why Huawei thinks it can rival not just premium Android phones, but also the latest iPhones, with its new lineup. For starters, all three du
Looking to step up your flirting game? This device, called the Ripple, can tell when someone‘s staring at you via two cameras on your shoulders and notifies you by sending a shiver down your back. The Ripple was invented by four students from the Royal College of Arts in London as a conceptual piece. Don‘t expect this thing to replace Tinder any time soon, so far the team has only made two working prototypes.
The world of online trading has a lot more to offer than just buying and selling assets online. As it turns out, some traders earn extra income by allowing others to copy what they do. Day trading is hardly a new practice. Ever since the Internet revolution made trading available to almost anyone, many have turned to the financial markets, trading and investing from home some even earning a steady living. However, the online trading realm has ev
It seems the authorities are not the only onesgoing after dark web drug buyers. Someone is threatening to doxx (the act of revealing potentially incriminating and identifiable information about another individual) dark web users unless they pay off a small ransom fee in Bitcoin. The news comes from Redditor going by the name of StrangerDanger420, who shared images of the blackmail letter with the rest of the dark web community. ‘[C]ongrats
Earlier today, reports emerged that the popular WPA2 Wi-Fi encryption protocol was fundamentally flawed, and could allow an attacker to intercept and read traffic sent across a wireless network. Now, details are emerging about the scale and severity of the problem. The attack known as a key retransmission attack (or KRACK) sees a malicious actor trick a victim into using a compromised encryption key. Troublingly, Linux and Android-based users a
Taking a cue from Facebook, earlier this year LinkedIn redesigned its website to make it a bit less confusing and a tad more suitable for social interactions. But it seems Facebook too is paying attention to LinkedIn. The social media giant is currently testing a new Resume / CV feature that lets users share their work experience with their friends. The new addition expands on the standard ‘Work and education‘ section, but won‘t
On a visit to India over the weekend, Apple‘s senior vice president for internet software and services, Eddy Cue, told the Economic Times that the company ‘absolutely wants to bring Apple Pay to market here.‘ That‘s good news for local fans of the brand, and seeing how Apple has focusing more on India in recent times with the opening of a handset assembling facility, lower prices on older phones and quicker launches of new
Sorry to start off your week with some bad news: the WPA2 encryption protocol that protects your Wi-Fi router and connected devices from intrusions is rumored to have been cracked. That means that a hacker who is within physical range of your home or office network could crack your Wi-Fi password, listen in on your internet activity and intercept unsecured or unencrypted data streams (such as a password entered on a non-HTTPS site, or video from

Like many of their design choices, Apple‘s recent decision to swap out their much-used Touch ID feature in the new iPhone X in favor of facial recognition software - what they‘re calling Face ID - has caused a lot of chatter and debate. There are many questions around what a future that relies on ‘selfie security‘ will look like - but one issue that is certain to get a lot more play is that of racial bias in the Face ID so
Cryptocurrencies present a compelling solution for more democratization in the investment space. While the financial services industry plays an essential role in the funding and creation of new ventures, these firms are monoliths and the barriers to entry for new players are too costly. Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are going to change all of that. But first, regulation of ICOs is needed, because even without government oversight, the core blockc
