This is annoying.
The new 2015 releases of #Adobe products is out. One of the cool new features in Camera Raw is the haze filter. It does a good job cutting through hazy skies: good for surf spray also for you surfing photogs. Some people think it's just a way of combining contrast, clarity, and vibrance, but you can't get the same results with the old controls. It does shift the highlights and shadows yellow/blue at times. One way around that is to create one image and use it just as a luminosity layer, then use another layer as the color layer. Using L*A*B* color works well doing this. Here are some samples of the haze filter and it combined with the L*A*B* technique I just mentioned.
Researchers demonstrated they could access a Google account login when on the same WiFi network as an internet-enabled refrigerator. The fridge displays the owner's Google Calendar.
They incorrectly implement SSL: when presented with an incorrect certificate, they fail to validate it. This lets someone on your network -- say, someone who's broken your wifi password -- to get your Google login. With more work, the researchers believe they could overwrite the fridge's firmware and the mobile app that lets you control it.
I think the bottom line is that if you do buy a Smart allowance, think twice before letting it sign in to any important account, at least until they can demonstrate better security.
