This is a fantastic article explaining just how bad the Lenovo scandal really is. The worst part is that the story isn't even exaggerating things.
Also in Slate: How to tell if you have Superfish, and how to kill it. When Lenovo preinstalled Superfish adware on its laptops, it betrayed its customers and sold out their security. It did it for no good reason, and it may not even have known what it was doing....

+Jeff Weiss​ the spyware has two separate issues, both allowing this. First of all, the private key is embedded in the application. It needs to, so that it can re-sign all secure sites you go to. All installations of this tool use the same certificate. Thus, all you have to do is to sign your fake site using this key, and you'll pass for authentic to these affected users. Also, if they removed the software, the root certificate will still be installed, and thus still affected by this attack.

That said, they made a second mistake, which is that they will re-sign any certificate, regardless of whether it was valid or not, so you don't even have to target these users specifically. All you have to do is to self-sign any site, and they will appear authentic to one of the affected users.

This looks nice. Definitely nicer than the Apple watch. But, just wait for the reviewers who will proclaim that Apple has invented something that no one has done before.

That said, I still haven't seen them try to explain how a square watch is nicer than a round one.
 
New Technology: The all-metal luxury Android Wear LG Watch Urbane
LG Electronics (LG) will unveil its first all-metal luxury Android Wear device, LG Watch Urbane, at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. As its name suggests, the smartwatch is designed for a sophisticated and cosmopolitan wearer that delivers unparalleled technology and performance. LG Watch Urbane is the perfect device for wearers looking to add both style and high-tech flare to their everyday lives. 

The LG Watch Urbane follows closely in the footsteps of the LG Watch R, the first smartwatch with a full circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display, which LG launched in October 2014. While the LG Watch R was designed with the active user in mind, the LG Watch Urbane is more formal with a thinner profile making it perfect for either men or women. Resembling a luxury timepiece, LG combined a classic design and innovative features to add style and convenience to everyday life while raising the already high standards set by its predecessor.

The LG Watch Urbane is crafted around the same 1.3-inch full circle P-OLED display as the LG Watch R but features a narrower bezel that gives it sleeker lines. The LG Watch Urbane has all of the hallmarks of a fine watch, making it the perfect fashion accessory. Its stainless steel body is available in polished silver and gold finish and is complemented by a beautifully stitched natural leather strap for a more classic look. The strap can be replaced with any 22mm wide band to suit the occasion or the wearer’s mood. Powering all of this is an intuitive touch-based user interface that makes the LG Watch Urbane compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 and above. 

Like the G Watch R, LG’s latest Android Wear device includes a photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor that can measure a wearer’s heart rate and average pulse during exercise. Always-On ambient mode shows the time on the display at all times in dimmed mode, saving battery life. 

“The LG Watch Urbane’s classic design and smart features make it the perfect smartwatch to complement our G Watch and G Watch R, which were designed as more casual and active devices,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “LG Watch Urbane is an important part of our strategy to develop wearable devices that are worn and viewed as everyday accessories, not electronic gadgets.”

Additional details including price will be announced in local markets at the time of availability.

Key Specifications:
Chipset: 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 400 
Operating System: Android Wear™
Display: 1.3-inch P-OLED Display (320 x 320, 245ppi)
Size: 45.5 x 52.2 x 10.9mm 
Memory: 4GB eMMC / 512MB LPDDR2
Battery: 410mAh
Sensors: 9-Axis (Gyro / Accelerometer / Compass) / Barometer / PPG (Heart Rate Sensor)
Colors: Gold / Silver
Other: Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)

This was pretty good, despite what is seems like by just reading the headline.
An intrepid citizen journalist in Blount County, Alabama posted a video to Facebook on Wednesday reporting on the changes to his state after legalization of gay marriage.

How about that. Sighs like this are actually not that rare here, which can be seen as surprising given just how expensive cars are here (among other things, there is a 100% tax on new cars).

It's remarkable that a densely populated city such as Singapore has this path leading all the way downtown.

This is an old railroad track that has been converted into a very long park. Hopefully they'll keep it this way for as long as possible instead of using the space for buildings.

Very cool. I'll definitely try to watch this show.
 
Awesome! "SINGAPORE: A new documentary by Channel NewsAsia offers insight into the lesser known side of Singapore - its rich and diverse wildlife. Narrated by natural history legend David Attenborough and filmed over a year, the two-episode Wild City is the channel's first documentary on the wildlife here.
[...]
The first episode of Wild City will air next Sunday (Mar 15), 8pm on Channel NewsAsia while the second episode will be screened the following Sunday (Mar 22), 8pm."
Natural history legend David Attenborough will narrate the two-episode Wild City, which is Channel NewsAsia's first documentary on Singapore's wildlife.

+John Baez +Elias Mårtenson More details in this Today article [ http://www.todayonline.com/entertainment/television/getting-wild-city ]:

"The first part, Urban Wild, will look at the built-up surroundings - from the city centre to the suburban areas - where various animals and plants have adopted as their home, as Singapore’s landscape rapidly changes. It uncovers several hidden gems, from troops of macaques that straddle forest and condominium-life, civets that take up residencies in roof cavities, reticulated pythons that hunt for their prey in the drains and the world’s first family of wild otters breeding right in the heart of the city in Marina Bay.
[...]
Hidden Wild, the second part of the series, takes a peek at overlooked, tucked-away areas of the island that are now home to an astonishing variety of creatures. These areas include the coastal wetlands, abandoned buildings and offshore islands, which animals such as colugos (gliding mammals also known as flying lemurs - although they aren’t true lemurs), fiddler crabs and Singapore’s oldest predators – the crocodiles."

My neighbour found this in the garden. It's about 20 cm across, including the legs. How can I figure out the species?

I'll watch this. Mainly because it seems to take place here in Singapore. Last time an action movie took place here was the Bollywood movie Krrish.

This is the computer where I really got started. I had used a Commodore 64 before, but with the Atari ST I really got into demo programming and really understanding really low level development. What is said in the video is very true, that the computer was both powerful but also simple enough that a developer could understand everything about it.

The game that is shown in the video was developed by people that I knew back in the days. Very nice guys. They also made other games and demos worth watching.

Having originally planned to visit another restaurant that happened to be closed, we ended up going to this place instead. It turned out to be a very lucky thing, since the food was very nice. I'm not an expert in Thai food, but it definitely had a more "authentic" taste than most other Thai places that I go to. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, and will definitely come back.
