My take on internet security: Your data is always at risk. With some awareness and minimal effort, drastically reduce the hacking odds
With billions of web users, and more coming online every day, cyber-crime has been skyrocketing. You have heard of high-profile hacks and stolen data...

Is there anyone in my contacts working on Google+? We keep getting Google+ bot calls which say that they want to verify something. After pressing "1" for having the option to talk to a "human", the call is terminated, and we have no contact info. Thanks!

NVIDIA pokes Samsung Mobile and Qualcomm in the eye. If it wins, it could change their future. If they don't, what will happen? When NVIDIA said that it wanted to license its IP, I didn't imagine that something like this would come so fast and so strong. Let's wait and see.

For all the stories of Black Ops and espionage, this certainly takes the cake – at least for the month of June. If Timothy Ray Murray is...

My take on the #galaxys6   and S6 Edge, based on a few hours worth of tinkering with it. I'll update the page with final benchmarks and more polished photo samples, but I think that you'll get some good info about Samsung's latest. Questions? Fire away.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the most anticipated Android Smartphone of the past few months and after a huge flow of rumors, leaks and teasers, we...

Happy Birthday Linux!
 
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, LINUX!

From August 25, 1991:

Hello everybody out there using minix -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting to get ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things).

I've currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work. This implies that I'll get something practical within a few months, and I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them 

Linus

Bring DSLR-quality photos to phones by using Computational Photography instead of a bigger lens/sensor? Movidius thinks it can with its Myriad-2 chip.
Earlier this year, Movidius came out with Myriad-1, its first “Vision Processing Unit”. It was adopted by Google for its Project Tango...

Does San Francisco have a real legal case, or does it just want to protect its $130M/year parking meters/tickets business? Why would telling someone where there's an available parking spot be illegal?
Finding parking in a busy city can be a headache, particularly if you’re planning to go right in the heart of the city. Some startups have...

Apparently the spots are auctioned off to the highest bidder...which shouldn't really be done, the spots are publicly owned...
