"The idea is that a smartphone’s power usage depends largely on the distance from the nearest base station. As a user moves, this distance changes, increasing or decreasing the power needed to communicate with a base station."
The way your smartphone uses power provides a simple way to track it, say computer scientists who have developed an app to prove it.

I posted about this yesterday and said then that it is a load of rubbish. Yes your phone uses more power as it moves away from the tower but without access to the towers ID that information is useless other than saying you are moving.

"A teenager not even old enough to drive a car was able to wirelessly connect to a vehicle's internal computer network and control various functions."
With just a little soldering and assembly, a 14-year-old built a device to wirelessly communicate with a vehicle's controller area network (CAN) and remotely start and unlock the vehicle.

"But, given the current state of cybersecurity, we’d argue cyberspace needs independent, neutral, and impartial organizations to restore trust in the Internet and protect the information technology that increasingly supports critical infrastructure, and thru it, human existence."
Let's start a conversation about whether and how a global cyber federation could make cyberspace a more resilient and humanitarian human creation

"Users don’t understand alerts about insecure browsing. Can we fix that?"
A constant refrain in discussions about cybersecurity is the need for better user education and awareness among the general public about computer threats and basic hygiene—not opening attachments from unknown senders, or using “12345” as your password, for instance. But a new study from researchers at Google and the University...

"The security researchers say the bug could lead to database exploits, hijacking and the theft of sensitive information including usernames, hashed passwords, and potentially access to WordPress Secret Keys which could lead to total site takeover."
Summary:A critical security flaw in a plugin called WP-Slimstat is to blame.

"The problem is that this new internet has all the security problems of the old one. Except they are worse, because software vulnerabilities won't just allow people to break into your network - they'll be breaking into your house."
Your refrigerator is sending spam. Your front door is running buggy firmware that tells you the deadbolt is locked (when it's not). And the kid next door is pirating music over your wifi network, thanks to a backdoor in your thermostat app. All the internet-enabled things that make your home "smart" are also turning it into a security nightmare.

"The number of networked things exceeded the number of humans in 2008, according to some estimates, and is expected to rise to 50 billion by 2020. The problem is that we don't view such everyday objects as worthy of the same security protection as our computers and smartphones."

Даже то, что вроде сейчас в прямом интернете ;)) то это муляж программы Google+!, а она тоже ограничена в движении свободы! То, чем система напичкана, всё проявляется при работе (а работает точно по программе: если вижу ошибки исправляет ;)) Так что будем гордиться данным браузером или новым скоростным клиентом?
