Computers are teaching themselves. It’s called "deep learning." It’s a revolution. How it works: http://nvda.ly/JigRA #deeplearning #algorithms

Super Important: Check to see you're not infected

I'm utterly disgusted by the practices of +Lenovo, whom I've been a happy and enthusiastic customer of. My past two laptops have been through them and, by and large, I've been a fairly happy customer. 

That is until I've come to find out that they've been intentionally installing root level certificates into their latest batch of machines (starting around Sept 2014). 

You don't necessarily need to know the ins and outs of why this is bad, but yes... it's extremely bad. It spoofs your secured Internet connection to sites with its own certificate in order to gather information to bring you "an enhanced shopping experience." 

The problem is, it also leaves an enormous gaping hole in your security which is all too easy for anybody on the same network as you, say... at a cafe (where I like to do my work)... dig around your machine and get all sorts of information about you. 

Thankfully, there's been a free tool created by Filippo Valsorda which sniffs to make sure your secure connections are secure. It takes about 10 seconds to load in your browser and just lets you know if SuperFish is detected on your machine. 

Check it out here: https://filippo.io/Badfish/ 

I'm very thankful that I'm not one of the victims of Lenovo, and trust me when I say that I will not be purchasing another machine from them, ever. Not only were they negligent when putting this in, but their response has been deplorable and disgusting. 

Though I'm happy with the hardware on my current Lenovo, I'll gladly fork over a few hundred more dollars in the future to make sure that a company isn't selling its soul and my security to whomever it wants to go to bed with for measly ad revenue.

Also in Slate: How to Tell if You Have Superfish, and How to Kill It Techies Are in an Uproar Over Ultra-Sketchy Adware Pre-Installed on Lenovo Laptops When Lenovo preinstalled Superfish adware on its laptops, it betrayed its customers and sold out their security. It did it for no good...

Meet 6-year-old Maksim. He is staying at a centre for people displaced by the conflict in Ukraine. Maksim doesn’t talk much but, when he does, he talks about his mother, who is currently in his home town, and his 1-month-old sister.

Since the conflict started almost one million people have been internally displaced. To support #children affected, Unicef is providing essential medical supplies, distributing safe drinking water and establishing child-friendly spaces.
