Fake news fallout: Facebook starts asking users if headlines are accurate

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 07:37:00 -0800

Facebook has a big problem with fake news stories that are spread on the social network, and now it’s hoping users can help. People are reporting that Facebook is asking them survey questions to help determine whether news headlines are accurate.

It’s not clear how many people are included in this survey or what, exactly, Facebook plans to do with the information it collects. Nevertheless, this appears to be part of Facebook’s plans to deal with the issues of clickbait and fake news that are plaguing the social network.

Dead Rising 4 impressions: 'Tis the season to BBQ zombies with your flaming sword

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 06:42:00 -0800

Dead Rising 4 reviews appeared yesterday, but you’d be forgiven if you thought the game was a console exclusive. So far as I can tell nobody received access to the PC version until...well, yesterday morning. It does exist though, and it releases today on the Windows 10 Store. No, not Steam. Just the Windows 10 Store.

I fully expect some of you just closed out of this tab with disgust, though it’s worth noting that Dead Rising is a Capcom property, not first-party Microsoft, so I wouldn't be surprised to see a full Steam release in about six months. (See also: Quantum Break.)

GoDaddy offers $1.8 billion for Host Europe

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 06:13:14 -0800

U.S. web-hosting giant GoDaddy has agreed to buy German company Host Europe Group in a move that will take the number of domain names it manages to 70 million.

Host Europe, based in Germany, has 1.7 million customers and manages 7 million domain names, while GoDaddy has 14 million customers and 63 million domain names under management.

The acquisition values Host Europe at €1.69 billion (US$1.79 billion) and will make GoDaddy market leader in small business cloud services in Europe, the U.S. company said Tuesday. It expects to close the deal during the second quarter of 2017.

Both companies focus on services to small businesses. A deal will allow them to scale up existing systems to sell one another's products to existing customers, GoDaddy said.

Cisco Meraki sees the hotel of the future in its new Wi-Fi gear

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 06:00:03 -0800

The days when hotel Wi-Fi just connected travelers to the Internet are going away. Now it can be part of a system that helps give guests more personalized service – if they don’t mind the hotel tracking their location on the property.

The new MR30H access point from Cisco’s Meraki division will work with Bluetooth beacons - small wireless location devices that stores and other businesses are starting to use so they can tell where people are.

The benefits, as long as guests are willing to opt in, could include things like having an attendant walk up and offer a drink or a towel as you go out to the pool, thanks to your frequent-guest status, said Pablo Estrada, Meraki’s director of marketing.

Google Wifi review: Mesh networking made easy

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 06:00:00 -0800

Google delivers much more router than you’d expect for $129, but just one Google Wifi won’t be enough for most people. Unless you live in a studio apartment, you’ll want to avail yourself of two or three of these devices so you can deploy a mesh network. The master router and a single node probably would be adequate for the 2800-square-foot home we tested in, but adding a third node delivered a significant boost to the farthest corners of the house. Google encourages this approach by offering a substantial per-unit discount when you order a three-pack for $299.

Google Wifi is a dual-band router, of course, operating on both the 2.4 and 5GHz frequency bands. Google describes it as an “AC1200 2x2 Wave 2” device, which means it supports two spatial streams simultaneously, and that it delivers maximum theoretical throughput of 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 867Mbps on the 5GHz band.

How to quickly use today's date as the title of a OneNote page

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 05:00:00 -0800

OneNote is a great tool for creating notes, to-do lists, and even journaling. The problem is, those are just the kind of things you want to title by date (or at least have the date as part of the title), and then organize them in descending order. OneNote does not make this process easy. You could just type the date in every time, but that’s not ideal.

Here are two strategies for dealing with this problem.

Tell-tale toys open bedroom door to strangers, consumer groups warn

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 04:50:24 -0800

Internet-connected toys subject children to hidden marketing messages and allow strangers to converse with them from a distance, consumer rights groups say.

The groups highlighted breaches of security and basic consumer rights in two toys in particular, the i-Que robot and the My Friend Cayla doll.

The toys connect via Bluetooth to smartphone apps that record children speaking and transmit the recordings to a voice recognition service provider in the U.S., Nuance Communications, allowing the toys to appear to converse with the children.

But, the consumer groups say, there is no authentication or pairing of the Bluetooth connections, allowing strangers within radio range of the toys to detect them and connect with them to carry on a conversation with the children directly. Furthermore, they say, voice recordings that could contain personal information are transmitted to Nuance without explicit consent, and the toys inject messages into their conversations repeatedly endorsing Disney products.

Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and YouTube will share terror content info

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 04:07:00 -0800

Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google’s YouTube have agreed to share with one another identifying digital information of violent terror content that they find on their platforms.

When they remove “violent terrorist imagery or terrorist recruitment videos or images” from their platforms, the companies will include in a shared industry database the hashes, or unique digital fingerprints, of the content.

Other participants can use the shared hashes to help identify matching content on their hosted consumer platforms, review against their respective policies and definitions, and remove the content when appropriate, according to a statement by the companies on Monday.

Microsoft's new Zo chatbot dodges politics, doesn't always make sense

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 04:05:00 -0800

Microsoft is taking another shot at giving users a friendly AI-driven bot conversation partner. On Monday, the company released Zo, a chatbot that users can converse with on Kik, the popular messaging platform. 

Zo is a follow-up to Tay, the tech giant’s first foray into friendly, English-speaking chatbots. It’s clear that the company has learned from its first attempt, when the friendly chatbot was turned into a font of white supremacist propaganda by malicious users. 

In contrast, Zo adamantly refuses to discuss political matters. Even a casual mention of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s conversation with the leader of Taiwan led the bot to say that it wasn’t interested in discussing politics.

Privacy groups urge investigation of 'internet of toys'

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:05:02 -0800

Privacy groups in the U.S. and seven European countries will ask consumer protection agencies to investigate the maker of two internet-connected toys for violations of laws designed to protect children's privacy.

The complaints are scheduled to be filed Tuesday against Genesis Toys, maker of the My Friend Cayla and I-Que Intelligence Robot toys, and Nuance Communications, the provider of voice-recognition software for the products.

The complaints, to be filed in the U.S., France, Sweden, Greece, Belgium, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Norway, may be only the beginning of actions taken by consumer and privacy groups targeting a lucrative slice of the internet of things market, the so-called internet of toys.

AT&T means business with a 5G trial at Intel

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 17:53:02 -0800

5G and its multi-gigabit cellular speeds probably won’t hit the market until 2020, but one corporate customer of AT&T is about to taste what it may be like.

AT&T is launching its first customer trial of 5G technologies – the first 5G trial for any business user in the U.S., the carrier believes. But this is no average customer that happened to draw a golden ticket. The trial will take place at an Intel facility in Austin, Texas. It will last about a month, use just one cell site, and cover an area with a radius of approximately 300 meters, AT&T said.

How to get a word count with Microsoft Office for iPad

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 16:55:00 -0800

A reader asks: 

“How can I see the word count of a document when using Microsoft Office for iPad?”

In the Office for iPad app, open the document you want to see the word count for, and do the following:

  • Tap the “Review” tab in the Ribbon.
  • Tap the second icon from the left—it has three long lines, three short lines, and “123.”

Tapping this icon will reveal the number of pages, a word count, and the number of characters (with and without spaces).

How to password protect a PDF before sending it by email

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:45:00 -0800

A reader asks:

“Is there any way to password-protect and lock a sensitive PDF file before sending it as an attachment through email? I cannot afford Adobe Acrobat Pro and free primopdf didn’t work for me. Any help will be appreciated!”

The quickest way to do this is to ZIP the PDF file and protect the ZIP file, or use Microsoft Office’s built-in encryption tools to create a password. If you use Outlook, you can use Adobe Acrobat IX to password protect PDFs. You can also try programs like NitroPDF and PDF Encrypt to set the password protection to your PDF file without Acrobat.

How to get rid of image burn-in on an LCD display

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:05:00 -0800

A reader asks:

“I use a 32-inch LCD TV for my home office display, connected to my PC using HDMI. I also use it for my PS3 and Wii to prevent a Shining ‘all work and no play’-type incident, so it gets quite a lot of use every day. I left town over the weekend and unthinkingly left a fixed image on the display. When I got back, I found that the image had burned in. I thought LCD displays wouldn’t do that, but I was clearly mistaken. The ocean image that was displayed left shadows of the waves across the display. Is there a way to get rid of this problem, or at least minimize it?”

It was a widespread myth for a while that transmissive displays like LCDs weren’t subject to image persistence (a.k.a. burn-in), but it is more accurate to say that they are less subject to burn-in than phosphor-based displays such as CRTs and color plasma. The good news is that on an LCD it can usually be reversed but on a CRT it is usually permanent.

Obama's cybersecurity plan faces uncertainty with Trump

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:01:00 -0800

U.S. consumers could one day see cybersecurity ratings on technology products, much like today's EnergyStar ratings, if the findings of a government-sponsored cybersecurity commission are heeded. Although like much in Washington right now, a lot depends on  incoming U.S. President Donald Trump and his views on cybersecurity are far from clear.

The report, published on Friday by the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity, also suggests usernames and passwords are replaced with something more secure and wants 150,000 cybersecurity experts trained over the next four years to help the U.S. defend against hacking threats.  

The commission has the support of President Obama and began its work in February this year, with executives at Microsoft, IBM, Uber and former U.S. government officials. However, in releasing its findings, Obama acknowledged it’ll be up to the next president and U.S. Congress to more fully implement what the commission has recommended.

Start hoarding SSDs: Prices are expected to spike as supply gets tight

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:12:00 -0800

Time to add SSDs to your hoarding list. Citing a transition in technology and increased demand, NAND prices are expected to begin heading north next year, analysts say.

NAND chips revenue had already increased by 19.6 percent due to increased demand in the third quarter of this year and will be even tighter as we close the year out, wrote Sean Yang, research director of DRAMeXchange. 

Part of the tight supply is attributed to an industry transition from older, less dense 2D NAND to 3D NAND. That’s reduced supply at a time when consumption continues to go up to feed smartphones, PCs, and all things digital.

“3D NAND is still ramping up at most suppliers, and as a consequence, there is an expected shortage in flash memory that will occur in the not too distant future—not sure if this is the next few months, that depends upon demand,” said Thomas Coughlin of Storage Visions. “However flash memory for enterprise applications has special requirements and may be in short supply.”

How to fix a limited connectivity problem on a Windows 7 PC

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 13:49:00 -0800

A reader asks:

“When connecting my personal laptop (which is running Windows 7) to my office’s wireless network, I keep getting a “limited connectivity error.” I can connect fine at home. What can I do to resolve this?”

To start, try the following steps:

  • Go to Control Panel\Network > Internet\Network > Sharing Center.
  • From the left pane, choose “manage wireless networks,” then delete your network connection.
  • After that, choose “adapter properties.”
  • Under “This connection uses the following items,” uncheck “AVG network filter driver” and retry connecting to the network. (Yours might read “Hotspot Shield” instead; uncheck this option.) It will work immediately, even without restarting the system.

If that doesn’t work, try these steps:

HP shutting down default FTP, Telnet access to network printers

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 13:27:00 -0800

Security experts consider the aging FTP and Telnet protocols unsafe, and HP has decided to clamp down on access to networked printers through the remote-access tools.

Some of HP's new business printers will, by default, be closed to remote access via protocols like FTP and Telnet. However, customers can activate remote printing access through those protocols if needed.

"HP has started the process of closing older, less-maintained interfaces including ports, protocols and cipher suites" identified by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology as less than secure, the company said in a statement.

In addition, HP also announced firmware updates to existing business printers with improved password and encryption settings, so hackers can't easily break into the devices.

AWS wants to dominate beyond the public cloud with Lambda updates

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:56:36 -0800

Amazon Web Services' big Re:Invent conference in Las Vegas brought a plethora of new features and upgrades to its cloud platform. But there was one key set of upgrades that set the stage for Amazon's expansion outside its own public cloud data centers.

Two years ago, AWS CEO Andy Jassy made a big splash at Re:Invent when he introduced Lambda, a service that lets developers write snippets of code that execute in response to event triggers. Amazon does the work to provision servers to run that code, so developers don't have to think about the infrastructure overhead.

$49 Windows tablets, $1,000 PC discounts, and 50% off Xbox games highlight Microsoft deals

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:50:00 -0800

Black Friday and Cyber Monday may have come and gone. But that hasn’t stopped Microsoft from publishing some fairly amazing deals over the next 12 days, half of which you’ll need to visit a brick-and-mortar Microsoft store to score.

Since the deals kick off on December 5, you have until Monday to plan your purchases. And you will need to plan them, too: The 12 Days of Deals unlock each day and are only good “while supplies last.” Naturally, you’ll have to line up at a physical Microsoft Store if you want to score a “doorbuster.” 

Some of the deals are well worth the trouble. Microsoft will offer up to $1,000 off on select PCs on two separate days, for example, and there are a number of half-off deals on Xbox One games, too. Another intriguing deal is a $49 Windows tablet on Friday, December 9. Microsoft’s best deals, however, are shrouded in mystery: The company isn’t revealing which tablet will be $49, or what PCs it will be discounting by $1,000.

Amazon's new Amazon Go convenience store will let you take what you want

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 11:27:00 -0800

Amazon.com is still figuring out how to use robots to fill store shelves, but it's about done with clerks. Next year, the company will open a convenience store in Seattle where shoppers can walk in, take what they want -- and leave.

The Amazon Go store is on the corner of 7th Avenue and Blanchard Street in Seattle, in the heart of Amazon's new campus development and a few blocks from the company's headquarters.

Amazon wants people to walk in to the store and then just walk out with what they want.

It's not giving the goods away, though.

To figure out who to charge, and how much, Amazon will identify shoppers by scanning QR codes on their phones as they walk in, and use sensors and computer vision technology to determine which items they take.

Google's Trusted Contacts pings your loved ones when you need them most

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 09:44:00 -0800

Google’s Android services already work overtime to make our life easier, but its new app may actually be able to save it. Called Trusted Contacts, it connects you with the closest people in your life to allow them to find you in an emergency.

To set up the app, you simply need to designate the people you would like to share your location with, and Google will ping them with your request. Unlike Familio or GeoZilla, however, Trusted Contacts isn’t for meet-ups. The app is primarily designed for situations where you need immediate assistance from your loved ones (or they need yours).
