Shapeshift fixed a vulnerability in its KeepKey wallet with a firmware update in February.The attack the researchers developed against KeepKey wallets took time to prepare, but with enough planning a hacker could have quickly grabbed a target's PIN in the field.
A new line of evidence, first announced last summer, suggests that the cosmic expansion rate may fall much closer to the rate predicted by early-universe measurements and the standard theory of cosmology.
So, for a data market to succeed, individual data creators—whether enterprises or consumers—will need tools to set their own privacy terms and conditions.
Yet when faced with declining sales and overall economic weakness in the years following the Great Recession of 2008–2009, Best Buy and other chains buckled under the pressure and lost sight of what they could do that pointing and clicking could not.
A significant increase in used EV sales indicates not just that more people want to go electric, but that, nearly a decade after the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt first went on sale, battery-powered rides have been around long enough, and become popular enough, to become affordable and widely available to secondhand drivers.“While EVs are far from mainstream, we’re starting to see them expand past the bleeding edgers,” says Karl Brauer, an industry analyst with Kelley Blue Book.
The experiment was too simplistic to be useful for banks, but it’s a promising proof of concept; once bigger and smoother-running quantum computers are available, the researchers say, they hope to execute the algorithm faster than conventional machines.
Amazon is so new, and so dramatic in its speed and scale and aggression, that we can easily forget how many of the things it’s doing are actually very old. Amazon is systematically going through every branch of the idea tree around what retail is, and doing it without any pride.
Wayfair Walkout, Facebook Data Value, and More News. Tech employees are taking a stand against migrant detention centers; a proposal asking tech companies to disclose the value of your data; and a live reading of the Mueller report.
On Monday, when Senator Mark Warner (D-Virginia) announced a proposal to force tech companies to tell users the value of their data, he was slightly more generous, ballparking the average at $5 a month.
With that, I can find a force-acceleration equation for both masses. With an accelerating mass, the net force is NOT zero. Notice that if the two masses have the same value, the acceleration would be zero meters per second squared (that's good).
He’s applying that approach to more standard issue problems, like labor, climate change, and the economy, but giving them a decidedly tech-forward approach: how (and why) we should define robots, what use might geoengineering have in saving the planet, and should the government embrace universal basic income and give every American a $1,000 check.
If sustained this may gradually wean the rural population even in disadvantaged regions like Brazil’s Northeast off their dependence on state support.One thing has not changed in my evaluation of the productive alliance concept three years after my first visit: the role of local leadership.
I'm going to assume the floor is made of concrete and that the gravitational force on Vision (due to his large mass) is enough to exceed the compressive strength of concrete to initiate the break.What is "compressive strength"?
GOP Email Hack Shows How Bad Midterm Election Meddling GotUS President Donald Trump delivers remarks at the National Republican Congressional Committee in March.Kevin Dietsch/Getty ImagesThough sporadic hacker intrusions and phishing campaigns targeted political entities in the lead-up to November's midterm elections, things seemed pretty quiet overall on the election-meddling front in the US.
He previously held counterterrorism and intelligence roles for the US government overseas and domestically.As government-backed hackers in Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea continue to infiltrate and attack American companies, it’s often private cybersecurity firms, rather than the US government, that are publicly assigning blame.
So LA is doing what most people do when the going gets tough: They lean on their friends.Los Angeles announced today it is teamed up with 30 US cities total to collectively work for better deals on electric cars (18 of them have committed to purchases already as 'founding cities'). Maybe you don't want your city to switch over to electric cars.
Except if you don’t reduce the number of trees, and if you then also try to put out every fire, and allow runaway climate change to make droughts and heat waves worse … the boreal forests of North America will continue to literally go up in smoke, erasing the landscape and spewing climate-changing carbon into the atmosphere.Everyone pretty much agrees on how to deal with our new Burning World: Stop trying to suppress fire and start managing that land to restore a more natural (less intense) fire regime.
Based on the hazard map, community members have now identified and proposed Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) measures designed to mitigate the effects of specific natural hazards. Table 1: Combined community-proposed disaster risk mitigation measures in Guldara
It was a rough bout of illness while she and her colleagues were studying corals in Indonesia that first focused Nature Conservancy NatureNet Science Fellow Joleah Lamb’s attention on the disease-mitigating possibilities of seagrass meadows.
The big takeaway: The countries with the most to gain — in terms of risk reduction — from reef conservation and restoration of their coral reefs are Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Mexico, and Cuba, where annual expected flood savings exceed $400M for each nation.
