Ever had an affair on Ashley Madison?

mzl.bjttmrvoSome months back we heard that Ashley Madison has been hacked and nearly 10-gigabytes of stolen data had been stolen. The dating site for cheaters admitted member email addresses, credit card transactions, and even profiles had been compromised. 

The data has now been released, as the demands of the hackers were not met, and can be found on the dark web. Those who have downloaded are reporting there is a lot of interesting material. One analysis of the data stolen found it contains almost 15,000 military or government email addresses. The hackers demand to take down the site fell on deaf ears and there is now a real possibility that some families could be destroyed.

Calling themselves the Impact Team, the hackers said:

We have explained the fraud, deceit, and stupidity of ALM and their members. Now everyone gets to see their data … Keep in mind the site is a scam with thousands of fake female profiles. See ashley madison fake profile lawsuit; 90-95% of actual users are male. Chances are your man signed up on the world’s biggest affair site, but never had one. He just tried to. If that distinction matters. …

Too bad for those men, they’re cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion. Too bad for ALM, you promised secrecy but didn’t deliver.…

Controversial outcome, they carried it through, true to their word and elements of people’s privacy will be exposed. Some might say for the greater good. Here’s a screenshot of the full statement included with the release:

Google will sort your home WiFi with the Onhub

CaptureRestarting you router is a given these days, with the amount of conflicts an traffic the router is contractually having to deal with it is no wonder it just gives up after a while. It will then take the flack from the owner as they stomp across and hit a button to get things going again. It’s happened to us all and those Router Gremlins are a real pain in the backside. Thankfully it looks like companies that know what they are doing are promising to tackle this head on and produce better results than the currently generation of WiFi access points and routers.

Google is presenting the Onhub, a $200 router that promises the world and we can only cross our fingers and hope it delivers.

Specced out like so:

  • made by TP-Link
  • IPQ8064 Dual Core 1.4GHz (same SoC as the R7500 Nighthawk from Netgear)
  • 1GB DDR3L RAM
  • 4GB internal storage, 8MB “NOR flash”
  • one USB3.0 port
  • built-in 3W speaker
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • ZigBee/Thread 802.15.4 conformance (?????)
  • AC1900 tier
  • 13 antennas: 3×3 for 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n, 3×3 for 5GHz 802.11a/n/ac, 1×1 auxiliary 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
  • gigabit WAN port, and only one gigabit LAN port

Stay tuned for an ASUS take on things. Their RT-AC87 model looks to be doing something similar.

 

We’re streaming and sharing in new ways our old routers were never built to handle. Meet OnHub, a new router from Google built for all the ways you Wi-Fi.

Will there be a 5 inch iPhone 6C?

iphone-6s-5-inchA refresh is on the way for the iPhone and as usual there js little in the way of official details. Expected are two variants with 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays. However there are reports of an iPhone 6c being in the works, and more recently a suggested rumour emerged that the 6c will be built by Foxconn with a 4-inch display.

However, a more recent rumours of a 5-inch model being manufactured by Foxconn are making the rounds. According to the Foxconn insider the 5-incher will apparently rock an 8 MP camera, a dual-LED flash and powered by an A9 processor. A sketch depicting the alleged 5-inch iPhone 6s model has popped up from the Foxconn insider who was not able to provide a photo of the device due to Apples security measures.

Could Apple be planning four devices?

Might the UK have an Electric Highway?

55d2850e04d0aElectric Motorways that allow electric cars to charge whilst on the move are to be tested in the UK this year. The 18-month scheme, announced by Highways England, will ”test how the technology would work safely and effectively on the country’s motorways and major A roads. The concept of wirelessly charging technology under the road is used to power buses in Korea. However, these tests in Britain are said to be the first of their kind. 

The potential to recharge low emission vehicles on the move offers exciting possibilities. The government is already committing £500 million over the next five years to keep Britain at the forefront of this technology, which will help boost jobs and growth in the sector. As this study shows, we continue to explore options on how to improve journeys and make low-emission vehicles accessible to families and businesses.

Transport Minister Andrew Jones

If successful, the new roads will mean that electric cars could be driven for long distances without the need to stop and charge their batteries. Although, it’ll require Highways England to install plug-in charging points every 20 miles on the motorway network, something which they’ve committed to doing. The days of autonomous electric cars could be here sooner rather than later.

LG Google Nexus 5 2015 5.2” Stand Holder Shockproof

l2Pzo3LAliexpress.com has listed a Shockproof Stand Holder for the new LG Google Nexus 5 2015 edition, including a device in the image not unlike that we say recently. I wold imagine the listing will probably disappear quite quickly so I have persevered the images from the listing in this post, you know, for science. Case manufacturers get the dimensions from Google a little early so they can design and manufacture their cases and be ready for the phone launch. This is how we knew the dimensions and the position of each component a few weeks ago.

Power Bars from any other batch aren’t affected by this recall.

It’s our intention to replace these chargers once we’ve completed our investigations; we’ll be in touch once these have been concluded. We’re really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
What’s the issue with batch E1-06, and how do I identify my device?

We’ve identified a very small number of incidents where Power Bars have overheated, all of which relate to batch E1-06, and could pose a fire safety risk. EE Power Bars can be identified by a code found on the side of the device. For the recalled models this code will read ‘E1-06′ (see image below).

What should I do?

We’re requesting that customers stop using Power Bars from batch E1-06, and unplug them from handsets and the mains. They should return the Power Bar to a local EE store at their earliest convenience.

How do I get a replacement?

Customers returning batch E1-06 will be issued with a replacement once our investigations are concluded. The swap program has been temporarily suspended while we complete this recall process and restock.

How do I know the other batches are safe?

We’ve not seen any issues of overheating with other batches and they meet all safety standards. Here is some general advice on use of portable chargers.
