Yahoo's claim ofYahoo has blamed its massive data breach on a "state-sponsored actor." But the company isn't saying why it arrived at that conclusion. Nor has it provided any evidence. The lingering questions are... causing some security experts to wonder why Yahoo isn't offering more details on a hack that stole account information from 500 million users. "I think there's a lot of fishiness going on here," said Michael Lipinski, the chief security strategist at Securonix. Yahoo didn't respond to a request for comment.

In a December 2015 blog post, the company outlined its policy, saying it will warn users when this is suspected.

Whether it's a drone with an attached flamethrower roasting a turkey or a drone being used to deliver Chipotle... burritos to lucky college students, there's no denying that the world of the future will be filled with UAVs. That being the case, there's no reason why drones can't be used for the greater good in addition to being used for quirky activities. Putting this idea into practice, UPS recently began testing the idea of using drones as a means to deliver emergency medical supplies in areas where in-person delivery would either be impossible or would take too long.

Granted, they're now very much the leader in many ways and create understandably fantastic products--but the a99 II's announcement after around four years or more feels a bit like what Canon and Nikon do. Granted, that makes sense in some ways; but Sony is now mostly known for their mirrorless cameras and that begs the question of whether or not the company is too late with this announcement.

So, naturally, the two set out on their path becoming millionaires, scheming ways of locating and extracting the hidden treasure. They knew they couldn't dive deep enough into the cave themselves, so they decided to try a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). But there was nothing on the market that was affordable and accessible.  So David and Eric decided to build their own.

Fishing in the dead pool

TechCrunch - 27 Sep 2016 03:00
Fishing in the dead pool I have used my free time this summer revisiting a childhood passion: fishing. My father loved to fish. He would take me to Central Park’s Ramble and Lake with a hook and lure. I would inevitably... catch something very small, put it in a cup and hope it would survive overnight to show my friends. As I grew older, we graduated to fishing boats launching from City Island and Sheepshead Bay.…

GE, Bosch and open sourcePartnerships that could shape the internet of things for years are being forged just as enterprises fit IoT into their long-term plans. A majority of organizations have included IoT as part of their... strategic plans for the next two to three years, IDC said last week. No one vendor can meet the diverse IoT needs of all those users, so they're joining forces and also trying to foster broader ecosystems. General Electric and Germany's Bosch did both on Monday. The two companies, both big players in industrial IoT, said they will establish a core IoT software stack based on open-source software. They plan to integrate parts of GE's Predix operating system with the Bosch IoT Suite in ways that will make complementary software services from each available on the other.

Could Europa be Spewing Signs of Life?

Physics Buzz - 27 Sep 2016 02:44
In an eagerly anticipated announcement, NASA just revealed new evidence that plumes of water are intermittently expelled from the surface of Europa, one of Jupiter's moons.It's not quite as exciting... as finding little green men skating across Europa's ice-covered surface, but it could be a step in that direction. If alien life exists in our solar system, we'll probably find it on Europa. Miles beneath its icy surface there is a liquid, saltwater ocean that could harbor life. If that's the case, and if water sometimes spews out through the ice, that means we can study the water and look for signs of life without drilling through an unknown number of miles of ice to reach the ocean. The puzzling, fascinating surface of Jupiter's icy moon Europa, made from images taken by NASA's Galileo...
