  1. I was hoping they would compare it against the original passive cooler when it gets a decent airflow, like it might in your standard system. Nothing against the worst case scenario, but with that as the only representation, the information value of the video is somewhat diminished.
  2. TechCrunch is well known and reputable news source. And the news absolutely is tech, it deals with use of recently discovered exploit and it's use to extrapolate personal and logistical data from mobile phones. The malicious code on the infected websites, which might have been added without the site owner knowledge or consent, was indeed targeting any device, but the attack vectors were critically different. The point of breach used for iOS devices used watering hole 0 day attack that required no further interaction from the user apart from visiting the website. Such an attack is extremely dangerous, as it is hard to do due diligence if you can't even apprise the website safely. The Android and Windows attack vectors focus on known penetration practices and require the user to take further actions upon visiting the website in order to gain unauthorized access. I'd also like to point out how well the community handled this incident. Project Zero worked with FBI on blocking access and with Apple to quickly implement the fix, the whole situation was professionally handled and only then published. These vulnerabilities are unfortunate, but the impact could be mitigated with professional approach and proper communication, both within the industry and by communication with the wider userbase (something I'm trying to help with, at least a little ).
  3. True, but I think it's still important to report on it, both to make sure we don't forget about their plight, but also to make sure we don't go down the same way. It's crazy that I still do know people that think China is a great country we should learn from.
  4. The recentl iPhone exploit discovered by Project Zero has apparently been utilized for more than two years by the chinese government to spy on its Uyghur population living in the Xinjiang province. Original exploit disclosure China backed group behind many of the incidents
  5. David is really good and talented as the "product interaction model", that element was missing after Maxine left, I'm really happy that David has managed to fill that role. Funny that they are both camera operators, I guess that makes them aware of what looks good on camera.
  6. Quite disappointing video. The idea sounds very interesting, the execution was a huge waste of time. Instead of answering the question in 10 or less minutes, the video drags for 40 minutes, while trying to imitate the format of top gear TV show. Unfortunately, that format was held by the hosts, not its own quality, so for someone who doesn't like the humour displayed, the video is unwatchable. Sadly, the attempt to make a funny video has also destroyed the information value. We learn how well can Linus and Brandon compose a shots, not much about advantages of expensive camera. Giving a pro photographer and an amateur a cell phone, mid range camera and pro-summer camera, each for a month, to use in day-to-day life for capturing interesting moments and then seeing the difference in quality of captured images would be much more informative and could be conveyed in fraction of the time used here.
  7. There is still more and more of these blog style, fake banter, less scripted episodes, as opposed to the more compact planned out episodes where host reads the teleprompter. I hope this doesn't become the new standard, as it takes way more time to push across the same amount of information.
  8. It was a letdown that they didn't talk about that at all. That is something I'm way more excited about than some stupid all screen or folding phones. If you want my money, get me something with image retention, as I don't play games or watch video on my phone, so 10fps is more than enough.
  9. What the hell is it with these crusades? First hate on the disc drives, then USB2 I've used to connect the external disc drive once they did indeed remove the built-in ones and now you fight for webcams that many people just tape over or disconnect anyway? Ugh, gotta love the vocal minority ? .
  10. You can get the 1080p video stream, but w/o the audio, so you have to use a program ffmpeg to put them into one container.
  11. No, it wouldn't fix itself if you have studies disabled (like I do). You need to type in the address bar: about:studies Select "Update options" Check "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" Wait for "hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug-1548973" to install Type in about:studies Select "Update options" Un-check "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" The install took 10 minutes on one machine, other one is waiting for half an hour now... PS: The old (now called legacy) extensions were a terrible design, security-wise and shouldn't be enabled, not that it would fix anything, since this is just FF certificate, used to sign the add-ons, expiring.
  12. I have tried to make that work, but I haven't found any good solution that I'd be willing to invest in. That said, if LTT makes a video outlaying the options, I'd be very interested .
  13. Thank you for posting the doc, I really enjoy reading through them . e: And again no doc for 26th .
  14. You have over 50 people working there and you can't even manage to make a review. It was still a 12 minute video, you could have fitted all of the new features in there with a bit more effort with scripting and cutting, but instead decided to churn out a filler video .
  15. They are great, you can pick the graphs you are interested in and pause on them, the value graphs are very informative, they tell you the ratio of value to the price of build, it's very simple, yet effective concept.
  16. There has been a doc on 8th and 1st. PS: Thx to whoever is posting these, seems that when there is no Linus, we get both the news spoken about and the doc .
  17. Hoho, finally a true wan show again, we get the doc (THANK YOU for that), we get news on the wan show, we get real good banter, I really hope that Riley and Luke become the default hosts, they work so well.
  18. I keep my own accounting separate from the bank and compare it item for item, it sure hasn't happened to me, but since electronic money transfers are a norm now, I sure as hell want to keep up to date on this topic. Sadly, all I've read so far were more or less opinion pieces, not a good journalistic work.
  19. Does anybody have some good sources for the MasterCard threats topic? Sadly nothing in the OP.
  20. What I'd like to know (I haven't rly searched yet, just wondering if some1 here knows). If there are some SDKs for the run of the mill Chinese drones. e.g., I have KY601S and I wouldn't be opposed to mess around with that :) .
  21. Where is the WAN show document from the most recent episode (took place on 5th/6th)?
  22. More and more, reviews, most notably, phone reviews on this channel are just so far from what I want from a phone, it's almost not even worth watching. If I want perfect experience in some area, I'll use device designed for it. Phone should have good reception, call clarity, robust e-mail app, GPS accuracy and connectivity to my other devices, none of that is even mentioned in the review, instead, half the time is about movie watching and webpage scrolling? And hell, the lack of HW buttons is why I don't even watch movies on my tablet, since I can't easily change speed or use shortcuts for time jumps, are there apps for Key 2 that allow this? If there are, then it's better for movies that any other device I have seen thus far.
  23. Previous GPU had problems as well and the current one was doing fine in a different machine, as of now, my money is 80% MOBO, 19% RAM. This thing is so specific I'm just hoping to run into some1 who has experienced the very same thing...
