  1. Summary For over 2 years, a flaw in Airdrop has made it possible to get user information, including phone number and email address. This works because the handshake that occurs for 'contact only' and 'allow anyone' airdrop uses the encrypted phone number and email to check if the other user is in their address book. Attackers can both monitor for discovery requests and wait for the share menu as well as several other ways using methods such as man-in-the-middle attacks. In May 2019 Apple was notified, and the researchers also offered a version that would fix the issue, called PrivateDrop,
  2. Summary John Deere got hacked - AGAIN! A white hat hacker/researcher 'Sick.Codes' found John Deere API is not secure - usernames can be queried easily. John Deere Doesn't do anything about it. They remove parts of the bug report page. On social media, the white hat asked if they had received it via DM. John Deere asked them to send it to their social media team, which is not their security team. John Deere systems have security flaws that allow customer locations, VINs, programs, and more to be accessed John Deere says on Twitter "Today's Forecast: one
  3. If ios users want the policies changed, they need to make Apple care. Apple doesn't care about their users, they care about money. So I would to the thing that would cost Apple the most money: Stop using their products.
  4. Using a Luigi board obviously!
  5. The Verge article mentions something about quora: What do you mean about Quora specifically?
  6. Summary Yahoo Answers will be shutting down on May 4th, 2021 at EST. Prior to this, on April 20th, the site will be put in read-only mode. After May 4th, users will be redirected to the Yahoo home page. Users have until June 30, 2021 to download their content. Try to get it started by the beginning of June though, as it can take up to 30 days for the data to be ready. Yahoo stated that if there is any feedback or comments about this, an email can be sent to yahoo_answers_sunset@verizonmedia.com. The shutdown will not have any impact on other services. My
  7. This is going to be a short post. I honestly think that instead of craving to pressure and new regulations, Apple will maintain that it's Lightning connector is the only acceptable one. In places where they will be required due to new regulations, they will probably put a USB-C to lightning connector in the box, then maybe include a lightning cable for good measure. They are going to fight this like the auto industry fought seat belts and air bags - drag it out and make a big fuss over it. What do you guys think? note: I have no idea how these regulations ar
  8. A friend gave me their old 2014 Raspberry Pi B+ v1.2. I formatted a 32 Gb micro SD card, flashed the RasPi OS onto it with the tool from my only other computer (which is a macbook that was also a gift). I put the SD into the Pi, plugged in the HDMI, plugged in power, and… no screen output. the Power and Act lights fine, so the board itself probably has no problems. The green ACT light got dim and was flashing. I am not sure if there is a pattern, maybe I was just imagining it, but it looked like it flashed 3 times, paused, and repeated. I looked it up and found the issue associated with it, bu
  9. Exactly. You can also imagine that these balloons will eventually keep needing to be refilled, while sats have to be boosted a lot less often.
  10. that is true, which is why it failed. there was a better way of doing it, but it was kind of a startup so they don't want to spend the amount needed to launch sats.
  11. i mean yeah i agree, Google has a lot of duplicate/overlapping products, and a lot have to get shut down
  12. Summary Alphabet's Loon, which provided internet from balloons, is shutting down. For their current operations, they say that they hope their employees can find an alternative at other alphabet companies. They also are pledging $10 million to help boost connectivity in Kenya. Not all of the technology will be forgotten, Project Taara will continue to use technology from Loon. Alphabet's X projects, such as Loon, Wing, and Waymo, are 'moonshot' companies, and they remind everyone that for every one idea that works, there will be many that don't. My thoughts
  13. yeah I thought it was a PR move of some kind, and I knew something was missing, and that was the selling of data. Great addition!
