HID attacks via USB drives have become too suspicious. What about embedding the attack inside a USB cable?
Just a quick test for a few things I’m hoping to make over the next month.
Black Mirror should do an episode featuring a clearly destructive technology — like a robot that kills your whole family or something — and make it entirely about the people who defend it on Twitter.
So for those keeping score, AMD says they are not impacted. Google, which discovered the issue, says they are. And MSFT says its patch fixes AMD systems too (which would seem to imply they think AMD was impacted)
Google: Android Devices with the latest security update are protected.
Translation: All Android devices are and will remain vulnerable. Just like KRACK.
Apple: we’re slowing down processors cause your battery might be bad
So if you’re running a #cryptocurrency exchange you must be shaking with fear right now. Think about the implications of #meltdown and #spectre and all those wallet private keys going through memory. Target rich environment. If we see exploits, that’s where it’ll start.
Super common thing reporters see:
Women: “I’m not an expert, here’s someone who is for you to talk to.”
Men: “I’m not an expert, but here are all my thoughts on the topic anyway feel free to quote me.”
In Tweetbot it seems to happen mostly when there’s no embedded media nor mention; in Finder it’s when there’s an accent in the file name.
I knew I didn’t want to upgrade to High Sierra but HOLY SHIT THIS IS GONNA DRIVE ME CRAZY VERY QUICKLY.
No choice but to enable LCD Font Smoothing so that at least everything is consistently a bit blurry and it’s a good thing my bank account is empty or I’d be ordering a Surface Book right this second.
iOS 11 tip: After you take a screenshot you can long press on the little preview to go straight to the share menu.
40,100 retweets of a quote tweet of a news article link that doesn’t exist, from an account with 80 followers.
Consider how much of the world narrative you injest and accept from passing glance alone.
I’d actually want something like this. And $50 is even somewhat reasonable.
January 9: I guess I’m glad I don’t have an AMD
Shame that the whole idea has been obsoleted by “let’s put all your files in the cloud” and I doubt we’ll ever manage to back away from that.
According to the internets there’s a good chance my problems come from having upgraded the RAM years ago, and I can’t help but wonder if Apple’s intentionally fucking up my install because it thinks I might have a Hackintosh.
How do you make a *nix kernel — which is running on a whole lot of different configurations — incompatible with third-party RAM, if not intentionally?
Recovery partition allowed me to reinstall 10.13.2 in one click without losing anything, so at least macOS is still good for something.
Oh hey, while I was away from iOS development Xcode has somehow managed to become even dumber and more annoying at auto-balancing brackets while modifying code.
Oubliez les robots tueurs et les IA conversationnelles : au #CES, ce jouet pour chat incarne le futur de la chatontech. 🐱
This soldering reference card from @adafruit is the most to-the-point explanation of good soldering practices I have ever seen:
Those damn cross-platform apps and games making a mess of the Documents folder because that’s how it’s done on Windows.
Why can’t you easily search all of the text you read on any screen (desktop + mobile) over the past day?
It’s strange how much obvious, low-hanging fruit of this form still exists.
Comment voyage la lumière dans une fibre optique - illustration.
Apple can surely do their part. @fmanjoo is spot on here. Letting people set limits on their usage (like, gimme a warning if I exceed 30mins/day on Insta!) or awareness of that usage would be wonderful.
Lot of this sort of thing going around today. Lack of fundamental understanding that Russian troll accounts would say almost entirely things you agree with!
Then, when the time was right, they’d tell you how, really, dead people in Aleppo were fake news, invented in Photoshop.
My domain name provider’s new site is so bad (months after its launch) the Logout button doesn’t work.
I used to get all my domains there — in spite of the higher cost — because their management UI was the best.
OK, I think I figured out the secret to getting animated gifs to look awesome with Face AR.
I’m replacing all black color with clear and it totally changes the experience.
CALayer on iOS 11 has a private “continuousCorners” property, which is what powers many rounded corners in SpringBoard – and likely more! Now I’m jealous.
THIS is the Macintosh logic board, designed by Burrell Smith, Brian Howard, and Colette Askeland, and introduced on this day in 1984
Google: We helped find this terrible CPU bug that allows attackers to steal all your secrets if arbitrary code is run on your machine.
Google Ads: Hey, want to run some arbitrary code on hundreds of millions of computers? Get $140 in advertising credits if you sign up now.
So all 3 major Dutch banks DDoS’d over the last 3 days. I’m sure that has nothing to do with the Dutch revealing the Russian hack of the State Dept and the Democrat’s HQ. Must be a coincidence.
