Hey guysSo you're just starting electronics or have been a hobbiest for a while now. A power supply is a must for, so in this instructable I am going to show you how we can make a very basic and easy to use power supply for practically nothing. The power supply can deliver upto 20 volts at 3 amps and is more than enough for most tasks and with the way we are dependent on our smartphones (or USB devices in general) I decided to add an USB power supply that can be used to charge your phone (completely optional though I just used it for my convenience) In a previous instructable I had shown you how you could build a power supply which had a couple of fixed voltages and a variable one. Though the build was a little more complex I hadn’t included a high power output option ...

In the Leaf, ProPilot will control acceleration, braking, and steering while the car is driving in a single lane on the highway.

Windows 10 source code leak is an embarrassment for Microsoft

That doesn't mean this data leak isn't serious, though. It's an embarrassing black mark for Microsoft at a time that more and more people are paying attention to and concerned about computer security. While the source code has been removed voluntarily by Beta Archive, it's unclear how many people had already downloaded it. It's possible that it still could be distributed via other methods and used to create exploits for Windows 10 .

The British Parliament has been hit by a cyberattack

Authorities discovered unusual activity on the computer networks this morning, and have moved to take steps to protect them, which appears to include preventing access outside of the Palace of Westminster. In an e-mail to Members of Parliament, parliamentary authorities say that they have “confirmed that hackers were carrying out a sustained and determined attack on all parliamentary user accounts in an attempt to identify weak passwords.”

Waymo picks ex-Tesla engineering chief to build them a driverless car

Waymo has not revealed any plans to build its own car, instead working with automakers like Fiat Chrysler to provide the cars. Waymo then outfits the cars with the specialized hardware for self-driving, and in the case of the Chrysler Pacifica minivans, the hardware team even adjusted the car’s weight and some of the features. This could be Waymo’s plan of action for the future, instead of investing millions into the complex car manufacturing market.

How to set up ssh key authentication - TechRepublic

If you're a Linux administrator, you most certainly are using secure shell to gain access to your remote servers. Why? Secure shell is far more trustworthy than many other means of logging into your remote servers. When you attempt to log into a remote server, you will be asked for a username and password. As you transmit that information it is encrypted, so there's no need to worry. However, what if you could add yet another layer of security? This is not only possible, it's actually quite simple.

This flawed Confederate sub led to future undersea advances

The sub had sunk twice before, killing 13 crew members, including its inventor, Horace Lawson Hunley. But while its builders knew what they needed to do to make a submarine an effective weapon of war, they didn't have the technology to do it. For reasons we still don't know, the Hunley sank that night, too, killing all eight men inside it. It was the sub's third, and last sinking, in six months. The Hunley disappeared into the sediment until it was found 131 years later.

The 100 Best Android Apps of 2017

I've come to think of the Google Play app store a little like a galaxy. From a distance, the sheer number of apps is staggering, making it hard to taken in all at once. But zoom in on any one of those apps, and the distance between them, in terms of quality and what they offer, is vast. Consider: If you looked at an app from Google Play every second, without stopping, it would take more than 23 days to see them all. That's hardly a good use of time. So instead I present this list, the 100 essential apps that you need, whether you're on the best and newest Android phone or still plodding along on a dusty tablet.

Technics SL-1200GR turntable, for DJs or audiophiles or both?

When I play LPs for non-audiophiles old enough to have grown up with vinyl, they can't get over how quiet my records are. They remember LPs with lots of pops, clicks, scratches and rumble, but not at my house! Even some of my 50-year-old albums are remarkably quiet, it's just too bad those folks never heard how good turntables could sound back in the day. No worries, it's not too late to buy a great turntable -- such as the new Technics SL-1200GR  -- and discover why audiophiles' passion for playing records never waned.

And the winner for best phone with dual-cameras is…

Both of these phones are great dual-camera phones. But the iPhone 7 Plus is a little bit better in all the right places: video, image stabilization, burst mode and Portrait Mode.

How couples use Instagram to spotlight black queer love

"Dominic and I met as teenagers. We went to different high schools but they were close in proximity, so we had a lot of mutual friends. High school was also the time period in which we both came out to our families, although at separate times and unknowingly of each other's personal journeys. After graduating high school, life took me and Dominic in different directions. He went on to attend UCF in Orlando while I went to college in Kentucky. We reconnected one summer when I was in Orlando helping a friend move into her dorm and asked Dominic to have dinner with me. That night we talked for 4 hours and shut down the restaurant. Shortly after, Dominic asked if we could make it official and so our long distance relationship began. But the distance wouldn't be ending anytime soon. After college, I moved to New York for work and Dominic moved to D.C. to go to law school at Georgetown University. Finally, after 7 years of the back and forth, we are finally living together in Brooklyn... and engaged! Dominic and I feel lucky to have found love at such a young age. However, falling in love with another black man was scary in ways neither of us could have ever imagined.

8 steps to becoming a 'cloud-native' enterprise | ZDNet

Go Agile. Becoming a cloud-native operation "is less a matter of technology adoption and more one of inculcating new skills and changing old attitudes and practices," the Capgemini authors state. This includes embracing "a culture of agile, continuous development, and a greater openness to collaboration and receptivity to new ideas from a variety of partners, both internal and external." Easier said than done, of course, but this is a course that needs to be set.

Samsung's newest smart fridges are actually... affordable?

What is  new, however, is that the new Family Hub models are on sale now at major retailers across the US. Available now for the first time in French three-door and four-door variations, each of the new Family Hubs includes the same king-size touchscreen as the originals, complete with Samsung's year-two software refinements. The new entry level cost? $3,299 -- thousands less than what the original Family Hubs debuted at. That's still a lot to spend on a fridge, but it's basically on par with top-tier models from competitors like GE and Whirlpool.

If you’re into high-end headphones, this amp is for you

Which reminds me, the new Hifiman Susvara headphone, one of the most expensive headphones I've ever been lucky enough to try had a special affinity for the RH-5. I'll review this headphone soon, but it's a beast to drive -- no other amp in my collection was potent enough to bring out the best in the Susvara. The HPA-1 amp struggled with highly dynamic recordings over the Susvara, the RH-5 played them with greater ease. The RH-5 sound was also lusher and fuller than the HPA-1, which sounded too lean by comparison to the Susvara.

OpenVPN taken to task after audit ignores remote code execution flaws | ZDNet

"An attacker can trigger a double-free IF the server has insufficient memory, combined with the fact that the attacker can arbitrarily drain the server of memory, making it plausible that a remote double-free can be achieved," the researcher says. "But if a double-free is inadequate to achieve remote code execution, there are probably other functions, whose behavior is wildly different under memory duress, that you can exploit."

How to Clean Up Windows 10 With the Refresh Windows Tool

Of course, you'll have to reinstall any software or apps and restablish any customized settings to bring Windows back to the way you want it. That's why the best time to run the Refresh Windows tool, at least on a brand new PC, is as soon as you get it home and take it out of the box. That means less work for you and a PC unburdened by junkware.

Too smart to fall for a spear-phishing message? Think again - TechRepublic

Once the researchers were happy with their spear-phishing messages and survey questions, they recruited volunteers. The selected participants were sent either an email or a personal Facebook message with a link from a non-existing person, claiming the link led to pictures from a party. "When clicked, the corresponding webpage showed an access denied message," write the report's authors. "We registered the click rates, and later sent the participants a questionnaire asking about their clicking behavior."

Microsoft says "no known ransomware" runs on Windows 10 S — so we tried to hack it

But given the dangers associated with macros, Word's "protected view" blocks macros from running when a file is downloaded from the internet or received as an email attachment. To get around that restriction, Hickey downloaded the malicious Word document he built from a network share, which Windows considers a trusted location, giving him permission to run the macro, so long as he enabled it from a warning bar at the top of the screen. The document could easily point an arrow to the bar, telling the user to disable protected mode to see the contents of the document -- a common social engineering technique used in macro-based ransomware. (If he had physical access to the computer, he could have also run the file from a USB stick, but he would have to manually unblock the file from the file's properties menu -- as easy as clicking a checkbox.)

Can AI make your health insurance better? | ZDNet

Beyond the "healthy millennial" scenario, imagine a middle-aged woman who is pre-diabetic. Early engagement will make sense, for both the insurer and the member. Proactive management of the condition will clearly lower costs for the former. But it also constitutes responsible care coordination. Without machine learning, telling payers they should engage in such outreach might be glib at best; but with ML, insurers can implement it, as a matter of procedure, with a high degree of confidence, statistically, that it's in their interest to do so.

Bone-sniffing dogs to search for Amelia Earhart's remains

The group's Earhart Project has spent decades testing the hypothesis that Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan landed safely on Gardner Island, now called Nikumaroro, about 400 miles (640 kilometers) southeast of their intended landing spot, Howland Island. According to the project's website, the group believes Earhart and Noonan survived on the island for a time as castaways, catching and cooking small fish, seabirds, turtles and clams.

Linux owns supercomputing | ZDNet

First, since most of the world's top supercomputers are super-scalar research machines built for specialized tasks, each supercomputer is a standalone project with unique characteristics and optimization requirements. Thus, it's not affordable to develop a custom operating system for each system. With Linux, engineering teams can easily modify and optimize Linux to the one-off, groundbreaking designs that characterize the modern supercomputers.

The Best Wireless Headphones of 2017

Earphones (or earbuds, or in-ear headphones) offer a slightly different sound profile compared with conventional headphones. Generally, you'll get better sound from a full set of "cans" around your head than from buds in your ears, but in-ear sound quality has improved a great deal. More importantly, in-ear headphones are much more likely to be water resistant, and much better suited for use when working out. Get a good sweat going, and you'll turn your headphone earpads into a nasty mess. For our top picks, check out The Best Earphones .

Alphabet says Travis Kalanick knew one of Uber’s acquisitions had taken Alphabet files

Judge William Alsup recently ordered Uber to produce documents and correspondence related to the case, including information showing whether any evidence had been destroyed. On Wednesday, Alphabet cited a June 5 Uber court filing that shows Kalanick asked Levandowski to destroy the documents in question. Uber had to present the information by March of this year but didn’t report its findings until June.

Leak of Windows 10 Source Code Raises Security Concerns

First reported by The Register and confirmed by Microsoft on Friday night, the leak contains source code “to the base Windows 10 hardware drivers plus Redmond’s PnP code, its USB and Wi-Fi stacks, its storage drivers, and ARM-specific OneCore kernel code.” With that information, a hacker can hunt for vulnerabilities within some of the most trusted levels of the operating system. The code also reportedly contains the private debugging symbols that are normally stripped from public releases. These symbols give programmers extra information about which functions and data a piece of code is calling.
