Apple’s CarPlay is finally coming to Toyota and Lexus vehicles

On the 2019 Avalon, users will be able to interact with CarPlay through the 9-inch capacitive touchscreen. (Despite featuring a standard Qi wireless charger, there’s sadly no support for wireless CarPlay, so you’ll still have to plug in a cable to take advantage of the feature.) The new model also features Toyota’s first integration of smartwatch and Amazon Alexa compatibility through the Toyota Remote Connect, allowing owners to do things like lock or unlock their doors and start their car through Alexa or a smartwatch.

What Is 4K (Ultra HD)?

High dynamic range ( HDR ) is a category of video formats available on many new 4K TVs. HDR content has the same resolution as regular 4K video, but each pixel can be assigned a much wider and more granular range of color and light. This lets HDR video appear significantly more detailed, accurate, and lifelike than standard dynamic range video. However, you need an HDR-compatible display, and the content needs to be encoded in an HDR format. The two major formats currently availble are HDR10 and Dolby Vision. While all HDR-compatible TVs support HDR10, not all can display Dolby Vision content, which is how certain services stream HDR videos. If you don't have an HDR television, don't worry; all physical media and streaming services that offer HDR content can display SDR versions of the same material on screens that don't support the format.

Contraceptive app Natural Cycles is under investigation over unwanted pregnancies

Natural Cycles describes its app as an "effective method of contraception." The app tracks women's temperature to gauge their hormone cycle and tells them accordingly whether they can have unprotected sex or not on particular days. The app has become a popular alternative to the pill and other hormone-based contraception because it doesn't involve taking any medicines, inserting devices, or hormone patches.

10 resolutions IT professionals should keep all year

If you work in IT you're likely all too familiar with the concept of routine, repetitive tasks which can unnecessarily eat away at your day. Prime example: password resets, which can be a significant time drain. There are certain strategies which can help users remember their passwords and when they need changing; password databases like Password Safe and KeePass, Outlook reminders to change passwords before they expire (such as every 60 days), mnemonic strategies to remember complex passwords, and other tips. These should be shared along with whatever else may be helpful for them to use technology to do their jobs.

The most mind-blowing tech we saw at CES 2018

This prototype phone shown by Chinese phonemaker Vivo has no official name, price or sale date. But its virtual home button, which appears only when you need it and then gets out of the way, may be a harbinger of things to come. It's a killer feature that was rumored for both the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8 -- neither of which had it. We're clinging to the hope that it finds its way onto the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 .

City-owned Internet services offer cheaper and more transparent pricing | Hacker News

I'm guessing "it depends" on the locality but in general there's nothing magical about being an entity that can sling cable around the town on poles. There are already typically two providers doing so (besides the electricity utility) : phone and cable tv. If you want to you can start a company and do it too, if you live by their rules, man. Rules include things like using qualified people to attach stuff to poles, be insured appropriately, other kinds of "government over-regulation" stuff, and of course that there be space available on said poles. In our very small town there's a retail store that has their own fiber between two of their locations. I suspect they contracted its installation to one of the regional fiber maintenance and installation companies. That's probably how you'd do it too unless you like owning bucket lift trucks and being on-call to come out and repair fiber when someone drives into a pole. Now, in some cases the city has issued a "licence" to a provider to deliver some service city-wide (e.g. cable tv). That agreement might include some non-competition provisions, on the basis that said provider spent $$$ installing their system and is only willing to do that if they are guaranteed to not have competition.

Researchers Find That One Person Likely Drove Bitcoin From $150 to $1,000 - Slashdot

Researchers Neil Gandal, JT Hamrick, Tyler Moore, and Tali Oberman have written a fascinating paper on Bitcoin price manipulation. Entitled "Price Manipulation in the Bitcoin Ecosystem" and appearing in the recent issue of the Journal of Monetary Economics the paper describes to what degree the Bitcoin ecosystem is controlled by bad actors . To many it's been obvious that the Bitcoin markets are, at the very least, being manipulated by one or two big players. "This paper identifies and analyzes the impact of suspicious trading activity on the Mt. Gox Bitcoin currency exchange, in which approximately 600,000 bitcoins (BTC) valued at $188 million were fraudulently acquired," the researchers wrote. "During both periods, the USD-BTC exchange rate rose by an average of four percent on days when suspicious trades took place, compared to a slight decline on days without suspicious activity. Based on rigorous analysis with extensive robustness checks, the paper demonstrates that the suspicious trading activity likely caused the unprecedented spike in the USD-BTC exchange rate in late 2013, when the rate jumped from around $150 to more than $1,000 in two months.

Apple Now Facing Lawsuit Over Spectre and Meltdown in the United States

As such, class action lawsuits against companies was inevitable, and now Apple is facing one of its own, as first reported by MacRumors .

Jacqueline Olson and Anthony Bartling filed the lawsuit in a U.S. District Court in San Jose, California, on behalf of anyone who purchased an Apple-branded device with an ARM-based processor designed by Apple. That includes any of the A-series processors from the A4 to the current A11 Bionic, which are present in iPhones, iPads, Apple TV units, and the iPod touch lineup.

7 hidden Instagram editing tips and tricks

Instagram has 40 filters. I wager you don't use more than 10 or 15 with any regularity. I mean, when was the last time you used Toaster, 1977 or Kelvin? For filters you don't use or don't use regularly, you can hide them or move them to the end of the line so you get to your favorites first. To adjust your lineup of filters, choose a photo to post and then swipe all the way to the right of the filters and tap Manage. Here, you can drag and drop to reorder them or tap the checkmark on the right to hide the ones you don't use or want showing up.

TAG Heuer unveils the most expensive smartwatch ever made

Diamonds may be forever, but Android Wear is not. Despite its flashy looks, the smartwatch is a standard Android Wear 2.0 device that comes with the same technology we saw in the version launched last year. TAG has previously offered upgrade schemes for owners of its Connected line of smartwatches, though it's not known if that will apply to this one. A request for comment has not yet been returned.

Perfect power bank for your iPhone X/8 and MacBook | ZDNet

Recharging the device requires a PD-compatible charger (which, if you own a MacBook or have a fast charger for your iPhone, you'll already own, and if you don't, you'll need to buy one), and using this you can take the power bank from zero charge to 100 percent in about 3 hours. If you use a standard 1A charger, that recharge time rises to 20 hours.

As such, Behere starts by allowing members flexibility as to how long they want to stay in a given place (a minimum of one month), and then go through a verification process. “It enables you to be in total control of your life instead of being on a group tour,” she points out. Behere arranges for short-term apartments, a coworking space, and gym memberships, as well as access to a local community manager who walks them through the city and helps them connect to events, language exchange programs, and more. Brown says that each community manager speaks English and has worked abroad, and some are employed in the hospitality industry, so they are well-versed in traveler’s needs.

The Best Data Recovery Software of 2018

One failing that bothered us in all these apps—including our top picks—is that they didn't even warn us that we couldn't recover files from an SSD. It's easy for an app to tell whether a drive uses spinning-platter or SSD technology, and easy to tell whether TRIM technology is active in a drive. All of the software we reviewed, both on the Mac and PC, misleadingly told us that they were able to recover deleted files from SSDs—and then disappointed us by providing corrupt and unusable files instead of the ones we wanted. We hope that the next generation of data recovery software is redesigned to make it clear that we can't hope for file recovery on SSDs unless the deleted files are safely in the Recycle Bin—where, of course, they're easy to find without using recovery software.

Alibaba hits back at US over market blacklist

"As a result of the rise of trade protectionism, Alibaba has been turned into a scapegoat by the USTR to win points in a highly politicized environment and their actions should be recognized for what they are. The USTR's actions made it clear that the Notorious Markets List, which only targets non-US marketplaces, is not about intellectual property protection, but just another instrument to achieve the US Government's geopolitical objectives. Alibaba reiterates our point of view: we will continue to strengthen our IP protection system with world leading technology and a collaborative approach with brands and other stakeholders. Our efforts and results speak for themselves: over 100,000 brands, including 75 percent of the world's most valuable consumer brands, do business on our platform."

Those lights on your router can help you fix a faulty internet connection

Similar to routers, most modems (both Cable and DSL) have a light dedicated to the broadband connection. This light is often labeled as Online, Cable, Sync or Signal and usually has a symbol similar to the internet light on a router as mentioned above. Under normal conditions, this light should be solid green (or amber). If it's off, red or flashing constantly (it's OK if it flashes for a short time, like less than a minute, after a reboot) then check to make sure the service cable, either the phone line (DSL) or the coaxial cable (cable internet) is securely plugged in and not broken. If the cable is fine, then you should call the service provider (and tell them about the status of the light) because there's nothing you can do on your own at that point to fix the problem.

Microsoft’s Cortana falls behind Alexa and Google Assistant at CES

The annual Consumer Electronics Show is always a good opportunity to get an early look at devices coming throughout the year.

If you were hoping to see more Cortana-powered devices, they were nowhere to be found.

Tech Trends That Need to Die in 2018

Blockchain is a groundbreaking technology that can redefine how online applications and the internet as a whole function in a decentralized, immutable way. The term "blockchain," however, has become the tagline du jour next to AI and machine learning for every startup and tech giant angling to get in on the craze. Blockchain can serve as the foundation for a new generation of apps and services. It's the beginning of something, not an end goal. The buzzword must die so the technology can thrive.

Not even $197,000 of diamonds can save this Tag Heuer smartwatch from Android Wear

The rest of the watch is basically a standard Android Wear 2.0 device: AMOLED screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, and an Intel Atom Z34XX processor that will all be completely obsolete in around two years. Tag Heuer has said that it’ll be offering the same trade-in program that will let you swap in a mechanical movement for the electronic one once it becomes outdated, so you’ll at least be able to get some mileage out of your $197,000 diamond-covered smartwatch, even after the processor and battery have aged to near uselessness.
