Congress grills Facebook, Twitter, Google over Russian influence

Facebook said Tuesday that roughly 126 million people could have seen bogus posts, while Twitter confirmed that there were more than 2,700 accounts associated with the Internet Research Agency, a Russian-backed troll farm. Altogether, those trolls have spread propaganda and fake news that's garnered more than 414 million impressions on Facebook and Twitter, the companies said.

Tesla can't ramp up Model 3 production until 2018

The company once again stressed that the car itself is not hard to build, but rather, it's the system of building the cars that's providing the issues. Tesla wants to automate as much of the process as possible, even more so than its other vehicles. While that's good for keeping personnel costs low, that introduces even more complexity into a schedule that may never have been as set in stone as it appeared.

Facebook Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results

This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding our future business expectations, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual results due to a variety of factors including: our ability to retain or increase users and engagement levels; our reliance on advertising revenue; our dependency on mobile operating systems, networks, and standards that we do not control; risks associated with new product development and their introduction as well as other new business initiatives; our emphasis on user growth and engagement and the user experience over short-term financial results; competition; litigation; privacy and regulatory concerns; risks associated with acquisitions; security breaches; and our ability to manage growth and geographically-dispersed operations. These and other potential risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from the results predicted are more fully detailed under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on July 27, 2017 , which is available on our Investor Relations website at investor.

Here Are the Russia Facebook Ads That Tried to Dupe You

Facebook and Twitter have been supplying US lawmakers with the ads and posts as Congress considers how best to stop Russia and other foreign governments from manipulating social media in future elections. Efforts are ongoing, Sen. Angus King said, pointing to hashtags that are being being promoted on both sides of recent politically charged events—like NFL players' decision to take a knee during the national anthem—in order to get people riled up on social media.

5 Former Yahoo CEO, Equifax CEO to testify at Senate hearing

Verizon in February lowered its original offer for Yahoo assets by $350 million in the wake of two massive cyber attacks at the internet company. The closing of the deal, which was announced in July 2016, was delayed as the companies assessed the fallout from data breaches Yahoo disclosed last year. The company paid $4.48 billion for Yahoo’s core business.

Senators to Facebook, Google, And Twitter: Where Are Your CEOs?

For the third time in two days, Senators expressed dissatisfaction not only with many of the answers from the tech companies—Sen. Feinstein, who was present at both hearings, said their responses were too “vague,” and called them a “profound disappointment”—but also by who was delivering the answer. Without the leaders of these companies present—Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Alphabet CEO Larry Page (or Google CEO Sundar Pichai), and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg—there’s a sense that these tech giants can’t fully be held accountable for their mistakes before, during, and after the 2016 presidential election.

This is the Razer Phone

If you’ve ever held the previous phone made by the Nextbit team, the Robin, the Razer phone feels a bit like the bigger, badder evolution of that. If there’s a parallel universe where Nextbit lived on independently and made a “Robin 2 XL,” it’d probably look a lot like this (minus, you know, the Razer logo on the back).

A 16GB drive will hold a few small footprint distributions or three full Ubuntu-based Distributions. With that in hand, insert the drive, make sure it is mounted (which can be done from within your desktop file manager), and then open Multiboot USB (from your desktop menu).

How to buy an app on iPhone X using Face ID | Cult of Mac

There’s one big conceptual difference between Face ID and its predecessor, Touch ID. With a fingerprint, you have to explicitly touch the home button to confirm an action. When unlocking a password-protected app, or unlocking the iPhone itself, it’s hard to do it unintentionally. But what about buying an app? The old Touch ID way is to tap the buy button, and then use your fingerprint to confirm the purchase. What happens with Face ID? How do you cancel a purchase after tapping buy? Do you look away? Close your eyes?

This is the Razer Phone

Moss, who used to be CEO of Nextbit, doesn't have a great answer when pressed further about why Razer wants to build a phone -- beyond the simple fact that for younger generations, and in some countries, the phone is the primary way people play games, and Razer needs to follow its audience. (He also says the company's getting a few game developers on board: as one example, Final Fantasy XV Mobile will support the 120Hz screen.)

6 reasons why Nintendo Switch is the best console to buy right now

It's the definitive "Mario Kart" experience, with a ridiculous number of courses and playable characters. Best of all, the Switch becomes a portable "Mario Kart" machine if you take the console in portable mode — each Joy-Con becomes a gamepad, and the Switch is the screen. Being able to casually challenge a friend to "Mario Kart" by simply having the Switch with you is pretty incredible.

Dell's 2017 Black Friday deals include $130 Inspiron laptop doorbuster | ZDNet

Similar to previous years, Dell will offer doorbusters as early as 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning and shift to hourly specials throughout Black Friday itself. (Other sales will be available starting November 15 and running through November 24.) If you're eating your holiday meal at 6 p.m. on Thursday, you'll need to excuse yourself from the table to jump online for the cheapest PC Dell is putting on sale: the Inspiron 14 3000 laptop, which will be discounted to $129.99 during the doorbuster period. As with many budget notebooks, it features bare-bones specs -- Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage -- but makes an affordable gift if you need to buy a laptop for the holidays.

Facebook’s business is booming, but it says preventing abuse will cut into future profits

Zuckerberg opened up today’s earnings call with a strongly worded promise to stamp out the use of Facebook for undermining democracy in the U.S.. On Russia’s use of the social network during the 2016 election he said, “what they did is wrong, and we are not going to stand for it.” He said he wanted investors to hear directly from him that this work would significantly undercut profitability. “I’m dead serious about this....protecting our community is more important than maximizing our profit.” Fiery words, although perhaps what you would expect from a CEO on a day when more than one law maker threatened to more heavily regulate Facebook if it couldn’t police itself well enough to prevent meddling in U.S. elections.

The iPhone X Is Cool. That Doesn’t Mean You Are Ready for It.

In the process of removing the bezel, Apple also eliminated the home button. As a result, controlling the iPhone X mostly involves using touch gestures. When inside an app or unlocking the phone, swiping up from the bottom brings you to the home screen. That’s simple, but other functions are trickier. To open the app switcher, a popular feature, you swipe up from the bottom and hold your finger for a second. Many times, I lifted my thumb too soon before opening this shortcut. (On past iPhones, you would just press the home button twice to open the app switcher.)

Elon Musk says Tesla’s China factory could begin production in roughly three years

A the time, Tesla wouldn’t say much more beyond that i’s “committed to the Chinese market” and interested in exploring manufacturing facilities around the world. Tesla CEO Elon Musk went into a bit more detail on the earnings call for its Q3 results today.

Razer's first phone is for gamers who want the fastest screen and loud sound

It's impossible to say if this gamble will pay off for the company. But if the Blade laptops are any indication, Razer may be able to carve out a niche even in an overwhelmingly crowded product category. Its product focus is much like Apple's: a premium feel comes first and foremost.

Should you upgrade your iPhone to iOS 11.1? | ZDNet

I've been testing iOS 11.1 beta for some time and overall it seems pretty good. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stability seems much improved, and overall stability seems better, especially on older devices. And after running the release version on a few devices for the past 12 hours, I've not come across any show-stopping problems. A quick scan of Apple's support forums and other places on the internet where people vent their spleens over iOS problems seems to suggest that this is the general picture.

Dinosaur-Killing Asteroid Basically Brought a Nuclear Winter, Says New Model

You may have heard about the effects of the impact on climate before, but this model is based on even more data. The researchers wanted to revisit the climate change after new improvements in mathematics and better understanding of the impact angle of the asteroid and the composition of the Earth below the crater became available. Their results showed that the asteroid could have instantly tossed around 300 gigatons of sulfur and 420 gigatons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. For comparison, all of humanity dumps around 40 gigatons of carbon into the atmosphere annually .

Diversity Visa Lottery: Here are 6 things to know about the program Trump is blasting

Chuck Schumer with loosening the nation’s borders.

Nintendo is releasing a limited edition Ocarina of Time Zelda 2DS for Black Friday

The other new Black Friday bundle is a limited “explorer’s edition” version of the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild , which includes the regular base game, along with a rather nice-looking 100-page explorer’s guide and a two-sided map for helping you make your way around Hyrule. That said, the explorer’s edition doesn’t include any new game content — even the DLC isn’t bundled in — so it’s probably a better purchase for new Switch owners, unless you really want that included book and map. It’ll cost $59.99, which is still basically what the regular edition costs. (If you’re picking up the game for the first time, you might as well try to get the fancy edition.)

Microsoft shuts down the Kinect to concentrate on the HoloLens and augmented reality

The Kinect's ability to adapt to an environment is arguably the first successful practical application of machine learning at the consumer level. As Kinect users interacted with the device, it would learn their idiosyncrasies and adjust as needed. The more you used your Kinect, the more accurate it got at interpreting your gestures and their relationship to its 3D mapping of the room—a technology and technique still being deployed in augmented and virtual reality devices years later and likely for the foreseeable future.

NSFW: Someone at Osama Bin Laden's Compound Sure Loved Anime

Today the CIA released close to 470,000 files recovered from the compound in Pakistan where US forces killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011. The files include Bin Laden’s journal as well as audio and video files from devices seized throughout the Abbottabad compound. Much of the entertainment recovered doesn’t exactly square with the image of “a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children,” as President Obama referred to Bin Laden, addressing the nation shortly after the man behind 9/11 was shot by Navy SEALs.

Silicon Valley Tried to Reinvent Schools. Now It’s Rebooting

But five years after opening, the for-profit venture has yet to solve a basic business equation. Despite charging about $30,000 for tuition, AltSchool’s losses are piling up as it spends at a pace of about $40 million per year. The San Francisco company is now scaling back its ambitions for opening elementary schools around the U.S. and will instead close at least one location. In an interview, Ventilla said it’s all part of the plan. The startup is shifting its focus to selling technology to other schools, a business which has struggled to date but that he said has a more promising future.

[Photo: Jonah Rosenberg] Of course, not every team at every company will face problems of the same type or magnitude that UTC often does. But it can still be helpful to start by teasing out a definition addressing the impact of the issue: why it’s important to solve it in the first place, the complexity of the system from which it arises, and the constraints that any solution will need to account for.

Amazon's iOS app now features augmented reality shopping

And, in fact, far fewer items appear to be available for AR View than the talk of "thousands" of items that I'm seeing elsewhere would suggest, as it took me only a couple of seconds to scroll through all the furniture listed in the "Living Room" section. Maybe I'm missing something, but right now the selection is closer to "dozens." Naturally, under "Electronics," Amazon's Echo devices take center stage.
