Microsoft Office looks to be available from Google Play Store for Chromebooks | ZDNet

Microsoft officials told Chrome Unboxed last year that Microsoft was working with Google "to deliver the best experience for Chromebook users" and planned to make full Android versions of the Office apps available on all "compatible" devices by the time the Google Play Store on Chrome OS was no longer in beta. But since that time, Microsoft execs had not provided an update on when Office would be generally available on Chromebooks. In the interim, some have been using CrossOver to run Windows apps on their Chromebooks .

Best Apple Watch Cyber Monday 2017 Deals

And umm…that’s about it. You are not going to find any other deal on the Apple Watch Series 1 this Cyber Monday from any other retailers. No deals are available on the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3 and they are unlikely to come by as well. A similar trend was seen at this year’s Black Friday and last year’s Black Friday so the lack of deals on the Apple Watch Series 2 and 3 should not be surprising.

Cyber Monday security: 8 Tips for shopping safely online

Searching for deals through Google, Bing and deal aggregation sites is a time-honored way of scoring the best price on your most-coveted gifts, but it's also a hotbed of bad or at least sketchy links. The search engines will do a good job of steering you away from bad links, but aggregation sites are simply scrapping the Internet for products and pricing. Some of the bad guys know this and have set up sites that will look like shopping destinations, but may be identity thieves in disguise. One clear signal that these sites are not safe is that they will lack the security lock icon. Another is when they're hosted outside the U.S. So, take a good hard look at those Cyber Monday shopping URLs.

White House reportedly considering personal phone ban for staff

Bloomberg reports today that the White House is considering a ban on personal phone use among its staff. According to anonymous sources, the ban has been proposed as a security measure not as an action against press leaks. However, some staff are concerned that because the White House already blocks websites like Gmail and Google Hangouts, this move would wholly isolate them from friends and family during the work day. Further, if staff instead use their government-issued phones for personal use, some worry about those calls being archived and made public.

Congress presses Uber for answers around the data breach it tried to hide

As one of the more tech-savvy members of Congress, Warner is recently best known for his role in the Senate Intel Committee’s Russia investigation. As part of that committee’s ongoing efforts, the senator has aggressively questioned Google, Facebook and Twitter on their roles in disseminating false information from Russian state-sponsored actors. With his letter to Uber, the poster child for tech’s disdain for playing by the rules, Warner appears to be deepening his message that tech may no longer be above the regulations that govern more traditional industries.

That's thanks to Amazon's existing speech recognition and natural language-processing tech—Lex and Polly, respectively.

Comcast hints at plan for paid fast lanes after net neutrality repeal

[T]he Commission also should bear in mind that a more flexible approach to prioritization may be warranted and may be beneficial to the public. For example, a telepresence service tailored for the hearing impaired requires high-definition video that is of sufficiently reliable quality to permit users "to perceive subtle hand and finger motions" in real time. And paid prioritization may have other compelling applications in telemedicine. Likewise, for autonomous vehicles that may require instantaneous data transmission, black letter prohibitions on paid prioritization may actually stifle innovation instead of encouraging it. Commercial arrangements that entail prioritizing such traffic could ensure the low latency levels needed to achieve the high level of data quality necessary for such services to thrive.

Reddit, Twitter, and 200 Others Say Ending Net Neutrality Could Ruin Cyber Monday - Slashdot

That these companies are willing to pay for premium access. What is more worrisome, is that in today's political climate. That pressure can be put on the ISPs to Slow down companies that they don't like. Currently CNN by the Trump administration. But when the Democrats get back in office, it could target Fox News.

As SNES Classic mini sells out, rivals step in | ZDNet

However, even this product has still been selling out so quickly that stock alerts to grab one have been valid for a few minutes at best. And while eBay prices aren't nearly as exorbitant as they were for the NES Classic mini at peak eBay pricing that could exceed 7x retail price, a typical SNES Classic mini console on eBay will cost at least twice its retail price.The next chapter in the saga will likely be Nintendo again announcing a discontinuation, leaving its fans to wonder if the company will pull off the same bizarre retro console cycle with its next chronological hit, the Nintendo 64, which was its last popular console prior to the Wii.

Tech companies ask FCC to keep net neutrality rules

In a letter  addressed to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai on Monday, the companies asked the agency to reverse course and scrap plans to roll back most of the Obama-era regulations that prevent broadband providers from messing with your internet access.

Apparently the Zack Snyder Justice League Cut Fans Have Been Petitioning for Doesn't Exist

Snyder was off the movie for a better part of the year. He most likely presented the studio with a skeleton of something before he left, which is why the reshoots were scheduled in the first place. However, whatever version he left of the movie was not something that could be released to the public. It was watchable in that format strictly as part of the process, but it’s highly unlikely that rough, incomplete assembly was saved as is. Instead, it was updated, changed, and completed.

DNA-Based Diet Advice Is Big Business With Little Scientific Support

But I wasn’t immune, either. A few years ago, thanks to the ease and availability of genetic sequencing, a new category of health startups began to form. The founding premise was seductive in its clarity: Standard dieting advice is too broad to be effective. Instead, if we want to truly nourish our bodies (and, by extension, actually lose weight), we should be following personalized eating plans based on our unique genetic and microbial makeup. It’s the same magical thinking that has popularized hundreds of bizarre eating plans–maybe it’s just a matter of finding the right diet–wrapped in a layer of sophisticated-sounding science. Today, there are dozens of companies that send users personalized dietary advice based on their genetic data. (A nonexhaustive list: Habit , Vitagene , EmbodyDNA , uBiome , Viome , Nutrigenomix , LifeNome , and DNAFit. )

Holiday shoppers ditch tablets, want phones, according to our survey

(Still, one in five survey takers admitted you'd would rather take the tech.) And if you're younger? You're less likely to spend the holidays online. Twenty-seven percent of respondents are looking forward to less screen time over the holidays, but a whopping 42 percent of millennial CNET holiday shoppers want to spend less time online.

A Recruiter Shares The Best Way To Follow Up On A Job Application

If you feel strongly that you need to show up to make your case, do so in a way that shows your interest without burdening your recruiter or hiring manager with a long visit. Deliver a handwritten note in person and leave after giving your contact a quick hello, or send a small treat like coffee and donuts with a short note responding to any feedback you received throughout the interview process. These methods still may not change the fact that you simply aren’t a good fit for the job, but they’ll give you one more contact point without damaging the relationship you have.
