Elon Musk's flamethrower is apparently selling like crazy

We also don't know what, exactly, happens when you actually click order and pay $500 plus tax and shipping. The entire flamethrower episode is a joke taken too far, way past the point of no return and probably past the solar system as well. But hey, it's Elon Musk, and he takes his jokes seriously, so if he says he sold 7,000 flamethrowers, who are we to argue?

Microsoft issues emergency Windows update to disable Intel’s buggy Spectre fixes

Intel says it has identified the issues behind the unexpected reboots on Broadwell and Haswell processors and is working toward releasing an update that addresses the exploits without causing random reboots and data loss. Ivy Bridge, Sandy Bridge, Skylake, and Kaby Lake processors are also affected, and Intel says it’s “actively working on developing solutions” for those platforms too.

Apple reportedly halves iPhone X early 2018 production target

It's the latest wrinkle in the mystery of just how well the iPhone X sold over the holiday period. The most premium version of the iPhone was the only model last year that received a significant facelift and new key features, including a facial recognition system. But it may have turned some customers away because of its extravagant price and the requirement to learn a new control scheme, given the missing home button.

Facebook teaches you how to keep your data private

Not to be confused with its terms and conditions, Facebook's privacy principles are essentially promises to keep your data safe, to show you how to take command of it, and to improve the tools you use. Meanwhile, its educational videos (which will run on and off Facebook), will regurgitate the info already available in its Privacy Basics portal.

Google experiments in local news with an app called Bulletin

Specifically, people tend to tweet or live stream when news is breaking – like if they witness an accident, a fire, a fight, a police chase, or something else of a more urgent and distressing nature. Meanwhile, if they’re trying to promote a local event – like a book signing, to use Google’s example – it’s likely that they’ll post that to the business’s Facebook Page, where it can then be discovered through the Page’s fans and surfaced in Facebook’s Local app.

Why Tesla's autopilot can't see a stopped firetruck | Hacker News

Yeah, I have a Tesla with AutoPilot. Staying alert enough to make sure it doesn't crash into anything really isn't that hard. It's still really nice to not have to worry about keeping in the lane and maintaining distance yourself, but you can easily get a sense for when the car is doing something you wouldn't do. There have been many times when I'm pretty sure AutoPilot was about to kill me so I just... hit the breaks. Trust me, it's still a lot safer than if I was driving the car. Naturally there is always going to be human error, but it doesn't make sense to say "semi-autonomous" is bad while "full autonomy" is good. Guess what, we're going to have to deal with less advanced versions of the software before we can arrive at the real deal. The trick is to know and communicate the limits of the system. For example Tesla will alert you visually and through audio if you don't have your hands on the wheel. If it has to ask you three times, it'll just disable AutoPilot for the rest of the drive. It's just like a more advanced cruise control.

Here’s a First Look Inside Amazon’s Grand, Plant-Filled Spheres

Wi-Fi is available for those looking to work, as well as small meeting spaces like the “bird's nest,” perched along the suspension bridge beneath Rubi that resembles a tree fort swaying in the branches. The spheres can accommodate 800 people at a time, and Amazon will use employee badges to monitor time spent inside and make sure no one hogs the tree fort. Management wants employees to relax, just not too much.

Report: New Wireless Charging iPhone SE Expected by June

Luke Lin, senior analyst at Digitimes Research, believes that Apple is planning an iPhone SE refresh with a launch planned for May or June at the latest. Very little is known about the new model, but it is expected to have a glass back and wireless charging as standard. As this is a budget phone, we shouldn't expect any of Apple's latest features, such as 3D sensors or Face ID .

ESL One’s Dota 2 Minor hits high notes despite Facebook fail

This more or less put the issue to rest, with community streams started popping up on Twitch, both in protest and as an alternative for the Facebook haters. Even as ESL's Facebook stream seemed to resolve some of its earlier issues, its viewer count peaked at just 50,000, a far cry from what it could have gotten on Twitch. It remains to be seen if this move will pay off, but ESL seems to think it will.

Searing 'Sorry to Bother You' could be 2018's 'Get Out'

Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, "Sorry to Bother You" is something of a Sundance success story. Rapper turned writer and director Boots Riley worked his way through the festival's filmmaking mentorship schemes in previous years to become the toast of this year's event. His film was one of the most buzzed-about on this year's bill, and in a quiet year for distribution deals at the festival it's been picked up by Annapurna Pictures. Hopefully that means you'll get to see it for yourself some time in the not-too-distant future, because this wildly ambitious and outrageous satire really needs to be seen to be believed.

Why successful DevOps implementation requires a "cultural change"

Once you have an organization that's ready to do this, what we do is we have a master prioritization list across all of our teams. Our teams are Agile and we have about 47 separate teams at New Relic. But what we need to do is coordinate their activities, and make sure it's aligned to what the business needs. We have a master prioritization list that the teams look at, and that way if we have a crosscutting project where every team has to do some work, we know we can get that work scheduled very quickly at the next iteration. The next brand for teams through this like being very explicit about the global priorities for the whole organization. If teams don't have anything to work on in the global priority, then they're free to go back to their own local priorities, making their own part of the product or system better against their own backlog.

And he's right. Major Audricia Harris said Department of Defense personnel do get guidance about limiting personal profiles on the internet and operational security measures to take home and abroad. But "recent data releases emphasize the need for situational awareness when members of the military share personal information," she said. "DoD takes matters like these very seriously and is reviewing the situation to determine if any additional training or guidance is required."

Intel Chips With Meltdown, Spectre Protection to Arrive This Year

How these new chips will protect against Meltdown and Spectre isn't totally clear. Both vulnerabilities deal with performance-enhancing features in the chips that can help speed up a computer's processes. But because the changes involve silicon-based fixes on the hardware level, the protections will probably go beyond the firmware patches Intel has been rolling out for existing PCs affected by the vulnerabilities.

How to install Microsoft Core fonts on Linux

Fonts. For some people the word is nothing more than five letters combined together, in a specific way, to make, well, a word. For a certain set of people, however, the word font is a gateway to wonder and a limitless landscape to be explored. If you're a Linux user, you know there's a certain subset of fonts that are very often required, but never installed by default. The fonts I'm talking about are the Microsoft Core fonts. These include the likes of Andale Mono, Arial Black, Arial, Comic Sans MS, Courier New, Georgia, Impact, Times New Roman, Trebuchet, Verdana, and Webdings. Some of these fonts are pretty important, especially when you're having to exchange files with other users. Without Arial or Times New Roman, you might find yourself in a bit of pickle.

​Linux 4.15: Good news and bad news about Meltdown and Spectre | ZDNet

Torvalds continued, "While Spectre/Meltdown has obviously been the big news this release cycle, it's worth noting that we obviously had all the *normal* updates going on too, and the work everywhere else didn't just magically stop, even if some developers have been distracted by CPU issues. In the *big* picture, 4.15 looks perfectly normal, with two thirds of the full 4.15 patch being about drivers ... not by CPU bug mitigation."
