HTTPS snooping flaw in third-party library affected 1,000 iOS apps with millions of users

The vulnerability was fixed in AFNetworking 2.5.2, released on March 26, so the flaw was active for a little over six weeks. How many iOS apps were updated to the vulnerable version in that time frame and how many of them used it for establishing HTTPS communications? A company called SourceDNA which tracks the use of third-party components in iOS and Android apps claims to have an answer.

Philips 60W Equivalent LED (model 9290011350) Preview - CNET

At that price, Philips' new bulb is already the least expensive big-brand LED we've seen, but to further sweeten the deal, the Dutch manufacturer is offering two bulbs for the price of one at Home Depot for the first ninety days of its shelf life. That brings the cost per bulb down to something less than you'd pay for a morning latte -- and makes outfitting a whole home's worth of bulbs seem a lot more feasible.

How to migrate from iPhoto to Photos for Mac - CNET

Apple's blurring of the lines between OS X and iOS continues with the release of Photos for Mac. Photos was part of the OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 update and is meant to replace Aperture and iPhoto. iPhone users will immediately feel comfortable with its layout; Photos for Mac looks and acts like the Photos app for iOS. Apple makes it easy, holding your hand as you leave iPhoto and walk your photo library over to Photos. There are still some questions you need to answer as you move to the new Photos app, from whether you should use the option to store your library in iCloud to what you should do with your old iPhoto library.

LED Bulbs Are Now Two for $5—Officially Too Cheap to Ignore | WIRED

There are more capable and longer-lasting LEDs than the new Philips LED A16 bulbs, but you won’t find any that are cheaper. A single bulb, rated for ten years, will set you back $4.97 once they go on sale in May at Home Depot. That’s already a significant savings over Philips’ existing $9.97 60w equivalent, and in line with the most affordable options in the market. But what makes the new bulbs especially notable is that for the first three months they’re available, you’ll be able to get two bulbs for that same five bucks.

Mediagazer introduces ads for media jobs, and Techmeme's job ads now extend to its mobile site - Techmeme News

2. We've introduced job ads on Mediagazer , Techmeme's sister site for media industry news. These spots will appear both on Mediagazer's desktop and mobile sites, but with a conventional touch: they'll feature individual jobs instead of companies. Why individual jobs? Unlike many of the tech companies advertising on Techmeme, publications usually need to fill only a few specific roles, not dozens. Because entries are jobs, you may see multiple listings from the same company, unlike on Techmeme. Mediagazer's job ads are in fact the only advertisement of any sort on the site, which doesn't offer the paid event listings or sponsor posts available on Techmeme . We've populated Mediagazer's listings with jobs from several media companies at no cost, but will phase out most of these free spots in the weeks ahead.

Myth Busting the Open-Source Cloud Part 1

There’s a huge difference, though, between taking steps to ensure security with open-source cloud initiatives and writing them off because of perceived security vulnerabilities that can’t be overcome. Rather than give in to the myth, IT decision makers need to be open minded about open-source cloud, and determine which deployment model – public, private or managed private cloud – makes the most sense for a particular workload or use case.

The Big Picture: Chevy's self-driving concept car is straight out of sci-fi

Thought that Mercedes' F 015 self-driving car was futuristic? It looks old hat next to GM's autonomous electric concept, the Chevrolet-FNR . The pod-like design appears ripped straight from a sci-fi flick, complete with crystal laser lights, "dragonfly" swinging doors and sensors (including radar) that aren't as conspicuous as they are on other robotic vehicles . And that's just the outside -- inside, it's touting magnetic hubless wheel electric motors, wireless charging, swiveling front seats and eye recognition to verify the owner. As with most out-there concepts, the chances of driving what you see here are slim to none. However, it won't be at all shocking if the technology in the FNR eventually trickles down to more practical (if far less adventurous) cars.

What you need to know about Wi-Fi calling - CNET

Again, that depends. T-Mobile charges 20 cents a minute if you place a Wi-Fi call from any of its 82 " Simple Global " countries to any other country outside the US. And if you make a call from countries that fall outside this list, you can be billed a different rate. Sprint customers won't be charged for calls made to, from, or between the US, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, but they will be charged "international calling plan rates" for other countries. Republic Wireless only supports Wi-Fi calling for the US and Canada. Other than that, the carrier has no international support, which includes no support for Puerto Rico, Guam and the US Virgin Islands.

Elon Musk nearly sold Tesla to Google in 2013

Tesla frequently comes across as a fiercely independent automaker, but that wasn't always the case... at least, if you ask Bloomberg . Its sources claim that Elon Musk almost secured a deal for Google to buy Tesla in early 2013, when vehicle sales were tanking so badly that Tesla closed its factory. Reportedly, the deal would have kept Musk in charge of his company for eight years, or until Tesla's mainstream electric car (the Model 3 ) was on the road. It fell apart simply because Tesla became successful -- a last-ditch effort to close Model S sales paid off during the negotiation period, eliminating that need for a lifeline.

A few times a year, I get to see demonstrations of some of the most mind-blowing technologies and designs—explode-your-head kind of stuff—and I can’t tell a soul about them. Nobody, not even my wife. And certainly not you. Just imagine: You receive an invite from an engineering or product lead to come down and visit with a few folks at, er, Giant Tech Multinational to check out a new project, something they’re excited about and want some feedback on. Most of the time, the people doing the asking are not household names—not the Musks or Sandbergs of the world. They’re unsung talents, the ones doing the actual work of innovation, sleeves rolled up, meals skipped, families missed.

HBO is wooing millennials, but legal didn’t get the memo

The cease and desist isn’t a huge surprise given HBO’s future forward approach to cord cutters. They want users to subscribe rather than go to their local bar.

Cracking down on such screenings can’t possibly be the most efficient way to curb piracy.

How microbes define, shape -- and might even heal us

Celiac disease is related to inflammatory bowel disease and also involves an immune system component: when celiac sufferers eat wheat products, the natural gluten proteins in wheat activate the immune system, which attacks the lining of the gut, shredding it. Celiac was originally identified and named by the Greek physician Aretaeus of Cappadocia in the first or second century AD. But it wasn’t as widely known until Dutch physician Willem-Karel Dicke observed in the “Hunger Winter” of 1944–45 during World War II that when wheat was unavailable, his celiac patients survived much better. (Dicke would go on to pioneer the gluten-free diet.) There has been intense interest in whether celiac is linked to the microbiome, but at this point, the dozen or so studies have found essentially no consistent trends associating microbes with celiac. Although many studies are able to find differences between the microbiomes of celiac patients and healthy people, the bacteria in the celiac patients differ from study to study. Clearly the pattern is complex, and more work is needed to understand whether gut bacteria contribute to celiac or simply respond to the altered, gluten-free diets of celiac patients.

How to answer the question: "Am I dying?"

Knowing how to interact with a soon-to-die patient isn’t something that EMTs are trained for, says O’Reilly. He had to learn on the job, by observing colleagues and relying on his own sense of empathy. It isn’t common for first responders to talk openly about their interactions with dying patients, but, says O’Reilly, it’s vital: “I feel that people want to know. It’s one of those questions that you don’t know the answer to until you’re there: What’s going to happen when I die? What’s going to happen when I’m in that situation?” he says. “Unfortunately, I’ve seen the steps prior to death, and hopefully giving this TED Talk can give people comfort knowing that it’s not going to be that bad.”
