Reddit user discovers Siri’s potty mouth | Cult of Mac

Siri may be a friendly (if slightly dim) neighborhood smart assistant, but not everything about Apple's A.I. voice is entirely G-rated. Over the weekend, Reddit went Siri mad after one user noted that it was possible to get Siri to spout our the word "mother*@$^%r" in response to a seemingly innocuous question. Check

2 The T-Mobile and Sprint merger: The numbers and assumptions you need to know | ZDNet

T-Mobile and Sprint are merging to create a big play for 5G by combining networks and wireless spectrum. However, this chore will take three to four years.

Windows 10 April 2018 update: everything you need to know

That means that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which was released in August 2016 is no longer supported and will not receive further bug fixes and security updates. The Creators Update, released in April 2017 will no longer be supported from 9 October this year, so the only way to keep using a supported version of Windows 10 is to keep upgrading.

T-Mobile, Sprint will finally get hitched in $26B mega mobile deal

But T-Mobile and Sprint run on different network standards, which complicates the integration process. T-Mobile Chief Operating Officer Mike Sievert, who will stay on as COO of the combined company, pointed to the company's successful of integration of MetroPCS, which also ran on a different standard. He said T-Mobile would migrate the network away from CDMA over the next three years.

T-Mobile’s and Sprint’s 5G merger is necessary for them, and good for us

For engineers and customers alike, it’s not just supported radio frequencies that are important to 5G — it’s their ubiquity. Right now, AT&T and Verizon have each committed to early 5G rollouts in only handfuls of cities, leaving most of their customers to fall back on 4G networks until 5G becomes available in 2019 or 2020. If a particular new service depends on 5G, such as connected autonomous cars, it won’t be available to a carrier’s customers in a given market until a carrier specifically built 5G towers there… which could be a problem for something as mobile as a car. If T-Mobile and Sprint hadn’t agreed to merge, their limited individual abilities to reach thousands of cities would have really inhibited their “national” 5G rollouts, and thus the viability of 5G-dependent mobile services.

Here's why Thanos is the best Marvel villain yet

This alone makes him the best villain -- after all, how many movies end with the bad guy winning and the heroes losing big time? Best of all, as the movie ended, it didn't do a "The Avengers will return." Instead it points out that it's Thanos who will return. You didn't see that for the Vulture, or the Red Skull or other more iconic bad guys such as Ultron (who, again is boring, and had the movie named after him as well).

3 of the biggest threats facing governments and businesses, according to Akamai Technologies

Akamai has a fairly strong presence within almost any vertical and given our reach across the internet we actually see a lot of things that we can actually take control of on behalf of our customers and be able to understand the traffic patterns, understand what kind of devices as well as what applications individuals might be going to, but just as important it's an advantage in that given the fact that we're so close to the end user, again 90% of the internet users in the world, we can actually invoke through our intelligence and big machine learning and big data the ability to be able to ward off and mitigate the vast majority of web threats out at the edge as opposed to in our customers data centers so we have a unique advantage because of our distribution and visibility into traffic data and consumer oriented traffic patterns to be able to ward off threats at the edge as opposed to close by the data center.

The 11 biggest 'Infinity War' questions that 'Avengers 4' must answer

Remember this epic shot from the first "Infinity War" trailer? It's not in the movie! In fact, the Hulk, featured prominently running with the other Avengers in the scene, only appears at the beginning of the film. At some point, directors Joe and Anthony Russo decided that they didn't want Bruce Banner to Hulk-out during the battle in Wakanda. Throughout the movie, Banner has trouble unleashing the beast, and the Hulk repeatedly shouts "No!" in his head mid-transformation. There's something going on with Banner/the Hulk and it's something we hope is explored in "Avengers 4."

Here’s How Facebook Can Regain Trust At Its F8 Conference

In his post this week, Zuckerberg said that Facebook’s major focus this year is “to keep people safe, and to keep building the experiences people expect from us. We are taking a broader view of our responsibility–to not only give people powerful tools, but to make sure these tools are used for good.” That will take a while. But the F8 stage provides the company with the opportunity it needs to start rebuilding trust. Though it may not answer every question on the minds of users, developers, and investors, it should overcome its fears–and any new sense that its rising stock price lets it off the hook–and do its best to put minds at ease.

Russia just launched the world’s first floating nuclear power plant

Called the Academik Lomonosov, the two-reactor 70-megawatt floating power plant has been 11 years in the making. Russia started work on it way back in 2007 at a cost of $232 million. The plant is owned by the state-run nuclear energy corporation Rosatom . Currently, the ship, which must be towed and cannot navigate on its own, has left St. Petersburg on a route that will take it around Norway to a Russian town called Murmansk, where it will be supplied with nuclear fuel. From there it will head to the Arctic to its new home of the Russian city of Pevek, where 100,000 people live and work. Other countries such as the U.S. and China have worked on floating nuclear power plants before, but Russia is the first to christen one.

​Digital transformation gut check: Sorry state or natural selection? | ZDNet

With that lens, Forrester's survey may not reflect that digital transformation is so sorry after all. What the survey does reveal is that digital transformation is hitting a few not-so-surprising potholes. Forrester noted that digital transformation is an ongoing effort that'll never end. Some folks get that concept, but most folks don't. Companies are no different. Enterprises that don't get the digital game will simply be replaced by ones that do. A sorry state today may just be natural selection and innovation running its course.

Opinion | Happy Birthday, Karl Marx. You Were Right!

Racial and sexual oppression have been added to the dynamic of class exploitation. Social justice movements like Black Lives Matter and #MeToo, owe something of an unspoken debt to Marx through their unapologetic targeting of the “eternal truths” of our age. Such movements recognize, as did Marx, that the ideas that rule every society are those of its ruling class and that overturning those ideas is fundamental to true revolutionary progress.

Healthcare groups can be "perfect storm" of vulnerability to hackers

Every industry is a target for hackers and a number of different hackers means you need to have a number of different solutions. TechRepublic's Dan Patterson met with Mike Simon, CEO of Cryptonite to discuss how hacks in the healthcare field will continue to grow in 2018, and how organizations can protect themselves. Whether or not we will see more hacks in the healthcare sector depends on a hacker's perspective, Simon said. The way hackers seek potential targets is by looking for easy access, the seriousness of an attack, and how much money they will get out of it, he added. "When you look at healthcare locations, it's sort of the perfect storm," Simon said. There are organizations that don't have a good amount of security professionals protecting the organization, and they also have medical devices that weren't designed to protect against attacks.
