Apple Discontinues the iPod Nano and Shuffle

Apple Just Killed the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle

Apple launched both the Shuffle and the Nano back in 2005. So after more than 10 years on the market—and being mostly replaced by the iPhone and the iPod Touch, which is still available on the site—it might be time for them to be retired.

The Best Encryption Software of 2017

Virtual Private Network, or VPN , to encrypt your own internet traffic. From your PC to the VPN company's server, all your data is encrypted, and that's a great thing. However, unless you're connected to a secure HTTPS website, your traffic is not encrypted between the VPN server and the site. And of course the VPN's encryption doesn't just magically rub off on files you share. Using a VPN is a great way to protect your internet traffic when you're traveling, but it's not a solution for encrypting your local files.

Security flaw in 3G, 4G LTE cell networks lets hackers track phone locations

Ravishankar Borgaonkar and Lucca Hirschi, who co-authored the research, found a weakness in the authentication and key agreement, which lets a phone communicate securely with the subscriber's cell network. The agreement protocol relies on a counter that's stored on the phone operator's systems to authenticate the device and to prevent replay attacks, but the researchers found that the counter isn't well protected and partially leaks. That can allow an attacker to monitor consumption patterns, such as when calls are made and when text messages are sent, and track the physical location of a cell phone.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom design opens doors for an electric future

While the Phantom was revealed publicly today, I first saw it in its aluminum spaceframe flesh at a private viewing for select customers and media in New York City in June. We were ushered into a dimly lit Chelsea studio, where — in a dramatic flourish — the car was revealed on a rotating stage, as if we were watching a production of theater in the round. Both Taylor and Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös were there to present the car and describe its nuances. Pageantry is essential to the presentation of a new Rolls-Royce. The brand, owned by parent company BMW, makes every effort to distinguish itself as a distinctly unforgettable British, super luxury carmaker.

Anthony Scaramucci Called Me to Unload About White House Leakers, Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon

“Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information. He responded by threatening to fire the entire White House communications staff. “What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over,” he said. I laughed, not sure if he really believed that such a threat would convince a journalist to reveal a source. He continued to press me and complain about the staff he’s inherited in his new job. “I ask these guys not to leak anything and they can’t help themselves,” he said. “You’re an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I’m asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it.”
