Best back-to-school tech for under $100

With music taken care of, let's move to video. Modern dorm life is all about video on demand, and the $70 Roku Streaming Stick Plus offers the best bang for the buck in this category. The plug-in design gives you full 4K and HDR compatibility, and a remote with both voice control and the ability to control your TV's volume and power. Oh, and it streams every major (and hundreds of minor) video service out there, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Vudu, Movies Anywhere and HBO Go.

The 3D-printed gun controversy: Everything you need to know

The back-and-forth underscores the broader fight pitting First and Second Amendment rights protecting free speech and gun ownership against public safety and the need to protect against easy access to weapons. It also comes amid a broader discussion of gun control in light of an increasing number of public shooting incidents.

Bachelorette favorite Venmo John spills all

Each week, with each new episode, we were reminded of what we'd lost on Week 5 when the clean-cut software engineer whose opening line to Becca was "I made the app for Venmo" got sent home. And each week, as we were put through the ringer with dumb men doing dumb things (I'm looking at you Chris R.), we knew that deep down, Venmo John would never stoop to such lows.

John McAfee's 'unhackable' crypto-wallet allegedly hacked a week after challenge

Hackers saying they have gained root access to the BitFi wallet. Well whoop-de-do! So what? Root acces to a device with no write or modify capability. That's as useless as a dentist license un a nuclear power plant. Can you get the money on the wallet? No. That's what matters.

Honeywell's Smart Home Security Starter Kit comes with its own Alexa speaker

The best live TV streaming services for cord-cutters

That said, if you want a cable-like experience both at home and on the go without the dead weight that a cable subscription brings, then a streaming service is likely the best fit. There's no contract to sign, and if you don't like the service you're on, you can easily switch. So whether you're looking for a basic package such as Sling TV or want to pay more for a deluxe experience from the likes of PlayStation Vue, there should be a streaming TV service to suit you.

Gamefly to shut down its streaming service at the end of August

Remember Gamefly — that game rental service you may have gotten a gift card for that one Christmas? The company announced earlier this week it was shutting down its digital streaming service, effective at the end of this month.

The best Amazon Prime perk? The terrible, terrible movies, of course

This one has it all. The acting is god-awful (I have a special soft spot for Deron McBee's especially campy turn as a terrorist -- you might know him as Motaro from Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, or as Malibu, one of the original American Gladiators). The script is laughably hackneyed (at one point, Smith rappels down the side of the building and kicks through a window, ripping Die Hard off almost shot for shot). And while it doesn't quite qualify as a softcore porn, you should still put the kids to bed before watching, because the film includes a cringeworthy handful of jarringly out-of-place sex scenes, including a flashback sequence that literally starts in the middle of a gunfight.

Fortnite won't be on Google Play, so here's how Android users can get it

We’re trying to make our software available to users in as economically efficient a way as possible. That means distributing the software directly to them, taking payment through Mastercard, Visa, Paypal, and other options, and not having a store take 30 percent. If you look at it, the stores on the smartphone platforms actually do very little. They’ll put ads up in front of your game. When you search for Fortnite on iOS you’ll often get PUBG or Minecraft ads. Whoever bought that ad in front of us is the top result when searching for Fortnite. It’s just a bad experience.

The Best Mac Antivirus Protection of 2018

As a Mac user, you might be tempted to feel a little extra smart, a little superior. Every day brings news about another malware or ransomware attack on Windows, or Android. You hardly ever see similar reports about Mac attacks. But hardly ever isn't never, and in truth, the number of macOS-centered attacks is growing steadily. Ransomware, in particular, is ramping up, and installing antivirus to remove ransomware after the attack does nothing to restore your files. Be smart; install antivirus protection now. We've scanned the field of Mac antivirus protection and made you a list of the best, to help you choose.

Proper Apple Watch Dock review: A proper charger for your wearable | Cult of Mac

Since the Proper stand doesn’t come with its own power source, you will need to buy an extra cable if you want to use the dock as a spare charger. On the plus side, since you will be using an actual Apple charger, you won’t be gambling on some uncertified third-party charger to juice up your precious wearable.

The Best PC Games

$59.99 %displayPrice% at %seller% Nier: Automata is an action-RPG developed by Platinum Games, the studio behind the Bayonetta games, and directed by Yoko Taro, the creator of the Drakengard series and the original Nier. Platinum Games' previous works excel on the gameplay front, but their stories are generally campy schlock. Taro's games, on the other hand, are brilliantly depressing stories tied together with weak gameplay. Nier: Automata is a marriage of Platinum Games' intense action combat and Taro's wacky, yet somber storytelling, and is easily one of the better games released in 2017, thanks to the hot android-on-robot combat. Unfortunately, Nier: Automata suffers from some technical issues. A lack of developer support compounds this, so you'll need to rely on fan-made patches if you want to get the very best performance out of the game.

25 A safe harbor for hackers disclosing security vulnerabilities | ZDNet

"We're in the business of finding vulnerabilities by introducing and encouraging the intelligence and creativity of the white-hat hacker community," said Casey Ellis, Bugcrowd founder, and CTO. "This can be a frightening concept for people who build, run and protect software, but it's necessary to compete against the intelligence of the adversaries that are out there. Standardization is the best way to negate any legal or reputational blowback while still attracting the best hunters to your program."

Ground-breaking Science Reveals People Buried at Stonehenge Came from Way Out West

John Pouncett, a lead author on the paper and Spatial Technology Officer at Oxford's School of Archaeology, said: 'The powerful combination of stable isotopes and spatial technology gives us a new insight into the communities who built Stonehenge. The cremated remains from the enigmatic Aubrey Holes and updated mapping of the biosphere suggest that people from the Preseli Mountains not only supplied the bluestones used to build the stone circle, but moved with the stones and were buried there too.'

This 'true' home theater fulfilled a childhood dream for this Illinois man

Jim says: "I knew I wasn't going to be able to spend tens of thousands of dollars on this so I wanted to prove a point that you can have a true home theater on a relatively low budget and still get an awesome picture and booming sound. Most people overdo it with monster amps, giant floor speakers and tons of equipment. For small areas like this, it isn't necessary, except for showing off!"

Google's rumored return to China triggers pointed questions from Senate

Sens. Mark Warner, Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton, Ron Wyden, Cory Gardner and Robert Menendez sent a letter Friday to Google CEO Sundar Pichai asking those questions, after reports Wednesday that Google would be returning to China with a new search engine designed to blacklist search terms and websites referencing human rights, democracy, religion and peaceful protest.

This $26 in-ear headphone's sound will surprise you

I also spent time with the KZ's ZS10 in-ears, which run $58 on Amazon in the US, £59 in the UK, and AU$66 in Australia. First the good news: it's a more-refined and clearer-sounding headphone, no issues with brightness on this one. The ZS10 sports five drivers in each earpiece (one dynamic, four balanced armatures), and impedance is rated at 32 ohms, but the ZS10 didn't fit nearly as well in my ears as the ZSA. Worse yet, the ZS10's silicone ear tips stuck in my ear canals when I took the headphones off, which happened a few times. I'm pretty sure I know why -- the ZS10's ear nozzles where the tips attach are too smooth, so the nozzles don't provide enough grip on the tips. That's a deal-breaker for me, as I don't enjoy retrieving tips stuck in my ears!  All in all, the ZS10's poor fit and nozzle design make it impossible to recommend.

32 Apple supplier TSMC hit by computer virus | Hacker News

For those of you thinking that TSMC only gets set back by the time it took to recover the equipment from the virus (1-2 days), realize that there are some critical steps in the manufacturing process that require completion within X time or the wafer is trash. Also realize that wafers take several weeks of fab processing, and this may be a substantial hit to their output for a while. They might even need to rob wafer capacity from smaller companies to placate the tier 1 customers like Apple. reply

Wait, an 2018 iPhone delay already?

Apple may be ditching the free headphone jack adapter that comes in the box of this year's iPhones if the rumors are true. The latest iOS 12 beta release has some hidden clues that hint at dual SIM support for at least one of the 2018 iPhones. And even the thousand dollar price tag of the iPhone X didn't stop consumers from buying a bunch of them; 43.3 million units according to Apple's third quarter earning reports which were released this week. But the biggest news: Apple hit a trillion, and it has the iPhone to thank! Here's a roundup of the most important iPhone news and rumors of the week.

39 Internet Archive, decentralized | Hacker News

I wanted to submit an article about this but couldn't find anything either. My understanding is that this loads content from various protocols (listed at the top of the page), many of which support replicating data in a decentralized way. As far as I know, there's no blockchain involved in anything here yet. If you browse to the Community Video section and choose a video, you can see peer information as though downloading through WebTorrent. If I disable WebTorrent and look at a video, I don't see the peer information and it seems to fall back to HTTP. Pretty cool! It looks like almost everything is only seeded by the Internet Archive right now, but hopefully they want to encourage more people to participate. reply

How to integrate your Thunderbird profile with your Twitter account

Do you use Thunderbird? And does your business depend upon Twitter to spread the word of your services? If this is you, you might find it more efficient if you could tweet from the same app you email from. Fortunately, the developers of the open source email client Thunderbird thought of that. With a quick and easy setup, you can have your Twitter account integrated into Thunderbird. This integration doesn't offer all the bells and whistles of a standard Twitter client or the Twitter website. In fact, all you can do is view your Twitter home feed and tweet. There's no direct messaging, seeing trends, or even viewing notifications. You get to read and post—that's it. But what more do you want, especially when efficiency is the name of the game. So, how to you set up this integration? Let me show you.


Lego's 6,000-piece Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle is truly magical

This includes Harry Potter himself, as well as his buddies Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger and a selection of students and teachers

Don’t try to rejuvenate your vagina, FDA warns after scolding companies

But, the agency notes, there’s no proof that these devices are effective for any of the “rejuvenating” procedures companies claim and some celebrities promote. These include empowering-sounding treatments that claim to tighten tissue, relieve pain, and boost sexual pleasure. More specifically, the companies collectively claim that the devices are able to treat vaginal “laxity,” pain during urination or intercourse, decreased sexual sensation, and vaginal dryness, itching, or atrophy. Some of these issues are symptoms related to menopause, urinary incontinence, or sexual function issues.
