Facebook Goes to War With Ad Blockers

It seems like Facebook has figured out a way to serve your ads even if you have an ad blocker installed. This may mean Facebook has a new way of serving the ads so that ad blockers can’t detect them. I’d guess this has the potential to turn into a blocking arms race, as the developer of ad blockers figure out how to get past Facebook’s new method for serving ads.

It Looks Like Apple Is Seriously Building an All-Glass iPhone

It remains to be seen whether the all-glass iPhone will ever go on sale. This year’s iPhone 7 probably won’t will include any of this new technology, and it will probably take a couple of years before an all-glass iPhone is ever shown to the public. Some suggest that the radical redesign could be ready for the iPhone’s 10th anniversary in 2017. But if patent filings are any indication (and they often can be), then its appears that Apple really wants to create the all-glass abomination we always hoped it wouldn’t in the not-too-distant-future.

Apple issues fifth developer betas of iOS 10, watchOS 3, tvOS 10, macOS Sierra

Just over a week after providing developers with the fourth beta pre-release builds of its major upcoming platforms, Apple followed up with the fifth betas of iOS 10, watchOS 3, tvOS 10 and macOS Sierra. The updates can be installed through Software Update on their respective, registered devices. macOS updates are available on the Mac App Store. Apple's release notes simply state that the updates contain bug fixes and improvements. A fifth beta of Xcode 8 is also available. The new betas are identified with the following build numbers: macOS Sierra beta 5 (16A286a)iOS 10 beta 5 (14A5335b)watchOS 3 beta 5 (14S5315a)tvOS 10 beta 5 (14T5321a)Xcode 8 beta 5 (8S193k) The release pattern for betas is increasing as Apple approaches a final public launch of its next-generation software. Fourth betas of the software arrived just last Monday , making this turnaround faster than the two week gap that came after the third betas. As usual, Apple has advised that its beta builds should only be deployed on devices dedicated for software development. All of Apple's four major platforms were announced at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

Researchers crack open unusually advanced malware that hid for 5 years

The malware—known alternatively as "ProjectSauron" by researchers from Kaspersky Lab and "Remsec" by their counterparts from Symantec—has been active since at least 2011 and has been discovered on 30 or so targets. Its ability to operate undetected for five years is a testament to its creators, who clearly studied other state-sponsored hacking groups in an attempt to replicate their advances and avoid their mistakes. State-sponsored groups have been responsible for malware like the Stuxnet- or National Security Agency-linked Flame , Duqu , and Regin . Much of ProjectSauron resides solely in computer memory and was written in the form of Binary Large Objects, making it hard to detect using antivirus.

It’s still a much-loved machine to this day.

P&G to Scale Back Targeted Facebook Ads

One category the company is scaling back: smaller websites that lack the reach of sites such as Facebook, Google and YouTube.

Apple denies price fixing allegations in Russian mobile market

Apple has categorically denied that it has manipulated the Russian smartphone market, and has declared that resellers in the country instead set their own pricing. "Resellers set their own prices for the Apple products they sell in Russia and around the world," Apple said in a statement to Reuters . The Russian anti-monopoly service FAS said that it had opened its case against Apple and the 16 resellers in the country after a citizen complained that identical prices had been set across the country for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models. Apple's relationship with the Russian government has been stormy since the online Apple store opened in 2013 . In February, Russia's internet advisor to President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin announced plans to raise taxes on American companies, singling out Apple and Google as specific targets. In 2014, the Russian government requested that Apple hand over source code for investigation, following the Snowden revelations of governmental spying with smartphones. An Russian official claimed that companies that do not hand over the code "may have undeclared capabilities in their products.

Qualcomm chip security holes affect most Android phones

Thankfully, three of the four issues have been patched, and a fix is coming for the fourth. However, there's a very real chance that you won't get a fix. People with newer Nexus devices already have their fix, but it may take a while for vendors like LG and Samsung to test the solution with their heavily customized takes on Android. And while plenty of security vulnerabilities go unfixed on older hardware that no longer gets support, that lack of updates is a particularly sore point with QuadRooter -- many of those 900 million devices are far from the cutting edge.

I knew Will Smith wasn’t playing himself, but Deadshot, and that “scaley guy” was probably Killer Croc, “weird nice girl who whispers a lot” was likely Katana because I hadn’t heard anything about her being a villain, and “handsome long haired guy’s head explodes” was apparently a spoiler about the death of Adam Beach’s Slipknot.

Soylent’s new drink will replace your breakfast and morning coffee

Coffiest, like Soylent before it, is meant for people too busy to set aside time for their meals, while also appealing to those who don't quite have the time to mix powder and water. Here, there's soy protein and alga oil for nutrition, with actual coffee and L-theanine to reduce the jitters. The company claims that Coffiest has roughly the same amount of caffeine as two 8-ounce cups of coffee. (Which is way too much for me, but hey.) And Soylent also hopes that the drink will help ease people into drinking Soylent 2.0.

It'll take a while before the code is widely in use, we'd add -- Google doesn't expect website trials to wrap until January. Even so, this hints at a future where you don't always have to rely on native apps to interact with your Bluetooth gear.

The First Nuclear Power Plant in Belarus Is a Dangerous Fiasco

What happens when Cadillac takes on BMW?

It shows that, given time to refine models like the CTS, Cadillac is capable of very great things. The company took the learnings of the CTS, scaled down the body size, and produced the ATS and the ATS-V — and the latter is a car that really is better than the current BMW M3. Its relationship with luxury, though, is still in flux. The CT6 will continue to be refined. I’ll be especially curious to see how niche versions like the plug-in hybrid will be received. And, eventually, we’ll surely be given a true flagship, something as big and grandiose as the Caddies of old. And you can be sure that all the lessons of the "lesser" models will be incorporated.

Unfortunately, most off-the-shelf household filters are not effective at removing PFAS chemicals, although activated carbon filters and reverse osmosis methods show potential, Hu said.

The Best Gizmodo Posts of All Time (So Far)

I remember watching this unfold live as the updates got appended to the headline. Forget the fact that it might possibly have been a bad idea to mount an international crowdsourced search for the lost iPhone of the country’s most famous technology critic. Here was a tiny green dot on a map and a determined community of commenters—including Pogue, who eventually gets into the comments himself. But the is-this-really-happening commentary also marks an important turning point in our relationship with our gadgets. Yeah, Gizmodo helped find a phone (I mean Gizmodo is just generally good at finding lost iPhones, right?), but this idea that a bunch of people on the internet could organize to do that—for better or worse—is part of the conversation we’re still having today about privacy that’s gone way beyond phone-tracking features. This Gizmodo story became an early and important part of that conversation. Also important: Repeatedly making fun of David Pogue for using Lockerz.com .

The Perseid meteor shower is going to be insane this year. Here’s how to watch!

Curly Fries Haven't Changed Much in 200 Years

Sure, the world around us is slowly crumbling, the American electorate has never been angrier, human interaction has never felt less genuine, no one I’ve talked to in years seems particularly happy and everything feels utterly, inescapably hopeless—but 190 years ago curly fries were considered an “edible garnish.” Are you fucking kidding me? Our malnourished and misguided ancestors couldn’t even order a side order of these delicious grease spirals. Their lives must have been poorer for it.

What Happened After I Destroyed DJI's Beautiful New Drone

Hey, Adam. Thanks for writing. I’ve been backing-and-forthing with Mario. I’d love to have you guys look at something interesting/quirky with our technology. The thing about repairs is I have to say “no,” but let me explain. It has nothing to do with you or Gizmodo. To use an analogy, if you had a 1969 Ford Falcon, you could pretty much eyeball a cracked part and replace it, getting the car back in working order. When you roll your 2016 Lexus into a garage these days, the first thing they do (besides charging $90 an hour for labor) is connect it to a computer to run diagnostics on it. Even if you had the parts, all you could fix would be what might be cosmetically wrong with the Phantom. There’s a ton going on inside that needs to be run through multiple checks — IMUs, ESCs, barometers, vision-processing board, flight controller. Just as I hate to leave people with the impression that crashes happen — even though they do — I don’t want us to encourage folks to try to fix the P4 by themselves. They might get the cosmetic things right, but they a)void the warranty, especially if they crack it open and b)it might lead to unsafe flight.

Why It's So Hard To Change A Bad First Impression

The result? Barbara had to do nice things for more consecutive weeks to become regarded as a good person than the number of weeks she had to do bad things to become bad. Another online experiment involving 200 female participants also found that people were quick to judge when Barbara was doing wrong and much slower to believe she'd changed for the better. The researchers found similar outcomes for scenarios involving characters who tipped or shared resources in either a stingy or generous fashion.
