Spy-on-your-home Y-Cam cameras removes free cloud storage bit

Home security company Y-Cam has enraged its users after pulling its free lifetime cloud storage for its cameras.

Customers were told they had 14 days' notice to download any footage they required before the free service was deactivated.

Y-Cam will now offer one year of free seven-day rolling cloud storage for its new cameras, while existing cameras will lose their ability to record unless a £2.99 a month or £9.99 a month subscription is paid. The cameras cannot store video locally, meaning Y-Cam's own service is the only option for storage.

"Wreaking Havoc" - HP Installs System-Slowing Spyware On Its PCs Without Consent

On the heels of Lenovo’s massive $3.5 million fine for preinstalling adware on laptops without users‘ consent, Hewlett-Packard is jumping in with both feet when it comes to installing spyware on its PCs without the consumer’s permission.

According to numerous reports gathered by Computer World, the brand is deploying a telemetry client (a system data that is uploaded by the Connected User Experience and Telemetry component), on customer computers without asking permission.

The software, which was first identified on November 15 of this year, is called “HP Touchpoint Analytics Service” and appears to replace the self-managed HP Touchpoint Manager solution. According to the official productivity description, it features “the tools you need to ensure all your managed devices’ security — and brings you greater peace of mind”. The problem is, it’s installing itself without permission and is wreaking havoc on customers’ systems.

And the consumers are noticing:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we move further into the 21st century, the companies which create our computers, and this government, will be more and more in control of them, and the data on them, than we will be allowed to be.

Trust in media grows under Trump, amid partisan split: survey

Good example of Faux news.

Washington (AFP) - Americans' overall trust in the news media has increased since the election of Donald Trump despite a rise in those who believe the president's claims of "fake news," a survey showed Monday.
The survey prepared for the Poynter Institute found a sharp partisan divide on the media, with Republicans and Trump supporters skeptical about news organizations and others more confident.

Drone collisions with airliners may not be fatal, US study suggests

Computer simulations carried out by Assure found that a 1.2kg quadcopter striking the windscreen of a commercial jet airliner travelling at 250 knots simply bounced off, leaving a few marks or chips on the windscreen.

“Due to the low angle impact in the transparency (~45°), the UAS impacts were deflected without inducing considerable damage to the windshield,” wrote the study’s authors. The worst damage likely to be caused was permanent damage to the windscreen but no failure of the whole structure.

Why Is There So Much Human Shit on the Streets?
By Noah Sanders

There are more than 10,000 people living on the streets at any given time in our fair City by the Bay. San Francisco must be scrambling hand over foot to provide at least some semblance of a plan for their very apparent human needs. Right? Wrong. I reached out to Jennifer Friedenbach, the executive director of San Francisco’s Coalition on Homelessness over the phone, and she laid out the overarching cause of our defecation dilemma.

Bitcoin is a consensus currency, not tested for failure yet: Raunak Onkar, PPFAS Mutual Fund

ET Now: What is going on with Bitcoin, is this an indication of risk in the world?
Raunak Onkar: Not sure. Bitcoin is not regulated by governments, and it is a distributor ledger which manages all the transactions. Since nobody knows who is regulating it, you have to trust each other who are transacting in bitcoin to make sure that value exists in the products we are selling through bitcoin. That is the system we understand so far. I am not an expert on bitcoin. I just track it academically for my own interest.

Your Taxpayer Dollars Now Funding GMO Corporate Propaganda

By Anna Meyer

Congress wants to spend millions peddling corporate talking points on GMOs.

"We recently reported to you how Congress planned to spend $3 million of your dollars to teach people the virtues of GMOs – as if Big Biotech can’t spend its own money on that! It appears they got their wish…"

While Congress hasn’t accomplished much in 2017, it did manage to pass a budget resolution — and within that budget, a sum of $3 million stands out...

GEORGE ORWELL PREDICTED CAMERAS WOULD WATCH US IN OUR HOMES; HE NEVER IMAGINED WE’D GLADLY BUY AND INSTALL THEM OURSELVES

Normalization—the mainstreaming of people and ideas previously banished from public life for good reason—has become the operative description of a massive societal shift toward something awful. Whether it’s puff pieces on neo-Nazis in major national newspapers or elected leaders who are also documented sexual predators, a good deal of work goes into making the previously unthinkable seem mundane or appealing.

Amazon Workers Treated Like ‘Animals’ In Exhausting Working Conditions, Reporter Reveals

Amazon workers are being treated like “animals,” forced to work to the point of physical collapse, it has been revealed. An undercover reporter for the Daily Mirror laid bare the working conditions at the world’s largest retailer.

Daily Mirror reporter Alan Selby found that workers at the Amazon plant in Tilbury, Essex, were so tired that they “fell asleep on their feet” while working a 55-hour week.

Taking The Public Out Of “Public Health” To Reclaim Freedom

By Rosanne Lindsay

There are no mandates in a free society. There is only choice. Today, mandates are what is on the Public Health menu. However, before you take your pitchfork to the bureaucrats, ask yourself this: To achieve freedom, is it better to dismantle the mandate or deconstruct the language?..

Self-driving cars programmed to decide who dies in a crash

It’s a bright, sunny day and you’re alone in your spanking new self-driving vehicle, sprinting along the two-lane Tunnel of Trees on M-119 high above Lake Michigan north of Harbor Springs. You’re sitting back, enjoying the view. You’re looking out through the trees, trying to get a glimpse of the crystal blue water below you, moving along at the 45-mile-an-hour speed limit.

As you approach a rise in the road, heading south, a school bus appears, driving north, one driven by a human, and it veers sharply toward you. There is no time to stop safely, and no time for you to take control of the car.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a scenario right out of "I Robot", the 2004 film staring Will Smith, where just such a calculation was made, and spares the Smith's character at the price of a little girl, mortally injured in the other car in the crash, and left to die.

But science fiction morphs into science fact at a really rapid pace in the 21st century, and such technology will become the norm faster than we can calculate at this point.

Turn off cameras and tracking devices in children's Christmas presents to prevent hacking, Information Commissioner tells parents

Parents should turn off the cameras and automatic tracking devices in their children’s Christmas presents because of the risk of hacking, the Information Commissioners’ Office has warned.

With a rise in the number of ‘smart’ toys and devices gracing the wish list this year, parents should consider the safety of them being connected directly to the internet before giving them as gifts, according to the data regulator.

When adults are not going to personally use cameras in toys to view what is happening remotely then they should consider turning the function off all together, Deputy Commissioner Steve Wood said.

The warning comes amid growing concerns about the ability of criminals to hack into toys containing sensors, microphones, cameras, data storage and other multi-media capabilities.

For more than half a century, the sugar industry has used Big Tobacco tactics to suppress sugar/cancer link and to confuse the science

UCSF researchers have published an important paper in PLOS Biology that draws on internal documents from the US sugar industry lobby that shows that the industry deliberately suppressed research on the link between sucrose and bladder cancer and heart disease, and then deliberately sowed misinformation about the health effects of sugar, using tactics straight out of the tobacco industry's cancer-denial playbook.

Marijuana farmers are destroying natural ecosystems as quest for profits outweighs “green” agricultural practices

Natural News: People who turn to medical marijuana are often drawn to the fact that it’s natural. This is indeed a great quality from a health standpoint, but environment-minded marijuana buyers, take note: New research shows that marijuana farming in remote locations is having a negative effect on the environment.

After studying the ecological consequences that marijuana farming had in Northern California, researchers from Ithaca College discovered that small farms were having a surprisingly big impact.

STUDY OF 500,000 TEENS SUGGESTS ASSOCIATION BETWEEN EXCESSIVE SCREEN TIME AND DEPRESSION

It’s a cultural stereotype as old as the landline: teenagers love their phones. But for North American teen girls, especially, increasing smartphone use could have a darker side. Depression and suicide rates in teenagers have jumped in the last decade—doubling between 2007 and 2015 for girls—and the trend suspiciously coincides with when smartphones became their constant companions. A recent study places their screen time around nine hours per day.

A Boeing 757 was hacked and now DHS is worried more planes could be at risk

A Department of Homeland Security official admitted that the agency was able to remotely hack into a Boeing 757 during a test in 2016.
The DHS official indicated that he and his team were able to do so without having any direct contact with the aircraft or using any materials that would be flagged by security.
While the exact details of the hack are confidential, Boeing insists that the hackers were not able to take control of the aircraft's flight systems.

FDA, DEA LAUNCH MASSIVE ASSAULT ON KRATOM – DRUG WAR FOR MIRACLE PLANT RAMPING UP

To no one’s surprise, the U.S. government, after hysterically declaring a “national emergency” over America’s opioid crisis, is once again setting its sights on Kratom, the non-addictive natural plant that has helped thousands of Americans wean themselves off opioids. In 2015, the DEA announced its plans to place Kratom on the list of Controlled Substances (in the same scheduling level as heroin to be exact) but, amid public outcry, the agency backed off, deferring to FDA “review” and “advice.” Many optimistic Kratom activists were tempted to rest on their laurels, trusting that the FDA would prove to be more reasonable in relation to Kratom and hoping the testimonials, overwhelming public support for Kratom, and the science itself would win the day.

Shocked mother finds her 10-year-old son's face can unlock her iPhone X

There are countless reasons you might not want a 10-year-old to have access to your new $1000 smartphone.

And, after setting up Apple’s FaceID, Staten Island mom Sana Sherwani joked there was ‘no way’ her son could get into it now.

Unfortunately, however, the authentication system didn’t work as planned.

In a video posted to YouTube, the shocked parents have revealed how Apple’s FaceID registers both Sherwani's face and that of her son Ammar, allowing the fifth-grader instant access to his mom’s phone.

OnePlus Left A Backdoor That Allows Root Access Without Unlocking Bootloader

Just over a month after OnePlus was caught collecting personally identifiable information on its users, the Chinese smartphone company has been found leaving a backdoor on almost all OnePlus handsets.

A Twitter user, who goes by the name "Elliot Anderson" (named after Mr. Robot's main character), discovered a backdoor (an exploit) in all OnePlus devices running OxygenOS that could allow anyone to obtain root access to the devices.

The application in question is "EngineerMode," a diagnostic testing application made by Qualcomm for device manufacturers to easily test all hardware components of the device.

This APK comes pre-installed (accidentally left behind) on most OnePlus devices, including OnePlus 2, 3, 3T, and the newly-launched OnePlus 5. We can confirm its existence on the OnePlus 2, 3 and 5.

Connected toys have ‘worrying’ security issues

Consumer watchdog Which? has called on retailers to stop selling some popular toys it says have "proven" security issues.

Those toys include Furby Connect, the i-Que robot, Cloudpets and Toy-fi Teddy.

Which? found that there was no authentication required between the toys and the devices they could link with via Bluetooth.

Two of the manufacturers said they took security very seriously.

The lack of authentication meant that, in theory, any device within physical range could link to the toy and take control or send messages, the watchdog said.

Electric cars are NOT as green as you think (and some are worse polluters than petrol!) GUY WALTERS provides a reality check about the vehicles

Research recently published by the Trancik Lab of the highly esteemed Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) could wipe the smug expressions off thousands of electric car drivers’ faces.

The boffins at the Trancik Lab have shown that an electric Tesla Model S P100D saloon produces more carbon dioxide, at 226g per kilometre, than a petrol-driven run-around such as the Mitsubishi Mirage, which is responsible for just 192g/km.

And unfortunately for Tesla drivers who would rev their engines in fury and declare the research an anomaly, the MIT finding backs up that of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, which last year declared: ‘Larger electric vehicles can have higher life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions than smaller conventional vehicles.’

Hackers 'fool' Apple's iPhone X Face ID with a simple £100 mask just a week after the handset's release

It's one of the most wanted features in the iPhone X, but it seems that Face ID may not be as safe as Apple thinks.

Cyber-security researchers claim they have fooled the face recognition technology with a mask that costs just £114 ($150) to make.

The findings suggest that face recognition is not yet mature enough to guarantee security for computers and smartphones, according to the researchers.

Apple admits 'coldgate' bug that makes iPhone X screens unresponsive if temperatures drops suddenly

Just a week after the iPhone X officially hit the shelves, customers have begun reporting problems with the $999 device's responsiveness in cold temperatures.

On Reddit, several iPhone X owners complained the handset’s screen does not work upon stepping outside into a wintry chill.

While Apple recommends using its devices in temperatures above the freezing point, the issue so far appears to be occurring within the described range, causing problems with swiping and even FaceID.

Have YOU seen the 'green line of death' on your iPhone X? Users reveal strange flaw appearing on screens

A ‘green line of death’ has appeared on more than two dozen iPhone X screens, baffling owners who’ve only had the $999 handset for a few days.

On forums, social media, and Apple Support Communities, iPhone X users have revealed a mysterious green line appeared seemingly out of nowhere, despite the phones functioning normally when first taken out of the box.

Apple has not yet commented on the issue, but some suspect it may be the result of an electrical fault, causing the green sub-pixels in the phones' new diamond subpixel pattern to illuminate, according to TechCrunch.

Snapchat loses $40m on flop Spectacles

The company behind Snapchat has taken a $40m (£30m) hit to its finances after its video-recording sunglasses failed to sell as well as hoped.

Snap launched Spectacles in September 2016, originally selling them only through pop-up vending machines.

Pressing a button on the glasses records a short video that can be shared on the Snapchat messaging app.

But on Tuesday the company revealed costs of $40m (£30m) due to "excess inventory" and cancelled orders.

We leave the faucet running while we brush our teeth, we throw out tons of food because it looks misshapen, and we use hairspray even though we know damn well we've been bald for over 15 years. But surprisingly, our worse sin might be that we encourage the tech industry to keep churning out slightly better bricks to browse Facebook on, despite the fact that those companies are basically Captain Planet villains with stock tickers.

Drop test concludes iPhone X is the “most breakable iPhone”

As we suspected in our review, the iPhone X is not faring well in the first drop and durability tests. Two different drop tests showed immediate damage to the device.

Consumer electronics site CNET ran a drop test from a height of three feet. The glass at the corner of the phone cracked on the very first test, which dropped the phone on its side. A second test dropped the phone on its face, leading to even more fractures. CNET concluded that dropping the phone without a case is "out of the question."

The damage CNET encountered was only cosmetic—a more extreme drop test from SquareTrade showed damage to functionality as well.

On Legalization’s 5th Anniversary, Here’s What We’ve Learned

Monday, November 6, 2017, marks the five-year anniversary of the glorious back day in 2012 when Colorado and Washington voted to become the first two US states to legalize recreational cannabis.

Since then, the data generated by those two states have refuted pretty much every dire fear that the nation’s drug warriors predicted would come to pass. Legalizing and regulating cannabis has made for a safer and more just society, while ushering in the beginning of the end of a costly, massively corrupt, and wholly counterproductive war on a largely beneficial plant.

Damascus Calls Israel 'Agent of Terrorism' After Airstrike on Syrian Factory

Tel Aviv and Damascus that have been in the state of war since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, have repeatedly exchanged tit-for-tat attacks.
BEIRUT (Sputnik) — The Syrian Foreign Ministry has sent a letter to the UN Security Council over an Israeli airstrike on a copper factory in Hassia area in Syria's Homs province, according to the ministry's documents published on Thursday.

"Yet another aggression of Israel… shows that Israeli authorities are not satisfied with the state terrorism against the Arab population in occupied Palestine, Syria and Lebanon. They want to play the role of the official agent of terrorism," the ministry's document read, as quoted by the SANA news agency.

Damascus' statement comes a day after a Lebanese security service source told Sputnik that Israeli aircraft had carried out an attack on targets in Syria from Lebanon's airspace.
