Kremlin backs Trump saying 'we have NOTHING' on Donald sex act allegations

According to the 35-page report, most of which cannot be independently verified, “Source D” claims Mr Trump allegedly paid for prostitutes to defile a bed where the Obamas had once slept because he “hated them”.

But Moscow officials said the "hysteria" was "complete fabrication" and "total nonsense".

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the dossier was a hoax which had been dreamt up to further damage US-Russia relations.

He said: "This information does not correspond to reality and is no more than fiction."

Why you shouldn't trust Geek Squad ever again

And it seems the geeks are making a few extra bucks. The Orange County Weekly reports that the company's repair technicians routinely search devices brought in for repair for files that could earn them $500 reward as FBI informants.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is about as blatant a case of unconstitutional search and seizure as it gets.

Anti-smut law dubs PCs, phones 'pornographic vendor machines', demands internet filters

Over to North Dakota, US, now and a new front in the war against cyber-smut has opened up.

A proposed law will force porno-blocking filters onto computers and smartphones sold in the conservative state – with a charge to remove the censorship.

Bill 1185 [PDF] will require laptops, cellphones and other internet-capable devices to be sold with a "digital blocking capability" that will bar the gadgets from displaying "obscene" material or performances, as well as websites that promote prostitution or human trafficking. It won't be applied retroactively to hardware already in people's hands, but will apply to all new devices sold after August 1 this year, if passed.

US Navy runs into snags with aircraft carrier's electric plane-slingshot

The US Navy is having difficulties with its latest aircraft carrier's Electromagnetic Aircraft Launching System (EMALS) – the same system which the UK mooted fitting to its new Queen Elizabeth-class carriers.

The US Department of Operational Test and Evaluation (DOTE) revealed yesterday, in its end-of-year report [PDF] for financial year 2016, that the EMALS fitted to the new nuclear-powered carrier USS Gerald R. Ford put "excessive airframe stress" on aircraft being launched.

This stress "will preclude the Navy from conducting normal operations of the F/A-18A-F and EA-18G from CVN 78", according to DOTES, which said the problem had first been noticed in 2014.

In addition, EMALS could not "readily" be electrically isolated for maintenance, which DOTE warned "will preclude some types of EMALS and AAG (Advanced Arresting Gear) maintenance during flight operations", decreasing their operational availability.
