  2. Best Bluetooth speakersTue, 21 Feb 2017 15:19:00 -0800
    Last updated February 21, 2017 to include our review of the Vizio SmartCast Crave 360. There was a time when Bluetooth speakers were like jelly beans: They were cheap, they all looked the same, and they were invariably of dubious quality. Times have changed. Every major audio manufacturer has at least one model on the market today, and most have several. If you havent listened to a Bluetooth speaker lately, youre in for a very pleasant surprise. But the industrys progress doesnt mean that every Bluetooth speaker justifies its price tag, no matter how inexpensive it might be. Theres still plenty of dreck floating around.

  3. Redfin CTO says machine learning needs human helpTue, 21 Feb 2017 15:02:46 -0800
    Machine learning can automate the handling of huge troves of data to help companies make and save money. However, theyre not without pitfalls, as the real estate tech company Redfin learned.As Redfin began building its own machine-learning capabilities, it ran into a problem: Employees weren't using them. Bridget Frey, the firms CTO, said in an interview that there was a key reason for that: At first, Redfin didn't leave room in these systems for the real estate agents who were supposed to use them to make modifications.For example, a Listings Matchmaker feature generated a list of personalized recommendations for homebuyers, based on their interests. In its initial iteration, agents werent able to add recommendations they thought would be useful.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  7. Everything we think we know about the LG G6Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:58:00 -0800
    Update, 2/21/17: This post has been updated with a press release from LG about the the new cameras capabilities.With Mobile World Congress just around the corner, everyone is going to be on the lookout for the hottest new Android phone. This year that wont be Samsungs Galaxy S8, as the company has already announced that it wont be bringing its flagship handset to Barcelona this year, so the attention will be squarely on LG and its G6.Last years G5 made a splash for its quirky modular concept, but after disappointing sales (and an equally flat V20), LG will be looking to capitalize on Samsungs absence with a major release that gives people a reason to buy one of its handsets again. And based on what were hearing, the new G6 might do just that.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
  8. Java and Python FTP attacks can punch holes through firewallsTue, 21 Feb 2017 09:52:33 -0800
    The Java and Python runtimes fail to properly validate FTP URLs, which can potentially allow attackers to punch holes through firewalls to access local networks.On Saturday, security researcher Alexander Klink disclosed an interesting attack where exploiting an XXE (XML External Entity) vulnerability in a Java application can be used to send emails.XXE vulnerabilities can be exploited by tricking applications to parse specially crafted XML files that would force the XML parser to disclose sensitive information such as files, directory listings, or even information about processes running on the server.Klink showed that the same type of vulnerabilities can be used to trick the Java runtime to initiate FTP connections to remote servers by feeding it FTP URLs in the form of ftp://user:password@host:port/file.ext.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
  9. Intel supercharges Atom chips with 16 cores and pro-level featuresTue, 21 Feb 2017 09:38:00 -0800
    Intels Atom was mostly known as a low-end chip for mobile devices that underperformed. That may not be the case anymore.The latest Atom C3000 chips announced on Tuesday have up to 16 cores and are more sophisticated than ever. The chips are made for storage arrays, networking equipment, and internet of things devices.The new chips have features found mostly in server chips, including networking, virtualization, and error correction features.Networking and storage devices dont require a lot of horsepower, so the low-power Atom chips fit right in.

  10. Everything we think we know about Samsungs Galaxy Tab S3Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:01:00 -0800
    Its been a long time since theres been any news about a premium Android tablet. What was once a burgeoning product category has fallen flat as high-end phones become bigger and more powerful, and most new tablets that have been released over the past year are either targeted at budget buyers or children. But with the Galaxy S8 delayed until the spring, Samsung has all but confirmed it will be bringing a new high-end tablet to Mobile World Congress this year.And it looks to be a solid upgrade. The Galaxy Tab S2 has been on shelves since 2015, so Samsung has had a lot of time to think about what it wants from its flagship Android tablet. And while most people will probably still be talking about the Galaxy S8 teaser Samsung is expected to unveil at its MWC event, the Tab S3 isnt a throwaway release.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
