    The Pirate Bay launched a mobile site on Thursday to make it easier to navigate the search engine for torrent files on mobile devices.Called The Mobile Bay, the mobile version of the site features bigger buttons and renders better on mobile devices than the desktop version of the site did before.The mobile version though offers fewer options than the regular version, apparently to save some space. The links to TV shows and Music that are shown prominently on the sites regular homepage are removed in the mobile version, while some other links are also cut from the already rather minimalist homepage.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  4. Invasion of the connected cars: Buick leads 30-plus GM cars into the 4G LTE futureFri, 25 Jul 2014 04:00:00 -0700
    They're coming: 30-plus GM cars with 4G LTE connectivity, debuting with the 2015 model year. They will join the 2015 Audi A3 in the pioneer generation of truly connected cars. Oh sure, some luxury cars have 3G already. But 4G gives cars the bandwidth to do much more. Most notably, the car becomes a Wi-Fi hotspot, and that's what I experienced when I took a brief road trip last week in the 2015 Buick LaCrosse. All but one of Buick's cars will have 4G LTE. (The Enclave will follow suit in the 2016 model year.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

    Worth the price of admissionThere was a time when "free-to-play" was a dirty term in the games industry. Actually, there are still terrible, exploitative free-to-play games on the marketmore every day, in fact.But occasionallyoccasionallywe get something...miraculous. We get a free-to-play game that doesn't try to con players out of money or make the design intentionally boring in order to make those purchasable unlocks more exciting.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
  6. Netgear Nighthawk X6 Wi-Fi router review: The best router for a crowded houseFri, 25 Jul 2014 03:00:00 -0700
    Is it ever the perfect time to buy a new product? I'd say no, because there's never a perfect time to review a new product, either. There's always something right around the corner that promises to be faster, better, cheaper. But you won't know if those claims are true until someone tests them. Case in point: I spent the first half of this week benchmarking Netgear's Nighthawk X6 Wi-Fi router (aka the Netgear R8000), so that I could publish this review today. Benchmarking takes time, as does analysis and writing. Asus decided to shipits all-new RT-AC87U Wi-Fi router on Wednesday, and my eval unit showed up today. Is it better, faster, cheaper than the Nighthawk X6? Right now, all I know is that it costs $20 less than Netgear's router despite its status as the first "Wave 2" 802.11ac router (that means it supports multi-user MIMO, which you can read all about in this story).To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  8. New guide aims to remove the drama of reporting software flawsThu, 24 Jul 2014 22:45:11 -0700
    Handling a software flaw can be messy, both for a security researcher who found it and for the company it affects. But a new set of guidelines aims to make that interaction less mysterious and confrontational.Large companies such as Facebook, Google and Yahoo have well defined responsible disclosure policies that lay out what is expected of researchers if they find a vulnerability and often the terms under which a reward will be paid.But many companies dont, which can lead to problems and confusion. Security researchers have occasionally been referred to law enforcement even when they have been up front about the issue with a company.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
  9. 'Canvas fingerprinting' tracking is sneaky but easy to haltThu, 24 Jul 2014 19:30:13 -0700
    A method for tracking users across the Internet called canvas fingerprinting is simple to stop, but average Internet users may not know how to do it.A research paper concluded that code used for canvas fingerprinting had been in use earlier this year on 5,000 or so popular websites, unknown to most. Most but not all the sites observed used a content-sharing widget from the company AddThis.The researchers, from KU Lueven in Belgium and Princeton University, described how companies are looking for new ways to track users in order to deliver targeted advertising and move away from cookies, which can be easily deleted or blocked.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
