  • Sony continues to trim the fat, dumps Square-Enix stock

    Engadget - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:32 PM EDT

    The PlayStation 4 may be leading home console sales, but that doesn't mean Sony's bank account is in the black. The company has made a minor habit of garnishing its quarterly earnings reports with notable losses, and it's been selling off assets (including its own headquarters) to help balance its budget. Its latest liquidation is the company's 8.25 percent stake in Square-Enix, the outfit behind jRPG hits like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest.

  • American Funds urges password change to counter 'Heartbleed' bug

    Reuters - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:27 PM EDT

    By Jim Finkle and Ross Kerber BOSTON (Reuters) - American Funds, the No. 3 U.S. mutual fund family, advised some customers to change user names and passwords on Wednesday as the number of companies and people affected by the notorious "Heartbleed" bug grows. American Funds also advised customers who logged into Americanfunds.com from Dec. 12, 2013 to April 14 to create new security questions and delete their browsing history. Heartbleed refers to a security bug in software known as OpenSSL used in about two-thirds of all websites and many other technology products. Dan Guido, chief executive of cybersecurity startup Trail of Bits, said more warnings are likely because no company will want to be remiss in trying to protect customers.

  • Banksy’s latest work ‘Mobile Lovers’ has been torn down – but for a good cause

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:22 PM EDT

    One of famed graffiti artist Banksy’s most recent works is a commentary on how distracted we all are by constant connectivity. Dubbed “Mobile Lovers,” the piece shows a man and a woman looking past each other’s shoulders at their smartphones while embracing. It’s a terrific work of art, as all of Banksy’s pieces are, but it was recently torn down by a local man, as BBC reported. Just hours after Banksy finished the piece, Dennis Stinchcombe unscrewed the wooden plank that served as Banksy’s canvas and pried it off of the wall with a crowbar. As BBC learned, however, he had good intentions. Stinchcombe, who is the manager of the Broad Plain Boys Club adjacent to when Banksy’s latest work was created, plans to More »Banksy’s latest work ‘Mobile Lovers’ has been torn down – but for a good cause

    If you can't make it camping this year, perhaps Sir David Attenborough's upcoming wildlife TV project in VR will suffice. And for immersion in something with fewer dimensional dynamics, maybe Sony's lineup of 4K TVs will fit the bill. Yes, it's been a relatively slow week for HD, but Richard and Ben need a breather since Chromecast, Aereo and so many others keep dropping news bombs on a regular basis.

  • Canadian charged in 'Heartbleed' attack on tax agency

    Reuters - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:05 PM EDT

    Canadian police have arrested a 19-year-old man and charged him in connection with exploiting the "Heartbleed" bug to steal taxpayer data from a government website, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said on Wednesday. In what appeared to be the first report of an attack using a flaw in software known as OpenSSL, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) said this week that about 900 social insurance numbers and possibly other data had been compromised as a result of an attack on its site. The suspect, Stephen Solis-Reyes, was arrested at his home in London, Ontario on Wednesday and faces criminal charges of unauthorized use of computer and mischief in relation to data.

  • Google whiffs on Q1 2014 earnings with EPS of $6.27

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:05 PM EDT

    This past quarter hasn’t been the most eventful one in Google’s history but analysts were still expecting it to be a profitable one with a consensus earnings estimate of $6.40 per share on about $15.5 billion in revenue. The company on Wednesday missed those expectations by posting a first-quarter profit of $6.27 per share on $15.4 billion in sales.  Aside from the big EPS and revenue figures, Google also saw its cost-per-click — a key metric used to determine how much money Google can charge for advertisements — decline by 9% year-over-year. However, Google also points out that its cost-per-click figures have held steady from Q4 2013 and that the year-over-year decline from Q1 2013 to Q1 2014 wasn’t as steep as the year-over-year More »Google whiffs on Q1 2014 earnings with EPS of $6.27

  • Google develops computer vision accurate enough to solve its own CAPTCHAs

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:05 PM EDT

    Google has cracked the CAPTCHA. In a paper published this week, Google researchers say that they've developed an algorithm that can accurately solve Google's own CAPTCHA puzzles — those obfuscated jumbles of letters and numbers you type in on websites to prove that you're human — with 99.8 percent accuracy, obviously posing something of a problem to the puzzle's intended purpose of weeding out robots. The new system was developed to help Google automatically analyze hard-to-read signs and house numbers photographed by its Street View cameras, allowing it to accurately match images with locations on a map. Google is, of course, specially suited to developing such advanced automated text analysis because of its extensive work with Street View and reCAPTCHA, its own CAPTCHA service.

  • HTC One (M8) shipments seen reaching 3-5 million in Q2

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 3:45 PM EDT

    Shipments of HTC’s new flagship One (M8) smartphone are expected to fall between 3 million and 5 million units in the second quarter this year. The phone launched in late March, so Q2 will represent the handset’s first full quarter of sales. This HTC One (M8) sales figure comes from a recent Digitimes report, and it cites the website’s typical unnamed industry sources. Channel sales of between 3 million and 5 million units might not seem terribly impressive compared to the numbers put up by HTC’s top rivals. Samsung, for example, shipped 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones in just one month last year. Meanwhile, Apple sold 9 million iPhones in one weekend in 2013. But as HTC America president Jason Mackenzie More »HTC One (M8) shipments seen reaching 3-5 million in Q2

  • LG’s so-called ‘Galaxy S5 killer’ could launch in July

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 3:31 PM EDT

    Releasing a new flagship smartphone has become tricky because you don’t want to release it too closely to new Samsung flagships that launch in the spring or new iPhones that launch in the fall. With this in mind, it looks like LG will be releasing its latest flagship device in July, according to a new report from ZDNet Korea. “An August launch seems too late considering the current market situation,” an unnamed LG executive tells ZDNet Korea. “We’ve completed many features that our competitors don’t have very quickly. (The G3) will go on sale on more carriers than any other LG Electronics’ smartphones.” The G3 looks like it could be one of the big sleeper Android phones released this year.
