Untappd users log hundreds, often thousands of time-stamped location data points. These locations are neatly sorted in over 900 categories, which can be as diverse and specific as "botanic garden." "strip club," "gay bar," "west-Ukrainian restaurant," and "airport gate." As the result of this, the app allows anyone to trace the movements of other users between sensitive locations...

When I started my career 3G was the hot topic, and every investor kept asking 'what's the killer app for 3G?' It turned out that the killer app for having the internet in your pocket was, well, having the internet in your pocket. But with each of those, we knew what to build next, and with VR we don't. That tells me that VR has a place in the future. It just doesn’t tell me what kind of place.

The new iPhone SE is not intended for anyone who has already switched to an iPhone X or later. It’s not a phone for enthusiasts, unless your enthusiasm is for the smallest phone you can get, or if price is a significant concern.

Named "New IP," this proposal consists of a revamped version of the TCP/IP standards to accommodate new technologies, a "shutoff protocol" to cut off misbehaving parts of the internet, and a new "top-to-bottom" governance model that centralizes the internet and puts it into the hands of a few crucial node operators.

If we observe the customer-cones of the networks that have deployed RPKI, we see around 50% of the Internet is more protected against route leaks. That's great, but it's nothing like enough. Today, we are releasing isBGPSafeYet.com, a website to track deployments and filtering of invalid routes by the major networks.

There are some other good tips in there, too. As much as I hate to give this piece of malware the time of day, it appears to be the go-to service for schools trying to move their classes online, in an effort to salvage the year (west coast schools are unlikely to resume classroom instruction). A lot of teachers, like my sister, are getting a crash-course in technology. The kid's should probably be teaching them about online security!
Anyone who has had cable internet knows that it slows down every day - at 5pm when people get home from work! During the day, cable internet is wide open and likely the only time you will ever see the actual download speed that you are paying for. Now that everybody is sequestered at home, we are just seeing during the day, what we used to see at 5pm. For those with fiber connections (vs. cable), there is no change at all. The world is not ending, and neither is the Internet.
The Prisma Health VESper is a deceptively simple-looking three-way connector that expands use of one ventilator to treat up to four patients simultaneously.

Every iPad has transformed into a Surface in recent years, and as of this week, the iPad Pro and Surface Pro look even more alike.

We run the gamut of use cases, in our family. My parents both have iPad Pro's that are their primary computing devices, so of course the keyboards make a lot of sense. Their iPad's also never leave the house. My son and I have older iPad 3's that are simple browsing appliances and, in my case, my Jeep's primary navigation display. Both of our iPads spend as much time out of the house, as in. I think it would be a mistake for Apple to cede the simple use-case market to Amazon.
