Apple to fix FaceTime bug that allows eavesdropping

first_imgApple to fix FaceTime bug that allows eavesdropping (AP) – Apple has made the group chat function in FaceTime unavailable after users said there was a bug that could allow callers to activate another user’s microphone remotely.The bug was demonstrated through videos online and reported on this week by tech blogs. Reports say the bug in the video chat app could allow an iPhone user calling another iPhone through Group Facetime to hear the audio from the other handset – even if the receiver did not accept the call.“We’re aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week,” Apple said in a statement Tuesday.Its online support page noted there was a technical issue with the application and that Group Facetime “is temporarily unavailable.”The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, released a statement warning people about the bug and urging people to disable the app until Apple fixes the issue.Apple is due to report its latest quarterly earnings later Tuesday amid intense investor interest in the company’s financial health. Earlier this month, Apple said that demand for iPhones was waning and that its earnings for the final quarter of 2018 would be below expectations – a rare downgrade from the company.

Two of three victims of deadly Encinitas cliff collapse identified

first_img August 3, 2019 Posted: August 3, 2019 KUSI Newsroom ENCINITAS (KUSI) – Two of the three victims in Friday’s deadly cliff collapse in the Leucadia neighborhood of Encinitas were identified today as a mother and daughter.The women were identified as Julie Davis, 65, and Anne Clave, 35, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. The identity of the third victim, who died at the scene, has not been released pending notification of relatives.Clave, from Encinitas, died at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla on Friday. Davis died at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, also on Friday.The bluff failure happened shortly before 3 p.m. Friday just north of a lifeguard station, Encinitas fire and lifeguard officials said at a news conference Saturday morning.Officials reopened Grandview Surf Beach before noon Saturday with signs posted to the north and south of the cliff collapse asking the public to keep out of the “active area,” Lifeguard Capt. Larry Giles said.City officials recommended that “given the apparent natural bluff instability, beachgoers should avoid areas near or under the bluffs and keep a recommended safe distance of 25 to 40 feet.”Four search dogs went through the site of the collapse late Friday and officials determined that no more people had been found, Encinitas Fire Deputy Chief Robert Ford said.Two people walked away uninjured after the collapse, Giles said.A lifeguard was in the tower next to the site of the cliff collapse and immediately began to rescue victims. Some good Samaritans helped the lifeguard in the rescue effort, Giles said. The lifeguard tower has since been moved away from the part of the cliff that collapsed.Experts in geology will continue assessing the coastline for any potential collapse threats. Geotech soil engineers said Friday’s failure was an isolated incident, Giles said, and unrelated to the recent earthquakes in Southern California. The failure isn’t affecting structures at the top of the cliffs, he said.“Our coastline is a beautiful area, but the coastline is eroding,” Giles said.

Cant make it to Luftgekuhlt Lets talk about our favorite Porsche race

first_imgIt’s that time of year again where Porsche fanatics from all over the world gather in Southern California to celebrate Dr. Porsche’s magnificent machines. Luftgekuhlt is mostly a big party for 911 and 356 lovers, but all kinds of race cars show up, too.My favorite Porsche racing car is one that often gets forgotten when people start tossing around numbers like 917 and 935. It’s the 962 race cars of the 1980s and 1990s. These long, wide and low machines remained dominant in sports car racing much longer than just about anything else, and Porsche would have a lot fewer Le Mans wins without it.The 962 had kind of a weird childhood. It was designed at the last minute as a response to a rule change by the American racing organization IMSA. Explicitly, this change stated that a driver’s feet had to be located behind the car’s front axles and that made Porsche’s current world-beating sports prototype, the 956, ineligible. Car Culture 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Porsche The 956 was introduced in 1982 as a replacement for Porsche’s 936 open-top race car. It was a savagely fast automobile, setting a lap record for the Nurburgring Nordschleife that stood from 1984 until 2018. It was also the first car to use Porsche’s PDK gearbox. The overall package of the 956 was incredibly successful, winning Le Mans outright four years in a row.That shows why Porsche, when updating the chassis to the 962 didn’t change an awful lot and why the two cars are pretty tough to tell apart when sitting next to one another. The Porsche 962 ran in several engine configurations during its long career, but it was always powered by a turbocharged flat-six engine and produced upward of 700 horsepower in some trims.The 962 models that ran in IMSA have a special place in my heart, as they are purely air-cooled and feature a massive scoop on the rear deck. Other versions, including the Le Mans-winning 962C, either featured water-cooled cylinder heads or were water-cooled entirely.So, if you’re unable to make it to Universal Studios’ backlot for Luftgekuhlt 6 today, kick back and enjoy some videos of one of the most dominant racecars the world has ever seen.

PM Hasina blasts US for issuing red alert

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina in her introductory speech at Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) meeting at Ganabhaban on Friday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday sharply criticised the USA for issuing an alert on Bangladesh without citing any reason or giving any explanation, reports UNB. “I saw the USA issued a red alert. They didn’t inform us why they issued the alert and gave no explanation either,” she said in her introductory speech at Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) meeting at Ganobhaban. Sheikh Hasina said she has already asked the authorities concerned to look into the matter and find out why the US issued the alert or whether they have any information. “If they’ve any information about any incident that can happen in the coming days, then it’s their responsibility to inform us,” the prime minister said. “They could inform our intelligence agencies so that we could take steps.” Hasina said terrorism is a problem for the whole world. “Bangladesh contained terrorism and militancy successfully. After one incident we’re very much alert and our intelligence agencies are working round the clock. If they (the US) have any information, they should inform the appropriate authority,” she said. The prime minister said Bangladesh is in the top five growth attaining countries and it is natural that those who did not want the country’s independence will not want to see the country advancing smoothly socioeconomically. “They hatched conspiracies in the past, but we’re advancing and we’ll be advancing. Everyone has to work so that our march towards success continues,” she said. The US embassy on Wednesday issued a fresh alert for its citizens living in Bangladesh. “In light of calls for revenge in the wake of the 15 March terrorist attack against on mosques in New Zealand, we encourage US citizens to exercise heightened awareness of the ongoing threat posed by transnational terrorist organisations such as ISIS and al-Qa’ida,” it said in a statement.Terrorist groups, their associates, and those inspired by such organisations remain intent on attacking US and western citizens around the world, including in Bangladesh, it mentioned.It also requested its citizens to review their personal security plans as well to be aware of their surroundings.”Stay alert in locations frequented by Westerners and monitor local media for updates,” it added.last_img read more

Swiss Group Wants to Banish PowerPoint

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now While most people might not love using Microsoft’s PowerPoint to create presentations, at least one person is taking his distaste for the software to a global level.Matthias Poehm, a former software engineer-turned-public speaking trainer has started — yes — the Anti-PowerPoint Party (APPP) earlier this month. Headquartered in Bonstetten, Switzerland, the APPP calls itself an “international movement” that intends to “decrease the number of boring presentations worldwide.” The goal is to make it so that people who don’t want to use PowerPoint “will not have to justify themselves in the future,” it says.Right. Here’s the real kicker: The APPP says people who attend “futile” PowerPoint presentations result in almost $500 billion in hourly wage losses for employers worldwide. Instead, APPP says people should consider using flip charts, which it claims are 95 percent more effective than using presentation software. Here’s a video of Poehm explaining his reasoning: min read While an APPP representative didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment, the statistics above seem to originate from Poehm’s book, “The PowerPoint Fallacy.” Coincidentally, Poehm is offering the book at a 37 percent discount to APPP members.If this doesn’t seem wacky enough, the group says it also wants to participate in the Swiss national elections in October and become the country’s fourth-largest political party.In the meantime, for those of us who either like using presentation software or just don’t want to use a flip chart, business strategist, entrepreneur and venture capitalist Guy Kawasaki — who’s seen his fair share of PowerPoint pitches over the years — suggests abiding by a “10/20/30” rule when putting them together. Here are his tips:Keep it short. It shouldn’t take you more than 10 PowerPoint slides to explain your project or business, Kawasaki says. “A normal human being cannot comprehend more than 10 concepts in a meeting,” he says.Don’t be long-winded. You should be able to present your 10 slides in no more than 20 minutes. “In a perfect business world, you would give your pitch in 20 minutes and then have 40 minutes remaining for discussion,” Kawasaki says.Make it readable. Kawasaki suggests using a font no smaller than 30 points and to use only the content that most convincingly communicates your points. “I guarantee it will make your presentations better because it will require you to find the most salient points and then know how to explain each of them well,” he says.How have you spiced up your presentations?
