    The iOS 11 operating system is installed on 76 percent of devices as of April 22, according to statistics Apple shared today on its App Store support page for developers. That's up 11 percentage points since January 18, when iOS 11 was installed on 65 percent of devices, and 24 percentage points since November 6, when iOS 11 was installed on 52 percent of devices. 19 percent of devices continue to use iOS 10, while 5 percent of devices use earlier versions of iOS, such as iOS 9. Many of these devices are likely older and unable to be updated to the newest version of iOS. iOS 11 adoption (...) -- iOS 11, Android

    Tom Warren, writing for The Verge: Nintendo’s Switch was hacked to run Linux in February, and now it’s clear that hackers could go further and run homebrew apps and games on the device. Eurogamer reports that two exploits have been detailed this week that allow hackers to exploit a hardware flaw in Nvidia’s Tegra X1 (that powers the Switch) and gain access to the Switch’s operating system. Nintendo cannot patch the hardware flaw without releasing a new version of the Switch, which means that at least 14 million devices are vulnerable. It’s a jailbreak that’s similar to a “tethered” iPhone (...)

    A note to the customer who just had a meltdown. To the groom without a perfect wedding, to the rental car customer who had to wait twenty minutes, and to the boss who's furious that the delivery wasn't as promised. We heard you. We, as in the people you were seeking to impact, and we as in the rest of us as well, the innocent bystanders. Actually, we heard you the first time. Ever since then, the only information that's being communicated is about you, not the people you're angry with. You're demonstrating your privilege (because you need to have plenty of resources in order to waste (...)

    It is spring. I wanted to lube the chain on my mountain bike. I prefer dry, wax-based lubricant as it sheds dirt and is more easy to maintain. Amazon had other ideas. I use White Lightning on the bike chain. I have not tried #Lube Life. While #LL's reviews are entertaining and generally positive, there is gratefully no mention of bike chains. -- #Lube Life.

    Apple has unveiled Daisy, a robot that can disassemble nine different types of iPhones, as part of their program to try and recover and recycle more materials that go into their devices. It can apparently handle 200 iPhones an hour. It's pretty mesmerizing to watch at work, I must say. As Eyewitness News writes: According to the Apple report, Daisy can recover 1,900 kilograms of aluminum (used in enclosures), 770kg of cobalt (a material crucial for making batteries), 710kg of copper (crucial in circuit boards) and 11kg of rare earth elements (which play a role in controlling magnets, and (...) -- Post, reduce reuse recycle

    Opioid overdoses now kill more Americans every year than guns, breast cancer, or car accidents. 20 million Americans suffer from addiction to alcohol, illicit, or prescription drugs. On the second anniversary of Prince’s death from fentanyl overdose last weekend, the President of the United States demonstrated a deep ignorance of this medical epidemic, calling someone he considers an alcoholic and addict a “drunk/drugged up loser.” Days later we learn that Dr. Ronny Jackson, the physician Trump nominated to lead the country’s largest healthcare system, the Veterans Administration, is known (...) -- Feature, addiction, opioid epidemic, trump's regressive drug policy

    In 1970, Chile elected Salvador Allende, a socialist, to office; he instituted sweeping reforms aimed at ending the corrupt rule of a small, monied, brutal elite; in 1973, the dictator Augusto Pinochet led a US-backed military coup that involved horrific torture and mass executions of political enemies.

    Begun, the deepfake wars have. As usage grows of FakeApp -- the software that makes it comparatively easy to create "deepfaked" face-swapped videos -- a couple of researchers have decided to fight fire with fire. So they trained a deep-learning neural net on tons of examples of deepfaked videos, and produced a model that's better than any previous automated technique at spotting hoaxery. (Their paper documenting the work is here.) This is good, obviously, though as you might imagine the very techniques they're using here could themselves be employed to produce better deepfakes. (...) -- Post, deepfakes

    Total versatility isn't something you'd typically find in a telescope. While magnification tech has come a long way, most telescopes are designed to either gaze upon the stars or view the landscapes beneath them. The Omegon Maksutov Telescope MightyMak 60 lets you do both, and thanks to its compact design, you can easily incorporate some sightseeing into your outdoor activities. It's available today for $109.99 in the Boing Boing Store. This compact Maksutov-style telescope lets you stargaze with brighter images and a larger field of view.

    Chances are you're not currently friends with Kim Jong Un on Facebook. And it's not likely to happen any time soon according to researchers at Recorded Future who have been looking at the internet usage patterns of North Korea's leaders. In July last year they found that the country's ruling elite were plugged into contemporary internet society, were technologically savvy, and had patterns of internet use that were very similar to users in the West. Repeating the analysis in December, however, they discovered substantive changes in how North Korea's leadership use the internet. In (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    Most hotel chains these days rely on some sort of electronic key card mechanism rather than more traditional locks. Researchers at F-Secure have found that hotels worldwide are using an electronic lock system with a flaw that could be exploited by an attacker to gain access to any room in the building. The attack involves using any ordinary electronic key to the target facility -- even one that's long expired, discarded, or used to access spaces such as a garage or closet. Using information on the key, the researchers are able to create a master key with privileges to open… [Continue (...) -- [Continue Reading]

    While the likes of Google and Apple are making some headway in the home voice assistant market, Amazon remains king. Part of the reason for its success (beyond simply being the first to market) is the retail giant offers a range of Alexa compatible devices to suit every need and budget.

    As a parent, I'm constantly listening to — and a bit wary of — how my kids are talking to Alexa. Or more precisely, how Amazon's digital assistant is talking to them. Ask for the wrong song or overhear the wrong news story, and suddenly my son or daughter might be exposed to something I might not be comfortable with them hearing. And even when the content isn't an issue, I sometimes wonder if Alexa's generally cold, utilitarian manner is giving them the wrong impression of how to answer questions.
