Dozens of iOS apps fail to secure users' data, researcher says

From PC World: Dozens of iOS apps that are supposed to be encrypting their users' data don't do it properly, according to a security researcher.

Will Strafach, CEO of Sudo Security Group, said he found 76 iOS apps that are vulnerable to an attack that can intercept protected data.

The developers of the apps have accidentally misconfigured the networking-related code so it will accept an invalid Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificate, Strafach claimed in a Monday blog post.

TypeScript 2.2 plays nice with React Native JavaScript

From InfoWorld: Microsoft's TypeScript language is approaching its 2.2 release with an emphasis on support for React Native, Facebook's JavaScript framework for building native mobile apps.

The upgrade has moved to a release candidate status, which is commonly the last stage before general availability, and a road map for the language has version 2.2 arriving this month.

LG G6 phone officially bezel-less, Feb. 26 launch invite confirms

From CNET: LG's official invite for the unveiling of its LG G6 marquee phone later this month proves it. The electronics giant all but made it official earlier Monday when it announced that the G6 would get a 5.7-inch display with a 2,880x1,440 resolution and a 18:9 screen ratio called Full Vision. Now, LG's invitation for the February 26 unveiling reinforces the G6's all-screen, bezel-less reality in words, imagery and not-so-subtle clues.

5G starts with chips like IBM and Ericsson's silicon antenna

From PC World: A piece of silicon less than three inches across may speed up the arrival of 5G mobile networks in the next few years.

IBM Research and Ericsson have developed a compact antenna array that can aim high-frequency radio signals at mobile devices and shoot them farther than they otherwise could reach, the companies said. Silicon integration makes it thin and energy efficient so it’s more commercially viable.

AWS, Google, and Microsoft cement their cloud dominance

From InfoWorld: Not surprising, Amazon Web Services dominated another quarter -- and all of 2016. However, the cloud giant finally has real competition.

On the Microsoft earnings call, CEO Satya Nadella expressed the understatement of the century, acknowledging that AWS "is going to be a credible competitor." AWS is much more than that: It's redefining enterprise IT forever, with everyone else having to sprint to catch up to its torrid pace of innovation and price cuts. Interestingly, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud appear to be doing exactly that.

Nvidia's monster Quadro GP100 GPU brings big Pascal, HBM2, and NVLink to workstations

From PC World: Nvidia’s Quadro GP100 shares many features with the company’s most advanced Tesla P100 GPU, but it also brings the superfast NVLink to Windows PCs and workstations.

The Quadro GP100 isn’t targeted at gaming—it’s aimed more at virtual reality content creation, simulation, and engineering applications. The GPU is based on the Pascal architecture and is capable of supporting up to 5K displays at 60Hz.

​Judge: Google must give FBI emails stored overseas

From CNET: A US judge reportedly ruled Friday that Google has to comply with an FBI search warrant seeking customer emails stored on a foreign server.

That goes counter to a ruling last year in which a federal appeals court said Microsoft did not have to hand over data stored on its servers in Ireland.

Intel's Optane faces threat as Micron chases future QuantX tech

From PC World: Intel made waves at CES in January with Optane, a new class of memory and storage that will supercharge PCs and servers.

But don't forget that Optane has competition. Memory company Micron is coming out with memory and storage based on the same underlying 3D Xpoint technology.

Intel and Micron jointly developed the first-generation 3D Xpoint technology, which was announced in 2015. The fruitful partnership is now turning into a healthy rivalry.

Patriot Hellfire M.2 240GB Review (Page 1 of 11)

It has been commonly said in Western culture, there are two topics to always avoid if you want to have any friends: Religion and politics. I have to say it is rather unfortunate -- or fortunate, depending on how you look at it -- that both of these are my favorite topics. I will let you wonder if I have any friends left at all after all these years, but I think the reason why they end up being taboo topics is because both deeply relate to our personal worldviews, and as such, many tend to take things too personally and emotionally. Especially when it comes to the topic of afterlife, some people indeed get a little too excited in telling other people they are going to hell, while others slip the other extreme and avoid it altogether. I think there is a moderate and positive approach to discuss topics like these, so today, we will spend some time talking about hell. From a Christian perspective, the are actually very few places in the Bible that brings this up. But when we do talk about hell, you really cannot shy away from Revelation 20:10, "The devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever." Based on what this verse tells us, hell seems to be described as an eternally fiery place. You know, probably a lot more powerful than a mere Blaze, to Ignite something, or dealing with some Pyro. So when Patriot came up with their flagship Hellfire M.2 NVMe SSD, how aptly named is it in terms of its magnitude of power? We took one in to find out.
