    Two studies are warning of thousands of vulnerabilities found in pacemakers, insulin pumps and other medical devices. "One study solely on pacemakers found more than 8,000 known vulnerabilities in code inside the cardiac devices," reports BBC. "The other study of the broader device market found only 17% of manufacturers had taken steps to secure gadgets." From the report: The report on pacemakers looked at a range of implantable devices from four manufacturers as well as the "ecosystem" of other equipment used to monitor and manage them. Researcher Billy Rios and Dr Jonathan Butts from security company Whitescope said their study showed the "serious challenges" pacemaker manufacturers faced in trying to keep devices patched and free from bugs that attackers could exploit. They found that few of the manufacturers encrypted or otherwise protected data on a device or when it was being transferred to monitoring systems. Also, none was protected with the most basic login name and password s...

    According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on a processor devoted specifically to AI-related tasks. "The chip, known internally as the Apple Neural Engine, would improve the way the company's devices handle tasks that would otherwise require human intelligence -- such as facial recognition and speech recognition," reports Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the matter. From the report: Engineers at Apple are racing to catch their peers at Amazon.com Inc. and Alphabet Inc. in the booming field of artificial intelligence. While Siri gave Apple an early advantage in voice-recognition, competitors have since been more aggressive in deploying AI across their product lines, including Amazon's Echo and Google's Home digital assistants. An AI-enabled processor would help Cupertino, California-based Apple integrate more advanced capabilities into devices, particularly cars that drive themselves and gadgets that run augmented reality, the technology that superimposes graphics and other inform...

    Earlier this year, Chipotle announced that the their payment processing system was hacked. Today, the company has released more information about the hack, identifying the malware that was responsible and releasing a new tool to help customers check whether the restaurant they visited was involved. The company did not say how many restaurants were affected, but it did tell The Verge that "most" locations nationwide may have been involved. The Verge reports: "The malware searched for track data (which sometimes has cardholder name in addition to card number, expiration date, and internal verification code) read from the magnetic stripe of a payment card as it was being routed through the POS device," Chipotle said in a statement. "There is no indication that other customer information was affected." We browsed through the tool and found that every state Chipotle operates in had restaurants that were breached, including most major cities. The restaurants were vulnerable in various time f...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Comcast's customer satisfaction score for subscription TV service fell 6 percent in a new survey, putting the company near the bottom of rankings published by the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Comcast's score fell from 62 to 58 on ACSI's 100-point scale, a drop of more than 6 percent between 2016 and 2017. The ACSI's 2017 report on telecommunications released this week attributed the decrease to "price hikes for Xfinity (Comcast) subscriptions." Satisfaction with pay-TV providers dropped industry-wide, tying the segment with Internet service (a product offered by the same companies) for last place in the ACSI's rankings. The ACSI summarized the trend as follows: "Customer satisfaction with subscription television service slips 1.5 percent to 64, tied with Internet service providers for last place among 43 industries tracked by the ACSI. Many of the same large companies offer service for Internet, television, and voic...

    Napster co-founder Sean Parker has been working on his new service called Screening Room, which when becomes reality, could allow people to watch the latest Hollywood blockbusters in their living room as soon as they premiere at the box office. This week we get a glimpse at the kind of technologies Parker is using to ensure that the movies don't get distributed easily. From a report: Over the past several weeks, Screening Room Media, Inc. has submitted no less than eight patent applications related to its plans, all with some sort of anti-piracy angle. For example, a patent titled "Presenting Sonic Signals to Prevent Digital Content Misuse" describes a technology where acoustic signals are regularly sent to mobile devices, to confirm that the user is near the set-top box and is authorized to play the content. Similarly, the "Monitoring Nearby Mobile Computing Devices to Prevent Digital Content Misuse" patent, describes a system that detects the number of mobile devices near the client-...

    NASA published the following media advisory moments ago: NASA will make an announcement about the agency's first mission to fly directly into our sun's atmosphere during an event at 11 a.m. EDT Wednesday, May 31, from the University of Chicago's William Eckhardt Research Center Auditorium. The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website. The mission, Solar Probe Plus, is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2018. Placed in orbit within four million miles of the sun's surface, and facing heat and radiation unlike any spacecraft in history, the spacecraft will explore the sun's outer atmosphere and make critical observations that will answer decades-old questions about the physics of how stars work. The resulting data will improve forecasts of major space weather events that impact life on Earth, as well as satellites and astronauts in space. ...

    An anonymous reader shares an article: The music-streaming service Tidal is saying goodbye to yet another CEO. Jefffrey Toig, who became the company's CEO in December 2015, is leaving the company. This would make him the third CEO leaving Tidal after two years, following the departure of Andy Chen and Peter Tonstad. In a statement to CNET, Tidal said that it will announce a new CEO in the coming weeks. The Jay-Z-owned music service has relied heavily on star power and album exclusives, but its bet doesn't seem to be making any splashes. On top of that, the company was accused in January of lying about its 3-million subscriber-base. They were accused of creating fake accounts. ...

    An anonymous reader writes: Millennials aren't buying homes in the same numbers as previous and older generations, but it's not because they don't want to. The vast majority of millennials do indeed aim to buy someday, or would even like to now if they could. Unfortunately, the numbers don't look good. New data from Apartment List shows that, although 80 percent of millennials would like to purchase real estate, very few are in a good position to buy, largely because they have nothing saved. According to the report, '68 percent of millennials said they have saved less than $1,000 for a down payment. Almost half, or 44 percent, of millennials said they have not saved anything for a down payment.' ...

    The number of workers in the so-called gig economy will grow substantially in the coming years, according to a study by Intuit and Emergent Research. By 2021, the study finds, 9.2 million people are going to be working the frontline jobs at companies like Uber and Lyft. That number is projected to be 4.8 million this year. From a report: The rise in on-demand workers has been fueled largely by startups like Uber, TaskRabbit and Airbnb. It has also helped companies like Intuit, which makes tax software QuickBooks and TurboTax. The company's stock surged to an all-time high yesterday thanks to the gig economy. For context, there are currently more gig workers than people employed in the entire information sector (which includes publishing, telecommunication and data processing jobs) and IT services combined, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    RadioShack, an almost 100-year-old American chain of wireless and electronics stores, had a hell of ride at retail. The cradle of building your own electronics at home, and an early participant in the PC revolution, is finally facing the end after a long, slow death at the hands of consumer disinterest, a dysfunctional marriage with Sprint. From a report: Tons of electronics stores have shuttered over the past decade, but few are as tragic as RadioShack, which filed for bankruptcy in 2015, appeared to be rescued by Sprint in agreement to co-share the stores, then got kicked to the curb and had to file for a second bankruptcy this past March. The new agreement means hundreds of RadioShack shops will officially close down and be replaced by Sprint stores, fizzling out dreams of the Maker movement. So while this is an end to another chapter of our American electronics retail culture, we do have to wonder: how are the folks at RadioShack doing? They have been selling the leftover stocks of...

    Tycho: Wizards of the Coast is doing an event called Stream of Annihilation to kick off the new stuff they’ve got going, some of which was teased in the Acquisitions Incorporated Live game from PAX East.  They’re essentially operating a kind of online convention you can attend June 2nd and 3rd, with twelve hours of programming per day.  They’ve pulled out all the stops on the talent side, it’s a little ridiculous: The HighRollers, Misscliks, and more. I don’t 100% know how it happened, but Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team - the show we do…...

    Tycho: You might like the podcast for this one when it comes out; the true origin of the strip is divergent from its terrifying new form. We are going to be a doing a new show on the Twitch stream.  The scam I have historically tried to pull in my life as a person who makes and does things is to try and work it so someone pays me to do something I would have made or done for free.  I probably shouldn’t say that outloud, but since the contract is already signed I think we’re in the clear. Penny Arcade Plays: Warmachine is a four player tournament we’ll be streaming…...

    New Comic: Finale

    Tycho: People seem to like what we’re doing with the PAX shows.  We have a lot of very unique experience bottled up here at Penny Arcade, earned over almost twenty years of planning and executing cons, and as our partner ReedPOP founds or finds cool conventions around the globe they’ve asked us to share some of that hard-won knowledge with local teams.  Wherever we can be a help to these shows, we will - and honestly, sometimes that’s going to mean standing back and trusting that team’s local approach.  Check out the launch site for more info about the first…...

    Gabe: Making a tabletop game is a lot of work you guys. Thankfully I am surrounded by some ridiculously talented folks at Lone Shark and Penny Arcade. Kiko has been working on finalizing the layout for our cards and they are looking really cool. For a long time our cards have gotten the job done, but now it’s time to turn this stuff: Into something I’m proud to put in a box. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the work Kiko has been doing: While Kiko hammers out the graphic design I still have lots to illustrate. Specifically I am working on our Judges right now. If you’ve…...

    Tycho: I was very, very late to the game on Destiny.  As someone whose primary axis of engagement with Bungie was via their lore, please act surprised, Destiny as a launch experience was missing the nanoscale furrows that would give me entre.  Or, it sort of was. Things definitely happen in the game, but they occur in a kind of dream logic which might have been caused by any number of things.  As the anchor for a “ten year game,” you don’t really want to paint yourself into a corner too early.  There was also significant creative turmoil at the time that caused…...

    New Comic: Cape Town

    Tycho: I haven’t had a chance to play The Surge yet, so I don’t 100% know what’s going on with it.  Gabriel doesn’t seem to like it, so I assume that means it’s great. Being like Dark Souls without being Dark Souls is, to my mind, an argument for whatever it is.  Bloodborne, made by the same fucking crew, proves it better than anybody: there’s a hard, shiny marble at the center of this loop and narrative experience that is a basecamp for other expressions of it.  Nioh proves out some concepts related to ARPG loot grinds and technical gameplay that I…...

    Gabe: I picked up The Surge not really knowing what to expect. I heard it had some cool combat mechanics and figured it was worth a try. It only took a few minutes of playing to realize it was Bloodborne but you can chop off body parts. Honestly that probably would have been enough for me if it didn’t look so stupid. Bloodborne is a game that oozes character and style and I think that’s why I was able to get so into it. On the other hand, The Surge reminds me of and 80’s cartoon. I am serious! Here’s the main guy from The Surge. I think his name is Bob Surge. And here are the…...

    WinGameStore, a digital retailer that sells Windows games (shocking), is running two big sales events this weekend from two major angles. In corner one, we have a flurry of Uplay titles, everything from Assassin's Creed and Far Cry to Heroes of Might and Magic. Most titles are priced reasonably, though we didn't spot too many historic low prices. The only titles at their lowest recorded price are the Deluxe Editions of select titles. Noteworthy though is Might and Magic Heroes VI Complete for only $16, which is a great price for fans of the series. For the other major sale, WinGameStore has 20 Star Wars titles on tap for up to 76% off. In fact, all titles except Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith are at 76% off. Funny enough, Mysteries of the Sith at $1.99 is also at the lowest price ever. Our personal pick from the scores of games below include Knights of the Old Republic I and II, Republic ...

    As an easy-on-the-eyes golf game for Nintendo Switch, Golf Story looks promising. But there's more to it than that, and I think that's how it'll be able to win over folks who aren't typically into sports games -- say, for example, people who were big into Mario Golf for Game Boy Color. Golf Story should scratch a very specific itch with everything surrounding the actual golfing. Or, as Ray said in our Slack, "I'm unironically gonna buy a Switch for a fucking golf game now aren't I." Tee up anywhere! You’ll be surprised by how many problems can be solved by hitting a golf ball at them. Explore 8 unique environments, each with their own courses, towns, people and secrets. Play through a dramatic story with a diverse cast of characters. Upgrade your golfer by completing challenges, solving puzzles and buying new equipment. Roun...

    A now-removed tweet from PlayStation Turkey suggests that co-op zombie shooter Killing Floor 2 and inconsistently hella good teenage adventure Life is Strange are on the docket for PlayStation Plus. Ordinarily, Killing Floor 2 would come as a surprise, but this will be E3 month after all. Even if this rumor doesn't pan out worldwide, Life is Strange totally seems like the kind of game to end up on PlayStation Plus, particularly in light of word that DONTNOD is working on a follow-up.

    An inquisitive player has stumbled across some frame-rate weirdness in the just-released PC version of Vanquish, and if the game doesn't feel quite the way you remember it, this issue could be the culprit. NeoGAF user .:Wesker:. brought comparison gifs that better demonstrate the problem but, in short, you'll take more damage when running Vanquish at higher frame rates. We've seen similar oddities crop up in PC ports of titles like Dark Souls II, which for the longest time tied weapon durability to frame rate, forcing certain players to repair their gear far more frequently than ever intended. As explained by .:Wesker:., "If you lock th...

    With all the buzz surrounding Call of Duty's return to World War II, now seems like a great time to jump back into the past and relive some of the best FPS games from last generation. One of the more overlooked titles, Rising Storm, was originally released as a standalone expansion to Red Orchestra 2 and it focused on the Pacific front, something that the new Call of Duty is completely overlooking. If you're keen to see a different side of "The World's Greatest Generation," you can now do so for free thanks to Humble Bundle. Over on the Humble Storm, Rising Storm is being given out gratis for the next 20 or so hours (at time of writing). Seeing as how the game also includes access to Red Orchestra 2's multiplayer, you could potentially find your next favorite game to hold you over until Call of Duty. If nothing else, you can add this to your backlog and then wonder, years down the line, when you actually go...

    Sometime this fall, UFO Interactive Games will be bringing Raiden V to PS4 and PC (via Steam) as Raiden V: Director's Cut. In an effort to entice fans to double dip (or sweeten the deal for people who don't own an Xbox One), Director's Cut will include a bunch of new features that probably won't amount to much, but definitely make the game sound bigger and better. For starters, cooperative play is now included. How that wasn't included in the original Raiden V is beyond me. That seems like a very basic thing that every shmup has, but I guess that is now a "new" feature. It looks like we're also getting full narration for the storyline, full 1080p support, three new ships, a "Cheer" attack (something to do with secondary weapons) and something called the "Tri View" HUD, which lets you look at your ship, command center and real-time status updates all at once. ...

You may also find it more convenient to view the pictures on Robertson's site. Read more......

    It’s been nearly 14 years since audiences were first treated to Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow. At the time, Roger Ebert said that Depp’s “performance is original in its every atom. There has never been a pirate, or for that matter a human being, like this in any other movie.” Four films later, and this much is still true. Depp’s performance as Sparrow is unique in the catalog of all things movie and he still brings some of what made this character so unique and essential to the franchise to the table, err, deck. Fourteen years is plenty of time for an entirely new audience to have been born, and to those uninitiated to the Pirates franchise, they may find Depp’s performance, the corresponding over-the-top action sequences, and now iconic scoring to be nearly as enjoyable as audie...

With that, let's get to the eight newest games with title screens that are abundantly awesome."...

    Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, by no means a flawless entry in the nearly three decade-old franchise, may well be the closest the series has gotten to somehow finding a happy medium between past legacy and contemporary appeal.

    It was great speaking with Bobby Johnson, CTO and Founder of Interana about the findings from its inaugural State of Data Insights Report. Interana surveyed nearly 200 respondents from a variety of companies and roles — ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies, C-level executives, and VPs to individual contributors — to assess how today’s businesses access, use, and analyze data. Results indicate that the majority of respondents find shortcomings in their current analytics solutions, with nearly 70% of organizations encountering behavioral questions on a weekly to monthly basis that they could not answer using their current tools. The findings from the study are consistent with what I have heard interviewing executives for DZone's Big Data Research Guides....

    A few days back, I discovered a new Docker feature — multi-stage builds. The multi-stage build feature helps you create thin Docker images by making it possible to divide the image building process into multiple stages. Artifacts produced in one stage can be reused by another stage. This is very beneficial for languages like Java as multiple steps are required to build the Docker image. The main advantage of the multi-stage build feature is that it can help you create smaller size images. This feature is not yet available in stable versions of Docker. It will become available in Docker 17.05. To use this feature, you have to use the edge version of Docker CE. To build a Docker image for a Java application, you first need to build the Java project. Java build process needs a JDK and a build tool like Maven, Gradle, or Ant. Once a Java binary artifact is produced, you can package the binary in a Docker image. For running a...

    A few years ago, Red Hat introduced OpenShift, which provides a Platform as a Service (PaaS). There are a number of flavors of OpenShift from Origin, an open-source community project, to a fully managed online service. OpenShift allows developers to focus on incremental application changes while not having to administer the infrastructure. OpenShift provides a continuous integration framework where it slurps your GitHub repo into a docker container with the proper language engine and lets Kubernetes orchestrate the deployment of the container pods to various host nodes. That being said, NuoDB is not an application that can be deployed via the OpenShift web console but can be deployed as part of the PaaS. In this blog, I’ll walk you through standing up your own OpenShift Origin cluster on Centos and pull...

It was designed to be used in distributed environments by providing flexibility and scalability. Now, ElasticSearch is the most popular enterprise search engine followed by Apache Solr, also based on Lucene....

    ASP.NET Core 2 comes with Razor Pages that allow developers to build simple web applications with less overhead compared to MVC. The emphasis is on the word “simple” as Razor Pages doesn’t come with patterns suitable for bigger and more complex applications. For this, we have MVC that is flexible enough to build applications that will grow over years. This blog post uses a simple shoutbox application to illustrate how to build applications using Razor Pages.

    WannaCry Ransomware-the global cyber-attack has been in the limelight since 12th May 2017. This virus has overblown organizations in 150 countries. Though the attack was decelerated after a gap of 24 hours of devastation, its effect has not completely vanished. Before we dive into the details of the attack, let’s understand what ransomware and WannaCry is. Ransomware Basics Yes, it is. RANSOMWARE means asking ransom in the form of Bitcoin (cryptocurrency) for accessing your own data in your system. Ransomware is a kind of spiteful virus which attacks a computer or a system, encrypts its data, and blocks access to it. Hackers demand a ransom to give you back your access to the encrypted data....

    We’ve all seen the course offerings out there: “Learn jQuery in Ten Days”; “40 Hours to SQL Proficiency”; “Web Dev Bootcamp — From Beginner to Expert”; and on and on.

So, what is the real value of these crash courses in development and, more importantly, do they actually make you more hirable and grow your earning potential?

    This is a modification of a previously asked question (In javascript, how do I extract the month from date string "yyyy-mm-dd" or timeStamp?), which was solved nicely by @mhodges. Because of the nature of the modification, I thought it would be appropriate to just create a new question. I have a database with certain logged events as json objects, each one with it's own JS millisecond timestamp and also a date string in the format "yyyy-mm-dd", as well as a minutes entry. I'd like to use the timestamp as input into an algorithm which will count how many logs were entered in a given month and year. I would also like the algorithm to sum the cumulative number of minutes were logged in a given month and year. For example, log1: { Date:"2017-05-24", TimeStamp:1495612800, Minu...

    What is the fastest way to combine 100 CSV files with headers into one? File 1.csv: a,b 1,2 File 2.csv: a,b 3,4 Final out.csv: a,b 1,2 3,4 A general assumption is that all files can easily fit in memory. The Files are around 200 MBytes.

    Forgive me if the verbiage isn't correct. So I'm working with some JSON data and I want to try and print some columnized output so that two or three of the objects will be printed over each pass. Right now, this would just iterate over one as expected. data = json.loads(subprocess.check_output(["some_command_here"])) for obj in data: print obj['key_a'] Output value_a value_b value_c value_d value_e What I'm trying to achieve is something like: value_a value_b value_c value_d value_e Where each group of objects is printed on one row. So first iteration handles value_a, value_b, and value_c, the next one handles value_d, value_e, and value_f is applicable, etc. How does iteration change in this case? The other thing if it warrants consideration is the number of objects in data is dynamic. Could be 1, could be 5, could be 20+....

    There’s some interesting technology bundled into this energy harvesting wristwatch. While energy harvesting timepieces (called automatic watches) have been around for nearly 240 years, [bobricius] has used parts and methods that are more easily transferable to other projects. Unlike early mechanical systems, this design uses the versatile BPW34 PIN photodiode (PDF warning). PIN photodiodes differ from ordinary PN diodes in that there’s a layer of undoped ‘intrinsic’ silicon separating the P and N doped layers. This reduces the utility of the diode as a rectifier, while allowing for higher quantum efficiency and switching speed. They are typically used in the …read more...

    For some of you the title might seem familiar, as [Patrick Van Oosterwijck] LiFePO4wered/Pi project is a quite successful Hackaday.io project. Now he’s designing from scratch the plus version to fill in some gaps and solve some of the challenges that affected the initial project. So what exactly is LiFePO4wered/Pi+ and what can it do? In a nutshell, it’s a smart UPS for the Raspberry Pi. The standard version allows a Model A+ and Pi Zero to run on battery for over 2 hours, and the B+, B2 and B3 to run for at least an hour (it maybe less, …read more...

    If you are a watcher of the world of drones, or multirotors, you may have a fixed idea of what one of these aircraft looks like in your mind. There will be a central pod containing batteries and avionics, with a set of arms radiating from it, each of which will have a motor and a propeller on its end. You are almost certainly picturing a four-rotor design, such as the extremely popular DJI Phantom series of craft. Of course, four-rotor designs are just one of many possible configurations of a multirotor. You will commonly see octocopters, but sometimes we’ve …read more...

    The original Nintendo Entertainment System is affectionately called “the toaster” due to the way the cartridge is inserted. [MrBananaHump] decided to take things a bit literally and installed a NES inside an actual toaster. This isn’t [MrBananaHump’s] design, the Nintoaster comes to us from [vomitsaw], who also built the SuperNintoaster. Since [vomitsaw] was kind enough to document his original build, [MrBananaHump] was able to build upon it. The target toaster for this build was a plastic Sunbeam model found at a thrift store for $5. [MrBananaHump] gutted the toaster and cleaned out years of toast crumbs. The Nintendo mainboard would …read more...

    A car is a rolling pile of hundreds of microcontrollers these days — just ask any greybeard mechanic and he’ll start his “carburetor” rant. All of these systems and sub-systems need to talk to each other in an electrically hostile environment, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that miscommunication, or even delayed communication, can have serious consequences. In-car networking is serious business. Mass production of cars makes many of the relevant transceiver ICs cheap for the non-automotive hardware hacker. So why don’t we see more hacker projects that leverage this tremendous resource base? The backbone of a car’s network …read more...

    At the Bay Area Maker Faire last weekend, Intel was showing off a couple of sexy newcomers in the Single Board Computer (SBC) market. It’s easy to get trapped into thinking that SBCs are all about simple boards with a double-digit price tag like the Raspberry Pi. How can you compete with a $35 computer that has a huge market share and a gigantic community? You compete by appealing to a crowd not satisfied with these entry-level SBCs, and for that Intel appears to be targeting a much higher-end audience that needs computer vision along with the speed and horsepower …read more...

    [Andrew] wanted a digital readout (DRO) for his mini lathe and mini mill, but found that buying even one DRO cost as much as either of his machines. The solution? You guessed it, he built his own for cheap, using inexpensive digital calipers purchased off eBay. The DRO he created features a touch screen with a menu system running on an LPCXpresso, while smaller OLED screens serve as labels for the 7-segment displays to the right. The DRO switches back and forth between the lathe and mill, and while the software isn’t done, [Andrew] hopes to be able to transfer …read more...

    Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is a great example of what polish can do for a fifteen year old series. The result? A very engaging take on the TRPG genre.

    Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar is simple average, based on the general perspective. Though it has several decent entertainment, it fails to fully grasp the potential of its characters or concept through the equivalent of 26 normal-length episodes, so whether it would be worth your time or not, it can be tricky to say. After using many new ideas along with characters introduced in the first episode the series stagnates for an longer period of time, remaining in the same setting and repeating a similar gags again and again....

    Have you ever seen an anime and thought to yourself, damn wish I could do that? Well, if so then youre just like me when I was watching Quan Zhi Gao Shou, aka The Kings Avatar. The anime follows Ye Xiu who starts the show off as a pro-gamer and is quickly forced into retirement....

    Amazon has put up a listing for Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters Part Two Blu-ray, revealing the North American cover along with several details.

    Maybe you will think that Heavy Object is another mecha anime with cliche character. However, I think you have to try it once if you think that way. This show brings different atmosphere of mecha genre. Its not only about huge robot vs robot, but you can see another battle between human vs human, and flesh-and-blood vs un-scratch huge machine called Object....
