Malicious actors are constantly taking advantage of technological innovations and breakthroughs to devise new ways to flood the Internet with new malware that circumvent security tools, propagate within networks and siphon critical data for… Read More

    U.K. carrier Three says it will start trialling ad blocking next month with a 24-hour opt-in test

    Reddit launches image uploads, ditching alliance with Imgur

    Reddit never let you upload images, until now. That could dismantle Reddit’s informal alliance with image-sharing community Imgur. That’s where Redditors would typically post their images or GIFs and then share the links on Reddit. The image uploading feature begins rolling out today with 50 Reddit communities, including Art, Aww, Food, Funny, Gifs and EarthPorn (pretty nature pics). Read More

    Salesforce inks deal with AWS to expand international presence

    AWS announced today that it was expanding its relationship with Salesforce.com, with Salesforce naming the cloud giant a preferred cloud provider. The agreement should help Salesforce increase its international presence without having to build its own data centers in countries that have data sovereignty laws, which require that data stays in-country. It’s expensive to build their… Read More

  • Nuheara’s IQbuds are somewhere between wireless headphones and a hearing aid

    Nuheara’s IQbuds are somewhere between wireless headphones and a hearing aid

    I went into the Nuheara demo not knowing what to expect. Not in the sense of, “How good will these be?” so much as, “I’m not exactly sure what these things do.” Like, are they headphones? Are they hearing aids? The answer, interestingly enough, is a little bit of both. The IQbuds are, ostensibly, Bluetooth earbuds. That they’re completely wireless is enough… Read More

    Less than a month after their last successful mission, SpaceX is back at it. Falcon 9 is scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida at 5:40pm EDT tomorrow with telecommunications satellite Thaicom 8 on board.

    Terrapattern is reverse image search for maps, powered by a neural network

    Terrapattern is a visual search engine that, from the moment you first use it, you wonder: Why didn’t Google come up with this 10 years ago? Click on a feature on the map — a baseball diamond, a marina, a roundabout — and it immediately highlights everything its algorithm thinks looks like it. It’s remarkably fast, simple to use and potentially very powerful. Read More

    A lending case involving top VCs moves toward a trial

    Elevate, a venture-backed company that uses big data to assess loan applications from people with low credit scores, has been called out as a predatory lender, including in Fortune last year. One reason among others is that the APR on some of its loans is a stunning 349 percent. Yet the company’s predecessor, Think Finance, which was founded in 2001 and quietly spun out Elevate into… Read More
