    The potential dangers of the booming use of new technology in the office and at home were outlined by researchers at the Toho University school of medicine in Tokyo, Japan, in the Journal of Epidemiology. They tested 10,000 workers with an average age of 43 as part of a general medical check-up as well as collecting their histories of computer use and eye disease. Just over 5% had visual field abnormalities and there appeared to be a significant link between these and heavy computer use among those with long or short sight. But detailed eye tests revealed that a third...

    The Department of Justice wiped text messages between former FBI employees Lisa Page and Peter Strozk from their cell phones before the Office of the Inspector General could review them, a new report from the DOJ watchdog reveals. Page and Strozk’s involvement with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been heavily scrutinized after it was revealed they had sent numerous anti-Trump text messages back and forth to one another. Mueller has been tasked with looking into whether or not Donald Trump and his campaign associates coordinated with Russian officials to steal the 2016 election away from Hillary Clinton. The 11-page...

    New York (CNN Business)Stocks fell sharply Monday, dragged down by reports that Apple's newest line of phones may not be selling as well as Apple or its investors had hoped. The Dow fell more than 500 points and the Nasdaq tumbled 2.8%. Apple's stock fell once more after the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple has cut orders for its iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The new iPhones, which Apple unveiled in September, cost more than previous versions. The $749 iPhone XR is the least expensive new iPhone, but it costs $50 more than last year's cheapest...

    TAIPEI -- Apple has signaled disappointing demand for the new iPhone XR, telling its top smartphone assemblers Foxconn and Pegatron to halt plans for additional production lines dedicated to the relatively cost-effective model that hit shelves in late October, sources say. "For the Foxconn side, it first prepared nearly 60 assembly lines for Apple's XR model, but recently uses only around 45 production lines as its top customer said it does not need to manufacture that many by now," a source familiar with the situation said. That means Foxconn, the Taiwanese company traded as Hon Hai Precision Industry, would produce...

    The bizarre incident happened during the installation of an MRI machine and was a surprise to everyone except Apple. An IT worker at a medical facility made a remarkable discovery about iPhones and Apple watches earlier this month, after a freshly installed MRI machine appeared to disable every iOS device in the hospital. As detailed in a post on the r/sysadmin subreddit, Eric Woolridge, a system administrator at Morris Hospital in Illinois, was flooded with calls on October 8 after several iPhones owned by hospital employees all stopped working for no discernible reason. At the time, the hospital was having...

    Apple CEO Tim Cook has upped the ante in its denial of an investigative report claiming a Chinese spy chip was embedded into the tech giant's servers, telling BuzzFeed News that Bloomberg must retract the story--"This did not happen. There's no truth to this." "I was involved in our response to this story from the beginning," Cook said according to Buzzfeed. "I personally talked to the Bloomberg reporters along with Bruce Sewell who was then our general counsel. We were very clear with them that this did not happen, and answered all their questions. ...

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9: 1TB of smartphone storage now a reality (at a price - $1600)

    About $1,600. That's how much it will cost you to have a Note 9 with 1TB of storage. Samsung's new Galaxy Note 9 comes in two configurations -- a 128GB model with 6GB of RAM for $999.99, and a 512GB model with 8GB of RAM for... wait for it... $1,249.99. Now that 512GB model already offers twice as much storage capacity as the higher-end iPhone X (and much more RAM, for only $100 extra). But where's the fun in only having half a terabyte of storage? That only allows you to store about 2,300 movies, or some 93,000 photos. We...

    It finally happened. The feds forced an Apple iPhone X owner to unlock their device with their face. A child abuse investigation unearthed by Forbes includes the first known case in which law enforcement used Apple Face ID facial recognition technology to open a suspect's iPhone. That's by any police agency anywhere in the world, not just in America. It happened on August 10, when the FBI searched the house of 28-year-old Grant Michalski, a Columbus, Ohio, resident who would later that month be charged with receiving and possessing child pornography. With a search warrant in hand, a federal investigator...

    Apple CEO Tim Cook just announced a new series of larger iPhone models, and the products are already being criticized by some women who claim the phones have a sexist design. On Wednesday, Cook announced that the company would be expanding their iPhone X line with three new phones.

    U.S. President Trump tweeted on Saturday that Apple Inc (AAPL.O) should make products inside the United States if it wants to avoid tariffs on Chinese imports. The company told trade officials in a letter on Friday that the proposed tariffs would affect prices for a “wide range” of Apple products, including its Watch, but it did not mention the iPhone. Trump, speaking on Friday aboard Air Force One, said the administration had tariffs planned for an additional $267 billion worth of Chinese goods. Trump tweeted that “Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on...

    RUSH: How many are you are aware that Barack Hussein O was in Boston over the weekend and made a private speech, an off-the-record speech? Did you hear about this? MIT’s Sloan Sports Analytics Conference invited Obama to come make a speech, reflections on his presidency and thoughts on other things. And the command went out that Obama’s speech was to be off-the-record, that nobody but nobody was to record it. Nobody but nobody was to report it! Even though they invited journalists in there, nobody was supposed to leak it. Nobody was supposed to say a word about what...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that his country will ban US electronics after a diplomatic feud pushed it into a currency crisis. He specifically highlighted Apple, the Associated Press reports, saying Turkey would stop bringing in iPhones in favor of devices from South Korea's Samsung or Turkey's own Vestel. "We will implement a boycott against America's electronic goods," he said. "If they have the iPhone, there is Samsung elsewhere. We have Vestel." It's not clear how Erdogan would enforce the boycott, the AP noted. A boycott would serve as retaliation against the US sanctions on two Turkish ministers...

    By surrendering to the triple-lens competition, Apple has once more given away the high-ground to manufacturers such as Samsung and Nokia who are expected to have triple-lensed cameras on handsets before the end of the year. Once more the iPhone will be playing catch-up, hoping its fan base will be happy to wait for ‘new’ technology already available in the mainstream.

    A new facility in North Texas is starting up its production line for some of the technology that powers the Apple iPhone X's latest features. Silicon Valley-based Finisar has hired 200 people and begun operations at a new plant in Sherman, a city about 65 miles north of Dallas. The facility produces vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers, or VCSELs, that are used in smartphones. The lasers enable some of the iPhone X's features, such as facial recognition that unlocks the phone, a portrait mode that takes professional-looking photos and a tool that creates animated emojis based on the user's facial expressions.

    Anyone following the investigation of the Clinton campaign's attempt to frame Trump probably already knows that while the primary vector for the Clinton-Steele dossier, a document alleging Russian control over Trump created by the Clinton campaign and used as the basis for the FBI investigation, was Fusion GPS and its media and Dem allies, a secondary vector was McCain. Now it turns out that McCain had a different version of the Clinton-Steele dossier. Fusion GPS has discussed doing more work on the dossier afterward and it's likely that the version McCain had was a newer copy. It would explain why...

    “Grayshift has gone to great lengths to future proof their technology and stated that they have already defeated this security feature in the beta build.” Image: Malwarebytes Apple confirmed to The New York Times Wednesday it was going to introduce a new security feature, first reported by Motherboard. USB Restricted Mode, as the new feature is called, essentially turns the iPhone’s lightning cable port into a charge-only interface if someone hasn’t unlocked the device with its passcode within the last hour, meaning phone forensic tools shouldn’t be able to unlock phones. Naturally, this feature has sent waves throughout the mobile...
