03:41 AM EDT - Apr,18 2021 - post a comment

Sony has announced its 2021 phone lineup for consumers: the Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III. The two phones are both high-end models with similar specs and features, with the 5 III being the smaller of the two. Both phones have OLED displays with 120 Hz refresh and three 12-megapixel rear cameras. While the standard and wide-angle cameras are similar to last year's models, the new periscope-style telephoto camera has its own optical zoom feature, offering both 2.9x and 4.4x zoom. The main and telephoto cameras include OIS (optical image stabilization). The phones are powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 888 chip and offer excellent support for the (sub-6) 5G and 4G networks of T-Mobile and Verizon. Other specs include 4,500 mAh battery with 30W USB-PD fast charging, Android 11, NFC, memory card slot, headset jack, and IP68 water resistance. The stereo speakers are the first in a phone to support 360 Reality Audio. The Xperia 5 III has a 6.1-inch display with FHD+ resolution, 8 GB RAM, and 128 GB storage. The larger Xperia 1 III has a 6.5-inch display with 4K resolution, 12 GB RAM, and 256 GB storage. The 1 III also adds a ToF camera, wireless charging, Gorilla Glass Victus on the front, and speakers that are 40% louder than last year's model. The Xperia 1 III design consists of frosted glass and "blasted" metal, available in black or purple. The 5 III has a mirror finish and will be available in black or green. Both phones will be ship in the US "this summer". Pricing is to be announced.

Cardano Creator Charles Hoskinson Says Dogecoin Bubble Will Collapse - [briefly]
06:56 AM EDT - Apr,17 2021 - post a comment

Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson is sounding off on the Dogecoin (DOGE) mania, as the meme cryptocurrency skyrockets into the top seven crypto assets by market cap. This week Doge has been on a tear, increasing in price by 522% in just the past seven days and 118% in the past twenty-four hours. The asset has rallied 10,650% on the year from $0.004 in January to an all-time high of $0.43 and has entered the mainstream, garnering attention and support from Tesla CEO Elon Musk and billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban. Although Dogecoin entered the crypto world as a joke, Hoskinson warns that as the asset's price takes off into the stratosphere, a bubble is no doubt forming that will cause many individuals to lose an alarming amount of money very quickly.

Criminals Are Abandoning Bitcoin - [crime-law]
06:51 AM EDT - Apr,17 2021 - post a comment

A former acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Michael Morell believes the already limited use of Bitcoin in illicit activity is on the decline. In a letter published by global security publication The Cipher Brief, Morell says there is "mounting evidence" showing a "shift" by illicit users "from Bitcoin to cryptocurrencies with stronger anonymity" such as the Anonymity-Enhanced Cryptocurrencies (AECs). The former CIA director says online darknet marketplace (DNM) White House Market and ransomware-as-a-service group Sodinokibi are now only accepting privacy-focused cryptocurrencies for payments. "The prominent DNM 'White House Market' has moved to accepting Monero (XMR) exclusively. Similarly, the ransomware group, Sodinokibi, no longer accepts Bitcoin as payment and will only take Monero." According to Morell, Bitcoin's publicly available and verifiable blockchain makes it ill-suited for criminal activity.

"In fact, its transparent nature led one blockchain analytics expert to compare transactions on blockchain to having the 'whole world' be a witness to paying someone $2,000 in a dark alley. Based on our research, I have come to believe that if there was one financial ecosystem for bad actors to use that would maximize law enforcement's chances of identifying them and their illicit activities, it would be blockchain."

Dogecoin has risen 400 percent in the last week - [briefly]
04:53 PM EDT - Apr,16 2021 - post a comment

Dogecoin, a blockchain-based digital currency named for a meme about an excitable canine, has seen its price rise by a factor of five over the last week. The price spike has made it one of the world's 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies, with a market capitalization of $45 billion. Understanding the value of cryptocurrencies is never easy, and it's especially hard for Dogecoin, which was created as a joke. Dogecoin isn't known for any particular technology innovations and doesn't seem to have many practical applications. What Dogecoin does have going for it, however, is memorable branding and an enthusiastic community of fans. And in 2021, that counts for a lot. In recent months, we've seen shares of GameStop soar to levels that are hard to justify based on the performance of GameStop's actual business. People bought GameStop because it was fun and they thought the price might go up. So too for Dogecoin. Tesla CEO Elon Musk may have also played an important role in Dogecoin's ascendancy. Musk has periodically tweeted about the cryptocurrency, and those tweets are frequently followed by rallies in Dogecoin's price. Late on Wednesday night, Musk tweeted out this image: Dogecoin's price tripled over the next 36 hours. But what most of you don't know is that 97% of all inflows into $DOGE coin are being made with Tether $USDT. Price manipulation at it's finest!

Bitcoin Dips as Turkey Bans Crypto Payments - [briefly]
07:56 AM EDT - Apr,16 2021 - post a comment

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have been banned as a form of payment for goods and services in Turkey, according to a published early today by the country's central bank. Bitcoin fell 2% to approximately $61,600 shortly after the announcement, which cited "irreparable" possible damages and significant risks with transactions involving cryptocurrencies. The new legislation goes into effect on April 30. Cryptocurrencies had been in the midst of a boom in the country, which has seen inflation weaken the value of the Turkish Lira. The Turkish lira hit near historic lows last month, coinciding with a spike in Turkey's Google searches for Bitcoin. The Central Bank of Turkey (CBRT) said that the ban, on direct or indirect use of cryptocurrencies and other such digital assets, was necessary because these assets were "neither subject to any regulation and supervision mechanisms nor a central regulatory authority," among other security risks.

Turkey accounts for a large percentage of cryptocurrency use in the Middle East. The country ranks 29th out of the 154 countries on forensics firm Chainalysis' Global Crypto Adoption Index-and number one in the Middle East. On Turkey-based exchange BTCTurk, the most common trade is lira for Bitcoin.

Army of the Dead - Official Trailer (Netflix) - [briefly]
05:11 AM EDT - Apr,14 2021 - post a comment

From filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Zack Snyder's Justice League), ARMY OF THE DEAD takes place following a zombie outbreak that has left Las Vegas in ruins and walled off from the rest of the world. When Scott Ward (Dave Bautista), a former zombie war hero who's now flipping burgers on the outskirts of the town he now calls home, is approached by casino boss Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada), it's with the ultimate proposition: break into the zombie-infested quarantine zone to retrieve $200 million sitting in a vault beneath the strip before the city is nuked by the government in 32 hours. With little left to lose, Ward takes on the challenge, assembling a ragtag team of experts for the heist. With a ticking clock, a notoriously impenetrable vault, and a smarter, faster horde of Alpha zombies closing in, only one thing's for certain in the greatest heist ever attempted: survivors take all. Starring Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Ana de la Reguera, Theo Rossi, Matthias Schweighofer, Nora Arnezeder, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tig Notaro, Raul Castillo, Huma Qureshi, Samantha Win, Michael Cassidy, Richard Cetrone, and Garret Dillahunt.

Nvidia Targets $150 Million Revenue From New Ethereum Mining Processor - [briefly]
12:07 PM EDT - Apr,13 2021 - post a comment

Chipmaker Nvidia has raised its 2022 first-quarter revenue estimate from the sales of its new cryptocurrency mining processor (CMP) to $150 million, up from the previously expected $50 million, the company announced on Monday, April 12. Nvidia's new CMP was first announced in February this year and is principally designed for industrial-scale mining of Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap. The projection comes amid soaring global demand for graphic chips during the COVID-19 pandemic, with Nvidia saying that its overall first-quarter revenue, including CMP sales, will be above the earlier forecast of $5.3 billion.

Peter Brandt Pinpoints Massive 275% Price Target for XRP - [briefly]
07:36 AM EDT - Apr,10 2021 - post a comment

A closely-followed trader who accurately called the timing of Bitcoin's collapse in January 2018 says the price of XRP is about to hit the stratosphere. In a new tweet, Peter Brandt tells his 459,600 followers that XRP just broke out of a massive bullish pattern after three years of consolidation. If XRP is to follow Brandt's script, it can potentially surge by a minimum of 276% from its current value of $1.02 en route to its all-time high of $3.84. The price of Ripple's native asset could go a lot higher as Brandt is predicting a new all-time high for XRP. The veteran trader's tweet about the fourth-largest cryptocurrency's bullish breakout comes just days after he highlighted that the XRP/BTC pair is flashing a strong buy signal.

Riot Buys Massive Bitcoin Mining Site in Texas for $650M - [briefly]
02:57 AM EDT - Apr,09 2021 - post a comment

Northern Data AG, a European data infrastructure company, has sold its US subsidiary Whinstone Inc. to Riot Blockchain, a publicly traded Bitcoin mining firm. Riot Blockchain will take control of Whinstone's planned mining operations in Texas. According to a press release from Northern Data, the deal is worth €67 million cash ($80 million) plus 12% of Riot's shares, worth upwards of $570 million. The entire deal comes to more than $650 million. Northern Data purchased Whinstone, which operates data centers, in November 2019. Its plan was to create "the largest data center in North America and the largest Bitcoin mining facility in the world." Construction of the one-gigawatt facility, which sits upon 100 acres in Rockdale, Texas, was set to conclude by the end of 2020. Videos posted to Whinstone's Facebook page show that it's made significant progress despite difficulties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Northern Data, the data center is already operational, though it's unclear whether any Bitcoin mining is taking place there.

Riot isn't the only Bitcoin mining company focused on Texas. China-based circuit maker Bitmain, one of the world's largest Bitcoin mining players, set up operations at an abandoned Alcoa aluminum plant across the street from Whinstone's operation. Layer1, a newer player backed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, has a plant in West Texas. It may soon be joined by Canadian mining firm Argo Blockchain, which has purchased land there. Texas has become a popular destination stateside due to the state's light regulations and its relatively cheap electricity. In addition to the crude oil The Lone Star State is known for, it also has large quantities of natural gas and can tap into wind energy.

Apple releases seventh iOS 14.5, watchOS 7.4 - [briefly]
03:32 PM EDT - Apr,07 2021 - post a comment

Today, Apple is releasing yet another round of betas for its next minor updates. This time though, there's no new build for macOS 11.2 Big Sur. The seventh developer previews are available for iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, watchOS 7.4, and tvOS 14.5. While seven seems like an extraordinarily high amount of beta revisions to go through for a minor update, it's worth noting that there are actually a bunch of new features on the way. A big one is that iPhone users will finally be able to unlock their iPhone with an Apple Watch, solving the pain point of trying to use Face ID with a mask on. There are also new emoji characters, and support for new Xbox and PlayStation controllers, something that Apple has been promising for a while. Another thing you'll see is more privacy controls, with apps asking if they're allowed to track you. As for when these updates will actually ship, it should be soon. This is the seventh build, and while there could be more, Apple really doesn't go too far beyond this. Plus, WWDC is in June, and that's when Apple will announce its next big major updates.

Android malware hid in fake Netflix app and spread through WhatsApp - [security]
03:22 PM EDT - Apr,07 2021 - post a comment

Despite Google's efforts to combat malware on Android, every now and then a new threat slips through the cracks. Researchers at Check Point Research have shared details (via ZDNet) on a threat that could have lured Android users with the promise of free access to Netflix content and spread through WhatsApp. As noted in the company's blog post, the malware lives in an app called FlixOnline, which was available on the Play Store and promised users the ability to watch Netflix content from all over the world. However, instead of doing that, the app requests a handful of permissions that enable it to steal user data and spread to other users more easily. Once all permissions were granted, the app hid itself from the app launcher so it would be harder to delete. Upon being installed, the app requests a few special permissions - displaying over other apps, ignore battery optimizations, and notification access. Displaying over other apps means the app can disguise itself and display a fake login screen on top of other apps, leading users to enter their personal information and sending it to the attackers. Meanwhile, ignoring battery optimizations means the app won't be killed in the background, so it can stay active even if it's been idle for a while. Notification access is potentially the most concerning one. For one thing, the app can harvest information from the user's notifications, including messages they receive. Not only that, the app can perform quick actions on those notifications, like replying to messages on WhatsApp, which is exactly what it does to spread to other users. Whenever the affected user gets a notification from WhatsApp, the fake app hides it and sends a reply promising two months of free Netflix access with a download link that installs the malware on that device as well. Check Point Research reported the malware to Google prior to disclosing the vulnerability and the FlixOnline app was removed from the Play Store quickly. However, roughly 500 users downloaded the app over two months, which could have spread the malware to many other users through WhatsApp. Anyone who has been affected should uninstall the app from the device settings and change their passwords.

Samsung Reveals Galaxy A42 5G, A02s for US - [mobile]
01:27 PM EDT - Apr,07 2021 - post a comment

Samsung today announced the US launch of five new phones in the company's affordable Galaxy A series, including three 5G models. The Galaxy A32 5G will be the most affordable 5G model at just $280, and will be exclusive to T-Mobile (and Metro) at launch. Samsung is able to offer 5G at this prince thanks in part to the MediaTek Dimensity 720 5G chip in the A32 5G, whereas the two pricier 5G models use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. Samsung announced the A32 5G and A52 5G a few weeks ago, but withheld US launch details at that time. The Galaxy A52 5G will run $500 and come to both AT&T and T-Mobile (including Metro). New is the Galaxy A42 5G, which is similar to the A32 5G but adds mmWave 5G for Verizon. It also swaps the 90 Hz LCD display for a 60 Hz Super AMOLED display, switches to an in-display (optical) fingerprint reader, has double the storage at 128 GB, and has a different (but unspecified) processor. Most other keys specs are identical to the A32 5G. The A42 has a unique design on the back divided into four equal parts. Verizon starts selling the Galaxy A42 5G tomorrow for $400. All three 5G models will be available by the end of this week. The two more affordable 4G models are the A12 and A02s. We reported on the Galaxy A12 for AT&T on Monday. That model will also come to T-Mobile this week, and Verizon on April 29th. The most affordable model is the new Galaxy A02s (shown), "starting at" $110, although Verizon will sell it for $150 and T-Mobile says "Stay tuned for pricing details." The A02s has the same 6.5-inch HD display and huge 5,000 mAh battery as the A12, but with expected cost-trimming on the cameras (13 megapixel main and no wide-angle), processor (Snapdragon 450), and RAM (2 GB instead of 3). The A02s also loses NFC and the fingerprint reader, but keeps 15W fast charging, USB-C, memory card slot, and the headset jack. The A02 is distinguished by its textured design on the back, divided into sections diagonally. Verizon starts selling the A02s on April 29th; T-Mobile has yet to announce a launch date.

Chinese Bitcoin Mining To Reach 130 Million Metric Tons By 2024 - [briefly]

Bitcoin mining in China is projected to peak in 2024, per a new study. Researchers claim that Bitcoin's growing energy consumption could undermine global sustainability efforts. If left unchecked, China's Bitcoin mining industry could generate as much as 130.5 million metric tons of carbon emissions by 2024, according to a study published in the scientific journal Nature. Per 2019 aviation figures (the last year not impacted by COVID travel restrictions) this would equate to roughly 14% of the world's annual carbon footprint from flying. The Nature study, "Policy assessments for the carbon emission flows and sustainability of Bitcoin blockchain operation in China," predicted the impact of China's Bitcoin mining industry through to 2024. There's a related article from BBC News from Februray 2021. This article mentions another study from the University of Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF). It calculates that Bitcoin's total energy consumption is somewhere between 40 and 445 annualised terawatt hours (TWh), with a central estimate of about 130 terawatt hours. The UK's electricity consumption is a little over 300 TWh a year, while Argentina uses around the same amount of power as the CCAF's best guess for Bitcoin. And the electricity the Bitcoin miners use overwhelmingly comes from polluting sources. The CCAF team surveys the people who manage the Bitcoin network around the world on their energy use and found that about two-thirds of it is from fossil fuels. Huge computing power - and therefore energy use - is built into the way the blockchain technology that underpins the cryptocurrency has been designed.
