When They See Us - Official Trailer - Netflix - [briefly]
03:36 AM EDT - Apr,20 2019 - post a comment

Based on a true story that gripped the country, When They See Us will chronicle the notorious case of five teenagers of color, labeled the Central Park Five, who were convicted of a rape they did not commit. The four part limited series will focus on the five teenagers from Harlem -- Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise. Beginning in the spring of 1989, when the teenagers were first questioned about the incident, the series will span 25 years, highlighting their exoneration in 2002 and the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014. When They See Us was created by Ava DuVernay, who also co-wrote and directed the four parts. Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King from Participant Media, Oprah Winfrey from Harpo Films, and Jane Rosenthal, Berry Welsh and Robert De Niro from Tribeca Productions will executive produce the limited series alongside DuVernay through her banner, Forward Movement. In addition to DuVernay, Attica Locke, Robin Swicord, and Michael Starrburry also serve as writers on the limited series. When They See Us premieres May 31 only on Netflix.

Te latest Windows update breaks McAfee, Sophos, Avira, Avast - [security]
04:17 PM EDT - Apr,19 2019 - post a comment

Affected machines seem to be fine until an attempt is made to log in, at which point the system grinds to a halt. It's not immediately clear if systems are freezing altogether or just going extraordinarily slowly. Some users have reported that they can log in, but the process takes ten or more hours. Logging in to Windows 7, 8.1, Server 2008 R2, Server 2012, and Server 2012 R2 are all affected.

Booting into safe mode is unaffected, and the current advice is to use this method to disable the antivirus applications and allow the machines to boot normally. Sophos additionally reports that adding the antivirus software's own directory to the list of excluded locations also serves as a fix, which is a little strange.

Microsoft is currently blocking the update for Sophos, Avira, and ArcaBit users, with McAfee still under investigation. ArcaBit and Avast have published updates that address the problem. Avast recommends leaving systems at the login screen for about 15 minutes and then rebooting; the antivirus software should then update itself automatically in the background.

Avast and McAfee also provide a hint at the root cause: it appears that Microsoft has made a change to CSRSS ("client/server runtime subsystem"), a core component of Windows that coordinates and manages Win32 applications. This is reportedly making the antivirus software deadlock. The antivirus applications are trying to get access to some resource, but they're blocked from doing so because they have already taken exclusive access to the resource.

Given that patches have appeared from antivirus vendors rather than an update from Microsoft, it suggests (though does not guarantee) that whatever change Microsoft made to CSRSS is revealing latent bugs in the antivirus software. On the other hand, it's possible that CSRSS is now doing something that Microsoft previously promised wouldn't happen.

Cricket Launches Data-Only Plans - [mobile]
05:31 AM EDT - Apr,19 2019 - post a comment

Cricket has announced new service plans that include only data and messaging, with no access to voice service. With the plans, messaging (SMS and MMS) is unlimited, but international service is not included. Data allotments are for high-speed data at the full speed of AT&T's LTE network, instead of capped at 8 Mbps as with Cricket's other plans. Streaming video is limited to SD quality by default, although HD can be enabled. The plans cost: $25/month for 3 GB of data, $35 for 10 GB, and $70 for 30 GB. A $5/month discount is available for the top plan when using AutoPay, making it $65/month. Add-ons are also available for even more data: $5 for an extra 2 GB or $10 for 5 GB. Cricket is also launching the Cricket Turbo Hotspot, a new mobile hotspot made by Netgear, for $120. Lastly, customers who switch to Cricket can take $200 off a Samsung Galaxy S10, or get the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pure for free.

AT&T Prepaid Promo Doubles the Data - [mobile]
05:31 AM EDT - Apr,19 2019 - post a comment

AT&T has a new promotion offering double the data on its mid-range plan. For $40/month, customers get 16GB of high-speed data, instead of the usual 8GB. The plan also includes unlimited talk and text across North America. The promo requires that customers enroll in AutoPay (without AutoPay, the plan is $50/month and only includes the usual 8 GB of data.) The plan includes rollover, where unused data is available the following month. The promo works by adding a special 8 GB block of "bonus data" each month. That bonus data is used first, followed by the standard data allotment. The bonus data does not roll over. Therefore if a customer used 8 GB one month, they could have up to 24 GB of high-speed data available the following month (8 bonus + 8 standard + 8 rollover). The plan also includes HD video and mobile hotspot. The next plan up is the unlimited prepaid plan for $65/month ($55 with AutoPay), but that does not include HD video nor mobile hotspot. The double-data promo will be available until July 11th, but customers who sign up before then will continue to receive the double data as long as they stay on the plan and signed up for AutoPay.

Samsung shares fall following reports of Galaxy Fold issues - [briefly]
11:25 AM EDT - Apr,18 2019 - post a comment

Despite tech reviewers only having their Galaxy Folds for a few days, there have been several reports of them experiencing display problems, including a piece of debris getting under the screen and eventually causing it to break, and an instance where one side of the display started flickering white. In some cases, the damage was caused by users missing the warning label on the phone and removing the protective layer. Samsung only recently started taking pre-orders for the $1,890 phone. The company said initial supplies are limited-they're already out of stock-and early impressions before the screen issues appeared were positive. But reports of the phones' questionable durability have affected Samsung's share price. The company said in a statement that it would be "thoroughly inspecting" these review units to discover the cause of the problems, adding that it will also ensure warnings not to remove the protective layer are more clearly delivered to customers. Some analysts believe that Samsung will be able to address the problems before the Galaxy Fold officially launches in just over one week (April 26). But those who spent nearly $2,000 on a pre-order might be feeling a little nervous right now.
Samsung's full statement:
A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.

Separately, a few reviewers reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the screen. The main display on the Galaxy Fold features a top protective layer, which is part of the display structure designed to protect the screen from unintended scratches. Removing the protective layer or adding adhesives to the main display may cause damage. We will ensure this information is clearly delivered to our customers.
