    Drop out of the controversial Facebook app research

        Since a TechCrunch investigation published on Tuesday revealed that Facebook is using a secret research application, essentially an updated version of Onavo VPN, to collect data on teenage users, the news flow captured Silicon Valley by storm. Now the magnifier was aimed at the fact that tech companies are increasingly using to abuse Apple’s corporate developer program to download applications that violate the App Store terms of service to collect additional data about users.

    Microsoft really doesn't want you to use Internet Explorer anymore.

        Microsoft killed the Internet Explorer brand almost four years ago by choosing Edge as its modern browser for Windows 10. Internet Explorer remained the right channel for Windows and for business compatibility, but Microsoft does not support it with new web standards - this is outdated code, Chris Jackson , a cybersecurity expert in the Microsoft Windows division, now outlined what he calls "the dangers of using Internet Explorer as the default browser." While most consumers

    Famous travel apps can secretly record the screen of your iPhone, including credit card information.

        According to a TechCrunch study, a number of popular applications for airlines, hotels, and retailers use iPhones to write the screen without your knowledge or consent. The practice, known as replaying sessions, usually involves hiring a third-party firm, in this case, the research firm Glassbox, to introduce technology into a mobile application. From there, the Glassbox software records every action you take in the application, and also takes screenshots along the way. Even

    Divinity: Original Sin II’s Mac port is unusually great

        When you think about the weaknesses of the Mac platform, a couple of obvious areas come to mind. One is undoubtedly gaming. Despite the fact that Steam appeared on Mac in 2010, Windows remains in first place by the number of games released. Games that come up on macOS often work better when loaded on Windows on the same machine. Another disadvantage is Apple's inflexible hardware strategy, as the company often uses pedestrian GPUs and unpopular experiments, such as the MacBook Pro

    FCA's 2019 'Big Game Blitz' tries to buttonhook the Super Bowl

      Obviously it's expensive to advertise during the Super Bowl, so perhaps it's in the spirit of saving some cash that Fiat Chrysler has decided to launch a barrage of ads that won't air during the big game. It's presumably still hoping that these spots will ride the game's coattails all the way to a sales bump. FCA's buttonhook maneuver started on Monday with three videos: Devil Went Down to Georgia, Crusher and Can't Remember. None of them is

    A few months later, Facebook updated its iPhone XS Max, XR and new iPad Pro apps.

        It took several months, but Facebook finally updated its iOS apps to support the higher resolutions of the larger iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR phones that Apple released last fall, allowing Facebook to work with the device’s own resolution instead of just increasing the iPhone XS size, through 9to5Mac. The update also added support for large screens on the latest 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models released last fall, by removing the black bars that the application showed.

    Tesla's Model Y could be closer to a debut than we thought

      Tesla has been teasing the idea of an affordable companion for its Model 3 sedan for a while now, and during Wednesday's quarterly earnings call, Tesla CEO Elon Musk gave us maybe the biggest piece of news on the Model Y that we've yet seen. The Model Y will be based on the Model 3 sedan and will share as much as 75 percent of its parts with the most affordable Tesla. That's huge. We've been skeptical of Musk's claims that Model Y would be in production

    Watch SpaceX rocket's nose cone miss the boat, again

      As the old adage goes, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.  SpaceX made another attempt at catching a rocket's fairing (a protective nose cone), using a boat dubbed Mr. Steven.  Poor Mr. Steven. Maybe he's got butter fingers, according to a video posted by SpaceX on Tuesday. The fairing just slipped off the boat's net. In a tweet, SpaceX said this was "one of Mr. Steven's final West Coast fairing recovery tests before shipping out for the East Coast." This

    Apple worker charged with stealing self-driving-car secrets for China

      Apple's self-driving efforts have been largely shrouded in secrecy, and now the US government has brought charges against an Apple employee for allegedly looking behind that curtain with nefarious intent. The US has charged Jizhong Chen with theft of trade secrets. According to the complaint, which was filed in federal court in San Francisco last week, an unnamed Apple employee discovered Chen taking "wide-angled photographs" of Apple's top-secret work. Furthermore, it said, Chen
