Developers are building better software, faster, using AI

Software engineer Quoc Le grew up in rural Vietnam, in a small village that had no electricity till he was nine. But that didn’t stop him eventually becoming a PhD candidate at Stanford in 2007, working out a strategy that would let software learn things by itself. Academics had begun to report promising but very slow results with a method known as deep learning, which uses networks of simulated neurons. Le found a way to speed that method up significantly—by building simulated neural networks 100 times larger that could process thousands of times more data. It was an approach practical…

How to stop sites from ‘borrowing’ your CPU to mine cryptocurrency

Over the weekend, torrent portal The Pirate Bay was caught running a cryptocurrency miner on its website, queitly hijacking visitors’ computing resources to stack Monero coins, TorrentFreak reported. The Pirate Bay has since confessed its sins on its official blog, claiming the JavaScript mining implementation was “only a test” as part of their efforts to “get rid of all the ads” clustered on their site. “[W]e also need enough money to keep the site running,” the admins said. But should you feel this excuse isn’t cutting it for you – and if you want to stop other websites from doing…

iPhone protip: How to check which apps work on iOS 11 before updating

Several months after Apple announced the new and improved iOS 11 at Wolrdwide Developers Conference, the company is at long last gearing up to release the revamped version of its operating system for mobile. But there might be a nasty surprize in store for some iPhone users. While Apple has been running beta tests with the latest iteration of iOS for some time now, updating to the official version 11 could slow down – and perhaps even make unusable – a series of apps that are yet to be optimized for the new release. This is admittedly a nuisance, if…

Facebook’s open source React library is increasingly worrying devs

Facebook is in the middle of a fraught battle. No, it’s not over the pernicious tide of fake news surging onto our newsfeeds, nor is it about privacy issues on the platform. Rather, it pertains to how the social media giant deals with the open source community, the code it releases to the world, and one cool piece of software called React. Put simply, React is a JavaScript library that makes it easier for developers to write sophisticated front-ends. It was built by an engineer at Facebook, and in 2013, Facebook released it to the developer community under an open-source…

This wireless charger promises to juice up your phone from a foot away

While there have been numerous attempts to enable wireless charging in mobile devices, the closest we’ve come to a market-ready solution is Qi charging, which still requires you to either have a specially designed phone or case, as well as a pad on which to place your handset. Now, Pi, a new startup founded by MIT alumni, has demonstrated a desktop charger that can power up your gadgets up to a foot away in any direction, without requiring any physical contact. Sure, your phones and tablets will require custom cases or support for resonant induction like the new iPhones have…

Shure enters the Bluetooth earphone game with its $100 buds

Having tested a bunch of wireless earphones over the past few months, I’ve been glad to not have to wrestle with a cable that tangles in seconds in my pocket. But I haven’t been particularly impressed by the sound of sets that cost between $150 and $200. That’s why I’m excited to hear what Shure has in store. The pro audio brand has just launched its new SE112 and SE215 Bluetooth buds, which cost $100 and $149 respectively. Now, these aren’t truly wireless as the buds are connected with a short cable – but hopefully they’ll manage to pump out…

iOS 11 will annoy the hell out of design nerds

Apple is usually lauded for raising the bar for product and interface design, since way before it launched the first iPhone. But designer Ryan Lau has noticed a number of design issues in iOS 11 which lead him to believe that the company’s software development division is no longer paying as much attention to detail as it once used to. And he’s right. In an exhaustive post over at Hacker Noon, Lau lists several gross inconsistencies in UI elements, ranging from font rendering problems to alignment issues and buggy or redundant animation across iOS’ core interface and bundled apps. They…

Keybase launches Teams, a free encrypted alternative to Slack

Keybase, a tool for creating a secure online identity and privately messaging others, has launched Teams, an end-to-end encrypted group chat app that closely resembles Slack. Built by the folks behind OkCupid and SparkNotes, the service is currently in alpha, is completely free and promises to keep conversations hidden from prying eyes, even if your company’s servers are hacked. That’s because messages and files shared through Teams are encrypted the moment they’re sent, and stay encrypted when they’re received. Keybase Teams is currently free to use for the time being, though it told Fortune that it’ll eventually begin charging businesses…

Popular Steam extension could be spying on users

A popular extension that helps gamers buy and sell digital goods on the Steam platform is now attempting to track their movements all over the web. Steam Inventory Helper, or SIH, today prompted users to accept new permissions that, according to Redditor ‘wartab,’ would: Monitor when you are entering the site, where you are coming from on this site, when you are leaving the site, when you are clicking something, when you are moving your mouse (which they even failed to do properly), when you are having focus in an input, and you are pressing a key! It is not monitoring…
