amazon echo sub and smart plug leak ahead of event
the smart plug, meanwhile, is fairly self-explanatory: it's a wall wart that brings basic alexa voice control to any device, no smart home hub required. you could turn off a light or power up the coffee machine without having to upgrade either of them. there's room for skepticism over the price, however. while amazon listed the same october 11th release date, it also gave the smart plug a staggering £95 ($125) price. that's far pricier than existing smart plugs, and there's nothing to indicate that amazon's device is particularly special beyond the alexa link. this may be a placeholder price rather than the exact amount you'll pay.

the esa teamed with nissan to build an off-road astronomy lab
the trailer boasts a refrigerated interior that helps stabilize the telescope and battery packs can power a wifi hotspot, a laptop station and a uhf transmitter for data relay. further, the truck itself makes use of red lighting in order to cut down on light pollution while the propilot driver assistance technology takes the trailer into account and helps locate parking that best accommodates the trailer and telescope.nissan and esa use the gaia mission as an example of how the dark sky concept could be used. researchers are using the gaia satellite to map our galaxy's stars and scientists often need to do follow-up observations from here on earth. but those observations need to be done in very dark and remote places, which aren't easy to get to, especially with a high-power telescope in tow. but the dark sky concept allows for that remote viewing while transporting the telescope safely even when going off road.`telescopes like the one in this trailer are needed in studies of planets and stars in our galaxy, facilitating earth-based follow-up campaigns enabled by the gaia data,` fred jansen, esa's senior mission manager for gaia, said in a statement. `it's been an exciting journey so far and has truly demonstrated what can happen when innovation and astronomy meet.`

newegg fell victim to month-long card skimming hack
newegg has since removed the code, but it's not certain how many people have been affected. we've asked the company for comment. in an email to customers, it said it had `not yet determined` which accounts had been compromised but was warning potentially affected users to watch their card activity. it promised an faq on the breach by september 21st.it's not certain who's responsible, as the intruders went to pains to hide their identities (such as registering a domain with private details).the attack could have far-reaching repercussions. the technology-focused shop is one of the largest online retailers in the us, with more than 45 million visitors every month. even if only a fraction of those visitors make purchases, that's a large number of people whose cards might be in thieves' hands. the incident also suggests that magecart is quickly becoming the weapon of choice for internet criminals who want to scoop up card data with relatively little effort.

bose sleepbuds review: helpful but needs improvement
i've been a light sleeper all of my life, and living in a loud city for a decade wasn't exactly conducive to getting a good night's rest. i expected the situation to improve when we moved out to the semi-country, and it did for the most part. there was just one problem: my husband started snoring.i tried a number of different things to deal with the sound: a loud white noise fan mixed with a white noise machine, a pillow over my head and the tried and true `constantly jabbing him every time he started snoring so that neither of us slept a wink` method (that last option was supremely unpopular in my house).but in june, my husband took matters into his own hands and sent me a link to the newly released bose sleepbuds. after almost three months of continuous use, i'm ready to pronounce these the cure to my sleep ills... with some caveats, of course.the bose sleepbuds are designed for one thing only: sleeping. these cannot play your music. at $249.95, that's a lot of money to drop on a single-function device.the packaging is the sort of quality you'd expect from bose. once you open the box, you're greeted with the shiny white sleepbuds nestled in a silver case. lighting on the case indicates how much charge they have (one to five dots) and whether the sleepbuds are currently charging. the case slides open smoothly and closes with a satisfying click, holding the earbuds secure so they don't jostle free from the charger if you're traveling. they come with two additional ...

facebook’s 'war room' is its latest effort to protect elections
`we see this as probably the biggest company-wide reorientation since our shift from desktops to mobile phones,` samidh chakrabarti, head of facebook's elections and civic engagement team, told the new york times. the room will house computers and tvs tuned into news channels.chakrabarti told the publication that the dashboards designed by the company will let those in the war room zero in on specific stories that see a spike in circulation, for example, or help them observe an increase in automated account creation within a geographic region. facebook tested the system last december when alabama held a special senate election and it has been tweaking the software ever since, redesigning it in conjunction with major elections around the world. the latest version is set to debut in the war room next week.the room and those inside of it are meant to back up facebook's other safeguards, which include a number of measures aimed at stemming the spread of misinformation. since acknowledging its role in the spread of fake news ahead of the 2016 us presidential election, the social media giant has implemented features that disincentivize spreading fake news, deemphasize false news stories and requires those buying political ads to disclose who and where they are. `the best outcome for us is that nothing happens in the war room,` said chakrabarti. `everything else we are doing is defenses we are putting down to stop this in the first place.`the company also announced during a ...

teenage engineering's op-z synth finally goes on sale in october
the op-z also packs in 16 independent synth, sampler and control tracks alongside 160 programmable patterns and, of course, midi. when it comes to visuals, unity 3d integration and support for dmx light sequencing is here to lend a hand, and you can instantly sync images taken with a phone camera with the unit. there's also a motion sensor inside with bluetooth, usb-c and 3.5mm connectivity all on board. the op-z even has a built-in microphone, should you need it.the op-z is no doubt an evolution from the company's first instrument, the op-1, that debuted in 2010. teenage engineering says there are `modules` in the works that will expand the abilities of the op-z even further -- the first of which will arrive later this year. in the meantime, early adopters can employ an ios app that uses your phone or tablet as a display to keep tabs on things. and yes, the instrument will work with a laptop as well.teenage engineering is all about portability when it comes to its products, and the op-z is no different. while this new piece of gear will likely cater to a more experienced audience than the hobbyist-focused pocket operators many of us here at engadget enjoy, the company is making sure a more robust production rig doesn't require extra effort to lug around.

amazon could open 3,000 cashierless go stores by 2021
according to people familiar with the matter, the company could have 10 locations running by the end of the year and as many as 50 in 2019. one major hurdle, however, would be the cost -- bloomberg's sources said the first amazon go store needed more than $1 million worth of hardware. focusing on prepared foods rather than groceries could help boost profit margins, and some of the existing stores are already doing that. additionally, opening multiple stores in the same metro area could help minimize costs since they could in theory share a centralized food production facility.bloomberg notes that with amazon's focus on dense metro areas, those likely to be affected by the cashierless stores include businesses like subway, panera and pret a manger -- restaurants that allow for quick eating or convenient takeaway.amazon currently has little competition when it comes to its go stores, though that could change soon. microsoft reportedly has its own checkout-free technology in the works and standard cognition opened up a cashierless store in san francisco earlier this month.

california may ban terrible default passwords on connected devices
if a device requires you to sign in, manufacturers will either have to use unique preprogrammed passwords -- see ya never, username: admin/password: admin -- or make you change the credentials the first time you use it. companies will also have to `equip the device with a reasonable security feature or features that are appropriate to the nature and function of the device.`if brown signs the bill into law, it will take effect at the beginning of 2020. but critics claim the wording is vague and doesn't go far enough in ensuring manufacturers don't include unsecured features.`it's like dieting, where people insist you should eat more kale, which does little to address the problem you are pigging out on potato chips,` robert graham of errata security said in a blog post. `the key to dieting is not eating more but eating less.` given the huge number of connected devices available, it's also not clear how the state plans to enforce and regulate the rules.still, it's a step towards protecting consumers from the litany of attacks, exploits, and security flawson connected devices that threatenconsumers every day. including fuzzy wording in the draft language may actually be a positive, as technology companies (and hackers) typically move faster than lawmakers can legislate, so more concrete security measures that the bill could have laid out may soon seem antiquated anyway.it's possible that, should the law come into effect, manufacturers will adopt the same security meas...

mars trips may involve less radiation exposure than previously thought
expedition members would still face a daunting challenge, of course. even if the radiation is manageable on the ways to and from the red planet, there's still the matter of radiation while on the surface. mars has neither the thick atmosphere nor magnetic field needed to keep out harmful cosmic rays, so astronauts will need some kind of protection even when they're firmly on martian soil.this is also assuming there aren't advancements in radiation shielding, and there might be some on the way. nasa is testing an anti-radiation vest aboard the orion capsule later in 2018, for instance. while radiation will likely remain a serious concern in deep space travel for a long time to come, it's not necessarily insurmountable.

'mandy,' 'succession' and 'great news'
succession / great newsdaniel coopersenior editorif there's one thing that paternity leave guarantees, it's that you, and your newborn, will be spending plenty of sleepless nights in front of the tv. which gave me ample excuse to clear off my dvr, or at least make a dent in the number of things i've failed to watch. the only big things left on my queue are get out and billions, both of which i'll do my best to get around to in the next few sleepless weeks.the biggest new show to come out during my absence was succession, jesse armstrong's brilliant satire of a wealthy media family. inspired by the murdochs, but drawing material from any number of powerful media dynasties, it's the story of a civil war between logan roy and his children. well, kinda: the trailers made the show seem like it would be all boardroom battles, rather than the touching family drama it is.it's hard to love pretty much every member of the roy family, from monstrous patriarch logan through to baby child roman roy. each character is its own type of awful, and yet despite this, you can't help but pull for some of them. i won't spoil the back half of the season, but it draws upon a moment in another notable american dynasty to create a crisis you'll be surprised by.the fact that each character gets more grotesque and yet, you wind up feeling for them, is a testament to the show's writing. it helps, too, that the show has been written by the cream of britain's writing talent, including armstrong...

google provides 911 call centers with more accurate location data
google tested this system earlier this year, sending its location data straight to 911 call centers when android users called the emergency service. the system reportedly sent more accurate location data than what carriers provided and did so more quickly. google says its emergency location service is available in 15 countries and sends location data to emergency call centers for more than 140,000 calls each day.apple announced in june that it was bringing a similar service to ios users. the company said that with ios 12, it would begin sending location data to emergency call centers when its users dial 911.

fitbit leans hard into healthcare with a new enterprise offering
fitbit care has three different components to it. first, there's the health and fitness tracking through the company's devices. second, enterprise customers can use fitbit's digital tools to create personal challenges and private social groups to support and motivate members. and third, companies and organizations can provide one-on-one health coaching for members right through the app, or arrange in-person or phone meetings. this will allow companies to support members dealing with diabetes, depression and other conditions.this is all made possible through a new app called fitbit plus, which will facilitate these communications between the member and their care team. fitbit plus will also integrate health metrics such as blood pressure, medicine adherence and other data to help members easily see trends as time passes.fitbit has become increasingly active in the diagnostics and health coaching arenas over the past year. while the company is a leader in the wearables market, it has turned to health care in order to stay viable in an arena increasingly dominated by apple. humana has partnered with fitbit on its new initiative. fitbit care is now the preferred health coaching platform for the health insurance company's 5 million members.`with fitbit care we are delivering a solution that empowers people to take control of their health, by providing the accountability, support, guidance and resources that remove some of the most difficult barriers to behavior change,` said...

evernote cuts staff as user growth stalls
in a message on the evernote blog, o' neill admitted he'd set `incredibly aggressive goals` for the company in 2018. he continued: `going forward, we are streamlining certain functions, like sales, so we can continue to speed up and scale others, like product development and engineering.`the layoffs follow an exec exodus just weeks ago and the company's recent brand refresh (complete with a refined logo and wordmark). but critics are more concerned about its product, especially the free tier, which they claim lacks the perks touted by its rival google keep, with additional competition from onenote, dropbox paper and ia writer.evernote boasts 225 million registered users worldwide, but paid user growth has been `flat` for the last six months, according to an anonymous tipster who spoke to techcrunch. it all makes for a dire situation -- a far cry from the days when the company was selling socks and desk tidy stationary to a legion of satisfied customers.

spotify sued over executives' alleged gender discrimination
on top of this, perez described an overall hostile work culture, particularly from us sales head (and her boss) brian berner. he allegedly chose only men for drug-addled `boys' trips` to the sundance film festival in 2016 and 2017, excluding women who were better-qualified for the ostensibly work-oriented visits. he also purportedly scapegoated perez after getting in trouble over a buyer deal and taking free madison square garden tickets, getting her fired for conduct violations that were really his.pereze added that she'd raised concerns over the lack of anti-harassment action with spotify's human resources team before she left.in a statement, spotify claimed it doesn't tolerate discrimination `at any level` but simultaneously insisted perez's lawsuit was `without merit.` whether or not that's true, these are serious accusations that the court is unlikely to dismiss out of hand. gender discrimination and harassment are nothing new in tech companies, and perez is describing what could be a widespread toxic culture rather than just one or two rogue employees.

'pubg' could be en route to playstation 4 this year
earlier this month pubg hit version 1.0 on xbox, some nine months after it did so on pc. on paper, both platforms have reached parity, even though they're both still a little janky despite coming out of early access on steam and game preview on xbox. microsoft has been pushing pubg extremely hard as an exclusive game for the past year. from splashy ad campaigns and console bundles to attempts at viral videos, you'd be forgiven for thinking pubg was owned by the company. which likely means microsoft paid a hefty sum for it to not appear on sony's hardware. those type of deals usually have an expiration date (typically a year). that, combined with the previous statements makes this rating seem fairly plausible -- especially when the same ratings board classified fortnite on the nintendo switch prior to the official announcement.playstation doesn't have a program for playing in-development games, so the version of pubg for ps4 would have to be relatively stable right out of the gate. the developer has made a lot of noise about how it was taking fan feedback into account for future work, launching an online portal for fans to complain help with development and boasting it was on a three month sprint to fix the game. that was announced in august, which would put any potential fixes in place by november. pubg launched on xbox last december 12th, so the timeline points to a possible december release date on ps4.unlike when the game debuted on xbox last year though, it'll have s...

why are people pretending to be dead on instagram?
like with many memes, it's tough to figure out where exactly this one originated. actress dove cameron tweeted about a similar trend in 2014. `the 'comment rip on my photos to scare my friends' trend on instagram is really, very not okay,` she said at the time. `death and loss should never be disrespected.` simrin said he wasn't `really into social media` back then, but he would like to take credit for the hundreds people who are now joining in on the trend by leaving similar comments on accounts like drake's and kim kardashian's. not all of them are teenagers either. we reached out to dozens of instagram users who are doing it, including people in their 20s and 30s, but the majority of them refused to speak on the record out of fear of being judged.pranks aren't anything new, but now they have the prowess of social media behind them, where their effect be amplified by how quickly they can be seen by millions of people instantly.that's how internet challenges take on a life of their own, whether it's a viral dance of a drake song or people dumping buckets of iced water on themselves to raise awareness for als. simrin may think his prank is funny, or innocent, but it's hard to imagine his friends or family feeling the same way. imagine if he were your son or brother and, without any context, you went to his instagram page and saw a bunch of people telling him to rest in peace. you would likely panic immediately.`my parents and my little sister have no idea thi...

telegram's move to swift on ios promises a more battery-friendly app
founder pavel durov said on his telegram channel that the swift version looks the same as the current app, but it's sleeker, faster and more battery efficient. he noted that the telegram team is `putting some finishing touches on it,` though it's pretty much ready to make the switch for all of its ios users. a completely new codebase could mean there are some bugs or glitches, though durov claims telegram will quickly fix them.both versions of telegram are currently available in the app store, though it's not clear how the move will impact those who use ios 6, which doesn't support swift (telegram is currently available on ios 6). as of earlier this month, just five percent of iphone and ipad users were using software earlier than ios 10, while one data company estimates 0.03 percent of devices are running ios 6. so, telegram appears to have determined any impact on those with ios 6 devices is worth the tradeoff as it improves the app for the vast majority of its ios users.it's not certain if or when telegram will replace the core android app with the x version. android distribution is much more fragmented than on ios, with over a fifth of devices still running android marshmallow, which was released in 2015 and last updated in october 2017.

lyft concierge lets businesses schedule flexible rides
lyft's concierge service, which opened up to all businesses earlier this year, lets companies and organizations hail rides for their customers, patients and employees. while it lets those businesses offer an additional service, it's not always clear exactly when a passenger will need a ride. that's why lyft concierge is introducing flexible scheduling, which will let passengers use their scheduled ride when they're ready for it. lyft notes that this new feature will be useful for passengers hit with unexpected delays, like lost baggage at an airport or a long doctor's appointment.

programmable 'skins' turn any household object into a robot
researchers in rebecca kramer-bottoglio's lab placed sensors and actuators onto elastic sheet. once the sheets are put onto an object -- for example, a stuffed animal -- the robotic skin can animate it. the sensors and actuators can then be programmed to perform different tasks based on the object in question and how the sheets have been put on it. additionally, adding multiple sheets can increase or change functionality. the findings were published today in the journal science robotics.`we can take the skins and wrap them around one object to perform a task -- locomotion, for example -- and then take them off and put them on a different object to perform a different task, such as grasping and moving an object,` kramer-bottoglio said in a release. `we can then take those same skins off that object and put them on a shirt to make an active wearable device.` the video below demonstrates how these skins can be used.they key here is that these aren't single-purpose devices. the portability of these robotic skins, as well as the ability to program them to do different things, means that you can turn pretty much any object into a robot. that makes for a wide application of uses, without the huge investment necessary to create such a robot from scratch. these may be far from ready for commercial use, but they definitely hold promise in terms of what we can do with robotics in the future.

greyhound joins the modern era with e-tickets on iphones
intercity bus service greyhound might not be the quickest way of getting around, but purchasing tickets is at least a bit faster now thanks to the new (and arguably well overdue) e-ticketing feature on its ios app. passengers can buy tickets directly through the app, then simply flash their device at the driver as they board the bus. every aspect of a trip can be managed through the app, including check-in, updates and live departure times, plus member rewards. and if you're about to get on a long bus journey, chances are your phone's already juiced up, so you needn't worry about misplacing your info -- unlike android users, who still have to wait for their update.

alibaba will build its own ai chip to support self-driving cars
china's government has been pushing to raise the standard of its home-produced chips -- particularly for use within the transport and healthcare sector -- in a bid to raise its profile as a leading tech innovator, but also to avoid over-reliance on us imports, which are continually under jeopardy due to ongoing trade tensions. back in june, for example, president donald trump levied a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion worth of chinese goods.

'angry birds' makes its magic leap debut
angry birds fps: first person slingshot was designed in collaboration with resolution games to play well in augmented reality. instead of swiping from left to right to fling your birds on a touchscreen, you'll be holding the slingshot in your hand and shooting your avian friends in a three-dimensional environment from a first-person perspective, set in the real world.i had the chance to try this out at a brief demo in a san francisco hotel suite. rovio's developers already had the game set up, where the pigs and their structures were positioned in the center of a coffee table in the room. i wore the magic leap headset -- there's no support for glasses yet, unfortunately -- with the accompanying lightpack (which houses all of the computing power) in my pocket and the wand controller in my hand. as my colleague devindra hardawar has already commented, the ar environment on the magic leap is surprisingly sharp, and though the field-of-view could be bigger, it's far taller and wider than that of hololens.in my demo, the game was set up on a table, but sami ronkainen, rovio's creative director, explained you could also have it set up on the floor. having it set up on a table is a bit more fun, however, because as the birds fly off and the buildings crumble, the bricks and debris tumble off the table on to the ground below. tommy palm, ceo and founder of resolution games, said you could even set the stage to bounce the bird off a wall or a chair to increase your chances at mak...

loupedeck's photo-editing console now works for videos
you can program several luts and switch between them, for instance, so you can quickly alter the colors in your videos. other features include flexible timeline navigation, content trimming and clip adjustment, as well as the ability to import or export personal loupedeck configuration setups. the company says it's rolling out additional video software integrations later this year, so you might eventually be able to use the device with programs other than premiere pro.loupedeck chief mikko kesti said in a statement:`our mission is to keep on improving the editing workflow, so it's only fitting our next step is in the video editing space. just like we developed the loupedeck+ exclusively from community feedback, we felt it was imperative to listen to what our users had to say and make the device's functionality even more well-rounded, providing all the same editing functions that photographers have at their fingertips to videographers. users can now count on loupedeck+'s intuitive design and user-friendly approach to enhance their video editing quality and increase their output. our ongoing partnership with adobe made introducing these new capabilities with its premiere pro cc suite an easy decision.`

at&t will power airstream rvs' smart controls and mobile internet
you'll also be able to use the internet even if you're a ways away from the city, since the connection allows you to link up to 10 phones, tablets and other wifi devices at once. if you're not fully going off-the-grid, you can use that connection to video call friends and family, check your email or stream shows and movies... so long as there's coverage and it can live up to the carrier's promise. at&t is offering two types of plans for airstream rvs. the first one is probably good enough if you only take your trailer out on the weekends or every now and then. it gives you access to 5gb of data for $25, though auto-renews every 30 days if you don't cancel it. the second option, which will set you back $360 for one year of unlimited data, is probably the better choice if you're off to conquer the great outdoors for months at a time.
