"We've already had some indications of that," said James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, according to AP.But the revelation is not totally surprising: The Chinese government reportedly hacked both Obama and McCain in 2008, and hackers tried repeatedly to break into the campaign accounts of Obama and Romney in 2012.The Romney campaign was "under constant attack," Digital Director Zac Moffatt told Time Magazine."Four or five times a week."According to CNN, Clapper said both the FBI and DHS were working to educate the campaigns about cyber threats.Hackers working for foreign governments can gain valuable insight into a presidential candidate's mindset before they take office, or uncover private communications that might give their country a leg up in diplomatic negotiations.In 2008, for example, a letter Sen. John McCain sent to the president of Taiwan was intercepted by hackers from China.And on the flip side, the US government does much the same thing to many world leaders, as the massive leaks out of the National Security Agency from former contractor Edward Snowden have demonstrated.The Clinton and Trump campaigns did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Read the original article on Tech Insider.More from Tech Insider:12 of history's greatest philosophers reveal the secret to happinessThe nation's top spy says hackers are spying on presidential candidatesThis wearable exoskeleton could one day turn your grandparents into cyborgsA new trailer for the 'Ghostbusters' reboot is here and it's much better than the firstSunday s 'Game of Thrones' director was surprised by fan reactions to this brief character interactionNOW WATCH: Hackers showed us how easy it is to secretly clone a security badgeLoading video...

I got to go on a one-day workshop with renowned lecturers who work with some of today's most exciting areas of technology: artificial intelligence, quantum computers, blockkedjeteknik, 3d printers, synthetic biology and virtual reality. Here are some examples, which I had with me: Quantum computers, which have been hot for a wider public since Time Magazine put it on the cover of two years ago, is expected to have a breakthrough in the financial sector. There are huge amounts of data and adequate risk-prone capital to invest in an unlimited global computing power, predicted Andrew Fursman, president and founder of 1Qbit, also referring to Google's breakthrough just before Christmas, when sökjätten told of their quantum computer working 100 million times faster than a standard pC. The high-profile block chain technology behind crypto currencies like Bitcoin, is expected to have a major impact far beyond the financial sector. We all need to be inspired and broaden our horizons sometimes. The boss may even choose to hang on.
The data stolen includes e-mail addresses, user names and passwords for accounts created prior to June 11, 2013 on the old Myspace platform, according to a statement.The breach doesn't affect any Time information or financial data, the New York-based publisher said.In a blog posting Tuesday, the social-networking site said it believes the breach is attributed to Russian cyber-hacker "Peace.""This same individual is responsible for other recent criminal attacks such as those on LinkedIn and Tumblr, and has claimed on the paid hacker search engine LeakedSource that the data is from a past breach," the company wrote in the post.In February, Time bought Viant Technology, the owner of Myspace, to get more data to help sell targeted advertising.In a recent earnings call, Time Chief Executive Officer Joe Ripp called the deal "game-changing for us."
As Steve Friess recently highlighted in a piece for Time Magazine, in our digital era - one group — is left out of the conversation .Friess a hearing impaired, prominent journalist and self-proclaimed Apple fanboy writes of his frustration at being left out in the cold during product launches or news coverage by tech giants or major news corporations who all lack live captioning on their streams.In developing countries they are often excluded from basic schooling, suffer from higher unemployment rates and are at best destined for low grade manual work.Even in First World nations they leave school with lower qualifications in comparison to others with similar aptitudes, abilities and social background.The idea for Captionism was born from a hack4good hackathon in London where we were proud to win first place.Our social impact mission is to help hearing impaired to improve their prospects and counter the impact of not having equal access to conventional education.

The only Pebble model left without a reason to celebrate was the Pebble Time Round, but not anymore.Right now, you can pledge for a new polished gold or silver style.These limited edition Pebble Time Round options are high in fashion, but low in quantity.Move over, Apple Watch?In February, Pebble Time owners on AT gained a special power in the form of iOS voice-to-text functionality.Sure, Android owners have long been able to use voice input to handle such a task, but Pebble s Time has slowly, but surely morphed into the most capable smartwatch, aside from the Apple Watch, available to iPhone users.
Good news, Adele fans: her latest album 25 is available to stream on Spotify as of today.YouTube is being targeted by the music industry too: musicians including Paul McCartney and Lady Gaga are petitioning the US government to receive a fairer share of the proceeds from illegal uploads of their songs to the site all those homemade road trip movies with a Coldplay backing track, for example .Crossing the streams"I know that streaming music is the future, but it's not the only way to consume music," Adele told Time magazine last year."I can't pledge allegiance to something that I don't know how I feel about yet."It remains to be seen how Spotify, Apple Music and other services can keep attracting the big names - the idea of keeping major album releases for paying customers has been mooted, while Beyoncé's Lemonade was briefly available as an exclusive on Tidal.Everything we know about the new Nintendo NX console:
Money can indeed buy happiness, but that doesn t mean money is everything.Researchers at UCLA and the Wharton School wanted to study this further and see how time affected the results.conducted a series of experiments and surveys on over 4,400 subjects.Although the majority of people chose more money, choosing more time was associated with greater happiness—even controlling for existing levels of available time and money.Additional studies and experiments provide insight into choosers underlying rationale and the causal direction of the effect.Reporter Christopher Ingraham explains emphasis ours In other words, could happiness be less a function of wanting time, and more a function of having money?
"He added: "Quite frankly, I hadn't even gone to the MySpace website before we bought the company, but after going there, it's a pretty good website, and music is pretty interesting."Time Inc. — which owns more than 90 media brands including Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and Fortune — wasn't buying MySpace in order to resurrect the social network.We basically reach 80% of the adults anyone is trying to reach with the permissions that we have to reach them and track them and follow them, so MySpace has really been all about permissions."Time Inc. "the magazine company" was a "destructive definition"Acquisitions like Viant are helping Time Inc. shake off its dusty magazine publisher image.Ripp said: "In the past, Time Inc. had limited the size and scale of its audiences because we were defined as 'the magazine company' and that, in part, was a very destructive definition because it limited ourselves primarily to print."Time Inc. published around 40,000 videos this year and new mobile units that are "much more engaging and a lot more fun," in a bid to break away from the swathe "annoying" advertising that consumers are increasingly blocking.No material negative impact from ad blocking so farRipp said Time Inc. hasn't seen a negative impact from ad blocking so far, but that it is using technology to detect how much of its audience have ad blockers switched on.I was a CFO, I know what value is and I know how to calculate it.
People often derisively compared electric cars to golf carts until Tesla Motors proved EVs could be swift and sexy.We Drive an All-Electric Ferrari, the Car that Shouldn t ExistI am a skip button.We Drive an All-Electric Ferrari, the Car that Shouldn t ExistFerrari boss Sergio Marchionne is on record as saying an electric Ferrari is an obscene concept, but that didn t stop a group of guys in California from turning the 308 GT into an EV.When your car is already so exclusive that prospective customers must apply to buy one, apparently there is just one way of making it even more desirable: Make an even crazier version for exactly one person.
Pokemon Go has become nothing short of a global phenomenon.It has practically saved Nintendo from financial meltdown and given over 30 million people a reason to get lost in the park.Not everybody sees the mobile game as a positive force for good though, film director Oliver Stone for example sees it as something far far more sinister.According to Time magazine the director said: It s not funny.What s happening is a new level of invasion.The American reportedly voiced concerns over the game as he promoted his new movie about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden at Comic Con International.
If you re working two and three jobs or constantly busy, saving money isn t always easy.If you have to choose, focus your time on the biggest gains for your time.As Time Magazine points out in its finance column, most efforts to save money require time.It takes time to cook at home instead of eating fast food.It takes time to call your utility companies to lower your bills.If you re running short on time, pick the efforts to reduce your expenses that will give you the most benefit in the least amount of time.
New reports claim TEB is a Ponzi scheme run by a 'shady company'.The Chinese state-owned media that trumpeted the TEB-1 just a couple of months ago have now turned on its inventors, saying they are backed by an online Ponzi schemeChinese state media is reporting that the futuristic road-straddling bus invention that glides 2m above the road so cars can pass beneath it is in fact an elaborate scam aimed at conning investors, and will likely never come to fruition.The concept has existed since at least 2010, when Time Magazine called it one of the year's top inventions, but no one was seriously thinking about it as a solution to traffic problems until inventor Song Youzhou showcased a small moving toy model of the TEB at the China Beijing International High-Tech Expo on 22 May.The huge amount of interest generated prompted TEB Technology Development Company, where Song is the chief engineer, to speed up plans to build an actual working prototype and conduct tests of the vehicle in Qinhuangdao city in Hebei province in northeast China, and on 2 August, the first test drive was announced.State media reported that a prototype vehicle, TEB-1, with a 7.7m-wide test carriage holding up to 300 passengers was being tested in the Beidaihe District of Qinhuangdao, and TEB held a media event where state and international media such as Reuters were given a guided tour of the whole vehicle.

Apple's iPhone announcement events are an annual celebration of America's most profitable company.They've become a sort of tech tradition in the past few years, with an expectation of a mid-September event with a new iPhone launching soon after.Such is the case with the iPhone 7.Each year, that tradition feels a bit more staid, a bit more forced.But this year, Apple had a secret up its sleeve that was even more exciting than a new iPhone:For years people have speculated about if and when Nintendo's most iconic game character would head to Apple's ubiquitous devices; for so many years, in fact, that people have stopped wondering.Nintendo's made plain over and over that a move to mobile could mean the devaluing of its extremely valuable intellectual properties: Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, and other gaming classics.Nintendo is basically the Disney of video games."In the digital world, content has the tendency to lose value, and especially on smart devices, we recognize that it is challenging to maintain the value of our content," late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata told Time Magazine in 2015."It is because of this recognition that we have maintained our careful stance."That was a softening of the company's previous stance.
Last week I explained how Excel uses its own, unique system of serial numbers to calculate dates and times.That piece covered nine Date & Time functions: NETWORKDAYS , DATEVALUE , NOW , DAY , MONTH , YEAR , HOUR , MINUTE , SECOND , plus the basic SUM function for adding and subtracting start dates and end dates.This week I ll explain how to use seven more Date & Time functions: DATE , DAYS , DAYS360 , TODAY , TIME , TIMEVALUE , and WEEKDAY .Notice the Formula result in the bottom left corner of this dialog also shown at center right .In the End Date field box, enter the day, month, and year of the end date inside double quotes; e.g., 5/29/2016 using slashes or dashes.Or just move your cursor to A7 and type: DAYS A4, A5 .
Inside, the atmosphere is buzzing - right now, the Dane is the closest the discipline has to a rock star.Its oft-quoted principles, include "BIGamy" that buildings should have hybrid functions, such as a waste-to-energy power-plant topped with a ski slope, under construction in Copenhagen , and "hedonistic sustainability" that for green design to succeed, it must be more desirable than the status quo , have made him a popular conference speaker.BIG's design, which Ingels calls "the unzipped wall", consists of 1,802 extruded fibreglass bricks.As his architect mentor and former employer Rem Koolhaas wrote in Time magazine: "Bjarke is the first major architect who disconnected the profession completely from angst."He follows the advice of his friend, Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: "He just says 'yes', does it, moves on."I think a really strong critical dialogue is actually enjoyable because it allows you to sharpen your points," he says, Does he ever feel vulnerable?
As we romp further into this silly and messy political season it s come to light that Palmer Luckey, creator of the Oculus Rift and the boy who was last seen floating in a tropical paradise on the cover of time magazine, was the money man behind a group of Trump supporters calling themselves Nimble America.They dedicated the non-profit to proving that shitposting is powerful and meme magic is real and their primary goals were or are to disrupt online conversations and create funny pictures of Hillary Clinton.But what is shitposting and why would anyone think they could use it to sway public policy?To go further down the rathole, thread jacking is exactly what it sounds like – taking over a thread with your friends – and circle jerking is the process of creating earnest yet ridiculous posts aimed at confusing everyone involved.This is similar to the Russian dezinformatsiya or disinformation, a previously analog form of propaganda technique that now involves aiming an army of trolls at sites to press a certain viewpoint and mute all others.Grassroots shitposting efforts usually cost nothing but time and dignity.
