Labourpartiet har utsatts för en cyberattack, rapporterar tv-kanalen Sky News.Attacken ska ha riktats mot flera av partiets digitala plattformar men hindrats av interna säkerhetssystem, enligt en talesperson för partiet.Enligt Sky News rör det sig om en så kallad DDOS-attack, som går ut på att överbelasta en hemsida eller ett system genom att styra stora mängder trafik till det.Attacken har enligt talespersonen anmälts till den brittiska myndigheten för cybersäkerhet.Vem eller vilka som ligger bakom attacken är inte känt.Partiledaren Jeremy Corbyn beskriver den som mycket allvarlig och han hoppas att den inte är ett tecken på vad som väntar i valrörelsen, enligt Reuters.

With the Galaxy S11, Samsung could have made the choice to do without the hole in the screen for the benefit of a camera like some models on the Galaxy A-line.But, it seems that the pierced screen will be well and truly return.According to the Ice Universe leaker, it is now certain that the Galaxy S11 screen will have a hole placed in the top center as on the Note 10.Another interesting detail, the hole would also be much thinner and discreet than on the current models.This is the Galaxy S11 rendering I made, based on the leaked information, don't take it seriously, it's just my imaginary.The Galaxy S10 is the first Samsung model to introduce an Infinity-O display with an asymmetrically placed hole in the upper right corner.

SpaceX’s goal has long been to achieve truly reusable rocket launch capabilities, and for good reason: The company anticipates huge cost savings through re-usable rocketry versus expendable launch vehicles, which SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has described as a process akin to an airline throwing away their passenger aircraft every time they complete a flight.They’ve made lots of progress toward that goal, and now frequently re-fly parts of their Falcon 9 rockets and their Dragon cargo capsules — but the Starship spaceship they’re building now should be even more re-usable.Musk provided an idea of just how much that could save SpaceX — and by extension, its customers — at a surprise guest appearance at the U.S. Air Force’s annual pitch day in LA this week.Speaking with USAF Lieutenant General John Thompson at the event (via Space.com), Musk said that fuel costs for the Starship should be around $900,000 per launch, and that once you factor in operational costs, it’ll probably add up to around $2 million per use.That’s “much less than even a tiny rocket,” Musk added, explaining why he views it as “imperative” that this launch system needs to be made.Starship is designed from the ground up to provide high payload cargo capacity, and, when paired with SpaceX’s Super Heavy booster (also in development), as well as in-orbit refueling, it’ll also offer the ability to transport large quantities of goods and satellites to lunar orbit — and eventually beyond, to Mars, too.

The latest film set in J.K. Rowling’s literary landscape will take place in Brazil – and revolve around a character we barely got a glimpse of in part two.Deadline reports that Fantastic Beasts 3, to be directed by Harry Potter veteran David Yates (who also helmed the previous two Fantastic Beasts films) and co-written by Rowling and Potter regular Steve Kloves, will begin filming in spring 2020.Notably, this will be the first Fantastic Beasts entry where Rowling has shared scriptwriting duties.While the cast that starred in 2016's entertaining Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and 2018's deflating Crimes of Grindelwald will be back – Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp (sigh), Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, and Katherine Waterston – the story will have an elevated role for Jessica Williams (Booksmart, The Daily Show), who plays “Professor Eulalie ‘Lally’ Hicks, a teacher at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the American equivalent of Hogwarts.”So how does an American teacher find her way to Brazil, considering Deadline lets us know that the film will be set in Rio de Janeiro?Presumably, magic has a lot to do with it; here’s hoping Rowling’s history of fumbling around when it comes to depicting other cultures won’t repeat itself here.

I går lanserades Airpods Pro, och Ifixit har redan satt tänderna i den med en grundlig isärplockning.Vanliga Airpods, både första och andra generationen, fick 0 av 10 i reparerbarhetsbetyg av Ifixit, och Airpods Pro är lika omöjliga att fixa.Däremot fick isärplockarna sig en överraskning redan efter att ha öppnat lurarna.Istället för ett långsmalt batteri i ”pinnen” har Apple fått plats med en knappcell i den bulliga kroppen på hörluren.Det går dock fortfarande inte att byta ut den när den börjar dö eftersom den är fastlödd och omgärdas av lim.En liten zif-kabel skickar signaler mellan chippet i bakre delen av hörluren och batteriet och högtalarelementet i främre delen.

Facebook today announced it has filed suit in California against a domain registrar OnlineNIC and its proxy service ID Shield for registering domain names that pretend to be associated with Facebook, like www-facebook-login.com or facebook-mails.com, for example.Facebook says these domains are intentionally designed to mislead and confuse end users, who believe they’re interacting with Facebook.While some who register such domains hope to eventually sell them back to Facebook at a marked up price, earning a profit, others have worse intentions.And with the launch of Facebook’s own cryptocurrency, Libra, a number of new domain cybersquatters have emerged.Facebook was recently able to take down some of these, like facebooktoken.org and ico-facebook.org, one of which had already started collecting personal information from visitors by falsely touting a Facebook ICO.The suit alleges that the registered domains, like hackingfacebook.net, are being used for malicious activity, including “phishing and hosting websites that purported to sell hacking tools.”

UBC Sauder's Markus Baldauf says a tiny tweak to how certain trades happen could make for more efficient stock markets, and it's already being adopted by major players.Stock market traders have always relied on speed to gain competitive advantage, but over the past 10 to 15 years, the development of high frequency trading technology has changed the game -- to the point where investors can make fortunes by buying and selling in minuscule increments of time.But researchers at the UBC Sauder School of Business and at Kellogg School of Management are proposing a key fix: a virtual speed bump.Liquidity happens when transaction costs are small -- so if I buy something and sell it immediately afterwards, how much money do I lose?To test the impacts of high frequency trading on these market measures, Baldauf applied a mathematical model that looked at liquidity as well as informativeness of prices -- that is, how much information security prices reflect about fundamentals.But at the same time, arbitrage traders race to hit the original quotes at the stale prices.

The recent WeWork IPO debacle is only the latest in a string of initial public offerings that have failed to deliver the desired result for their parent companies.Namely Peloton, Uber, Lyft, Sunnova, and SmileDirectClub, all of which have seen their stock prices drop relative to their debut, should be worried that deep staff cuts and a rocky future could follow.With WeWork, issues related to the company’s internal controls became apparent from the time the company first filed its S-1 documentation.This caused the company’s valuation to plunge from an estimated $47 billion in January to as little as $10 billion after the S-1 was filed.Many of the issues facing tech startups stem from differences in how private and public companies are affected by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.And because internal control policies can affect the bottom line, many companies neglect this area to focus on profitability.

The underlying technology could one day transform industries from aviation to smart wearables.One line of their research focuses on electrothermal actuators (ETAs), devices made of specialized polymers that can be programmed to physically respond to electrical or thermal changes.For example, an ETA could be programmed to mimic muscle reflexes, tensing up when cold and relaxing when hot.They believe these could one day replace the bulky and metal-plated bots found in manufacturing industries."Right now, the robots you'll find in industry are heavy, solid and caged off from workers on the factory floor, because they pose safety hazards," explains Naguib."But the manufacturing industry is modernizing to meet demand.

In the UK, a new chocolate bar contains a blockchain-based token, either to be directly gifted to the cocoa farmer or redeemed for a discount on the next purchase, Fast Company reports.Sure, it’s chocolate, but The Other Bar pitches itself as a social experiment, too.In partnership with the United Nations Development Programme, Amsterdam’s FairChain Foundation has promised to back each token with funds that would’ve otherwise gone towards marketing.The idea is to turn products into “engines of change” by giving consumers a chance to participate in the system themselves, rather than blindly trust NGOs to do the right thing in places where it’s needed the most.This will hopefully inspire other companies to redirect their marketing budgets towards social impact and prove its effectiveness as a business model – all while giving a fair deal to Ecuadorian cocoa farmers.“If we can show that this proof of impact drives customer loyalty, and marketing spend given to consumers turns into impact, then we can reach out to all these large companies that now spend millions on Kim Kardashian and say, ‘Don’t spend your marketing on these famous faces, spend your marketing dollars on your own crowd, your own customers, and let them invest in impact,” FairChain founder Guido van Staveren told Fast Company.

Much maligned at the time of release for looking a little boring, the iPhone 8 could be making a triumphant return as the iPhone SE 2, according to esteemed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.What’s more, the return of the cheapest iPhone line could also be with us as early as the first quarter of 2020.If this sounds a little familiar, it’s because it’s the exact same news that was reported by Asian newspaper Nikkei a month ago.Kuo’s predictions add more fuel to that particular fire, and add that the iPhone SE 2 would most likely be equipped with Apple’s latest A13 processor, 3GB of RAM, and will most likely start at 32GB of storage.Aside from those changes, the design of the phone would be identical to the iPhone 8, and would include a 4.7-inch display, complete with a Touch ID home button.With this in mind, it seems pretty obvious Apple intends the iPhone SE 2 to take over the iPhone 8’s place in the market.

In a strange turn of events, both Ericsson and Nokia have made announcements claiming to be the primary partner for the efforts of Japanese telcos to drive towards 5G.Looking at the Ericsson announcement first, the Swedes are claiming to be the primary 5G vendor with the first commercial live 5G services to be available from March 2020.As part of the agreement, Ericsson will supply KDDI with Radio Access Network equipment, including products and solutions from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio.There might be a bit of nuanced language here, though it would certainly be unusual to have more than one primary.If more than one company is being granted the title of “primary”, in our opinion, it undermines the concept entirely.“As an end-to-end supplier of multiple technologies to KDDI, we look forward to transforming the network and launching 5G for consumers and industries.”

Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have developed new guidelines for fabricating nanoscale gel materials, or nanogels, that can deliver numerous therapeutic treatments to treat cancer in a precise manner.In addition to enabling the delivery of drugs in response to tumors, their nanogels can target malignant cells (or biomarkers), degrade into nontoxic components and execute multiple clinical functions.The most important characteristic of the engineering researchers' nanogels is their ability to be chemically modified or "decorated" with many bioactive molecules.These modifications give the decorated nanogels more diverse physical and chemical properties than any other existing technique, despite their identical origin.Such systems, which have the potential of being tailored to specific diseases or even individual patients, could be a useful tool for oncologists in the future.Following a series of chemical modifications, the nanogels are capable of performing the following simultaneously or in sequence: loading and releasing drugs, responding to unique pH environments, identifying biomarkers, converting light into therapeutic heating and exhibiting degradation characteristics.

The 2020 iPhone could go back to its iPhone 4 days and bring back the metal frame, MacRumors reported Wednesday, citing an analyst note by Ming-Chi Kuo.The design of the next iPhone will change "significantly," the Apple analyst reportedly said.The iPhone 2020's metal frame could come with "a more complex segmentation design, new trenching and injection molding procedures, and sapphire or glass cover assembly to protect the trench injection molding structure," the research note reportedly said."The metal frame and the front and rear 2/2.5D glass are still used, but the metal frame surface will be changed to a similar design to the iPhone 4, replacing the current surface design."The analyst note comes hot on the heels of Apple's unveiling of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.The iPhone 11 has an aluminum band, while the iPhone 11 Pro has a stainless steel structural band.
