Download The Subtle Art of not Giving A F*ck Free

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. “F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.” In his wildly popular Internet blog, Mason doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Kaspersky Lab to transfer its’ customer data to Zurich by 2019

The transfer of core processes, including software assembly and threat detection updates, will be supervised by an independent third party.

After facing a US ban, Russia-based Kaspersky Lab on Thursday announced to move its core customer data storage and processing processes for most regions to Zurich, Switzerland, by 2019 — at a time when the European Union (EU) gets ready to introduce a new data privacy law.

The transfer of core processes, including software assembly and threat detection updates, will be supervised by an independent third party, also based in Switzerland, Kaspersky said in a statement.

“By the end of 2019, Kaspersky Lab will have established a data center in Zurich and in this facility will store and process all information for users in Europe, North America, Singapore, Australia, Japan and South Korea, with more countries to follow,” the cyber-security firm said.

How to use Google Lens

Google came out with a new version of Google Lens in beta, the company announced at its annual developer conference on Tuesday. If you have one of the ten additional Android devices that are getting Google Lens inside their native camera apps, you’ll be able to access the feature simply by going into your camera and seeing the icon on the bottom right.

Tapping on the icon activates the Google Lens feature and you’ll be able to point your smartphone camera at objects and different sights to identify more information about them. Google Lens is also getting a real-time finder that will analyze what your camera sees even before you tap on the display. The tool will process the pixels through machine learning to provide more details and also provide relevant search tags.

WHICH DEVICES ARE GETTING GOOGLE LENS?

Initially, it was just the Google Pixel 1 and Google Pixel 2 that had access to Lens. Now, as part of the latest update to Google Lens, the feature is coming to ten additional Android devices inside their native camera apps.

So far Google has only revealed the manufacturers of those ten devices: LG, Motorola, Xiaomi, Sony Mobile, HMD/Nokia, Transsion, TCL, OnePlus, BQ, and Asus. We’ve reached out to Google to find out which specifically which devices will receive Google Lens.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS GOOGLE LENS CAN IDENTIFY?

Google Lens can identify clothes, books, buildings, plants, animals, and works of art. It’ll be able to pull relevant shopping results for clothes it snaps, titles of books, more information about landmarks, and details about paintings. It can also tell you what species and classification is an animal or plant.

Additionally, Lens will soon be able to play a music video if you point your camera at a poster of a musician. It can display movie times when you’re outside of a theater. And through the new smart text selection feature, it can save the contact information from a business card, and add an event to your calendar from a flyer or billboard.

There’s also a crossover between Google Lens and Maps this time around, which will add AR to Street View and help you navigate in real time.

Fortnite is coming to Android this summer.!!

Epic Games’ massively popular battle royale game Fortnite is coming to Android phones this summer, the company announced in a developer blog post this morning. The post, titled “The State of Mobile,” broke down a number of new features the game’s mobile team has been working on. Those include a customizable HUD, which launched earlier this week, and a new voice chat function exclusively for mobile.

“We know that communication is key when you’re squadding up for that Victory Royale, so we’re working to bring voice chat to mobile. On top of that, you’ll be able to chat with your teammates regardless of platform,” the blog post reads. Epic is also working on strong opt-in options and muting features to make sure voice chat is not abused. “We’re also looking to make it really easy to mute yourself, other players, or open up all communications with a simple tap. There will be a button on the screen that lets you mute yourself, mute everyone in your party, or go back to open-microphone.”

In addition to an Android release this summer and voice chat sometime in the foreseeable future, Epic is also working on gameplay features like firing and auto-run, improving performance and introducing a battery-saving mode, and making sure players on mobile can access in-game statistics.

Fortnite has been available on iOS since the middle of March, where it’s rocketed to the top of the App Store’s free charts. Mobile analytics firm Sensor Tower estimated the company made $15 million in in-app purchases in the first three weeks it was live on the App Store. That means an Android launch may drastically increase the game’s revenue-generating potential.

Google is making an AR headset with new Qualcomm chips

Google is reportedly working on a standalone augmented reality headset that will use new Qualcomm chips. It will be built by Taiwanese computer maker Quanta. The project is still in its early stages, according to documents obtained by WinFuture.

The AR headset is supposed to be similar to Microsoft’s HoloLens, a headset that came out in 2016 and is aimed at design, training, and industrial use. The Google AR headset that’s in development will reportedly be self-contained and powered by a Qualcomm chip, rather than tethered to another device. It will also include cameras and microphones. The headset is currently going by the name “Google A65.” There’s no release date yet for the Google A65 as it’s still in the prototype stage, according to WinFuture.

The headset won’t only operate like a HoloLens, but it will use the same chips. HoloLens is rumored to be getting an update this year, with a new ARM-powered design and an improved field of view. The Qualcomm chips that will reportedly be used in both the new HoloLens and the new Google headset are the Qualcomm QSC603 four-core chips, based on ARM architecture.

Google already produces an augmented reality headset called Google Glass, which was released to some criticism in 2013, and it received a new enterprise version last year. The Google Glass is basically a smart heads-up display and camera, though, while HoloLens-style headsets support what’s sometimes called “mixed reality,” with objects that appear to be part of the world, not just overlaid onto it.

Intel Discontinues Its Remote Keyboard App for Android, iOS Due to Vulnerabilities

Intel has decided to kill the Intel Remote Keyboard app for Android and iOS devices in order to protect user devices from three vulnerabilities – one of which was classified as “critical”. The chip maker has also issued a Product Discontinuation notice to recommend users to uninstall the app from their devices. The app was notably launched by the company in 2015 to let users wirelessly control their Intel NUC (next unit of computing) and Intel Compute Stick computers and transform their smartphones or tablets into a virtual keyboard and mouse.

As per the security advisory dated April 3, all versions of the Intel Remote Keyboard app have been spotted with three distinct vulnerabilities. Two of the vulnerabilities, listed as CVE-2018-3645 and CVE-2018-3638, have received a severity score of “high”, while the other one, titled CVE-2018-3645, has been listed as “critical”. The critical issue essentially allows a local attacker to inject keystrokes into another remote keyboard session. Importantly, three different security researchers discovered the flaws that ultimately convinced Intel to remove the Remote Keyboard app from Google Play and Apple App Store.

“Intel has issued a Product Discontinuation notice for Intel Remote Keyboard and recommends that users of the Intel Remote Keyboard uninstall it at their earliest convenience,” the company noted in the security advisory.

The Intel Remote Keyboard app had emerged as a vital app for Intel NUC and Compute Stick. The app offered keyboard and mouse access directly through a smartphone or tablet and included features such as PC key support, custom keyboard capabilities, Windows 10 gesture controls, and multi-language support.

According to a cached version of its Google Play listing, the Intel Remote Keyboard app had over 500,000 installations and an average rating of 3.8 out of 5.0. The app received its last update in last June. The cached version was initially spotted by folks at Bleeping Computer.

How Hackers Look Like and What They Think?

Nearly all hackers completed college or reached that level by self-education. Self-educated hackers are more respected in hacker’s community because that person is really interested in hacking and he passed a lot of things that are not teached in schools and college.

The most common things hackers do is computers electrical engineering, physics, mathematics, linguistics and philosophy. However, like every developer is not the hacker, hackers do not always have the skills of programming, but someone of them have the skill.

Clothing styles: Hackers dress simply, casually: jeans, T-shirt and shoes. T-shirts are usually with some humorous slogans. By 1990, they were distributed T-shirts with computer imagery, but as the hacker culture eventually developed their own symbols, today there are T-shirts with pictures of Penguin (trademark Linux) or daemon (BSD). A small number of hackers prefers hiking boots. Hackers care more about comfort, practicality and ease of maintenance of clothes. They hate business suits.

OTHER INTERESTS: Hobbies that hackers do are widespread. Mostly they like science fiction, music, medievalism, chess, war games and intellectual games of all types, logical puzzles and other areas that are closely related to hacking or that include linguistics and acting.

Hackers prefer cats than dogs. (It is widely believed that cats have the hacker nature). A large number of hackers always forgot to wash a car. They prefer rich modern Porsche or RX-7s, but they forget to wash. All hackers have terrible handwriting.

Annoyed by stupid people, don’t like to listen soft music, or to watch television, except for cartoons and science fiction films. They hate lies, incompetence and boredom.

ACTIVITY AND SPORT: The largest number of hackers are generally not engaged in physical activities. Among those who practice them, interest in the sport is not big. Avoid team sports. Hacker sports are always individual, including concentration and ability: cycling, auto racing, skating, sailing, hiking, gliding … Just to mention, HaCoder team play soccer and freestyle football, but don’t like to watch it on TV.

Most hackers use the coffee and / or sugar or soda (Coke) to stay awake all night during the hacking.
