Judging by reports of the issue, it seems to have started only in the last 24 hours or so. Again, this isn't affecting all iPhones, only those on T-Mobile as of now.

NSA, GCHQ attacked popular anti-virus software, says leak

NSA, GCHQ attacked popular anti-virus software, says leak

Here's another one for the spy books. To the surprise of perhaps no one, the NSA, along with their British counterparts, the GCHQ, have been revealed to have targeted, hacked, and compromised the very companies whose jobs it was to protect users from hacking and attacks, like, say, from criminals. This is the latest round of scandals coming from the ever-flowing Snowden leaks. Perhaps most worrying is the fact that this so called Project CAMBERDADA targeted not government or corporate security software, but the ones that most of us use on our PCs.

Google AI creates dreamy images from artificial neural networks

Google AI creates dreamy images from artificial neural networks

Artificial neural networks (ANN) are the driving force behind speech recognition and image classification. ANN process images, isolating the definitive essence of an image from background noise. It's one method that Google's image search uses to tell the difference between similar images, like forks and knives. The networks need to learn that forks have tines to differentiate them from knives. Google uses these networks to manage the vast array of images that flow through its database, and it is always tweaking the mathematical models to create more precise image identification. The result of the latest experiments in ANN parameters is a batch of images that are downright trippy

California releases data on accidents involving self-driving cars

California have given in to pressure and released data on self-driving car accidents that have happened. We've heard reports here and there in recent times, and this data drop largely reflects what we've been hearing. According to the report, which details six accidents involving self-driving cars, in most of these accidents the autonomous vehicles were in a self-driving mode, but the accidents were caused by other (human driven) cars. It doesn't appear there were any injuries of either driver in the incidents, indicating they were all minor.

New security technology allows emoji for passwords

New security technology allows emoji for passwords

Imagine instead of having to type four digits as a security PIN, you could just type the sunglasses smiley, blue heart, top hat, and thumbs up emoji? Well, new security software from the UK's Intelligent Environments could soon allow just that. The company says they have developed a system that would allow symbols, namely emoji, to be used instead of numbers in a PIN code. This makes PINs easier to remember, but, even better, data shows they can actually be more secure than just digits.

HTC might be getting a lot of flak lately over it's dismal performance and its disappointing flagship, but one can't fault the OEM for lack of trying.

Apple Music ads hit the right notes for artists and fans

OnePlus One price change hopefully heralds something new

OnePlus One price change hopefully heralds something new

Last year's flagship killer just got a killer price cut. That is, if you're willing to live with 2013 or 2014 high end specs. OnePlus One, which took the Android market by surprise, has just announced another price change, but this one promised to be for good. Or at least until the next permanent price cut. It is now $50 cheaper than it was yesterday. But if you pay the original $349 price for the 64 GB model, you also get a year's subscription of Dropbox Premium.
