OPPO Watch curved screen mystery unraveling: Who made this?

Today new imagery leaked of the unreleased (and still largely unrevealed) OPPO Watch. This watch was first leaked with imagery that looked a whole lot like an Apple Watch.

Today Firefox launched DoH encryption by default: Why it matters

Today in the USA, Mozilla updated Firefox for security and privacy purposes. They did this with DNS over HTTPS (DoH), a system which encrypts the interactions between computers and servers when they connect via the Internet. Because of the way insecure DNS works, "lookups" of servers done by your computer when connected to the internet are vulnerable to malicious agents. DoH stops all that business.

Google on new Huawei phones: don’t sideload Google Play apps

Google on new Huawei phones: don’t sideload Google Play apps

It has been almost a year since Huawei came under the US government's ban hammer, effectively barred from doing business or making new acquisitions from most US companies. Over the course of the months, some of its partners, like Microsoft, have either voiced support for the embattled Chinese giant while others, like ARM, have found ways to circumvent the rather encompassing but still US-only directive.
