VW’s Porsche Being Probed For Software Manipulation Regarding Emissions

Germany is looking into whether Volkswagen’s (VW) sportscar brand Porsche used software to disguise exhaust emissions, the country’s car industry regulator said on Thursday, in a fresh blow to VW’s attempts to move on from a 15 month-old scandal. Germany’s Motor Transport Authority, KBA, said it was examining software that can measure the angle of a car’s steering wheel. At stake is whether Porsche used software to detect whether its cars were being subjected to laboratory...

Google Data Centers Push For 100% Renewable Energy Usage In 2017

Google announced that it will be able to power all of its global data centers and corporate offices from 100% renewable energy in 2017, a goal the company has been working toward for years. Back in 2010 Google began signing long-term contracts to purchase renewable energy directly from solar and wind farm suppliers. The company’s first contract was to purchase all the electricity from a 114-megawatt (MW) wind farm in Iowa. Last year, Google purchased another 842MW of renewable energy, nearly...

Will Facebook Get Acquired By Evil Google?

The word on the information street is that Google wants to buy Facebook. It is entirely speculative, but could have legs. Information leaked suggests that talks are well advanced between the two companies. Anecdotal evidence from many Facebook users suggests that talks are well advanced and the companies are already sharing experimental data, between themselves, of user data. Other sources suggest that Microsoft (Vole) is also interested in Facebook and, conversely, that Facebook is interested in...

Jobs’ Mob arrived on the scene expecting car makers to fall over themselves to make Apple their partner. It made a list of demands about the way it was going to turn out and the car makers just laughed. As a result, Apple appeared to...

Will The TeraHertz Band Help Increase Wi-Fi Speeds

Will The TeraHertz Band Help Increase Wi-Fi Speeds

Researchers have worked out a way to push Wi-Fi speeds to 34 Gbps using the TeraHertz band. While greater bandwidth in the 300GHz and above band has been known for a while it is pointless because the range makes it a chocolate teapot. Some researchers have managed to hit 100 Gbps but when it only works for a few centimetres it is not commercially viable. Now boffins at the Tokyo Institute of Technology have got the technology to provide a great 34 Gbps speed with a decent range. Naoto Oshimo, one...

Mozilla has reported that revenue for 2015 was up 28% over the year before, the biggest increase in three years.

‘Distributed Guessing’ Hacking Turns Focus To Credit Card Numbers

‘Distributed Guessing’ Hacking Turns Focus To Credit Card Numbers

Credit card fraud has been added to the list of things that distributed processing can hasten. An e-commerce site will typically block a credit card number after 10 or 20 failed attempts to enter the corresponding expiry date and CVV (card verification value), making life difficult for fraudsters who don’t have a full set of credentials. But there are plenty of e-commerce sites out there, and it’s possible to obtain missing account details by submitting slightly different payment requests...

Astronomers Solve Galaxy Mystery

A decades-old galactic mystery has just been solved — new research has revealed why a distant galaxy has brightened and dimmed like a flickering candle flame over the last 30 years.  The galaxy, known as Markarian 1018, is considered an “active galaxy,” meaning it has an extremely bright core called an “active galactic nucleus” (AGN). Even though AGNs take up a relatively small fraction of space, the light from some of them can outshine the light from all the stars in their...
