Defective camera spoils photos
The iPhone 6 Plus is a band of endless problems. For trouble with the bent housing and faulty memory modules causing the device to hang, it has just arrived. This time the users of this unlucky smartphone are complaining about a faulty camera, causing the photos and videos to be terribly blurry.
Introduced a few weeks ago to sell iPhone 6 Plus, was supposed to be a rival for Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Meanwhile, the media continues to report further problems related to this device. The problem of bent housing has been resolved by structural modifications, but there is still a problem with corrupted memory, which, in the case of devices with hundreds of applications installed, causes hardware hangs and other troubles.
As if that was not enough, users are complaining about another case that is about a faulty main office. Apparently, the optical image stabilizer module, which was supposed to be the biggest advantage of the iPhone 6 Plus, is significantly damaged, and the picture quality and video quality are greatly improved. Meanwhile, as shown in the video below, the quality of the recorded video leaves a lot to be desired, and similarly the pictures go out.
New microprocessor for microprocessors
The miniaturization of electronic devices entails the need for adequate power supply to enable them to function. University of Illinois engineers have designed an exceptionally small battery that can power individual microprocessors, independent of external power.
The battery was created using 3D printing, namely holographic 3D lithography and 2D photolithography. The new technique provides greater control over the structure of the electrodes, making it easier to match the battery to the specific application. The new invention has a thickness of only 10 μm and provides a voltage of 0.5 mA sufficient to supply the LED.
Microchips can have many different uses, primarily in the Internet of Things hardware, but not only. It can be used in electronic refrigerators, light switches that communicate with each other by radio or even car keys.
Cams offers sessions with your friends’ twins
Facial recognition algorithms, once known for science fiction, are increasingly used in the real world today. The latest service has just offered a service for live broadcasts for adults.
At least several major face recognition software projects are currently being developed. This technology can be used to secure devices such as smartphones, computers, or access to specific rooms. Law enforcement agencies have for years been interested in, and have not tested the ability of people looking for street monitoring to date.
This is only the most obvious tip of the iceberg of this technology. And with the latest idea comes adult service, allowing one internet user to broadcast an image from their own cameras and mediate in donations from viewers.
It offers the service of finding people on webcams as similar to the one shown on the photo sent by the user.
You will need to provide the email address where you will be sent the results, and the service authorities will ensure that the uploaded photos are removed after 24 hours.
It may be argued that the feature will attract more “lovers without reciprocity”, stalkers, or sensational sensations of looking for doubles known to the public.
The service does not specify which facial recognition system to use, but I say that you should not expect too good results. Ultimately, the purpose of the whole action is simply to advertise the site.
They will spend 8 months in simulating a Martian expedition
The University of Hawaii has begun another mission to simulate an alien planet. Six specialists will be locked up in a special habitat where they will spend another eight months.
NASA has been preparing for a manned mission to Mars for several years, but before this mission is completed, much research is needed. One of its key aspects is the multi-month loneliness of astronauts. Therefore, before they go to a foreign planet, you need to see how long the isolation will affect their behavior.
This is done by experiments in Hawaii that are ideal for simulating the conditions of Mars. Specially selected special closes in habitats for many months, performing the same tasks that will wait them in a foreign world.
Soon another kind of experiment will be launched, which will be implemented in Mauna Loa. Six scientists from the United States and Europe will be closed for eight months. Isolated from society, will investigate their behavior.
The experiment is part of the mission HI-SEAS Mission V, which aims to better understand people’s reactions to prolonged isolation. Crew perform a variety of tasks and support life support systems. There will be eleven different studies to complete, and the collected data will help NASA prepare for a true mission.
Of course, the whole mission will be continually monitored, and to make the experiment more realistic, there will be a 20 minute delay in communication that simulates the distance that divides Mars from our planet.
Security and lock will not prevent you from getting to know your contacts and photos
If you already have the latest version of iOS on your iPhone, you should make sure your Siri voice assistant turns off when the screen is locked. Otherwise, everyone will be able to view your contacts and photos without worrying about security or fingerprints.
A simple way to circumvent Apple’s system security has been described and presented in the movie Jose Rodriguez, known for discovering many security vulnerabilities in the past. This time, it turns out you do not need to know the four-digit screen lock code, or worry about fingerprint protection – running voice assistant will “let” us into the system itself.
Just enter the wrong code several times, and when the system threatens us with a complete lock ask Siri to open the clock application, from which we will go to the address book application, and from there to the photo gallery. The trick though is not to give access to the whole system – which would be particularly dangerous – but still allows you to browse contacts from your address book and your phone’s photo library.

A jet fighter that could affect the fate of World War II
In more than 100 years of aviation history, several innovations were real milestones that totally changed the image of aviation. One such example is without doubt introducing a jet engine. Messerschmitt Me 262 was the first combat aircraft used in this type of propulsion. A machine to help Hitler win World War II.
The early beginnings of jet technology
Contrary to popular opinion, jet engines were created relatively soon after the first Wright brothers plane crashed into the air. The first type of construction that can be classified as a full fledged jet engine is the work of English builder Sir Frank Whittle. In 1930 he designed and patented the first jet engine, initially designated as WU, and then W.1. This extremely simple from today’s perspective, the design with centrifugal compressor for its first flight onboard the Gloster E.28 / 39 jet had to wait more than 10 years. Faster, as already in August 1939, his first flight was made German experimental aircraft Heinkel He 178. It became the first jet aircraft in the world. Thus the German engineers overrun their English rivals. And real development of this type of construction was supposed to come only in times of World War II.
Messerschmitt Me-262 – how was the first mass-produced jet fighter of the world?
The experience gained during the design and flight study of He 178 was later added to the design of the Messerschmitt Me 262. Conceptual work on this plane began in 1938. The first hull pattern was presented a year later. After obtaining approval of the authorities of the Third Reich, the construction and testing of the first flight was commenced. The delay in the parallel-to-air engines of the Me-262 resulted in the Messerschmitt’s self-propelled fleets having flown with a 700 hp piston-type engine. Only jet engines powered by jet engines had to wait until July 1942. Junkers engines with the designation Jumo 004 were compliant with this version (previously the BMW gas turbines were abandoned due to their serious failure).
This innovative design still needed nearly a year to be fully ready for mass production. During this time, it was tested and tested on the fly. This process lasted for an additional six months, when unexpectedly Hitler ordered a change of concept and the fighter-bomber Me-262 was to become a bomber. This pointless time-saving decision by the German criminal had made this jet-set wonderfully enter the war arena much later.
And in order to have a few problems, after a few months of trial runs, another problem appeared. Fighting on several fronts of the Third Reich was struggling with the lack of certain strategic materials that hit other, more prominent targets. Here are heat resistant and heat resistant feet with tungsten, chromium or molybdenum. It was necessary to replace them with other less durable materials from which turbines and combustion chambers were built. This, in turn, resulted in numerous engine failures, which again shifted into Me 262.
What was the first mass-produced jet to stand out against other WWII fighter jets?
The jet engine made it possible to achieve immense speeds. Although the Me 262 cruise speed was estimated at 835 km / h, tests have shown that it can handle up to 900 km / h.
At these speeds began to appear the sound effects that aviation engineers learned to fight only after the war. For comparison, the P-51 Mustang, regarded by many as the best fighter of the World War II, flew at a speed of about 700 km / h.
The enormous thrust was not only the speed, but also the load. This aircraft could carry up to four heavy mortars of MK 108 caliber 30 mm, including 24 unmanned R4M air-to-air missiles. In some versions, there was also the possibility of transferring 500 kg of bomb load or additional installation of the bow of the 50 mm bow. It’s all about a “reasonable” range of about 1000 km. There is also a ceiling (ranging from 11.5 to 12 km). These three characteristics: speed, weight and ceiling made the Me 262 a perfect fit for the attacker’s surprise bomber team.
How did Me-262 terrorized the American bombers?
For Hitler’s baptism, Hitler’s miraculous jet had to wait until 1944. The first victim of this unusual machine was the British reconnaissance aircraft de Havilland Mosquito. Later it was only “better”. Literature says that until the end of the war, Me 262 pilots recorded between 700 and even a thousand shootings with the loss of just 100 machines in direct combat. This gives an impressive indicator of about 8-9 shots per plane. This is largely due to the huge flight speed, high lifting capacity (which translates to more parcels and ammunition) and high ceilings. These features have often been used to attack groups of bombers flying in strong escorts. The Allied pilots, unaware of the technical capabilities of the Me 262, were in every way subjected to the power of the flying wonders of German technology. The only noticeable advantage of American and English machines was the much greater maneuverability, which in the immediate clash afforded any chance of survival. The Messerschmitt Me-262, due to the high speed of flight, the shape of the fuselage and the distribution of masses was very heavy in flight and difficult to maneuver.
The most modern fighter of the Second World War could have changed a lot, but it came too late
So what made this machine not contribute to the victory of the weakening Third Reich? Reasons were at least a few. Among them can be distinguished … the bad decisions of Adolf Hitler himself. This had a vision in which the Me-262 would be an incredibly fast bomber blowing the defenseless cities of the Allies. Constructing an almost ready-made fighter consumed valuable time, which the country faced in the impending defeat, simply did not. It was only after some time that the concept of a fast fighter attacking a group of bombers came back.
The exploitation of new types of engines has also proved to be embarrassing. The imperfections of the German material technology of the time meant that Me-262 engines used materials that could not cope with the extreme conditions of the jet engine. These are mainly the components of combustion chambers and turbines, where the temperature was above 1700 degrees Celsius. This resulted in numerous deformations of the elements rotating at enormous speeds. Me-262 engines withstand from 25 to 50 hours of operation. After that time, they were usually replaced or refurbished.
The development of the Me 262 fleet has also stopped Allied raids. It was assumed that in the holiday 1945 Messerschmitta plants would be able to produce a whopping 1000 aircraft per month. Reality was quite different. The Allies, in the course of their raids, carefully selected targets, so often bombs fell on the Me 262 production sites. Effective production rates ranged from a dozen to several dozens of machines per month. The original production plans have destroyed the end of the war and the fall of the Third Reich.
A major problem was the lack of kerosene. The last 1.5 years of the war is the constant struggle of the Germans to keep fuel supplies. The first generations of jet propulsion consumed enormous amounts of fuel, and up to two engines were used for the Me 262. So huge quantities of raw material were needed for exploitation, which was very little.
Chinese hackers have stolen confidential US anti-missile data
Data on US missile defense systems have been stolen by Chinese hackers – the Washington Post reported Tuesday. In Australia, the media report similar cyberattacks. Stolen data is important for the security of both countries.
Cyberslides have managed to steal secret construction plans or their elements, America’s most technologically advanced US missile defense systems Patriot PAC-3, THAAD, or Aegis, according to the Pentagon’s expert report, citing “WP”.
Data on F-35 and F / A-18 fighter jets, the V-22 Osprey multi-purpose vertical launch and landing aircraft, and the Black Hawk helicopter were also stolen, the Washington daily said.
Experts warn that such data obtained by Chinese intelligence can give you a colossal strategic advantage and at the same time undermine the US military superiority in the event of armed conflict.
High-ranking Pentagon officers who commented anonymously report that the acquisition of anti-missile defense data is part of Beijing’s extensive and intensified spying on not only American military structures but also Pentecostal civilian companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman – writes “WP”. The newspaper adds that none of the companies commented on the report, stating that some of the information was stolen from their computer systems.
Hackers treat private companies working for the Pentagon as a weak link in the security system. “In many cases, these companies do not know they have been attacked by hackers until the FBI has knocked on their doors,” he said in a high-profile Washington Post interview.
In Australia ABC television reported Monday that Chinese hackers have stolen confidential plans to build a future Australian intelligence headquarters. On Tuesday the authorities refused to comment on this information, but they were not denied.
As explained by ABC’s cyber-security expert Des Ball, the acquisition of future intelligence headquarters plans, including details such as computer network information, makes the building exceptionally vulnerable to cyber-bullying or spy surveillance.
VirnetX wants Apple to make more money
Apple has been involved in patent infringement lawsuits against companies for years, but it is not itself against the use of technology owned by various companies. One company that has long struggled in court with US corporations is VirnetX, which is asking for millions more from it.
VirnetX has been filing with Apple since 2011, accusing the company of illegally using many of its technologies and is not groundless as it draws hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation from Cupertino. In 2012, Apple paid $ 368 million for patents related to VPN technology, and this year, VirnetX received $ 625 million in damages for infringing patents related to FaceTime technology.
These gigantic compensation apparently are not enough for the VirnetX boss, because the company is again demanding money from Apple. This time, the amount of claims is $ 190 million, and the case applies to FaceTime and iMessages.
The next process can be extremely painful for Apple, as VirnetX claims not only damages, but also the prohibition of using products that use conflicting technologies. If the court agrees, this will mean that Apple will be forced to give up its two flagship products that have been used in every US device.
