Clubhouse voice chat leads a wave of spontaneous social apps

Forget the calendar invite. Just jump into a conversation. That’s the idea powering a fresh batch of social startups poised to take advantage of our cleared schedules amidst quarantine. But they could also change the way we work and socialize long after COVID-19 by bringing the free-flowing, ad-hoc communication of parties and open office plans online. While “Live” has become synonymous with performative streaming, these new apps instead spread the limelight across several users as well as the t...

After 8 Years of Remote-Access Trojans Attacks, Can We Still Say Linux is Secure?

Remember when BlackBerry reported Advanced Persistent Threat groups have been infiltrating critical Linux servers for at least eight years? What's the lesson to be learned? LinuxSecurity Founder Dave Wreski argues "Although it may be easy to blame the rise in attacks targeting Linux in recent years on security vulnerabilities in the operating system as a whole, this is simply not the truth. The majority of exploits on Linux systems can be attributed to misconfigured servers and poor administrat...

2020 Toyota C-HR Review: How Does It Stack Up & Should You Buy It?

2020 Toyota C-HR In Our Opinion: The 2020 C-HR is built on Toyota's New Global Architecture (TNGA) C-platform. The ride is smooth and the handling is crisp, but the amount of engine noise inside may turn buyers off. The C-HR looks sharp on the outside, but drivers may feel like they are paying the price when dealing with blind spots. While there are redeeming qualities, the 2020 Toyota C-HR is probably not our first choice in a segment ripe with options. Exterior Styling 93 ...

ICANN Delays .Org Sale After Scathing Letter from California's Attorney General

The decision comes after ICANN received a blizzard of letters from people opposed to the transaction, including California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

2020 Lexus UX Review: Just How Good Is This “Urban Explorer?”

2020 Lexus UX In Our Opinion: The 2020 Lexus UX is a luxurious small crossover with a nice array of standard features. It's ideal for city driving and is easy to park. Connectivity is a strong point too, as the UX has a number of apps built-in, like Spotify and Waze. Cargo space should be enough for the daily drive, but if you carry larger items on a regular basis, the UX may not fit your needs. Exterior Styling 81 Interior Layout 82 Driving Dynamics 90 ...
