A Gmail scammer tried to impersonate a four-star US Army general to catfish a married woman

Gmail users posing as US Army Gen. Paul Nakasone, chief of US Cyber Command chief the National Security Agency, sent flirty messages to women, according to a CyberScoop report. The actual Nakasone is married with children, a family that he affectionately calls "Team Nakasone." Catfishing attempts from people posing as US military service members are not unheard of, but it is still unusual for someone to impersonate a four-star general still in the military. When CyberScoop and the woman confro...

iMazing handles all the file management dirty work on your iPhone or iPad

Ever since the days of the Apple II and the Macintosh, if you used Apple products, you knew the score. Apple has their own way of doing things — and as a user, you either get on board with their proprietary exclusivity...or you go find a new device. Even today, handling simple operations like backing up files, moving media, or just saving text messages usually have to go through other Apple apps like iTunes, an unnecessary extra step in our click-and-drag world. Assuming you’re not looking ...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Wall Street Journal: Bob Wachter, the chairman of the department of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, has had a front-row seat to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kevin Rose on health apps, crypto, and how founders get through this time with their sanity intact

Kevin Rose has been in the spotlight since cofounding the early social news aggregation site Digg in late 2004. A genial whiz kid turned serial entrepreneur, he has since become as well-known for launching a whole lot of slickly designed products, some of them out of his startup incubator Milk (later acquired by Google), and North, an incubator that would later lead him to a site for watch enthusiasts called Hodinkee in New York. Along the way, Rose has been investing, at times as an angel, f...

NASA’s ‘Artemis Accords’ set forth new and old rules for outer space cooperation

NASA’s plan to return to the Moon is ambitious enough on its own, but the agency is aiming to modernize international cooperation in space in the process. Today it published a summary of the “Artemis Accords,” a new set of voluntary guidelines that partner nations and organizations are invited to join to advance the cause of exploration and industry globally. Having no national affiliation or sovereignty of its own, space is by definition lawless. So these are not so much space laws as shared...

A new team-up between Amazon and Red Hat may prove that IBM is no longer out to compete with the leading Amazon Web Services cloud (AMZN, IBM)

On Thursday, Red Hat and Amazon Web Services announced an extended partnership that makes it easier for customers to use and pay for Red Hat's popular Kubernetes-based service on Amazon's cloud. This is one of the first major moves under IBM's new CEO Arvind Krishna, but Red Hat says that it's another sign of its independence from Big Blue — IBM itself didn't drive the collaboration. IBM has its own cloud service, but Red Hat's Kubernetes service also now runs on AWS and Microsoft Azure. Visit...

Cities Are Meant to Stop Traffic

I recently came across this quote from Kirkpatrick Sale’s 1980 book Human Scale and it succinctly relates a fundamental truth about the purpose of cities. Cities are meant to stop traffic. That is their point. That is why they are there. That is why traders put outposts there, merchants put shops there, hoteliers erected inns there. That is why factories locate there, why warehouses, assembly plants and distribution centers are established there. That is why people settle and cultural instituti...
