Short story: The Green Gears

Sometimes she pictured small computer screens inside each leaf, code scrolling through them like a bad movie’s idea of what hacking looks like.She knew it was plain chemistry—changes in molecules, rearrangements of the same universal atoms—but it was also software that continuously adjusted plant physiology to internal and external conditions, even “downloading upgrades” from artificial viruses raining each night from drones like an invisible kabbalah - a highly structured prayer against hunger ...

Jaron Lanier Thinks Things May Have Gotten Better, or Facebook 'Might Have Won Already'

Jaron Lanier helped design "Together" mode for Microsoft Teams, "where he has a post as an in-house seer of sorts," according to a recent profile in GQ. ("Initially he'd conceived of Together mode as a way to help Stephen Colbert — in whose house band Lanier sometimes performs when he's in New York — figure out how to host his show in front of a remote audience...") But Lanier also "might be the last moral man in Silicon Valley," they write, delving into both his support for universal basic inc...

How to Differentiate Your Company’s Model

Beating out your competitor for a big deal requires creating more value for your client, especially when your price is higher. One of the most effective ways to clarify that value is by teaching your client the difference between your model and your competitor’s model. The Starting Line For models to matter, you first must provide a consultative approach, one that creates the client’s preference to choose the conversation that benefits them more than conversations they’ve had— or will have— wi...

Epic Games Asks Court to Allow Fortnite Back on the App Store

Just a week after Apple terminated Epic Games' developer account, Epic has filed for a preliminary injunction that would both allow Fortnite back on the App Store and restore access to its developer account. In the filing, Epic Games says it was willing to challenge Apple "because it was the right thing to do" and "it was better positioned than many other companies to weather the storm."

How a White-Hat Hacker Once Gained Control of Tesla's Entire Fleet

"A few years ago, a hacker managed to exploit vulnerabilities in Tesla's servers to gain access and control over the automaker's entire fleet," remembers Electrek (in a story shared by long-time Slashdot reader AmiMoJo). Tesla enthusiast Jason Hughes had already received a $5,000 bug bounty for reporting a vulnerability, but "knowing that their network wasn't the most secure, to say the least, he decided to go hunting for more bug bounties." After some poking around, he managed to find a bunch...

Who Committed the 25-Year, $8 Million Library Heist?

An anonymous reader shares a fascinating true-crime story from Pittsburgh. Smithsonian magazine reports: Like nuclear power plants and sensitive computer networks, the safest rare book collections are protected by what is known as "defense in depth" — a series of small, overlapping measures designed to thwart a thief who might be able to overcome a single deterrent. The Oliver Room, home to the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's rare books and archives, was something close to the platonic ideal of...

Major League Baseball Games are Experiencing 'Drone Delays'

CBS Sports reports: Wednesday's game between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays was stopped in the bottom of the first because of a "drone delay." After the second base umpire pointed to something in the sky and motioned for teams to leave the field, the cameras picked up an identifiable flying object hovering over the field during the game. CBS reports it's the third drone delay experienced by Major League Baseball this year: The first came in a Twins-Pirates game in early August, and ...

On the 25th anniversary of Java, Oracle's director of developer content released a list of the 25 greatest Java apps ever written. This week they shared the responses it got.

Mathematicians Finally Answer 2,000-Year-Old Question About Dodecahedrons

NCamero (Slashdot reader #35,481) brings some news from the world of 12-sided dodecahedrons: Quanta magazine reports that a trio of mathematicians has resolved one of the most basic questions about the dodecahedron. The cube, tetrahedron, octahedron and icosahedron cannot have a straight path you could take [starting from a corner] that would eventually return you to your starting point without passing through any of the other corners. The dodecahedron can. Mathematicians studied dodecahedro...

What are geofence warrants?

Zachary McCoy went for a bike ride on a Friday in March 2019. The avid biker would do loops around his Gainesville, Fla., neighborhood and track his rides with a fitness app on his Android phone. McCoy didn’t think anything unusual had happened that day. But months later, in January of this year, McCoy got an email from Google saying that his data was going to be released to local police. He’d become a potential suspect in a local burglary—and had no idea why. “There was absolutely nothing that ...

mmWave vs. Sub-6GHz 5G iPhones: What's the Difference?

All of the iPhones in Apple's iPhone 12 lineup will have Qualcomm modems that support 5G, but potential buyers need to know that not all 5G networks are equal. There's the super fast mmWave (millimeter wave) 5G and the slower but more widespread Sub-6GHz 5G. There have been mixed rumors about which ‌iPhone 12‌ models will support which 5G spectrums, but it appears that the fastest 5G technology could be limited to the higher-end ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro models, or even just the 6.7-inch version.

At Disrupt, YC’s Anu Hariharan, Initialized’s Garry Tan, and GGV’s Hans Tung will tell you how to raise money in a dumpster fire

As this pandemically perverse year draws to a close, there’s one thing that’s certain. Everything has changed — at least a little bit. The U.S. is still grappling with a virus that it has yet to control and a vaccine, once it’s discovered and proven to be effective will take months to be distributed throughout the population. That means the virtual, socially distanced reality that has become the new normal will remain that way for at least a little bit longer. But what does that mean for startup...

Apple opens up — slightly — on Hong Kong’s national security law

After Beijing unilaterally imposed a new national security law on Hong Kong on July 1, many saw the move as an effort by Beijing to crack down on dissent and protests in the semi-autonomous region. Soon after, a number of tech giants — including Microsoft, Twitter and Google — said they would stop processing requests for user data from Hong Kong authorities, fearing that the requested data could end up in the hands of Beijing. But Apple was noticeably absent from the list. Instead, Apple said...

'Ultra-Processed' Junk Food Linked to Advanced Aging at Cellular Level, Study Finds

Science Alert reports: People who eat a lot of industrially processed junk food are more likely to exhibit a change in their chromosomes linked to aging, according to research presented Tuesday at an online medical conference. Three or more servings of so-called "ultra-processed food" per day doubled the odds that strands of DNA and proteins called telomeres, found on the end of chromosomes, would be shorter compared to people who rarely consumed such foods, scientists reported at the European a...
