THE hypocrisy is breathtaking. But it looks as if the Trump administration really is going after WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, the self-styled transparency campaigner who runs it from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has been holed up for five years evading extradition to Sweden to face a rape allegation. As a candidate, Donald Trump said he loved WikiLeaks for helping his campaign by publishing embarrassing e-mails from the Democratic National Committee, hacked by the Russians. Now he is in the White House, he views leaks less indulgently. On April 20th the attorney-general, Jeff Sessions, declared that the arrest of Mr Assange had become “a priority”. He added: “We are going to step up our efforts, and are already stepping up our efforts, on all leaks.” The Department of Justice is said to be preparing charges against Mr Assange. In a speech made a few days before Mr Sessions’s announcement, the director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, excoriated WikiLeaks as “a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia”.

Assange concluded “the world cannot afford, and the Constitution does not permit, a muzzle placed on the work that transparency organizations do to inform the American and global public.” Assange’s editorial largely focused on Pompeo’s speech, skimming over the recent statements by Attorney General Sessions and President Trump. But Session’s comments reveal that leaks of classified information in general are not necessarily as problematic as leaks published specifically by WikiLeaks. We are going to step up our effort and already are stepping up our efforts on all leaks, Sessions said at a news conference last Thursday. This is a matter that's gone beyond anything I'm aware of. We have professionals that have been in the security business of the United States for many years that are shocked by the number of leaks and some of them are quite serious, he added.

If we had to guess, wed say June or July, specifically maybe June 8. The Moto E3 was announced in July 2016, but its rumored that the Moto Z2 will land on June 8, and its possible that Lenovo (which now owns Motorola) will announce the Moto E4 alongside it. Moto E4 design and screen Hottest leaks: A metal back 5.0-inch and 5.5-inch 720p screens An exhaustive specs leak from WinFuture suggests that both the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus will have a metal back like the Moto G5, in place of the plastic on the Moto E3. It adds that they will have a fingerprint scanner on the front, likely built into a home button below the screen, and that the Moto E4 will come in at 144.7 x 72.3 x 8.99mm and 151g, while the Moto E4 Plus is 155 x 72.3 x 9.55mm and 198g. That would make the standard Moto E4 ever so slightly larger in all dimensions than the Moto E3, as well as being slightly heavier.

But investigations into all but the largest spills are rare, and there appear to be no penalties for misreporting the actual size of the damage. According to the March LBB report, one of the most egregious under-estimators is Taylor Energy, a now-defunct offshore drilling company responsible for a leak off the coast of Louisiana that began in 2004. Though the company has ceased operating, the leak continues and Skytruth estimates the actual volume to be about 232,850 gallons, or about 178 times larger than the 1,300 gallons Taylor Energy reported in 2016. The company says nothing more can be done to stem the leak, which regulators warn could last for more than a century if left unchecked , and has sued the federal government to recover money placed in a leak response trust. Both Amos and Rolfes stress the powerful cumulative effect on the environment of these leaks, no matter the size or duration.

The other notable thing in the schematic is a large circle, which Geskin posits could be a wireless charging pad though its not clear whether his source said as much or thats just speculation on his part. But wireless charging has been a heavily rumored iPhone 8 feature. As with any leak wed take this schematic with a pinch of salt, and all the more so because Geskin isnt one of the big names in leaks, but he claims to have 95% confidence in his source, so we wouldnt write it off either.

Another alleged iPhone 8 schematic is making the rounds today, shared on Twitter by several "leakers" who often share alleged leaked device images sourced from Weibo and unnamed tipsters. KK Leaks , OnLeaks , and Benjamin Geskin have all tweeted the image, which comes from an unknown source. It is not clear if the schematic is legitimate, and we're at the point in the rumor cycle where it's difficult to separate what's real from what's fake, so it's best to view all current leaks with some skepticism. This is a tipped leak what means I cant confirm if legit or not but there you have it... #iPhone8 pic.twitter.com/6OgASNUDNb OnLeaks (@OnLeaks) April 26, 2017 The schematic appears to depict the rear shell of the OLED iPhone 8, and it matches many previously-leaked design schematics and rumors. The device pictured features a vertical dual-lens rear camera with an LED flash in the middle, and it includes a large circular area, perhaps for some kind of wireless charging functionality.

Michael Grothaus 26/04/2017 - 12:14pm Heres hoping the Mac gets some love at WWDC 2017. This is my wishlist for macOS 10.13 Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference is just over a month away. It used to be WWDC was just a conference for developers, yet in recent years it's become a media and fandom event. That’s because, though Apple doesnt unveil any new iOS devices at the event, they always show off the first previews of their next major software releases. This year’s WWDC is sure to showcase iOS 11, which is always the main OS Apple shows off at the event. Yet for many Mac diehards, the most exciting thing about WWDC is the chance of a glimpse at the next version of macOS, Apple’s desktop operating system. Surprisingly for being this close to the event there’s been a complete lack of leaks and rumors surrounding the next release of macOS.

With the OnePlus 4 (or OnePlus 5, as it might be called ) possibly launching as soon as June or July were expecting leaks and rumors around the phone to start ramping up, and todays leaked render could be the start of that flood. Obtained by people who have seen the phone and have possibly worked on the OnePlus 5 and shared by India Today , a freshly leaked image seemingly shows the back of the next OnePlus handset, complete with a dual-lens camera. Early rumors have already talked of a dual-lens camera, complete with augmented reality and mixed reality functions, and with other phones like the LG G6 and Huawei P10 sporting dual-lens snappers the presence of one on the OnePlus 4 wouldnt come as a surprise. Back in black The image also shows a plain black back with no visible antenna lines. That could mean its using glass on the back, as has also been rumored, as antenna lines wouldnt be necessary on a glass back.

The seven intelligence staffers handling the investigation now, King said, “are professional staff people who have worked on other kinds of projects, but I don't think we have anyone who specifically has a background in prosecution and investigation.” Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) said he was “concerned that it’s not moving along fast enough.” “I think it is making progress, but I think there need to be more resources, more staffing to be able to get someplace in a reasonable timeframe,” Heinrich told reporters. The Democrat who’s been most vocal about his concerns is Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, who said Tuesday he’s “been clear for some time with the bipartisan leadership of the committee that we've got to pick up the pace.” “We've got to pick up the pace because people are getting most of their information now from leaks and false tweets and from the story of the day,” Wyden said.

The LG G6 was recently unleashed onto the world, but weve already started thinking about its successor, the LG G7. What will it look like, whatll be inside, and will LG finally cut it out with the region-specific features? Let us get started. Below, youll find the developing story of the G7 as we know it through rumors, leaks and confirmed news. And of course, weve added our own two cents as to how we hope next years flagship comes together. Cut to the chase What is it? LGs 2018 flagship smartphone When is it out? Spring 2018, most likely How much will it cost? Like the G6, the G7 will be around $729 (about 568, AU$967) LG G7 release date and price The LG G7 launch date is likely to happen at MWC 2018, so were likely to see it on or around Sunday, February 25, 2018. Thats our best guess based on the fact that both the LG G6 and LG G5 were launched at MWC.

The University of Michigan backdoor is not a counter but an analog charge pump. Every time its input is toggled, a small amount of charge is stored on the capacitor formed by the gate of a transistor, and eventually its voltage reaches a logic level such that an attack circuit can be triggered. They attached it to the divide-by-zero flag line of an OR1200 open-source processor , from which they could easily trigger it by repeatedly dividing by zero. The beauty of this circuit is both that it uses very few components so can hide more easily, and that the charge leaks away with time so it can not persist in a state likely to be accidentally triggered. The best hardware hacks are those that are simple, novel, and push a device into doing something it would not otherwise have done. This one has all that, for which we take our hats off to the Michigan team.

The plastic back is nicely textured in an austere matte gray which feels nice to touch. Looking outside of the ZTE umbrella, the design harkens back to the Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 , with a large 6-inch display that feels unwieldy in one hand. This is a phone youll need to use two hands with. On the front of the phone youll find the 5MP front facing camera, and capacitive touch buttons at the bottom. The home button doubles as notification light with a pleasing white glow. ZTE thoughtfully allows users to swap the back and multitasking buttons in the settings if you prefer Samsungs reversed orientation. On the rear youll find the Max XLs 13MP rear camera, LED flash, fingerprint sensor and rear-firing speaker. The speaker sounds pretty bad and is in the worst position possible on the phone as its easily covered up by your hand and any sound that leaks out is pumped away from you.
