How do you pick up a malicious online virus, the kind of malware that snoops on your data and taps your bank account? Often, it's through simple things you do each day without thinking twice. James Lyne reminds us that it's not only the NSA that's watching us, but ever-more-sophisticated cybercriminals, who exploit both weak code and trusting human nature.
What do 24,000 ideas look like? Ecologist Eric Berlow and physicist Sean Gourley apply algorithms to the entire archive of TED Talks, taking us on a stimulating visual tour to show how ideas connect globally.
Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, Microsoft's new Surface Pro 2 tablet has a built-in kickstand, and can be used flat on a table, or in someone's lap. It also has a 75 percent improvement in battery life.
On Friday, Senator Al Franken asked Apple for more clarity on privacy and security concerns he has with its use of fingerprint recognition technology in the new iPhone 5S. Franken said that the fingerprint system could be potentially disastrous for users if someone does eventually hack it.
This week on WDD’s HotSpot, brought to you by National Instruments, a low voltage, miniature TCXO; a satellite with the mission to clean up space; EnerSys Buys Purcell Systems for $115M; and resistive switching devices.
Device certification is complex for OEMs, because carriers differ in requirements and processes to deploy devices on their respective networks. It is hard to predict development costs, schedule/predict time-to-market, and navigate certification processes. And, re-branding an already-certified product is costly.
It’s Friday!!!!! And in this episode of Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, we’re talking about Owlet, which is helping parents obtain a snapshot into their child’s well-being with their new Owlet Vitals Monitor that works with your very own smartphone.
This week on Engineering Newswire, brought to you by Interpower Corporation, the premier supplier for power system components with a one week manufacturing lead-time and over 4 million parts in stock, we’re wearing scalp sensors in space, pouring drinks with one-armed robotic bartenders, flying a scorpion prototype, and dancing between a designer’s dream and an engineer’s nightmare.
The iController is a versatile hardware platform, and Frank Stempskie, sales manager at Ceremetek, discusses the advantages the iController has over traditional monitoring systems. He also explains how the iController helps improve sensor equipped processes.
Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, Microchip has a new family of microcontrollers that can integrate a full analog signal chain. They also feature an integrated USB, which supports the uploading of clinical data for medical equipment, and can act as a service/data port for industrial equipment.
This week's EEVblog Teardown is an impromptu teardown on the Emona stand at the Electronex trade show. The episode features the Picoscope 5000 flexible resolution USB oscilloscope, and the Tagarno HD ZIP 40x digital magnifier.
