  • Google used 107,000 solar panels to create a portrait of Apollo 11 pioneer Margaret Hamilton

    Jul 19, 2019 | 09:56 am

    Google used 107,000 solar panels to create a portrait of Apollo 11 pioneer Margaret Hamilton In celebration of the 50th anniversary of NASA’s historic moon landing mission, Google built a massive portrait of Apollo 11 software lead Margaret Hamilton using only solar panels and the reflection of the moon. The impressive art installation, which was set up in the Ivanpah Solar Facility in the Mojave Desert, used a total of 107,000 solar mirrors to illustrate Hamilton. The portrait is bigger than New York City’s Central Park spanning 3.6 square kilometers (1.4 square miles). When turned, the solar mirrors illuminate the face of Hamilton, along with an image of a moon drone. For those out of…[…]

    Jul 19, 2019 | 08:46 am

    Australian retirees lose their $900,000 pension fund in cryptocurrency scam A retired couple in Australia have reportedly lost $900,000 to an elaborate cryptocurrency scam.  Mike and Karen Taylor were traveling around Australia in a camper van when they fell for the online scam. The cryptocurrency website they used looked legitimate, Taylor told 7News. It’s not clear how the scam operated, but presumably, the couple invested money on the website enticed by the promise of high returns. Eventually the couple invested a total of $900,000 drawing on their pension program. In a matter of months it had all disappeared, with no return. “That was the whole of our superannuation – that’s…[…]

  • Google and Facebook are tracking your porn preferences – even in incognito mode

    Jul 19, 2019 | 07:38 am

    Google and Facebook are tracking your porn preferences – even in incognito mode It turns out Google and Facebook are tracking your porn consumption habits big time, and even incognito mode can’t save you from their omnipotent gaze – or so say researchers from Microsoft, Carnegie Mellon University, and University of Pennsylvania. Indeed, 93 percent of adult content websites leak sensitive user data to third parties, according to a new study which looked at 22,484 porn sites to examine how they use tracking software to log your most personal browsing tendencies. “[M]any sites and apps include code from other parties of which users are typically unaware,” the authors say. “Such ‘third-party’ code can allow companies to…[…]

  • US watchdog preps BitMEX probe over alleged illegal cryptocurrency trade

    Jul 19, 2019 | 07:06 am

    US watchdog preps BitMEX probe over alleged illegal cryptocurrency trade Cryptocurrency exchange BitMEX is being investigated by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).  According to Bloomberg, which cites people familiar with the matter, the CFTC is looking into whether BitMEX broke the rules by allowing American customers to trade on the platform, which is not registered with the agency. The probe is ongoing and it’s worth noting that the regulator’s investigations don’t always lead to allegations of misconduct. The CFTC declined to comment, Bloomberg says. It comes after BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes said in an interview in January that the cryptocurrency exchange removed anyone who disregarded company rules barring…[…]

  • After endless conflicts, an entrepreneurial ecosystem blooms in Iraq

    Jul 19, 2019 | 06:45 am

    After endless conflicts, an entrepreneurial ecosystem blooms in Iraq You’ll have to cut Iraq some slack for being late to the tech startup party. Since at least the early 2000s, the country was the embodiment of civil war, violence, and protracted armed conflicts. But it all changed this April, when Iraq hosted its first ever nationwide hackathon. The aim was to bring together aspiring entrepreneurs, and solve some of the pressing issues faced by the country through innovation. Organized by the Iraq Technology and Entrepreneurship Alliance (ITEA), the event saw a collaborative effort between 700 youth activists across the cities of Erbil, Baghdad, Basra, Sulaimaniya, and Mosul.
