Python is a high-level scripting language. thank you this really helps me to know how bad cell phones can hurt you. They’re mostly used by people that use Linux or macOS. I won’t call Linux virus proof, because there’s no such thing (with the exception of a mechanical cash register, that just barely qualifies as a computer), but you are far less likely to encounter Linux viruses than those for Windows or Mac OS. ASTM E3001-15 is the standard for workplace education on nanotechnology characterization, teaching individuals who will be working with nano meter-scale materials. Parallels Desktop for Mac is the first solution that gives Apple users the ability to run Windows, Linux or any other operating system and their critical applications at the same time as Mac OS X on Intel-powered iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook or MacBook Pro. China in 1993 was in full swing. After Deng Xiaoping’s southern … Read the rest

Customers were left reeling after receiving their long-anticipated Plays Station 5 only to find bags of rice and other odd items (Picture: Getty, Twitter)

Amazon UK customers awaiting the delivery of the new Playstation 5 have been left reeling when they were greeted by bags of rice instead of the sleek games console.

Thieves appear to have stolen PS5s before they were delivered on Thursday and Friday this week.

Disappointed buyers who had ordered months in advance took to Twitter to share their dismay and utter confusion, after discovering their £450 console was replaced with random items such as foot massagers, cat food, and George Foreman grills.

Other customers reported packages had mistakenly been marked as delivered when they hadn’t received anything.

MTV journalist Bex April May tweeted about her ordeal when Amazon marked her PS5 order as ‘missed’ around Thursday afternoon even though no attempt at delivery had been made.… Read the rest

  • PS5 “Queued for Download” bug has a solution that doesn’t require a factory reset.
  • If you’re having trouble downloading games or apps on your new PS5, try starting up in safe mode and rebuilding the database, which PlayStation Support suggests in a tweet.
  • Sony has yet to announce when or if a software update will permanently fix this bug.

Shortly after the PlayStation 5 launched in the US and other regions last week, early adopters began reporting a bug that was affecting their ability to download games on the new console. A number of PS5 owners discovered that when they hit the Download button for select games and apps on the PlayStation Store or in the Game Library, the console would either say it was “Queued for Download” and never actually start downloading the files, or the download would suffer an error before it even started. Either way, it became … Read the rest

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump fired Chris Krebs, who was one of the government’s most senior cybersecurity officials. Trump fired him—by tweet—because Krebs had thoroughly debunked election disinformation, much of which came from the White House itself.

Trump had appointed Krebs director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in 2017. CISA is charged with protecting American critical infrastructure, a vast domain ranging from elections technology to vaccine manufacturing and government systems. Many of the United States’ most sensitive networks fall under CISA’s purview. With Krebs out and Trump’s presidency ending, where does that leave one of America’s most important cybersecurity agencies?

A years-long bipartisan effort to remake the way the US government works in cyberspace could soon push CISA into an elevated role as the nation’s lead cybersecurity agency with a bigger budget, a strengthened position, and louder White House support. The future role of … Read the rest

Gimlet’s Lydia Polgreen tells Peter Kafka about how her parent company Spotify plans to turn music listeners into podcast devotees.

Spotify wants to own the podcasting space, and it’s made that clear with a series of high-profile acquisitions and deals over the past two years — including the Ringer, Gimlet, Joe Rogan, and, most recently, Megaphone. Its next goal: get more of its 300 million users to start listening to podcasts.

Peter Kafka talked to Gimlet Media’s new head of content, Lydia Polgreen, about how she plans to achieve that at the Code Media@Home series.

“Our goal is to get people into the habit of listening to content on Spotify that’s not music,” Polgreen said. While the growth of podcasts has been strong, it’s still a tiny fraction of overall listening for the service. She pointed to … Read the rest

The iPhone 12 mini is small and adorable (Metro.co.uk)

The iPhone 12 mini delivers at long last what many have wanted for years: a truly powerful, truly compact phone.

It manages to have a bigger screen yet smaller body than the recently refreshed iPhone SE.

That was, to date, the smallest iPhone you could get – but it was still using the iPhone 8 design with bezels at the top and bottom along with a home button.

The 12 mini, by comparison, is the same edge-to-edge, notched, FaceID-using design as Apple’s other iPhone 12 models.

It’s got the same squared-off redesign as the other iPhone 12 options and it reminds me quite a bit of the iPhone 5.

Is it the best iPhone for most people? Nope, that would be the standard iPhone 12 which, I think, nails the balance between screen size, performance, camera and value for money. … Read the rest

An AI that completes quests in a text-based adventure game by talking to the characters has learned not only how to do things, but how to get others to do things. The system is a step toward machines that can use language as a way to achieve their goals.

Pointless prose: Language models like GPT-3 are brilliant at mimicking human-written sentences, churning out stories, fake blogs, and Reddit posts. But there is little point to this prolific output beyond the production of the text itself. When people use language, it is wielded like a tool: our words convince, command, and manipulate; they make people laugh and make people cry.

Mixing things up: To build an AI that used words for a reason, researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta and Facebook AI Research combined techniques from natural-language processing and reinforcement learning, where machine-learning models learn how to … Read the rest
