Intel Windows 10 Graphics DHC Drivers 188.8.131.5223
Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
Google Maps Just Introduced a Controversial New Feature That Drivers Will Probably Love (but Police Will Utterly Hate)
“But Waze, which is actually owned by Google, has one feature I greatly appreciate: It lets other drivers warn of the locations of road hazards and police speed traps…This week, however, Google announced the next best thing: Starting immediately, drivers will be able to report hazards, slowdowns, and speed traps right on Google Maps.”
The reason I use Waze over Google is specifically because of the fact it does tell you about speed traps and such. I’m not a speed demon and I’m not doing 100 miles an hour dodging through traffic. Anyone have a family member that used to have a police scanner at home? My Grandpa used to have one in the kitchen. He would sit there at night listening to it and drinking a PBR. I’m really tired of the Po-Po whining about this stuff.
Paul Thurrott – Windows 10 Version 1909 Review
“From a review standpoint, there’s not much to say. You’ll notice very few changes when compared to the previous version of Windows 10.”
Like I said on the 15th, “There ain’t much there there.”
Friendly reminder: Biometrics are not the best way to secure your phone
“Samsung has spent millions on making its phones more secure, and on making sure customers know about it. You’d think all that money would be enough to fend off the threat of a $2 silicone case. Apparently not…The truth is, fingerprints and other biometric authentication methods are flawed. You shouldn’t rely on them if you actually care about mobile security. PINs and passwords are much more secure — if less convenient — methods of authentication.”
Why we should ban facial recognition technology everywhere
Article links to an article by two PhD’s: What Happens When Employers Can Read Your Facial Expressions?
“Facial recognition is truly a one-of-a-kind technology — and we should treat it as such. Our faces are central to our identities, online and off, and they are difficult to hide. People look to our faces for insight into our innermost feelings and dispositions. Our faces are also easier to capture than biometricsClose X like fingerprints and DNA, which require physical contact or samples. And facial recognition technology is easy to use and accessible, ready to plug into police body cameras and other systems.
We support a wide-ranging ban on this powerful technology. But even limited prohibitions on its use in police body cams, D.M.V. databases, public housing and schools would be an important start.”
I don’t disagree with the sentiment but that genie is out of the bottle. Too bad she doesn’t look like Barbara Eden.
Alexa and Google Home abused to eavesdrop and phish passwords
“By now, the privacy threats posed by Amazon Alexa and Google Home are common knowledge. Workers for both companies routinely listen to audio of users—recordings of which can be kept forever—and the sounds the devices capture can be used in criminal trials.
Now, there’s a new concern: malicious apps developed by third parties and hosted by Amazon or Google. The threat isn’t just theoretical.”
I don’t understand why folks are using these things?
Men Exercising Before Breakfast Burn Twice The Fat And Have ‘Profound Changes’ On Health Says Study
“New research finds that men who workout before breakfast burn twice as much fat as those who exercise after. Those who workout before breakfast also enjoyed “profound changes” on their health. However, the pre-breakfast exercise routine did not translate into more weight loss.”
Can I at least have my coffee first?
Anheuser-Busch InBev accuses rival of obtaining the secret recipe for Bud Light
“Anheuser-Busch InBev has accused rival brewer Miller Coors of obtaining the secret recipes for Bud Light and Michelob Ultra, the latest shot in a long running legal dispute.
The world’s largest brewer claimed Thursday in US court documents that Miller Coors, a subsidiary of Molson Coors, has obtained the “precise recipes” for some of its most popular beers, which it considers trade secrets.”
Why would you want the recipe for that horrible beer?
After Kaga, explorers zero in on second sunken Japanese carrier from Battle of Midway
“Deep-sea explorers scouring the world’s oceans for sunken World War II ships are focusing in on debris fields deep in the Pacific, in an area where one of the most decisive battles of the time took place.
Hundreds of miles off Midway Atoll, nearly halfway between the United States and Japan, a research vessel is launching underwater robots miles into the abyss to look for warships from the famed Battle of Midway.”
