Although Apple often releases software updates after a phone launch due to bugs that emerge, several issues with the new iPhones were widely discussed on social media and in reports. Of particular note, iOS 16.0.2 fixes a camera vibration issue inside third-party apps like Snapchat and TikTok, in which the camera would make an audible noise when trying to focus. It also fixes a problem with transferring data from an old iPhone to a new iPhone 14. In such transfers, the display on the new device would sometimes appear completely black, requiring a hard reset. Another fix from Apple is to a pop-up that constantly warned users...
    Google's president of the Americas Allan Thygesen speaking to Rutberg's Rajeev Chand at a Rutberg conference in Half Moon Bay, California.Ari Levy | CNBC DocuSign shares rose almost 5% in extended trading after the electronic signature software maker announced it has hired an Alphabet executive, Allan Thygesen, to be its next CEO. The announcement comes three month after DocuSign said its CEO for the past five years, Dan Springer, was stepping down. Like other cloud software companies, DocuSign enjoyed a wave of greater interest among investors during the Covid pandemic as consumers and corporate workers became more reliant on digital ways to sign documents. But the interest has died down. Notwithstanding the after-hours move, DocuSign shares have fallen 64% so far this year. This is breaking news.

    Bret Taylor, co-CEO of Salesforce, speaks at the Viva Technology Conference in Paris on June 15, 2022.Nathan Laine | Bloomberg | Getty Images Ten months after his promotion to co-CEO of Salesforce, serving alongside famed founder Marc Benioff, Bret Taylor is gearing up to take the stage at the annual Dreamforce conference for the first time under his new title. A career technologist with a master's degree in computer science from Stanford, Taylor acknowledged to CNBC that Salesforce's big product unveiling for this year's event is "unabashedly geeky." It's called Genie, and it's designed to update Salesforce's dominant sales database software with modern technology that gives salespeople real-time information at their fingertips. "We're really adding a new technology capability to our platform," Taylor said in an interview. Taylor and Benioff will deliver their keynote on Tuesday, starting at 10 a.m. Pacific Time in San Francisco. To some degree, Salesforce is acknowledging that its existing systems have gotten somewhat dated. The 23-year-old company's original data storage software functions with a transactional database from Oracle, where Benioff spent 13 years before starting...
    An Ivy League college dropout has made Silicon Valley history after Adobe offered to buy his graphic design software company for $20 billion. Adobe on Thursday offered to buy Figma in a cash-and-stock deal that would be the biggest buyout of a software startup on record, despite the sharp drop-off in tech sector valuations this year. Dylan Field, 30, who co-founded Figma in 2012, will easily become a billionaire if the deal closes as expected, though his exact stake in the firm is not clear, according to the Wall Street Journal.  He launched Figma after dropping out of Brown University under a $100,000 fellowship financed by billionaire Peter Thiel, who requires recipients to leave school and pursue entrepreneurship if they are awarded the grants.   Field is a bashful type who favors nights in with board games and wine, friends say. His company offers popular tools that graphic designers use to collaborate on projects online.  Dylan Field, 30, who co-founded Figma in 2012, is set to become a billionaire if Adobe's offer to buy the startup closes next year as expected...
    Technical specifications are similar to the rest of the T7 series. There is a USB-C connection to the USB 3.2 Gen2 standard at 10 Gb / s; It is enough to allow up to 1050 MB / s in continuous reading and up to 1000 MB / s in writing. The warranty is 3 years, with no specific specification on write tolerance. The Samsung T7 Shield comes with two 45cm USB-C cables, one with USB-C connector and the other with USB-A. In use, we discovered an unusual design flaw with this type of case: USB-C cables cannot be fully inserted, and once the case is handled it can lead to an incomplete hold and USB disconnection. Questionably, a USB-C connector sits far behind the plastic facade. A particularly disappointing point from Samsung.

    watch nowVIDEO7:3607:36BofA's vice chair Rick Sherlund predicts tremendous pickup in mergersFast Money Mergers in software may be about to break out. Top investment banker Rick Sherlund of Bank of America sees a wave of struggling companies putting themselves up for sale at cheaper prices due to the economic downturn. "You do need to see greater capitulation," the firm's vice chairman of technology investment banking told CNBC's "Fast Money" on Thursday. "Companies will have their valuation expectations soften, and that will combine with more fully functional financial markets. I think it will accelerate the pace of M&A [mergers and acquisitions]." His broad analysis comes on the heels of Adobe's $20 billion dollar deal Thursday for design platform Figma. Adobe failed to generate excitement on Wall Street. Its shares plunged 17% due to questions about the price tag. Sherlund, a former software analyst who hit No. 1 on Institutional Investor's all-star analyst list 17 times in a row, worked at Goldman Sachs during the 2000 tech bubble. He believes the Street is now in the beginning stages of a difficult market cycle....
    In this article ADBEwatch nowVIDEO2:2202:22Adobe acquires Figma for $20 billionSquawk on the StreetAdobe is paying 2021 prices. It's 2022. Wall Street hates it. Silicon Valley is thrilled. In a year that's featured exactly zero high-profile tech IPOs and far more headlines about mass layoffs than big funding rounds, Adobe's $20 billion acquisition of Figma on Thursday is what some might call a narrative violation. There was no other bidder out there driving up the price, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be named because the details are confidential. Figma's cloud-based designed software has been a growing headache for Adobe over the last few years. It's cheaper (there's even a free tier), easier to use, collaborative and modern, and has been spreading like wildfire among designers at companies big and small. Annualized recurring revenue is poised to more than double for a second straight year, surpassing $400 million in 2022. "This was a significant threat to Adobe," Lo Toney, founding managing partner of Plexo Capital, which invests in start-ups and venture funds, told CNBC's "TechCheck"...
    The suspect told police that when he arrived at work the next day, he thought he was being "treated differently" by his coworkers. Lu assumed Sun had told coworkers about the phone call and talked badly about him. He blamed Sun because he did not receive the promotion. Lu insisted that he did not know any other members of the Sun family or where they resided. Because authorities could not prove that Lu was inside the Sun home, family and friends remained unaware that he was a suspect. Court documents revealed that new technology was able to place Lu at the scene. This year, investigators retested an old purse found inside the home using STRmix software. The software identified Lu's DNA by separating DNA strands from multiple individuals found on the purse. With this new evidence, police had enough to issue a warrant for his arrest. Feng Lu was arrested in San Francisco on Sunday after returning from a trip to China. He is currently being held in San Mateo County Jail and awaiting extradition to Texas. Lu is charged...
    The bipartisan $54 billion CHIPS Act was enacted to minimize risk to the United States, with an eye toward making us less reliant on foreign manufacturing. It was passed with enthusiasm, patriotism and a healthy dose of paranoia. Over the past decades, a significant portion of semiconductor manufacturing has moved out of the United States to reduce costs. Over time, this expertise moved offshore along with associated infrastructure and supply chains, making it difficult to build here in the United States. However, the goal of self-reliance is not only about semiconductors. The Chinese government has poured billions into technology initiatives that are structured in a way that Chinese companies may act as an agent for the state. The Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control keeps track of the bad actors, and the federal government went so far as to say organizations should exercise caution when interacting with firms based in China. Chinese government investments include artificial intelligence (AI), telecommunications and software. Weaponized AI and software are used in sophisticated cybersecurity threats. Cybersecurity attacks, often originating from nation states,...
    In this article ETC.CM=watch nowVIDEO6:4706:47Two crypto experts say the Ethereum network merge is criticalWorldwide ExchangeEthereum's biggest-ever upgrade just took effect, in what industry experts are calling a game changer for the entire crypto sector. Thus far, all signs suggest the so-called merge — which is designed to cut the cryptocurrency's energy consumption by more than 99% — was a success. The overhaul to the ethereum network fundamentally alters the way the blockchain secures its network and verifies transactions. Most of these changes are happening under the hood and the hallmark of a successful upgrade is if the end user doesn't feel a difference in the hours and days ahead. Cryptocurrencies such as ethereum and bitcoin are often criticized for the process of mining to generate new coins. Before the merge, both blockchains had their own vast network of miners all over the planet running highly specialized computers that crunched math equations in order to validate transactions. It is called proof-of-work, uses a lot of energy and is one of the industry's biggest targets for critiques. But with the upgrade, ethereum has migrated to a...
    A BELGIAN artist has highlighted how easy it is to creepily track people using public CCTV feeds. Dries Depoorter created artificial intelligence (AI) software that matches up people's Instagram snaps to security footage. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dries Depoorter (@driesdepoorter) The result is a series of compilation snaps of people posing next to landmarks around the globe. One half of the image shows their Instagram post, while the other shows them posing for the photo as seen through a CCTV camera. To create the project, called The Follower, Depoorter, 31, began by recording camera feeds that are public and broadcast live online. These included 24-hour CCTV footage captured at Times Square in New York City and outside of the famous Temple Bar pub in Dublin.

    By Samantha Murphy Kelly | CNN Business Apple on Monday released its next-generation mobile software, iOS 16, with new features that allow users to personalize their iPhone lock screens and change how they text friends through iMessage. Among the most anticipated changes is the ability to edit and unsend recently sent iMessages, or mark the messages as unread if users want to revisit them later. Recipients will receive an alert that the original message was edited or deleted, and it only works if both parties are running iOS 16. Apple previously said this was among the most requested features among users. But perhaps the biggest change is the interactive lock screen. It now features custom fonts, new photo effects, personalized wallpapers and widgets that add information at a glance. Widgets include calendar events, battery life, alarms, Apple Watch Activity rings and the weather, as well as the ability to track “live” activities, such as an Uber ride’s progress, updates on a sports game or food deliveries. (Android introduced an interactive lock screen last year). There are also options to create...

    Apple's latest software update - iOS 16 - will be released today for all iPhone models from the iPhone 8 up. First announced back in June, and with the launch date confirmed at Apple's 'Far Out' event last week, the operating system includes a range of new features. These include a redesigned lock screen, the ability to unsend messages and emails, and the option to set up an iCloud Shared Photo Library. There is also a new 'Lockdown Mode' which reduces the device's functionality in order to protect it from cyber attacks. 'Designed to take advantage of the new capabilities of iPhone 14 Pro, iOS 16 features a reimagined Lock Screen along with new communication, sharing, and intelligence features that together change the way users experience iPhone,' Apple explained in a post on its newsroom.  MailOnline takes a look at all the key features that come with iOS 16, and how you can download the update.

    We’re used to talking about Android in bits and pieces. Of course, releasing new major Android releases is an issue that needs to be addressed. However, Google knows how to roll out new features without resorting to a major update. Here’s what’s new for Android, Google TV and Wear OS. We are not talking about the new Android version here, but about the many features that you can take advantage of without installing a major update. In fact, Google is planning to release several new Android features in the next few weeks.

    By Matt McFarland | CNN Business Tesla’s price for the feature it calls “full self-driving” has increased again. This time to $15,000, making it an unusually expensive option for a car. “After wide release of FSD Beta 10.69.2, price of FSD will rise to $15k in North America on September 5,” Musk tweeted last month. The release of the new software version was delayed on Monday until “probably end of week. Needs a bit more polish,” Musk said, but the price increase took effect. Some Tesla owners who paid far less for an earlier, unfinished version of the same “full self-driving” software that now retails for $15,000 caution that the new price does not make sense for most buyers. CNN Business spoke with 13 people who have cars with the “full self-driving” beta and the overwhelming majority, 11 people, said they felt it wasn’t worth $15,000.

    Bad actors are taking advantage of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) popularity by hiding malware in the first public image shared by President Biden in July that shows a glowing galaxy that formed 4.6 billion years ago. The image is being used in a phishing email campaign, in which attackers are hiding a malicious code in the photo that is released into victim's computer systems when downloaded. The attack, dubbed GO#WEBBFUSCATOR, was discovered by security experts at Securonix who said the malicious file 'is undetectable by all antivirus systems.' Securonix VP Augusto Barros told Popular Science that this specific JWST image may have been chosen because even if antivirus software does flag users, they may be more inclined to ignore the warning because this image has been shared around the world.

    Mouse mover.Sofia Pitt Employers are monitoring productivity more than ever, in part thanks to the boom in remote work. Employees are turning to gadgets to outsmart monitoring software. One such tool is a mouse mover, or mouse jiggler, that's supposed to keep your screen on. I decided to give one a try to see if it works. I learned about mouse jigglers on TikTok. A mouse mover is a device that claims to be undetectable by your computer. As the name indicates, the device simulates mouse movement, preventing your computer from going into sleep mode. So-called "tattleware," or surveillance software is being installed on company-issued devices to track employee screen time, keyboard usage, and clicks.

    CrowdStrike IPO at the Nasdaq exchange June 12, 2019.Source: Nasdaq Economic concerns were a major theme across the technology industry during second-quarter earnings season, as companies cautioned about slower spending on ads, gadgets, e-commerce and software. But with interest rates rising and inflation stuck near a 40-year high, one part of the tech sector is still showing booming demand: cybersecurity. Earnings reports this week from CrowdStrike and SentinelOne pleasantly surprised Wall Street, and both companies, which specialize in protecting the many devices attached to corporate networks, boosted their forecasts for the year. "Cybersecurity is not a discretionary line item," CrowdStrike CEO George Kurtz said on his company's earnings call. Investors heard similar commentary last week from Palo Alto Networks, which reported a profit for the first time in a decade. The data center security company's stock soared 12%, its best performance since its IPO in 2012. And two weeks ago, Cisco said its security business grew faster than all other segments, surpassing analysts' estimates by about $100 million. Security is now Cisco's top investment area, CEO...
    Law enforcement agencies across the United States have been using a little-known cellphone tracking tool to dig up location data on suspects without acquiring warrants. The tool, known as "Fog Reveal," allows law enforcement to create location analyses of users by accessing hundreds of billions of records from 250 million mobile devices. This data-gathering practice was revealed as lawmakers scrutinized data brokers for various privacy-related concerns. "[Fog Reveal] represents a direct and uniquely modern threat to our privacy. Its business is only possible because of a cascade of decisions by tech platforms, app developers, lawmakers, and judges, all of whom have failed to adequately protect regular users," wrote Electronic Frontier Foundation staff technologist Bennett Cyphers in a review of the technology's uses. Cyphers noted a number of failures by lawmakers and tech companies to enforce stronger privacy protections, as well as courts failing to clarify that a person's Fourth Amendment rights "aren't diminished just because they're carrying a smartphone that can transmit their location to apps and data brokers."

    A robot car of the General Motors subsidiary Cruise is on a test drive.Andrej Sokolow | picture alliance | Getty Images General Motors' autonomous vehicle unit Cruise has recalled and updated software in 80 self-driving robotaxis after a June crash in San Francisco that resulted in minor injuries, according to public filings. The crash on June 3 involved a Cruise vehicle, which does not require a human driver, braking harshly while making an unprotected left turn as an oncoming vehicle traveling about 40 mph – 15 mph above the speed limit – switched from a right turn lane to travel through the intersection. In public filings, federal regulators said the recalled software may "incorrectly predict another vehicle's path or be insufficiently reactive to the sudden path change of a road user." Cruise said a software update was conducted to address the problem in July. Following the crash, Cruise said its robotaxi fleet continued to operate but that it temporarily prevented the vehicles from making unprotected left turns. It said it gradually reintroduced unprotected left turns after the software update. The...
    New York (CNN Business)The work-from-home boom may be over, and that's not good news for one pandemic stock market darling. Zoom's weak earnings outlook and plunging stock price raise the question of whether or not the video conferencing company is a one-trick pony that needs to be part of a larger tech firm.It may have trouble finding a suitor, though. Competition is fierce in the video conferencing business, which means that there aren't any obvious buyers. And analysts say Zoom is still pretty pricey, even after the big stock drop.Zoom has to contend with several larger tech giants that already have similar products and presumably would not need or want Zoom's technology or customer base. Microsoft (MSFT) operates Teams and Skype. Cisco (CSCO) has WebEx, which Zoom CEO Eric Yuan helped build. Google owner Alphabet (GOOGL) runs Meet and Chat. Virtual meetings can crush creativity, new study findsApple (AAPL) likely wouldn't make sense as a Zoom buyer either. The company already has the ubiquitous FaceTime video chat platform for its iPhones, iPads and Macs. And Apple did a deal in...
    A DODGY app with over a million downloads is giving Android users a bit of a headache.

That makes it very difficult to identify and remove the source of the pop-ups, which users are bombarded with frequently.

    Tesla has demanded videos of their self-driving cars striking child-size mannequins to be taken down after they were posted by The Dawn Project, a group dedicated to getting Tesla's 'full self-driving' technology off the roads.  Tesla, the electric vehicle company owned by Elon Musk, sent a cease-and-desist letter over the commercial, which seemingly shows their cars in self-driving mode hitting child-size models at 20mph to demonstrate how dangerous the software allegedly is. Dan O'Dowd, the billionaire behind The Dawn Project, narrates the video and calls for Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta software to be banned from the road, saying Tesla's software is 'the worst commercial software I've ever seen.'  The responding letter accused O'Dowd of 'disseminating defamatory information to the public regarding the capabilities of Tesla’s Full Self-Driving.'  The letter disputes whether the Tesla cars in the video had full self-driving on and reiterated 'independent safety agencies have rated Tesla’s safety at the highest levels.' The video, which was posted to Twitter, shows child-size mannequins being slammed by Teslas as The Dawn Project founder Dan O'Dowd criticizes the company Another mannequin...
    (CNN)Sometimes when Charlie Chasen or Michael Malone would be out and about on their own in Atlanta, people would mistake one for the other. The long-time friends who live in Atlanta are not related. Their ancestors don't even come from the same part of the world. Malone's family came from the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic. Chasen's family came from Scotland and Lithuania. They aren't the result of some deep dark family secret, either. Yet they look strikingly similar. It's not just their brown hair, beards and glasses. It's also the structure of their nose, their cheekbones, and the shape of their lips. Pierre Rondou and Camille Dubé Karen Chu and Ashlee Wong "Michael and I go way back and it's all been like a source of a lot of fun for us because over the years, we've been mistaken for each other all over the place all over Atlanta," Chasen told CNN's Don Lemon.

    Dylan Field, co-founder and CEO of Figma, speaks at the startup's Config conference in San Francisco on May 10, 2022.Figma Microsoft and Adobe have been friendly bedfellows for decades. Microsoft's dominant PC operating system has been the gateway for Adobe to reach millions of business users with its design software. The companies' CEOs even attended the same high school in India, and both moved to the U.S. in the 1980s for graduate school in computer science. They share a common bond over the successful transition from desktop software to the cloud. But inside Microsoft, an emerging challenge to Adobe is catching fire and raising questions about the future of one of the tech industry's most intimate relationships. Figma, a San Francisco-based startup that celebrated its 10th anniversary in August, is being used by tens of thousands of employees inside Microsoft and, for many, is at the heart of their daily work.
