$1 digital blowjobs that apparently feel like the real deal

When it comes to technological innovation, one need only look to the porn industry to see the future. A perennial early adopter of emerging technologies, the adult entertainment industry has pioneered everything from e-commerce to streaming video, so it makes sense that it’d be in the vanguard of the latest tech revolutions: virtual reality and the internet of things.

At this point VR sex and internet connected dildos (aka teledildonics) are old news, but a webcam platform called CamSoda (the same company that offered Ken Bone $100,000 to do a sexy livestream) wants to take both of these technologies to the next level with BlowCast, a virtual on-demand blowjob marketplace.

$5 device can hack password-protected computers in just 30 seconds

Even the strongest passwords are fallible, and as Samy Kamkar demonstrates, sometimes it doesn’t take much.
Kamkar’s new exploit, PoisonTap, uses free software and a $5 Raspberry Pi Zero microcomputer. After attaching the Raspberry Pi to a USB adapter and plugging it in, the device goes to work. In all of 30 seconds, it bypasses your lock screen and begins installing a backdoor that works even after the device is removed from the USB port.
If you think a strong password will save you, you’d be wrong. PoisonTap doesn’t work that way. It’s not trying to guess your password, but instead bypass it entirely — and it works.

SAN FRANCISCO — After being criticised for not paying its fair share of British tax, Alphabet Inc’s Google unit is trying to show that it’s a good corporate citizen by offering five hours of free digital skills training to all UK residents.
Google chief executive officer Sundar Pichai said on Tuesday (Nov 15) the company also will bring “virtual reality field trips” to one million British students and their teachers within the next year.

“Our aim is to make sure that every individual and business in the UK has the support they need to make the most of online tools to innovate, compete and have fruitful careers in the digital age,” Mr Pichai said in a statement referring to the digital training efforts.
Google is offering face-to-face instruction in digital skills and personal mentoring in 100 cities and towns across the UK as well as online under its Digital Garage initiative, the company said. Under a previous version of the initiative, announced in March 2015, Google said it had trained and coached 250,000 people in 80 British municipalities.

Apple will fix iPhone 6 Plus 'touch disease,' for $149

Apple has launched a new repair program for a widely reported on iPhone 6 Plus hardware malfunction known as “touch disease,” which renders the touchscreen useless and manifests as a thin grey line at the top the display. 

According to Apple, however, this flaw is caused by dropping the phone repeatedly. The company says it will not cover the cost of a repair and will ask those affected by the issue to pay $149 to have it fixed. That might not sit too well with the iPhone owners who filed class action lawsuits against Apple over the touch disease issue.
