The leaked data from web hosting company Epik has started unraveling the double-life of many of its customers, according to reports. Hacktivist group Anonymous recently claimed to have obtained and leaked 180GB of data on Epik's business and customers, for its position of providing web hosting services to many prominent right-wing and controversial platforms, such as the Gab social media platform, Bitchute video sharing, and the pro-Trump Patriots.win messaging board. Aubrey “Kirtaner” Cottle, a security researcher and co-founder of Anonymous, told The Washington Post that the group’s actions were fueled by their frustrations over Epik serving as a refuge for far-right extremists.

If you're looking for the best mirrorless camera you can buy, we're here to help. Every camera in this guide has been rigorously tested to make sure it deserves its spot in our pick of the top mirrorless cameras available today. What's the best mirrorless camera in 2021? While it's difficult to pick out just one, as it depends on your shooting needs, we think the Fujifilm X-T4 is the best all-round choice for most people. It isn't a full-frame camera, but its slightly smaller APS-C sensor still produces excellent photos and video, and there are other benefits to that sensor size, including compact lenses and speedy burst shooting. If you have your heart set on a full-frame camera , though, we think the slightly more expensive Canon EOS R6 (and its pricier Canon EOS R5 sibling) are fine choices. Both cameras have a growing range of excellent RF lenses and are bursting with useful features, including in-body image stabilization (IBIS) and class-leading autofocus. For everyday … [Read more...] about Best mirrorless camera 2021: the 15 best choices for every budget
The best 17-inch laptops tower over their smaller counterparts in more ways than one. These laptops are not only herculean in size, but in power, performance, and display as well. So, while 13-inch notebooks might win in portability and 15-inch laptops have proven themselves a favorite among professionals, a strong case can be made for the biggest portables. You’re not just getting a much bigger display – although the fact that you have more screen real estate is definitely a major advantage, especially for gaming and video editing . More importantly, excellent 17-inch laptops come with more powerful processors and GPUs , which means that they can handle the more demanding workloads. Some even come with bigger batteries. Finally, since they have a lot of room in their chassis, they have enough space not only for such components but also better heat management. So, even though 17-inch laptops may often sacrifice portability – with the exception of a small … [Read more...] about The best 17-inch laptop 2021: top large-screen notebooks for any budget
Like many Mac-based creative professionals, I followed this year's WWDC keynote anxiously, awaiting the "one more thing" that never came: an E5 Xeon refresh of the Mac Pro line. Its absence was brutally disappointing; thankfully, Tim Cook broke his vow of secrecy to reassure us that a new Mac Pro will arrive in 2013. But for filmmakers compressing hours of 4K footage or school labs in need of new Maya machines, that’s a long time to wait—perhaps too long. Since I was also in the market for a machine to help out with my V-Ray renders, I decided that the time had come to evaluate my alternatives. The current Westmere-based Mac Pro line is definitely out of sync with what’s available elsewhere, and it is no longer competitive from a price-to-power standpoint. I have heard it said that Dell, HP, and Apple split the workstation market pretty much three ways; whether or not this is true, it did seem worth taking a look at how the other big boys’ hot-rods rolled. The HP Z820 and Dell … [Read more...] about As Mac Pro stagnates, PC workstations muscle ahead
If you’re in the market for the best wired gaming headsets available today, you’ve come to the right place. From headsets that are comfortable to wear for hours on end to the best cans for crushing the competition online, we’ve tested and selected the best wired gaming headsets that you can buy right now. Even though wireless headphones have taken off in recent years, wired gaming headsets remain incredibly popular for a number of reasons. A wired gaming headset gives you far more flexibility than a wireless pair could ever hope to achieve (you're not restricted by Bluetooth, needing a dongle, or being unable to connect to specific devices), and microphones tend to sound better than their wireless counterparts, with greater fidelity. Another advantage that wired headphones often have over their wireless counterparts is that if your device has a headphone jack, your favorite pair of cans will work on it. You also don’t need to worry about any audio latency, interference, … [Read more...] about Best wired gaming headsets 2021: plug and play

Throw it on a charger and then put on a two-hour movie. Ara Wagoner 27 Sep 2021 1 Source: Ara Wagoner / Android Central When I upgraded from the Galaxy Watch Active to the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 , I expected an upgrade in just about every way. Wear OS 3 brought us Google Play apps and services while the One UI Watch skin gave us the software fit and polish Samsung is known, and there are more health tracking features than ever, even if the most advanced ones are limited to Galaxy phones . Unfortunately, the battery has only lasted about 24-36 hours on a charge, and recharges are slower than the Watch Active, too. Meanwhile, Apple's upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 is packing a new USB-C-plugged wireless charger that works with Power Delivery for faster speeds. … [Read more...] about The Apple Watch Series 7 beats the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 in this important way

In a new update for Opera GX, the gaming version of Opera’s web browser, you can now set RGB lighting, which lights up peripherals and hardware on your PC, to certain web actions with Corsair’s iCue peripherals, so their lighting effects will change depending on what you’re doing in the browser.. If you use a PC primarily for gaming, there’s a good chance that you’ve already set up multiple color profiles with the RGB-enabled components and peripherals installed in your rig. The ability to synchronize the RGB lighting effects of your hardware with what’s happening in games has been around for a while now, but with so many gaming peripherals still going all-in on RGB, it felt inevitable that we’d eventually see RGB-enabled web browsers. But, we wanted to find out more about this collaboration between Opera and Corsair, so we spoke with the Product Manager for Opera GX, Maciej Kocemba, about how and why this occurred. Our pick of the best web browsers in 2021 … [Read more...] about Corsair and Opera team up to bring RGB to web browsers… finally!
Eric Rosengren, the president and chief executive of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, announced on Monday that he would retire nearly a year earlier than planned. Rosengren said that he was retiring in hopes that a lifestyle change would prevent a kidney condition from worsening. “It has been an honor to serve at the Federal Reserve System, in a job where one can be constantly engaged in pursuing the economic and financial well-being of the country and New England,” Rosengren said in a statement released Monday. Rosengren was one of two Fed presidents whose financial activity in 2020 has come under fire in recent weeks. Rosengren held stakes in and traded shares of real estate investment trust at a time when the Fed was intervening in markets, including the market for mortgage securities, to stave off the effects of the pandemic. In addition, Rosengren disclosed he had traded individual stocks, including shares of Pfizer and AT&T.
