MyRepublic says almost 80,000 of its mobile subscribers in Singapore have had their personal data compromised, following a security breach on a third-party data storage platform. The affected system had contained identity verification documents needed for mobile services registration, including scanned copies of national identity cards and residential addresses of foreign residents. The "unauthorised data access" incident was uncovered on August 29 and the relevant authorities had been informed of the breach, said MyRepublic in a statement Friday. It pointed to industry regulator Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and Personal Data Protection Commission, which oversees the country's Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA). MyRepublic said personal data of its mobile customers were stored on the affected system, adding that "unauthorised access to the data storage facility" since had been plugged. The incident had been "contained", it said. Asked how long it had used the … [Read more...] about MyRepublic customer data compromised in third-party security breach
The new MacBook Pro 14-inch and MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) laptops are now official, and they are some seriously strong candidates for the best laptops ever made if Apple’s claims about their performance hold up under testing. The biggest gain over the Apple M1 chip is a doubling of the performance cores from four to eight, but also the doubling and quadrupling of the GPU cores from eight at its highest in the MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020) to 16 cores in the M1 Pro chip and up to 32 in the M1 Max chip . With that kind of potential GPU performance, somewhere, cryptomining operators are turning their heads and running multivariable algebra to try and calculate the profitability of mining cryptocurrency, especially Ether, on a GPU as powerful as Apple claims. There are a lot of things that go into cryptomining profitability, from the energy cost to run a rig to the price of the equipment to the current price for a given currency. And given the seriously premium price tag … [Read more...] about Are cryptominers going to buy up all the new MacBook Pro stock?
Home / Opinions / Games The thrilling conclusion! This time around, you'll be chased by more than just raptors. Nicholas Sutrich 18 Oct 2021 0 Source: Nick Sutrich / Android Central At the very tail-end of 2020, Oculus Studios released one of my favorite VR games of the year, Jurassic World Aftermath . While the game wasn't without its faults, it was one of the strongest examples of a game that makes the most sense in VR. After all, hiding from dinosaurs — just raptors in the first game — is absolutely terrifying and wouldn't give you that sense of terror without being in the world. Nine months later, developer Coatsink delivered Jurassic World Aftermath Part 2, the direct follow-up to the cliffhanger ending of the first part. Instead of being a free addition, Coatsink is charging $15 for the game — a $10 price reduction over part 1 — much to the chagrin of some players who didn't notice the buy button for the expansion … [Read more...] about Jurassic World Aftermath Part 2 review: More dinos, more terror, more money
For nearly seven years, LinkedIn has been the only major Western social networking platform still operating in China . People like 32-year-old Jason Liu view it as an important career enhancing tool. Come the end of the year, Liu will no longer have access to the localised version of LinkedIn, after Microsoft , which acquired the platform in 2016, said last week that it would pull out, citing a "significantly more challenging operating environment." "It's a shame," said Liu, who works in the technology industry in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen and uses the site to network with other professionals online. "LinkedIn gave me a platform to post about my results at work, such as my achievements and promotions, which aren't always appropriate to post on other platforms like WeChat." LinkedIn will be replaced in China by a jobs posting site called InJobs, without a social media feed and capability for sharing content, Microsoft said. LinkedIn has over … [Read more...] about linkedin: Chinese users’ feelings mixed about LinkedIn pulling out: Report
Telco complaints are down 17% across Australia per 10,000 services to a total of just under 1.1 million, but the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has found the time taken for complaints to be resolved is spiking. Since the 2018-19 fiscal year, the weighted average days to resolve a complaint has moved from 8.2 days to 12.2 in 2020-21. Across 32 telcos measured in its report, ACMA found the median interval was 4.1 days, and the average was 5.4 days -- numbers that were essentially steady compared to last year. The rate of complaints needing to be referred to the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman Judy Jones, who will be leaving the post in March next year, has increased by 1.4 percentage points to 10.7% in the past year. "This suggests that some telcos are not handling complaints at all well, and other smaller telcos are in fact not recording complaints at all," ACMA authority member Fiona Cameron said. "Seven smaller telcos have absurdly high escalation … [Read more...] about Seven smaller Australian telcos have half of all complaints referred to TIO: ACMA
Pack your shades, your sunscreen and your coziest tinfoil hat, because the late-summer event of the season is happening in Nevada's scenic Area 51 , and you're invited. According to a tongue-in-cheek Facebook event called "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us," a ragtag army of alien hunters will meet up near the top-secret Air Force base in the predawn hours of Sept. 20, coordinate a plan of attack, then raid the grounds in search of captive aliens. Per the event's hosts (a page that posts memes and a guy who streams video games on Twitch), the delicate operation will involve running supernaturally fast — faster than the guards' bullets can fly — but will be worth it to " see them aliens ." So far, nearly 200,000 Facebook users have signed up to attend, with another 200,000 "interested" in the affair. [ 15 Far-Out Facts About Area 51 ] This event is, of course, a joke (please, do not raid this or any other military base). Area 51 — a massive plot of desert about 80 … [Read more...] about Nearly 200K People Have Signed Up to Steal Alien Secrets from Area 51 in Late-Summer Raid
In her race to secure the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary Clinton has recently drawn support from an unusual voter base — alien enthusiasts. First in a radio interview, then again on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Clinton expressed interest in making public files about UFOs and the mysterious Nevada site called Area 51 . "I would like us to go into those files and hopefully make as much of that public as possible. If there's nothing there, let's tell people there's nothing there," said Clinton, speaking with Kimmel. She confirmed that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had also gone looking for extraterrestrial information during his presidency and came up empty. And that's what the public can probably expect from these "UFO files," experts told Live Science.

Dying Light Platinum Edition was officially released for Nintendo Switch on October 19 but, thanks to the knock-on-effect of a German ban, you'll only be able to buy a digital version of the survival horror game if you're in the US or Australia. Dying Light on Switch is unavailable to buy digitally in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, meaning players in these regions can only purchase the game physically if they want to play. That's because Dying Light is banned in Germany, where the Nintendo eShop for Europe, Australia and New Zealand is registered, meaning that the eShop can't sell the digital version. Techland addressed the issue in response to a Redditor who asked why they couldn't access the game in their region, saying: "If you're talking about the digital version, then due to nature of content the digital version of the game is currently banned in Germany where European e-Shop is officially registered. This is making it impossible to officially distribute the game … [Read more...] about Why you may not be able to buy Dying Light on Switch digitally
Does your phone last all day on a single charge? How about a year from now? Battery anxiety is real, and if you're contemplating a new phone like the Motorola Razr , Samsung Galaxy Note 20 or the upcoming iPhone 12 , its battery life is an increasingly important factor in deciding if that device is worth the money. As we expect more from our phones -- and want them to last longer -- the importance of an all-day charge has become a critical feature, alongside screen size and camera quality. The enduring emphasis on battery life is one reason why fast chargers are now so ubiquitous, at least for high-end devices. The fastest, most power-delivering of all belong to premium phones like the Galaxy S20 and iPhone 11 . If the battery threatens to drain before the end of the day, quickly recharging it with your lightning-fast quick charger is the next best thing. With fast charging especially, a 10-minute charge can make the difference between going into an … [Read more...] about Does fast charging affect battery life? 6 phone battery questions, answered
