Don’t track me, bro! US Supreme court limits cell location tracking without a warrant

In an clear win for proponents of data privacy, the Supreme Court issued a decision that requires law enforcement to obtain a warrant to track individuals through cell records “in the rare case where the suspect has a legitimate privacy interest in records held by a third party”. It’s not a complete protection, but it goes a long way toward setting precedent that cell phone data should be protected by the Fourth amendment. This decision is the result of the Carpenter vs. United States case, wher

VPN vs Cloudflare DNS: Which is best for privacy?

Cloudflare has launched a new DNS service, 1.1.1.1, which it claims is the internet’s fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service. The DNS service that connects you to the internet is provided by your ISP, which logs all the websites you visit. Cloudflare DNS also minimizes the query names sent to authoritative DNS servers – instead of sending “www.one.example.com”, it just discloses the “example.com” part of your request to authoritative DNS servers, reducing any privacy leakages that could occ

The Resident Evil 2 remake on PC won’t require a scary powerful rig

A fully remastered re-release of Resident Evil 2 was one the surprise hits of E3 2018 , and even better that it’s coming to PC. Somehow the best news is the lax system requirements that were just published on the game’s pre-order page on Steam. In fact, if you want an ideal – or recommended – play experience, you won’t even need a very recent processor. Of course, these friendlier system requirements are likely on account of the game being released to the comparatively limited PS4 and Xbox One .

‘Cheza’ Chromebook could be a Snapdragon 845 2-in-1 tablet

Snapdragon processors surprisingly came to Windows 10 laptops before Chromebooks despite the fact that the latter can now use Android apps, but there might soon be a Snapdragon 845-powered Chrome OS machine to rectify this. Supposedly a new 2-in-1 tablet named ‘Cheza’ is in the works, according to XDA developers who discovered some early code in Chromium. Aside from being a debut Snapdragon 845 device, Android apps have all been optimized for Qualcomm’s chips, so ‘Cheza’ could be one of the best

OnePlus 7: what we want to see

We don’t know anything about the OnePlus 7 (or even the OnePlus 6T) yet, but we’ll be sure to add any leaks and rumors as and when we hear them. The OnePlus 6 was announced in May 2018, so May 2019 is a possibility for the OnePlus 7, though we got the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 in June of their respective years, so June 2019 is also a possible launch period. There’s no word on what the OnePlus 7 will cost, but the OnePlus 6 started at $529 / £469 (around AU$840) and prices have been gradually creep

The A to Z of Photography: Viewfinders

Many cameras have viewfinders, even though they have a screen on the back for viewing and composing pictures. Some lower-end cameras don’t have viewfinders, relying solely on the screen on the back of the camera for composing photos. Most viewfinders today show you the view through the camera lens, but direct vision viewfinders are separate. Old snapshot cameras used direct vision viewfinders because they were cheap and simple, and they’re still used for instant cameras today. They might not be
