iPhone X: Absolutely everything you need to know

iPhone X: Absolutely everything you need to know

In the few brief moments we spent with the new iPhone X, we got a sense of its truly game-changing potential. Since then, we've taken a close look at the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and found them to be incremental, high-quality updates to last year's models. They're safe and sensible phones that, for now, remain overshadowed by the potential of the forthcoming iPhone X. Our initial assessment: unless you need a new iPhone before the end of 2017, we think it's worth holding out to see how the iPhone X performs. (Not everyone agrees.)

iFixit’s iPhone 8 teardown shows that you really don’t want to crack that glass back

iFixit’s iPhone 8 teardown shows that you really don’t want to crack that glass back The iPhone 8 has finally arrived, and iFixit got a jump on its teardown of the updated device by traveling to Sydney, Australia to pick it up a bit early. Its examination of the phone shows that while it’s similar in some respect to the iPhone 7, you really want to make sure that you don’t break that glass back.

Ford Motor Puts Design Strategy Under the HoloLens

Ford Motor Company on Thursday unveiled details about its use of Microsoft's HoloLens augmented reality technology in the automotive design process. Ford's design teams have swapped out their clay-sculpting tools -- a staple of the automotive world since the 1930s, when Harley Earl introduced them at General Motors -- for mixed reality headsets and visualization software.

Unlike with the clay models, which can weigh 5,000 or more pounds, designers with HoloLens can make instant changes to side mirrors, grilles, interiors and other vehicle elements. And they can do so without even getting their hands dirty.

Ford has been working with Microsoft's HoloLens technology at its Dearborn, Michigan, studios for the past year. The mixed reality tech has allowed designers to consider proposed virtual design elements as if the additions were part of a physical vehicle. It has allowed engineers to see different shapes, sizes and even textures on vehicles. These displays can be render…

CCleaner hacked with malware: What you need to know

CCleaner hacked with malware: What you need to know It seems that CCleaner, one of PCWorld’s recommendations for the best free software for new PCs, might not have been keeping your PC so clean after all. In an in-depth probe of the popular optimization and scrubbing software, Cisco Talos has discovered a malicious bit of code injected by hackers that could have affected more than 2 million users who downloaded the most recent update.

iOS 11's Control Center

iOS 11's Control Center doesn't let you turn off Wi-Fi or Bluetooth Apple’s new Control Center in iOS 11 is a lot more fully featured, with a customizable layout and a number of new added controls accessible with Force Touch. One aspect of it that may have, at least at first, appeared like a big plus is now proving to be a bit of a security and usability problem: the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi controls.

Mellow makes skateboard electric

Electric skateboards are still fairly novel in the grand scheme of “ways to get around,” but for an inherently exciting idea, they’ve gotten awfully boring pretty quick. Boosted still makes the best one, and only a few competitors truly pressure that status. Meanwhile, a China-fueled race to the bottom has flooded the market with boards so full of compromise that many aren’t worth their more palatable $100 to $500 price tags.

Google Chrome

Google Chrome to start blocking autoplay videos in January If you regularly plug headphones into your computer when browsing the internet, you likely know the evils of autoplay videos. One second you're browsing in peace, the next your eardrums are obliterated by an insanely loud advertisement.

Google is being the ultimate pal: In an upcoming update to its Chrome web browser, it will block any autoplay video that has sound. "Starting in Chrome 64," an official blog post noted Thursday, "autoplay will be allowed when either the media won't play sound, or the user has indicated an interest in the media."
How does Google know whether you've indicated an interest in the media? Chrome will register you being interested in autoplay videos when you add a webpage to your phone's home screen or when you frequently play media from a site on Chrome's desktop browser. Outside these parameters, autoplay videos will be paused until you click play.

Kaspersky Software

Apple iPhone X adopts facial recognition and OLED screen

Apple iPhone X adopts facial recognition and OLED screen Apple has revealed a high-end smartphone with an "edge-to-edge" screen that has no physical home button.
The iPhone X - which is referred to as "ten" - uses a facial recognition system to recognise its owner rather than a fingerprint-based one.
Apple said FaceID can work in the dark by using 30,000 infra-red dots to check an identity, and was harder to fool than its old TouchID system.
It is Apple's most expensive phone yet.
A 64 gigabyte capacity model will cost $999 (£999 in the UK) when it goes on sale on 3 November. A 256GB version will be priced at $1,149 (£1,149 in the UK).
