|All the way from Japan Patrick Beja|
|t||Intel announced it’s new 10-core Broadwell E-gaming chip. New jargon comes free with the chip, called Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, which means each core on a chip is tested to see if it can safely be pushed past normal limits. That will stretch the claimed 20-25% performance increase. Four versions will be available topping out with the 6950X at 3GHz, 25 MB of onboard cache, DDR2400, Thunderbolt 3.0 and thermal design power of 140 watts. All for $1,723. BUt you can save money on the board! The 6950X, 6900X, 6850X and 6800X are all drop-in replacements for previous Haswell-E chips as long as the board vendor has the appropriate BIOS update.||http://www.pcworld.com/article/3076158/components/intels-broadwell-e-gaming-cpu-is-a-stunner-offering-10-cores-for-a-whopping-1723.html|
|p||The EC announced Tuesday that Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, and YouTube agreed to an EU code of conduct that requires them to review "the majority of" hateful online content within 24 hours of being notified — and remove it, if necessary. |
The companies must also promote "independent counter-narratives" to hate speech and propaganda.
|t||Periscope is rolling out a new abuse reporting system along with an app update Tuesday. If one viewer reports a comment it gets sent to five other randomly selected viewers that Periscope calls a “Flash Jury.” If 3 of the 5 members of the flash jury agree with the original report, the commenter will get a one-minute time out. Repeated offenders will be muted for the remainder of the stream.||http://www.recode.net/2016/5/31/11803070/periscope-abuse-safety-update-internet-trolls|
|p||Atari has announced a partnership with French IoT networking company Sigfox to produce a line of Internet of Thing connected devices that will roll out this year. |
Atari’s press release said “the initial product line will include categories such as home, pets, lifestyle, and safety.”
VentureBeat notes Sigfox’s network currently runs in 18 countries and with around 7 million devices.
|t||Duo Security released a report Tuesday that says Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo ship with preinstalled software that contains at least one security vulnerability that would allow malware to run at the system level. That’s 38 million PCs shipped in the first quarter according to IDC estimates. The most common was a lack of TLS encryption on updates from PC makers. Duo found 12 bugs half of them high. Most have been fixed though Asus and Acer have yet to offer updates.||http://www.zdnet.com/article/hp-dell-acer-asus-bloatware-security-flaws-vulnerabilities/|
|p||MySpace has confirmed that a large set of stolen MySpace username and unsalted SHA-1 hashed passwords are being sold in an online forum. |
It appears to be around 360 million accounts from before June 11, 2013. That date was when MySpace began double-salting hashes.
Myspace has invalidated the stolen passwords and is notifying users.
|t||Sirin Labs launched its Android smartphone at an event in London. Sirin has promised to build a phone that had “the highest privacy settings, operated faster than any other phone, [and was] built with the best materials from around the world.” To that effect it has partnered with KoolSpan to integrate chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption. It has a Snapdragon 810 processor, 24 bands of LTE a 23.8-megapixel camera and a 5.5-inch LED 2K screen. It goes on sale June 1 at Mayfair in London and June 30 at Harrods, Knightsbridge for $13,800.||http://venturebeat.com/2016/05/31/sirin-labs-solarin/|
|p||Paypal announced it will close operations in Turkey starting June 6 after being denied a license by the nation’s financial regulator the BDDK. |
New national regulations require Paypal to keep all Turkish users information in Turkey.
Paypal told TechCrunch it, “utilizes a global payments platform that operates across more than 200 markets, rather than maintaining local payments platforms with dedicated technology infrastructure in any single country.”

|Computex kicked off today and with it, like any conference, the buzzwords have begun to fly. From the old like wearables, which Qualcomm leaned into with the Snapdrgon 1100 Wear chip meant for fitness trackers or watches for kids and the elderly and touting the buzz word battery life at up to 7 days-- to the new like VR in everything to the ridiculous like Intel’s $1723 desktop processor for gamers.||http://www.engadget.com/2016/05/31/computex-2016-day-two-roundup/|
|In the past couple of years every company was all about wearables and smart homes and TVs. And while those things have certainly not disappeared, they certainly haven't (yet?) grow to what I feel was promised by the marketing and the (possibly self induced) hype.|
Nowadays, everyone is all about chat bots and AI and VR. So the question I'd like to ask is: are those somewhat overly buzzy too? Are they really that important, or will they fade away next year and be replaced by something else?

|Pick of the day:|
|Hey Tom, this is also a tip for Jennie since she was asking about tips in using Outlook on her windows work PC.|
Outlook has a built in option to Delay Delivery, which can be set per email, or using a rule.
For instance, if you are in the US, and are regularly emailing someone in Europe, you can make a rule that any email being sent to that email address after the end of the European business day will be delayed until the next day.
You could also make a rule that all outgoing email is delayed 5 minutes, so that when you hit send and then realize you said something stupid, you can go into the outbox and stop the email from sending.

In addition to the unconventional parking scenarios, I think the (rational) need/desire for controls in self-driving cards boils down to the scenarios when the car doesn't know what to do. In these situations, I would imagine that the car would stop and signal for attention. If you have a robotic vacuum cleaner, you know what I mean. At that point, the driver would actually drive the car to a location where the automated system could take over again. This could be as punctuated as dealing with a specific obstacle or as prolonged as driving in bad weather or on snow-covered streets.
