Yi 4K+ action camera goes on sale with 4K 60FPS video and $300 price tag

Beta News - Tue, 03/28/2017 - 16:40
Yi Technology unveiled the Yi 4K+ action camera at CES 2017 earlier this year, but the GoPro Hero5 Black rival is only now going on sale. Its claim to fame?

A Lawsuit Over Costco Golf Balls Shows Why We Can't Have Nice Things For Cheap

Slashdot.org - Tue, 03/28/2017 - 16:40
Ephrat Livni, writing for Quartz: Unless you're a golfer, you probably don't think about golf balls. But a new US lawsuit about these little-dimpled spheres has an economics lesson for all shoppers, showing why consumers have cause for concern when companies use court for sport. Costco, the wholesale membership club, rocked the golf world in 2016 when it started selling its Kirkland Signature (KS) golf balls at about $15 per dozen, a quarter to a third the price of popular top-ranked balls. Industry insiders called it a "miracle golf ball" for its great performance and low cost, and Costco sold out immediately. It's planning to release more in April. In response to the bargain ball's reception, however, Acushnet -- which makes the popular Titleist balls -- sent the membership club a threatening letter. It accused Costco of infringing on 11 patents and engaging in false advertising for claiming that KS balls meet or exceed the quality standards of leading national brands.

Outdated programs main cause for security incidents

Beta News - Tue, 03/28/2017 - 16:32
Did you update Flash on your PC? How about Java? According to cybersecurity firm Avast, you probably didn't -- and that's the number one cause of cybersecurity incidents. Avast just released a new report, entitled Avast PC Trends Report January 2017, which is based on insights from the company’s AVG TuneUp product, and says that more than half (52 percent) of the most popular PC applications have outdated installations on consumers' devices. That way, Avast claims, people are exposing their data to cybercriminals, as their machines become vulnerable to malware and ransomware.

Non-malware attacks pose greater risk to business

Beta News - Tue, 03/28/2017 - 16:04
Non-malware attacks pose more of a business risk than commodity malware attacks according to 93 percent of cybersecurity researchers.

Attitudes to artificial intelligence and machine learning are also explored in the survey. AI is considered by most cybersecurity researchers to be in its nascent stages and not yet able to replace human decision making in cybersecurity. 87 percent of the… [Continue Reading]

'Brainstorming Doesn't Work'

Slashdot.org - Tue, 03/28/2017 - 16:00
People aren't necessarily more creative in groups than alone, or vice versa, according to numerous studies. An anonymous reader shares an article: In fact, creativity needs both conditions; our performance peaks when we alternate -- first working alone, then coming together to share our ideas, then going off by ourselves again to mull over what we heard. It's a process. This is because our brains' creative engines are fueled both by quiet mind-wandering, allowing novel and unexpected connections to form, and by encountering new information, which often comes from other people. The typical brainstorm over-delivers on the latter and under-delivers on the former, which means that for lots of people, brainstorming is an utter nightmare. Introverts just feel alienated, and extroverts aren't pushed to reflect more deeply on the ideas they've batted around amongst themselves.
