    The 5 Best Canned Wines to Drink Right Now

    It’s summer in North America — the temperatures are high, and with them, the need for refreshment (with alcohol). Alongside the hazy ales and myriad hard seltzers, you may have noticed an influx of refreshing wine cans in your local grocer’s refrigeration station, candy-colored Easter eggs of vinous refreshment just waiting for you to pop the tab. It’s never been a better time to keep an open mind when it comes to wine ensconced in aluminum. Canned wine is nothing new; mankind has endeavored to put wine in cans for decades, from French soldiers drinking tinned wine in World War I to the California moscatel brand Vin-Tin-Age, which debuted in…

    Don’t eat that! How a mayor in Japan got in trouble for biting an Olympic gold medal

    The Tokyo 2020 Twitter account warned athletes earlier in the Olympic Games the medals aren’t edible. But that hasn’t stopped the mayor of Nagoya, Japan from trying the theory out — and landing himself in some trouble. At an event to celebrate Japanese softball pitcher Miu Goto’s gold medal triumph, Nagoya’s mayor Takashi Kawamura put the medal around his neck and then bit down on it. This was all carried out against a backdrop warning people to socially distance and respect hygiene to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The act of biting down on medals has been common practice in the Games, but Toyota — the sponsors of the Red…

    Some Republicans Have Changed Their Messaging On The COVID-19 Vaccine. Is It Too Little, Too Late?

    According to local media, when reporters asked House Minority Whip Steve Scalise in the beginning of April when he planned to get a COVID-19 vaccine, he replied, “Soon.” A month later, when asked again, his sense of urgency — or lack thereof — remained the same. Then in July, something changed. Sitting inside a clinic in his home state of Louisiana, the No. 2 Republican in the House posed for a photo as he got vaccinated at last. Four days later, at a press conference outside the U.S. Capitol, he encouraged others to do so too. “I have high confidence in it,” Scalise said of the vaccine. “I got it…

    Robinhood Sinks After Wild Rally as Investors File to Sell Stock

    (Bloomberg) — Robinhood Markets Inc. tumbled after shareholders filed to sell nearly 100 million Class A common shares less than a week after its initial public offering.

The listed sellers are some of Robinhood’s biggest investors and together combine to hold more than one-third of the firm’s current outstanding shares. The largest of…

    Google 的新一代 Nest Cam 与 Doorbell 可以靠电池运作

    Google Google 今天更新了 Nest 产品线,带来了两款靠电池运作的新品、一款自带泛光灯的有线 Nest Cam 和一款更新版的有线 Nest Cam。两款无线产品中,首先是无线版的 Nest Cam,具备 130 度的视野,并且可以以 1080p 分辨率录制 30fps 的影像。它并且具备了 6x 的数码变焦及夜视能力,可以看到约 6 公尺外的景象,还有 IP54 的防水防尘,室外室内皆能安装。 Google 至于无线的 Doorbell 则是门铃式的监视摄影机,有着 989 x 1,280 的分辬率、30fps 的帧数、6x 数码变焦及 145 度的视野,夜视能力则是大约 3 公尺远。这分辨率稍微有些奇特,但其实就是直立的 3:4,让你能看到访客的全身。两台的电力长短取决于有多少录影事件,以及温度和设定等变化。Google 表示 Doorbell 充电一次能使用约 6 个月的时间,而 Nest Cam 则是可使用长达 7 个月。Doorbell 在电力用尽后可以透过 USB-C 充电,而 Nest Cam 则是透过 USB-A 转接器充电。 Google 两个无线产品都能储存最多 3 小时的视频历史,想要加长的话,就要订阅 Nest Aware 了。和 Google 旗下的其他 Nest 产品(包括电池版的 Nest Cam)不同,Doorbell 就算订阅了 Nest Aware Plus,也不提供全时录影的能力。但 Doorbell 本身就算断网了,也还能在机器上储存约 1 小时的影像,取决于访客来访的频繁度,大约是一个礼拜或更长的时间。待 Doorbell 重新连上网路后,会再将画面上传到云去。 在有线产品的部份,分别是升级版的普通 Nest Cam,还有首度搭载了泛光灯的版本。它们都有内建于机器上的机器学习系统,可以分辨人、车与动物;而 Doorbell 还能侦测并辨识近达离门约 20 公分的包裹。Google 为了训练这 AI,使用了多达 4,000 万张的影像,来涵盖各种环境与光照情况。由于这些辨识系统是做在机器上的,因此不用订阅云服务就能享用了。如果订阅 Nest Aware 云服务的话,则是可以额外自行设定「熟悉脸孔」了。 Google 所有的 Nest Cam 和 Doorbell 皆能与 Google Home app 和其他像是 Nest 智能显示器等装置协同使用,Google 并表示 Nest 相机所有的数据都是加密的。电池版的…

    McAfee a Leader in The Forrester Wave™ Unstructured Data Security Platforms

    The mass migration of employees working from home in the last 14 months has accelerated the digital transformation of businesses.  Cloud applications are no longer a “nice to have,” they are now essential to ensure that businesses survive.  This introduces new security challenges in being able to locate and control sensitive data across all the potential exfiltration vectors regardless of whether they are in the cloud; on premise via managed or unmanaged machines.  Attempting to control these vectors through multiple products results in unnecessary cost and complexity. McAfee anticipated and responded to this trend, solving all these challenges through the launch of our MVISION Unified Cloud Edge solution in 2020.…

    NSA, CISA release Kubernetes hardening guidance following Colonial Pipeline, other attacks

    Earlier this week, the US National Security Agency (NSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)  issued a joint document entitled Kubernetes Hardening Guidance. Kubernetes is an open-source orchestration system that relies on containers to automate the deployment, scaling and management of applications, usually in a cloud environment. According to the most recent State of Kubernetes Security report by RedHat, more than half the security professionals surveyed said they delayed deploying Kubernetes applications into production due to security. In addition, almost all the security respondents said they had one security incident in their Kubernetes environment during the past year. Underscoring the depth of security concerns surrounding Kubernetes, 59% of…
