Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Another Pretty Good Review Of The Chuwi LapBook Air

By Tim

I am a huge fan of the notebook in this review and I will eventually be purchasing one. This review comes to us from Linus on the TechLineHD channel on YouTube.

He seems to be a very honest and straightforward reviewer and does point out the shortcoming of the device as well as all the reasons you might want to get your hands on one of these.

This notebook is still on sale at Banggood for roughly $380 so make sure to visit their site to see current pricing.

Be aware this is not a Dell or HP or Lenovo, but also be aware that the money you would save for a useful notebook over those high-end brands can get you a 256 GB SSD and perhaps a few hundred more in gasoline to fuel your car to get to work each day.

As I always try to do when sharing a video, I recommend this channel and I would highly suggest subscribing if you like this kind of tech info that is darned honest and gets to the point without the frills.

So all of that being said below you will find the video.

That is all for now,

Tim

New Video: Figuring Out Connection Timed Out Errors, No Joy So Far

By Tim

So for the last few weeks I keep getting blocked from my sites here. At first I thought it was AT&T since that is my only home connection, but lately I am getting the same issue using Mediacom cable at work.

So this is not strictly a DNS or routing issue. The only real cure to get connected again is to either use a VPN which works easily, or reboot either the router at work or the phone at home. Neither of which are a viable alternative.

I honestly do not have a clue as to why this issue is occurring, but it is damned annoying! So below you will find the video I shot to demonstrate this issue and show you exactly what is happening.

Any comments or feedback are appreciated! Just don’t spam the site here with your comments, just leave a tech tip or register and then post a comment. As usual, we are still looking for donations to get cable into the apartment here so I can begin hosting tabletserver.com on a tablet or other local device again! So below is the link to our PayPal donations page, followed by the video!

Donate Now!

That is all for now,

Tim

Amazon Alexa Ready to Arrive on Windows 10 PCs in Q1 2018

By Radu Iorga

Amazon Alexa is ready to expand and arrive on multiple Windows 10 PCs over Q1 2018, or at least so are claiming sources from ZDNet. Last we heard there was talk about integration between Cortana and Alexa, which was delayed last month. Amazon is dead set on bringing its virtual assistant to the Windows 10 PCs this year.

They announced that at CES 2018, but somehow it flew under the radar. Mary Jo Foley discovered some extra info about the integration via an official support page. Amazon is saying that Alexa for PC should work just like on the Echo devices. This means you can use the digital assistant to set reminders, calendar appointments, read the news (or have them read to you), have ebooks read to you and shop from Amazon. You can ask for definitions, ask it to play tunes and simply search the web for info.

One can also control the smart home via the same assistant. Developers can create new Alexa skills, but there are also limitations, as shown in the chart below. Alexa on PC can’t listen to Spotify, Pandora, or TuneIn Radio and it’ll perform free voice calls to the US, Mexico and Canada. Partnerships include select Windows 10 PCs from Acer, HP and Lenovo and they’ll start from Q1 2018, exclusively for the US market.

The digital assistant doesn’t need extra microphones or speakers to work, so that’s a plus. If you’re interested, you can sign up here to be notified on new information about Alexa for PC.

OnePlus got pwned, exposed up to 40,000 users to credit card fraud

By Ron Amadeo

Enlarge / If you bought directly from OnePlus in the last two months or so, double-check your credit statements.

Earlier this week, numerous reports of credit card fraud started pouring in from OnePlus users. On the company’s forums, customers said that credit cards used to purchase a OnePlus smartphone recently were also seeing bogus charges, so OnePlus launched an investigation into the reports. It’s now a few days later, and the company has admitted that its servers were compromised—”up to 40k users” may have had their credit card data stolen.

OnePlus has posted an FAQ on the incident. “One of our systems was attacked,” the post reads. “A malicious script was injected into the payment page code to sniff out credit card info while it was being entered.” OnePlus believes the script was functional from “mid-November 2017” to January 11, 2018, and it captured credit card numbers, expiration dates, and security codes that were typed into the site during that time. Users that paid via PayPal or a previously-entered credit card information are not believed to be affected.

OnePlus says it “cannot apologize enough for letting something like this happen.” The company is contacting accounts it believes to have been affect via email, and OnePlus says it is “working with our current payment providers to implement a more secure credit card payment method, as well as conducting an in-depth security audit.”

Malicious Chrome extension is next to impossible to manually remove

By Dan Goodin

(credit: Malwarebytes)

Proving once again that Google Chrome extensions are the Achilles heel of what’s arguably the Internet’s most secure browser, a researcher has documented a malicious add-on that tricks users into installing it and then is nearly impossible for most to manually uninstall. It was available for download on Google servers until Wednesday, 19 days after it was privately reported to Google security officials, a researcher said.

Once installed, an app called “Tiempo en colombia en vivo” prevents users from accessing the list of installed Chrome extensions by redirecting requests to chrome://apps/?r=extensions instead of chrome://extensions/, the page that lists all installed extensions and provides an interface for temporarily disabling or uninstalling them. Malwarebytes researcher Pieter Arntz said he experimented with a variety of hacks—including disabling JavaScript in the browser, starting Chrome with all extensions disabled, and renaming the folder where extensions are stored—none of them worked. Removing the extension proved so difficult that he ultimately advised users to run the free version of Malwarebytes and let it automatically remove the add-on.

When Arntz installed the extension on a test machine, Chrome spontaneously clicked on dozens of YouTube videos, an indication that inflating the number of views was among the things it did. The researcher hasn’t ruled out the possibility that the add-on did more malicious things because the amount of obfuscated JavaScript it contained made a comprehensive analysis too time consuming. The researcher provided additional details in a blog post published Thursday.
