C’est ce dont est persuadé Sherif Hashim, un développeur égyptien qui a réussi à pirater et déverrouiller la dernière version de l’iPhone. Lorsqu’il a voulu connecter son téléphone à la boutique en ligne d’Apple, l’informaticien a vu apparaître sur son écran le message suivant : “Cet identifiant Apple a été désactivé pour des raisons de sécurité”.À lire aussiLe baladeur : du walkman au MP3… 30 ans d’évolutionUn autre hacker, connu sous le pseudo de iH8Sn0w et ayant développé le logiciel Sn0wbreeze qui permet de débloquer l’iPhone et l’iPod sous Windows, affirme lui aussi avoir vu son compte désactivé par Apple.La firme de Cupertino semble donc être bien décidée à dresser une liste noire et à punir les pirates, même si les bannir de l’App Store ne les empêchera pas de jailbreaker l’iPhone.Le 17 février 2010 à 09:51 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgUn bébé wombat recueilli par l’Homme, découvrez les imagesAustralie – Une petite femelle wombat devenue orpheline dans la poche dorsale de sa mère a été sauvée par une amoureuse de la nature. Celle-ci s’est chargée de recueillir le petit animal afin qu’il puisse bénéficier de tous les soins nécessaires.Karmann, c’est son nom, a été sauvée par une automobiliste qui a trouvé la maman wombat mourante dans le comté de Gippsland Est. Cette dernière avait été fauchée par une voiture. Le petit être a tout de suite été conduit au Warrandyte Wildlife Shelter à Melbourne où il a passé trois mois en soins intensifs. Sa température est régulièrement contrôlée et, malgré l’absence de sa mère, la petite femelle désormais âgée de trois mois et demi a progressivement pris du poids grâce aux six rations de nourriture quotidiennes qu’elle reçoit. L’équipement destiné à prendre soin de Karmann a été acheté grâce à une subvention gouvernementale et aux généreuses donations versées suite aux feux de forêt qui ont ravagé l’Australie l’année dernière.A la différence des autres marsupiaux, les wombats ont une poche dans le dos, une particularité qui permet d’éviter que le petit ne reçoive de la terre lorsque la mère creuse le sol. Les bébés wombats ne sont pas censés quitter la poche avant l’âge de sept mois. C’est pourquoi Karmann est maintenue dans un incubateur et soignée avec tant d’attention. Pour découvrir les photos de Karmann : https://www.maxisciences.com/wombat/karmann-le-bebe-wombat-sauve-de-la-mort_art6823.htmlLe 11 avril 2010 à 13:02 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgLe vote électronique plus que jamais d’actualité aux USAÉtats-Unis – Les élections de mi-mandat, qui visent à remplacer un tiers du Sénat, la chambre des représentants et quarante gouverneurs, ont lieu aujourd’hui aux États-Unis. La nouveauté cette année ? L’émergence du vote électronique. 33 des 50 États américains peuvent en effet voter sur Internet.Voter par courriel, télécopie ou directement en ligne : les résidents des 33 États concernés peuvent dorénavant accomplir leur acte citoyen sans avoir à se déplacer. L’objectif de ce nouveau système de vote électronique : améliorer le taux de participation au scrutin.Alors qu’il est désormais en place aux USA et qu’il devrait concerner plus d’États dans le futur, un point d’interrogation demeure : quid de la sécurité de ces systèmes, également utilisés dans d’autres pays ? À lire aussiQuand des Américains assistent à la naissance d’un bébé phoque sur une plageSelon l’AFP, une équipe de spécialistes de l’université du Michigan n’a eu aucun mal à infiltrer le système lors d’un test effectué sur un programme pilote de vote sur Internet, à Washington. Ils ont ainsi pu modifier les bulletins de vote et changer les mots de passe. “Nous avons trouvé un accès au code en moins de trois heures”, explique Alex Haldeman, professeur de l’université qui dirigeait le groupe d’étudiants “pirates”. “En 36 heures nous avions pris le contrôle du système”.Pire encore, ce professeur a découvert que d’autres pirates informatiques avaient eux aussi essayé de prendre le contrôle de ce système, y compris depuis l’Iran et la Chine. Il préconise le vote à la manière traditionnelle : les bons vieux bulletins en papier. “Ceux qui ont le plus étudié la question de savoir comment mettre en place des systèmes fiables sont ceux qui jugent impossible de se passer du papier, étant donné les limites actuelles de la technologie”, ajoute Alex Haldeman.Cet épisode rappelle le dysfonctionnement catastrophique des cartes à voter perforées en Floride lors de la présidentielle de 2000, ou encore la polémique autour des machines à voter électroniques. Celles-ci ne laissent aucune trace écrite et donc aucun moyen de recompter les voix.Le 2 novembre 2010 à 15:41 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Ses nouveaux modèles marcheront avec la nouvelle version d’Android, baptisée Honeycomb.Concurrent direct d’Apple, Samsung est entré dans une bataille juridique importante contre le géant américain, suite au lancement de son smartphone Galaxy S2.

first_img iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro Have More Cameras, More ProblemsApple Arcade Launches Next Week Stay on target Apple fans and those who must find the perfect gift for Apple fans, rejoice! The iPhone manufacturer has announced a massive tome in the form of an Apple-themed coffee table book that’ll cost a pretty penny: $299, to be exact.The book, clearly for diehard Apple fans only, is called Designed by Apple in California, and the hardcover volume is bound in linen, 13″ x 16.25″ large, and filled with 450 photographs of various Apple products. A smaller, more compact edition with the dimensions of 10.20″ x 12.75″ will run you $199 if the $299 entry fee is too high.The images populating the book are meant to show off 20 years of Apple design, with items varying from the Apple Watch to the Apple AirPort. Shot by Andrew Zuckerman, they’re meant to act as, chief designer Jony Ive described in a press release, “a gentle gathering of many of the products the team has designed over the years.”Apple is publishing the book on its own and dedicating it to the memory of Steve Jobs. If you’re interested in picking up one of the books, which would shock and surprise any Apple fan in your life who boasts one of every bit of the hardware collection available, it’s out right now via Apple.com and select Apple Stores.There’s a rare collection of Apple Stores where the book will be sold, but where it’s available for sale you can also thumb through the pages to get an idea of what you’ll receive with the full package whenever you finally get your hands on the book.It might be a bit pricey for what you get, but when it comes to Apple products you are usually paying for quality, and this book does look like a massive tome. The jury is out on whether or not it really needs to be $299, but for true Apple fans, it’s likely worth its weight in gold.last_img read more

first_imgStay on target MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Is Wind River good?Yes.What’s it about?Set almost entirely in the frozen wilderness in and around Wyoming’s impoverished Wind River Indian Reservation, our story follows Jeremy Renner as a bitterly divorced U.S. Fish & Wildlife agent tasked with controlling the encroachment of large predators into the Reservation. He maintains an uneasy but respectful kinship with the Indigenous Arapaho residents who just so happen to include his former in-laws.When he discovers the frozen body a young woman from the Reservation apparently raped, murdered and inexplicably collapsed miles from home (who’s parents are old friends of his), he offers to lend his tracking and hunting skills to aid in the search for the killer. This is in part because the FBI is so dismissive of crimes against Native Americans. They only send one inexperienced agent (Elizabeth Olsen) to work the case, but also because he lost his own daughter years earlier under similarly unsolved circumstances.I bet I know where that’s going…Well, I won’t spoil, but you might not. Despite the lurid setup and the pervasive sense of foreboding dread hanging over the proceedings, Wind River is that rare crime thriller that’s about solving a crime but not necessarily working out some elaborate “mystery.” The consistent theme of the film is how choked and stifling life is made on the Reservation merely by way of limited resources and outsider apathy.How does that work?Simply put, there just aren’t enough people around for a killer to go unfound for long. And rather than chasing down clues or playing games with some sociopath criminal mastermind the “obstacles” for what should be a straightforward investigation are the elements battling them as well. The lack of manpower and the sheer amount of distance between the heroes and the depressingly short list of suspects, witnesses and locations they’ll need to visit to work things out. It’s a thriller made up of introspection, quiet character development and the despair of inevitability as opposed to the horrors of the unknown.Is it only depressing, or is there intrigue or excitement as well?Well… it’s a very well made downer, yes. But for a filmmaker whose only other directing credit featured random people beating each other to death in an underlit room, Sheridan (backed up by mumblecore-indie veteran Ben Richardson on cinematography) delivers a visually stunning movie that finds real beauty in the harsh and unrelenting winter wilderness and the crushing poverty of the neglected Reservation itself. Probably more than a fourth of this movie involves trucks, people and snowmobiles gradually pushing their way from one blighted locale to another, and it all looks shockingly gorgeous. Also, while far from an “action film,” Sheridan proves himself a skilled hand at gunplay and fisticuffs – specifically a nauseatingly-intense brawl and a pair of ultra violent shootouts that latter of which is probably the most badass “realistic” gunfight in a few years.It’s weird that this is a murder-mystery set on an Indian Reservation, but the heroes are both White people, isn’t it?It certainly compels one to raise an eyebrow; I’ll say that much. This is all while acknowledging that as it’s a perfectly valid criticism to raise.  There’s a deliberate dynamic of Olsen’s earnest but clueless outsider playing off Renner. He’s a “go-between” who has nothing in common with her but is also still held at arm’s length by even those he considers family. This serves the scenario well and (for what it’s worth) they both wind up consistently upstaged by the legendary Indigenous actor Graham Greene as a quietly intimidating police chief who’s more or less the adult in the room.What are the down sides?There’s some clunky dialogue in the talkier parts. Particularly whenever Renner is given to wax poetically about the resilience and strength of his Arapaho friends and family; and a critical moment in the story is rendered a bit hazy by a narrative time-jump and perspective-switch that feels oddly jarring because it’s the only flourish of its type in an otherwise straightforward film.Is this finally the movie to prove Renner as a movie star outside of the Avengers franchise?It could be. He’s given ample to room to remind us what compelling presence he can be with the right material: The film is a bit too serious to wear the label, but his hard-bitten character often seems to have ridden over from the world of some extra-bleak Spaghetti Western – and it’s a mode that suits him.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

The world’s most amazing natural light show might just be visible over the northern U.S. and Canada this weekend.Due to a G1 (minor) geomagnetic storm, the northern lights may appear over the U.S. this Friday, November 9, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC)Star- and sky-gazers would able to view the natural phenomenon in Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and the very northern tip of Maine.The northern lights appear in the sky on January 8, 2017 near Ester Dome mountain about 10 miles west of Fairbanks, Alaska. (Photo Credit: Lance King/Getty Images)According to the SWPC’s 3-day forecast, the alert is in effect from 4 to 7 p.m. EST on November 9 and then again from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. the same night. You are unlikely to spot anything during the first span, however, as you need very clear and dark skies to see the lights — so 10 p.m to 1 a.m. would be your best bet.Also make sure you have unobstructed view of the northern horizon, and that you are as far away as possible from any light pollution.But it’ll be worth the effort. This year will be the last chance to see the northern lights for a decade. According to NASA, the sun is almost about to enter the Solar Minimum phase, a period in the solar cycle where the sun enters a dormant phase and energy ejected from the solar surface is at an all-time low. This means the northern lights will be dimmer and occur less frequently over the next decade.Would rather see the northern lights from the comfort of your own warm couch?

first_imgClarification: Mr. Closser was sentenced to 90 days but was given credit for three days already served and 87 days were suspended.________________________________________________________________________________A man who grabbed a child at an area hospital after reportedly mistaking him as his son was sentenced Thursday to 90 days in jail but received credit for time served.Clayton G. Closser, 38, of Lyle entered an “in re Barr” plea in Clark County Superior Court to disorderly conduct in connection with the March 6 incident at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center. The plea allows a defendant to plead guilty to a lesser related charge he didn’t commit in order to avoid conviction for a greater offense.Closser appeared for the hearing out of custody.His attorney, Jack Green, told the court that his client was suffering from hallucinations at the time of the incident due to alcohol withdrawal and a bad reaction from an anti-seizure medication. He described the incident as “truly a freak situation.”Closser checked himself into a mental health and addiction treatment facility March 1 and was undergoing the detox process when he was sent to the hospital because of complications. He was subsequently discharged but was sent back to the hospital when his issues persisted, Green explained.Clark County sheriff’s deputies were called about 8:15 p.m. to the hospital at 2211 N.E. 139th St. for a possible attempted kidnapping. The grandmother of an 8-year-old boy reported that a man in the emergency room grabbed her grandson. The man, later identified as Closser, repeatedly told the boy to tell people he was his son, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in the case.last_img read more

first_imgNelson MannehMomodou Jammeh the Public Relation Officer (PRO) of the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH) said supporting a hospital in any form is saving a life.PRO Jammeh made these statements during the handing over of donated materials from the National Assembly Member for Banjul North Constituency Honourable Ousman Sillah.Jammeh said the Banjul North MP has a special interest in their hospital and he always comes to their aid whenever the need arises.“The whole process that led to this donation began when the MP for Banjul North visited the hospital to see its progress and the challenges and he realizes that we need curtains,” he said.He said the MP then sent a team to the hospital to make a survey and identify the necessity of the hospital which among them is the curtains donated.Hon: Sillah the National Assembly Member for Banjul North said EFSTH is the final source of hope when it comes to health service delivery in this county and it is indeed in need of support.“The health approach in this country is curative and that approach is very expensive that is why health is often said to be expensive,’ he said.Sillah said the reason why he is donating such items is that he went to the hospital and came to realize that this is part of their challenges.“When I went to visit the hospital, I found out that there is a ward that does not have any Curtain and I was told that all the curtains were taken for laundry and there was none for replacement, this is why I decide to donate these Curtains to at least nine wards,”Hon: Sillah also called on others to come on board and assist the hospital as some wards are adopted by parastatals but they are no longer supporting them for several reasons.Mrs. Lemon, a nurse who spoke on behalf of the Beneficial’s said the donated materials came at the appropriate time when they are most needed.“These donated curtains are well labelled and this will help us in securing them. We sometimes lose some of them because they are not marked,” she said.She said some wards in the hospital do not have curtains at all and they need them.In a similar ceremony, the Hon: MP for Banjul North continues to donate educational items to Campama Lower Basic School in Banjul.Campama Lower Basic is the former school of Hon: Sillah and he said he has an obligation to give back to the school, and as a representative he owes an obligation to the community.last_img read more
