Banks in Russia, Japan, the US, and Europe have fallen victim to a massive, sophisticated malware hack, allowing the perpetrators to steal hundreds of millions of dollars since 2013. According to a Kaspersky Labs report provided to the New York Times, more than 100 banks in 30 nations have been affected by the breach, with upwards of $ 300 million stolen in the process.
youtube: yXtSnq-Nvro If you thought GIFs were just another annoying internet trend that will disappear in a year or so, you’d be wrong. There have been a number of artistic projects concerning animated GIFs, with photographers, illustrators and graphic designers all turning their hand to the craft.
Coding isn’t just for pushing pixels, as we discover when we chatted with developer Nathaniel Deal, from Atlanta. Deal is an avid coder, hacker, and maker and he focussed all of his tech skills to on one cool project: an automated Nerf Gun.
One of the oldest things I still own, an early gift from my parents, is a blue Leatherman Mini-Tool. Growing up, I used it constantly for a strange mix of projects: taking apart simple gadgets, measuring fabric for sewing, and peeling (technically) edible bark off trees to practice wilderness survival, among other things. But I also always pined for a much more traditional pre-teen luxury: a charm bracelet. These weren’t as different as they seem; they were cute, shiny, modular windows into the world of adulthood. But apparently, if I’d grown up a decade or two later, I could have had both at the same time.
We’ve known how fierce the acceleration of the Tesla Model S P85D is ever since we got to experience a lap of terror with one back in October. But this new video from DragTimes of it shaming the 2013 version in a drag race puts the power into some serious context. With advantages like dual motors and all-wheel drive, the P85D and its 691 horsepower gives the older model no chance to compete in a race off the line.
In a second video — during which the two cars race from a rolling start of 35 mph — the original P85 gets a jump and still gets beat handily by the P85D. According to DragTimes, the combination of 471 horsepower in the rear motor and 221 in the front of the P85D made it outperform its rated torque…

The logical conclusion one could draw from these two statements is that these boxes of zen Japanese sweets are beautifully delicious. The perfect snack to […]
There was never any question this week that I would be spending part of my Christmas watching The Interview. When it was announced the morning that the film would get an online release at 10 a.m. PST, without missing a beat I yelled to my mom in the next room (who I am currently visiting for the holidays) that we would have to cancel a day trip we had planned. Welcome to the hot take workshop: when a story snowballs to the proportion that the Sony hack and near-non-release of The Interview has, a certain kind of professional easily becomes a slave to the feeds and the whims of the individuals at the center of the story.
But having now finally watched Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and screenwriter Dan Sterling’s film, I can confirm with…

“The thinnest phone in the world” is a fleeting title. Like ever-more-preposterous marathon times, or the absurd number of hot dogs a single human can eat in 10 minutes on July 4th, it’s dangerous to claim to be the thinnest phone in the world because in the time it took to utter those words, someone made a phone thinner.
So I suppose I shouldn’t call the Oppo R5 definitively the thinnest phone in the world, even if Oppo does. It’s just the thinnest phone I’ve ever seen, the thinnest phone I…
