#4  Scientists Find Way of Using WiFi to Monitor People Through Walls

2 people viewing this

@tech      By silas      5 days ago

Quote:

Researchers working out of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pennsylvania (USA) have demonstrated a new way of using Machine Learning / AI and a deep neural network to map the position of human bodies, including through walls, by analysing the phase and amplitude of WiFi (wireless network) signals.

Quote:

The model they developed only requires two wireless routers, each with 3 antennas, in order to work via the regular 2.4GHz band. But you’d need to place these at opposite sides of your target and have full control over both of the units in order to gather the data. The weakness of WiFi signals also limits the range and accuracy is still an issue.

#10 amazon cartel....slaps $1 price hike on amazon music unlimited starting feb 21

4 people viewing this

@tech      By messy marv stan      2 weeks ago

Subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited in the U.S. and U.K. will have to pay a higher price for the on-demand streaming service starting in February. According to Amazon’s customer service pages in both countries, subscribers to both individual and student plans will begin paying more starting Feb. 21.

In the U.S., Amazon Music Unlimited will increase from $9.99 to $10.99 for individual subscribers and climb from $4.99 to $5.99 for subscribers to the student plan. Likewise, U.K. prices will increase from 9.99 pounds to 10.99 pounds for individual subscribers and from 4.99 pounds to 5.99 pounds for student subscribers


The e-commerce giant’s decision follows Apple’s move in October to charge higher prices for Apple Music as well as other cloud-based entertainment platforms and services.

Apple Music also raised individual subscriptions from $9.99 to $10.99 per month in the U.S. It also increased the price of family plans, which offers up to six accounts under a single subscription, from $14.99 to $16.99 per month.

Deezer, a small player in the U.S., raised the price of individual plans to $10.99 per month in 2022





In May 2022, Amazon raised the price of Amazon Music Unlimited for Prime subscribers from $7.99 to $8.99 per month, and from $79 to $89 annually.

Spotify, the largest music subscription service, could soon follow suit. On the heels of Apple’s announcement, CEO Daniel Ek said during the company’s Oct. 25 earnings call that a U.S. price increase “is one of the things we would like to do.” Spotify has not raised its standard price from $9.99 since launching in the U.S. in 2011.

#11 warner bros $50 billion in debt.....slaps hbo max users with $1 price hike starting today

4 people viewing this

@tech      By messy marv stan      2 weeks ago

visit this link https://www.lightreading. .. d/d-id/782692?


Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) said it has raised the monthly price of HBO Max, its marquee premium streaming service, for the first time since it was launched in May 2020

Starting today, the price for HBO Max's ad-free service in the US rises $1, from $14.99 to $15.99 per month (plus applicable fees). People with existing HBO Max subscriptions will get the new, higher rate effective their next billing cycle on or after February 11, 2023, the company said.






The increase prices HBO Max above Netflix's standard, ad-free tier, which costs $15.49 per month. Similar subscription plans from Hulu ($14.99), Paramount+ ($9.99) and NBCU's Peacock ($9.99) also cost less than HBO Max.

But HBO Max is far from alone in the price hike club among entertainment streaming services. Last fall, Apple TV+'s price jumped from $4.99 per month to $6.99, followed by an increase for the ad-free Disney+ service – from $7.99 per month to $10.99 – as part of a wider change in Disney's price structure for premium streaming services.

WBD reasoned that the $1 per month increase – a rise of about 6.6% – will enable the media giant to invest in "providing even more culture-defining programming and improving our customer experience for all users."

Variety points out that WBD had already been seeking ways to cut back on expenses ahead of the price hike, including the removal of select shows and seasons of shows and the cancellation of original series Minx

Though WBD says the price hike will be plowed into content investment, from a broader standpoint, some industry watchers expect overall content investment to slow down in 2023 as media giants look to rein in costs amid sluggish household spending and advertising investment

#12 comcast cartel....will slap some victims with over $800 in fees this year

4 people viewing this

@tech      By messy marv stan      2 weeks ago





visit this link https://www.google.com/am .. -2023/%3famp=1


Do you have Comcast’s Xfinity TV and Internet service? Are you ready to pay over $800 in fees in 2023? You may soon be paying that and maybe more every year in fees on top of their monthly service plan.

Recently it was announced that Comcast would be raising the fees on a wide range of plans.





Comcast’s Xfinity Broadcast TV Fee is going up 11% this year to $21.30. Back in 2016, these fees were just $5 a month.

RSN fees are also going up in Philadelphia to $13.35 a month, a 5% jump. This is up from just $3 a month back in 2016.

The cost of a TV box and remote will now be $10 a month, a 17% increase from $8.50 just a month ago.

Modem rentals for internet customers will now cost you $15 a month






All of this is on top of your base package that can cost as much as $99.99 a month just for TV, according to Seniorliving.org


All of these fees over the course of a year will add up to $715.80. It could be even higher as this a*sumes you are only paying for one TV box.

If you have two TV boxes, your yearly fees will top $835. That is also before you pay for taxes and other fees imposed by the local, state, and federal governments


In total, the cost for TV and internet from Comcast could top $2,000 a year for some customers with these fees.

As inflation grows, many Americans are looking for areas to cut back. It is no wonder that TV is increasingly one of the areas they are looking to cut back. $2,000 is a significant portion of many Americans’ yearly budgets

#13 google.......is allegedly working on apple airtags competitor

2 people viewing this

@tech      By messy marv stan      2 weeks ago

visit this link https://www.neowin.net/ne .. gs-competitor/




Google is purportedly working on a tracking tag that could compete with the likes of Apple's AirTags and Tile trackers, according to Android developer Kuba Wojciechowski.

For those unaware, tracking tags are items that you attach to devices or equipment such as keys, wallets, cars, or even your pets. This makes it easier to keep track of them and prevent theft. Some people have been misusing these items to stalk people, however, resulting in a lawsuit filed last December.

Wojciechowski recently discovered references showing that Google is working on support for locator tags in Fast Pair, a feature in Android that automatically discovers Bluetooth accessories in close proximity. They linked to a tweet by Mishaal Rahman of Esper

According to Wojciechowski, the tracking tag apparently has the codename "grogu," and is also sometimes referred to as "groguaudio" or "GR10" within Google. The device, which will be developed by the Nest Team, will come with an onboard speaker for alerts, be available in a variety of colors, and offer support for ultra-wide band and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE). This helps ensure accurate item tracking without consuming a lot of battery power.

Wojciechowski currently doesn't know the exact date when Google will launch its own tracking tags. However, they did suggest that Google will probably announce the product at Google I/O Developer Conference and then launch it at the company's annual fall event, alongside new Google Pixel devices

#17 Cloud Security Guide For Beginners: Benefits of DevOps

3 people viewing this

+28
  @tech      By OrganizedChaos      3 weeks ago



1. Shorten Production Cycles
Siloed development and operations teams extend the production cycle unnecessarily. It becomes harder for both teams to collaborate on the processes required to get the software operational. Close collaboration through the elimination of silos speeds up innovation and development.

2. Increase Deployment Success Rates
Programming errors is one of the leading reasons why a deployment fails. The frequent release of code occasioned with the DevOps approach ensures problem detection at an earlier stage. With dev and ops teams working together, recovery time is a lot shorter.

3. Improved Collaboration and Communication
DevOps has revolutionized software development culture. This is because when all stakeholder teams take part in the development process, they focus on a common goal instead of working with different objectives. More synergy improves communication. Better communication leads to seamless development cycles, quick error discovery/resolution, and faster route to market.

4. Increased Efficiency Through Automation
Continuous integration reduces manual processes in developing and testing. Specific tasks in the development process cannot be automated. DevOps focusses the developers’ attention on those tasks, leaving the other tasks to tools that can accelerate development, such as:

Cloud-based platforms. The use of hardware resources during development ties up relevant system infrastructure unnecessarily. Scalable infrastructures like cloud-based platforms resolve this problem, resulting in speedier processes.
Build acceleration tools for faster compilation of code.
Parallel workflow processes, for smoother operation of the continuous delivery chain.

5. Work with Good Developers
Poor code is all too common, though sadly, users arrive at this realization when it’s too late. The fact is, some developers are good at what they do, while others have poor coding skills. DevOps has a solution to this problem. Frequent a*sessment makes it easier to a*sess the performance of developers within a DevOps team so that each team member is tasked with responsibilities most suited to their skills.

DevOps recognizes that software creation is not all about coding. There are many other roles involved in the process. A team member who is terrible at coding could be good at any of the different roles, and vice versa. Re-tasking team members earlier in the process prevent wastage of time and resources.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is Car Cam powered?
Ring Car Cam connects to your vehicle’s OBD-II port and is powered by the car’s battery. Car Cam has a power management system which will turn itself off in advance of ever depleting the car's battery. For safety, only use Car Cam in vehicles where the OBD-II port is located to the left of the driver’s side dash. You can confirm your car's OBD-II port location here. For help locating your car’s OBD-II port, please check your vehicle’s owner’s manual.

Does Car Cam work when the car is turned off?
Ring Car Cam remains vigilant while the car is parked, or off, and can continue to help keep your car secure to work in a low-power mode. Car Cam will "wake up" to record triggered events like motion detected.

Will Car Cam drain my car battery?
Ring Car Cam goes into a low-power mode when the vehicle is parked to draw even less power from the battery between uses. Although the device will monitor your car’s battery level and shut down when needed to help preserve the car battery, you should make sure your battery is healthy or else you will not be able to use the device.

Will I still be notified about activity in or around my car when Car Cam is not connected to my home wifi?
A Ring Protect Go subscription is required to stay notified about and check in on your your car when it’s on the go. Otherwise, if events occur while your car is away from your home wifi, your notifications will be queued up and delivered to you once Car Cam re-connects to your home wifi. See here for more information on Ring Protect Go subscriptions.

Does Car Cam save my videos so I can view them later?
Car Cam can save videos locally to the device, which can be played back in the Ring App. To download or share these videos, or store video highlights in the cloud to access anytime up to 180 days, subscription to Ring Protect Go is required, sold separately.

What privacy features are included with Car Cam?
For privacy inside the car, at any time, flip up the built-in Privacy Cover to turn off the mic and block the cabin-facing camera.

You can also disable location sharing at any time through the Ring App.

How does Traffic Stop works?
To record a crucial moment with Traffic Stop, say “Alexa, record”, and your Ring Car Cam will capture the scene for up to 20 minutes, even if you are parked with the car turned off. Additionally, with a Protect Go subscription, the beginning of the event will also be uploaded to the cloud.

Can I set a different home wifi for Car Cam than my other Ring devices?
Yes! Ring Car Cam wifi does not have to be on the same network as other Ring devices, but is limited to only one wifi network at a time. Wifi settings can be changed in the Ring App.

If I have an existing Ring Protect Plus or Pro subscription, do I still need to subscribe to Ring Protect Go?
Yes, Ring Protect Go is the only subscription plan that supports Ring Car Cam.

1Viewing resolution may vary depending on connectivity, viewing device, and viewing format. See Video Tech Specs for details.

2A Ring Protect Go subscription, sold separately, is required to use Live View, Two-Way Talk, Real-Time Notifications, and GPS Locator over LTE when the Car Cam is away from home wifi, and to use the Cloud Highlights (including Cloud Highlights for Traffic Stop). Ring Protect Go is only available in the U.S.
