Why Can't We Fix Puerto Rico's Power Grid?

And then the lights went out. Again. The loss of electrical power in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands after Hurricane Maria churned across the islands in September 2017 was already the second-biggest blackout in the history of power on Earth—3.4 billion lost customer-hours. But in recent weeks, various agencies were touting their success in restoring Puerto Rico’s flattened grid. The numbers were encouraging; the US Department of Energ...

The Deceptively Satisfying Micro-play of Minit

It's common to describe videogames in terms of verbs: what will its sticks and buttons and other inputs let you do? In Minit, a new game published by Devolver Digital, only two options exist. You can use the object you're currently holding, and you can die. And if you don't press the die button, it'll happen anyway, no player input required. In fact, in Minit you die at least once— every sixty seconds on the dot. There's a timer. Death ever...

Paul Ryan's Eventual Exit From Congress Tops This Week's Internet News

If the first week of April felt a little (comparatively speaking) light on political melodrama, last week made up for it, and how. Whether it was a Republican former congressman being found guilty of 23 felonies , the National Enquirer apparently buying a rumor about President Trump to bury it or the president considering rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership months after leaving it, there was a lot going on last week. And that’s not even...

Within Facebook, a Sense of Relief Over the Zuckerberg Hearings

About two hours, or 20 percent, into Mark Zuckerberg’s marathon testimony before Congress this week, the Facebook CEO had a slightly awkward exchange with senator John Cornyn (R-Texas). Cornyn wanted to know what happens to people’s data when they delete their accounts. Zuckerberg responded that Facebook deletes their data. But Cornyn continued, “How about third parties that you have contracted with to use some of that underlying informatio...

Despite Zuckerberg Pledge, Facebook Fights State Privacy Laws

During Mark Zuckerberg's first day of hearings on Capitol Hill Tuesday, Senator Richard Durbin, D-Illinois, tried to ask the Facebook CEO a question about his state. "Illinois has a Biometric Information Privacy Act, or the state does, which is to regulate the commercial use of facial, voice, finger and iris scans and the like. We're now in a fulsome debate on that. And I'm afraid Facebook has come down to the position of trying to carve ou...

Four Questions Congress Should Actually Ask Mark Zuckerberg

Follow Mark Zuckerberg's Wednesday testimony here. The hearing is scheduled to start at 10 am EDT. Mark Zuckerberg testified for almost five hours Tuesday in a televised Senate hearing about Facebook’s privacy practices and data abuse. More than 40 Senators had five minutes each to ask questions.

How to Check If Cambridge Analytica Could Access Your Facebook Data

In 2014, a researcher named Alexander Kogan created a personality quiz that 270,000 Facebook users would go onto install. From those downloads alone, he was able to harvest the personal information of up to 87 million people , according to Facebook's most recent estimate. He then passed that data along to Trump-affiliated political firm Cambridge Analytica , which would use it to target voters in the 2016 presidential election. Now Facebook...

Space Photos of the Week: The Case of the Missing Dark Matter

We see a lot of space photos each week and they are always beautiful and unique. But some images make you stop and ponder how stunning and strange the universe really is. Last week brought news of an odd galaxy called NGC 1052-DF2 that is 65 million light years from Earth. It’s not your usual galaxy. It’s not shaped like one , really—just a nebulous faint blob of darkness with some visible stars. Yet this one is remarkable for other reasons...

Cyberinsurance Tries to Tackle the Unpredictable World of Hacks

In the aftermath of the Equifax data breach last year that exposed personal information of more than 145 million people, analysis firm Property Claim Services estimated that cyberinsurance would cover roughly $125 million of Equifax’s losses from the incident. It’s uncertain whether Equifax will actually receive that much money; insurance claims can take a long time to investigate, process, and pay out. But it was a reminder of the increasi...

Facebook's New Data-Sharing Policies Are Crashing Tinder

Today, Facebook made a series of changes to the kinds of data third-party apps can collect from the social network. The adjustments are designed to limit the information apps can gather from users following the Cambridge Analytica scandal , which Facebook now says affected 87 million users, up from the "approximately" 270,000 initially reported by the social media giant in March. The new policies appear to be affecting the performance of th...
