  2. Windows Defender, the anti-malware software that’s built in to Windows, is going to start removing utility software that tries to scare users into upgrading, starting in March. The Windows software ecosystem has a large variety of software of dubious merit that claims to detect and diagnose faults.

  3. Intel Corp., trying to defuse concern that fixes to widespread chip security vulnerabilities will slow computers, released test results late Wednesday showing that personal computers won’t be affected much and promised more information on servers. The chipmaker published a table of data showing that older processors handled typical tasks 10 percent slower at most, after being updated with security patches. The information covered three...

  4. Amazon’s Alexa assistant was crowned “winner” of CES, the Computer Electronics Show, last year. While Amazon didn’t have a splashy presence at the show — though there was a bizarrely large Echo speaker in one hallway — the fact that so many gadget makers were pledging to bake Alexa into their products became the dominant story of CES. This year, Google, which has a... Read more about Google tries hard to keep Amazon’s Alexa from winning CES on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  5. Internet advertising firms are losing hundreds of millions of dollars following the introduction of a new privacy feature from Apple that prevents users from being tracked around the web.

  6. At last, Wi-Fi security — or lack of — is about to get its day in the sun. The Wi-Fi Alliance, an industry body made up of device makers including Apple, Microsoft, and Qualcomm, announced Monday its next-generation wireless network security standard, Wi-Fi Protected Access 3. The standard will replace WPA2, a near-two decades-old security protocol that’s built in to protect almost every wireless...

  7. For years, Comcast has been promising that it won’t violate the principles of net neutrality, regardless of whether the government imposes any net neutrality rules. That meant that Comcast wouldn’t block or throttle lawful Internet traffic and that it wouldn’t create fast lanes in order to collect tolls from Web companies that want priority access over the Comcast network. This was one of the... Read more about Paid prioritization may be coming to Comcast’s Internet service on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  8. Many people realize that smartphones track their locations. But what if you actively turn off location services, haven’t used any apps, and haven’t even inserted a carrier SIM card? Even if you take all of those precautions, phones running Android software gather data about your location and send it back to Google when they’re connected to the internet, a Quartz investigation has revealed. Since... Read more about Google Android tracks you even with location services off on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  9. With the launch of Firefox Quantum, Mozilla released what’s probably the most important update to its browser in recent years. It’s faster, lighter and you should give it a try.

  10. It’s no secret that YouTube’s algorithm for automatically flagging videos can be troublesome — recent issues have seen content creators getting their videos demonetized for seemingly no reason — but Google’s latest faux pas might hit the company a little closer to home. Google posted an ad for its new Chromebook Pixel that is getting flagged as spam, according to The Next Web. For... Read more about YouTube flags ChromeBook ad as spam on Lunarsoft.

  13. Twitter’s expansion to 280 characters is rolling out publicly today to all users in supported languages, including English. The company had first announced the controversial plan to move beyond its traditional 140 characters back in September, noting at the time how a longer character count allowed users to express more of their thoughts without running out of room to tweet. The expansion was initially available... Read more about Twitter officially expanded tweet limit to 280 characters on Lunarsoft. View the full article

  15. Facebook is reportedly testing out a pilot program to counter revenge porn that involves users sending the company nude photos of themselves that may be in others’ possession. The program, which is currently only being deployed in Australia, creates a digital thumbprint of the images, known as “hashing,” that users don’t want spread without their consent on Facebook. Once a photo is “hashed,” Facebook acts to... Read more about Facebook revenge porn protection asks users for nude photos on Lunarsoft. View the full article
