FBI Paid Hackers to Defeat Security of Shooter's iPhone


The FBI paid hackers to break onto the iPhone of the San Bernardino shooter, according to a Tuesday news report. The bureau obtained the services of gray hats, insiders said, and apparently did not get help from Cellebrite, as earlier reports had suggested. Gray hats are hackers who sell flaws to governments or companies that make surveillance tools. “The use of bad guys by the United States government, and in fact all governments, has been going on since the beginning of time,” remarked Philip Lieberman, CEO of Lieberman Software.

Customer Service Sucks? Blame Outdated Gear


It’s a business truism that customer service can make or break customer relationships, so it stands to reason that contact centers should be considered a critical part of the enterprise and equipped accordingly. However, half of 225 global contact centers surveyed in April were using agent desktop technology that was more than five years old, Forrester noted in a report released this week. More than half of them planned to upgrade in the near future. Aging systems make it more difficult for contact center staff to deliver quality service.

43Tbps over a single fiber: World’s fastest network would let you download a movie in 0.2 milliseconds

DARPA's hollow-core photonic-bandgap optic fiber
A research group at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), which was the first to break the one-terabit barrier in 2009, has today managed to squeeze 43 terabits per second over a single optical fiber with just one laser transmitter. In a more user-friendly unit, 43Tbps is equivalent to a transfer rate of around 5.4 terabytes per second — or 5,375 gigabytes to be exact.

PS4 sales pass 7 million units, while Xbox One licks its wounds and plans a comeback

The PS4 Rhombox, with controller
Sony’s PlayStation 4 is continuing to break sales records, passing 7 million units sold as of April 6. Meanwhile, in the Xbox One camp, Microsoft has remained ominously silent, failing to release sales figures since the end of 2013. Presumably, Microsoft was waiting to see if the release of Titanfall would give the Xbox One a healthy bump in sales — but now, a month later, we have to wonder why Microsoft is still mute on the matter. Are Xbox One sales truly that embarrassing? And if so, can we expect a dramatic price drop or the release of an Xbox One bundle without Kinect?
