Pioneer Ultra HD Blu-ray burners pack 4K playback, but good luck meeting the PC requirements

pioneer_BDRs

A new pair of Blu-ray drives from Panasonic promise enhanced audio playback and full support for UHD Blu-ray discs — but full compatibility is much more involved this time around, and you’ll need an entire hardware stack capable of playing back 4K content.

Car Hacker Working With GM To Fix OnStar Vulnerabilities

Connected cars promise better safety and security, but, like anything connected to a network, they can be susceptible to attacks from hackers.

And General Motors Companyis just the latest automaker in the news due to cyber security concerns.

Security researcher—or “white hat” hacker—Samy Kamkar has posted a video on YouTube showing him using a device called “OwnStar,” which allows an unauthorized user to access some of the functionality of GM’s OnStar system.

During the demonstration, he is able to unlock, remote start, and track the vehicle.

Fortunately, driving away isn’t on the menu, as the device can’t mimic a key fob. Gaining access to the vehicle requires an attacker to be near a user who opens their OnStar app, but the location of the actual vehicle is unimportant.

The video above includes a basic breakdown of how the attack works.

According to Kamkar, the exploit works indefinitely, and is possible due to a flaw in the mobile software, not the vehicle itself. And while he is set to present his findings during the Def Con hacking conference—scheduled for August 6 through 9 in Las Vegas—he says GM engineers have been proactive in working to solve the problem.

The news comes on the heels of a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recall of 1.4 million vehicles that was prompted after Wired magazine demonstrated hackers taking control of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee.

And it’s only a matter of time before the next vehicle hack is revealed.

Tidal vs. Spotify: Indie hip hop producers release album on both and declare a surprising winner

Tidal seemed like a service with such promise, but a botched launch caused the iPhone app’s popularity to plummet soon after it was released. Jay-Z’s music service was supposed to be a haven for music fans and artists alike, giving fans access to higher-quality premium tracks while ensuring that artists — independent artists in particular — make more money in the process. Then, to promote Tidal to the world, the service paraded around a bunch of multi-millionaires no one wants to support.
