Google Glass Lives - New Model: Hardware Posted by: comforteagle

From the Wearables dept.:
Google Glass is not dead. A brand new model of Google's face computer has popped up on the FCC website complete with rather high-res images of the device.

The pictures show a Google Glass unit with the FCCID "A4R­-GG1" that looks a lot like the existing Glass design. The biggest change seems to be that the device can now fold up, just like a regular pair of glasses, which will make it much easier to store when you aren't wearing it. The Glass prism looks longer than the first version of the device, which presumably offers a larger picture.

$1B Electric Vehicle Plant Picks Tesla Backyard Nevada: Hardware Posted by: comforteagle

From the Vroom dept.:
A Chinese-backed electric car company with visions of revolutionizing transportation – but no product to show yet – announced plans Wednesday to build a $1 billion plant near Las Vegas, marking the second time in just over a year that Nevada has landed a coveted project from the budding industry.

California-based automaker Faraday Future's choice of Nevada over three other states is contingent on state lawmakers' approval of tax incentives that haven't been publicly described. The company's announcement, in a letter to Nevada legislators that was obtained by The Associated Press, also came with the revelation that it's backed by a Chinese billionaire investor who styles himself after Apple's late Steve Jobs.

At that meeting, White House officials told representatives from the American Civil Liberties Union, Access, the Center for Democracy and Technology, Human Rights Watch, and New America's Open Technology Institute that they were eyeing a holiday deadline for their formal response, according to Kevin Bankston, OTI's director, who helped organize the meeting.

Privacy Concerns Microsoft Announces Plans to Offer Cloud Services from German Datacenters: Legal Posted by: comforteagle

From the xoujee99-w dept.:
Microsoft said its ‘cloud in Germany’ will launch in the second half of 2016, and will be operated under German law by T-Systems, a subsidiary of telco Deutsche Telekom. The two data centers will be based in Magdeburg and Frankfurt am Main, with Microsoft stressing this “data trustee” model means it will not have any access to customer data without the consent of the trustee, and that it cannot therefore be compelled — “even by a third party” — to hand over customer data.

Severe Deserialization Vulnerabilities Found In Android, 3rd Party Android SDKs: Android Posted by: comforteagle

From the Ekkkkk! dept.:
Closely behind the discoveries of the Stagefright flaw, the hole in Android's mediaserver service that can put devices into a coma, and the Certifi-gate bug, comes that of an Android serialization vulnerability that affects Android versions 4.3 to 5.1 (i.e. over 55 percent of all Android phones). The bug (CVE-2015-3825), discovered by IBM's X-Force Application Security Research Team in the OpenSSLX509Certificate class in the Android platform, can be used to turn malicious apps with no privileges into "super" apps that will allow cyber attackers to thoroughly "own" the victim's device.
