bring in the experts: it’s time to secure your home network

Not all that long ago, managing your home network’s security didn’t involve much more than installing an antivirus program on your PC. If only it were still so simple. It’s no longer just about protecting the computer on which you may be working from home and the laptops the kids may be using as online school starts. Odds are good you’ve got a few other internet-connected devices around the house -- phones, tablets, game consoles, maybe a“smart”TV or thermostat or refrigerator or light bulb or kid’s toy or security camera or video-streaming gadget or voice-activated digital valet. The average U.S. home now has 11 such devices, according to Deloitte, many of which are vulnerable to hacking. If you don’t want cyber cat burglars traipsing across them, potentially spreading malware or ransomware as…

The holiday video game console battle is heating up. Microsoft says its Xbox Series X will cost $500 and debut Nov. 10, just ahead of the holidays. There haven’t been new generations of video game consoles for several years. The most recent Xbox, Xbox One, was released in 2013, as was Sony’s PlayStation 4. A stripped down version, Xbox Series S, will cost $300 and be available at the same time. Pre-orders begin Sept. 22. New video games at launch include “Assasin’s Creed Valhalla,”“Gears Tactics,”“Dirt 5,” and “Watch Dogs Legion.” Rival Sony is expected to announce the pricing for its PlayStaton 5 shortly.…

samsung wins $6.6 billion contract from verizon to create 5g

Samsung Electronics Co. will develop 5G network infrastructure for Verizon Communications under a $6.65 billion deal announced this week. The contract runs through 2025, according to a Samsung corporate filing. Samsung and Verizon have worked together before. In 2018, for example, Samsung technology was behind a 5G home service that Verizon offered to some customers in California, Texas and Indiana. “Samsung has demonstrated their commitment to collaborating with us to drive innovation in 5G,” New York-based Verizon said in a statement. “We are excited to expand our relationship with them and benefit from a long-term strategic agreement.” Samsung did not immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press seeking comment. The South Korean technology giant beat out rivals like Finland’s Nokia, which has collaborated with Verizon in the past. But one 5G rival — China’s Huawei…

gm to make electric vehicle, supply batteries for nikola

General Motors announced its second major electric vehicle partnership in less than a week, this time a $2 billion deal with startup Nikola. GM will take an 11% ownership stake in the Phoenix company and will engineer and build Nikola’s Badger hydrogen fuel cell and electric pickup truck. The Badger is expected to be in production by the end of 2022. GM also will help with cost reductions for Nikola’s other vehicles including heavy trucks, and the company will use GM’s battery system and hydrogen fuel technology. In exchange for the 10-year deal, GM will get $2 billion worth of Nikola’s newly issued common stock that will come in three increments through 2025. News of the deal sent shares of both companies surging despite a broader-market downturn. Nikola’s shares jumped $14.50, or 40.8%, to…

emmys apple tv+ racks up award nominations

The nominations are in for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, and as is now tradition, it’s streaming giants that are stealing the spotlight from traditional broadcasters. Netflix may be the frontrunner with an incredible 160 nominations, but new entrants like Disney+ and Apple are proving their offerings can’t be ignored, with Apple TV+ securing an impressive 18 nods. THE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK The entertainment industry has overgone one of the greatest transformations in recent years. Not long ago, we’d sit down on an evening for appointment-to-view television and head to movie theaters for the latest blockbuster. But Netflix and Amazon Prime have led to “cable-cutting,” with millions of American households canceling their subscriptions to costly entertainment packages in favor of cheaper bundles online. As that trend continues, more players are…

what to expect at apple’s “time flies” special event on september 15

Although Apple traditionally shows off new iPhones in September, it has been widely reported that this year’s models are delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and as a result, the firm could show them off in an October keynote. The company is taking a leaf out of WWDC’s book and hosting a new digital-only event, with no members of the media or developer world invited to attend the event in person. Apple will prerecord the details of each product and share them in a seamless presentation online. This year has been quiet for Apple so far on the product front, with the coronavirus pandemic causing technology giants to slow down their usual release schedules. However, it is expected that the Cupertino company will make up for this in the latter half of the year,…
