What would the Internet be without the JerryRigEverything scratch, burn and bend tests? He usually applies those to smartphones, but now itís time for a tablet to go through it, Apple Pencil 2 included. Letís see the result.

The YouTuber breaks the pen in half and says that the accessory is a tad more resilient than the average wood pencil. A pressure sensitive tip and some magnets pop up. As far as the iPad Pro (2018) scratch test goes, the screen gets some tracks at level 6 out of 9, like the usual smartphone nowadays. Then the patient guy takes a cutter to the sides, back and edges.



Itís all metal, so thereís no unpleasant surprise here. Extra bonus points go to the creator of the video for the Spider-Man drawing with the cutter at the back. The main camera is covered by sapphire glass, at least on paper, but in real life itís normal glass, scratching at the same level 6. The lighter test saw the screen lasting 10 seconds under the heat of the flame, before turning off and then recovering slowly.



The core point of the video was the bend test and it didnít work out fine. The new iPad Pro (2018) is waaaay too easy to bend, sadly. JerryRigEverything didnít even break a sweat when doing, but the screen didÖ break in a million pieces. The middle of the device is the weakest point and itís very vulnerable. The worst thing is that the breakage leaves vital stuff open, like the battery pack and components.



Accessories seem like a must here and extra attention when carrying the slate aroundÖ Somehow I feel that a glass back would have made it tougher.

Those who are trapped deep in the dark world of the PC Master Race know that the name Razer comes bundled with two keywords: quality and expense. Thereís a sense that when you buy something from Razer, youíre buying something premium and thereís a premium price tag associated with that.

Thatís not always the case, however, and Razerís mid-end products have offered affordable options for gamers that are seemingly never talked about. This is where Razerís entry-level kit comes into play; these products aim to bring the high built quality and premium feel to lower budget gamers while also not breaking the bank too hard.

With a total price tag of £169.97, itís still not exactly cheap for those who are on a real budget, but it is more affordable than most. But what are Razer touting as their entry level products? Well, itís the essentials reallyóa keyboard, mouse and headset, everything you need to be immersed in your gaming experience. For the sake of a nicely formatted article and readability, letís go through this one-by-one.

Razer Abyssus Essential Ė £49.99

The Razer Abyssus mouse is my favorite item in the entry level kit and it is also the most basic. If youíre looking for a solid mouse and not much more this is the place to go; you arenít going to find any meaningful additions to the design outside of the bare necessities. Itís a mouse: left-click, right-click, the scroll wheel and middle mouse button are all here. No extra buttons, no macros, no weird phone-style keypad on one side of the device. Instead, Razer has gone for, well, the deviceís namesake. Itís the Essential! You get the bare necessities, and thatís it. Itís great!

As far as design goes, the Razer Abyssus Essential is beautiful. The small and slender chassis may appear rather petite for anyone who may suffer from a case of gargantuan-hand-syndrome, but Razer has done a good job making the device fit perfectly in the palm. As the product page says, the Essential is incredibly ergonomic and the smooth plastic back combined with responsive mechanical mouse-clicks feels immensely satisfying. Also boasting an ambidextrous design, this mouse doesnít favor one hand over the other, the testing of which was a pain.

The sensor that powers the deviceís movements is about as accurate as youíd expect from a modern computer mouse Ė itís pretty much perfect. Those who play shooters that rely heavily on tracking-over-time should feel right at home. Small and swift movements are as easy to perform and long and smooth ones; the Essential glides well across most surfaces, too, which makes everything feel that much nicer. Whether youíre gaming with or without a mouse mat (in true brand-confidence I was using a Razer mouse mat from my Abyssus 2000) it should feel incredibly accurate for all your pointing and clicking needs.

For just £49.99, the Abyssus Essential is a fantastic piece of kit. Even without macros and side buttons, I can wholeheartedly say that it is one of my all-time favorite mice (sending this back to Razer will sink my heart). With the addition of Razer Synapse lighting on the top and bottom, the Essential does manage to sneak in just a bit of that classic Razer style for your money. Itís a beautiful piece of kit, and if shelling out fifty quid for a mouse is what you want to do, this is a solid choice. In fact, since our unit had to be sent back to Razer after testing, I now have my own. (It was a great birthday present and is now my mouse of choice)

Razer Cynosa Chroma Ė £64.99

A great PC gaming experience isnít complete without a solid, nice-feeling keyboard. Razerís candidate for this in their entry-level offerings takes the form of the Cynosa Chroma. There is no doubt that this board finds its foundations in the same spot as the Abyssus Essential Ė itís a necessary keyboardÖ outside of its will to have every single key individually lit with a multi-color LED.

Instead of providing the awe-inspiring ďCOOL GAMERĒ aesthetic that many other boards offer, the Cynosa is simplistic and stylish. Build quality is suitably strong, as youíd expect from Razer, and throughout my testing, there was barely anything that felt cheap or out of place. Mechanical keys are suitably scrapped in favor of a set of soft, high-response membrane ones, but this is to be expected.

With that said, the keys on the Cynosa are a bit on the squishy side Ė even for membranes. Feedback is near-instant, but outside of the hard and clunky enter key, there isnít a sense of heft to any of the boardís buttons. However, travel between letters is minimal and the smooth dipped keycaps allow you to easily glide from key-to-key. Media control shortcuts are also easy to use; the easily labeled buttons allow anyone to learn the board within just a few hours.

Implementation with Razerís Synapse program (a program which allows you to change the colors and timings of each LED on the keyboard) is a cool addition, but it feels like itís the only thing driving up the boardís price. At £64.99 this is the most expensive product in the entry level kit and while there arenít as many keyboards in this price range that feel as nice to simply rest your fingertips upon, there are cheaper alternatives that could be substituted onto your desk instead.



Electra V2 Gaming Headset Ė £54.99

With a keyboard and mouse in the bag, the only other meaningful addition to your PC gaming setup should be a decent pair of headphones and a mic, preferably a two-in-one if youíre on a budget. The entry-level kit does feature an impressive little two-in-one for a modest price Ė the Electra V2 Gaming Headset.

Unlike the Cynosa and the Essential, Razerís headset offering doesnít feature RGB lighting. In this case, itís another bonus; not only does the absence of RGB mean you donít get a constant colored glow in your peripheral vision, but it also means Razer could put efforts elsewhere.

The build quality, much like the other products, is rather impressive. The chassis feels nice all around and is a comfortable fit for most heads. The deviceís soft foam banding on the top does feel rather cheap compared to the other components, but it is supported with a sturdy plastic band both inside the foam and above.

As far as sound quality goes, Razerís offering in this department is good but not great. Audio has a nice range but many situations, mostly those with a lot of different layers, start to become slightly muffled and echoed. Bass, in particular, takes a hit, but gaming normally offers a nice experience that is comparable to other headphones in this price range.

Impressively, the Electra V2ís microphone is a simple attachment to the core headset. The small, flexible extension plugs directly into its own 3.5mm port in the right headphone. Itís crisp and clean, no matter what you use it on, and actually surprised me with its quality. For those who canít be bothered to alt-tab back to Discord to mute your microphone, you can simply unplug it from the device Ė handy for when youíre losing an argument and need to retreat.

Conclusion:

The entry-level offerings here from Razer are great options for those who are gaming on a bit of a budget. There are obviously much cheaper alternatives, but rarely any will feel as nice and solid as those being offered here.

The Abyssus Essential and the Electra V2 are the best products in the bunch; thereís a sense of style and quality while also only providing the features that consumers need. Razerís keyboard, however, feels like it misses the mark just a bit. It may feature beautiful programmable RGB keys, but it falls flat compared to the other products here. It definitely has a premium feel on the outside, but heavy use (like the week and a half weíve used it for) might make you wish for something with a little more feedback to it.

For £169.97, you are getting a great kit here that wonít break the bank too hard. If you needed definitive proof that Razer does make products for those who canít afford the ďlatest and greatestĒ kit, here it is.

If youíre a Windows Insider subscribed to the Release Preview Ring, you will receive Build 17763.165 KB4469342 cumulative update. Microsoft quietly pushed the cumulative update to Insiders this week and itís showing up on more devices today.

Microsoft hasnít officially announced Windows 10 Build 17763.165 for Insiders yet but an announcement is expected next week. At the moment, the changelog and a KB page arenít live just yet.

If youíre a non-Insider, you wonít see this update and you should not join the Insider program to grab Build 17763.165 as Microsoft is planning to release a new cumulative update to the general public next week or later this month.

Windows 10 version 1809 and cumulative updates
Windows 10 October 2018 Update was re-released on Tuesday with a bunch of fixes and improvements to address the feedback and complaints Microsoft received from users. Windows 10 October 2018 Update offers a flawless experience for the majority of users but in some cases, the customers may experience issues with File Association, iCloud and there are several other problems outlined by Microsoft.

To ensure users are aware of all issues, Microsoft is updating its support document whenever a new problem in Windows 10 October 2018 Update is discovered. The company has already confirmed that another cumulative update is likely to land later this month to address problems such as the File Association bug.

Earlier this week, Microsoft released the Patch Tuesday update to address the security and some non-security issues but the entire focus was on vulnerabilities. The second November 2018 update rollout will begin soon and as it happens every month, the focus of the second patch will be on non-security issues and general improvements for the customers.

Itís important to install the latest Windows 10 cumulative updates as they bring a system up-to-date by simply downloading and installing a single package, and includes all the fixes that have been released by the company in the past.

Apart from Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Microsoft is also working on new Windows 10 19H1 builds. The latest preview build of Windows 10 19H1 added new light theme mode, introduced modern snipping experience and fixed tons of bugs including the File Association problem. Similar changes are expected to arrive with the next Windows 10ís Spring 2019 preview build.

An update to the Surface Pro 4 on the 26th July this year has been causing major issues for owners of the device, effectively disabling the touchscreen on the device.

Users report the following issues:

   ē All of the keyboard/pad functions are working including zoom, scroll etc. but no
     screen-touch or pen response (pen button clicks still open pre-chosen
     programmes as they should)

   ē After being shut down will only startup with a long hold on the power switch.

   ē It now takes ages to restart (used to start in a few dreamy seconds). Begins
     with a completely black screen for about 20 seconds and no visible signs of
     turning on (lights on Fn key for instance) then the SURFACE screen, then the
     ring and eventually lock screen.

   ē Seems to use the fan more often (it even continued after shut a few times).

   ē In device manager, the Firmware has an exclamation mark on Surface ME
     saying: This device cannot start. (Code 10) Ė An attempt was made to change
     the attributes on memory that has not been committed.

   ē Trouble shooter detects this but can not solve it.

   ē The pen/ink section of the Surface App says: the Surface app needs an
      updated component from Windows Update in order to enable this feature.

The relevant thread at Microsoft Answers has more than 600 replies, with Microsoft saying they are actively investigating the issue, but with no resolution in sight.

Now some users are reporting that they are able to get both warranty and out of warranty replacements for their devices by escalating their support call to a manager and quoting the support thread.

Microsoft is betting big on the 5G promise to transform computing as we know it despite a growing outcry that it poses serious health and environmental dangers.

5G, the next evolution of mobile networks, promises to transform the way we experience technology. 1G brought voice to a mobile platform. 2G introduced text. 3G delivered higher speeds and enabled music and video streaming. 4G or LTE brought up to 10-times higher speeds than 3G. 5G has been described as an evolution of mobile computing due to the many new computing scenarios it is expected to enable such as connected cars, advanced A.I., remote healthcare, advanced augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) and much more.

5G networks will have low latency (very responsive with no delay). They will be exponentially faster than current networks and more robust (able to handle more data). And they will be capable of connecting far more devices. Devices will not only connect and communicate with the network, but 5G's robust low latency qualities will allow devices to connect, communicate and "make decisions" between one another (i.e., smart cars) in real time. These capabilities are foundational to Microsoft's "Azure as the world's computer vision, " its intelligent edge and IoT infrastructure and its always connected PC, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), Mixed Reality and xCloud game streaming strategies.

Still, with all the good 5G promises, there is a cost. Many are claiming that the particular radio frequencies that make 5G great and the thousands of small cell towers required to build out 5G infrastructure pose serious health risks to humans, animals, and the environment. And this outcry isn't coming from technophobes, conspiracy theorists or people on the fringe. Warnings against 5G are erupting from the international scientific community, a reputable source comprised of hundreds of scientists from around the world.

Hundreds of scientists are crying out



In September of 2017, 180 scientists and doctors from around the globe collaborated to begin a petition to stop 5G's deployment due to health risks the technology poses.

5G technology uses a portion of the radio spectrum called millimeter waves. These are very high-frequency waves that give 5G the speed and data capacities that promise to transform the industry. Unlike current and previous spectrum used, however, millimeter waves lose their integrity over long distances, and they don't pass through solid objects very well. Buildings, trees, and even a falling leaf can interfere with millimeter waves. That's a recipe for lousy user experiences.

To compensate for millimeters waves short range and their susceptibility to interference thousands of "small towers" need to be, and are being, implemented throughout municipalities, towns, and neighborhoods. These small towers, which are affixed to lamp posts, traffic lights buildings and more, allow for the near "line of sight" directing of 5G millimeter waves toward users and devices. It is the inundation of these small towers, that will be required approximately every 10-12 houses, and will bath neighborhoods and cities in 5G millimeter waves that concern scientists and citizens. Following are some of the risks they've outlined:

   ○ Increased cancer risk.

   ○ Cellular stress.

   ○ Increase in harmful free radicals.

   ○ Genetic damage.

   ○ Structural and functional changes of the reproductive system.

   ○ Learning and memory deficits.

   ○ Neurological disorders.

   ○ Negative impacts on general well-being in humans.

   ○ Harmful effects to both plant and animal life.

More voices are chiming in



In addition to the 180 scientists in 35 countries who support the aforementioned petition, 230 scientists in 41 countries submitted an appeal based on peer-reviewed published research regarding the harmful effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic field exposure or 5G radio frequencies. Following are some of their recommendations:

   ○ Children and pregnant women to be protected.

   ○ Guidelines and regulatory standards are strengthened.

   ○ Manufacturers develop a safer technology.

   ○ The public is fully informed about the potential health risks.

   ○ Medical professionals are educated about the biological effects of
      electromagnetic energy.

   ○ Governments fund training and research on electromagnetic fields and   
      health.

   ○ Media disclose experts' financial relationships with industry when citing their
      opinions.

   ○ White-zones (radiation-free areas) established.

Given the evidence of health and environmental harm and recommendations from respected sources, why does it seem Microsoft, Qualcomm, carriers, and others are moving forward with 5G plans undeterred?

5G means money, money and more money


MUST WATCH - The SCARIEST 3-1/2 Minutes EVER! - 5G will Weaponize Everything

The United States is in a race against countries including China, to lead the 5G revolution and the multibillion-dollar economies it will enable. Former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler in the above video stresses the billions of dollars 5G will bring the industry, states "we will not wait for standards" and demands that "people stay out of the way of technological advancement."

Microsoft's cloud, which already serves hundreds of businesses and municipalities would get a boost as 5G would increase the capabilities of its intelligent edge, IoT and connected car platforms. It's xCloud game streaming service, with 5Gs low latency and capacity would also benefit. 5G will also enable more personal A.I. particularly as a part of Microsoft's IoT vision where intelligent "computers" would be part of our environment.

Microsoft, Qualcomm, carriers, and governments stand to reap a significant financial windfall with 5Gs implementation. That's why concerns about public and environmental health are not at the forefront of this narrative. The FCC has even made it easier for state governments to steamroll over the will over local governments regarding carriers implementing 5G small cell towers in their towns.

(Un)welcome to the neighborhood



In the above video, a parade of concerned citizens is seen making their case against a state government's plans to implement 5G. These are everyday people from all walks of life. People like you and me.

Anecdotally, I recently received a survey from my carrier asking me if I wanted faster connections, better connections for emergency workers and more. The survey never mentioned 5G but I know my carrier was fishing for "data-driven" support for its 5G agenda.

As for us tech enthusiasts, the story of 5G is usually the one that tells us how fast our next device will be. Or how powerful 5G will make A.I. Or how it will help facilitate amazing real-time AR and VR experiences.

We don't often hear of the practical impacts 5G may have on our health, the health of our families, children, and the environment. But as it is often said, there are two sides to every story. And this is only the beginning.

A version of TrickBot spotted recently shows interest in data that is peculiar for the normal scope of banking trojans: the Windows system reliability and performance information.

Microsoft runs a Reliability Analysis Component (RAC) on Windows operating systems to supply the Reliability Monitor with details about software installations, upgrades, errors from the operating systems and applications, as well as hardware-related issues.

For this purpose, it uses the RACAgent scheduled task on an hourly basis and dumps all the data to a local folder. You can disable the collection of these details from the Task Scheduler applet, but by doing so you no longer get the Reliability Monitor's System Stability Index.

Phishing campaign reveals TrickBot's new interest

An analysis of a phishing campaign from My Online Security reveals that a TrickBot variant spotted this week focused on reading and grabbing the OS reliability database and information available under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC\.

Security researcher James published a list of files trawled by the malware on Twitter:


Exfiltrated Data

It is unclear what good this type of data would do to the crooks, but it may serve malicious purposes, such as better targeting with phishing emails.

TrickBot delivery via fake Lloyds Bank email

This campaign sends TrickBot with messages purporting to be from Lloyds Bank using the address 'donotreply@lloydsbankdocs.com,' which is easy to mistake for a genuine email from the bank.

The fraudsters made an effort to craft believable messages that entice the potential victim to open an attached document containing a malicious macro. If enabled, the macro code downloads and executes TrickBot.


Phishing email

The Office Word document attached to the email includes the Lloyds Bank letterhead to make it look genuine. Furthermore, the crooks added the Symantec logo to make it seem as if the file passed verification from a security solution.



Despite all the efforts to hide its malicious nature, the file is currently detected by at least 30 antivirus engines on VirusTotal.

Microsoft is now more transparent about issues in Windows 10 October 2018 Update and the company has released a new support document to highlight the active problems.

According to the support document, the Windows 10 October 2018 Update breaks the Mapped drives and there are some other bugs.

Bugs and issues of Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Hereís a list of active issues in Windows 10 October 2018 Update and the possible workarounds.

Broken Mapped Drives

Microsoft is aware of an issue in Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) where the mapped drives may fail to reconnect. It might work on some devices and if youíre impacted, a red X appears on the mapped network drives in the File Explorer. This bug exists in Windows Windows 10 version 1809, Windows Server 2019, and Windows Server version 1809.

Microsoft has also detailed the workaround to deal with this problem. The support document explains that the user can update the action of the drive maps to replace in the Group Policy settings. This workaround is supposed to delete the existing mapped drive to create the mapping again on each logon and address the problem.

Microsoft has confirmed that this issue in Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) will be addressed later this month.

Microsoft is expected to release a new cumulative update later this month for Windows 10 with fixes for the aforementioned and other bugs.

F5 VPN incompatibility issue

Microsoft notes that Windows 10 October 2018 Update could break down the F5 VPN service for some users and the company is aware of possible errors experienced by F5 VPN users after updating their computers.

ďAfter updating to Window 10 version 1809, F5 VPN clients may lose network connectivity when the VPN service is in a split tunnel configuration,Ē Microsoft explains. The company is working on a fix and it will be shipped with a cumulative update later this month.

Microsoft says that the issue can be temporarily fixed if the user manually configures their systems and force the traffic through the VPN tunnel.

   ē First off, you need to log in to the BIG-IP APM Configuration utility.

   ē In the app, navigate to Access > Connectivity / VPN > Network Access (VPN) >
     Network Access Lists.

   ē Navigate to the network access profile > Network Settings tab.

   ē To configure it for the client, you would need to click Advanced option.
     Otherwise, click Force all traffic through tunnel and tap on Update.

iCloud issue

iCloud version 7.7.0.27 is not compatible with Windows 10 October 2018 Update and you cannot install it on your device if youíve already upgraded.

Microsoft is blocking the Windows 10 October 2018 Update on devices with incompatible iCloud software running. The compatibility issue will be addressed soon and the October Update will be offered once again.

Old AMD Radeon PCs

Microsoft is also blocking devices with AMD Radeon HD2000 and HD4000 series graphics processors from being offered Windows 10 October 2018 Update due to compatibility issues.

We will update this post when Microsoft details other issues with Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

Xiaomi has just started selling the Bamboo Slate device, a new tablet, thatís able to digitize paper content. Itís priced at just $115 and it comes with WACOM technology. Users can find it on Amazon and the official Youpin Store.

Xiaomiís Youpin store includes a variety of smart home products, which are different from the majority of smart devices. Xiaomi Bamboo Slate is basically a digital notebook, which is able to translate all your paper notes and drawings and turn them into digital content, using the latest technology. That way you can get a digital copy of your handwritten notes or your drawings, just by pressing a single button.



One can also export, edit and sync sketches, drawings, graphics on Android, iOS, and Windows. Itís all done with the aid of WACOM Inkspace. You can choose the format in which you can do the exporting, like Jpeg, PNG, PDF, and WILL. There are also digital modifications which can be performed on those paper notes. The product works using the electromagnetic resonance technology, that lets you produce digital prints with a mere button press.



Thereís a stable magnetic field at the bottom of the device, used for this. An electromagnetic pen also plays a part in this. WILL technology will handle free handwriting tracing and document editing. You can even color documents in the digital format. This is a very lightweight device that offers pen storage with 100% handmade fabric design. Itís priced at just $115.

Web developers can use the SpeechSynthesis API to convert text on a web page into synthesized audio speech.

While this feature is great for accessibility and audio queues, it is being abused by advertisements and low quality/scammy websites.

As this method is one of the last remaining ways for a site to autoplay audio without user interaction, is being abused by sites and advertisements, and does not adhere to Google's autoplay policies, Google has decided to restrict its use starting in Chrome 71.

Quote
"Any news on this? This is being used by abusive ads and already falls under our existing autoplay behavior, so we really should plug this hole," stated Chromium developer David Benjamins in a bug post.

Starting in Chrome 71, the SpeechSynthesis.speak method will be blocked from executing unless there has been some sort of user interaction that triggers it, such as clicking a button.

When a site uses this API to play audio without user interaction, Chrome 70 is already issuing deprecation warnings in the developer tools console. You can see an example of this using the test site http://cr.kungfoo.net/speech/immediately-speak.html.


SpeechSynthesis Deprecated in Chrome 70

In Chrome 71, using this API without any interaction will automatically cause it to be blocked.


Blocked in Chrome 71

Unfortunately, by restricting this API, developers who use it for legitimate reasons such as accessibility are not happy about this change. Now they will need to have their users perform some sort of action to enable the speech.



While the Chromium devs working on this empathize with these developers, they feel more people abuse it then use it for good reason, which is why they decided to restrict its behavior in Chrome 71.
