- DRAM prices up 111% from 2016 - The adversarial
relationship of the DRAM user and producer continues Over the
full market cycle, each side presses its advantage as much as possible.
Historically, the DRAM market has been the most volatile of the major
IC product segments. Figure 1 reinforces that statement by showing that
the average selling price (ASP) for DRAM has more than doubled in just
one year. In fact, the September Update to The McClean Report will
discuss IC Insights's forecast that the 2017 price per bit of DRAM will
register a greater than 40% jump, its largest annual increase ever!
- The Pirate Bay hijacks visitors' CPU causing 100% spikes,

magnet/torrenting site thepiratebay.se (TPB) has been discovered to hijack its visitors' CPU cycles and cause 100%
spikes while visiting the site, due to a sneaky cryptocurrency
mining script, embedded in the website's HTML.
- Google Deletes Inactive Android Backups After 2 Months - Google will delete Android device backups that are
left inactive for
two months with little or no warning. The discovery was made by a
Reddit user who left a Nexus 6P backup in his Google Drive Backup
folder for more than two months, only to later find it had been deleted
by Google automatically. Google Support documentation appears to
confirm the behavior. "Your backup will remain as long as you use your
device. If you don't use your device for 2 weeks, you may see an
expiration date below your backup. Example: 'Expires in 54 days.'" The
maximum limit for device backups appears to be 60 days, or two months.
The short expiration date on device backups is odd, given how freely
Google offers online storage to its users. Google has not addressed the

- Verizon Is Disconnecting 8,500 Leechers - Verizon is

- Stupid Android app so you can turn your phone into an iPhone X
- A developer going by the name of damianpiwowarski
on Reddit has clearly been inspired by the recent reveal of the
iPhone X and its top center screen "cutout", and has subsequently made
an app to turn any smartphone into an iPhone X, for those who feel
like they are being left out of this seemingly new phenomenon. Upon
installing the app, which is free, there's also an option to turn it
into Essential's PH-1 phone for the "diehard Android fans" (also
featuring a smaller, but more visible cut out) and installers can also
donate, which according to the developer, does nothing but remove ads
from the app. A word of warning though, as noted on the Play Store page
for the app, "This app may potentially trigger seizures for people with
photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised". FYI, the
developer is responsible for a couple of other more serious apps;
Adapticons, which has been downloaded over 800 times, with an average
rating of 4.1 and Navbar Apps, a Nav bar skinner for Android,
downloaded over 12,000 times with a rating of 4.4.
- Bitcoin Crashes after Chinese Exchange Says It Will Halt
Trading - Bitcoin has seen its longest losing streak in more than
a year after one of China's largest online exchanges said it would stop
handling trades by the end of the month amid a government crackdown on
cryptocurrencies: China accounts for about 23 percent of bitcoin trades
and is home to many of the world's biggest bitcoin miners, but BTC
has crashed as much as 35% in Chinese trading. The communist nation
plans to ban trading of bitcoin and other virtual currencies on
domestic exchanges, Bloomberg News reported Monday. The ban will only
apply to trading of cryptocurrencies on exchanges, according to people
familiar with the matter, who asked not to be named because the
information is private. Authorities don't have plans to stop
over-the-counter transactions, the people said. Shanghai Financial
Service Office has also ordered to close down bitcoin trading platforms
in the city, China Business News reported, citing an unidentified
- Exploit Available for Critical Apache Struts Vulnerability - Apache
Struts is a free and open-source framework designed for creating modern
Java web applications. The framework is reportedly used by at least 65
percent of Fortune 100 companies, and they could all be exposed to
attacks due to a recently discovered security hole. Researchers at
lgtm, a company that provides code analysis solutions, discovered that all versions
of Apache Struts released since 2008 are affected by a severe
vulnerability related to the REST communication plugin. The Apache
Struts group has described the flaw, tracked as CVE-2017-9805, as a
potential remote code execution issue when the REST plugin is used with
the XStream handler for XML payloads.
- Revolutionary New Football Helmet Protects against Brain
Injuries - Mounting safety concerns have already rattled the NFL.
Players traditionally deemed fit -- in terms of age and skill level --
continue to walk away from the game. Since the Zero1 is only now
entering its first game, it remains to be seen if it's capable of drastically
improving player safety and tidying up the NFL's tarnished image.
Though it's unlikely the NFL dries up without the emergence of a
company like Vicis, even a few star players walking away from the game
is damning evidence of an eventual decline.
