Freeserve, Orange and Wanadoo email to be shut down in May

Mar 22, 2017 - 8:01 PM - by Reverend
Legacy email accounts from mobile operator and internet service provider Orange (now part of EE and, hence, BT) are to be closed by the end of May.

Anyone with the following type of email addresses will therefore need to set-up an alternative before 31 May, as well as migrating any emails they wish to keep to an alternative provider:

Orange.net
Orangehome.co.uk
Wanadoo.co.uk
Freeserve.co.uk
Fsbusiness.co.uk
Fslife.co.uk
Fsmail.net
Fsworld.co.uk
Fsnet.co.uk

The move will affect anyone running a Freeserve, Orange or Wanadoo account - Freeserve, founded by electrical retailer Dixons, having been acquired by French ISP Wanadoo, which was then owned by France Telecom, before the French national communications company swallowed up Orange and merged the two.

Freeserve was a huge success almost from the moment it was set-up in 1998 by Planet Online and Dixons, scooping up half-a-million subscribers in the space of just two months.

At a time when home internet access was purely dial-up, and subscribers paid both a monthly fee and per-minute call charge, Freeserve instead used a 0845 local-rate number from which it took a share and abolished the monthly subscription fee.

When it was floated on the London Stock Exchange just a year or so after it was founded, it had 1.3 million subscribers and was valued at between £1.3bn and £1.5bn.

Samsung Galaxy S8 could have a 3-month refund policy

Mar 22, 2017 - 7:27 PM - by Reverend
If you wind up buying and disliking the Samsung Galaxy S8, which launches March 29 in New York, you might be able to return it fuss-free for up to three months, according to according The Investor, citing Korean outlet Chosun Biz.

A three-month unconditional refund policy is considered generous in the mobile industry, which often has much shorter grace periods depending on the retailer. A two-week window would be common.

If true, the generous refund policy could be a reaction to the Galaxy Note 7 battery fires, which forced many people to return their phones against their will. Samsung is also battling the specter of the fires themselves, leaving fans to question whether Samsung could make safe phones.

An unconditional return policy for the Galaxy S8 -- along with an eight-point battery check -- could be Samsung's way of extending goodwill to buyers.

The return policy may mean that people who buy the S8 would be able to use it for up to three months, then return the phone for a full refund if they don't want it. This will allow Samsung to roll out updates to Bixby, its voice assistant for the S8 and future Samsung devices.

Although the initial version of Bixby will use only technology that Samsung created in-house, Samsung has committed to future Bixby updates that will help it work with third-party apps to do more on the phone, Samsung's R&D chief, Injong Rhee, told CNET.

A wide return window could allow buyers to use the phone with the upcoming Bixby updates before making a final decision whether to keep it.

Mozilla beats rivals, patches Firefox's Pwn2Own bug

Mar 21, 2017 - 8:53 AM - by Reverend
Mozilla last week patched a Firefox vulnerability just a day after it was revealed during Pwn2Own, the first vendor to fix a flaw disclosed at the hacking contest.

"Congrats to #Mozilla for being the first vendor to patch vuln[erability] disclosed during #Pwn2Own," tweeted the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) Monday. ZDI, the bug brokerage run by Trend Micro, sponsored Pwn2Own.

Mozilla released Firefox 52.0.1 on Friday, March 17, with a patch for the integer overflow bug that Chaitin Security Research Lab leveraged in an exploit at Pwn2Own on Thursday, March 16. The Beijing-based group was awarded $30,000 by ZDI for the exploit, which combined the Firefox bug with one in the Windows kernel.

The vulnerability was rated "Critical" by Mozilla in an accompanying description. As usual, the company masked the technical details of the bug to outsiders.

Chaitin was just one of several Chinese security teams that participated in Pwn2Own, again held at the annual CanSecWest conference in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. The group took third place among the participants, and won a total of $90,000 in prize money.

Firefox was not the only browser to fall at Pwn2Own. Apple's Safari was hacked four times at the contest, and Microsoft's Edge was exploited five times during the three-day event. Google's Chrome, however, came away unscathed.

Samsung’s new virtual assistant will make using your phone easier

Mar 21, 2017 - 8:49 AM - by Reverend
Google, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft are all known for having smart, artificial intelligence-equipped digital assistants, and now you can add Samsung into that mix. Today, the company has officially announced its own spin on the virtual assistant, and it’s calling it Bixby.

Samsung’s approach to an AI assistant (or “agent,” as the company likes to call them) is a bit different than what you or I might be used to from Siri or Cortana. Instead of being a database that you fire questions at or tell to do specific things, Bixby is meant to be a helper on your device, to make it easier to access to accomplish the litany of tasks that modern gadgets such as smartphones are capable of. A less charitable interpretation might be that Bixby exists to solve one of the most difficult challenges in all of tech: make Samsung’s own poorly designed software and interfaces easier to use.

Bixby will first appear on the Galaxy S8, expected to be announced later this month. The phone will have a dedicated button to launch the assistant, but Samsung says that its initial capabilities will be limited to a handful of preinstalled apps, with others added over time. It will also be limited to just English and Korean at first, though there are plans to add other languages such as Chinese and US Spanish shortly after launch.
"Bixby will first appear on the S8 later this month"

How much you’ll get out of Bixby, should you buy an S8, will vary depending on your own needs, and it won’t be super powerful at first. Samsung isn’t providing specifics on how exactly it will work on the phone, but in a blog post announcing the service, it says, “When using a Bixby-enabled application, users will be able to call upon Bixby at any time and it will understand the current context and state of the application and will allow users to carry...
