The FBI will not have to disclose the identity of the provider who unlocked the San Bernardino terrorist's cell

A United States judge has determined that the company name hired by the FBI to unlock the motive of the San Bernardino terrorist who killed 14 people and the price paid by the agency are secrets of national intelligence. Therefore, the FBI will not be required to disclose either the identity of the supplier or how much the tool cost.

The FBI manages to accede to the data in the iPhone of the terrorist of San Bernardino

The government of the United States assures that it has been able to accede to the data that contains the iPhone …

In a decision published over the weekend, Judge Tanya Chutkan I give victory to the FBI, which had been demanded by three media – Vice Media, USA Today and the Associated Press – for access to information about the provider who provided the tool to enter the iPhone. The media stated that they had access to information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). However, the judge stated that revealing the information requested could put the intellectual property of the provider at risk and that the methods used were confidential police techniques.

"It is logical and possible that the provider is less capable that the FBI protect its proprietary information from a cyber attack, "the judge wrote. "Therefore, the FBI's finding that disclosing the supplier's name to the public could put vendor systems at risk, as well as critical technology information, is reasonable."

goes back to 2016, the year in which the Justice Department sued Apple to force it to unlock the terrorist's iPhone 5C, Syed Farook. The man had his cell phone protected with a 4-digit password and the FBI was concerned that Farook had activated a feature that deletes the device after 10 attempts to unlock it. Apple flatly refused to help, arguing that its devices were safe and that unlocking one could set a dangerous precedent.

At the end, the help of the manufacturer It was not necessary. The FBI decided to go another route and hired a private provider, who was successful in hacking the phone. The organizations then sued the agency, stating that it was important to know who the provider was and how much the FBI had paid since it was unclear how many phones could be hacked. They also argued that the FBI could use the method in secret in the future.

A few months ago, after the appearance of FBI Director James Comey before Congress, Senator Diane Fienstein commented that the agency had paid the provider around 900,000 to unlock the mobile. The FBI has not verified the figure.

How to effectively disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on iOS 11


Right: It seems that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are turned off, right? No: They are only disconnected. The radios are still active, which raises battery problems and security.

                                                    Screenshot by Rick Broida / CNET

There is something different about iOS 11 – and it's debatable whether it's something good or bad.

Since the Control Center made its debut, 7, it has included a few convenient buttons to enable and disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Only by touching the toggle the function is disabled.

On iOS 11, those same switches are there, but they work differently: instead of turning off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios, they simply disconnect from devices and the networks.

Apple is not likely to issue a solution for this unless there are enough complaints from users, but it is not a bug ; is something done by design, according to this Apple customer support document.



What is the purpose behind this new "function"? As explained in that document, "On iOS 11 and later, when the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth buttons are activated in the Control Center, the device will immediately disconnect from the available Wi-Fi and Bluetooth accessories. Bluetooth will remain available. "

Why? That's for you to keep using "important" features and devices like AirDrop, AirPlay, Apple Pencil and Apple Watch.

Here's where it gets really weird: If you disable Bluetooth and / or Wi-Fi through of the Control Center, both will be automatically reactivated after 5 am or if you restart your device. And Wi-Fi is reactivated if you walk or drive to a new location.

Now, Bluetooth is deactivated for real.

                                                    Rick Broida / CNET

I suspect that most people turn off radios for security reasons (iPhone are susceptible to the recent attack of malware BlueBorne) and / or to prolong the life of the battery. Unfortunately, the Control Center no longer allows you to disable Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

To do this, you will have to venture to the Configuration, just as in the days before the Control Center.


For Wi-Fi: Settings> Wi-Fi> Off

For Bluetooth: Settings> Bluetooth> Off

11 ways to extend battery life in iOS 11


                                                    Jason Cipriani / CNET

The new iOS is here, but surely your cell phone is consuming more battery than normal.

Upgrading to a new version of iOS brings many consequences. If the battery of your cell phone does not last as before, we tell you 11 ways so that it does not end so fast.

1. Check the battery consumption of each app

The iPhone includes a list that allows you to see which applications consume the most battery. You should open the Settings menu and choose the Battery option to see which application has consumed the most battery in the last 24 hours and seven days.

Select the clock icon on the right side to see how long it has been running the app in the background or on the main screen. With this information you can limit the use of that app that consumes too much battery.

                                                    Screenshot by Matt Elliott / CNET

2. Decrease the brightness of the screen

The screen light is one of the things that most consume battery. However, you can adjust the brightness from the Control Center.



You can also select the Auto Brightness option, which is adjusted according to light. I recommend using this option if you use your iPhone more than everything at night or indoors and not on the street.

If you are in well-lit places, the automatic function keeps the brightness of your screen at the maximum level, which consumes more battery. The Auto Brightness option changed location in iOS 11 and is now in the Accessibility menu. You must enter Settings, choose the General option, select Accessibility and touch Screen adaptations. Ios-auto-brightness "height =" 0 "width =" 370 "

3. Reduces the brightness of the flashlight

Like the display, the flashlight can consume enough battery. In iOS 11 there are four types of light you can use. If you use the flashlight very often, use the function with less light. This option can save you battery and still work as a flashlight. Open the Control Center and press for a few seconds the flashlight option to choose the option you prefer. iOS saves your preferences for the next time you use the flashlight.

4. Use the Save battery option

This option is not new but it is very useful. In addition, it allows you to reduce or stop the option of updating mail, background applications and automatic downloads. It also reduces visuals and blocks your phone every 30 seconds. When the battery reaches 20 percent, iOS suggests you turn on the Battery Saver mode, but you can also turn it on from Settings and Battery. If you prefer you can ask Siri to turn it on or you can add the option to the new Control Center. Ios-low-power-mode "height =" 0 "width =" 370

5. Emails

Urgent messages may come to you via text messages, so you may not need to constantly update your phone's mail. Check your email settings so you're sure this option is off. You can configure these options by changing your preferences and selecting Manual. This means that the Mail app will not look for new mail, but you will have to open it and search for it manually.

                                                    Screenshot by Matt Elliott / CNET

6. Disable Siri

Although it is not known how much battery the "Hey Siri" function consumes, we recommend turning it off, since the Battery Saver mode deactivates the function. To do so, go to Settings, select Siri and disable "Hey Siri."

7. Limit automatic downloads and background applications

There are some applications that update the content even if you are not using them. Although it is a useful function, it can consume too much battery. Disable it from Settings, General, and select Background Update.

Automatic updates also consume battery. You can disable this option and update applications manually from the App Store. To disable this option, you must go to Settings, iTunes & App Store and disable the automatic updates option.

                                                    Screenshot by Matt Elliott / CNET

8. Turn off visual effects

Visual effects that are turned off in Battery Saver mode are animations that give the effect of depth when you flip your iPhone or open and close apps. First you must go to Settings, then select General, Accessibility and choose the option Reduce movement. From this menu you can adjust contrast and transparency.

                                                    Screenshot by Matt Elliott / CNET

9. Change locking preferences

To save battery power, we recommend reducing the time the screen is turned on when you do not use your phone. The auto-lock feature locks your iPhone while you do not use it. You can adjust the duration from Settings and Display and Brightness.

                                                    Screenshot by Matt Elliott / CNET

10. Change Location options

Applications that use your location consume more battery power than other apps. iOS 11 lets you control when and how you want apps to access your location. You will not only have the option of Never and Always. Now you can use the On use option. Change these options from Settings, Privacy and Location.

11. Limits notifications

Notifications are not only tedious, they also consume battery because they turn on the iPhone screen even if you are not using it. To change them you can go to Settings, Notifications and choose which applications can send you notifications. You can also disable the applications on the lock screen.

Windows 10: fixes for performance problems in video games



                                                     Windows 10: patches for performance problems in video games


On the Nvidia Geforce forum players share their experience following the installation of the updated Creators Update released in March 2017. They report a problem with performance, Microsoft acknowledges the problem and says that it has identified their origins.

This is the site MSPowerUser that spotted the discussion on the forum of gamers. Players talk about FPS (frames per second) concerns, that is to say the fluidity of the image in video games like Overwatch, Battlefield or Rocket League. Microsoft finally acknowledged the problem by responding in the Hub app with comments and stating that it analyzed user reports and found several sources causing lag in games.

A fix is ​​already available for one of these causes and was released in a preview version of Windows 10, the one stamped build 16273 (and the following ones). However, this is a version that is only available to testers who are members of the Windows Insider voluntary testing program. For the rest he asks the users a little patience. In some cases the situation seems to improve by disabling the DVR games parameter.

The Insider program is open to all but requires to install versions of Windows under development and therefore considered unstable. Fortunately, it will not wait too long because this first patch and any subsequent patches will be released to the general public in the next major update Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that Microsoft announced for October 17.




Are you going to sell your old iPhone? Avoid being a victim of fraud


However, personal sales of items like the iPhone can be somewhat dangerous and you've probably heard stories about it. of someone who was a victim of fraud or theft by selling a cell phone.

According to Brian Morris, the website, which serves to compare the resale value of mobile phones, you always get better value when selling the cell between users. This is a better option than selling it to a website. However, Morris adds that Gazelle and Nextworth typically pay 30 percent more than phone company programs.

There is a big difference between what you can get by a phone on eBay, Let Go and other resale websites. As of September 22, Flipsy reported that a 128GB iPhone 7 could sell for $ 508. However, resell websites pay $ 391 for the same device. This means that telephone companies only pay US $ 273.



According to these numbers, it's better if you sell the phone yourself, especially if the iPhone X costs $ 1,000. However, selling your cell phone can take time and can be dangerous. On Craigslist, there are people who never make it to the agreed date, even when you've been trading the price per message for hours. There are also criminals. There are people who have been mugged while meeting with the buyer and others who have received false money.

What to do? Exchanging your cell phone in Apple, some other Web site or telephone company is the safest. But if you really want to sell the phone to get more money, we give you some recommendations not to be a victim of theft. If you find someone on Craigslist, Facebook, eBay or any app like OfferUp or LetGo:

  • Check out the social networks of the

  • If something seems suspicious, let the offer pass.
  • Check the buyer's reviews to see if it has a history of successful sales and transactions.

Let it be a public place

  • Meet the buyer in a well-lit public place.
  • If the police department in your city has safe places for online sales, use it. You can see a list of these sites at: Safe Deal Zone website
  • Do not go alone. Take a companion to serve as a witness in case something goes wrong.
  • Meet during the day and not at night.
        • Never let you get paid with a check, as it can be fake or have no funds.
        • Check the money before you deliver the phone. You can buy a pencil to detect if the money is false. These pencils cost less than $ 5 on Amazon.

        Avoid using PayPal

        PayPal can be very useful for the buyer, but not for the seller. If a problem occurs during the sale, PayPal tends to favor the buyer and allows you to challenge the charges. There are people who abuse this.

        If someone buys your device and comes to pick it up in person, you can send a complaint saying that you never received the item. If you have no proof that you turned it in, you can not discuss the claim. For this reason it is better to get paid in cash.

        Even if you send the phone by UPS or FedEx, the buyer can say that the cell arrived damaged or never arrived. If you definitely have to use PayPal, be sure to send the phone to secure addresses, do not deliver the item in person, request a signature for the receipt and describe in detail what you are selling.

        You still do not know what to do?

        If you are still not sure which is the best option, you should compare different resale sites.



        "It's important to compare," suggests Yanyan Ji, vice president of marketing at Gazelle. Using reseller sites services has several benefits. For example, Gazelle respects the price of a device for 30 days and now has a promotion that extends it to 45. Thus your device does not lose value even if another version of the phone has been announced.

        We recommend you evaluate the risks of selling your device on sites such as Facebook and Craigslist and choose the method that best suits you to get the best price for your old iPhone.
