China expressed concern on Thursday over revelations in a trove of data released by Wikileaks purporting to show that the CIA can hack all manner of devices, including those made by Chinese companies.Dozens of firms rushed to contain the damage from possible security weak points following the anti-secrecy organization’s revelations, although some said they needed more details of what the U.S. intelligence agency was up to.Widely-used routers from Silicon Valley-based Cisco (CSCO.O) were listed as targets, as were those supplied by Chinese vendors Huawei [HWT.UL] and ZTE (000063.SZ) and Taiwan supplier Zyxel for their devices used in China and Pakistan.Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said China expressed concern about the reports and reiterated its opposition to all forms of hacking.”We urge the U.S. side to stop listening in, monitoring, stealing secrets and internet hacking against China and other countries,” Geng told a daily news briefing.

The head of South Korea’s Samsung Group, Jay Y. Lee, denies all charges against him, his lawyer said on Thursday, at the start of what the special prosecutor said could be the “trial of the century” amid a political scandal that has rocked the country.Lee has been charged with bribery, embezzlement and other offences in a corruption scandal that has already led to the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.Lee, who is being detained at Seoul Detention Centre, did not attend court. A defendant does not have to turn up during a preparatory hearing, held to organize evidence and set dates for witness testimony.The date of the next hearing will be decided next week.Lee’s defense denied all charges against him on his behalf, saying that the special prosecution’s indictment cites conversations, evidence or witnesses the prosecution did not actually hear, investigate or interview according to the rules – or states opinions that are not facts.”It is unclear what kind of order Lee Jae-yong is supposed to have given,” Song Wu-cheol, defending Lee, told the court, using his Korean name.

The luxury of telling poor people that iPhones are a luxury – The Washington Post

The luxury of telling poor people that iPhones are a luxury – The Washington Post

 

A GOP lawmaker is selling his party’s vision for the U.S. health care system by presenting Americans with a decision: Your iPhone or your health.

“Americans have choices, and they’ve got to make a choice,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) on CNNTuesday. “So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care.”

While Chaffetz’s remarks reflect a sentiment that people should make financially responsible decisions, there are two things out of place here. First, if you run the numbers as my colleague Christopher Ingraham did, you quickly find it’s an apples-to-oranges comparison. Even the most expensive iPhone is a tiny fraction of what most people pay for health care every year. Giving up a $769 iPhone would not make health care any more affordable in a meaningful sense. To truly cover medical costs, a typical American would need to give up 23 iPhone 7 Pluses, every two years.

Film – Ataraxia

 

Det handlar om löpning och om en lek med ord. Ataraxia beskriver ett tillstånd av total frihet.

 

ATARAXIA is a short film that was born after a discussion with a good friend, Rudi. Rudi is a runner, he loves the great outdoors and running long distances. He also holds a PhD in linguistics and once talked about “ataraxia”, this incredible state of freedom that he sometimes reaches during long alpine outings. This film is about understanding that feeling.
