Should you leave your Mac running all the time?

When did your Mac last start up? Mine’s only been running continuously now for nearly ten days, but unless something forces me to, I don’t intend restarting it for another couple of weeks, and only shut it down completely a couple of times a year. Which is better, then: a daily boot, or leaving your Mac on as long as possible?

Traditional arguments about this have been based on the last generation of computers, with internal hard drives. I’ve been leaving my desktop Mac running constantly for many years now, and started doing so largely to reduce the risk of hard drive failure. This iMac Pro no longer has internal storage which spins platters, so it’s time to reassess what I do.

Lästipset: Trump har gjort miljardförluster i sina företag i flera år

New York Times har sammanställt öppna, offentliga uppgifter och även kommit över annan information om Donald Trumps affärsverksamhet under tio år.

Uppgifterna pekar mot en miljard dollar i förluster och Trumps egna uppgifter om vilken bra förhandlare han är, hur framgångsrik han och hur rik han är inte stämmer. Just nu pågår en hård politisk strid för att få ut Trumps deklarationer och Trump är den förste presidenten på länge som inte vill redovisa sin ekonomi och visa sina deklarationer.

Decade in the Red: Trump Tax Figures Show Over $1 Billion in Business Losses

By the time his master-of-the-universe memoir “Trump: The Art of the Deal” hit bookstores in 1987, Donald J. Trump was already in deep financial distress, losing tens of millions of dollars on troubled business deals, according to previously unrevealed figures from his federal income tax returns.

Mr. Trump was propelled to the presidency, in part, by a self-spun narrative of business success and of setbacks triumphantly overcome. He has attributed his first run of reversals and bankruptcies to the recession that took hold in 1990. But 10 years of tax information obtained by The New York Times paints a different, and far bleaker, picture of his deal-making abilities and financial condition.

Hackers breached 3 US antivirus companies, researchers reveal

In a report published Thursday, researchers at the threat-research company Advanced Intelligence (AdvIntel) revealed that a collective of Russian and English-speaking hackers are actively marketing the spoils of data breaches at three US-based antivirus software vendors. The collective, calling itself “Fxmsp,” is selling both source code and network access to the companies for $300,000 and is providing samples that show strong evidence of the validity of its claims.

Yelisey Boguslavskiy, director of research at AdvIntel, told Ars that his company notified “the potential victim entities” of the breach through partner organizations; it also provided the details to US law enforcement. In March, Fxmsp offered the data “through a private conversation,” Boguslavskiy said. “However, they claimed that their proxy sellers will announce the sale on forums.”

Lästipset: Varför dras vi till konspirationer?

De brukar kallas konspirationsteoretiker och deras förklaringar är invecklade, komplicerade konspirationer som ibland vilar på rasistisk grund, ibland politisk och ibland religiös grund.

Oavsett vad eller hur de presenteras så dras vi till dem. The Guardians Anna Mellan har funderat över varför – vad är det som gör att så många dras till konspirationer?

In January 2015, I spent the longest, queasiest week of my life on a cruise ship filled with conspiracy theorists. As our boat rattled toward Mexico and back, I heard about every wild plot, secret plan and dark cover-up imaginable. It was mostly fascinating, occasionally exasperating and the cause of a headache that took months to fade. To my pleasant surprise, given that I was a reporter travelling among a group of deeply suspicious people, I was accused of working for the CIA only once.
