With a firm and loud encryption stance in place, Apple may be upping the ante, as they’ve just re-added John Callas, a noted cryptographer, back to their team. In his time away from Apple he has created Silent Circle, a firm that provides different types of encrypted communication support, in addition to having created the Blackphone, a safe and encrypted smartphone that runs it’s own secure Silent OS which is a modified version of the Android OS that has more encryption.Read More
Windows phones were released in 2010, three years after the first iPhones came out. Then in 2013, Microsoft acquired Nokia to provide both the hardware and software as Apple has done with their devices.

One journalist writing for Wired performed an experiment that has been rumored to be possible in the circles of gay online dating. He signed up for the gay dating app Grindr, which is location based, and turned on the feature that is supposed to hide your location.

The other notable thing about Google assistant is that it doesn't have a catchy name to personify it, like Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa or Windows' Cortana. Some would argue that Google itself is the name of the assistant, as many devices allow you to simply say "OK, Google," to launch a Google search. Google has already built this technology into a few of its recently announced products including Google Home, a product which will be able to control almost everything about your home,…Read More
Google has recently made the decision to open source their language AI, Syntaxnet, which is a fairly developed system that hopes to help digital assistants and other technologies to understand more complex questions than the orders that we frequently give to Siri. Google's hope is that this system can learn to answer questions that require nuanced answers, and by open sourcing it, they are increasing the amount of information the network has access to for learning.Read More
