“Grassroots” anti-Amazon nonprofit turns out to be retailer astroturfing

It's no secret that retailers who compete with Amazon for consumer dollars want regulators to take a closer look at the way their titanic, globe-spanning rival works. They've openly said so, many times. And yet, three major firms reportedly spent a great deal of time and effort obscuring their ties to a nonprofit that exists to rally support against Amazon.

The nonprofit, called the Free and Fair Markets Initiative, describes itself as "a nonprofit watchdog committed to scrutinizing Amazon’s harmful practices and promoting a fair, modern marketplace that works for all Americans." According to a new report today from The Wall Street Journal, however, the group is funded by rivals, including Walmart, Oracle, and mall-owner Simon, who all have a strong financial interest in dethroning Amazon.

All three are competing fiercely with Amazon in their own market sectors. Walmart, the nation's biggest big-box store, competes in retail, selling goods and groceries. Oracle competes in Internet services and has been fighting against Amazon, for example, to secure a $10 billion government contract. And Simon, the country's largest mall owner, is at the front and center of the retail apocalypse and all the dead malls that retail bankruptcies leave in their wake.

AMD announced in a surprise email today that its Ryzen 9 3950X, originally slated for launch this month, has been delayed until November, when it and new Zen 2 Threadripper CPUs will debut:

We are focusing on meeting the strong demand for our 3rd generation AMD Ryzen processors in the market and now plan to launch both the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and initial members of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor family in volume this November. We are confident that when enthusiasts get their hands on the world’s first 16-core mainstream desktop processor and our next-generation of high-end desktop processors, the wait will be well worth it.

The 3950X will be a 16-core, 32-thread desktop CPU running with a 4.7GHz boost clock, with a suggested retail price of $749. Details on the Threadrippers debuting next month are thinner, although graphics describe it as "premiering with 24 cores." Presumably, we'll eventually see Zen 2 Threadrippers with 32 cores and 64 threads to match the last generation's 2990WX. Although there haven't been any official statements, rumors are floating around about one existing Threadripper 3000 32-core CPU—user benchmarks claiming to be from an engineering sample showed up at Geekbench last month.

The delay of Ryzen 9 3950X's launch—along with extreme shortages of the already-launched Ryzen 9 3900X—leads to obvious supply line speculation. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the foundry AMD uses for its Zen 2 processors (and Apple uses for the 7nm A13 CPU in the iPhone 11), recently increased its lead time for new orders from two months to six. This increased lead should not directly affect the 3950X or Threadripper launches, since the silicon for those processors would have been ordered months ago.But it is an indication that TSMC may be approaching production or binning limits.

On September 19, in a conference room at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, California, Crown Sterling CEO Robert Grant, COO Joseph Hopkins, and a pair of programmers staged a demonstration of Grant's claimed cryptography-cracking algorithm. Before an audience that a Crown Sterling spokesperson described as "approximately 100 academics and business professionals," Grant and Hopkins had their minions generate two pairs of 256-bit RSA encryption keys and then derive the prime numbers used to generate them from the public key in about 50 seconds.

In a phone interview with Ars Technica today, Grant said the video was filmed during a "business session" at the event. The "academic" presentation, which went into math behind his claims and a new paper yet to be published, was attended by "mostly people from local colleges," Hopkins said. Grant said that he didn't know who attended both sessions, and the CEO added that he didn't have access to the invitation list.

During the presentation, Grant called out to Chris Novak, the global director of Verizon Enterprise Solutions' Threat Research Advisory Center, naming him as a member of Crown Sterling's advisory board. The shout-out was during introductory remarks that Grant made about a survey of chief information security officers that the company had conducted. The survey found only 3% had an understanding of the fundamental math behind encryption.

AT&T tells court: Customers can’t sue over sale of phone location data

Par Jon Brodkin

Enlarge (credit: Getty Images | SOPA Images)

AT&T is trying to force customers into arbitration in order to avoid a class-action complaint over the telecom's former practice of selling users' real-time location data.

In a motion to compel arbitration filed last week, AT&T said that plaintiffs agreed to arbitrate disputes with AT&T when they entered into wireless service contracts. The plaintiffs, who are represented by Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) attorneys, will likely argue that the arbitration clause is invalid.

The case is pending in US District Court for the Northern District of California. In March 2018, a judge in the same court ruled that AT&T could not use its arbitration clause to avoid a class-action lawsuit over the company's throttling of unlimited mobile data plans. That's because the California Supreme Court had ruled in McGill v. Citibank "that an arbitration agreement that waives the right to seek the statutory remedy of public injunctive relief in any forum is contrary to California public policy and therefore unenforceable," the District Court judge wrote at the time.

ADATA Releases the XPG SX8100 SSD: Make It Fast & Hold the Bling

Par Anton Shilov

While many gaming-branded components come adorned in RGB LEDs, there is thankfully still a market for plainer and saner products. To that end, ADATA has introduced its new family of high-end SSDs — the XPG SX8100 — that promises leading-edge performance without any unnecessary bling.

Intending its XPG SX8100 SSDs as high-end parts aimed at performance-demanding consumers, ADATA will offer them in 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB configurations. The drives are based on Realtek’s RTS5762 controller (8 NAND channels, PCIe 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3, LDPC, etc.) and 3D TLC NAND, and like virtually all mainstream NVMe drives, the SX8100 comes in M.2-2280 form-factor. The new family of SSDs is ADATA’s second lineup of drives (after the XPG Spectrix S40G) to use Realtek's top-of-the-range controller.

As far as performance is concerned, ADATA rates the drives for up to 3.5 GB/s sequential read speeds and up to 3 GB/s sequential write speeds when SLC caching is used (data based on CDN benchmark, other benchmarks show lower numbers, more information is available here). As for random performance, the SX8100 drives can hit up to 300K/240K random read/write 4K IOPS, which is a bit lower when compared to the XPG Spectrix S40G.

One of the possible reasons why ADATA rates random performance of the XPG SX8100 below that of the blingy XPG Spectrix S40G could be because the new drives are not equipped with a heat spreader. While these are not necessary for moment-to-moment usage, they can help to sustain performance under high loads when these high-end controllers get hot. The upside to forgoing a heatsink however is that it allows the XPG SX8100 to be used with laptops, as well as any other devices that can't fit an M.2 drive with a heatsink.

When it comes to endurance and reliability levels, ADATA’s XPG SX8100 drives are covered with a five-year warranty and are rated for 320 TB, 640 TB or 1280 TB written, depending on the drive's capacity. Overall, the drives are good enough for around 0.3 DWPD over a five-year period, which in line with other modern consumer-grade SSDs.

TBW 320 TB 640 TB 1280 TB
MSRP $89.99 $159.99 $329.99
Additional Information Link

ADATA will start sales of its XPG 8100 SSDs in the near future for $89.99 - $329.99 depending on capacity. Expect real-world prices of these drives to be below those of the XPG Spectrix S40G (which uses the same controller) and more or less in line with those of the XPG 8200 Pro (which offers similar performance).

iOS 13 ships with known lockscreen bypass flaw that exposes contacts

Par Dan Goodin
iOS 13 ships with known lockscreen bypass flaw that exposes contacts

Enlarge (credit: Jose Rodriguez)

Apple released iOS 13 with a bunch of new features. But it also released the new OS with something else: a bug disclosed seven days ago that exposes contact details without requiring a passcode or biometric identification first.

Independent researcher Jose Rodriguez published a video demonstration of the flaw exactly one week ago. It can be exploited by receiving a FaceTime call and then using the voiceover feature from Siri to access the contact list. From there, an unauthorized person could get names, phone numbers, email addresses, and any other information stored in the phone’s contacts list.

Rodriquez’s video was the topic of more than 100 news articles over the past week. Since iOS 13 was in beta when it first appeared, I assumed Apple developers would fix the bypass in time for yesterday's release. Alas, they didn’t, and it’s not clear why.

Western Digital to Exit Storage Systems: Sells Off IntelliFlash Division

Par Anton Shilov

Western Digital this week announced that it has made a strategic decision to leave the market for dedicated storage systems, as further development of its IntelliFlash and ActiveScale businesses would require additional investments and management focus. The company will sell off its IntelliFlash business to DDN (a specialist in storage systems, AI, and big data) and will explore various strategic options for ActiveScale.

The storage systems market is rather lucrative, but extremely competitive. Over the years, both Western Digital (as well as its HGST division) and SanDisk acquired numerous companies that specialized on hardware and software for datacenter storage, as well as on all-flash storage arrays in order to build highly-competitive storage systems (more details in our coverage of the Western Digital - SanDisk acquisition). Because many product families overlapped each other when Western Digital took over SanDisk in 2016, numerous lineups were divested.

At present, Western Digital only offers IntelliFlash all-flash and hybrid storage systems as well as ActiveScale cloud storage systems. While both product lines look solid in general, they have to compete against broad families of storage systems designed by such giants as Dell EMC, HPE, IBM, NetApp, and Hitachi that control over 50% of the market (according to IDC). Competing against multi-billion enterprises is tough. Moreover, Western Digital supplies its products to many developers of storage systems and the latter certainly do not appreciate it when their suppliers compete against them.

After closing out its storage systems business, Western Digital will continue to offer its storage servers (including JBOX, JBOD, hybrid, and specialized machines) for customers with their own software and infrastructure. Furthermore, the company will keep developing its scalable and flexible OpenFlex NVMe-over-Fabric composable architecture. Essentially, Western Digital will refocus from storage systems to storage platforms, which is a more hardware-centric business.

Here is what Mike Cordano, president and chief operating officer of Western Digital, had to say:

“As we look to the future, scaling and accelerating growth opportunities for IntelliFlash and ActiveScale will require additional management focus and investment to ensure long-term success. By refocusing our Data Center Systems resources on our Storage Platforms business, we are confident that the Western Digital portfolio will be better positioned to capture significant opportunities ahead and drive long-term value creation.”

Under the terms of the agreement with DDN (DataDirect Networks), the latter will buyout the entire IntelliFlash business unit for an undisclosed sum. Furthermore, the two companies will expand their current collaboration through a multi-year strategic sourcing contract, under which DDN will increase its purchase of Western Digital’s HDDs and SSDs.

Western Digital and DDN expect the deal to close later this year.

Sacklers threaten to scrap opioid deal if they aren’t shielded from lawsuits

(credit: Getty | Erik McGregor)

Lawyers for OxyContin-maker Purdue Pharma filed a new complaint late Wednesday threatening that the company’s mega-rich owners, the Sackler family, could pull out of a proposed multi-billion-dollar opioid settlement deal if a bankruptcy judge doesn’t shield the family from outstanding state lawsuits.

Purdue’s lawyers argue that if the lawsuits continue, the Sacklers will have to waste “hundreds of millions of dollars” on legal costs that could otherwise go to claimants in the settlement. The family's lawyers added that in that event, the family “may be unwilling—or unable—to make the billions of dollars of contributions” to the proposed settlement.

State attorneys general, however, argue that the tactic is yet another move designed to shield the Sacklers and their ill-gotten wealth.

Today, Apple shipped units of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max handsets to customers who ordered online, and the phones went on sale in stores around the world. Apple also launched a new Apple Watch, the series 5, today.

Ship times for online orders are already getting long, though. Consumers might have trouble finding the phones in stores today if they hadn't already pre-ordered or stood in line at stores this morning. The US Apple Store website indicates that most configurations of the iPhone 11 Pro will deliver between October 11 and 18 if ordered today. The iPhone 11 looks like it will have a little bit more availability; estimates for delivery are around October 2.

Apple also reopened its Fifth Avenue Apple Store in New York City to considerable fanfare today, with executives in attendance for the product launches.

AMD: Next Gen Threadripper and Ryzen 9 3950X, Coming November

Par Dr. Ian Cutress

In a shock email late on Friday, AMD has released a statement to clarify the situation it is in with its latest Ryzen processors. There's a positive, that the next generation of Threadripper processors will enter the market in November, but the negative is that AMD is delaying its release of the 16 core Ryzen 9 3950X until November as well, citing a high demand for these parts and time is needed to ensure that sufficient stock is available.

The statement from AMD says:

We are focusing on meeting the strong demand for our 3rd generation AMD Ryzen processors in the market and now plan to launch both the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and initial members of the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor family in volume this November. We are confident that when enthusiasts get their hands on the world’s first 16-core mainstream desktop processor and our next-generation of high-end desktop processors, the wait will be well worth it.

As far as we understand, this is nothing to do with recent reports of TSMC requiring 6 months for new 7nm orders: the silicon for these processors would have been ordered months ago, with the only real factor being binning and meeting demand. It will be interesting to see how the intersection of the 16 core with next gen Ryzen will play out.

Ad Astra: A journey upriver to meet your demons, internal and otherwise

Par John Timmer

Brad Pitt stars as an astronaut in search of his long-lost father (Tommy Lee Jones) in Ad Astra.

On its own, the title of this week's blockbuster release—Ad Astra, Latin for "to the stars"—doesn't tell you much about what the film is about. The trailers haven't done much to clarify, promising everything from family drama to violent car chases on the Moon.

None of the details provide much clarity, either. The movie was co-written and directed by James Gray, whose films have tended to be on the critically acclaimed, publicly obscure end of the spectrum and are set in realistic versions of the present. Yet this one is clearly set in a sci-fi future and is loomed over by enormous Hollywood figures including Jones, Pitt, and Donald Sutherland.

The movie holds together much better than that description might suggest. While there's plenty here to nitpick, the film offers an interesting vision of the future and a plot that enables its focused human drama to become central to that future. What follows is a review that will attempt to spoil nothing that wasn't already revealed in the trailers.

La saison 3 d’Apex Legends va débuter ce 1er octobre 2019, rapporte Engadget. Une mise à jour qui va inclure pas moins de 100 items en jeu, un nouvel arsenal d’armes, dont un nouveau Battle pass contenant une nouvelle arme – le Charge Rifle -, un mode de ligues classées amélioré mais surtout, un nouveau personnage jouable : Crypto, qui donne son nom à cette nouvelle saison. Dans le même temps que l’annonce de la saison 3, Respawn, le studio derrière Apex Legends, a dévoilé “Forever Family” ; une courte séquence vidéo dévoilant le background de Crypto. On y voit le personnage  sauter de toits en toits et rejoindre les rues d’Angel City, pour fuir ses assaillants. Un teaser qui aura de quoi régaler les fans de Titanfall et Titanfall 2, autre jeu signé Respawn.

Pour ceux qui n’ont pas encore plongé dans l’univers d’Apex Legends, il s’agit d’un jeu de Battle Royal en free-to-play souvent considéré comme le concurrent direct de Fortnite, dans lequel s’affrontent en équipe des héros, chacun dotés de particularités qui leur sont propres. Gibraltar, dit la forteresse blindée, Mirage l’illusionniste holographique ou encore Nathalie Wattson, la défenseuse statique et maintenant Crypto. La biographie officielle de Crypto le présente comme un personnage “cool, calme, recueilli, qui déploie des drones de surveillance spécialisés pour participer au combat et rester à l’abri des projecteurs”. Crypto vous permettra d’agir dans l’ombre et d’épauler vos camarades de jeu à distance. Il assurera le monitoring, afin de permettre à l’équipe de prendre le dessus sur leurs adversaires.

Western Digital Launches iNAND IX EM132: eMMC SSDs For Embedded Industrial Applications

Par Anton Shilov

Western Digital this week has introduced its first family of embedded eMMC storage devices for industrial and IoT applications. Based on the company's 64-layer BiCS3 3D TLC NAND memory, the new iNAND IX EM132 drives offer up to 310 MB/s read speeds as well as enhanced endurance and reliability by supporting various features designed specifically for embedded, commercial, industrial, and similar environments.

Western Digital’s iNAND IX EM132 embedded flash drives are based around an in-house controller that supports an eMMC 5.1 HS400 interface along with an advanced ECC, wear leveling, bad block management, and RPMB (replay protect memory block). The eMMC drives also support smart partitioning (multiple partitions with different features and purposes to provide device makers some additional flexibility), auto/manual data refresh (automatically rewrites all the information to ensure that even rarely accessed data is available when needed), as well as all the usual management and monitoring interfaces you'd expect from a contemporary SSD.

Available in an industry-standard BGA package that measures by 11.5×13×1 mm, Western Digital is offering capacities between 16 GB and 256 GB. When it comes to performance, the eMMC drives are rated for up to 310 MB/s sequential read speeds, up to 150 MB/s sequential write speeds, and up to 20/12.5K random read/write IOPS. As for endurance, the drives are rated for up to 693 TB to be written, though that rating is likely based on the high-capacity SKUs.

Western Digital will offer Commerical, Industrial Wide as well as Industrial Extended versions of its iNAND IX EM132 eMMC drives. The Industrial Wide devices feature an operating temperature rating between -25°C and 85°C, whereas the Industrial Extended can operate in the most extreme environments with temperature ranges between -40°C and 85°C.

Ack! The tall human grabbed a broom! HONK!

No, no, no, no, no, run away, run away! I'm gonna lift my worthless wings (curse these loosey-goosey things) and trot away, trot trot trot. Don't sweep me, ma'am...

OK. Whew. Gosh, in the madness of running away, I forgot that I have her carrot. It's in my beak.

Huawei Watch GT 2 : 14 jours d’autonomie

Par Pierre Lecourt

Huawei vient de faire la présentation de ses nouveaux modèles de smartphones avec en toile de fond les soucis de la marque avec l’administration US. Mis à part ses smartphones, le constructeur présentait également une nouvelle version de sa montre Best Seller, la Huawei Watch GT 2.


La première montre GT de Huawei s’est écoulée à plus de 10 millions d’exemplaires et a permis au constructeur de s’imposer comme un acteur important de ce marché. Le nouveau modèle ne bouleverse donc pas énormément les habitudes et mise sur  l’autonomie pour séduire.

2019-09-20 17_36_36-minimachines.net

La Huawei Watch GT 2 promet donc jusqu’à 14 jours d’autonomie en utilisation classique pour le modèle 46 mm. Un peu moins pour la version 42 mm qui se distingue par un design moins épais. Les deux proposent un écran OLED de même taille. 1.39 pouces avec une belle luminosité de 1000 nits maximum. 

Le modèle 46 mm mesurera 45.9 de diamètre pour 10.7 mm d’épaisseur pour 41 grammes. La version 42 mm affichera 41.8 pour 9.4 mm et 29 grammes.

La marque a retenu la proposition d’un affichage toujours actif ce qui la distingue de beaucoup de montres concurrentes. Pas besoin d’effectuer un mouvement de poignet pour lire l’heure, la montre affichera en permanence son cadran.

La marque promet également de meilleures performances avec un SoC ARM Kirin A1 de HiSilicon, sa filiale spécialisée dans le développement de puces ARM. Il s’agit d’une puce intéressante puisqu’elle propose du Bluetooth 5.1 BLE pour des transmissions à la fois longue portée et rapides. Ainsi la montre Watch GT 2 promet des passages d’appels en Bluetooth sur des distances de 150 mètres avec son smartphone. On pourra décrocher et discuter via sa montre et une oreillette même si on a oublié son smartphone dans sa veste. Le SoC permettra également d’envoyer un signal BT-UHD (Bluetooth Ultra High-Definition Audio) pouvant atteindre 2.3 Mbps. La montre accueillant un stockage interne, il sera possible de s’en servir comme lecteur musical en balade.

2019-09-20 17_44_33-minimachines.net

D’un point de vue performances pures, les besoins de la montre ne sont pas énormément différents de la première génération. La GT1 tournait avec un SoC ARM Cortex-M4, la nouvelle solution sera deux fois plus puissante. La marque continue d’exploiter LiteOS, un Linux développé pour ces appareils spécifiquement et qui propose ses propres interactions.

On retrouvera donc de nombreux modes sportifs, les fonctions de base habituelles comme la fréquence cardiaque, une fonction podomètre, les notifications, alarmes et autres fonctions chronomètres. A noter que le capteur cardiaque fonctionnera sous l’eau ce qui devrait, puisque la montre est étanche, intéresser les nageurs.

La Huawei Watch GT 2 46mm est annoncée à 249 euros, la 42 mm à 229 euros. La date de commercialisation prévue en Europe est prévue pour le mois d’Octobre… si tout va bien.

Ancient slag offers insight into the uneven pace of technological advances

Sometimes, clues about ancient technology are hidden in the most mundane things. In this case, Tel-Aviv University archaeologist Erez Ben-Yosef and his colleagues went rummaging through heaps of slag, the glassy waste discarded after smelters separate copper from its ore. Their goal? To hunt for clues about industry and innovation in the ancient Edomite Kingdom.

Less copper mixed with the slag suggests more-efficient smelting, so by tracking changes in the slag, Ben-Yosef and his colleagues could track the progress of a technology that powered the ancient world.

The archaeologists found mostly small, gradual improvements over the course of five centuries, punctuated by a sudden, drastic increase in efficiency around 925 BCE in the wake of an Egyptian invasion of the area. That suggests that a model for the evolution of new species may also apply to human technology and that we may need a little instability to break out of equilibrium and trigger bursts of innovation. It also reveals how one society in particular benefitted from the Bronze Age Collapse and later took advantage of the disruption of a foreign invasion to make a leap forward in technology.
