Liz Weston: In ‘SIM swap,’ criminals really have your number

This scam, also known as port-out or SIM splitting fraud, allows criminals to hijack your cell phone number. Once they have your number, the bad guys can clean out your financial accounts, confiscate your email, delete your data and take over your social media profiles. Fraudsters can do all this because many companies — including banks, brokerages, email providers and social media platforms — verify your identity by texting a code to your cell phone. Intercepting those codes can give a criminal an all-access pass to your financial and digital life. This kind of identify fraud has been around for years, but it’s getting more attention after a wave of cryptocurrency thefts and attacks on high profile victims, including Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who briefly lost control of his Twitter account. The potential damage is so great that security expert Avivah Litan, vice president at research firm Gartner Inc., fears losing her phone number far more than having her Social Security number compromised. “I’d rather they took my social, to tell you the truth,” Litan says, “because I care about my retirement money and I know some of it’s protected through phone number access.” What’s more, y...

Whether for a dorm room, an office, or a basement spot to keep snacks and drinks

Whether for a dorm room, an office, or a basement spot to keep snacks and drinks chilled, mini fridges are a smart investment. It’s also a pretty common one. Many of us had a mini fridge in our first apartment and got along just fine.  Small spaces require compact pieces, and these are the best mini fridges because they store food and drinks, and take away our excuses to live off takeout because we “don’t have a big kitchen.” Well, once you get one of these, there’s never an excuse not to have healthy food fresh and ready. “Gourmia mini fridge is a compact and lightweight 6-can mini cooler and warmer that can easily chill up to 32°F. It can also warm up to 150°F. This eco-friendly mini-fridge and warmer is ideal for anyone looking for a portable fridge with a substantial storage capacity,” says Bryan Stoddard of Homewares Insider. Adjustable temperature ranges include refrigerator compartment, freezer compartment, and features adjustable legs and a reversible door that can open from left or right. This fridge has 1.7 cu.ft. interior capacity, and is Energy Star compliant with 1 full width and one 1/2 width removable wire shelves and tall bottle storage. This unit provides 1.7 c...

Court releases photos showing sex toys seized from alleged Adelaide wife-killer Peter Dansie’s suitcase

Photos of evidence seized from the home of an alleged Adelaide wife-killer, including sex toys and condoms, have been released by a South Australian court. Peter Rex Dansie is accused of murdering his wife Helen by drowning her in a pond at Veale Gardens, in Adelaide’s southern parklands, on April 16, 2017. Supreme Court Justice David Lovell today released more evidence tendered in the trial, including photos of items found in Mr Dansie’s Waterfall Gully house and videos of police conducting interviews with the 70-year-old at his home and the alleged crime scene. “When Helen had her stroke 22 years ago, I quit my job at the ABS and spent the next 22 years looking after her. This isn’t just looking after her, this is 24/7,” Mr Dansie told officers. “I’ve travelled extensively with her, I’ve looked after her. I didn’t do this under sufferance, I did it because I wanted to. I wouldn’t see any benefit in then going and killing her.” The photos released by the court show the contents of a suitcase Mr Dansie was allegedly about to take to China about a month after his wife’s death. During his opening address in M...

Oklahoma Artist Creates Hope For Those Who’ve Lost An Eye

An Oklahoma artist never let an eye injury blur her sights on helping others. Instead it guided her down a path she never would have taken otherwise, creating more than hope for those who have lost an eye. With every stroke of her paintbrush Lambert gives her small pieces of art life. She spends five days a week at Dean McGee Eye Institute seeing patients, each who has suffered the loss of an eye. “It’s the window of the soul. When we look into people’s eyes, that’s how we speak to people,” she said. Her understanding comes from losing an eye herself at age 14. However, it’s through her own trauma and a love of art that she found her true calling as an ocularist. “I was stunned at the craftsmanship, just watching her work,” said Lee Green, one of Lambert’s patients. “My mother was mowing, and a rock came from the lawnmower and landed right in the middle of my eye,” Green said. “She really connected like a friend and said this is what we can do for you, these are the possibilities,” she said. Nancy creates about six eyes each week and the patients are there from start to finish, starting with taking an...

For those looking to 3D print on the cheap, AmazonBasics filaments seem to be a perfect

For those looking to 3D print on the cheap, AmazonBasics filaments seem to be a perfect solution. But are they really all that good? We got a spool of PLA to test, so let’s find out! Pretty much everybody has heard of Amazon, the online retail giant. Recently, they have begun offering their own brand of filaments for 3D printing, marketing towards the everyday consumer and hobbyist. The advantages of such a product are obvious: Amazon is a global company and well-known for its reliability. As the filament is their own product, it will always boast the impressively fast Prime shipping, and if you don’t like it, the Amazon return service is legendary. It’s also backed by an Amazon 1-year limited warranty. As for the product itself, well, Amazon hasn’t skimped on quality. Boasting a plus or minus 0.05-mm precision, and “specially engineered to reduce jamming”, this PLA filament sounds quite impressive right off the bat. Also, the spool itself has a very handy gauge on the side that allows you to approximate how much filament you have left – both in meters and by weight. The Amazon Basics PLA is offered in 10-meter samples and 1-kg spools, in both 1.75-mm and 3-mm diameters. ...

I’ve had a really busy summer traveling. I got back to the office last week to

I’ve had a really busy summer traveling. I got back to the office last week to find some great new products: Let’s start with the Triptowin TP10 wired In-Ear Monitors with 5 Balanced Armatures per earpiece and an integrated mic cable for phone use. Back to the grind, let’s take a look, and a listen: My good friends at Linsoul Audio sent the Tripowin TP10 earbuds out with the optional Mic Cable for phone calls. In the cute but small retail box, you will find the two TP10 earpieces, a pre-curved and braided wire Mic Cable, silicone ear tips in size small, medium, and large, and an easy to read instruction pamphlet. The Earpieces have a resin body and aluminum backing and are very lightweight and comfortable. The first device I stuck the Tripowin TP10 into was my Samsung Galaxy phone.  I started streaming music from Amazon Music and other streaming services to get a feel for the mix and drivers. Of course just as I was starting to enjoy what I was hearing, someone called me. GREAT! Unlike wireless IEM systems, the TP10 mic cable allows Phone calls to continue in both ears instead of defaulting to the right ear only. Since I have hearing issues from spending 30 years in live music e...
