Massive SIM card hack might have been too sophisticated to be caught in time

By about 2 hours ago.

A new Snowden leak a few days ago revealed that the NSA and GCHQ conducted a complex hack operation that focused on obtaining the secure encryption keys that protect mobile communications in devices with SIM cards. A subsequent report revealed that the goal of spy agencies might have been a lot bigger, as they may have been hunting for other security keys that would let them deploy spyware on any mobile device with a SIM card inside, and users would have no idea that anything had happened.

Pebble Time tops Pebble’s original record-breaking Kickstarter campaign in just two days

The project broke every conceivable crowdfunding record, and until last summer, it was the most funded project in Kickstarter’s short history. Then the Coolest Cooler came along and knocked it off its perch.

But in 2015, Pebble is primed to reclaim its place atop Kickstarter. More →

Warren Buffett, the world’s fourth richest man, has the diet of a 6 year old

To call Warren Buffett a successful investor would be a gross understatement. The man who owns nearly 10% of Coca-Cola and is worth nearly $73 billion is, quite literally, the most successful investor in history.

Here’s our first big rumor about Google’s next-gen Nexus phone

It’s way too early for next-gen Nexus smartphone rumors, but a wild report has already emerged out of China many months before Google’s expected launch date for a new Nexus phone. The successor of the Nexus 6 — which we won’t call Nexus 7 just yet, because that would simply be a strange smartphone name considering Google has used it for tablets so far — might be made by an Android device maker from China, according to a post on Weibo posted by someone with knowledge of the matter that was recently quoted by GizmoChina.

By about 8 hours ago.

Far Cry 4 was one of my favorite games of 2014. It builds upon everything that made its predecessor great and it provides dozens of hours of fun, even beyond its lengthy campaign. To this day, my friends and I are still capturing outposts, hijacking trucks and skinning animals for a few hours every week, but we’ll all still readily admit that the game isn’t perfect. More →
