The U.S. Department of Justice filed a civil forfeiture complaint after having in March charged two Chinese nationals with laundering more than $100 million in cryptocurrency on behalf of North Korea.

Earlier court filings detailed what U.S. authorities have characterized as Pyongyang’s use of hackers to circumvent sanctions.

“Today’s action publicly exposes the ongoing connections between North Korea’s cyber-hacking program and a Chinese cryptocurrency money laundering network,” Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s criminal division said in a statement.

Towards a truly wireless world

The battery is claimed to last eight hours of playtime on a single charge.

When Apple launched the AirPods in 2016, it set off a new phenomenon-these were wireless earphones that were also a style statement. Almost immediately, other brands followed-some were a rip-off of the AirPods, others had original design. Today, wireless earphones are available for as low as Rs 1,000 to more than Rs 20,000. But like in any product segment, it’s the mid-range that offers the best value-for-money. One of these is Amazfit PowerBuds by Huami, priced Rs 6,999.

The PowerBuds aren’t a rip-off of the AirPods, and these pack a technology punch. These are TWS (true wireless sports) earphones with features such as heart-rate monitoring, magnetic ear hooks, noise reduction for calls, etc., making it not only a good set of earphones, but also a fitness device.

Starlink starts to deliver on its satellite internet promise

john rambo

Back in my childhood hometown in Calhoun County, West Virginia, my high school friend Bill Bailey says his DSL connection gives him an “average speed of 27Kbps.” That’s Kilobits per second. He might do better with a modem. It’s not just him. Tens of millions of Americans who live in the country can only dream of having broadband. The answer to their internet dreams may lie in the skies above them, with SpaceX Starlink satellites.

SpaceX has applied for the Federal Communication Commission’s up-to $16 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF). This is a plan to bring broadband — with download speeds of at least 25Mbps — to six million homes and businesses, which currently have no broadband. As part of its presentation, Starlink showed internet performance tests with download speeds of between 102Mbps to 103Mbps, upload speeds of 40.5Mbps to not quite 42Mbps, and a latency of 18 milliseconds

Xanadu launches quantum cloud platform, plans to double qubits every 6 months

john rambo

Quantum computing startup Xanadu today launched its quantum cloud platform. Developers can now access Xanadu’s gate-based photonic quantum processors with 8-qubit or 12-qubit chips — 24-qubit chips will be available “in the next month or so,” Xanadu founder and CEO Christian Weedbrook told VentureBeat. The startup expects to “roughly double” the number of qubits available in its cloud every six months. The hope is Xanadu Quantum Cloud will let businesses, developers, and researchers build novel solutions to problems in finance, quantum chemistry, machine learning, and graph analytics.

Quantum computing leverages qubits (unlike bits that can only be in a state of 0 or 1, qubits can also be in a superposition of the two) to perform computations that would be much more difficult for a classical computer. Based in Toronto, Canada, Xanadu has been developing quantum computers based on photonics since its founding in September 2016. The choice of technology

Cool Construction Technology

Amazing projects of constructions are being completed around the world as I write this text. Along with new technology, new methods of building are created. From using flying drones to 3D printing smart helmets for workers and solar panels that are transparent, innovations are starting to have almost revolutionary impact on industry of construction. 2016 will be rich year for construction while technology providing even more, increasing job safety, flexibility and accuracy. Drones are starting to be used increasingly by mapping firms, construction firms and also public agencies. In America, aerial vehicles that have mounted camera are being used to track job progress in real time, or identifying hazards that could happen, especially on projects that are more complex and larger. 3D printing is really fascinating, it allows people to print almost anything if you have right printer and materials.

For many years, companies that deal with construction have come

As Web services, cloud storage, and big-data services continue expanding and finding their way into our lives, the gigantic hardware infrastructures they rely on–known as data centers–need to be improved to keep up with the current demand. One promising solution for improving the performance and reducing the energy load associated with reading and writing large amounts of data is to confer storage devices with some computational capabilities and offload part of the data read/write process from CPUs.

In a recent study presented at the 2020 USENIX Annual Technical Conference, researchers from Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST), Korea, describe a new way of implementing a key-value store in solid state drives (SSDs), which

Amazon Can’t Silence Suit Over Voice Software Patents

john rambo

Law360 (September 17, 2020, 4:28 PM EDT) — Amazon can’t escape a patent lawsuit over its Echo and Alexa products after a Delaware federal judge found that claims in Voicebox’s voice software patents it’s being sued over were not invalid for covering an abstract idea.

U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika on Wednesday denied Amazon.com’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought last July by Voicebox Technologies, which accused the tech giant of infringing its patented technology in producing the Amazon Echo and Alexa.

The order follows a hearing from last month where Judge Noreika said Amazon failed to show that the claims it argued were patent-ineligible were representative of the…
