vivo Z1 Lite arrives with gradient color and vivo V9’s body

What a beautiful day for launching smartphones said a vivo executive, probably. The vivo Y95 appeared in the Philippines just as the vivo Z1 Lite was quietly listed at the company website today. It has the same footprint as the vivo V9 midranger but with a fancier back panel and less impressive cameras. The vivo Z1 Lite comes with a Snapdragon 626 chipset that has its octa-core CPU running at 2.2 GHz. There is 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage on board with a microSD slot for up to…

Cyber-attackers aim for schools and universities

On 17 September 2018, an unknown cyber-attacker launched a DDoS attack against Infinite Campus, a large, established information management company. No one reported a data breach or stolen information, but the attack disrupted the operations of several customers and data stores. Before you say, “Unfortunately, that’s not news,” consider these news-worthy facts: The exploit is part of a growing trend of school-related exploits. The attacker aimed malware at a website portal, a seemingly unlikely target. The attack volume and duration were many times greater than anything the company experienced before….

BlizzCon 2018: Warcraft III remastered, and Overwatch gets a new cowboy

BlizzCon 2018 is the end of an era. Just a few weeks ago, Blizzard announced that co-founder and longtime president Mike Morhaime would be stepping down, replaced with J. Allen Brack. Today’s Opening Ceremony kicked off with Morhaime saying goodbye, and you know what? I’ll miss him. He was a great presenter, not in the overly slick way I’m accustomed to seeing at these sorts of shows, but with a quietspoken passion for the company he’d helped guide for 20-plus years. Blizzard lives on, though, and while 2019 won’t be…

EVGA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Black Edition graphics card hits the fabled $999 price point

When Nvidia announced the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at Gamescom, it said that models starting at $999 would be available. But in reality, all the custom models available since launch meet or exceed the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition’s hefty $1,200 price point. Asus announced the $999 RTX 2080 Ti Turbo with a blower-style fan, but we’ve never actually seen it available despite being listed on Newegg. A new EVGA offering promises to finally bring big Turing below $1,000. As first noticed by Hot Hardware, EVGA has listed…

Apple stores now stocking iPhone XR but pre-ordering is still smarter

Today is the day the iPhone XR starts to fill the shelves in Apple stores but you’re still not guaranteed a pickup. Many stores will have the phone stocked but not all.

Android Confidential: Just how big is that notch on the Google Pixel 3 XL anyway?

The notch. By now it’s become a fairly commonplace feature on premium phones. Even some budget handsets are starting to get in on the act. But the Google Pixel 3 XL reignites the notch frenzy. Why? Because it’s so damn big. Google didn’t just add a normal screen cutout to the top of its latest flagship phone, it added the biggest one I’ve ever seen, big enough to house two cameras and a speaker. I generally don’t mind phone notches, but there’s something about the Pixel 3 XL’s that really…
