Bitcoin mining platform hacked, 56M gone

Sorry, 2 Bitcoin stories in the same day, I apologize in advance to everyone who is sick of hearing Bitcoin news.

It's being reported that NiceHash, which is a Bitcoin mining program, has been breached and potentially has seen 56 million USD worth of Bitcoin disappear. 

I'm sure there will be a few customers of theirs that aren't so happy but unfortunately their paths of recourse are pretty much zero.

Google to remove YouTube support from Amazon Fire TVs

The battle between Amazon and Google has heated up once again with Google announcing they'll be pulling YouTube from Amazon Fire TV devices come January 1st, 2018.

This has been going on for a while with Google accusing Amazon of not following their terms of services and blocking Fire TV users a few months back. Amazon then figured out a workaround which of course didn't make Google all that happy and now they are once again putting a stop to Amazon Fire TV users from using their services.

I'm sure none of this has anything to do with the fact that they both sell competing media devices...

Arstechnica hs the full story.

This drastic measure comes a few months after Google blocked YouTube access for Amazon’s Echo Show device. At the time, both sides blamed the other. Google claimed Amazon’s implementation of YouTube on the Echo Show violated its “terms of service” and created a “broken user experience.”

Amazon recently got YouTube to work again on the Echo Show, but in a roundabout way that wasn’t sanctioned by Google. The new version also overlaid voice commands on the on-screen controls, which Google claims also violates its terms of service. That version of YouTube will be blocked immediately while the Fire TV app won't work, starting January 1, 2018.

ADATA @ CES 2013

We had the chance to sit down with ADATA at CES 2013 and check out the latest and greatest from them. ADATA is most famous for their DDR memory, Flash drives, SSD’s and memory cards and over the years we’ve had the chance to take a look at a few of them and have always been happy with the performance and quality. ADATA has a full lineup of SSD and memory products on display. one of which is their lineup of M.2 (NGFF) SSD drives which are designed for things like Ultrabooks where a full 2.5" drive just won't fit.

This year at CES ADATA is showing off a new product, the DashDrive Air. The DashDrive Air is a great portable device that can wirelessly transfer files to and from a SD card to your smartphone (Android or iOS). The DashDrive also has a battery inside which allows you to charge up any USB device. If thats not enough for you, the DashDrive Air can also act as a wireless hotspot and share a wireless connection with up to 8-10 devices (depends on model of DashDrive). The DashDrive Air comes in two models, the AE800 (which features an internal 500GB hard drive instead of having to use SD cards) and the AE400 (which is a bit smaller and uses an SD card for storage). The combination of a power bank, wireless hotspot, and wireless file storage makes this a very interesting product and could make it a great travel accessory.

Samsung Super Booth with SuperUHD at CES 2015

We stopped at Samsung's booth again this year at CES and they always have a ton of beautiful products. That's one thing that I have grown to appreciate about Apple and Samsung is the fact that they are serious about product design. Samsung showed off their S-UHD TVs, Super Smart TVs (with PlayStation Now) in addition to Gear VR that's been out for a while and also some amazing speakers that look like Portal Turrets. 

 

Of course their curved screens are making their way into computer LCDs and both they had a bunch of curved 4K monitors on displays to give you an idea of what is possible.
