Trump Signs Bill Banning on the Kaspersky Security Products from use of US Government



The controversy has gone months, and finally, President Trump signs the law on Tuesday which imposes the ban on Kaspersky from Federal use.

Last September Department of Homeland Security (DHS) release immediate order to Federal executive branch departments and agencies to take actions related to the use or presence of information security products, solutions, and services supplied directly or indirectly by AO Kaspersky Lab or related entities.

Ban imposed due to a lot of spying activity Controversy against the Kaspersky Products.They are in use by all US Government Agencies including NSA.

This incident reported by The Wall Street Journal says Russian Government Hackers are using Kaspersky software to stole NSA advance cyber weapons such as secret spying tools from NSA contractor personal Home Computer who has been employed the Russian Based Kaspersky Security Products.

Kaspersky continues to deny that they have not tied up with any government and it would not help a government with cyber espionage.Also, the company said they could open source code for review.

On Tuesday, Christopher Krebs, a senior cybersecurity official at the Department of Homeland Security, told that nearly all government agencies had fully removed Kaspersky products from their networks in compliance with the September order, reported Reuters.

Ban imposed according to SEC. 1634. According to the ban No department, agency, organization, or other element of the Federal Government may use, whether directly or through work with or on behalf of another department, agency, organization, or element of the Federal Government, any hardware, software, or services developed or provided, in whole or in part.

(1) Kaspersky Lab (or any successor entity);

(2) any entity that controls is controlled by, or is under common control with Kaspersky Lab; or

(3) any entity of which Kaspersky Lab has majority ownership.

“The case against Kaspersky is well-documented and deeply concerning. This law is long overdue, and I appreciate the urgency of my bipartisan colleagues on the Senate Armed Services Committee to remove this threat from government systems,” Shaheen wrote in a press release.

Chrome Apps are dead, as Google shuts down the Chrome Web Store section

Google says Progressive Web Apps are the future of app-like webpages.



More than a year ago, Google announced that Chrome Apps would be removed from Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of Chrome (but not Chrome OS) some time in 2017, and it seems we’ve come to that point today. Google has shut down the “app” section of the Chrome Web Store for those platforms, meaning you can’t install Chrome Apps anymore. Google has started sending out emails to Chrome app developers telling them that Chrome Apps are deprecated, and while previously installed apps still work, the functionality will be stripped out of Chrome in Q1 2018.

As Google explained in its blog post last year, Chrome apps are being killed because no one uses them. In the post, Google said that “approximately 1 percent of users on Windows, Mac and Linux actively use Chrome packaged apps.” Chrome Apps came in two varieties: “packaged apps” and “hosted apps.” Hosted apps were basically glorified bookmarks, which makes little sense on a real desktop OS but gave Chrome OS users a way to pin important webpages to certain parts of the UI. The more powerful Chrome Apps were “packaged apps,” which could run in the background and access hardware like USB ports. Both were desktop-only features, and now both will exist as Chrome OS-only features.

There’s also Chrome Extensions, which are still desktop only and aren’t going anywhere. Extensions are also installed through the Chrome Web Store and usually live next to the address bar as buttons. This is the plug-in point for password managers, script and ad blockers, and mail checkers, and even the occasional fully fledged “app,” like Google Hangouts for Chrome.

Google wants to throw yet another app type into the mix, though. With the shutdown of Chrome Apps, Google is working to bring Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) to the desktop. PWAs again aim to bring a few app-like features to websites, giving them a full-screen interface, an “installable” app icon, push notifications, and offline capabilities. They already work on Chrome for Android, so once Google is done here, PWAs would be the only Chrome app type to work across desktop and mobile.

Progressive Web Apps are not Chrome-specific. PWAs aren’t exactly a “standard” but are a catch-all phrase for a combination of existing W3C standards like a Web app manifest for app icons and service workers for push notifications and background updates. Because of this, other companies are jumping on the PWA bandwagon: it works on Samsung Android phones in the Samsung browser, Firefox on Android, and Opera on Android. PWAs got a big boost to move beyond Android when Microsoft announced it was bringing PWAs to Windows 10, and even Apple has slowly started work on adding PWA support to Safari.

Google says it is “roughly targeting mid-2018” for PWA desktop apps. There’s still no word on removing Chrome Apps from Chrome OS, though. If only 1 percent of users used Chrome Apps when it was supported on the major desktop OSes, you’ve got to wonder how dead and abandoned the platform will be when it is only available on Chrome OS.

Linux Successes (And Failures) in 2017


Linux Successes

Linux Gaming: Despite what you may hear from those gamers who are game title loyal to Windows-specific video games, 2017 has been a decent year for gaming on the Linux desktop. Some of the most notable games have come from video game publisher, Feral Interactive. Notable title examples provided by this publisher include XCOM 2, Tomb Raider, Mad Max, and Total War: WARHAMMER (among other great game titles).

Discovery and installation of great Linux games is possible because of Steam (Valve), GoG.com, and the Humble Bundle. It’s also worth noting that crowd sourcing efforts on Kick Starter (among others) has also given Linux gaming a fair bit of traction. I think overall, Valve’s Steam client provides the best example of Linux game discovery and even curation thanks to the ample reviews and user generated lists to help gamers decide on their next purchase.

It’s also worth mentioning that there are actually entire distros dedicated to Linux gaming. The first one, based on Debian is called Steam OS as it’s provided by Valve. Steam OS makes sense if you plan on running it as a dedicated gaming box or pre-installed on a “Steam Machine.”

Another great gaming distro that I personally think is vastly more interesting than Steam OS is Sparky Linux. While it lacks the big company backing found with Valve’s offering, it does come with WINE support pre-installed. This is useful for those of you who also enjoy playing WINE supported Windows games on your Linux box. I also love how it utilizes a lightweight desktop environment which means more resources are dedicated to your Linux gaming.

Linux Docker and Kubernetes: Rather than deep diving into the incredibly complex differences between VMs and containers, I’m simply going to point out that container technology for 2017 has been red hot. What started with Linux containers evolved into what we see with Docker today – dedicated single application LXC containers (and much more these days). Historically Docker’s claim to fame is that it allows you to run single process application environments. And perhaps this is part of the reason why Docker has been so popular. Docker has taken away the hassle of distributing applications into environments that might otherwise not play nicely with the provided application in the Docker container. In layman’s terms, Docker is basically a flexible container platform. And it’s not just popular in 2017, it’s going to grow even more popular in 2018.

Then we have the container storage platform known as Kubernetes. This Google sponsored storage platform is often said to be flexible, yet more complicated than other container platforms. The best comparison with Docker would be to compare Kubernetes with Docker Swarms. In all honesty while Kubernetes has seen a great deal of press in 2017, Docker continues to be the buzz word to watch as we enter the new year.

Linux VARs (Dell, System76, etc): Overall, 2017 has been a great year for Linux VARs (value added reseller). Dell has stepped up their Linux offerings just as System76 also has taken recent steps to create their own distro based on Ubuntu. With Dell, locating their Linux laptops isn’t as straight forward as other Linux computer sellers. The easiest way is to browse their offerings then sort by operating system.

Be mindful however, you will need to browse Dell laptops for work. If you try this for home offerings, your only option is Windows 10. Personally, Dell will never get my money because they tend to run hot and cold with Linux on the desktop. But despite my own personal misgivings, they are ramping up their XPS notebook offerings. I have seen a lot of adoption for their XPS line in 2017 and believe we’ll see more of it in 2018.

System76 by contrast, is a Linux ONLY computer seller. Bundle this with a much cleaner website design, locating a new computer that supports Linux first is a far easier endeavor than those computer providers that try to support “everything” in the OS space.

No matter which VAR you choose to buy from, the one thing they all have in common is growth. Despite the reported marketshare not being what we might hope, the fact is people are clearly buying new Linux PCs with Linux pre-installed. And that’s a very positive thing that has been great for 2017. Some people might question why someone would want to buy a computer at a premium with Linux installed vs buying a Windows PCs and installing Linux manually.

The easiest answer is long term support. If I buy with Linux pre-installed, any VAR worth buying from will offer me help should I run into hardware compatibility issues down the road. Buying with Windows pre-installed and then installing Linux myself means I’m on my own. While I’m comfortable with this, some people simply prefer to have things “just work” without any extra guesswork. For example: Google AMD video card or Broadcom wifi and the word Linux. This and hybrid graphics are why people are willing to pay a little extra for something that doesn’t require additional work.

Super Computers: As of 2017, Linux is “the” operating system running the world’s supercomputers. Yes, there are supercomputers that run Microsoft Azure. However there is absolutely no question that supercomputing belongs exclusively to Linux. The most notable aspect to Linux supercomputers in 2017 is that China has taken the lead in this area over the US. My prediction is that as we move beyond 2017 into the new year, the US will be playing catch up and that means even more Linux being used in supercomputing.

Linux Failures

Marketing and presence within online marketplaces: Some might be quick to point out that perhaps the biggest failure for Linux on the desktop is the lack of marketshare. Considering the decline of the desktop computer as a whole and the fact that Android (powered by Linux) is the number one OS out there, I think the entire debate on marketshare is a matter of perspective.

Setting that aside, I see the real failure for Linux being the lack of a brick and mortar presence. And while I completely understand the tremendous hurdle it is to get shelf space at various big box stores, I remain disgusted at the Linux VAR offerings on Amazon, NewEgg and TigerDirect. There is zero excuse for this and I will go to my grave maintaining this isn’t as hard as we’re lead to believe.

First of all, anyone can sell on Amazon. I’ve sold on Amazon for goodness sake! So while it could be argued as cost prohibitive to be a “feature” in the computer section of Amazon or other online seller sites, it’s pure foolishness not to find a way to make your offerings available on these sites “officially.”

Now to be clear, System76 does indeed have an Amazon presence which is awesome. Unfortunately, I believe it’s limited and would be better suited if they teamed up with Dell or other to co-op a “Welcome to Linux” presence page on Amazon. For example, have a featured space on Amazon when I browse to Computers and Tablets. When I browse to that page, I’m limited to Microsoft, Google and Apple only offerings. This is because those companies likely pay a premium to be the de facto offerings in this section. Imagine if “Linux” was also offered; listing various Linux VARs? I actually presented this idea to a couple Linux VARs and was met with a lukewarm reception to the idea.

Currently the marketing for Linux VARs is limited in my opinion and will continue to advertise to an existing audience of people who already know who they are and what they do (press releases, “reviews” and other related activities that don’t introduce Linux to frustrated Windows users or PC gamers who don’t realize how far Linux gaming has evolved). Adword campaigns only go so far, folks. Moving on.

Overcoming legacy software hurdles: This has continued to be a tough one. Trying to get a Photoshop user or someone who has extensive work with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to utilize open source alternatives on Linux simply isn’t going to happen. I know, I’ve migrated countless Windows users over the years. The success of these migrations usually hinged upon how deep into legacy programs the user was attached to that were Windows only.

While there are some success stories on this front, there are just as many stories of people who switched back due to various frustration with having to change their work-flows to meet the needs of their new desktop operating system. I completely understand this. As a GIMP and LibreOffice user, I feel completely lost and frustrated using Photoshop and MS Office products. I simply don’t enjoy changing my work-flow and those coming from Windows often feel the same way, just in reverse.

How about you? Have you felt that 2017 has been a good year or a backpedaling year for the Linux desktop? Hit the Comments and let’s talk about it.

Twitter Officially Giving 280 Characters To Tweet



Yes you heard right, now Twitter is not limit to 140 characters its increase up-to 280 characters. Twitter is the biggest Social networking website is expanding its character limit.

We – and many of you – were concerned that timelines may fill up with 280 character Tweets, and people with the new limit would always use up the whole space. But that didn’t happen. Only 5% of Tweets sent were longer than 140 characters and only 2% were over 190 characters. As a result, your timeline reading experience should not substantially change, you’ll still see about the same amount of Tweets in your timeline. For reference, in the timeline, Tweets with an image or poll usually take up more space than a 190 character Tweet, said in blog.

Support Languages:

Twitter said that those who tweeted in languages like Japanese, Korean and Chinese were able to express around double the amount of information in a single character, compared with users who spoke English, Spanish, Portuguese or French, for example.

Uber AI Labs release Pyro- A Deep Probabilistic Programming Language


UBER PyroIn order to Achieve the goal of providing transportation that is reliable to everyone, it requires optimization and effortless prediction at every turn that comes the way. Where, the opportunities and challenges range from matching drivers to riders to suggesting routes, finding sensible pool combinations, or even creating the next generation of intelligent vehicles, to find a solution to these, Uber comes up with the combination of a rich expertise of data scientists, engineers and other users with inculcating the techniques of artificial intelligence (AI). “We are exploring a tool-first approach that will enable us and others to make the next generation of AI solutions.”, Says the Uber Team.

After sharing the fruitful outputs of its research into both artificial intelligence and self-driving cars in general, Uber is now releasing a new programming language called Pyro, a flexible, scalable programming library built on PyTorch that aims in helping the developers to create probabilistic models for research in AI and is a tool to unify the best of Bayesian modeling, modern deep learning, and software abstraction: It is truly a universal, modern, and a deep probabilistic programming language we can say.

Pyro, that is the first public project released by Uber AI Labs, was designed with a motive to make it easier to train computers to infer outcomes. “Pyro is a tool for deep probabilistic modeling, unifying the best of modern deep learning and Bayesian modeling,” wrote Noah Goodman, the member of Uber AI Labs.

The Notable four design Principles that were kept in mind to be satisfied during the creation of Pyro, that is an alpha release were:

  • Universal: The language is a universal PPL that means that it can represent any computable probability distribution.
  • Scalable: It scales to large data sets with little overhead when compared to hand-written code.
  • Flexible: The language aims for automation when the user wants it and control when needed by the user. This is accomplished through high-level abstractions to express generative and inference models, while, on the contrary allowing experts easy-access to customize inference.
  • Minimal: It is maintainable, agile and is implemented with a small core of composable, powerful abstractions.

Pyro is said to touch on interesting aspects in PPL research may it be dynamic computational graphs, deep generative models or even programmable inference. By open sourcing Pyro, it is expected that the scientific world gets encouraged to collaborate on making AI tools more flexible, open, and easy to use. Also, it is hoped that the current version of Pyro, to all the probabilistic modelers who want to leverage large data sets and deep networks, will turn out be of most interest.

Since Pyro is still in its initial state, and Even though, it is still useful for research, when we talk about improvement and changes in the programming language, it is expected to change very rapidly as it is further engaged with deep learning and communities the probabilistic programming. The Possible directions for improving and extending Pyro are many, but their highest-priority directions Include:

In the Long term, it is hoped that the crucial directions of the development of Pyro will be driven by the priorities and applications of the emerging Pyro community. Now, All that is yet to see is where Pyro will come to fruition.

Nintendo Revealed Why There Are Holes On Famicom Cartridges



Famicom cartridges are much different from their American counterparts, but there was one particular difference that has been a mystery for years. Instead of indentations that were used to snap the cart in place, Famicom cartridges have holes. Surprisingly, this is something that Nintendo never explained, until now. In an interview with Japanese website Afternoon News, they revealed that the Famicom cartridges had holes on the top because “they were just part of the design”. Here’s the conversation in full:

Afternoon News: ‘I believe there are holes on the top of [Famicom] cartridges. Do you know what kind of meaning they had?’

Nintendo: ‘Yes, to be honest, they were just part of the design.’

Afternoon News: ‘Um, these aren’t holes made during the molding or the assembly?’

Nintendo: ‘That’s correct. They’re just [part of the cartridge’s] design.’

Afternoon News: ‘Then, the holes on the front and the back of Irem’s cartridges are also design?’

Nintendo: ‘That’s correct. Similarly, that’s the design.’

Microsoft ends support for Office & Outlook 2007, users encouraged to upgrade



Starting this week on October 10th, Microsoft’s Office 2007 suite of programs have begun to transition out of support and users are being encouraged to migrate to either the Office 365 service or Office 2016.

One of the major reasons for users to upgrade is the discontinuation of support for the RPC over HTTP (Outlook Anywhere) protocol which is currently used in Outlook 2007 to communicate between Outlook for Windows and Exchange. The reason for the discontinuation of support for this protocol is because its successor, MAPI over HTTP, boasts significantly higher levels of security and allows for multi-factor authentication in Office 365.

“MAPI over HTTP was not backported to Outlook 2007 or earlier versions. If you’re using Outlook 2007, you will be in an unsupported state on October 31, 2017. If you want to continue to access Exchange Online mailboxes through the Office 365 portal (portal.office.com), we recommend that you move to a current version of Outlook that is under mainstream support, or use Outlook on the web,” the official Microsoft faq recommends. “Additionally, make sure that you don’t have any Outlook add-ins or third-party apps that rely on the RPC over HTTP protocol to connect to Office 365 data.”

Still using Windows 10 version 1511? Upgrade it to a newer release before October 10



Microsoft is currently busy with the development of the Fall Creators Update, the next Windows 10 release. Although Windows 10 is the last version of the Windows operating, the older versions of Windows 10 will be soon no longer supported. As a result, you will need to upgrade your machine to a newer and supported version of Windows 10.

When Microsoft announced the Windows 10 Creators Update, the company also confirmed that the first Windows 10 feature update ‘November Update’, version 1511 will reach the end of servicing on October 10, next week.

Microsoft recommends that the users should upgrade their machines to a newer version of Windows 10 operating system, otherwise the machines will be vulnerable to hacks. Microsoft still continues to offer updates to the original version of Windows 10 and it is likely that the Windows 10 version 1511 will still be updated but it wouldn’t be the company’s priority.

Microsoft has also revealed that the Windows 10 version 1511 end of service impacts the following editions of the operating system:

  • Windows 10 Home
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 10 Education
  • Windows 10 Enterprise

If you are still using the older version of Windows 10, you should upgrade your machine before October 10. You can head to Settings > Security & Updates > Windows Update to install the latest updates. Alternatively, you can download the ISOs and perform a clean install.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is coming on October 17 with major improvements such as Fluent Design. Microsoft is improving Windows 10 with every new release and it is recommended that the users should keep their devices up-to-date.
