  • How to tell if your Facebook has been hacked (and what to do) - Social Network [ VIDEO ] | Technology

    Here's a simple way to see if there is someone messing with your Facebook account.

    There are several different ways hackers use a breached Facebook account. Automatic logins through Facebook allow hackers access to many different site accounts once they've taken over your Facebook. Spammers also hack Facebook accounts to gain access to your following. From your profile, a hacker can additionally gather a lot of personal information about you that can be used to steal your identity.

    How to check if you've been hacked

    If you worry that your account has been hacked, there is a simple way to check. Go to the arrow in the upper right-hand corner of your Facebook page and click on it. In the menu, select Settings. A new menu will pop up. Choose Security and then Where You're Logged In.

    A list of all of the devices that you've logged into and their locations will pop up. If there is a login you don't recognize, chances are you may have been hacked. If you see anything that isn't you, click End Activity on the right side of the log to end the session. The hacker will be logged out, temporarily.

  • How to post 360-degree photos to Facebook | Technology

    Sharing regular photos with your Facebook friends is a thing of the past -- the future revolves around interactive pics.

    By now, you've undoubtedly come across an interactive photo whilst browsing your Facebook feed. Such photos instruct you to hold your phone up and move it around to view different parts of the photo.

    It's a fun way of viewing so-called 360-degree photos. And would make one believe you need fancy, or expensive equipment to make it happen. The truth is, however, you don't need a special camera or even a 360-degree photo app in order to upload your own interactive picture.

  • Shares in UK chip designer Imagination Technologies have plunged more than 60% after Apple said it would end a deal to use its products | Technology

    The US company uses the UK firm's chip technology in its iPhones, iPads, and iPods under a licensing agreement.

    Apple's royalty payments account for about half Imagination's revenues.

    Shares fell 165p to 103p, valuing the company at about £250m - down from about £765m before the announcement was made on Monday morning.

    Imagination said Apple, its largest customer, would stop using its products in "15 months to two years".

    Apple is developing its own technology, but Imagination said this would be difficult without infringing patents.

    Apple has told Imagination that it is "working on a separate, independent graphics design in order to control its products and will be reducing its future reliance on Imagination's technology".

    Imagination, like the UK's ARM Holdings, is at the forefront of computer chip technology globally. ARM was sold last year to Japan's Softbank, a deal criticised as selling out of the UK's winners.

    The Financial Times reported last year that Apple, which owns 8% of the UK company, had held talks about buying Imagination.

  • Intel’s “Kaby Lake” Processors Are So Powerful, You Won’t Need Graphics Card | Technology

    Intel has revealed its 7th Generation Core line, which is code-named “Kaby Lake” will have powerful new graphics capabilities and can handle 4K graphics without any glitch.

    Intel’s “Kaby Lake” Processors Are So Powerful, You Won’t Need Graphics Card

    What if someone tells you that the upcoming 7th gen Core processors would be able to handle 4K graphics without any glitch? It sounds impossible, but it is actually true. If we have a look at our Intel’s integrated graphics processor, then they have failed to deliver performances like Nvidia Titan X or Radeon Pro SSD.

    A graphics processing unit (GPU), also occasionally called visual processing unit (VPU), is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations and game consoles.

    Kaby Lake is Intel’s codename for the upcoming 14-nanometer successor to the Skylake microarchitecture. It will feature a new graphics architecture to improve performance in 3D graphics and 4K video playback.

    ntel CEO Brian Krzanich revealed the Kaby Lake processors during its IDF 2016 Developer conference and shows the capabilities of Intel’s next-gen Kaby Lake chips on a Dell XPS. The best part is the 7th gen Core processor swiftly handled the 4K GoPro videos and showed us the gameplay of the Game Overwatch without any need for a GPU.

    Kaby Lake will add native USB 3.1 Generation 2 Ports, whereas Skylake motherboards require a third-party add-on chip in order to provide USB 3.1 (10 Gbit/s) ports. Kaby Lake will add native HDCP 2.2 support, along with full fixed function HEVC Main10/10-bit and VP9 10-bit hardware video decoding.

    Before Kaby Lake, Cannon Lake was scheduled to launch this year. However, Intel seems to change its mind and went on with Kaby Lake. The 10nm-based Cannon Lake was scheduled to launch at 2017.

    Kaby Lake devices should start arriving this fall, so stay tuned for more on when you can get in on Intel’s next generation of powerful processors.
