As someone who’s attended so many launch events that he’s lost track of how many, I can tell you that they’re usually messy, raucous occasions where you spend half your time travelling, and the other half jostling with other excited journalists, vloggers, and fans for a chance to get your hands on the shiny new product in question for a precious few minutes.
Sure, the excitement is sometimes infectious and palpable, and there’s something to be said about experiencing a device first hand in a crowded experience zone, and you do get freebies. But, the whole experience can also, at times, be a lot less fun than you would be led to

Facebook has restricted the distribution of the page belonging to conservative talk show host Mark Levin for “repeated sharing of false news,” according to a notice from the largest social media giant Levin shared on his account on Parler.
Levin, a staunch defender of President Donald Trump and a fierce critic of the mainstream media, denies that he’s misled anyone and accused Facebook of “censorship” and “pushing a left-wing agenda.”
“Every link I post is from a legitimate source,” Levin wrote on Parler, a social media site favored by conservatives. “But because so many people are seeing what I’m posting and we’re within weeks of the election, it’s clear that Facebook is trying to influence the election’s outcome.”
It wasn’t clear which posts Facebook found objectionable. The official Facebook page for The
The common cuckoo is known for its deceitful nesting behaviour — by laying eggs in the nests of other bird species, it fools host parents into rearing cuckoo chicks alongside their own. While common cuckoos mimic their host’s eggs, new research has revealed that a group of parasitic finch species in Africa have evolved to mimic their host’s chicks — and with astonishing accuracy. The study is published in the journal Evolution.
Working in the savannahs of Zambia, a team of international researchers collected images, sounds and videos over four years to reveal a striking and highly specialised form of mimicry. They focused on a group of finches occurring across much of Africa called the indigobirds and whydahs, of the genus Vidua.
Like cuckoos, the 19 different species within this group of finches forego their parental duties and instead lay their eggs in the nests of other birds. Each

Infectious viruses come in many shapes and sizes and use slightly different attack mechanisms to make humans and animals sick. But all viruses share something in common: They can only do damage by replicating inside the cells of another organism — their host.
This broad, fundamental process of how viruses trick host cells into making copies of the virus has had a team of Colorado State University scientists captivated for several years. A collaboration between the labs of Monfort Professor Tim Stasevich, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Associate Professor Brian Munsky, in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, is on a mission to understand, in visual detail and with mathematical precision, all aspects of viral attack strategies, including how viruses invade host cell protein-making machinery. Their work, supported by grants from the National Institute of General Medicine and the W. M. Keck Foundation, could provide
Airbnb may be at the heart of a severe security incident as hosts report they are able to inadvertently access private inboxes that are unrelated to their accounts.
On Thursday, Airbnb hosts flooded Reddit, querying the sudden appearance of inboxes that do not belong to them when they signed into the service.

In screenshots of an inbox shared on the platform, Reddit user “Autocasa” said that they had “no association with these people or their apartment names.”
While no guest account, as of yet, has reported similar issues, hosts are saying they are able to see other people’s addresses and other information — such as codes required to access a property — which means that the Airbnb inbox issues could be considered an extremely serious security incident that could compromise the security of people’s homes.
