Well, the 31-year-old actor uploaded what seemed like a .. umm.. well it seemed like she is probably trying to send out cryptic messages. (Source: Deepika Padukone/Instagram, File Photo)

It will not be an exaggeration to say that Deepika Padukone is among the actors who have a strong social media presence. With Alia Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra leading the pack by sharing almost every snippet of their lives, especially on Instagram, Padukone often uses the photo sharing app to share pictures from shoots, to talk about her close ones and family and even about the causes she support and has a result amassed a huge following of over 18 million people. But, one of her latest posts has left the Internet confused. So much so, somebody has even called it ‘as confusing as Covfefe’. Others turned to Ranveer Singh for some help.

Well, the 31-year-old actor uploaded what seemed like a .. umm.. well it seemed like she is probably trying to send out cryptic messages. And being the loving fans that they are, people got down to deconstructing what she probably must have meant when uploading the picture.

“That a metal curve at the end of furniture, probably a chair or a lounge seat,” “Some porcelain top of a temple or lamp shade i guess,” some offered helpfully. Others, well, blinded by their love for Padukone (not your fault, guys) commented “Superb,” “Owsmmm”(Millenials way of writing awesome) on the picture. “It’s a Fleur de lis , the lily flower it’s the sign of life , light and perfection,” “Symbol of bharat scouts and guides,” wrote another Instagram Good Samaritan.

Well, when we looked up, it did look like a certain Fleur de lis and the symbol of scouts — we’d still prefer the Padmavati actor to not leave us hanging on social media like this. As one of her fan aptly puts, “What is this dear Deepika?”

Tesla Loses Autopilot Software Chief After Less Than Six Months

Tesla Motor Inc. associates work on the Model S electric car at the company’s factory in Fremont, California.

Tesla Inc.’s team developing self-driving car capabilities lost a top engineer hired less than six months ago from Apple Inc., adding to a spate of executive shakeups at tech companies competing to put fully autonomous vehicles on the road.

Chris Lattner, who left Apple in January and had been vice president of the carmaker’s Autopilot software, was the hire Tesla touted earlier this year after losing Sterling Anderson, the head of its Autopilot program. Since August, Tesla, Uber Technologies Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Waymo have each lost executives who led their respective self-driving efforts.

“In the end, Elon and I agreed that he and I did not work well together and that I should leave, so I did,” Lattner wrote in an update to his resume. In listing his contributions to Tesla, he wrote that the Autopilot team was in the midst of a challenging hardware transition during his time with the company and struggling with attrition.

Turnover is proving a challenge for companies in a fierce war for the engineering talent needed to develop autonomous vehicles. The auto industry and its regulators are counting on the technology to help make significant reductions in crashes that lead to tens of thousands of injuries and deaths in the U.S. every year.

Talent War

Uber last month fired self-driving car executive Anthony Levandowski, yielding to mounting pressure in its court fight with Waymo after a judge concluded he took thousands of confidential files from the Alphabet unit. Anderson, Tesla’s former head of Autopilot, and Chris Urmson, who for years led Waymo’s self-driving efforts before leaving the company in August, are now running their own startup, Aurora Innovation. A total of 34 companies now have permits to test self-driving cars on California roads.

As traditional automakers, technology companies and startups look to break through with self-driving cars, engineers with expertise in hardware, software or artificial intelligence have an abundance of options. Actual experience leading teams and building autonomous systems is rare, said Sophie Thomas, a principal at recruiting firm Riviera Partners.

“Very few humans on the face of the planet have this skill set,” said Thomas, whose San Francisco-based company does executive-level searches for autonomous driving companies. “Add in the pressure of building a system that can work and won’t kill people on the street — it’s a rare find.”

Tesla Turnover

At Tesla, Jim Keller will take overall responsibility for Autopilot hardware and software, according to the company’s statement. Keller joined from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. in January 2016 and also worked previously for Apple.

As one major executive leaves Palo Alto, California-based Tesla and its Autopilot group, another is joining from OpenAI, the artificial intelligence nonprofit venture backed by Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk. Andrej Karpathy has joined the carmaker as director of AI and Autopilot Vision, reporting directly to Musk and working closely with Keller. Tesla is building its image-sensing technology in-house after parting ways with Jerusalem-based Mobileye NV last summer.

The churn at Tesla goes beyond Autopilot. Shortly after the company announced it would lose Chief Financial Officer Jason Wheeler, Bloomberg News reported in March that more than two dozen executives have left the company within the past year, including vice presidents of finance, communications, regulatory affairs, production, manufacturing, products and programs. Tesla announced last month it hired Gabrielle Toledano as chief people officer — the top human resources role — at the company that now has more than 30,000 employees.

Tesla’s approach with Autopilot has been to field a suite of driver-assistance features that are continuously improved via over-the-air software updates and help build toward more advanced autonomous capabilities. Tesla has said all cars now being made at its factory in Fremont, California, including the forthcoming Model 3, have the hardwareneeded to one day be fully self-driving.

Reaching that capability with the Autopilot system, sold as a $3,000 option for Model S sedans and Model X sport utility vehicles, will require extensive software validation and regulatory approvals. Musk has vowed to demonstrate a fully autonomous Los Angeles-to-New-York cross-country trip by the end of this year.

Microsoft claims facet promises 70% greater battery lifestyles than Chrome

Browser power

Microsoft’s edge browser has been trailing in phrases of adoption and usage, whilst home windows 10 has won growing marketplace share. The agency has launched an legitimate report documenting the strength performance benefits of using edge, the new browser it debuted with home windows 10, in part within the desire of convincing more users to spend time with the utility. Now, Redmond is claiming that part can deliver up to 70% greater battery existence than Google Chrome.

The crew in the back of the metrics published a weblog post wherein they detail how Microsoft conducts its checks, as well as information on its strength checking out criteria and information on how it modifies platforms to measure on the spot power intake
in case you examine over other blog posts, you’ll note that exclusive scenarios gift exceptional evaluation metrics for Chrome, side, Firefox, and Opera. every browser’s overall performance varies depending on the specifics of the workload, however in line with Microsoft, part is continually the steady winner.

Browser energy

manifestly, Microsoft is scarcely a impartial celebration in this front, but information from other components of the net as a minimum indirectly backs up the agency’s claims. exams carried out at BatteryBox from ultimate year showed that Chrome turned into frequently a battery hog on OS X as well. numerous years in the past, Google fixed a Chrome “characteristic” that set the device interrupt timer to tick at its lowest viable cost across the complete working machine. This had a notably poor effect on windows battery life. glaringly different troubles continue to be unresolved, and multiple articles have noted that Chrome doesn’t run specifically well on structures with extraordinarily low-cease hardware.
pace and responsiveness as opposed to battery existence

The battle among responsiveness and strength consumption dates lower back at least as a long way because the creation of Intel‘s SpeedStep technology. Early SpeedStep systems could lower their operating speeds to reduce electricity, but the first iterations of the technology could be thrown off and refuse to spin up its clock speed nicely (or to lessen it while applicable). energy management on present day computers is now sophisticated sufficient that even the “Low powerchoice is often acceptably responsive (though this may vary depending on how many packages you juggle and what your use instances are).

In this point in time, the browser is the application that genuinely each user runs on a daily basis, and consequently the single maximum vital software on the subject of lowering typical system energy consumption. Chrome has constantly been architected with pace and responsiveness in mind. That perfect the browser extraordinarily properly whilst it become a younger upstart tough installed systems like Firefox or internet Explorer. primarily based on battery trying out from multiple sources, Chrome genuinely does use extra battery lifestyles.

whether this may bring about any modifications to Chrome, on the other hand, stays to be visible. Microsoft didn’t get serious about solving problems with internet Explorer 6 until Firefox had already seized 13.5% of the browser market proportion (based on internet applications’ reporting at the time). Chrome’s megastar has been ascendant for some of years, at the price of its competitors at Redmond and Mozilla — until that prevents being the case, Google may also feel it has no reason to reply to these allegations. alternatively, given how critical battery existence is these days, the business enterprise would be foolish to ignore such an obvious performance trouble.

Chrome eats up to 70% extra battery power than area browser, Microsoft claims

Edge uses less battery power

Do you operate Microsoft facet, the default browser protected in home windows 10? a few people have used it once, to head get every other browser version and download it. but if you need your pc daily closing longer earlier than you want daily plug it in, then use side to your browsing – or so claims Microsoft.

Microsoft honestly desires you to apply everyday edge and this time, before the Anniversary update rolls out, the company is crowing approximately how side uses less battery than another browser.

Microsoft sponsored up part strength-saving capability claims by means of three separate assessments. the primary measured browser power consumption in a managed lab environment. the second worried incredible-snooping on users, worded as “realglobal energy telemetry” accumulated “from millions of home windows 10 devices.” The third comes at the side of a time-lapse video of 4 same lapeverydayps streaming the equal video thru 4 specific browsers until the battery dies.

The lab surroundings take a look at used surface Books browsing with Chrome, edge, Firefox and Opera. each daily finished the identical duties, “establishing web sites, scrolling through articles, and looking films, establishing new tabs for every challenge. We used the equal websites you spend some time on – fb, Google, YouTube, Amazon, Wikipedia and more.”
The checks showed facet as the maximum power green browser on home windows 10 “with up to 36%-53% extra battery lifestyles everyday get what you want finished.”

the second check relied on telemetry. “those numbers are from actual windows 10 use ‘in the wild,’ now not artificial exams or hypotheses,” wrote Jason Weber, Microsoft aspect internet platform team direceverydayr. He added, “The billions of information points from these devices are regular with the lab consequences, demonstrating that Microsoft side is more efficient in actualglobal, 66b34c3da3a0593bd135e66036f9aef3 use than the opposition:”
at the start of the 12 months, Microsoft claimed home windows 10 users spent 44.five billion minutes the usage of aspect in only one month. It changed into the same submit with telemetry stats that spark off extra privateness concerns because the wide variety of questions requested of Cortana, the amount of Bing searches, the wide variety of daily viewed through the windows 10 photo app or even the billions of the hours spent gaming were protected within the information Microsoft accrued from windows 10 users.

notwithstanding the ones “billions of mins” in a trifling month, Microsoft’s edge browser barely registers a blip on browser stat analytic reviews. internet market proportion suggests four.99% of surfers used aspect in may additionally 2016, 2.7% of surfers journeying U.S. authorities websites over the past ninety days used side, and StatCounter international Stats put part usage at 2.54% every day this month.
even as Chrome is eating Microsoft’s lunch with regards to browser usage, Chrome is likewise a energy-hungry, battery-ingesting hog consuming your lunch if you are unplugged. within the battery lifestyles test, Chrome crapped out first, draining the battery in approximately 4 hours and twenty mins; doing the precise equal undertaking, Microsoft side lasted over seven hours. In other phrases, aspect ran 70% longer than Chrome, 43% longer than Firefox and 17% longer than Opera.

Internet privacy campaigners warn Snooper’s Charter will cost UK more than £1bn

UK’s ambitious Snooper’s Charter could cost Home Office £1bnGetty Images

Collection of web browsing histories of every UK citizen under the proposed Snooper’s Charter or the Draft Communications Data Bill, proposed by Home Secretary Theresa May, will cost the Home Office more than £1bn ($1.43bn), according to estimates by internet privacy campaigners Don’t Spy On Us. They claimed that the estimated cost is equivalent to employing 3,000 full-time police officers.

The campaigners from the coalition said in a latest blog posted on their website that the estimated cost was calculated on the basis of a similar scheme drawn up by Denmark. However, the Danish government later shelved the project after an Ernst & Young report revealed that the estimated cost of equipment alone was DKK 1b (£105.93m, €134.18m, $151.92m). Annual operating costs will take the bill even higher.

For the UK, with a population 11 times more than Denmark’s, the cost comes to more than £1bn, the blog reads.

The campaigners’ estimate widely differs from the Home Office’s £174m budget allocation to cover the costs of collecting, retaining and storing internet records for over 10 years. Many internet service providers have already cast doubts on the allocation as collecting and maintaining records of all users will require installation of explicit processes that are currently not required for general business operations.

Mark Hughes, the President of BT Security, had told the Joint Committee into the Investigatory Powers Bill in December 2015 that the allocated £174m would cover only his company’s costs, while Hugh Woolford, Director of Operations at Virgin Media, had estimated that his company’s bill could be in tens of millions of pounds.

The campaigners urged the UK government “to come clean on the real costs” of maintaining internet connection records (ICRs) of every citizen. They also called for an independent assessment of the new retention bill.

The Home Office, however, argued that comparing Denmark’s plan with the UK’s is “incorrect”. The Guardian quoted a Home Office spokesperson as saying: “There are a number of fundamental differences between our bill and the Danish model, and the independent joint committee of parliament acknowledged this. It is absolutely incorrect to suggest we are implementing the Danish model.”

The spokesperson suggested that a revised estimate could be revealed in the coming days as the Home Office continues to work closely with communications service providers (CSPs) “to carefully estimate the cost of implementing a system to retain internet connection records”.

“We are determined to implement the legislation in a way that will deliver the maximum operational benefit for the police and law enforcement agencies,” the spokesperson reportedly said.

US IRS Breach Bigger Than First Thought, With Over 700,000 Victims

US IRS Breach Bigger Than First Thought, With Over 700,000 Victims

The IRS said Friday that the number of taxpayers whose tax information may have been stolen by computer hackers now exceeds 700,000 – more than double the agency’s previous estimate.

The tax collecting agency said 390,000 more taxpayer accounts may have compromised than the 334,000 it warned about a year and a half ago. The breach was first discovered in May 2015, and the increase first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

The sensitive information can be used for identity theft or to claim fraudulent tax refunds.

The thieves accessed a system called “Get Transcript,” where taxpayers can get tax returns and other filings from previous years. In order to access the information, the thieves cleared a security screen that required knowledge about the taxpayer.

The IRS says it is immediately moving to notify taxpayers, offering identity theft protection services and giving them access to a program that assigns them special ID numbers that they must use to file their tax returns.

“The IRS is committed to protecting taxpayers on multiple fronts against tax-related identity theft,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “We are moving quickly to help these taxpayers.”

In addition, hackers have tried to access almost 600,000 additional IRS accounts in an attempt to gain private information on taxpayers.

The IRS has earlier said that agency investigators believe the identity thieves are part of a sophisticated criminal operation based in Russia.
