Facebook has admitted the company has been secretly deleting messages sent on Messenger by founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications,” says a Facebook spokesperson in a statement to TechCrunch. “These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s messages in Messenger. We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages.”

Old Facebook messages sent by Zuckerberg have simply vanished in some existing threads, and TechCrunch reports that affected messages no longer appear in Facebook’s download your information tool. Recent messages from Zuckerberg reportedly remain in some users’ inboxes, and the…

Facebook admits it deleted messages Mark Zuckerberg sent, for ‘corporate security’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


TechCrunch reports that Facebook wiped messages that CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent to former employees, as well as people outside the company, from those recipients’ inboxes. The company cited ‘corporate security’ as its reasoning for the move, but it’s never publicly disclosed that it cleared Zuckerberg’s messages out of those conversations. In a statement which mentions the Sony Pictures hack that saw the film production company’s unreleased movies and confidential documents exposed, it explained: After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications. These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s…

With the Most Reused Parts Ever, SpaceX’s Mission Successfully Sent Its Cargo to the ISS

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Unlike the hit song played nonstop on the radio or your mother questioning you about when you’re going to give her grandchildren, rocket launches are one thing that never gets old. That’s lucky, because SpaceX has done two in the span of just four days. Today, the company again launched its Falcon 9 rocket, this time with 2,630 kilograms (5800 pounds) of deliveries to the International Space Station, from the base in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The theme for this launch: reusable. One of the Falcon boosters first flew on the CRS-12 mission in August 2017. And this particular Dragon module flew in April 2016, on the CRS-8 mission. It’s the first time two reused (or, as SpaceX calls it, “flight-proven”) components have been combined in a single mission.

This marks SpaceX’s 14th successful flight for Dragon, and 15th flight overall (CRS-7, in 2015, failed before reaching orbit). It’s the end of the line for this particular first stage — SpaceX did not attempt to recover it, though the engineers did gather information about it to improve future missions.

Today’s launch was perfectly choreographed, no surprises. It’s a testament to how efficiently SpaceX now operates with missions like these. They’ve really got it down to a science. Things can still happen, of course, but nothing abnormal did today.

The Dragon is en route to deliver food, gear, and other supplies to the ISS, according to Space.com. It also contains materials for 50 science experiments conducted there, one fifth of the total experiments on board (more info about research on board the ISS can be found here). According to the Kennedy Space Center website and Space.com, those include:

  • An Earth observatory that will study thunderstorms and how they affect Earth’s atmosphere and climate. 
  • An investigation about how to best make products from metal powders in low gravity in order to improve manufacturing techniques. 
  • Experiments on how to best give plants the proper nutrients as part of continued studies to grow food in space.
  • Studies that analyze how fruit flies and wasps interact in microgravity
  • A study that assesses how space affects bone marrow, blood production, and wound healing

It’s not necessarily as exciting as, say, launching a cherry red sports car into the ether. But it’s still pretty dope.

If everything continues to go according to plan, the Dragon will get within docking range of the ISS around 7 AM ET on Wednesday, April 4, at which point “ISS crew members will use the station’s 57.7-foot (17.6- meter) robotic arm to reach out and capture the Dragon spacecraft and attach it to the orbiting laboratory,” notes a SpaceX press release. And you thought those claw machine games were stressful.

Dragon will be back again. After a month-long stint at the ISS, it’s slated to return to Earth, where, if its descent goes well, it will plop right into the Pacific near Baja California.

‘Fortnite: Battle Royale’ Invites Now Being Sent, Version 3.3 Patch Available Now

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Check your inboxes: the first wave of invites for Fortnite [] on iOS are now going out. Not everyone is going to get in with the initial batch of invites, but Epic promises that more players will get in with the coming days and weeks. Also, if you have a friend that gets acess to the game, they can offer you a code to sign up for the preview event yourself. And there is the cross-platform multiplayer, so if you have the game on PS4, Xbox One, or desktop, you can play with someone who has the mobile version Fortnite is available on the App Store, but for now your Epic Games account must have access to the game in order to play.

It appears that the 3.3 patch, out today, was required before Fortnite‘s mobile invites could start to go out. Epic promised that the mobile Fortnite will feature the same weekly updates as every other version of the game, so while the mobile version will get its own optimizations and performance tweaks, they’ll not miss out on any of the content that everyone else gets. And Epic updates Fortnite on a weekly basis, so there is a lot to keep up with!

Fortnite version 3.3 adds in Remote Explosives, which you can use to detonate opponent’s fortresses in quick fashion. The Supply Llama will appear in unexpected places and provide some sweet loot, but only three will appear per match. They contain 500 wood, stone, and metal; 10 stacks of each ammo type; three traps and consumables. Epic has vaulted the smoke grenade in this update. Version 3.3 also includes Blitz mode, which will enable on March 19th. The storm times are shorter, and the maximum match length is 15 minutes, with changed loot availability.

Check out the full patch notes at Epic’s site. And if you have your invite, get downloading and get playing, let us know what you think!

WhatsApp messages can now be deleted an hour after you sent them by mistake

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

WhatsApp

WhatsApp has quietly changed the way its message deletion feature works. Originally introduced in October, the WhatsApp “delete for everyone” used to only allow you to delete messages up to seven minutes after you sent them. WABetaInfo has noticed that the latest version of WhatsApp extends that time limit significantly to one hour, eight minutes, and 16 seconds.

It’s not clear why the limit is now so specific, apart from being 2^12, and the WhatsApp support pages don’t provide any additional info on the time limit. An hour means you now have far longer to delete messages sent by mistake, or can wipe out entire conversations from a friend’s phone. WhatsApp doesn’t have a secret conversations option like rivals where it creates a…

Of course, Android has long been keeping track of notifications in the hidden log menu. There are some apps that pull data from this menu, but it’s not exposed to users in the settings.

Coinbase tells 13,000 users their data will be sent to the IRS soon

Coinbase told its customers on Friday that it plans to comply with a court order and hand over about 13,000 customers’ data to the IRS within 21 days. The IRS made the request back in November 2016, asking for the Coinbase records of all the people who bought bitcoin from 2013 to 2015 to seek out those who were evading cryptocurrency taxes. Anyone affected by the order should now have received an email from Coinbase to that effect.

Coinbase heavily resisted the summons. But ultimately, in November last year, the San Francisco court ruled Coinbase had to turn over identifying records for all users who have completed transactions of more than $ 20,000 through their accounts in a single year between 2013 and 2015. The data requested includes…

Facebook admits SMS notifications sent using two-factor number was caused by bug

Facebook this evening clarified the situation around SMS notifications sent using the company’s two-factor authentication (2FA) system, admitting that the messages were indeed caused by a bug. In a blog post penned by Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos, the company says the error led it to “send non-security-related SMS notifications to these phone numbers.”

Facebook uses the automated number 362-65, or “FBOOK,” as its two-factor authentication number, which is a secure way of confirming a user’s identity by sending a numeric code to a secondary device like a mobile phone. That same number ended up sending users Facebook notifications without their consent. When users would attempt to get the SMS notifications to stop, the…
