    Thanks for stopping by the live blog. Facebook will report after the close, so we have a few minutes to go over the key themes this go around. Wall Street analysts expect per-share profit of 24 cents a share, which would double what Facebook reported for the first quarter a year earlier. In the fourth quarter, Facebook had 31 cents a share in profit. Analysts expect revenue of $2.4 billion, a meaty 60% jump from a year ago. In Q4, revenue had a similarly big jump of 63% to $2.6 billion. We know Facebook has a ridiculous number of users from around the globe that stretch...

    Just a week before paying $2 billion to buy Oculus VR--maker of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset--Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg tried out Sony's own virtual reality headset, Project Morpheus, it has been revealed. PlayStation marketing executive Guy Longworth said today during a Games Marketing Summit 2014 session that he remembers Zuckerberg asking, "Can I have a tech demo?" for Project Morpheus. Longworth said he wondered why, at the time, Zuckerberg might want to see Sony's headset. Now, it appears Zuckerberg wanted to check in on the rival to Oculus Rift to make sure he was...

    Twitter’s redesigned profile pages were previously available to select users in a staggered rollout that’s been ongoing for weeks, but as of today, they’re available to anyone so inclined to push a button and pull the trigger. The social microblogging network’s new look does indeed, as you’ve perhaps heard, have something of Facebook’s affectations with its newly dominant top-third banner and left-side headshot overlooking a three-column spread, where the central column comprising your tweets occupies about 50% of your browser’s total, width-wise. Twitter Twitter’s covered most of this in...

    Self-taught hackers rule - CSO

    in Security
    Ilio Kolochenko, CEO of High-Tech Bridge, a Swiss information security company, gave the keynote address on governments’ role in cybersecurity this past Sunday at the Regional cybersecurity Summit in Oman. Before his speech, he talked with CSO about why self-taught hackers are generally superior to those who go through a formal certification program, and why compliance with cybersecurity standards will remain low unless governments make it very painful to ignore it. A recent story in The Independent said the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), through approval of...

    Illustration: WIRED Encryption is the best way to protect your online communications from the prying eyes of the National Security Agency. So says NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The rub is that email encryption systems like PGP — short for Pretty Good Privacy — are a real pain for people to use, especially if they’re not steeped in the minutiae of computing. That means few people use PGP, and those who do are in danger of using it incorrectly. But it looks like Google is trying to change that. According to Venture Beat, the search giant working to create a new version of Gmail that...

    How hackers beat the Heartbleed bug NEW YORK (CNNMoney) Want to stay safe on the Internet? It's time to rethink all your passwords. That's what David Kennedy did. He's a security researcher and "ethical hacker," and remembers only one: It unlocks a password vault, an encrypted database that stores dozens of his other passwords. Each one ranges from 30 to 50 characters long. "Even if hackers got access, it's protected and encrypted and keeps it in encrypted format," said Kennedy, who has the tech skills to crack passwords easily. Web security tools are increasingly...

    Still responding to the National Security Agency surveillance revelations, Google is reportedly preparing to help users beef up Gmail security with end-to-end encryption. The search giant is working on a way to make Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) encryption easier to use for Gmail fans, according to a report by Venture Beat. The idea that Google would be working on email encryption is surprising since that would threaten the company's ability to scan email messages for keywords to insert ads—a fact the Venture Beat report acknowledges. Perhaps the company merely wants to make PGP easier to use...

    Some 150 million downloads of Android mobile apps may be vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug, new security research has found. And while there are as many as 17 Android apps that scan for the bug, at least six of them do so using a method that is insufficient. The findings were published last night by three researchers, Yulong Zhang, Hui Xue and Tao Wei, at the computer security firm FireEye. “For the Android platform, we find that roughly 150M downloads of Android apps contain OpenSSL libraries vulnerable to Heartbleed,” they wrote. Strictly speaking, versions of the Android platform —...

    It’s hard to believe that 6-years after the launch of the very first Mophie “juice pack,” there’s still no real “smart” battery case available for smartphones. By “smart,” I mean a case that doesn’t require to be manually turned on – by flipping a dumb switch – when the smartphone runs low in power, and that can preciselydisplay the battery level, beyond just flashing some LEDs on the side of the case! That’s not too much asking in 2014, right? Well, start breathing again because the wait is finally over with the launch of the “Feeling Skin” by Twelve Monkeys Company. The first...

    James Martin/CNET Apple may not have sold as many iPhones as investors and analysts hoped last quarter -- even with the addition of China Mobile as a distribution partner in the world's largest smartphone market -- because some customers may already be holding off and waiting for the larger-screen iPhone 6 rumored to be released later this year. Analysts on average are expecting Apple CEO Tim Cook to deliver $43.5 billion in sales, and profit of $10.19 a share, when the company reports second-quarter earnings after the market closes Wednesday....

    With Google’s Nexus 5 and Motorola’s Moto G, there has been a recent influx of high-powered and inexpensive Android smartphones that you can buy without a two-year contract at a mobile carrier. The next smartphone in this trend just might be the best bang for your buck yet, especially if you’re looking for a smartphone with a huge display. It’s called the OnePlus One. This smartphone has hardware specs that give Samsung’s newest Galaxy Note phablet a run for its money. The price is $299 (16GB version), or the same price as the Note 3with a two-year carrier contract agreement. The...

    How to move your receipts to the cloud

    in Computers
    Move your receipts to the cloud with apps like Evernote. Photo by Nicole Cozma/CNET Some receipts don't offer much information at all -- like those from individually owned gift shops or gas stations. Generally there's a date, the amount, and how you paid. And worse, most receipts are printed on thermal paper, causing all of the information to disappear by the time you need it. Instead of keeping a stack of tiny papers you can barely read, why not move your receipt collection to the cloud? To do that, here...

    After a recent report from an analyst said that at least one iPhone 6 version will launch in the third quarter of the year, more evidence seems to suggests Apple’s 2014 iPhones couldbe released earlier than expected. Reports from The China Post and Taipei Times have revealed that Taiwan’s Catcher Technology will be supplying metal casings for the iPhone 6. Morgan Stanley analyst Grace Chen wrote in a research note that Catcher will ship 10.5 million iPhone 6 casings this year, or 15% of the overall iPhone 6 orders. That number may indicatethat Apple plans to sell as many as 70 million...

    Answer: Rabbit It’s easy to assume that the way your culture sees something is the way every other culture sees it too. If you’ve grown up in the United States or Western Europe, for example, it would be easy to assume that everyone on Earth sees a man in the patterns on the surface of the moon just like you do. Interpretations of the crater patterns on the lunar surface are highly regionalized, however, and while nearly everyone in the U.S. refers to the face of the moon as “the man in the moon”, take a long hop across the ocean to Japan (or other countries in the region like China or...

After Mayor Jim Ardis filed a criminal complaint over the matter, police raided a home last week, seizing computers and hauling residents in for questioning.
