It's getting harder and harder to think of opening sentences for all these iPhone 8 rumors, so I'll just get on with it: There's a new iPhone 8 video, crystal clear, showing the device from all sides.  There's one caveat: It's not really the iPhone 8. It's a device manufactured via CNC process, based on 3D CAD plans which allegedly come "directly from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone."

One of the reasons I hate it when people "call bullshit" on technology that still hasn't played itself out in the market yet (cough, VR, cough), is that it's just too easy.  Most new products fail.

Which brings us to the debut of the iPhone in 2007.  SEE ALSO: iOS 11 is about...

Is ransomware still ransomware if its goal is purely to destroy? This is less if-a-tree-falls hypothetical and more sobering reality for the untold number of people across the globe whose computer systems have been infected with the NotPetya ransomware. That's because the latest digital scourge to cripple computer networks in 65 countries (and counting) doesn't fit the typical ransomware mold. Instead of just encrypting users' files and holding those files ransom, NotPetya appears to do...

And after she graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University, she built a system to do just that.  SEE ALSO: Facial recognition technology is taking over airports: Your face is your new boarding...
