First Quantum-Secured Blockchain Technology Tested in Moscow
Old news but interesting
@galaxis No, it's absolutely the same thing.
Facebook introduced 2FA a long time ago (here's an article last updated in 2010: https://zeltser.com/why-facebook-one-time-passwords/) and us early adopters of it experienced this all the way back then.
I don't like Facebook as much as the next person, but the news surrounding it are getting absurd.
Now Facebook is allowing anyone to look you up using your security phone number https://www.fastcompany.com/90314763/now-facebook-is-allowing-anyone-to-look-you-up-using-your-security-phone-number
NOW?? That has been the case for at least a decade.
While I was still in high school somebody tried to prank me by sending me SMS from an unknown number, and I found out who it was with one Facebook search. What changed NOW? Back then Facebook was a "cool thing" and nobody dared criticizing it.
Today's Dilbert strip is just brilliant 😂

@gamehawk @Gargron I definitely dislike the cross posting of Twitter content to Mastodon with no actual engagement. It reminds me of when everyone just used FriendFeed (or was it Wave or Buzz?) as a dumping ground for Tweets. It was a pretty good platform but got the reputation of being inhabited only by ghosts of people engaged elsewhere, which was part of its downfall.
@superruserr Countdown to Zero Day by Kim Zetter is my favorite thriller. Too bad she didn't publish more thrillers, I'd buy every single one of them.

HOW THE FUCK IS IT POSSIBLE THAT A FRESH YOUTUBE ACCOUNT CAN END UP WATCHING PAEDOPHILE CONTENT IN LESS THAN TEN "RECOMMENDATIONS" FOR SEEMINGLY BENIGN VIDEO SEARCHES???
The video below is *incredibly disturbing* to watch, but holy fuck do we need to be aware of it. The recommendation algorithm is serving minors in sexual poses all over paedophile's homepage. All it takes is a seemingly benign search (like "yoga") and a few clicks.
I've visited 10 local tech shops this morning and failed to find a single cable with USB Type-C connectors on both sides. Each one of those shops had a cable with Type-A on one side and Type-C on the other.
For a connector that's supposed to replace USB Type-A, it sure is difficult to connect my phone with my laptop using it.
