Edward Snowden souhaite qu’Emmanuel Macron lui accorde l’asile en France

En 2013, Edward Snowden révélait au grand public un système obscur de surveillance de masse orchestré par les services secrets américains. Le lanceur d’alerte et ancien espion a par la suite dû aller se réfugier en Russie, seul pays à lui avoir accordé le droit d’asile il y a six …

Ring Video Doorbell 2 review: Better features, new frustrations

The Ring Video Doorbell 2 ($199 on Amazon) is a relatively modest, incremental update to the original Ring Video Doorbell. And, wow, some of its set-up procedure was seriously frustrating.

EZVIZ CTQ6C pan-and-tilt camera review: Smart motion tracking keeps intruders in sight

Fixed-view cameras have a common—and quite literal—blind spot: They can easily lose sight of an intruder if they step out of the field of view. That can leave you with incomplete video evidence, whether it fails to capture the actual crime or just doesn’t give you enough time to get …

Kazakhstan : Google et Firefox optent pour le blocage du certificat

Google et Firefox ne veulent pas marcher dans la combine du gouvernement kazakh. Les deux navigateurs ont en effet annoncé leur intention de ne plus faire confiance au certificat émis par l’autorité de certification nationale. Au mois de juillet, la presse locale avait expliqué que le gouvernement forçait les internautes …

Netvue Belle video doorbell review: Certainly not the belle of the doorbell ball

Netvue markets its Belle video doorbell as the first to be powered by an artificial intelligence that enables it to remember and associate names with faces (so it can learn to greet your guests by name) and instruct delivery people where they should leave packages. But in my experience, this …
