At this point, if you've visited our website at all in the last few months, we shouldn't have to convince you to download the latest updates for all of your apps and devices when they drop. Zero-day vulnerabilities are discovered nearly on a daily basis, and one of the best ways to ensure that your private data stays private is to get the updates right away. To that point, we hope that every Chrome user has already updated their browser to version 90, but if you're holding out for some reason (or just forgot), Google shared yet another reason to update this week. Alex Gough, an engineer on the Chrome platform security team, revealed in a blog post on Tuesday that Chrome 90 for Windows devices adopts Hardware-enforced Stack Protection, which Microsoft announced back in March. This mitigation technology makes it more difficult for hackers to exploit security bugs, and is supported by any computers with the Windows 20H1 December update or later installed, running on processors with Control-flow Enforcement Technology (CET), which includes Intel Core 11th Gen and AMD Zen 3 CPUs. "With this mitigation, the processor maintains a new, protected, stack of valid return addresses (a shadow stack)," Gough explains. "This improves security by making exploits more difficult to write. However, it may affect stability if software that loads itself into Chrome is not compatible with the mitigation." If you want to know all the nitty-gritty details about this new technology, be sure to read the full blog post, but in effect, Hardware- enforced Stack Protection is a response to a new attack method called Return Oriented Programming (ROP), which attackers invented after Microsoft introduced Data Execution Prevention. Here's how stack protection combats ROP, according to Gough: Along with the existing stack, the cpu maintains a shadow stack. This stack cannot be directly manipulated by normal program code and only stores return addresses. The CALL instruction is modified to push a return address (the instruction after the CALL) to both the normal stack, and the shadow stack. The RET (return) instruction still takes its return address from the normal stack, but now verifies that it is the same as the one stored in the shadow stack region. If it is, then the program is left alone and it continues to work as it always did. If the addresses do not match then an exception is raised which is intercepted by the operating system (not by Chrome). The operating system has an opportunity to modify the shadow region and allow the program to continue, but in most cases an address mismatch is the result of a program error so the program is immediately terminated. There are limitations to this technology, but all you need to know is that it will keep you safer from malicious attacks. If you aren't sure whether or not you've updated to the latest version of Chrome on your Windows 10 computer, you can find out by going to Settings > About Chrome and checking if you're up to date.
Microsoft reportedly won’t ship Windows 10X this year. In fact, it “likely never” will.
Apple streamed its first big virtual event of 2021 on April 20th to unveil a host of new products, including a redesigned iMac, an M1-powered iPad Pro, an upgraded Apple TV, the purple iPhone 12, and the long-awaited AirTag. All things considered, it was an incredibly busy event for the company, so it's no surprise that some highly-anticipated devices didn't make the cut. One such rumored announcement was that of the next AirPods model, and while there wasn't any news on that front at the Spring Loaded event, the leaks have continued to spring online. In a new video published on his YouTube channel this week, EverythingApplePro unboxed and showed off a pair of AirPods clones that look exactly like what we expect the third-generation AirPods to look like when they launch later this year. They're called Air60 TWS and only cost $45, but they might be our best look yet at the AirPods 3 design. For months, we've been hearing that Apple's next AirPods would feature a design similar to that of the AirPods Pro. Subsequent leaks suggested that the AirPods 3 would have a shorter stem like the Pro model, but would forgo the replaceable ear tips as well as premium features such as Transparency and Active Noise Cancelling. As the YouTuber notes in the video, the knockoff headphones are 1:1 with the CAD renders that have leaked online, so if those leaks are accurate, the Air60 TWS should be virtually identical to the AirPods 3. As expected, the charging case is something of a mashup of the cases for the AirPods 2 and the AirPods Pro. With the shorter stem, Apple can make the case more stout, while the lack of ear tips means the case can be less wide as well. Stacked up next to each, the AirPods Pro and the cloned AirPods 3 look incredibly similar, save for the ear tips and the larger sensor on the clones. The stem is slightly thicker on the clones as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0v9tKvQSmM Throughout the video, EverythingApplePro cites an extensive leak from Chinese site 52audio that revealed many of the specs and features of the AirPods 3 earlier this year. That leak did claim that the AirPods 3 would feature optional ear tips, but that isn't the case with these knockoffs, at least. As for the price, 52audio believes that the AirPods 3 will sell for $150, while other sources think Apple will stay in the $200 price range, which is how much second-generation AirPods with a wireless charging case currently retail for in Apple's online store. It has now been more than two years since the second-generation AirPods made their debut, and about a year and a half since the AirPods Pro launched, so it's only a matter of time before Apple is ready to refresh both product lines. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, we're probably going to be waiting until at least Q3 2021, though.

The Nest Learning Thermostat was a total game-changer when it first debuted. The Nest packed a range of brilliant convenience and energy-saving features into a design that was sleek and stylish. Long story short, the Nest Learning Thermostat had it all. Many people believe that Nest's flagship thermostat is still the best smart thermostat on the planet, and you won't hear any arguments from us. In fact, we use the latest model in our own home and we love it. The problem is that the Nest Learning Thermostat is quite pricey compared to some of the newer options out there. Even while it's on sale at a discount on Amazon, it's still over $220. The good news is that you can get all the smart features that make Nest's Learning Thermostat so great in the newer, less expensive model called simply the Nest Thermostat. It retails for $130 and that's already a bargain, but head over to Amazon and you'll see that the Nest Thermostat just got its first big discount! The new Nest Thermostat does not have the same sleek stainless steel design as the flagship model. But if you ask us, it features a different design that's just as stylish. The face has a unique mirror finish with a digital display underneath it, and it comes in four different colors to match any home decor. Most importantly, of course, the Nest Thermostat includes all of the important smart features from the flagship model. You'll be able to control your thermostat from anywhere using the Nest app or your voice thanks to Google Assistant and Alexa support, and you'll save plenty of money on your energy bill thanks to Nest's intelligent features that tune your settings constantly and learn from your behavior. At $130, Google's newest Nest Thermostat is a terrific value. All things considered, it may very well be the best value out there. But if you head over to Amazon right now and pick one up, you'll pay just $99.99! It's the first big discount we've ever seen on Amazon for this model, and we doubt it'll last very long. So what are you waiting for?! Here are some of the important details: The Nest Thermostat is an ENERGY STAR-certified smart thermostat that combines efficiency with convenience Works with or without a C wire in most homes Certain setups require a C wire or a power accessory, including heating only, cooling only, zone controlled, and heat pump systems Nest's learning features let the thermostat automatically turn your AC or heat off when you leave, and back on when you arrive home Controllable using the Nest app on iOS and Android devices, or with voice commands thanks to support for Alexa and Google Assistant The special "Savings Finder" feature suggests tweaks to your schedule to help you save even more money while still remaining comfortable Monitors your HVAC system and sends you an alert if something isn't working properly
