As some of you might know, Google’s Project Zero team is a group of security researchers who try to seek out vulnerabilities and exploits in apps and services in a bid to keep us safe. The team also regularly publishes their findings to make the public aware of what’s going on, and it seems that the team’s latest discovery comes in the form of an Android zero-day exploit.
You would assume that Project Zero would want to give its own colleagues a bit more leeway, but that would be a disservice to everyone, so kudos to them for being neutral. That being said, the exploit in question affects several popular Android handsets, like the Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, and S9, the Google Pixel 1 and Pixel 2, and the Huawei P20.
During the early days, this led to a lot of problems as it meant that malware could be easily hidden in these apps. Also, screening systems back then weren’t quite as sophisticated, thus allowing apps with malware to make it past Google’s checks. However, these days it’s starting to look very different where according to a report from WIRED, zero-day exploits for Android are being priced higher compared to iOS.
This is actually a good thing, at least for Android users, where it basically means that there are fewer zero-day exploits for Android, or at least Google has made it harder for hackers to find, thus increasing the price of those available. The same cannot be said for iOS, where it seems that there are more being sold in these underground markets, thus lowering its prices.
There’s no questioning Samsung’s dominance in the mobile OLED space. The sheer scale at which it produces and supplies OLED displays to its own smartphone subsidiary and other manufacturers is unmatched. However, Sharp is now entering the arena with the AQUOS Zero. The company’s latest device will come with its own OLED display and Sharp also has plans to supply panels to other OEMs.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds is an expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn that takes place in the Cut, a boreal wasteland to the north that separates the Banuk homelands from the rest of the world. It is a place where none but the most skilled hunters dare venture, and those that do must survive against dangerous new machines and freezing temperatures.
The latest trailer for Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds highlights some of the environments you will explore in this expansion to the world of Horizon Zero Dawn, including Banuk camps, frozen lakes, icy caves and more. Watch the trailer at the top of this post.
Nissan has updated its electric van with a bigger battery pack, giving it a 60 percent increase in driving range to an estimated total of 280km (174 miles).
The new battery pack has a 40kWh capacity but it retains the same dimensions with the previous battery so it doesn’t compromise the load space or payload of the new Nissan e-NV200.
Hi y’all!

Takenaka Corp announced May 17, 2017, that the energy balance of its Minami-Kanto branch office (Chuo-ku, Chiba Prefecture) has become "positive" throughout the year.
