GoPro improves Fusion VR camera resolution via software update

The firmware also supports time lapses in this mode, and there's now RAW photo support for both time lapses and night modes when the intervals are set to 5 seconds or longer. Corresponding updates to the Fusion Studio software on your PC should also deliver improved image quality, easier importing and better hooks into Adobe's 2019 versions of Premiere and After Effects.

Besides serving as a treat for Fusion owners, the beta sends a message: GoPro is still committed to its VR video camera. That isn't completely surprising when company chief Nick Woodman casually confirmed a Fusion 2 camera during a press party at CES, but the firmware serves as tangible proof -- it's not just dabbling in 360-degree content.

Microsoft splits Cortana from search in Windows 10

The search box will be solely for text queries, while Cortana will of course handle voice queries. Microsoft has placed more focus on improving search lately. It merged the function across Windows 10, Bing, Office and Edge, and released a more powerful search tool in the Office app.

Elsewhere in the latest preview build, you'll be able to install font files simply by dragging them onto the fonts settings page, while Microsoft is changing how the Start menu works. It will run on its own process, so if it's affected by any problems, they should have a smaller impact on other parts of your system.

US bills would ban exports to Chinese telecoms that violate sanctions

The politicians aren't shy about the reasons behind the move. This is partly in response to the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada over US allegations she helped her company violate US trade sanctions against Iran. This would potentially force the President to ban Huawei's US-based equipment exports, limiting its ability to do business around the world. It wouldn't be as severe a blow as it was for ZTE, since Huawei designs its own mobile processors, but it could have a noticeable effect.

Huawei has repeatedly denied allegations of both violating sanctions and of spying on behalf of the Chinese government. There also hasn't been public evidence that Huawei equipment is spying on the US or other countries. However, those denials might not matter should the bills eventually become law -- if the US determined there was a violation, that could be all she wrote. There's no guarantee they will become law, mind you. The President was the main proponent of reversing the export ban on ZTE, and he might not sign bills that would force him to impose bans going forward.

MasterCard won’t let companies automatically bill you after free trials

Here's how MasterCard's new protections will work: Sign up for a free trial and provide your MasterCard card number for your payment information. When that free trial comes to an end, the merchant will be required to send you a text or email notifying you that you will have to pay to continue the subscription. That message has to include the subscription cost, payment date and merchant name presented clearly so you know exactly who you are dealing with. The message will also have to include instructions on how to cancel in case you decide you're better off without it.

Even if you opt to give the merchant permission to charge you so you can continue using its service, the company has to provide you with monthly receipts that show you the monthly cost. That should make it easier to track price changes in your subscription so you don't get hit by unexpected price jumps (looking at you, Netflix). Those monthly receipts will also have to include a guide on canceling the subscription.

SpaceX moves Starship development to southern Texas (update: no)

The company explained its move as a bid to "streamline operations," according to the Times although it didn't elaborate on what that meant.

SpaceX is no stranger to Texas. It set up a rocket test facility for the Falcon 9 in McGregor, and it's in the midst of constructing a southern Texas launch site in Brownsville that will be used for both Starship testing and commercial flights. It might just be a question of concentrating work in the area that Starship will effectively call home, at least for the foreseeable future.

Update 1/16 7:55PM ET: Elon Musk says the LA Times' "source info is incorrect." SpaceX is building Starship prototypes in Texas, but the development of both the spacecraft and its accompanying Raptor engines remains in Hawthorne, California. We've updated the article accordingly.

‘Westworld Mobile’ game pulled following Bethesda lawsuit

The two sides had previously claimed there was an "amicable" end to the lawsuit. On the surface, though, it appears that Bethesda ultimately held all the cards in this situation. Behaviour wasn't just another developer hopping on a popular trend, as you often see in the mobile gaming world -- it built Fallout Shelter, and Bethesda accused it of simply recycling material to develop Westworld. Whether or not the claims are true, Behaviour faced an uphill (and potentially costly) legal battle to defend its title.

Sprint lets you chat with customer service reps through iMessage

When you visit the Contact Us page on Sprint's website, or look up the company on Safari, Search, Apple Maps or Siri, you can connect with an agent by tapping on the Messages icon. If you have the My Sprint Mobile app installed, Business Chat can tap into it to help authenticate your account. One of the advantages of Business Chat, beyond having to keep a browser tab open for your conversation or stay on the phone, is that you can continue speaking to reps at a later time if it's more convenient for you.

Business Chat is still in beta, and you can use it on devices running iOS 11.3 or higher. Sprint joins a number of companies that support it, including T-Mobile, DirectTV Now, Dish, Vodafone, Wells Fargo, West Elm and Salesforce.

LG smartphone rumor suggests a ‘second screen’ add-on

Samsung has already teased its future of "Infinity Flex" foldable devices that blur the line between phone and tablet, and while we'd heard LG would show off something similar at CES last week, it didn't. Now CNET cites anonymous sources indicating that we'll see a new mobile device from LG at Mobile World Congress 2019 that supports an optional "second screen" attachment, described as a sort of case with a screen.

That could give it extra display area rivaling devices like Samsung and Royole, and as Google has already committed to supporting Android devices with changing screen sizes, we'd expect to see more companies give it a try. The odd configuration could also explain some of the recent trademarks that surfaced from LG including Foldi and Duplex.

CNET isn't clear on whether or not this adjustable device will be the mainstream G8 device, or perhaps a separate device like LG's previous G Flex series, but it will be something to keep an eye on as MWC's opening approaches on February 25th. We're expecting to hear more about Samsung's flexible plans and the Galaxy S10 on February 20th, and we wouldn't be surprised if LG also makes a pre-show splash with new mobile hardware.

Collection 1 data breach covers more than 772 million email addresses

That includes some where the password data may have been stored encrypted, so if someone has managed to crack open a site where you had an account registered, it's likely they have your info and know what password you were using. If you've logged into a customer support portal or some random forum with your email address and used the same password you use for your main email account, Netflix, Facebook or other accounts, then it could be trivially easy for someone to have that and use it to log in as you.

Unfortunately, for reasons Hunt explains in his blog post, it's impossible to see what account or password may have been included via his site, which is why you should probably be using a password manager (if you have a truly unique password, you can see if it's ever been exposed in one of the breaches on this page). That would make it easy to maintain unique passwords wherever you have accounts, and easily change them if there's a breach.

So to recap -- sign up for Have I Been Pwned, it's free and can alert you to breaches quickly. Use unique passwords, which could be easier to do if you use a password manager like 1Password or LastPass, or even if you just write them down and store them securely, in addition to multifactor authentication where available. You can't stop your information from popping up in breaches like this, but taking those steps can lower the risk of impact before your personal Facebook page starts offering deep discounts on Ray-Bans or someone in Latvia is adding to your Spotify playlists.

Android Q may include a dark theme and desktop mode

You'll also find a developer option that would "force experimental desktop mode on secondary displays," which might refer to a Samsung DeX-style view. Don't count on it reaching the finished version (it wouldn't even work when XDA enabled it), but Google appears to be considering the idea at a minimum.

Most other elements in this build are minor (such as wallpaper for all devices with always-on displays). There is an important change to privacy, though. Much as with iOS, you can limit permissions for location and other sensitive features so that it runs only while an app is in the foreground. You wouldn't have to worry about an app gathering data behind your back, or a GPS app chewing up your battery when you aren't using it. A revamp of the overall permissions section would give you a quick glimpse of the features your apps are using.

You'll probably have to be patient before you can try Android Q yourself, regardless of how many elements survive the development gauntlet. Google didn't release the Android P public preview until May of 2018, and the completed version waited until August. This is more of a tentative glance at the future than a definitive peek.
