The CIA built a fake software update system to spy on intel partners
Anyone relying on the CIA for tech support got a nasty surprise this morning, as documents published by Wikileaks revealed a secret project to siphon out data through its technical liaison service, dating back to 2009. The program, called ExpressLane, is designed to be deployed alongside a biometric collection system that the CIA provides to partner agencies. In theory, those partners are agreeing to provide the CIA with access to specific biometric data — but on the off-chance those partners…

Is that an iPhone 8 in Tim Cook's pocket?

Is that an iPhone 8 in Tim Cook
People on the internet seem to think Apple CEO Tim Cook is carrying around the next iPhone, as evidenced by a photo he tweeted today of a visit to a manufacturer. Could that bulge in his right-hand pocket be the next iPhone? Is this how low we're going to go for iPhone rumors? (Yes.) Here's what this photo tells me, if that even is the next iPhone in his pocket: the upcoming iPhone will be rectangular in shape; it will look quite large in the pocket of a six-foot-something man; and it might d…

Twitter for Xbox One now lets you watch your timeline alongside videos
Twitter is updating its Xbox One app today to make it a lot more functional. The updated app will now let you actually log into Twitter to see your own timeline alongside videos, or relevant tweets / commentary.

Earlier this week, HTC lowered the price of its Vive headset by $200 in an attempt to make the immersive VR device accessible to more consumers. Another option for HTC, which Bloomberg reports to be significantly less likely, is a sale of the entire company. But finding a single buyer fo…

Razer's $159 Xbox One controller has swappable thumbsticks

Razer
Razer's new Wolverine Ultimate controller has a lot going on. It’s sort of a whole situation. Let's break it down with bullet points: It's a wired controller that works with PC or Xbox One. It has a 10 foot braided USB cable, which can be unplugged, but that just makes it a controller that's not connected to anything, not a wireless game controller. Oh man, it's $159.99. How much do you love video games? It has Razer Chroma RGB lighting so you can look down at your controller and remind yours…

Amazon will cut prices on avocados at Whole Foods when it completes acquisition on Monday
Amazon today announced that it expects to close the deal on acquiring Whole Foods on Monday after the FTC and shareholders approved the sale this week. Amazon says shoppers can expect lower prices at Whole Foods stores starting that same day on “best-selling grocery staples” such as organic eggs, bananas, butter, salmon, ground beef, and — our Vlad Savov’s favorite — avocados. Later down the line, Amazon Prime will replace Whole Foods’ current customer rewards program and offer Prime members …

Xperia XZ1 leak shows Sony sticking with the same, tired phone design

Xperia XZ1 leak shows Sony sticking with the same, tired phone design
Images of Sony's rumored Xperia XZ1 smartphone leaked today, and we're underwhelmed, to say the least. The device, which we're expecting to be announced on August 31st at IFA in Berlin, features two massive bezels. Generally, it looks like the same design we've seen with Xperia devices for years, which maybe wouldn't have mattered as much if nearly every major phone maker wasn't minimizing their bezels. LG, Samsung, and Essential all introduced phones this year with smaller bezels while Apple…
