Facebook says not to believe the rumors, wants you to trust its Messenger app

Youve probably read the rumors by now: Facebooks Messenger app records your movements! Spies on your conversations! Kills baby unicorns! Facebook wants you to know that its doing nothing of the sort.

In a statement fromPeter Martinazzi, a member of the Facebook Messenger development team, the social media company explains that Messenger doesnt actively listen in or watch you through your phones on-board camera and microphone. Instead, it asks to use your camera and microphone so you can make audio chats, or send photos and videos to your friends.

From the statement:

Like most other apps, we request permission to run certain features, such as making calls and sending photos, videos or voice messages. If you want to send a selfie to a friend, the app needs permission to turn on your phones camera and capture that photo. We dont turn on your camera or microphone when you arent using the app.

IBM Watson cooks up some new dishes

When not busy helping to find new treatments for cancer, IBM Watson is helping to cook up a few new dishes as well.

To show off Watsons powers, IBM is training its cognitive computing system to suggest new combinations of ingredients that could help cooks to create new, and sometimes quite delicious, recipes. It does so by analyzing the chemical compounds in each ingredient.

IBM joined Bon Apptit magazine to create a Web application called Chef Watson, now in beta, that offers lists of ingredients that can be used to create recipes. Bon Apptit is also working up a cookbook of the best Watson-based creations submitted by users.

Apple will keep pushing for a sales ban on Samsung products

Apple will appeal a judges order this week that denied its request for a sales ban on Samsung products that were found to infringe its patents.

A jury in California decided in May that Samsung infringed three of Apples patents and awarded the iPhone maker $119.6 million in damages.

Apple had been looking for $2 billion in damages, so the award was far smaller than it had hoped, but it also asked the court to prevent Samsung from selling the infringing products, including its Galaxy S III smartphone, in the U.S.

Having problems updating Windows 7? Try changing DNS settings

Microsoft may have republished its botched August update, but some Windows 7 users are reportedly still having problems with Windows Update. Fortunately, they've also found a simple solution.

On Wednesday, Microsoft reinstated its August update, which had caused font issues and system crashes on some machines. The problem, however, was that even though the new 2993651 update cleared up the issue, Microsoft still recommended that users manually purge security update2982791, through a process that involved wading through the registry. And that caused its own set of issues.

Lord of the Rings: Shadow of Mordor preview: Killer of orcs, controller of minds

"You can either kill him or mind-control him," says the handler watching over my shoulder as I play Lord of the Rings: Shadow of Mordor. I'm staring down at Kaka the Legend, an orc war chief, as he begs for his life.

This is the same Kaka the Legend who murdered fifteen of my best men. It's the same Kaka the Legend who taunted me on the battlefield, and then killed me with a blow from behind. It's the same Kaka the Legend who ran away from our next encounter like a coward.

I chased him, I knocked him down, and here we areme, a man of the resplendent White City of Gondor, towering over this bleeding uruk leader, his fellow orcs scattered about at odd angles where they fell to my sword.

Appeals court denies Oracle request to restore $1.3 billion judgment against SAP

Oracle has failed to persuade a federal appeals court to restore US$1.3 billion judgment in its copyright-infringement lawsuit against SAP, but will have the options of taking a lesser amount of money or pursuing a new trial.

The jury initially awarded the $1.3 billion to Oracle in 2010, but the judgment was subsequently vacated by U.S. District Court Judge Phyllis Hamilton, who had overseen the case. Hamilton found the jury overreached and said Oracle could accept a lower award of $272 million or seek a new trial.

Oracle at first opted for a new trial, but then reached a settlement wherein SAP would pay out $306 million, with Oracle reserving the right to appeal Hamiltons ruling overturning the $1.3 billion judgment.

How to clear absolutely everything off your desktop in Windows 8.1

I'd bet that if you polled 10 PC users on the best way to use the desktop on Windows you'd get 11 different answers. How to use the desktop is one of the most personal choices each PC user makes. We've already covered ways desktop hoarders can better manage filesthat cover up their wallpaper, for example.

Today, we're going to look at a method to keep your desktop as spartan as possible so that all you see when you boot up your PC is a pristine background image.

Here's how to do it in Windows 8.1.

Dump the files and shortcuts

The first thing you're going to want to do is get rid of any files sitting on your desktop. Sometimes this is harder said than done, because there are files that defy any logical categorization.

IDC: Tablets sales growth to slow this year

Tablet shipments worldwide will continue to grow this year, but not as quickly as previously expected, according to a forecast released Friday.

After four years of double- and triple-digit growth, worldwide tablet shipments this year will grow by just 6.5 percent over last year, according to IDC. The research firm had previously forecast 12.1 percent growth.

The tablet market is maturing and long-term trends are becoming clearer, said Jean Philippe Bouchard, research director for tablets.

More money is being spent on cheap laptops, smartphones or wearables, and people are keeping tablets longer than expected, Bouchard said.

We originally thought the [ownership cycle] was two years. We realized it was closer to three years, he said.

Intel turns its attention to desktop performance, unveils 8-core Haswell-E processor

Intel took the wraps off its most powerful consumer CPU at the PAX video-game conference in Seattle, WA, today. Intels Core i7 High-end Desktop Processor Family, code-named Haswell-E, consists of three unlocked processors that support hyperthreading, DDR4 memory, and Intels all-new X99 chipset.

The top-of-the-line Core i7-5960X boasts eight cores (16 processor threads), 20MB of cache, and 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes. This $999 processor runs at a base clock frequency of 3.0GHz and torques up to 3.5GHz in turbo mode.

Alienware's Area-51 gaming desktop reborn as a powerful Haswell-E-packing triangle

The first thing you notice about Alienware's new Area-51 refresh is that it's a freakin' triangle. Yeah, you heard me rightAlienware is bringing its Area-51 desktop line back from the dead, and the thing is shaped like a triangle. Pythagoras would be proud.

But let's talk the interior first. Underneath the hood, the 2014 incarnation of the Area-51 is a beastly machine. Alienware's announcement matches up with some other news you might've read this morningIntel's new high-performance Haswell-E Core processors. The Area-51 has them, with both six- and eight-core Intel Haswell-E processors available. While many games still use only one or two cores and Intel's four cores have been the standard for PCs in recent years, we can expect that to change now that both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are eight-core machines.

Pixlr's free photo editor goes native on Windows and OS X

Windows and Mac users in need of a free photo editor can now download a desktop version of Pixlr.

The popular web app is now available as standalone software, no longer requiring an Internet connection to use. But be aware that the free version isn't quite the same as as what you get online.

In many ways, the desktop software is similar to the web-based Pixlr Express. Users can crop, resize and rotate images, adjust color and contrast, apply red-eye reduction, or just use the auto-fix button. The app includes dozens of filters, overlays, borders, effects and stickers as well.

CryptoWall ransomware held over 600K computers hostage, encrypted 5 billion files

A file-encrypting ransomware program called CryptoWall infected over 600,000 computer systems in the past six months and held 5 billion files hostage, earning its creators more than $1 million, researchers found.

The Counter Threat Unit (CTU) at Dell SecureWorks performed an extensive analysis of CryptoWall that involved gathering data from its command-and-control (C&C) servers, tracking its variants and distribution methods and counting payments made by victims so far.

CryptoWall is the largest and most destructive ransomware threat on the Internet at the moment and will likely continue to grow, the CTU researchers said Wednesday in a blog post that details their findings.

Controversial ads slip into Firefox nightly test builds

Mozilla's advertising experiment for the new tab page in Firefox is popping up in the nightly test builds of the browser. Called Directory Tiles, the new program mixes website suggestions from sponsors and sites based on your browsing history in the new tab page for Firefox, and the mere hint of advertising in Firefox has created a fierce backlash from many of the browser's devotees.

Sponsored Tiles are only meant to appear if you don't have a browsing history, as typically the new tab page shows the sites you visit most often.

Nokia's navigation service Here comes to Samsung smartwatch and Galaxy

Samsung has partnered with Nokia to bring navigation service Here to its new smartwatch and Galaxy Android phones.

Here is a Nokia subsidiary that provides navigation, mapping and location services comparable with Google and Apple Maps.

Here will be available on Samsungs Tizen devices including the Gear S, a curved smartwatch that was announced this week, Nokia said.

On the Gear, Here will power an app called Navigator, offering turn-by-turn navigation as well as public transit routing. The app works stand-alone and map data can be stored on the device to use for offline navigation, Nokia said. However, Navigator can also pair with Heres Android app to let users calculate routes on their phones and send them to their smartwatch, it added.
