Your smartphone battery may be spying and tracking your digital footprint across Internet Technology is never short of surprises. Your online activity can now be tracked with your smartphone’s battery life. According to a paper by security researchers, phone batteries are transmitting information that could be used to find their owners and track them around the internet, in spite of taking proper privacy measures. The security researchers have found out that a feature of the HTML5 specification tells websites how much battery is left in a users’ phone and and is intended to allow websites to help preserve battery if phones are running [...]

New Samsung patent suggests a smartphone that can fold into half like a wallet Are you frustrated with the stubborn rigidity of your smartphone? Want a smartphone that can bend and fold in half without disturbing the clarity of the touchscreen? Well, you may just be lucky. Samsung has designed a smartphone that can completely bend into half. The South Korean smartphone maker has filed patent for technology that could just do the above. The patent portfolio registered with the United States Patents And Trademarks Office (USPTO) and approved in July 2015 hints that Samsung could be working on a smartphone that folds [...]

Thunderstrike 2 : The first firmware attack that can spread from MacBook to MacBook A very common notion among PC users is the assumption that “Apple computers” and basically the Mac firmware are much secured. However, how far is this true? For the first time two researchers have designed a Proof-of-concept worm which allows a firmware attack that can spread automatically from MacBook to MacBook even in case they are not networked. It was towards the end of last year that Trammell Hudson, an US-based security researcher and an employee of the New York City-based hedge fund, Two Sigma Investments, had designed a Thunderstrike exploit on Apple [...]

Internet Protocol Cybernetic Organism

Cyborg

A cyborg, short for “cybernetic organism“, is a being with both organic and artificial parts. See for example biomaterials and bioelectronics. The term was coined in 1960 when Manfred Clynes and Nathan S. Kline used it in an article about the advantages of self-regulating human-machine systems in outer space.[1] D. S. Halacy’s Cyborg: Evolution of the Superman in 1965 featured an introduction which spoke of a “new frontier” that was “not merely space, but more profoundly the relationship between ‘inner space’ to ‘outer space’ – a bridge…between mind and matter.”

The beginning of Cyborg creation began when HCI (human-computer interaction) began. There is a clear distinction between the human and computerized technology in HCI, which differs from cyborgs in that cyborgs act out human functions.

The term cyborg is often applied to an organism that has enhanced abilities due to technology,[3] though this perhaps oversimplifies the necessity of feedback for regulating the subsystem. The more strict definition of Cyborg is almost always considered as increasing or enhancing normal capabilities. While cyborgs are commonly thought of as mammals, they might also conceivably be any kind of organism and the term “Cybernetic organism” has been applied to networks, such as road systems, corporations and governments, which have been classed as such. The term can also apply to micro-organisms which are modified to perform at higher levels than their unmodified counterparts. It is hypothesized that cyborg technology will form a part of the future human evolution.

Fictional cyborgs are portrayed as a synthesis of organic and synthetic parts, and frequently pose the question of difference between human and machine as one concerned with morality, free will, and empathy. Fictional cyborgs may be represented as visibly mechanical (e.g. the Cybermen in the Doctor Who franchise or The Borg from Star Trek); or as almost indistinguishable from humans (e.g. the Terminators from the Terminator films, the “Human” Cylons from the re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica etc.) The 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man featured one of the most famous fictional cyborgs, referred to as a bionic man; the series was based upon a novel by Martin Caidin entitled Cyborg. Cyborgs in fiction often play up a human contempt for over-dependence on technology, particularly when used for war, and when used in ways that seem to threaten free will. Cyborgs are also often portrayed with physical or mental abilities far exceeding a human counterpart (military forms may have inbuilt weapons, among other things).
