Cellphone and tech clues that your partner is cheating on you

FOX News

An easy way to keep two romantic lives separate is to buy two separate phones. That way, the cheater doesn't get confused and text the wrong person by mistake. A second phone is also a liability, even if expressed as a "work" or "emergency" phone. Another technique is to purchase a separate SIM card. Some phones allow you to have two SIM cards but that can be a hassle. A much easier way is to get a Google Voice number that rings on the current phone.

Mass surveillance fuels oppression of Uighurs and Palestinians

Al Jazeera

Tech-enabled control of a persecuted population. For many readers, the scenario brings to mind China's mass human rights violations against millions of Uighurs and other Turkic Muslim people. Yet this description would also apply to Israel's treatment of millions of Palestinians living under occupation. The Israeli military is reportedly using facial recognition to build a massive database of personal information on Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, which includes their photos, family histories and education, and assigns them a security rating. When soldiers, outfitted with an official smartphone Blue Wolf app, scan a Palestinian's face, the app shows yellow, red or green to indicate whether the person should be detained or allowed to pass.

The best Black Friday tech deals 2021


Early Black Friday deals are already rolling out, with more new sales showing up every day. For 2021, there's concern whether shipping issues will mean less stuff on the shelves for the holidays. As we've already been hearing for months, the global supply chain is seriously backed up with bottlenecks occurring at key points. Hoping to deal with an already difficult situation, retailers stretched out the shopping season as much as they dared, what with shipping timelines stretching to frustrating levels. These supply problems are supposed to be felt acutely in technology, or so the market watchers say.

McGill AI Podcast on Apple Podcasts


There are very few places in the world like Montreal and McGill which have such a concentration of talent in the field of AI/ML. MAIS primarily serves to build a community with a shared passion for the field, spreading knowledge and resources to help aid people trying to enter it. We are making a podcast to promote interest and reduce the barrier to entry which currently exists in the AI ecosystem. We hope to focus on promoting the achievements of underrepresented people within the field, promoting their research/work, give them a platform to share their experiences and allow others to use that information to break into the field while being more aware of the challenges and opportunities.
