New Zealand bourse says reviews into systems and cyber attack completed

Dec 4 (Reuters) – The operator of New Zealand’s stock exchange said on Friday that two independent reviews into system issues this year, including August’s cyber attack, have been completed and the undisclosed recommendations were being implemented.

It has been an unprecedented year for the bourse operator, NZX Ltd, whose systems were overwhelmed in March and April by trading volumes that were as high as six times their daily averages in 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and by a week of cyber attacks in August.

The separate reports confirmed that the two incidents were not connected.

InPhySec, an independent cybersecurity firm tasked with reviewing the cyber attacks, said “the volume, sophistication and persistence of the attacks were unprecedented in a New Zealand context, and are amongst the most severe we are aware of to have been experienced internationally.”

The InPhySec review recommended several technical and process steps to strengthen

The surprising way covid-19 may be affecting scented candle reviews

“There are angry ladies all over Yankee Candle’s site reporting that none of the candles they just got had any smell at all,” she wrote on Twitter last week. “I wonder if they’re feeling a little hot and nothing has much taste for the last couple days too,” she added, a nod to other common coronavirus symptoms.

Nelson’s observation, which generated thousands of retweets and likes on the social media site, read like the punchline of a late-night joke. But it caught the attention of Kate Petrova, a research assistant with the Harvard Study of Adult Development at Bryn Mawr College, who decided to test the hypothesis by scraping roughly 20,000 reviews of the most popular scented and unscented candles on Amazon.

“It is rare, at least in my line of work, to stumble upon an anecdotal observation that can be examined using such vast amounts of easily accessible

How to back up your smartphone photos, Reviews News & Top Stories

SINGAPORE – If there’s anything more precious than your smartphone, it must be the pictures in it.

You can buy a new phone but not the photos and the memories. So, it is imperative to perform regular backups. Here are some tips to help you do that.

Cloud storage

– Google Photos

Android phone users can try the Google Photos app, native to the Android platform, to automatically back up photos whenever you are connected to the Internet.

You just need to enable the back up and sync function in the app to enable this. Just click on the Google account icon on the top right corner of the app.

You have two options – original and high quality. The latter is currently free but Google will “optimise” or compress the uploaded photos.

‘Godfall’ PS5 Reviews Are Coming In, And They Are Not Amazing

The day before the launch of the PS5, one of its highest profile console exclusives has had its embargo lifted, and at least so far, reviews are not looking that great for Godfall.

Currently, Godfall is stuck at a 62 on Metacritic, with the caveat that is only based on six scored reviews, and other big outlets like Game Informer and IGN either have their reviews unscored or still “in progress.” Though the wording of many of those reviews is not the most positive.

Godfall’s current 61 is well below the 85 of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and has always been something of an unknown this launch window with a new IP and a “looter slasher” concept published by Borderlands’ Gearbox, but developed by Duelyst’s Counterplay Games.

The most common complaints are about repetitive missions and dungeon crawling, and an uninspired, flat story. Everyone was holding their breath to

Study examines if patient-generated online physician reviews reflect the quality of care

Online consumer reviews play an important role in almost every consumer industry — from dining and shopping to travel and technology. But what do online reviews of physicians tell consumers?

In a new study, researchers from The University of Texas at Dallas investigated whether patient-generated online reviews of physicians accurately reflect the quality of care.

Many patients use online reviews of physicians for deciding which physicians to see and which to avoid. At the same time, though, some physicians have become quite wary of these websites, and they have even filed defamation lawsuits over negative patient reviews. In short, while patients seem to trust the reviews, the physicians don’t.”

Photographer Austin Mann reviews the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera

Travel photographer Austin Mann has taken the iPhone 12 Pro Max to Utah’s Zion National Park, providing a look at what 2020’s highest-end iPhone camera is capable of.

In October, Austin Mann reviewed the iPhone 12 Pro at Glacier National Park in Montana, praising the improvement to the lineup over the iPhone 11 lineup. Now, he’s taken the iPhone 12 Pro Max to Utah to see how it stands up against its smaller counterpart.

Mann goes on record stating that he prefers the size of the iPhone 12 Pro to its larger, more expensive sibling. Yet, he was curious to see what sort of improvements the iPhone 12 Pro Max boasted over the rest of the lineup.

He points out that the most significant improvement was in wide and handheld shots in semi-low-light environments. He says that the iPhone 12 Pro Max needed less time in night mode, which enabled

The Reviews Are in: AMD Is the New Gaming CPU King

The big selling point for Advanced Micro Devices(NASDAQ:AMD) Ryzen line of PC CPUs, which the company launched in 2017, was many cores for not a lot of money. The chips excelled at tasks that could take full advantage of a lot of cores. The problem for AMD was that PC gaming is generally not one of those tasks.

AMD’s first three generations of Ryzen processors offered compelling value for certain types of users, but rival Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) remained in the lead in terms of single-threaded performance. Modern PC games can use multiple cores to varying degrees, but the performance of a single core is often more important than the number of cores for overall performance.

With the Ryzen 5000 series, AMD’s fourth generation of Ryzen desktop CPUs, the company has finally erased the one advantage that Intel has retained throughout the Ryzen era. Not only do the new
