Hisense announces new Google TV-powered ULED lineup at CES 2022

Hisense joins TCL and Sony with its own Google TV-powered TV sets.

What you need to know

  • Hisense launches a new lineup of ULED TVs featuring Google TV.
  • The new TVs feature Mini LED and Dolby Vision technologies for impressive picture quality, with refresh rates ranging from 60Hz to a variable 120Hz.
  • The lineup starts at just $580 and will be available in the summer.

Last year, TCL and Sony announced the first TV sets to feature Google TV built-in. At this year's CES 2022, Hisense joins in the fun with its own lineup of Google TV sets, ranging from affordable to premium.

The high-end U9H series comes with an impressive set of features. This 75-inch TV is equipped with a Mini LED display and more than 1280 local dimming zones, providing black levels and contract nearly as good as an OLED. Picture quality is further enhanced with Quantum Dot technology and Dolby Vision HDR, and the TV reaches up to 2000 nits of brightness. This is thanks to a new processor that enables a native 120Hz refresh rate for a smooth viewing experience.

The U8H series is a step down, offering many of the same premium features although with a lower peak brightness of 1500 nits. Hisense highlights features like IMAX enhanced and Filmmaker Mode for improved picture quality. This series is available in 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch models.

The U7H series is more gaming-focused with variable 120Hz refresh rate, auto low-latency, and Game Mode for quicker response times when gaming. Along with FreeSync support, this series is ideal for anyone looking to upgrade their PS5 setup, particularly with the large 85-inch model.

The lineup rounds out with the U6H series, which is the more affordable of the bunch. For a much lower price, you'll get only a 60Hz display. However, you still get HDR support, eARC, Dolby Atmos audio, and a variable refresh rate. This model starts at just 50-inches and goes up to 75-inches.

With Google TV running the show, you'll get access to many features found on some of the best Android TVs, such as custom recommendations, thousands of apps, and support for virtual assistants for hands-free Google Assistant via the built-in microphones.

The new Hisense TVs will arrive on the market this summer. Prices range from $580 for the U6H series and $3200 for the U9H.

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website, portodelisboa.pt, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc
