Founder and CEO of Roborock, Richard Chang, is seeking to create a cleaning experience that requires little to no interaction from customers.

"We are... giving our customers an even more hands-off solution, one that requires minimum interactions with the device. That means building a vacuum that can identify and adapt to items in its path, including carpets and obstacles, while also emptying and maintaining itself whenever necessary. With the S7 MaxV Ultra, customers are taking a step closer toward true autonomy in floor cleaning." - Richard Chang

Based on what the S7 MaxV Ultra can do, it looks like Robock is going to deliver on that hands-off cleaning solution with a truly convenient robot vacuum. Buyers won't have to worry about cleaning the mop, refilling the vacuum's water tank, or emptying the vacuum's dustbin. Instead, they will only need to check on the dock every few weeks to replace the dust bag and refill the water container so the vacuum can continue running smoothly on its own.

That's because the S7 MaxV Ultra not only has object detection but also comes with a dock that includes both an auto-emptying station for the dustbin as well as a mop-cleaning and water tank refilling station. That way, the vacuum can be washed, emptied, and refilled automatically during and after cleaning. Since the vacuum also includes the VibraRise system, it automatically lifts the mop when on carpet, so you don't have to remove or install the mop for separate mopping sessions.

Much like the Roborock S6 MaxV that came before it, the S7 MaxV Ultra features object detection, which is made possible through a set of cameras and ReactiveAI 2.0 technology. This allows the unit to identify objects on the ground like furniture, shoes, and toys - thus better avoiding them. It even marks these items on the in-app map with an icon so you can check on your cleaning and know what happened whether you're home or away.

As with any Roborock vacuum, the S7 MaxV Ultra always outlines a room and then cleans in orderly back and forth rows for perfect vacuum lines. It also creates a 3D map of your home and can be taught to clean or avoid specific areas. Adjust the suction to better clean everything from hard floors to mid-pile carpets and rugs.

The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra also sells separately if you simply want to get the vacuum without the smart dock. The bundle has an MSRP of $1399.99 while the vacuum alone has an MSRP of $859.99. This robot vacuum will be available to purchase in North America sometime in early Q2.

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
