What you need to know

  • TCL unveiled a bunch of new Android tablets at CES 2022.
  • The new NXTPAPER 10s comes with a paper-like display featuring 10 layers of protection to retain natural colors.
  • The company's latest tablet lineup also includes the TAB 8 4G and three new TKEE series tablets designed for kids.

TCL announced a total of six new Android tablets at its CES 2022 press conference in Las Vegas today, including a 10.1-inch tablet with a NXTPAPER screen.

TCL's new NXTPAPER 10s is an affordable Android tablet with a paper-like display that is TÜV certified and claimed to reduce blue light by over 50%. Thanks to an anti-glare finish, TCL claims the screen can be viewed clearly from any angle. There's support for TCL's proprietary T Pen too, which means you can use the NXTPAPER 10s to write down notes. Keeping the lights on is a large 8000mAh battery. The tablet has been priced at $249 and is set to go on sale in Europe later this month.

The TCL TAB 8 4G is a lightweight budget tablet featuring a compact design, LTE connectivity, and a 4080mAh battery. The entry-level TCL TAB 10L, on the other hand, comes with a larger 10.1-inch HD display. Both tablets will be available in Europe from Q1 2022. While the TAB 8 4G is priced at $129, the TAB 10L will retail for $99.

TCL's new TKEE lineup for kids includes the TCL TKEE MINI, MID (with 4G connectivity), and MAX. All three tablets have been designed "especially with children in mind." Similar to Amazon's best tablets for kids, the new TKEE models are protected by a bumper case that can easily handle drops. They also feature TCL's eye-safe screen technology and come with the TKEE Pen.

The new series starts at $89 for the TKEE MINI, $119 for the TKEE MID, and $119 for the TKEE MAX. They will all be released in select markets later this quarter.

Along with the new tablets, TCL has also announced a new child-friendly service called TCL Kids. It will be available in Google Play for all new TCL tablets. TCL Kids offers a vast library of child-friendly educational and entertainment content, including over 20,000 videos, 400 storybooks, and 50 apps. TCL plans to launch the service globally in Q2 2022 for $3.99 a month.

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
