Apple AirPods Max hit lowest ever price with this astonishing deal

If you've been looking to buy Apple AirPods Max, but have recoiled in horror at their extravagant pricing... good news! Apple's noise-cancelling over-ear headphones have dropped to their lowest-ever price thanks to a superb deal from Amazon.

The retailer has cut the price of Apple's top-tier headphones from £549 to just £368, saving you a gigantic £181. The only time we've seen them get any cheaper than that was with second hand or refurbished offers, and even then the additional saving was marginal. (Not in the UK?

Keep in mind though that this price cut only applies to the silver version of the AirPods Max. Other colours are discounted, too (the red AirPods Max are the next cheapest at £429), but it's the silver edition that's your best bet.

Though they are getting on a bit now, the Apple AirPods Max are still among the best noise-cancelling headphones you can buy. While their high price can be off putting, this new low price feels much more reasonable for a pair of premium over-ear headphones.

For your money, you get powerful high-quality audio and healthy battery life of up to 20 hours, as well as memory foam earcups and an unusual mesh headband that'll stay comfortable when worn for hours.

With their focus on sound quality, the AirPods Max are a great choice for anyone who wants to expand their sonic horizons beyond the in-ear AirPods and AirPods Pro. It's a shame that there's no 3.5mm for wired listening - or support for hi-res audio beyond Apple's own formats - but the audio performance of the AirPods Max is undeniably good.

Do remember though that the competition is even hotter than when the AirPods Max first launched – since the release of Apple's cans, we've recently awarded 5-stars to the excellent Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones, while Apple itself is said to be readying a second-generation AirPods Max model, too.

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

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,, 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. Fo

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
