Exclusive: Clinton campaign also hacked in attacks on Democrats

By Mark Hosenball, Joseph Menn and John Walcott WASHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A computer network used by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton?s campaign was hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The latest attack, which was disclosed to Reuters on Friday, follows two other hacks on the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, and the party?s fundraising committee for candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives. A Clinton campaign spokesman said in a statement late on Friday that an analytics data program maintained by the DNC and used by the campaign and a number of other entities "was accessed as part of the DNC hack." "Our campaign computer system has been under review by outside cyber security experts.



Russia has motive, capability and form for U.S. email hack

By Andrew Osborn MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin says it had zero involvement in the hacking of Democratic Party emails while U.S. officials say the hack originated in Russia. Seen through Kremlin eyes, Moscow would only be doing what it feels the United States has been doing to it for years anyway - interfering in a geopolitical rival's domestic politics in an attempt to destabilize and shape events. President Vladimir Putin said in February he had seen specific intelligence suggesting Russia's foreign enemies - code for Washington - were preparing to meddle in Russian parliamentary elections later this year.

Tesla mulling two theories to explain 'Autopilot' crash: source

By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Tesla Motors Inc told U.S. Senate Commerce Committee staff it is considering two theories that may help explain what led to the May 7 fatal crash that killed a Florida man who was using the car's "Autopilot" system, a person familiar with the meeting told Reuters on Friday. Tesla staff members told congressional aides at an hour-long briefing on Thursday that they were still trying to understand the "system failure" that led to the crash, the source said. Tesla is considering whether the radar and camera input for the vehicle?s automatic emergency braking system failed to detect the truck trailer or the automatic braking system?s radar may have detected the trailer but discounted this input as part of a design to "tune out" structures such as bridges to avoid triggering false braking, the source said.



Trade groups, AT&T urge U.S. court to reverse 'net neutrality' rules
By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Trade associations representing wireless, cable and broadband operators on Friday urged the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to reverse a ruling upholding the Obama administration's landmark rules barring internet service providers from obstructing or slowing consumer access to web content. A three-judge panel in June, in a 2-1 decision, backed the Federal Communications Commission's so-called net neutrality rules put in place last year to make internet service providers treat all internet traffic equally. Wireless trade association CTIA said in a court filing on Friday seeking a rehearing that "few final rules of any federal administrative agency have ever had so much potential to affect the lives of so many Americans." AT&T also urged the court to reverse the ruling.
U.S. Judge denies Uber motion to compel arbitration in surge-pricing lawsuit

By Heather Somerville SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A federal judge on Friday denied a motion by Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] to compel arbitration in a passenger lawsuit over so-called surge pricing brought against the ride-hailing company's chief executive. Spencer Meyer, a Connecticut passenger and the lead plaintiff who filed the lawsuit, was subject to a user agreement requiring that disputes with San Francisco-based Uber be arbitrated. Although Meyer sued only CEO Travis Kalanick, the company requested arbitration after Uber was added as a defendant to the lawsuit last month.

This is the reason next year?s Galaxy S8 will be so powerful
It?s too early to talk about Samsung?s next-generation Galaxy S8 smartphone, especially now that the South Korean smartphone maker is getting ready to unveil the Galaxy Note 7. But a new report provides more details about what might be one of the processors that will power some of the best Android smartphones launching next year, including the Galaxy S8. DON?T MISS:  Crazy iPhone trick turns your wallpapers into optical illusions A message posted on Weibo picked up from GizmoChina says that Qualcomm?s CEO confirmed that the Snapdragon 830 processor will be made on a 10nm process, and should be released early next year. It?s likely that at least one version of the Galaxy S8 will have a Snapdragon 830 processor inside, and so will many other flagship devices from the competition. What?s exciting about this rumor is the 10nm process manufacturing detail. By moving to 10nm chip technology, Qualcomm will be able to make faster and more energy-efficient processors. Since Samsung is going to actually manufacture the new Qualcomm silicon, it?s likely that next year?s Exynos processors will also be 10nm chips. That?s because Samsung typically uses both Exynos and Snapdragon processors in its top mobile devices, but tries to offer the same overall smartphone performance. It?s not just Android that?s about to make the jump to 10nm silicon. Apple?s future iPhone is also expected to pack 10nm chips, which should be made by TSMC. MediaTek is also rumored to be working on its own 10nm chips for mobile devices. It?s unclear so far what a 10nm Snapdragon 830 processor will have to offer, but GizmoChina says that earlier rumors suggested the processor will use a 10nm FinFET process and Kyro 200 architecture, featuring an Adreno 540 GPU, X16 baseband that supports download speeds of up to 980Mbps, LPDDR4X RAM support, and 4K/2K video recording at 60fps, among other things.
