  7. In 2015, a British jury found the former glam rock star Gary Glitter guilty of having sex with a girl under the age of 13, attempted rape, and four counts of indecent assault. Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, committed those crimes between 1975 and 1980, but he’d also been prosecuted for many sex crimes against minors in the years since then, and he’s served two and a half years in a Vietnamese jail. A British judge sentenced Gadd to 16 years in prison. He has now been released after serving half of that time. View the full article

  13. It’s a big week for GloRilla. The rising Memphis rapper had a cover story in The Cut and was just announced as one of many performers at the 2023 Grammys’ 50th anniversary of hip-hop segment.

  16. Matty Healy has one message for the former members of Oasis — specifically the always-feuding Liam and Noel Gallagher: “Stop marding.” In an interview with CBC’s Q With Tom Power, the 1975 frontman unleashed a no-lies rant about how the Gallagher brothers owe it to the fans and each other to just get back together. “What are Oasis doing?” he said. “Can you imagine being in potentially, right now, still the coolest band in the world and not doing it because you’re in a mard with your brother?” (Stereogum is still researching the definition of ‘marding,’ but we get the gist.)

  17. Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are reuniting with director David Fincher for a new film called The Killer, which is based on the French comic book series by Alexis Nolent and stars Michael Fassbender, Charles Parnell, Tilda Swinton, Arliss Howard, and Sophie Charlotte. It’ll be the fifth collaboration with Fincher; Reznor and Ross first scored the director’s The Social Network in 2010 and followed up with the super-underrated The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011), Gone Girl (2014), and Mank (2020).

  19. Enlarge (credit: Google) Grandfathered-in "Legacy G Suite" users got a scare recently when another new "transition" message started popping up in the Google Admin console. "The transition to Google Workspace has started," said the new message that suddenly appeared in people's accounts. This was after Legacy G Suite users went through a contentious transition last year, where Google's opening position involved shutting down their accounts if people didn't start paying, but eventually, it was talked into not doing that. A Google spokesperson tells us the Workspace transition message was "a bug that surfaced an old banner from earlier in the process last year, and our team is working on removing it. More changes are not happening at this time, and those who previously opted-in for personal use are not expected to take any further action." We've received a few questions about this message, and this Reddit post has people wondering what the deal is, but it's just a bug. That's great because Legacy G Suite users have gone through enough already. To recap, Google currently offers businesses the option to pay a monthly fee for a Google/Gmail account that ends in a custom domain name instead of @gmail.com. Today this is called "Google Workspace," but due to Google's constant rebrands, it was first called "Google Apps for your Domain," then "Google Apps," and then "G Suite." Google's custom domain service was not always paywalled and not always exclusively aimed at businesses—it was free from 2006 to 2012. Google even pitched these accounts to families as a way to let everyone have similar email addresses. Some people did so, which means today they are getting a paid service for free. Don't believe a word of this message. (credit: nativecode_) Last year, the Google accounting department turned its Eye of Sauron on these long-term users and threatened to take away their nearly 16-year-old accounts if they didn't start paying a business rate for these formerly free and not necessarily business accounts. After a public outcry, Google eventually left these "Legacy G Suite accounts" alone after making users confirm that they were using their accounts for "non-business" purposes. After that, everything was settled. Read 2 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article
  20. Enlarge / Apple CEO Tim Cook. (credit: Drew Angerer/Getty Images) Apple reported its earnings for Q1 2023 today, and it was one of the company's poorest-performing quarters in recent years. It was the company's biggest decline since 2016 and the first since 2019. Overall revenue was down more than 5 percent year-over-year as the company failed to match sales from the same quarter last year across most of its hardware categories. iPhone revenue was $65.78 billion for the quarter, down 8.17 percent year over year. Similarly, "Other Products"—which includes the Watch, AirPods, and some other outliers—was down 8.3 percent year over year at $13.48 billion. The real underperformer was the Mac, which was down almost 30 percent at $7.74 billion. The two parts of the business that did grow were services— which include things like Apple Music and TV+, iCloud, and AppleCare—and the iPad. Services were up 6.4 percent at $20.77 billion, while the iPad grew 29.66 percent to $9.4 billion. Read 3 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article

  22. Touring in a foreign country ain’t cheap, and it might soon become even more expensive for artists to bring their music to the United States. The Department of Homeland Security has proposed significant price increases for the O-type and P-type visas granted to performers. Under the proposed change, the cost of an O-type visa petition would increase from $460 to $1,655 — an increase of 260%. The fee for P-type petitions would rise from $460 to $1,615 — a 251% bump.

  23. Enlarge (credit: Razer) There are a lot of cookie-cutter mice that, though made by different manufacturers, have the same shapes and features but rely on mild changes in color or sensor specs to differentiate themselves. So when Razer announced the Viper Mini Signature Edition (SE) today, a wireless mouse that looks like it forgot to get dressed, we took notice. The Viper Mini SE uses a magnesium alloy chassis "exoskeleton," as Razer describes it. Lines of dark gray stretch across the mouse's palm area, creating a web-like design and bold, gaping holes. Razer's using an extreme take on the honeycomb design, which has holes drilled into a mouse's chassis to reduce weight. However, the typical honeycomb mouse, like the Glorious Model I, has many more holes that are smaller, while the Viper Mini SE has holes that are so big, it looks like you could poke your finger through them. It'll be easy for dust to fall into those openings. (credit: Razer) At first look, I was immediately concerned about the mouse's durability. Despite what Razer claims, I still think I'm more likely to break a mouse with 18 holes in it than one with none. Large openings can also attract dust and debris, but bigger holes should make the mouse easier to clean with an air blower than a honeycomb mouse topped with more, smaller openings.

  24. Enlarge / Anker's Eufy division has said its web portal was not designed for end-to-end encryption and could allow outside access with the right URL. (credit: Eufy) After two months of arguing back and forth with critics about how so many aspects of its "No clouds" security cameras could be accessed online by security researchers, Anker smart home division Eufy has provided a lengthy explanation and promises to do better. In multiple responses to The Verge, which has repeatedly called out Eufy for failing to address key aspects of its security model, Eufy has plainly stated that video streams produced by its cameras could be accessed, unencrypted, through the Eufy web portal, despite messaging and marketing that suggested otherwise. Eufy also stated it would bring in penetration testers, commission an independent security researcher's report, create a bug bounty program, and better detail its security protocols. Prior to late November 2022, Eufy had enjoyed a distinguished place among smart home security providers. For those willing to trust any company with video feeds and other home data, Eufy marketed itself as offering "No Clouds or Costs," with encrypted feeds streamed only to local storage.
