Guago Estate, Muchatha, Kiambu that was cordoned off as a crime scene where one of the terrorists was residing. [Jenipher Wachie/Standard] The terrorist who participated in the killing of at least 14 people at DusitD2 complex in Riverside Drive, Nairobi, lived an ordinary life in Kiambu and loved listening to blaring Kenyan urban pop music from his Toyota Ractis which had a muffled exhaust system that gave its engine a loud roar. Ali Salim Gichunge alias Idris or Farouk did not cut the image of a militant. He was homegrown, ordinary and loved a fine life. His neighbours at Guango, a gated estate in Mucatha, Ruaka, described him as a regular guy who had no definite routine but his presence was easily recognisable due to the loud music from his car. Guango is a middle income estate...

While generational labels are nothing new, the term “snowflake millennial” is one of the most acidic. It might roll off the tongue, but it is anything but informed.     From the baby boomers of the mid-1940s to the early ’60s, to Generation X yuppies who came of age in the 1980s, labelling generations is nothing new for as early as 1839, French Philosopher Auguste Comte wrote about the gradual and continuous influence generations have upon each other and how generational stereotypes hold firm. For today’s millennials, who came of age around the early 2000s, the charge of “snowflake” has been attached to criticise their perceived sensitivity. The British Army even used the name recently to address young people in a recruitment campaign. One of the soldiers featured in the cam

It's hard to search the web these days and not find Google Maps data. But privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo did something relatively unusual on Tuesday — it brought in Apple Maps as its default mapping partner. Using Apple's MapKit JS framework that was announced at WWDC last year, mobile and desktop searches through DuckDuckGo for maps and addresses will pull Apple Maps data, satellite imagery, and visuals such as storefronts. The maps are interactive, so on mobile you can zoom in with your fingers, and on all platforms the maps include clickable listings with addresses and hours. The separate "Maps" tab on DuckDuckGo will only bring up Apple Maps. All the information, but with Apple Maps.DuckDuckGo's big thing is its strict privacy policy: searches are private, anonymous,

Residents of a north community have hit out after a major internet company used a picture of a crime scene to illustrate life in part of Inverness. Search engine Google provides “knowledge panels” for all areas of the Highland capital, with most represented by a flattering picture of a local landmark, public building, or scenic view. People in Dalneigh were dismayed to discover that Google represents them with a photograph of a police van at the scene of reports of a 2015 assault near the area’s primary school. >> Keep up to date with the latest news with The P&J newsletter Councillor for Inverness Central, Richard Laird, has lived in Dalneigh his whole life. He said: “For a lot of people Google is their portal to the rest of the world. If people search for Dalneigh and the

Google has gone from a plucky search engine startup to a sprawling international corporation with its tendrils reaching into many aspects of our lives. Sometimes, that provides unique advantages. However, it can also be immensely frustrating when you run into Google's famously lacking customer support. As travel blog One Mile at a Time points out, that's a particularly big problem when it comes to Google Pay and Fi. This tale starts as many Google horror stories on the web do: with a fraud alert. The author's spouse purchased a Pixel 3 with a credit card that had an unrelated fraudulent charge that same day. This threw up a flag on Google's end, and that results in an immediate lock on the Google Pay profile. Many Google users have encountered this same situation over the years, a

I have written about it before but it is a concept some people struggle with. Photos from the internet are not necessarily "free." They are free in the sense that you can copy and paste them into whatever you want and go about your day. This is just like any product in the store is free because you can pick it up, put it in your pocket and walk out of the store. Photos have the same copyright protections that written words do. If someone snaps a photo, they automatically have the exclusive rights to that photo. It doesn’t matter if they file for a copyright. They own that photo. Taking images off the web to reuse is often a violation of the original creator’s rights and may land you in trouble. I say "often" because there are exceptions. And these exceptions can help you res

A malicious Windows shortcut file posing as a movie via The Pirate Bay torrent tracker can trigger a chain of mischievous activities on your computer, like injecting content from the attacker into high-profile web sites such as Wikipedia, Google and Yandex Search or by stealing cryptocurrency. Malware on TPB is not a new thing, but the method used to infect a victim's computer and the large amount of varied malicious activities discovered by BleepingComputer are quite interesting. Not the kind of entertainment for a movie fan It started when security researcher 0xffff0800 found a nasty surprise in the files for the movie The Girl in the Spider's Web (official trailer - it's a hacker movie) downloaded from TPB. At that time, the movie had 2,375 seeders. Instead of a video file, he foun

Inside 12 Via Gesù, the ornate Renaissance palazzo that houses the operations of the Versace fashion dynasty, preparations are under way for the label’s Autumn/Winter 2019 men’s show. Clothes are being edited into “looks” of acidic colours and rich patterns.Rich is a word often associated with Versace: prints, comprised of photographs of Versace shoes and jewellery, laid over the house’s signature baroque prints, are hysterical in their decorative excess. Donatella Versace, the label’s creative director, family matriarch, major-domo and — apparently, today — dominatrix, strides between the rails of clothing in high heels. The dominatrix thing is fitting: another print in the collection cross-hatches the body with illustrated gold-buckled harnesses, a callback to her brother Gianni
