Watch a violinist play her instrument while undergoing brain surgery

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 08:18

The brain is a complicated organ, and when surgeons are tasked with removing dangerous brain tumors they have to be incredibly careful not to cause unintended damage. For Dagmar Turner, a 53-year-old tumor patient at King's College Hospital in London, ensuring that she could continue to enjoy her passion for playing the violin, that meant demonstrating her musical talents for the surgical team as they were performing their operation.

In Turner's case, the tumor the doctors were targeting happened to be near her right frontal lobe. That's a tricky area to operate on, as removal or damage to certain brain structures could cause a loss of fine motor skills. That's where the violin came in.

Supreme hypebeasts love the company so much they’re paying big bucks for Supreme-branded Oreos

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 07:16

I remember the good old days, back when I was a kid and there was a grand total of one flavor of Oreo cookies to enjoy. The classic white icing was sandwiched between two chocolate cookies. It was a simple yet brilliant formula that turned Oreo into a snack food powerhouse -- and which seems downright quaint today, when you stroll down grocery store aisles and pass half a dozen or more different flavors of the beloved cookie brand depending on where you're shopping. You might see everything from birthday cake-flavored Oreos to Chocolate Oreo Thins; Peanut Butter Oreos; Red Velvet Oreos; Carrot Cake Oreos; and so many more different flavor, size, and filling variations.

Here's a new one I didn't see coming, though -- an Oreo that makes the ultimate fashion statement.

Hackers are taking advantage of coronavirus fears to spread malware

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 06:14

Whenever a tragedy strikes, it doesn't take long for scammers to come crawling out of the woodwork with some type of enterprising scheme designed to prey on the emotions of well-meaning individuals. Over the past few months alone, for example, we've seen scammers run fake fundraisers for the brush fires in Australia and sell counterfeit Kobe Bryant memorabilia.

In light of all that, it's perhaps not surprising at all that some scammers are now taking advantage of the persistent fear surrounding the coronavirus to spread malware to unsuspecting individuals.

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 05:12

With groups like NASA and the European Space Agency focusing largely on missions to explore Earth's moon and Mars, the Japanese space agency JAXA is taking a chance on a different kind of mission. According to reports out of Japan, JAXA is currently planning on a trip to two Martian moons, and they're evening planning on snatching a sample from the Martian moon Phobos and sending it back to Earth.

As Ars Technica reports, the mission will cost around $417 million and has a tentative launch window of 2024. If successful, it will be the very first time that humans have ever fetched a sample of a moon orbiting another planet.

Honda’s new Civic Type R is one heck of a gorgeous car

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 04:10

Honda's Civic Type R has consistently turned heads and, as Honda likes to tout, earned itself "near-universal" acclaim since its US launch in 2017 -- picking up awards like being named a 2018 AUTOMOBILE magazine All-Star and a 2018 Editor's Choice by Car and Driver. That's in addition to the stellar reputation the car has garnered from racing professionals who've taken the Civic Type R TCR to the Pirelli World Challenge series along with other major Touring Car series.

Next week, the Civic Type R's 2020 edition will start arriving at Honda dealerships in the US (on February 28, to be exact), and the new model will bring a slew of updates that include everything from tweaks to the car's ride and handling, braking performance, and engine cooling. The 2020 Type R also sports freshened-up exterior and interior stylings, standard Honda Sensing® safety and driver-assistive technology, as well as a gorgeous new Boost Blue exterior color. And in related news, Honda is also releasing its first-ever performance datalogging app this spring that will be available exclusively for use with the Type R.

Gmail is getting a brilliant new feature that will make it easier to find what you’re looking for

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 03:08

We've all been there -- looking for a critical piece of information that we know is buried in somewhere in our inbox. The email hasn't been deleted, but that doesn't mean we'll find it on the first try. Your inbox may be packed with emails that have some of the same search terms, complicating matters further. That's all the more surprising when it happens in Gmail, considering that Search is Google's most important product.

Google is apparently aware that Gmail needs better search functionality, and it has devised an update to make hunting for important data a lot faster than it was previously.

New study says poop may be responsible for rapid coronavirus spread

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 02:06

As the medical community continues to focus on the spread of the coronavirus and resulting disease Covid-19, researchers are hunting for clues to explain its rapid spread in China and isolated regions outside of the country. Now, a new report from the Chinese Center for Disease Control suggests that poop might be a piece of the puzzle.

The paper reveals that a stool sample from an infected individual was confirmed to contain coronavirus that would have been capable of further infections. This is an important development since it opens up the possibility that the disease is spreading in ways not previously realized.

Facebook will pay users for access to their audio recordings

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 01:35

A few months ago, Facebook and a number of other companies -- including Amazon and Apple -- found themselves embroiled in a bit of a controversy regarding the review of audio recordings. Specifically, Facebook employed human reviewers to transcribe audio recordings from users as a means to improve the overall quality of its software. While this is seemingly okay at first glance, many Facebook users were completely unaware that their audio recordings were being listened to in the first place.

Ultimately, Facebook pumped the brakes on its audio review process. Incidentally, Apple and other tech giants did the same.

Microsoft will bring its Defender antivirus software to iOS and Android

BGR - Fri, 02/21/2020 - 01:04

As often as we write about malware-ridden apps and exploitable vulnerabilities in iOS and Android, it's painfully clear that Apple and Google aren't perfect when it comes to protecting the users of their mobile platforms. Enter: Microsoft. On Thursday, the company announced it will bring its Defender antivirus software to iOS and Android, with plans to preview its mobile security solutions at the RSA Conference next week.

Microsoft abandoned its own attempts at capturing a segment of the smartphone market when it killed off Windows 10 Mobile in 2017, but as CNBC notes, it has still been a major player in the space, releasing its popular Office software on iOS and Android, as well as bringing Minecraft to mobile devices in 2014.
