Pixel demand is higher than expected, with some pre-orders being pushed back ...

Buying a Pixel isn?t for the faint of heart. Google says that preorders are higher than expected, making the Pixel XL, especially in a 128GB configuration, the most difficult model to come by.

A 9to5Google reportfound many who placed an order on the Google Store are missing their original delivery estimate. Some are going several weeks past the projected window and going deep into November.

A Google spokesperson told the site the company is working furiously to fill backorders:

We?re thrilled to see the excitement for our new Pixel phones, and frankly pre-order demand has exceeded our expectations. We?re working to restock our inventory as soon as possible.

The Surface Dial is a radical puck that controls Microsoft's new Surface Stud...

Sometimes versatile tools just aren?t enough. The keyboard and mouse?s flexibility have made them a PC mainstay for decades, but Microsoft?s introducing a focused, more artist-centric new input device dubbed the Surface Dial to accompany its new Surface Studio all-in-one PC.

The Surface Dial?s a hockey puck-like device designed to work in conjunction with Microsoft?s Surface Pen. The Dial doesn?t appear to have any buttons of its own; placing the device on the Surface Studio?s ultra-slim display brings up a contextual interface wheel with an array of options around the Dial, which you can cycle through by turning the device. In on-stage demonstrations, the Dial displayed brush tools and other related options when used with image-editing software, and an analog rewind tool to display and hide handwritten notes in Office.

Attackers are now abusing exposed LDAP servers to amplify DDoS attacks

Attackers are abusing yet another widely used protocol in order to amplify distributed denial-of-service attacks: the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), which is used for directory services on corporate networks.

DDoS mitigation provider Corero Network Security has recently observed an attack against its customers that was reflected and amplified through Connectionless LDAP (CLDAP), a variant of LDAP that uses the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) for transport.

DDoS reflection is the practice of sending requests using a spoofed source IP address to various servers on the Internet, which will then direct their responses to that address instead of the real sender. The spoofed IP address is that of the intended victim.

Meet the sleek Surface Studio all-in-one, Microsoft's first-ever desktop PC

The gorgeous, powerful Surface Studio all-in-one PC may be a new form factor for Microsoft?s hardware division, but in many ways it follows in the footsteps of its predecessors.

When Microsoft first launched its Surface tablets, the devices were more than just another laptop. The Surface series originated as aspirational devices, a no-guff imploration from Microsoft for PC makers like Dell and HP to embrace Windows 8?s newfound capabilities, to do more?or Microsoft would take the lead itself. PC makers were pissed, to put it mildly. But over time, Surface became a multi-billion dollar business for Microsoft. Laptops and 2-in-1s from other vendors slowly became more Surface-like, with some?such as Lenovo?s Yoga Book?pushing even further into radical designs that embrace Windows 10?s touch-friendly features.

Roost Smart Smoke Alarm RSA-400 review: It?s all about that battery

We gave the Roost Smart Battery high marks when it came to market late last year. Equipped with a removable Wi-Fi module and a tiny microphone, the battery will send an alert to you and as many ?watchers? as you care to designate the instant your smoke detector sounds off. Now Roost has teamed with Universal Security Instruments to manufacture a pair of its own smoke alarms. The company sent its most capable model?the RSA-400?for us to review.

The RSA-400 looks like your ordinary, everyday smoke detector. The included Roost Smart Battery enables it to connect to your Wi-Fi network, and that?s how it sends alerts to your smartphone if the alarm goes off. But the battery provides only backup power; the Roost Smart Smoke Alarm must be hardwired to your electrical system to operate. That?s because it?s a 4-in-1 alarm capable of detecting smoke, carbon monoxide, the flames from a fast-moving fire, and the presence of natural gas. Most of its competition?including the Nest Protect?lack that last feature, but the presence of all four sensors is why it must be hardwired, according to Roost.

Google Fiber halts expansion plans to review strategy

Google Fiber has paused plans to roll out fiber optic cables across a number of U.S. cities, as the company reevaluates its strategy to presumably use mainly wireless to provide high-speed Internet service.

Work on Google Fiber is to continue in in the cities where it has been launched or is under construction, wrote Craig Barratt, senior vice president at Alphabet and CEO of its Access unit, of which Google Fiber is a part. In the ?potential Fiber cities? where Google Fiber was still at the stage of exploratory discussions, the project will pause operations.
