  2. Five members of the Congressional Committee have accused Amazon's top executives of either misleading or blatantly lying to it about its business practices and said they are considering an investigation following publication of two damning reports last week. From a report: Reuters and the Markup reported last week that Amazon uses the data of third-party sellers on its platform to inform and create its private-label products. Both the outlets also noted that Amazon then gives preference to its own portfolio over those of the rivals when customers look up for products. The letter, addressed to Amazon chief executive Andy Jassy, says it's offering Jassy "a final opportunity to provide exculpatory evidence to corroborate the prior testimony and statements on behalf of Amazon to the Committee." In the letter, the lawmakers also said the committee is considering whether it would be appropriate to refer the Department of Justice to launch a criminal investigation into the subject.

  3. One of Lucy’s solar panels fully deployed before its launch | Image: Lockheed Martin A robotic spacecraft that NASA just launched to explore clusters of asteroids around Jupiter may be in some slight trouble on its journey through space. The space probe, named Lucy, is having issues with one of its two main solar panels, which are critical for gathering rays from the Sun and generating power for the spacecraft on its 12-year trip through the Solar System. NASA launched Lucy early in the morning on Saturday, October 16th, on top of an Atlas V rocket from Florida. The launch was deemed a success, putting Lucy on its trajectory to reach Jupiter’s asteroids, named the Trojans, by 2027. “In the current spacecraft attitude, Lucy can continue to operate.” But on Sunday, NASA announced that one of Lucy’s 24-foot-wide solar...

  4. Pixel 6 color choices | Image: Google Google’s upcoming phones have made early appearances in leaks over, and over, and over, and over, and over again, so it’s really no surprise that someone seems to have obtained a retail-boxed Pixel 6 unit ahead of the fall launch event tomorrow. In a video posted initially to TikTok, then deleted but still available on Twitter, @CristianDimboiu takes a literal approach to unboxing by removing the “Sorta Seafoam” green device from its carrier without going any further. You won’t see the screen turn on or see the screen at all.

  6. Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Third-party health apps that pull patient data from electronic health record systems are vulnerable to hacks, according to a new report. The electronic health records themselves, which are housed at health centers and subject to the federal privacy law HIPAA, are well protected. But as soon as a patient gives permission for their data to leave the health record and head toward a third-party app — like programs that track people’s medications, for example — it’s easy for hackers to access. Hospitals and health care systems are a major target for hackers, and attacks have only escalated over the past few years. Patient health data is some of the most valuable information to hackers: each record can be worth hundreds of dollars on the... Continue reading… View the full article

  10. Marvel Entertainment Disney has just announced delays for its 2022 Marvel films, along with the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie, all of which have been pushed back to later in the year or moved to 2023. The Marvel movie shifts are the usual chain reaction delay: to push back one movie means pushing back all of them, so there’s a domino effect in pushing everything back a bit: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is moving from March 25th, 2022 to May 6th (when Thor: Love and Thunder was originally intended to be released). Thor: Love and Thunder, in turn, moves from May 6th to July 8th (when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was originally scheduled). Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is moving from July 8th to November 11th (when Captain Marvel... Continue reading… View the full article

  14. TV broadcasts for Sinclair-owned channels went down Sunday across the US in what the stations have described as technical issues, but which multiple sources told The Record to be a ransomware attack. From the report: The incident occurred in the early hours of the day and took down the Sinclair internal corporate network, email servers, phone services, and the broadcasting systems of local TV stations. As a result of the attack, many channels weren't able to broadcast morning shows, news segments, and scheduled NFL games, according to a barrage of tweets coming from viewers and the TV channels themselves. "Internally, it's bad," a source who had to call Sinclair employees on their personal numbers to get more details about the attack, told The Record earlier today in a private conversation.
