5 hours in Hyrule: Previewing ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Preview

Breath of the Wild doesn't feel like a Zelda game. At least, not at first.

After being woken up from an abnormally long slumber by a mysterious voice, Link is immediately set loose into a Hyrule that's both larger and more threatening than any version of the fictional kingdom we've explored in the past. In the opening moments, there are no friendly faces to welcome you to the world or cutscenes to explain where you've been. There's just an endless expanse ahead of you and an old man cooking apples down the path to your right. More than ever, Link is on his own.

Apple says it fixed the unexpected iPhone 6/6s shutdown issue for some users

iPhone 6s Battery Shutdown Issue

Some iPhones out there keep shutting down unexpectedly, even when there’s enough battery left. Apple has made few official comments on the matter since the problems started plaguing various devices including the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6. The company kicked off a limited battery replacement program for the iPhone 6s, without including older devices in it. Apple did suggest that future software updates might fix the battery issues, without revealing more details. And it appears that, contrary to what we thought, iOS 10.2.1 actually fixes some the unexpected shutdowns.

Cloudflare security breach exposes data from Uber, Fitbit, OKCupid among 3,400 websites; password changes recommended

User data from 3,400 websites has been leaked and cached by search engines as a result of a bug in Cloudflare, a content delivery network. Sites affected over the course of several months include major ones like Uber, Fitbit and dating site OKCupid. 1Password also uses Cloudflare, but says that end-to-end encryption means that no customer data was exposed.

ArsTechnica reports that the leaks were spotted by Google security researcher Tavis Ormandy.

We observed encryption keys, cookies, passwords, chunks of POST data and even HTTPS requests for other major cloudflare-hosted sites from other users. Once we understood what we were seeing and the implications, we immediately stopped and contacted cloudflare security.

Cloudflare has admitted that the breach occurred, but Ormandy and other security researchers believe the company is underplaying the severity of the incident …
