    Google has introduced the reCAPTCHA v3, which is its newest API that helps you detect abusive traffic on your website without user interaction. Instead of showing a CAPTCHA challenge, reCAPTCHA v3 returns a score so you can choose the most appropriate action for your website. With reCAPTCHA v3, Google is fundamentally changing how sites can test for human vs. bot activities by returning a score to tell you how suspicious an interaction is and eliminating the need to interrupt users with challenges at all. reCAPTCHA v3 runs adaptive risk analysis in the background to alert you of suspicious traffic. reCAPTCHA v3 introduces a new concept called “Action”—a tag that you can use to define the key steps and enable reCAPTCHA to run its risk analysis in context. In the reCAPTCHA admin console, you can get a full overview of reCAPTCHA score distribution and a breakdown for the stats of the top 10 actions on your site. reCAPTCHA v3 will provide you with a score that tells you how suspicious an interaction is. There are three potential ways you can use the score. First, you can set a threshold that determines when a user is let through or when further verification needs to be done. Second, ...

    Earlier this month LG has introduced the LG V40 ThinQ flagship with triple rear-cameras that are arranged horizontally. However, the company might be working on a new design for the camera setup. The patents for the same are published by the USPTO United States Patent and Trademark Office on October 23, 2018. This patent hints at three smartphone designs with a triple rear camera setup on the back. This camera setup is, however, significantly different from that of the V40 ThinQ. The Model A shows a design with narrow screen edges and a fingerprint scanner on the back, as well as three cameras and a flash. The cameras and flash are placed in a square setup, similar to the Huawei Mate 20 series.   While the Model B design is almost identical to the model A, the display corners are significantly more rounded. Model C has a considerably rounder housing. As the radius of the display roundings become larger, the screen edges on the sides seem to decrease slightly. It is also possible that LG might opt Huawei's square camera setup, but it is difficult to predict the future. It is also not clear if the design is intended for flagship or will find its way to Q-series. In any case, it is ...

    Mobile projectors are an interesting category of products that can be useful to business men on the go as well as people who might want to throw up a larger screen at impromptu gatherings to view photos or play casual games. Sony's been making these for a number of years now, and they recently launched the latest model in the series. Sony sent us over the all new MP-CD1 in for review and here's what we think about it.  Hardware Sony is positioning the MP-CD1 as something that would appeal to business travelers and that really shows in the design of the hardware and packaging.  The entire design is simple with clean lines and a staid, almost boring, black and chocolate brown metal finish. The projector is about the size of a really large smartphone and ships with a very nice leather case. The case looks quite sturdy and should suffice to prevent scratches and scuffs with the projector in your travel bag. On the front is the projector lens. Curiously, Sony has shifted from laser based projection on their previous mobile projectors to a Texas Instruments DLP unit that can go as bright as 105 lumens. The shift to DLP projection means ...
