Twitter has admitted a bug in its system caused all 330m of its users' passwords to appear in plain text, free from the protection provided by encryption.

The social media site alerted its users to the error on Thursday evening, saying the bug had been fixed and an investigation had returned no evidence of a breach or that the data had been misused.

Sinclair Spectrum designer Rick Dickinson dies in US   

Rick Dickinson, the designer of Sinclair computers, has died in the US while receiving treatment for cancer.

The British designer, thought to be in his 60s, worked in-house for Sinclair Research and oversaw the creation of its home computers in the 1980s.

He was responsible for the boxy look of the ZX80 and ZX81 and the Bauhaus-inspired appearance of the Spectrum.

Mr Dickinson also helped to develop the technologies for the UK company's touch-sensitive and rubber keyboards.

He was recently linked to a crowd-funded project by Retro Computers to turn the Spectrum into a handheld computer. Some of the early reference designs for the machine were drawn up by him.

MintBox Mini 2   

The MintBox Mini just got better again!

Based on the Compulab Fitlet2, the new Mini is just as small as the original MintBox Mini and the MintBox Mini Pro but with much better specifications, better performance and a few more features.

The top heatsink is slightly taller than before for the all-metal black housing to provide better passive cooling for the upgraded specs. The small size of the unit is still very impressive. 

Just as before, the unit is completely silent and it has no fans or moveable parts. It's also dust and humidity resistant and designed to operate at the full industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. The warranty from Compulab is the same as before: an unconditional 5 years.

The dual-band antennas and the kensington lock moved to the right side. The front of the unit provides two USB 3.0 ports, audio and micro jacks and a microSD slot.

MICROSOFT is scheduled to roll-out its blockbuster new Windows 10 update Spring Creators Update in the coming days. Ahead of the launch, how to block the feature-packed upgrade.
Windows 10 Spring Creators Update is set to roll-out worldwide, starting from today, April 10th.

Microsoft typically staggers the roll-out its blockbuster updates to alleviate strain on its servers, so it might be a few more days until the new software drops for you.

Users who are signed-up to the Windows Insiders scheme can kickstart the update early.

However, some users might want to delay the blockbuster update and for good reason.

Although the operating system upgrade has gone through a rigorous beta testing process, some bugs and glitches could still have made it through.

Also, while this latest update doesn't dramatically change the layout of Windows 10, there are still a number of crucial change

Apple launches iOS 11.3 with raft of privacy features   

Apple is launching a major privacy push, with software updates across all its devices to introduce new data privacy information immediately, with an updated website offering new privacy management tools to follow in May.

Thursday's updates (macOS 10.13.4, iOS11.3 and tvOS 11.3) are prompted by the enormous new European data protection regulation GDPR, and have been in the works since at least January. But they come at a good time for the company, whose head Tim Cook has been merrily capitalising on the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal, publicly rebuking Mark Zuckerberg over the social network's business model.
