Who controls App Store: Martians or AI? Closed session of Russia's Federation Council and Apple leaked online

Legislation in IT IT-companies


Video recording of a closed session of the upper house of Russia's parliament was leaked online by Telegram channel A000MP97. In the video, Andrei Klimov, head of the Ad Hoc Sovereignty and Preventing Interference in the Domestic Affairs Commission, demands Apple to disclose who controls the App Store: people from Mars or artificial intelligence?

On September 16th, a closed session of the Commission took place, and representatives of Apple and Google were among those who were invited. The session discussed ways to protect sovereignty of the country, in particular, the fact that the Navalny app was still available in Apple App Store and Google Play. The services were accused of being complicit with organisations deemed extremist and banned in Russia as well as interference with Russian elections.

UAVCAN HITL UAV Simulator for PX4

Robotics development *Programming microcontrollers *Manufacture and development of electronics *Robotics Multicopters

Hi from RaccoonLab, a team of enthusiasts in field robotics! We want to share our true-HITL UAVCAN-based simulator for PX4.

We believe a unified UAVCAN bus for drone onboard electronics will become a mainstream approach shortly. Our simulator is already based on UAVCAN (in opposition to UART-MAVLINK) and emulates exactly the same messages as real UAVCAN-sensors.

Access the power of hardware accelerated video codecs in your Windows applications via FFmpeg / libavcodec

Intel corporate blog Working with video *Programming *
Tutorial
Since 2011 all Intel GPUs (integrated and discrete Intel Graphics products) include Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) — the dedicated hardware core for video encoding and decoding. Intel QSV is supported by all popular video processing applications across multiple OSes including FFmpeg. The tutorial focuses on Intel QSV based video encoding and decoding acceleration in Windows native (desktop) applications using FFmpeg/libavcodec for video processing. To illustrate concepts described, the open source 3D Streaming Toolkit is used.

Comparing Huawei ExaGear to Apple's Rosetta 2 and Microsoft's solution

Huawei corporate blog Compilers *CPU
Translation

November 10, 2020 was in many ways a landmark event in the microprocessor industry: Apple unveiled its new Mac Mini, the main feature of which was the new M1 chip, developed in-house. It is not an exaggeration to say that this processor is a landmark achievement for the ARM ecosystem: finally an ARM architecture chip whose performance surpassed x86 architecture chips from competitors such as Intel, a niche that had been dominated for decades.

But the main interest for us is not the M1 processor itself, but the Rosetta 2 binary translation technology. This allows the user to run legacy x86 software that has not been migrated to the ARM architecture. Apple has a lot of experience in developing binary translation solutions and is a recognized leader in this area. The first version of the Rosetta binary translator appeared in 2006 were it aided Apple in the transition from PowerPC to x86 architecture. Although this time platforms were different from those of 2006, it was obvious that all the experience that Apple engineers had accumulated over the years, was not lost, but used to develop the next version - Rosetta 2.

We were keen to compare this new solution from Apple, a similar product Huawei ExaGear (with its lineage from Eltechs ExaGear) developed by our team. At the same time, we evaluated the performance of binary translation from x86 to Arm provided by Microsoft (part of MS Windows 10 for Arm devices) on the Huawei MateBook E laptop. At present, these are the only other x86 to Arm binary translation solution that we are aware of on the open market.

Mēris botnet, climbing to the record

Яндекс corporate blog Qrator Labs corporate blog Information Security *IT Infrastructure *Network technologies *

Introduction

For the last five years, there have virtually been almost no global-scale application-layer attacks.

During this period, the industry has learned how to cope with the high bandwidth network layer attacks, including amplification-based ones. It does not mean that botnets are now harmless.

End of June 2021, Qrator Labs started to see signs of a new assaulting force on the Internet – a botnet of a new kind. That is a joint research we conducted together with Yandex to elaborate on the specifics of the DDoS attacks enabler emerging in almost real-time.

A note on small-signal modeling of SEPIC CM CCM

CAD/CAM *Circuit design *Manufacture and development of electronics *DIY Electronics for beginners
Tutorial

Knowing parameters of small-signal control-to-output transfer functions makes it easier for engineers to design compensation networks of DC/DC converters. The equations for SEPIC can be found in different works and Application Notes, but there are differences. A work has been done to solve this problem.

Simplified design equations for SEPIC with Current Mode control (CM) in Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM) suitable for practical design of compensation networks are shown.

Business trips with a cat on my lap or how to diversify remote work life

ISPsystem corporate blog

It has been a year since most of our life has become online. We at ISPsystem are used to working from the office and seeing all team members every day at arm's length. I adapted quickly to the new format. However, I will be honest; working remotely is not as easy as it may seem from the outside. Many fail to cope. The lack of live communication and the too familiar four walls make you not notice how the seasons change.

So how can one adapt to the situation? How to diversify your work, get new experiences and pump up your skills without leaving home? I want to share our experience with internal mission trips. It can be useful for companies that have several product teams at once.

In-Memory Showdown: Redis vs. Tarantool

Mail.ru Group corporate blog High performance *Database Administration *Tarantool *
image

In this article, I am going to look at Redis versus Tarantool. At a first glance, they are quite alike — in-memory, NoSQL, key value. But we are going to look deeper. My goal is to find meaningful similarities and differences, I am not going to claim that one is better than the other.

There are three main parts to my story:

  • We’ll find out what is an in-memory database, or IMDB. When and how are they better than disk solutions?
  • Then, we’ll consider their architecture. What about their efficiency, reliability, and scaling?
  • Then, we’ll delve into technical details. Data types, iterators, indexes, transactions, programming languages, replication, and connectors.

Feel free to scroll down to the most interesting part or even the summary comparison table at the very bottom and the article.

Load test of WebRTC recording on AWS

Flashphoner corporate blog System administration *Working with video *IT Infrastructure *DevOps *

Do you remember how just a few years ago it was a disaster to lose a camera at the end of a vacation? All memorable pictures and videos then disappeared along with the lost device. Probably, this fact prompted the great minds to invent cloud storage, so that the safety of records no longer depends on the presence of the devices on which these records are made.

XSS: attack, defense — and C# programming

PVS-Studio corporate blog Information Security *Programming *.NET *C# *

XSS - or cross-site scripting - is one of the most common vulnerabilities in web applications. It has been on the OWASP Top 10 list (the list of the most critical security risks to web applications) for a while now. So let's figure out together how your browser can acquire and execute a script from a third-party website, and what this may lead to (spoiler: your cookies could get stolen, for example). And while we're at it, we'll talk about ways you can protect yourself from XSS.
