Researchers have discovered it is possible to use soundwaves and viruses to ‘switch off’ memory formation in the brain.
Intel has acknowledged the massive, chip-level security flaw recently discovered in virtually all modern Intel processors; the vulnerability will require urgent fixes within Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Earlier Read More…
