Owl Labs releases Owl Meeting 3

Owl Labs launches the first known Wi-Fi enabled AI powered 360° video conferencing camera. The new owl-like device comes equipped with three cameras, a new expansion mic, and enhanced Owl intelligence software paired with a new speaker system, which gives it the ability to detect and zoom in on whoever is speaking.

Its’ newly upgraded internals allow for faster and more accurate facial recognition. The new enhanced mic increases the audio range from the previous Meeting Owl 2, which provided a sound radius of up to 8 feet, to a much more improved 26-foot sound radius available in the Meeting Owl 3. This improvement allows companies to have larger and more productive meetings as more participants can be heard in a larger table setting.

Are Cybercriminals Targeting your Cell Phone?

Cybercriminals are looking to phones to gain access to sensitive information. If your phone has been acting abnormal it could have malware on it. Malware can arise in the guise of adware, spyware, or ransomware. Here are signs of malware—a sudden drop in cell phone performance, unusual notifications or pop-ups on your screen, audio disturbance during phone calls, new apps that you did not download—as the new app could be a website shortcut disguised as an app put on by malware through an infected browser, and increased data and power usage—as malware is using system resources to look for sensitive data to extract.

Cell phones have become an undeniable part of our everyday lives and hackers have taken notice. As technology continues to advance, so do the minds of the hackers and criminals behind the attacks, and we must do our best to avoid and prevent their disruption. While there is no foolproof method to stop these criminals from their malicious acts, it is always best to be aware of the signs, so that you can take the proper steps to protect your personal and private information and control the situation in the event that it happens.

Northern Virginia Datacenter Transmission Concerns

According to Andy Power, President and CFO at Digital Realty, a real estate investment trust owning and maintaining over 290 datacenters globally, there is not enough power transmission capacity in the area to manage all the bit barn projects. He stated this is because there are not enough lines to transfer enough energy. PJM Interconnect manages the electrical grid and has warned of transmission problems in Dominion’s Northern Virginia transmission zone.

Loudoun County has more than 25 million square feet of datacenter space with four million in development and pronounces to be the largest in the world. Power said that Dominion Energy had contacted major customers in the area and Digital Realty letting them know about a “pinch point” in eastern Loudoun County that could cause delays to 2026.
