Apple Exaggerates MacBook Standby Battery Life, Owners Report - article by By on January 12, 2018 at 3:02 pm

The last six months haven’t been particularly kind to Apple. The company’s decision to throttle its phones to preserve battery life without ever telling users it did so. Now it’s under fire for allegedly false claims about the standby time and overall power consumption of its MacBook Pros. And, as has become typical, it’s not doing anything about it.

Multiple Mac users have reported that the standby power consumption of MacBooks and MacBook Pros is much higher than it ought to be, a problem that persists across models and operating systems. VentureBeat rounded up some examples of user complaints, with some people reporting drains of up to 6 percent per day when the laptop is literally shut down and 15 percent per day if left in standby with the lid closed. This is far higher than would be expected for a device of this type, and Apple’s messaging, so far, has been “working as intended.” One Apple Genius told a user that the issue represented “normal behavior with the new hardware generation.”

Initial coin offerings (ICOs) – the hottest trend in crypto-currency – are facing increased threats from hackers.

An ICO is an unregulated means of crowdfunding via use of crypto-currency. Ethereum is, as of 2017, the leading blockchain platform for ICOs, with more than 50% market share. However, the Ethereum network ICOs have resulted in much phishing, Ponzi schemes, and other scams, accounting for about 10% of ICOs. Yesterday, Chinese regulators officially outlawed all ICOs, demanding that the proceeds from all past ICOs be refunded to investors or face being "severely punished according to the law". This action by Chinese regulators resulted in large sell-offs for most crypto-currencies.

Although ICOs are not banned in the US, the country's Securities and Exchange Commission on 25 July ruled that ICOs should be treated as investment securities and subject to the relevant regulations. Following the announcement, some ICO promoters responded to the ruling by either tightening access to ICOs, or by making them unavailable to US investors.
