Recently, a security researcher discovered that Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus was collecting detailed information from its users, prompting widespread concerns about user privacy. Now, the company has responded to concerns, and says that it will scale back its collection efforts.

Ever since Ron Howard took over production on the next standalone Han Solo Star Wars film in June, he has posted a number of images from the set, teasing a variety of locations and characters.

Supplies still aren’t reaching where they’re needed in Puerto Rico, and some people desperate for water are getting it from hazardous sources. After evaluating five places deemed especially hazardous to health and the environment, so-called Superfund sites, Environmental Protection Agency staff saw people accessing wells at a chemical-tainted water source on the northern coast of Puerto Rico.
“We have confirmed that residents accessed wells only at the Dorado site,” an EPA spokesperson told The Verge in an email. The contaminated wells in Dorado are part of two water systems that together supply water to more than 67,000 people. Industrial solvents have been tainting portions of this…

Samsung Electronics’ earnings guidance for the third quarter of 2017 is out, and it’s looking like another record for the Korean giant. The company expects to have made around 14.5 trillion won (~$12.8 billion) in operating profit off 62 trillion won (~$54.7 billion) in revenue; last quarter it made 14.1 trillion won, its highest ever quarterly figure.
The earnings would represent a year-on-year revenue increase of approximately 28 percent and a huge operating profit jump of more than 170 percent. Of course, Samsung took a major hit a year ago from the Galaxy Note 7 recall debacle, but today’s figures — and the well-received Galaxy Note 8 — suggest the company is largely out of those woods. Samsung will issue more financial details with…

Google has decided to “permanently remove” the feature that led to a “small number” of Home Mini units accidentally recording thousands of times a day, instead of just when a user triggers it. In a statement released today, the company said that it made the decision because “we want people to have complete peace of mind while using Google Home Mini.”
The Home Mini shipped with a feature that let owners activate the Google Assistant and control music by tapping the top of the speaker. But it turned out that some units had an issue: they would register touches even when no one was there, leading the units to start recording over and over and over again, which is pretty darn creepy. Android Police identified the error on one of its review…
