The Car-Replacement Bicycle (the bakfiets)

quote [ When we were moving back to Canada, we knew we'd need a car, but we couldn't afford one after the move. Thankfully, we found an electric bakfiets, and not only did it take the place of a car, it also saved us thousands of dollars in the process. ]

Kinda want one now. If I didn't have my cat I might just settle on a bike and a tent instead of my van.

To Uncover a Deepfake Video Call, Ask the Caller to Turn Sideways

quote [ There is an interesting vulnerability in video deepfakes that, to date, has been generally overlooked by the security research community, perhaps because 'live', real-time deepfakes in video calls have not been a major cause for concern until very recently. ]

I love how they didn't choose a clickbait title.
