Python module repo "PyPi" has been having trouble lately... different author each time, different upload source each time, and the code compiles, but the name and readme are kinda sus.

After the treadmill downloaded an update Peloton said was designed to make the device safer, users reported they could no longer run on it without paying Peloton a $39.99 per month subscription fee. "We care deeply about the safety and well being of our Members and we created Tread Lock to secure your Tread+ against unauthorized access," Peloton said in an email it sent to customers. "Unfortunately at this time 'Just Run' is no longer accessible without a Peloton Membership."

The "Just Run" feature is how you use the device as a normal fucking treadmill without a client-server session for online classes.

Fucking yikes. This is why you can't trust "smart tvs" or "smart lightbulbs" or any of that shit unless it's open source

A map of fitness-tracker data may have compromised top-secret US military bases around the world



Quote
Over the weekend a company called Strava, a social network for people who want to track their workouts, updated an online map showing the routes of 1 billion workouts in 2017.

But in doing so, it seems to have exposed secret US military bases in Turkey, Syria, and Yemen.

Previously covert bases may have been exposed, and highly trafficked locations within known bases have been highlighted.

Additionally, some users may have left the trackers on while going about normal business. Important supply routes and key daily routines have most likely been picked up by the heat map.
