New lithium-air battery survives hundreds of cycles

Batteries supply electrons by undergoing reversible chemical reactions. That has meant that all the reactants have to be inside the battery, which adds to its weight and volume. Lithium-air batteries could potentially change that situation. At one electrode, they have pure lithium metal rather than a lithium-containing chemical. At the other, the lithium reacts with oxygen in the air. When the battery is charged, this reaction is reversed, and the oxygen is returned to our atmosphere.

With far fewer chemicals permanently inside the battery, it's possible to achieve a much higher energy density—there have been demonstrations of lithium-air batteries with an energy density five times that of current lithium-ion tech. The only drawback? They have a lifespan of about a month, in part because both oxygen and metallic lithium are pretty reactive and in part because air offers a lot of things other than oxygen that can react.

Now, a team of researchers has figured out a way to protect against many of these reactions and showed that the resulting battery can survive hundreds of charge/discharge cycles in an air-like atmosphere. Which probably means the researchers are ready to figure out what goes wrong when this material meets actual air. The hope is that will be an easier issue to solve.

Dealmaster: Grab a new Logitech MX Master wireless mouse for $58

Ars Technica - March 22, 2018 - 6:30pm

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Every now and then, Amazon runs a collection of deals on Logitech accessories—today is one of those days. This haul isn't as far-reaching as some incarnations but still includes discounts on a few popular peripherals, including the Logitech MX Master, which is down to $58. That's about $15 off its usual going rate, and it's close to the lowest it has been on Amazon to date.

The MX Master is technically a generation behind the newer MX Master 2S, but it comes with a similarly sturdy, contoured, and wireless design and still works on most surfaces. The newer model does get you longer battery life (about 70 days instead of 40 days) and the ability to copy and paste between multiple computers, but it also costs $92 as of this writing.

If you want nothing to do with Logitech, though, we've also got discounts on Dell laptops, Amazon's entire line of Fire tablets, the Amazon Echo Spot, the Essential Phone, Nintendo's Switch Pro controller, and more. Take a look for yourself below.

Thousands of servers found leaking 750MB worth of passwords and keys

Ars Technica - March 22, 2018 - 6:17pm

Thousands of servers operated by businesses and other organizations are openly sharing credentials that may allow anyone on the Internet to log in and read or modify potentially sensitive data stored online.

In a blog post published late last week, researcher Giovanni Collazo said a quick query on the Shodan search engine returned almost 2,300 Internet-exposed servers running etcd, a type of database that computing clusters and other types of networks use to store and distribute passwords and configuration settings needed by various servers and applications. etcd comes with a programming interface that responds to simple queries that by default return administrative login credentials without first requiring authentication. The passwords, encryption keys, and other forms of credentials are used to access MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, content management systems, and other types of production servers.

Collazo said he wrote a simple script that ran through the 2,284 etcd servers found in his Shodan search. Using the query GET http://:2379/v2/keys/?recursive=true, the script was designed to return all credentials stored on the servers in a format that would be easy for hackers to use. Collazo stopped the script after it collected about 750 megabytes of data from almost 1,500 of the servers. The haul included:
