The Trump administration's Department of Justice (DOJ) today filed a lawsuit to block AT&T's proposed acquisition of Time Warner Inc.

AT&T has been the nation's largest pay-TV company since it acquired DirecTV in 2015. Acquiring Time Warner and its stable of popular TV programming would give the company too much control over programming and distribution, the DOJ said.

Together, AT&T and Time Warner would attempt to impede competition from online video distributors and raise prices on rivals that want access to Time Warner programming, the DOJ alleged.

No, you’re not being paranoid. Sites really are watching your every move

If you have the uncomfortable sense someone is looking over your shoulder as you surf the Web, you're not being paranoid. A new study finds hundreds of sites—including,, and—employ scripts that record visitors' keystrokes, mouse movements, and scrolling behavior in real time, even before the input is submitted or is later deleted.

Session replay scripts are provided by third-party analytics services that are designed to help site operators better understand how visitors interact with their Web properties and identify specific pages that are confusing or broken. As their name implies, the scripts allow the operators to re-enact individual browsing sessions. Each click, input, and scroll can be recorded and later played back.

A study published last week reported that 482 of the 50,000 most trafficked websites employ such scripts, usually with no clear disclosure. It's not always easy to detect sites that employ such scripts. The actual number is almost certainly much higher, particularly among sites outside the top 50,000 that were studied.

“You feel really stupid and you hope the CGI team makes you look good”

Ars Technica - November 20, 2017 - 9:41pm

Video shot and edited by Justin Wolfson. Click here for transcript. (video link)

These days, your typical science-fiction or fantasy movie is performed by casts of human actors—and even bigger casts of programmers. VFX (visual effects) are so crucial that there's now an entire genre of acting devoted to dealing with creatures and environments the actors never see. In some cases, the actors' entire bodies are transformed by digital effects. Others have intense, emotional scenes with tennis balls and traffic cones that are the placeholders for what will eventually become monsters or dramatic vistas.

We wanted to know how actors have adapted to a world where CGI reigns supreme. So last summer at San Diego Comic-con, we asked actors (and one director) to tell how they integrated VFX into their everyday experiences on set. You can see their responses in the video above.
