Clubhouse leaked data trove including phone numbers isn’t as bad as it sounds

The social audio app has denied that it was breached in July, saying its network was merely scraped by a bot.

More than 3.8 billion pieces of data from Clubhouse are up for sale on the dark web, according to a news report by the outlet CyberNews. But it’s not the type of valuable leak that it might sound like.

The social audio app made headlines back in July when news came out that data from the network had appeared on hacker forums. At the time, CEO Paul Davidson said that the app wasn’t hacked but rather someone had used a bot to crawl its API and collect public information on every user in its database. But now, CyberNews has published a story saying that the trove of data being sold includes not just usernames and emails, but also private phone numbers.

A slew of new Echo hardware is on the way, according to a new report from Bloomberg. Most notably, Amazon is reportedly developing a large Echo with a 15-inch display that could be mounted onto a wall. It’s also working on a soundbar, a new Echo Auto, and wearables.

Amazon is set to host a hardware event on September 28, where these new products (or at least some of them) are expected to be introduced.

California will require all autonomous cars to be zero-emissions

Most self-driving cars in development are already fully electric, but a new law isn't taking any chances.

California has passed a new bill that will require all autonomous vehicles operating in the state to be zero emissions by 2030.

Self-driving technology is still in its infancy, with most vehicles still under supervised testing. And just a small fraction of the state’s 15 million vehicles are at all autonomous. But this new law, SB 500, foresees a future when the technology has matured to the point that it lives up to its lofty expectations of replacing most people’s private cars with shared driverless taxis.

Roblox takes a page from the ‘Fortnite’ playbook with new Listening Parties

Poppy is releasing her new album Flux as the game's first listening party event.

Popular video-game-slash-multiverse Roblox is introducing a new Listening Party feature, whereby artists can host release-day events for their legions of virtual fans. To celebrate the new feature, singer Poppy is “touring” various Roblox games to urge players to listen to her latest studio album, Flux, which releases today.

“We want to keep finding new ways to make music more of an integral part of the Roblox experience,” said Jon Vlassopulos, head of music at Roblox. “Allowing Poppy’s fans to enjoy her new album Flux where they are already spending time with their friends seemed like a no brainer, and our developers have jumped at the opportunity to participate!”

Poppy is the perfect choice for a spokesperson to launch this feature, really. She’s spent a sizable portion of her music career presenting as an uncanny android who ranted about internet culture on YouTube. She was also nominated for a Grammy this year. So yeah, a launch party for her music in the Roblox multiverse is pretty spot-on.
