EU fines Google $2.72 billion, orders changes in search results

Google abused its dominant position in the search engine market to illegally promote its comparison shopping service, the European Union's top antitrust authority ruled Tuesday,slapping the company with a ?2.42 billion (US$2.72 billion) fine.

The consequence could be still greater differences in the ways Google presents search results to users in the U.S. and to those in the EU.

The European Commission gave the the company 90 days to change its ways or face additional fines of up to 5 percent of average daily worldwide sales of parent company Alphabet for each day that the infringement continued.

The Commission's ruling targets the way Google uses its search service to promote another service, "Google Shopping", previously known as Google Product Search and Froogle.

OnePlus 5 review: This mid-range Android phone is speedy inside, but stale ou...

There are certain things you can usually count on in a OnePlus phone: great performance, an awesome price, and a touch of originality. But with the OnePlus 5, you?re only getting the first two parts of the three-part equation.

The OnePlus 5 is packed with the latest components on the inside, but its display is nothing special. It?s still a good deal cheaper than other premium phones, but even at a starting price of $479, it?s not quite a killer bargain. And its design, while nice-looking, is derivative of both previous OnePlus phones as well as Apple?s aging iPhone 7 Plus.

How to secure your CMS with out patching

In as little as four hours, the bad guys can reverse engineer a software patch for an open-source content management system (CMS) and build an exploit capable of turning millions of websites into spammers, malware hosts or DDoS attackers.

"There's just not enough time for normal site owners to apply the updates," said David Jardin, a member of the German association CMS Garden, which promotes the use of open source CMS software including Drupal, Joomla, WordPress and others.

To help ordinary users patch more quickly, CMS Garden is participating in a government-funded project, Secure Websites and Content Management Systems (Siwecos), to make the websites of SMEs more secure.

PNY GTX 1080 Ti XLR8 OC review: A gorgeous graphics card with great value

Let?s be frank: Most of the customized versions of Nvidia?s beastly GeForce GTX 1080 Ti that you can buy offer largely similar levels of gaming performance. This monstrous GPU pushes Nvidia?s Pascal architecture as far and fast as it?ll go.

That?s good in some ways. Aside from Founders Edition models, you know you aren?t leaving performance on the table by opting for one custom GTX 1080 Ti over another, and you shouldn?t have any problem pushing clock speeds up around the 2GHz range if you want to try your hand at manual overclocking. But it also means that custom cards need to bring a little something extra to the table if they want to stand out from the crowd.

Amazon's Echo has dropped to an all-time low of $130

Today, Amazon and Best Buy are offering the cheapest price yet on the Amazon Echo at $50 off. The popular smart speaker is available right now for $130 instead of the usual sticker price of $180.

The price of the Echo has been fluctuating a bit in recent months with sales going as low as $140 to $150. In May, Amazon and Best Buy did a discounted "two pack" where you could get two Echo units for $280. Today's deal beats that sale by $20 if you were to buy two, and it's the best price we've seen since the Echo's launch.

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition: Benchmarks and behind-the-scenes AMD interview

AMD?s first graphics card based on the Vega graphics architecture launches this week, and we?ve gotten our grubby hands on it.

The $1,200 Radeon Vega Frontier Edition goes toe-to-toe against Nvidia?s Titan Xp in prosumer applications, with the gamer-focused Radeon RX Vega series slated to launch at the end of July. In time for the Vega Frontier Edition?s June 27 launch AMD brought a vanload of hardware by PCWorld?s offices to see how it handles. Check out our Radeon Vega Frontier Edition hands-on preview for the full details, but we thought you might want a glimpse behind the curtain, too. The video above shows our extended interview and testing session with AMD?s Nick Pandher and Omar Faiz.

Photoshop fonts: Creating swashes, swirls and flourishes

In our first story on Photoshop fonts, we covered font and paragraph attributes, plus how to alter the shapes of a word, phrase, or sentence, which (obviously) affects the shapes of the fonts. The instructions targeted Creative Suite users, which means the path to altering a string of text is Edit > Transform > Warp. If you?re using Photoshop version 6.x or 7.x (pre-Creative Suite), the Warp feature is under Layer > Type > Warp Text.

This follow-on article explains how to add swashes, swirls, and flourishes that turn words into a visual feast. Nothing makes typefaces pop more than a few well-placed calligraphic swirls. Even though some fonts already fall into the script or calligraphy categories, they can be difficult to read and are often too decorative for a full word or phrase.

How to use Evernote in Linux

Evernote does not offer an official desktop client for Linux, but there are a few workarounds. For a better-than-browser experience, try one of these methods.

Evernote Web and Chrome app

The browser-based version of Evernote is the only officially supported way of using the application on Linux. It works, but if you?re a tab hoarder like me, editing your notes in a tab in a sea of tabs can be a bit tricky. On top of that, there is the additional baggage of running a full-fledged web browser.

Alex Campbell

The Evernote Chrome application works just like the web application without the UI cruft of running it in a web browser window.

Amazon Dash Wand review: A home shopping device made for a not-too-distant fu...

Amazon will sell you groceries, one way or another. Case in point: The day before it announced plans to buy Whole Foods for a cool $13.7 billion, it released Amazon Dash Wand, a small Alexa-powered gadget that will likely be just as integral to the company?s produce push.

Amazon?s new scanning stick is Jeff Bezos?s latest attempt to link the virtual world with the physical one. But even though it?s not Amazon?s first shot at a home shopping assistant, it?s definitely the first fully formed one. Combining the ease of a Dash button with the versatility of the relatively unknown Dash scanner and the smarts of an Echo, Dash Wand could be the thing that finally streamlines the way we buy groceries, and eliminates checkout lines, empty refrigerators, and even trips to the store. But that?s going to take a while.

Hands-on: AMD's Radeon Vega Frontier Edition vs Nvidia Titan Xp

AMD?s Radeon Vega Frontier Edition may be a graphics card made for workstations, but gamers are just as eager to see what this GPU can tell us about the consumer version. AMD has already made a splash with its Ryzen and Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, and now Vega can help complete a high-performance puzzle. To show how the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition could benefit workstations, AMD officials gave us a hands-on preview of one of the first production cards.

IDG/Gordon Mah Ung

AMD?s Radeon Vega Frontier Edition features a glowing yellow ?R? and blue-LED indicators that match the GPU utilization.
