  FBI won't be forced to reveal San Bernardino iPhone hacking tool The Associated Press, USA Today and Vice News have failed in their attempt to reveal the hacking tool the FBI used to access San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook's iPhone.She also rejected the argument that former FBI director James Comey's mention of a "very high" price equated to official disclosure that compelled a wider release. The information had to be more specific than that, according to the ruling. And while Comey noted that the tool was only effective against an iPhone 5c running iOS 9, the FBI could theoretically find a way to expand its usefulness or ask the developer to build a similar implementation.

  Nintendo’s SNES Classic can run sideloaded games with this tool © Provided by The Verge It’s been little more than a week since the SNES Classic was released, but there’s already a tool available for those who want to add more games to the console (just like the NES Classic before it). The hack comes from Russian user Cluster who has updated his hakchi2 tool, which can sideload extra games onto the NES Classic, so that it now supports the same thing on the SNES version.

There are release notes and a Reddit FAQ if you want to see how it all works or potentially do this with your own device. (Just remember the legality of emulator ROMs is dubious.) Cluster says the in-built emulator can support 75 percent of SNES games and there are workarounds for those that don’t run. The SNES Classic is also capable of running sideloaded NES titles, too.

Instagram adds polling stickers to Stories

  Instagram adds polling stickers to Stories Instagram is making its Stories a little more interactive with a new polling feature that users can add with a “poll” sticker. Adding polls is similar to any other sticker on Instagram: just drag and drop it onto your image in your story, and you’ll automatically be presented with the option to customize the question and choices. People viewing your story will be able to tap on a choice to vote, which will then show the overall results so far. To see the results for yourself, simply open up the viewers list for that image or video on your story, and it will show you total vote numbers, who voted, and what they chose.

It’s probably tempting to add more titles than the 21 loaded on the SNES Classic from the Super Nintendo’s vast collection of games, given that the NES Classic had 30. Still, cracking your console more than likely undermines its warranty, and with the SNES Classic in high demand and limited stock, do you really want to risk it?

Nintendo did leave a cheeky message to those who do hack into the console, however:

Nintendo Switch update adds video capture and profile transfers .
Nintendo's convertible Switch console has a new software update available, and owners will likely want to grab version 4.0.0 of its OS right away. In a world full of Twitch streams and YouTube Let's Plays that should be well received. Just like before, gamers can press the capture button to take a screenshot, but after the update, they can press and hold it to record the last 30 seconds of play in their album, ready for sharing to Facebook or Twitter.
