DAST vs SAST - Dynamic Application Security Testing vs Static
In security testing, much like most things technical there are two very contrary methods, Dynamic Application Security Testing or DAST and Static Application Security Testing or SAST.
Dynamic testing relying on a black-box external approach, attacking the application in its running state as a regular malicious attacker would.
Static testing is more white-box looking at the source-code of the application for potential flaws.
Personally, I don’t see them as ‘vs’ each other, but more like they compliment each other – it’s easy to have SAST tests as part of your CI/CD pipeline with tools like Code Climate.

The Best Dehumidifier: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
After 40 hours of research and weeks of real-world testing in century-old stone basements, we think the Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 is the best dehumidifier for most people. It’s effective at drying air, it maintains an optimal level of humidity, and it’s easier to operate than any other model we tested.
Last updated: December 8, 2017
We’ve reviewed this guide and have changed our Also great pick. Our previous recommendation, GE’s APEL70LT, has been discontinued and swapped out for a near-identical replacement model, the GE APER70LW. We’re still confident in all of our dehumidifier recommendations.
Our pick
Frigidaire FFAD7033R1
Strong performance, easy to use
This dehumidifier achieves optimal moisture levels and is the simplest to set up, operate, and maintain.
$227* from ABT
$232 from Amazon
*At the time of publishing, the price was $230.
The Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 efficiently lowered the relative humidity in our test basements from 65 to 70 percent humidity to 45 or 50 percent, a level that inhibits mold yet remains comfortable to breathe. It held those levels consistently even during a week of nearly nonstop rain (like all our picks). It has the best interface of any model we tested, with large buttons and legible text easily visible in dim light. Detaching, emptying, and reattaching the reservoir was easier than on any other model we tested. It’s relatively quiet, it has a useful handle and wheels, and it even looks pretty nice, if you have to use it in a living space. Frigidaire is easier to deal with on warranty issues than most smaller brands, and this model is usually in stock online or at major retailers.

The Best Hiking Boots: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
The single most important thing to take with you on the hiking trail is a good pair of hiking boots. We had 28 hikers log 900 miles in 13 pairs of men’s hiking boots and 13 pairs of women’s boots. After they completed nearly 2 million steps in every climate and terrain imaginable, we came to the conclusion that the Salomon Quest 4D 2 GTX boots (men’s and women’s) are the best hiking boots for most people who plan to go day hiking and backpacking. They’re lightweight, breathable, and waterproof, and they have a wide toe box, which means they’re likely to fit almost any type of foot.
Our pick
Salomon Quest 4D 2 GTX (men’s)
A men’s hiking boot for all terrains and climates
This versatile, lightweight pair of boots is comfortable for both hiking and backpacking.
$230 from REI
Salomon Quest 4D 2 GTX (women’s)
A women’s hiking boot for all terrains and climates
These are the same boots as the men’s model, in women’s sizes.
$230 from REI
The Salomon Quest 4D 2 GTX boot (which comes in men’s and women’s models) might look too rugged for a day hike, but we found that these boots were the best of any we tested for both backpacking and day hiking on any terrain. They’re lighter than most of the other boots in our test group, but they still offer all the essential features you’ll need, including ample toe and heel protection, a gusseted tongue, a wide toe box, and a well-thought-out lacing system. The Quest 4D 2 GTX design is also breathable and waterproof.

The Best Carry-On Luggage: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
We’ve tested 46 bags over the past four years, and we remain convinced that the Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 is the best carry-on suitcase for most travelers. It packs five days’ worth of clothes into the maximum-allowed carry-on dimensions1 and offers premium build-quality touches you’d expect from a $500 suitcase for about half that price. And it’s protected by a lifetime warranty that covers airline damage—a rarity at any price.
Last updated: November 30, 2017
After trying 17 new carry-on suitcases for 2017, we remain confident in the Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 as our pick for most travelers—and our other picks haven’t changed either. But after doing extensive long-term testing and interviewing industry experts, we’re certain that most travelers would get more out of the superior maneuverability of spinner luggage compared with the slight capacity gains of two-wheeled luggage. We’ve also added information on so-called European and international carry-on picks after many reader requests.
Our pick
Travelpro Platinum Magna 2
Nice features, great value
For most travelers, this 21-inch spinner-style Travelpro offers the best balance of size, price, reliability, and durability, with high-end details.
$196* from Amazon
*At the time of publishing, the price was $190.

Super vs Super: 2017 & 2013 Hot Wheels ’67 Camaro – the Lamley Group
...So here is a practice run. Last year’s ’67 Camaro Super compared with…the 2013 ’67 Camaro Super. Easy, right?
Both are ’67 Camaros, and both are Supers, but there is a fair amount of difference. For one, the Summit Camaro is the old casting – metal base, opening hood. The 2017 Camaro is the new casting – plastic base, no opening hood. The Summit also goes a little more hot rod with wide rear wheels, while the red Camaro runs on narrow steelies...

The Best Travel Mug: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
After close to 78 hours of research and testing over the past four years, we still believe that the Zojirushi SM-SA48 Stainless Steel Mug is the best travel mug for keeping your drinks hot, preventing leaks, and accompanying you on any commute. In our latest round of testing, the Zojirushi kept liquids significantly hotter than any other mug we tried, even after 8 hours in the harsh environment of a freezer—and that’s important if you want to enjoy your drink for longer.
Last updated: December 1, 2017
For our 2017 update, we tested 13 mugs against our former top picks. The Zojirushi SM-SA remains our top pick for its unparalleled heat retention, tight-sealing lid, and slim, light design. The wider Contigo Autoseal Transit mug is our new Also Great pick, and we’ve also added a budget option: the Contigo Snapseal Byron.
Our pick
Zojirushi SM-SA48 Stainless Steel Mug
The best travel mug
The Zojirushi SM-SA (or SM-SC in certain colors) offers amazing heat-retention, one-handed usability, and a locking, leakproof lid.
$23* from ABT
$25 from Amazon
*At the time of publishing, the price was $24.
The Zojirushi SM-SA Stainless Steel Mug is an exceptional vacuum insulated travel mug that keeps beverages hot for hours, even in cold environments. It has a well-designed exterior, an easy-to-clean nonstick Teflon interior, and a foolproof lid locking mechanism that’s you can operate with one hand. The mug is lightweight and slim, but that means it may not fit snugly in some cup holders. The Zojirushi is also on the pricey end for a mug, but after years of long-term testing, it’s the mug we trust most not to spill in your bag, and it’s hard to put a price on that. (Actually, that would be about the price of a new bag, laptop, phone, and whatever else happened to be in there at the time.) It’s available in both 12- (SM-SA36) and 20-ounce (SM-SA60) versions as well as the 16-ounce size (SM-SA48) we tested. Zojirushi’s newer SM-SC mug is exactly the same as the SM-SA, but in different colors.
Also great
Contigo Autoseal Transit Mug
A wider, simpler mug
Contigo’s Autoseal Transit is a wider mug that may fit better in cup holders than our top pick. It doesn’t retain heat as well as the Zojirushi, but some may find the flat lid easier to drink from and clean.
$20* from Amazon
*At the time of publishing, the price was $25.
The Contigo Autoseal Transit Mug is a very different mug from the Zojirushi SM-SA, but it offers several features we like. The lid has fewer parts, is easier to clean, and prevents spills with its Autoseal button, which you have to hold down to keep the sipping port open. Plus, the flat lid won’t bump your nose or get in your line of sight while you’re drinking like the Zojirushi’s flip-top lid can. Although the Transit doesn’t keep drinks nearly as hot as the Zojirushi over a long period of time, some people might prefer this (we’ve heard complaints of the Zojirushi keeping drinks too hot in the past). The Transit is a little wider than the SM-SA, good if you want your mug to fit more snugly in a car cup holder or use devices like an Aeropress, pour-over dripper, or tea steeper directly with the mug, but this means it’s heavier and bulkier, too.

Portrait Mode: iPhone X vs. Pixel 2 XL vs. DSLR | iMore
Both iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL use computational photography to try and simulate depth of field — but how do they compare to a Canon with a fast 50 lens?
Computational photography is the biggest leap forward in image capture since digital photography freed us from film. iPhone X — like iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus — uses it and a dual lens camera system to capture depth data and then applies machine learning to create an artificial bokeh effect. The Pixel 2 XL borrows the phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF) system to grab depth data, combines it with a machine-learned segmentation map, and create a similar artificial bokeh.
But how do they compare to the optical quality of a Canon 5D Mark III paired with a 50mm ƒ/1.4 lens that doesn't need to compute or simulate anything?

Video frame rates: 24FPS vs. 30FPS vs. 60FPS explained | iMore
Which shooting frame rate should I use, and when should I use it?
The first phones that came with a camera that could capture video were an amazing breakthrough. No longer did you need to lug around a second camera if you wanted to make sure you could grab a quick video of something memorable or cool. Sure, the quality was pretty bad, but it was a whole lot better than nothing.
Today the cameras in phones like the iPhone 8 or Google Pixel 2 can grab amazing video. It's clear, smooth, and almost as good as a standalone mid-range video camera. They also have a lot more options than the older models did, and now things can get even more confusing with the ability to shoot at 24FPS (frames per second), 30FPS, or 60FPS. When should you use each?

Sevenoaks School is a two-time winner of our Independent Secondary School of the Year
There aren’t many schools that get to boast of being our Independent School of the Year. There are even fewer which get to claim the prize not once, but twice, with a record of consistent excellence that last saw Sevenoaks School walk off with the award 10 years ago.
It’s a record that head teacher Katy Ricks describes as a “validation for a very distinctive school”.
Results at Sevenoaks are among the very best in the country, ranking eighth overall in our independent schools’ ranking this year.

The Best Sport Sunglasses: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
After cycling, running, trail running, hiking, or snowshoeing daily over the course of two months, constantly swapping out and comparing more than a dozen brands and some 40 models of sunglasses, we believe that the Ryders Seventh with photochromic yellow lenses represents the best choice for eye protection in a wide range of activities, and at a great price. The Seventh deftly changes the amount of light it allows to pass through depending on light conditions, while always providing windshield-like protection and sharp contrast. We found this model to be extraordinarily versatile.
Our pick
Ryders Seventh
All-conditions shades at a great price
With yellow photochromic lenses, these sunglasses give you dawn-to-dusk versatility, work well for any sport, and are backed by a solid warranty and crash replacement plan.
$100 from Ryders Eyewear
We wore these glasses for foggy-morning bike rides and a mountain peak climb that entailed equal parts sunny exposure and forest shade. They have photochromic lenses—which means they get lighter or darker depending on how much sun they’re exposed to. It’s one of the features that makes this model such a good value. Not only is their price extremely reasonable for this technology, but they can also handle any variety of sports scenarios you throw at them, so you won’t have to buy several pairs. The yellow tint provides a high amount of contrast, so you can see rocks and slick patches as you roll down the trail at high speed.
The Seventh is not currently available in a prescription model. Ryders offers a three-year warranty against material or manufacturing defects, and a generous crash-replacement policy—a 50 percent discount to replace sunglasses should you face-plant with them, sit on them, or subject them to any other destructive horror.

The Mac Still Feels Like Home
When my 10.5" iPad Pro arrived I decided to do a little experiment. You see, I honestly believe that the iPad, iPhone, and other micro super-computers are the future of computing and I want to force myself out of old-man complacency. Five months ago I committed to that experiment and avoided using my Mac unless there was absolutely no way to do something on my iPad or iPhone. Last week I ended my experiment and I have a few opinions (big surprise).
As the title suggests, the Mac still feels more comfortable for almost everything. The Mac feels less innovative and "fun" but I actually feel more relaxed when using multiple windows, real keyboard shortcuts, and a true file manager. The irony here is that the size and design of the iPad makes it more of a joy to use, but it's also tainted by inefficiency. I do almost every task faster and more easily with my Mac than I can do it on my iPad Pro.
It’s not the screen size that makes the difference either. My opinions about computing also means that when my daughter needed her first computer, we settled on the iPad Pro 12.9 inch with it’s larger screen and spacious Smart Keyboard. I’ve worked on both and I can confidently say that the 12.9 inch iPad Pro is equivalent to my own 10.5 inch model. Both are less comfortable than my MacBook Pro 15 inch for most tasks.

The Best DNA Ancestry Testing Kit: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
After more than 80 hours of research and reporting, and evaluating results from a panel of testers representing every major population group, we think AncestryDNA is the best DNA testing service for most people who are curious about their ethnic roots or are searching for contemporary relatives. All five DNA services we tested involve compromises, and you should keep in mind that the TV ads for these companies suggest a level of certainty that is well beyond the science upon which current tests are based. But AncestryDNA presents your data in a way that is easier to understand than many of its rivals, makes use of the largest database of DNA participants we’ve seen, and is among the lowest-priced services we tested.
Last updated: August 30, 2017
We’ve updated this guide to reflect current DNA database information for our top pick. We’ve also clarified instances of both 23andMe and AncestryDNA selling anonymized user data to third-party research and pharmaceutical companies.
Our pick
AncestryDNA
Great for tracing your ethnic roots and finding living relatives
AncestryDNA makes it easy to explore your ethnic origins but can’t differentiate between maternal and paternal lineages.
$80 from AncestryDNA
AncestryDNA is our pick for those who want to learn about their relatively recent ethnic roots or are seeking to connect with unknown relatives. Though all of the DNA services we tested provided broadly similar results for the ethnic origins of our panel of testers, AncestryDNA did a better job than its rivals of presenting this data in a clear manner while placing the information in a useful historical context. And for those seeking distant cousins or even biological parents, the company’s claimed DNA database of 5 million customers—two and a half times larger than its closest competitor—increases the odds of successful family matches. Unlike the other services we tested, however, AncestryDNA cannot track your maternal and paternal heritage independently or trace your ancient migration path out of Africa, so although its clarity makes it a superior choice for most people’s needs, it may not satisfy more dedicated amateur genealogists.

The Best Handheld Vacuum: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
We’ve looked at 72 different handheld vacuums over more than 100 hours of research and testing in the past five years, and we think that the Black+Decker Max Lithium Flex Vacuum BDH2020FL is a great choice for most people. With its flexible 4-foot hose and clip-on attachments, it can reach into spots around your home and car that other vacuums can’t.
Last updated: November 14, 2017
After new research in late 2017, we’re changing our upgrade pick but keeping the rest of our picks the same.
Our pick
Black+Decker Max Lithium Flex Vacuum BDH2020FL
Great for home and car
Solid suction, a 4-foot flexible hose, and clip-on tools help our longtime pick reach spots in your car and home that other handheld vacuums at this price can’t touch.
$85 $78 from Amazon
You save $7 (8%)
$85 from Target
The Black+Decker Max Lithium Flex Vacuum BDH2020FL has enough suction to pick up Cheerios, road grit, and other common messes pretty quickly. It has a tool for brushing up pet hair, too. And the 16 minutes of no-fade run time should be enough to tidy up the interior of a three-row minivan or SUV. Plenty of handhelds have either stronger suction or better tools, but the Max Flex Vac is the only one that blends this kind of power and versatility for the price. It’s been our top pick since 2014, and we know that it holds up well over a few years of use.

The Best Bathroom Rugs and Bath Mats: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
After spending more than 20 hours researching bathroom rugs and mats, considering 49, and testing 17, we’ve found that the Lands’ End Supima Non-skid Bath Rug is our favorite. In our tests it hit the best balance between absorbing bathwater and drying quickly, and it’s made of better, longer-lasting materials than other rugs and mats we considered. It feels like a soft towel underfoot, and it offers a superior nonskid backing, plentiful color options, and a lifetime guarantee.
Last updated: November 10, 2017
We added long-term test notes on our also-great pick from Momentum Home.
Our pick
Lands’ End Supima Non-skid Bath Rug
The best bath rug
This woven cotton rug absorbs and dries quickly, and its latex nonslip backing is the best we found. The high-quality materials should last for years (and if they don’t, Lands’ End offers a lifetime guarantee).
$30 from Lands' End
(16 by 23 inches)
For this guide, we focused on affordable bath rugs and mats that come in a range of solid colors and sizes, with minimal to no pattern. We considered cotton and synthetic woven rugs, memory-foam mats, and wood mats. The Lands’ End rug outshone everything else we tested, largely because it’s made of higher-quality materials—long-staple cotton and a durable latex backing—but with preferences on a product like this being so subjective, we’ve also picked the best examples of all the rug types we considered.

The best wireless bluetooth headphones for running and working out | Ars Technica
We tested close to 20 workout headphones to see if any pair is worth buying.
Even as Bluetooth headphones continue to skyrocket in popularity, the state of wireless exercise headphones remains a bit hairy. Though the benefits of Bluetooth seem perfectly suited for the gym, and while there’s no shortage of demand for an uncompromised set of wireless workout headphones, the ideal pair always appears to be just out of reach.
I say this because I’ve spent the past few weeks searching for one pair of workout headphones I could unequivocally recommend to anyone. I called in 18 separate pairs for testing. I then put each one through a variety of workouts, from jogs to burpees to basketball games, to ensure they’d stay in place and not short-circuit when I sweat all over them.

The Best Wireless Earbuds: Wirecutter Reviews | A New York Times Company
After putting 25 models through more than 30 hours of testing by our expert listening panel, we’ve chosen the Phiaton BT 100 NC as the best Bluetooth earbuds for most people. Music sounds fantastic, calls are clear to both you and your caller, and the fit is comfortable. Plus, this pair is a fantastic value, with better performance and features than headphones that cost twice as much.
Last updated: November 13, 2017
We tested nine more pairs of Bluetooth earbuds and are still confident that the Phiaton BT 100 NC is your best bet.
Our pick
Phiaton BT 100 NC
The best Bluetooth earbuds
Fantastic sound, decent noise cancelling, and great for phone calls: The Phiaton BT 100 NC will get you through a busy day.
$56* from Amazon
*At the time of publishing, the price was $60.
The battery life on the BT 100 NC is about 7.5 to 12 hours depending on use, but these earbuds also function while charging—a feature that can be very helpful on cross-country flights or long workdays. If you need to connect to a non-Bluetooth source, the BT 100 NC functions in listen-only mode corded via an included ⅛-inch headphone jack. These headphones are water and sweat resistant, too, so if you get caught in the rain or perspire on a hot day, you won’t need to worry about them shorting out. That said, the collar can get in the way of vigorous workouts, so if you’re looking for your best bet for hitting the gym or going on a run, check out our guide to the best wireless exercise headphones.
