There's nothing more disconcerting than having the pair of shoes you once considered buying stalking you around the web, popping up in advertisements while you read the morning news, browse Facebook or send an email.

Nothing, it seems, is truly private online, whether it's your shopping history, the medical conditions you Google or hobbies that interest you.

Online marketers have cashed in, identifying ways to direct advertisements to consumers, pinpointing their locations, interests and insecurities. For some internet users, it can be a struggle to view all that advertising without succumbing to impulse shopping and other bad financial behaviors.

"It's like window-shopping 24 hours a day, but window-shopping that is targeted specifically to you," says Paul Stephens, director of policy and advocacy for Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a San Diego-based nonprofit that advocates for consumers' privacy rights. "The stores that you're window-shopping in know everything about you."

With Congress recently overturning online privacy protections limiting what internet service providers, such as AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, can do with your online information, consumers may need to adopt a do-it-yourself attitude when it comes to protecting personal data, including browsing habits, location data and financial information.

If a lack of online privacy makes you want to grab your computer, head to the woods and set it on fire, don't despair. You can take some simple measures to somewhat protect your privacy by tweaking things like your search engine, browser settings and social media habits. Experts do warn, however, that you are unlikely to ever be able to totally hide your online footprint. (And, unfortunately, for those who want to secure information from internet service providers, who will now find it easier to sell user data, per the recent Congressional action, privacy options are even tougher to implement.) Here's what to know.

For more than a century, the world's fair has drawn millions from around the globe to showcase international achievement and technological innovation.

Countries have hosted the fair around the world ever since 32 countries first convened in London, England for the Great Exhibition of 1851. The months-long event, which in 1967 began using "expo" rather than "fair," will take place this year in Astana, Kazakhstan. The theme of Expo 2017, which begins on June 10, is "future energy" and comes on the heels of President Donald Trump's announcement to withdraw the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord.

The world's fair takes on a different life each year, but each event typically looks to the future with larger-than-life prototypes and dioramas.

But for every hit – like the Ferris wheel or waffles – there has been a failure, or, in many cases, ideas that never came to full fruition.

Here's a look at some of the inventions from world's fairs past that could have changed everyday life:

1. Computerized Highway
2. Elektro
3. Disappearing Appliances
4. An Underwater Hotel
5. An Electric City

After a year of waiting, Microsoft has finally lifted the lid on Project Scorpio, or, as it's now called... the Xbox One X.

The newest iteration of the Xbox One was originally announced at E3 2016, so it's only right that Microsoft return to the Los Angeles Convention Centre stage a year later to show it off.
Touted as the world's most powerful console, the system has been built with delivering both 4K visuals and virtual reality with a, dare we say, strong and stable performance.

RAM has been ramped up to 12GB of memory, and it has a beefy 326GB/s of memory bandwidth. Microsoft also said it is capable of "supersampling", which supposedly means users won't need a 4K TV to see new video quality.

Something that will definitely please avid Xbox fans is the fact that older-generation controllers and games will work on the Xbox One X.When can you get your hands on it? The Xbox One X's release date has been set for November 7 and the price will be £449 in the UK – $499 in the States.

We're only two days into this year's E3 and we've already seen loads of great looking footage of Star Wars: Battlefront II, including Darth Maul and the adorable battle droids in action, and the announcement of The Last Jedi free DLC.

LONDON: WhatsApp users should be on the lookout as scammers are trying to charge users for using the instant messenger by faking a subscription fee.
"People are being targeted by a message that reads 'your subscription has expired, and to verify your account and purchase a lifetime subscription for just 0.99 GBP simply tap on this link'," Independent.co.uk reported.

The instant messenger is free to download and use, but used to charge a small fee several years ago which no longer exists.
By encouraging people to click on the suspicious link, scammers are tricking people into providing their payment details.
People who have received the message should delete it immediately.

In case you have clicked on the link, safeguard yourself by running an antivirus software on your device to ensure you not being infected with malware.
Users can also also block the sender, so that they can no longer message or call you through WhatsApp.

Android has a reputation for poor security, but that’s a result of past failings. Most security flaws you hear
about now affect old builds of the OS, or require clever social engineering to get the user to weaken device security.
The versions of Android being released now are vastly more secure than what Google was putting out years ago.
In fact, no one has managed to claim Google’s largest bug bounties for Android. So, the company is increasing the rewards to as much as $200,000.

Google started the bug bounty program for Android about two years ago. It works just like other bug bounties the
company has used for other products. Security researchers who can demonstrate an exploit get a cash prize,
the amount of which varies based on the severity of the hack. Then, Google gets to fix the bug and avoid future security issues.
Still, no one has submitted a working exploit for Android’s core components, even when such an exploit is worth $30,000-$50,000.
So, by increasing the reward, Google hopes it will attract more researchers and engineers to the bug bounty program.

The increases reward applies to two bounties; one for vulnerabilities in TrustZone or Verified Boot, and the other for a remote kernel exploit.
Android is based on the Linux kernel, which has given the platform great flexibility over the years. However, the Linux kernel also comes with baggage.
It has been the cause of several significant security breaches known as remote kernel exploits. An example of this would be the TowelRoot exploit,
which could be used by users to gain root on a device. Of course, hackers could also use remote kernel exploits like that to infiltrate devices and steal data.
The bounty for a new remote kernel exploit has gone up to $150,000 from $30,000.
