As a farewell gift on his trip to retirement, noted tipster @evleaks has one more leak left to share: The Moto X+1 for Verizon. The images match up with earlier rumors and whispers of a larger Motorola handset, very likely with a higher resolution screen than the 720p display found on last year’s Moto X. Aside from the overall size bump, the speaker grilles are larger and there appear to be two of them, suggesting the possibility of stereo front-facing speakers. In keeping with what helped make the Moto X a popular phone, the successor model looks to be running a mainly stock, skin-less version of Android.

The anonymity network Tor has always enjoyed a paradoxical relationship with the U.S. authorities – part-funded by the State Department and previously the military; targeted by the NSA – but this is something else. Tor operations chief Andrew Lewman said in a BBC interview published Friday, that people in both the NSA and the U.K.’s GCHQ have tipped off the Tor team when those spy agencies found flaws in its software. That lets the team fix those vulnerabilities quickly, where they might otherwise have gone undiscovered. Lewman suggested this happened on a “probably monthly” basis, though this is all a “hunch” based on the expertise on display – Tor takes anonymous bug reports.
