Facebook abused dominant position, says German watchdog

NewsWorld365 - January 4, 2018

  Germany’s competition watchdog has found that Facebook abused its dominant market position, challenging the US social network’s model of monetising the personal data of its 2 billion users worldwide through targeted advertising. Presenting preliminary findings of its 20-month-old probe, the Federal Cartel Office said Facebook held a dominant position among social networks – a characterisation the company dismissed as ‘inaccurate’. The case is being closely watched in Germany, where concerns over data privacy are strong due to a history of state surveillance under Nazi and Communist rule. Facebook has been running an ad campaign to try to allay those […]

Can Eating Fish Make Kids Smarter?

fish

Myth has it that fish is brain food — but it just might be more than myth, a new study suggests. Kids who ate fish at least once a week had intelligence quotients, or IQs, that were nearly 5 points higher than the IQs for kids who ate less fish or none at all, the study found. Fish eaters also slept better. Though the study was done among Chinese children, American kids are just as likely to benefit from fish, according to lead researcher Jianghong Liu, an associate professor of nursing at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in […]

Social media giant Twitter has said it will open an office in Hong Kong in the first quarter of 2015. The messaging service has been banned from operating in China since 2009 over fears that it could be used to organise protests against the government. However, Twitter said it wanted to tap into the next phase of its growth in the Asian region by expanding in Greater China. The office will house sales staff and joins the likes of Google and Facebook. “Our upcoming Hong Kong office in the first quarter will enable us to pursue strategic opportunities in Greater […]

Apple releases U2 album removal tool

Apple has released a tool to remove U2’s new album from its customers’ iTunes accounts six days after giving away the music for free. Some users had complained about the fact that Songs of Innocence had automatically been downloaded to their devices without their permission. It had not been immediately obvious to many of the account holders how to delete the tracks. The US tech firm is now providing a one-click removal button. “Some customers asked for the ability to delete ‘Songs of Innocence’ from their library, so we set up itunes.com/soi-remove to let them easily do so. Any customer that needs […]

iPhones allow extraction of deep personal data

   Personal data including text messages, contact lists and photos can be extracted from iPhones through previously unpublicized techniques by Apple Inc employees, the company acknowledged this week. The same techniques to circumvent backup encryption could be used by law enforcement or others with access to the “trusted” computers to which the devices have been connected, according to the security expert who prompted Apple’s admission. In a conference presentation this week, researcher Jonathan Zdziarski showed how the services take a surprising amount of data for what Apple now says are diagnostic services meant to help engineers. Users are not notified that the services are […]

  Apple Inc’s iPad is losing steam just four years after its release, but an alliance with International Business Machines Corp could rejuvenate a flagging product by entering into a largely untapped corporate market. Apple shipped 13.2 million iPads in the June quarter, 8 percent fewer than a year earlier and lagging Wall Street’s forecast for 14 million or more. Sales of the device, which accounted for 15 percent of revenue, fell short of Wall Street’s expectations for the second quarter in a row. Apple helped create the tablet market in 2010 with its first iPad. But growth has plummeted from 2012, […]

Microsoft to slash 18,000 jobs in deepest cuts in tech giant’s history

Microsoft is embarking on the deepest cuts to its workforce in its 39 year history, axing 18,000 jobs over the next year, as it absorbs its newly acquired Nokia phone business and takes out layers of management. The new boss of the US company is cutting one in seven of the tech giant’s 127,000 global workforce as it attempts to integrate the Finnish business it acquired in April for $7.2bn. Satya Nadella, the firm’s chief executive for just five months, first hinted at job cuts last week when he outlined plans for a leaner business. That led to speculation about sweeping […]

Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, the world’s largest contract manufacturer of electronic goods, will begin mass production of Apple Inc’s next-generation iPhone this month, local media reported Friday. Mass production of a 4.7-inch successor to the wildly popular iPhone 5 series of smartphones will begin during the third week of July, Taiwan’s Economic Daily News said, without citing sources. Production of a 5.5-inch version will begin during the second week of August, it said. A separate report issued Thursday by a China state-run news service said Hon Hai is planning to hire 100,000 workers at its mainland facilities to meet […]

Google Inc (GOOGL.O) (GOOG.O), whose Androidsoftware reigns as the world’s dominant smartphone operating system, will step up efforts to make inroads into cars, televisions and other devices at its annual developer conference this week, sources familiar with the matter said. The Internet company is racing against rivals such as Apple Inc (AAPL.O), SamsungElectronics Co (005930.KS) and other companies to extend its business into a broadening field of Internet-connected devices. “It’s a land grab,” said Sameet Sinha, an analyst with investment bank B. Riley & Co. “The person who gets a platform which controls the devices could be the dominant operating system, not of just devices, […]

US indicts Chinese military officers for cyber spying

indict

Every nation spies, but China, as a matter of state policy, collects information and passes it on to state enterprises to help them compete in the international marketplace. Washington has continually complained but gotten nowhere with Beijing. Exasperated, Holder on Monday said “enough is enough.” Hence the criminal charges. China’s cyber thefts are no ordinary crime. Estimates of annual loss range from $20 billion to more than $300 billion, with best guesses around $110 billion. If China did not engage in this thievery it’s estimated that there could be 2.1 million more Americans employed each year. “It’s the greatest transfer of wealth in […]
