Netflix missed its Q1 subscriber numbers and its stock is dropping – Recode

A quick look at Netflix’s Q1 results: It added 1.42 million streaming subscribers in the U.S., and another 3.53 million in the rest of the world.Netflix had told Wall Street to expect 1.5 million domestic subs and another 3.7 million internationally.The company also told investors that it would add 600,000 domestic subs in Q2 and another 2.6 million outside the U.S. Wall Street had expected 364,000 and 2 million respectively.Notice how we haven’t told you about Reed Hastings’ revenue and earnings numbers? That’s because Netflix trades almost entirely on its subscriber story, and investors are increasingly fixated on its international numbers, as it tries to stream video in nearly every country in the world except for China.

Slack, an Upstart in Messaging, Now Faces Giant Tech Rivals – The New York Times

Slack, an Upstart in Messaging, Now Faces Giant Tech Rivals – The New York Times

SAN FRANCISCO — Slack is the classic Silicon Valley accidental success. Born three years ago, with roots in a failed video game, the messaging software is now used by five million people.The company behind it, Slack Technologies, found success by combining something that Silicon Valley fetishizes — rich data on how people use a product — with something it often overlooks: How do people actually feel while using it?This combination produced an unlikely hit that, when it became available in 2014, grew mostly by word of mouth, which is unusual for corporate software. Last year, the privately held company was valued at nearly $4 billion.Now Slack faces a significant new challenge. It has become big enough to draw a competitive response from giants like Microsoft, but not big enough to have the roster of large corporate clients it needs to compete with the giants.

What you’re really agreeing to when you accept your smart TV’s privacy policy – The Washington Post

Let’s be honest here — most of us don’t read the privacy policies for smart televisions. And even if we try to, it’s often difficult to read them, particularly on a television screen. Some televisions even display the massive policies five lines at a time. Reaction to recent controversies involving Vizio and Samsung televisions, for example, have highlighted that while people understand that their televisions have microphones, cameras and tracking software, they don’t fully understand how much of this information they’ve actually agreed to share with companies.So we asked a few legal experts who specialize in privacy — Christopher Dore of the Chicago-based law firm Edelson, Danielle Citron of the University of Maryland, William McGeveran of the University of Minnesota and Bradley Shear of Maryland-based Shear Law — to explain what we’re really getting into when we hit the “I agree” button.

Nya betaversioner från Apple

Det är måndag och det betyder att Apple släpper nya betaversioner. Apple har nu släppt den tredje betaversionen av macOS 10.12.5, watchOS 3.2.2, tvOS 10.2.1 och  iOS 10.3.2 till utvecklare.

Den här uppdateringen handlar företrädesvis om buggfixar och korrigeringar. Räkna också med att tisdag eller onsdag så kommer de har versionerna att släppas även till publika betatestare.

The finished version of macOS 10.12.4 was also released on March 27 and brought minor enhancements, like Night Shift for the Mac, new PDFKit APIs, and more options for iCloud Analytics. It also expanded internet recovery options, but introduced a bug affecting USB audio controller chips for some users that is still not rectified.

As with all the previous betas, the tvOS beta must be installed through a USB-C cable connecting the device to iTunes. The watchOS beta is installed with the watch on the charger, and in range of the paired iPhone. Registered developers can download the beta over-the-air from a device in the beta program already, or from the Developer’s portal.

The Moderators

 

Deras jobb är att plöja igenom informationsflöden, läsa och städa så att sociala medier inte tas över av spammare och andra som sprider skräp.

Det här är en film om moderatorerna, hur de utbildas och hur de jobbar. Dag efter dag, timme efter timme, dygnet runt.

 

In an office in India, a cadre of Internet moderators ensures that social media sites are not taken over by bots, scammers, and pornographers. The Moderators shows the humans behind content moderation, taking viewers into the training process that workers go through in order to become social media’s monitors.
