(Reuters) – Alphabet Inc’s Google is developing technology that media companies could use to create stories similar to those found on Snapchat’s “Discover” platform, a person familiar with the plans said on Friday.Google’s project, dubbed “Stamp,” is in the early stages of testing with publishers, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity.Tech firms including Google, Snapchat’s owner Snap Inc and Facebook Inc are racing to develop publishing tools for media companies, hoping to fill their own apps with news, entertainment, sports and other content.The challenge for such tools is making them faster and easier to use than a web browser, while creating an interesting experience for users.

Defending Tor – gateway to the dark web – BBC News

When Roger Dingledine talks about the dark web, he waves his hands in the air – as if not quite convinced of its existence.I give him the benefit of the doubt – his arguably blasé attitude, I think, is a symptom of being consistently called upon to defend his creation.He is the co-creator of Tor, the most popular software available for gaining access to the part of the internet unreachable using a conventional browser – including what is often referred to as the dark or underground web.To some, Tor is a menace: a (largely) impenetrable system that enables some of the most depraved crimes to take place on the internet.

Så slipper Google undan över 1 miljard i svensk skatt – Breakit

Jätten Googles årsredovisning för dess svenska verksamhet har precis blivit offentlig på Bolagsverket och vi på Breakit har självklart kastat oss över handlingarna. Men det är inte helt enkelt att tolka räkenskaperna för den som vill få en uppfattning om hur stor verksamhet Google faktiskt har i Sverige.Enligt årsredovisningen i Google Sweden AB var omsättningen i fjol 630 miljoner kronor – en ökning med 20 procent jämfört med 2015. Resultatet efter finansiella poster hamnade på 51 miljoner kronor vilket var nästan 18 procent bättre än året innan.Men de här siffrorna säger egentligen ingenting om hur Googles svenska verksamhet verkligen gick 2016.

HBO Hack Is Reportedly 7 Times Larger Than Catastrophic Sony Attack | HuffPost

When news of the HBO hack first surfaced earlier this week, much of the noise surrounded the leak of the script of the upcoming episode of “Game of Thrones.”But two new stories detail just how potentially consequential the large-scale hack really could be. Tatiana Siegel, a senior film writer at the entertainment outlet, reports that the hackers obtained “multiple points of entry” into the company’s data, which would seem to show a high level of sophistication, and have yet to release a ransom note, making the intention of the hack unclear.
