Why Facebook's 2011 Promises Haven't Protected Users


MARK ZUCKERBERG’S COMMENTS during this week’s congressional hearings could cost him.
Over 10 hours of questioning about Facebook’s privacy practices on Tuesday and Wednesday, Zuckerberg fielded numerous questions about one of the few government enforcement actions against his company: a 2011 consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission to settle allegations that Facebook made privacy promises it did not keep, including sharing data with other apps without informing users.

Netflix stannar hemma

Netflix kommer inte att delta vid årets Cannesfestival och har dragit tillbaka sina fyra tänkta festivalbidrag.

– We want our films to be on fair ground with every other filmmaker. There’s a risk in us going in this way and having our films and filmmakers treated disrespectfully at the festival. They’ve set the tone. I don’t think it would be good for us to be there.

säger Netflix Ted Sarandos i en kommentar till amerikanska Variety.

Regler

Festivalen har nyligen skarpt sina regler och kommer i fortsättningen inte att prisbelöna filmer som inte går upp på vanliga biografer.

 

Mark Zuckerberg Is Either Ignorant or Deliberately Misleading Congress

AFTER WATCHING the Facebook founder and CEO’s 48-hour trip to Capitol Hill, there are two possible conclusions: either Mark Zuckerberg deliberately misled Congress, or Mark Zuckerberg knows very little about his own company. Both are bad.

Again and again, before both Senate and House committees, Zuckerberg pleaded ignorance about the company he created and has controlled for 14 years. Zuckerberg wasn’t dodging questions about obscure corners of the company or corporate minutiae, but the most plainly fundamental aspects of Facebook’s business and privacy policies

Billy Mitchell blir av med alla sina rekord

Billy Mitchell blir av med alla sina rekord

Billy Mitchell har kallats Kungen av Donkey Kong och han har fram till nu innehaft en rad rekord i spelet. Rekord som han nu blir av med och han stängs dessutom av på livstid från Twin Galaxies för fusk.

Billy Mitchell är en av de mest kända spelarna och han har tre rekordnoteringar i Twin Galaxies listor.

Fusk

Twin Galaxies har utrett både Billy Mitchells rekord och andra gamla spelrekord efter anklagelser om fusk.

“Twin Galaxies administrative staff has unanimously decided to remove all of Billy Mitchell’s scores as well as ban him from participating in our competitive leaderboards.. We have notified the Guinness World Records of our decision.”

Billy Mitchell har skickat in sina rekord och hävdat att han spelat på en Donkey Kong arkadmaskin men sedan har det visat sig att det istället har handlat om mjukvara, en emulgerad version av spelet.
