Facebook Just Admitted It Has Lost the Battle With Apple Over Privacy

“The company won’t stop Facebook from tracking you, but it will have to ask you for permission first. Why, then, is Facebook so worried? Because it knows what everyone else already knows–that when given a choice, most people will choose to not allow Facebook to track them. If that happens to be bad for Facebook’s business, that isn’t Apple’s fault. It just means that Facebook’s business model is based on something most people would prefer it didn’t do.Except, small businesses can still advertise to their customers. They can still use all of the information Facebook knows about its users–like their gender, age, location, and interests, to show ads. If you’re a small business, none of that changes. The only person that really stands to lose seems to be Facebook. ”

“Facebook was embroiled in controversy over its data-collection practices. Mr. Cook piled on in a national television interview, saying his own company would never have found itself in such a jam. Mr. Zuckerberg shot back that Mr. Cook’s comments were “extremely glib” and “not at all aligned with the truth.”In private, Mr. Zuckerberg was even harsher. “We need to inflict pain,” he told his team, for treating the company so poorly, according to people familiar with the exchange.It wasn’t the first time—or the last—that Mr. Cook’s comments and actions would leave Mr. Zuckerberg seething and, at times, plotting to get back at Apple. The escalation of grievances erupted late last month in a rare public tit-for-tat between the two tech giants that laid bare the simmering animosity between their leaders, who exchanged jabs about privacy, app-tracking tools and, ultimately, their dueling visions about the future of the internet.”

Au Brésil, une fuite de données critiques déballe la vie de la quasi-totalité des citoyens

“C’est une des plus grosses fuites de l’histoire : gigantesque en volume, dangereuse dans le détail des données, très facile à se procurer. Difficile d’imaginer pire désastre. Mardi 19 janvier, l’entreprise de sécurité PSafe identifiait une fuite très inquiétante, puisqu’elle permettait d’accéder à plusieurs données critiques de plus de 220 millions de Brésiliens, soit plus que le total de la population (et pour cause : la base contient aussi des données de personnes décédées).”

Le forum r/wallstreetbets, qui rassemble de nombreux traders.

“Par le passé, d’autres actions ont déjà subi une hausse importante, bien que temporaire, en raison de l’attention portée par r/wallstreetbets. Mais la hausse stratosphérique de l’action GameStop a braqué de nouveaux regards sur le forum, si bien que plusieurs experts en droit se demandent, sur le site Market Watch, si ses membres n’ont pas manipulé le marché en se coordonnant et ainsi enfreint la loi.”

“Sadly, despite the team’s groundbreaking technical achievements over the last 9 years — doing many things previously thought impossible, like precisely navigating balloons in the stratosphere, creating a mesh network in the sky, or developing balloons that can withstand the harsh conditions of the stratosphere for more than a year — the road to commercial viability has proven much longer and riskier than hoped. So we’ve made the difficult decision to close down Loon. In the coming months, we’ll begin winding down operations and it will no longer be an Other Bet within Alphabet.”
