La spécificité des RG, le maillage du territoire, a été amoindrie. Or les RG s’occupaient déjà beaucoup moins des journalistes et des syndicalistes, et ils étaient à l’écoute des quartiers à problèmes. C’est une perte.
En outre, on a voulu miser sur le renseignement technologique, à l’américaine, le « big data » et toutes ces choses-là. Or ce n’est pas très efficace. Il suffit de voir aux États-Unis, les déclarations du général Alexander, patron de la NSA, en 2013, sur l’efficacité très relative des milliards dépensés dans la technologie après le 11 septembre 2001.

With less than 24 hours before the release of the album on Friday, the major digital music services were informed that “25” would not be available for streaming, according to three people with direct knowledge of the plans. A spokesman for Adele declined to comment.

You’re also going to start seeing an option to “stream” some apps you don’t have installed, right from Google Search, provided you’re on good Wifi. For example, with one tap on a “Stream” button next to the HotelTonight app result, you’ll get a streamed version of the app, so that you can quickly and easily find what you need, and even complete a booking, just as if you were in the app itself. And if you like what you see, installing it is just a click away. This uses a new cloud-based technology that we’re currently experimenting with.

Il y a des équipes dédiées qui agissent 24 heures sur 24 pour faire tomber ces contenus : le terrorisme n’a pas sa place sur Facebook. Mais on regarde le contexte et pas seulement la vidéo : s’il s’agit de dénoncer, on considère au contraire que ces messages sont pédagogiques et on le garde, sauf si le gouvernement le demande.

Traditional brick-and-mortar retail stores have many disadvantages when competing against online counterparts. Online stores are always open and are available anywhere, have “endless aisles” and can use digital tools to personalize offers to customer preferences. Nevertheless, physical stores do offer customers a number of significant benefits, including immediacy, personal service, and the ability to offer a truly immersive experience.
Recently, however, leading physical stores have discovered that they can also harness the power of powerful digital marketing tools and integrate them directly into the in-store experience. New technology promises to allow retailers to beat online players at their own game, transforming the customer experience and dramatically improving their positioning.

Following the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday night, the majority of the world recoiled in horror. But individuals active within Gamergate – either a movement dedicated to harassing women and what the group calls Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) in the games industry and/or campaigning for better transparency and ethical standards within the media, depending on who you ask – had a different reaction. They used this tragedy to present a Gamergate critic, Canadian journalist Veerender Jubbal, as one of the Paris terrorists.

After raising £2,335,119 ($3.6 million) from more than 12,000 backers, Torquing Group informed backers today (Nov. 18) that it is shutting down its project to manufacture a tiny drone called Zano that would’ve allowed people to take selfies from the air. The troubled company had been plagued with delays after missing its original ship date of June 2015. Last week, CEO Ivan Reedman resigned from the company, citing “personal health issues and irreconcilable differences.”

Les chances que vous mourriez en glissant dans votre salle de bain sont un millier de fois plus grandes que celles de mourir à cause du terrorisme.

The case for expanded surveillance of communications, however, is complicated by an analysis of recent terrorist attacks. The Intercept has reviewed 10 high-profile jihadi attacks carried out in Western countries between 2013 and 2015 (see below), and in each case some or all of the perpetrators were already known to the authorities before they executed their plot. In other words, most of the terrorists involved were not ghost operatives who sprang from nowhere to commit their crimes.
