“À quelques semaines des fêtes de fin d’année, et alors que les Français préparent activement leurs courses de Noël avec en ligne de mire le Black Friday ce vendredi, le couperet est tombé. Selon nos informations, après plus d’un an d’enquête et des mois de relance avec la plate-forme de vente en ligne, la Direction générale de la concurrence, de la consommation et de la répression des fraudes (DGCCRF) ordonne à partir de ce mercredi matin de déréférencer le site américain Wish. […] Une deuxième procédure, cette fois judiciaire, est en effet en cours d’instruction depuis un an pour « pratiques commerciales trompeuses ». La peine pourrait être lourde pour Wish : deux ans de prison et une amende allant jusqu’à 10 % du chiffre d’affaires.”

Squid Game Cryptocurrency Scammers Make Off With $2.1 Million

The price of SQUID cryptocurrency plunging to $

“If you’re going to buy cryptocurrency, the most important thing to look out for isn’t necessarily the price. First, figure out whether you can sell the coin after you bought it. If you can’t sell—like the people who invested in SQUID discovered they can’t—it doesn’t matter how high the price goes, just as it doesn’t matter how large of a number someone writes on Monopoly bills. Cryptocurrency is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. And if the rules say you can’t even sell, you’ve just been scammed. Sorry, folks.”

Amazon copied products and rigged search results, documents show

http://www.beaude.net/no-flux/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Amazon.in1_.jpg

“Thousands of pages of internal Amazon documents examined by Reuters – including emails, strategy papers and business plans – show the company ran a systematic campaign of creating knockoffs and manipulating search results to boost its own product lines in India, one of the company’s largest growth markets. The documents reveal how Amazon’s private-brands team in India secretly exploited internal data from Amazon.in to copy products sold by other companies, and then offered them on its platform. The employees also stoked sales of Amazon private-brand products by rigging Amazon’s search results so that the company’s products would appear, as one 2016 strategy report for India put it, “in the first 2 or three … search results” when customers were shopping on Amazon.in.”

L’histoire de l’entreprise taïwanaise TSMC est celle de la mondialisation… et de ses limites

Devant l’usine Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) à Tainan, Taiwan, le 18 septembre 2020.

“Les tensions s’accumulent et devraient pousser les entreprises occidentales à vouloir augmenter leurs capacités de production pour réduire les risques d’approvisionnement. » Les tensions s’accumulent d’autant plus que Pékin a été placé dans une situation intenable par Washington. En interdisant à TSMC de vendre ses puces dernier cri au champion chinois du téléphone, Huawei, l’administration américaine a donné un coup d’arrêt à toute la chaîne de l’électronique chinoise, fer de lance de sa conquête mondiale. Privé de ces puces pour ses smartphones, Huawei a été éjecté violemment de cet immense marché. Car les producteurs locaux sont encore très loin en matière de technologie.La Chine importe aujourd’hui pour plus de 370 milliards de dollars de puces par an, davantage que de pétrole !”

  3. Warnings – Number of times car detects a potential forward collision

Payer pour éviter les cookies publicitaires, est-ce légal ?

Cookies Numerama

“Est-ce légal de demander aux internautes de payer une petite somme chaque mois, par exemple deux euros, pour ne pas avoir de cookies publicitaires ? C’est en quelque sorte la question qui est en train d’émerger, notamment sur les réseaux sociaux. En effet, des internautes ont été interloqués de voir qu’en se rendant sur des sites, il peut leur être demandé de payer pour échapper à la publicité ciblée.”

Google charts a course towards a more privacy-first web

Article's hero media

“Advances in aggregation, anonymization, on-device processing and other privacy-preserving technologies offer a clear path to replacing individual identifiers. In fact, our latest tests of FLoC show one way to effectively take third-party cookies out of the advertising equation and instead hide individuals within large crowds of people with common interests. Chrome intends to make FLoC-based cohorts available for public testing through origin trials with its next release this month, and we expect to begin testing FLoC-based cohorts with advertisers in Google Ads in Q2. Chrome also will offer the first iteration of new user controls in April and will expand on these controls in future releases, as more proposals reach the origin trial stage, and they receive more feedback from end users and the industry. This points to a future where there is no need to sacrifice relevant advertising and monetization in order to deliver a private and secure experience. ”
