Several users of the Android operating system filed a complaint against Google due to the fact that the company installed tracking feature in the Android operating system and in corporate services. By the way, a complete shutdown of determining the location turned out to be useless, because the “Corporation of good” continues to track your location right now. People who filed a complaint with the local office of consumer protection in Norway, claiming that the search giant keeps track of their movement using their services. Thus the company violates their privacy and right to freedom of movement. Although users can disable the tracking, the service itself will continue to run in the background. Most likely, even when the phone is off, Google will be able to monitor
Share to facebook Share to twitter Share to linkedin Microsoft accomplished the seemingly unthinkable this week: pulling ahead of Apple in terms of stock market valuation for the first time since 2010. Microsoft, which used to look at the world solely through Windows, has made a comeback as a growth company by betting on the cloud and transforming its business model. For Apple, which is fixated on the iPhone, there are lessons to be learned from Microsoft’s surprising comeback. Microsoft has made significant changes under CEO Satya Nadella, which brings to mind one of my favorite sayings: “If you want to do change management, you have to change the management.” Nadella, who took over from Steve Ballmer in 2014, has shifted the comp
Looking for news you can trust?Subscribe to our free newsletters. This map from the Washington Post made the gleeful rounds of liberal Twitter yesterday: What’s not to like? It shows that all those supposedly manly Southern men aren’t so manly after all. In fact, they’re desperately searching Google for ways to make themselves more manly, and it’s hard for us lefties not to get a chuckle out of that. To make it even better, the accompanying study also showed that all these insecure men voted for Donald Trump in large numbers. But it seemed sort of dumb to me and I had no plans to write about it: the fact that Southern men voted for Trump in large numbers is hardly news, after all. But then, thanks to the Evil Dex, I had lots of time on my hand and
I woke up this morning to probably close to a hundred messages across email, social media and other channels that Search Engine Land is not currently in the Google Index. People want to know why. Update: I do know why now, it was a mistake - Google thought the site was hacked, it was not. See below for what I wrote earlier with a link to more details. I honestly do not know why. I do not have access to the code base or Google Search Console access. I have no information at this point. I totally suspect it will make for a good story on Search Engine Land when we do get all the details. But as of now, I know as much as everyone else.I figured it would be easier to post this here for now then respond to every single message I have received about this situation. There are a lot o...
2.0 was leaked online on November 29. On Wednesday, the Madras High Court directed 37 internet service providers to block more than 12,000 websites, including 2,000 suspected sites of Tamilrockers. However, hours after Rajinikanth-starrer 2.0 released in theatres on Thursday, it was available on Tamilrockers. So why is it so difficult to block the torrent site? A senior police official in the cyber crime department said his attempts to take down Tamilrockers and their proxy servers in the past were mostly futile for many reasons. “Tamilrockers is not run by a single individual or a single entity, it is a scattered group of people, who may be anonymous to each other, possibly working abroad. In multiple occasions during some blockbuster movie leaks in the past, we

Furious Brisbane shoppers have lashed Wilson Parking after they were handed fines for a rule they say the company failed to tell them.The changes implemented by Wilson Parking now requires shoppers at Kelvin Grove Urban Village to enter in their car’s registration and pre-pay at the machine.The shopping centre still offers two hours free parking but even drivers staying less than that are still required to register their car at the pay station.Since the rule kicked in, dozens of shoppers attending the Musk Ave car park have been hit with $65 fines leading to a huge backlash online.“What a ridiculous system!

Book of the Week: Danyl Mclauchlan reviews a brilliant new biography of Friedrich Nietzsche, who declared, “I am not a man. I am dynamite!”It ended in Turin, on January 3, 1889 when Friedrich Nietzsche shuffled into the Piazza Carlo Alberta. Nietzsche was a sad, solitary figure; he spent his days in Turin’s bookshops, reading but not buying the books, or roaming the streets dressed in worn, shabby clothes, his eyes – nearly blind but agonisingly sensitive to light – hidden behind thick green-lensed sunglasses, a green visor jutting out from his head like a beak. At the edge of the Piazza he created a disturbance: no one knows what happened: a story circulating after his death claims he saw a cart horse being flogged, ran to it, threw his arms around the animal to protect it

But online photo collections kept growing â where else would we go? Newer, more credible services hustled for users. Storage practices didnât get revised, they accumulated: Photos lived on old discs and drives, moving from site to site, cloud to cloud, from Photobucket to Flickr to Facebook and back, or maybe just waiting on ever-larger SD cards. (Those die, too.)âThe thing Iâve come across with my clients is not necessarily âHow do I store them?â but âHow do I move them to the newest application?ââ said Kaitlyn Ackron, a 17-year-old student in Rio Rancho, N.M., who provides tech support for seniors through an organization called Teeniors. They worry about accidentally deleting photos from their phones, said Ms. Ackron, who shows them the âRecently Deletedâ folder.
