Image Credits: Amazon Google has received multiple DMCA notices from various copyright owners targeted at IMDb. The reporting organizations seem to carelessly scan and report without concerns to their very own business benefit. Google is keeping the situation under control, essentially protecting the copyright owners against themselves. It seems that copyright holders have been following a perplexingly confusing way to undermine the promotion of their own material, targeting IMDb with multiple DMCAs submitted to Google. The notices ask for the removal of IMDb URLs from the search engine results, and in many cases, they solely constitute the “infringing URLs” section. Google has been diligent in reviewing these notices carefully, so they have taken no action against IMDb, but the fac

Nuro is testing delivery of Kroger groceries in Arizona.Nuro For all the multi-billion-dollar investments by automakers and Silicon Valley, regulatory hand-wringing around the globe, and geeky excitement on the part of some tech mavens about driverless automobiles, the earliest adoption of full-on autonomous driving is far more likely to be in the commercial-fleet arena than in the realm of individual consumers. That's why Kroger—yes, the supermarket chain known across the country—may be closer to the leading edge of driverless-auto adoption than anybody driving a Tesla with Autopilot these days. Kroger just announced the launch of the first-ever unmanned delivery service available to the general public, with its partnership with Silicon Valley startup Nuro an

“The cost of an attack is so low these days and it gives hackers the ability to launch sophisticated targeted attacks with ease and they can attack energy plants, water distribution systems or the traffic systems of a city,” Gallego said. “We saw it last year and it will happen this year also. There could be no financial motive or political goals behind these attacks but just to create turbulence. Combined with AI, it could be scary. The criminal organisations could be states, nations or [groups] sponsored by a set of lobbies,” he said. Swiftype Custom Site Search

Check. A ton of party hats? Check. A herd of friends and family ready to countdown? Check. Let the New Year’s Eve festivities commence! At the stroke of midnight, it’s out with the old and in with the new. We’ll sing that song “Should old acquaintance be forgot,” but there’s no need to worry about our purple friends. Elephants never forget. Happy New Year’s Eve!" For the Google doodle the co

Looking back at the series of bloody car crashes that have constituted the last year in politics, the only positive I can come up with is that 2018 is very nearly over. Whether it was the cruel dishonesty of US President Donald Trump, the ineffectual floundering of Prime Minister Theresa May, or the appalling rise of anti-Semitism in Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, the past 12 months had something for every kind of masochist.And there’s little to suggest that 2019 is going to be much better. Trump knows now that his war on immigrants and a free press plays wonderfully well with his base, May retains her position as the midwife of a Brexit she believes will damage the UK, and Corbyn – who deplores all kind of racism, apparently – shows no compulsion to properly ch

In 1998, Susan Wojcicki rented her Menlo Park, California, garage to Sergey Brin and Larry Page for $US1,700 per month. The next year, she would join Google as its 16th employee. Below is a glimpse at the life of Susan Wojcicki and her rise at Google, from an early employee to YouTube’s chief exec. Most landlords only hope their renters pay on time, keep a tidy space, and don’t disturb the neighbours. But for Susan Wojcicki, her renters ended up offering up a bit more: the chance to become employee No. 16 at a young search engine startup called Google. Of course, it’s taken more than this incredible circumstance for Wojcicki to rise the ranks at Google. From expanding the company’s ad business to convincing founders Larry Page and Sergey
