Google Chrome marks 3,000 Dutch sites ‘unsafe’: report

From Tuesday web browser Google Chrome marked 3 thousand Dutch sites as 'unsafe'. When visiting one of these sites, a warning will appear stating that the connection is unsafe and that sites may try to steal your data, according to a study by Open State Foundation, NU.nl reports. These unsafe sites include the websites of the municipalities of Zutphen and Heemskerk, as well as Ekoplaza and NS International's customer service site.  The problem may lie in these websites using a security certificate that is no longer supported by Google. This is the case with educational institution LOI, which used a security certificate from Symantec. Google no longer approves certificates from this company after Symantec was caught creating fake certificates in 2015.  The affected we

Is Silicon Valley Losing Its Luster?

Earlier this year, a bus full of top venture capitalists pulled into Flint, Michigan. Flint doesn’t come to mind when you think about “tech.” But with cheap real estate and reviving downtowns, Flint and other Rust Belt cities attracted the VCs. They looked for the next home of innovation beyond California. In fact, tech royalty is no longer just looking. The likes of Google, Tesla and Amazon have already moved part of their business elsewhere. All of this shows that Silicon Valley may be losing its status as the world’s technology hub. I spoke with my contact Eric on the ground in Silicon Valley. This article is a summary of our conversation about tech firms leaving the area. Let’s begin with reasons behind this migration. Taxes and Real Estate  California has an 8.84% corpo

Left-leaning organizations are dominating political ads on Facebook and Twitter while rightwing advertisers are outspending liberal groups on Google, according to new research. Computer scientists at the New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering analyzed more than 884,000 recent political ads on the three social media sites. They found that Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again political action committee had the largest number of ads of any candidate while a Republican group called the Senate Leadership Fund spent the most on ads. Meanwhile, Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic Senate candidate fighting to unseat Ted Cruz in Texas, was the largest spender on Facebook and Twitter, with a focus on ads seeking small donations from outside of his state, the researchers found.

Here are five things in technology that happened this past week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them?  1 — Google+ to shut down after a cover-up of a data-exposing bug. A security bug that allowed third-party developers to access the user profile data of Google+, the search engine giant’s intended Facebook-killing-social network, was discovered and patched in March, but the company never told anyone. It turns out that 496,951 users’ full names, email addresses, birth dates, gender, profile photos, places lived, occupation and relationship status were potentially exposed, but Google claims it has no evidence the data was misused by the 438 apps that could have accessed it. The end result is that Google+ has become too much of a liability and the company will be shutti

Photo: Adam Clark Estes (Gizmodo)Google quietly released a new Chromecast device at its big event this week. And by quietly, I mean the company didn’t mention it at all. It was just sitting in the bottom of the bag that someone gave me when I left the venue. But hey, it’s new and it’s nice-looking. It’s just a bummer Google still hasn’t made Chromecast more useful.The new third-generation Chromecast is just like the old second-generation Chromecast except for a design upgrade and a couple of new software features. It’s also still $35.What is it?A dongle that casts videos to your TVThe hardware itself maintains the same puck-plus-HDMI-cable as before, except instead of the glossy plastic shell with the Chromecast logo carved into it, there’s now a matte case with a little Google “G” on
