Opinion | Internet Hacking Is About to Get Much Worse - The New York Times
These are problems that the market will not fix. Buyers can't differentiate between secure and insecure products, so sellers prefer to spend their money on features that buyers can see. The complexity of the internet and of our supply chains make it difficult to trace a particular vulnerability to a corresponding harm. The courts have traditionally not held software manufacturers liable for vulnerabilities. And, for most companies, it has generally been good business to skimp on security, rather than sell a product that costs more, does less, and is on the market a year later.

Jeffrey Katzenberg And Meg Whitman Unveil Name Of 25-35 NewTV Venture: Quibi, short for Quick Bites
Media mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg and veteran tech executive Meg Whitman used the prominent platform of Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit to announce the name of their new mobile video startup and drop the names of four high-profile Hollywood players who will create content for the subscription service.

Filmmakers Sam Raimi, Guillermo del Toro and Antoine Fuqua and noted producer Jason Blum will all create shows for the new mobile subscription service, which launches next year. 

“These people are so excited about doing something new. They want to be the pioneers. They want to be able to show the path in doing this,” said Katzenberg. “We are going to do be able to do extraordinary storytelling.”

Whitman announced the service will be called Quibi, short for quick bites of content.

“Jeffrey can’t stop saying the name Quibi,” Whitman said. “I think that will be a fun name for us.”

Microsoft vows to protect Linux from future patent wars by joining the Open Invention Network – GeekWire
The Open Invention Network was created by IBM, Red Hat, and others back in 2005 as a patent pool in which members agreed to cross-license their patents to each other in exchange for agreeing not to assert those patents against companies working on Linux-based projects. Since then, Oracle, Google, and hundreds of others have joined to create a massive pool of patents that allow members to defend themselves against patent attacks from non-members.

Microsoft’s decision to join the group is yet another sign that the company, which at one point was making more money shaking down Android device makers than from its own mobile strategy, has reversed itself when it comes to open-source technology.

The breach that killed Google+ wasn’t a breach at all - The Verge
Part of the disconnect comes from the fact that, legally, Google is in the clear. There are lots of laws about reporting breaches — primarily the GDPR but also a string of state-level bills — but by that standard, what happened to Google+ wasn’t technically a breach. Those laws are concerned with unauthorized access to user information, codifying the basic idea that if someone steals your credit card or phone number, you have a right to know about it. But Google just found that data was available to developers, not that any data was actually taken. With no clear data stolen, Google had no legal reporting requirements. As far as the lawyers were concerned, it wasn’t a breach, and quietly fixing the problem was good enough.

Yossi Appleboum Disagrees with How Bloomberg is Positioning His Research Against Supermicro
We have a problem. The problem is the hardware supply chain. All of us are dealing with what happened to Supermicro, and whether Amazon knew or did not know. That is not the main issue for me. The main issue is that we have a problem. It is global. This is why I think Supermicro is suffering from the big players. I am talking about the really big players who know that they have the same problem, and they are kind of using the story right now to throw Supermicro under the bus instead of coming out and saying that it is a global problem, let’s fix it and find a solution.

DoNotPay App Lets You 'Sue Anyone By Pressing a Button'
The app works by having a bot ask the user a few basic questions about their legal issue. The bot then uses the answers to classify the case into one of 15 different legal areas, such as breach of contract or negligence. After that, Do Not Pay draws up documents specific to that legal area, and fills in the specific details. Just print it out, mail it to the courthouse, and violá—you’re a plaintiff. And if you have to show up to court in person, Do Not Pay even creates a script for the plaintiff to read out loud in court.

Android Creator Is Said to Build AI Phone That Texts for You - Bloomberg
The design of the new mobile device isn’t like a standard smartphone. It would have a small screen and require users to interact mainly using voice commands, in concert with Essential’s artificial-intelligence software. The idea is for the product to book appointments or respond to emails and text messages on its own, according to the people familiar with the plans. Users would also be able to make phone calls from the planned device.

Leaked Transcript of Private Meeting Contradicts Google’s Official Story on China
Gomes’s remarks to staff, which can be read in full below, highlight the stark contrast between Google’s public and private statements about Dragonfly. The secretive project has been underway since spring 2017 — and has involved about 300 employees, the majority of whom have worked full-time on the plan. It was far beyond an “exploration,” and the plan to launch it was well-developed, as some of Google’s own employees have themselves highlighted in recent weeks, despite the company’s efforts to suppress such information.

This is the Google Pixel 3 XL - Android Authority
From the time I had with the device, I was quite surprised by the build quality. The device is polycarbonate, probably to allow for wireless charging, but it felt just as good if not better than the white Pixel 2 XL. (Update: On closer examination, we think the device’s back is actually made of glass, with a texture applied). While I couldn’t confirm the screen resolution, I’m certain it must have been QHD. The display looked miles better than the previous OLED on the Pixel 2XL, and it’s obvious Google has put a lot of time into the small parts of the device.

Security researcher cited in Bloomberg's China spy chip investigation casts doubt on story's veracity
"Spreading hardware fear, uncertainty and doubt is entirely in my financial gain, but it doesn't make sense because there are so many easier ways to do this," Fitzpatrick said, referring to the purported hardware implant. "There are so many easier hardware ways, there are software, there are firmware approaches. There approach you are describing is not scalable. It's not logical. It's not how I would do it. Or how anyone I know would do it."
