Apple raises concerns over UK's draft surveillance bill - BBC News
The US-based firm has passed on its thoughts to a parliamentary committee scrutinising the legislation. It focuses on three issues: encryption, the possibility of having to hack its own products, and the precedent it would set by agreeing to comply with UK-issued warrants. The Home Secretary Theresa May said last month that the proposed powers were needed to fight crime and terror. [...] But Apple appears to be concerned that the bill's language could still be interpreted more expansively and force the creation of a so-called "backdoor" to provide the authorities with access. Apple argues that the existence of such a backdoor would risk creating a weakness that others then might exploit, making users' data less secure. [...] Overseas warrants A second area of concern relates to the issue of "extra-territoriality". Existing British legislation - and the bill - maintain that companies need to comply with warrants for information wherever they are based and wherever the data resides.

Marissa Mayer - The future of technology - YouTube
how you gonna make money, on mobile. Facebook is able to do it, enabled by data it has (targeting) and has a unrivaled competitive advantage (eats more than 70% of social media adversing budget). It's about execution now and new products - for Yahoo! Focus on Mobile, reorientate (right the ship in other direction, while still keeping tab on yahoo.com which is still sizeable business for yahoo) the company, management, team, employees. And acquisitions that help it make Yahoo! a mobile app company, relevant in the ecosystem (see Flurry acquisition, Brightroll, ... ad network/platform). Yahoos one disadvantage is that it doesn't have as much context to serve relevant - re-targeted ads to customers compared to FB, Twitter, Google. Same with Yahoo.com, its a bland/blunt page. No contextual, personal content nor advertising apart from cookies data derived. [...] "User data belongs to the end user." [...] "Portable" [...] "Standardized."

Spotify says sorry after privacy policy anger - BBC News
The new terms included access to pictures, contact phone numbers and sensor data stored on the user's smartphone. Mr Ek apologised in a blogpost for the "confusion" the changes had created. He promised an "update" to the new policy in order to clarify it but did not suggest that the terms themselves would be changed. "We should have done a better job in communicating what these policies mean and how any information you choose to share will - and will not - be used," Mr Ek wrote. He said Spotify would not access or import people's photos, contacts, sensor or GPS data without their permission.

NBCUniversal Buys Big Chunks of Vox Media and BuzzFeed | Re/code

Do You Trust Larry Page? - Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Given the fact that Alphabet née Google is the second most valuable enterprise in the world, it’s striking to consider Larry Page’s 2014 assessment of the company he co-founded with Sergey Brin: I think we’ve not succeeded as much as we’d like. [...] Even Google’s famously far-reaching mission statement, to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, is not big enough for what he now has in mind. The aim: to use the money that is spouting from its search advertising business to stake out positions in boom industries of the future, from biotech to robotics. [...] Googles non-social approach to advertising vs Facebook and everyone else ] [ ad world begins finally to shift away from TV & other legacy forms & FB/Google are main beneficiaries coming years of changing ad spend ] [ Page/Brin want 2 lead the org 2 a new frontier.

Apple is launching search engine to destroy Google — and you’re already using it | Calacanis.com
“Paid Inclusion” is basically the ads that consumers think are content, but are really ads. You can see this on your desktop by doing a search for “used iPhone.” The majority of the screen real estate is now ads! In the example above 11 of the 12 links are advertisements! [...] I could see Apple knocking 10 points off Google’s search business here in the USA in the next couple of years by simply making search an advertising-free piece of Apple’s OPERATING SYSTEM! [...] Apple is leapfrogging Google by making search something that is built into the core of your mobile phone and desktop. [ user experience, frictionless ] [...] Tim Cook is painting Google, accurately, as the evil successor to Microsoft, and Google’s management team is reinforcing this by closing ranks and destroying their partners.

Berlin’s Zeotap Raises $6.4M To Let Telcos Sell Customer Data To Mobile Advertisers | TechCrunch
[ the small print, its not free, ] Apparently, telecom operators are sitting on a huge amount of unique customer data that could provide much-needed revenue by being packaged up and sold to mobile advertisers and content providers to help them better target users. Or so says Zeotap, a startup that provides technology to enable telcos and marketers to unlock this potential treasure trove of user data. [...] for mobile advertisers the problem Zeotap is attempting to solve is the “severe shortage” of high-quality targeting data.

Germany sues e-commerce sites for sharing data with Facebook | PandoDaily
The German watchdog says that sharing information with Facebook by installing its “Like” button, especially without informing consumers about the data-sharing, violates European privacy laws. The Wall Street Journal explains: The state-backed Consumer Advice Center of North Rhine-Westphalia alleged that the transfer of user data infringed German privacy laws because visitors to the sites were not told that their personal information was being sent to Facebook. The consumer watchdog said Facebook automatically receives data on the websites’ visitors through its Like button, even if those visitors do not have a Facebook account. Facebook gets data on all visitors, whether they click on the button or not, the center said. The watchdog’s criticism comes just a few days after Belgian researchers advised consumers to install privacy software so Facebook can’t track them. Apparently the company’s threat to delay new features if regulators keep bothering it about its data practices

[...] Das Ausnutzen von Backdoors, 0-day-exploits oder der Schwächung von Verschlüsselungsstandards soll verboten werden. [...] Whistleblower, die illegale Überwachungsaktivitäten aufdecken, sollen zuverlässig und effektiv geschützt werden – inklusive der Gewährung von Asyl. [...] [...] Die NSA und ihre Partner betreiben vermutlich seit Jahren Wirtschaftsspionage unter dem Deckmantel der Terrorismusabwehr.

U.K. Government Points Finger Of Blame At Web Firms For Counter-Terror Failures | TechCrunch
Why is the U.K. government so vehemently targeting foreign Internet companies to adopt a more active counter-terror role? In part it draws attention away from the intelligence failures of the U.K.’s own security services, and by implication the U.K. government’s failures. While the imperative for this political rhetoric is of course ISIS and its success at appropriating Western social media channels to spread extremist propaganda. [... Snooper's Charter ...] [>>] [Abuse] So while the bill is clad in counter-terrorism justifications, the scope of its digital surveillance measures are intended to be applied more widely. And that type of ‘function creep’ for surveillance powers is something we’ve seen before — with measures ostensibly intended to bolster security service capabilities used to spy on journalists, for instance. And infringe on lawyer/client privilege. [...] United Nations [...] call on states to respect and protect the right to privacy in the digital age.

Algorithms Are Great and All, But They Can Also Ruin Lives | WIRED
Excerpted from The Formula: How Algorithms Solve All Our Problems—and Create More [...] Many of these problems are the result of the new roles algorithms play in law enforcement. As slashed budgets lead to increased staff cuts, automated systems have moved from simple administrative tools to become primary decision-makers. In a number of cases, the problem is about more than simply finding the right algorithm for the job, but about the problematic nature of believing that any and all tasks can be automated to begin with. [...] The mistake, Citron suggests, is that we “trust algorithms, because we think of them as objective, whereas the reality is that humans craft those algorithms and can embed in them all sorts of biases and perspectives.” To put it another way, a computer algorithm might be unbiased in its execution, but, as noted, this does not mean that there is not bias encoded within it.
