Android has created more choice, not less | Google Blog
- yeah right. Basically we can't get paid in data so pay us a licence fee. I wonder how much Google will have to pay to keep Google Search in the device if they do that. It could also create an opportunity for Oxygen, Yandex app store, Jolla and home grown distributions by the likes of Huawei instead

Looking Through the Eyes of China’s Surveillance State - The New York Times
I tried the glasses out on a group standing about 20 feet away. For a moment, the glasses got a lock on a man’s face. But then the group noticed me, and the man blocked his face with his hand. The minicomputer failed to register a match before he moved. Seconds later, the people scattered.

Their reaction was somewhat surprising. Chinese people often report that they’re comfortable with government surveillance, and train stations are known to be closely watched

Arsenal and 30 ad agencies ensnared in alleged BYD fraudulent misrepresentation case | Marketing | Campaign Asia
- More than 30 domestic agencies are crying foul after Chinese electric-car brand BYD absolved itself of payment obligations for RMB1.1 billion (US$16.4 million) worth of advertising production and roadshow fees last week. The automaker claimed these agencies have been dealing with a fake employee from an "illegal" entity carrying out marketing activities on behalf of BYD by "forging" the company’s seal. BYD made statements on its website (English) and Weibo account (Mandarin), naming a "criminal suspect" Liki Li (李娟) who managed to engineer a potentially sham sponsorship deal with football club Arsenal in April 2018, and has since been detained by the Chinese public security bureau. "Hereby we reiterate that BYD was never involved in and is not responsible for any fraud issues," read one statement. "Please make sure to report to the authority responsible whenever you find yourself a victim." The 30+ agencies suffering in this legal quagmire certainly see themselves as victims, with many raising objections to how BYD is handling the case so irresponsibly. The exposé party was begun by Jingzhi PR (上海竞智广告) three days ago, posting an ugly narrative on its WeChat account of how three years of creative design and test-drive execution for BYD was suddenly invalidated in this about-turn - #thisischina

Google Maps API Becomes 'More Difficult and Expensive' | Slashdot
- so much that you can say about this. Google is Alphabet's cash cow, with changes like this it's losing developer hearts and minds. I think its part of a wider trend away from "Don't Be Evil" to "Greed is good". The economics of cloud services should surely be going in the opposite direction to Google's pricing changes?
