It only took four years and thousands of complaints but ICANN finally kills off rogue Indian domain registrar
Remember the WCIT Treaty from 2012? Expect a repeat on any attempt to hand over internet governance to the ITU or UN, and you can't sue them into compliance. Good luck fining them into compliance if they require something like WHOIS or other problematic policies.
Splinter net here we come.
Of course there is stuff like this
Re: Couldn't even share this article
Thank the Australian government, Facebook told them what would happen and sure enough it did. They managed to turn a duopoly in to a monopoly, and that's about what I'd expect from a conservative government.
Though we'll see how long Google wants to play, probably as long they can stay ahead this law with preemptive agreements or until they get tired of paying Murdoch for his trash.
Now this is Epic: Fortnite maker takes Apple fight to the European Commission and... er... Bismarck, North Dakota
All this just so kids can resume begging for money to pay for skins and idiotic dances. With any luck when this resolves Fortnite will be dead and Tencent will be on the U.S blacklist.
I guess I am an outlier, I haven't bought an app in years....mostly cause they are usually sh*t and mobile games are a sad joke.
"Where the industry is headed"
Where those in the industry that want to sell software as a service and cloud storage are headed.
I'll stick to old versions or goto Open Office before I use this.
Drag Autonomy founder's 'fraudulent guns' and 'grasping claws' to the US for a criminal trial, thunders barrister
Re: They're a weird mob.
The sport is run by a corporation, Americans in general have no say in what they decide to call the events. Though if a country is the only one that plays a sport, that would make a winner effectively world champion. The U.S is perhaps the biggest but is not the only country that plays baseball professionally.
Re: Not an option.
They could, but if previous cases are anything to go by, transferring evidence is apparently just too much work. The UK was going to let Bill Barr release two ISIS terrorist to the Iraqis where they would be hung after a very brief hearing. That is unless Barr promised not to seek the death penalty so the UK could hand over evidence. We can blow them up and shoot them, just not execute them......
Why would they after the forum bar. Declining to prosecute let alone extradote hackers and one digital peeping tom doesn't exactly make for a great incentive to help. Won't be surprised if Mr. Lynch is suddenly suicidal, autistic, or suffering Alzheimer's.
I don't think Biden is going to be willing to Boris any favors after the latter ran his mouth.
War on Section 230 begins in earnest as Dem senators look to limit legal immunity for social networks, websites etc
I am not worried about major companies (Google, Facebook, and Twitter have plenty of money and lawyers), I am worried about it's effect on everyone else, and Congress doesn't have a good track record with unintended consequences. Warner's Q&A on this bill doesn't give me much hope the provisions have been carefully considered.
The lies don't help
" Q: What is the scope of the carve-out for paid content? Does it cover anything beyond paid advertisements?
A: The SAFE TECH Act makes clear that Section 230 immunity does not apply to any paid content. This would include advertisements as well as things like marketplace listings."
Except where it says, "except to the extent the provider or user has accepted payment to make the speech available...". Conditioning immunity on whether service provider receiving payment.
This is going to be an even bigger (much bigger) mess than FOSTA.
"Section (c)(1) of the current law, removes the protections entirely if money exchanges hands, and then changes it from an immunity to merely "an affirmative defense."
So basically a lawyers heckler veto for most of the internet or defending lots of expensive lawsuits. Free speech on the internet was nice while it lasted, if this passes don't expect to say anything even remotely controversial, and forget about things like #MeToo etc.
Synology to enforce use of validated disks in enterprise NAS boxes. And guess what? Only its own disks exceed 4TB
Apple slapped with €60m lawsuit from Italian consumer rights org for slowing down CPUs in old iPhones
I guess they'd rather charge their battery more often and accelerate the decline. The solution is just to replace the battery. Also, I don't think you can even update iOS on an iPhone 6S anymore. Seem odd to point out the battery as planned obsolescence when you can't even update it and apps will eventually end support.
Companies aren't going support products forever and even if they tried the devices naturally degrade from use. Caps wear out, thermal cycling takes it's toll etc.

Trump's gone quiet, Parler nuked, Twitter protest never happened: There's an eerie calm – but at what cost?
Re: AWS now liable?
Yeah, services (and not just AWS) will drop you if you become a liability for them. Cloudflare dropped 8chan after links to the El Paso and Christchurch shooters, Visa and Mastercard dropped PornHub over illegal content.
You can use AWS etc just don't be seen as providing a safe space for repugnant content and violent conspiracy, which is what Parler did.
Parler games: Social network for internet rejects sues Amazon Web Services for pulling plug on hosting
Facebook appeals ruling that it stole tech. So, Italian judge issues new judgment: Pay 10 times the original fine
If this is the kind of app Facebook needs to copy I think they have bigger problems than any judgments, adding discount codes to the nearby businesses is at best a minor iteration on what map apps already do. With Facebooks size it's not like they need to be first to market, just adding as feature to their existing app would probably kill it.
