Kontaktverfolgung API in Telefonen

Apple releases final iOS 13.5 with coronavirus exposure alert support – Following an unusual beta testing cycle that began in late March and continued with renumberings in late April, Apple is today releasing the final public version of iOS 13.5, notably including features designed to limit the spread of COVID-19: exposure notifications and improved Face ID recognition of protective masks. The company is also debuting a collection of largely bug-fixing updates to its iPadOS, macOS, and tvOS operating systems.“


„The Case For Contact Tracing Apps Built On Apple And Google’s Exposure Notification System – Apple and Google have now released their update to their mobile operating systems to include a new capability for COVID-19 exposure notification. This new technology, which will support contact tracing apps developed by public health agencies, is technically impressive… Despite being a useful tool in the pandemic arsenal and adopting state-of-the-art techniques to protect privacy, the Apple-Google system has drawn criticism from several quarters. Privacy advocates are dreaming up ways the system could be abused. Anti-tech campaigners are decrying ‚tech solutionism.‘ None of these critiques stands up to scrutiny.“


„Vorerst soll das Bluetooth-Kontaktprotokoll nur durch Installation einer staatlichen Warn-App aktiviert werden. … Laut Apple wird die Kontaktmitteilungen-API in 22 Ländern eingeführt, dazu dürfte auch Deutschland zählen. … Zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt wollen Apple und Google die Funktion tiefer in ihre Betriebssysteme integrieren, dann soll die Kontaktverfolgung nach einem Opt-in gleich möglich sein, ohne dafür erst eine App laden zu müssen. Auf dem iPad scheint Apple auf die neue Schnittstelle zu verzichten.


„Pro Land soll nur eine einzige App auf die Schnittstellen zugreifen können. In Deutschland wird diese App von der Deutschen Telekom und dem Software-Konzern SAP entwickelt. Es dürften noch einige Wochen vergehen, bis sie einsatzbereit ist.“


„Die Corona-Warn-App ist eine App, die hilft, Infektionsketten des SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 Auslöser) in Deutschland nachzuverfolgen und zu unterbrechen. Die App basiert auf Technologien mit einem dezentralisierten Ansatz und informiert Personen, wenn sie mit einer infizierten Person in Kontakt standen. Transparenz ist von entscheidender Bedeutung, um die Bevölkerung zu schützen und die Akzeptanz zu erhöhen.“

Facebook Remote für 50%

Mark Zuckerberg on taking his massive workforce remote – ‘We’re going to be the most forward-leaning company on remote work at our scale’ … [T]he company is making most of its open roles in the United States available for remote recruiting and hiring. And later this year, many of Facebook’s 48,000 employees around the world will be able to request a switch to remote work. Within the next decade, Zuckerberg predicts, Facebook – a company that until recently paid new hires a bonus of up to $15,000 to live near its Menlo Park headquarters – could be a largely remote workforce.“

The Verge

„Zuckerberg announced that Facebook is going to ‚aggressively‘ ramp up its hiring of remote workers, and the company is going to take a ‚measured approach‘ to opening up permanent remote work positions for existing employees. – Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday said he predicts that 50% of the company’s employees could be working remotely within the next five to 10 years. … ‚We’ll adjust salary to your location at that point,‘ said Zuckerberg, citing that this is necessary for taxes and accounting. ‚There’ll be severe ramifications for people who are not honest about this.'“


Facebook’s Workplace, now with 5M paying users, adds drop-in video Rooms and more – Facebook announced a number of new products coming to Workplace, its enterprise-focused chat and video platform, including Workplace versions of Rooms (its Houseparty video drop-in clone), Work Groups (a feature it launched on Facebook itself last October to create informal Groups for co-workers), more tools to make video conversations more interactive and enhanced tools for its Portal video hardware.“


Coinbase Remote First

„Post COVID-19, Coinbase will be a remote-first company – After the restrictions of quarantine are over, Coinbase will embrace being ‚remote-first,‘ meaning we will offer the option to work in an office or remotely for the vast majority of roles. – Whether in an office or remote, being ‚remote-first‘ means we will all need to shift how we work. – We know you have lots of questions. We don’t have all the answers yet, but we’re working on it.“


Wir sind jetzt alle Livestreamer

„We Are All Livestreamers Now, and Zoom Is Our Stage – Did you find yourself, over these last fascinating and upsetting weeks, always on camera? Attending meetings and social gatherings, pitches and parties, over videoconference? Toasting into the void? … Stop thinking of an office as a meeting place. Think of an office as a cineplex, each conference room a theater of craft and discipline. In my fantasies the networks are always fast and the software never crashes. … We’re all going to be streams of live data, games and toys and windows. It’s unavoidable. We should welcome it, in fact. Spend time, spend money, and make this happen.“
