RICO vs Huawei

„The US is charging Huawei with racketeering – Ratcheting up its pressure campaign against Huawei and its affiliates, the Department of Justice and the FBI announced today that it has brought 16 charges against Huawei in a sprawling case with major geopolitical implications (you can read the full 56-page indictment here). – Huawei is being charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) statute. The DoJ alleges that Huawei and a number of its affiliates used confidential agreements with American companies over the past two decades to access the trade secrets of those companies, only to then misappropriate that intellectual property and use it to fund Huawei’s business.“


JEDI: Amazon vs Microsoft

„Judge temporarily blocks Microsoft Pentagon cloud contract after Amazon suit – A federal judge on Thursday ordered a temporary block on the JEDI cloud contract in response to a lawsuit filed by Amazon. – Last month, Amazon’s cloud-computing arm, Amazon Web Services, filed a motion asking the court to pause Microsoft’s work on the $10 billion cloud contract. – The Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI, cloud contract was awarded to Microsoft last October.“


Facebook-Daten verfügbar!

„Why Facebook’s data-sharing project ballooned into a 2-year debacle – Facebook’s colossal social science dataset is finally here, but Nathaniel Persily, the Stanford law professor who helped shepherd its release, didn’t hold back about the nearly two-year slog it required: ‚I’m happy to be quoted saying this: This was the most frustrating thing I’ve been involved in, in my life,‘ he said. … That scandal was, in fact, the impetus for this project, according to King. In 2018, days after the Cambridge Analytica news broke, King says he got a call from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg asking him to study Facebook’s impact on the election. But King recalls that Zuckerberg was reluctant to give him access to all of the data he needed and allow him to publish his findings without Facebook’s approval. As an alternative, King and Zuckerberg devised a plan to open data up to outside researchers and allow Social Science One to vet their research proposals.“


Instagram-Shopping mal anders

Teens are hacking Instagram into a modern-day eBay – Entrepreneurial kids have figured out the future of the thrift shop: Instagram comments. – Carly Shipman, who hails from the suburbs of Chicago, lives the typical life of a high schooler. She goes to class every day, then to track practice in the afternoon. In between, there’s homework, watching movies, and browsing TikTok. And like millions of Gen Z kids, she spends a lot of time on Instagram. – But unlike other teenagers, opening the Instagram app is like clocking into work for Shipman. Before she goes to school, she takes outfit pictures when there’s good natural light in her room. During her free period, she replies to customers and updates them on orders. After school, she packages products and prints shipping labels, or goes to Goodwill to buy merchandise she thinks her customers will like. … In recent years, Instagram has made shopping your feed a near-seamless experience, which has spawned an endless stream of brands that only exist on the app. But the thrifting accounts toe a line between the personal and commercial. Auctioning off old clothes on Instagram is a very 2020 part-time job, and it follows in the footsteps of other ways teens use social media apps outside the norm.“
