Trump vs Apple

„Trump slams Apple for refusing to unlock iPhones of suspected criminals – In a tweet, president Donald Trump slammed Apple because it declined the government’s request to unlock iPhones used by the Pensacola shooting suspect. – The tweet also suggested that Apple should work with the FBI because Trump helps the company navigate his trade war.“


„Apple refuses government’s request to unlock Pensacola shooting suspect’s iPhones – Apple said it has provided ‚gigabytes of information‘ to law enforcement related to the case. – The company still refuses to build what it calls a ‚backdoor‘ for law enforcement to its encryption, believing such a tool could be exploited by anyone if created and compromise the security of all its users.“


Apps teilen Intimitäten

„Popular Apps Share Intimate Details About You With Dozens of Companies – A new study shows how information about your sexuality, religion, and location is sent straight from phones to data brokers – A new study shows how popular apps, including Grindr, OkCupid, Tinder, and the period-tracking apps Clue and MyDays, share intimate data about consumers with dozens of companies involved in the advertising business. – The details include data that could indicate users’ sexual orientations and religious beliefs, along with information such as birthdays, GPS data, and ID numbers associated with individual smartphones, which can help tie all the data back to a single person. – The study, conducted by an advocacy group called the Norwegian Consumer Council, examined 10 apps and found that they were collectively feeding personal information to at least 135 companies.“


Google kauft Pointy

Google acquires Pointy, a startup to help brick-and-mortar retailers list products online, for $163M – The search giant is acquiring Pointy, a startup out of Dublin, Ireland, which has built hardware and software technology to help physical retailers – specifically those that might not already have an extensive e-commerce storefront detailing in-store inventory – get their products discoverable online without any extra work. … For Google, Pointy is a known quantity for more than the fact that it’s transacted with a Cummins startup before: Pointy and Google have been working together since 2018, when the former was part of a bigger push that the search giant was making into building tools for brick-and-mortar merchants.“


Google Smart Lock 2FA

„You can now use iPhones as Google security keys for 2FA – With an update to the Google Smart Lock app on iOS this week, ‚you can now set up your phone’s built-in security key.‘ According to one Googler today, the company is leveraging the Secure Enclave found on Apple’s A-Series chips. Storing Touch ID, Face ID, and other cryptographic data, it was first introduced on the iPhone 5s, though that particular device no longer supports iOS 13.“


Instagram DMs

Instagram starts bringing DMs to the web – As Facebook increases its focus on messaging – Instagram is finally bringing direct messages to the web. Starting today, a “small percentage” of the platform’s global users will be able to access their DMs from Instagram’s website, which should be useful for businesses, influencers, and anyone else who sends lots of DMs, while also helping to round out the app’s experience across devices. Today’s rollout is only a test, the company says, and more details on a potential wide-scale rollout will come in the future.“
