Zoom und Privatsphäre? 90 Tage!

„Unter Beobachtung – Je populärer der Videodienst Zoom wird, umso mehr Sicherheitslücken finden IT-Experten. Nicht alle Fehler sind gleich gefährlich. Dennoch müssen Nutzer vorsichtig sein. … Trotzdem gibt es einen Kritikpunkt, der alle Nutzerinnen und Nutzer betrifft, ob sie nun Windows– oder Mac-Rechner verwenden. Am Dienstag wurde bekannt, dass Zoom seine Videokonferenzen gar nicht so verschlüsselt, wie es bislang vom Unternehmen behauptet wurde. … Der Schaden ist für Zoom aber schon angerichtet. Unternehmen wie SpaceX und die amerikanische Bundesbehörde Nasa haben angekündigt, die Software von Zoom nicht länger nutzen zu wollen – wegen erheblicher Datenschutz– und Sicherheitsbedenken.“

Apple und Amazon: Premium-Deal

Amazon and Apple Strike Deal for Prime Video In-App Purchases and Subscriptions – If their new sign-ups for Prime are tapering off in the U.S. - which seems very possible, given how popular Prime is and how long it’s been around — any new subscriptions they can get through in-app iTunes subscriptions may well be worth the recurring cut Apple will take. There’s practically zero risk that any existing Prime Video subscribers are going to cancel just to resubscribe using iTunes, and even less risk that any full-fledged Prime subscribers would downgrade to Prime Video only. It’s all upside for Amazon, even with Apple’s cut of in-app transactions. – It’s a win for Apple, a win for Amazon, and a win for users in the Apple TV ecosystem.“
