    Microsoft has turned on a new set of Windows Tips that warn Windows 10 users that Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is draining their laptop’s battery. The solution, according to the notification, is to use Microsoft Edge. We reached out to Microsoft for clarification. “Microsoft Edge was designed exclusively for Windows 10 with features and functionality that enhance the browsing experience such as Cortana, easy sharing, reading, and researching,” a Microsoft spokesperson told VentureBeat. “These Windows Tips notifications were created to provide people with quick, easy information that can help them enhance their Windows 10 experience, including information that can...

    Guardian ^ | Aug 22, 2013 | By Ewen MacAskill in New York
    The National Security Agency paid millions of dollars to cover the costs of major internet companies involved in the Prism surveillance program after a court ruled that some of the agency's activities were unconstitutional, according to top-secret material passed to the Guardian. The technology companies, which the NSA says includes Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and Facebook, incurred the costs to meet new certification demands in the wake of the ruling from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (Fisa) court. The October 2011 judgment, which was declassified on Wednesday by the Obama administration, found that the NSA's inability to separate purely domestic communications from...

Executives from companies like Twitter, Google, Facebook, Slack, Snapchat and Yelp also signed the open letter, as well as Arielle Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

    In the powerful digital world, ‘Kill the Messenger’ has been simplified to ‘Kill the Message’. Everybody, including America’s most dangerous enemies got emails from Hillary Clinton’s unsecured, bathroom email server, but if yours are being serviced by Gmail, no one’s getting them and haven’t for some time. Google, Gmail’s owner, has been directing your emails to ‘Spam’ and ‘Promotions’ Tabs. In other words, everywhere but where you intended them to be. Worth repeating: Since at least May of 2016 Google which controls the Gmail email flow has been deliberately directing email messages into your spam tab or one of its...

While there is no crime in using algorithms to steer visitors to a preferred site or search term, the company faced significant backlash — from supporters of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, specifically — who were displeased with the apparent partisan stance.

    For the past decade, Hollywood’s battle against online pirates has been mainly been focused on leaked DVD screeners and illegal streaming sites. Now a pair of security researchers say they’ve discovered a vulnerability in the Google Chrome browser that allows people to save illegal copies of movies from streaming sites like Netflix and Amazon Prime. The vulnerability, first reported by Wired, takes advantage of the Widevine EME/CDM technology that Chrome uses to stream encrypted video from content providers. Researchers David Livshits from the Cyber Security Research Center at Ben-Gurion University and Alexandra Mikityuk of Telekom Innovation Laboratories discovered a way...

    Google says no no no, and … they may well be telling the truth. SourceFed offered up a video j’accuse Thursday that got enough attention from Google to prompt a flat denial — although, as you’ll see, they should have outsourced the effort to industry experts. Matt Lieberman compares the auto-fill suggestions given by Yahoo and Bing search engines to those produced by Google for queries about Hillary Clinton, and sees a rather dramatic difference. Is this evidence that Google is cooking its responses to bolster Hillary Clinton’s presidential chances? Or did SourceFed cherry-pick the query types to get these...

It appeared that someone at Google had decided that search traffic should be driven to pro-EU sites. Ingrid Carlqvist, a Swedish columnist who covers, among other things, migrant violence, at Gatestone, had her Facebook account deleted after posting a video detailing migrant rapes in Sweden.

On June 6th, 1944, American forces stormed the beaches of Western Europe in the bravest and largest amphibious attack in history. A battle that turned the tide against Nazi Germany and changed the course of World War II hasn’t earned itself a Google homepage doodle, however. Interestingly enough, you may remember Google’s homepage from May 19th where they honored Yuri Kochiyama, a social activist who openly praised Osama bin Laden, Malcolm X, and Fidel Castro for their work.

    Facebook censorship of individual member pages is not just limited to the United States. On Wednesday, Facebook deleted the personal account/page of Ingrid Carlqvist, the Gatestone Institute's Swedish expert. Her offense was posting a video news report she created for Gatestone that discussed an almost 1,500% increase in rapes in Sweden. Ms. Carlqvist suggests the increase of rapes may be attributable to the mass influx of immigrants coming mainly from Muslim countries such as Iraq, Syria and Somalia. Gatestone Institute is a non-partisan; not-for-profit international policy think tank run by former UN Ambassador John Bolton. Carlqvist's video (embedded below) is...

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee wants to restrict immigration while bringing back manufacturing. He compulsively uses tech products like Twitter but is not in awe of the people who built them. He made his fortune the old-fashioned way, by going into the family business, in the old-fashioned industry of real estate. He’s not the valley’s kind of entrepreneur. Worst of all, Mr. Trump is revealing Silicon Valley’s vulnerability. In recent years, technology companies have extended their...

After the meeting, one of the attendees, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, characterized the meeting “between Zuckerberg and conservative leaders as generally positive and ‘cordial’ – but, also expressed a cautious wait-and-see reaction to Facebook’s promises of reform, citing the social media giant’s loss of public trust.” He also said “We’ll see how the [internal] investigation turns out.” Bozell’s caution was well-founded.

They elevate peripheral figures to iconic status and relegate religious holidays to amorphous greetings. Google leverages its ubiquitous platform to doodle about holidays, anniversaries and famous people. But yesterday was Memorial Day, previously called Decoration Day – a day to remember the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice so we could live free as a nation, so that a few days earlier President Barack Hussein Obama (D) could visit Hiroshima, the Japanese city bombed by the U.S. that finally forced Japan's surrender,...

After she made that declaration, you can hear her mother asking why he has to...

More disturbingly, he said, is the more financially stable Facebook and its coordination with government censorship: It’s not just Facebook we’re talking about. They own WhatsApp and they own Instagram. And WhatsApp and Instagram are two of the companies that are winning the short messaging war–that are winning the war for Millennial attention and for Millennial users. Twitter lost that war.

Even as its user base declines and it struggles to find a viable revenue model, it can’t be denied that Twitter exerts an outsized influence, if only upon the narratives crafted by the mainstream news media.

    A Congressional candidate in Virginia’s 8th District has posted a photo on Twitter that incidentally includes a glimpse of his pornography tastes. Mike Webb initially ran as a Republican for the 8th District seat, which covers Arlington and Alexandria and is considered safely Democratic. He lost the nomination, though, and is now running as an independent, though he is, to say the least, unlikely to win. Webb published a post on his campaign page Monday that included a screenshot of his computer desktop. And as it happened, Webb hadn’t bothered to close his pornography tabs when he took his screengrab.......

    The European Union reached an agreement Tuesday with some of the world's biggest social media firms, including Facebook and Twitter, on ways to combat the spread of hate speech online.

That, of course, is Trump’s Twitter account — a high-octane portal for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee to pump out insults, political attacks and self-promotion to more than 8 million followers. But the billionaire’s foray into the world of social media began with a much simpler purpose, yet one that’s still distinctively Trump: making money. Costanzo crossed paths with Trump in 2009 when he was working as online marketing director for the publishing company putting out the businessman’s book, “Think Like a Champion.” Twitter was still in its...
