how tech titans listen in on voice recordings

VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS COMPLICATE THE PRIVACY ISSUE When you speak to a virtual assistant on your mobile device, wearable, computer or smart speaker, it’s easy to assume that it’s a truly private conversation between just you and the assistant. However, numerous revelations in recent weeks and months will, for many people, have cast significant doubt on that theory. Many big-name tech companies have been listening in, albeit reportedly only in a select few, carefully justified instances. Do we have reason to be worried? TECH GIANTS CAUGHT WITH THEIR HANDS IN THE COOKIE JAR For years, user privacy has been a major issue in the tech sphere. This has undoubtedly been exacerbated by the Cambridge Analytica scandal that engulfed Facebook last year and saw the social media company come under fire for its handling of…

google employees call for pledge not to work with ice

Hundreds of Google employees are calling on the company to pledge it won’t work with U.S. Customs and Border Protection or Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It’s the latest in a year full of political and social pushback from the tech giant’s workforce. A group of employees called Googlers for Human Rights posted a public petition urging the company not to bid on a cloud computing contract for CBP, the federal agency that oversees law enforcement for the country’s borders. Bids for the contract were due Aug. 1. It is not clear if Google expressed interest. The company did not return a request for comment. More than 900 Google employees had signed the petition. Citing a “system of abuse” and “malign neglect” by the agencies, the petition demands that Google not provide any…

facebook rolls out tool to block off-facebook data gathering

Soon, you could get fewer familiar ads following you around the internet — or at least on Facebook. Facebook is launching a long-promised tool that lets you limit what the social network can gather about you on outside websites and apps. The company said that it is adding a section where you can see the activity that Facebook tracks outside its service via its “like” buttons and other means. You can choose to turn off the tracking; otherwise, tracking will continue the same way it has been. Formerly known as “clear history,” the tool will now go by the slightly clunkier moniker “off-Facebook activity.” The feature launches in South Korea, Ireland and Spain, consistent with Facebook’s tendency to launch features in smaller markets first. The company did not give a timeline for when…

amazon: facial recognition program for cops detects emotion

Amazon has announced its facial recognition program used by one Washington state police agency can now detect emotion, generating concerns from privacy advocates. Amazon announced its Rekognition tool has been enhanced to detect basic emotions, including fear. Officials say the American Civil Liberties Union is seeking a delay on police use of the product without regulation until the implications are discussed. Amazon says Rekognition could be used to monitor unsafe online content and find missing persons on social media. The ACLU says it tested the tool by comparing Congress members to a database of mug shots and found 28 false matches were returned. Amazon says the ACLU did not use the tool correctly. Amazon says the Washington County Sheriff’s Office is the only agency using it.…

work for apple: 2.4 million us jobs and counting

As Apple reveals its US jobs footprint has grown to 2.4 million, we pull back the curtain on one of America’s biggest employers, explore how the firm has transformed the technology industry, and explain how anyone can make a living from Apple and its ecosystems… 2.4 MILLION JOBS AND COUNTING More than three decades ago, Andy MacKay and four friends founded Maccor, which today has earned a reputation as the number one manufacturer of battery testing systems in the world. For a company like Apple, battery testing is critical - in fact, the company cannot ship a single unit without first ensuring its batteries are safe and reliable. That’s why, for a number of years, Apple has depended on the team at Maccor and its expertise in its field to power its…

georgia voters challenge legality of new election system

Georgia voters who want hand-marked paper ballots are challenging the new election system state officials are rushing to implement in time for next year’s presidential primaries, saying the new touchscreen machines remain vulnerable and their results unverifiable, even though they produce paper records. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced the state’s purchase of a $106 million election system from Denver-based Dominion Voting Systems last month, with plans to replace the outdated election management system and paperless touchscreen voting machines in use since 2002. He then certified the new system on Aug. 9, and said it will be in place in time for the March 24 primaries. The voters’ petition, seeking a withdrawal of the certification and a re-examination of the Dominion system, was submitted this week to Raffensperger’s office. It says the…
