the remarkable history of instant messaging

HOW THIS SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY CONTINUES TO BRING MORE OF US TOGETHER The very notion of being able to instantly send a message to someone located on the other side of the world – or even just the other side of one’s home or office – would have seemed nigh-on inconceivable to most of the world’s population not so long ago. And of course, instant messaging is a concept that only became mainstream a few decades ago, within easy living memory for many of us. However, the concept has also come so far already in terms of what it represents and makes possible for so many people. Indeed, it continues to develop in remarkable ways – and as we shall see, offers scope for an enthralling future, too. A SHORT HISTORY OF THE HUMBLE…

facebook offering ‘millions’ to publishers for news

Facebook is reportedly in talks with news publishers to offer “millions of dollars” for the rights to publish their material on its site. The move follows years of criticism over its growing monopolization of online advertising to the detriment of the struggling news industry. The Wall Street Journal reported that Facebook representatives had told news executives that they’d pay as much as $3 million a year to license stories, headlines and other material. Facebook declined to comment but confirmed that the company is working on launching a “news tab” for its service this fall. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg began talking about a news section on the service in April. A person familiar with the matter confirmed that Facebook has approached News Corp. about paying to license Wall Street Journal stories. The person…

privacy questions as humans reviewed user audio at facebook

Facebook has paid contractors to transcribe audio clips from users of its Messenger service, raising privacy concerns for a company with a history of privacy lapses. The practice was, until recently, common in the tech industry. Companies say the use of humans helps improve their services. But users aren’t typically aware that humans and not just computers are reviewing audio. Transcriptions done by humans raise bigger concerns because of the potential of rogue employees or contractors leaking details. The practice at Google emerged after some of its Dutch language audio snippets were leaked. More than 1,000 recordings were obtained by Belgian broadcaster VRT NWS, which noted that some contained sensitive personal conversations — as well as information that identified the person speaking. “We feel we have some control over machines,” said Jamie Winterton,…

verizon sells early social-media darling tumblr

Verizon is selling Tumblr, a darling of early social media, to the owner of blogging platform WordPress. Tumblr is known for its devoted fan base and has been home to angry posts from celebrities like Taylor Swift. It angered many users last year when it banned porn. Verizon got Tumblr through its 2017 purchase of Yahoo. Yahoo bought Tumblr for $1.1 billion in 2013, but ended up writing off much of its value. Terms of Verizon’s sale to WordPress owner Automattic weren’t disclosed. Verizon had hoped to create an ad business to compete with Google and Facebook but its media business ran into trouble. It has cut jobs and sold some Yahoo properties, including the photo-sharing site Flickr and Polyvore, a fashion and collaging site that was then shut down.…

broadcom to buy symantec’s enterprise business for $10.7b

Semiconductor giant Broadcom says it has reached a deal to buy the enterprise business of cybersecurity company Symantec for $10.7 billion cash. Symantec provides cloud, web and data security for organizations. The company also has a consumer business, which is not part of the deal. Broadcom said it expects the Symantec business to bring in over $2 billion in annual revenue. The deal will strengthen chipmaker Broadcom’s position in the infrastructure technology market. Broadcom tried to acquire Qualcomm last year, but was blocked by the Trump administration. Broadcom Inc. then moved its headquarters to San Jose, California from Singapore. Symantec Corp.’s stock climbed more than 12% amid speculation of a deal.…

2019 ipads: the best lineup yet

The world’s most advanced tablet range took a major leap forward earlier this year when Apple introduced an all-new iPad mini and iPad Air - but Tim Cook and Co aren’t done there.
