  4. In context: It is no secret that Apple CEO Tim Cook and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg are not friends. They have traded backhanded insults and indirect jabs for years. Part of the conflict comes from the differing philosophies. Namely: how to make money off a free product versus a sold product. While Tim Cook's barbs are never pointed directly at Mark Zuckerberg, they always seem to trigger the Facebook founder into a sometimes irrational response. In an interview back in April, Cook told MSNBC, “We’re not going to traffic in your personal life. Privacy to us is a human right. It’s a civil liberty.” The remark was in reference to the possible regulation of companies that use and sell the personal data and browsing habits of their users. The wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal was still fresh, and the comment reportedly angered Zuckerberg. On Wednesday, The New York Times published a scathing exposé covering Facebook's involvement in everything from the Russia investigation to sex trafficking legislation. The article noted that according to a source, “Mr. Cook’s criticisms [on MSNBC] infuriated Mr. Zuckerberg, who later ordered his management team to use only Android phones — arguing that the operating system had far more users than Apple’s.” “When an online service is free, you're not the customer. You're the product.” Thursday morning Facebook confirmed Zuck’s feelings on the matter and tried to clarify his response. The lengthy blog post seemed to be an attempt at a PR reversal calling the NYT piece "inaccurate," but one point addressed Cook’s criticism directly. This latest instance is not the only time Cook has made comments that got under Zuckerberg’s skin. In 2014, Tim Cook told Charlie Rose in an interview, “When an online service is free, you're not the customer. You're the product.” He repeated that refrain in September in a statement on Apple’s privacy policy. Taken in context, Cook probably had Google in mind, but Zuck did not allow that to stop him from getting annoyed about it. “A frustration I have is that a lot of people increasingly seem to equate an advertising business model with somehow being out of alignment with your customers,” Zuck told Time. “I think it's the most ridiculous concept. What, you think because you're paying Apple that you're somehow in alignment with them? If you were in alignment with them, then they'd make their products a lot cheaper!” source

  6. Why it matters: SK Hynix is the first company to announce JEDEC-compliant DDR5 DRAM. With the current climate of declining DRAM pricing due to overproduction and low demand, it's a welcome announcement that promises to deliver higher-performing memory for all market segments in 2020, just in time for the release of new CPU architectures from Intel and AMD. SK Hynix, the world's #2 memory manufacturer according to research firm Trendforce, has taken the wraps off its upcoming DDR5 memory modules, beating rivals Samsung and Micron to the punch. DDR5 is the next generation of DDR memory and is expected to deliver higher bandwidth, speed and lower power consumption (or a combination thereof) than its predecessor, DDR4. At the base of SK Hynix’s announcement is its recently-developed 1ynm process technology, allowing the company to beat archrival Samsung to the release of the world's first JEDEC-compliant DDR5 DIMMs. The ‘y’ in 1ynm stands for the second iteration (i.e. after 1xnm) below 20nm, and generally accepted as being 14nm/16nm. So, what’s SK Hynix showing off? DIMMS (both Registered and Unbuffered DIMMs) sporting 8x16Gb (gigabit) modules of DDR5 rated at PC5-5200 (i.e. 5200Mbps). That’s quite a jump (60%) over the top “standard” JEDEC DDR4 speed rating of 3200Mbps. The operating voltage on these modules is now 1.1V with power savings as high as 30%, when compared to DDR4, claimed the memory maker. In its announcement, SK Hynix also stated that the JEDEC validation process involved testing out the DRAM with a major chipset manufacturer, with testing carried out on both Server and Desktop boards. The announcement is purposely fudgy about who that is, but you can take the 2020 timeline as a sure bet as both Intel and AMD have announced major CPU overhauls for that year (Intel's infamous 10nm CPUs and AMD's Zen 3). source
  7. In a week which began with warnings from YouTube about the potential negative effects of the EU's Article 13 proposals, an interesting development is being reported by Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party. The vice chair of the Greens/EFA group reports that YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has visited Strasbourg and now appears to be lobbying in favor of upload filters. As the heated debate over the EU’s controversial Article 13 proposals continues, YouTube is becoming ever more vocal. Relatively silent in the run-up to the September vote which saw the European Parliament vote in favor of proposals put forward by Axel Voss’ EPP group, YouTube now seems very concerned over the possibility of being held liable for infringing content uploaded to its platform. “While we support the goals of article 13, the European Parliament’s current proposal will create unintended consequences that will have a profound impact on the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people,” Wojcicki wrote in blog post earlier this week. Wojcicki’s statement carried a stark warning that liability for YouTube under Article 13 could force the platform to block content from EU citizens. No company could take on such a financial risk, she said. Thus far, the Article 13 debate has been polarized, with the entertainment industries hugely in favor and companies like YouTube and pro-Internet freedom groups strongly against. Now, however, a new development has created an interesting split in the ranks, with Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party, warning that YouTube is now lobbying in favor of upload filters. As detailed in a release from Reda’s office this morning, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has made a number of statements in recent weeks that indicate that the video hosting platform is in favor of pre-filtering content before it’s made available to the public. Of course, Google has its ContentID filtering system already in place, meaning that it would be in pole position to further dominate the video hosting space, if the filtering option is adopted by the EU. “The fact that Youtube is now publicly lobbying for mandatory upload filters is not surprising in the least. By introducing ContentID, YouTube has already proven that is is very much capable of developing filters for certain types of content, such as music,” Reda explains. “If the entire market was obliged to install such filters, YouTube would not only be miles ahead in of its competitors in the development of such technologies, it would also be in a position to sell its filters to smaller platforms. Large platforms such as YouTube would grow further and be presented with an entirely new business model. The significantly smaller EU competition would be left behind.” In common with many activists, Reda is passionately against the idea of content being filtered. The MEP points to numerous failures of YouTube’s ContentID system that have led to entirely legal content being blocked or deleted from the platform. Reda also warns of a slippery slope where filtering leads to other unintended consequences, such as the stifling of copyright exceptions including parody or quotation. During October, Wojcicki posted on the company’s blog, warning that Article 13 could “drastically change the Internet.” The piece was effectively a rallying cry to millions of YouTube creators, who were urged to take to social media to protest the proposed legislation. Now, however, Reda is warning YouTubers against taking YouTube’s stance as their own, noting that its CEO has been in Strasbourg lobbying in favor of upload filters and is only interested in avoiding legal liability. “The fear of many YouTubers that internet culture and independent creatives will be sacrificed in this reform is certainly justified. They should however not make the mistake of singing from YouTube’s hymn sheet, whose CEO has only been outspoken against the liability of platforms for copyright infringements, while presenting mandatory upload filters as a reasonable compromise,” Reda says. “If you look more closely at the countless videos, it’s apparent that most YouTubers are warning of the exact problems that YouTube’s ContentID upload filters are already causing today: unjustified copyright strikes and the automated deletion of entirely legal creative content. YouTube and its YouTubers have very different interests in this debate.” The fact that Julia Reda is now speaking out so clearly against YouTube is likely to prove somewhat of a conundrum to the music industry critics who have been regularly attacking her on Twitter. While she has risen above many embarrassingly childish accusations, some have claimed – without any evidence – that she’s somehow shilling for YouTube-owner Google in respect of Article 13. Clearly, the battle lines in this war aren’t so easily drawn. Source
  8. Anyone remembers this. Made my first slideshow or a movie with it. Not a software, but a great software like thing that came with the OS was this. It was one of the most beautifully designed UI I had seen - even now I feel it is one of the best looking UI I have seen. Thanks for the link. I wish I had the hardware for it.
  9. Theater owners in India are being wrongfully arrested when movies are illegally recorded on their premises, a film group claims. In a plea to the Madras High Court, the Film Exhibitors Association said that following complaints about illegal camcording, owners are being arrested by the police, without a proper inquiry taking place. While Hollywood has its own problems with movie piracy, the position in India is arguably more pressing. Many of the country’s top movie titles are immediately pirated and placed online, much to the disappointment of film companies nationwide. Aggressive site-blocking appears to have little effect so, in association with the authorities, the problem is being tackled at the source. Many leaks happen when individuals or groups illegally record movies in cinemas, which is often simply a case of finding a screen and pointing a camcorder or phone towards it. In tandem, there are concerns that in some cases, theater owners themselves may be part of the piracy conspiracy. That, however, is leading to what appears to be overzealous policing. When movies are shown, it’s common for watermarks to be embedded in the performance, which allows content security companies to trace where recordings take place. Armed with this information, copyright holders are then filing complaints against theater owners, who are reportedly being arrested by police, in the absence of evidence they’re even involved. This has led to a plea to the Madras High Court by the Film Exhibitors Association (FEA), requesting that police are restrained from making arrests without evidence that theater owners are directly involved with unauthorized ‘camming’ of theatrical performances. “The film producers were filing complaints against theater owners falsely accusing the latter as being responsible for such piracy and the resulting losses caused to the film producers,” the Times of India reports, citing the FEA. “Police were arresting or attempting to arrest the theater owners merely on the basis of such complaints, without any inquiry. This makes the theater owner to run from pillar to post to obtain appropriate bail or anticipatory bail. The theater owners cannot be made responsible for all cases of piracy.” The FEA added that it’s impossible to search all members of an audience for hidden cameras, whether they’re present in phones, pens, or even spectacles. Public prosecutor A Natarajan countered, telling the court that calls for a blanket ban on arrests can’t be entertained and should be denied. With that, Justice Puspha Sathyanarayana issued an interim direction, ordering the Tamil Nadu Home Secretary and the Director General of Police to organize a meeting of affected stakeholders (film companies, distributors, exhibitors) to try and reach an amicable solution. The case was adjourned until November 28, 2018. In an effort to reduce camcorder piracy, last month the Tamil Nadu Theater Owners Association laid down a strict set of rules designed to prevent pirates from recording the latest movies and uploading them to the Internet. All cinemas in the southern state of Tamil Nadu were told to saturate their entire sites with CCTV cameras, including projection rooms and customer seating areas plus parking and entrance areas. It is not yet clear whether that has happened or if the measures are having any effect. Source

  11. A group of 34 organizations and institutions have signed the 'Warsaw Declaration', hoping to increase international cooperation in the fight against online piracy. The signees, including prominent names such as the BBC, HBO, and NBCUniversal, believe that effective global collaboration is key to address the ongoing problem. Last month, many key players in the entertainment industries took part in the International Content Protection Summit in Warsaw, Poland. The summit was organized by the Sygnał Association, supported by the EU’s Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), with an agenda featuring the latest threats and developments in anti-piracy enforcement. While these type of gatherings are not new, several of the participants used the opportunity to strengthen their ties. International cooperation, they believe, is a key component for successful anti-piracy enforcement efforts. To stress their commitment to this goal, 34 participants signed a new memorandum of cooperation titled the Warsaw Declaration. The signees, including BBC Studios, BREIN, Discovery, FACT, HBO Europe, LaLiga, MPA, NBCUniversal, Sky Deutschland, and the Spanish National Police, state that they “acknowledge and understand the need for regular international involvement of major stakeholders.” According to the summit’s organizers, the “Warsaw Declaration” can help to target the major piracy threats more effectively. This includes the increasingly global reach of cybercrime, new distribution methods, and the use of cryptocurrencies as payment methods. “Piracy is currently a highly profitable undertaking with a complicated network of relations. There is proof of its connections to other types of crime. said Teresa Wierzbowska, President the Sygnał Association’s board. “The alarming figures concerning the scale of theft and illegal trade of audiovisual content are a motivating factor to take action,” she adds. The declaration itself doesn’t include a concrete plan of action. Apart from acknowledging and understanding the need for more collaboration, there’s not much more to it. What it does say is that the signees hope to increase “awareness” of the “negative impact of piracy on the global economy” among “decision-makers, opinion leaders, media and society,” and persuade them to counteract this. Speaking with TorrentFreak, Sygnał Association’s Anna Słoboda notes that the declaration is just the first step. The next stage is to turn it into action. “For us, it was very important to let people from western and eastern Europe meet each other in one place to exchange experiences and contacts. I am sure that it will soon bring results,” she says. A copy of the Warsaw declaration is available here (pdf) and a full list of the signees can be found below as well. -A+E Networks -Anti-Piracy Protection -Association “For Legal Content!” -Association of Commercial Television in Europe (ACT) -Audiovisual Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAPA) -BBC Studios -BREIN Foundation -CANAL + Group -NDS -Clear Sky Initiative -Cyfrowy Polsat -Discovery -Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) -Federazione per la Tutela dei Contenuti Audiovisivi e Multimediali (FAPAV) -Group-IB -Guardia di Finanza -HBO Europe -International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) -ITI Neovision -Kreatywna Polska -LaLiga -Motion Picture Association EMEA -NAGRA/Kudelski Group -NBCUniversal International -OSN -RettighedsAlliancen -Sky Deutschland -Sky Italia -Sygnał Association -TeRaPro -The Spanish National Police -TVN -United Media -Warner Bros.

    Tried again (already downloaded) and it worked first time. SHA1 7f7bba699a241c841aff2bdffe41a9c69180a732 No malware on my PC. Maybe a random thing. Note the very heavy cloudfront/amazon scripting. Deixa pra la - obrigado.
  16. In other words, the sellers are not using the chip part of the card to do the transactions. Lets hope they are upgraded soon. Here, in my place, whole city to say the least if not the whole country, the machines have been chip enabled from a long time now I think.

    Firefox issues with insane forum.

    it works fine for me, at least today
  21. The files deleted were in the very folders that Microsoft themselves create for user documents, videos, pictures, etc. Should we blame the users for actually using these folders in the way Microsoft designed them to be used, or blame the Microsoft dickheads for not bothering to check for files BEFORE deleting user folders? And, let's not forget that the Insiders actually reported this file-deletion bug, and the Microsoft f*ckwits ignored it. Yep, after every disaster this is the trotted out well-worn response. But still, they've "fixed" it now by adding a severity level to the reports and are handing out badges to keen Insider build downloaders. That'll fix it, absolutely for sure, 100% guaranteed... until the next time anyway. Microsoft will stick to their failed strategies with a death-grip, regardless of how obvious their failures are to world+dog.

    Firefox issues with insane forum.

    Just tried it. Opened it with Start New Topic button on forum's main page. Even copy pasted your name on it. Seems to be working fine. Are you blocking anything from your side. Please post a screenshot about it. In most cases the above is related to cache and can be fixed by clearing cache though.
