  1. The antitrust pressure against both companies may increase early next year. It’s only been a few months since the US Department of Justice filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, but it sounds legal battles are on the horizon. According to The Wall Street Journal, both federal and state antitrust authorities will be filing new lawsuits against Google and Facebook. This would mark the first time that Facebook has been sued by the government on antitrust grounds. Google has made plenty of statements in the past de
  2. MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has opened a case against U.S. tech giant Google for failing to remove banned content from its search engine, communications watchdog Roskomnadzor said on Monday. Roskomnadzor said Google was not removing up to 30% of what it called “dangerous content”, some of which it said was extremist, pornographic and suicidal in nature. It opened “administrative proceedings” that could lead to a court case and a fine of up to 5 million roubles ($65,670). Google in Russia declined to comment. A Russian court previously fined Google
  3. Company argued it can’t disclose information under privacy law Couple’s son is accused of deception in London court fight (Bloomberg) -- Google was ordered by a U.S. judge to turn over the content of emails of the son of Farkhad Akhmedov to the Russian oligarch’s former wife in her pursuit of a 450 million-pound ($601 million) divorce judgment. The skirmish over the email accounts is part of one of London’s largest divorce fights -- involving a super yacht in Dubai and litigation funder Burford Capital L
  4. The Administrative Court of Stockholm rejected Google’s appeal against the decision of the Swedish data protection authority (Authority) and confirmed that Google has violated the provisions of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Authority had imposed a fine of 75 million Swedish kronor (approximately 7 million euros) on Google in March for violating the provisions of the “right to be forgotten” under the GDPR. They observed that Google did not handle individuals’ right to have search result listings with their names r
  5. LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will impose a new competition regime next year to prevent Google and Facebook using their dominance to push out smaller firms and disadvantage consumers. The code will be enforced by a dedicated unit within the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), which this year said it needed new laws to keep the tech giants in check. Google and Facebook dominate digital advertising, accounting for around 80% of 14 billion pounds ($18.7 billion) spent in 2019, Britain’s competition regulator the CMA said. The two U.S. comp
  6. "The Wall Street Journal" reports that Google is laying the groundwork for a fiber-optic network that for the first time will connect Israel and Saudi Arabia, and that will open a new corridor for global Internet traffic, according to sources familiar with the matter. The project connecting India and Africa is Google's latest international infrastructure project. The company, a subsidiary of Alphabet, is competing with Facebook in building greater network capacity to support users' growing demand for videos, search, and other products. Greater connectivity between Indi
  7. LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s competition regulator said on Monday it was assessing whether a complaint about Google related to digital advertising warranted a formal competition law investigation. The complaint from Marketers for an Open Web (MOW), a coalition of technology and publishing companies, said it wanted the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to delay the launch of Google’s Privacy Sandbox technology. MOW said the technology would remove features such as login and advertising from the open web and put them under Google’s control.
  8. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan group of U.S. states plans to file an antitrust lawsuit against Google as early as next month, according to two people briefed on the matter, potentially beating a more widely anticipated lawsuit from a different group of states led by Texas. The pending legal actions follow an antitrust lawsuit filed by the U.S. Justice Department against Alphabet’s Google in October. The bipartisan group -- made up of Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah -- is sometimes referred to as the Colora
  9. Gmail and more Google apps are getting widgets on iOS Apple's iOS 14 added support for home screen widgets for the first time, and companies have been working to catch up and add widgets to their own apps. Google is one such company, and after adding a widget for the Search app back in September, the Mountain View giant has now revealed a few more apps getting their own iOS home screen widgets. Some of the widgets are rolling out in the next few days, and those are for Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Fit. The first two are fairly similar, featurin
  10. You'll have to run x86 version through the Rosetta2 emulation layer, or give it access to the Mac Bluetooth radio Google's attempt to launch its Apple Silicon port of Chrome got off to a rocky start after it was forced to pull the browser over stability concerns. "Earlier today we updated our Chrome download page to include a new version of Chrome optimized for new macOS devices featuring an Apple processor," wrote a company representative on the Chrome support pages. "We've discovered that the version of Chrome made available for download today may crash u
  11. Google said its new Cloud Armor Adaptive Protection networking security technology leverages machine learning to protect against Layer 7 DDoS attacks. Google on Wednesday announced a bevy of updates across its Network Security portfolio for Google Cloud customers. New features include enhancements to existing DDoS protections, as well as new capabilities that aim to help customers protect data and applications in the cloud. The most significant update is Google's new Cloud Armor Adaptive Protection networking security technology, which leverages mach
  12. GitHub has removed several repositories that helped to bypass Google's Widevine DRM, which is used by popular streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon. Google requested the code to be removed as it would violate the DMCA. The company also sent a sensitive data takedown request for the associated RSA key which, ironically, remains easy to find through Google. With more ways to stream online video than ever before, protecting video continues to be a key issue for copyright holders. This is often achieved through Digital Rights Management,
  13. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc’s Google and the U.S. Justice Department have failed to reach agreement over a protective order for third parties like Microsoft that provided data to the government for its lawsuit against the search and advertising giant. Google is pressing for two in-house attorneys to have access to the confidential data while the Justice Department and state attorneys general involved in the lawsuit have disagreed, Google said in a court filing on Friday. Google stated it needed the information to prepare an effective defense. It offered to
  14. BREIN says it has closed down several "open directories" after they offered thousands of pirated eBooks to users in breach of copyright. With some operators now liable to pay settlements to the Dutch anti-piracy group, those familiar with more modern ways of obtaining content may be asking what this ancient form of file-sharing is all about. Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN aims to tackle all kinds of piracy, wherever and however it takes place online. From popular P2P technologies such as BitTorrent through to streaming portals and the well-es
  15. Ad giant sued after mobile allowances eaten by hidden transfers Google on Thursday was sued for allegedly stealing Android users' cellular data allowances though unapproved, undisclosed transmissions to the web giant's servers. The lawsuit, Taylor et al v. Google [PDF], was filed in a US federal district court in San Jose on behalf of four plaintiffs based in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin in the hope the case will be certified by a judge as a class action. The complaint contends that Google is using Android users' limited cellular data allowance
  16. BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A group of 165 companies and industry bodies have called on EU antitrust enforcers to take a tougher line against Google, saying the U.S. tech giant unfairly favours its own services on its web searches. The group includes U.S. and UK companies as well as peers in 21 EU countries. It sent a joint letter to EU antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager on Thursday, saying Google was giving its own services, such as those for accommodation, travel and jobs, preferential placement in its search results and urging swift action to stop the practice.
  17. Another antitrust headache for Alphabet. What you need to know Google is being investigated bu the Competition Commission of India over antitrust allegations. The company is being accused of unfairly privileging its Google Pay payment system in the Play Store over competitors. Google rejects this characterization, arguing that it neither has a monopoly on phones nor does is the Play Store the exclusive distribution area for smartphone apps in India. The CCI rejects Google's claims regarding being a m
  18. Every company has decided working away from the office is the only way to function during the pandemic, right? Actually, this isn't the case. Google's offices are empty all over the world. Not all companies are the same. You've been in your bedroom a while now. You've created a makeshift workspace and relocated your bike and some of your excess sneakers. Now, you spend your days just as you always did, staring at your computer with your headphones on. Except now you get the occasional chance to Zoom into someone else's bedroom
  19. Web giant insists anti-bot service isn't used for personalized ads – but cookie claims don't quite add up Analysis Six years ago, Google revised its reCAPTCHA service, designed to filter out bots, scrapers, and other automated web browsing, and allow humans through to websites. The v2 update in 2014 added an iframe or HTML Inline Frame, which is a way of embedding one web page in another. Then there was the v3 update in 2018, which added machine learning to the mix, to reduce the need for interaction with bot detection challenges. reCAPTCHA make
  20. Depending on how much storage you're using in G Suite, you're either going to think this a non-issue -- or you're going to be adding a major migration project to your to-do list. Gotta love 2020. In early October, Google rebranded G Suite as Google Workspace. But this isn't just a rebrand. The amount of storage provided by Google Drive is dropping considerably for some users of the G Suite Business plan, which is the plan Google has long highlighted as "most popular." Here's how it used to be: G Suite plans, captured from Archive.org
  21. On October 20, the United States government filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google. One question is: was that really for abuses of antitrust law, or was it just about politics and scoring points in the U.S. national election? And, is Apple actually be the biggest potential casualty in an antitrust battle between the U.S. government and Google? “I think there’s been a consensus now for a while on both the left and the right, that companies like Google and Facebook have too much power in the marketplace,” Greg Sterling, VP of insights for Uberall, told me
  22. Entrusting your data to big tech platforms can be highly risky. Users who have been banned by Google for supposedly violating its terms of service have been left without access to key parts of their lives. Many have appealed the suspensions but have received automated responses. They don't know why they've been banned. "This is just how life is when you're dealing with trillion-dollar faceless corporations," said Aral Balkan. When he received the notification from Google he couldn't quite believe it. Cleroth, a game developer who asked n
  23. By Ed Bott for The Ed Bott Report By an overwhelming margin, respondents to our latest ZDNet poll agree with the government's decision to file antitrust charges against Google. But how to cure the problem is another story. And just what does Buffy the Vampire Slayer have to do with all this? Last week we asked ZDNet readers to weigh in on the decision by the U.S. Government and 11 state attorneys general to file antitrust charges against Google. Do you think Google is guilty? And if so, what do you think is the best remedy?
  24. Google is bringing its own VPN to desktops and phones with $9.99 Google One subscription Your cloud storage now comes with more secure browsing There are any number of VPN services you can use to help protect your privacy and security with an encrypted internet connection, and now Google has its own. Well, technically, it already did, but only for Google Fi cellular subscribers on Android smartphones. Now, the company’s announcing it’ll throw in an Android-based VPN free of charge to any 2TB Google One cloud storage subscrib
  25. (Reuters) - Google parent Alphabet Inc returned to sales growth in the third quarter as businesses initially hobbled by the coronavirus pandemic resumed advertising with the internet’s biggest supplier of ads, the tech giant said on Thursday. Alphabet shares rose 4.4% after ending regular trading at $1,556.88. Wall Street had expected a rebound from Alphabet because the company said in July that advertiser spending was inching back following a March plummet due to lockdowns. Google competitors Snap Inc and Microsoft Corp also reported third quarter revenue
