    DOVER, Del. (AP) — An app that alerts people in Delaware to potential exposures to the coronavirus has been downloaded by more than 100,000 adults in the state. The Delaware State News reported Tuesday that the download numbers have surpassed the expectations of state officials. The state had initially hoped to reach about 10% of the adult population, or about 77,000 Delawareans, when it was launched in September. But the COVID Alert DE app has been downloaded 100,005 times as of Tuesday. “As the winter surge of COVID-19 cases strained our contact tracing system, COVID Alert DE filled a big gap,” Gov. John Carney said in a statement. “It anonymously notified Delawareans of potential exposures to the virus and gave Delawareans good information to help keep their family, friends, and neighbors safe. I want to thank all of my fellow Delawareans who have downloaded this app to help limit the...
    The invitation-only audio-chat social networking app Clubhouse is pictured on a smartphone on January 26, 2021 in Berlin, Germany.Thomas Trutschel | Photothek | Getty Images LONDON — The audio-only social media app Clubhouse appears to have been blocked in China. Queeny Li, a communications professional based in Shenzhen, and Michael Norris, a tech analyst in Shanghai, told CNBC that the Clubhouse app no longer works for them. "Clubhouse has been blocked," said Norris, echoing what multiple media reports have said. "Clubhouse's ban was expected," Norris added. "Indeed, the sudden rush to give Clubhouse a whirl was driven by the sense that a ban was imminent." Some Clubhouse users in China are now being shown an error message when they open the app. The message reads: "An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made."

    The ‘free speech’ social network Parler spiked in popularity late last year before losing its ride on Amazon Web Services hosting and listings in major app stores following the January 6th riots that attacked the US Capitol Building. Now, according to Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, its CEO John Matze is out, informing staffers in a memo that he has been terminated by board members at the behest of major Republican political donor Rebekah Mercer. The app had been a preferred outlet for supporters of Donald Trump who saw it as an alternative to facing possible moderation on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Now it remains offline without any update of when it may resume service, or publicly announced plan to restore its app on iOS or Android. In his memo on Friday Matze said “I have worked endless hours and fought constant battles to get the Parler...

    After his social media platform was largely wiped off the web, Parler CEO and co-founder John Matze says he has been fired by his company’s own board of directors, according to a memo obtained by Fox News and a text message confirmation he sent to Reuters. Parler, of course, is the social network that found itself wholly deplatformed after its role in the January 6th riots at the US Capitol. Both Apple and Google removed the app from their app stores after being unsatisfied with the company’s attempts to moderate the spread of calls for violence. Amazon decided to terminate the company’s AWS website hosting completely. And though Parler did try to sue Amazon, a judge denied a demand for its website hosting to be reinstated. On January 10th, Matze told Fox News that all the company’s vendors — and even its lawyers — had abandoned him. Today, Matze...
    A pair of federal lawsuits filed Thursday allege that the online trading platform Robinhood engaged in market manipulation when it began restricting transactions on several stocks that have been driven up through unprecedented efforts by users of the social media and news aggregator website Reddit. In defiance of Wall Street hedge funds that bet on certain stocks decreasing in value, users on the subreddit r/WallStreetBets last week banded together to drive up purchase prices for GameStop ($GME), AMC ($AMC), BlackBerry ($BB), and Nokia ($NOK). The Robinhood app played a pivotal role in allowing the Reddit users to easily purchase shares in those companies. But Robinhood stopped accepting new trades in the aforementioned stocks on Thursday, only allowing users to close out their existing positions while not allowing new purchases. “In light of recent volatility, we are restricting transactions for certain securities to position closing only, including $AAL, $AMC, $BB,...
    Byte, a TikTok competitor, has been purchased by Clash, another TikTok competitor. It sounds as though Clash may be merged into Byte, but the details are vague for the time being. Clash’s website now directs visitors to download Byte, and the company says Clash won’t be available on the iOS App Store for “an extended period.” Clash co-founder Brendon McNerney told The New York Times that the two apps will be released “together as one product” within a few months. “The market for apps that let you create and post videos from your phone has become extremely saturated. There are many competitors with similar (or better) feature sets, and far more distribution,” Byte creator Dom Hofmann, who was previously a co-founder of the video app Vine, wrote in a forum post today explaining why the app had been sold. The combination of the two apps speaks to the immense challenge...
    Hardware and setup Amber Bouman / News Brig The Grow is vaguely tongue-shaped, with a flat bottom and sloped sides. It’s roughly the height and width of two skateboards stacked side-to-side, and weighs 7.5 pounds, which is light enough to lift with one hand (an important detail, given I’m constantly holding at least one of my twins). It’s also compact enough that it fits neatly on my current changing table.  That said, I did have to ditch the padded changing pad that came with the table because, as with any scale, The Grow demands a hard even surface. Hatch includes a safety strap to secure babies; it’s hooked to each side of the Grow and is buckled and adjusted in front to keep wiggly infants safely on the scale while being weighed or changed. It’s worth noting that these straps should not be tucked under the Grow, as this...

    Bloomberg Dark side of the web would save Facebook and Twitter: Alex Webb (Bloomberg) – Facebook Inc. has long defended its indifferent stance toward disinformation on its networks, arguing that if stricter conditions were imposed, this type of content would proliferate, anyway, elsewhere. It’s more useful to control the conversation … or something like that. But pushing false information and incitement to violence into the darkest corners of the web might be a good idea. For a long time, Facebook’s line of reasoning has seemed insincere , especially due to the number of people who turn to the social media giant. Monthly, it has 2.5 billion users on its platforms, which include Instagram and WhatsApp. Together with Alphabet Inc.’s YouTube, these platforms attract the largest number of people ever witnessed in the world. Where else could disinformation find such a massive audience? Facebook’s ban of Donald Trump, along with a...
    Parler's CEO has said that he has been receiving death threats since his social media platform was thrust into the spotlight when rivals shut down accounts owned by Donald Trump and his allies. John Matze, who launched the app in August 2018 as an alternative to Twitter, said that he was being destroyed by the tech giants. 'People are threatening my life,' he said. 'I can't go home tonight. 'So this is really a lot, you know. This is not just our civil liberties. [Big Tech] can shut down a billion-dollar company, half-a-billion dollar company overnight.' Apple, Google and Amazon banned Parler from their app stores on Friday due to a failure to moderate 'egregious content' posted by users related to the violent siege last week.

    (CNN Business)Parler, the alternative social media platform popular with conservatives, has been banned from the Google Play Store, Google told CNN Business Friday evening. Google said its app store has long required that apps displaying user generated content have moderation policies in place to prevent the spread of violent rhetoric. "We're aware of continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the US," a Google spokesperson said. "We recognize that there can be reasonable debate about content policies and that it can be difficult for apps to immediately remove all violative content, but for us to distribute an app through Google Play, we do require that apps implement robust moderation for egregious content. In light of this ongoing and urgent public safety threat, we are suspending the app's listings from the Play Store until it addresses these issues."

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gov. Tim Walz announced Monday new technology to help Minnesotans slow the spread of COVID-19. At a noontime press conference, he unveiled a new app that helps inform users if they’ve been exposed to the virus. The app is called COVIDaware MN, and it’s free to download. About 20 other states are also using the app’s technology, the governor said. “It is painless, it is free, it is secure,” Walz told reporters, adding that the app doesn’t track users’ location or collect personal data. Here’s how the app works: If a user tests positive for COVID-19, they can request a code from health officials that they can put into the app, if they so choose. This code will then alert other app users if they’ve recently come within six feet of the infected individual. Those who are exposed are then alerted and can seek testing. “I...
    TikTok : When you are a successful application, you must prepare for the response of your competitors, which in the case of mobile applications is imitation or directly plagiarism. A few years ago we had a misunderstanding between a Facebook that wanted to buy Snapchat and a Snapchat that reigned as the most used app and did not want to be bought. And the result was the execution of the functions that made Snapchat different by Facebook in apps like Instagram, which, for example, gave rise to Stories. Successful apps In the case of game applications that go viral, such as Candy Crush, Angry Birds or Fortnite, it is easy to see tens and hundreds of very similar or directly the same games being replicated in the official app stores to see if they are lucky and catch a piece of the cake.

    YANGON (Reuters) - A smartphone app produced for Myanmar’s Nov. 8 election with help from international organizations appears to have been removed from circulation and may be amended after criticism over its use of a label for Rohingya Muslims that the Rohingya view as derogatory. The mVoter2020 app, launched on Tuesday and aimed at improving voter awareness, labels at least two candidates belonging to the Rohingya ethnic group as “Bengali”, a term that implies they are immigrants from Bangladesh and is rejected by many Rohingya. The app was not available to download for mobile and a web version was inaccessible on Friday, bringing up an error message that read "Server is temporarily closed". Marcus Brand, the country director of the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA), which is based in Stockholm and helped develop the app, said he understood it had been removed while discussions were ongoing...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday announced the launch of a free COVID-19 exposure notification mobile app as a tool to supplement the effort to trace and contact individuals subject to a COVID-19 exposure. The app, COVID Alert NY, notifies users if they have been in close contact — within six feet for at least 10 minutes — of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. “The COVID Alert NY technology complements the work of our contact tracing teams and will speed up the process by which New Yorkers are notified of potential exposure and provided with helpful resources on testing and social services from the State Department of Health,” said New York Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker. “We urge all New Yorkers to take the simple steps to download the app today.”
    With iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, Apple finally acquiesced to a longtime request from customers: the company introduced an option to change your default apps for browsing the web and handling email. But many other categories of apps — messages, music, calendar, etc. — remain stuck on Apple’s built-in software. Facebook isn’t too pleased about that. According to The Information, Facebook is making a more forceful push to convince the iPhone maker to let people choose their own preferred messaging app. “We feel people should be able to choose different messaging apps and the default on their phone,” Stan Chudnovsky, Facebook’s head of Messenger, told The Information. “Generally, everything is moving this direction anyway.” According to him, Facebook has routinely asked Apple over the years to make it possible for third-party apps to take over as the default messaging client. The answer has always been no. “The main guess...

    Following its removal from the Apple App Store, Fortnite has also been kicked off of the Google Play Store for Android. Earlier today, Epic Games snuck in an update for both the iPhone and Android versions of the game that allowed users to pay Epic directly for in-app purchases instead of using the officially sanctioned system for both platforms. What followed was a wild ride: Apple kicked Fortnite off the App Store, then Epic sued Apple, and finally there was an in-game video parodying Apple’s own 1984 commercial, positioning Apple itself as the monopolist. Now, Google is in the conversation. As with Apple, Google requires that games use the Google Play system for in-app purchases. Although the Play Store’s rules are somewhat more lax than Apple’s when it comes to in-app purchases, Google does draw the line at games. It’s quite clear-cut: “Developers offering products within a game downloaded...
    praetorianphoto/Getty Images A survey by Dating.com found 45% of women polled had been cheated on since the beginning of March.  The data was taken from 2,000 people to understand dating patterns in quarantine.  A majority of people surveyed suspect they've been cheated on at least once during the pandemic.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. While the logistics of cheating may seem impossible during a pandemic, a new survey found it doesn't seem to be stopping people from being unfaithful.  Dating.com polled 2,000 of its US users on whether they had been cheating on since early March, when the novel coronavirus was declared a pandemic. Over half of all people surveyed (55%) suspected their partner of cheating.  Some 45% of women polled said they'd been cheated on, along with 15% of men.  Nearly one-third of respondents said the affair took place with an old flame, and 20%...
    Reuters August 12, 2020 0 Comments China’s consulate in Houston had long been on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s radar as a base for Chinese efforts to steal U.S. intellectual property, the U.S. Justice Department’s top national security official said on Wednesday. In a discussion presented by a Washington think tank, John Demers, the Assistant U.S. Attorney General for National Security, said that Houston was “not chosen at random” when the administration of President Donald Trump last month moved to shut down the consulate. Demers told the Center for Strategic and International Studies that the U.S. government’s move to close the consulate was intended to disrupt “what we had been tracking for some time.” He was aware of 50 instances in 30 different U.S. cities where similar industrial and intellectual property espionage for China’s benefit had recently been reported. Houston was just the “tip of the iceberg,” he said....

    TikTok should be banned from the U.S. given its role in surveilling Americans, said Gordon Chang, Daily Beast columnist and author of The Great U.S.-China Tech War, offering his comments on the Wednesday edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight. TikTok is a social media mobile app for sharing short videos. It was developed and is owned by Beijing-based company ByteDance. Chang stated, “There are two reasons to ban TikTok and other Chinese apps from the United States. One of them is spying … and TikTok has been caught spying as recently as ten days ago by Apple, which pointed out that for the second time, TikTok was surveilling iPhone users. So, this is not a theoretical concern.” Chang continued, “The other reason is reciprocity. U.S. apps cannot do business in China, so why are we allowing China’s apps to do business in the United States? So, for those two reasons — spying and reciprocity...

    TORONTO (AP) — Canada is introducing a contact tracing smartphone app that will notify Canadians of exposure to the new coronavirus. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday the app will be voluntary and that if someone tests positive, other users who have the app and have been in proximity will then be alerted they’ve been exposed to someone who has tested positive. Trudeau said privacy will be respected. “At no time will personal information be collected or shared, and no location services will be used,” Trudeau said. Governments around the world have been turning to smartphone technology to help battle fresh virus flare-ups as they ease lockdown restrictions.

    LONDON (AP) — Britain is scrapping plans to launch its own coronavirus contact tracing smartphone app because of technical problems and will now work on building one using technology supplied by Apple and Google, health authorities said Thursday. The government’s app had been undergoing trials on the Isle of Wight, and was expected to be rolled out to the rest of the country later. But the program, previously hailed as a fundamental pillar of the U.K. response to the pandemic, has been delayed. Officials overseeing the app’s development said they couldn’t overcome a number of technical challenges they found during field tests with the app, such as reliably detecting other users on specific mobile operating systems.

    Bon Appétit editor-in-chief Adam Rapaport announced his resignation from the iconic food magazine amid claims that its staff of color was mistreated as well as resurfaced photo of him wearing brown face. “I am stepping down as editor in chief of Bon Appetit to reflect on the work I need to do as a human being and to allow Bon Appetit to get to a better place,” Rapaport wrote in an Instagram post on Monday evening.

    London (CNN Business)In the first few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, tracking apps were hailed as a key way to help countries out of lockdown.Using Bluetooth or GPS, the apps would track who an infected person had been around, then alert those people that they had been exposed to the virus.Public health officials said rapid deployment of the apps, alongside manual contact tracing and targeted quarantine, would allow stringent restrictions on the population as a whole to be lifted while significantly reducing the risk of a second wave of infections.Instead, many of these apps have been delayed as governments struggle to roll out complex new systems in record time, and those that have been launched are not being downloaded by enough people to have a major effect.Contact tracing 101: How it works, who could get hired, and why its so critical in fighting coronavirus nowExperts at Oxford University say that...
