We ve all suffered through live shows where most of the concert is seen through the person in front s phone.Maybe you re that person, we re not judging.The company filed for a patent back in 2011 on technology that would allow the camera to detect infrared signals which could potentially disable its function.For example, an infrared emitter can be located in areas where picture or video capture is prohibited, and the emitter can generate infrared signals with encoded data that includes commands to disable the recording functions of devices.An electronic device can then receive the infrared signals, decode the data and temporarily disable the device s recording function based on the command, says the patent.It means the technology could be used in any location filming is prohibited – cinemas, for example, and concerts.

When checking into places on Google Maps, you may have noticed that Google prompts you to volunteer information about the place you re visiting.For instance, if you check into a restaurant, you might be asked whether the establishment has a wheelchair-accessible entrance or whether the location offers takeout.There s a reason Google wants to know: attributes.Attributes consist of descriptive content such as the services a business provides, payment methods accepted or the availability of free parking — details that may not apply to all businesses.Attributes are important because they can influence someone s decision to visit you.Google wants to set itself up as a go-to destination of rich, descriptive content about locations, which is why it crowdsources business attributes.

London-based addressing platform startup, what3words, which has created a universal postcode/zip code alternative aimed at simplifying location sharing, has taken in new funding round led by logistics company Aramex.Its lead investor is intending to use the system in its ecommerce fulfilment operations across the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.what3words core idea was to replace zipcodes/postcodes with a universal and more accurate alternative by carving the global map up into trillions of 3m x 3m squares and assigning each a unique string of three words hence its name .So instead of an easily confused, difficult to memorize string of letters and numbers or numbers, addressing what3words style looks more like this: rocket.talents.pans.As well as promising to improve location accuracy and increase delivery logistics efficiency, the big opportunity the startup has stumbled upon is offering location certainty in parts of the world where there is none, or far less, noting for example on its website that: Around 75% of the world suffers from inconsistent, complicated, poor or no addressing systems.The country has some three million citizens, almost a third of whom are nomadic, roaming an area of more than 1.5 million square kilometres — making it a near perfect fit for what3words reworked location mapping.
Yelp is expanding the group of third party companies that can directly access its complete reviews data and announcing a new program called Yelp Knowledge.Today Yelp identified additional partners to gain access: Medallia, Reputology and Revinate.The concept is that through the Yelp data, multi-location brands and franchises won t simply see reviews e.g., 3.5 stars but gain a more holistic sense of how their locations are performing and how customer sentiment is trending.Accordingly Yelp has positioned this program not just as reputation management but social analytics, which can yield valuable operational insights.Though many analytics/reputation companies can monitor Yelp reviews the company says in a blog post, Only Yelp Knowledge partners have verified, current data and a direct line to Yelp to make sure their clients are getting trustworthy data.Yelp sees its data being used side-by-side with other social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter to help brands better understand their customers feedback about individual stores or locations.

Vodafone has warned that it is considering moving its current HQ out of London, dependant on the decisions made following the UK's vote to leave the European Union.In a statement emailed to the press, the telecoms giant cited how important it felt it was to its business that the UK retain "movement of people, capital and goods" following last week's referendum, all elements of business put at risk by the Brexit.While it had yet to "draw any firm conclusions regarding the long-term location for the headquarters," the statement continued by saying that EU membership had helped the growth of its business.As a pan-European company trading across the continent, Vodafone benefited from shared legal trade rules across all member states, and now feared the ramifications of Britain excluding itself from plans to form a shared, giant digital single market within the EU.While an operating division exists in Berkshire, the company's sizeable headquarters are based in London.Any decision made to move Vodafone's HQ would likely put hundreds if not thousands of jobs at risk.

TorrentFreak reports that Oregon District Court Magistrate Judge Stacie Beckerman dismissed a case against Thomas Gonzales, who was accused of illegally downloading Adam Sandler s The Cobbler.Beckerman argues that you can t hold someone accountable for copyright infringement unless you can prove they did it.The only facts Plaintiff pleads in support of its allegation that Gonzales is the infringer, is that he is the subscriber of the IP address used to download or distribute the movie, and that he was sent notices of infringing activity to which he did not respond.There s no guarantee that judges across the country will use the same standard, though.Hollywood hasn t and definitely won t stop making attempts to get money from pirates who download their films and that s fine.They have a right to protect their property, but at the same time, Hollywood must also have more to go on than just IP addresses as hard proof of accessing illegal content, especially since it s hard to tell if it s actually you doing the downloading in the location where you have internet access.
Trump is easily the most polarizing presidential candidate the country has seen in years.People either love him to the point that each new inaccuracy fact-checked by the media only makes their allegiance more staunch, or they hate him to the point where they can t even recognize that much of his schtick is well calculated.But regardless of which camp you fall in, you have to appreciate the internet s collective response to Trump s speech on Tuesday night, which was delivered in front of a giant wall of garbage.DON T MISS: Meet your favorite new Google search featurePresumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and his team chose a decent enough location for his speech on economic policy Tuesday night.A Pennsylvania factory belonging to raw material producer Alumisource was a great setting for Trump as he spoke of revitalizing American manufacturing, a broad notion most Americans can get behind.

What3words, a global addressing system that uses three words to describe precise locations, has raised $8.5 million in a Series B round led by logistics giant Aramex, with participation from existing investors, including Intel Capital, Force Over Mass Capital, and Mustard Seed.Founded out of the U.K. in 2013, What3words has partitioned the entire planet into around 57 trillion 3m x 3m squares — built upon the Google Maps API — and allocates each square a random three-word address.For example, a search for the Houses of Parliament in London reveals that part of it is most.native.shuts.Drag the pin around on the map, and you ll see a random three different words for any other location.Available on the web and through native mobile apps, What3words gives users access to an addressing system that bypasses zip codes, postal codes, and GPS coordinates.While it can be used for well-known points of interest and tourist attractions, it s perhaps better used for places that don t have an easy-to-describe location — for example, a tent in the middle of a large field or a hut in the desert.Increasingly, the London-based company has been selling its location-based smarts to companies and organizations — last month, What3words partnered with Mongolia s national postal delivery service, which has now adopted the addressing system in lieu of a consistent addressing system of its own within what is an expansive country.Aramex is a major win for What3words, too — the logistics and transportation provider operates in 60 countries.Indeed, in addition to investing in the startup, it will now also adopt What3words within its ecommerce fulfillment operations across Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.By integrating three-word addresses into our ecommerce operations across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, we are better able to reach more consumers worldwide, even those in difficult-to-access locations, explained Aramex CEO Hussein Hachem.

The Uber Technologies application runs on an iPhone during an Uber ride in Washington, D.C.Uber Technologies Inc. has developed new technology to track when drivers of the ride-hailing app go too fast, cut corners or brake harshly by monitoring the sensors in their smartphones.The software, part of an updated version of Uber s app for drivers that is rolling out to dozens of cities during a test phase this week, could help the company s more than one million drivers by giving them more feedback when a customer rates them poorly.But the use of such technology could raise new concerns about driver privacy and questions about how far Uber can legally reach into the lives of workers it classifies as independent contractors, rather than employees.Starting Friday, drivers in at least nine U.S. cities including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago will be shown a summary of how smooth their driving was for each trip, including separate scores for acceleration and braking and a map highlighting the physical location of each incident.Any time drivers go over the speed limit, Uber will alert them within its app in real time.

Yesterday, Fusion reported that Facebook uses location data to make friend suggestions and pointed out that this could lead to unfortunate privacy mishaps.But then things got bananas when Facebook reversed itself, saying that friend recommendations aren t based on location.Facebook s position is that the location-based recommendation experiment caused confusion on its communications team, and it ended up giving the wrong information to Fusion.Facebook says that location data is definitely not a part of that recipe.We may show you people based on mutual friends, work and education information, networks you are part of, contacts you ve imported and other factors.Even if you ve got your tinfoil hat placed firmly upon your head, the knowledge that Facebook never made location-based recommendations on a more granular level than city-wide location should help you rest a bit easier.
