If you want to get to grips with the real risks of online privacy you need to understand just what happens to your data in the architecture of the internetYou press the shutter icon on your phone and capture a photo of your baby daughter.With a couple of swipes, you attach it to an email in your Gmail app and fire it off to your mother-in-law.As personal data goes, it doesn’t get much more innocuous.But the truth is that spraying around any private information is risky.You might think that’s overblown.
at Least 70 years of default-the number of Finnish has grown 25% in 2014, told the Finnish client data.customer information according to last year received the first payment default entry 1 430 70-year-old finns.a Total of 70 years of age or older payment kinds of persons is a total of 11 300.Partly this of course explains the fact that in the years 1945-1947 born a very large baby boomers have reached the age of 70 , said customer information business director Jouni Church bulletin.Older people constitute an exceptional group of finns in the crowd, as the customer information according to the new defaulted-the number of persons is the year of 2014-2016 has been a clear reduction in almost all age groups.the 45-59-year-old in the last year of the first payment default entry received a total of about 9 000 people, i.e. a quarter less than in 2014.
Forget everything you were taught in biology – plants don't need sunlight to grow.Growing Underground is a farm 33 metres below Clapham, south London, swapping sunlight for LEDs."Over the past three to five years, LED development has reached the stage where we can grow without any natural light whatsoever," says Steven Dring, who founded the project with fellow Bristolian Richard Ballard."You can even change the light spectrum to cater to the different plants that you're growing."Growing Underground's focus is on the leafier vegetables, from microherbs to baby leaf salad."What's new about the latest lights is that you can stack them very close to the crops, 25cm away, if not closer," says Dring, "so you can layer products and lights on top of products and lights."
Google engineering director Erik Kay talks about the new Allo messaging app and Duo video calling app during Google I/OGoogle has revealed its latest project to the world - an app which can effectively write your text messages for you.Allo learns over time from your style of writing and emoji use, and will present replies accordingly.Its Smart Reply feature is capable of analysing pictures sent to you - for example, a dog or a baby - and generating suggestions such as "Aww, cute dog!"will return results without the need to clarify who 'he' is.Clever feature Whisper Shout is an amusing way to enlarge or downscale your text in order to convey your emotions more clearly, and you can write and doodle on photos using Ink - similar to the way you can draw over Snapchat photos.Alongside Allo, Google launched new video messaging app Duo, which provides a live video preview of the caller in order to make the call feel less intrusive.
Hit me baby one more time.Glu Mobile hopes that its new Britney Spears: American Dream game will follow in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, a mobile gaming sensation which has generated something like $80 million for Kardashian alone since in debuted in 2014.San Francisco-based Glu has struck celebrity mobile game deals with stars who collectively have more than a billion social followers.Glu has to pay these celebrities royalties, but the strategy is a way to avoid spending a ton of money on advertising a game, as it relies on the cachet of celebrities and social media to spread awareness of the game.As with the Kardashian game, the Britney Spears game is aspirational.You also have to fend off rival singers to reach the top, perform at venues from the local Starbeans to international stadiums, and try to get your own stage at Planet Hollywood, the big casino in Las Vegas where the real Britney Spears performs.For Spears, the game represents an opportunity to expand her entertainment empire, as mobile gaming has become a very lucrative endeavor for Kardashian.Glu learned the hard way that fans didn t like its rendition of Katy Perry when it launched a game last fall.Glu is also working with other celebrities including chef Gordon Ramsay and performer Taylor Swift.Niccolo De Masi, CEO of Glu, said in an interview with GamesBeat that the game has tested well and he has high hopes for it.This is a partnership with a woman who has been around as a performer for 17 years.
Perhaps the reason why is its period World War 1 setting, which has caused the game to stand out in a crowd of future-set shooters like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Titanfall 2.However, it turns out the historical setting for the upcoming title was actually initially rejected by an EA executive."If you look at what other partners in our industry are doing, they're going into sci-fi; we've had a lot of success in the modern military space.The technical revolution or evolution during those four years is probably unmatched in the history of mankind."I think that what the internet is telling us with 31 million views and the most seen trailer of the history of EA is that the World War I theme is resonating with players out there.According to a YouTube playlist that monitors the most disliked videos on YouTube, the trailer is currently sitting at No 2 with almost 2.4 million dislikes, behind Justin Bieber's Baby.
When it launches this summer, Allo will offer an incognito mode that switches on an end-to-end encryption system known as Signal, designed by the privacy-focused non-profit Open Whisper Systems.And in the wake of Apple s landmark fight with the FBI over the encrypted iPhone of San Bernadino killer Syed Rizwan Farook, the move represents another step in Silicon Valley s shift toward user-controlled encryption in defiance of law enforcement.Allo s incognito mode represents a far more limited approach to encryption than Whatsapp s, Apple s, Viber s, or even what it s offering with Duo: Unlike with those apps, you must purposefully turn on incognito mode to send encrypted Allo messages; the app doesn t hide all messages by default.But Google s launching its encrypted communication apps as new tools that may or may not catch on, rather than Whatsapp s far bolder move to turn on encryption for its existing, massive userbase.Gmail and Google Hangouts, meanwhile, still lack end-to-end encryption, leaving them open to government surveillance orders.Allo and Duo s new security features, in other words, are Google s baby steps towards a fully-encrypted future, not the sort of bold moves to elevate privacy above profit or politics that some of its competitors have already taken.
Google today launched a new video calling app called Duo, as a sort of companion to the new Allo messaging app that was also introduced today at the Google I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California.Duo calls are end-to-end encrypted, said Google engineering manager Eric Kay.But the feature that makes Duo stand out most from other mobile-friendly video calling services — including Skype, Facebook Messenger, and Facebook s WhatsApp, not to mention Google s own Hangouts — is something called Knock Knock.It s a live video stream of the caller before you ve even picked up, Kay said.You not only see who s calling, but what they re up to and why they re calling.A smile, a beach, and a newborn baby can all draw you into the moment, making calls feel spontaneous and natural, and once you pick up Duo it puts you right into the call.Like Hangouts, Duo video calls run on top of WebRTC.Duo relies on a fairly new Google protocol called QUIC for quick UDP Internet connections , and it can perform a seamless handoff of calls between Wi-Fi and cellular connections, Kay said.One thing Duo doesn t have is support for calls between more than two phone lines.The app will become available on Android and iOS this summer, Kay said.
Both apps will be available later this summer.It s encrypted, and based on your phone number.Duo works wherever you are, Kay said, and it proactively monitors network quality several times a second and switches seamlessly between Wi-Fi and cellular.Duo also has an interesting and potentially controversial feature: Knock Knock, which shows you a live video stream of the caller before the connection is actually initiated.Not only can you see who s calling, but why they re calling, and what they re up to: A smile, a beach, a newborn baby, Kay said.Here s a closer look at the experience:What does this mean for Google Hangouts, Google s existing video app?

Nokia's back, baby!On Wednesday, Microsoft announced plans to sell the Nokia brand for old-fashioned featurephones for a cool $350 million to the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer Foxconn, best known as the manufacturer of the iPhone.Back in 2014, Microsoft officially ditched the Nokia brand for its smartphones, focusing on its Lumia and Windows Phone products.As a result, the once independent Finnish company's name is now most commonly associated with Snake II, teenagers' first phones circa 2002, and drug dealers.But while Nokia and featurephones have faded from view in the West, they remain a huge market globally.And at the iPod's all-time high, in 2008, 58.3 million units were sold — one-tenth the size of the dumbphone industry in 2015.The featurephone market is even an order of magnitude larger than the global auto market, which shipped 72.4 million vehicles in 2015, according to data compiled by Statista.Amid Apple CEO Tim Cook's visit to India this week, people are raving about the potential the region holds for the smartphone industry's growth.There are a "billion phone sales at stake," Bloomberg wrote.And while there is certainly potential there, the established featurephone market isn't going anywhere anytime soon.Cook acknowledged as much on the California-based company's quarterly earnings call last month, telling analysts: "The smartphones that are working there are low end, primarily because of the network and the economics, so the market potential has not been as great there."So while you might not use a Nokia dumbphone anymore, a hell of a lot of people still do.SEE ALSO: Apple is on a charm offensive in ChinaNOW WATCH: Your smartphone could be causing your face to break outLoading video...
On Wednesday the company announced its entry into the voice-activated virtual assistant race with Google Home, its answer to the Amazon Echo.Google Home promises to live alongside you wherever you reside, answering your questions, playing your music and reading your news, much like its popular rival.It ll also have Google search built in, which means it ll know a lot about you as soon as you sign in.According to its makers, Google Home is a sleek little device that will learn your music tastes, your commute and your daily plans — with your permission, of course, a spokesman said — and will use that information to tailor itself to your needs.Predators can already hack our baby monitors and computer cameras, and as Gizmodo reported this week, the FBI can neither confirm nor deny that it has wiretapped Amazon Echo devices.You can also turn off the Echo s microphone, though it s unclear whether even that could stop the National Security Agency from listening in.
Forget WhatsApp, FaceBook Messenger, iMessage and even Hangouts - Google's got two new messaging apps on the way that'll blow them all out of the water.Only this one lets you whisper and shout, shrinking or boosting your font so you don't need to mess about with bold, italics or endless punctuation to get your message across.It can automatically suggest replies, based on what your chat friends are saying or sending - recognising dog breeds, for example.You can call on Google without having to leave the chat app, so you can look up restaurants, book tables, or send directions to your mates without missing out on the conversation.It looks ace in action, but let's be honest - we're all using WhatsApp, aren't we?Both apps should be arriving this summer on Android of course and iOS.

Now, Talk It Over: On your anniversary, you want to remember the good times that got you to where you are today.You probably don t want to feel forced into spending time with someone you don t really feel like hanging around with.Well, that s kind of what Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg was faced with Wednesday.See, Wednesday marked the fourth anniversary since Facebook held its IPO and became a publicly traded company.On this day in 2012, Facebook went public at $38 a share.And in order to ensure whatever comes out of Handler s mouth is understood as much as possible, Netflix has hired more than 200 translators to handle the 20 languages in which Chelsea is being streamed.It s too early to say if Handler s humor will cross all those international borders no matter how well Netflix s translators do their jobs.The company will offer up $1.4 billion of its shares, and the rest will come out of the portfolio of Chief Executive Elon Musk.Tesla is banking on the $35,000 Model 3 to spur its next phase of growth, as the company has set a target of producing 500,000 cars a year by 2018.Cisco Comes Out On Top: Cisco Systems reported its fiscal third-quarter results after the stock market closed Wednesday, and investors liked what the networking-equipment maker had to say.Cisco reported a profit of 46 cents a share on revenue of $12 billion.Apparently, a bunch of people thought Lively s use of one of Sir-Mix-A-Lot s lines from his 1992 hit Baby Got Back showed racial insensitivity.
Of approximately 40,000 smartphone health apps available, about 800 are devoted to mental health, according to Robert Kennedy, MD, Executive Director of the American Association for Technology in Psychiatry.However, few of these apps are developed by clinicians, and there is little science to the vast majority of them, said Seth Powsner, MD, President of the AATP, and Professor of Psychiatry at Yale.Apps may provide solutions, the speakers agreed.New health apps launched by Apple just last month, in April, 2016, include pregnancy tracker Glow Nurture, newborn parenting app Glow Baby, and a diabetes manager.An Apple depression tracker named Start, includes a symptom tracker, medication reminder, depression rating scale, and information about medication side effects.The Collaboratory encouraged clinicians to contact them with ideas for apps, and for help in developing the apps.
To be more specific, he needs to convince several thousand of them, aged around 24, to be weighed, prodded and quizzed, donate blood and urine as well as undergo scans of their livers, hearts, necks and entire bodies.Their data has been used in more than 1,200 academic papers worldwide, including ones showing the benefits of eating fish during pregnancy, that peanut oil in baby lotions is linked to later peanut allergy, and that 15 minutes of exercise a day halves the risk of childhood obesity.This may sound a lot, but the Bristol study is part of a bigger and more unusual enterprise, a remarkable series of birth cohort studies that have tracked successive generations born in Britain.Researchers around the world are keen to use the data: "We have a clutch of proposals every week," says Nicholas Timpson, a genetic epidemiologist who leads many of the omic studies for ALSPAC.Around 1,000 cohort members have already attended the latest clinic, Focus @ 24 , which will collect measurements when these young adults are at their physical prime.Another project will also start this year involving wiring up the bodies and homes of 30 study members with sensors to measure how active they are, and in-house sensors and cameras to monitor eating, sleeping and TV watching.
But at its very core, AI is supposed to help relieve humans of mundane and repetitive tasks.Snips, a young Paris-based startup, believes in that kind of AI vision, and it is starting somewhat from the ground up with an iOS app that focuses on the first, and most important, foundation of artificial intelligence: memory.Whereas the likes of Siri and Google Now routinely connect to remote servers not only to get data but to "phone home", Snips keeps everything local on your device.As proof of its commitment to privacy, it even hired Javier Aguera, the founder of the privacy-focused but not so successful Blackphone.But the data sources it pools from is also quite limited at this point.You might find "Intelligent Memory" to be a bit underwhelming compared to less privacy conscious personal assistants, but that's OK. Snips admits that it is just the first baby step, the necessary cornerstone for future AI apps.
Not to mention making sweeping generalizations by claiming her own experiences represent the 80 million other millennials.Still many Baby Boomers and Gen Xers love to spurt facts about how entitled, selfish and lazy we are.But too often we are simplified into just a few less than complimentary characteristics.Using data from the Census Bureau and other reputable sources, we took a excavated into those beliefs with the aim of busting some popular myths about millennials.Without giving too much away, we found that most, if not all of the myths are overblown or widely misreported often, I believe, as a measure of resistance against a rapidly changing world .Check out the interactive wheel of myths below and full investigations into the 7 most common myths: https://venngage.com/blog/millennials-infographic/
