Tech Industry Google Alphabet Inc. Comments 4 Share your voice Tags Nasir Kachroo/Getty Images When law enforcement investigations get cold, there’s a source authorities can turn to for location data that could produce new leads: Google.Police have used information from the search giant’s Sensorvault database to aid in criminal cases across the country, according to a report Saturday by The New York Times. The database has detailed location records from hundreds of millions of phones around the world, the report said. It’s meant to collect information on the users of Google’s products so the company can better target them with ads, and see how effective those ads are. But police have been tapping into the database to help find missing pieces in investigations. Law enforcement can get “geofence” warrants seeking location data. Those kinds of requests have spiked in the last six months, and the company has received as many as 180 requests in one week, according to the report.Google declined to answer specific questions about Sensorvault but said the company has narrowed how much identifiable information it gives police.”We vigorously protect the privacy of our users while supporting the important work of law enforcement,” Richard Salgado, Google’s director of law enforcement and information security, said in a statement. “We have created a new process for these specific requests designed to honor our legal obligations while narrowing the scope of data disclosed and only producing information that identifies specific users where legally required.”For geofence warrants, police carve out a specific area and time period, and Google can gather information from Sensorvault about the devices that were present during that window, according to the report. The information is anonymous, but police can analyze it and narrow it down to a few devices they think might be relevant to the investigation. Then Google reveals those users’ names and other data, according to the Times.News of the law enforcement tactic comes as the tech industry faces intense scrutiny over its data collection practices. Facebook has been in the hot seat since its Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which user information from tens of millions of people was misused by a third party. Google has also been subjected to scrutiny after the AP reported last year that Google tracked people’s location even after they’d turned off location-sharing on their phones.It’s not uncommon for law enforcement to seek help from tech companies during investigations. But the use of Sensorvault data has raised concerns about innocent people being implicated. For example, the Times interviewed a man who was arrested last year in a murder investigation after Google’s data had reportedly landed him on the police’s radar. But he was released from jail after a week, when investigators pinpointed and arrested another suspect.
Disney Star Wars Director Ron Howard, who took over after the original directors left, had already noticed how Solo was catching on after its digital release in September. He tweeted about how the movie’s Rotten Tomatoes audience score was creeping higher. All the Star Wars movies, from the cheesy to great, ranked Solo wasn’t a box-office hero but it still earned a lot of fan love. Walt Disney Pictures/Lucasfilm Solo: A Star Wars Story arrived in May 2018 and quickly became the lowest-grossing Star Wars film in recent memory. But sometimes bummers turn into runners. A year later, Star Wars fans are rallying for a sequel to young Han Solo’s story. Box Office Mojo shows Solo pulled in under $400 million worldwide. Compare that with The Last Jedi in 2017, which banked over $1.3 billion. It’s no wonder Disney didn’t rush in with sequel plans. Some fans attributed the poor showing to the marketing campaign or fan anger over the events of The Last Jedi. As it turns out, Solo was a fun romp of a film with engaging performances from Alden Ehrenreich in the lead role, Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.The hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen hit the trending charts on Twitter on Thursday with a push from Star Wars News Net and its Resistance Broadcast podcast. TV and Movies Star Wars fans were ready to get on board, tweeting their support for a movie sequel or a streaming series on Disney Plus. This casting was too perfect to be a one and done right? #MakeSolo2Happen @RBatSWNN pic.twitter.com/NSATXHWGEO— Craig (@xwingxing) May 23, 2019 Make it happen @Disney #MakeSolo2Happen pic.twitter.com/azKpFho3O5— Aaron Nagler (@AaronNagler) May 23, 2019 3 as more people are catching up with #SoloAStarWarsStory I notice the #Rottentomatoes audience score is creeping higher! thanks for rating it! https://t.co/D9rq15NGGU— Ron Howard (@RealRonHoward) September 18, 2018 I 💗 Solo: A Star Wars Story. As someone who grew up with the original trilogy, I always liked Han Solo, but this film, and Alden Erenreich’s performance, made me love him. And don’t get me started on Qi’ra. Her story NEEDS to be told.#MakeSolo2Happen pic.twitter.com/yqY6itZTof— Jeremy Kulow (@jeremyjkulow) May 23, 2019 Share your voice Disney has carved out an extensive road map for future Star Wars movie releases, but Solo 2 doesn’t appear to be on the radar. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are signed on to helm the next film after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes out later in 2019.The future of Han Solo’s past doesn’t look particularly rosy, but stranger things have happened and Star Wars fans can be very vocal.

Sarah Tew/CNET $329 at Amazon The iPad Air sits between the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad, which is usually on sale for about $250, and the 11-inch iPad Pro, which starts at $799 and has a more powerful A12X processor. Bear in mind that Apple is currently offering a free pair of Beats headphones to students when they buy an iPad Pro or iPad Air, however, which again could be the better deal. 6:08 It’s the big one. Apple The persistent rumors about two new iPads coming in the fall may help explain the frequent discounts being applied to virtually all of the models in Apple’s current lineup. At the moment, Amazon has most of the best deals, with the biggest discount on the 64GB 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which costs $799. That’s $200 of the list price.That noted, Apple is currently offering a deal of its own — to students, at least: Buy an iPad Pro or iPad Air and pick up a free pair of Beats headphones. The deal is available to current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff and homeschool teachers of all grade levels. 11-inch iPad Pro: $674 $249 at Amazon iPad Air: $469 Apple iPad discounts, compared • Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

And if you’re looking to pick up the lower-priced iPad, it might be worthwhile to wait it out, as bigger price breaks may return in the next few weeks. Note that we’re focused on the Wi-Fi versions here. Using LTE on a tablet is cool but, for most people, not worth the additional cost — for the device and the monthly service — especially when you can easily tether your phone for free. $449 2019 iPad launch could be close $384 Save $125 $649 Best price (all-time) Read the iPad 2018 review $799 Amazon has the best price around on the high-end iPad: $329.

As mentioned above, Apple is currently offering a free pair of Beats headphones to students when they buy an iPad Pro or iPad Air, which could be the better deal for some. Computers Tablets $499 $799 Apple $329 The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the Cadillac of Apple’s tablet lineup and, arguably, the entire tablet category — and Amazon is again matching the lowest price we’ve seen to date. (Note that this price currently applies only to Space Gray version, and that it’s out of stock until Sept. 25, though you can still buy it for the sale price.)

Apple is making sure that it leaves no stone unturned in eliminating Samsung products from the world’s largest mobile market, the US, following a striking victory in a patent battle on Friday.On the other hand, the South Korean electronic power house is not yet ready to concede defeat, as it plans to challenge the verdict of US District Court. It said it will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of its products in the US market.”Certainly, we are very disappointed by the verdict at the US District Court for the Northern District of California (NDCA), and it is regrettable that the verdict has caused concern amongst our employees, as well as our loyal customers,” Samsung said in a statement.”However, the judge’s final ruling remains, along with a number of other procedures. We will continue to do our utmost until our arguments have been accepted,” the company added.Meanwhile, Apple couldn’t have asked for anything more after the US bench ruled in its favour ahead of the imminent release of its eagerly awaited smartphone – iPhone 5. Presently, Apple is working on to have some of Samsung’s products be taken off shelves, so it could strengthen its position when the new iPhone is finally up for grabs.The Cupertino giant is reportedly planning to unveil the fifth-iteration of the device on Sept 12. It’s also speculated that it would also begin taking pre-orders for the smartphone on the same day. Touted as the world’s most valuable company, Apple wasted no time in identifying eight older model smartphones including the Galaxy S2 and Droid Charge as its targets. While Apple’s lawsuit encompassed 28 devices, many of those accused products are no longer widely available in the world’s largest mobile market.Although Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S3 phone was not included in the trial, the jury validated Apple’s patents on features and design elements that the US company could then try to wield against that device. Apple may not have to seek a new trial over the S3, but can include it in a “contempt proceeding” that moves much faster, according to legal experts.In a significant blow to Samsung Electronics, the US bench in San Jose courtroom found the Galaxy maker guilty of violation of intellectual property after arriving at the conclusion that it had infringed on Apple’s patent.Samsung and Apple, of which both control more than half of the world’s mobile markets, are engaged in a serious legal pursuit against each other to gain supremacy in the industry. Samsung and Apple have filed several patent cases in various countries.Samsung said the Apple chose to go to court over the negotiations over the patent issues, while refusing to accept the former’s proposal for talks. “We have had little choice but to counter-sue, so that we can protect our company,” said the Korean technology major.Commenting on the latest US court ruling, Samsung accused Apple that “its primary means to competition has been the outright abuse of patent law, not the pursuit of innovation.””We trust that the consumers and the market will side with those who prioritize innovation over litigation, and we will prove this beyond doubt,” Samsung said.(With inputs From Reuters)
Darjeeling: There is an intelligence alert from Delhi stating that there are chances of suicide attack on monasteries in Bengal during Buddha Purnima to be observed on May 18.With the recent attacks in churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, India too has been keeping a close watch on the situation. On May 10, the Islamic State claimed for the first time that it has established a province in India. Intelligence and security agencies are not willing to buy further claiming that the last militant with ISIS links was gunned down recently in the Kashmir Valley. However, not willing to take a chance the intelligence agencies and security forces have been alerted for Buddha Purnima commemorations.
Last week, the team at GitHub released Git v2.20.0, a free and open source distributed version control system that tracks changes in computer files and coordinates work on those files among multiple people. Features Git clone process gets better with Git v2.20.0 The Git clone process will now warn users while they are cloning a project to a case-insensitive file-system, where there are files in the repository that only differ with their cases but have the same pathnames. Git v2.20.0 requires Vista With this new release, Git will now at least require Windows Vista or above versions to operate. Improvements to the Windows port has been observed, such as better support and DLL handling of nanosecond resolution file timestamps. Even the logic for selecting the default username and e-mail on Windows has been improved. Shows a progress bar The git status now shows a progress bar when refreshing the index takes a long time. Git multi-pack-index has been updated The git multi-pack-index has been updated for detecting corruption in the .midx file, and this feature has been integrated into “git fsck”. Consolidation When there are too many packfiles in a repository, looking up an object requires consulting multiple pack .idx files. Git v2.20.0 comes with a new mechanism which consolidates all of these .idx files in a single file. Major Improvements The generation of (experimental) commit-graph files now shows progress in the output. On platforms with recent cURL library, http.sslBackend configuration variable can now be used for choosing a different SSL backend at runtime. With Windows port, it is possible to switch between OpenSSL and secure channel while talking over the HTTPS protocol. A pattern with ‘**’ that does not have a slash on either side was considered an invalid one in previous versions. With this update, double-asterisks are treated the same way as two asterisks adjacent to each other are. “git rev-list –stdin /null” initially used to be an error in the previous version but it now shows no output without an error. The developer builds in Git now use Wunused-function compilation option. With this release, it is possible to create an alias that expands to another alias. The test scripts have been updated in Gitv2.20.0 for style and correct handling of exit status of various commands. Major bug fixes The issue with registering same path under multiple worktree entries has been fixed. The “git interpret-trailers” had a buggy code that ignored patch text after committing log message and that triggered various codepaths. This has been fixed now. The bug that leaves the index file corrupt during a partial commit has been fixed now. This release has received some positive response from users. An interesting fact stated by one of the users on Twitter is, “In Git for Windows, if we build cURL on one machine,it will run on an estimated 3 million different machines. This release has already created some buzz around, it would be interesting to see what GitHub plans next.” Read more about this news on the official mailing list.
