  1. Google has been tracking locations of Android phones even with location services turned off, even when no SIM card has been inserted in the phone, an investigation carried out by Quartz revealed. According to the report, Google has been tracking and collecting information including addresses of nearby cell towers since the beginning of 2017. When Quartz reached out to Google, it confirmed the practice. The report states that Google - a subsidiary of Alphabet - has access to data beyond "a reasonable consumer expectation of privacy." "The cell tower addresses have been included in information sent to the system Google uses to manage push notification and messages on Android phones for the last 11 months," Quartz reported, citing a Google spokesperson. However, responding to the queries via email, the Google spokesperson explained; "In January of this year, we began looking into using Cell ID codes as an additional signal to further improve the speed and performance of message delivery," adding that the Cell ID information was not incorporated into the Google system and was immediately discarded. Google has stated that the practice of requesting Cell ID information will be discontinued by the end of November 2017. Most modern smartphones track locations to enable applications to send personalised location-based information from weather forecasts to information about nearby business and traffic updates. These permissions can be denied by users not willing to be tracked. However, the practice that Google was indulging in did not give users this option, nor the knowledge that they were being tracked. The investigation discovered that devices that had been factory reset and where location tracking had been disabled were still sending information to Google every time they connected to a new cell tower. In the case of phones without SIM cards, the information was sent to Google every time the device was connected to a WiFi network. Security experts expressed concern as to why the collection of such data was not by consent and the option to opt out was not given to users. "It seems quite intrusive for Google to be collecting such information that is only relevant to carrier networks when there are no SIM card or enabled services," said Matthew Hickey a security expert at Hacker House while speaking to Quartz.
  2. PARIS: The theft of the personal data of 57 million Uber riders and drivers highlights how vulnerable we make ourselves when we install apps on our mobile phones and tablet computers. What happened? Uber chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi said Tuesday that hackers had compromised personal data from some 57 million riders and drivers in a breach kept hidden for a year. Stolen files included names, email addresses, and mobile phone numbers for riders, and the names and driver license information of some 600,000 drivers, according to Uber. Uber is notifying drivers whose license numbers were swiped, and offering them credit and identity theft protection. The company also said it is notifying regulators, and monitoring affected rider accounts for signs of fraud. How did hackers do it? The stolen data are thought to have been stored on an external server of Amazon Web Services -- a division of Amazon offering cloud data storage facilities. Two hackers gained access to it using the log-ins of Uber employees taken from an account at the software development platform, GitHub. What did Uber do wrong? Aside from the problem of safeguarding the data, Uber sought to keep the breach quiet. CEO Khosrowshahi -- who took over at the end of August -- has acknowledged wondering why it took Uber a year to make the breach public. He also admitted that the company failed in not immediately informing the users affected or the authorities. His predecessor, Uber´s co-founder Travis Kalanick, was advised of the breach shortly after it was discovered, according to a source familiar with the situation. Uber paid the hackers $100,000 to destroy the data, not telling riders or drivers whose information was at risk, the source said. Who is affected? A lot of people. While Uber has not said exactly which users were affected, the number of 57 million is enormous, considering that former CEO Travis Kalanick said in October 2016 -- roughly when the breach took place -- that Uber had 40 million users worldwide. Sean Sullivan, security adviser at Finnish company F-Secure, suggested that companies tend to downplay the number of people affected, while the hackers exaggerate their "booty". An outside party was needed to undertake an in-depth investigation, he said. Gerome Billois, cybersecurity specialist at consultancy Wavestone, said that nasty surprises or "aftershocks" could not be ruled out. "In the case of private individuals, we need to wait a bit," he said. What are the consequences for users? For the moment, not a lot, even if the volume of the data would represent a sizeable market value for cybercriminals. Users may perhaps receive a lot of spam or ads on their mobile phone. Experts quizzed by AFP pointed out, however, that with the names, email addresses and telephone numbers, hackers could orchestrate phishing campaigns by creating fake Uber accounts, asking users to "confirm" their banking details or to click on links that would allow viruses into their devices. What can you do? "Not a lot," said Jerome Robert, marketing chief at EclecticIQ, a Dutch company specialising in cyber threats. Users could try to protect their identity by providing the wrong date of birth, or a false telephone number. But "in the end, that won´t work because there are verification," he said. It may just be a matter of crossing your fingers and hoping for the best. We all more or less have to trust the apps we download. But don´t provide personal data to apps that aren´t trusted. At the very least, use an alternative email address for these sorts of services, not your main address. What are the consequences for Uber? Fines, certainly, especially as Uber sought to hide the breach. In the United States, Donald Trump´s administration might be more lenient than that of his predecessor Barack Obama, said Sean Sullivan of F-Secure. In Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation is scheduled to come into force in May 2018. Under that measure, companies that have lost personal data may be fined up to four percent of their revenues. In the case of Uber, this would be $260 million. Sullivan said Uber might find it more difficult to have its licence renewed in London, not to mention the bad publicity. "If they don´t pay a fine, they are going to pay a cost."
  3. Whatsapp users will no more have to fret over messages sent on chat windows they were not intended for. The messenger service has introduced a feature which will allow users to delete such messages sent to either a group or an individual chat. As stated on Whatsapp.com, the messages that one successfully deletes will be replaced with ?This message was deleted? in the recipients? chat. So if you see ?This message was deleted? in a chat, it means the sender deleted the message for everyone. However, a user cannot avail the opportunity of correcting their error hours after sending the wrong message. One can only delete the messages for everyone for up to seven minutes after sending it. Once the time is over, the window closes. There is no way to erase messages for everyone after seven minutes pass.
  4. WASHINGTON: Google said Tuesday it would offer stronger online security for "high risk" users who may be frequent targets of online attacks. The US technology titan said anyone with a personal Google account can enroll in the new "advanced protection," while noting that it will require users to "trade off a bit of convenience" for extra security. "We took this unusual step because there is an overlooked minority of our users that are at particularly high risk of targeted online attacks," said a Google security blog post. "For example, these might be campaign staffers preparing for an upcoming election, journalists who need to protect the confidentiality of their sources, or people in abusive relationships seeking safety." Google will require these users to log into their accounts with a physical USB key which will be part of two-factor authentication, to guard against fraudulent access. "An attacker who doesn´t have your security key is automatically blocked, even if they have your password," the statement said. Google will provide additional monitoring for these accounts and limit access to sensitive applications, aiming to protect against impersonation and "phishing" to gain access to an account. "Sometimes even the most careful and security-minded users are successfully attacked through phishing scams, especially if those phishing scams were individually targeted at the user in question," the company said. Phishing is the use of deception to gain confidential information such as usernames, passwords, bank account details and credit card numbers. In one of the most highly publicized phishing attacks, Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta gave up his password to a hacker, resulting in a series of embarrassing leaks during the 2016 presidential race.
  5. Facebook and Instagram users in some parts of the United States, Europe and Canada were unable to access their accounts on Wednesday as the social networking website faced technical issue. ?We?re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram. We?re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible,? a Facebook spokesperson told Reuters. Earlier in the day, DownDetector.com, which monitors outages, showed that there were over 12,000 incidents of people reporting issues with using the website. Fifty percent of the people reported having trouble logging in while 40 percent complained that they faced total blackout issues and the remaining 10 percent faced problems with pictures, Downdetector said on its website report.
  6. Photo: courtesy WhatsApp Ever regretted sending a text on Whatsapp? Well, now you will have the option of deleting a sent text. WhatsApp is testing a new feature, ?Delete for Everyone?, which will allow users to delete their sent messages. However, the message can only be deleted if the receiver has not read it. The messaging app is testing the feature both on iOS and Android, according to famous WhatsApp leaker WABetaInfo. WhatsApp just released its picture-in-picture feature for its users across the globe. The feature allows users to text message and video chat at the same time.
  7. WhatsApp finally rolled out its picture-in-picture feature for video calls. The new update allows users to return to the home screen or any other app during a video call. However, the feature will be available for devices on Andriod 8.0 Oreo. The PiP feature allows users to text and video call at the same time. Photo: Android police The instant messaging app has been testing the picture-in-picture for video calls since July. The testing was being done in its beta programme version, though it was not announced when the feature will be officially launched. Moreover, the app is also looking out to expand its platform and make itself more constructive and productive. Hence, the messaging app, which is owned by Facebook, is planning on introducing a Whatsapp business app. The tool will allow businesses to connect and communicate with its consumers. The feature seeks to boost the productivity of different businesses.
  8. Demonstrators across India protested Lankesh's murder. Photo: AFP An online campaign was launched against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after it surfaced that he is following Twitter account users who appeared to celebrate and justify the recent murder of a prominent Indian journalist, AlJazeera reported. Editor of the weekly Gauri Lankesh Patrike publication, Gauri Lankesh, was shot dead by unidentified attackers outside her house in Bangalore on Tuesday. #BlockNarendraModi was the top trend in the country on Wednesday night through to Thursday, with users demanding that Modi un-follow the handles and apologise. Modi has yet to condemn Lankesh's death. Journalists, politicians, and activists across India sharply denounced the murder. Indian users decided to block the premier after it surfaced that many of the trolls were followed by leaders of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), including several claiming Modi as their follower. One of the tweets celebrating Lankesh?s murder was sent by user Ashish Mishra, who wrote in response to a news story about the journalist?s death: jaisi karni vaisi bharni (you reap what you sow). Another Twitter account followed by Modi, Nikhil Dadhich, equated Gauri, an outspoken critic of right-wing groups, to a "bitch". His tweet, written in the Hindi language, was apparently deleted later. Its closest translation reads as: "It took a bitch to die a dog's death, for all pups to howl in the same tune". Many Indians registered their anger by blocking Modi, who is one of the most popular world leaders on Twitter with 33.8 million followers. Several groups, including the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), have demanded a thorough investigation into the killing, while a Special Investigating Team has been tasked with probing the murder. The comments against Lankesh drew the attention of Ravi Shankar Prasad, minister of law and justice and of information technology, who condemned the trolls, many of them ruling party supporters, for expressing happiness at the killing of the journalist. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, defended Modi for following trolls. Amit Malviya, BJP's head of IT Cell, refused to comment on the issue but referred Al Jazeera to a party statement released on Thursday that dubbed the controversy as "mischievous and contorted". "PM Modi is the only leader who freely engages with people on social media platforms," the statement said. "The PM following someone is not a character certificate of a person and is not in anyway a guarantee of how a person would conduct himself."
  9. Facebook has turned to its sister application, Instagram, to boost the popularity of the 'Stories' feature. The latest test feature was spotted by some of the users including Next Web?s Matt Navarra and Twitter user @mruiandre. The users noticed that they were given an option to share their Instagram Stories on Facebook. This was followed by Instagram confirming that this feature is currently being tested. Facebook also has the Stories feature but it failed to gain the popularity of the Instagram counterpart. However, the sharing option will allow the users to have their Stories available on both the social media sites. Since long, Instagram users are given the option to share their pictures and video posts on Facebook. Interestingly, no content travels the other direction. The Stories feature, which is a copy of the Snapchat feature, was added to Instagram in August 2016.
  10. Twitter has enabled 'Night Mode' for desktops, a feature which was previously available on iOS and Android devices. The feature was rolled out on Wednesday but has yet to reach all user accounts, hence some users may not have the option to activate it instantly. To enable the new feature, users must click on their profile photo and select night mode. Night mode turns Twitter's usual vibrant white and blue background into a navy blue dark screen with an icon of the moon on it. Night mode was rolled for iOS and Android users in July and August last year, respectively. The feature is expected to ease eye strain while using the social media platform in a low-light environment.
  11. Apple is about to launch their brand new phone soon and even though Samsung has launched two absolutely beautiful smartphones, iPhone users are not going to be swayed easily. A survey was published recently which paints a picture for companies who are trying to sway iPhone users towards their products. The grim picture painted by the survey suggests that 70% of iPhone users won't even think of moving to another device. (c) BCCL The survey was conducted earlier this month which involved asking 2,117 adults who use smartphones on a daily basis. The result of the survey indicated that Apple users are going nowhere. 80% of the adults said that they plan to stick with the iPhone and 47 percent of the audience owned at least 4 iPhones in their lifetime. However, the number that is most astonishing is that the at least 70% of the sample audience said their next phone would be another iPhone and they would not even think of buying anything else. (c) YouTube More than 65% percent of the people who were part of this survey said they feel that the iPhone is the best phone one can buy. Most of the respondents also said that they would find switching from the iOS platform to Android a bit too tedious and would prefer to not go through that inconvenience. The next line of iPhones is expected to have a similar design to the current generation and another model would have an OLED screen and a design overhaul. The rumoured iPhone 8 is expected to have a new bezel-less screen and augmented reality features. The iPhone 8 is expected to cost $1,000 and at least 67 percent of the respondents who intended to upgrade to a new iPhone said that the price tag is too expensive. However, at least 40% of the respondents intend to buy it no matter how much it costs. Source: cNet
  12. Tech giants Apple and Amazon, too, have moved to limit their customers' access to VPNs in China in what has been seen as a voluntary move to get ahead of the impending crackdown Photo: AFP Beijing: Enterprising internet users in China fear the tools they use to tunnel through the country's "Great Firewall" may soon disappear, as Beijing tightens its grip on the web. Tens of millions of people are estimated to use Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to bypass Chinese internet restrictions -- getting access to blocked websites such as Facebook and Twitter. Beijing has for years turned a blind eye to these holes in its Great Firewall, but recent events suggest the virtual tunnels may soon be bricked up. In January China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced it would be banning the use of unlicensed providers of the services. In the months since the rule's announcement, rumours have swirled that a crackdown was coming, but there was little clarity on what exactly the rule meant and how, or even if, it would be implemented. In the past few weeks, however, omens of significant tightening seem to be everywhere. Several luxury hotels in Beijing have said they will stop using the tools, which once provided unfiltered Internet as a convenience to their customers. On Thursday, a cloud service provider in the capital notified users that it would practise shutting down and reporting VPN providers on the orders of Beijing's Public Security bureau. Tech giants Apple and Amazon, too, have moved to limit their customers' access to the tools in China in what has been seen as a voluntary move to get ahead of the impending crackdown. On Sunday, Apple said it was removing a number of the programs from its app store, while Amazon's Chinese partner said that customers would no longer be allowed to use "illegal" VPNs on its cloud service. "There have been many rounds of government murmurings about VPN crackdowns, and foreign and Chinese businesses had grown used to only minor or temporary restrictions," said Graham Webster, a senior researcher scholar at Yale Law School. But "this time appears different." 'You cannot lock the heart' For now, however, it still remains unclear who will be able to access VPNs and under what circumstances, a situation that has left both companies and regular users on tenterhooks. Ordinary people have reacted to the new rules with a mixture of annoyance and quiet defiance. "You've blocked the last way to watch US TV dramas, as well as my Facebook friends!" one user of China's Twitter-like Weibo platform said after the Apple announcement. "You can lock my cellphone, but you cannot lock my heart." Firms are casting around for information about the developments and have expressed alarm at the potential impact on the way they do business. In a statement, the European Chamber of Commerce told AFP it "has not seen any updated official document concerning restrictions on VPN use by companies," adding that in a recent survey of its members almost half expressed concern that the "continued strengthening of measures to tighten Internet control and access are having an even bigger negative impact on their companies". "Our members' success depends on instantaneous access to information worldwide, and the ability to freely communicate with affiliates, suppliers and customers around the world," William Zarit, Chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China said in a statement to AFP. "Recent regulatory developments, including limiting VPN use, have created uncertainty for cross-border data communication." Apple has come under fire for bowing to the rules, but in an earnings call Tuesday CEO Tim Cook said the firm had to follow local laws. He said Apple was "hopeful that over time the restrictions we're seeing are lessened because innovation really requires freedom to collaborate and communicate". 'Tighten Internet control' Analysts said that Beijing was likely not looking to choke off VPNS completely, but was instead seeking to control them more tightly. James Gong, an expert on Chinese cyber law at Herbert Smith Freehills, said that the regulations are not targeted at companies. The government can "shut things down, but that's not their purpose," he said. Instead "they want to drive all the traffic through the network operators so all of the connections will be transparent to them". Paul Triolo, head of global technology at the Eurasia Group, said he believes that the ultimate goal is not to cut off all VPNs but to "get visibility on (their) use so that they know what is going in and out and can turn off selectively if they want to or need to".

  14. A mountain scenery made on Paint, shared by user Valprine on Twitter It?s not yet the end! Microsoft has announced Paint will stay alive, after an outpouring of love across the internet managed to convince the company not to axe its 32-year-old program. The tech giant had announced on Monday its age-old Paint feature would be either removed or no longer developed, triggering an outcry as loyal users grieved over the potential demise of their old companion, which has been part of the Windows operating system since its launch in 1985. Microsoft Paint to be killed off after 32 years Paint has been signalled for death having been added to the ?features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update? list. Persuaded by the love, Microsoft has now decided to save MS Paint by putting it on the Windows Store. ?Today, we?ve seen an incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint. If there?s anything we learned, it?s that after 32 years, MS Paint has a lot of fans. It?s been amazing to see so much love for our trusty old app,? Megan Saunders, Microsoft?s general manager of the ?3D for Everyone? initiative, wrote in a blog post. ?Amidst today?s commentary around MS Paint we wanted to take this opportunity to set the record straight, clear up some confusion and share some good news. Paint 3D ? the new app for creativity, also available for free with the Windows 10 Creators Update, will continue to get new feature updates. In addition to the new 3D capabilities, many of the MS Paint features people know and love like photo editing, line and curve tools, and 2D creation are in Paint 3D,? she stated. This basically means Paint will no longer be available by default on Windows and work and enterprise machines, but users will be able to download Microsoft Paint from the Windows Store for free.
  15. I was visiting the United States last week and I could not help but notice that almost everyone was an iPhone user. Maybe it was California, the spiritual home of Apple, however, there were a few people I came across at cafes and bars who have not embraced the Apple life yet. During the course of my casual conversation, many of the people who didn't own any Apple products were using either the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the Google Pixel. Being curious and inquisitive about their choice, I wanted to know what they thought about Apple iPhone users since they are surrounded by them at all times. And here's what I gathered: 1.The iPhone Is A Status Symbol (c) Thinkstock Sure the iPhone costs a lot of money and is also a way to judge somebody's cool factor. Having said that, the Apple brand has now become one of the most revered, sought after companies and is perceived as a status symbol brand. Similar to fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton or a luxury watch like a Rolex, the iPhone is now considered a must-have device or even a fashion statement. 2. They Aren't As Intelligent As Android Users (c) Thinkstock One of the most insulting presumptions Android users make is that iPhone users are not intelligent enough to run an Android smartphone. To be honest, I feel that this is probably a ridiculous thing one can presume about an iPhone user. Sure Android phones work in a different way and have other features that may not be available on the iPhone. However, working on the iPhone is no easy task either. Transferring music, apps or even making a ringtone can be a complicated process. Yes, the iPhone's iOS is easier to learn than Android, however, it depends on how one perceives it. To be honest adjusting to an Android smartphone is as simple as adjusting to iOS and this presumption about iPhone users being dumb is not warranted. (As a tech journalist, I have to use both platforms every day) 3. iPhone Users Don't Like To Mess Around With Their Device (c) Thinkstock Android users have one advantage over the iPhone and this they can customise many aspects and functionality of their smartphone. They like to explore their device and try to find out how to make use of their device most effectively. Android users believe that iPhone fans are completely fine with not tinkering with their device and are not interested in making their smartphones more personal. 4. iPhone Users Will Buy Anything Apple Makes Thanks To Their Marketing (c) Thinkstock Android users honestly believe that iPhone fanboys will blindly buy anything Apple makes. Yes, the iPhone is probably the highest selling smartphone in the world but it doesn't necessarily mean that Apple fanboys will buy anything the company makes. To be honest, when was the last time you bought something that was advertised on TV? If that were the case, I would have bought a lot of ridiculous things by now. Android users believe that Apple fanboys have been brainwashed by the company's advertising tactics which isn't entirely true. Not all Apple fans buy everything the company makes because if it were true, the Apple Airpods would have sold like hot cakes. 5. They Just Buy The iPhone Because Of Famous People (c) YouTube It is also assumed that since most celebrities, public figures and musicians use the iPhone, Apple fans simply fall for that. In fact, many Android users believe that people buy Apple products solely because of Steve Jobs. We all know who Steve Jobs was and he was one of the most recognisable faces in the world and probably still is. (c) YouTube Many Android users believe that people buy an iPhone only because it has something to do with Steve Jobs' ethos 6. iPhone Users Feel Intimidated By Choice (c) YouTube Almost every smartphone in the market (except the iPhone) runs on Android. There are a large number of devices that utilise the Android ecosystem and some of them are hard to even remember. The iPhone is the same all across the world, however, each Android phone is different from the other. The plethora of choices out there does not make it easy for an iPhone user to switch devices easily. The iPhone is the same all over the world and they often get turned off by the number of choices they have. 7. The iOS Ecosystem Is Hard To Let Go (c) YouTube The iOS ecosystem is one of the most comprehensive and inclusive ecosystems that keep everything synced together. If you own multiple Apple devices, you can easily sync pictures, music and transfer files amongst each device. You can even control certain applications with the Apple Watch or the Airpods. Android users believe that the iOS ecosystem has made it so difficult for iPhone users to switch that they tend to just stick with Apple products and refuse to even try Android smartphones. Android users may have gotten something right about their criticisms regarding iPhone users and some of them are affected by more than one of these assumptions. However, it all depends on personal choice and what attributes that iPhone users can't see in themselves. The iPhone is meticulously crafted and is beautifully engineered. Its design is something many manufacturers have tried to replicate and it is probably one of the best smartphones ever built. On the flip-side, Android's open platform has their own share of attributes that make it special. However, a closed and integrated platform like the iOS makes the iPhone's experience a bit more responsive and better and the same thing cannot be said about every Android smartphone.
  16. The Twitter logo is displayed on a screen on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York City, US, September 28, 2016. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File Photo Twitter Inc, in its latest step to curb abusive behaviour on its platform, rolled out new features on Monday to help users disable notifications from accounts that they want to avoid. The microblogging website said its "advanced filter settings" will now have options for users to mute notifications from accounts that they do not follow as well as from accounts that do not follow them. Users can also filter lower-quality content from notifications such as content that appears to be automated and mute notifications related to certain words and phrases. Twitter had said in March that it would introduce new filtering options for notifications to allow users to limit what they see from certain types of accounts, such as those that do not have a profile photo. Twitter and rival Facebook Inc have been facing a barrage of criticism for failing to tackle cyber-bullying, fake news, and extremist propaganda on their platforms.
  17. For all those who were hoping Instagram would stop turning into a Snapchat clone, here?s news for you: Instagram has added a new exciting feature for its users, enabling them to reply to Instagram Stories with photos and videos. Sounds familiar, doesn?t it? But wait, it doesn?t end there! Along with the photos and videos, users can now make use of any of the creative tools in the Instagram camera such as Boomerang, face filters, the reverse effect, and the various stickers which can be resized or repositioned in order to reply to the Instagram Stories.

  20. A 3D-printed logo for Twitter is seen in this picture illustration made in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 26, 2016. REUTERS A free-speech institute on Tuesday sent a letter to President Donald Trump demanding the prolific tweeter unblock certain Twitter (TWTR.N) users on grounds the practice violates the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Trump's @realDonaldTrump account recently blocked a number of accounts that replied to his tweets with commentary that criticised, mocked or disagreed with his actions. Twitter users are unable to see or respond to tweets from accounts that block them. Trump hilariously challenges Twitterati to find 'true meaning of 'covfefe'' The original message, which seemed to have been the start of a Trump complaint about media coverage, soon became a top trend on Twitter The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University in New York said in its letter that the blocking suppressed speech in a public forum protected by the Constitution. The White House did not respond to a request for comment. Twitter Inc said it had no comment. Alex Abdo, the institute's senior staff attorney, likened Twitter to a modern form of town hall meeting or public comment periods for government agency proposals, both venues where US law requires even-handed treatment of speech. Eric Goldman, a Santa Clara University law professor who focuses on internet law, said that previous cases involving politicians blocking users on Facebook (FB.O) supported the Knight Institute's position. If the institute should sue, Trump could claim his @realDonaldTrump account is for personal use and separate from his official duties as president, Goldman said. But he called that defence "laughable." Trump also has a presidential @POTUS Twitter account. The Knight Institute said its arguments would apply with "equal force" to both accounts. Trump's Twitter use has drawn intense media attention for his unvarnished commentary about his agenda and attacks on critics. His tweets are often retweeted tens of thousands of times and can shape the news cycle. Legal experts have said his tweets may directly affect policy. A chain of postings about his travel ban may hamper his administration's defence in courts. The letter said Trump or his aides blocked the accounts @AynRandPaulRyan and @joepabike, belonging to songwriter Holly O'Reilly and professional cyclist and author Joseph M. Papp, respectively. O'Reilly was blocked on May 28 after posting a brief animated clip of Pope Francis appearing uncomfortable during a meeting with Trump with a caption, "this is pretty much how the whole world sees you," the letter said. Papp learned he was blocked on June 4 after responding to a Trump tweet with a tweet labelling the president a "#fake leader." The accounts are just two of several that have been blocked by Trump or his aides, Abdo said.

Being the tenth-anniversary edition, the iPhone 8 is expected to have a brand new design and substantial changes to celebrate the occasion. © YouTube Some of these significant changes include an OLED display, an embedded Touch ID scanner, 3D sensing dual-front facing cameras with iris or facial recognition and Apple’s next-generation A11 processor. There are also other rumours of Apple flirting with augmented reality functionality. These new upgrades may just reinvigorate the iPhone brand and may increase sales that Apple has been hoping for. As for now, though, Apple is in a very comfortable position due to the 92 % of upgraders they have in their pool.
