    Facebook vs Australia: Social Media giant plays hardball & steps in it's own excrement. 

    Looks like Zuckerberg figured if it could take down a Super Power President, why not an entire country! 

    "It didn’t just block content from news pages: Australian users woke up Thursday to find the accounts of fire and emergency services, domestic violence charities, and government health agencies affected, too. Facebook is reinstating pages that it didn’t intend to block, but the initial response will be costly for the company." 

    Side note: Not to ignore the UK is censoring the hell of it's own peoples; they just don't want BigTech telling THEM what to do.

    Blockchain-based startup Presearch has released a decentralized search engine to help provide a more private alternative to Google. Taking a play out of privacy-centric web browser Brave’s book, it also rewards its users with it native crypto token, PRE. The Ethereum-based project uses searches powered by independent nodes to help protect the identity of the people who make queries for data. Moreover, it puts a dent in the monopolistic power of Google to organize and rank results.

    Last year, late at night, President Donald Trump posted the following on Twitter: “Despite the constant negative press covfefe” 

    The President subsequently tweeted, “Who can figure out the true meaning of “covfefe” ??? Enjoy!” and then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer told questioning reporters, “The President and a small group of people know exactly what he meant.” 

    Suddenly, “covefefe” was no longer a mere typo. It became a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma...

    If you googled the word “covefefe” you couldn’t find it.  

    Google had erased it!

    Leaked documents show that Google raced to erase the meaning of the Arabic work “Covfefe” as soon as the President tweeted his reference to the word.

    Google didn’t want anyone to know that the word “Covfefe” meant “I will stand up”

    Apple CEO Tim Cook is calling out fellow tech industry titans for violating users' privacy rights and expressing concern about how much time iPhone customers and their children are spending using Apple products.

    Cook also mentioned Facebook and Google after criticizing sites that sell people's data, saying such sites can obtain more information in secret than a 'peeping Tom.'

    His highly-critical comments were made during an exclusive ABC News interview with Diane Sawyer that aired on Friday.

    The 58-year-old leader of the world's most profitable tech company was discussing the issue of online privacy and ways to help Americans spend less time looking at smartphone screens during a conversation about how technology is damaging people's lives.

    Apple CEO Tim Cook called online privacy a "crisis" in an  interview with ABC News, reaffirming the company's stance on privacy as companies like Facebook and Google have come under increased scrutiny regarding their handling of consumer data.

     "Privacy in itself has become a crisis," Cook told  ABC's Diane Sawyer. "It's of that proportion — a crisis." 

    Unlike companies such as Google and Facebook, Apple's business isn't focused on advertising, and therefore it does not benefit from collecting data to improve ad targeting.

    Scammers stole over $100 million from Facebook and Google in a creative way: They emailed the tech giants and asked for it.

    Evaldas Rimasauskas, 50, pleaded guilty last week to wire fraud after helping to orchestrate a scheme that included setting up a fake business and sending phishing emails to employees of Facebook and Google. The scheme ultimately duped those multibillion-dollar companies out of more than $100 million in total between 2013 and 2015, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

    How the phishing scam worked

    Prosecutors accused Rimasauskas in 2016 of incorporating a company that posed as another company, Taiwan-based Quanta Computer — which actually does business with Facebook and Google. Rimasauskas served as the  “sole member of the board of directors” of the fake company and “opened, maintained and controlled various accounts at banks” in Latvia and Cyprus in the name of the fake company, authorities said.

    In the scam, Rimasauskas and his co-conspirators created fairly convincing forgery emails using fake email accounts, which looked like they were sent by employees of the actual Quanta in Taiwan. They sent phishing emails with fake invoices to employees at Facebook and Google who  “regularly conducted multimillion-dollar transactions” with Quanta, and those employees responded by paying out more than $100 million to the fake company’s bank accounts, prosecutors said.
