  3. Google shuts Spaces, the content-sharing app you probably never heard ofFri, 24 Feb 2017 14:15:00 -0800
    Last year Google announced a new app called Spaces with a simple goal: simplify the way we share things with people online. Sort of like a virtual room where you could connect with people to engage in specific topic of conversation, the experimental service was one of many in Googles catalogue that failed to gain many users. To the surprise of no one, Google has now announced it will be shuttering Spaces. In a post on Google+, product manager John Kilcine broke the news, saying that while Google has learned a lot about how people come together to share ideas and content around any topic, Spaces will be moving into read-only mode in the coming weeks before shutting down its iOS and Android apps completely on April 17.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  8. FCC puts the brakes on ISP privacy rules it just passed in OctoberFri, 24 Feb 2017 10:43:00 -0800
    The new chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission will seek a stay on privacy rules for broadband providers that the agency just passed in October. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will ask for either a full commission vote on the stay before parts of the rules take effect next Thursday or he will instruct FCC staff to delay part of the rules pending a commission vote, a spokesman said Friday. The rules, passed when the FCC had a Democraticmajority,require broadband providers to receive opt-in customer permission to share sensitive personal information, including web-browsing history, geolocation, and financial details, with third parties. Without the stay, the opt-in requirements were scheduled to take effect next week.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

    The lawsuit is over, but the ongoing saga between ZeniMax and Facebook-owned Oculus VR just got even more serious. After winning a $500 million judgement against Oculus in early February, Zenimax is now asking to block Oculus from using any Zenimax code in Oculus products, Reuters reports. The request is part of Zenimaxs proposed judgement and final injunction for the recently decided case. In the court case, Zenimax was awarded $500 million for a variety of issues: $200 million for violating a non-disclosure agreement, $50 million for copyright infringement, and a combined $250 million against three former and current Oculus employees for false designation of origin. The request to halt sales of Oculus products relies on the copyright infringement decision.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
