Oprawa ślubna / How Google's hot air balloon surprised its creators
« dnia: Luty 24, 2021, 05:45:18 am  »

Algorithms using artificial intelligence are discovering unexpected tricks to solve problems that astonish their developers. But it is also raising concerns about our ability to control them.
he gaggle of Google employees peered at their computer screens in bewilderment. They had spent many months honing an algorithm designed to steer an unmanned hot air balloon all the way from Puerto Rico to Peru. But something was wrong. The balloon, controlled by its machine mind, kept veering off course.

Salvatore Candido of Google's now-defunct Project Loon venture, which aimed to bring internet access to remote areas via the balloons, couldn't explain the craft’s trajectory. His colleagues manually took control of the system and put it back on track.

It was only later that they realised what was happening. Unexpectedly, the artificial intelligence (AI) on board the balloon had learned to recreate an ancient sailing technique first developed by humans centuries, if not thousands of years, ago. "Tacking" involves steering a vessel into the wind and then angling outward again so that progress in a zig-zag, roughly in the desired direction, can still be made.

Under unfavourable weather conditions, the self-flying balloons had learned to tack all by themselves. The fact they had done this, unprompted, surprised everyone, not least the researchers working on the project. pg

"We quickly realised we'd been outsmarted when the first balloon allowed to fully execute this technique set a flight time record from Puerto Rico to Peru," wrote Candido in a blog post about the project. "I had never simultaneously felt smarter and dumber at the same time."

This is just the sort of thing that can happen when AI is left to its own devices. Unlike traditional computer programs, AIs are designed to explore and develop novel approaches to tasks that their human engineers have not explicitly told them about.

But while learning how to do these tasks, sometimes AIs come up with an approach so inventive that it can astonish even the people who work with such systems all the time. That can be a good thing, but it could also make things controlled by AIs dangerously unpredictable – robots and self-driving cars could end up making decisions that put humans in harm's way.

Patrick Bamford scored his 13th goal of the season to help Leeds end a run of back-to-back defeats to extend Southampton's own winless run to a far more worrying eight matches.

The striker struck early in the second half, timing his run to perfection to beat offside and latch on to Tyler Roberts' through-ball before firing a low shot into the far corner.

A neat Stuart Dallas finish from the edge of the box and Raphinha's superb free-kick sealed the points.

Prior to the opener Leeds had been somewhat on the back foot, with Jan Vestegaard and Nathan Tella spurning good early chances for the Saints, who were also aggrieved at two refereeing decisions.

The first was a penalty awarded on the pitch after Tella went down in the box, but rightly overruled with VAR showing the forward kicked defender Diego Llorente and not the other way round.

They were more unhappy that a quickly taken free-kick and Che Adams finish that was ruled out, with Andre Marriner indicating that he had not blown his whistle to recommence play.

The home side could have all-but wrapped up the points in the five minutes after the opener, but Roberts fired inches wide before Bamford saw a shot well-saved by Alex McCarthy.

The Saints goalkeeper also saved brilliantly with his foot to stop Llorente scoring his first Leeds goal from close range.

Danny Ings started on the bench for the Saints and was introduced with half an hour to play to little effect.

To rub salt in the visitor's wounds, Oriol Romeu, who had earlier prevented Raphinha shooting after he had broken away with a superb sliding tackle, added to his side's injury problems by limping off.

The win takes Leeds up to 10th in the table with 35 points from their 25 games. Southampton are five points worse off and eight clear of Fulham, whose form has been picking up as the Saints' has been crumbling.

Action and reaction from Leeds v Southampton in the Premier League
First goal crucial as Leeds underline top-flight credentials
If Ralph Hasenhuttl's Saints are to arrest the slide, they must now do so on the road, with each of their next three fixtures being away from St Mary's - at Everton, Sheffield United and Manchester City.

They came into this away fixture - billed by Hasenhuttl as their "most intense game" - with some confidence after taking a point off Chelsea courtesy of a battling display.

And they matched fire with fire early on, pressing high and forcing Leeds into numerous errors on a slippery pitch Bamford described afterwards as more like a winter wonderland than a Premier League surface.

However, as the game wore on and chances went begging, it was clear that the first goal would be crucial.

Bamford's low finish - the first truly incisive strike of the game - proved that, handing Leeds the momentum and adding further weight to the striker's England case.

With Saints now forced to commit more men forward in pursuit of a goal, it left Leeds the space to exploit, which they did with aplomb.

Switching Raphinha to the left and replacing Jack Harrison with Helder Costa gave the Saints full-backs a new problem they were unable to solve.

It was the substitute who set up Dallas for the second goal, which the Northern Irish international dispatched with the tip of his boot.

And Raphinha added the icing with a superb whipped free-kick into the bottom corner after Costa had been dragged down on the edge of the box. pg

Nobody at Leeds will say so, but with 35 points on the board they must surely now be safe from making an immediate return to the Championship.

Southampton still have work to do.

Olivier Giroud's spectacular overhead kick gave Chelsea an outstanding victory against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last 16 first leg in Bucharest.

Giroud's superb moment of improvisation not only delivered the win and a vital away goal but also continued new manager Thomas Tuchel's unbeaten start at Chelsea and put them in pole position to reach the quarter-finals.

In a tie played in Romania instead of Spain because of Covid-19 restrictions, Giroud demonstrated athleticism and technique to send an acrobatic effort beyond Atletico keeper Jan Oblak in the 68th minute. The goal was originally ruled out for offside before a video assistant referee review revealed the ball had bounced off Atletico defender Mario Hermoso.

It was reward for Chelsea's more progressive style in the face of the usual attritional approach from Diego Simeone's Atletico. They rarely troubled Tuchel's side who comfortably kept the in-form but increasingly frustrated Luis Suarez at bay.

Chelsea have now gone eight matches unbeaten since Tuchel succeeded Frank Lampard while Giroud is emerging as their Champions League talisman after scoring all four goals in the group-phase victory against Sevilla and a last-minute winner away to Rennes.

Tuchel was quick to praise the impact of 34-year-old World Cup winner Giroud and said: "If you see him on a daily basis, you cannot be surprised. He is totally fit, his body is in shape and his physicality is on top level.

"He trains like a 20-year-old, like a 24-year-old. He is a guy who has a good mixture of serious and joy in training. He is always positive and it is a big factor for the group."

Football Daily podcast: Giroud's magic and magnificent Musiala
Tuchel's biggest statement yet
Tuchel's Chelsea have been efficient rather than spectacular since the German coach was appointed following Lampard's departure in January - but there will be no complaints after the most impressive result of his brief time in charge.

Chelsea were regarded as underdogs in this last-16 tie against the La Liga leaders but apart from a couple of early scares - keeper Edouard Mendy miscontrolled early in the game before Suarez flashed the ball across the face of goal - they were in charge.

They showed more ambition than a strangely lethargic and even more cautious than usual Atletico.

It will increase Chelsea's confidence that they have appointed a coach who is comfortable operating at the highest levels after reaching the Champions League final with Paris St-Germain last season and impressing at Borussia Dortmund.

And once again Giroud proved what an intelligent and talented player he is with a piece of ingenuity that settled a tight game to give Chelsea high hopes going into the second leg.

Giroud has proved time and again he is invaluable to Chelsea's cause, demonstrating what a bargain buy he was at £18m from Arsenal in January 2018.

It was also a good night for young England forward Callum Hudson-Odoi, who performed creditably after the debate surrounding his substitution after coming on as a substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Southampton.

Hudson-Odoi was replaced again after 79 minutes in Bucharest but this was after a performance full of energy and hard work that will have delighted taskmaster Tuchel on a highly satisfying night for Chelsea.

Atletico still pose a threat - but this was poor
This was a dismal showing from an Atletico Madrid side who have been excellent domestically in heading Real Madrid, Sevilla and Barcelona.

Atletico adopted a more conservative approach than Chelsea despite this being their 'home' leg, albeit on neutral territory, and the old streetfighter Suarez was reduced to familiar moments of gamesmanship in a bid to unsettle his opponents. It was all to no avail as the Premier League side held firm.

It was a game that pointed to Chelsea building the platform for progress in the second leg but Atletico's resilience, ability to fight the odds and love of being the underdog still makes them a threat.

Simeone will need to inspire a big performance from his players in the second leg but they can never be written off, as Liverpool - rampant in the Premier League at the time - painfully discovered when they were eliminated by Atletico over two legs at this stage last season, completed by a 3-2 win at Anfield after coming from 2-0 down. pg

Chelsea achieved a superb result and their destiny is now in their own hands but Tuchel will not, and cannot, allow for any complacency against an Atletico team who may just revel in the task facing them in the second leg.

Baroness Sue Campbell says the FA wouldn't let what happened to Fatuga-Dada occur now.

"We'd find a way now," the FA's director of women's football told BBC Sport.

"When I first came into the FA five years ago, there were very few people focused on the women's game. Now we have somebody in every division of the football association with a key leading focus on the women's game."

Campbell says one challenge is not having the resources of the men's game. But she says that now women's football has the "volume through participation", the FA needs to redesign the pathway for its emerging talent.

The FA is also working with the EFL Trust to carry out more talent identification work in inner-city areas and has provided scholarships for players who need financial support. It says it is already seeing more ethnic diversity in the England youth teams.

The teenage drop-off
The FA also has an Asian Women's Advisory Group, and through its Wildcats programme for girls aged 5-11, it has trained coaches from the communities it is targeting - so that girls have relatable role models. There is also a new teenage equivalent programme.

But when the drop-off rate from sport for teenage girls is so high anyway, what is being done to make sure all the FA's work with youth is translating into the elite level of football?

"We've developed a programme for clubs, which is about helping clubs think about what it means to be girl-friendly and inclusive," Campbell said. pg

"It doesn't just mean you run a women's team. It means the whole ambience of who greets them, what the changing rooms look like, what is going to help them come along, feel that they belong, and that they're part of it.

"If you go that first time and it feels uncomfortable, most girls don't have the confidence to go back again."

So is it just a case of this work trickling down and waiting for the impact to be made? Or does the problem run deeper than that?

On Tuesday, England women play Northern Ireland in their first game for almost 12 months - a match introducing the new interim manager Hege Riise.

Notably, however - with Demi Stokes injured and Nikita Parris unable to travel because of Covid-19 restrictions - there will be only one non-white player in the squad of 21. Bristol City forward Ebony Salmon has been handed her first senior England call-up, after the initial all-white squad was announced.

Compared with the men's game, the pool of BAME players to choose from in women's football is a lot smaller.

At the Women's World Cup in 2019, Stokes and Parris were the only non-white players in the England squad. In the men's World Cup squad the year before, there were 13 players of colour - celebrated as "representing modern, multicultural England".

While women's football has grown exponentially in the past few years, the number of black and mixed-race players in an England squad for a major tournament has decreased from six in 2007 to two in 2019.

The statistics on BAME representation in English football can be difficult to pin down. Indeed, the football authorities faced criticism last year for not monitoring the number of elite players in the men's or women's games.

But Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling, speaking to the BBC's Newsnight programme last year about the lack of BAME coaches and leaders in English football, indicated that "there's something like 500 players in the Premier League and a third of them are black".

That figure was backed up when Paul Elliott, chairman of the FA's inclusion advisory board, spoke to the BBC around the same time.

It is estimated, though, that the proportion of BAME players in the Women's Super League is lower - at between 10-15% BAME players in the WSL.

"Right now, to be honest, it's not inclusive enough. And it's not diverse enough, and we know it," said Baroness Sue Campbell, the Football Association's director of women's football.

Accessibility & opportunity
Aston Villa's Anita Asante, 35, who has 71 England caps, says one reason there are so few BAME players in elite women's football is inaccessibility.

"It's getting more difficult to get the right accessibility for disadvantaged groups of young girls, especially in inner cities," she told BBC Sport.

"When you're seeing so few [BAME players] making it to the elite level you have to question if the system is really working. Does it need reviewing to find where the gaps are?" pg

Kay Cossington, the FA's head of women's player development and talent, told She Kicks magazine in 2020 that "inclusivity was compromised as we attempted to turn more professional. We had 52 centres of excellence; that was too many for the depth of talent at the time".

With 52 centres reduced to 30 - and with many of the centres that remained based in rural areas - a lot of the BAME players from big cities were travelling two or three hours to get to training. Millwall, for example, had trained in Lewisham and Southwark, but moved to Bromley where facilities were better.

Zaręczyny / Five sports documentaries to watch on BBC iPlayer
« dnia: Luty 24, 2021, 05:39:45 am  »

Looking for something to do this weekend? Well, we're here to bring you five more sports stories you can watch on BBC iPlayer.

This week: a scandal that shook figure skating, personal testimonies from footballers on the receiving end of racial abuse, a touching tale about wrestling, bringing football back to Bury, and a tour with the Great Britain Lions.

Shame in The Game: Racism in Football
This BBC Three documentary came out in February 2020, but the experiences of Premier League players Anthony Martial, Axel Tuanzebe and Romaine Sawyers this week show it remains depressingly relevant.

The film is made up of personal testimonies from players at different levels of the men's and women's games in England. Among them, Inih Effiong describes fans making racist gestures at him while he played for Dover Athletic, and former Tottenham defender Renee Hector speaks about the horrific abuse she was sent after suffering the first recorded case of racist abuse in women's professional football.

It shows the devastating impact the abuse can have on the players and their families, and asks what can be done to stop it.

Watch Shame in The Game: Racism in Football
Bury: Bringing Football Back
When financially stricken Bury FC were expelled from the English Football League in 2019, the local community was devastated.

A group of fans decided to set up a phoenix club - Bury AFC - and got the team playing. During a global pandemic.

But while some in the town are excited to have football back, others see it as disrespectful to the original club.
This is one of the most touching series you'll watch this year.

James lost his sight as a child, Pocket has PTSD, and Marcus - who is autistic - struggles to deal with his anger issues. All three are training to become wrestlers with Zak Knight, whose sister Paige is a massive WWE star pg

But Knight doesn't just train these youngsters how to drop-kick an opponent - he's sort of a life coach too. And it's therapy for him, as wrestling has helped with his depression.

Russell believes tackling homophobia is a battle that can be won. But he understands other areas of discrimination that need to be addressed too - racism, sexism, religious hate - all are linked.

He believes he's in a unique position to play an active role. Bisexual. Black. And in an interracial relationship.

Russell said that shows the "beauty" of intersectionality - a way of analysing how different forms of marginalisation like gender, race and sexuality overlap.

"I am part of the LGBTQ+ community, I am part of the black community," he added. "And now I'm about to be part of the solution."

He said he's had contract offers outside of the NFL but he's still hopeful of returning to the sport's elite level.

Russell said he if doesn't become the first openly gay or bisexual player to feature in the NFL, the first to do so could be someone who is already out when drafted into the league.

Michael Sam, who came out as gay while in college in 2014 before he was drafted by the St Louis Rams, was close to being the first.

But Sam only featured in pre-season or practice squad games for both the Rams and Dallas Cowboys.

Russell, who says he was inspired by Sam, believes education from a young age would help make his intended feat a reality.

He said: "It starts young. There's so much misogyny, which I believe is the root of homophobia. A little boy is told, 'You throw like a girl' or 'Men don't cry'.

"These comments are so negative and so harmful, really hateful, corrupt and twisted.

"People have been conditioned to say this to our youth. You don't know what a kid is going through in their personal life.

"And before they even get a chance for honest and genuine exploration of who they are, you're setting up roadblocks."

Russell hopes he can be an example to follow. pg

"I want everyone's coming out to feel as joyous as mine did," he said.

"And at the heart of everything, sports or not, that is the goal. Because no young kid should be walking around thinking they don't deserve love and happiness."

"I didn't know a lot about bisexuality, it wasn't a thing. It was maybe a transition - for people who were afraid to say they were gay."

In the 101-year history of American football's NFL, no openly gay or bisexual athlete has ever featured in a regular-season game.

Ryan Russell is on a mission to change that.

The 29-year-old defensive end is a free agent following spells with the Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Buffalo Bills.

While sidelined with a shoulder injury in 2019, Russell decided to come out as bisexual.

"It's scary, daunting and paralysing but I've got to keep moving forward - I want to be the first, but never the last," Russell told BBC Sport.

Russell says he's fit and ready to play again. Yet for as long as he can remember, he's been fighting an internal battle over his sexuality - one where self-doubt, societal attitudes and media coverage have kept him from "living the truth".

'I could only think of things to lose'
Russell grew up in Texas, where in his words "football and religion" were all that mattered.

His talents for American football were spotted by a coach at high school, where performances later secured him a scholarship at Purdue University in Indiana. It was during his time on campus that Russell had his first relationship with a man.

"In college, I thought, 'Am I turning gay?' I know now that you don't turn gay," he said.

The 6ft 5in footballer said any uncertainty he had about his own sexuality was put on hold when he was drafted by the Cowboys in 2015.

He added: "The NFL calls and I get that call from the Cowboys, and I thought: 'Well, if I was turning gay, I need to stop now.'"

With no openly gay players in the league, Russell said he wasn't ready at the time to be the first because of the uncertainty of what could transpire. He knew that joining the league was an opportunity to change not only his life, but his family's as well.

He also wondered if coming out would be a premature action.

His logic was that if he ended up marrying a woman, why would the world have needed to know he was also attracted to men?

So, on starting life in the NFL, Russell decided to keep his sexuality secret. He could only think of things to lose by revealing he was bisexual.

He said: "I was finally in a place where I could provide for my mother, who had sacrificed so much for me.

"It felt almost selfish to come out. I thought, 'I don't want to be a distraction to my team, I don't want to jeopardise our success on the field, and also my personal success or financial status'. pgslot

"I could only think of things to lose. I could never think of things to gain.

Wieczór Panieński i Kawalerski / Is the US about to split the internet?
« dnia: Luty 23, 2021, 10:46:13 am  »

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he wants a "clean" internet.

What he means by that is he wants to remove Chinese influence, and Chinese companies, from the internet in the US.

But critics believe this will bolster a worrying movement towards the breaking up of the global internet.

The so called "splinternet" is generally used when talking about China, and more recently Russia.

The idea is that there's nothing inherent or pre-ordained about the internet being global.

For governments that want to control what people see on the internet, it makes sense to take ownership of it.

The Great Firewall of China is the best example of a nation putting up the internet equivalent of a wall around itself. You won't find a Google search engine or Facebook in China.

What people didn't expect was that the US might follow China's lead.

Yet critics believe that is the corollary of Mr Pompeo's statement on Thursday.
Mr Pompeo said he wanted to remove "untrusted" applications from US mobile app stores.

"People's Republic of China apps threaten our privacy, proliferate viruses, and spread propaganda and disinformation," he said.

The first question that sprang to mind was: what are the Chinese apps that Mr Pompeo does trust? The assumption is very much that he's talking about ALL Chinese apps.

"It's shocking," says Alan Woodward, a security expert based at the University of Surrey. "This is the Balkanisation of the internet happening in front of our eyes.

"The US government has for a long time criticised other countries for controlling access to the internet… and now we see the Americans doing the same thing." สล็อต ฝาก true wallet

That might be a slight exaggeration. Mr Pompeo's reasons for "cleaning" the US network of Chinese companies is very different to authoritarian government's desire to control what is said online.

But it's true that if Mr Pompeo were to go down this road, it would be reversing decades of US cyber-policy.

If there is one country that has championed a free internet, based on the constitutional tenets of free speech, it is America.

President Donald Trump's administration has taken a different approach though, in part because of the legitimate security concerns that some Chinese companies operating in the US raise.

Pan Młody / Facebook says Apple ad-blocking could halve revenue
« dnia: Luty 23, 2021, 10:44:57 am  »

Facebook has said it could lose most of its revenue from ads on apps, because of changes to Apple's operating system.

In the upcoming iOS 14, apps have to explicitly ask users' permission to collect and share data, meaning ads will no longer be able to just "follow" users to apps outside of Facebook.

Users targeted in this way are eight times more likely to buy products, according to Facebook.

But iOS 14 tests suggest "more than a 50% drop in... publisher revenue".

'Far-reaching impact'
Audience Network, which Facebook describes as a "way for advertisers to extend their campaigns beyond Facebook and into other mobile apps", works by using an identifier code to target advertising on the basis of users' "likes" and preferences.

IPhone users can already opt out of this tracking.

But Apple's plan to require all users to actively opt in before they can be tracked "may render Audience Network so ineffective on iOS 14 that it may not make sense to offer it", Facebook said. สล็อต ฝาก true wallet

In a blog, Facebook warned advertisers they "should expect their ability to effectively monetise from Audience Network to decrease" and called for industry consultation on the changes, which it said would have "a far-reaching impact on the developer ecosystem".

YouTube is facing a legal battle for allegedly breaching the privacy and data rights of under-13s in the UK.

A claim lodged with the High Court against parent company Google accuses the firm of collecting children's data without parental consent.

Privacy expert Duncan McCann, who is bringing the action, argues this is a breach of UK and European (EU) law.

A YouTube spokesperson said it does not comment on pending litigation and the platform is not for use by under-13s.

Mr McCann, a father of three children under the age of 13, believes that if the case is successful, damages of between £100 and £500 could be payable to those whose data was breached.

"When the internet first emerged, we used to be worried about how children used the internet, said Mr McCann.

"That is still a problem, but now it's a two-way street. We need to focus on how the internet is using our children, and ask ourselves if we're comfortable with them becoming a product for these digital platforms?"

"That's the future I don't want," he added.

YouTube video removals doubled during lockdown
He told the BBC that the class action is the first in Europe brought against a technology firm on behalf of children. He says that estimated damages of more than £2bn are being sought for about five million British children as well as their parents or guardians.

He will argue that YouTube and Google have breached the UK's Data Protection Act and the EU's General Data Protection Regulations.

The case will focus on children who have watched YouTube since May 2018, when the new Data Protection Act became law.

"I think we're at the stage, where the only way we can move forward and hold these companies accountable is through the legal process," Mr McCann said.

A YouTube spokesperson said: "We don't comment on pending litigation. YouTube is not for children under the age of 13.

"We launched the YouTube Kids app as a dedicated destination for kids and have made further changes that allow us to better protect kids and families on YouTube," they added.

The video platform has also previously said that it does not sell its users' personal information to advertising companies.

The case is not expected before next autumn. สล็อต ฝาก-ถอน true wallet

Mr McCann also told the BBC that it will also depend on the outcome of another data and privacy case being brought against Google.

Campaign group Foxglove and law firm Hausfeld have also said they would support Mr McCann's case.

Pierwsze spotkanie :-) / EU investigates Instagram over children's data
« dnia: Luty 23, 2021, 10:42:18 am  »

Instagram is being investigated by Ireland's Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) over its handling of children's personal data on the platform.

The social media app's owner Facebook could face a large fine if Instagram is found to have broken privacy laws.

It comes amid reports Instagram failed to protect data, including allowing email addresses and phone numbers of those under 18 to be made public.

Facebook said it rejected the claims but was cooperating with the DPC.

A number of US tech giants have their European headquarters in Ireland, and the DPC is the lead European Union regulator under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force in 2018.

The DPC is responsible for protecting individuals' right to online privacy, and has the power to issue large fines.

The Irish regulator is investigating whether Facebook has a legal basis for processing children's personal data and if it employs adequate protections and restrictions on Instagram for children.

Separately, it is also looking at whether Facebook has adhered with GDPR requirements in relation to Instagram's profile and account settings. It is inquiring into whether Facebook is adequately protecting the data protection rights of children as vulnerable people.

The minimum age for having an Instagram account is 13.

"Instagram is a social media platform which is used widely by children in Ireland and across Europe," said Graham Doyle, a deputy commissioner with DPC.  สล็อต ฝาก-ถอน true wallet

"The DPC has been actively monitoring complaints received from individuals in this area and has identified potential concerns in relation to the processing of children's personal data on Instagram which require further examination."

Miesiąc miodowy / Google kills off emergency location-sharing app
« dnia: Luty 23, 2021, 10:40:09 am  »

Google is shutting down its app designed to let friends and family locate each other in an emergency.

The Trusted Contacts app allowed you to nominate special contacts who could request to see your location - and automatically provide it if the user didn't respond.

It has now been removed from Google's App Store.

Google said it had rolled the features into Google Maps, which people can use to share their location instead.

However, the two apps' features are not identical: Google Maps location sharing must be turned on, and left on all the time, or set for a specific time window.

The Trusted Contacts feature would only broadcast a phone's location when asked, with an option to decline.

"Whether it's hiking alone or walking down a street after dark — sometimes you want to know someone's got your back," Google said of the feature when it launched in December 2016.

Before sending a location request, the app would show approved contacts if the user had moved location recently, and whether the phone was online or not.

The request could go the other way, too - a user could share their location with a contact as they began walking home late at night, for example.

Those who already have the Trusted Contact app downloaded can continue using it until 1 December, when it will be switched off.

While similar, the Maps feature works differently, with requests and controls buried in a sub-menu, and the default time for location sharing is one hour every time it is activated. สล็อต ฝาก-ถอน true wallet


It is not the first time Google has killed off a location-sharing app. Its Latitude app, which similarly integrated with its Maps software, was launched in 2009 and discontinued in 2013.

Panna Młoda / Popular app T&Cs 'longer than Harry Potter'
« dnia: Luty 23, 2021, 10:38:59 am  »

The combined terms and conditions of 13 top apps including TikTok, WhatsApp and Zoom would take 17 hours and five minutes to read, a firm has estimated.

The documents contain a joint total of 128,415 words - longer than any one of the first three Harry Potter novels.

The longest was Microsoft Teams at 18,282 words - or two-and-a-half hours of reading time for many people.

In 2018, a BBC study found that several website policies required university education levels of reading ability.

It is not possible to use the services without agreeing to the terms.

Other long documents discovered by thinkmoney included Candy Crush (14,189 words), Twitter (11,022) and Facebook (8,588). The word count included both terms and conditions and privacy policies.

The shortest on the list was Google Meet with 4,717 words.

Privacy researcher Stephanie Hare said that both the length and language used in such statements made them difficult for adults and children to be able to make informed consent about what they were agreeing to - and the only alternative was to not use the app at all.

"Consent implies choice, but choice is not what's on offer. It is difficult, if not impossible, for most of us to work and live today without using a smartphone, computer and other devices that allow us to transact online," she said.

The EU data regulation GDPR states that communications to individuals about their data must be "concise, transparent, intelligible and [in an] easily accessible form, using clear and plain language, in particular for any information addressed specifically to a child".

Apps on all of Apple's app stores will now have to show much more detail about what data they collect and what it is used for.

From 14 December developers must show what information they gather, listed in terms of what is taken to track users and what is linked directly to them.

However, the tech giant said it was not seeking to change publishers' business models.

Apple has included its own apps in the new rule.

Location and contact information were two examples of data that app developers might take in order to track users and their activities, the firm said. It also said it would always display this information at the top, because it considered it to be of greatest interest to users.

Other data such as health and fitness, financial information and search history, may be linked directly to an individual.
Apps will also have to state whether they collect data from other apps and websites the user has visited in order to target advertising, and what data they share with any third parties such as ad networks.

Ultimately if the user is uncomfortable with the data activity of an app they will not be able to opt out - but they can decide not to download it.

The tech giant said it hoped the new rule would "focus the minds" of both developers and consumers, and added that it would carry out spot checks to ensure that developers were being honest in their declarations.

"All the data privacy experts and lawyers will say it's a step in the right direction, and it is, but what does this change for the user?" said independent researcher Dr Stephanie Hare. สล็อต ฝาก-ถอน true wallet
 
"It doesn't change the actual nature of their data and what's happening with it. It makes them more aware of privacy, but the choice about how to download the app itself hasn't changed."
