Global electric vehicle sales for the first half of 2021 rose by 160% year-on-year, the technology analyst firm Canalys says, adding that 2.6 million EVs were sold.
The executive order on cyber security issued by the US on Thursday will be judged by whether it can stop the next attack similar to the Colonial Pipeline attack or the SolarWinds supply chain fiasco, the head of a security firm says.
A ban on US investment in the Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has been lifted, with the US Defence Department apparently unwilling to defend a Trump era action that claimed the company had ties to the Chinese military.
The affiliate of ransomware operator DarkSide, the Windows malware that was used to attack the US Colonial Pipeline Company, appears to have taken on a target that was outside the parameters set down by the operator, judging from a statement made by the operator on its site on the dark web.
Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden, has admitted that a laptop, which he is alleged to have left at a repair shop in Delaware and the contents of which led to controversy in the run-up to last year's presidential election, could be his.
The ban imposed on the issue of H-1B visas by the US in June last year has ended after the order expired on Wednesday.
The national body representing the electric vehicle industry in Australia, the Electric Vehicle Council, has issued a scathing critique of a Future Fuels discussion paper put out by the Federal Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction Angus Taylor, describing it as “yet another flaccid, do-nothing document that will prevent Australians getting access to the world’s best electric vehicles.”
All the talk about decoupling from China in the wake of the pandemic and the US trade war is mainly "cheap talk for domestic consumption", an American lawyer, who has worked with a number of law firms in China for three decades, says.
The Federal Government has blown a chance it had to implement a world-leading deal with digital giants Google and Facebook, backing down even before the bill for its so-called News Media and Digital Platforms Mandatory Bargaining Code was introduced into Parliament. The digital platforms will be breaking out the Dom Pérignon in Silicon Valley over the way they have clinically neutered Treasurer Josh Frydenberg.
The anti-trust suit filed by the US against Google in October is unlikely to make any progress, judging by the kind of people whom US president-elect Joe Biden is taking onboard as part of his transition team and also in technology roles.
With the US administration changing next year, it is very likely that Google will be able to get a waiver on selling the proprietary version of its Android operating system to Chinese telecommunications vendor Huawei Technologies, something it has been unable to do ever since the Trump administration put in place sanctions on the Chinese firm.
The social media site Twitter has once again shown it has somewhat twisted priorities by taking down the account of Swiss IT consultant and developer Tillie Kottmann who exposed consultancy firm Deloitte's lack of technical nous.
The US Government's reaction to Twitter's blocking of dissemination of a story about Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, appears to have forced the social media platform to change its rules around its so-called Hacked Materials Policy.
A day after it blocked the posting of an article about alleged shady doings by the son of Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden, the social media site Twitter has apparently been hit by an outage.
Is one mistaken or is Google now resigned to the introduction of a mandatory code that will force it to negotiate with Australian news publishers over payment terms?
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may be able to escape a future in jail given that a decision on whether to send him to the US or not will be taken only in 2021.
Google is trying its best to prolong its stoush with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission over a code for sharing revenue with news organisations until the US presidential election, in the hope that current polls hold and the Democrats return to power.
Twitter accounts of many rich and famous Americans — including Elon Musk, Joe Biden, Barack Obama and Jeff Bezos — were hijacked on Wednesday and used to advertise cryptocurrency scams, according to a tweet from British security researcher Marcus Hutchins.
