Big technology companies have come in for criticism by Communications Minister Paul Fletcher for resisting attempts by the Australian Government to create regulations to keep them in line.
In what appears to be a first, a CIA-bankrolled threat intelligence firm has set up a "tech news" outlet to spread its wares.
A comparison of the output of greenhouse gases by two vehicles — a Tesla Model 3 (electric) and a Toyota RAV4 (petrol) — by a team of academics at the University of Toronto has shown that the EV will generate 36 tons (32.6 tonnes) of such gases over the lifespan of a typical car — 200,000 miles (321,868 km) — while the RAV4 would output more than double that amount – 78 tons (70.8 tonnes).
Microsoft has taken a further step to mitigate attacks on its Exchange Server product by including a mitigation tool that it released a couple of days ago in its Defender Anti-Virus program.
Microsoft has offered users of Exchange Server a means of mitigating the so-called ProxyLogon attack, a one-click tool that it says has been tested across the 2013, 2016 and 2019 versions of Exchange Server.
ANALYSIS That 5G revenue figures are more of a political statistic these days than an economic one can be gauged from the Wall Street Journal highlighting the fact that Ericsson and Nokia were ahead of Huawei in cellular equipment sales in 2020 outside China, while downplaying the fact that the Chinese firm kept, and increased its lead, globally when all markets, including China, were taken into account.
Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation has struck a global three-year deal with Google in return for what the publisher has described as "significant payments".
One of the partners of a law firm that has been appointed by Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies, as a strategic counsel "to defend the company locally against malicious and false attacks designed to cause us reputational damage", says there are no plans to take anyone to court over criticism of the company.
Despite being one of the bigger and older US mainstream media outlets, The Wall Street Journal appears to be unable to do the small things right and manage its digital subscribers properly.
Some websites have shut down and others are either blocking users from Europe or trying to obtain consent before allowing them in as the General Data Protection Regulation comes into force in the 28 states of the European Union.
Facebook's decision to prioritise posts made by users and their friends over those from publishers and brands is likely to make it more expensive for marketing agencies to push their clients' products.
In October, the three biggest mainstream newspapers in the US carried stories about Kaspersky Lab that effectively ensured there would be no second thoughts about the company's deals with the US Government. Examined carefully, these stories are short on essential detail. They are full of holes.
In its continuing bid to provide what it sees as proof that it has no nexus with the Russian Government, Kaspersky Lab has released a detailed report about a 2014 incident which was reported by US media and used to cast aspersions on the company.
Explosive allegations by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks that the CIA had devised a means to impersonate exfiltration attempts from computers infected with its malware implants as being from Kaspersky Lab have been largely ignored by the mainstream US and tech media.
In the latest sign that Windows on mobiles is becoming an increasingly smaller niche, The Wall Street Journal has decided to discontinue development of its Windows 10 dedicated app for mobile devices.
Acting on orders from China, Apple has pulled the New York Times' new apps from its app store in the country.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook is keeping people guessing as to whether the company will repatriate its massive pile of cash stashed outside the US or leave things as they are.
Amazon has launched an in-app purchasing service for developers and publishers using the Android platform.
