Opinion: Why does no one get how email apps and Gmail add-ons work?

Friday, September 21st, 2018

There are legitimate security concerns about Google, most recently around its handling of user location data. However, there are a growing number of media outlets and U.S government officials bashing the company for allowing Gmail add-ons and third-party mail clients to read user messages - which is required for them to function.

A few months ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was questioned by the U.S. Senate's Commerce and Judiciary committees, as a result of the company's Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Android phones in the US can now provide accurate location data directly to emergency services

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

The location-finding capabilities of US emergency services are woefully inadequate, this much is known. What makes it all the more tragically ironic is that the very devices most often used to call 911 — smartphones — contain exceedingly accurate location data. How hard could it be to use that data for such an important purpose? Hard enough that it took Google until just now to expand its faster, more accurate Emergency Location Service (ELS) to the US.

Another government ban is targeting Huawei and ZTE hardware

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

The past few months have been difficult for Chinese smartphone OEMs, particularly ZTE and Huawei. ZTE nearly shut down after the U.S. government placed a trade ban on the company, which was finally lifted last month. Earlier this year, AT&T and Verizon reportedly dropped plans to sell the Huawei Mate 10 Pro due to pressure from the federal government. Now both companies are under fire again, as U.S. agencies are now banned from using their telecommunications technology.

Google’s Smart Displays and Assistant speakers will now tell you about specific news events

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Google Assistant-equipped speakers have already been able to give recaps about the news, and Smart Displays took that a step further by also showing relevant videos. However, you were out of luck if you wanted to hear specific topics read out to you. Google is now fixing that, so long as you're in the US.

Asking an Assistant speaker a specific news question such as "What's the latest on NASA?" will cause excerpts of relevant news articles to be read aloud to you.

Report: US to block China Mobile’s application to enter US market

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

The US government has been growing increasingly critical (perhaps even paranoid) when it comes to the operation of Chinese companies in the US. Between the on-again-off-again ZTE snafu and Huawei's allegedly government-influenced issues with its US carrier deals, Chinese tech companies are running into increasingly more problems doing business in the United States. This is just the start, though, as according to a recent report by Bloomberg, the FCC is set to deny China Mobile's application to provide telecommunications services in the US.
