"In an open letter posted on Gawker.com, founder and CEO Nick Denton has issued an ultimatum to tech billionaire Peter Thiel.

Should Thiel continue to fund lawsuits against Gawker Media, like Hulk Hogan's, Denton warns that Thiel "too will be subject to a dose of transparency" at the hands of the media.

"However philanthropic your intention, and careful the planning, the details of your involvement will be gruesome," Denton wrote, before challenging Thiel to a public discussion of some sort "under the auspices of the Committee to Protect Journalists*, or in a written discussion on some neutral platform such as Medium.""

North Korea Linked to Digital Attacks on Global Banks - The New York Times

A different kind of digital diplomacy

"The idea that Pyongyang had turned to digital theft would not be surprising. North Korea’s economy has been ravaged by sanctions, food shortages and other deprivations. Pyongyang does not publish economic data, but estimates have put North Korea’s gross domestic product between $12 billion and $40 billion, tiny when compared with South Korea’s economic output of more than $1.4 trillion.

In the attack at Bangladesh’s central bank in February, the thieves tried to transfer $1 billion in funds from an account at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Fed officials became suspicious of the some of requested transfers and released only $81 million to accounts in the Philippines.

“If you presume it’s North Korea, $1 billion is almost 10 percent of their G.D.P.,” Mr. Chien said. “This is not small change for them.”"

Google Prevails as Jury Rebuffs Oracle in Code Copyright Case - The New York Times

Next step: Oracle appeals the verdict

"The victory for Google will cheer many other software developers, who operate much the way Google did when it comes to so-called open-source software. Unlike the traditional software created by corporations and tightly held, open-source products are released, often with some restrictions, for anyone to use and modify.

The decision, delivered in United States District Court in San Francisco, means that for now Oracle cannot collect anything from Google’s use of Android."

Microsoft and Facebook to build subsea cable across Atlantic | Server & Cloud Blog

With initial estimated design capacity of 160 Tbps
"Today we’re excited to announce the latest step in our global cloud infrastructure as Microsoft and Facebook announce plans to build “MAREA” – a new, state-of-the art subsea cable across the Atlantic. The new MAREA cable will help meet the growing customer demand for high speed, reliable connections for cloud and online services for Microsoft, Facebook and their customers. The parties have cleared conditions to go “Contract-In-Force” with their plans, and construction of the cable will commence in August 2016 with completion expected in October 2017."
Later in the post:
"As one of the largest cloud operators in the world, Microsoft has invested more than $15 billion (USD) in building a resilient cloud infrastructure and cloud services that are highly available and highly secure while lowering overall costs. Microsoft has now announced 32 Azure regions around the world with 24 generally available today – more than any other major cloud provider. This latest investment, together with Microsoft’s previously announced investments in global fiber assets including the NCP trans-Pacific subsea cable, is further proof of Microsoft’s commitment to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more."

Apple’s Route to Virtual Reality | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis

Final paragraph from a timely Apple VR reality check

"The point of all this is to say it looks like Apple is nowhere in VR and that’s technically true from the outside. It has no announced hardware, no software that’s specifically designed to support VR, and the best indicator we have Apple is even aware of the technology is some vague comments from Tim Cook that the category is interesting. And yet, what we could see in a few weeks at this year’s WWDC, and in a few months with the new iPhone launch, is a series of subtle indicators Apple is indeed taking VR seriously and laying the groundwork for a future product in this space. Some of those indicators may be fairly transparent, while others will be harder to discern ahead of time. But, if you’re looking, I bet you’ll start to see them over the next year. This activity will slowly ramp until suddenly Apple reveals a product — and then the strategy will become obvious in hindsight."

Microsoft reportedly launching 'Xbox TV' devices next month | The Verge

Unlikely to be branded "WebTV"

"Microsoft's second streaming device is the more interesting of the pair. Sams speculates that it will be a streaming device with advanced functionality. Microsoft originally planned a two-SKU strategy for the Xbox One, but it canceled an "Xbox TV" device. The original TV streaming device was supposed to support the core components of Windows 8, with support for casual gaming through apps. Microsoft's Windows 10 strategy with the Xbox One means that its new rumored Xbox TV device could access universal apps and games from the Windows Store."

Meg Whitman's five-year plan to fix Hewlett-Packard by breaking it up cost a lot of jobs - Recode

An interesting strategy by someone who ran for governor of California with job creation as one of her three major platform areas

"On CNBC today, CEO Meg Whitman said that, after the spinoff, HPE will have somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 people. Separately, a spokesman told Recode that about 100,000 jobs will move from HPE to the new CSC-led company.

The number of announced jobs cut on Whitman's watch add up to more than 85,000, about 25 percent of the total number of employees at HP when she began, about 350,000 worldwide.

And while she will be remembered for fixing deeply-seated problems at one of America's most storied Silicon Valley icons by essentially breaking it into three more valuable pieces, it's only fair to note the pain caused by job losses along the way."

What’s driving Silicon Valley to become ‘radicalized’ - The Washington Post

Joining Apple with a focus on data privacy and protection as strategic competitive differentiation

"The trend is a striking reversal of a long-standing article of faith in the data-hungry tech industry, where companies including Google and the latest start-ups have predicated success on the ability to hoover up as much information as possible about consumers.

Now, some large tech firms are increasingly offering services to consumers that rely far less on collecting data. The sea change is even becoming evident among early-stage companies that see holding so much data as more of a liability than an asset, given the risk that cybercriminals or government investigators might come knocking.

Start-ups that once hesitated to invest in security are now repurposing limited resources to build technical systems to shed data, even if it hinders immediate growth."

Amazon to Battle Google With New Cloud Service for AI Software - Bloomberg

I'm guessing Google's new TPU design may not be open-sourced for a while

"Amazon’s new service will let businesses run different frameworks on its computers, including those created by rivals such as Google, which introduced one called TensorFlow last year, according to the people familiar with the situation.
The service will use a new type of rentable computer from Amazon that has eight graphical processing units from Nvidia Corp., up from four available on Amazon computers today, the people said. GPUs are a common type of semiconductor widely used to run AI programs. The more GPUs, the faster Amazon’s computers can run AI software and crunch related data."

Forget the iPhone, Apple's Next Big Moneymaker Could Be Cars - Bloomberg

R&D different

"Morgan Stanley analysts led by Katy Huberty and Adam Jonas recently took a look at Apple's spending on incremental R&D and found something shocking. Not only is the creator of the iPhone forking out more now than it did when it launched its most successful product, it's also burning more cash than the top 14 automakers combined, and that's an industry deep in transformation. While Apple has spent $5 billion on additional research and development from 2013 to 2015, the major players looking to electrify the fossil fuel world spent only $192 million. (Tesla Motors Inc., though not one of the 14, has spent about $444 million over that same time frame.)"

Salesforce to Use Amazon’s Cloud to Expand in Canada and Australia - The New York Times

A good data point on how well Oracle Database (and/or perhaps Postgres) runs on AWS...

"Amazon Web Services, the biggest of the cloud-computing providers, has a new line of work: Taking other cloud-computing giants into other countries.

On Wednesday, Salesforce.com announced it would use A.W.S. to expand in Canada and Australia, in a deal valued at about $400 million. If successful, the value of the transaction will most likely get much bigger.

“For sure, we’re talking of billions of dollars in services over the next several years,” said Marc Benioff, the co-founder and chief executive of Salesforce."

"Mr. Thiel has donated money to the Committee to Protect Journalists and has often talked about protecting freedom of speech. He said he did not believe his actions were contradictory. “I refuse to believe that journalism means massive privacy violations,” he said. “I think much more highly of journalists than that. It’s precisely because I respect journalists that I do not believe they are endangered by fighting back against Gawker.”

He continued, “It’s not like it is some sort of speaking truth to power or something going on here. The way I’ve thought about this is that Gawker has been a singularly terrible bully. In a way, if I didn’t think Gawker was unique, I wouldn’t have done any of this. If the entire media was more or less like this, this would be like trying to boil the ocean.” Mr. Thiel said he had not targeted any other media companies."

Microsoft U-turn on "nasty trick" pop-up - BBC News

Good news for those who wish to use Windows 7 indefinitely

"Users were angry that clicking the cross to dismiss the box meant that they had agreed to the upgrade.
Based on "customer feedback", Microsoft said it would add another notification that provided customers with "an additional opportunity for cancelling the upgrade".
The pop-up design had been described as a "nasty trick".
Microsoft told the BBC it had modified the pop-up as a result of criticism: "We've added another notification that confirms the time of the scheduled upgrade and provides the customer an additional opportunity for cancelling or rescheduling the upgrade."

Apple may open up Siri to developers. That’s a huge deal. - The Washington Post

That should be "reopen;" see SIRI RISING: The Inside Story Of Siri’s Origins — And Why She Could Overshadow The iPhone (Huffington Post, 1/24/2013) for some historical details; also see Siri-creator shows off first public demo of Viv, ‘the intelligent interface for everything’ (TechCrunch)
"Apple is taking two big steps to improve its voice-controlled assistant, Siri, according to a new report from tech news site the Information that cites a single person with "direct knowledge" of Apple's plans. For one, it's apparently working on a standalone speaker that can house the voice-controlled assistant, like Amazon's Echo or the forthcoming Google Home.

That may sound like some pretty big news, even Apple is a little late to the market for smart home hubs, apart from some small forays with Siri and the Apple TV. But the real revelation from the Infomation article is the report that Apple's going to open Siri up to developers, perhaps as soon as next month during the company's annual developers conference. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the report."

Microsoft Cutting 1,850 Jobs in Smartphone Unit - The New York Times

Perhaps part of BlackBerry's employee motivation strategy -- it could have been worse...

"As downbeat a note as the layoffs were for Microsoft’s smartphone business, there isn’t much left of the army of people it once had working on the devices.

About 25,000 workers joined Microsoft as a result of the company’s acquisition of Nokia’s handset business, but Microsoft quickly felt pressure to cut costs as phone sales struggled. In 2014, Microsoft announced it was cutting 18,000 jobs, most of them related to the Nokia deal.

Last year, it eliminated an additional 7,800 jobs, trimmed the number of smartphones it offered and took a $7.6 billion accounting charge, writing off nearly the entire value of the Nokia deal. Microsoft has about 110,000 total employees."

Teens' newest use for smartphones? Writing school papers on them. - The Boston Globe

The write stuff; for some options other than Office and Google Docs, see Now You Can Write the Great American Novel on the Subway (NYT)

"Today’s smartphones, after all, are bona fide supercomputers capable of everything from capturing high-def video to securing dinner reservations. A near lifetime of cellphone use, meanwhile, has left countless teens more proficient at typing on a roughly 2-inch-by-3-inch smartphone screen than a computer keyboard.

And with extracurricular activities gobbling up after-school hours, many students fit in homework where they can, making the cellphone — that portable hunk of super-charged wonder — the instrument upon which many an essay ends up composed.

For students, the appeal is obvious: Why chain yourself to a desk — or laptop, for that matter — when you don’t have to?"

Apple prepping thinner MacBook Pros with OLED screen above keyboard, Touch ID for Q4 | 9to5Mac

Looks like I'll be using my current MacBook Air until >= October; hopefully Apple will also see fit to update its Thunderbolt Display, which hasn't been refreshed since it was introduced in mid-2011
"According to a new note from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities and corroborated by our sources, Apple plans to introduce a dramatically overhauled MacBook Pro later this year. Kuo says the device will have a new “thinner and lighter” design with design cues taken from the 12-inch MacBook, as well as Touch ID support and a new OLED display touch bar above the keyboard.

Kuo’s report explains that the MacBook Pro updates are the “brightest spot for Apple’s 2016 rollouts” and will come to both the 13-inch and 15-inch models sometime during the fourth quarter of this year.

The OLED display touch bar will replace the physical function keys along the top of the keyboard, while the design will adopt new metal injection molded hinges as reported earlier this year. Additionally, the refreshed MacBook Pros are said to feature USB-C support and Thunderbolt 3."

"Yet Facebook knows when the good part of a Live video is coming. When entertained or riled up, viewers can fire off Live comments and reaction emojis during the stream that the broadcaster can see, similar to Facebook Live competitor Periscope’s hearts.

Now Facebook tells me it’s putting reactions to work to power a visualized timeline of when a Live video receives the most engagement. When you go to fast-forward through the recorded replay of a Live clip, you’ll see the graph of reaction volume overlaid on the progress bar.

Essentially, you’ll be able to see when the video gets interesting and skip there if you want."

Spotify lost more money than ever last year — which is great news for Spotify - Recode

"Spotify lost more money in 2015.

And its managers and investors are probably very happy about that.

That's because the music streaming service's revenue increased much faster than its losses — something it hasn't always been able to say.

Given that Spotify has told its investors it is headed for an IPO in the next few years, it's the kind of performance it will need to be able to replicate with consistency."

Is Apple really at the risk of becoming BlackBerry? - The Washington Post

Check Marco Arment's post, If Google’s right about AI, that’s a problem for Apple, for full context-setting
"There's also another interesting reason why Apple may not be going quite as hard into some of the areas that its competitors are: its devotion to privacy. Apple simply doesn't collect data in the same way that Google or others do, by design. Consumers offer a lot of information already to services to make them better — for maps, recommendations, etc. — and software assistants that can manage our schedules, hack our commutes and control our homes will require a lot of pooled data. But perhaps the most interesting part of Arment’s analysis is the footnote in which he says that he doesn't find this a very good excuse. 
"It’s possible to build tons of useful services and smarts by just using public data, like the Web, mapping databases, business directories, etc., without any access to or involvement from the user’s private data," he said. In other words, Apple's getting outstripped on even the non-creepy services."

Facebook is making some big changes to Trending Topics, responding to conservatives - The Washington Post

Check this Facebook post for full details

"Under the change, Facebook will discontinue the algorithmic analysis of media organizations’ websites and digital news feeds that partly determines which stories should be included in Trending Topics. Also being thrown out is a list of 1,000 journalism outlets that currently helps Facebook’s curators evaluate and describe the newsworthiness of potential topics, as well as a more exclusive list of 10 news sites that includes BuzzFeed News, the Guardian, the New York Times and The Washington Post.

The updates to Facebook’s curation policy highlight the difficulty the company now faces as its next stage of growth brings the social media giant, with 1.6 billion users, much closer to the kind of editorial work that traditional news outlets have historically performed. Now, Facebook’s increasing resemblance to others in the media industry has raised questions about the company’s approach to disseminating news."

Oracle Sued Google Over a Hamburger, Java-Android Jury Told - Bloomberg

A beefy argument

"Oracle Corp. sued Google over the equivalent of a hamburger.
That’s a Google lawyer’s message to jurors at the companies’ copyright infringement trial. Robert Van Nest showed the jury a menu with only “hamburger” written on it and likened it to the packages, or APIs, of Java programming code Oracle claims Google stole to build its Android operating system.
“The API is hamburger there, it’s the menu,” Van Nest said Monday in his closing arguments at a trial that started two weeks ago. The exhibit also showed two burgers, one simple and the other garnished. The message: putting the word “burger” on a menu isn’t unique -- it’s what’s behind the word, how you build your burger, that counts."

Microsoft Awards First Grants to Help Expand Global Internet Access - The New York Times

A step in the right direction

"On Tuesday, the company, which is based in Redmond, Wash., announced the first winners of grants under a new program called the Affordable Access Initiative. The 12 recipients, who will get $70,000 to $150,000 apiece, include a company in Rwanda franchising solar-powered mobile kiosks that provide Wi-Fi and battery recharges, and an Argentine firm that uses monitoring technologies and chatbots so that farmers can keep tabs remotely on the health of their cattle.

That’s a pittance compared with Google, which has built a fiber-optic network in Uganda’s capital and has struck deals in Sri Lanka and Indonesia to eventually beam the Internet down from high-altitude balloons. Nor does it display the ambition of Facebook, which offers a free set of basic Internet services with local phone companies in more than three dozen countries and is testing the first of a planned fleet of large, ultralight drones to deliver Internet service from on high."

Google I/O 2016: Android's Instant Apps seek to solve a key mobile problem (AppleInsider)

Excerpt from a big-picture Android reality check; also see Google I/O 2016: Android's failure to innovate hands Apple free run at WWDC (AppleInsider)
"In reality the problem Instant Apps actually aims to solve is not so much a problem for users, nor even really the problem with OS level fragmentation in Android. It's the problem of Google search trying to remain relevant in the mobile world.

Google would like mobile users to start in Google search, then follow its search links to arrive at a result deep within a mobile app. The problem is that users may not have the app installed, resulting in a series of delays that might result in the user giving up (perhaps choosing not to download the new app, or running into an issue while downloading, or getting distracted along the way and doing something else).

The problem of the user not getting to the result Google is recommending is a bigger problem for Google than the user, because while the user is likely to eventually solve their own problem somehow (perhaps by downloading that app or a similar one later on), without capturing the user's attention long enough to complete a sale, Google can't get paid."

How Microsoft's tricky new Windows 10 pop-up deceives you into upgrading | PCWorld

One way to boost Windows 10 upgrade numbers

"But here’s the icky part: The redesigned GWX pop-up now treats exiting the window as consent for the Windows 10 upgrade.

So after more than half a year of teaching people that the only way to say “no thanks” to Windows 10 is to exit the GWX application—and refusing to allow users to disable the pop-up in any obvious manner, so they had to press that X over and over again during those six months to the point that most people probably just click it without reading now—Microsoft just made it so that very behavior accepts the Windows 10 upgrade instead, rather than canceling it."

This dark side of the Internet is costing young people their jobs and social lives - The Washington Post

Some scary stats

"It is easy to scoff at the idea of Internet addiction, which is not officially recognized as a disorder in the United States. Medical science has yet to diagnose precisely what is going on in the brains of the addicted, and there is no clear definition of what entails an Internet addiction. Yet a growing number of parents and experts say addiction to screens is becoming a major problem for many young Americans, causing them to drop out of school, withdraw from their families and friends, and complain of deep anxieties in social settings.

A recent study by Common Sense Media, a parent advocacy group, found that 59 percent of parents think their teens are addicted to mobile devices. Meanwhile, 50 percent of teenagers feel the same way. The study surveyed nearly 1,300 parents and children this year."
