China fines Alibaba $129,000 for pricing violations

A cleaner waters the flowers below a logo of Alibaba (China) Technology Co. Ltd at the company's headquarters on the outskirts of HangzhouChina's e-commerce giant, Alibaba Group, has been fined 800,000 yuan ($129,000) by the price bureau in eastern Zhejiang province for violations by third-party sellers during promotions on its e-commerce platforms. Since Alibaba turned "Singles' Day", a November 11 Chinese response to Valentine's Day, into an online shopping festival in 2009, the event has grown to similar proportions as Cyber Monday and Black Friday in the United States. "The company has been fined 500,000 yuan ($81,000) for matters related to Singles' Day pricing by third-party sellers on our Tmall marketplace in 2013 and 2014 and 300,000 yuan($48,000) for pricing in other promotions in 2013 and 2015," Alibaba Group said in a statement on Friday. While pricing is handled by third parties, not directly by Alibaba, the group said, it would nevertheless reinforce pricing rules and regulations with sellers to protect consumers.

Russian cyber attackers used two unknown flaws: security company

Illustration file picture shows a man typing on a computer keyboard in WarsawBy Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A widely reported Russian cyber-spying campaign against diplomatic targets in the United States and elsewhere has been using two previously unknown flaws in software to penetrate target machines, a security company investigating the matter said on Saturday. FireEye Inc , a prominent U.S. security company, said the espionage effort took advantage of holes in Adobe Systems Inc’s Flash software for viewing active content and Microsoft Corp's ubiquitous Windows operating system. The same hackers are also believed to have broken into White House machines containing unclassified but sensitive information such as the president’s travel schedule. FireEye has been assisting the agencies probing those attacks, but it said it could not comment on whether the spies are the same ones who penetrated the White House because that would be classified as secret.

The company plans to simultaneously explore an outright sale as well as a potential initial public offering, the people added. Private equity-owned SunGard decided to explore a sale after it was approached by at least one other company about a potential takeover, one of the people added.
Google's EU showdown offers openings to competitors

Google and European Union logos are seen in SarajevoWhether or not the EU succeeds in branding Google a market-abusing monopolist in web search - a big if, given that the competition authority has yet to publish its exact charges - the Internet giant could be pinned down for years to come in regulatory procedures and legal appeals. A drawn-out process is likely to embolden existing and would-be interlopers to step up assaults on Google's wide range of businesses, if the history of Microsoft's antitrust battles with U.S. and European regulators is any guide. In accusing Google of anti-competitive practices against rival shopping sites, the EU competition authority said it is continuing to investigate other areas, including alleged "web scraping" to copy content off of rival travel and local business review sites, and Google's restrictive practices on advertising. A quick EU finding that Google has abused its market power by favoring its own shopping services at the expense of non-Google websites, could set a precedent for new charges over how it handles hotels, flights and other services, experts say.

EU telecoms reform to address competition from WhatsApp, Skype

Picture illustration shows Whatsapp's logo reflected in a person's eye, in central Bosnian town of ZenicaBy Julia Fioretti BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission will take into account increased competition from cable operators and alternative services such as WhatsApp when it overhauls Europe's telecoms rules next year, a move that will be cheered by the telecoms industry. A draft seen by Reuters of the Commission's strategy for creating a digital single market says telecom operators compete with "over-the-top" services "without being subject to the same regulatory regime". The bloc's telecom firms such as Orange and Deutsche Telekom have long called for lighter-touch regulation, after years of declining revenues and competition from new entrants, to enable them to invest in network upgrades. Telecom companies point to increased competition from services such as Skype (owned by Microsoft ) and online messaging as a reason for easing the regulatory burden.

Microsoft unveils touch-friendly Office apps for Windows phones

A man is silhouetted against a video screen as he poses with Nokia Lumia 820 smartphone in this photo illustration taken in the central Bosnian town of ZenicaMicrosoft Corp on Friday unveiled a long-awaited suite of touch-friendly Office apps that allow Windows phone users to work on Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents on their phones with touch commands and to transfer them easily between devices. Test versions of what Microsoft is calling its Office Universal apps are available to download immediately and full versions will be available by the end of the month, Microsoft said. Many Office users have waited months for Microsoft to introduce the apps, which adapt their look and commands to the device being used, whether Windows Phone or tablet. Microsoft, in a departure from tradition, has already released similar touch-friendly Office apps for Apple Inc's iPad and iPhone, and for tablets running Google Inc's Android.

Like Google Glass for cars: I tried Mini’s Augmented Vision concept

Like Google Glass for cars: I tried Mini’s Augmented Vision conceptWhile Google Glass may have fallen flat, companies big and small are still chasing the dream of seamless augmented reality — information delivered to your field of vision without distraction (and without making you look ridiculous). From a fashion perspective, the glasses aren’t exactly subtle — they closely resemble ski goggles, or old-timey aviation goggles, but with a camera mounted dead-center to let it see what you’re seeing. "We think the long-term vision for something on your head where it's a head-up display for your life is super compelling," says Qualcomm augmented reality VP Jay Wright. "The challenge is there's a lot of technology required to make it happen." As Qualcomm sees it, those challenges include privacy, fashion, interacting with a device that has few standard control schemes, and battery life to make it last all day — all problems that Google Glass was unable to really overcome during its "Explorer" phase.

Comcast, Time Warner Cable negotiators to meet with Justice Department

Comcast, Time Warner Cable negotiators to meet with Justice DepartmentNegotiators and executives from Comcast and Time Warner Cable are set to sit down with the US Justice Department this week, according to The Wall Street Journal. The meeting is the first time regulators and representatives from the cable companies have sat down together to try and negotiate a deal to approve the merger. News of the meeting comes just days after Bloomberg reported that Justice Department lawyers, tasked with scrutinizing the deal, plan to submit a recommendation as soon as next week that regulators halt the merger. As part of the approval process, regulators have reportedly examined how Comcast has followed through with the conditions of its 2011 merger with NBCUniversal.

Email: Affleck asked PBS to not reveal slave-owning ancestor

File-This March 8, 2011, file photo shows actor Ben Affleck testifying before the House Foreign Affairs, Africa, Global Health, and Human Rights Subcommittee hearing in Washington. Affleck requested that the PBS documentary series "Finding Your Roots" not reveal he had a slave-owning ancestor, according to emails published online by whistleblower site WikiLeaks, and the information never appeared on the program. PBS and the host of the show, Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, say they didn’t censor the slave owner details. Instead, more interesting ancestors of the actor emerged and Gates chose to highlight them in the October segment, they said in separate statements posted on the PBS website. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)BOSTON (AP) — Ben Affleck requested that the PBS documentary series "Finding Your Roots" not reveal he had a slave-owning ancestor, according to emails published online by whistleblower site WikiLeaks, and the information never appeared on the program.

Germany still has some way to go to 'smart factories'

Collaborative dual-arm robot YuMi holds a smartphone and a torch at the Swiss automation group ABB booth at the Hannover Messe industrial trade fair in Hanover, central Germany on April 13, 2015Collaborative robots and intelligent machinery may have wowed the crowds at this year's Hannover Messe, but experts see German industry as having some way to go towards incorporating them on factory floors in what could become the fourth industrial revolution. The undoubted star of the world's largest industrial trade fair which closed its doors in the northern German city on Friday was YuMi, a collaborative dual-armed robot made by Swiss-based automation technology group ABB.

Oklahoma approves execution by nitrogen gas as a backup to lethal injections

Oklahoma approves execution by nitrogen gas as a backup to lethal injectionsYesterday, Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin signed into law a bill that approves the use of nitrogen gas for executions in the state. The method, which would effectively asphyxiate death row inmates by forcing them to breathe pure nitrogen through a gas mask, is meant to be the primary alternative to lethal injection, The Washington Post reports. It's also cheap: state representatives say the method only requires a nitrogen tank and a gas mask, but financial analysts say its impossible to give precise figures, the Post reports. Oklahoma's primary execution method is still lethal injection, but the state's procedure is currently under review by the Supreme Court.

Verizon's 'customizable' FiOS TV packages violate contract, says ESPN

Verizon's 'customizable' FiOS TV packages violate contract, says ESPNESPN is fighting back just hours after Verizon announced plans to offer new FiOS TV packages that split up channels into cheaper, semi-a la carte bundles. Extremely powerful networks, like ESPN, can even mandate that its channels are included in the most widely-distributed cable packages. Verizon's announcement was somewhat noteworthy because it appeared to sidestep such stipulations, but now it seems that the operator may have jumped the gun before coming to agreements with its programming partners. The new customizable FiOS packages appear to violate ESPN's rules, as the sports network's channels are not included in the base TV bundle of 35 channels.

5 film techniques J.J. Abrams will use to showcase his Star Wars universe

5 film techniques J.J. Abrams will use to showcase his Star Wars universeOne of the great pleasures of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is seeing a new director inject his own flourishes into an already visually distinctive series. The Star Wars visual catalog has a few staples that have stayed consistent throughout the series: think transitional wipes and pilot POV shots. Unfortunately, the prequels saw George Lucas expand the toolset with a lot of uninspired tricks: slow zooms on wide shots, Barbara Walters glow, and a stubborn use of a locked-down camera. From the looks of the new Star Wars trailer, J.J. Abrams and his cinematographer, Dave Mindel, seem to be trading out the bad visual trademarks and replacing them with some of their own.
