Apple's New Privacy Pledge Holds Up

Clip Syndicate

In the letter, Cook obliquely attacked his recently designated top rival Google and promised Apple deeply respected the privacy of its customers’ personal information. Cook wrote, “A few years ago, users of Internet services began to realize that when an online service is free, you’re not the customer." “You’re the product. But at Apple, we believe a great customer experience shouldn’t come at the expense of your privacy.” That’s been a rallying cry of Apple fans for ages. Read More >>

EU Regulators Agree On Guidelines For 'right To Be Forgotten' Complaints

European regulators have agreed on criteria for judging appeals for the "right to be forgotten", taking into account public profiles or crime for example, when search engines such as Google turn down requests to have information deleted from search results. But regulators made no mention of two thorny issues: whether search engines ought to inform publishers when articles have been delisted from search results, and whether links ought to be removed from all versions of Google, such as Google.com. The working group of EU data protection authorities aims to bring some clarity to implementing a landmark court decision in May that gave Europeans the right for the first time to ask search engines to erase information about them from the web.

IOS 8 Brings Big Boost For Web Programmers

Web programmers rejoice: Apple's new iOS 8 has added support for standards that will let you build better games and more productive websites. Safari, the browser built into Apple's mobile operating system, now can run Web software written to use the WebGL standard for hardware-accelerated 3D graphics and the IndexedDB standard for storing data that can be used even without a network connection.

EU Regulators Preparing Guidelines For 'right To Be Forgotten' Complaints

European regulators are working on guidelines for appeals from people whose requests to remove information from search results under their name have been turned down by search engines such as Google. The working group aims to bring some clarity to implementing a landmark court decision in May that gave Europeans the right for the first time to ask search engines to erase information about them from the web. The guidelines, which are expected to be finalised by the end of November, will set out categories to organize the types of appeals coming in from citizens and help authorities weigh the public's right to know the information with the individual's right to privacy.
