The meta corporation, grown by Facebook, puts the Metaverse above Facebook. With the virtual reality headsets taken over by Oculus, the compulsion to have a Facebook account, which was viewed with suspicion by competition watchdogs, is no longer applicable. Meanwhile, privacy experts have made daycare apps and found serious security deficiencies. The apps also serve as a source of income, as many operators share the collected data with advertisers. Twitter, on the other hand, has introduced the new CoTweet function for joint posts by two users as a test – the most important reports in a nutshell.
Wer Metas Virtual-Reality-Headsets want to use can soon without a facebook account do. In August, the data company will restructure its accounts for its VR headsets, links to Facebook and/or Instagram will then be optional. This avoids meta antitrust problems, because competition authorities could interpret the Facebook coercion as an attempt to exploit power in one market for advantages in another. Now the Metaverse should soon be accessible without a Facebook account.
In a study, IT security experts found 42 We-Apps examined and partly serious security flaws discovered. Multiple apps accessed data without consent and shared them with third parties, with some the researchers were even able to share access photos of children. Almost all apps collect data and sell it to Amazon, Facebook, Google or Microsoft for targeted advertising campaigns: privacy experts find serious security deficiencies in daycare apps.
Twitter is currently testing a new feature called CoTweet. Two users can use one shared tweet drop off and join in both as authors specified. This feature is initially available for a limited time and is currently only available to a select few users in Korea, Canada and the United States. With that, Twitter wants strengthen similarities and follows the example Instagramswhich tested a similar function last year with “Collabs”: Twitter is testing joint tweeting by two users with CoTweets.
Apparently, the tide is turning faster than expected semiconductor industry: Especially due to the collapsed demand from private households manufacturers will cancel theirs in the second half of 2022 wafer orders at chip contract manufacturers such as TSMC, Samsung, UMC and Globalfoundries (GF). Of the order drop therefore affects all process generations with 350-nanometer structures and finer, but especially older production technology that processes 200-millimeter wafers. The end of the chip shortage is beginning to appear: Manufacturers are canceling orders en masse.
Die resilience of telecommunications networks to strengthen is the aim of Federal Network Agency. Among other things, the authority wantsRegulations for emergency power supply” establish so that basic services such as emergency calls and the receipt of warning messages can also be provided work in the event of a power failure. However, not every single transmitter will have to have emergency power technology. Coverage is key, which could be improved by stronger signals at lower frequencies in the event of a disaster. the Network operators fear high costs: Germany’s mobile operators are to massively improve the emergency power supply.
High costs are part of the reason that the struggling Telecom Italia wants to sell its networks to the state or private investors for 25 billion euros. He wants to sell to end customers Ex-Monopolist but continue to do it yourself – admittedly with 3,000 fewer employees. The network should by 2030 6,000 jobs will be lost. For the past six years, Telecom Italia has already 14,000 jobs eliminated.
