France forbids Facebook from tracking Internet users

Facebook is very active today, but the portal is not limited to its own users. He trains literally all with the social plugins on the site. This practice does not appeal to French organizations that consider this to be a privacy violation and have just ordered the portal to stop doing so.

In the network are circulating opinions suggesting that Facebook is an ideal tool for surveillance of Internet users. This is not a theory far from the truth, as it can be said that the largest social network of the world really follows all Internet users with the so-called. cookies. Thanks to them they get a lot of information about us, by collecting data about the visited pages.

It would be understandable if action was limited to portal users, but it is not. All internet users are tracked through social plugins placed on the pages. Even if we do not have a Facebook account, then after visiting the site with such a plug-in, cookies are depositing on our disk and begin to collect information.

This operation of the portal does not appeal to the French privacy organization CNIL, which has ordered it to stop tracking non-users. Otherwise serious financial penalties will be imposed on him. The CNIL representatives argue that the data of European Internet users are then sent to the US, which is incompatible with the EU legal regulations. So they give the portal three months to comply.…


European projects of space conquest

The European Union does not want to lag behind other countries implementing its own space programs. She has therefore signed an agreement with the European Space Agency to provide government and industry support for the project to keep pace with its rivals.

More and more countries have their space programs implementing advanced space exploration projects. China and India are particularly well suited to this field, which put lunettes on the moon and send probes to Mars, also planning to build orbiting and lunar bases.

The European Union does not want to stay behind, so it has reached an agreement with the European Space Agency, which will support projects from national governments and industry. To speed up the development of new technologies, the European Commission also intends to provide financial support to entrepreneurs in this field.

Plans for the next 10-15 years also assume the launch of 30 satellites that will be launched with Ariadne 6 and Vega C missiles built in Europe. They are intended to serve as launch platforms for all companies or research centers wishing to place their own instruments on Earth.

The concept also assumes securing the interests of space companies. The plan is to launch the EU Space Situational Awareness Service, which will protect orbital infrastructure against the threat of cosmic junk and solar winds, as well as defending it from possible cyber attacks.

In addition, an initiative will be launched called GovSatCom, which aims to provide cheap, secure and easily accessible satellite communications between the Union’s authorities and the governments of its individual members.

The European Union authorities hope that the planned initiatives and projects will strengthen its position in the space industry. It will not be easy, however, because of the growing competition. The big threat in this field are American private companies such as SpaceX, but not only. China has recently launched a second experimental space station module, which will be fully functional in 2020. India is also well on the way to success in the field of reusable rocket construction.…


Blocking ads on IOS causes problems with online purchases

Apple has recently released a feature-rich content locking feature in Safari that enables application developers to create plug-ins that block cookies, images, pop-ups, and other content. In general, the system was created to get rid of ads, but can cause problems with online shopping.

Ad blocking apps quickly reached the top of the App Store’s top-selling apps, significantly speeding up page loading and reducing the amount of data they download. However, they must be considered with their use, as some of them may also block the possibility of online shopping. This is what happens with the Crystal app, which has turned out to be impossible to buy at Sears online stores and Walkmart, but such stores may be more.

The tests carried out by many service journalists show that most sites will work properly, but some may experience occasional problems.

Fortunately, some applications have broader functionality than others, allowing the user to create a list of sites whose blocking features are disabled.…


Premiere ipad 3 for 3

DigiTimes claims that the launch of iPad 3, another hit of one of the most popular tablets in the market, will take place in three or four months.

Recently, the media seems to have come to a close on the iPad 3, and they do not provide the approximate date of its release. However, we always have reliable DigiTimes, which claims that the launch of the latest tablet is approaching big steps and the device will hit the market in three to four months maximum.

DigiTimes, in its projections, cites its own sources similar to Apple’s supply chain, which claims that iPad 2 production is slowing down and that in the coming months it should start manufacturing components for the iPad 3. Apparently early next year, the factory will start full steam.

The new iPad is expected to be seriously redesigned and equipped with a 9.7-inch Retina Display, offering a high resolution of the projected image. These changes may, however, entail an increase in price, which would thus cover the installation of a much more expensive screen.…


DDR4 memory already sold in Japanese shop

Although the latest Intel X99 chipset supporting DDR4 memory will not be available before September this year, memory chips are already available. The bones produced by SanMax are sold by a Japanese trader.

Technological advances in the field of personal computers are so fast that we can soon expect another evolution, this time on RAM. Soon, our PCs will appear on the latest DDR4 memory chips, and the first platform to support them is the Intel X99 chipset.

It is true that the stores will not be available until the fall of the year, but the memory itself can be bought right now. SanMax systems have just appeared in one of the Japanese computer stores and are available in 16 and 32 GB, priced at $ 350 and $ 685, respectively.

The price is very shocking, but of course it must be taken into consideration that it is affected by the fact that DDR4 systems are only coming to market. In a few months when mass production will start and demand grows, the price should drop to a more decent level.…
