LinkedIn Sued for Reading Universal Clipboard Data 2020/07/11 17:18:23 Mac Rumors
Microsoft's LinkedIn was sued yesterday for allegedly reading and diverting users' private information using the iOS clipboard. The lawsuit filed in San Francisco federal court states that LinkedIn "secretly" read the clipboard "a lot," without notifying the user, according to Reuters . The complaint also claims that LinkedIn has been gathering clipboard information from nearby Apple devices through the Universal Clipboard feature, and has been circumventing Apple's Universal Clipboard timeout. The lawsuit attempts to certify the complaint as class action based on alleged violation of the law or social norms, under California laws. Last week, LinkedIn claimed that the clipboard copying behavior is a bug and is not an intended operation. A VP at LinkedIn commented that the contents of the clipboard are not stored or transmitted, and that a fix for the issue will soon be available. iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 include a new privacy banner feature that informs users when an app pastes from the clipboard.

A new survey by research firm The Harris Poll and the nonprofit JUST Capital asked 2,000 Americans what changes they want to see from the C-suite. More than 60% agree that promoting diversity and inclusion within companies is important. And the majority of Americans, especially Black Americans, agree paying people a living wage is key to advancing equality.

COVID-19 Incentivizing Crypto and Leading Mainstream Adoption 2020/05/17 11:41:00 Cointelegraph
The COVID-19 crisis has pushed people to seek alternative technological solutions as blockchain and crypto become more popular. Crypto is a place where everything changes faster than in any other industry, and seeing as it was born in the age of the internet, this is quite fitting. Today, China is leading the global digital asset initiative. The train of innovations seems to go faster as the digital yuan ( also referred to as DCEP ) has fueled rapid development in the field of distributed ledger technology. Instead of wallowing in a swamp of regulatory uncertainty, the Chinese government shifted its attention to benefits. The Chinese have not wasted time, and despite being the country where the new coronavirus started and has since made a huge impact on society and economy, tech development did not stop, but rather accelerated at astonishing rates. Reportedly, McDonald’s and Starbucks are among a group of 19 restaurants, retail shops and entertainment companies taking part in a trial of China’s digital yuan , part of a pilot program prior to a wider roll-out of the new digital currency.
