Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Apple#NYT#web Apple, along with several prominent iOS app developers, has been hit with a class action lawsuit, accused of allowing iPad and iPhone apps to transmit users’ personal information to advertising networks without their consent.The suit was filed on Dec. 23 in federal court in San Jose, California and centers on the use of the Unique Device Identifier (UDID). According to the lawsuit, this unique identifying number “transmits that information along with the device’s location data to third-party advertisers.” The suit also contends that some apps share users’ location, age and gender with advertisers; Pandora, Dictionary.com, the Weather Channel, TextPlus and others are named, along with Apple, as defendants in the lawsuit.The lawsuit follows a Wall Street Journal story earlier this month that found that over half of the 100 popular apps it examined transmitted the UDID, along with other information, to other companies – all without users’ awareness or consent.For its part, Apple says that apps “cannot transmit data about a user without obtaining the user’s prior permission and providing the user with access to information about how and where the data will be used.” But according to the WSJ investigation, many apps seem to violate this rule, and Apple spokespeople have been mum on how the company interprets or enforces this policy. The lawsuit claims that the transmission of personal data is a violation of federal computer fraud and privacy laws. It seeks class-action status for all Apple customers who downloaded an application between Dec. 1, 2008 and last week. But as Bloomberg notes, it may be hard to prove that Apple has violated any laws given the terms of service we all agree to (but never read.) “Still,” writes Bloomberg, “it’s another sign that concerns about monitoring consumers’ behavior via their electronic devices is not about to go away anytime soon, as regulators and Congress prepare to take an even closer look at the issue in the new year.” Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts audrey watters 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
View comments Fans reach for Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert as he leaves the court following the team’s NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, Feb. 1, 2019, in Salt Lake City. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was in tears Friday after being snubbed for even a reserve spot in this year’s NBA All-Star Game despite a standout campaign.The 26-year-old French 7-footer (2.16m) is this year’s most accurate NBA shooter, connecting on 65% of shots from the floor, and has had a strong follow up to last season’s Defensive Player of the Year honors.ADVERTISEMENT US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte LATEST STORIES PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss With NBA coaches making the call on backup players, Gobert felt especially insulted at his defensive efforts being unrewarded, even knowing the all-star matchup is typically a score-fest with half-hearted defensive work.“I think it’s disrespectful. I feel disrespected,” Gobert said. “It’s disrespectful not only toward me but toward the team, the organization and toward the game.“Because all the coaches preach about defense. Every day they talk about defense, they talk about how important it is to get stops in order to win basketball games.“And when it’s time to vote, they don’t reward the best defensive player in the world.”Gobert said he resisted the urge to take his displeasure to Twitter but Utah Jazz president Steve Starks did not, tweeting: “Rudy deserved to be named an All-Star. Complete non-sense and we need more integrity and accountability. If the coaches vote then their ballots should be made public.”ADVERTISEMENT But he waited in vain Thursday night to hear his name when the list of reserve players for the February 17 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte was announced.“My mom called me crying,” Gobert said in a posting on the club website. “It was tough.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesGobert turned off his television and admitted Friday he felt disrespected and frustrated by the all-star snub.“I was surprised,” he said. “We all know how the league works, the direction the league is heading to.

I was 24. It was my first year playing well. I thought maybe I have to make a name for myself, earn the respect,” Gobert said.“But I’ve won the Defensive Player of the Year. I should have two, by the way. All-NBA Second Team. And they still don’t give me that respect.“I’m always going to be about winning. I don’t want to be focused on those things. But at one point I’d still like to get that recognition.”Gobert says he would take an all-star nod as an injury replacement selection but added, “It’s not the same as being selected.”It also wouldn’t pay him the $1 million bonus Gobert would have had from being selected, but that means less, Gobert said, than how his career will be regarded once it’s done.“It’s my legacy,” Gobert said. “I don’t even play for money. I don’t care about that All-Star bonus, to be honest. It’s just about my legacy. Everything I do, I do it to win.

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. — An on-ice confrontation between a referee and some adults at a three-on-three hockey tournament for children in Lethbridge, Alta., is under investigation by police.Cellphone video shot by a spectator appears to show five unidentified people not on skates approach an official on the ice Sunday at the eighth annual Quest for the Cup tournament.The referee initially skates backwards before getting shoved by someone in the group.Both people then fall to the ice before a third person intervenes.It’s not known what prompted the confrontation at the tournament, which involves boys and girls between the ages of seven and 12 and is put on by the Lethbridge-based skills development organization, High Performance Hockey.A statement posted to High Performance’s website Sunday evening confirmed the altercation occurred and says the organization is co-operating with the police investigation.The statement said the tussle “should serve as an example to all about the importance of ensuring the rink is a safe place for our children. Actions like this have no place in our game”It also said the tournament is an opportunity for players to enjoy the game of hockey with their friends.“For that reason, we are especially disappointed to see an act like this occur.” (CTV Lethbridge, The Canadian Press)The Canadian Press
Shelby Lum / Photo editorRedshirt senior running back Jordan Hall pushes through the line with the ball in a game against Buffalo on Aug. 31. OSU won, 40-20Coming into Ohio State’s season opener against Buffalo, the question was, “Who was going to step up as running back?”After OSU’s 40-20 victory, though, the question is, “Who can stop Jordan Hall?”The redshirt senior running back was named the starter in the week leading up to his team’s season opener, but there were some doubts about his ability to perform as the main running back.Hall quelled any doubts that the fans had by halftime, tallying 126 yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground in the first half. He finished with 159 yards on the day, a career high.Both of his touchdowns came on big runs in the first half, one of which was a career-long at 49 yards. The other, a 37-yard sprint, came one play after Buffalo had cut the lead to 10 points and all but dashed any hope the Bulls had for a comeback.Junior quarterback Braxton Miller said that Hall’s second touchdown helped to keep the momentum in Ohio State’s favor as the game was starting to slip away from the Buckeyes.“It slipped a little bit. But Dontre (Wilson) came back with a nice kickoff return, we got up a little bit and then Jordan scored a nice little run,” said Miller.Hall credits his touchdown runs to the holes that were created for him by the offensive line.“I just was like wow, I don’t know if they messed up or the O-line just did what they do and I just (saw) it and I took it,” Hall said.It was a long journey back for Hall, who, despite being named a captain in 2012, missed 9 of 12 games because of two separate injuries.“It was tough, it wasn’t as tough because we won every game, so I feel like if we had lost a couple of games it would have been even tougher because I would have felt like I could’ve helped,” Hall said when asked about his time spent on the bench last season. “But we won every game so I was happy for my teammates.”During the offseason, it was believed that Hall would fill the H-back role in Meyer’s offense, but senior wide receiver Chris Fields started at the position Saturday, due to his ability to both run and catch the ball.Hall said he spent time preparing to be the H-back, but was also ready if he was needed as a traditional running back.“I was going to be the H and coach told me I had to learn both positions, so wherever they put me, I’m going to do what I have to do to help the team win,” Hall said.Hall finished the game with three catches for 14 yards to go along with his rushing total, but also caught a pass for a two-point conversion from senior quarterback Kenny Guiton.The two-point conversion was the second in a row for OSU, with Guiton being in on both conversions.“The first one we had a guy over to the right…basically Drew called it for me. He was like ‘You want me to block ‘em?’ and I said ‘Go ahead.’ I ran it in. And then the next one they had about four guys there, and I’m like they don’t have enough to hold Jordan and the offensive line. So I just threw it out,” Guiton said.Hall was glad to see the team come out to a fast start, taking a 23-0 lead after the first quarter, but felt that after that the team got complacent and slowed their pace.“Coach (offensive coordinator Tom Herman) Herman challenged us to come out fast, get things going, and I think we did that,” Hall said. “In the second half we slowed down a little bit, but we’ll be better next week.”Senior running back Carlos Hyde, the expected starter heading into the season, will return from suspension on Sept. 21 against Florida A&M. With Hall’s performance in the opener, it will be interesting to see what Meyer decides to do in the backfield.Hall isn’t worried about the return of Hyde, saying it’s about the team, not his individual stats.“We’re all brothers on the team, whatever we’ve got to do to get a win and do what our goal is this year, that’s our main focus,” Hall said.OSU next plays host to San Diego State at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 7 at Ohio Stadium.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman waves to the crowd during the Super Bowl Parade Feb. 5 in Seattle.Courtesy of MCTIn the two weeks between the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl XLVIII, every person who encountered any type of sports media likely learned the name of Richard Sherman.The third-year cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks stole headlines from many other worthy story lines heading into the biggest sporting event of the year.Denver Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning breaking single-season passing records and leading the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl in his second season after returning from a career-threatening neck injury?The NFL’s best offense squaring off against the NFL’s best defense in a true test of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object?How would the Seahawks’ offense, with running back Marshawn Lynch arguably being the only player who would rank in the top 10 of NFL players at his position (Lynch finished with 1,257 yards on the ground, good for sixth in the league), keep up with the prolific scoring of the Broncos?All of these buzzworthy topics took a backseat to the controversy surrounding the 25-year-old defensive back’s on-camera reaction to a sideline reporter’s questions after the Seahawks’ Jan 19 victory.Sherman’s deflection of a pass intended for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree into the waiting arms of linebacker Malcolm Smith sealed the NFC Championship victory and a Super Bowl berth for Seattle.With the attention of the football world on him, Sherman had set himself up for a potentially huge payday and possibly some new endorsement deals.After Sunday’s game, Sherman’s name did not make the front page of many newspapers after he turned in a quiet but efficient performance in Seattle’s 43-8 victory over Denver.He was credited with three tackles and one pass deflection in a game where his most noticeable effects on the game were the two times play was stopped while Sherman sprawled on the turf in pain.Sherman was carted off the field during the fourth quarter with a high ankle sprain, but returned to give a relatively subdued interview — a far cry from the outburst that garnered so much attention two weeks prior.He had practically forcibly grabbed the spotlight while enthusiastically proclaiming himself to be the “best corner in the game” in the postgame interview with Fox’s Erin Andrews after his team’s 23-17 win.Despite not making any spectacular individual plays or boasting an impressive stat line, Sherman played an integral role in a team effort that held Denver and its NFL MVP quarterback to one score in the entire game.Manning never looked comfortable in the pocket, and he often checked down to short-yardage passes. He threw two interceptions, lost a fumble, was sacked, was involved in a safety after his center snapped the ball over his head, and had eight of his passes batted down in a disappointing outing.Sherman might not have earned a spot on the Super Bowl highlight reel, but at least he did not turn in a dud like Manning.Most importantly, Sherman added “Super Bowl Champion” to a résumé that already includes being a two-time first-team All-Pro and Stanford graduate.Hopefully, his calmer postgame demeanor this time around will silence his critics, at least temporarily. Social media exploded with derision and racial slurs directed toward Sherman after his outspoken on-air rant in the Andrews interview.Despite being loud, Sherman does not have any obvious character flaws or negative history and would actually make a great role model for young athletes.He was salutatorian of his high school class of Dominguez High School in Compton, Calif., and attended a college known for academics instead of athletics, graduating after five years with a degree in communications and starting a master’s instead of leaving early for the NFL.“I really wanted to make that known to people that you can go to Stanford from Compton,” Sherman said when he was drafted.After the deciding play in the NFC Championship Game, Sherman congratulated Crabtree by saying “helluva game” and extending a handshake. Crabtree reacted by shoving Sherman’s facemask, which presumably was the catalyst for Sherman’s now-infamous rant.The world should judge Sherman on his credentials and achievements instead of his volume in one interview. He’s proven himself to be one of the best corners in the league, if not the best, as he claimed. Or, if Sherman goes off on another rant, maybe he can rant about his support of academics, good sportsmanship and opposition of illicit drugs. It would be hard to call him a “thug” after a rant like that.
