Youtube to Launch Music Streaming Service Next Week

Youtube to Launch Music Streaming Service Next Week


Google’s YouTube will launch a music streaming service next week, it said on Thursday, looking to use its popular internet video brand to tap the growing market for paid music streaming.

YouTube Music will launch on May 22, and include features such as personalized playlists based on a user’s YouTube history. The service is expected to eventually replace Google Play Music, the Alphabet Inc unit’s existing music streaming brand.

“Google has an advantage given YouTube’s more than a billion users and viewers. So, it has opportunities to convert some into YouTube Music listeners or premium subscribers,” said Ali Mogharabi, analyst at Morningstar Research.

The growing adoption of paid music streaming has helped wean a generation of music listeners away from free or pirated music, and has led to services such as Spotify and Apple Music becoming the recording industry’s single biggest revenue source.

Facebook Details Scale of Abuse on Its Site

Facebook Details Scale of Abuse on Its Site


Facebook says it deleted or added warnings to about 29 million posts that broke its rules on hate speech, graphic violence, terrorism and sex, over the first three months of the year.

It is the first time that the firm has published figures detailing the scale of efforts to enforce its rules. Facebook is developing artificial intelligence tools to support the work of its 15,000 human moderators. But the report suggest the software struggles to spot some types of abuse.

For example, the algorithms only flagged 38% of identified hate speech posts over the period, meaning 62% were only addressed because users had reported them. By contrast, the firm said its tools spotted 99.5% of detected propaganda posted in support of Islamic State, Al-Qaeda and other affiliated groups, leaving only 0.5% to the public.

The figures also reveal that Facebook believes users were more likely to have experienced graphic violence and adult nudity via its service over the January-to-March quarter than the prior three months.

But it said it had yet to develop a way to judge if this was also true of hate speech and terrorist propaganda.

"As we learn about the right way to do this, we will improve the methodology," commented Facebook's head of product management, Guy Rosen.

Samsung’s market share drops 2.4% despite early launch of S9/S9+, says IDC

Samsung’s market share drops 2.4% despite early launch of S9/S9+, says IDC


Smartphone market leader Samsung saw its market share fall 2.4% year-on-year in the first quarter of this year, reports IDC, despite launching its flagship S9 and S9+ handsets earlier than usual.

IDC does, however, note that the bulk of S9/S9+ sales will fall into Q2 ...

DC reports that the market as a whole experienced a fall in sales of 2.9% during the same period.

According to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, smartphone vendors shipped a total of 334.3 million units during the first quarter of 2018 (1Q18), resulting in a 2.9% decline when compared to the 344.4 million units shipped in the first quarter of 2017.

It now looks as if consumers are not willing to shell out this kind of money for a new device that brings minimal upgrades over their current device.

The success of Apple's high-priced iPhone X did, however, see the company achieve significantly greater growth in both revenue and profit thanks to a dramatic uplift in average selling price.

Twitter says bug caused user passwords to be stored in plaintext internal log

Twitter says bug caused user passwords to be stored in plaintext internal log


Twitter is urging all of its more than 330 million users to immediately change their passwords after a bug exposed them in plain text. While Twitter’s investigation showed that there was no evidence that any breach or misuse of the unmasked passwords occurred, the company is recommending that users change their Twitter passwords out of an “abundance of caution,” both on the site itself and anywhere else they may have used that password, which includes third-party apps like Twitterrific and TweetDeck.

According to Twitter, the bug occurred due to an issue in the hashing process that masks passwords by replacing them with a random string of characters that get stored on Twitter’s system. But due to an error with the system, apparently passwords were being saved in plain text to an internal log, instead of masking them with the hashing process. Twitter claims to have found the bug on its own and removed the passwords. It’s working to make sure that similar issues don’t come up again.

Twitter hasn’t revealed how many users’ passwords may have potentially been compromised or how long the bug was exposing passwords before it found and fixed the issue. But the fact that the company is urging its entire user base to change their passwords indicates that it would seem to be a significant number of users.

Microsoft Launches Africa’s 1st Software Testing centre in Nairobi

18:05 0


Microsoft Corporation has opened Africa’s first Software Testing Centre in Nairobi, putting Kenya in the global picture as home to technological innovation. Kenya becomes the fourth country in the world after China, Poland and India to host such a centre, which will employ more than 1,000 youth. DP Ruto praised the move. He said technology is a crucial ingredient for achieving Jubilee’s Big Four agenda. Ruto spoke during the launch in Hurlingham, Nairobi, yesterday.

The DP said the friendly policies put in place by the government had created a fertile environment for multinational companies to set up their operations in Kenya. “This is a win for our economy; this is a big vote of confidence for Kenya, in our tech community and its abilities. This development will define our prosperity,” he said. Ruto said the government is committed to making Kenya a chief exporter and producer rather than a mere consumer of technological innovation.

“The government wants a vibrant technology sector, a Silicon Savannah and we believe if we can build a proper community of engineers, developers, coders and designers, we can deliver the innovations that will define the prosperity of this country in the future,” he said. Techno Brain engineers will access the latest Windows Operating System. The Nairobi test centre will get exclusive access to Windows Insider software builds that are yet to be released in the market.
