Google is warning developers to include prominent crash reporting disclosures in apps or face removal

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

There’s been an uptick among Android developers receiving warnings from the Google Play team. The issue appears to be crash reporting, which is a common feature developers build into apps. Google now seems to be of the opinion that most crash reports count as sensitive data, and developers have to include a “Prominent Disclosure.” Affected developers are getting 30 days to implement a fix and resubmit, but as usual, Google’s violation email is light on details.

Facebook will carry a health warning within five years

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

I predict that in five years time, Facebook will carry a health warning. Of course, this is an outrageous prediction, but watching the fiddling going on at Facebook and other online giants while their empires burn, it’s clear they must instigate significant changes before regulators impose new controls. I don’t think that Facebook will carry a health warning not because it’s particularly bad for your health, but because it’s failing to learn the lessons of the past and come up with adequate responses to criticism There are two main reasons. One, like many giant tech companies before it, it has…

YouTube spanks Alex Jones, offers dire warning for future videos

A media organization known for dealing in half-truths and complete falsehoods found itself on shaky ground this week after YouTube pulled one of its videos. Alex Jones, a purveyor of far-reaching conspiracy theories aimed at the right — and pills that apparently turn you red — received a warning from YouTube after portraying survivors of the Parkland school shootings as paid crisis actors. The video focused on David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland massacre on Valentine’s Day that saw 17 of his classmates gunned down. Hogg, a 17-year-old senior fell into the spotlight over the past week after a…

U.S. intelligence agencies are still warning against buying Huawei and ZTE phones

The Best Guide To Selling Your Old Phones With High Profit

 Things are still looking pretty bleak for Huawei’s plans to conquer the U.S. market. Earlier this week, half a dozen top members of intelligence agencies, including the FBI, CIA and NSA reaffirmed surveillance concerns about the company and fellow Chinese smartphone maker ZTE. All of this is nothing new, of course. The companies’ troubles date back at least as far back as 2012,… Read More

Some New Yorkers may have woken up to erroneous text alerts about a tsunami warning

A test at the National Weather Service appears to have gone awry.

A test of the U.S. National Weather Service’s system to warn Americans about tsunamis appeared to go awry this morning, as residents in states like New York erroneously received alerts that the east coast might be in harm’s way.

At about 8:30 a.m. ET, NWS officials said it sought to complete a monthly test of its tsunami warning system — with an alert that had the word “test” in its message — yet “some users received this test message as an actual tsunami warning.”

The message appears to have been conveyed through third-party apps, perhaps including Accuweather, not the U.S. government’s wireless and broadcast emergency alert systems. A test of those alerts failed in January, after Hawaii officials accidentally warned residents about an incoming ballistic missile, sparking widespread panic — and later, a federal investigation.

Today, though, Twitter users around the country once again expressed confusion and outrage about the NWS mishap, while the weather service sought to clarify in a series of tweets that there was no tsunami threatening the east coast.

A spokeswoman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which houses NWS, did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday, nor did a spokesperson for Accuweather.

A spokesman for the FCC, meanwhile, said the agency is looking into the matter.

People in Hawaii received a false alert warning that a missile was headed their way

The smartphone alert was sent in error, officials say, after an early panic

People in Hawaii received an erroneous emergency alert on their smartphones Saturday warning them of a “ballistic missile threat inbound” — and stressing it is was “not a drill.”

The alert quickly stirred intense panic, prompting many to say they took cover — then outrage, as locals and droves of social media users recognized it was sent by mistake. Federal and state authorities later stressed there was no threat to the island, where tensions remain high due to recent threats from North Korea.

Congressional lawmakers, meanwhile, quickly called for accountability — and the Federal Communications Commission said it would be open its own investigation, a spokesman confirmed to Recode. The agency oversees the technical elements of the U.S. government’s emergency alert system; it did not send out the message.

The alert appeared to go out shortly after 8 a.m. local time, according to tweeted photos — including one from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who represents Hawaii in the U.S. Congress.

The alert, which also interrupted television broadcasts, caught officials at North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, completely by surprise. A spokesman there told Recode on Saturday that it was looking into the matter.

Soon after, Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency reported that a missile had not been launched. But it took state officials about 38 minutes to send an update, with the correct information, to its citizens.

Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz, for his part, said that the alert had been sent as a result of “human error.” The state’s governor later told CNN that an official had essentially pressed the wrong button.

Later Wednesday, a White House spokeswoman said that President Donald Trump “has been briefed on the state of Hawaii’s emergency management exercise,” adding: “This was purely a state exercise.”
