In a bold redefinition of feminism, a French smart clothes manufacturer has declared that it's totally fine to put topless, objectified women in its ads as long as they're not retouched.Bafflingly called 'Essential' when they're surely anything but , the connected jeans act as wearable sat nav, vibrating to direct you to a destination set in the app.This follows on from similar services embedded in smartwatches, shoes and so on, so it's not a bad idea in itself - though it's a bit weird to have to wear your Internet Jeans when you need to go somewhere.The issue with the jeans isn't so much the pointless addition of connectivity if we berated every new product for that, we'd be here all century but the pictures the brand is using to promote the product, and their pitiful attempts to justify them when called out on Twitter.The women modelling the jeans are all the typical classically attractive specimens we've got used to seeing in every ad ever, but for some reason the company can't adequately explain, none of them have got tops on.Considering Spinali Design is expecting to sell this product to techy women - who already feel enormously alienated by the bro-heavy tech scene and its relentless culture of objectification - they really couldn't have gone about it worse.

Barely a week before he leaves office, U.S. President Barack Obama s administration has authorized controversial new legislation that grants America s 16 intelligence organizations access to raw communications data from the NSA s surveillance efforts.The New York Times reported that on January 3 Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed new regulations that permit the 16 divisions — which include the army, navy, coastguard, CIA and FBI — access to raw signals intelligence information.In the past, information passed on by the NSA was filtered so that an agency would only receive information deemed relevant to their request for data.Now, they will gain access to the full content stash brought in by the NSA s surveillance dragnet, assuming that their request is accepted.Analysts can later apply filters to focus on the more pertinent data, but the government has enacted this change to give its analysts access to more atoms of data.The idea being that they may find useful information that they would otherwise not have gotten.

Apple is locked in a legal battle over the App Store, and according to a recent report, the 9th U.S.Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Apple can indeed be sued by those who claim that the company created a monopoly in the app industry by allowing iOS users to only download and install apps from the App Store.This ruling is essentially a reversal of a decision that was made in 2013.Apple argues that it s basically just renting out App Store space, so users can t sue it in the first place — instead, they can sue developers, who are the ones that set the prices for apps.The case itself dates back to 2012, when users sued Apple for allegedly creating a monopoly in the app market by letting users only download apps from the App Store, and thus only allowing users to download apps that Apple had approved.Because the apps are all approved by Apple, users argued that there was a lack of competition and thus app prices were higher.
