It doesn't matter who owns the server, since even if it is MS Ireland, they're almost certainly a wholly owned subsidiary of MS US, meaning that MS US owns that data regardless.And if the US government compels MS US to hand the data over, they'll be making a request that's illegal in the country where the action must be undertaken, regardless of whether it's MS US or MS Ireland doing the deed, so in that regard it also doesn't matter who owns the server.Of course, just because it doesn't matter who owns the server doesn't mean it's legal for the US government to make that request, nor that it's legal for MS (regardless of which brand we're talking about) to hand the data over.Ideally, the people on the ground in Ireland would simply refuse to comply with the order if MS was compelled to hand over the data.After all, the US government has no authority over them, nor an ability to prosecute them, nor an ability to pursue a prosecution of them via diplomatic channels given that the request was illegal in the first place.In fact, the proper way for this to work is that the US government uses those diplomatic channels to seek an extraction of the data pursuant to its treaties with Ireland or the EU.

Hyperloop One has received a significant investment in Hyperloop One – the official figure hasn’t been revealed, but it’s enough that the Hyperloop tech startup, which aims to create networks of high-speed transportation tunnels to various locales across the globe, has changed its name.Virgin Hyperloop One is the entity’s official moniker going forward, which is quite a mouthful.Virgin Hyperloop One’s rebrand will mean it gains from association with Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, whose high-tech transportation exploits include Virgin Galactic and other space-based ventures.The goal of the company under the rebrand remains the same, and it’ll continue to explore the best places and partners for deploying its high-speed transportation tech, which will zoom pods at high speed down extremely low pressure tubes to reduce trip times over land from hours to minutes.The money isn’t the only connection between Hyperloop One and Virgin; the Hyperloop company’s President of Engineering Josh Giegel is a former Virgin employee.Branson noted in a blog post that he also visited Hyperloop One earlier this summer to view its technology first-hand, at the Hyperloop One DevLoop test track site in Nevada outside Los Vegas.

Here's something you don't see everyday: a Silicon Valley platform, whose revenue is based on advertising, has shunned a political advertisement because it's "inflammatory."The micro-blogging service on Monday took down a Blackburn campaign video ad that said, "I fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts, thank God."In the advertisement, Blackburn also announced her 2018 Senate bid to replace retiring Republican Bob Corker.Blackburn tweeted that "@Twitter shut down our video ad, claiming it's 'inflammatory & 'negative.'"The video is blanketing Twitter and social media now, but Twitter has solely blocked the ability to pay to promote the advertising campaign.Twitter hasn't removed Blackburn's tweet or other tweets from people who link to the video.

Despite being designed for one specific purpose — to shoot action — GoPro cameras pack a lot of features into a small package.This is part of the reason why they’re so popular, but it can also make it kind of difficult to figure out which GoPro model best suits your needs.With the release of the Hero6 Black, GoPro now has roughly half a dozen models for sale, many with overlapping features that can make differentiating them a bit confusing.To save you the hassle of sorting through spec sheets, we’ve summarized the best parts of each to help you pick the best GoPro camera for your adrenaline-fueled needs.(Not included in this list is the GoPro Fusion, a 360-degree action camera for creating immersive VR content.)The GoPro Hero4 Silver and Black have fallen far behind their successors in terms of specs, but they’re still fantastic cameras in their own right.

During september and October, many Android manufacturers heard of different component manufacturers in Asia with the questions about the 3d-sensors, writes KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a new report to investors.the Companies ' interest started after Apple's launch of the Iphone X, which has changed from the fingerprint reader to a chinese art known as Face ID, which reads out the face shape in 3d instead of its two-dimensional representation as in the past chinese art, which has been used by Microsoft and Samsung.in the Past, manufacturers have competed to be first to a fingerprint reader mounted under the screen, but according to Kuo, it's now only a minor improvement of existing technology and not revolutionary.Face ID-competitors being developed right now by Qualcomm in collaboration with Himax, Orbbec, and Mantis Vision.the Solution from Qualcomm/Himax should have come the furthest.An advantage for manufacturers who want to develop cheaper phones is that the 3d-sensors work with lcd monitors.

Maybe it’s a sign of the uncertain world we currently live in (hello, incipient nuclear apocalypse) but automakers can’t stop imagining beefy trucks perfect for escaping burning cities or ramming through zombie hordes.Toyota is joining the club with the Tj Cruiser concept, “a new van and fusion genre” that targets crossover buyers.The goal is flexibility, which is pretty important when all the potable water is tainted and you need to raid the abandoned Walmart down the block.Finally, “Cruiser” has been well used in Toyota’s SUV range, and “expresses the power of the vehicle” the automaker says.Sensibly, Toyota’s designers started with the most basic – and flexible – shape, so the Tj Cruiser concept is squared off like a utilitarian van.The hood, roof, and bumpers are coated with a scratch- and dirt-resistant material to shake off highway grime and parking lot dings alike.

New atomic clock will help answer some fundamental questions about quantum physics.And maybe stop us being late for meetings, too!An international team of physicists want to challenge that assertion, courtesy of their new atomic clock — which is capable of measuring time down to a couple quadrillionths of a second.Atomic clocks have been around since 1948, but the new design puts a fresh spin on the technology.It packs strontium atoms — used for carrying out the time measurement — into a tiny three-dimensional cube at 1,000 times the density of previous one-dimensional atomic clocks.Doing so allows the researchers to then use ultra-stable lasers to harness the behavior of so-called ‘quantum gas’ to create a practical measurement device.

With all the talk about the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X and other ginormous phones, it's easy to forget that not everybody wants a big screen.Indeed, some users prefer the pocket-friendliness of a smaller model, to say nothing of the ease of operating it with one hand.Of course, this being Apple, smaller doesn't mean cheaper: The iPhone SE starts at $349.For a limited time, Walmart has the iPhone SE (32GB) for Straight Talk for $129 shipped (plus tax).That link will take you to the Space Gray version; it's also available in Rose Gold.Apple's entry-level model offers fast performance, good cameras, sufficient storage (32GB isn't a ton, but it's certainly better than 16GB) and something I consider essential: a headphone jack.

The court agreed with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner’s (DPC) concerns and found that channels that Facebook and other companies use for data transfer from the EU to the US might be illegal.The reason it might be illegal is because the data privacy of EU citizens is threatened by the massive digital surveillance of the US government.This transfer of data to the parent company means that personal data of EU citizens is stored where the US government could employ its questionable mass digital surveillance — and possibly infringe upon the fundamental rights of the EU citizens to privacy.The star of the show: SCCTechnically speaking, the EU bans all data transfers from Europe to any country outside the EEA.This exception is called SCC (Standard Contractual Clauses) and is at the very center of the case.

Equifax announced today that 2.5-million previously uncounted US-based victims were “potentially impacted” by their data breach.While Equifax continues to call them “customers”, the vast majority of these users were victimized by the credit company itself, seeking out and purchasing their personal info before holding it in a series of insecure web-connected locations.Thus far the Equifax data breach puts 145.5-MILLION US citizens in the “potentially impacted” category.As of the 2016 United States Census, there were 125.82-million households in the United States.That’s according to the U.S. Census Bureau, which defines a household as an abode with one or more people living in it.Given the 145.5-million total potentially-impacted citizens Equifax has listed, there’s a pretty good chance that every single household in the USA has at least one member that’s a victim.

GM today announced a strategy to eventually deliver a zero emission product line across all its segments, though it didn’t put a specific timeline on when it would achieve that goal.The process is complex, said Mark Reuss, EVP Global Product Development, and GM doesn’t see there being “one year where we flip a switch and it’s all electric.”Still, GM is committing to rolling out two new all-electric vehicles within the next 18 months, and to having at least 20 new all-electric vehicles in the market by 2023.GM also debuted its new SURUS fuel-cell concept platform today, which is a four-wheel steering concept truck-based vehicle with two electric motors and a flexible design which could work with a range of different vehicles in commercial capacities, including delivery vehicles, trucks or ambulances.This build on previous declarations made by GM CEO Mary Barra, who announced that the company is ultimately committed to world with zero emissions, and zero crashed.The Chevrolet Bolt has helped immensely with progress towards the zero emissions part, Reuss said.
