Eyeo GmbH, the company that makes the popular Adblock Plus software, will today start selling the very thing many of its users hate—advertisements.Today, the company is launching a self-service platform to sell "pre-whitelisted" ads that meet its "acceptable ads" criteria.The new system will let online publishers drag and drop advertisements that meet Eyeo's expectations for size and labeling."The Acceptable Ads Platformhelps publishers who want to show an alternative, nonintrusive ad experience to users with ad blockers by providing them with a tool that lets them implement Acceptable Ads themselves, said Till Faida, co-founder of Adblock Plus.Publishers who place the ads will do so knowing that they won't be blocked by most of the 100 million Adblock Plus users.The software extension's default setting allows for "acceptable ads" to be shown, and more than 90 percent of its users don't change that default setting.

The stereotypical Xbox Live experience is where you boot up a Mature-rated shooter like Call of Duty and end up matched against a team of racist, homophobic 12-year-old boys who don t have parents.But Microsoft has developed ways of dealing with that, and it s revealing how those systems work.Xbox Live has a reputation system where repeat offenders can end up with penalties that should improve the quality of life for everyone else on the service, and Microsoft only partially determines that reputation based on negative reports from people you ve annoyed.Instead, Xbox Live uses an algorithm that looks at data from the games themselves and even how often you end up muted relative to the rest of the online population.If you are constantly spamming Cotton Eye Joe by the Rednex over the voiceline, and everyone you play with mutes you every single match, Xbox Live can see that behavior and punish you for it.If negative feedback piles up, you could end up with a Needs work reputation.Xbox Live will let you know when this happens, and you ll have a chance to build back up to the Good player level.It typically takes over a dozen unique reports or several dozen mutes for your reputation to drop down to Needs Work,' Xbox evangelist Larry Major Nelson Hryb wrote in a blog post.

So do you quit when you re winning or when you re losing?An analysis of Uber drivers reveals an interesting dichotomy in drivers workday quitting-time decisions, according to The New York Times.The question goes beyond just Uber drivers, or ridesharing drivers in general, but to the wider gig economy and even further to anyone who has individual control over their working hours.Behavioral economists who have studied this question cling to opposing conclusions based on their interpretation of the research, says the New York Times.One group claims to have research that shows workers do what makes sense.If the money is flowing the rational group keeps working, and if the flow stops so do they.

EU:n kilpailukomissaari Margethe Vesteger sanoo, että muutkin monikansalliset yhtiöt kuin Apple, jotka ovat kierrättäneet voittojaan veroparatiisien kautta ovat ehkä rikkoneet EU:n sääntöjä.Euroopan komissio tuomitsi juuri teknologiajätti Applen maksamaan 13 miljardia euroja veromätkyjä takaisin Irlannille, jossa yhtiö on hyötynyt erityisen alhaisista veroasteista.Vesteger kertoi Reutersin haastattelussa, että muutkin yritykset, jotka ovat mukana voittojen kierrättämisessä Irlantiin rekisteröityihin tytäryhtiöihin niiden verotuksellisen asuinpaikan ollessa esimerkiski Bermudalla, saattavat joutua samankaltaisiin ongelmiin komission kanssa kuin Apple.Veroja ei ole maksettu missään Irlannin verokoodin tähden , Vestager sanoo.Vestagerin mukaan Applen tapauksessa ongelman ydin oli se, että yhtiöllä oli irlantiin rekisteröity yritys, joka kirjasi suurimman osan voitoista, joita tehtiin ympäri Eurooppaa.Mutta koska koska Irlanti ei pitänyt tytäryhtiötä verovelvollisena siellä, yksikkö pystyi raportoimaan vain pienen verotettavan tulon Irlannin sivuliikkeestä .
