Click on the toothbrush, toggle the flange and press 'Harp'.An editor on the Features Desk [no, not El Reg's – Ed] buzzed me earlier in the afternoon on the company-issued support mobile – you can't mistake it, it's the one with a one-inch mono LCD display and physical buttons – to complain that "the system doesn't work".OK, bits of it work, but as a whole it's a poorly conceived, hissing crater of failure.The system in question is a content management project we've been rolling out, but for most users "the system" is an all-purpose noun that encompasses everything in their work environment from the moment they step into the building.Books and magazines would explain what these things did and where they were, often with isometric diagrams to illustrate.Faced with an all-in-one display unit with everything built into the back – much like a smartphone when you think about it – the average Mo Public sees a computer as a single thing that goes wrong in its entirety.

Google is making it easier for iPhone and iPad users to verify sign-ins with the announcement that Apple device owners will now be able to use their Android device as a security key.The search giant recently revealed that it had developed a new Bluetooth-based protocol which allows smartphones running Android 7.0 or later to act as a security key for two-factor authentication.According to Google, 100,000 users have already started using their Android smartphones as security keys.The technology is currently limited to Chrome sign-ins but now Apple device owners will be able to utilize their Android smartphone to sign-in without the need for a physical security key.Security keys offer extra protection to users that are concerned their devices might get hacked and even Google's own employees used them to prevent phishing attacks.When the company announced that modern Android smartphones can now be used as security keys, it also highlighted the fact that its OS is now FIDO2 Certified.

Spain's top professional football league, La Liga, has been fined $284k by the country's data protection agency for using the league's mobile app to spy on its fans.The app, which has been downloaded on millions of devices, was reportedly used by La Liga to monitor bars showing football matches in an effort to catch establishments that showed games on television without a license.Fans that downloaded the app did so to stay up to date with schedules, player rankings, statistics and league news but few realized that it also was able to determine when and where they're watching games.The Spanish newspaper El País reported that the league informed authorities that the app detected when users were in bars and would then use the microphones on their smartphones to record audio.By using a technology similar to the app Shazam, the La Liga app would then use the recording to determine if the user was watching a soccer game.If so, officials would use the location of their device to determine if the bar they were in had a license to play the game.

After at least a month of testing, Spotify is rolling out an updated library look for its premium users that will separate podcasts and music more clearly.Currently, the layout for a premium users’ library is tricky to navigate, with all your media — playlists, songs, albums, artists, podcasts, and videos — crammed together at the top.This new design, while not necessarily a monumental change to how people listen on the audio platform, makes the experience slightly more pleasant, especially considering that people haven’t loved Spotify’s podcast treatment.Podcasts on Spotify are currently only organized by shows that users follow, unplayed shows, and downloaded shows, which is to say it’s chaotic.In the new design, the podcast category will be broken up into three sections: episodes, downloads, and shows.The episodes tab will list new episodes or allow people to resume episodes they’ve already started.

Facebook is launching a market research app it is calling “Study from Facebook”, that will allow users to sell the social networking giant information about how they use competitor apps.The firm said it is intending to be as transparent and open as possible about the app, and will keep their data safe, but Facebook has not revealed how much it will actually pay for people’s data.The move comes as Facebook seeks a more “privacy focused” future for the social networking platform, a big change from Mark Zuckerberg’s previous stance on the subject.Facebook revealed the new Android app in a blog posting by product manager Sagee Ben-Zedeff.“Earlier this year, we announced that we’d be shifting our focus to reward-based market research programs, which means that all research participants are compensated,” Ben-Zedeff wrote.“We’ll run ads to encourage people to participate in this market research program.

Facebook obtained personal and sensitive device data on about 187,000 users of its now-defunct Research app, which Apple banned earlier this year after the app violated its rules.The social media giant said in a letter to lawmakers — which TechCrunch obtained — that it collected data on 31,000 users in the U.S., including 4,300 teenagers.The rest of the collected data came from users in India.Earlier this year, a TechCrunch investigation found both Facebook and Google were abusing their Apple-issued enterprise developer certificates, designed to only allow employees to run iPhone and iPad apps used only inside the company.The investigation found the companies were building and providing apps for consumers outside Apple’s App Store, in violation of Apple’s rules.Apple banned the apps by revoking Facebook’s enterprise developer certificate — and later Google’s enterprise certificate.
La Liga, Spain's top professional soccer league, has been slapped with a €250,000 ($280,000) fine for violating user privacy after the league's official app activated the microphones on user cell phones, El País reports.The app spied on users in an effort to identify bars that were showing pirated streams of soccer games.Spanish users download the app to get game times, scores, and other information about soccer games.But the app also included a function designed to help the league identify venues that were streaming soccer games without paying the appropriate licensing fees.The app would use the GPS sensor to determine whether the phone was located in a bar or other venue that might show soccer streams.If it was, the app would listen for audio from a copyrighted game.
