We live in a cruel world, a world where people find joy in spoiling story endings for others on the internet.They see a movie on release day (or worse yet, pirate a movie), turn around and spew the ending of said movie on the web.Today I’ve been shown a tool that could mitigate internet-based spoilers in a big way.The state of the spoiler-laden InternetPicture it: July 16th, 2005.It was on that day – that morning, for quite a few people, that the book was out, and read, too!

Professional gamers like Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Michael "shroud" Grzesiek have millions of followers and their livestreams have tens of thousands of viewers at any given moment.Video game publishers are paying streamers to promote their games in lieu of traditional marketing strategies, and so far it's been working.Tens of thousands of viewers are watching these livestreams at any given moment, and video game publishers are increasingly eager to capitalize on those captive audiences.Night Media Inc CEO Reed Duchscher told the Journal that streamers that consistently have 15,000 or more concurrent viewers can command up between $25,000 to $35,000 per hour to play newly released games.The top streamers can earn even more based on the size of their audience.While best known for playing "Fortnite," Blevins reportedly received $1 million to livestream "Apex Legends," a newly released battle royale game from one of the video game industry's largest publishers, Electronic Arts.

In the year since Screenvision’s last upfront, plenty has happened in the cinema world, from Movie Pass switching business models and angering customers to the box office success of Avengers: Endgame.It’s partly why Screenvison is leaning in to the narrative that the movie industry’s more vibrant and alive than ever before for its pitch to advertisers, both in terms of ticket sales and attendance, according to John Partilla, CEO of Screenvision.“[Movies are] one of the more stable mediums that are out there in terms of viewerships,” Partilla said.“We have to really remind people that this is one of the few remaining places to really connect in to premium, captivated audiences with a platform that’s increasingly stable and robust.”To back up that message, the company is rolling out is a smart screen network, which is really a digital movie pixel to give advertisers the attribution and retargeting tools they need.Screenvision unveiled the new offering at an event Tuesday in New York that featured appearances by actor Vince Vaughn, actress Hillary Swank and a performance by Idina Menzel.

Telsa CEO Elon Musk should admit to his conduct on Twitter, according to a commissioner for the US financial watchdog, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).The comments by SEC commissioner Robert Jackson made clear he did not support the agreement reached last week between Musk and the SEC.Musk’s SEC settlement does not mean he is clear of legal issues however.Indeed, Musk’s controversial tweet about one of the rescuers of the Thai boy football team that were trapped in a flooded cave in 2018, continues to haunt him.This was because a US judge this week refused to dismiss the defamation complaint filed by British cave diver Vernon Unsworth, meaning Musk will now face a lawsuit over his ‘pedo guy’ tweet.And Musk’s conduct on Twitter continues to be a source of concern, and has resulted in a SEC commissioner making a rare public statement on the matter after the settlement deal was approved by US federal judge.

A former employee of Chinese drone maker DJI was sentenced to six months in prison and fined RMB 200,000 for unauthorized disclosure of the company’s data to code-sharing platform Github, according to the prosecutor involved in the case.The office of the People’s Procuratorate of Shenzhen posted on messaging app WeChat on Friday the sentence, though it did not reveal the company’s name.A DJI spokeswoman confirmed to TechNode on Monday that it was the subject of the data breach case.The codes revealed included those used in an aircraft management platform and spraying system solution, which caused losses of RMB 1.14 million ($170,000) for the company, according to DJI.According to The Economic Observer, the drone company reported to police in September 2017 that one of its servers had been hacked.An American researcher named Kevin Finisterre, referred to as a “hacker” by Chinese media, sought out the data as part of DJI’s de-bugging program, which pays cash rewards to individuals who report bugs to the company.

Bowers & Wilkins got a new Silicon Valley-based parent company three years ago, and now, the classic British audio brand has a new line of premium wireless speakers.The new Formation Suite starts at £900 for a very alien-looking thing called the Wedge and tops out at £3,500 with the even more alien-looking Duo.Based on the sales pitch, these new wireless speakers can do anything a Sonos system can do and cost three times as much.Eva is the brainchild of Gideon Yu, co-owner of the American football team the San Francisco 49ers and former chief financial officer of Facebook.The acquisition makes a lot more sense now that Bowers & Wilkins is surging headlong into the wireless speaker world, especially since Eva’s original mission was to make “products that will change how people interact and think about the home.” These new audio products are certainly different.Aside from the price tag—which is at the lower range of the Bowers & Wilkins product lineup, by the way—the company claims the new speakers set themselves apart with mesh networking technology.

On any given April 20th in recent years, for instance, you can find all sorts of weed-themed stories pegged around the unofficial holiday for marijuana.That’s not so in 1999: a search for “420” brings up precious few results.Instead, the science and technology news of late April included one big company shake-up, some odd developments in space, and an extremely doomed game studio founded by Michael Crichton.Here’s this week in tech, 20 years ago.So, citing a new need to “move at Internet speed,” the company ousted its CEO Eckhard Pfeiffer in a shake-up that surprised the tech world.As The New York Times explained, Crichton had co-written an adventure game called Amazon in the 1980s, but he’d left the field until technology improved:

Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg may find himself in hot water with federal regulators.The Washington Post, which cited two people familiar with the discussion, reported that the Federal Trade Commission is looking into how to hold Zuckerberg accountable for Facebook's privacy mishaps.That includes examining Zuckerberg's past remarks about privacy.The FTC started investigating Facebook last year after revelations surfaced that UK political consultancy Cambridge Analytica harvested the data of up to 87 million Facebook users without their permission.The agency is focusing on whether the social network violated a legal agreement it had with the US government to keep its users' data private.The investigation is still ongoing, but Facebook could also face a fine that's larger than the record-setting $22.5 million the FTC imposed on Google in 2012.

Facebook has admitted to harvesting email contacts from 1.5 million people without permission.Since May 2016, Facebook collected all email contacts when some new users signed up to the antisocial network.Business Insider then spotted that if you did this a dialogue box popped up warning you – with no chance to cancel, pause or opt out – that it was importing all your contacts.The company has now admitted that the emails were collected, analysed, used for ad targeting and to push its add-a-friend feature.It then changed the text informing users of what was happening but neglected to remove the functionality which sucked up the contacts.The company said it didn't read the contents of the emails and that the actual contacts were "inadvertently uploaded".

On Saturday, TechCrunch reported that hackers had gained access to the company’s email service after compromising a customer support account.Microsoft has confirmed that people using MSN.com, Hotmail.com, and Outlook.com accounts were affected, though it’s unclear how many.The company contacted at least some affected users and assured them that the “content of any e-mails or attachments” had not been accessed.The breach, Microsoft said in an email to some customers, was limited to some metadata, including folder names and email account names, plus some limited content, e.g., the subject lines of emails.In a statement to TechCrunch, it also described the number of accounts affected as “a limited subset of consumer accounts.”One email to customers read, in part: “Our data indicates that account-related information (but not the content of any e-mails) could have been viewed, but Microsoft has no indication why that information was viewed or how it may have been used.” (Note: Email subject lines are actually considered content, not metadata, in the eyes of the law.)

Ex-Nissan exec Jose Munoz may have bailed on the troubled Japanese firm amid its big Carlos Ghosn scandal, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been busy since then.Automotive News reports on Monday that Munoz is working out the contractual details to take up the mantle of Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai.That would be a massive jump up the corporate ladder.His new position would also entail him taking over as CEO of Hyundai Motor America.Not bad for a guy who until January was the Chief Performance Officer at what is arguably the lowest-performance Japanese automaker.Munoz also headed up both US and Chinese operations for the brand.

By reducing the impurities of iron with an innovative oxidizing air blast, the process ushered in a new wave of inexpensive, high-volume steelmaking.Following in the footsteps of founders like Bessemer, today’s innovative startups are discovering that it often makes more sense to launch “full stack” businesses that provide a traditional service optimized with proprietary automation measures.In his words, a full stack startup is a company that “builds a complete, end-to- end product or service that bypasses existing companies.”The full stack methodology gave birth to companies like Uber and Tesla prior to the apex of the deep learning revolution.Going full stack comes with the advantage of being able to operate outside traditional incentive structures that limit the ability for large players in legacy industries to implement automation measures.In addition to rejiggering old incentive structures à la Bessemer, going full stack opens up opportunities for companies to integrate labeling workflows into more traditional roles, to reap the full benefits of virtuous feedback loops, and to avoid countless complex process integrations.

Hackers compromised Microsoft’s web-based email services, including Outlook.com accounts and MSN and Hotmail addresses, for months by using a customer support agent’s credentials.In an email sent to affected users, Microsoft said that the hackers were possibly able to access email addresses, subject lines of emails, folder labels, and the names of other email addresses that the user contacted.Fortunately, the content of emails, including attachments, were not compromised, nor were login credentials such as passwords.The hackers were able to carry out the security breach, which happened from January 1 to March 28, by compromising the credentials of a customer support agent.Microsoft has identified the credentials that the hackers used and disabled them.Microsoft warned that affected users may receive more spam emails, and may be on the receiving end of phishing attempts.
