Google has been given four months to change its privacy policy. The verdict came after months of investigation by France's Commision Nationale de L'Informatique. The French commission was working on behalf of the EU's 27 national data regulators and they found legal flaws with Google's approach to use their user's data. One of the concerns is how the tech firm uses their user's browsing history for better targeted advertising.

iStella - the new Italian search engine

The new Italian search engine provided by Tiscali, iStella, is set to be released in November 2012.
It’s not the first time that an Italian company have attempted to make a new search engine became famous. The most recent example, which occurred only several months ago, was Volunia. Today nobody speaks about that and this begs the question of whether the iStella search engine will fare better?

Do we use the Internet in the London Underground stations?

Tuesday I read an article in which Virgin Media announced that the wi-fi network for the London underground will stay free until 2013. Originally, the idea was to give all travelers free access to the Internet only during the 2012 Olympics. Should we be happy about this extension? I mean, do we even use the internet underground?

Mobile Microsoft Office... Finally? A Guaranteed Success?




One of the biggest stories at the moment is the internet back-and-forth raging over the story of Microsoft's long-rumoured and oft-speculated-upon mobile Office suite. A Czech product manager by the name of Petr Bobek appeared to have let the cat out of the bag on Wednesday (10/10/2012) by announcing that mobile versions of Office would be simultaneously be released for OSX, Android and, of course, Microsoft Surface devices but this outburst was countered by Microsoft HQ as false. Strategically, it seems unlikely to be true as they are releasing their own Surface tablets in the near future and having Office as a USP for these will be a key selling-point to set them apart from their rivals. Let's not forget that Apple themselves are rumoured to be releasing a new iPad before Christmas

How this will develop over the coming days is anyone's guess but, as the old saying goes, there's no smoke without fire.
