A new plan for the extensions rollout will come in the next few weeks.
|tm||US District judge Victor Marrero ruled in favor of the Sprint -T-Mobile merger, which still needs the California Public Utilities Commission's approval to go forward. Attorneys general from a dozen states argued the merger would stifle competition adn raise prices. But the judge found that Sprint "does not have a sustainable long-term competitive strategy and will in fact cease to be a truly national," if the merger was not allowed. The case may yet be appealed and the Attorneys General are reviewing their options.||https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/11/sprint-soars-after-judge-approves-its-merger-with-t-mobile.html|
|pb||Apple has joined the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance which makes a Universal 2nd Factor-- or U2F-- an open standard meant to replace passwords.|
Other members include Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, and Samsung.
Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Opera browsers natively support U2F, and in iOS 13.3, Safari also supports FIDO2-compliant physical security keys like YubiKey.
|tm||Google is partnering with the non-profit Defending Digital Campaigns-- or DDC-- to distribute Titan security keys for free to political groups, plus offer help setting up the second factor keys. DDC already offers reduced price Yubikeys.||https://www.engadget.com/2020/02/11/google-free-titan-security-keys-secure-political-campaigns/|
|Let's talk a little more about...|
|:35||pb||The US FTC has requested information from Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft about mergers that were too small to report to antitrust agencies.|
The companies are asked to provide terms, scope, structure and purpose for each transaction made between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2019.
They will also be asked to provide details on post-acquisition integration, product development and pricing.
The FTC said the request was part of a study of the issue of companies buying potential competitors to reduce competition.
The results of the study are intended to inform future policy.
|:37||sl||Facebook, Vivo and Intel joined Amazon, Sony, LG, Ericsson, McAfee, NTT Docomo and Nvidia in canceling plans to attend Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which starts February 24. Google and Microsoft are still planning to go to MWC but more companies are still reviewing plans. 2800 exhibitors are still planning to attend as of Tuesday morning. The GSMA has said any attendee from China must prove they were quarantined for two weeks prior to the show. Reuter's source says the GSMA board will meet Friday to discuss canceling the conference altogether. The board contains 26 leaders of telecoms groups and is chaired by Stéphane Richard, the CEO of Orange.||https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-51458997|
|:41||tm||Switzerland's CryptoAG started building code-making devices for the US Army in World War II and provides encryption systems to more than 120 countries today. Throughout the Cold War the company was secretly owned by the US CIA and Germany's BND intelligence agencies. The BND left the company in the mid 90s but the CIA stake ended in 2016. The advent of digital encryption reduced the usage and utility of the company for the agencies.|
But At its height the intelligence agencies used their access to Crypto AG to access communications during the Iranian hostage crisis the Falklands War, the Egypt-ISrael peace negotiations and Libya's bombing of a West Berlin disco in 1986. Iranian communications were allegedly 80-90 percent readable during the Iran Iraq war of the 1980s according to documents seen but the Washington Post and German broadcaster ZDF. SwissInfo reports the Swiss government has officially opened an investigation into Crypto, and the general export license for Crypto devices has been suspended "until open questions have been clarified."
Also out of Microsoft Developer day, Windows 10X separates system, driver and apps in a way that lets it reboot and apply an OS update in 90 seconds. Microsoft uses container technology for Win32 apps meaning they cannot interfere with system files or data. Also if Windows 10X runs on an Intel Lakefield processor, developers can choose which core the app runs on. Power full apps can run on the larger core for performance while lightweight apps can run on the smaller core and save battery.
