|:33||pb||France’s minister for digital affairs Cedric O said Facebook has agreed to give judges identification data for some French users suspected of hate speech. |
Facebook has previously given French judges identification information related to violent and terrorist acts when French judges formally request it.
Facebook resisted handing over information related to hate speech violations as it is not compelled to do so under US-French legal conventions and worried countries without an independent judiciary would abuse the the privilege.
O says Facebook is only doing this for France.

FedEx returned an attempted shipment of a Huawei P30 phone by a British journalist from PCMag who was trying to send it to a colleague in the US. FedEx says the denial of shipment was an operational error. A previous package destined for a Huawei address in Asia was misrouted in error by FedEx to the US. FedEx fears it may be added to China's "unreliable entities list" as a result. China's foreign ministry has asked FedEx for a full explanation. FedEx's lawsuit says export rules “essentially deputize FedEx to police the contents of the millions of packages it ships daily even though doing so is a virtually impossible task, logistically, economically, and in many cases, legally.”||https://www.reuters.com/article/us-huawei-tech-fedex-usa/fedex-sues-u-s-government-over-impossible-task-of-policing-exports-to-china-idUSKCN1TO047|
|:39||tm||An Australian judge has given Dylan Voller the right to sue media companies over Facebook comments written by their readers about him. Video of Voller being mistreated in prison was aired on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's "Four Corners' program in July 2016. Violelr is now suing News Corp. Fairfax Media (now Nine) and Sky News Australia for defamation. Users made false and comments on stories about Voller published on Facebook by these news outlets and Volelr says they are defamatory. Justice Stephen Rothman found that the media companies were the publishers of the comments in a legal sense as the companies could delay reader comments and monitor if they were defamatory before releasing them to the public. Facebook has no delay function but social media expert Ryan Shelley testified you could put 100 most common english words on a filter list to cause almost all comments to be hidden. Justice Rothman also said the use of Facebook pages is not about freedom of speech but promoting commercial interests. The case now moves to an actual defamation trial, though media companies can appeal Justice Rothman's decision.||https://www.buzzfeed.com/lanesainty/dylan-voller-facebook-defamation|

Some of those students started a company called Light-year in 2017 to make a consumer solar car. Its first prototype, the 5-seater LightYear One has been unveiled with plans to deliver to customers in 2021. The car's roof has five square meters of solar panels that charge the battery up to 12km of range per hour. The battery can go 725 km (450 miles) on a full charge. The Tesla model S has a range of 370 miles. The Lightyear One also supports up to 60kW of fast charging adding 507km of range per hour. Preorders are available now for a deposit of €119,000 with an expected starting price of €149,000.||https://electrek.co/2019/06/25/lightyear-one-solar-electric-car-range/|

|tm||tlfillingim in Discord "I laughed a week or so ago when no one could think of a good use for the 292” Samsung display. As soon as I heard it I immediately said, “That’s a video wall.” Think of every power plant control room you’ve ever seen in a movie. These days many utilities use large screen installations for “situational awareness” where everyone in the room can see when something goes wrong. These routinely run hundreds of thousands of dollars. |
The 100,000 hour rating is roughly 11 years of continuous use. That’s a little low for these things but hopefully that will improve."
Rarely do I get to share my podcasts with my wife but she is a 30+ year stylist and I wanted her take. The basic supplies (hair dye, foil, and such) would be a real boon for them. Easy to make a list and just order. The “fads”, ie shampoos, conditioner and such they get from suppliers would be a little more problematic. Stylists make their living on chemicals not on haircuts and styles. That being said my wife and the rest of the shop are flocking to Amazon. She wanted me to mention that we are rural and 30 minutes away from a crappy beauty supply store and an hour away from a less crappy beauty supply store.
