Google Street View proposal rejected by govt

Not Released

Facebook's users are looking a lot more closely at how much data the company holds on them after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which demonstrated how seemingly trivial Facebook apps could actually harvest huge amounts of personal information. When collecting their data from Facebook, some of them discovered that Facebook had been logging call and SMS data for years, and expressed their frustration online.

In tests, people gave the updated US English WaveNet voices an average score of 4.1 out of 5-more than 20% better than for standard voices, reducing the gap with human speech by over 50%. "Cloud Text-to-Speech also allows you to customize pitch, speaking rate, and volume gain, and supports a variety of audio formats, including MP3 and WAV". Facebook published a post in which it said that contacts, as well as call and text history, are only stored with users' permission. You allowed Facebook to do that on your Android without caring or realizing what it means.

But Google's Android mobile operating system should share the blame as it enabled Facebook to collect the data. But, as The Washington Post explains, it all started much earlier than that for other apps. For instance, Google says the feature could take a phrase like "sales manager Bay Area" and bring back candidates with relevant job skills who are based in Bay Area cities. The log will also contain a reason as to why a Google employee was required to access a GCP account or services.

Google on Wednesday announced an update to Hire, a recruiting app designed for small and medium-sized businesses that use G Suite.

For almost three years, Google had been seeking permissions from the government to launch Street View in India.

Should the court decision be allowed to stand in its present form, Oracle could initiate a series of lawsuits against several other tech firms that feature Java in their products; in fact, the company has already prevailed against SAP, an enterprise software giant that was found to be liable in the amount of $1.3 billion for its use of Java. The simplest explanation is that Google is just like Facebook in many ways. From the Cloud SCC, users can also scan resources to see if they contain sensitive data or vulnerabilities that could potentially put that data at risk.

Finally, users will be able to add audiobooks to a Google Assistant routine, automatically playing the book as part of a morning program, for example.

Protecting data is something that is more important today than ever before, especially with much of today's data being stored in the cloud.
