Privacy complaint targets Google over unsolicited ad emails

By Mathieu Rosemain

PARIS, Aug 24 (Reuters) – Google has breached a European Union court ruling by sending unsolicited advertising emails directly to the inbox of Gmail users, Austrian advocacy group noyb.eu said on Wednesday in a complaint filed with France’s data protection watchdog.

The Alphabet unit, whose revenues mainly come from online advertising, should ask Gmail users for their prior consent before sending them any direct marketing emails, noyb.eu said, citing a 2021 decision by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJUE).

While Google’s ad emails may look like normal ones, they include the word “Ad” in green letters on the left-hand side, below the subject of the email, noyb.eu said in its complaint.Also, entireblogs they do not include a date, the advocacy group added.

Google and French data protection authority CNIL did not immediately respond to requests seeking comment.

Vienna-based noyb.eu (None Of Your Business) is an advocacy group founded by Austrian lawyer and privacy activist Max Schrems who won a high profile case with Europe’s top court in 2020.

The CNIL, known for being one of the most vocal data privacy regulators in Europe, imposed a record fine of 150 million euros ($149 million) on Google earlier this year for making it difficult for internet users to refuse online trackers.($1 = 1.0051 euros) (Reporting by Mathieu Rosemain; Editing by Christian Schmollinger)

'Ballsy' Los Angeles realtor goes full-frontal inside $1.29m home

A ‘ballsy’ area realtor will stop at nothing to sell a $1.29million property – even if it means letting it all hang out on social media.

David Ferrugio is marketing a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 2,100-square-foot home in Monterey Hills – though it’s not the house that will catch your eye at first.

Ferrugio, who announced on his Instagram page that the house on 6340 Monterey Road was being listed, looks quite comfortable in the home – so much so that he posed for photos on the property while going commando.

One image shows Ferrugio picking up the morning newspaper in the driveway while clad in his robe – which happens to be untied.Underneath, he is not wearing any underwear.

Finally, Ferrugio makes sure to highlight the advantages of the property’s backyard by enjoying a nice suntan – though in his case he won’t need to worry about getting any tan lines since he’s buck naked.

All of the images are censored.

The cheeky photo shoot earned Ferrugio praise and laughs on social media, where commenters lauded his clever marketing gimmick.

‘This is hilarious,’ one Instagram user wrote.

‘It’s genius,’ another commented.

‘Bruh u jus changed the realty game forever,’ wrote another admirer.

One Instagram user called Ferrugio a ‘marketing genius.’

‘Killing me!I bet you have over 20 offers now!’ another Instagram user wrote.

Another commenter said the post was ‘iconic.’

The home for sale is located in the Monterey Hills section of Los Angeles

The property includes an open kitchen as well as pristine wood floors

‘Oh, I zoomed in,’ one Instagram user wrote.’Any need for a photographer’s assistant?’

Sam Fuhrer commented: ‘I ain’t looking at the house.’

‘Ok ok I’ll buy!’ wrote another Instagram user.

One commenter said Ferrugio was now their ‘favorite realtor.’

Reaction to Ferrugio’s post was overwhelmingly positive with Instagram users praising him as a ‘marketing genius’

Another Instagram user used some double entendre, writing: ‘Does this mean you come with the house?’ 

According to Ferrugio’s web site, he’s a New York native who grew up in New Jersey and earned his marketing degree in Philadelphia.

During his career as a realtor in Southern California, Ferrugio ‘has spread himself in various different pockets in Los Angeles from the Valley all the way down to El Segundo and in between.’

He brags that he ‘brings authentic prowess to the table for every client’ while boasting of ‘marketing creativity’ with ‘unique scripted story-line videos and digital campaigns that allow himself and his properties to stand out from a saturated market which includes a lot of redundancy.’

In March, Ferrugio posted a slick, sit-com style video on YouTube to market the listing of a three-bedroom, three-bathroom property in Playa Vista.The asking price for the home was $1.45million.

It shows Ferrugio in the shower alongside another realtor and their puppy.

As Ferrugio and his colleague are discussing clever ways to market the property, they eventually decide to just feature the home, since ‘it sells itself.’

Verizon 5G Home Internet vs. T-Mobile Home Internet: Which Is Best for Your Home?

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

5G continues its national rollout, offering at . That’s a big deal for our and other connecting cellular airwaves. It could be a game-changer for home networking, too. With the that rival cable and fiber internet service providers — plus the added appeal of straightforward, consumer-friendly terms that ditch data caps, equipment fees and the like — 5G is shaping up as one of the most exciting things happening to residential internet in years.

That depends on whether is available at your address. 5G signals aren’t available everywhere, and  even when they are. That said, and  are the providers doing the most to expand the technology’s availability for home internet use. (Note: For now, is sticking with fiber and DSL to bring homes online.) Both providers offer dedicated 5G home internet plans that promise fast speeds and simple terms at an affordable rate. In some areas, you might even find that your home is serviceable by each of them, as CNET’s own .

Time will tell how much 5G stands to disrupt the ISP category. Let’s look at how Verizon 5G Home and entireblogs T-Mobile Home Internet match up.

How do Verizon and T-Mobile’s 5G plans and prices compare?

Are you tired of deciphering which broadband package to choose out of seemingly countless options? Wary of signing up for a long-term contract with penalties looming if you don’t fulfill it? Sick of sweating it out every month with a stingy data cap? No worries! Both Verizon and T-Mobile lean into providing a no-strings-attached broadband experience. Each offers simplified 5G home internet plans requiring no term agreement or data caps. 

One small difference you’ll notice is there are two choices for Verizon: Verizon 5G Home and Verizon 5G Plus. Verizon 5G Home comes with a two-year price guarantee and lower download speeds, while Verizon 5G Plus locks in your price for three years, plus higher download speeds and additional perks (see the deals and promos section below). 

So, which one is faster?

While 5G is capable of gigabit download speeds, don’t expect those top-end numbers from either provider’s home internet product. T-Mobile, for example, says on its site that customers can expect “average download speeds in excess of 100Mbps,” and typically experience ranges from 33-182Mbps. Why so relatively low? T-Mobile Home Internet relies on its growing 5G grid and its existing 4G LTE network to expedite its availability. So don’t expect a pure 5G experience.

“During congestion, Home Internet customers may notice speeds lower than other customers due to data prioritization,” reads the first sentence of . “Service may be slowed, suspended, terminated, or restricted for misuse, abnormal use, interference with our network or ability to provide quality service to other users.”

On the other hand, Verizon tells its subscribers to expect average download speeds of around 300Mbps. Verizon’s dependence on its Ultra Wideband 5G network (and lesser use of its “4G LTE backup”) is the main reason for the faster speeds. It uses low-band, midband and millimeter-wave technology to provide customers with speeds that could get as high as 1,000Mbps. 

Where will you find the best value?

While a cursory glance at the chart above might lead you to believe that T-Mobile is the better buy — $50 a month vs. Verizon’s top plan at $70 a month — it’s essential to look at the cost per Mbps to understand the actual value better. Considering the average download speed of 100Mbps for that $50 a month fee, T-Mobile rings in at 50 cents per Mbps, . If you have a qualifying Magenta MAX mobile plan, you could trim that to $30 a month or 30 cents per Mbps.

Verizon, which averages 300Mbps, shaves that amount down to a cost per Mbps of just under 17 cents. Also, if you choose the Verizon 5G Plus plan, your monthly bill is $70 per month and that cost per Mbps goes up to just under 24 cents. But your additional perks might make up for it, depending on how you feel about the worth of a . Finally, customers with qualifying Verizon Unlimited mobile plans will get 50% off the monthly cost of either plan. Suppose you’re able to make use of that additional discount. In that case, it makes Verizon 5G Home — the Plus plan at just shy of 12 cents per Mbps and the regular plan at an even better 8 cents per Mbps — one of the most affordable out there, compared to any  plans by competitors.

What about the fine print?

Let’s revisit that idea of the no-strings-attached internet experience. Verizon and T-Mobile are eager to get customers to try their 5G home internet offerings, so no hidden fees or taxes are added to the monthly cost. We mentioned before that there’s no contract and no data cap. There’s also no additional equipment rental fee, installation, activation cost or other trap fees.

Verizon 5G Home coverage vs. T-Mobile Home coverage map

The dark red circles on the map indicate the areas where Verizon 5G Home Internet is currently available.

Verizon

Neither provider offers a detailed coverage map specifically for its 5G home internet solution. Nor are they yet included in the Federal Communication Commission’s database of broadband providers. But taking into account the total list of cities they claim to cover and the total number of households, T-Mobile is pretty clearly in the lead here. Still, Verizon recently closed the gap when it 

While Verizon 5G Home Internet is  across the country, in just over 600 cities nationwide. In contrast, Verizon’s service is available in parts of 900 cities but fewer homes. 

To save your eyeballs (and our word count), we won’t list the 600-plus T-Mobile cities here, but you can peruse this if you’d like to scan them for yourself. Verizon has not yet made available a list of the 900 cities in which its 5G Home Internet service can be found, but you can use its .

What sort of deals and promos do Verizon and T-Mobile offer?

Still not convinced by the straightforward terms both T-Mobile and Verizon put forward? They’ll try to sway you with their promotional offers… though T-Mobile might have a slight edge here.

First, both T-Mobile and Verizon are so confident in their 5G home products that each offers to pay off any early termination fees for new customers who break their current ISP contract, up to $500. 

T-Mobile offers new Home Internet customers a free one-year Paramount Plus subscription: That’s a decent value of $60 (). It also allows you to subscribe to live TV through Philo TV for $15 a month, which is $10 off the regular price. Finally, all home internet subscribers can take advantage of T-Mobile Tuesdays, the company’s weekly discount and perks program.

Verizon’s current offers are not as aggressive but do offer additional value. New Verizon 5G Home Plus customers will receive an eight-piece SimpliSafe Smart Home Security Bundle and Verizon Cloud Unlimited. Verizon 5G Home Plus subscribers can also get $300 off a Stream TV Soundbar. 

How do Verizon and T-Mobile rank for customer satisfaction?

We refer to two of the top customer satisfaction surveys on our ISP reviews —  and the  — and they place Verizon at the top of their rankings. But those residential internet surveys are focused on , a  service, not specifically the Verizon 5G Home Internet option. So, the verdict is unclear on the company’s 5G fixed wireless internet product.

On the other hand, T-Mobile Home Internet — which has only been on the market for a year — was included for the first time in the . It came out of the gates strong with a 71 out of 100, second only to Verizon Fios and well above the industry average of 64 points. 

Anecdotally,  and preferred it over his previous provider, .

Lastly, PCMag’s most recent  tagged Verizon 5G Home Internet with the highest overall ratings among wireless providers, with an 8.1 score on a scale from 0 to 10. That’s well above the survey’s average ISP score of 6.9. T-Mobile Home Internet was not far behind with a 7.7 score. Both landed in the top 10 of all ISPs for overall customer satisfaction. Not too shabby, I’d say.

Too early to call?

T-Mobile and Verizon are still aggressively building out their 5G networks, so we’re much nearer the beginning of this story than the middle or end, especially as it relates to 5G fixed wireless internet overall. 

Regarding these two providers, T-Mobile Home Internet has a slight edge in availability. Adding its 4G LTE network to 5G makes it a much more viable pick, particularly in rural and underserved areas of the country, where it’s a compelling alternative to options like  or . But Verizon 5G Home Internet takes the lead in performance, featuring nearly triple the current download speeds of T-Mobile Home Internet. With the , which supports , Verizon seems poised to provide a higher upside in the immediate future in cities where the two overlap.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Verizon 5G Home Internet uses ultrawideband 5G technology to deliver max download speeds close to 1 gigabit and average download speeds of 300 megabits per second. That’s the fastest average download speed delivered by a major fixed wireless provider. What it sacrifices is coverage, as it’s currently available to about 30 million households nationwide. That said, the provider aims to continually increase that number to reach 50 million by 2025.

.

 

Rick Broida/CNET

T-Mobile Home Internet is fairly new on the block: CNET and it descended upon the country . Yet, it’s got the widest reach of any fixed wireless internet provider. By utilizing its 4G LTE network and the expanding 5G grid, T-Mobile has been able to aggressively expand its coverage map and offer its service to more households than Verizon’s 5G solution. While the average download speed sits around 100Mbps, that might be plenty of pep for some customers, especially those in rural areas where satellite and DSL might have previously been the best options.

Tencent bows to regulator, allows WeChat users access to rivals' links

SHANGHAI, Sept 17 (Reuters) – Tencent Holdings’s popular WeChat messaging app will start allowing users to access external links from Friday, days after regulators told the company and its rivals to end a long-standing practice of blocking each other’s links.

China’s technology giants have historically prevented links and services by rivals from being shared on their platforms.On Monday, however, regulators said they were ordering firms to rectify this as the practice affected users’ experience and damaged consumer rights.

The move is part of a broader regulatory crackdown on the industry that has wiped billions of dollars off the market value of some of China’s largest companies.

WeChat said on Friday that it will implement the changes in phases, starting with allowing users to access links in private, one-to-one chats once they upgraded to the latest version of WeChat, although it would continue to follow principles such as preventing excessive marketing.

The plan will be carried out based on legal requirements and with the approval of regulatory authorities, it added.

“At the same time, WeChat will also actively cooperate with other Internet platforms to implement this guidance and explore the technical possibilities of using WeChat services on other platforms, to achieve further interconnectivity.”

Under the old practice, WeChat users were not able to click directly through links to e-commerce marketplaces such as Taobao and entireblogs Tmall, which are operated by Alibaba Group.

Instead they would be asked to open the link in a browser like Safari, which many had found problematic.

Tencent has also restricted users from sharing content from ByteDance-owned short video app Douyin on WeChat and QQ, another Tencent messaging app.In February, Douyin filed a complaint with a Beijing court saying it constituted monopolistic behaviour. Tencent has called those accusations baseless. (Reporting by Brenda Goh; editing by Elaine Hardcastle)

A married mother spent 96 hours playing baccarat at Crown Casino in a marathon gambling session before napping in front of poker machines, the Victorian royal commission into the gambling giant has heard

A married mother spent 96 hours playing baccarat at Crown Casino in a marathon gambling session before napping in front of poker machines, the Victorian royal commission into the gambling giant has heard.

The former doctor, whose identity has been suppressed, played the popular card game across four straight days at the Southbank casino in .

When the woman wanted a ‘break’ from the tables, she had a series of micro sleeps when sitting in front of the pokies, the Crown inquiry revealed.

The development comes as the inquiry also heard Crown, which is backed by billionaire James Packer, hired just 12 responsible service of gambling staff to monitor 바카라사이트추천 tens of thousands of patrons at the venue, which is open 24 hours a day.

Crown Melbourne VIP Mahogany Room Executive Peter Lawrence has previously admitted to targeting vulnerable problem gamblers, according to the

The problem gambler’s social worker said no Crown employees ever stopped to check on her welfare, 바카라사이트 which is required by law.

The social worker also witnessed Crown staff not checking in on other patrons who were sleeping in chairs, and in some cases crying, when playing poker machines.

The inquiry also uncovered Crown’s loyalty program perks, which have led some problem gamblers to suicide, prison and bankruptcy.

Grandmother Carolyn Crawford was one such case.

She served 18 months behind bars after stealing money from her employer to fuel her pokies addiction, 바카라사이트추천 putting $407,000 through the machines over seven years.

‘All my money went down the pokies.And Crown got a large percentage of that,’ she said.

Despite spending $1.9million on its responsible gambling scheme in recent years, Crown has repeatedly failed to stop self-excluded problem gamblers from playing pokies.

Crown also allows loan sharks to target players who have lost money, but want to keep gambling, according to the social worker. 

According to the  addiction treatment centre, more than 300,000 Australians are currently addicted to some form of gambling.

Australians are also known for their love of a punt, gambling more than any other nation in the world.

Facebook’s new card-playing bot shows AI can work with others

id=”article-body” class=”row ” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

 has already built artificial intelligence-powered bots that can crush pros in popular games such as and the board game . On Friday, the company’s AI researchers said they’ve conquered another challenge: 메리트카지노 creating a bot that can achieve high scores in a card game called Hanabi that involves teamwork.

Hanabi, the Japanese word for fireworks, is for 카지노사이트 two to five players with limited rounds of play that requires the participants to collaborate. Each person can see the other players’ cards but not his or her own. During a turn, a player can make several moves, including hinting to other players what they hold. Players arrange a set of cards in a specific order and add up the cards with the highest number in each set to receive a score. 

In a game against a bot, Facebook’s bot modified its strategy throughout game. The bot “searched” for a list of possible hands it might be holding, a list that changed as the other bot revealed information. Since the goal of the game is to work together to achieve the highest possible score, 샌즈카지노 players use logic to infer why certain cards are played. During its turn, Facebook’s bot determined the best move to make after simulating hypothetical games. Hanabi has up to 10 million possible hands, Facebook said. 

The card-playing bot illustrates how AI can work with other bots or people to reach a goal, similar to the way humans do in their daily lives. Facebook’s AI researchers said the findings could be applied to a range of applications, including improving self-driving cars and virtual assistants. 

“The reason we’re interested in Hanabi is not primarily about games,” said Adam Lerer, a research engineer at Facebook AI Research. “It’s about figuring out how to build these capabilities into AI systems like or conversational agents that need to actually understand the mental state of other people that they’re interacting with through their actions.”

A self-driving car, for example, would need to predict how other vehicles intend to move throughout the road as it navigates traffic. Facebook’s AI research team is focused on advancing AI overall — not on a specific product.

At one point, Facebook’s bot playing two-player Hanabi had an average score of 24.61, out of a highest possible score of 25. Advanced Hanabi players estimate that humans achieve a perfect score 60% to 70% of the time, the company said. Facebook’s bot got a perfect score 75% of the time, the company said.

Outside of Facebook’s latest AI milestone, the company acknowledges there’s more it wants to achieve to advance AI. 

Noam Brown, a research scientist at Facebook AI, said the team wants to focus on helping AI understand what humans are trying to say and express through language. Researchers also want AI to be able able to express its intentions to a human in a similar way. 

Real life situations are often more complex than working with someone else or trying to defeat an opponent, Brown said. Negotiations, which aren’t purely adversarial or cooperative, are an example of such situations, he said.  

“It’s somewhere in between,” Brown said. “We want to have AI that can cope with those kinds of settings as well.”

10 College Wardrobe Essentials to Put on Your Packing List

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

Freshman year of college is hard. Starting over, making new friends or for some, moving away from home, are all challenges college students face. But forget about all of that. My biggest question freshman year of college was knowing what on Earth I needed to bring to wear!

If you’re like me, you most likely suffer from overpacking syndrome, in which every single piece of clothing you own must come with you. I mean, what if you need to wear that one jacket you haven’t worn since middle school?

But speaking from experience, I’m a recent college grad, so I can confidently say that your whole entire wardrobe does not need to make the trip to your tiny dorm. Besides, once you get past the first few weeks of school, you mainly just begin to wear practically the same outfit everyday anyway (especially if your laundry room is in another building). 

To help take the stress off of all that goes into packing for college, I’ve compiled a list of essential items needed for your wardrobe. 

Nike

This one may be a given, but a pair of simple  or can go a long way. I prefer Converse or Nike because of their universality and simplicity. I also recommend packing a pair of shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Going to frat parties, bars and tailgates can get messy, and there’s nothing worse than having a brand-new pair of shoes get destroyed within an hour. 

Abercrombie

If you’re going to school in the blistering heat or where frat parties don’t reign supreme, then this won’t be a necessity for your list. However, plenty of Northern school attendees will definitely appreciate bringing a “fracket,” aka a frat jacket. A frat jacket is any type of cheap winter coat that you wear in between the Uber and the frat house. It’s a jacket that you like, but if you lost it it wouldn’t be the end of the world. 

I recommend going to your local thrift store, using your mom’s Kohl’s cash or buying from any clearance section when getting your fracket. In fact, Abercrombie has the on sale for $34, which would make the perfect fracket.

Kohls

College may be fun and games most of the time, but you don’t want to be caught off-guard when it’s time to get down to business. Owning a pair of dress pants and a nice blouse to match comes in handy when presenting or going to networking events and meetings. There’s no need to spend a fortune at Nordstrom on brand-name clothing;  from Kohl’s or Target will do just fine.

Urban Outfitters

This is a must. Feeling comfortable and confident in the clothes that you wear when hitting the town makes every night 10 times better. There are so many types of going-out tops, but I recently have been loving the corset look. My favorite corset top is the  at Urban Outfitters.

As a side note, many frats tend to have themed parties so having a neon shirt or a checkered print shirt may be helpful. 

Old Navy

Athleisure wear really took off once the pandemic kicked into full swing, and the trend doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. No longer do students need to feel the pressure to throw on skinny jeans and an uncomfortable top just to look cute going to class. All you need is leggings or biker shorts with any sort of top or sports bra, and you’re good to go! 

Athleisure wear sets can cost anywhere from $25 at Amazon to $300 at Lululemon. I recommend going to Old Navy if you’re looking for quality athletic clothes at a reasonable price. 

Zara

Although I love a statement piece, having a couple of basic tank tops that can easily be layered with jackets and other accessories are convenient for putting together any outfit. Basic tank tops are budget-friendly and will save you space in limited dorm room storage. I recommend the .

Dr. Martens

OK, this may just be a style choice, but a black boot can make any outfit go from casual to nighttime ready. My friends and I all own different variations of black boots. I prefer a when going to a more casual event, but when going out, I like a black boot with a little heel.

LF

Although I didn’t go to a big SEC or Big 10 school, all of my friends who did spent the whole year planning their outfits for football season. If you’re going to school where sports are all the rage, I recommend checking out for cute, albeit expensive, shirts and sweatshirts. 

If that’s too expensive, there are hundreds of Etsy stores that customize tailgating clothes at a more reasonable price; I recommend. As a side note, to spice your outfit up I recommend a college tee with a .

Forever 21

A pair of comfortable joggers will come in handy when running to the grocery store, going to class or casually hanging out with your friends. Joggers are comfortable and make outfits look a little more put together than sweatpants do. I’ve owned the same pair of all through college and definitely recommend them.

Abercrombie

Owning one dress that can be worn to fancy dinners, dances or nice parties will save you the time and 카지노사이트 money of having to go shopping at the mall or buying a dress last-minute online. Throughout college you will inevitably be faced with the challenge of having to dress up for some event, and it’s best to have a dress you already love in your closet. I suggest having both a and a on hand.

2022 FireKeepers Casino 400: Preview & Predictions

For those drivers who haven’t yet qualified for the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, time is growing short.

There are four races left in the regular season, and 14 different drivers presumably are going to race in the postseason on the basis of victories in the first 22 events.

Realistically, that leaves two Playoff berths still available, and those spots currently are held by Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr.on points, as the series heads to Michigan International Speedway for Sunday’s Firekeepers Casino 400.

But that could change if the next four events produce one, two or even three unique winners. Blaney and Truex are two of the marquee drivers who haven’t been to Victory Lane this year.

That group also includes Kevin Harvick, 홈카지노주소 Brad Keselowski, Michael McDowell, Aric Almirola and Bubba Wallace, 홈카지노주소 all of whom are below the Playoff cut line.With the lone exception of Harvick, all drivers in that group won races last year but have failed to scratch in 2022.

NASCAR’s Next Gen car will race at Michigan for the first time.
