"Holmes raised $700 million on the condition that she would not divulge to investors how her technology actually worked. Silicon Valley can replicate one big confidence game in which entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and the tech media pretend to vet one another while, in reality, functioning as cogs in a machine that is designed to not question anything -- and buoy one another all along the way... In the end, it isn't in anyone's interest to call bullshit."
In a searing investigation into the once lauded biotech start-up Theranos, Nick Bilton discovers that its precocious founder defied medical experts—even her own chief scientist—about the veracity of its now discredited blood-testing technology.

Few things motivate Samsung employees like the opportunity to take advantage of weakness at Apple Inc.

This wins the stupid of the day. US Department of Justice says they are in violation of the American with Disabilities Act.

Looks like some online course content from Stanford, Berkeley and NYU at least have gone offline.
UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Education Cathy Koshland issued a statement today in response to federal findings on the accessibility of online course content and lectures.

Another challenge to privacy.
Hackers can train artificial neural networks to recognize objects, read text, and even identify faces in obfuscated images.

One might even wonder if Detroit finances corrupt officials...
The lawsuit takes aim at the traditional sales model for automakers and car dealers.

The FinnWatch report, “Cheap has a high price: Responsibility problems relating to international private label products and food production in Thailand,” examines the production of food sourced from #Thailand and sold in #Finland.

The report alleged that Natural Fruit Company Limited had committed serious labor rights abuses, including poor working conditions, confiscation of workers’ official documents, use of child labor, unlawfully low wages, and excessive overtime.

The company, whose workforce at that factory consists mostly of migrant workers from Burma, asserted that Hall defamed and damaged the company by “broadcasting false statements to public media.” Government prosecutors joined the case, in which Hall was also accused under the Computer Crimes Act.
 
Andy Hall and the Migrant Workers Rights Network (#MWRN) have done tremendous work for Burmese migrant workers in Thailand and #HRW is proud to stand with him against these unjust charges and legal trials.

“Andy Hall coordinated important research about abuses of workers’ rights in Thailand and he should never have been prosecuted for his actions,” said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “Whatever the verdict, the long and intensive court fight has had a distinctly chilling effect on other activists pressing for the protection of workers’ rights in Thai companies, many of which export their products to foreign consumers.”

“Migrant workers in #Thailand face huge challenges in asserting their rights in Thailand,” said Adams. “Prosecuting Andy Hall for his association with independent efforts to document rights abuses raises serious questions about Thailand’s readiness to protect workers’ rights.”

#Myanmar #Burma #migrants #Bangkok
(New York) – A Bangkok criminal court is expected to hand down a verdict on September 20, 2016, in the case of a British researcher for his work on labor rights abuses in Thailand, Human Rights Watch said today. Andy Hall faces up to seven years in prison if convicted of criminal sedition and violating the Computer Crimes Act.

Remember the days when Microsoft was mercilessly mocked when they brought out a new iteration of their technology (or is that still happening?)

Apple has become that company.

Apple should stop bragging about its bravery and start paying its fair share.
