Nokia is in trouble for sending data to China.

Things were a lot simpler when
Nokia just made Windows Phones

That's quite a wrong turn.

ALL CHINESE SMARTPHONE brands get in occasional hot water for sending data to mysterious servers in mainland China, but they do at least have a certain amount of plausible deniability against anything more untoward. For HMD Global and its Nokia-branded phones, it's a bit harder to explain away, as data seems to be on a 3,700-mile detour from Finland to China.

The report comes from Norway's public broadcaster NRK, which was tipped off to the covert data broadcast by Henrik Austad: a man who found his Nokia 7 was sending unencrypted data to "vnet.nc", which seems to be managed by state-owned China Telecom.

Is that bad? Well, yes, and especially for HMD Global. While the information gathered - things like user location, SIM card number and device serial number - couldn't be used to identify a user, it's still a big GDPR no no. Earlier this year Google got a €50m Euro fine for iffy data usage in France, and it looks like HMD Global could be in for a similar painful slap on the wrist, now the country's data protection ombudsman is investigating.

Advertising Why Facebook didn’t block live New Zealand shooting video.

as he live-streamed the killing of 50 people at two
mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. (Image: AP)

Facebook said it removed the video "within minutes" of being notified by New Zealand police. But since then, Facebook and other social media companies have had to contend with copies posted by others.

Why did Facebook air live video of the New Zealand mosque shooting for 17 minutes? Didn’t anyone alert the company while it was happening?

Facebook says no. According to its deputy general counsel, Chris Sonderby, none of the 200 or so people who watched the live video flagged it to moderators. In a Tuesday blog post , Sonderby said the first user report didn’t come until 12 minutes after the broadcast ended.

All of which raises additional questions — among them, why so many people watched without saying anything, whether Facebook relies too much on outsiders and machines to report trouble, and whether users and law enforcement officials even know how to reach Facebook with concerns about what they’re seeing on the service.

Hyundai invests $300 mn to help India's Ola battle Uber.



The cash from Hyundai subsidiary Kia Motors will be
used by India's Ola to expand its fleet of electric vehicles
Indian taxi-hailing company Ola has secured a $300-million investment from South Korean car giant Hyundai, the firms said Tuesday, providing a major boost in its fight against US giant Uber.

Ola was launched in 2011 and is engaged in an aggressive battle with Uber in India's ride-hailing market, which is estimated to be worth around $10 billion and growing fast.

The new money, from Hyundai's subsidiary Kia Motors, will largely be used to help Ola increase its electric vehicle fleet, the companies said in a joint statement.

"Our partnership with Ola will certainly accelerate our efforts to transform into a smart mobility solutions provider," Hyundai executive vice chairman Chung Eui-sun said in the statement.

Bangalore-based Ola announced last year that it planned to put a million electric vehicles on India roads by 2021.
