Apple Allowing users download all iCloud and Apple ID data

Apple is switching up its privacy policies to satisfy the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, which takes effect May 25, Apple on Thursday announced they shall soon rollout an update to their website which will allow Apple users to download a copy of all of their personal data stored by the company.
                                                         
 Apple letting users download all iCloud and Apple ID data
Bloomberg reports that customers will be able to download a copy of the data stored across Apple’s apps and services, including their Contacts stored in iCloud, Calendar information, Photos, Music preferences, and more.

The report also notes how the company will allow users to delete their accounts without directly contacting Apple, and will give them the power to update/correct personal information and disable their Apple ID account on-demand.

"The iPhone maker said it will update its web page for managing Apple IDs in coming months to let users download a copy of all their data stored with the company. The site will also let customers correct personal information, temporarily deactivate their account, and completely delete it."
The data trove will be accessible through the company's Apple ID Web portal. People will also be able to correct personal information, temporarily deactivate an account, or delete one entirely.

The options will come to Europe in early May before spreading to other regions. People were previously able to accomplish the same tasks, but typically only by contacting Apple and requesting it.

Today's iOS and tvOS updates also include notes better detailing Apple's privacy policies, and how data is used in individual apps. New iconography highlights when an Apple app wants to share personal data.

In recent years the E.U. has often adopted a tough stance on privacy, for instance enacting a "right to be forgotten" from Google searches.

At this month's China Development Forum, Apple CEO Tim Cook called for stringent privacy safeguards —even though the Chinese government regularly snoops on residents and now has full access to local iCloud accounts if it wants it.

Resonance Audio was launched last year and is aimed at making it easier for developers to deliver more convincing surround sound experiences in their VR and AR apps. The kit is based on Google's multi-platform VR Audio SDK, but really tries to improve on its foundation and make cross-platform development a lot easier with platform-specific documentation on how to implement all features properly.

Now that Resonance Audio has been open sourced, developers can freely integrate it into their projects to make cross-platform developing of AR/VR experiences a lotsimpler.
> "To accelerate adoption of immersive audio technology and strengthen the developer community around it, we’re opening Resonance Audio to a community-driven development model.

Chrome begins Blocking annoying ads based on the Better Ads Standards

While most advertisements on the web is aware of client encounter, throughout the years, chrome has progressively gotten notification from clients that some promotions can be especially meddling. As was reported last June, Chrome will handle this issue by expelling advertisements from destinations that don't take after the Better Ads Standards. We've already talked about a portion of the points of interest encompassing how Chrome shields clients from nosy advertisements, however as we approach the dispatch date of February 15, we needed to go in the engine and examine how this component functions in more detail.     
  better ads standards

What are the Better Ads Standards? 

The Better Ads Standards are the consequence of open customer inquiry by the Coalition for Better Ads, an industry assembled and concentrated on enhancing clients' involvement with web based promoting. More than 40,000 web clients in North America and Europe took part in reviews where they were indicated regular advertisement encounters and requested to assess how meddlesome the encounters were. The most meddlesome advertisement encounters incorporate prestitial promotions (those full-page promotions that piece you from seeing the substance on the page) and glimmering energized promotions. More insights about the exploration and strategy can be found on the Coalition's site. 
                                   
better ads standards mobile and pc

Despite the fact that a couple of the promotion encounters that disregard the Better Ads Standards are issues in the commercial itself, the larger part of risky advertisement encounters are controlled by the site proprietor —, for example, high promotion thickness or prestitial advertisements with commencement. This outcome prompted the approach Chrome takes to shield clients from a considerable lot of the meddling advertisement encounters recognized by the Better Ads Standards: assess how well locales agree to the Better Ads Standards, educate destinations of any issues experienced, give the chance to destinations to address distinguished issues, and expel promotions from locales that keep on maintaining a hazardous advertisements encounter. 

Today, the Better Ads Standards comprises of 12 promotion encounters that exploration observed to be especially irritating to clients. Picture Source: Coalition for Better Ads 

Assessing locales for infringement 

Locales are assessed by looking at an example of pages from the site. Contingent upon what number of infringement of the Better Ads Standards are discovered, the site will be assessed as having a status of Passing, Warning, or Failing. The assessment status of destinations can be gotten to through the Ad Experience Report API. Site proprietors can likewise observe more nitty gritty outcomes, for example, the particular infringement of the Better Ads Standards that were found, by means of the Ad Experience Report in Google's Search Console. From the Report site proprietors can likewise ask for that their site be re-checked on after they have tended to the rebellious advertisement encounters. 

The Ad Experience Report in Google's Search Console permits site proprietors to see their general site assessment status, and also the specifics of any infringement distinguished on their site. 

Separating on destinations at the system level 

At a specialized level, when a Chrome client explores to a page, Chrome's promotion channel first checks if that page has a place with a site that falls flat the Better Ads Standards. Assuming this is the case, organize asks for on the page —, for example, those for JavaScript or pictures — are checked against a rundown of known advertisement related URL designs. On the off chance that there is a match, Chrome will hinder the demand, keeping the promotion from showing on the page. This arrangement of examples depends on people in general EasyList channel leads, and incorporates designs coordinating numerous promotion suppliers including Google's own advertisement stages, AdSense and DoubleClick. 

What this looks like in Chrome 

                                           
how chrome blocks ads
Chrome will consequently piece promotions on destinations that fall flat the Better Ads Standards, utilizing the approach portrayed previously. At the point when no less than one Ad asked for has been blocked, Chrome will demonstrate the client a message showing that advertisement blocking has happened and in addition a choice to debilitate this setting by choosing "permit promotions on this site." For work area clients, the notice in Chrome's address bar will seem to be like Chrome's current fly up blocker. Android clients will see message in a little infobar at the base of their screen, and can tap on "points of interest" to see more data and abrogate the default setting. 

Chrome will naturally square meddling promotions on locales that have been found to damage the Better Ads Standards, yet clients have the choice to cripple the component by choosing "permit advertisements on this site." 

Early outcomes demonstrate positive advance for clients 

                                     
While the aftereffect of this activity is that Chrome clients won't see advertisements on locales that reliably abuse the Better Ads Standards, our objective isn't to channel any promotions whatsoever yet to enhance the experience for all web clients. As of February 12, 42% of locales which were coming up short the Better Ads Standards have settled their issues and are currently passing. This is the result we were seeking after — that destinations would find a way to settle nosy promotions encounters themselves and advantage all web clients. Be that as it may, if a site keeps on keeping up resistant promotion encounters 30 days in the wake of being informed of infringement, Chrome will start to piece advertisements on that site. 

We're supported by early outcomes indicating industry moves from meddling advertisement encounters, and look sending to proceeded with joint effort with the business toward a future where Chrome's promotion sifting innovation won't be required.

Hangouts Chat, Google’s Slack Alternative, is now available in G Suite

When it launched in 2013, Google Hangouts was Google’s multipurpose messaging platform as it had replaced Google Talk. Only three years later, however, Google opted to sideline Hangouts for consumers in favor of Allo and Duo. Instead, Google targeted Hangouts for businesses. Then, in March 2017, Google announced Hangouts Chat along with Hangouts Meet. Despite its name, Hangouts Chat is more similar to Slack instead of Hangouts.
                         Hangouts Chat, Google’s Slack Alternative, is now available in G Suite
For nearly a year, Hangouts Chat has only been available to companies as part of an Early Adopter Program. This changes now as Google has announced that it’s making Chat generally available as a core G Suite service.

Hangouts Chat is a competitor to Slack, which is one of the most popular solutions for work group messaging and collaboration. Other competitors include Microsoft Teams, and a preliminary look at its functionality seems to show that Chat has a good enough feature set to compete with Slack.

According to Google, Hangouts Chat helps teams “collaborate easily and efficiently.” It has dedicated virtual rooms to house projects over time, including threaded conversations, which is said to make it simple to track progress and follow up tasks.
Chat is integrated with other G Suite apps. Users can upload items from Drive, collaborate on Google’s productivity suite, join online meetings with Hangouts Meet, or use Google’s search tool to search for room members, past conversations, and shared files. They can also use Google’s AI to speed up manual work, such as booking conference rooms and searching for files.

Chat is said to be secure. Google says that it builds on G Suite’s “security-first ecosystem” and offers an “enterprise-grade solution” that’s reliable as well as compliant. It has integrated support for Vault, which means that administrators can archive, preserve, search and export Chat-specific data.

One of the more compelling features of Chat is that it comes with 25 bots to help speed up workflows, according to Google. These workflows range from finance and HR to CRM, project management and more. Bots like the @GoogleDrive bot and the @Meet bot are integrated directly with other G Suite apps. The @GoogleDrive bot lets users know when files are shared with them, comments are made, or when people request access to their documents. The @Meet bot, on the other hand, has direct integration with Calendar to schedule meetings for users. Google adds that users can also build integrations on top of Chat to incorporate the tools they use.
