Digital rights group warns that Google’s stance on neo-Nazis is ‘dangerous’

The Electronic Frontier Foundation warns the decision by Google, GoDaddy and Cloudflare to expel white supremacist site the Daily Stormer from their services has worrying free speech implications.

In a statement released Thursday, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) warned the tech companies’ move could set a precedent. “We strongly believe that what GoDaddy, Google, and Cloudflare did here was dangerous,” it said. “That’s because, even when the facts are the most vile, we must remain vigilant when platforms exercise these rights. Because Internet intermediaries, especially those with few competitors, control so much online speech, the consequences of their decisions have far-reaching impacts on speech around the world.”

Korner is a $99 smart security system that’s perfect for apartments

Best Home Security System 2017

Are you paying $40, $50, or even $60+ per month for a traditional home security system? It’s obviously important to ensure that your family is safe and secure, but $480-$720 per year is a whole lot of money to spend on a system that some experts believe to be unnecessary. That’s right, many people are of the opinion that home monitoring solutions are a waste of money. Why? Because if an intruder enters your home and hears an alarm sound, he or she is likely to flee right then and there. That means by the time you get a call from the monitoring center, the incident is already over.

Another option for people looking for a less expensive solution that’s still effective is the Korner Home Security System & App. This smart solution involves a single dongle that plugs into your router and then a series of "korners" that you stick on your doors and windows. When armed, the dongle will sound a loud 85 dB alarm and send your phone a notification anytime a door or window with a sensor is opened. The system ships with the alarm dongle and three sensors for $100, and it includes a year of free service. After that, the service costs $39 per year. That’s right, a year of service costs less than what most traditional alarm companies charge for a single month.

Here are some more key details from the product page:

  • Easy setup in minutes. Just plug in Stick and stick Tags to doors & windows (no 2nd piece to align). Portable home security, no wires or drilling
  • Arm/disarm remotely with FREE app and get alerts. Automate arm and disarm. Arm zones. Send any questions to [email protected]
  • Forward alerts to friends, family and neighbors, or call the police, all with the press of a button in the App. Track kids and toddlers around home
  • 1 wireless Stick, 3 door and window sensor alarm Tags and 1 year free service ($39/year after first year)
  • Intrusion will cause Stick to sound a loud siren alarm in the home and a notification to the App and email

Korner Home Security & App, 3 Door and Window Wireless Sensors, indoor Alarm Siren: $99.98

You can also buy additional Korner sensors for $25 each.

Instant Apps, Android’s best new feature in years, isn’t just for new phones

Android Instant Apps

One of the best new Android features Google imagined was launched last year, on paper. The company unveiled Instant Apps at Google I/O 2016, a bold dream of running specific apps on phones and tablets without the user having to actually install them. But Google certainly took its time to deploy Instant Apps, and many people soon forgot it even exists. That’s probably why Google wants to remind Android fans and developers that no less than 500 million devices support Instant Apps.

Samsung will offer big freebies to sell the Note 8 before the iPhone 8 launch

Galaxy Note 8 release date USA

Samsung's in a precarious position. It needs the Galaxy Note 8 to be a success, given the way the Note 7 debacle went. But it's launching just weeks before Apple is slated to unveil the iPhone 8, a supposedly massive upgrade that people have been waiting years for.

Even if Samsung comes out with a great phone, competing with the Apple fanboy equivalent of Steve Jobs' second child is going to be tough. So Samsung is apaprently going to go all-in to persuade people to pull the trigger on the Note 8 before they even get a chance to set eyes on the iPhone 8.

iTunes Movie Rentals

Movie studios, always keen on diversifying their revenue streams, are contemplating a move that would allow companies like Comcast and Apple to stream new movies just a few weeks after they originally hit theaters. According to a report from Bloomberg, Warner Bros. and Universal are eagerly hoping to ink a deal, even though a number of theater chains are understandably opposed to such a deal.
