Donald Trump's surprise election victory has alarmed technology companies and civil libertarians fearful that a self-described 'law and order' president will attempt to expand surveillance programs and rejoin a long-running battle over government access to encrypted information. Trump's campaign featured numerous broadsides against the tech sector, including calls for closing off parts of the internet to limit militant Islamist propaganda and urging a boycott of Apple Inc products over the company's refusal to help the FBI unlock an iPhone associated with last year’s San Bernardino, California shootings. Trump has also threatened antitrust action against Amazon.com Inc and demanded that tech companies such as Apple build their products in the United States. The battle over encryption, which dates to the 1990s, could heat up quickly with Trump's win and the reelection of Republican Senator Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee.

Twitter Inc said on Wednesday that Chief Operating Officer Adam Bain, widely credited with building a robust advertising business at the company even as it struggled with user growth, is leaving to explore other opportunities. "Mr. Bain will remain at Twitter in the coming weeks to assist with the transition of the chief operating officer role," the company said. The move is a blow for struggling Twitter, which has hired bankers to field acquisition offers but has seen a dearth of potential bidders. The company said last month it would cut 9 percent of its global workforce to keep costs down. Twitter shares were down 4.3 percent in after-hours trading. Bain will be replaced by Chief Financial Officer Anthony Noto, the company said, adding it would begin a search for a new CFO. More»

Orange Egypt is expecting to receive frequencies for fourth-generation networks from the country’s telecoms regulator NTRA by next February, chief executive Jean-Marc Harion said Monday. Internet speed will be 10 times higher than before once operating the new 4G mobile services, Harion asserted during a press conference in Cairo. Harion further said that his company has investments worth 32 billion Egyptian pounds ($1.8 billion) in the North African country. After obtaining the licence to start providing 4G services, Orange Egypt is expected to achieve higher growth rates and take data transmission services to the next level. Orange outlets in Egypt will start providing new SIM cards that supports 4G technology to customers totally for free. Orange Egypt was previously studying three scenarios targeting liquidity increase; the first is to attract local investors into partnerships, the second is to offer more shares for free floating while the third is to adopt both of those scenarios. However, Orange Egypt CEO says it is not the proper time to realise any of these scenarios. Harrion also hinted that operating costs may get affected due to volatile dollar exchange rates, however, Orange Egypt will do its best to overcome this crisis and keep a stable profit rates. Orange Egypt announced earlier that it had approved a 500 million euro ($553 million) loan from its parent company to cover the cost of a licence that will let it operate fourth-generation mobile phone services. Orange Egypt CEO said with the foreign currency component secured, 100% of the total funding requirement is met, as the company has already paid the portion due in Egyptian currency. More»

Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal will begin selling ads for Apple Inc’s News app next year in an exclusive deal, the companies announced on Monday. Apple will outsource the selling to NBCUniversal, which already has relationships with many major U.S. advertisers. The deal is reminiscent of one that Snapchat struck with Viacom earlier this year, under which Viacom sells advertising on Snapchat's behalf. Unlike Apple, however, Snapchat has been filling its sales roster as it prepares for next year’s initial public offering. Apple does not have its own sales team after it shut down its iAd app ad network in June, which was used to fill unsold inventory for Apple News. Apple launched its News app last year and currently has over 70 million active monthly users. More»

Windstream Holdings Inc said on Monday it would buy fellow U.S. telecommunications company EarthLink Holdings Corp in a deal valued at about $1.1 billion, including debt, in a bid to cut costs and better compete with rivals. The merger, if completed, would come after larger peer CenturyLink Inc agreed to buy Level 3 Communications Inc in a deal announced a week ago that was valued at about $24 billion. The competitive enterprise communications space has been consolidating rapidly this year. Both Little Rock, Arkansas-based Windstream, which provides telephone and Internet services to consumers in rural markets, and Atlanta-based EarthLink, which was an Internet pioneer in dial-up service in the 1990s, have seen revenue fall for the past three years. The deal is expected to generate over $125 million in cost savings within three years. More»

The numbers of people viewing online child sex abuse images in the UK amounts to a "social emergency", says the NSPCC. A report by the charity suggests the number of individuals looking at such images could exceed half a million. It is calling for a "robust action plan" to cut off the supply of content. The Home Office says it is working with law enforcers, companies and voluntary organisations to stamp out online child exploitation. In the past five years the number of offences recorded by police of viewing child sexual abuse images under the Obscene Publications Act has more than doubled across the UK, reaching a total of 8,745 in 2015. But the NSPCC believes the true scale of offending in the UK to be far greater. More»

A new application that promises to be the "Photoshop of speech" is raising ethical and security concerns. Adobe unveiled Project Voco last week. The software makes it possible to take an audio recording and rapidly alter it to include words and phrases the original speaker never uttered, in what sounds like their voice. One expert warned that the tech could further undermine trust in journalism. Another said it could pose a security threat. However, the US software firm says it is taking action to address such risks. More»

The concern that the 2016 US presidential election may be hacked, by Russia or some other bad actor, could hold the same place in history as the Millennium Bug: a whole load of worry over nothing. "Unless the election is extraordinarily close, it is unlikely that an attack will result in the wrong candidate getting elected," suggest Matt Bernhard and Professor J Alex Halderman, security experts from the University of Michigan. But they say the risk the election process could be disrupted by hackers should be taken extremely seriously. In the run up to the big day, the US Department of Homeland Security has been carrying out "cyber hygiene" tests on voting systems across the country. Officials are confident in the technology, but there are weaknesses that have security professionals standing-by on election day ready to step-in if irregularities are spotted. The task facing any hacker isn’t insignificant. In the US, voting is done via electronic booths, the vast majority of which are not connected to the internet. More»

South Korean prosecutors raided the offices of Samsung Electronics Co. early Tuesday morning amid allegations that the South Korean technology company gave money to a close friend of President Park Geun-hye who has been accused of exerting influence over government affairs. A spokesman for Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that it seized documents from Samsung’s office of external relations in Seoul’s Gangnam neighborhood. A spokeswoman for Samsung didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The prosecutors’ raid on Samsung suggests that the growing political scandal could now be turning toward the country’s sprawling conglomerates, who have long been some of South Korea’s most influential power brokers.

Facebook Inc said on Monday, it was testing a feature that would let page administrators create job postings and receive applications from candidates, a move that could pressure LinkedIn Corp's recruiting business. "Based on behavior we've seen on Facebook, where many small businesses post about their job openings on their Page, we're running a test for Page admins to create job postings and receive applications from candidates," a company spokesman told Reuters. LinkedIn makes most of its revenue from job hunters and recruiters who pay a monthly fee to post resumes and connect with people on what's often known as the social network for business. Technology news website TechCrunch first reported the news on Monday. With Facebook's jobs features, companies could drive more traffic to their Facebook pages while allowing them to pay the social network to get their job openings in front of more candidates, TechCrunch said.
