The Egyptian Cabinet’s Information and Decision Support Centre (IDSC) denied rumors saying that Egypt halted exports of electricity smart metres after floating the Egyptian pound. The IDSC has contacted the Ministry of Electricity which in turn said that this news was baseless asserting that four local companies already approached the ministry to apply for bids to supply a million smart pre-paid electricity metres. The ministry said that it will study all the offers to pick the best candidate in terms of high quality and reasonable prices provided that it will start the delivery process four months after signing contracts.

Executives of Vodafone, Orange, and Etisalat are calling the Egyptian government to provide equal and fair support to all mobile operators without being biased to Telecom Egypt, which recently acquired 4G licence. The three mobile operators were tackling their concerns with Egyptian Minister of Communications Yasser El-Kady during a session at Cairo ICT 2016 on Monday. Meanwhile, El-Kady asserted that a new regulatory framework, which is set by telecoms regulator the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), would ensure justice and equality in providing the needed support for all parties. As a result, many disputes were settled down between Vodafone Egypt and the state-run landline monopoly, Telecom for instance, the minister added. More»

San Francisco’s transport agency has been hit by a hack attack that led to customers being able to travel for nothing. The hackers have made a ransom demand of 100 Bitcoin, which amounts to about $70,000 (£56,000 ; €66,000). As a precaution, staff shut off all ticketing machines on the network. Computers across the city’s transport network, including at stations, were disabled with screens displaying a message from the attackers. The message read: "You Hacked, ALL Data Encrypted. Contact For Key( ,Enter”. Yandex is a Russian internet company that, among other things, provides email and social networking tools. More»

Online marketplace Amazon has placed a limit on the number of reviews shoppers can leave on the site. In a bid to put a stop to false feedback, people can now write only five reviews a week of items not bought via the online store. The change applies to most products and is part of efforts to clamp down on people selling positive comments. The change is Amazon's latest step in its battle to ensure users trust its listings. Earlier this year, Amazon began suing sellers for buying fake reviews and then imposed tougher restrictions on companies that offered free products in return for customers' ratings. More»

Software company Zenefits has been fined $7 million by California's insurance regulator, marking the biggest penalty yet for the startup that has faced multiple investigations for flouting insurance laws. California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said in a statement posted on the state insurance department's website that Zenefits was charged with allowing unlicensed employees to sell insurance and circumventing education requirements for insurance agents. Regulators called the fine "one of the largest penalties for licensing violations ever assessed in the department's history." San Francisco-based Zenefits makes human-resources software, helping HR professionals manage health benefits, maternity leave, payroll and other employee services. More»

General Motors Co's semi-autonomous "Super Cruise" system will allow drivers to take their hands off the steering wheel for extended periods, but will stop the vehicle automatically if drivers are not attentive, according to a government letter made public on Monday. The largest U.S. automaker in September 2014 unveiled planned technology to allow drivers on highways to let the vehicle take over driving itself. But if the road has too many twists and turns or the vehicle detects the driver is not paying attention, it issues a series of alerts. If the human driver does not take over, the vehicle will automatically slow down and then put on the hazard lights. GM, which initially planned to unveil the technology on the CT6 in late 2016, said in January it would not unveil Super Cruise until 2017. More»

Auto parts maker Delphi Automotive Plc and Israeli technology firm Mobileye NV will put an Intel Corp chip at the heart of their joint effort to produce self-driving vehicles by 2019, the companies said on Tuesday. The move is a boost for the world's largest semiconductor maker, which is also working with German luxury car maker BMW AG and Mobileye on self-driving technology, but has not been able to extend its broader chip dominance into the fast-emerging autonomous vehicle market. Companies from Alphabet Inc's Google to Uber Technologies Inc and Tesla Motors Inc are vying to put autonomous vehicles on U.S. roads, which could radically reshape transportation across the country. Intel will provide a "system on chip" for autonomous vehicle systems that Delphi and Mobileye are developing together, Glen De Vos, Delphi's vice president of engineering, told Reuters. More»
