They have become the legal weapon of choice for the rich and powerful: non-disclosure agreements, used to silence the victims of sexual harassment and worse from an overbearing boss. Gagging clauses – as they are known – were originally designed to stop employees sharing trade secrets when they moved to another company, but in recent years they have become synonymous with hushing up claims of sexual harassment, bullying and other abuse, some of it potentially criminal. The contracts can be so binding, so all-encompassing, that victims, in return for a financial payout, are prevented from talking about allegations of conduct ranging from systematic bullying, intimidation and abuse to sexual harassment and even assault. Many women – and men for that matter – will feel that it is easier to take the pay-off and the gagging clause that comes with it, rather than try to fight the usually wealthy and powerful boss and their legal team and risk losing everything. … [Read more...] about Non-disclosure agreements: Everything you need to know about NDAs (and their misuse)

caption Aleksandr Kogan, who created a Facebook app that harvested data and gave it to Cambridge Analytica. source Business Insider Facebook signed a non-disclosure agreement with Aleksandr Kogan, the data scientist at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal. Kogan first referenced the NDA while giving evidence to UK parliamentarians on Tuesday about how an app he built gathered users’ Facebook data and handed it to Cambridge Analytica. This is the first time we’ve heard about the NDA. Facebook confirmed that it had a confidential agreement with Kogan, signed when he provided records showing he had deleted the app data. It suggests Kogan signed the agreement in the first half of 2016 after The Guardian reported the existence of his app. Aleksandr Kogan, the data scientist at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, signed a … [Read more...] about Facebook confirmed it has a confidential agreement with Aleksandr Kogan, the man at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica scandal
CHIPMAKER Intel warned Chinese firms about the Meltdown and Spectre processor vulnerabilities before informing the US government, according to the Wall Street Journal. The report, which cites unnamed people familiar with the matter, claims that select Intel customers, including China's Alibaba and Lenovo, were made aware of the design flaws before the US government was notified. This has fuelled concerns that the Chinese government may have known about the vulnerabilities before Intel disclosed them to the American government and the public, and could have theoretically exploited the holes to intercept data before patches were available. An Alibaba spokesperson told the WSJ that the notion the company may have shared threat intelligence with the Chinese government was "speculative and baseless", but this doesn't rule out officials intercepting details without Alibaba's knowledge. Lenovo said Intel's information was protected by a non-disclosure … [Read more...] about Intel warned Chinese firms about Meltdown and Spectre flaws ‘before notifying US gov’

Intel is better CPU-wise but even the latest Baytrail can't beat the Adreno 330. Their CPUs are also substantially more expensive. posted on 20 Oct 2013, 20:41 4 3. Shatter (Posts: 2036; Member since: 29 May 2013) Intel and AMD are working on killing arm. If you like performance/battery life you will go with an intel phone. If you want a cheap device or powerful graphics it will be AMD or whatever Nvidia puts out. X86 is a powerful platform, it killed everything off in the desktop/laptop market that was a competitor. It is now in consoles and will soon spread to mobile. Nvidia Desktop CPUs are coming in 2015, its only a matter of time before more switch. 7. woodshop20 (Posts: 459; Member … [Read more...] about Comments for : Lenovo signs non-disclosure agreement in advance of BlackBerry bid; what are Lenovo’s intentions?
