New Online Accessibility Act In Dire Need Of A 2020 Approach To Website Policing

Since its introduction into the U.S. House of Representatives on October 2 by Congressmen Lou Correa (D-CA) and Ted Budd (R-NC), the Online Accessibility Act has received a lukewarm reception.

Myriad questions, misgivings and objections have already arisen over the Act, which seeks to add a Title VI to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) focused entirely on the accessibility of consumer-facing websites and mobile applications.

Most of these concerns appear to revolve around the imposition of lengthy administrative processes of up to nine months before legal redress can be sought and the resource capacity of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate thousands of complaints on an annual basis.

Online Liability Reform Would Make Internet Worse: Twitter CEO

Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey said in remarks prepared for Congress Tuesday that proposals to reform a law providing online liability protection could lead to more “harmful content” by limiting the ability of platforms to remove abusive material.

Dorsey’s comments came in prepared testimony due to be given at a Senate hearing Wednesday examining reform of a contentious law governing the internet.

The Senate Commerce Committee was due to hear from Dorsey as well as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google CEO Sundar Pichai on the law known as Section 230, which shields online services from liability for content posted by others.

Defenders of the law argue that it is a cornerstone of the internet allowing online services to flourish without fear of a flood of litigation, but attacks on the law are on the rise across the political spectrum.

Some political leaders and activists have argued that Section 230

As world goes online in pandemic, another mammoth chip deal

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Advanced Micro Devices is buying Xilinx for $35 billion in an all-stock deal that will combine the two Silicon Valley chip makers and accelerate an already rapid-fire pace of mergers and buyouts in the industry.

The deal announced Tuesday puts AMD in a place it wants to be; competing more fiercely with Intel at a time when a global pandemic is driving demand for tech ever higher.

More Zoom meetings, more orders online, and more upgrades for companies trying to meet new demands of millions staying at home has led to a seemingly insatiable appetite for computer chips.


“Joining together with AMD will help accelerate growth in our data center business and enable us to pursue a broader customer base across more markets,” Xilinx CEO Victor Peng said in a prepared statement Tuesday.

AMD and Xilinx is a huge tie-up in a season of massive

More than 100 smart irrigation systems were left exposed online without a password last month, allowing anyone to access and tamper with water irrigation programs for crops, tree plantations, cities, and building complexes.

The exposed irrigation systems were discovered by Security Joes, a small boutique security firm based in Israel.

All were running ICC PRO, a top-shelf smart irrigation system designed by Motorola for use with agricultural, turf, and landscape management.

Security Joes co-founder Ido Naor told ZDNet last month that companies and city officials had installed ICC PRO systems without changing default factory settings, which don’t include a password for the default account.

Naor says the systems could be easily identified online with the help of IoT search engines like Shodan.

Once attackers locate an internet-accessible ICC PRO system, Naor says all they have to do is type in the default admin username and press Enter

How Luxury Brands Can Maintain Exclusivity And Still Be Relatable Online

It’s exquisite, it’s expensive and it’s exclusive. These values confer luxury status on a brand. These same values ensure that they stay relevant and in high-demand by consumers.

If you take away the exclusivity and the rarity, then luxury brands would lose their luster – so to speak. The reason consumers are willing to spend on diamonds and other exotic stones is because of their scarcity, and exclusivity. This is the fundamental foundation upon which the entire idea of luxury is based upon. In short, luxury is when someone owns something very exclusive or very rare.

Prior to the present time, accessing luxury brands was a not as easy as it is today. In fact, many consumers were

What do an online recipe for banana bread and a host of tips for making it have to do with helping survivors of domestic violence?

Recognizing that it’s not uncommon for an abuser to track a partner’s phones and browsing history, the Vernon Area Public Library in Lincolnshire and Highland Park-based North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic have teamed up to create BananaBreadHelp.com, an inconspicuous-looking website that lets survivors seek help without leaving telltale digital bread crumbs behind.

At first blush, the site appears exactly as billed — it opens to an image of sliced bread atop a cutting board, with a list of ingredients and instructions below. Above it are links labeled “Start with the Best Bananas,” “Kitchen Helpers” and “Baking Tips.”

But look closer and you’ll see not all is as it seems. Click the links and you’ll find subtly disguised videos offering information
