The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world down to its knees. From taking lives of millions to impacting livelihoods of billions, this invisible virus has affected in some or the other way each and every human existing on this planet. Economy-wise, the virus seems to have reversed time as the GDP graph of most of the countries headed south. Multiple businesses/shops were forced to pack their bags, as the world gradually passed through this tumultuous time.

The fear of unemployment hung like a sword of damocles on every adult as companies—to stay afloat and continue their operations—started letting go of their employees. Thousands and thousands stared at a bleak future as getting a job during this turmoil was a far fetched imagination. According to a CMIE report in April, around 121 million Indians

Apple, others seek to obscure sensitive data in Google antitrust suit

Apple and a number of major tech companies asked a federal judge overseeing the Google antitrust case to hide sensitive information from prying eyes — namely Google.

The companies asked Judge Amit Mehta of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to designate certain data used in the Justice Department case as “highly confidential,” reports Reuters.

A protective order would disallow Google employees from viewing private business contracts and other sensitive information that might be divulged in the process of trying the lawsuit. Apple, for example, already disclosed terms of its relationship with Google and expects to be asked for additional information.

The government could request documents pertaining to deals with competing search engines, including internal discussions at Apple regarding negotiation tactics, the report said. Access to Apple’s data could put the iPhone maker at a disadvantage when forging future deals with Google.

Boston councilors seek to make city’s surveillance technologies transparent

A proposed ordinance from several Boston city councilors would require officials to be forthcoming regarding the surveillance technology the city has at its disposal, including how it’s used, when it’s obtained, and how information collected is shared.

The filing follows incidents in recent years where Boston police faced scrutiny from privacy advocates regarding how the department secretly acquired and used new surveillance tools.

The measure would also provide clear-cut rules about what Boston Public School student information is provided to police and when — the product of longstanding concerns surrounding how school officials and local police cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Councilors say the provisions are needed companions to the city’s ban on facial recognition surveillance technologies the council passed in June, amid evidence that currently available systems misidentify people of color at higher rates.

“The basic premise is that we are misusing public resources and exacerbating distrust when the

Metallica Seek Tech Help to Make New Album

Lars Ulrich said Metallica have been trying to work on a new album for several weeks, but they were facing “significant complications” as a result of having to record remotely due to the coronavirus.

The drummer previously reported that the four members were sharing musical ideas via Zoom – which they already found limiting – but speaking during the CNBC Evolve Summit earlier this week, he revealed that technical difficulties were inhibiting their progress.

“We have been working the last six, eight weeks virtually,” he explained. “Being a rock ’n’ roll band and working virtually is not super-easy. Time delays, all these things make it really hard. The main thing we miss is being able to hear each other. … So, if we’re all four in a room together, we can connect with each other and we can hear each other. If I’m playing here in San Francisco, and Kirk
