THE INFORMATION COMMISSIONER'S OFFICE (ICO) has confirmed that it's investigating the mega-breach at Uber that the crapsicab company kept hidden from customers. In a statement given to the INQUIRER, the ICO said: "It's always the company's responsibility to identify when UK citizens have been affected as part of a data breach and take steps to reduce any harm to consumers.
UBER IS practising its ‘Mea Culpa' once again, as it was revealed that a massive data breach, deliberately hidden under the leadership of now-ousted CEO Travis Kalanick, exposed the data of 57 million drivers and users of its crapsicab service. Bloomberg reports that Kalanick paid the hackers $100,000 to delete the data it collected and then failed to warn potential victims. No social security, credit card or trip info was taken but names and addresses were accessed.
WHAT IS FUCHSIA OS? Noone truly knows what it's for yet, but it seems to be heading towards being the successor to Android and Chrome - one ring to bind them etc etc. But Google's new operating system has a new trick up its sleeve. It will also run code made in Swift, Apple's programming language. If that's the case, although we won't necessarily be able to get iOS apps running on Android natively, it will be a heck of a lot easier to port them.
Not a great first experience with @Gett_UK - courier was lost. Asked him what he could see, his response was "I see lots of little people". I sent him a Google Maps link and still had to collect my package 20 minutes later from the chemist up the road.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
