Facebook Reveals How Often the Government Comes Calling for Data

Facebook Reveals How Often the Government Comes Calling for Data | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Facebook revealed more detail on how frequently it gets information requests from government agencies in a public statement late Friday. In a post on the company's press site, Facebook General Counsel Ted Ullyot said it received between 9,000-10,000 requests over the six-month period ending on Dec. 31, 2012.

That adds up to roughly 1,500 requests per month. Ullyot said the nature of the requests from "government entities" is quite varied, including things like a local sheriff trying to locate a missing child to national security agencies investigating terrorist activity.

Andy Kessler: Professors Are About to Get an Online Education

Andy Kessler: Professors Are About to Get an Online Education | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

In The Wall Street Journal, Andy Kessler says Georgia Tech's new Internet master's degree in computer science is the future of education.

"Education is going to change, the question is how and when. Think about it: Today's job market—whether you're designing new drugs, fracking for oil, writing mobile apps or marketing Pop Chips—requires graduates who can think strategically in real time, have strong cognitive skills, see patterns, work in groups and know their way around highly visual virtual environments. This is the same generation that grew up playing online games like Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, but who are almost never asked to use their online skills in any classroom."

Apple Might Launch a Bigger iPhone, as Well as a Cheaper, Colorful One

Apple Might Launch a Bigger iPhone, as Well as a Cheaper, Colorful One | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Apple is looking into launching an iPhone with a 4.7-inch or even a 5.7-inch screen, Reuters reports, citing sources with knowledge of the matter.

The company is also considering launching a cheaper variant of the iPhone, that would cost around $99 and come in 5-6 colors.

The moves are described as being "under discussion," meaning they may never actually happen. If they do, however, it would mean Apple has more or less abandoned its position as the standard-setter in the smartphone market and become just another trend-follower.

Edward Snowden and the Underground High-Tech Economy

Edward Snowden and the Underground High-Tech Economy | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Booz Allen Hamilton has released a new statement on Edward Snowden, its now-former employee and National Security Agency surveillance leaker. In addition to sharing that the company fired Snowden yesterday over code-of-ethics violations, Booz Allen reports that the Maryland native's annual salary was $122,000 — far less than the $200,000 Snowden himself claimed to be making.

But the reality is, Snowden is part of a larger economy that tech companies and members of Congress ignore when they discuss high-skilled jobs and immigration. As more of the broader economy moves toward an IT-reliant future, many of the job market's more mundane openings are also falling into the science, technology, math and engineering categories.

Apple announces iOS 7, 'biggest change' since the introduction of the iPhone, coming this fall

Apple announces iOS 7, 'biggest change' since the introduction of the iPhone, coming this fall | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

Apple has officially taken the wraps off of iOS 7 at its Worldwide Developer Conference today. iOS 7 is the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system that debuted back in 2007 on the original iPhone. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, iOS 7 is the biggest change to the platform since the iPhone was introduced five years ago. The new design is evident in everything from sharper, flatter icons, slimmer fonts, a new slide-to-unlock function, and a new control panel that slides up from the bottom of the screen for frequently accessed settings. The stock apps have all been redesigned — including a major revamp of the weather app with new animations that are scarily reminiscent of Yahoo's great-looking Weather app graphics.

In addition to a more flexible work schedule, freelancers tend to be happy.

3 Rules for Creating a Beautiful Online Portfolio | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

If you're a creative professional — e.g. a designer, photographer, writer or advertising exec — you'll likely need to show an online portfolio as part of the application process for any job.

It's standard practice these days for recruiters to Google candidates' names to see what they can dig up. And when they do, having a website that shows off the articles you've written, campaigns you've been a part of or other past work you're particularly proud of can be a huge asset.

New Android Trojan Downloads Other Malware and Spreads via Bluetooth

New Android Trojan Downloads Other Malware and Spreads via Bluetooth | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it
IT security firm Kaspersky has discovered the "most sophisticated" Android trojan yet.

dentified by Kaspersky as "Backdoor.AndroidOS.Obad.a," the mobile menace can send SMS to premium-rate numbers, download other malware and install them on the infected device, as well as send malware to other devices via Bluetooth, and remotely perform commands in the console.

Obad is also extremely well concealed, by means of code obfuscation, and it uses several previously undocumented security holes in the Android operating system to make it very hard to analyze.
