Always Free To Place a Hit On Someone
It clips onto the back of the Switch and has an integrated kickstand that replaces the Switch's kickstand. MyCharge says the PowerGame "will extend your gaming by up to 10 hours," is built around a 7,000mAh battery, and recharges via USB-C.In terms of pure charging value, you can certainly pick up external battery packs that cost less and deliver more juice. For example, you can buy the Aukey 10,000mAh Power Bank for $30, the Anker PowerCore 13000 for $38 or the RAVPower 20100 Portable Charger for $52. But they don't attach to your Switch. Nor do they have a built-in kickstand.A more apple to apples comparison may be the Insten Powerbank, which isn't as elegant as the PowerGame but does integrate a Switch stand and has a larger 10,000mAh battery for only $33. MyCharge generally makes good products, so the PowerGame should be durable. But I'll confirm just how well it's built and whether it can really deliver up to 10 hours of battery life as soon as I get my hands on a review sample.
Facebook considered charging companies for access to user data several years ago, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing internal Facebook emails in an unredacted court document.Facebook employees also discussed encouraging advertisers to spend more money on the service in exchange for increased access to user information, the emails in the document reportedly show. Monetizing its user data would mark a dramatic about-face of the social media giant's longstanding policy of not selling that information.During testimony before Congress in April about the company's data handling practices in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said: "I can't be clearer on this topic. We don't sell data, that's not how advertising works."
Facebook said the conversations included in the emails were from years ago and that the company ultimately decided against charging for access to user data. The company also said the documents are being presented in a misleading way, without context."Evidence has been sealed by a California court so we are not able to disprove every false accusation," Konstantinos Papamiltiadis, Facebook's director of developer platforms and programs, said in a statement. "We stand by the platform changes we made in 2015 to stop a person from sharing their friends' data with developers. Any short-term extensions granted during this platform transition were to prevent the changes from breaking user experience.""To be clear, Facebook has never sold anyone's data," Konstantinos said. "Our APIs have always been free of charge and we have never required developers to pay for using them, either directly or by buying advertising."
The emails are reportedly included in a cache of internal Facebook documents seized recently by a representative of the UK Parliament. The seized documents were obtained during the discovery process in a lawsuit filed by defunct app maker Six4Three that claims Facebook created privacy loopholes that allowed Cambridge Analytica to obtain Facebook user data.The documents are believed to include private internal communications among Facebook executives, including Zuckerberg, regarding Facebook's business model. They also contain an email from a Facebook engineer alerting senior people in the company to potential Russian interference on the platform as early as 2014, a member of Parliament said Tuesday.Damian Collins, who heads Parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said during a hearing Tuesday that the UK government might release documents "within the next week."
Huawei, the second-largest smartphone maker and one of the biggest telecommunications equipment suppliers in the world, had a rough start to the year. A widely expected deal to be announced at CES that AT&T would carry the Huawei Mate 10 Pro never materialized.Then reports surfaced that Verizon Wireless had also pulled out of a deal. In March, CNET reported that Best Buy would cease selling all Huawei products. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai proposed new rules that would bar broadband companies from using a government subsidy program to buy telecom equipment from companies that pose a national security threat (without naming Huawei). Huawei's chief financial officer, Wanzhou Meng, was detained in Canada at the behest of the US Justice Department and faces extradition to the US over claims of doing business with Iran, in violation of US sanctions. While in a Vancouver courthouse on Friday to discuss her bail, a lawyer with Canada's Justice Department alleged she defrauded US banks into making transactions that violated those sanctions, according to Bloomberg.
