Lawyer for Philippines hit-man files complaint against Duterte at ICCBy Clare Baldwin and Stephanie van den Berg HONG KONG/THE HAGUE (Reuters) - A Philippines lawyer filed a complaint at the International Criminal Court (ICC) on Monday against President Rodrigo Duterte and senior officials, accusing them of mass murder in a nationwide anti-drugs crackdown. Attorney Jude Sabio said in the 77-page complaint that Duterte "repeatedly, unchangingly and continuously" committed crimes against humanity and that under him, killing drug suspects and other criminals has become "best practice". Sabio is the lawyer for Edgar Matobato, a man who has testified in the Philippines Senate that he was part of a hit squad that operated on Duterte's orders.

Comcast knows you’ll pay anything for good Wi-Fi

Comcast knows you’ll pay anything for good Wi-FiA new survey commissioned by Comcast has ranked apartment-dweller's need for good internet, relative to other niceties like basic hygiene. The conclusion seems to be that good Wi-Fi and high-speed internet are viewed as being the most critical. Comcast probably commissioned this survey to show how relevant its brand is to millennials or something, but the only actual truth to be found is this: Comcast knows that you will put up with basically anything to get good internet, so it's going to squeeze you for every last penny. The survey polled 2015 building managers and developers in the US about what features are the most important for prospective renters. A majority (59%) had either Wi-Fi access or fast internet as the most important feature, comfortably beating out a washer-dryer in unit as the must-have. This isn't so much a statement on the value of technology as it is a stunning indictment of broadband technology in the US. In a supposedly technology-literate, competitive, first-world country, access to the internet should be a given. But thanks to the oligopoly of cable companies that control access to the internet with very little regional competition, you're often left with little or no choice of cable providers. That means that if Verizon or Comcast only choose to supply your building with a 10Mbps, you're out of luck. So really, this survey just confirms to Comcast an important fact about its customers: it doesn't matter how bad the customer service is or if it flat-out calls its customers idiots: you don't have any choice and you need internet, so pucker up, lucky consumers.

T-Mobile keeps growing like crazy

T-Mobile keeps growing like crazy

T-Mobile's results for the first three months of 2017 are out, and it's good news for anyone wearing a magenta onesie. The company is once again the industry leader for customers added and net revenue, while total income was up by nearly 50%. Coming just after T-Mobile bought up new spectrum nation-wide for a great deal, it means T-Mobile's in a stellar place to challenge Verizon and AT&T.

Financially, T-Mobile had a great quarter. Total revenue and service revenue were at $9.6 billion and $7.3 billion respectively, best in the industry and up 11% for the company. Net income was $698 million, which is a remarkable 46% better than a year ago.

More promisingly for the long term, T-Mobile added a net 1.1 million lines in the first quarter. That's particularly significant given that Verizon and AT&T both started offering unlimited data plans in February, which should have been an existential threat to T-Mobile's signature unlimited plan.

Looking forward, things are only going to get better for T-Mobile. It's already spent $8 billion to acquire new spectrum in the valuable 600MHz band, which should finally narrow the gap in cell service between T-Mobile and Verizon. A new nationwide low-frequency network will work better in rural areas and indoors, the only places Verizon has had an edge for years.

From a business perspective, T-Mobile is in excellent health. The question for consumers is whether prices will remain low and competition fierce when T-Mobile owns the country, or if it will become like every other telecoms giant at that point.

Afghan Taliban's brazen attack eclipses Trump's 'mother of all bombs'By Josh Smith and Hamid Shalizi KABUL (Reuters) - Eight days after the U.S. military dropped its largest ever conventional bomb on suspected Islamic State fighters in eastern Afghanistan, Taliban militants breached an army base in the north of the country and killed scores of local soldiers. To Afghan and other critics of President Donald Trump's apparent indecision over how to win a seemingly intractable war, Friday's assault - the worse of its kind since the Taliban were ousted in 2001 - was evidence he was getting it wrong. "The biggest threat to the security and stability of this country is the Taliban insurgents, not Daesh forces," said Mirwais Yasini, an influential Afghan member of parliament from Nangarhar province, using an Arabic term for Islamic State.

Uber denies tracking users after they deleted the iPhone app

Uber denies tracking users after they deleted the iPhone app

Uber is in a dark place right now, having to defend itself against a wide range of allegations as various execs continue to abandon the company. Uber is conducting an internal investigation on sexism and harassment in the workplace, while Google is suing the company for having allegedly conspired to steal critical self-driving technology.

A new report over the weekend revealed that Uber wanted to keep track of iPhone users even after they uninstalled the app, and the company went as far as trying to deceive Apple about its intentions. However, Apple got wind of the feature, which won Uber CEO Travis Kalanick an embarrassing meeting with Tim Cook.

In early 2015, Apple’s CEO threatened to remove the app from the App Store unless Uber abandoned its privacy-infringing practices. And Kalanick swiftly accommodated Apple’s needs. After all, without an iPhone app, Uber’s entire business would be crushed.

In a response to The New York Times report, Uber said it never tracked Uber users who deleted the application. Instead, Uber told TechCrunch that it used a fingerprinting technique to tell fraudulent Uber accounts apart from real ones.

“We absolutely do not track individual users or their location if they’ve deleted the app,” an Uber spokesperson said. “As the New York Times story notes towards the very end, this is a typical way to prevent fraudsters from loading Uber onto a stolen phone, putting in a stolen credit card, taking an expensive ride and then wiping the phone — over and over again. Similar techniques are also used for detecting and blocking suspicious logins to protect our users’ accounts. Being able to recognize known bad actors when they try to get back onto our network is an important security measure for both Uber and our users.”

Uber told TechCrunch that it still uses a form of device fingerprinting to detect fraudulent behavior. If an iPhone was associated with fraud in the past, a new sign-up from that device should raise a red flag, the company said.

The practice has been modified to comply with Apple’s demands, Uber noted. But that doesn't rule out the possibility that a previous version of this fingerprinting technique was used to track users outside of the scope of what would be expected of a mobile app.

Sudo Security Group's Will Strafach explained that what Uber did was to abuse certain iOS resources to track users between uninstall and reinstall, not after the app was uninstalled.

“They were dynamically loading IOKit.framework (a private framework), then dynamically loading some symbols from it to iterate through the device registry (also very much forbidden),” the security researcher told TechCrunch. “They have code to nab a few things from the registry, but the only persistent identifier they actually use appears to be the device Serial Number. I believe that in iOS 9 and beyond, this is blocked by the iOS sandbox. Just to clarify, this also shows the initial concern of ‘tracking after uninstall’ was bad phrasing. The case here is tracking between uninstall/reinstall, which is still a privacy violation as Apple forbids this kind of tracking (that is why they removed the APIs for getting device UDID).”

Revised Mazda2 gets significant updates

Revised Mazda2 gets significant updatesDespite having been in production now for more than two decades, it's probably fair to say the Mazda2 isn't the best-known or best-loved model in Mazda's range, but the manufacturer is giving it some significant updates to try to challenge that perception. The current model is part of the car's fourth-generation, and it's sold around the globe under a number of different names and by several different manufacturers. The refreshed Mazda2 range goes on sale from June 1, and all variants will now feature Mazda's G-Vectoring Control technology, along with a number of detailed improvements to the car's suspension and steering to deliver improved levels of comfort and a more responsive feel for the driver.
