Apple App Store again face accusations of anticompetitive behavior

first_img Aug 31 • Best places to sell your used electronics in 2019 Best Buy Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR Last month, music-streaming service Spotify filed a complaint about Apple with European Union regulators, saying the Apple Music purveyor uses its grip on the App Store to stifle innovation, weaken competition and unfairly tax its rivals. Apple called Spotify’s claims “misleading.”The iPhone maker didn’t respond to CNET’s request for comment on Saturday, but a spokeswoman for the company told the paper that Apple treats all apps the same, including those from competitors. The apps in question were called out because they could grab too much data from a user’s device, she said, and the timing had nothing to do with the release of Apple’s screen-time and parental controls features.”Our incentive is to have a vibrant app ecosystem that provides consumers access to as many quality apps as possible,” she told the Times.Originally published April 27 at 2:28 p.m.Update on April 28 at 7:17 p.m. PT: Adds Apple statement.

Sarah Tew/CNET Apple is facing further scrutiny over whether it’s using its hold on the App Store to hurt competitors’ products.A Saturday report in The New York Times says that in the past year, Apple has targeted 11 of the 17 most downloaded third-party apps designed to help phone users limit screen time or oversee their children’s phone use. Apple either removed the apps from the App Store outright or restricted them in some way, the Times reports.Apple on Sunday refuted the report in a statement posted in its newsroom. In it, the company said it recently removed several parental control apps from the App Store because “they put users’ privacy and security at risk.” It had noticed some apps installed invasive mobile device management software on devices. Some apps fixed the issue and remained in the App Store. Those that didn’t were removed. You can read more about that here. The iPhone maker introduced its own screen-time and parental-controls features last June when it unveiled iOS 12, the most recent major update to Apple’s mobile operating system. On Friday, CEO Tim Cook discussed screen addiction at the Time 100 Summit in New York.The Times report says the makers of two of the App Store’s most popular parental control apps filed a complaint Thursday with the European Union’s competition office, with one saying Apple compelled it to alter its app in ways that made it less effective than Apple’s parental controls.

Oil and gas companies snap up North Slope leases on state and

first_imgTed Murphy reads winning bids for state and federal lease petroleum sales. (Photo by Elizabeth Harball, Alaska’s Energy Desk)State and federal oil and gas lease sales held Dec. 14 in Anchorage saw an unexpected surge of interest in the North Slope.Listen Now“The bids started to come in and they kept running down to my office going, ‘you’re not believing this,’” Ted Murphy, Associate Director of the Bureau of Land Management said. “We were surprised.”High bids in the federal oil and gas lease sale totaled $18.8 million — a huge increase from last year’s total of about $790,000.The sale was for land in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, where ConocoPhillips recently began developing the first two projects on the 24 million-acre chunk of federal land. ConocoPhillips snapped up the lion’s share of federal leases. But unlike last year, the company had some competition. It had to outbid a few smaller players like Colorado-based Armstrong Oil and Gas. Armstrong Oil and Gas is also pursuing development of what could be a major oil field on the North Slope with its partner Repsol, a Spanish company.Armstrong and ConocoPhillips also placed successful bids for state land on the North Slope. The Houston-based company Burgundy Xploration, LLC also bought up a significant number of state tracts.According to officials, this year’s state lease sale is one of the most significant Alaska has seen in nearly two decades. The state saw 402 bids for tracts on the North Slope, and winning bids totaled nearly $17 million. Including lease sales in the Beaufort Sea area, the state took in nearly $17.8 million. Last year, the state took in $9.5 million. The state said it was the second largest sale, by acreage, since 1998.Alaska Natural Resources Commissioner Andy Mack said he is very pleased with the results.Protesters in front of BLM offices in downtown Anchorage. (Photo: Elizabeth Harball, Alaska’s Energy Desk)“Very exciting stuff and it seems to be continuing the intense interest in that region,” Mack said.Governor Bill Walker also praised this year’s lease sale, calling it “great news for the state and the industry.”But several environmental groups objected to the lease sales. Nicole Whittington-Evans of the Wilderness Society said she’s worried about how oil development on BLM land could affect one North Slope community in particular.“The leases that were sold today are further surrounding the community of Nuiqsut in important subsistence use areas,” Whittington-Evans said.Another group, the Center for Biological Diversity, gathered outside BLM’s offices to protest the federal lease sale, saying it was inconsistent with the Obama administration’s goal to curb climate change.last_img read more

first_img Comments   Share   What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Each of the last seven NFC West championships have been won by either the Seattle Seahawks or Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks were division’s dominant team since 2004, winning four straight crowns before the Cardinals took over in 2008 and 2009. They reclaimed the top spot in 2010 while the Cardinals slipped back to the basement. Needless to say, the Cardinals understand the importance of Sunday’s game against the defending division champs. Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “We need to be able to get this W just to reestablish ourselves in the NFC West,” receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “It’s an important division game for us, we all understand the ramifications of that.”While a Week 3 game doesn’t exactly have the appearance of one that could decide a season, a win for the Cardinals would show that the team is much improved from last year’s squad and is ready to be the division’s top dog once again. But it won’t be easy.“They’re the defending West champions,” Fitzgerald said. “We have a lot of respect for this team and their staff, and they play really hard.“We know we’re going to have a tough fight in front of us.”If the Cards are victorious Sunday they may very well be able to put the Seahawks in the rear-view mirror as they head towards another NFC West championship.Arizona Sports’ Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this reportcenter_img Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right awaylast_img read more

Express Top News From inadequate warnings from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) to the BEST’s failure to remove defunct buses from waterlogged roads the BMC’s disaster management department has prepared a report on lapses by various agencies in tackling the heavy downpour in the city on August 29 and the inundation that followed Apart from ongoing inquiries into the Storm Water Drains department’s operations on the day of the flooding in the city an internal report filed by the disaster management department has charted lapses by other agencies including the IMD BEST traffic police Reliance Energy and Central Railways as well as offered suggestions The report has been submitted to Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta who has instructed Additional Municipal Commissioner Vijay Singhal to compile all the suggestions in the consolidated report on the flooding which will be integrated in the revised action plan Mehta said the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s plan of action will be revised on the basis of the shortcomings and suggestions “We will chart out an action plan and inform the agencies involved about the gaps and ask them to submit a report on how they intend to fill those gaps” said Mehta Since the flooding the Disaster Management officials have blamed the IMD for failure of early warning which could have helped them prepare for the heavy rainfall Referring to the predictions as inaccurate the report states that while the IMD had predicted that the city would receive extremely heavy rainfall in one or two locations the city received 333 mm rain on August 29 and more than 200 mm was recorded at 26 locations in the city “If the IMD’s warning had come earlier standard operating procedures could have been initiated which includes issuing warnings to people through SMS and posting rescue teams at dangerous spots” said the report The report stated that IMD predictions are given for the entire north Konkan region which makes it difficult to figure out how much rain the city will get “The IMD should give separate predictions for Mumbai and one representative from IMD should be present at the Disaster Management control room during extremely heavy rainfall for better coordination” read a recommendation in the report The document alleged that the Doppler Radar does not function properly many times during monsoon and suggested that IMD fix the problem When contacted KS Hosalikar Deputy Director General (Western Region) IMD said: “The demand for a separate forecast for Mumbai had come a few years back as well But after explaining to a court it had said the existing arrangement is fine Anyway as part of our city forecast we already issue separate forecasts for Mumbai Also we are connected 24X7 with BMC over hotlines This is quite sufficient If they have any issues it can be resolved over phone” Speaking about the Doppler Radar he added: “During the August 29 rain it worked for more than four days without any break It is a machine and there can be some issues This can be resolved when we have a second radar” The disruption in train services due to waterlogging left the city paralysed as thousands got stranded on trains and roads unable to go home The reason was attributed to sleepers (wooden planks) dumped in culverts near Parel station that had to be removed for the water to recede The BMC’s internal report also pointed out poor communication between the Central Railway and the Disaster Cell as well as people stranded on trains “The fire brigade rescued 250 people from 11 local trains and a mail express train The CR also asked the BMC to make arrangements for stranded passengers who were later accommodated at a BMC school near Sion railway station” the report said “There is an established regular channel of communication between Railways and the BMC During recent flooding also GM CR Divisional Railway Manager Mumbai Additional DRM Mumbai myself and others were constantly in touch with BMC officials and Fire Brigade as well” said Sunil Udasi Chief Public Relations Officer CR The faults of the transport and electric supply departments of BEST were included in the report The report stated that BEST had informed the Disaster Cell about all traffic diversions at once which made it difficult to inform the public “BEST should prepare a plan to tow away buses stuck on the road in times of heavy rainfall to relieve traffic congestion and should provide free bus service to stranded people” the report said Disaster management department officials said that owing to increasing water levels in certain areas the BEST and Reliance Energy disconnected electricity supply without informing consumers which caused panic The report says the Disaster Cell received lots of complaints of power cuts and BEST refused to take complaints beyond a point “The BEST should mandatorily give intimation to the Disaster Cell before disconnecting power supply Their control room should be operational for 24 hours and they can also set up a four digit helpline to address complaints” Hanumant Gophane public relations officer BEST said “We have stuck to the disaster plan in place In addition we were also in touch with the BMC control room throughout the day of floods It was our buses which helped stranded commuters reach home We did the best to manage the situation” For Reliance the report recommended that the Reliance Energy’s control room should inform the Disaster Cell before disconnecting power supply prepare guidelines of informing people in advance and raise height of electric substations On August 29 Reliance Energy had switched off some of its substations where water-logging had been reported A spokesperson said “To ensure safety of our customers we switched off some of our substations where water had reached dangerous levels Pumps were deployed to take out water from the substations” Another official of Reliance Energy on the condition of anonymity told The Indian Express that after the floods of 2005 the heights of substations had been raised particularly in low-lying areas However in case of heavy rains substations are switched off to avoid electrocution The report finally cited lack of communication with the traffic police as one of the many shortcomings on the day of the floods and alleged that despite the Disaster Cell’s request no one from the traffic police came to the control room to help “We had requested that a senior official from traffic police should come to the control room but no one came It became difficult to inform people about traffic updates and detailed information about traffic congestion in areas like Kalanagar and Vakola could not be obtained in time They should depute an official during disasters for better coordination” the report read Despite several attempts Amitesh Kumar joint commissioner of police (traffic) could not be reached for a comment Apart from addressing gaps with other agencies Mehta has ordered two inquiries on
