Scam artists reportedly stole 19 million worth of iPhones

Here’s how to clean it Aug 31 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors See All • The iPhone XS Max could fetch hundreds of dollars on the black market. CNET A New York crime ring that allegedly stole hundreds of iPhones over the past seven years has been busted, according to Quartz. All told, the group reportedly got its hands on more than $19 million worth of the devices.Six people were charged in the case, which was filed by federal prosecutors in New York state in April. The complaint was just unsealed, according to Quartz. The felony charges range from mail fraud to conspiracy to identity theft.It’s not unusual for scammers to focus their efforts on Apple’s iPhones given the device’s high price tag, which can run as much as $1,450 per phone. Just a couple of months ago, a pair of Chinese engineering students studying in Oregon allegedly conned Apple out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by exchanging counterfeit iPhones for new ones. And last year, another New York group was nabbed for allegedly stealing more than $1 million worth of iPhones.The group that was most recently caught reportedly ran a scam in which some members used stolen identities to pose as cellphone subscribers. With fake IDs and debit cards they’d allegedly go to mobile phone stores across the US and say they wanted to upgrade their phones to a new iPhone. Then they reportedly shipped the iPhones back to the crime ring’s New York headquarters. People there would allegedly sell the iPhones on the black market.The cellphone subscribers whose identities were stolen ended up being charged for the upgraded phones, according to Quartz. The crime ring reportedly signed the victims up for monthly payments, so that they wouldn’t notice the charges right away.  Court filings didn’t specify how many people were allegedly affected and how many phones were reportedly stolen, but in one incident 250 phones were discovered in dozens of packages being sent to New York. The crime ring was ultimately busted by an unnamed person who worked at an overnight shipping service and became suspicious of all of the packages being sent out of state that weren’t addressed to a physical business or home address.A trial is pending for the six people charged in the scam, according to Quartz. They all pleaded not guilty and were released on $100,000 bonds.Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment. reading • Scam artists reportedly stole $19 million worth of iPhones Applelast_img read more

Google appears to have leveraged Android dominance in India Antitrust watchdog

first_imgVisitors pass by the logo of Google at the high profile startups and high tech leaders gathering, Viva Tech,in Paris, France May 16, 2019.ReutersGoogle appears to have misused its dominant position in India and reduced the ability of device manufacturers to opt for alternate versions of its Android mobile operating system, Indian officials found before ordering a wider probe in an antitrust case.A 14-page order from the Competition Commission of India (CCI), reviewed by Reuters this week, found Google’s restrictions on manufacturers seemed to amount to imposition of “unfair conditions” under India’s competition law.Reuters reported last month that the CCI had launched a probe in April against Google for its alleged abuse of Android’s dominant position to block rivals, but the contents of the directive detailing the initial assessment upon which that investigation was ordered have not been previously revealed.The Indian case is similar to one Google faced in Europe, where regulators imposed a $5 billion fine on the company for forcing manufacturers to pre-install its apps on Android devices. Google has appealed against the verdict.By making pre-installation of Google’s proprietary apps conditional, Google “reduced the ability and incentive of device manufacturers to develop and sell devices operated on alternate versions of Android”, the CCI said in the order. “It amounts to prima facie leveraging of Google’s dominance”.Asked for comment, Google referred Reuters to its statement last month, in which it said Android had enabled millions of Indians to connect to the internet by making mobile devices more affordable. Google looked forward to working with the CCI “to demonstrate how Android has led to more competition and innovation, not less”, the company said at the time.The CCI did not respond to a request for comment.While the order, dated April 16, called for a wider probe against Google, the watchdog’s investigations unit could still clear Google of any wrongdoing.The amount of any fine that could be imposed on Google if the CCI rules against it was not clear.ANDROID DOMINANCEAndroid, used by device makers for free, features on about 88 percent of the world’s smartphones. In India, about 99 percent of the smartphones sold this year used the platform, Counterpoint Research estimates.In the EU case, regulators said Google forced manufacturers to pre-install Google Search and its Chrome browser, together with its Google Play app store, on Android devices, giving it an unfair advantage.In the Indian case, Google argued that Android was an open source platform and pre-installation obligations were “limited in scope”, the CCI order said.The CCI said that complainants in the Indian case – which according to sources involve more than one person – have alleged that Google engaged in abusive behaviour similar to the kind outlined in the European case. They said Google was engaged in anti-competitive practices “with the aim of cementing Google’s dominant position”.Google’s “impugned conduct may help perpetuate its dominance in online search markets while resulting in denial of market access for competing search apps”, the CCI said in its order.The investigations arm of the CCI should complete the wider probe in the case within 150 days, the order said, though such cases at the watchdog typically drag on for years.The CCI also said the role of any Google executive in alleged abuse of the Android platform should also be examined.The investigation is not the only antitrust headache for the Mountain View, California-based company in one of its key growth markets. Last year, the CCI imposed a fine of 1.36 billion rupees ($20 million) on Google for “search bias” and abuse of its dominant position.Google appealed against that order, saying the ruling could cause it “irreparable” harm and reputational loss. That appeal is still pending in an Indian tribunal.last_img read more

Khaleda nomination rejection part of govts blueprint

first_imgLogo of BNPThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Sunday alleged that its chairperson Khaleda Zia’s nomination papers have been cancelled as part of government blueprint to hold a lopsided election, reports UNB.”We think it’s an ill-motivated decision. Our leader’s (Khaleda Zia) nomination papers have been rejected as part of government a master plan and a blueprint to keep her away from the election,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Addressing a press conference at the BNP Naya Paltan office, he also alleged their party’s some other popular candidates’ nomination papers have also been annulled as the government is trying to hold a unilateral election and stay in power by force.The Bangladesh Election Commission on Sunday trashed Khaleda’s all the three nomination papers filed for contesting the polls from Feni-1, Bogura-6 and Bogura-7 seats for her conviction in two graft cases.However, the party has alternative candidates in Feni-1 and Bagura-6 seats while it has no candidates in Bagura-6 constituency.Rizvi said the government is not willing to hold a credible election as it is desperate to retain power by any means.He, however, warned that voters will go to polling stations on 30 December braving all the obstacles to ensure the fall of the current ‘autocratic’ regime.The BNP leader said though the ruling party leaders and candidates are violating the election code of conduct, the election commission is not taking any action against them.”It seems the election commission has turned blind while the chief election commissioner and some other commissioners engaged themselves in works to help the government,” he observed.Rizvi said the government has established its control over the EC, police and civil administrations like a ghost to manipulate the election results in its favour.last_img read more

Stretch Of Yale Street Closer To Becoming Green Corridor

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Edel HowlinJonathan Smulian with the Houston Heights Association wants part of Yale Street be designated a “green corridor.”Some 500 trees line both sides of Yale Street in the Heights. They were planted by residents in 1987.“And with the street changing its character very quickly, we felt that we should try to get more protection for the trees which line the street,” said Jonathan Smulian with the Urban Forestry Committee of the Houston Heights Association.A couple of years ago, the group found a provision in the city’s code of ordinances that had never been used: It allows for the designation of a “green corridor,” where trees with 15 inches or more diameter may not be cut down without the approval of the city’s parks department and replacing them or paying a fee.The group collected signatures from commercial property owners along Yale between Sixth and 19th Street, a 1.6 mile stretch, to present to the city.Seventy-six percent were in favor of the designation, just enough to meet the “green corridor” criteria.On Wednesday, Smulian and other supporters spoke at a public hearing before City Council.Council member Karla Cisneros liked the idea. She said it could be the first of several green corridors in the city.“We also need to think about potential corridors that maybe don’t even have trees on them that would help us then link these thoroughfares and create this network through our city,” she said.Mayor Sylvester Turner seemed open to the idea but emphasized it has to come from the residents.“This is where the people in the community – people along the streets, the corridor – are asking us to do it and simply asking us to ratify something they already want,” he said.Turner said he will wait to present the Yale Street green corridor designation for a city council vote until two or three weeks from now to make sure more residents will have an opportunity to weigh in.The ordinance does not affect residential homeowners or trees on private commercial property behind a designated setback.Editor’s note: This story was updated with more information.  X Share 00:00 /01:48 Listenlast_img read more

Houston Fire Department Considering Virtual Reality Training

first_imgBrien Straw | Houston Public MediaHeadgear used for virtual reality training.Firefighters enter an office on the 24th floor. Smoke is billowing on the ceiling. Quickly, they close the office door to contain the fire, and help employees escape telling them to stay low to avoid the smoke.It seems real but it’s all created by a computer and seen by a trainee wearing goggles.Houston firefighters might be better prepared to go into burning buildings, or dealing with multiple other emergencies thanks to training using “virtual reality.”“We can start to develop products and platform that continuously judge the caliber of firefighter that we have in the Houston Fire Department. That we can augment our training based on the data that we get back. And that can, as somebody gets near the end of their career and has this wealth of knowledge, that we can capture that and pass it on,” said Patrick Hagan, a tech specialist with the Houston Fire Department.The fire department is working with Houston-based HTX labs which develops training for a variety of safety workers. CEO Scott Schneider said the goal is to develop muscle memory, and uses the Vegas shootings as an example.“They should looking for the guy who’s bringing, six, ten suitcases in over a couple days. Who hasn’t had room service, but they don’t know to look for it. We need to go in and provide training on things like that. And we can do that in virtual reality,” Schneider said.The Houston Fire Department hopes to start using V-R training in 2018. 00:00 /01:10 Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Sharelast_img read more

Report In Harveys Wake Assisted Living Facilities Show Shortcomings in Emergency Preparedness

first_img X 00:00 /01:05 The AARP of Texas issued a report on how assisted living facilities in Texas failed to respond to Harvey and compiled a list of recommendations to improve emergency preparedness. Residents of Houston-area assisted living facilities faced harm, neglect and abandonment during Harvey, according to documents obtained by the AARP.  Sharecenter_img “In at least one instance, there was no staff in the facility and so residents were left to fend for themselves during one of the largest natural disasters this state has ever seen,” said Amanda Fredriksen, associate director of Advocacy for AARP Texas.In response to complaints, the AARP report recommends strengthening emergency preparedness requirements and enforcement for assisted living facilities in Texas. That includes ensuring fines to deter violations, improving requirements for response plans, requiring facilities to alert the Texas Health and Human Services Commission of damages or flooding and requiring inspection from the commission if a facility is, indeed, damaged. Fredriksen said better enforcement and requirements will protect the well-being and safety of seniors living in long-term care centers. “We would really encourage the agency that oversees them, the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), to look at the structure and the fines and enforcement there, and see if that needs to be changed,” she noted. According to Fredriksen, assisted living centers currently face less oversight than nursing homes since they are only regulated by the state. She hopes to work with lawmakers leading up to the next legislative session to beef up emergency preparedness requirements and enforcement. In its annual report, the HHSC also recommended improving emergency responses in assisted living facilities in the wake of Harvey.

From life to canvas all about love

first_imgRitu Gupta’s solo exhibition Empowering Love opens at the Open Palm Court of the India Habitat Center on the 1 July 2013.  Beginning as a self-taught artist, Ritu’s development as an artist has been possible purely because of her passion to paint, decorate, explore and express. Her paintings demonstrate the influence of the traditional art and culture in a style that is very much her own.  One has to note that the stream of Indian culture paintings and its message can largely traceable in her paintings. Though the works are her way to explore and understand Indian tradition, they begin to reflect the artists understanding of childhood, masculinity, femininity, union and desire. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The current series of works is called Empowering Love, the journey is no longer sharp and steep. One can see the artist settling down into an understanding of human form heavily inspired by the supple slenderness seen in the medieval Indian styles ranging from Chola bronzes, to Kangra paintings. However a key feature to note is that the artist does not seem to be making a school or style centric adaptation. Instead one is reminded of the early 20th century Bengal revivalists and their understanding of an authentic (traditional) Indian form in terms of being soft, supple and feminine (as against the hard(er) masculine  European understanding of human body. This series is devoted to the romantic (divine) love of Radha and Krishna, which in no way is explicitly referred to in iconographic terms. The reference is implicit and subtle.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe artist does away with traditional iconography and instead chooses to focus on the mood of lovers. This series is has very close references to the late Guler and Kangra school not so much in treatment of foliage, moonlight and the romantic mood.  Yet again, she makes traditional narrative her own and by now begins to show a certain mastery over the understanding of the human body in compositional and design terms. Her urge to play and appropriate takes over again and she focuses of backgrounds, detailing and decorative motifs. WHEN: 1 to 7 July, 11 am- 8 pm WHERE:  Open Palm Court, India Habitat Centerlast_img read more

Why do women fall prey to eating disorders

first_imgA woman’s desire to diet and seek a slim body may depend on the attractiveness of a romantic partner, a study has found, highlighting the fairer sex’s risk of developing eating disorders. The study showed that women who were evaluated as less attractive were more motivated to diet and be thin if their husbands or partners were attractive than them.Conversely, this extra motivation to diet did not exist among the women who were more attractive than their husbands. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAs for men, their motivation to diet was low regardless of their wives attractiveness or their own, the researchers said.”The results reveal that having a physically attractive husband may have negative consequences for wives, especially if those wives are not particularly attractive,” said Tania Reynolds, doctoral student at the Florida State University.The study offers productive insights about relationships in which a woman fears she will fall short of her partner’s expectations.Understanding the predictors that increase a woman’s risk of developing eating disorders and other health problems could lead to earlier assistance.”It might be helpful to identify women at risk of developing more extreme weight-loss behaviours, which have been linked to other forms of psychological distress such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse and dissatisfaction with life,” Reynolds said.last_img read more
