The GDPR Mess

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Internet,Law,Web     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ One Comment

With GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) being in full force since May 25, 2018, one must assume that the privacy and security of users are now fully protected. I think itโ€™s an understatement to call that claim an over-exaggeration. GDPR is a European regulation designed to protect the privacy of European citizens, giving them full — Continue reading ยป

Yahoo Mail Down Again

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Email,Web     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

It is hard to say anything positive about Yahoo since Marissa Mayer took over the helm. Useful services (e.g. Pipes) have either been eliminated or are just languishing (e.g. Mail). ย Today Yahoo Mail is down again. Alibaba's stake hasn't turned out to be the savior it was once deemed.

The idea behind Jet, a new online marketplace site, is simple. Borrowing from Costco's concept, Jet charges its clients an annual fee and in return ships products to customers with no mark-ups and in many cases with substantial savings over other shops, including Amazon.
