Facebook indicated on Friday that the scale of its data privacy issues was far larger than it had previously acknowledged, as it suspended tens of thousands of apps for transgressions that included improperly sucking up its users’ personal information. The company said in a blog post that an investigation it began in March 2018 — following revelations that Cambridge Analytica, a British consultancy, had improperly retrieved and used people’s Facebook information without their permission — had resulted in the suspension of "tens of thousands" of apps that were associated with about 400 developers.
SHENZHEN, China — Long before President Trump threatened to cut off Huawei’s access to U.S. technology, the Chinese telecommunications equipment maker was pouring money into research that reduces its need for American suppliers. Huawei’s founder says that the export curbs are making it a tougher competitor by forcing managers to focus resources on their most important products. Little-known to Americans, Huawei Technologies Ltd. is the No. 2 smartphone brand worldwide and the biggest maker of switching gear at the heart of phone networks.
The strike that has shut down General Motors plants in the United States since Monday is starting to ripple through the automaker’s supply chain, causing layoffs and production stoppages by parts makers and components manufacturers across the Midwest. "My whole plant is shut off," said Robert Jacobson, chairman of United Auto Workers Local 652 in Lansing, Mich. His local represents 228 workers at Android Industries, which makes instrument panels for GM. Other Android plants that supply GM factories in Bowling Green, Ky.; Flint, Mich.; and Arlington, Texas, have also been affected, Jacobson said. "They’re all down," he said.
Top officials of the Saudi oil industry held a news conference Tuesday and delivered a very upbeat message. Saudi Arabia’s production capacity, which had been crippled by last weekend’s aerial attack, would be “fully restored” by the end of September, according to Saudi Aramco, the national oil company. If that pace of recovery seems almost miraculous, it is. The attacks cut Saudi output by more than half. Analysts say that while the kingdom has been able to restore some of that output, the effects of the onslaught on two key facilities are likely to linger for weeks or even months. “We are certainly expecting some disruption and restriction to continue at least into November,” said Richard Mallinson, an analyst at Energy Aspects, a London
Online shopping giant Amazon revealed a carbon footprint Thursday that rivals that of a small country, and vowed to reduce the damage to the planet by cutting its use of fossil fuels. The company, which ships more than a 10 billion items a year on fuel-guzzling planes and trucks, said it has ordered 100,000 electric vans that will start delivering packages to shoppers’ doorsteps in 2021.
WASHINGTON — A sharply divided Federal Reserve cut its benchmark interest rate Wednesday for a second time this year but declined to signal that further rate cuts are likely this year. The Fed’s move reduced its key short-term rate — which influences many consumer and business loans — by an additional quarter-point to a range of 1.75% to 2%. The action was approved 7-3, with two officials preferring to keep rates unchanged and one arguing for a half-point cut.
WASHINGTON — Executives of Facebook, Google and Twitter told Congress on Wednesday that they’ve gotten better and faster at detecting and removing violent extremist content on their social media sites in the face of mass shootings fueled by hatred. Questioned at a hearing by the Senate Commerce Committee, the executives said they are spending money on technology to improve their ability to flag extremist content and taking the initiative to reach out to law enforcement authorities to try to head off potential violent incidents. “We will continue to invest in the people and technology to meet the challenge,” said Derek Slater, Google’s director of information policy. The lawmakers want to know what the companies are doing to remove hate spee.
WeWork’s parent company put its stock market debut on the back burner Tuesday, struggling to drum up investor enthusiasm for a fast-growing enterprise that spread trendy communal office spaces across the globe while piling up massive losses and drawing concerns about its CEO’s corporate governance practices. The We Co. dropped plans to begin its road show this week to market its shares for an initial public offering that had been widely expected this month.
When Dawn Ostroff began working the graveyard shift at a Miami radio station, her parents assumed her career in radio would be short-lived. The college student was awkward reading the news, but she honed her skills and kept her job. Four decades later, Ostroff is transforming the next generation of radio for the world’s largest music-streaming subscription company. Since she was tapped as Spotify’s chief content officer about a year ago, Ostroff has been charged with building an arsenal of podcasts to catapult the Swedish business into a market-leading position, not just in music but also in audio storytelling. Under her watch, the number of podcasts available on Spotify has grown to more than 450,000 titles, up from 185,000 in February. Th.
HELSINKI, Finland — “Happy hour” at the S-market store in the working-class neighborhood of Vallila happens far from the liquor aisles and isn’t exactly convivial. Nobody is here for drinks or a good time. They’re looking for a steep discount on a slab of pork. Or a chicken, or a salmon fillet, or any of a few hundred items that are hours from their midnight expiration date. Food that is nearly unsellable goes on sale at every one of S-market’s 900 stores in Finland, with prices that are already reduced by 30% slashed to 60% off at exactly 9 p.m. It’s part of a two-year campaign to reduce food waste that company executives in this famously bibulous country decided to call “happy hour” in the hopes of drawing in regulars, like any decent bar.
LONDON — A cyclist pedals furiously in space with only one mission: delivering sushi to a hungry astronaut. A man gets a pizza in a field after seemingly tunneling underground to escape from prison, and a woman receives a delivery during a car chase. Through the unusual series of deliveries, a voice-over says: “Order what you want, where you want, when you want it,” with text at the bottom of the screen warning that “some restrictions apply, obviously...”But regulators in Britain found the fundamental message of the advertisements for Deliveroo, the London food delivery service, misleading, because the service is not available throughout the country. “The ad must not appear again,” the regulator, the Advertising Standards Authority, said l.
