Google Expands Europeans' Internet Amnesia Zone


Google is expanding the right of Europeans to be forgotten on the Internet to domains outside their countries, according to news reports Thursday. Searches made from European IP addresses for people whom Google has granted a right to be forgotten will turn up zero links, regardless of which version of Google is used. Previously, links from such searches were blocked only from European versions of Google. Users with IP addresses outside Europe will continue to see unedited results when their searches include right-to-be-forgotten links.

Amazon Throws the Book at Fake Review Writers


An “unhealthy ecosystem” has developed outside of Amazon and it has been harming the company’s website, Amazon said in a complaint filed last week in Washington State Superior Court. The suit alleges that 1,114 “John Does” placed fake product reviews on the company’s website. The common bond shared by the group of defendants is that they all “claim that they will provide reviews of products or Kindle books for any interested Amazon seller,” the complaint says. The perpetrators apparently have been selling reviews for as little as $5 each.

Putting the EU's E-Commerce Puzzle Together


A substantial number of Europeans shop online, but few make purchases outside their own country. The European Commission aims to change that through a broad initiative to create a Digital Single Market, announced earlier this month. One of the 16 steps the EC has taken toward achieving that goal is undertaking an antitrust investigation of the e-commerce sector. The aim is to identify potential anticompetitive barriers to cross-border online trade in goods and services such as electronics, clothing, shoes and digital content.

Android 5.0 Lollipop still hard to find, full of bugs as Google shrugs off security flaws for 60% of its installed base

Google’s Android team has advised outside security researchers that it will no longer fix security bugs found in Jelly Bean or earlier releases, despite the fact that “pre-KitKat 4.4″ software powers the majority of active users’ devices currently accessing Google Play.
