Canadian Genetic Non-Discrimination Act Upheld

Long-time Slashdot reader kartis writes: Canada's Supreme Court upheld the Genetic Non-Discrimination Act (GINA) which prohibits under criminal penalty, employers or insurers from demanding or using genetic information. This was a result of a private member's bill in Parliament, which meant it passed without the government's support, and in fact both the Federal government and Quebec government (which had gotten it declared unconstitutional as outside federal powers) argued that it extended crim...

Weekend reading: Corona-crisis, round two

What caught my eye this week. T he US may be about to see another surge in Covid-19 deaths. This is clearly tragic from a human perspective. We might also wonder what it will do to the market. I’ve been pretty relaxed about the UK’s de-lockdown. Daily cases have steadily fallen, contrary to – soon forgotten – warnings at every stage that we were moving too fast. Indeed it was probably only around 4 July that we went much past where I’d have set the limits for the actual lockdown! Albeit partly...

Former Oracle cloud skeptics say its newly launched product is 'significant and important' to the market — and shows that it's becoming a more viable Amazon Web Services competitor

Earlier this week, Larry Ellison launched a version of Oracle's cloud that can run in a customer's own data centers.  This new product will present a competitive threat to a similar product from Amazon Web Services called Outposts. AWS is one of Oracle's chief rivals in the cloud market.   It could help Oracle capture a very lucrative segment of the cloud market before AWS, Microsoft or Google can. The product is good and costs less than competitors, analysts say. Even a former skeptic who use...

These lawnmowers are off to the races, and it’s going to take a while to reach the checkered flag

It’s 2,800 miles from Moorpark to New York City and six teams are competing to see who can get across America first and win up to $100,000.” But it’s going to be a long, grueling and really, really, painfully slow race because the top speed for these competitors reaches barely above turtle pace as they all ride 17.5 horsepower Craftsman T110 lawnmowers that top out at 5.5 miles per hour. And speed isn’t going to be the only thing lacking since the racers won’t have any money for gas, food or she...

Amazon told employees to delete TikTok from their phones — then walked back the policy and said it was an 'error' (AMZN)

Amazon told employees in an email on Friday that they had to delete TikTok from phones they use to access their work email because of "security risks," The New York Times reported.

Google’s Fitbit deal could avoid EU antitrust probe by agreeing not to use health data for ads

Signal's New PIN Feature Worries Cybersecurity Experts

Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai, writing for Vice: Ever since NSA leaker Edward Snowden said "use Signal, use Tor," the end-to-end encrypted chat app has been a favorite of people who care about privacy and need a chat and calling app that is hard to spy on. One of the reasons security experts recommended Signal is because the app's developers collected -- and thus retained -- almost no information about its users. This means that, if subpoenaed by law enforcement, Signal would have essentially no...
