Fragmentation is threatening the uptake of Google's Android P

Google to roll out ''Take a Break'' feature for YouTubers

With the number of Android users in Australia around 10 million, if Google were to pay to collect their data, the price tag at current data costs would be somewhere between $432 and $540 million annually.

Fortune quoted Google's response: "Any location data that is sent back to Google location servers is anonymized and is not tied or traceable to a specific user". Now, Google is being investigated for allegedly tracking Android phone users. This way, Google tracks Android users without using the phone's location service, the software company claims. In March, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in Oracle's favour, ruling that Google did, in fact, steal intellectual property from Oracle "when it adopted Java naming protocols for Android app developers". Users can choose to use Google's Location Service on Android devices to provide a network-based location.

White House adviser: USA wants China trade deal as talks resume
In retaliation, China announced its decision to impose 25 per cent tariffs on a total of 106 goods imported from the US. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, criticized Trump for softening his stance on ZTE.

The Australian investigations stem from allegations made by Oracle Corp in a report provided as part of an Australian review into the impact that Google, owned by Alphabet Inc, and Facebook Inc have on the advertising market.

We discussed Google's utter disregard for your privacy in numerous announcements seen at I/O 2018 keynote, on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. Oracle added that the transfer of this information was eating into users' data allowance purchased from their telecoms providers-up to a gigabyte a month, which seems like quite a lot to go unnoticed. It is being speculated that Android users in Australia cough up about $445 million and $580 million for using Google.

The Mariners are 4-1 in their last five during game three of a series and 4-0 in Paxton's last four road starts. Cano and Ryon Healy homered for the Mariners in the second game, and John Hicks went deep for the Tigers.

Australian Privacy Foundation's head David Vaile noted that many mobile plans offer customers a few gigabytes of mobile data.

The country's telecoms told Reuters that they asked the web search giant to confirm the allegations.

'Avengers: Infinity War' stays strong with US$61 million third weekend
The film follows Gabrielle Union as a mother trying to rescue her children who are being held hostage by intruders in her house. Avengers: Infinity War , which was released on the 27th of April, has broken many records in box offices all over the world.

The report said the inability to turn off the location services in Android poses a risk for individuals who want to hide their location for security purposes, like law enforcement officials and victims of domestic abuse. Further, referring to My Account in the settings, it says that users have full control over their data and how it can be used. There is no evidence if the search giant has ceased such practices, or is still continuing with it.
